Helter-skelter is not the British English word for roller-coaster, it's a helical slide (on a mat in my youth) around a tall tower.  Lily Ta, wack! 05:04, 2 November 2008 (EST)

Conspiracy theory?[edit]

Could we also add this as a conspiracy theory, since one may be able to deduce that Manson's ideas about the meaning of the song were, ultimately, a conspiracy theory, similar to the "vast Jewish conspiracy" conspiracy theory of the anti-semites?

Sure. Definitely. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:58, 28 June 2010 (UTC)


Again, spring cleaning, as the above suggestion hasn't really materialised (and would go on a page about Manson, not its own song page anyway) is there any point to this?? Scarlet A.pngnarchist 15:13, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

It would be fairly on-mission to have an article about Charles Manson, & merge the relevant content from here into that. The trivia about U2 can be deleted. ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 16:51, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Wow, that was fast. Eight hours from tagging to deletion? I think surely something about Manson's deranged interpretations would come close to the mission. ħumanUser talk:Human 22:56, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
I think the Veisel is right, I'm gonna move it and rearrange a bit and see how that looks. I'll leave the delete template up for now though. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:04, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
There's no need for the delete template as it actually now has something on Manson. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 23:10, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Go ahead and pull it, then, thanks. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:13, 9 October 2010 (UTC)


What is the context of this interview? -- (talk) 08:40, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

I don't know what the context is, but Manson is a delusional maniac who was illiterate at least into his late teens, so I wouldn't take anything he says seriously. Notice how he says he had all the "money in the world" three times and gave it all away three times. Manson never had any wealth to speak of. He was in and out of prison more or less his entire life, he's completely full of shit. Marlow (talk) 01:15, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
The guy's a blatant psychopath, so anything he says has to be taken with a large dose of salt. Fuck the cunt; the world will be a brighter place when he has the decency to snuff his lid. --Scherben (talk) 16:24, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Off topic?[edit]

Does this article really need a long screed about Vincent Bugliosi in the second paragraph? Nowhere Man (talk) 16:11, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Were Manson's actions actually Crimes against Humanity[edit]

We all know what he did was horrible but were the scale of his actions on par with leaders of authoritarian regimes like, say, North Korea, Saddam Husein's Iraq, Nazi Germany, or the USSR? Seems a bit of a stretch.SDSD (talk) 18:11, 19 March 2022 (UTC)

I agree, I’ve removed the category. Christopher (talk) 18:59, 19 March 2022 (UTC)
