It is impossible to ignore the signs of decay so prevalent in society today—drug abuse, criminality, failing education and moral decline. As part of its mandate to provide news in the public interest, Freedom has regularly reported on the activities of individual organizations actively working to resolve such problems.

This includes the many concerned Scientologists who are providing solutions through the secular application of L. Ron Hubbard’s technology. The word technology is used to describe “the methods of application of the principles of something, as opposed to mere knowledge of the thing itself.” The principles Mr. Hubbard developed provide solutions to many of society’s most difficult problems.

It is the workability of this secular technology in its broad application that has united both Scientologists and non-Scientologists alike since the 1960s to effectively arrest the decline of our society and rid the world of its devastating social ills.

This web site features the work of individuals and programs which are effectively resolving the scourges of drugs, illiteracy and crime.
