Apocalyptic and Xenubaby: here's my two cents as a never-been scilon. First, Nothing is ever any one person's fault. Hubbard was a con and mentally unstable. I think Danger Mouse is also mentally unstable but I cannot really figure out if he too is a con. I think it is more likely that he grew up in this cult and is too far gone for any sort of normalcy. He is a Napolean. In short (forgive the really bad pun) he'll never be a "wog" which is sad because "wog" is a far better existence than being tethered to some bizarre-ass belief system (apologies). I don't contribute much here because I like to lurk, but if you really want to know what this NON scio thinks, I think the whole thing is and always was a scam. I'll run back to my lurking now.
Nice post pollywog.
Love your distinction between being 'mentally unstable' and being 'a con'. And, your (short) 'pun' deserves far more praise, than apologies.
For the record, the major difference between Napoleon and Miscaviage is that Napoleon was born in Corsica to parents of noble Genoese ancestry and trained as an artillery officer in mainland France, and Miscaviage wasn't.
