My name is Charles Stickley. Contrary to rumors, half-truths, and wild-eyed confabulations, I alone am the author of the book Brain-Washing: A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook of Psychopolitics.
I first met L. Ron Hubbard when we both served in the US Navy in WWII and were sent on a secret mission. Delivered to Java by the destroyer USS Edsall, Ron and I went into the jungle to spy on the Japanese. We were detected and fled. Ron was machine-gunned in the back as we escaped to our rubber raft.
As we drifted 2,000 miles back to Australia and lived on rainwater and fish we speared, Ron and I had a long time to talk about the dangers posed by Communism and Communists. We both agreed that Communism was greater than the danger posed by Nazi Germany.
I became increasingly concerned about the Communist infiltration of America using polio monkey serums, fluoridated water, and Jewish mental hygiene. Accordingly, in 1951 I wrote and and caused to be issued a phamplet through my Keep America Committee of Los Angeles:
L. Ron Hubbard saw my phamplet. He contacted me immediately from his home in New Jersey. Ron shared my concerns and indeed we had discussed these matters years before in that rubber life raft as we drifted in the Banda and Arafura seas. Ron told me that the Communists had stolen his Excalibur manuscript in 1938 and were even now reading Dianetics. In fact, Khrushchev himself had offered Ron a “write your own ticket” deal that included a full laboratory if Ron would come to Moscow and work in brainwashing. Ron, a true American, would have none of it.
I quickly read Dianetics, saw its benefits, and became a Dianeticist and later a Scientologist. In 1955, Ron Hubbard delievered to me a series of lectures that had been stolen by his agents from Lenin University in Moscow. These lectures had been delievered by Beria himself and discussed how to brainwash and destroy the West using pain, drugs, and hypnosis. This is when I wrote Brain-Washing: A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook of Psychopolitics:
Seeing the brilliance of my work, Ron Hubbard ordered the Church of Scientology to widely distribute my work. Others too published my book. That Ron Hubbard is cited as the author of my work is false.
