Religion, morality and the state of today’s culture

I posted a link to an article yesterday about the decline of religion among today's youth.Although this may only be gaining public notice now, it is a phenomenon that has been going on for decades.In fact it was more than 40 years ago that L. Ron Hubbard looked into dramatic social decline as evidenced by increased crime and drug abuse in the wake of a concerted campaign against religion and religious beliefs."For the last hundred years or so religion has been beset with a relentless … [Read more...]

Thoughts about the 4th of July

When you think about what the founding fathers did, theirs was an act of immense courage. They literally risked everything to put forward a principle that had no precedent in modern history--that a government should be "by the people" and "for the people."When governments forget their responsibilities to the people, they fall away from their basic purpose.This video public service announcement on The Way to Hapiness expresses it in an interesting way. … [Read more...]

Some Thoughts as we Approach July 4

As we approach July 4, this article by L. Ron Hubbard speaks to a factor that puts our democratic way of life in peril. His article speaks for itself.The major breakdown of Western democracy is its habit of carelessly basing legal actions on false reports.Anyone can say anything about anybody and police powers and courts are liable to act on reports so false that a child could see through the lie.This was the most odious thing about the NAZIS. And this characterizes communist … [Read more...]

Are you the Problem or the Solver?

“That’s the make-break point of anybody’s life: when he stopped being a solver, and poser and solver of problems, and started to be a problem himself...."“A person is as alive as he has that confidence. He is as dead as he’s lost it.”— L. Ron Hubbard … [Read more...]

L. Ron Hubbard Quote on Truth, Morality and Ethics

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 … [Read more...]

Children Learn by Mimicry – So What are you Teaching Them?

Tad Reeves had this insightful blog on how to raise kids, I thought I'd share. Reeves runs the Scientology Parent blog.Something to consider: “A child learns by mimicry. Most children, unless they’re severely aberrated, are very good mimics. And they look at the adult and they try to use the adult as a pattern for their own actions. This is natural. Unfortunately, most adults around children have quite a few dramatizations. So the child may start now to mimic the dramatization…”L. RON HU … [Read more...]

What was that?

Ever forget something? (What a question!) Ever wonder why?L. Ron Hubbard had a very simple take on the problem, in a recorded lecture of December 1951:“The only reason a person forgets is because he doesn’t want to remember. The only reason he doesn’t want to remember is because it hurts him to remember. If it hurts him to remember, then he can’t handle his facsimiles. Simple.So you just want to get him up to a point where he can handle all of his facsimiles and that’s all you’re tryi … [Read more...]
