Today, some new disclosures came out about insidious plans Jim had in the mid-1970s. They are detailed in Julia Scheeres’ new book, coming out in October. They caught me by surprise (again). But, my good friend Teri O’Shea confirms them, so I have to believe them. This is a reply I sent to the Bay Citizen.

I am also a survivor of Jonestown, and likely would have been on the plane with the other members of the Peoples Temple Planning Commission. Many times, I dismissed the many crazy things Jim Jones said as theatrics. He had thousands of people in services up to four times a week, and had to be dramatic and entertaining to keep them coming. Never before that, in recent history that I knew about, had a horrific plan like that been implemented. Since there was no point of reference, the nature of the plan made it seem impossible. The overwhelming majority of Peoples Temple members were idealists – and yes, naive. Far too naive.
