Flashback: Mitt Romney Loves L. Ron Hubbard

Published

on

A U.S. Senate Candidate from Utah revealed a curious fact on the presidential campaign trail in 2012.

“Actually, the one by L. Ron Hubbard,” Mitt Romney responded when asked about his favorite novel. “I’m not in favor of his religion by any means but he wrote a book called ‘Battlefield Earth’ that was a very fun science fiction book.”

Hubbard was the founder the of the Church of Scientology. He holds the Guinness World Record for most published works by one author. Much of his fictional writing, including “Battlefield Earth,” influenced the doctrines of Scientology. In fact, the book was rendered into a horrible movie in which John Travolta, perhaps the most famous Scientologist, played the lead role.

Some themes from Scientology run parallel with “Battlefield Earth.”

For example, one group in the book uses electroshock therapy in order to maintain control. Hubbard frequently claimed that psychiatrists were wrong for labelling electroshock therapy ineffective, and claimed in Scientology that they did so in order to maintain control.

One supporting character in the book is described as having been shaped by the views of his mother. His mother was a member of a resistance group, referred to as a “church,” and much like the Church of Scientology, it opposed psychiatry.

Romney is a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, better known as Mormons.
