"Revolution!" ln that most fateful of Kali-years, 1969, this was the rallying cry for a thousand disparate elements of an increasingly disaffected and restless youth. Two summers before, "love· was the logos that a newly awakened generation held sacred as an instrument of subversion. Now, a more militant spirit had been invoked and it seemed that only violence could create the total transformation so desperately yearned for. A decidedly noir current had begun to seep into the psychedelic underground. lndeed, not si nee the fin de siecle of the last century, when the Order of the Golden Dawn, Blavatsky's Theosophy, and the Ariosophists of Austria and Germany had flourished, had such a latter-day revival of ancient mysteries been seen.
