1. He followed his own advice in this case:
“Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion”
2. “Anti-Chinese Racism, from a 1928 diary entry:
[The Chinese] have neither the foresight or endurance to overrun any white country in any way except by intermarriage. One American marine could stand off a great many yellowmen without much effort.
A Chinaman can not live up to a thing, he always drags it down.
They smell of all the baths they didn’t take.
The trouble with China is, there are too many chinks here. “
3. On training black South Africans in the ways of Scientology:
“The South African native is probably the one impossible person to train in the entire world; he is probably impossible by any human standard.”
4. On Japanese people and their language:
“One of the reasons they [the Japanese] have bad eyesight is probably these microscopic characters [furigana] which have many lines and strokes to them.& We wonder why they went mad and bombed Pearl Harbor when they knew they couldn’t win. That [the Japanese language] would be a reason.”
5. On Arabs, from a 1958 lecture:
“He’s [the Arab] been going crazy steadily and gradually ever since he lost the early very fertile basins of the Middle East. He’s been going crazy ever since he failed to learn wheat farming and brought about the erosion of all of the fertile areas of the Middle East.
This race has been going for a very, very long time and has been eating death for a very long time and it is death.”
6. Apartheid Apologist:
“The problem of South Africa is different than the world thinks. There is no native problem. The native worker gets more than white workers do in England!
The South African government is not a police state. It’s easier on people than the United States government!”
7. On dealing with criticism:
“Never discuss Scientology with the critic. Just discuss his or her crimes, known and unknown.”
8. Threatening anyone who opposes Scientology:
“We are slowly and carefully teaching the unholy a lesson. It is as follows: We are not a law enforcement agency. BUT we will become interested in the crimes of people who seek to stop us. If you oppose scientology we promptly look up - and find and expose - your crimes. If you leave us alone we will leave you alone.
It’s very simple. Even a fool can grasp that.
And don’t underrate our ability to carry it out.”
“And I don’t see that popular measures, self-abnegation and democracy have done anything for Man but push him further into the mud. Currently, popularity endorses degraded novels, self-abnegation has filled the Southeast Asian jungles with stone idols and corpses, and democracy has given us inflation and income tax.”
