"The reader is left to decide for himself why sane and intelligent people subscribe to the theories of Scientology and accept its status as a church; to decide what the real aims and objectives of the Scientologists are; and to judge the propriety of their methods, propoganda and purposes in attempting to gain a majority voice in the council of the National Association for Mental Health. The Scientologists have expressed their views frequently and publicly---now it is for the members of the public 'to believe what you like.'" Scientology claims psychiatry is a scam.
