writes HCOPL 'Keeping Scientology
Working KSW Series 1'. An excerpt: "I don't see that popular measures, self-abnegation and democracy have done anything for man but push him further into the mud. Currently, popularity endorses degraded novels, self-abnegation has filled the Southeast Asian jungles with stone idols and corpses, and democracy has given us inflation and income tax." Also, "The entire agonizing future of this planet - and every man, woman and child on it - and their destinies for the next billions of years depend on what you do here and now in Scientology
. This is a deadly serious activity. And if we fail to get out of the trap now, then perhaps we will never have another chance."
