(Excerpted from a briefing of 28 May 1968.)
The cause of war is incompetent government. The US does not have the will, really, to handle or clear up its strikes and its differences. It does not have the mental technology with which to do this. It does not have the organizational technology with which to do this. These are blank pages in Man’s history. He doesn’t know how to do them.
The failures of all civilizations are political failures. Sicily, with a hundred and sixty cities, went completely to dust one hundred years before Christ. It was still very rich and worth looting, but that was the end of the Greek civilization in the Mediterranean. The high tide of the Roman Empire was just being reached and actually was not reached for several decades after that. Barbarians had very little to do with wiping out that civilization.
Civilization after civilization has disappeared off this planet on the same note: they cannot handle their political affairs.
Our problem is continuing this civilization long enough to audit out its engram. We are interested in it because it may terminate itself before anything really effective can be done. When you have a government which no longer has the will to provide law and order inside its borders and when that is the principal and most powerful nation on the planet, coming right over the hill is war.
In its final agonies and disappearance, usually a nation involves itself in one long, prolonged, continuous war. It does not win these wars, it keeps losing them and losing them. But it has enough force and power to enturbulate every other nation on the planet. And unfortunately they happen to be armed with a bomb which has an overkill of one thousand times for every man, woman and child on the planet.
Our primary enemy is not the United States. We don’t have any enemies actually. We’ve got a few suppressives but they are not really enemies of ours. They are surrounded by Martians, stuck on the track with Martians attacking them and they identify all the beings around them as some weird personality. They are trying to be safe on the first dynamic or even trying to destroy their own first dynamic while trying to do something to all the other dynamics. It’s an inverse picture.
Therefore, our next mission will be to buy time for the planet. That is an awfully big chunk to bite. The political objective in which we are involved is to provide an auditing environment in which the engram on the fourth dynamic can be audited. I don’t think that you ever saw an auditor able to audit an engram in a room which had disappeared by a bomb blast.

THE SEA ORG
HANDLING SUPPRESSION ON THE FOURTH DYNAMIC
“We are making a safe environment in which ethics, tech and admin can be put in on a planet in order to be able to run out the fourth dynamic engram.” LRH
Throughout Scientology’s history, SPs have attempted to subvert the tech and prevent people from moving up The Bridge. But again and again, in country after country, those who seek to suppress mankind and thwart Scientology’s expansion come up against the one group they cannot overwhelm or beat when they stand face-to-face with the Sea Org.
The Office of Special Affairs network is headed by the Office of Special Affairs International and has offices in each CLO around the world. These units are staffed by Sea Org members, because historically, the safety of Scientology has been entrusted to Sea Organization members—because they have a level of dedication and toughness that is necessary to deal with suppression on the fourth dynamic.
This team of Sea Org members is achieving victory after victory on the external front through the application of standard LRH tech.
There is never any compromise when it comes to protecting the delivery of Scientology in our orgs through the standard application of LRH ethics tech. Being the top of The Bridge, and because of its importance to Scientology and to the rest of the planet, this is particularly true at Flag Land Base. And it was this unreasonable viewpoint which brought about one of the Sea Org’s most important recent victories.
The battle centered around a handful of SPs who had waged an unsuccessful campaign to drive the Church out of Clearwater. In the face of Flag’s continued expansion, their efforts became even more frantic.
Their suppressive assault began in the mid-1970s when the purchase of the Fort Harrison cut across the plans of local SPs to depress the local real estate market so they could move in and buy up the city cheaply. Reacting to our presence, they pushed through a city ordinance in the early 80s designed to give the city the power to control and manage any religious organization’s finances and operations. Of course, in spite of their efforts to camouflage their bad intentions, it was clearly aimed solely at the Church of Scientology. These officials wanted to be able to move in and take over the Church.
In the early 1980s, a Sea Org Command Team fired to form the Office of Special Affairs at the FLB to deal with these suppressives. One of the first actions was to file a lawsuit against the city.
This proved to be only the first skirmish in a tenacious, decade-long battle. Eventually, in September 1993, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a landmark ruling that protects the rights of all religious organizations throughout the United States. The Court blasted the ordinance and ruled that it had been enacted for an improper political purpose. The Court ruled 100% in our favor. They further found that the ordinance violated a portion of the U.S. Constitution which guarantees freedom of religion in America.
Not only had the SPs lost and the Church been totally vindicated, but Sea Org members in the Office of Special Affairs had brought about what has been termed one of the greatest victories for First Amendment religious rights this century.
These SPs, however, could not admit defeat. In a last, desperate effort, city officials tried to appeal the case, but the highest court in the land, the U.S. Supreme Court, refused to hear it.
Even then, they tried to carry forward with a small portion of the ordinance that had not been specifically declared unconstitutional by the courts. They were willing to continue wasting taxpayer money so they could be right.
The Office of Special Affairs, through the efforts of its dedicated Sea Org members, took the next step to get in their ethics. Special editions of Freedom were produced for the Clearwater area. Distributed widely to civic leaders, businessmen and taxpayers, a series of articles exposed the truth and the real motives of those who had been behind this attack.
The truth impinged.
The last few holdouts on the City Commission came to their senses.
They passed a law that officially repealed the ordinance. Scientology was totally victorious and the city paid the Church $635,000 to reimburse all we spent to get their ethics in and bring their illegal acts to a halt.
Scientology is today enjoying unprecedented acceptance and expansion in Clearwater. Clearly, the road to OT will never be blocked in the presence of the Sea Org.
ERADICATING EXTERNAL SPs
No matter where situations arise, Sea Org members work as a team to create a safe environment for Scientology. Keeping the route to OT open means protecting The Bridge at all levels.
In the United Kingdom, for example, one old-time suppressive tried for years to foist his lies about Scientology on the media and others. This year he was completely shut down by the courts. Unemployed and abandoned by his family, this squirrel had schemed to make money by hawking his lies in a book. But, the Office of Special Affairs had a court declare his book libelous.
Following a series of legal defeats, he was prevented from distributing his materials, and ordered to pay the Church more than 70,000 pounds in sanctions, costs and fees. He has now been forced into bankruptcy, joining two others who met the same fate in the last year after they were confronted by Sea Org members and would not voluntarily stop their squirreling.
LEGAL WINS AROUND THE WORLD
In Italy, OSA struck a major blow to the psych-backed enemies who have been trying without success for years to prevent Scientology from expanding in their country.
In a precedential ruling, the Supreme Court shut down attempts by psych-influenced prosecutors to portray the religious activities of the Church as unlawful.
This battle had begun in 1986, after CCHR started to expose the horrendous crimes being committed by psychs in Italy. The psychs recruited an allied prosecutor who ordered raids on Italian Churches and Narconons and closed them down. [1. The Sea Org Handling Suppression on the 4th Dynamic (ca. 1995).

There was and probably still is an international conspiracy to attack, black PR and crush Dianetics and Scientology.
The GO never really got to the bottom of this conspiracy despite the fact that the same stories and the same pattern of black PR emerged simultaneously internationally.
We know that the GO itself was turned and so we cannot guarantee that their search was either honest or well directed.
SOURCE OF ATTACKS
For a long time I have looked for a source of these attacks the Church has been experiencing.
There are numerous indicators that psychologists (who are under the thumb of the psychiatrists) have mounted attacks on Dianetics and Scientology and their organizations.
The J. Edgar Hoover attack of the mid-‘50s and onward was, I think, instigated by the American Medical Association and the AMA acts as a sort of parent to
psychiatrists and psychologists. It goes this way: The psychologists, to practice, have to remain under the wing and supervision of psychiatrists. Psychiatrists, to practice, have to be medical doctors and under the wing of the American Medical Association.
There are innumerable interlocking organizations, all adding up to the American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association and possibly the American Psychological Association, which interlock in organizations funded by the Rockefellers. I looked into this in New York in 1973 and was absolutely astounded at the number of organizations and associations grouped in that direction. Although they deny it, the Rockefellers also own a heavy share of the American drug industry which interlocks with the American Medical Association and at one time the drug lobby in Washington interlinked with the Food and Drug Administration in those FDA attacks on the E-Meter.
The original Commonwealth attack was from the British Psychological Association in Australia. The first attack on Dianetics was engineered by the Psychology Department of the George Washington University in 1950.
NATURE OF ATTACKERS
Now please take the following very seriously: In all of the years from 1950 onward that I was handling attacks as Executive Director, I never failed once to establish beyond any doubt the criminality and criminal background of any attacker. It became a very stable datum with me in investigating attackers to immediately look for their criminal backgrounds. At one time, in 1954/55, there were about 21 persons who were attacking the Church and almost casually I ran the backgrounds of these down and found that 18 of them had flagrant criminal backgrounds—and by criminal I mean criminal in the eyes of the courts or law. The reason why three remained outstanding is I got tired of the investigation. The last three were never investigated.
In South Africa a primary attacker was found to be an illegal diamond buyer. So the criminal background of attackers is well established.
You would undoubtedly find that the more serious litigants against the Church have criminal backgrounds of their own.
Criminals can be directly influenced by psychologists and psychiatrists both by blackmail and implanting (which goes on all the time today) and are easily used as pawns or patsies in instigating attacks.
Based rather solidly on their psychotic nature and their actions, attackers are engaged in actual flagrant crimes. It just follows, knowing the pattern of behavior of beings, that they did not just start to act that way when they collided with us. Such behavior is a repeating pattern and there would be all sorts of, at least, false reports, crimes and other matters in their pasts.
Some attackers may have been in prison or in institutions and when they came out, may have changed their names and identities. This is based on a knowledge of what such people do. Therefore it follows that their current names may not be their real names. This could provide direction that might be followed up with private investigators.
It would be of great benefit to actually run down the core of these international attacks.
It might be wise to turn private investigators loose along the lines as given above with this type of approach:
a) to run back all the connections of key attackers,
b) to run down their pasts for sure and for real to see how these interlock with any possible international conspiracy to suppress Dianetics and Scientology.
You may zero in on such a conspiracy and get to the actual instigators of the attacks. At the very least it would give you leads which would be invaluable.
Such an investigation might seem to be costly but I would think it would be very costly not to do it.

(Originally an LRH OODs item of 21 October 1970.)
We are tracing the money required to finance attacks on Scientology.
Apparently it comes through medical and psychiatric channels from drug firms.
These drug firms are now getting into trouble. The US Justice Department is making a bid to regulate them instead of the Food and Drug Administration.
It has been discovered that these big drug firms are the actual wholesale pushers and that doctors and psychiatrists act as their retail pushers.
This is why the Pope suddenly opened up on medical doctors in yesterday’s news. It is very satisfying to see the enemy getting more and more trouble from more and more people.
Medicine came into existence in the mid-1400s as Satan worshippers. And look at the number of people who have died since then!
