[AUDIO] An audio recording made on November 18, 1978, at the Peoples Temple compound in Jonestown, Guyana immediately preceding and during the mass suicide or murder of over 900 members, recovered by the FBI after the mass suicide of the cult.
THIS IS WHAT RELIGIOSITY LOOKS LIKE! THIS IS WHAT RELIGIOSITY LOOKS LIKE! THIS IS WHAT RELIGIOSITY LOOKS LIKE!
And now for something completely, disturbing.
Good to know genes like these, were not perpetuated. What idiots.
They celebrate the murders at the airstrip, as deserving, and then say they are NOT committing suicide, but launching a revolution,
What the HELL is the difference, once you’re dead? Where is the rationality?
It sounds much like any church service I’ve witnessed….
This issue isn’t so much the dude’s insanity, by how and why so many are so willing to follow…
The addictive nature of mass delusion is such a sad fact of humanity. This is much like the Nazi hysteria that spread all throughout Europe in the 1930s. The Nazis came so far, at such an incredible pace…in less than 15 years they had physically and mentally reshaped so much history, understanding and thought. Whither humanity? –rudhro
An audio recording made on November 18, 1978, at the Peoples Temple compound in Jonestown, Guyana immediately preceding and during the mass suicide or murder of over 900 members, recovered by the FBI after the mass suicide of the cult.
A total of 909 Temple members died in Jonestown, all but two from apparent cyanide poisoning, in an event termed “revolutionary suicide” by Jones and some members on an audio tape of the event and in prior discussions. The poisonings in Jonestown followed the murder of five others by Temple members at a nearby Port Kaituma airstrip. The victims included Congressman Leo Ryan, the first and only Congressman assassinated in the line of duty in the history of the United States. Four other Temple members died in Georgetown at Jones’ command.
Jonestown was the informal name for the “Peoples Temple Agricultural Project“, an intentional community in northwestern Guyana formed by the Peoples Temple, an American cult led by Jim Jones. It became internationally notorious when, on November 18, 1978, 918 people died in the settlement as well as in a nearby airstrip and in Georgetown, Guyana’s capital. The name of the settlement became synonymous with the incidents at those locations.
