Robert Heinlein was a lot smarter and a much better writer than Hubbard. he was also very prescient about predicting the future of society as we now know it and see it.
I enjoy reading his work.
Hollywood took his novel “Starship Troopers” and destroyed the original storyline. Terrible movie for that reason alone.

I had heard once that it was a bar bet between Heinlein and Hubbard: L Ron said he could start a religion out of nothing.

Always wondered if true.

I love that movie! It’s a satire. Director Paul Verhoeven specialized in that sort of thing (Robocop, Total Recall)

Strangely I liked both the book and the movie.
