The Secret Life of L. Ron Hubbard

This short documentary for Channel 4 offers a revealing look at the life of founder and “prophet” (or is that “profit”?) of the Scientology cult, Lafayette Ron Hubbard. Good grief, how can anyone in their right mind actually believe that this kook was some kind of messiah rather than just a hack science fiction writer and cynical charlatan? It really beggars belief.
