L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, sends a cable to the group's headquarters in East Grinstead, Sussex, telling them that he's no longer the leader of Scientology.

According to Hubbard:

"I retired from directorship in scientology organization two or more years ago to explore and study the decline of ancient civilizations and so learnt how this current one is going.

My conclusion is that they declined because of intolerance and inhumanity to man. Efforts to stamp out philosophy and bar out students is a shadow of the injustice soon to be visited on all.

England, once the light and hope of the world, has become a police state, and can no longer be trusted. I gave Scientology to the world with hopes of good usage. If it is a decent world, it will use it well. If it is a bad world, it won't.

I finished my work. Now it is up to others. Love, Ron."
