    Hubbard was one sick fuck, and what he wrote as sick fiction paled in comparison to how fucked up he was in real life.

    He should have stayed on Venus, or Uranus!

    Lol!! This is the most awesome review!

    I really liked the Mission Earth books. My friend Sue, who was ED at the time, had borrowed all of them from various public, and I would be eagerly waiting for her to finish one so I could read the next in the series. Off to a psychologist for me - seriously!!

    But I have to blame a lot of it on actually being in the cult - the smug approval of the idea that psychologists would do such a thing - and I was really shocked at the Jewish stuff I saw when I went googling it for the other thread the other day. How did I not notice that??

    There was just this acceptance in the Scientology world about Rockefeller and the evil bankers and the evil psychs and that Hubbard was just so fundamentally good and right in all his pronouncements and deeds - it really takes reading this sort of stuff to get a good look in the mind of a Scientologist.

    I was also shocked at how awful the writing was - and how did I not notice that? With Battlefield Earth, I knew I wasn't reading great literature, but it was a great story, I thought, and I couldn't put the book down. That was in my Christian days where I was loaned it by one of the brothers and spent all Christmas camp in my caravan reading it - feeling guilty about missing church services and outings etc. But the writing in the Mission Earth quotes I saw online was so kindergarten. But I digress!

    You would think that these days a lot of those books would qualify as hate speech for most people. I'm surprised that they are not too embarrassed to publish them. I mean not just the anti-Semitic but the homophobic stuff. You could actually do a really good thesis on Hubbard just from the analysis of the Mission Earth series.

    When the Mission Earth series came out there was a glowing review in London's Time Out magazine, written by a famous UK author.

    I used to know the author's sister. She told me he was a Scientologist who had been Declared and that writing the review was part of his A-E formula.

    In reality he thought the books were crap.

    When did you come to that conclusion? :biggrin:

    My final conclusion was this pic of Annie Tidman:

    If I saw a fat old bastard putting hands and looking at a young woman that way I wouldn't shut up.

    Was he thinking how he would like to break her legs by violently raping her? Would you be at all surprised if that was actually going through his mind? I wouldn't.

    Yes, a very sick and delusional man, a rather brilliant con though, albeit grossly marred by the damage created.

    Enjoy this bit of his glory~

    Where on freaking earth did he learn to pronounce the word 'galaxy'? Oh wait, not on earth . . . :nervous:

    Really, though, that is not the way to pronounce it, is it? I mean, I have never ever heard it pronounced that way.
    :confused2:

    But then I grew up pronouncing Uranus wrong - or did they change that somewhere along the way, thinking urine (is us) sounds better than your anus . . ?

    It will always be the anus pronunciation for me! I'm too old to change and snickered about it too much as a kid. No way I'm going with the urine one.

    Oh, believe me, I always knew he was a sicko but just reading the quotes in the OP re-re-re-re-re-re-re-confirmed it.

    Does somebody with graphic photoshop skills wanna put a bubble caption over hubbard's head that quotes something out of his porn writings?

    i picked up BE a few years ago in SF. found a copy in a box of books left out in the street. i was surprised to find myself captivated by it; a real page turner. ron engaged me in a remarkable "suspension of disbelief" and sold me on the idea of a primitive tribal human defeating and destroying a space-faring empire...

    now ME...

    this was really cool...

    i had started reading the first book a few years earlier and blown of it when i creeped out over a literary device where used a manco devil to telegraph to an educated reader that he was, among other things, discussing "the 'craft" as it is known; the old religion; wicca; witchcraft...

    but then a few years later, feeling a bit stronger, i said to myself "i think i'd like to pick that ME series back up". i said that to myself silently. i didn't move my lips when i said it. and i was all alone in a room when when i said that to myself silently without moving my lips. and yet somehow it didn't feel like a big surprise when i walked in to my friend's room two day later and saw a cardboard box marked "ammunition" with a pristine set of the ten ME series. i asked my friend where he got it and he said someone cleaning out some space gave it to him and i could have it for five bucks...

    true story

    What did you think of it?
     
  15. Re: From the Creator of Scientology: "Rape Therapy" - a review of Mission Earth Seri

    well...

    i thought in some respects it was not very well written. l ron hubbard never in the course of his writing career ever developed an ear for the music of language...

    on the other hand...

    i found it on the surface to be an entertaining read and was surprised at it's depth

    so far as i know, i am the only writer who has stated the obvious. that it is not jettero heller who is elron's alter ego in the book but soltan gris. ME is elon's parting statement and...

    as he was about as honest a creature as any of us despicable clawed bipeds can be he closes his life by MAKING CONFESSION!!!

    and as a ordained judeochristian member of clergy i was pleased to discover that he used a well familiar literary device to name jesus of nazareth as god incarnate
     
  16. Re: From the Creator of Scientology: "Rape Therapy" - a review of Mission Earth Seri

    and...

    one of the things i really liked about the book is right near the end he tosses in a little, one sentence, "wink of the eye" to those who are correctly reading his pri mary theme to let them know they are in fact correctly reading his primary theme...

    which of course also serves as "key under the doormat" for those who wish to unlock it's central theme...

    Hmmm, I think he was clever in that Scientologists reading it believe his alter ego is Jettero Heller, but anyone outside who knows anything about him, knows that Soltan Gris is. Although, it is quite possible that he saw himself as both, the swashbuckling hero and the pusillanimous villain. I think Heller was his ideal identity and Gris was his real identity.
     
  18. Re: From the Creator of Scientology: "Rape Therapy" - a review of Mission Earth Seri

    yes...

    he is (and isn't) both jettero and soltan. and he is also penwell. he finishes the novel as he finishes his life, going back to write. penwell is a refugee from some pastoral place where the main event is "the wooly crop". i would submit for intelligent consideration this translates into mr hubbard no longer being amenable to gazing at the production numbers of the sheep-shearing operation with which he had so long been associated

    You are on or own with that. LOL That would mean getting way nearer to that one's mind that I would go with someone else's barge-pole.


    Oddly, I find my reaction to Hub's sicko more out of proportion to some of the weird fetishes described out there in various media. It is tame and so bizarrely un-erotic. Yet it is creepy.

    Maybe they've been edited? (One hopes!!!) :confused2:
