How Charles Manson Came to Lead One of the World’s Most Dangerous Cults

Whatever you need a website for, create yours today with Wix: Why was Charles Manson so good at convincing people to follow him? Today we will talk about serial killing again, but this show is different because our protagonist wasn’t the person who committed the murders. He was behind them, though, as the leader of a cult called The Manson Family. Some cults, although sometimes regarded by authorities as suspect, go about their days in peace. Others are not so benign. Today we’ll look at one cult only, in this episode of the Infographics Show, Horrific American Cult Leader - Charles Manson.’ SUBSCRIBE TO US -► -------------------------------------------------------------------------- WEBSITE (SUGGEST A TOPIC): SUPPORT US: Patreon.......► SOCIAL: Twitter........► Subreddit...► -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sources for this episode:

He was really charismatic I think. Cults play to our most vulnerable human desires and motivations.

Not koolaid

The only reason mason claimed the “race war” and the connection to the songs, was that he just wanted an excuse to move to the desert and ride dune buggies. His family took it too far and then Charles came to their rescue. I’m not excusing him, but so many people make him out to be some sort of criminal mastermind. But really they were a bunch of bumbling idiots, hyped on drugs. One of the girls didn’t even write helter skelter correctly on the wall.

Honestly, it was a pretty shitty ‘cult’ if that’s what you want to call it. Manson is really just a unsuccessful music hippie version of Rasputin. Both sucked at actually organizing anything large enough to be a cult.

The Greatest Cult Leader will always be Dutch Van Der Linde

This guy was a saint compared to Shoko Asahara
You mentioned a single attack by him but you left out all the stuffs like the fact that they literally developed atomic weapons and huge supplies of chem and bio weapons and were planning on releasing/launching all of them all a major cities around the world at once

Emma Jose:
Charles Manson used the perpetrators’ weakness: family. he made them think that he is the “father” and he provided for each of them thus earning a sense of “obligation” to pay him back through following his orders.
Charles Manson never wrote a book! Someone who met him in prison claimed to interview him and write down what he said but according to Manson that book did not faithfully relay his words.
Not as dangerous as The Dear's Leader cult.

Any CallMeKevin fan here?

he came to me with money in his hands, I didn't ask him. I wasn't knocking someone's door down, I was running from that. when I got out I was in that, I was already through that. I had that. I had the studio. I went to the studio, I went to Fox studios. I had it all, and I looked at it and I said "this is a bigger jail that I just got out of. I don't wanna take my time going to work, I got a motorcycle and a sleeping bag and ten or fifteen girls. What the hell I wanna go off and go to work for? Work for what? Money? I got all the money in the world. I'm the king, man. I run the underworld, guy. I decide who does what and where they do it at. What am I gonna run around like some teeny bopper somewhere for someone else's money? I make the money man, I roll the nickels. The game is mine. I deal the cards

I just wanted to learn about Hippos and this one one of the few videos to show up.
There is some irony there.

It is hard for me to give a like to a video explaining life of a serial killer as such, but your videos are really nicely made with touch of humor and quite interesting. Great job.
