"Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous.  If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion."   Science Fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.

Because of the recent increases in advertising and activity of this book on Ted Turner's Goodwill Games and other T.V. ads, it is necessary to alert the public to the true nature of Dianetics, its author L. Ron Hubbard, and the leadership of Scientology. They have been thoroughly exposed and denounced the F.B.I., C.I.A., I.R.S., Reader Digest, the courts, various foreign governments, Forbes magazine, the Los Angeles Times, St. Petersburg Times, various respected mental health professionals, and Protestant, Catholic and Jewish Churches.

The following are some of the statements:

"Scientology is one of the oldest, wealthiest, and most dangerous of the major 'new religions' or cults operating in America today."  Scientology:  Anatomy of a Frightening Cult, Readers Digest 5/90.

"Psychological coercion by dangerous mind bending cults under cover of religion can only occur like disease, when there is no immunization against it.  In this case, the immunization is freedom of speech."  Scientology:  The Sickness Spreads, Readers Digest, 9/81.

"As early as the 1950's officials of the American Medical Association were warning that Scientology, known as Dianetics was a cult...the I.R.S. was later able to prove in court that he (Hubbard) was meanwhile skimming money, at least $3 million in 1972 alone and laundering it through schemes involving phone billings, a dummy corporation in Panama and secret Swiss bank accounts.  In 1971 a U.S. federal court upheld a F.D.A. ruling that Hubbard's 'scientific' claims were bogus and that E-meter auditing would no longer be labeled as scientific treatment." The Prophet and Profits of Scientology, Forbes 400, 10/27/86.    

Following a case involving a Scientologist, High Court Justice Latey described Scientology as immoral...corrupt because it is based on lies and deceit...sinister...and dangerous because it is out to capture people...indoctrinate and brainwash them so that they become the unquestioning captives and tools of the cult." London Daily Mail, 7/24/84.

Eleven of the leaders (including L. Ron Hubbard's wife) of the Scientology were convicted and sent to federal prison for conspiring to steal government documents, infiltrate federal agencies, and kidnap a church official who decided to help expose the crimes.  Washington Post, 2/20/85.

"Fifteen Scientologists and the church itself are awaiting trial (some have already been convicted) in Canada on charges stemming from a 1983 police raid in which about 2 million stolen government documents were seized in church offices."  St. Petersburg Times, 12/22/88

The St. Petersburg "Times won a Pulitzer Prize in 1980 for expos
