As 1960s youth sought to break free from post-war society values, there were a number of cults waiting to take them in. This paper discusses the rise of cults from that era, the influence of drugs on the formation of cults, and America's continued fascination, and horror, of that era which as seemingly evolved into folklore. Timothy Leary's promotion of LSD use, The Church of Satanism and The Manson Family are all highlighted.
