That goal is the real goal as far as I am concerned. Things which stand too consistently in my way make me nervous. It's a pretty big job. In a hundred years Roosevelt will have been forgotten~which gives some idea of the magnitude of my attempt. And all this boils and froths inside my head . "Psychiatrists, reaching the high of the dusty desk, tell us that Alexander, Genghis Khan and Napoleon were madmen. I know they're maligning some very intelligent gentlemen. " L. Ron Hubbard wrote these words in a letter to his first wife in 1938. In 1950 he wrote the bestseller Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental Health. This inspired a layman oriented mental health movement which, ultimately, developed into Scientology, the most profitable of the money~making new religions. Hubbard's early Dianetic and Scientology writings borrow freely from Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, and the founder of General Semantics, Alfred Korzybski. And P.T. Barnum appears to have been an inspiration. Hubbard also took much from the writings of Aleister Crowley~self~proclaimed "Beast 666." This is a major source of embarrassment for the Scientology Church, which is determined to achieve broad public acceptance. In the 1960s Hubbard incorporated Brainwashing methodologies into the subject. He established the "Fair Game Policy" which states that an "enemy" of Scientology "may be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist, without discipline of that Scientologtst. May be tricked, sued, lied to or destroyed." He also became the Commodore of his own private navy, and began to refer to himself as the "Source." L. Ron Hubbard, Messiah or Madman? exposes as never before the dark side of Scientology, yet contains an in~depth examination of the potential positives of the subject and their actual origins. Are Hubbard's followers the victims of a highly organized form of "spiritual crazy glue"? Not according to them. There is no shortage of celebrities who claim that Hubbard's teachings and counseling techniques have made their lives happier and themselves more successful. Kirstie Alley, Tom Cruise, and Priscilla Presley are a sample trio of those who have stood and applauded, for minutes on end, a giant photograph of "the man who exposed to them the secrets of life." Yet it can be very dangerous to expose HIS secrets. Most of those with first hand knowledge of the man have been silenced. Fortunately Bent Corydon conducted interviews with many of them before they were pressured not to talk. L. Ron Hubbard, Messiah or Madman? is written with the pace and the feel of a good novel: fact stranger than fiction! At the same time its pages are packed with information to prevent the pursuit of happiness from becoming a "weakness to be exploited." It is a major blow to people~manipulating groups everywhere. A glance at the table of contents offers a glimpse of the varied, strange, and often shocking world of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard. Was he a messiah or was he a madman . ? Bent Corydon was a major figure in Scientology for many years. He was one of the first to broadly publicize the deceits of its Founder. He exposed to the world the corruption and mind~manipulation.
