It's one of those L. Ron Hubbard quotes that gets brought up a lot, especially by those who want to make the point that the "Church" of Scientology really isn't one at all.

Listen carefully to a 1952 lecture, and you'll hear him say it: "The only way you can control a people is to lie to them."

We've seen it raised many, many times in discussions about Scientology, but as with so much about Hubbard and his odd organization, we found that when we took a closer look at it, and put it in the context of the lecture it's a part of, Hubbard's quote is even worse than you imagined.
