Link to the Project Camelot Interview of Dane Pots
The unusual name ‘Dane Tops’ is a pseudonym, but it is not of Project Camelot’s making. This fascinating story dates back to 1982, when a senior
member in the Church of Scientology blew the whistle on its activities… which over the previous several years had become more and more totalitarian
and repressive: a far cry from how its founder, L Ron Hubbard, had intended things to be - the techniques as they were once applied being described to
us by Dane as a vast, readily accessible array of powerful techniques for liberating and empowering the human spirit so that all mankind could
The now-famous “Dane Tops letter” or “Dane Tops debrief” describes how the Church of Scientology, over a number of years, was being taken over
by a mysterious force, and how Hubbard was deliberately marginalized maligned and removed from direct control of his organization – while
instructions apparently originating by him were fabricated with false signatures: never written by Hubbard at all.
Aware there was a hidden party taking Scientology down, Dane Tops blew the whistle: he typed out an inspired, detailed, 9500 word presentation –
and, long before the days of e-mail, copied it and posted it to 20 people. To his surprise, a chain reaction ensued and the ‘letter’ was copied,
recopied, and recopied again. In today’s terminology, it ‘went viral’.
During the next year it reached and changed the lives of tens of thousands of loyal Scientologists who - until they read Dane Tops’ analysis - could
not understand what was happening to Hubbard and to the organization to which they had dedicated their lives.
The ‘letter’ catalyzed a mass exodus of thousands of highly trained, talented and loyal Scientologists: in Dane Tops' own words, these people
were the very finest: the best of the best. They left ‘the Church’, many of them starting their own groups to continue to deliver the original
techniques which Hubbard had spent 30 years developing.
