HCO INFORMATION LETTER OF 2 APRIL AD141
TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE
Completing research on the highest levels of clearing now being taught as the upper course at Saint Hill, Class VI, OT, I made a very fundamental discovery about man and life that I’d like you to know about.
You probably have speculated on this many times—are there two kinds of people: good people and bad people? Society is more or less organized on the basis that there are. And certainly one sees that some are successful and some aren’t, some are good to know and some aren’t.
Even in modern TV fiction one has the cowboys in the white hats and the cowboys in the black hats; indeed one probably couldn’t have stories at all to man’s way of thinking unless there were heroes and ogres. And even fiction is rigged as a moral lesson in good and bad people.
Philosophers long before Greece pondered moral conduct in terms of good and bad. And Diogenes was looking for an honest man, implying some weren’t. More recent speculation in the nineteenth century termed all men evil unless forced to be good.
Some schools of thought tried to avoid the point by saying early childhood formed character. Yet other schools maintained man would always be evil unless personally threatened, which gives us the presence of police in the society. But even police sometimes work on the idea that there are good and bad people.
From all this one could judge that man had a problem about whether people are good or bad.
Probably at this minute you could think of some examples of good people and bad people. You know those who rave and gnaw the rug at the very thought of Scientology helping anyone, so therefore there must be people of evil intention toward their fellows.
And there are.
The research results you would be interested in show clearly that there are two types of behaviour—that calculated to be constructive and that calculated to be disastrous.
These are the two dominant behaviour patterns. There are people then who are trying to build things up and others who are trying to tear things down.
And there are no other types. Actually there aren’t even shades of grey.
The disaster type can be repressed into inactivity (and illness) and the constructive type can also be repressed (and made ill).
Thus there are two basic actions, each with many other subsidiary actions.
There is also a cyclic or combined type who is alternately constructive and disastrous.
So there are cowboys in white hats and cowboys in black hats. And the cowboys in the grey hats are too sick to be in the game.
One scholarly chap (a very sick fellow) hopefully told me once that there were no true villains, no purely evil people. He was whistling past the graveyard. There may not be evil people, but there are people currently devoted to doing evil actions.
All such conduct is apparent and dominant. We see such people all the time. We just don’t want to see them.
The underlying reasons for this are, in the absence of processing, fixed and unchangeable in any one lifetime.
As man knows a man only in one lifetime, the basic cause or changes have not been observed. Thus to all practical purposes for man, some are good and some are evil. And if we didn’t have Scientology it would not only not be observed but couldn’t ever be changed.
That this condition exists—that half are good and half are bad according to their personalities—oddly enough does not alter basic Scientology concepts. It explains why certain persons appear to be evil and some appear to be good.
Examining the actual goals of an individual shows us why.
About half the goals of any one individual are constructive, the remainder are destructive.
It takes a being a very long time to live completely through the cycle of one goal, much less a series of goals.
Therefore any one individual at any given long period of his existence is only fixated on disaster and at a subsequent long period is fixated only on being constructive.
So the same being at different lifetimes is good and evil.
Given a sudden overwhelming experience a “good person” may be shifted violently in his own goals pattern and become evil. And a “bad person”, acted upon powerfully by life, will become good. But they also become sick. Their illness stems from being moved out of present time into past heavy energy patterns. It is no cure to so move them despite the assertions of nineteenth century mentalists and their shock “treatment”. This shows why shock sometimes works and why changes of character come about. And it also shows why such changes are accompanied by severe illness and early death. The person is thrown violently out of present time into a painful past.
The problem is not a problem of sanity and insanity. It is a problem of disastrous motives and constructive motives and the degree to which either is suppressed.
By suppressing the damaging motives of a being who is currently inclined to disaster, one can make that being “behave”. But by suppressing the constructive motives of a being currently inclined to constructiveness (as in the military), one can make that being “behave” also. But both will become physically ill, neurotic or insane in the absence of processing.
So the same being in one long period is constructive and in the next long period disastrous.
As Man measures time in small bits such as youth, old age or a lifetime, he could conceive of a being as either only constructive or only disastrous.
Fortunately for us, this also solves the ancient riddle that one cannot be granted power without also having good intentions. The only way final and powerful abilities can be returned to an individual is by ridding him of all these hidden compulsions, a task now accomplished at Level VI.
This gives the Scientologist a useful insight into character. A sick being is one who has been bent upon violence and was suppressed, or one who was bent upon constructiveness and was suppressed.
It also gives us a whole span of new processes for Level III called “Auditing by Lists”, available in HGCs or from informed field auditors. This is quite in addition to what it does at Level VI. And it also tells us that no one with obsessive intentions will ever make it to the highest and most powerful levels with disastrous inclinations.
But at the street level, with no processing involved, we have these two basic types—good and evil.
And these subdivide into the good who couldn’t be good and became sick, and the evil who couldn’t be evil and became sick.
But these facts are more than philosophic observations. They deliver to us understanding and more chance to be right about people. And they give us as well the wide open door to making people well at Level III.
One cannot push research as I have done in the past year into the stratosphere without learning more at sea level also. And this is what has happened here.
The basic travail of man is that he is divided into those who build and those who demolish, and in this conflict of intentions his fight, whichever side he is on, is always lost.
Or was lost until the Scientologist came along.

HCO INFORMATION LETTER OF 16 JANUARY 19631
OUR ROLE IN THE WORLD
The DC raid shows on inspection, a deterioration of government honesty and therefore government sanity.
The Department of Health, Education and Welfare did not tell the judge who issued the warrant that it was a church they wanted to raid. They named the HGC, Academy and Distribution Center-all of which are owned by the FCDC and are church departments conducted in quarters leased by the church. Yet the government knew it was a church, for in New York, an FDA spokesman lecturing the Humanists a month before the attack called it a church and nothing else. This makes the warrant false.
The FDA said they seized “pamphlets” and “leaflets” whereas they also seized books. Before the raid they called in the press and planted a story so as to cover their real actions. This story was out on the streets hours before the raid, giving us no chance to give our side of it.
They referred to the Founding Church as “a quasi-religious cult.” As Scientology 8-8008 makes plain, we study and process the human spirit to free it from the effects of the physical universe. We call the spirit a “thetan” after the Greek symbol of thought and spirit-theta. If studying and treating the spirit isn’t religion then billions and billions of savants and worshipers have been wrong for 2,500 years. If there’s anything “quasi” about the religious aspect of studying and treating the human spirit, then FDA religion must be defined as “the worship of the son of Wotan, Adolph Hitler.”
The meter was seized because it was “mislabeled.” Their pretense of a label is “This Instrument Diagnoses and Cures Physical Illness.” It doesn’t. We have never said it does and it can’t. Thus they want us to label something wrongly so that it will then contravene their ideas and so would be illegal. Evidently the meter should have their label on it so they can legally seize it.
Additionally, they seized privately owned meters for which they had no warrants.
This cloudy thinking is a symptom of sick men. A sick government. And a government that is afraid to perform its actions in public view. All this leads us to some speculations and planning vital to our future progress.
The way I see our hand is this:
1. Our forte is the human spirit and its relationship to the physical universe. Two”great” nations are liable to wreck the playing field with overwhelming nuclear force, their rage against each other born out of their inability to handle their own affairs.
3. Our first job is to salvage as many as we can from the possible debacle.
4. Our hope is that we can halt the progress of destruction by processing and applications of Scientology before Armageddon.
Number 3 is well formed up and in actual progress.
In suddenly engaging our forces the US government has entered us upon number 4.
Oddly, we couldn’t have been better poised to receive the government’s attack. Our only danger is not using the great advantage it gives us, especially in not attaining and holding the offense. We may lapse into defense. That would be fatal.
Singularly in our favor is the dishonest aspect of the government’s “case.”
It makes it an easy one to win, if we are militantly offensive about winning it. We should plot and execute a resounding defeat, not just prove our point.
After taking care of the government charges, we should launch an attack from that springboard upon all US government “thinking” about “the mind” and hammer our way rapidly into a dominant position and use that position to audit out the danger in the two GPM items that most menace Earth.
Russia can be reached. They’re going mad trying to make communism work. We have just had an oblique bid from a Russian diplomat and remember, they made more than a bid in 1938.
US or Russia, these are both run by cynical men. But they’re sick men.
So we have some hopes on number 4.
The weakness and dishonesty of the US attack, the recent bid by Russia, gives us reasons to hope. It shows they are afraid of us, afraid to confront what they are doing. They can’t outflow straight. Therefore they are willing to inflow.
There are three major factors in world peace. The US. Russia. And our technology. Factually there aren’t any other vital factors except our continuing to hold our own in neutral ground, from where we can handle the situation. We are not becoming wild to say we’re a third in this, as nowhere on Earth is there any solution or technology for a solution except in our hands.
Do you know of any?

HCO BULLETIN OF 23 JUNE 1960
THE SPECIAL ZONE PLAN
The Scientologist’s Role in Life
Ten years ago, on about this date, I was up against third dynamic confusion of such magnitude that within a few months I was to decide to forget organization problems and concentrate on research.
Because of this decision, for years we were poorer in numbers but richer by far in knowledge.
It evidently was not enough to be able to help the basic problems of an individual. There were eight dynamics. It was necessary to take in at least some of all eight dynamics before we could be effective.
And toward the end of June in 1950, I first sensed that truth. And the maxim- bring order to your own house before you attempt order next door. In June 1950, the Foundations were already beginning to shatter under the enthusiastic door pounding of the public. I had built the proverbial better mousetrap and all the world was beating a path to our door-and was breaking the door down!
Yes, we could do wonders with people. Greater wonders than had been done in recent millennia. But we were ignorant beyond the first two dynamics. The moment we sought to handle the third we were done.
That was ten years ago. Within months of that date all that was left of the first organizations was rubble and newspapers blowing by in the wind. I worked hard, I studied and researched, never friendless, often helped and worked ahead for ten years.
The first dynamic, self, fluctuated in results and has stabilized with unsurpassed processing technology. In proof, our people are individually in better shape than any other group.
On the second dynamic, family and sex, we have gotten into a winning position. We know the answers to marriage, children and sex. The material isn’t all published broadly enough yet even for Scientologists to know it, but it’s there and we’re living better lives.
The third dynamic, groups, is the spectacular breakthrough of today. It’s happened so gradiently we’ve hardly realized we have won. But observe: We have a magnificent organization. In America, England, South Africa and Australia we have just about the most wonderful organizations man has seen for their size, cost and defensibility. Here we have achieved spectacular stability. Largely self-determined, yet cooperating smoothly these third dynamic examples compare with June 1950 Foundations like the Royal Ballet compares with the aftermath of Hiroshima.
Just as we can represent in ourselves the grip we have on the first dynamic, so do we represent in our organizations that we have the third dynamic well in hand.
The technology of our third dynamic in organizations and the field is an exact one, as skilled as an auditor’s know-how. And having applied it to organizations we are now applying it to the field, which is the main subject of this bulletin. You in “the field,” you are about to win, too, with a complete new level of policy and action if you want it: You are about to be included “in.”
The fourth dynamic, mankind, is now an understood zone of operation and is declared herewith to be operational for a Scientologist. The prize of understanding man as a racial and political species has fallen to our hand. Don’t smile. I know it’s an incredible announcement. But it’s factual.
On the fifth dynamic, that of living things, I have been making headway since last year and know quite a bit now about them. Many of the secrets have dropped into our hands.
On the sixth dynamic, the physical universe, we have for some time stood well above what they know in physics.
On the seventh dynamic, the spirit, we covered this ground very thoroughly in 1953-54-55 and it’s still all true but too advanced for general consumption. The best record of this was in the 1953 Philadelphia Lecture Series of 64 hours.
On the eighth dynamic, the supreme being, we have at least found the key question and in a little while we should have it answered on a demonstrable basis. Far from presumptuous, it is about time somebody neither atheist nor zealot asked some questions, and arrived at some answers that have no self-interested curves in them.
So you can see where we are going and have at least a passing acquaintance with developments. Here we are with the largest fund of information of life and its patterns that has been assembled in a factual package on Earth.
Now the question is, what are we going to do with it?
Until we had the third and fourth dynamics demonstrably in hand technically, we could not answer the question. We’ve each had his own idea of what we should be doing with it and each of these ideas is right to the degree that it’s right for each of us. I have never discussed this point strongly because I did not want to shake anyone into an uncertainty. So let’s say that all these ideas are right and then add a third dynamic idea with which we can all agree.
Improvement is the common denominator of all our ideas. And of course each one has a zone of interest where he or she feels improvement is most needed or where he or she would be most comfortable in doing the work of improvement.
And that’s the gist of this third dynamic idea. It’s a rather deceptive idea at first glance since we are each of us doing something of that.
But let us be far more definite. And let us expose a fallacy that has long been riding with us, as an unknown passenger.
People think of professional practitioners as doctors who, aloof from all other concerns, practice on the sick. This is a very novel idea. Dreamed up, probably, by the first lazy witch doctor and used forever thereafter by most specialists in human livingness. And here I want to as-is and banish that idea from amongst us all.
If we are doctors (by which might be meant “repairers”) then we are doctors on the third and fourth dynamics and handle the first and second dynamics only to achieve better function on the third and fourth.
And true enough, most Scientologists agree, I think, with this concept. But it itself is as new and novel as the idea of being a professional practitioner to individual health once was.
I believe our third dynamic organization, taking in all Scientologists, should go this way:
The Central Organization and center Scientologists should service the remaining Scientologists, doing administration, instructing and auditing. Instruction to a professional level of all Scientologists should be entered upon as a must. Central Organization and center auditing should be special and referred cases and the
Scientologists themselves when they want it as part of service.
Being trained and cleared need not hold up the next zone of action, though it is taken for granted that these will occur for each.
The “field auditor” should be included wholly “in” to the general activity as a large zone divided into smaller specialized zones. The “field auditor” should, of course, run a group some evenings (he will find he has to) and audit not only members of his family but contacts in his zone on weekends or evenings. But, as you will see, he or she is largely wasting time by trying to be an individual doctor-type practitioner where he or she is only partly successful at it. Some, of course, will have to work full time in centers as we get into action but centers are mentioned above as a special activity along with Central Organizations.
The largest majority of Scientologists should, I feel, consider themselves as “doctors” on the third and fourth dynamics. And if we work well at this, we will have answered all our various needs and brought it off on the third and fourth as well.
Now, I wouldn’t be talking to you like this if I didn’t feel I had this studied to a conclusion.
Consider our position: We have arrived at a very special plateau of knowledge as has been reviewed above. Data on our know-how is being codified for use in these zones of action.
Consider the position of the world. The story is often repeated on the whole track. As MEST is made to help too much, a plateau of civilization is reached in which the individual is downgraded to a number. The end of this-the lights eventually go out through lack of personal initiative and ability.
We are in a fantastic position, at the right time and place, to halt this cycle of decay and start a new one on Earth. And I believe we should overtly do so.
We are masters of IQ and ability. We have know-how. Any of us could select out a zone of life in which we are interested and then, entering it, bring order and victory to it.
Of course, there’s a heavy challenge in doing this. Some of the victories would be hardly won. But we would win across the world if we kept our vision bright.
The third and fourth dynamics subdivide. Any third breaks down into many activities and professions, a neighborhood, a business concern, a military group, a city government, etc., etc., etc. The fourth dynamic breaks down just now mainly to races and nations.
Now, just suppose a Scientologist were to consider himself a professional only for the purposes of treating and repairing or even starting again these third and fourth zones?
See this: A housewife, already successfully employing Scientology in her own home, trained to professional level, takes over a woman’s club as secretary or some key position. She straightens up the club affairs by applying comm practice and making peace and then, incidental to the club’s main function, pushes Scientology into a zone of special interest in the club-children, straightening up marriages, whatever comes to hand and even taking fees for itmeanwhile, of course, going on being a successful and contributing wife.
Or this: A Scientologist, a lesser executive or even a clerk in a company, trains as a professional auditor and, seeing where the company is heading, begins to pick up its loose ends by strengthening its comm lines or its personnel abilities. Without “selling” anybody Scientology, just studies out the bogs and remedies them. If only as “an able person” he would rapidly expand a zone of control, to say nothing of his personal standing in the company. This has been and is being done steadily across the world. Now that we have presessioning, it’s easy to straighten up other people. Our unreleased technology on handling third dynamic business situations is staggeringly large. You’d be surprised how easy it is to audit seniors. They and their families have so many troubles. Or how easy it is to spot the emergency-maker and audit him.
And see this: A race is staggering along making difficulties for itself. Locate its leaders. Get a paid post as a secretary or officer of the staff of the leaders of that race. And by any means, audit them into ability and handle their affairs to bring cooperation not trouble. Every race that is in turmoil in a nation has quasi-social groups around its leaders.
And this: A nation or a state runs on the ability of its department heads, its governors or any other leaders. It is easy to get posts in such areas unless one has delusions of grandeur or fear of it. Don’t bother to get elected. Get a job on the secretarial staff or the bodyguard, use any talent one has to get a place close in, go to work on the environment and make it function better. Occasionally one might lose, but in the large majority, doing a good job and making the environment function will result in promotion, better contacts, a widening zone.
The cue in all this is don’t seek the cooperation of groups. Don’t ask for permission. Just enter them and start functioning to make the group win through effectiveness and sanity.
If we were revolutionaries, this HCO Bulletin would be a very dangerous document. We are not revolutionaries any more than we are doctors of sickness in individual patients. But we are not revolutionaries, we are humanitarians. We are not political. And we can be the most important force for good that the world has ever known. Who objects to a company functioning better to produce a better civilization? Who objects to a race becoming sane and a stable asset to its communities? Who objects to a neighborhood smoothing out?
Only the very criminal would object and they are relatively ineffectual when you can know and spot them. And there are no criminals except the mentally disabled.
So this is a challenge on the third and fourth. Almost all Scientologists are in a position to begin to help on such a program.
And I am studying now first the popularity with you of this plan and, if great, how best to help us all achieve it. The first thing required is an understandable designation for Scientologists undertaking their portion of this Special Zone Plan. I should think the word “Counselor” is acceptable with an appropriate additional designation such as “Family Counselor” or “Company Counselor” or “Child Counselor” or “Organization Counselor.” What we would do is issue an HPA or HCA as a certificate as always and would issue a special zone certificate to any person operating in that zone after he or she had completed an additional correspondence-type briefing course covering that general zone. In other words, anyone would have to have a professional certificate before he or she could be designated as a Special Zone Counselor. The costs of obtaining such a certificate would be kept slight, no more than bare administration. The advantages of having such a designation are plain. A clerk with a certificate on the wall from the Academy of Scientology designating that he or she has been graduated as a “Company Counselor” would startle even a complacent executive into conversation about what was wrong with the place, and as he was talking to a pro auditor any skepticism would quickly fade. A pro would know! As it all starts with being a good auditor and as the additional technology is exact in any of these fields, the program is feasible.
We are at this stage of this program: I have found that Scientologists operate with high success on the third and fourth but that it rarely occurs to them to try it and when they do they think I want them to audit full time and they are apologetic about their attempt. I have the technology pretty well to hand and can write zone manuals. I feel we now have clearing well in hand in Central Orgs and will soon have it broadly so for Scientologists in “the field” but I do not feel we need wait on that but take it and further training in stride. I feel that we are ripe for an overt attack on the third and fourth down-spiral. I feel our auditors should take advantage of their increased personal ability and should be rewarded accordingly by society and its zones. I see clearly that we have to win on the third and fourth if we are to attain our goals of a better world.
The Special Zone Plan is made possible by a slight shift of approach. Take the case of a police officer who got interested on a PE Course and read some books. He tried to “sell” his chief on Scientology as a subject and was given a heavy loss. One, our PE level trainee was insufficiently schooled to be effective. Two, as a pro his approach could have been anyone of several. He could have eased himself nearer a command source area in the department, or he could have taken over a pistol marksman on the force and made him a champion as we did
with the Olympics team once. The slight shift is that we would have made this police officer get pro training before letting him “sell Scientology” to the force and then would have advised him to sell it by action, not words. Handling the familial problems of the commissioner as his driver or making the rookies gasp at how fast he could train them would be selling by action only. And no other kind of selling would be needed. He’d be running an evening coaching class for his fellows or superiors on Scientology’ in a few months and making some of
them follow the same route. How long before he had altered the whole character, ability and effectiveness of the police force and through that how long before he would have civilized the whole approach to law enforcement in that area? For, once we have created an opening, we always avalanche to fantastically swift gains.
That’s the Special Zone Plan. Several hundred thousand are ready for the first steps. Those that aren’t trained as pro HPAs and HCAs could start in soon. There are special ways to get training at an Academy now. And even while awaiting this training and working toward clearing, such Scientologists could begin to determine their zone goals and work on them.
Our impact on the society is already weighty. With Special Zone Plans we could move that impact up thousands of times greater and have in our present lifetimes our goals at least in part accomplished and a decent world to come back to again.
What do you think of it? Write to me in care of Central Organization HCO in your area to give me your views on the Special Zone Plan.
When you write please advise me as follows: Whether you like or do not like the idea. If you like it tell me the zone you are in or would like to be in (what area do you want to help?). But whatever you say, please write, as your letter will be considered as a vote. We have arrived at a crossroads where our action now could well affect the future history of this planet.

Keeping Scientology Working Series 33
WHAT WE EXPECT OF A SCIENTOLOGIST1
We inherited, when we began, a great many hidden errors in the society, so deeply laid they seemed right. “Everybody knows that . . .” is a tombstone of progress for it contains uninspected lies that bring the wittiest of us to grief. “Everybody knows that man is evil” was only one of the many things we found wrong, exposed and dropped from our own knowledge. However, in the field of what is expected of a Scientologist, we have for ten years carried along an inherited error. It is this: “Everybody knows that a specialist in a science hangs out a shingle and, if a professional, becomes a private practitioner.”
Now listen. Psychoanalysis was developed in 1894 by Sigmund Freud. Everybody who studied it was expected to hang out a shingle and start practicing. It took half a century for psychoanalysis to become generally known by the people. Yet how could it miss? Its tenet was that if you were sexually uninhibited you would be happy.
The psychoanalyst took his cue from the medico of his day. If you could heal, you were a healer with a shingle.
Well, I’m afraid a lot of us have bought this too. If we were trained in Scientology as a professional, we should hang out our shingle as a practitioner. With all due respect to the Scientologists in professional practice (where they have every right to be) this is not a true idea. It is a borrowed idea. It’s as old as the witch doctor.
A Scientologist is the being three feet behind society’s head. And society runs on eight dynamics, not in a sick room. Some of us, of course, would become professional practitioners. But a professional Scientologist is one who expertly uses Scientology on any area or level of the society.
A housewife who does not have professional level skill in Scientology could not expect to run a wholly successful family or keep order in her neighborhood and keep her family well. A factory foreman could not possibly handle his crews with full effectiveness without professional Scientology skill. The personal assistant to a corporation executive could not do a fully effective job without being a professional Scientologist. A corporation president without a certificate will someday fail. And the head of a country would go to pieces if he didn’t know
Scientology from a professional angle.
How can these people handle life if they have no expert knowledge of how to handle life?
Now, we don’t expect everyone in the world to become a trained auditor. But we expect the people who are making the world go to have a knowledge of how to make it go.
A trained Scientologist is not a doctor. He is someone with special knowledge in the handling of life.
We have many, many personal success stories in Scientology. They begin with a book acquaintance and bloom when professional skill enters the background. These people, small people, big people, drove a wedge for themselves into companies, societies, with Scientology and then took over control of the area. They succeeded where they never would have dreamed they could. And every time one of us drives in such a wedge, we all win because the world is brought nearer to a sane and decent world.
The factories, the marts of trade, the homes, the neighborhoods, these are the places we want trained Scientologists. In that way alone, we’re on the busy, still healthy communication lines of the world.
Some of us need to run centers and schools just to give the rest of us service when required. Training at a pro level must continue and must be kept good. And service and communication must be given. Hence, we have Central Organizations on every continent and HeDs. But if we avoid the throbbing comm lines of the world and act like doctors, we will not win soon enough as a group.
Any trained Scientologist can win to success in society. Heightened IQ, a knowledge of life, a forthright attitude-with these things it is easy for him or her to improve a social or business position, to get higher pay, to exert wider personal influence. This we know we can do, we have done it so often, so let’s improve the ability.
Process people weekends, run a co-audit some evenings of the week at home, but get on the active lines of the world and make your presence felt. It takes full training to do it. It’s been done from our books alone but not always well. It takes tough Academy training to make a Scientologist, so don’t go at it half armed.
And stop feeling apologetic because you are not a “full-time auditor.” We are the auditors to the world, not to a handful of the sick.
We are not doctors. We are the world’s trouble-shooters. When we make a company win, the whole world wins. When we make a neighborhood win, we all win. A full-time Scientologist makes life better wherever he is. And that is enough pro activity for anyone.
What do we expect of you? To become the best Scientologist that can be and to get on the comm lines of the world and bring a big win where it counts. We don’t expect you to hang up a shingle as a doctor and have a private practice. We’ll respect you if you do. But we’ll respect you just as much and even more if you get trained as a pro and go out and up in the world of action and of life. Hit for the key spots by whatever means-the head of the women’s club, the personnel director of a company, the leader of a good orchestra, the president’s secretary, the advisor of the trade union-any key spot. Make a good sound living at it, drive a good car, but get your job done, handle and better the people you meet and bring about a better Earth.
And stop feeling hangdog because you “aren’t auditing full time.” Nobody expects you to.
We’ll keep centers going to service your needs, some of us; we’ll provide ammunition and books. And the rest of us had better invade every activity there is on a high level of success and make our influence felt on the comm lines of the world.
Scientology is the only game on Earth where everybody wins.
So let’s help the world win.
