Some Blog I Wrote

stuff i think about and then type on a keyboard

I hear the Nazis were fond of salons.

Salon finishes its four-part series on Scientology with this article and this one.

The more I read about Scientology, the more I think the religion is more about advancing an agenda than the "search for meaning" I mentioned earlier. In the same article, I also advanced my belief that the most distinguishing characteristic of a cult is the mimicking of the founder's paranoid among his or her followers. If you have any doubts that L. Ron Hubbard was paranoid, look no further than these documents offered by The Smoking Gun, featuring his typical clumsy, rambling prose. (The stuff about Nixon might induce hysterical laughter.)
