Mr. David Miscavige -This is Scientology

 

This is Scientology:  On August 7, 2004, Mr. David Miscavige presented a global overview of the Scientology religion to over 2,000 leaders in the fields of the arts, entertainment, commerce and government:

 

David Miscavige: " While we celebrate the 35th anniversary of this one church — this is also our annual "open house" reflective of the Scientology religion around the globe. As you will have seen when you arrived — throughout the Manor and its grounds, are exhibits and displays explaining both Scientology itself, and the many programs we are engaged in. We want you to know who we are and what we stand for.

   "Of course, the primary question is “What is Scientology?” The answer has never been more relevant than today — especially with what faces our modern-day society.

   "Let me be blunt. Scientology does have answers. Real answers. Answers that work. Bold statements? Yes. But, what millions of people — from over 150 nations — will tell you themselves.

   "Today we are at a watershed in history. At stake is whether the ideals we cherish will survive or some new abhorrent set of values win the day. And if that decline has been evident through the past half century, it continues unabated into this new one.

   "The events of September 11th served as a wake-up call for all of us. When one must worry, in today’s modern world, about the safety of its citizens, when one’s solutions are limited to the use of military might, it is obvious that the problems we face run much deeper.

   "It’s a situation none of us can ignore. They are conditions we all must face. They are problems we all must be responsible for helping to resolve.

   "Yet look around the world today — what will you hear? “What can I do about it?” “I’m just me.” And therein lies the real problem. For the truth of the matter is that just “me” and “we” are the most powerful force on this Earth.

   "And no, I am not merely speaking of the daily headlines of international warfare and conflict. The fact is, that’s only but the latest chapter in the drama that has continued to unfold for the past several millennia. War — man against man — nation against nation. And if today it is different, that’s only because the weapons are larger. It’s a long way from sticks and stones, to laser-guided missiles.

   "But here’s the real point. While we are hit with the daily headlines, the Code Orange terror alerts, and all else, it obscures the deeper, more serious problem that underlies it all. Man himself.
