Start Your Own Religion
The articles in Start Your Own Religion, written at the height of the psychedelic era, embody Timothy Leary's core philosophy — unlimited personal freedom. Encouraging the youth of the 1960s to return to the temple of God — their own bodies — and live consciously in the here-and-now, Leary's ideas, including urging people to turn on, tune in, drop out, brought him legions of devoted followers and a host of enemies in the American government. Irreverent yet thought provoking, the ideas that revolutionized an earlier generation remain motivational principles.
