Jones Town was the informal name for the Peoples Temple Agricultural Project. This was a Christian destructive, doomsday cult founded and led by James Warren Jones (1931-1978). James Warren Jones had strong religious passion and a unique interest in death. Due to this weird interest, he became a symbol of brainwashing. He believed that Bible was fake and it was like a fairy tale. The Peoples Temple was initially structured as an inter-racial mission for the sick, homeless and jobless. He assembled a large following of over 900 members in Indianapolis IN during the 1950′s. On November 18, 1978: 914(638 adults and 276 children) people died in the settlement as well as in a nearby airstrip and in Georgetown, Guyana’s capital. Most appear to have committed suicide by drinking a grape drink laced with cyanide and a number of sedatives, including liquid Valium, Penegram and chloral hydrate.The actions in Jonestown were viewed as a mass suicide, it is the largest such event in modern history and resulted in the largest single loss of American civilian life in a non-natural disaster until the events of September 11, 2001.
I’ll tell what i think about the course of events :-
This is the only word that strikes my head after getting to know the course of events that happened rather were intentionally executed. I see the week long turmoil that occurred back in Nov,1978 as an act of
“vivified persuation that resulted in a volcanic eruption” .
Leo Ryan, the Congressman undoubtedly playing the hero here ,determined to bring the truth in context with the Peoples Temple’s authority to light and to resolder a psycho’s mob that had turned atheist , a puppet completely dazzled by his words.
Jim Jones, the villain whom I would love to adore with the noun I started off with. His actions proved that he was mentally ill and enjoyed combining his issues with drugs and social-violence and that made him lethal. I mean, yes, he was charismatic but with a obnoxiously dark aura-bound soul.
Manipulator, was able to more or less execute over 900 people. Blind to what the folks plead for, what their eyes yearned for because being the Czar was all he could see in his Guyanese district which ended up turning “THE CULT OF DEATH”.
You confess about leaving Jonestown and with the dusk you end up becoming history .Hesitation to provide clearance to the reporters in Guyana, a cult kept completely sacked from the electronic domain and hence the globe and several vaguer nods, all prove his obscene side .The one which as a consequence compelled more than 900 people to unwillingly bestow their innocent lives for simply nothing.
Perhaps he tried being Che Guevara and Fidel Castro sorts but failed big time indeed !
What I infer is that a lot of people join cults because they can’t stand taking charge of their own life.
Give up control and end up nowhere.
