During this period L. Ron Hubbard devotes the majority of his time to writing.

He composes a nonreligious moral code, The Way to Happiness, as a solution to the eroding morals in society. The broad distribution and widespread acceptance of this code contributes to a grass-roots movement for improved moral values.

Mr. Hubbard also writes two feature-length screenplays and fifty film treatments for public films on Dianetics and Scientology.

To mark his fiftieth anniversary as a professional writer, L. Ron Hubbard writes the international blockbuster, Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000, the largest science fiction novel written to date.

As part of his two-million-word output during this period, he also writes his science fiction satire, ten-volume magnum opus, Mission Earth.
1982-24 January 1986:
L. Ron Hubbard establishes a California home on a ranch outside of San Luis Obispo. He researches and releases new Scientology technical materials which further expand the route to total freedom, all the way to the highest levels of Operating Thetan.

Battlefield Earth is released in 1982 and becomes an international best seller. L. Ron Hubbard composes music and lyrics for an accompanying album – the first-ever soundtrack for a book.

While the acclaim for Battlefield Earth continues to grow with its publication in new languages, the first volume of his Mission Earth is published in 1985. As each volume of the dekalogy is released it becomes an immediate best seller. The successive appearance of these volumes on the New York Times best seller list constitutes a first in publishing history. Mr. Hubbard accompanies Mission Earth with another new music album.

In 1986 the music album The Road to Freedom is released. With music and lyrics written by L. Ron Hubbard, it is his statement of many basic principles of Scientology.

On 24 January 1986, having accomplished all he set out to do, L. Ron Hubbard departs his body. With millions using his technology daily and crediting him with providing the sole means for their happiness and spiritual fulfillment, he has become one of the most beloved men in history. His many friends continue to express their thanks in acknowledgment of the fact that although his physical presence is gone, he is still very much with us in spirit and the legacy of his work lives on.
