Titel: The brotherhood of eternal love
Sub titel: From flower power to hippie mafia: the story of the LSD counterculture
Created in 1966 in California, The Brotherhood of Eternal Love had a membership of 750 and was held responsible for widely distributing LSD in the US. The police described it as a 'hippie mafia' and the counter-culture talked softly of a secretive, mystical band whose motives were idealistic. Eventually, The Brotherhood came to symbolize the rise of LSD,the growth of the psychedelic movement and the heady, optimistic, revolutionary, energized days of the 1960s. The Brotherhood of Eternal Love tells the story of a group of idealists fascinated by the potential of LSD to improve the quality of Manís life. In doing so, we enter into a decade in which Youth seemed about to conquer the world with rock ní roll for its battle hymns and slogans for a manifesto.
