[Narrator] But if that's what Mr. Cruise has brought to this world, there still remains one more word on the man: Call it "Tom Cruise on Tom Cruise Scientologist."
[Tom Cruise] I think it's a privilege to call yourself a Scientologist.
And it's something you have to earn. And because a Scientologist does, he or she has the ability to create new and better realities, and improve conditions. Being a Scientologist, you look at someone, and you know absolutely that you can help them.
So me, it really is KSW [Keeping Scientology Working].
And it's something that I don't mince words with that -- you know, with anything!
But that policy to me has really gone "Phhhttt!" Boy! And this time I went through and I said, "You know what?"
When I read it I just went "Poooohhhh!" This is it! That's exactly it!
Being a Scientologist, when you drive past an accident, it's not like anyone else.
If you drive past, you know you have to do something about it, because you know you're the only one who can really help.
But that's what drives me, is I know we have an opportunity to really help, for the first time to effectively change people's lives. And I am dedicated to that. And I am absolutely, uncompromisingly -- Phooooh! Dedicated to that!
Orgs are there to help, okay? But we also, as the public, say, "We have a responsibility." It's not just the orgs. It's not just David Miscavige. It's not just me.
It's you. It's everyone out there. Kind of re-reading KSW, and looking at what needs to be done, and saying, "Okay. Am I going to do it, or am I not going to do it?" Period!
Am I going to look at that guy, or am I too afraid because I have my own out-ethics to put in someone else's ethics? And that's all it comes down to.
And I won't hesitate to put ethics in on someone else, you know, because I put it ruthlessly in on myself. And I think that I respect that in others.
And, you know, I'm there to help. And we're here to help. And my opinion is that "Look, you're either on board, on you're not on board." Okay? But if you're on board, you're on board just like the rest of us. Period.
We are the authorities on getting people off drugs. We are the authorities on the mind. We are the authorities on improving conditions. We can rehabilitate criminals. The way to happiness. We can bring peace, and unite cultures. Once you know these tools, and you know that they work, it's not good enough that I'm just doing okay.
Traveling the world and meeting the people that I've met, you know, talking with these leaders in various fields -- they want to help! And they are depending upon people who know, and who can be effective, and do it. And that's us! That is our responsibility to do that.
It is the time now. Now is the time, okay? Being a Scientologist, people are turning to you. You better know it! You better know it!
And if you don't, you know, go and learn it, you know. But don't pretend you know it, or fool, whatever -- it's like, we're here to help.
If you're a Scientologist, you see life. You see things the way they are. In all its glory, you know. All of its complexity. And the more you know as a Scientologist, you don't become overwhelmed by it.
