For some reason I've ended up listening to a whole bunch of stuff relating to this guys story. He seems to me to be, among many other things, one of the first human hating green warriors. He justified quite a bit on what are now common green themes. I'm wondering about the pathology... for some reason. I dunno, my mind wanders.

read a book of conspiracies a while ago. one chapter was on manson. said that he was not really a cult leader as much as he lead a criminal gang. dealt drugs to hollywood elites. knew many and that accounts for that sleazy town's panic when the murders happened. was a very convincing read. also, was not a bad musician.

I am no fan of Manson, but Helter Skelter was a good book, and he was part of pop culture in the 70s.

Watching the video in the OP, it is easy to see how compelling and influential a "leader" he was.
