I just did a whole lot of deleting between, "your story just gets better and better" and "your story just gets worse and worse".
I know you've read my story and all, but that is one of the things that woke me up. I was so sure Hubbard wouldn't have a problem with me reading about Wicca - my prarents confirmed this much later when they insisted that what was done at Delphi was wrong - but people's actions showed me that regardless of what the stated intentions of the Tech were, that was the overwhelming result.
I think that's what happens when you say that one person's words have more value than the whole of human knowledge, all the wonderful bits of wisdom that civilization has collected over the last several thousand years, that's the result you get. A huge group of people who (openly or privately) depreciate all other information.
Also... how is Shakespeare not one of the three Rs? How is Shakespeare not freakin' reading, huh? That's so LAME.
