The title of this thread is misleading.
But in so far as the bomb was now an inexorable fact of existence, and, as Heinlein so colorfully phrased it, "You can't turn the sausage back into a hog," . . .
If you need any proof whether or not someone is insane, they confirm it
with the revelation "April Fools !" ( Type 4-PTS)
Despite what you`ve heard Marty has posted again since his "Hubbard`s history is a crock... "
There is no mention of April or any other month for that matter.
What he has posted is...
Marty explains why his site is called "Moving on up a little higher."
Actually he could have called his site "Staying in a little longer."
While I acknowledge the many evils of Scientology, it's hard for me to imagine a trained auditor quitting delivering sessions to people, when they know they can help.
How about he was simply an hyper-active self-promoter; a significant fault certainly but one which is extremely common generally and especially in marketing centered societies like the west.
Um... no. Hubbard was much more than that. He defrauded people in a (successful) attempt to artificially generate the respect, admiration and riches that were denied him by the Powers that Be, because they were smart enough to realize that he was a useless, self-aggrandizing blowhard.
Hubbard's intentions were not to help mankind; they were to help Hubbard. He was a narcissist and I'm pretty sure he was a sociopath.
And yet he still has people doing his dirty work by trying to clean up his image (which is what the above sounds like to me, Mark, to be honest). No need - he's not an eternal Thetan who needs his name cleared. The fucker's dead and gone, and good riddance.
