VIDEO: Power & Control: LSD in The Sixties - A Film By Aron Ranen

Hi all,

One of my readers, Aron Ranen, has created a fascinating documentary on what is virtually a 'sociology of power and control of LSD in the 1960s'. It is compelling viewing and I urge you to have a look:

Part One: An Introduction

Part Two: This section features Ram Dass and Divinity students who participated in an authorized Tim Leary experiment. 10 were given Mushrooms, and the others a Placebo in a "Religous Test" of the drug run by Harvard. The actual participant is located and interviewed by the filmmaker for this film.

Part Three: In this section the final segment of Preachers on Mushrooms, Haight-Ashbury and the rise of LSD in the Anti-WAR movement with The Free Speech Movement's Michael Rossman. Plus more Ram Dass and the place Tim Leary first took LSD.

Part Four: This Final Segment features LSD's role in the Anti-War and Protest Movement with Paul Krassner.
This documentary was filmed and edited by Aron Ranen who is seeking funding/investor to finish and make it feature-length. If anyone wishes to contact Aron with a joint venture proposal, just let me know and I'll put you in contact.


Dr Robert Muller.
