Steel Notes Magazine July & August 2016 You May Be A Lover But You Ain’t No Dancer Charlie Manson By © Guido Colacci 2016 I have to confess that this has been one of the most difficult articles I have ever written. There is so much information, connections and facts that are hidden and have to be searched out and then putting them into context and trying to make a timeline of it all and showing the pattern is a daunting task for even the most talented of writers. I have done the very best I could. You would think that the state and the government could easily pull off such a hoax today given special effects, the internet, and other advances in social media. Unfortunately, this occurred 47 years ago and has stood for 43 years, without barely any truthers. Let’s begin by looking at the history and politics that led up to it.
