All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

Report of the Board of Enquiry into Scientology.
«Scientology is evil; its techniques evil; its practice a serious threat to the community, medically, morally and socially; and its adherents sadly deluded and often mentally ill.»
«The effect of prolonged processing and training is that the critical faculties and common sense of the individual are destroyed, so that he comes to believe that Hubbard is right, scientology is right and everything else is wrong, and that the greatest thing that he can do is to work for Hubbard and thereby assist in saving the world.»
«In various places Hubbard has written to the effect that arthritis, eye conditions, heart conditions, cancer, all psychosomatic illnesses, morning sickness, ulcers, tuberculosis, the common cold, the common cough, illness from bacterial or virus infections, alcoholism and a multitude of other complaints and conditions are engramic and respond to processing.»
«The evil consequences of this deception have
been dealt with at length in this Report:
Chapter 18 deals with the dangerous hypnotic aspects of
Chapter 19 deals with the spurious healing claims made by
Chapter 21 deals with the general effects of processing. The
hostility with which Hubbard so violently attacks the orthodox
medical and psychological professions, dealt with in
Chapter 22, produces a great fear and loathing of these
professions in the minds of his adherents, who are thus
conditioned to avoid at all costs medical practitioners,
«If there should be detected in this Report a
note of unrelieved denunciation of scientology, it is because
the evidence has shown its theories to be fantastic and
impossible, its principles perverted and ill-founded, and its
techniques debased and harmful. Scientology is a delusional
belief system, based on fiction and fallacies and propagated by
falsehood and deception. While making an appeal to the public as
a worthy system whereby ability, intelligence and personality
may be improved, it employs techniques which further its real
purpose of securing domination over and mental enslavement of
its adherents. It involves the administration by persons without
any training in medicine or psychology of quasi-psychological
treatment, which is harmful medically, morally and socially.
