In an essay published in 1965, Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote: A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where Man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.” He further stated, “We seek no revolution. We seek only evolution to higher states of being for the individual and for society.” At that time, the world population was some 3.3 billion people—today it is 7.4 billion.
The video begins with statistics of the many thousands of people who in just the past day who started taking illicit drugs, were sold into slavery, were born into poverty or were the victims of murder. But those those who share these aims are not alone. The Church of Scientology has a network of 1.5 million volunteers through the humanitarian initiatives and social betterment programs it supports.
The global devastation and human misery wrought by drug abuse, illiteracy and moral decay—to say nothing of natural and man-made disasters—is unmistakable. They threaten to rip the social fabric to shreds and in many parts of the world these societal ills have already caused irreparable damage.
What is conspicuously lacking in combating these virtually apocalyptic scenarios are effective solutions. To that end, in the course of his decades of research into the mind and spirit, L. Ron Hubbard developed methods by which to address the crises that threaten our world.
Further, and to realize Scientology’s greater humanitarian objective, the Church has made readily available, easily assimilated and rapidly distributable multimedia tools to raise awareness, educate and activate millions.
The result: the Church of Scientology’s revolutionary social betterment and humanitarian programs. They are utterly unique, indisputably cutting edge and most importantly—effective.
