And all of us sense this and so, to some degree, all of us become outlaws…

“Now these broad things, these broad sweeping arbitraries and mandates,

do not carry with them an eventual goal of peace.

They don’t carry with them greater decency

because they have the liability of injuring the one ‘for the benefit of the many’.

AND ALL OF US SENSE THIS AND SO,  TO SOME DEGREE, ALL OF US BECOME OUTLAWS

Why is it that the public at large is always so willing to deify Robin Hood? Why does he always get a big hand whenever he walks on world stage? That’s because he personifies the rebel in all of us.

But just as a bird dog or a rabbit dog that won’t kill chickens is no good—you know, that’s the test of a good bird dog or rabbit dog: if he’ll still kill chickens, he’s some good—so a citizen who will not rebel against the unjust is no good. He’s just no good anymore. He’s not good to, anybody and that doesn’t necessarily deify the rebel.

All of us have within us the germs of rebellion. Against what?

Against the arbitrary, the unreal. Against forces which seek by oppression to accomplish some goal they know not what of.

And now, in setting up organizations of Scientology, we’re going to go on this same pattern?

Oh, no No.

It’s a very funny thing. My main job is research and writing but I also have to do a great deal of administration, and part of that administration has to do with justice.

And boy, if you don’t think it’s tough to administer justice. It’s not administrable. Processing is!

So, when somebody goes wrong, only thing we can do is condemn him to getting well. And when we do that, we mustn’t forget to consult his power of choice.

Is he trying to go up the spout or down the drain or is he trying to do better? “

“The individual is the living thing, not the group. And if you never address an individual and always address the group, of course you fail totally! You’ve had it.”
