In doing this course, be very certain you never go past a word you do not fully understand. The only reason a person gives up a study or becomes confused or unable to learn is because he has gone past a word he did not understand.

The confusion or inability to understand or learn comes AFTER a word you did not know the meaning of. It might not only be the new and unusual words that you did not understand.

One of the most important facts in the whole subject of study is that you must never go past a word that you do not understand.

In every subject that you took up and then left incomplete, you will find that there were words that you read but you did not know what they meant.

So while doing this course be very, very certain you never go past a word you do not fully understand.

If what you are studying becomes confusing or you can’t seem to understand it, there will be a WORD just earlier that you have not understood.

Don’t go any further, but go back to BEFORE you got into trouble and find the word you did not fully understand. Wherever you see a word that is underlined, you can click on it and it will immediately give you the meaning of that word.

As you go through the course, you can also click on the menu at the top of each course page where it says “Glossary” (which is a list of words and what they mean) and it will take you to a list of words used in the course and give you the meaning of each.

If you cannot find the word you are looking for listed in the glossary, get a simple dictionary and look up its meaning there.

Welcome to the Ethics and the Conditions Online Course

There is no one on earth who doesn’t find themselves in a bad condition at some time in their life. Perhaps a personal relationship suddenly goes wrong, he has difficulty paying his bills, or the business is in trouble.

Common advice today is just to “learn and grow” from the bad experience. But that isn’t any help and doesn’t tell you what you can actually do.

And what about when things start going very well—how can you continue your success?

L. Ron Hubbard researched a workable method to find out the exact condition of any part of your life, and laid out the exact steps on how to improve it.

These formulas work because they’re based on the natural laws of life.

With the real solutions and practical steps you will learn in this course, you will have real tools to help yourself, as well as your friends, your family, your businesses and even your entire community.

Survival and Ethics

Survival is the act of continuing to exist or of being alive.

A person can survive or he can succumb (fail or die) depending on his ability to get and hold the money, property or possessions he needs for survival.

The security of a good job, for example, means some certainty that you will survive well. The man who makes a good living can afford better clothing against the weather, a better home, medical care for himself and his family, good transportation and the respect of his friends. All these things help his survival.

Ethics is the study of right and wrong behavior and of the specific choices a person makes in living his life or in dealing with other people.

Ethics also means the actions a person takes on himself to reach the highest level of survival for himself and others.

Every person has an ability to survive. How well he accomplishes this depends on how well he uses ethics in his life.

Ethics exists for the person himself.

It exists to give the person a way to increase his survival and free himself from the dwindling spiral (continuous worsening) of today’s world.

The whole subject of ethics is one which, with the society in its current state, has become almost lost.

Ethics actually is working toward the highest level of survival for the person, his family, the groups he is part of, Mankind and all other parts of life.

The best solution to any problem would be that solution which brought the greatest benefits to all parts of your life.

The poorest solution would be that solution which brought the greatest harm to all parts of your life.

Ethics are the actions a person takes on himself to bring about the best possible survival for himself and others. Ethical actions are survival actions. Without a use of ethics we do not survive.
