“The total empire of a Scientologist as far as-and of Scietology and its organizations, from my viewpoint, the total empire is an empire of wisdom. No political empire of any kind.
There is no effort on the part of Scientology to own or have allegiance of billions and billions and billions of people, or to have thousands and thousands of tons of masonry piled up, with Scientology written across the top of it, or to have certain government of Earth giving their allegiance to Scientology or something of the sort.
This is very dull indeed.
The empire of Scientology is 100% the empire of wisdom: there is no other empire envisioned.
From a lecture of L. Ron Hubbard ‘Consideration, Mechanics and theory behind instruction’

And now we are thinking in terms of new buildings and designing new building all over the world.
