    Robert Kaufman died of cancer on 29 July 1996. During the final years of his life, Robert Kaufman revised the manuscript of his book, Inside Scientology (published in 1972), but could not sell it to a publisher. (The extent of revision may be roughly guaged by comparing the Tables of Contents.) In late 1995, with his health failing, he gave a copy of the WordPerfect files to Keith Spurgeon <> for distribution on the Internet. In August 1996, Keith emailed the files (which are in somewhat haphazard form) to Dean Benjamin <>, who edited the manuscript and formatted it for the World Wide Web in November 1997. Robert Kaufman was eulogized on alt.religion.scientology by his friends Paulette Cooper and Monica Pignotti.

    Re: Inside Scientology By Robert Kaufman

    Pretty good read so far. Haven't heard of this one yet.

    About midway down the Foreward he mentions a guy named James Meisler.
    So I used my google-fu and found this: Meisler

    If I read this right he got in trouble kinda recently? Or have I forgotten all the scilon jargon.

    Also, am I correct is reading that this James Meisler was the Tommy Davis back in the day? From here:

    Or was he just the head of some Org?

    Never public: L. Ron Hubbard Jr.’s devastating 1972 takedown of his father and Scientology

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, November 3, 2018


    We were inspired last week when author Alec Nevala-Lee chose the date of his book release to make public for the first time a really amazing document from Scientology’s early history. And since we had a book of our own come out this week, we thought we’d do the same.

    In the summer of 1972, a really curious thing happened. The year before, journalist Paulette Cooper had written her harsh expose, The Scandal of Scientology, and she then helped her friend Robert Kaufman, a former Scientologist, publish his own tell-all about the church, Inside Scientology. They were both then stunned when someone came forward to help Kaufman promote his book — it was L. Ron Hubbard Jr., son of Scientology’s founder.

    At that point, Kaufman was hoping his publisher would put out a second edition, and he thought it would be a good idea for Ron Jr. — known as “Nibs” to the family — to write a foreword to it. And so, for several weeks in the late summer of 1972, Nibs worked with Paulette to produce a 63-page manuscript about the origin of Scientology.

    Kaufman’s second edition never happened, and the essay Nibs wrote with Paulette’s help was never published.

    We quoted a few lines from the manuscript in our own 2015 book about Paulette, The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, but the entire 63-page essay has never been made public. But now, inspired by Alec Nevala-Lee, that’s exactly what we’re doing.

    You may be familiar with some of the things Nibs said about Scientology and his father which came later in his life — an infamous and kind of wild interview he did with Penthouse magazine in 1983 after he had adopted the name “Ron DeWolf,” or some things of his that we’ve published for the first time here, including a 1985 letter he wrote to the IRS. There’s also some bizarre material he wrote in the 1980s that his grandson, Jamie DeWolf, made public in an unforgettable performance.

    But in 1972, and with the help of a journalist, Paulette Cooper, Nibs produced a much more sober, and really devastating takedown of his father and the background to Dianetics and Scientology. We think you’ll agree that there are some real bombshells in this account. Nibs was born in 1934 and after 1937 he was largely abandoned by his father. But in 1952, Hubbard came back into his son’s life and asked him to come to Phoenix as he was transforming Dianetics into Scientology. For several years, Nibs explains, he was a major part of developing and delivering Scientology. But by 1959, he was disillusioned and broke, and he left the movement. In the 1960s, he even testified against Scientology in its tax battles with the government. And by 1972, he was ready to help his father’s critics, Kaufman and Cooper. But then, just weeks after finishing this piece of writing, in November 1972 he switched sides again and testified on behalf of Scientology (without telling Paulette about it).

    By the early 1980s, Nibs was once again causing problems for his father. He sued in 1982, claiming that Hubbard had actually died and that his Scientology minions were keeping the truth from the public. It wasn’t true, Hubbard was simply in hiding, but Nibs’ suit was, for a short time, one of Scientology’s biggest headaches.

    Hubbard died in 1986, his son died of complications from diabetes just a few years later, in 1991. But we think you will find this snapshot from 1972 a truly remarkable stripping down of the Hubbard myth by his own son, who was there during some of Scientology’s most crucial early years. Here is the document in its entirety.
