LSD Concentration Camps In ‘Wild In The Streets’

If you’ve never seen the film Wild in the Streets, a lost classic of trashy hippie-sploitation, it’s well worth a viewing. Released in 1968, it envisions a dystopian near future in which counterculture-loving young people, fed up with the older generations, take over the government and rewrite the laws to center around youth and hedonism.

Under the new order, at age 35, all adults are permanently imprisoned in psychedelic re-education “mercy centers” where, as revolutionary leader Max Frost explains, “in groovy surroundings, we’re going to psyche ‘em all out on LSD.” Is it a nightmare, or a future model for a humane and fun form of euthanasia?

    a very ineffective way to euthanize…mind you in terms of invoking a consciousness shift (as so many people are fond of referring to these days), nothing more powerful than entheogens ! …just the context (setting) that predicates the experience needs to be right and its different for everyone!
