Home Testing Practices
It might be asked in this modern age why psychoanalysis never permitted itself to be before and after tested. This is probably the greatest condemnation of the entire subject of psychoanalysis.
—L. Ron Hubbard
Hubbard's pronouncements that psychoanalysis never permitted itself to be tested and that this is the greatest condemnation of the entire subject is a wonderful Freudian rip of his own subjects of Dianetics and Scientology, because Hubbard never permitted either of them to be tested. The Scientology cult, in the more than forty-eight years since Hubbard issued this attack on psychoanalysis, has never permitted its subject or any of its claims or claimed successes to be tested. Thus Hubbard and every Scientologist condemn the entire subject of Scientology.
Hubbard's and Scientologists' only response to people who have sought to test the subjects of Dianetics and Scientology and these subjects' claims has been to attack and seek to destroy such people. Scientologists have thus doubly condemned themselves, first with their refusal to submit their subject and claims to testing, and second with their violent, fair game attacks on the good people who question their subjects and claims. The easily testable truth is that Hubbard was a pathological liar and a vicious misanthrope, that his claims for the results of Dianetics and Scientology are fraudulent, and that the cult he founded, which still promotes his fraudulent claims and still practices and enforces his vicious misanthropy, is paranoid, schizophrenic and criminal.
