California "is a renowned haven for faddists, individualists and nuts of every kind. . . There's always some screwball out here who's got some new cult or ism working and a band of happy unrealistic acolytes around him who are now convinced that they've discovered the True Path to everlasting health, wealth and satisfactory orgasm." John Wilcock, writing in April 1966. Quoted in James Webb, The Occult Establishment, 447.
