"1969: On August 8th, Anton LaVey conducts a Hippie Ritual at the Church of Satan in which he bitterly curses the 'psychedelic vermin' infesting the world. He calls for a purge to relegate the slaves to the pens in which they belong, catalyzing a new era of Satanic awareness. The next day the participants of the Hippie Ritual read about the horrors discovered in the Benedict Canyon home of Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski."
