Life is a Game
A fundamental part of Hubbard's philosophy is that Life is a game, and that human beings are either players, pieces, or broken pieces if we are playing at all.
Without our primordial attachments to others, what would we be?
Evidently, we would be the players of a game, one that resembled a giant chess match, with our fellow human beings as the rooks, the knights, and the pawns. For this is the essence of sociopathic behavior and desire. The only thing [the sociopath] really wants—the only thing left—is to win.
