Scientologists are very susceptible to conspiracy theories. It doesn’t matter much WHAT it is, many Scientologists readily buy into amu idea that there are a group of evil people determined to enslave/destroy/poison/control people. Here we have, according to Brian Gardner, “the most evil individuals of our time” (scientists?) trying to foist off the big lie…
Brian is a hardcore scientologist — you only need know he was the “PR” for SFO Org and read his last sentence to dispel any possible doubts about that.
Why is this willingness to latch on to these theories so prevalent in scientology? Because one of the all time great conspiracy theorists was none other than L. Ron Hubbard.
It began for Hubbard with the APA and AMA who were somehow in cahoots to destroy Dianetics. He added more and more to the conspiracy as the years went by and at the end of his life his forces of evil trying to destroy him and “man’s only hope” included bankers, the media (chaos merchants”), drug companies, Interpol, all tax agencies, the FBI, CIA, Naval Intelligence, courts, judges, police forces and of course, every single psychiatrist and psychologist on earth. With a teacher/guru instilling this worldview it’s no mystery that scientologists love conspiracies.
