The rest of the book – many chapters, hours of the audio book – consists basically of LRH wisdom and ideas regarding how to organize a universe based on a permanent peace economy. This all in the form of fictional events, speeches and narrative.
The arrangement was that if any of the major societies of all the universes ever got belligerent, they would all be blown to smithereens by special weapons teleported to their capital cities and related locations from secret locations throughout the universes. Their first job, therefore, was to police each other and ensure none got out of hand. This is the “carry a very big stick” part. That the secret teleport locations were never constructed was of little consequence; the “big stick” worked.
The grizzled and craven diplomats that had to be convinced that peace would work in place of their planned wars to solve the economic collapse brought about by the demise of the Psychlo Empire were perhaps the biggest challenge. LRH’s account of these negotiations was tense and intriguing.
The “Selachee” bankers were handled by extremely cunning means, and ultimately became friendly.
Further discoveries were made about the history of Psychlo which made it clearer what had happened there.
A new kind of surgery was invented which allowed the few remaining Psychlos to have their brain implants removed and feel comfortable among other sentient beings for the very first time.
A combination of technical innovation – which had actually been suppressed by the Psychlos – and the unleashed creative power of countless ordinary people finally released from the terrible lie that they were no more than “mere animals” resulted in a level of prosperity and happiness throughout the universes unlike any had ever known or anything that had ever been recorded in millions of years of histories.
Perhaps this could some day come to be. I know the author wanted to encourage us to at least try.
