We're not playing some minor game in Scientology. It isn't cute or something to do for lack of something better.
The whole agonized future of this planet, every Man, Woman and Child on it, and your own destiny for the next endless trillions of years depend on what you do here and now with and in Scientology.
This is a deadly serious activity. And if we miss getting out of the trap now, we may never again have another chance.
Remember, this is our first chance to do so in all the endless trillions of years of the past. Don't muff it now...
Scientologists live in a mythical world of titanic, universe-wide, trillion year struggles between Ultimate Good and Ultimate Evil.
L. Ron HubbardKeeping Scientology Working Series 1
The above quote from L. Ron Hubbard has been read by every single Scientologist many times. They believe it with all their hearts.
Today, they are fighting for their very survival and the survival of "every Man, Woman and Child". I simply cannot exaggerate how very serious and crucial everything is to a Scientologist.
Every time David Miscavige announces his fictional "Good News", it is a sign that Ultimate Good is winning. But every protest, every bad news article, every exposé on TV is a sign that Ultimate Evil is winning.
It is all so very, very, very important. To them.
And sometimes, with all this importance being artificially imprinted on Scientology by Scientologists, it is difficult to keep things in perspective.
Let's look at reality, shall we?
Scientology doesn't exist. That is the reality in the rest of the world. Outside of Scientology and its critics, Scientology really doesn't show up on the radar of most people. A few might know that Scientology has something to do with Tom Cruise, and that's about it. To most of the world, Scientology simply does not exist.
Scientology's "solutions" have been tried in a very few places, but were found to be expensive and to not work very well. So these "solutions" have been, or are being, dropped wherever they were tried. You look for what effect Scientology is having on the world and the answer is: None. For all their posturing and bragging, their results are nowhere to be found. It's like they don't exist.
Psychiatrists are not much aware of Scientology. They know that, for some reason, Scientology attacks them, but, since the effects of those attacks are negligible, it doesn't matter to psychiatrists what they do.
Politicians are finding out that, as celebrities already know, association with the fraudulent, deceitful Church of Scientology is a huge negative to their careers. The church has no influence there.
And, actually, Scientology is not very important to Scientology's critics either. Yes, critics care about the victims. Yes, they want the abuse, lies, fraud and crimes to be stopped. Yes, they want the destroyed families to be brought back together. But criticizing and protesting Scientology is what they do with their spare time. It isn't their life, it isn't their survival, it isn't some "epic battle".
Outside of Scientology's bubble, Scientology just isn't important.
In this struggle, Scientology is fighting a desperate fight for "the whole agonized future of this planet, every Man, Woman and Child on it," while its critics are happily living their lives and, occasionally, when they have some spare time, criticizing and protesting Scientology.
