Critics of Scientology believe in giving everyone choices and a chance to be creative by writing their own script for their own lives. If an individual's critical thinking skills have not been fully suspended, their self-directed script will be incompatible with Hubbard's story. Therefore, by definition Scientology must vehemently oppose creativity and those who espouse it.
Scientology must oppose anyone they think might prevent them and theirs from enjoying the next sequel in their story. The Scientology story casts both the hero and villain as part of the individual Scientologist. Because of this intense personal involvement/conflict the plot is very riveting and the successes of the hero or heroine that much more critical.
Unfortunately the Scientology story is like a serial where the hero’s accomplishments are short lived. There’s always another villain to slay. Yes, watching the hero slay the supposed villain makes the audience happy. Further, there is the belief that resolving the conflict in the hero’s favor implies a wonderful future for them. This is the bait--- the essence of "love---" in the Scientology trap.
Love in this context implies that the one who loves you is predicting and intending a happy, positive, eternal future for you. This is exactly what Scientology seems to offer but the offer is conditional. This was Hubbard’s plan. To get his love, the adherent must surrender much of their freedoms to his prescribed Scientology script.
Oddly enough, people in the trap are fighting to stay in the trap for as long as it takes to get the bait, or, failing that, as long as it takes to become convinced that getting it is impossible. The Scientologist find what masquerades as love, but what they don’t get is the wonderful future. Instead they get a future of absolute servitude to Scientology. No chance for creativity. Only adherence to the Scientology script.
Critics expose Scientology for what it is--- hate in a pretty package. Some day soon, there will be enough critics of the Smallpox of religions that a vaccine will be developed to inoculate people from Hubbard's evil disease.
