Can't help but feel this is a terribly unfair dismissal of the courageous individuals who, during the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, and later, made a huge difference.
Scientology is a secretive subject and exposing its secrets was very important.
Scientology is also a confusing subject, and analyses of it also were important.
I guess it's necessary to have "been there" during this time period to really understand.
The Internet makes it look easy, but before the Internet it was not easy.
Ask Paulette Cooper and so many others.
They are not irrelevant; they are essential, and I thank them.
This is not an argument thread, and ITYIWT probably didn't mean it the way it sounded, but just for the record, I felt this post needed to be made and, as the thread where it would have been placed was just closed (and I'm glad it was closed), I put it here.
