Mr. Miscavige’s address continued…

The answer to this planet’s problems will not be found in the “material.” Of this there can be no question. For if those solutions can’t prevent war nation to nation, how then can it be expected to answer questions like “love,” “happiness” or “peace of mind?” So, we can’t expect the answer to be found in chemicals. Not unless one buys into a synthesized utopia, or a “Brave New World,” with a perfect pleasure drug.

Yet that is precisely what we see in the world today, with multi-million dollar conglomerates providing a cornucopia of new pills as a panacea to all ills — making the pharmaceutical industry the most profitable business on the planet — more than banking, high finance, oil or computers. Common sense tells us it’s the wrong answer.

After all, it isn’t just mere coincidence that the arrival of those new drugs always coincide with the expiration of the last one’s patent. That’s a fact.

And when the success of the latest “feel good” pill is judged by profit, well don’t be surprised when happiness isn’t the result. After all, what then would happen with all those blue chip stocks?
As any businessman knows — good marketing strategy requires the constant outflow of new product. And besides, the statistics say it all — those pills are not working.

So, do we think new answers are needed?

Yes, we do.

Do people, at times, suspect offers of “help”?

Unfortunately, they do. And it’s not surprising. Because too many times that help has failed.

What people need are real solutions, real tools to deal with and effectively overcome human problems. Every one of us has experienced it.

Think back yourself and you’ll remember when you tried to help a grieving loved one, a struggling child, a friend overcome by addiction. And where you have failed, it’s only because you lacked the tools to effectively accomplish what you desired. That is what Scientology offers. Help.

The Aims of Scientology are a world without insanity, without criminals, without war, where the able can prosper and where Man is free to rise to greater heights. Also inherent in Scientology itself, is that one take responsibility, not only for himself, but the world at large. And absolutely no part of those efforts have anything to do with mere “belief” or “blind faith” in a doctrine. Rather, we use what we know to help others, and we couldn't care less about their race, creed, color or religion.
