Since I aim to post more on this subject, I thought I'd take the liberty of opening a new thread on my Narconon series. I published an introduction to the subject a couple of weeks ago: Narconon is a rehabilitation programme for addicts run on a system devised by Scientology's founder, L. Ron Hubbard. Experts say it is based on junk science and potentially lethal. Today, I ran the second in the series: Narconon is a variation on “casualty contact”, a recruitment policy Hubbard developed for Scientology in the 1950s, as internal documents make clear. More will follow, but once I start diving into specific cases, it will take time to assimilate the material. It is intimidatingly complex stuff. But I think what it reveals about how Narconon operates makes it worth the effort. Watch this space... Jonny J.
