Tips for Sources After Submitting Tips Our submission system works hard to preserve your anonymity, but we recommend you also take some of your own precautions. Please review these basic guidelines. Contact us if you have specific problems If you have a very large submission, or a submission with a complex format, or are a high-risk source, please contact us. In our experience it is always possible to find a custom solution for even the most seemingly difficult situations.
What computer to use If the computer you are uploading from could subsequently be audited in an investigation, consider using a computer that is not easily tied to you.
Technical users can also use Tails to help ensure you do not leave any records of your submission on the computer. Do not talk about your submission to others If you have any issues talk to WikiLeaks. We are the global experts in source protection — it is a complex field. Even those who mean well often do not have the experience or expertise to advise properly. This includes other media organisations.
Act normal If you are a high-risk source, avoid saying anything or doing anything after submitting which might promote suspicion. In particular, you should try to stick to your normal routine and behaviour. Remove traces of your submission If you are a high-risk source and the computer you prepared your submission on, or uploaded it from, could subsequently be audited in an investigation, we recommend that you format and dispose of the computer hard drive and any other storage media you used.
In particular, hard drives retain data after formatting which may be visible to a digital forensics team and flash media USB sticks, memory cards and SSD drives retain data even after a secure erasure. If you used flash media to store sensitive data, it is important to destroy the media. It is ironic that in his introduction to the novel, Hubbard admonishes other writers that sci fi is more about people than about science and then he goes on to create absolutely wooden, almost-emotionless characters.
The best realized emotion is anger something that may accurately reflect Hubbard himself. What I found truly fascinating was the duality of Jonnie and Terl his Psychlo captor.
Jonnie is upright, able to do anything, a leader of men, smart—in short everything good thing that Hubbard liked to believe he himself possessed. Terl, one of the Psychlo overlords, is almost a parody of a sadistic, crazy-like-a-fox bad guy.
He is cunning, given to fits of temper, a substance abuser, cares about no one but himself, and is acknowledged as being mentally unstable. This being the description of Hubbard the Scientology leader, especially in his later years when this novel was published , one wonders how much of himself he realized that he was channeling into this character!
Incidentally, it seems that bad guys always smell bad. The Psychlos are furry, mangy and stinky.
By about page , I was wondering why in the world I was reading this monstrosity. By about page , I was actually committed to finishing and wanted to know how in the world Hubbard would wrap things up.
Turns out, Battlefield Earth is pages written in order for Hubbard to stick out his tongue at the psychiatric profession!
Hubbard spent his entire life trying to be the one in control, controlled by no one. Jonnie actually manages that and goes one better, as he not only runs Earth, but out manoeuvres other planetary races plus the inter-galactic bank.
Hubbard has fun with his depiction of the bankers they seem to be descended from sharks and have insatiable appetites , but he saves his venom for the psychiatric field.
No one knew the previous name of the race—they were known as Psychlos, after the evil people who conquered them from within. All non-security members of the race have brain implants that kill them if they try to even think about maths and sciences. This is richly ironic, as Hubbard probably wished for such a mind control device often, when dealing with his Scientology followers, who had an unfortunate tendency to think for themselves!
He worked hard to set up a very punitive system to keep them in line and thinking only what he wanted them to think.
