Scientology Heresy: Jon Atack on L. Ron Hubbard's Debt to Psychiatry - 2013-09-07
Jon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. He has a new edition of the book for sale, and on Saturdays he's helping us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet.
Jon, we have a feeling you're going to get us in a lot of trouble this week. You've been unearthing some real gems for us recently, but in this investigation, you've found some connections in the early writings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard that suggest he owes a greater debt to some psychiatric techniques than his followers might like to admit. We have a feeling today's comment section is going to be lively!
So what did you find, Jon?
