THOSE WHO OPPOSE SCIENTOLOGY
To understand the forces ranged against L. Ron Hubbard, in this war he never started, it is necessary to gain a cursory glimpse of the old and venerable science of psychiatry which was actually none of the aforementioned. As an institution, it dates back to shortly before the turn of the century; it is certainly not worthy of respect by reason of age or dignity; and it does not meet any known definition of a science, what with its hodgepodge of unproven theories that have never produced any result except an ability to make the unmanageable and mutinous more docile and quiet, and turn the troubled into apathetic souls beyond the point of caring.
That it promotes itself as a healing profession is a misrepresentation, to say the least. Its mission is to control.
Psychiatry as we know it today is more priesthood than science. Its conglomeration of half-baked theories is handed down by an arbitrary elite authorities who have attained such status through who they know and who can sweet-talk the government into parting with yet more grant money. While as for what they actually do, there are only three primary methods of treatment electroshock, psychosurgery and psychotropic drugs.
