A friend of L. Ron Hubbard quotes him as stating ""If you want to make a million dollars.... start a religion!"" And that is exactly what Hubbard did. He made more then a million and his cult is still pilfering it members bank accounts, while the current leader, David Miscavige, lives a life of luxury and violently abuses his staff. If you want to learn the truth about Scientology and Hubbard, just look on the internet. You can read Hubbards college report card, how he dropped out in his second year with a D average. You can read his arrest record for check fraud. You can read his letter to the Navy begging for psychiatric treatment. You can hear his son, in his own words, tell about how his dad gave him drugs as a child and forced him to practice black magic rituals. You can hear Hubbard in his own words talking about his ""good friend"" Alister Crowley (known as the most evil man ever to live). You can read how Hubbard encouraged his followers to never use any kind of drugs, yet was found to be on psychiatric medication when he died. Hubbard was also being sought by the FBI for his role in the LARGEST case of domestic espionage in US history, but he died in hiding before he could be arrested.
In short, L. Ron Hubbard should be remembered as on of histories most successful con men and a man that is responsible for the destruction of thousands of families and lives. Of course his brainwashed followers will deny all of the above documented facts. Scientology belongs in Hollywood, because it is based on pure fantasy and lies.
