In London, England, in on June 23, 1960, L. Ron Hubbard addressed Scientologists gathered from around the world for a congress.
Mr. Hubbard made this observation to them at that time, one that seems all-the-more relevant than it did 54 years ago, as the level of ethics in society has deteriorated badly since that time.
“If an individual begins to observe or experience truth, he becomes incapable of being a slave because he can’t be hurt. He isn’t afraid of life.
“He’s ethical or moral or something like that because he’s ethical or moral, not because somebody’s going to punish him if he isn’t ethical or moral. That’s a different rationale.”
