Peace on Earth, Protecting Goodwill for All

The day after Thanksgiving 2018, I suffered a heart attack and was rushed through triple bypass surgery. My wife is helping me with wonderful care. Our home is full of flowers; I thank the many family and friends who sent their love, admiration and best wishes for my well-being.

I thought a lot during the 12 days I was in the Coronary Care Unit. About the value of saving a life and the role that Scientology can play in supporting such efforts. I contemplated the vital importance of a society’s institutions of goodwill—hospitals, churches, schools, government groups and all the other sources of help that many of us take for granted every day.

How fortunate we are in this country to have so many fine organizations forming the fabric of our society. I so admire the ceaseless efforts over many years that women and men of goodwill have put into building these institutions.

At one time or another every nation has seen these mighty citadels of help collapse into dust, succumbing to bombs or the madness of a dictator. All the good is undone. The devastation of countless wars and violent upheavals destroy in a moment the long, hard work of countless good people’s efforts to help their fellow man.

A large part of our mission is to preserve, protect and defend men and women of goodwill everywhere—to guarantee they have the freedom to build and sustain great institutions and noble missions.

Scientology’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard, in “The Aims of Scientology” set forth our mission:

“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.”

Those who belittle Scientology and Scientologists are ignorant of our aims. These are the folks who rarely contribute to the good of society, instead preferring to criticize the handiwork of generations of goodwill and hard-won efforts.

Can the technology of Dianetics and Scientology ultimately prevail to create “a world without war” and fulfill all the noble and sky-high aims laid down by our founder?

A large part of our mission is to preserve, protect and defend men and women of goodwill everywhere—to guarantee they have the freedom to build and sustain great institutions and noble missions.

Here in the USA, our country is a beacon of freedom and hope to the world. We wear this mantle as citizens. As Scientologists we have undertaken a unique responsibility to see that the beacon becomes a flood of light, reaching into every dark corner of this planet.

Dear reader, set aside any cynicism you may have and come work alongside us—we support any group, institution or individual that works toward a better world.

Our help is yours.

Thank you for all you do (and will do) to bring that better world about.

And in this holiday season, let’s rededicate ourselves to the attainment of love, joy and peace for all.
