Arnie Lerma's Best of the newsgroup alt.religion.scientology number three
"Man positively needs general ideas and convictions that will give a meaning to his life and enable him to find his place in the universe. He can stand the most incredible hardships when he is convinced that they make sense but he is crushed when, on top of all his misfortunes, he has to admit that he is taking part in a 'tale told by an idiot.". Carl Jung

is their Lord of the Flies....I am pleased and baffled that posts such as this help me to
rid of more vestiges of cultic mind think.It is a great segway from this,
to the story of the shipwrecked kids building what they think is a society
alone on an island in the book called Lord of the Flies.

Joe Harrington's Last posting:
Hubbard's highest crime against his fellow man is that he ruthlessly
exploited the good intentions of the many who would believe in him.
And he did this, IMO, to fill the void of his personal insecurity and
his need for self-aggrandizement.
Serpent in the Whitehouse: With all of Clinton's dodgy relationships being brought to attention, why hasn't anybody thoroughly investigated his unbashful endorsements of the scientology cult? Because they don't understand scientology and they haven't asked the right question: are the Clinton's practicing Scientologists? I believe scientology is the missing link between the Clinton administrations actions and motives. Like scientology, the Clinton administration holds itself above the law and has mastered use of the fair game policy.
CAN Alert: October 1998 " Scientology served the warehouse owners with some legal mumbo jumbo about a 3rd party writ and scared them into locking out the CAN staff and supporters involved in the preservation project.

Dorian Files - In a series I have described as 'manipulative' to 'Evil because of his support for the philosophy of Nazi Eugenics' to a 'Scientology OSA Operation', this mystery man tells a story both compelling, insane and repulsive... much like L Ron Hubbard...purportedly about the origins of scientology...

What does $cientology do with all that hot poop in those 'confessional' files? - one ex -member reports that they all go into a huge database on Scientology's mainframe computer system called "INCOMM" and whenever there is a problem somewhere, the names of people that they have the dirt on is located and the information is used as 'leverage' to effect the solution that Scientology desires. And this conduct is considered a non profit charitable activity?
