Hippies and the war machine
« on: August 27, 2016, 10:25:49 pm »

A few days ago I came across an interesting article posted over at LRC. Turns out, it's a 21 part series written by David McGowan, first written in 2008 and wrapped up in 2014. He titles it, "Inside the LC: The Strage But Mostly True Story of Laurel Canyon and the Birth of the Hippie Generation."

Though this series involves the music industry it's not really about music per se thus I didn't post this over in the music section. I'm sure most are familiar with the drug/alcohol abuse, the sexual depravity, and the occult underpinnings in the industry. But, what surprised and intrigued me enough to want to read the entire series was the military connection -at least in the Laurel Canyon sphere.

I liked McGowan's writing style, his presentation and he duly notes his own speculation and clearly states his own opinion so it doesn't muddy the facts. As the series progresses it does get rather vile in places as he covers some of the actions of the players so reader be ye forewarned. Despite the creepiness, I thought the series was post worthy as it does lend itself to the Mind War battle. Of course, it's also another reminder of, "Well, crap! What isn't contrived or quickly taken over by TPTB?!"

Mr. McGowan has also written some other interesting articles (and his books can be found on Amazon) so I am linking to his archived pieces for your perusal.

Happy reading!
