In recent days, I've received some insight into this megalomaniacal mindset from an unlikely source. In her new book, Inside Scientology, Rolling Stone reporter Janet Reitman tells the story of how a mentally unbalanced pill-popping bigamist named L. Ron Hubbard turned his fevered space-opera fantasies and medical conspiracy theories into a cult-cum-business that, at the time of his death in 1986, was worth $400-million. Hubbard wasn't a politician, but he was very much a fascist - as evidenced by the sadistic punishments meted out to "dissident" Scientologists, and by the creepy power-worship themes that suffused many of his hack science fiction stories.
