Writer Takes Cues From Charles Manson

BANGKOK, Thailand (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being Charles Manson’s pen pal taught one writer a thing or two about manipulating people.

From 1976 to 1978 Richard Rubacher worked with authorities as Charles Manson’s confidant and received 92 letters and 12 postcards from the imprisoned killer.

The chilling letters are the subject of Rubacher’s new book, Charles Manson’s Blood Letters – Dueling With The Devil (iUniverse), and provide insight into Manson’s murderous mind.

Besides the fact that Manson thought it was his God- given duty to kill, Rubacher says the letters expose his “methods of seduction” – how he got followers to do things for him.

Manson used sex, drugs, fear, and special vocabulary to manipulate people, including “Charlie Talk,” his nurturing mother tone, and “Manson Talk,” his intimidating macho tone.

Rubacher vouches that Manson’s lingo works, and even used it himself once on a “tough dude” that Manson sent to his house looking for the letters.

Rubacher started speaking “Charlie Talk” and upon hearing Manson’s tone mimicked, the thug left him alone.
