Laurel Canyon and the Birth of the Hippie Generation

In case you have missed this Dave McGowan series at The Center for an Informed America and have some time, I recommend checking it out.

Conspiracy Planet has run the so far 13 parts and they are all at the original source.

It's an entertaining and informative collection of stories about the early days of the LA rock scene, including much about Charlie Manson and the family, from a somewhat conspiratorial viewpoint.

Mr. McGowan also has an interesting series on 9/11 there.
September 11, 2001 Revisited: The Series

"And it seems to me perfectly in the cards that there will be within the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing … a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods."
Aldous Huxley, 1959


  1. That "drug" is already in place and gets consumed by hundreds of millions of Americans each and every day, including babies, with no serious side effects, except apathy, studpidity and a wasting away of the spine.

    That drug is TV and has been addling and addicting American minds since 1947.

    Who needs pharmacological intervention with actual pills when the TV can and is used to brainwash and effectively turn into mush brains by the score?

    All that hoopla about being sure your TV is ready for digital transmission was a bit too much, but our nannies wanted to make sure we still got our daily fix.

    Ask someone about some Congressional legislation and most of the time, you'll get a dull stare.

    But ask them about last night's "Big Game"--and there's always one of them available--and you'll get a rousing response, along with stats and play by play.

    Welcome to the "Brave New World's" SOMA--Television.

  2. Spenglerian Cyclic Model Is What Is Demonstrated; Huxley Refuted
    (Apollonian, 11 Feb 09)

    Let me deliver the simple refutation of Huxley's thesis to u herewith:

    Yes, it's true hubris of people is always used against them, and this hubris ALWAYS arises by means of "PROSPERITY"--Huxley's beginning observation is surely confirmed.

    But note the malignant disability of such hubris grows--as we see in case of USA--while the "prosperity" dissipates. "Prosperity" does NOT just continue to obtain, in contrast to Huxley's gross presumption.

    So the socio-biologic effect is: (a) people, through course of history achieve "prosperity" by means of honesty and hard work. (b) But then they become hubristic, presumptuous, and corrupt--as we see in case of USA, again.

    (c) Then however the hubris of the people is used against them, the people divided up against one another in various manifold ways, the people thus enslaved, and steadily, no matter how gradually, the "prosperity" wanes and dissipates, only oppression and dictatorship left as the hubristic fog eventually clears through folly, travail, and horror of warfare--as we see.

    CONCLUSION: Fallacy of Huxley then is "prosperity" will be retained and maintained--THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE--as we see fm present USA example. Thus civilizations/cultures rise and peak in hubris and "prosperity," yes--but then ALWAYS decline and fail--CYCLICALLY, as brilliantly described in Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West." Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian
