    Charles Manson is dead.

    Charles Manson is dead. And no, you should not care.
    Let's all pretend we care, and play to cliche of mental illness that Manson was some kind of hero. He wasn't. He wasn't a genius, and he wasn't a visionary. He was a paranoid schizophrenic with delusions of grandeur who became a cult leader.
    Nothing less. Nothing more. He was a child who had a horrible upbringing, and had mental illness. He became a manipulative and abusive person, and died as such.
    If you find a mentally ill person who captivated mentally ill drug addicts who were impressionable and young a hero or revolutionary? Then you are a moron, and trying to cling to notoriety and counterculture, because you have failed at academics and society as a whole.
    Charles Manson was never a mastermind cult leader. He was a feeble opportunist, who prayed on a drug addled common denominator. And he died a failure.

    Crazy that he died, just on the news I heard that Quentin Tarantino will be doing a Movie on the Manson murders set in 1969.

    Re: Charles Manson is dead.

    I said in another site that despite him being a horrible person, he could almost be single-handily responsible for a lot of lives ruined including: Sharon Tate, Dennis Wilson, and damn near everybody that was involved in his "family".

    Manson had a bad upbringing that he allowed to consume him, and on one hand, what he did was beyond reproach, no doubt, but to say there shouldn't be any reason not to care about what happened to Manson is wrong. We need to care about what happened to Manson's life and why he did the things he did. We need to care and to understand so it wouldn't/won't happen again. The real question is was his mental illness because of his upbringing or was it simply a coincidental matter separate from that?

    With that said, I do not feel sorry for him whatsoever. He committed some horrific crimes and got what he deserved.

    Completely agree. I've always considered him and the events surrounding his "family" fascinating. What drove him to become such a person? What inspired his followers to believe him? Understanding these sorts of things can help prevent or lessen the likelihood of such occurrences in the future. I couldn't even guess how many times I've gone down Wikipedia rabbit holes thanks to Manson or people like him.

    Re: Charles Manson is dead.

    Very few crimes encapsulate a period of time and a social movement as much as the Manson killings. They became part of popular culture in large part because of that.

    Keep seeing people saying on Twitter and the like that he shouldn't be glorified or idolized or anything else. While I completely agree with that, I'm also not actually seeing anyone doing that. Maybe its just down to who I follow. That people would wax poetic about Charlie Manson is rather disgusting. But that's where we are at.

    Re: Charles Manson is dead.

    Saw reports that Tom Cruise might be in Tarantino's film about Manson which ordinarily would be a bummer for me but the idea of that sawed off little cult goober playing another sawed off little cult goober is amusing.

    I heard he tried marijuana just once and then had his ribs removed so he can suck his own dick. Rock music is wild, man.

    I have no sympathy for Manson's death. The man's pure evil around anyone that surrounds him.

    Re: Charles Manson is dead.

    A few things....

    I live in Porterville.

    Did like his music.

    My younger bro works at the Corcoran prison, has talked with Manson. It was...."he gives the impression he'd just as soon poke out your eye"
