Spencer Syfrig March 21, 2006 English 101 Caswell CR #4 Helter-Skelter Charles Manson was the leader of a group of people known as ‘The Family’ in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s (wikipedia.com). He led this group to carry out murders and other crimes that he felt were necessary. Manson meets my criteria for a leader because he was: charismatic, controlling, had a goal, willing to suffer, adaptable, and had followers. He was able to convince a group of young people to brutally murder innocent victims. His charisma allowed him to do this because his followers felt he was genuine and truthful. His following grew to around one-hundred during his peak in the late 1960’s. Manson believed that a war was imminent and he would be the new leader after surviving the war. He needed to show the world how to start the war so he instructed the murders (wikipedia.com). His goal was to survive this war and then be the new world

Unformatted text preview: leader. Manson was able to control his followers through promising them a better life in the future if they do what he tells them to. Manson is willing to suffer as shown by the majority of his life he has spent in prison. If he didn’t want to suffer in prison he would have attempted to kill himself already. He still attempts to control ‘The Family’ despite being incarcerated. He has adapted to instructing his followers despite being in prison through letters and using the media as much as possible (wikipedia.com). Despite being a inhumane and delusional human-being he meets the criteria I have set forth to be a leader. Works Cited "Charles Manson."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
