How Much Is Another Man Or Woman’s Freedom Worth To You?
VOL III ISSUE IV
HOW MUCH IS ANOTHER MAN OR WOMAN’S FREEDOM WORTH TO YOU?
How much do you value a sane society where you could move about any street without fear and where those you love are not threatened by crime or being persuaded to go for an “easy high” on drugs. How much do you thrill at seeing the ecstasy of a man or woman becoming free?
Today men’s lives and the sanity of a society are in jeopardy. In spite of wishful thinking or the illusion things are improving this society is going more out of control, and threats to survival are increasing. If not corrected, this will lead to destruction for all.
It is time for action. It is time to begin to restore this situation, which has deteriorated so badly, to one which is more sane, and nearer the ideal. In this society, drugs/alcohol dependency and criminal behavior are the areas of greatest departure from this ideal. Corrective action must be taken.
Narconon provides the means. Operating in schools, communities and penal institutions across the U.S., it is moving this area of greatest departure toward the ideal. It is a tool. If used well and expanded, it will bring this area of social ruin nearer and nearer to the ideal.
A tool such as Narconon is valuable to the extent it is used. It requires energy and direction to be effective. This must come from those who care enough to do something about this situation.
Narconon works. Those who are using it are delivering you a sane society. If this product is valuable to you, if you want to do more about freeing men and bringing about a more ideal scene, then support Narconon as a volunteer or donor. Your help can make the difference.

The name Communication Course sounds so simple, and means so much to me now! Knowing that I really have so much deeper an understanding of what it really means to communicate with someone and to have him communicate with me I feel far more powerful than I have ever felt before. Graduating from this Communication Course has given me the push I needed to get out in the world and do things, both for myself and for other people. I know that there is much more to learn and do and I can scarcely wait to get started. Narconon is really fantastic, and I plan to get that news to as many people as I can. I thank everybody who helped me to reach this win!

I just completed two of the practical procedures for the third time and really feel good about it. The handling of originations was really great.
If one applied all technology from Narconon in his everyday life he could be completely at cause over it, there would be a real sense of harmony with everyone he came in contact with.
Life is so very wonderful once you find yourself and the role you are to play in it. With Narconon I found my place in life. Thank you.

‘NARCONON’ WHAT IS IT?
El Paso citizens became a little safer and some El Pasoians became considerably saner last summer when NARCONON the internationally acclaimed drug abuse rehabilitation program opened its doors to addicts who have been systematically robbing El Paso of money and merchandise to feed the drug dealing machinery of organized crime for many years.
The losses to individual citizens that NARCONON has already prevented by rehabilitating those who must steal to support their habits is typified by this statement by an expert (ex) pickpocket who may have bumped into you at the bank during rush hour. He chose his victims by the number of $100 bills he saw them withdrawing from tellers windows: “I had been using $200 worth of heroin a day for over half of my life. I am now 41 years old and if it hadn’t been for NARCONON I’d have gone on collecting the syndicate tax from people until I died.”
The aim of NARCONON is to achieve more than the restoration of the drug users to his former self; it creates in the individual a greater potential and capability than he ever knew he possessed. And they are succeeding-thus far with no help from the government. The reason why NARCONON has grown at a rate unprecedented by other rehabilitative systems is found in its results-better than 70% success throughout the world since 1966. Critics of NARCONON are never argued with. The people in NARCONON just point at ex-addicts living happy and productive lives. The teachers, (“I know I ’m really reaching my students for the first time now”), the salesmen (“After one week at NARCONON my sales went from the bottom to the top and have stayed there for three months now”), the Nuns (“I recommend that the program be fully supported by anyone who is seriously trying to help a community such as El Paso solve its drug abuse problem”), the school administrators (“I personally see genuine value in offering an elective course in NARCONON techniques of communication to high school students having witnessed their effectiveness”), the soldier (“I now know how promotions are made and I know I can make it without compromising my ethics”), the psychologists (“There is no other system that I have ever seen that holds even the promise of doing what NARCONON does as a matter of routine” ) , the businessmen (“Getting others to share my intention is the best thing my company’s cash/bill ratio has ever had”), and Probation Officers (“NARCONON is incomparably superior to any rehabilitative technique known to me. And it’s so fast”).
NARCONON is big, big news all over the world. Crime and drug abuse recede in direct proportion to NARCONON expansion. And thanks to their taking on “the floodgate” of the Nation’s drug flow, America can look forward to enjoying a safe, drug-free civilization a lot sooner than many people have dared hope. NARCONON, with its unique approach, is the beginning of the end of the “freaked-out” chemical culture.

THE KIND OF INMATE WHO JOINS NARCONON
Narconon is a Drug Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention Program its purpose is to enable all those individuals who have attempted to find freedom through drugs, Crime or social revolt to find it by increasing their abilities and responsibility level instead.
The completion of this purpose is quite an achievement by an inmate who enters Narconon, considering his environment. James V. Bennett, Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, has expressed the negative conditions a man meets when he comes to prison when he said, “We imprison men to punish them, yet hope to reform them. We discipline men to punish them, yet hope to teach them self-reliance. We regiment them and depersonalize them, and yet hope to make them respected individuals. We suppress initiative and independence yet much teach them initiative and independence. We isolate them from normal, law abiding citizens, yet claim our goal is to make them normal, law-abiding citizens. We won’t let them make any choice, but to make the right ones.”
So you can see that any incarcerated man who joins Narconon is taking the first big step in his life to become a respected individual. He sees that the prison system is failing in its goal of rehabilitation so he is doing something about it. The man who joins Narconon does not want to come back to prison. The results of the program have been excellent. The statistics show that this is a program that works. The majority of participants who have been released from prison are leading gainful lives free from drugs or crime. Based on available information the recidivism rate of Narconon participants has been consistently less than 20 percent while the non-participants have a recidivism rate of around 65-75 percent.
Narconon is an antithesis to the prison system as described by James V. Bennett. Narconon reforms where prison punishes. Narconon teaches self-reliance while prisons discipline rigidly. Narconon teaches a man to respect himself even though the prison regiment and depersonalize a man. Narconon teaches initiative and independence while prisons suppress those qualities. Narconon teaches you to make decisions especially correct, while prisons will not let you make any decisions. It should be evident by now that the Narconon approach is a correct one.
It is important to point out at this time that Narconon is a voluntary program that is run by inmates for inmates. So society should cheer that there are men in prison who want to do something about their lives and are doing something about it.
NARCONON MEANS: non-narcosis or the absence of stupor and insensibility. It brings about freedom from drugs and crime.
Narconon is a non-profit organization dedicated to the reduction of drug abuse and crime.
