Now, I’m not trying to place responsibility on your shoulders. Because, whether I say so or not, that responsibility is already yours — merely from the fact you are one of the few on Earth who have tasted this priceless gift called Scientology. After all, if some scientist were to discover the cure for cancer, he would have a responsibility to do anything and everything in his power to bring that cure to the world. Well, consider our responsibility. We’re not just talking about a cure for the body, we’re talking about an illness so grave, Man now believes that he is that body. And what we offer is immortality and freedom, for all eternity.

Factually, the tough job has been done. The one task that has never been accomplished in all history of past religion. The way has been found, it has been mapped. And while we could place all of our materials on every shelf in the world — all in addition to making them indestructible to cataclysm — we would accomplish nothing if those materials aren’t used.

Although we have won the most important war, there will no doubt be battles ahead. So what? What else can we expect in a world subject to the very aberrations that Scientology has revealed? As LRH said in The Aims of Scientology: “In a turbulent world the job is not easy. But then, if it were, we wouldn’t have to be doing it.”

In the final analysis, others don’t have the answers. We do. But this isn’t a game of one-upmanship. Because there are a great many people out there who are searching, and who are trying. Where they fail, it’s because they lack the answers we have. So we can’t move into this new millennium nattering about the many failings of the world at large. No, we must wake up in the morning, each one of us, look in the mirror and say, “That’s my responsibility to handle.” Because we are the only ones who can.

So, where do we stand on the threshold of the 21st century? Well, we stand exactly where we need to stand. Fully poised and ready to carry the torch to ultimate victory.
