THE SOURCE OF THE MANSON MYTH | AND ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

20131028-083257.jpg
When Susan Atkins’ “confession” was sold to the European press, as entertaining blood curdling propaganda, a magazine called Rolling Stone had something to say about its potentiality for “damaging pretrial publicity”.
The money was split between Lawrence Schiller, Paul Caruso (associate and co-conspirator of Atkins’ attorney, Richard Caballero), and Susan Atkins- variously cited as $150,000 and $175,000.
Titled “The Killing of Sharon Tate”, this confession/scam/cover up/book was “authored” by Lawrence Schiller, a shady journalist.
Jerry Cohen, and Dial Torgerson (LA times journalists) helped Schiller quickly rewrite the Atkins confession into what Nikolas Schreck called “journalese” in his book, “The Manson File Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman”. I am actually paraphrasing from a few pages within a section called, “Making a Killing: Sadie’s Story and the Schiller Scam”, from Chapter VII- The Soul For Sale: Manufacture and Marketing of the Manson Myth.
The publisher of “The Killing of Sharon Tate” was New American Library, a subsidiary of the same company that then owned the Los Angeles times. Nikolas writes, “While the ethical improprieties of the Caruso-Shilling-Times deal led to much criticism from the mainstream press, it was only the then-countercultural organ Rolling Stone who correctly perceived what a massive violation of Manson’s legal rights had been engineered.”
‘What possible justification could the Times editors have had in running the confessions? Where were their heads? Can an individual’s right to a fair trial, free of damaging pretrial publicity, be so relative? Can it be compromised so easily by the fictitious right of the public to be entertained? … If Miss Atkins’ confession does not constitute damaging pretrial publicity, what does?
What does the phrase mean? Even if the Times could somehow prove that its confession did Manson absolutely no harm, what right did they have to take the risk? The moral decision must be made before, not after, the fact if a man’s right to an impartial trial is to be taken seriously.’

NIKOLAS SCHRECK | “MY SHIFT FROM DARKNESS”

Roosevelt Hotel Lobby

Roosevelt Hotel Lobby

I had the pleasure of officially meeting Nikolas in December of 2012, after maintaining a long distance relationship since our initial meeting on 08.08.08. via telephone communication
(Charles thought he and I should meet, and so he gave me his phone number while I was visiting him in the hole, 2008).
A prior post here-
ATWA– an excerpt about “ATWA” and it’s inception prior to the terms “deep ecology” and “revolutionary environmentalism” (and prior to “Earth First!“), from Nikolas Schreck’s huge contribution debunking the “myth” of Charles Manson, “The Manson File – Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman”– provides much needed insight into one of the many pieces of the whole, that is Charles Manson. Truths that hitherto had been mostly non-existent to not only myself, but to the public at large, Nikolas has illuminated through many years of insight. This work that Nikolas has shared with the world is a clear light- a warm wind which counters the cold winds of this dark age.

I hold the highest Regard and Respect for Nikolas, his teachings, his work, and his spiritual evolution over the years (Zeena’s as well).
I consider him a brother, comrade, and teacher.

And so, For All Beings, I wanted to share “Mehr Licht” (More Light) with a couple excerpts from Nikolas’ latest interview for the occult magazine, “Secret Knowledge”, with Nik’s permission of course.
“MY SHIFT FROM DARKNESS”: AN INTERVIEW WITH NIKOLAS SCHRECK,
BY GUS BRESLAUER
Excerpts used with permission from Nikolas Schreck
“Secret Knowledge” Vol. I

When asked how Nikolas feels “about the Westernization of Buddhism in our modern society”,
he answers, in part-
“…In the largely secular, materialist, individualist, “rationalist” West, Buddhist teachers have to start from scratch, teaching Westerners the ABC’s of what spirituality is, which wastes a lot of time and energy. And in order to appeal to minds programmed to believe that only what can be scientifically proven is valid, much of the magical supernatural aspect of Tantric Buddhism is downplayed in the West. Another thing that bugs me about Western Buddhism is how it caters almost exclusively to the privileged, spoiled and well-educated elite who can afford the time and money required to take a nice little spiritual vacation by attending the teachings held at ornate dharma centers in a comfortable atmosphere of snobbish self-congratulation. I’d like to see a more socially engaged and classless Buddhism made accessible to the street, to the disadvantaged and despised, to prisoners, the homeless, the terminally ill, where the antidote the Dharma offers is desperately needed. There are 84,000 Buddhist teachings for all types of temperament and lifestyle, but it seems to me that sort of approach would be more in keeping with the wild yogic Mahasiddhas who were the founders and masters of Tantric Buddhism in India and Tibet. If Tantric Buddhism in the West really seeks to free all sentient beings from suffering, it has to develop the skillful means to speak to areas of society it currently ignores. Another factor is that this is the Kali Yuga, the cyclical phase of spiritual degeneracy. The Buddha predicted that in the Kali Yuga, the Dharma would become increasingly less comprehensible to humans until it died out altogether for many thousands of years. It may be that the West’s embrace of egoic individualism, hypercapitalist materialism, non-stop digital entertainment via information overload, and atheist reductionism has sped up the Kali Yugic tendencies to such a toxic degree that only a very few can even truly grasp the Buddhist teaching at all, let alone practice it…”

When asked about Nikolas’ spiritual evolution, and whether his political stance has had a similar evolution, Nikolas answers, in part-
“… To the minimal degree that my political stance was ever understood by the public at large, yes, of course, that’s evolved over the years too. I’m still a monarchist who believes rulership must be guided by divine and spiritual authority rather than corporate-sponsored election by a mob or a dictatorship of the proletariat. But I no longer believe any kind of political system can address the deeper spiritual dilemma facing humanity. All efforts should be directed to ultimate liberation by spiritual practice rather than the futile Samsaric ups and downs of politics. What some mistakenly interpret as a mundane and political agenda on my part was actually an intrinsic facet of my spiritual quest in my exploration of how to change human behavior through magic. You mentioned the counterculture and that’s a good key to this quandary. My understanding that a truly comprehensive politics must be informed by a spiritual perspective, and isn’t simply a pragmatic matter of economics and social policy, comes from my upbringing in the late 60s and early 70s counter-culture. Back then, it was a common utopian belief in radical factions that a total revolution on every level was imminent, and that the entire social, spiritual, sexual framework of human existence would be drastically transformed by mass insurrection against the prevailing establishment values. I expected to be on the front lines of that civil war that unfortunately never happened. If you weren’t there, you can’t imagine how intensely this expectation of revolution was in the air. That revolutionary ideal was imbued with the 1960s magical revival and the sudden awareness of mystical experience mass use of psychedelics revealed. The best example of this magical politics was the ritual banishing and exorcism a collective of pacifist radicals performed on the Pentagon in October 1967. When Squeaky Fromme was accused of trying to assassinate President Ford in 1975, I thought, “Oh, good, here’s that revolution I’d been waiting for.” Now, I know you were expecting me to get into Hitler, not hippies, but there’s a strong similarity between the 1960s American counter-culture revolt against “The Establishment”, and the 1930s German counter-culture rebellion against what was called “The System”. They were both concerned with changing humanity at the root, making a new world, a sharp break with politics as usual, and they were both greatly focused on pioneering radical ecology and getting back to nature and the soil. And more importantly, they were both informed by magical, pagan, and spiritual ideals that few other political movements have ever been concerned with. What interested me about the history of the Third Reich wasn’t the political aspects, but the fact that several National Socialist leader’s planned to bring about a new religion in Europe once the war was won. While in Germany to research my first book in 1983, a study of Nazi occultism which I ultimately decided not to publish, I investigated this subject exhaustively…”

ATWA / MANSON PRESS

you invented the words
“They’re gonna rip you off in every way you can think of because you
didn’t give your own children
the benefit of the courtroom that your fathers fought in battles and died for…”

Craig (Gray Wolf) was arrested Sunday morning, March 24th for allegedly having a cell phone with him on his way in to visit Charles.
The media is already taking off with the bugliosian script, the helter skelter narrative that brought fame, and quite a bit of money, to bugliosi and many others: “mastermind” behind the murders…, “mass-murderer”…, “ordered the ritualistic murders of Sharon Tate and six other people in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969.”, “orchestrating a series of gruesome murders”…
Forty+ years ago this same media aided and abetted in the death sentence which was imposed upon Charles Manson by a corrupt court.
For this man, who spoke and behaved throughout the trial without fear of the order, this same media would not report how “our” bill of rights (fifth, sixth, and fourteenth amendments) were deprived him… Never spoke out about the cause for mistrial with Nixon’s “Manson’s Guilty” statement, they happily published it, front page, and reaped in the quarters.

Labeling Craig a “follower”, and others as “believers” of Manson’s, etc, etc.
In 40 years they rarely ever mention the name, Tex Watson.
As Charles says, his fathers died in the wars so that he would be given these inalienable rights. What did all of the men die for, if not this? What is the “united states”, then?
The biggest lie.

From the LA Times
A follower of Charles Manson has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle a cellphone to the cult leader at Corcoran State Prison
Craig Carlisle Hammond, 63, was arrested Sunday on charges of possession of an illegal communication device, attempting to bring a cellphone into a prison and conspiracy, said Terry Thornton, a California Department of Corrections and Rehabiltation spokeswoman.
Hammond, a retiree, was searched and subsequently arrested at 3:35 p.m. and taken to a King County Jail, where he was released four hours later on $30,000. He is due in court next month.
Thornton said the device was a wrist watch cellphone and was discovered by guards after Hammond entered an area where he possession of such devices is prohibited.
Hammond, who goes by the name Gray Wolf given to him by Manson, is a regular visitor to Manson, the mastermind of the one the most notorious killing sprees in U.S. history — the Tate-Bianca murders in Los Angeles.
Manson has been caught with a cellphone in his cell twice. Manson called people in California, New Jersey and Florida with an LG flip phone found under his prison bunk in March 2009. For the offense, 30 days were added to his sentence. The cult leader was again found with a cellphone in his cell Jan. 6, 2011.
That fall, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a Senate bill that makes it a misdemeanor to possess an unauthorized cellphone in prison or to try to take one into a prison. Violators face up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.
The proliferation of cellphones in prisons is a significant public safety concern, officials say. Inmates have run street gangs from behind bars, intimidated witnesses and orchestrated assaults on guards, they said. In 2011, 15,000 cellphones were found inside prisons.
Manson, 78, is technically eligible for parole but will almost certainly die in prison for ordering the ritualistic murders of Sharon Tate and six other people in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969.
Manson sees few visitors, but Hammond is among his regulars. Hammond controls a copyright on Manson’s music and is a self-described follower of the the inmate.
A Manson website maintained by followers and believers of Manson’s ATWA group –an acronym for Air, Trees, Water, Animals — reported that Gray Wolf was detained at Level 4 visitation entrance. According to the website, Manson was meeting with another friend when Gray Wolf was detained by guards. Manson and the two visitors were subsequently searched and the two visitors also consented to their vehicles being searched. Gray Wolf was then taken into custody and asked for a lawyer, according to the website.
