The crimes of the Manson family resulted in one of the most famous murder trials in history, but new research has come to light that could totally change the history of the case.

Much of what was believed to be true about the Manson murders and the cult that carried them out comes from a narrative that was spun by prosecutor Vince Bugliosi, both during the trial and in his book Helter Skelter"the best selling true crime novel of all time.

Nothing about the murders made any sense. There was a strange cult of hippies that were killing celebrities for apparently no reason, and the young people carrying out the crimes seemed to be under the spell of a charismatic lunatic and failed musician named Charles Manson. Bugliosi created a narrative that Manson and his followers had no personal motive in the killings, but were attempting to instigate a race war by framing the Black Panthers for the crimes.

However, in the years since, many researchers have had trouble making sense of the story that was established by Bugliosi. Manson was certainly a racist and problematic in a variety of other ways, but there is ample evidence that the story we have come to accept about the cult and their crimes is a total fabrication.

This makes a LOT of sense. It answers a lot. The Unabomber was also Mk-Ultra.

(Mk stands for "Mind kontrol", the German spelling because it came from Sunset Nazi scientists).

Fake news.

Charlie wanted to kill Terry Melcher and Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys for ghosting him. He had musician Gary Hinman killed for not joining his "band", or maybe it was the bad acid Gary sold to Bobby whatever-his-name-was (Beusilani?) for the motorcycle gang. The LaBianca murders were just to muddy the waters.

Its a good rabbit hole to go down. years of entertainment.

Manson would be the last individual on the planet I would trust to do anything. He was a pimp, basically, and he used drugs to control and manipulate his "family".
Sorry, because the CIA used LSD in one of their ill advised experiments, does not mean that they controlled the entire supply. There was plenty to go around.

#4 And that's why he was perfect. LSD was everywhere back during MK-Utra. Where is it now? Are you going to tell me Centac-21 took down every cook in America? They probably wrote that book. Why hasn't it come back? Forty years ago you buy a sheet of 100 hits of Flying Eyeball for maybe $150. Today, nothing. Everyone would rather do meth, right?

#5 | Posted by HeliumRat Because the primary precursor is no longer available. Lysergic acid diethylamide requires a component that rarely occurs naturally and is almost impossible to fabricate out side a large lab. It's easier to get registered to receive narcotics than to get that stuff. Lysergic acid is exceptionally poisonous, and is dangerous to handle. There is little use for it outside a lab for it except to make LSD.

#6 So, you work for the CIA.

Look, any jerk like me who took Chem-2 in high school could do it. Hell Material Science might make it possible.

See twitter for the instructions.

Ok, go and get some Ergot, best source of natural Lysergic acid. Maybe get a couple of pounds of some sorts of morning glory seed, there is a reason LSD is not popular any more. Difficult to make, fragile, degrades easily and there are many ways to make an illegal buck that isn't as difficult.
