i'm not telling anybody which tone they should take when they write, but, I found these perspective-ideas to be extremely stimulating. it seems to me, however, that the motive behind some of these instructions, may not be all that good for the rest of us, that are not taking these actions, using these theoretical formulations. For instance, to get better at anything, one needs to practice, and if you are learning to manage human beings, the materials for your practice are everywhere. But this is equally true for the practice of psychology.....this was a few years ago, back before the downtown tunnel kicked the buses out. I was waiting for a bus to Bellevue, and one of the other buses went by, and right before my eyes on the side of it, was a poster which said, 'YOU ARE IN A PSYCHOLOGICAL EXPERIMENT, BEING CONDUCTED BY STUDENTS OF U OF W.' What a cute joke, I thought at first, but then, you never know, do you? Can you? Can one? Who am I going to trust, to tell me what is going on, if fake news is being spread about me, simply because somebody doesn't like that I don't conform to their currently popular ideology? and that dislike turns into hatred which then spreads like a virus amongst the technologically savvy (which, these days, is just about everyone, especially the young)? L Ron Hubbard strikes me as someone who might have ( had he known me) disliked me for being me. He has enabled, through his books, others to take active steps against my existence (and, maybe, some day, yours).///I have often thought this book is a clearing sort of book, but the morality is lacking, as it lacks a Supreme Being. L Ron is not that. John Travolta, Tom Cruise, and other Hollywood members of their 'church' are not that. By the way, how can you be regarded as a religion if there is no Higher Being, at the center of it? But I still encourage the reading of this particular one of his works, as I do think it can be 'clearing.' But keep in mind that the word 'clearing' is also used in conjunction with denuding the forest of its trees. So, I give a cautious thumbs up, to this one. Be cautious , also , of what you speak, when you travel on public transportation. each bus used to feature an announcement which stated 'you are being audibly recorded.' just because the sign has been discontinued does not mean the practice has.

Don't feed the Cult of $cientology. Instead, read the books by the former members- their books are more informitive about the realities of this awful cult
