As creepy as Scientologists seem to be,almost without exception, I don't think L. Ron can be accused of the same pervy crimes that most other cultleaders are undoubtedly very guilty of.
This endless psychobabble can sound ,at times, like complete common sence,and one can clearly see why this philosfoohey of the bleeding obvious appeals to one dimensional nothings like John Travolta and Tom Cruise. There is something fundamentally disquieting about enforced 'Happiness'.A wide beaming smile can hide a whole range of personality disorders,hence the use of the phrase 'Happy House' as an alternative reference for a secure mental institution.
This stuff is the new Buddhism,obvious but unattainable solutions to obvious and,sadly, too attainable problems.They pride themselves on not only being a 'godless' belief, but also claim a scientific and psychotherapuetic basis to their beliefs. Again the word 'Love' is used often to deflect from the clear mind controlling methods that are applied.........Nah, it ain't mind control it's Love,you're part of the problem.
Both Buddhism and Scientology also have recognizable Gods.One being Buddha himself,and the other, noneother than Lafayette Ronald Hubbard, pulp science fiction writer,musician,inventor and cult leader.
I don't have to tell you that this is weird as fuck!.....and ,knowing the reputation of Scientolgy's zero tolerence policy for anyone who slags them off in any way, this may be the last thing I write before I get closed down for the third time.
