The KPAM morning news summarized Manson’s belief system today. He was a real piece of work.
Charles Manson believed that by committing the murders, he could cause Black liberation groups, such as the Black Panthers, to be incorrectly blamed. This would lead to an “apocalyptic” race war that the Black liberation groups would ultimately win. Knowing these prophecies, Manson and his followers would go into hiding. The Black liberation groups would prove too incompetent to run the world, so then Manson and his cronies would then come out of hiding and save the day.
