Hey...that was an interesting read.
Just a quick input...there's nothing original in Scientology, whatever you find good in it it's been stolen from different Bits and pieces of Psychology, ancient cultures and other stuff.
LRH was no scientist, Scientology has no access to any technology, nothing whatsoever, in fact...Scientology is the opposite to Science.
The main reason why they want to consider Psychiatry the enemy is because Scientology is, indeed, plain glibberish nonsense taken from different aspects of different disciplines all put together by a Sci-Fi writer and any psychologist or Psychiatrist consulted on this will tell that you need help if you believe in that.
Not more than the Mayan Calendar, Human Design, Hypnosis or any other Self-help new age discipline for desperate people feeling lonely.
People wants to believe in something because they're afraid of many things, and it's not difficult to convince any lost soul about anything...just tell them what they wanna hear, or something funky and exciting to light up their boredom a bit.
So no, Scientology is a scam regardless of LRH or DM, if people want to believe in it...so be it, I don't care.
Which pisses me off is the church status and tax exception, after I get rid of that they can carry on as much as they want 'til OT15, or to the total freedom I don't care.
