From the biography of L. Ron Hubbard

"....shows a man who was incapable of telling the truth: a pathological liar who hated and despised humanity; a sociopath caught between the conflicting desires to earn the admiration of humanity, and his desire to inflict great pain and misery upon those who ignored him and refused him his self-perceived due measure of honor and reverie (which was and is 99.999% of his fellow human beings).
As such, Mister Hubbard was constantly trying to purchase glory and recognition when he had the funds to make the attempt, or stole that recognition by lying and deceiving when money wasn't enough.

Mr. Hubbard was driven by greed and megalomania. He was a devout racist who wrote in praise of South African Apartheid; he was a crazed misogynist who insisted women were inferior intellectually--- later in life his venereal disease (caught from a whore while on leave from the Navy) instilled within him a fear and dread of womankind that expressed itself in insanity and impotency......"""""

L-Ron also counted Heinlein as his pal, and though some RAH fans deny it, Heinlein--a hawk on 'Nam, and Reagan supporter--remained fairly close to L-Ron, up until Hubbard's rather odd demise (CoS doctrine forbids drugs, yet the autopsy showed that L-Ron's bloated corpse was pumped full of barbituates). See also the fairly well-known story of L-Ron's association with Jack the Quack Parsons, rocket scientist, and one of the founders of Cal Tech and JPL (Mike Davis' City of Quartz describes it effectively). Both L-Ron and Parsons had an interest in the occult--that is, until Parsons blew himself up in his Pasadena garage.

The CoS remains a force, in entertainment, and online, unfortunately--as with this untalented nut, who has taken to writing a sort of stoner operetta featuring a Battlefield Earth-like "libretto" (with some great staging hints--"a million years passes"), and some bad garage band-like rock. Holu McXenu Batman, thorazine on the way. You know you're dealing with an Appliantologist type of crypto-nazi occultist when you're reading something with anthropomorphized stars and planets, and that old saxon "sky" (ascendit ad caelos, as the orison went---or descendit ad infernalis, in McNut's case). Let's not forget many mormons also support the CoS quack cult. Combine Hubbard and Moroni, and voila: All-American psychotic.

this untalented nut

Most amusing.

Yes, but read between the lines, and rather alarming as well. Have you ever read Conan-Doyle's Valley of Fear--a Holmes story, sort of short novella,-- about Masons and Mormons controlling some old west town?? (based on C-D's travels). McNut reminds us of one of the townie mason-miners or something-- .

I've only read one Holmes short story which I remember nearly nothing about, so the Doyle didn't take. That one sounds pretty interesting though.

It's a rather chilling tale. Then, I'd rather read Hound of the Baskervilles than like most trad. lit., or Heinlein for that matter. Many consider C-D a pulp hack ala PBS/mystery BS, but he's not (tho' once the Sherlock Holmes stories took off he did start grinding them out).

His prose and plots were highly crafted. C-D's alter-ego Holmes (though some claim Watson is C-D, really) epitomizes rationality and deductive thinking--schoolkids should read Holmes instead of Harry Potter BS, or the latest pseudo-marxist, Colored Purple dreck.

C-D may not reach to the levels of a Conrad or Freddy Nietzsche, but his tales a bit superior to the usual Anglo potboilers---
