I pity those who are busy selling A World In Trouble. There are doomsday peddlers in many corners of society. We find the media busy pushing bad news and we find organizations such as the Church of Scientology (CoS) busy profiting from just that.
When I was in the CoS I was constantly reminded of how bad off our society was. There was war, famine, natural catastrophes, psychiatry trying to enslave the general population, drugs on the street, the “international bankers”, the human insanities, the, the, the. The works. It was bad – bad – bad. And that’s why the pressure was on to donate more money, and time. All your resources. The World needed salvaging, and plenty of it.
“But wait a minute!”, I sometime allowed myself to think. Is it really that bad?
It wasn’t until today that I came across a clear overview of what shape the world is actually in. Thanks Brendan for sending the link.
You just got to see this video. It’s a real eye opener:
It is ironic that the CoS actually needs one of their avowed enemies, the media, to cook up enough pressure of badness to make people “see” how much they need to donate – immediately. I find this mildly amusing.
Perhaps the Kool Aid drinkers should start supporting the forward progress of Man rather than trying to sell a fantastically progressing world on the idea that it is all very gloomy.
