I put up a blog post several months ago about Scientology being all right with me. After all, it teaches some people to live up to their potential. Some of the most actualized, fulfilled, charismatic, and successful people in our society are part of it. There’s a fascinating Time magazine article titled “The Thriving Cult of Greed and Power” from 1991 that speaks for itself. The conclusion I’m drawing is that the doctrines have the potential to be helpful, but the way they are guarded, bought, and sold, has hurt a lot of people along the way.
