The Freezone Association of Australia & New Zealand or FANZA as it is called, is the Australian and New Zealand branch of the Association of Professional Independent Scientologists (APIS).
FANZA is a non-profit association structured on the philosophy of Ron's concept of a simple organisation.
FANZA is a group of individuals, auditors and groups who believe they have the religious right to practice the original philosophy of Ron.
They believe that, since the death of the founder of the movement, the Church of Scientology has completely strayed from the original philosophy and purpose of the group which Hubbard first researched and developed.
As the members of FANZA do not wish to participate in the practice of an altered philosophy they have elected to practice their chosen philosophy independently of the church.
This is a revitalization of the original technology of Lafayette Ron Hubbard also known as Standard Technology.
FANZA are not in competition with the Church of Scientology since APIS practices the original working philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard as distinct from the profoundly altered version currently used by the church and called by the church, Dianetics and Scientology.
FANZA is, by definition, not for scientologists who continue to belong to the church. It is for scientologists who believe in and practice the original philosophy and working technology of Lafayette Ron Hubbard and have either left the church of their own accord or been expelled from the church. Also individuals who are seeking spiritual enlightenment through the religious beliefs and practices of the original philosophy and the technology relating to that philosophy as originally expounded by Lafayette Ron Hubbard, and who have no desire to be a part of the current church in its existing form.
FANZA believes that man is free to follow his own path, and his religious practices and beliefs are not constricted by any copyright monopoly, therefore new people wishing to seek enlightenment through the practices of scientology are not bound by law to attend only the official church any more than all Christians are bound by law to attend only catholic churches and all Judaists should be orthodox.
This means that the Church of Scientology under the control of the 'Religous Technology Center' and itself under the leadership and control of the private corporation known as the 'Church of Spiritual Technology', which promotes itself as a religion, does not have a monopoly on the religious beliefs and practices of scientologists simply because of the ownership of a few copyrights and trademarks.
The church has been quick to state in a court of law, that it is not a commercial enterprise or business but a religion. Yet it has attempted to apply laws reserved for commercial enterprises in an attempt to restrict the religious practices of others. The original working philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard is not in 'competition' to save men's souls. It is an applied philosophy and that is something which no man holds a monopoly on. Indeed as the originator of this philosophy has stated:
"... all we know of science or of religion comes from philosophy. It lies behind and above all other knowledge we have or use."
"For long regarded as a subject reserved for halls of learning and the intellectual, the subject, to a remarkable degree, has been denied the man in the street."
"Surrounded by protective coatings of impenetrable scholarliness, philosophy has been reserved to the privileged few."
"The first principle of my own philosophy is that wisdom is meant for anyone who wishes to reach for it. It is the servant of the commoner and king alike and should never be regarded with awe. ..."
"I know no man who has any monopoly upon the wisdom of this universe. It belongs to those who can use it to help themselves and others."
Therefore anyone has the right and the freedom to participate in APIS aims, purposes and goals and in the original working philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard without let or hindrance.
The purposes of The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists include:
Preserve, protect and promote the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard for future use so it is available for all mankind.
Establish communication and understanding among the members of APIS and members of other communities.
Promote and sponsor educational activities that alert and teach the general public about the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
Defend APIS from any attempt to inhibit its existence and expansion.
Assist in the defence of any of its members in the event of any unwarranted legal process to the detriment of the member on the basis of the member(s) exercising their legal right to practice their religion or philosophy and inherent and the technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
