â€śAll truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.â€ť
Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 â€“ 1860)
This episode is a presentation given by me, my first solo show, titled â€śMagic Mushrooms and the Psychedelic Revolution: Beginning a New Historyâ€ť â€“ or â€śThe Secret History of Magic Mushroomsâ€ť and is being released on Sunday, May 13, 2012.
Today is the 55th anniversary since the publication of the May 13, 1957, Life magazine article, Seeking the Magic Mushroom, published by Gordon Wasson, which is what is largely considered to have launched the psychedelic revolution.
Today weâ€™re going to toss out the last 55 years of academic history regarding the discovery of magic mushrooms, the beginnings of the field of ethnomycology, and this major event in launching the psychedelic revolution; and weâ€™re going to start a new history â€“ one based on truth and verifiable facts rather than legends and myths.
Six years in the making, this episode exposes one of the largest coverups in modern academic history â€“ something that may one day be regarded as large as the Piltdown Hoax. Weâ€™re going to reveal how the psychedelic revolution was launched by the CFR, CIA and the elite, and how R. Gordon Wasson, the so called discoverer of magic mushrooms, and the founder of the field of ethnomycology, was himself a government asset, a friend of Edward Bernays â€“ the father of propaganda, and is one of the key figures for launching one of the largest mind control operations in history â€“ information never before revealed until today. And it doesnâ€™t stop there. Iâ€™m going to provide information that shows how R. Gordon Wasson may have been one of the key players in the organization of the JFK assassination.
