THE TRUE STORY OF SCIENTOLOGY BY L. RON HUBBARD


For instance, we speak loosely of “good press.” Is there any such thing today? Look over a newspaper. Is there anything good on the front page? Rather there is murder and sudden death, disagreement and catastrophe. And even that, bad as it is, is sensationalized to make it seem worse.

This is the coldblooded manufacture of “a dangerous environment.” People do not need this news; and if they did, they need the facts, not the upset. But if you hit a person hard enough he can be made to give up money. That’s the basic formula of extortion. That’s the way papers are sold. The impact makes them stick.

A paper has to have chaos and confusion. A “news story” has to have “conflict,” they say. So there is no good press. There is only bad press about everything. To yearn for “good press” is foolhardy in a society where the Merchants of Chaos reign.
