L. Ron Hubbard's Forgotten Scientology Teachings

scientologyAlan Scherstuhl, writing for the Village Voice, found an old Scientology paperback published by L. Ron Hubbard that contains some chapters that were scrapped after Hubbard's death.

For instance, in the 1965 book Scientology: A New Slant on Life, Hubbard revealed his views about women in a chapter called "A Woman's Creativity," which Scherstuhl scanned and placed online for everyone to read.  Among other things, Hubbard wrote:

A society in which women are taught anything but the management of a family, the care of men, and the creation of the future generation is a society which is on its way out.

Hubbard goes on to say,

Men are difficult and troublesome creatures — but valuable.  The creative  care and handling of men is an artful and beautiful task.  Those who would cheat a woman of her rightful place, by making them into men, should at last realize that, by this action, they are destroying, not only women, but the men and the children as well.
