Malignant narcissism, L. Ron Hubbard, and Scientology's policies of narcissistic rage
Type: Research
Author(s): Stephen A. Kent, Jodi M. Lane
In this article, we argue that Scientology’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard, likely presented a personality disorder known as malignant narcissism, and then we establish that this disorder probably contributed to his creation of organizational policies against perceived enemies that reflected his narcissistic rage. We illustrate our argument by discussing Hubbard’s creation of an internal Scientology organization called the Guardian’s Office, which carried out a sustained and covert attack against a Scientology critic, Paulette Cooper. This attack, and the Scientology policies that ...

BY his own admission, Lafayette Ron Hubbard, whose impenetrably obscure writings about thetans would evolve over a half-century into the multi-billon-dollar celebrity-speckled commercial business known as the Church of Scientology, was mad. "There is an interview I have where they ask Ron Hubbard, 'Are you mad?', and he says: 'Yes, I am,"' says Raphael Aron, director of Australia's Cult Counselling Centre. "He saw his madness as a quality and as thinking outside the square." In 1999, when Aron wrote Cults: Too ...

Finally, as her mental health worsened three weeks ago, they crumbled and let her take anti-psychotic drugs she had been prescribed. But it was too late.
