VIDEO: L. Ron Hubbard solves the Cold War and your bad marriage - 2014-07-19
Ah, Dianetics! Our video source came through again, and we have another "quote video" of an L. Ron Hubbard lecture. In this case, it was Hubbard giving a talk on Dianetics in November 1950, about six months after his best-selling book had come out and created a craze.
To this day, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health is considered "Book One" in the Hubbard canon, and it is still pushed as the introductory text to Scientology.
Time and again, we hear from people who say they first got into Scientology by reading this book, and they tell us how much it spoke to them and really hooked them. And every time they say that, we have to shake our heads.
