Mar 21, Leif rated it it was amazing. Great read Although the title suggests an unnerving, almost sinister plot, the author's pragmatic use of detail and effortless blend of post-modern colloquialism brings a rather homey, sympathetic view of alien domination to the reader.

Hubbard has a big problem with psychiatrists 31 March When we are dealing with a series of ten novels, particularly a series that was read so long ago, the entire series seems to morph into a single book that I can vaguely remember. Some people seemed to have liked these books but most of the readers that have commented on them have indicated otherwise.

I have never really been a big fan of such long running series, though the only other one I read was The Wheel of Time, which I gave up on once I reached the seventh book. However, unlike Robert Jordan, it seems that Hubbard had originally set out to write ten books in his series whereas Jordan had an idea but the idea did not seem to be all that well constructed which resulted in his series becoming bogged down in detail, and then he died.
I won't go too far into discussing such problems here but I would like discuss psychology and the professions in general.
I say that because Hubbard does have some serious problems with psychology, psychiatry, and marketing. I will leave marketing for now as there is a lot to be said about this discipline, but I will suggest that I can see the connection, despite me believing that the connection is a little tenuous. The problem I think is that there is a belief that these three particular professions are manipulative and work to make us become confirmed to society: Psychology through behavioural training and psychiatry through the use of drugs.
Granted, these two professions seek to assist people integrate into society, and this, in a way, is not a bad thing. If you find yourself before a psychiatrist there is usually some reason, but I do have a little more concerns with this medical profession since there is the use of mind-altering drugs, and having been down that road in the past through the use of recreational pharmaceuticals I do have concerns with regards to psychiatry's extensive use of drugs.
There is still an awful lot that we do not know about the human mind and in a way while using psychiatric drugs which covers a whole different gamut of drugs is a lot better than simply shocking people or cutting out parts of their brain, I still feel that we don't really understand to consequences of these actions. It seems to be a process of clouding the brain and the mind so that one can feel good about themselves.
MDMA does that by releasing serotonin to give the user oh, MDMA is an illegal drug, commonly known as ecstasy not only a high, but makes them feel really happy and very confident. Unfortunately the crash can be substantially worse and people have committed suicide during the crash, though most users become incredibly moody. The psychotropic drugs tend to be a lot less potent, but once again generally requires regular consumption for them to work. Psychology is a different story because it is not a medical discipline, it is an allied health discipline meaning you do not need a medical degree to practice, though these days in Australia you are highly unlikely to get a job as a psychologist without a master's degree.
The whole purpose and you have probably seen images of people lying on a couch spouting their problems to the psychologist is for the psychologist to help you work through your concerns and help to train the way you think so as to banish the bad thoughts and focus on the good. Now it is not about being too optimistic, we must be realistic, but we cannot be too pessimistic either. In many cases it depends on the capability of the psychologist as their whole purpose is to never see you again.
If you get to the point where you walk out the door and sign off, and then go and live a full and productive life, then the psychologist has succeeded. They generally give you encouragement, support, help you overcome your own mental barriers, and assist you in building up a sense of self confidence.

It is dangerous because when we realise that we have control over our lives, others who attempt to interpose themselves into our lives will begin to have problems manipulating us to their will.
One of the most common tactics that is used is the doctrine of sin.
I believe that as humans we have been corrupted and live selfish and destructive lives. We care little about others and only seek to do that which benefits ourselves. In short we have rejected God, but, God has intervened in this universe and though an atoning sacrifice, has freed us from guilt and cleansed us of our sins.
We stand before God perfect and righteous, however that does not mean that we go on sinning, by no means, because what is the point of having a shower when we are only going to throw ourselves back into the mud. However, once we understand the grace of God, the power that sin has over us is broken.
