"He is causing a persistence by saying things mustn't persist, and he keeps saying, mustn't persist, mustn't persist, and it goes on persisting, and he uses more particles and more particles and more particles - and pretty soon the United States Army is wearing coal-scuttle helmets. Just like that. And the Government says, "Down with Karl Marx, down with Karl Marx, down with Karl Marx - and everybody is now going to be taxed according to his ability to pay."" The Phoenix Lectures – Lafayette Ron Hubbard
Ron Hubbard has written a lot on the subject of resistance and the above quote, written in the 50s is never as poignant as it is today. Even today it can be clearly seen in the USA that resistance to fascism has been so strong that the current US regime is now drawing closer and closer to a full dramatization of fascism. Even the previous President (Bush) was quoted as saying, “It would be easier if we were a dictatorship … and I was the dictator.”
In the US currently new laws or legislation is being passed to restrict the freedom of Americans ‘in the name of “the war against terror”.' Of course resisting “terror” means that the USA now has an internal people police force unparalleled in their history. A Homeland security force. Accountability difficulties making it hard for citizens to get any action to police brutality which is on the up rise.
Laws have just been passed by the current US President to allow the detention of any American Citizen without cause anytime. All these indicators show a slow trend towards more and more restrictions and a closer approach to dictatorism.
A past President signed an enactment called Presidential Order 51 which basically gives him Cart Blanche to run the country as a dictator and also put off future elections.
Campaigns are afoot to disarm every American citizen so only the armed forces and enforcement forces will have the right to bear arms. In Australia this has already been done. Of course it does not stop crime any more than enacting legislation does to stop crime. (Criminals have no sense of morals so are hardly likely to stop committing crimes just because a law has been passed. – In fact crime tends to increase where regulation increases. Criminal still carry guns and shoot people. Only in a disarmed society the general population has no way of defending themselves.) but it is a further step to controlling the citizens of a country.
Any resistance, especially when does not have the technology to understand confront, resistance and responsibility, is sure to result in getting exactly what one resists. The Western world has ‘resisted’ fascism just as the Church of scientology has resisted attacks from the government and others resulting in it going into agreement with the very principles it was bound to … resist.
And as it is all done on a gradient it is difficult to pin point exactly where freedom stops and a dictatorship begins.
Naomi Wolfe a progressive writer has pointed out the ten steps needed to turn a nation into a dictatorship and create a fascist state.
These ten steps are:
- Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
- Create secret prisons where torture takes place.
- Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
- Set up an internal surveillance system.
- Harass citizens' groups.
- Engage in arbitrary detention and release.
- Target key individuals.
- Control the press.
- Declare all dissent to be treason.
- Suspend the rule of law.
Currently all bar No. 10 have been put in place or are in the process of being put in place. No 10 is about to be.
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates.
Of course it is not all doom and gloom. Provided one is a ‘good’ citizen and complies with the authorities (note I did not say comply with the law as that will soon be suspended) then one has nothing to fear.
Most citizens of the US do not know this, do not care and basically do not observe, being stuck in the dramatization and interested only in their own appetite for sensation, gratuitously supplied by TV, media and the PR machine.
"I recall once seeing a Tammany Hall group (A New York Political Bunch whose symbol is a tiger) stop before the tiger’s cage in a zoo. T Cage was empty and they were much disappointed. I was there and said to them “The tiger is out to lunch.” They told those on the outer edge of the group. “The tiger is out to lunch.” They all cheered up, accepted the empty cage and went very happily on their way. Not one said “Lunch?” Or “Who are you?” or laughed at the joke. Even though it was sunset? I pitied the government of New York!" Familiarity - Data Series 7. Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
From our point of view then, being three feet back of societies head, it is important that we understand what is going on. We need to be very much aware of the dramatizations occurring and what the future holds.
Our position does not change however. We do not become embroiled in partisan activities to save the planet. We have a more pan determined approach. We are in the business of freeing people from the basic dramatization, not by convincing them or changing them or even making them aware of the existing scene around them. As people raise up their awareness they will see the as-isness for themselves.
It is more a case of a raising the individual up out of the dramatization effect so the individual is no longer the effect even when surrounded by it on all sides. We are not in the business of resisting the current or past regimes. We are simply taking people, on their on cognizance, out of the dramatization game by increasing their awareness to a point where they are no longer unconsciously playing that abberated game and where they have no desire or agreement to do so. It is like raising someone out of the mad so the see the mud around them and no long have to be part of the mud they thought created them.
The original (You will not find it in the new books) End Phenomena (EP) of OT 3 is Freedom from overwhelm. And this is truly the EP of that level. And this is what we seek for as many people as possible. The return of their own determinism and then less likely to have any agreements with games of a lower tone.
The APIS is designed for just this job. Being an Association it does little other than hold fast to an idea or concept. It does acquire a membership as a supporting feature and provides resources in exchange for that support. It acts as a vanguard to the philosophy it supports and it, quite frankly, matters little if the framework is ever destroyed as it has laid out the idea and concept which is now prevalent and, by agreement with many others, the idea and concept will carry forward into the future.
In the MEST (MEST: A coined term from the initials of Matter, Energy, Space and Time. In short this universe we are residing in) universe the APIS is, registered as a not for profit association in the USA and this will continue until the APIS is registered in many countries on this planet.
The more agreement the APIS has to its existence the more persistence it will have and the more it will pursue its purposes and goals as outlined on the website and the more those purposes and goals will become a reality
Persistence, not resistance is the secret to a long and expanding future for scientology.
