Audio recording of the Jonestown / People's Temple Mass-Suicide
    #4347030 - 06/28/05 04:10 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Description:
Jim Jones moved his church, over 800 followers, to Guyana. The followers were promised a tropical paradise, free from the wickedness of the outside world, but when they arrived, they were forced to work by Jones' orders, and together they built Jonestown. In November 1978, the cult was visited by Leo Ryan, a United States Congressman, who was investigating claims of abuse. A number of Temple members expressed a desire to leave along with the Congressman, and the
entire group went to the local airstrip. Temple security guards fired on the group, killing Congressman Ryan, three journalists, and a Temple member who wanted to leave. The shootings were captured on film by one of the journalists who died in the attack. Later that day, Jones ordered his congregation to drink a cyanide-laced fruit drink in the Jonestown mass suicide. Those who resisted were
shot, strangled or injected with cyanide. Jones was found with a shot wound in his head. Upon investigation his body contained high doses of drugs. In all, 914 people died. Some say 911 died.

This is an audio recording of the hour before that very mass suicide. In the recording, Jones urges his commune to step forward and take the poison, first for their children, then for themselves. :evil: Creepy. :thumbdown:

"Life has no meaning."

I like this guy. He was insane, but in a good way.

I was dissapointed...I thought he would be a really good public speaker. He just sounded tired and drugged.

He sounded like Leary when ne recorded his speech LP's in that garden after being depressed because adults don't like him

He was probably nervous, seeing his impending doom and such.

I doubt that speech was the top of his life.

I don't think he was feeling fear about it or he would not have done it. His control obsession was stronger than his survival mechanism. If I was a psycho-crazy cult leader I would think that on the day of the mass suicide I would be at the top of my game.

I didn't realize he had a lisp. But it's very pronounced in the tapes.

He kind of sounds like a sssssnake or an evil T.D. Jakes.
