See Your Human Rights

Youth for Human Rights International just produced 30 public service announcements (PSAs), one for each of the rights laid out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You can see some of them on the organizations home page (click the title of this blog entry). I have a DVD with all 30 PSAs on it and they are awesome. The quality is state-of-the-art and each ad gets the message across of what the featured human right is all about.

What you become

Here is something from the Personal Achievement Series of Lectures by L. Ron Hubbard:
Now it is very, very true that man has a very definite alignment with this law: That which you resist you become. There's another little clause that belongs on the bottom of it: if you lose.
Think about that one for a while and I'm sure you can see a lot of examples of the loser starting to look like or copy the mannerisms of the winner.

The Way to Happiness Available on Jordanian Portal

The Way to Happiness is a common sense book containing guideline for the application of sound principles of conduct such as honesty, integrity, tolerance and competence.

I just found a Jordanian web portal that is offering a free download of the book in over 90 languages! Some of the languages I've never even heard of (like "Ewe" and "Kyrgyz"). I had no idea it had been translated so broadly.

In his book Science of Survival, L. Ron Hubbard said:
The highest form of security is confidence in one's self, in the future, in the group and in mankind

Because it can handle the reasons for not having confidence in one's self and others, Scientology can enable you to reach this high level of security.

Youth for Human Rights Vidcast

Youth for Human Rights now has a vidcast! The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ratified by the United Nations in 1948, form the foundation of everyone's most basic human rights. Youth for Human Rights has produced a visual presentation of each of the 30 human rights laid out by this document. The purpose of Youth for Human Rights International is to educate young people in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights so they become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace.

If you are using iTunes, you can subscribe by selecting “Advanced/Subscribe to Podcast…” and entering the following URL: (note: I've had to chop it in half because it is so long, so you'll have to copy and paste the two parts separately and join them together. Make sure there is no space between the two parts once you paste them)

The full url is in this link: Youth for Human Rights Vidcast

If you are not able to view a vidcast, you may still view the public service announcements from the Youth for Human Rights website.

What is true for you

Here's another quote from L. Ron Hubbard:
What is true for you is what you have observed yourself. And when you lose that you have lost everything.
This is from the article called "Personal Integrity" and when you think about it, it makes sense that sticking with what you have observed and know to be true is the ultimate in integrity.

Impulse toward freedom

In his book Dianetics 55!, L. Ron Hubbard says:
Each and every impulse of freedom is an impulse toward sanity, toward health, toward happiness. every impulse toward slavery is an impulse in the direction of misery, disease and death.

I think if you look at the turmoil of the Middle East you will see the results of the impulse toward slavery - the slavery of ignorance and blind obedience. Countries such as Jordan, where freedom is promoted, are examples of how the impulse toward freedom can still exist even in such a region.

What a wise man knows

Here is a cool quote from L. Ron Hubbard:

One can always know something about anything. It is a wise man who, confronted with conflicting data, realizes that he knows at least one thing -- that he doesn't know!

A useful quote. Use it next time you are reading a news story.

The Mind of a Free Man

Another great quote from L. Ron Hubbard is this one:
That mind which understands itself is the mind of a free man.

And the book that gives you the understanding you need is Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.

In his book "Understanding: The Universal Solvent", L. Ron Hubbard says, "The only richness there is, is understanding." How true that is. If there was more understanding between peoples in the Middle East, the world would be a much better place.

Stopping Child Slavery

Most people don't know that trafficking in child slaves is still alive and kicking in our modern world. People of goodwill everywhere need to know that it still exists so they can take steps to stop it. The Church of Scientology is a leading light in the fight against such abuse: European Human Rights Award Event Focuses On Putting An End To Modern Day Slavery

Tom Cruise was right: Psychiatry is a pseudo Science

Last year Tom Cruise made some rather damning statements about psychiatry, saying that it was a pseudo-science. Well, it seems that psychiatrists are determined to prove him right. Here is a video of psychiatrists openly admitting (and even laughing about it) that they have no tests to show that any of their "diseases" and "syndromes" exist and that none of them have ever cured anyone of anything: Psychiatry, No Science and No Cures

This is Scientology

I just came across this great presentation of what Scientology is and what it does in the world to make the world a better place: This is Scientology.

This is actually a transcript extracted from a DVD that is available here: This is Scientology DVD.

I highly recommend both the text presentation and the DVD.
