There is, however, another way to place this new Ideal Central Org in context — and even if only symbolic, it bears mention. Because as every Londoner knows, just across the road there stands St. Paul’s Cathedral where some four hundred years ago John Donne declared no man is an island unto himself — that every death diminishes us if we are involved in mankind — so never ‘send to find for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.’ Which, as every Scientologist knows, is quoted in the famed LRH chapter on Responsibility as found in Advanced Procedure and Axioms.
The point, even if already obvious, all this organization represents as a force for preserving and bettering lives — our gift of literacy to disadvantaged children, restoring self-respect to those who’ve gone astray, easing suffering, eradicating racial prejudice, and
repairing the bonds that bind men together — all that and more is about responsibility
It’s about never sending to find for whom the bell tolls, because we know it tolls for us — and we know it because we are involved in mankind.
In the days, weeks and months to follow, you will have an opportunity to demonstrate what it means to take full responsibility for
human being — as a Scientologist. You may do so in any division within the organization, as a member of any LRH Social Betterment group, or as a Volunteer Minister anywhere and everywhere else.
And while your numbers may seem small in comparison to the size of this city, when you total the cumulative effort of Scientologists assuming responsibility, the net effect is astonishing.
After all, within this new church lies the technical wherewithal to dramatically raise grade point averages across entire educational systems — and all in the space of a single semester.
Also on the shelves is a body of LRH technology to completely reverse 80 and 90 percent recidivism rates in prison systems and cut cell-block violence to nothing.
You further now possess the power to routinely rehabilitate drug addicts no other rehab facility will touch, and drop usage rates by 10, 15 and 20 percentage points within whole generations.
Then again, with LRH Administrative Technology you can change whole economic climates, spurring growth rates ten times the norm and so help people find their feet and thereby achieve their dreams.
