CADET ORG ED 48
11 September, 1975
To: All Cadet Org Hats
From: CO Cadets
Subject: Ethics Protection for Children and Pre Cadets
Reference: HCO PL 7 February 65 “Keeping Scientology Working”
HCO PL 20 April 65 Ethics – Review
No child or pre cadet may be directly assigned a lower condition by a Cadet Org senior without the following procedure:
Senior writes up specifics to the MAA as to why the condition is being assigned and what the condition is, what ethics gradient has been used to handle the situation.
The MAA must verify that the condition is correct and then routes the child or pre cadet onto ethics lines. An R-factor is given and specific reasons for the condition assignment are explained. The condition formula is fully cleared and the child is never left in mystery as to how to apply the condition or get upgraded and he gets targetted for completion.
The MAA must keep a board and 8C1 ethics and conditions cycles to full completion.
The reason for this order is children and pre cadets have been assigned conditions without any previous handlings and it has been found that some were left ignorant as to how to apply the condition formula due to MU’s2 and disagreements. Incorrect conditions have been assigned where the pre cadet has no stat, hatpack, checksheet, checkouts, schedule and his product had never been cleared with him.
This ED will protect children and pre cadets from injustice being forced onto them. After all, ethics is NOT punishment but is there to help.
One needs to know the tech of ethics to apply it. If you use ethics as a punishment, you will not have children reaching for the tech and willingly using it, so it does not comply with Keeping Scientology Working.
