Here is a memo from L. Ron Hubbard’s FBI file. The February 1963 document summarizes information contained in the bureau’s files about the Scientology founder, including contacts Hubbard made with the FBI and the Department of Justice. The memo, an excerpt of which you’ll find below, notes that Hubbard had corresponded on several occasions with federal agents, apprising them of "complaints about his wife and about alleged communists." But it was a lengthy May 1951 letter that was singled out in the FBI memo, surely because the claims in that missive were insane and clearly indicative of Hubbard’s raging lunacy. Read the memo for Hubbard’s delusional claims about an early-morning attack in his apartment and the related coronary thrombosis. Also of interest was the notation:
The April 24, 1951 issue of the "Times Herald," Washington, D.C., revealed that Hubbard’s wife charged in a divorce suit that "competent medical advisors recommended that Hubbard be committed to a private sanitarium for psychiatric observation and treatment of a mental ailment known as paranoid schizophrenia.
In the video of that Scientology doesn’t want you to see Tom Cruise makes a special point that Scientology, and therefore Scientologists, are at war with Psychiatry, and they want it ban for "crimes against humanity," as Tom says in one of the many videos here and here we’ve provided. This reminds me of the paranoia experienced by the real-life character in A Beautiful Mind, played by Russell Crowe.
