Was 1960s ​’​Hippie Revolutio​​n​’​ a ​Deep-State Psy-Op to Neutralize the Anti-War Movement?

Wiki

Los Angeles was the birthplace of the fol​k-rock and hippie movement that has many strange ​’coincidences​’​ including​ a​n incredible number of ​early ​rock stars who came from military​-​intelligence families and families ​that were ​highly connected​ politically​.​ Some of the musicians had ​little prior experience in music and ​appear to have been ​selected and ​groomed for their roles.​

Author, Dave McGowan, theorizes that the hippie movement was a Psychological Operation by the deep state to create controlled opposition to itself and its global wars. It did this in the form of a movement that was so repulsive to most Americans that they would feel compelled to support the wars. [An analogy would be that the violent Left vs. Right clashes we see today are being allowed and even orchestrated by the deep state to cause Americans to recoil from the violence and support martial law as the solution.] -GEG

Dave McGowan, author of Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon: Laurel Canyon, Covert Ops & the Dark Heart of the Hippie Dream, exposes deep​-​state ties to iconic rock stars, actors​,​ and even Charles Manson, in the tumultuous​ 1960s. Laurel Canyon, in Los Angeles, is the site of Lookout Mountain Laboratories, a ​once ​top-secret Air Force facility to protect Los Angeles from an aerial attack during World War 2​. Later, it was re-purposed into a film studio. Lookout Mountain​ labs​ processed raw footage from nuclear bomb tests and more.  Actors including Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne and Marilyn Monroe, and ​several ​heavyweight producers had clearance at the facility.
.
Many rock stars from that period c​ame from ​career ​military​ ​families. Jim Morrison, who emerged as an anti-war icon, was the son of a Navy Admiral who oversaw the Gulf of Tonkin false​-​flag incident that launched the Vietnam war. Frank Zappa’s father was a chemical​-​warfare specialist. Other rock bands​, singers, and songwriters with deep​-​state ties include the Byrds, the Doors, Buffalo Springfield, the Monkees, the Beach Boys, Steppenwolf, Love, the Turtles, the Mam​a​s​ &​​ the Papas, the Flying Burrito Brothers, the Eagles, America, Jackson Brown, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt​,​ and Carol King.
.
An industry was built around the​se​ musicians with ​night​clubs, radio stations​,​ and record labels​ all clamoring to help them before they became known​.  Vito Paulekas, who married into the Rockefeller family, ​was influential in shaping the hippie trend​. He led a dance troupe, known as the Freaks, that ​went from club to club as patrons (admitted free) to ​dr​a​w crowds to the clubs​ where the unknown musicians were playing​.
.
Young Hollywood stars on the rise like Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, Peter and Jane Fonda, Sharon Tate, Bruce Dern, ​and ​Dennis Hopper​ also​ were part of the Laurel Canyon scene, and most of them descended from military​ families​ also​. Charles Manson had close relationships with Neil Young, the Beach Boys, and the Mamas ​& the Papas​,​ and was accepted as a peer ​at the Laurel Canyon music scene. Sharon Tate’s father ​also ​was a military intelligence officer.
.
Dave McGowan concludes that ​t​he hippie movement was created to undermine the budding anti-war movement.  Prior to the hippie ​phenomenon, there already existed an anti-war movement consisting of conservative​,​ straight-laced​,​ and educated college professors who were taken seriously, ​but ​soon ​they were replaced ​by school dropouts who ​became hooked on drugs and free love. It is ​significant that none of the Laurel Canyon rock stars, who were of the age to be drafted, were ever called​ into the service​. If the hippies ​had been a threat to the establishment, the state ​easily ​could have taken them down. Many were ​openly ​involved in trafficking drugs, but ​none were ever punished for this crime.

Are Bankers Planning Bail-Ins Using Depositors’ Money?

Bank depositors risk losing a portion of their bank deposits. However, since each account is protected by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000, the scheme would covertly revert back to passing the bill to taxpayers to fund the FDIC, which quickly will be bankrupted by the demand for payouts.

No one has done a proper study for a novel, never-seen-before virus, and it will never be attempted because it would destroy the theory that one virus is causing a pandemic. A few people at the top know the truth, but the cult operates on blind faith.

If it was, it was a dismal failure since the “hippy revolution” ended up forcing the end of the war.

Interesting discussion about the West-Coast southern California scene by David McGowan. For sure, we need to understand the absolute extent of psychological-operations throughout all aspects of western militarized society including such as the ‘hippie’ & ‘peace’ movement. Such controls continue to this day. While many hippies dug deep to become-the-change-we-want-to-see-in-the-world, much of the movement is still caught in protest & reaction rather than manifesting pro-action. I lived in the San Fernando Valley of LA during 1974 for a year so I bicycled through Laurel Canyon many times. Its really just a privileged suburb of LA adjacent to Hollywood & money,… Read more »
