Mastermind? no, clearly not. Crazy acid filled, mentally disturbed man, yes! And honestly, the "plot" isn't much of a work of art either. His
plan was to make a music album that would spark chaos and revolution. The murders, apparently, where done to try to instigate a race war.
I'm with you on this much, the entire thing was used against the "hippy" movement, can't dispute that at all. But I don't see it as a false
flag, I see it as them taking the opportunity presented to them, Manson brainwashed a bunch of stoned kids into murdering people. From all reports,
while being completely insane, the man is very engaging, Hitler-esque in his ability to capture your attention, and that's without being stoned out
of your skull on lsd.
I believe the murders happened because of him, and he is just as guilty as those who committed them, the only conspiracy i see was how, after the
fact, it was used for an agenda, but that's how governments work.
Indeed, you bringing up Oswald plays into that, if you believe he was involved or just a patsy, he was former military, went to Russia apparently
trying to defect, and came back to the US basically a wanna be communist. All of that is clearly documented.
the government used that situation to their advantage, either by creating it in the first place, or by using it after the fact.
To me, the Manson Murders were the death of the infancy of the counter culture movement. Daycare was over, now it's time to grow up and be realistic
about things. the counter culture is alive and well, it's just evolved into something that actually fits into society instead of trying to replace
