"I hear a lot of whining and moaning here and there about how bad it is over  here. But I notice it is always from people who are totally incompetent and  who depend for their communication line on their imagination and with as  little recourse to fact as possible."                                         -L. Ron Hubbard, 1955


Now the only real trouble with Dianetic and Scientology organizations in the past is because of this matter of research. We have not been very alert to people working their ill will from whatever reasons or causes in our own ranks. We just haven’t been interested. The important thing was to get the material researched and to get people trained. When we had that job done and when it was done very, very well, the spread of Dianetics and Scientology in the society would be inevitable. We need five thousand trained auditors. That is our first step toward this dissemination. For, believe me, what we are doing with cases today wasn’t done last year and has never before been done in the history of the human race. We need a clear public presence and so we are taking a bulldozer to the communication perverters. We are putting ourselves in solid on every front where we can be effective. It is interesting that the American Psychological Association lost, hands down, a bill which was directly aimed at the HASI in Arizona. It lost so badly that it is doubtful that it will ever recover. We are not even vaguely propitiative toward medicine or psychiatry and we are overtly intent upon assimilating every function they are now performing. We have great belief in the value of a well-trained doctor and the psychiatrist is certainly welcome to the psychotic. We do not believe that the organizations of these people should have any bearing or influence in the world at large, for they have used their influence in the past to impede research. We get terribly amused when some auditor writes in and says he has managed to address the local medical association and when we hear that somebody is now calling himself a psychologist. These shortsighted people believe that the labor union called the AMA or the APA is worth propitiating and will be there long enough to influence anything. The general attitude among the Powers That Be in these organizations has definitely changed toward Dianetics and Scientology.They now regard these as a very serious and deadly menace. These people are getting scared. We know this because we had a recent reaction at a very high echelon. There is no real danger in these organizations. There is more danger in our own stupidity and in an apathy which would permit our fields to be plowed by any untrained fool who wants to tell us all how bad it is over there.

We’ve been told how bad it is over there for 76 trillion years. It’s about time somebody said how good it can be somewhere. And that’s what we are doing.

I am telling you this because I want you to know how I feel about this. And maybe knowing how I feel about it and knowing how inevitable I feel about the success of Dianetics and Scientology in this society of Man, you will be better able to understand what we have been doing, what we are doing and what we are going to do in Dianetics and Scientology.
