The Deterioration of Liberty - Russian Edition

I admit that some man occasionally will become afraid

and will become totally gripped by the belief that there

is menace in every fellow man. I admit that a human

being can become so aberrated as to constitute a menace

to the bulk of the society and that in such a case it is

necessary to reacquaint him with society. But I will not

admit that there is a naturally bad, evil man on Earth.

— L. Ron Hubbard

The single word “liberty” articulates not only basic

rights, such as freedom of speech and religion, but

many other vital concepts: opportunity, choice,

security and even happiness. Indeed, it is a word that symbolizes

the dreams and goals of every human being.

Yet its very power makes it liable to abusive ends entirely

opposed to its true meaning. In consequence, both individual

and national freedoms can be eroded in a manner that escapes

detection. If this deterioration of liberty is not spotted and reversed,

a people can lose many of their basic rights and ultimately fail to

recognize, and thus arrest, a slide into a police state.

On the hard?won and cherished liberties of nations depends

everything its citizens hold most dear. In affirming the basic

decency and upholding the fundamental rights of each

individual, Ron provides an embracive understanding that

vitally concerns all.
