Scientology thoroughly poisons its adherents, but has been widely labeled as poison. Randian 'Objectivism' is poison, too, but it is somewhat milder and doesn't have the same warning labels. If I had to wish one on an innocent stranger, it would (reluctantly) be Objectivism, since it is easier to recover from.
