The Aims of Scientology
By L. Ron Hubbard
A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.1
After endless millennia of ignorance about himself, his mind and the universe, a breakthrough has been made for man.
Other efforts man has made have been surpassed.
The combined truths of fifty thousand years of thinking men, distilled and ampified by new discoveries about man, have made for this success.
We welcome you to Scientology. We only expect of you your help in achieving our aims and helping others. We expect you to be helped.2
We respect man and believe he is worthy of help. We respect you and believe you, too, can help.
Scientology does not owe its help. We have done nothing to cause us to propitiate. Had we done so, we would not now be bright enough to do what we are doing.
Man suspects all offers of help. He has often been betrayed, his confidence shattered. Too frequently he has given his trust and been betrayed. We may err, for we build a world with broken straws. But we will never betray your faith in us so long as you are one of us.3
The sun never sets on Scientology.
And may a new day dawn for you, for those you love and for man.4
— L. Ron Hubbard

1 Insanity, in Scientology, always comes from "evil intentions," particularly evil intentions toward Scientology. No insanity means no opposition to Scientology. Scientology is a totalitarian organization that seeks world domination by inter alia, obliterating all opposition.
3Scientologists constantly monitor each others' allegiance to Scientology, pursuant to the Suppressive Person doctrine. Breaking faith with Scientology makes the offender insane and therefore fair game. This is Scientology's war against insanity.
4 Hubbard's new dawn is an inference to The Golden Dawn, an Rosicrucian order about which Hubbard was clearly familiar.
