|Lecture: What's Wrong With This Universe|
|The Crime Angle|
Hubbard gives his "insight" into how to end crime.
Supposing you, as a group, suddenly decided to wipe out crime in the United States. Supposing you just decided to do that. Now you devoted your attention to crime and so forth, well, you know the MEST universe’s rules of opposites. You’d know you’d have to put your attention on honesty in order to wipe out crime. So you’d take all the criminals and you would make sure that they made sure that they set an example of honesty so everybody would be honest.
That sounds strange but that’s what you would do. It would be a very successful program. Uh… you would just put the police, you would put the police in cages so to speak. And you would… you would set the criminals up so that uh… the criminals up so that the criminals were very sure that uh, they weren’t fighting crime, they were just making sure that everybody was being honest.
You could form an organization with… not even with Scientology, but just something like Alcoholics Anonymous uh… which would uh… make every criminal responsible for one more criminal or something of that sort, just treat it as a disease and it would work out right there without any processing. You could end crime. You could end it utterly.
— L. Ron Hubbard
