But what I really am dying to know is what secrets did Hubbard learn from Parsons that made his Dianetics and Scientology so successful despite it being the most ridiculous religion on earth of its size. He left $600,000,000 upon death and was once quoted as saying "... If a man really wants to make a million dollars, he should start his own religion".
Scientology is loaded, billions, lots of valuable real estate, celebrity endorsement, and cash. And secrets, even if a whole lot has been exposed. L.Ron learned something from Jack that aided his unexplainable success somehow, someway. He was a natural con artist and liar, and he could now add charlatan to his resume. I am confident his getting Jack to reveal secrets he swore not to was what gave Hubbard his crazy ideas and the reason for its success.
What were they?
some of my most ominous predictions have been all too grimly fulfilled. Public employees have been subjected to the ignominy and indignity of "loyalty" oaths and "loyalty purges." Members of the United States Senate, moving under the cloak of "immunity" and the excuse of "emergency," have made a joke of justice and a mockery of privacy. Constitutional immunity and legal procedure have been consistently violated, and that which once, not so long ago, would have been a universal outrage in America, is today refused even a review by the Supreme Court.
The golden voice of social security, of socialized this and socialized that, with its attendant confiscatory taxation and intrusion on individual liberty, is everywhere raised and everywhere heeded.

I'm looking to do a music video for my band's song "Slip" about Jack Parsons creating a portal through the Babalon Working using Public Domain Videos can anyone help with some ideas?
To occult artist Brian Butler, aesthetics are "magick." Elevating mystic practices to the status of art—or elevating art to the status of ritual—Butler's films and performances are themselves Orphic ceremonies and Satanic rites. Pentagrams, triangles, liturgical hoods in red, white, and black, these iconographic shapes and costumes have a sacred as well as aesthetic function. The arresting imagery and trance-inducing editing of his latest short film are no exception. Butler's mentor and collaborator Kenneth Anger once compared making a movie to casting a spell. Perhaps this film will make that assertion literal: "The Babalon Working" was a ritual devised and practiced by occult master Jack Parsons to manifest Babalon, the divine feminine. Watch and wait.
