If Scientology conquered the world…
During my last year as a member of the Church of Scientology, I held many seminars on free will and personal integrity. I also conducted an informal mini-survey where I asked Scientologists what the world would be if Scientology really won out.
Several answers were surprising, some unnerving.
As a Scientologist, it’s easy to envision the really nice parts of such a scenario: “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…“. (L. Ron Hubbard, The aims of Scientology). A clear world could be a rational world where people are free to be themselves.
There are also dark sides to the scenario of a Scientology conquered world. They are illustrated by a sample of the answers I got to my mini-survey:
“Everyone would be on a standard course schedule”
“Everything would be run by statistics”
“There would be no political system as we know it”
“There would be no other religions”
“International management would run the show”
I leave it to you to imagine how such a world would be. You may leave your thoughts as a comment here or follow the discussion at The Scientology Forum (scnforum.org)
