"For the concept of questioning authority to work it has to applied universally. Absolutely without any exception. Otherwise what is the point?"
When one questions the authority of L. Ron Hubbard one thing becomes very readily apparent.
L. Ron Hubbard has no authority.
His claims of being a hero in the Second World War are complete nonsense and completely false. On the occasion Hubbard was mistakenly placed in command of a small warship he showed himself to be completely incompetent. L. Ron Hubbard showed himself to be an incompetent naval officer.
As a writer L. Ron Hubbard was incompetent too.
When L. Ron Hubbard was receiving a penny a word writing for the pulps Ayn Rand was a world class author who had her work published in hardcover and adapted for motion pictures. All of Ayn Rand's work is still in print by the New American Library. Some of L. Ron Hubbard's later literary work is printed by Bridge Publications. Who owns the New American Library? The stockholders. Who owns Bridge Publications? Bridge Publications is a department of Scientology.
