Jeffrey Augustine concludes his series on the history of Scientology's private barge, the Freewinds. See his earlier parts one and part two.

In 1984 David Miscavige and L. Ron Hubbard were under intense scrutiny by the US government. Miscavige referred to this period in a speech to Scientologists at an IAS event on October 8, 1993:

Nine years and one day ago, the International Association of Scientologists was formed to protect and defend Scientologists and the Scientology religion. At that time, in October of 1984, we found ourselves under vicious external attack. From the media. In civil courts. And by the government. The attacks were of such intensity and velocity - so sustained in nature - that we knew our very survival could only be assured if all of us - as Scientologists - banded together to create a worldwide association. Only in this way could we gather the wherewithal to survive such attacks and hopefully expand.
