Reversing Moral Decay
THE WAY TO HAPPINESS
Common sense is often undervalued in modern society, but it is from this most basic understanding of the world that L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology’s Founder, authored The Way to Happiness, as an educational work that provides anyone with an easy–to–follow “road map” for living.
More than 120 million copies of The Way to Happiness booklet, in 114 languages, have been distributed to people of all races, cultures and creeds throughout the world. In the hands of educators, the 21 simple precepts outlined by Mr. Hubbard have become a universal guide to a code of ethics and moral values that help young people understand the importance of living with respect for one’s self and for others.
Coupled with a full–length book-on-film, a series of 21 public service announcements and lessons, The Way to Happiness has become a much sought–after guide to better living—one which teaches that tolerance and understanding lead to a happier, safer world.
Its acceptance by educators as a way to teach morality outside of a religious environment has offered to millions of students a path to understanding why being trustworthy, temperate, industrious, loyal to truth—and a role model for others—helps make the world a better place in which to live.
The educational materials provided by the Church–sponsored The Way to Happiness Foundation are distributed free of charge to teachers and schools throughout the world. The materials are also the basis of public service broadcasts for universal audiences, to help capture the message of living cooperatively with one another.
“THE MAGIC OF THE WAY TO HAPPINESS LIES IN ITS POWER TO BRING HAPPINESS IN EVERY INDIVIDUAL, EVERY COMMUNITY AND EVERY GROUP. IT TRANSCENDS ALL COMMUNITIES, ALL COUNTRIES. IT’S A GLOBAL PHENOMENON.”
