To lightly touch on my past subject of brainwashing…
This entire set of music is “safe” from any “triggers” for me. It is pre-birth, since I was born in the 1970’s. However, if you were born in the 1960’s, you would want to go further back for yourself to the 1950’s.
I really encourage people to look into brainwashing, propaganda and I guess in general how our world works. Spend even an entire week only looking at things from the 1890’s and then “return” to modern time. You really will see a drastic difference.
Your brain is like a TV, it is a receiver, but like a TV it picks up all the other channels. When you are on one channel, it does not mean that all the other channels are not broadcasting. Like a radio, you might be tuned in to 92.3 FM, but 95.5 FM is still playing, even if you are not listening.
Beginning with the discovery of LSD in 1943, this “monumental social history of psychedelia” tracks the most potent drug known to science—from its use by the government during the paranoia of the Cold War to its spill-over into a revolutionary antiestablishment recreation during the Vietnam War—setting the stage for one of the great ideological battles of the decade (The Village Voice).
In the intervening years, the CIA launched a massive covert research program in the hope that LSD would serve as an espionage weapon; psychiatric pioneers came to believe that acid would shed light on the perplexing problems of mental illness; and a new generation of writers and artists in countercultural transition sought to break the “mind-forged manacles” of a new generation in rebellion—among them, Timothy Leary, Ken Kesey, the Beatles, Allen Ginsberg, William Mellon Hitchcock, and Abbie Hoffman. Painting an indelible portrait of an unforgettable era and using startling information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, Acid Dreams also exposes one of the most bizarre, shocking, and often tragic episodes in American history.
