This one may sound a little like code #2 but this is aimed more toward groups. We live in an era where it seems like most people join a group or organization with one foot out the door, ready to abandon it at the first word of bad news or rumor about that group. Whether that news or rumor is true or not, you have to look at the whole purpose and work that group does to come to a true decision on them.
Never desert a group to which you owe your support is Code of Honor point #3. What factors could you look at in determining if you should support a group? Here are some points:
1) Are they more constructive to society than destructive, in other words, doing the greatest good for the overall scene?
2) Do they do what they say and deliver what they promise more times than not?
3) Can what that group produces help improve your life and others?
Those are just some. If a group meets the above, it's a safe bet to assume that they are worthy of your support. As part of one group, Scientology, we can never "go on automatic" and think people will support us because of what we do. As for you, the only way you will truly come to an answer for the above is to Look and Observe. Be critical, doubting or skeptical if you want but also be sure to Look !
Does Scientology deserve your support? How about the Red Cross, Microsoft, your local police or even the government ? Look and find out for yourselves.
