And I've been a hundred million years getting that done. And that's my will. and I'm God. And I don't care if you don't like it, or don't accept it. It doesn't matter. I could drop this body right here and go on and be a thousand stars..." -Charles Manson

''I'm not surrendering my soul. I'm not surrendering my father. I'm not giving up my dad, you know. My dad drinks scotch whiskey and plays the bagpipes -- does what he wants to do, you know. I ain't gonna surrender that. And they tell me, "Your dad's dead." My dad never dies, man. There ain't no such thing as death.'' - Charles Manson
Manson is a Scottish surname of Viking origin, the anglicised version of the Scandinavian name Magnusson, meaning son of Magnus. Magnus was a common name among the Scandinavian aristocracy. Magnus, meaning "Great" in Latin (i.e. magnificent), gained wider currency during the Middle Ages, when various European nations, and their royal houses, introduced it upon being converted to Latin-speaking Catholic Christianity. This was especially the case with Scandinavian royalty and nobility. As a Scandinavian forename, it was inspired by the ruler of the Franks, Charlemagne whose Latin name was "Carolus Magnus" and understood in Old Norse as magn-hús, "house of might/power". The word ''magnus'' is rooted in the Proto-Indo-European "Mag" which is from where words such as magic, magi, magus, magnitude, magistrate etc. derive.
''...Got Children in the darkness where the highlander rolls, got knights in the battles of the shadows of my soul...'' - Charles Manson
Manson's blood is Scottish and Irish, he is of the Clan Gunn a clan hailing from with northeastern Scotland, in the regions of Caithness, Sutherland and the Orkney Islands.

The clan is an armigerous clan, without a chief.
ON THE 11TH DAY OF THE 11TH MONTH
''I'm a military child. All the retired people of all the wars have always raised me. The uniform is my father. So I believed that we had rights in a courtroom, and that all we had to do was take our problems to the judge and he'd fix it. Because I felt that the judge was the authority, was God, was our father, was the military, was the country.'' -Charles Manson
Today is Veterans Day in the United States of America (and Armistice Day in many parts of the world). Our Fathers, Grandfathers, Great Grandfathers, died in the battlefields to preserve our rights supposedly guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. Charles Manson's father died in the battlefield to protect and preserve the rights Manson was not granted when his Constitutional 14th Amendment right to represent himself In Propria Persona was taken away in the People of California v. Manson in 1970.
CHARLES MANSONS' RIGHTS
''You go into a graveyard and look at all the martyrs of the heart, all the men that gave their lives for god and country, and then you come and say, "Where did Charlie go wrong?" Did Charlie go wrong? Or was the ocean of the spiritual movement in the world to bring change to this planet? Did it start before Charlie was born and everybody else was wrong?
The President of the United States is supposedly the leader of us all. Well, you can't pick me for the leader of the family and then give Nixon immunity. He killed a lot more people than Charlie did.'' - Charles MansonCharles Manson, who's ancestors and family members are on record as fighting in the American Revolution for Independence, the U.S. Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War was denied his Constitutional Right to defend himself in a court of law and subsequently given the death penalty for murders he did not commit and was never accused of committing. The death penalty in the state of California was overturned and Manson was sentenced to life with possibility of parole.

He's endured Hell, his rights taken away, his children taken away, his music stolen and destroyed, his ranch burnt down, his mail stolen, his friends forbidden to see him, locked in the hole, poisoned, sprayed with chemicals, beaten, his ribs broken and his teeth knocked out, tied to four-point restraints, set on fire, lied about in the media for 40 years and ripped of by the cursed Hollywood and rock stars. But Charles Manson has SURVIVED, standing in the fires of eternity. he is universal brother to all men who have given their lives in service to TRUTH, HONOR AND JUSTICE.
