Péter Bonyai is a name that should be familiar to readers of the Bunker. He’s been a correspondent for us in Hungary, and we’ve covered his own book about his experience in Scientology. For some time now he’s been telling us about a new book by a woman named Diana Dudas that has made []

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard on nuclear radiation: It’s a state of mind

[Hubbard, circa 1957]

We were really knocked out by HBO’s miniseries, ‘Chernobyl,’ and so we thought it might be appropriate for our ‘Scientology Lit’ series if we take a look at L. Ron Hubbard’s notorious 1957 book, ‘All About Radiation.’ Referring to himself as a ‘nuclear physicist’ (he actually failed a course in ‘molecular and atomic []

[The USS Edsall, sunk in 1942]

For our ‘Scientology Lit’ series this week, we’re posting another excerpt from Chris Owen’s monumental updated ‘Ron the War Hero,’ which was released a couple of weeks ago. We asked, and Chris generously agreed to give us another peek inside this very important []

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard on family and sex: As enlightened as you’d imagine

[Hubbard in 1950]

Earlier this week, Sunny Pereira mentioned that Brad Pitt took a Scientology course that would have involved reading part of L.
