A common-sense moral code
Submitted By Susanne Reich
It may seem rather ambitious to try to fight crime with a booklet, but that is precisely what a group of South Bay residents is doing: distributing thousands of copies of a little booklet called The Way to Happiness door-to-door in Eastside San Jose. To date, more than 7,000 copies have been distributed.
Scientology Volunteer Coordinator Elaine Manley says, "The news media tells us that crime is getting worse in San Jose and we know that local communities have been hampered by budget cuts. I felt it was time that we stepped up to help make San Jose a safer place."
The Way to Happiness was written by L. Ron Hubbard in 1981 to be the first moral code based on common sense. Its purpose is to help arrest the current moral decline in society and restore mutual trust among people. It was specifically written so that it could be followed by anyone, of any race, color or creed.
