“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.”1
SPDL Note: What the above ubiquitous ballyhoo actually means is that to achieve their “civilization without insanity and without criminality” Scientologists must delete, obliterate or dispose of quietly and without sorrow every person who opposes and stands up to their attacks and abuses.
Scientology equates “criminal” and”insane” with their “antisocial personality,” the Suppressive Person. In reality, the Scientologists’ “civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war” is the spin they give to their insane and criminal war on those who would expose their human rights abuses in their totalitarian plan for world domination.

WHY SOME FIGHT SCIENTOLOGY
Unfortunately, the person who does not want you to study Scientology is your enemy as well as ours.
When he harangues against us to you as a “cult, ” as a “hoax,” as a very bad thing done by very bad people, he or she is only saying, “Please, please, please don’t try to find me out.”
Thousands of such protesting people carefully investigated by us have been and to have unsavory pasts and sordid motives they did not dare (they felt) permit to come to light. The wife or mother who rails against a family member who takes up Scientology is, we regret to have to say, guided by very impure motives, generated in the morass of dread secrets long withheld. The father, husband or friend who frowns upon one knowing more about the mind is hiding something that he feels would damage him.
“You had better leave Scientology alone!” is an instinctive defense, prompted in all cases investigated by a guilty conscience.
Once they hear a few truths from Scientology such people become afraid. They KNOW we know. And if we know this much and if you are further informed, they feel you will find them out. The wife, protesting, is hiding such things as infidelity or an unsavory circumstance, one or many. The husband, protesting, is hiding a past with many blots upon it.
“You must not know more of Scientology” is best answered by no praise of Scientology but by “What have you done? ” It is best answered by demanding that the protesting person go to the nearest center for a “case assessment.” For marriages and families founder on the rocks of hidden transgressions. And if one’s friend or family become afraid in the face of truth, the friendship or the family will eventually go to pieces on the fangs of hidden events.
Brought to light, such things are never as dreadful as they were in the unconfided dark. Exposed to view, one no longer builds on quicksand.
For how can one have a family, a marriage or a friendship where treachery has slept?
So Scientology is dangerous.
But Scientology is also generous, tolerant and kind. And before the breadth of its understanding and the kindness of its people, a new world can be born for anyone, a world without war, criminality or the insane.
But also, much more personally can be born a real friendship where there was private fear before, a real family founded on mutual trust, a real marriage where its partners are united against the world, not divided from one another by hidden acts.
Beware the person or group who fights Scientology, for that person fights truth—not the truth of natural laws, but the truth about himself.
It’s well worth knowing, we assure you.
