Not in the context of Trump I haven’t. I doubt his followers have either.

I found this on wiki

quote:
During the 1970s Hubbard's followers engaged in a program of criminal infiltration of the U.S. government, resulting in several executives of the organization being convicted and imprisoned for multiple offenses by a U.S. Federal Court.[24][25][26] In 1992, a court in Canada convicted the Scientology Church in Toronto of spying on law enforcement and government agencies, and criminal breach of trust, later upheld by the Ontario Court of Appeal.[27][28] The Church of Scientology was convicted of fraud by a French court in 2009, a decision upheld by the supreme Court of Cassation in 2013.[29]

The Church of Scientology has been described by government inquiries, international parliamentary bodies, scholars, law lords, and numerous superior court judgements as both a dangerous cult and a manipulative profit-making business.[36]


So, maybe they are more connected in purpose than I might have thought.

I’ve heard of him, but he’s a scammer as far as I’m concern.

Seems some current Sci Fi readers agree with you! The newer publication has added pages. But the complaints seem to be about the literary things like character development, and story line.

One person complained that sci fi by definition touches on science and this tome did not. Another said the religion part could be ignored but not the rest.

This is how I think of him too: Scientology. Big time scammer.

As far as you are concerned.

I am not defending him, but how much research have you actually factually carried out on him?

Whatever his mental issues, Hubbard had a lot going for him. Many a country mile ahead of any "scammer".

I doubt John W. Campbell JR was a mug.

I don't believe I've ever watched Crocodile Dundee, except for excerpts from a promotion or commercial. Is there a famous line?

Ssh, HB. Crocodile Dundee is Australia's idea of high concept.
