    On November 19th, 2017, the infamous Manson family cult leader Charles Manson died at the age of 83. While discussing the Manson Family provokes flashbacks to the gruesome murders in August 1969 by Manson’s followers, very few people examine the backstory which leads to these types of tragedies. You cannot understand Charles Manson as an adult without understanding what happened to him in his childhood. What is the truth about Charles Manson?

    The Manson murders — the seven killings committed by Charles Manson’s followers in two days in Los Angeles in August 1969 — are often thought to mark the end of the 1960s, as if those brutal slayings were the inevitable outgrowth of the counterculture, the dark consequence of long hair, free love, casual drug use and a general breakdown of authority and social norms. This sentiment was most famously expressed by Joan Didion in her book “The White Album.” She wrote that “in a sense” it was true that “the Sixties ended abruptly on August 9, 1969, ended at the...

Coppedge Charles Manson Was an Evolutionist Few Darwinians would condone murder, of course, but the Manson case shows what can happen to someone who puts their faith in the teachings of Darwin and his disciples. Well, after 45 years in prison for the heinous murders he instigated, Charles Manson has finally met his Maker. Many in the public have held a kind of horrified fascination for the cult hero whose “Manson family” shocked the world in 1969 with some of the bloodiest, cruelist, most senseless murders known up to that time. How many who...

    Let’s not forget Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, and the Four-Finger Salute. Most articles on the death of madman Charles Manson opened by mentioning his role in the diabolical Tate-LaBianca murders. The AP story started this way: Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison.… The Manson Family, as his followers were called, slaughtered five of its victims on Aug. 9, 1969, at Tate’s home:...

    Newsweek continues to embarrass the legacy of the once-reputable publication with anti-Trump hit pieces on a regular basis, but a recent story titled, “How murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump used language to gain followers,” takes things to a dark new level. The left-leaning publication literally compared a convicted mass murderer and cult leader to the President of the United States. Former President of the American Psychoanalytic Association Mark Smaller told Newsweek that part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. “A charismatic leader knows how to speak to people in a way that will emotionally...

    The death of cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson resurfaces tales from his twisted family’s killing spree after nearly four decades. Manson orchestrated the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent people in the 1960s according to historical reports, which leave many wondering how he convinced followers, made up of a former Sunday school teacher, a church choir singer and a one-time homecoming princess, into committing such brutal acts. According to psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. Notably, Manson was...

    Debra Tate says she's more concerned about Manson's imprisoned followers than she ever was about the cult leaderDebra Tate got the call from Corcoran State Prison around 8:30 p.m. Sunday -- the man who ordered the killing of her sister was dead. It wasn't a surprise. She'd been expecting it for at least a week after hearing about Charles Manson's poor health. But it still took some time for her to process her feelings. After the phone call Sunday night, Tate said she prayed. "I said a prayer for his passing, and I thought about it for a moment," Tate...

SNIP “He’s taken the weight of the world on his shoulders, and he doesn’t think it’d be in my best interest to take on his name and be involved with him,” Freeman explained at the time. SNIP

    Born Charles Milles Maddox on Nov. 12, 1934, in Cincinnati, Ohio, Manson – who took his uncle’s last name – was in and out of reform schools and prison beginning at the age of 12. In 1967, Manson moved to San Francisco, where he began to attract a devoted group of followers, including some who would later carry out a string of savage killings known as the Tate/LaBianca murders. Over the course of two nights, the killers took the lives of seven people, inflicting 169 stab wounds and seven .22-caliber gunshot wounds. On June 16, 1970, Charles Manson and three...

Manson died at Bakersfield hospital in California, Tate's sister Debra told TMZ after receiving a call from the prison where Manson was located.

    Mass murderer Charles Manson remained alive Friday, authorities said, but details of the illness that brought him to a Bakersfield hospital remain unclear. Vicky Waters, a spokeswoman with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said only that Manson was still living and that the department could not provide any further details. Kern County Sheriff’s Lt. Bill Smallwood told The Times earlier this week that Manson was at a local hospital. In January, Manson, 83, was rushed to Mercy Hospital in Bakersfield for what authorities at the time would describe only as a serious medical problem. He was returned to...

A former homecoming queen from Monrovia, she did not join in the Aug. 9, 1969, murders of Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of film director Roman Polanski, and four others at the Benedict Canyon home that Tate was renting.

    The game out at the Spahn Ranch was called 'Getting Scared'. It consisted of sexually degrading every single Family member, without exception. The breakdown in minimal human dignity was prerequisite to autonomic acts of brutal homicide, including Sharon Tate's child, Paul Richard Polanski. Find a Grave: Paul Richard Polanski Fast-forward nearly 50 years. The unimaginable murder of Paul has been repeated 60 million times in America alone. Those who have unknowingly subjected themselves to Charlie's 'Get Scared' game, systematically subjecting themselves to every imaginable form of sexual degradation to break down their own human inhibitions, have organized politically.
