Robert Priddy’s Wilful Deceptions About His LSD Advocacy

Robert Priddy’s Wilful Deceptions About His LSD Advocacy

On Robert Priddy’s Anti-Baba WordPress blog, he published an article entitled “Moreno’s Wilful Deceptions About LSD And Robert Priddy” in which he openly and publicly attacked Gerald Joe Moreno as a “libeler”. Since Robert Priddy attacks Gerald Moreno on WordPress (and publishes screencaps taken from Moreno’s WordPress blog), a response is therefore necessary on WordPress. Let us take a closer look at Robert Priddy’s actual words and see if Moreno’s comments are really “libels” or not (click thumbnail to enlarge):

Robert Priddy And LSD - Libel Or Fact

Robert Priddy And LSD - Libel Or Fact

Some select quotes:

Robert Priddy: “The above libel is just one small example of Gerald Moreno’s fanatical personal attacks and character assassination attempts against me. I have only advocated visiting a forum where drugs are discussed, so as to obtain at least a minimum of knowledge about what their use can involve. Some entries are interesting! I have not endorsed the contents of the forum, nor do I advocate the use of LSD-25!”

Robert Priddy: “My involvement with LSD ended many decades ago, long before John Lennon’s or many other famous persons experiments or outright use of this psychedelic agent. I first took it (as provided for general experimentation by the Minister of Health, Norway) in 1963, and only repeated the experiment twice in subsequent years. I have never advocated the use of LSD! Moreno cannot prove it, and he should take much greater care in what he ‘recklessly’ asserts.”

First and foremost, Robert Priddy has been praising and eulogizing his LSD-induced hallucinations for well over 46 years. Although Robert Priddy whined that his druggy years are “outdated” and “ancient”, it is amusing to note that Robert Priddy eulogized his “outdated” and “ancient” druggy years:

  1. In 1988 (25 years later) in his LSD article entitled “TRUTH, BEING AND BLISS – AN AMAZING PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCE – Described By Robert C. Priddy – British author & ret’d researcher and teacher in philosophy and sociology, University of Oslo, Norway”: “I try here to give as truthful an account as I can of what befell me in 1963. In the intervening 25 years I have continually been returning to that experience as as source of inspiration and in the hope that the fullest possible light may be shed on it for me.” (LSD Reference).
  2. In 1994 (31 years later) in his book “Source Of The Dream”, pg: 16-7, Chapter 2: ‘When the Soil is Ready’: “A totally mind-shattering and subsequently most wonderful and intensely ecstatic experience befell me one day, as if from out of the blue. Much could be said on the subject, as it is an almost entirely misunderstood one and thus very controversial, but I do not believe doing so would appreciably enlighten anyone who has not actually had the very same experience. I am certain that no words can capture the vital nature and truth of such an experience of transcendental consciousness…” (LSD Reference).
  3. In 2009 (46 years later) on his Anti-Baba WordPress blog in an article entitled “Copyright Infringement By SathyaSaiBaba”.

Therefore, Robert Priddy DID advocate for his use of LSD and continually defends his LSD-induced hallucinations as being bona-fide, true and revelatory. What message does this send to people who may want to try LSD? According to Robert Priddy, “if one is well-balanced and fortunate in the circumstances” LSD can give bona fide realizations and revelations. In Moreno’s opinion, this is LSD Advocacy, clear and simple.

Robert Priddy’s Denial: LSD-Visions Were Not Hallucinations:

On Robert Priddy’s Anti-Baba WordPress blog, he said the following about his LSD-induced hallucinations:

Robert Priddy: “On LSD-25 and alleged ‘drug-induced hallucinations’ Moreno makes false assumptions in dismissing LSD-25 experiences merely as induced hallucinations – it is very far from being so simple. Hallucinations can occur as a result of LSD, but they did not in my case. I was a student interested in psychiatry and psychology and my dose of LSD-25 was actually provided by the Norwegian Minister of Health explicitly for experimental purposes! Only one who has experienced it can have any idea at all of what inner clarity and scope of the mind may be released, if one is well-balanced and fortunate in the circumstances. In that I was in company with many well-known writers and hands-on researchers on the subject (egs. Aldous Huxley, Gerald Heard, Professor Susan Blackmore etc.) The dangers are considerable for borderline psychotics and others, so experiments are definitely not to be recommended to the public.”

In Robert Priddy’s detailed LSD articles (and in a subsequent update added by him after a Pro-Sai Activist found the LSD-related webpages), he never stated that his LSD-25 was “provided by the Norwegian Minister of Health explicitly for experimental purposes”. Robert Priddy specifically stated he first experimented with cannabis then later experimented with LSD when he was 26 years old in 1963 with his friend Eric Steadman (with whom he shared a “perfect unspoken telepathic awareness”) and the entire episode was saved on a tape-recorder he turned on.

Although Robert Priddy wrote about his LSD experiences in depth, he never mentioned anything about any University officials, volunteer testing, Karl Evang or that the LSD-25 he took was “provided by the Norwegian Minister of Health explicitly for experimental purposes”. Furthermore, Robert Priddy admitted he experimented with cannabis before he experimented with LSD in 1963, experimented with “strong bio-chemicals” and LSD years after he experimented with LSD in 1963 and even wrote about another LSD-induced hallucination in 1965. Therefore, Robert Priddy fully acknowledged he experimented with drugs prior to and after his initial LSD trip in 1963. Was Robert Priddy also using cannabis and other “strong bio-chemicals” for “experimental purposes”?

It is also significant to point out that the scientific community (contrary to Robert Priddy’s layman claims) unanimously agrees that LSD is a hallucinogenic drug and is commonly referred to as a “hallucinogen” (Refs: LSD 01LSD 02LSD 03LSD 04).

And let us not forget what exactly Robert Priddy claimed was revealed to him when he tripped on LSD. Robert Priddy claimed he saw (amidst lots of fluff and airy-fairy scenes) his wrist break with the bones sticking out of his flesh, compared the experience to what “schizophrenics may experience with intensity”, that his mind was ”deranged” and that his mind was “shattered into pieces again and again”. Gee, that doesn’t sound “hallucinatory” at all, does it? (sarcasm implied)

Let us take a look at the three people that Robert Priddy cited to support and defend his views on LSD:

  • Susan Blackmore: “I hope that one day soon it will be; that as a society we will prove wise enough to use LSD for its highest potential, not its worst. And for purely selfish reasons, I hope this will happen in time for me to take LSD again in my lifetime and that, like Huxley, I may be able to take it on my deathbed.” (Ref)
  • Aldous Huxley was a humanist and pacifist, and he was latterly interested in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology, Human Potential Movement, Vedanta and philosophical mysticism. He is also well known for advocating and taking psychedelics. Aldous Huxley took LSD on his deathbed and referred to LSD as “a mystical, religious experience”.
  • Gerald Heard was a historian, science writer, educator, LSD advocate, philosopher and friend of Aldous Huxley.

Therefore, Robert Priddy’s current views on LSD are based on the views of LSD advocates he considers as authorities on the subject!

Therefore, Robert Priddy DID advocate for his use of LSD and continually defends his LSD-induced hallucinations as being bona-fide, true and revelatory. What message does this send to people who may want to try LSD? According to Robert Priddy, “if one is well-balanced and fortunate in the circumstances” LSD can give bona fide realizations and revelations. In Moreno’s opinion, this is LSD Advocacy, clear and simple.

LSD Advocate Robert Priddy Refers Readers To A Pro-Drug Website:

Attempting to bolster the case for his experimentation with LSD, Robert Priddy posted the following link on his Anti-Baba blog:

Robert Priddy Cited A Pro-Drug Forum Intended For Drug Users

Robert Priddy Cited A Pro-Drug Forum Intended For Drug Users

Robert Priddy: For objective source materials and intelligent discussions of LSD-25, see this major Forum

Since “scholar” Robert Priddy (who always boasts how thorough his research is) provided a link to drugs-forum.com (and described it as being “objective” and providing “intelligent discussions of LSD-25”), he apparently researched the site thoroughly and approved of its contents.

Let us take a closer look at drugs-forum.com, a website Robert Priddy described as “objective” and providing “intelligent discussions of LSD-25”.

First and foremost, drugs-forum.com is an international Pro-Drug website where users can request and/or share information on how to take, grow, purchase, make and use all types of illegal drugs, including LSD-25 (Refs: 010203 or View Entire LSD Threads). All of these LSD-related threads prove that the discussions therein are far removed from being “objective” and do not provide “intelligent discussions on LSD-25” (unless you happen to be a drug addict).

Drugs-forum.com provides numerous threads advocating for legalizing all types of drugs (Ref) and even provides threads about which drugs maximize sexual experiences (Ref). Drugs-forum.com also provides picture galleries so that users can identify hallucinogenic mushrooms, peyote, opiods, hallucinogenic cacti and hallucinogenic plants (Ref). A majority of the posts on the drugs-forum.com domain are chock full of invectives and graphic language. This is the type of Pro-Drug forum that “scholar” Robert Priddy described as being “objective” and providing “intelligent discussions on LSD-25”!

Robert Priddy revealed his drug advocacy and revealed his standards for “objectivity” and “intelligent discussion” by citing a Pro-Drug forum full of invectives that is intended for drug users!

So when Robert Priddy said “I have not endorsed the contents of the forum, nor do I advocate the use of LSD-25!”, he is lying through his teeth. Robert Priddy fully endorsed the contents of Drugs-forum.com and openly boasted that it contained “objective” information about LSD-25 and provided “intelligent discussions of LSD-25”.

After Moreno published his article about Robert Priddy’s loud endorsement of drugs-forum.com, a Pro-Drug Forum intended for drug users (which he described as containing “objective source materials and intelligent discussions of LSD-25”), Robert Priddy rushed to do damage control (just as Moreno predicted he would) and removed the link to drugs-forum.com and said:

Robert Priddy Removes Link To Pro-Drug Website Intended For Drug Users

Robert Priddy Removes Link To Pro-Drug Website Intended For Drug Users

Robert Priddy: “Please note: Having looked more closely at the web pages on LSD-25 I had first linked to here I found them partly very misleading and that there was an overall bias towards possibly dangerous viewpoints, though there was also nonetheless a good deal of accurate historical and other materials in them and/or linked to them. As a whole those pages do not represent my standpoint, therefore the link is deleted”

“Scholar” Robert Priddy (who constantly claims he conducts thorough research) argued that drugs-forum.com (a Pro-Drug Forum intended for drug users) contained “objective source materials and intelligent discussions of LSD-25”). Now, however, Robert Priddy is claiming that his initial assessment of drugs-forum.com was wrong and the website is not as “objective” or as ”intelligent” as he first assessed it to be.

Robert Priddy has yet to specifically tell us which webpages on drugs-forum.com (a Pro-Drug Forum intended for drug users) contained a “good deal of accurate historical and other materials in them and/or linked to them”?

Robert Priddy would have the world believe that LSD is simply a great “mind clearer” that produces out-of-body experiences that result in enlightenment and visions of broken bones sticking out of bloody flesh!

Let readers decide if all these facts are indicative of LSD advocacy or not.

And far be it for Robert Priddy to whine and snivel about “libels” and “fanatical personal attacks and character assassination” when he has openly resorted to screencap fraud against Gerald Moreno and has falsely and fraudulently accused Gerald Moreno of being sexually molested by Sathya Sai Baba!

UPDATE: May 27th 2010

Just one day after Robert Priddy hissed about NOT being an LSD advocate, what did he do? Robert Priddy glorified his LSD-induced hallucinations in an article he wrote about Yaani Drucker and said (click thumbnail to enlarge):

More LSD Advocacy By Robert Priddy

More LSD Advocacy By Robert Priddy

Robert Priddy: “I experienced infinity, intense sweet bliss and paranormal intuition of minds and much more when I was 26.”

Robert Priddy is clearly referring to his LSD-induced hallucinations that he had when he was 26 years old. Even 46 years later, Robert Priddy is still describing his LSD-induced hallucinations in glowing and effusive ways that are 100% indicative of his LSD advocacy. Why doesn’t Robert Priddy just state the truth of the matter and say he hallucinated on LSD and those experiences were figments of his imagination and no one should use LSD at all? Robert Priddy will not say these things because he ADVOCATES for the integrity of LSD and he ADVOCATES for the experiences he had while tripping on it.

LSD Advocate Robert Priddy – Lies & Anti-Sais:

Needless to say, LSD advocate Robert Priddy has a long and established history of distortions, lies, defamations and libels.

Of course, none of these things are surprising considering that Robert Priddy is an LSD Advocate who is thoroughly obsessed with genital oilings and who relishes projecting his homoerotic fantasies onto Moreno. Robert Priddy is allied with Bisexual & Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson and Child Porn Purveyor RFJ Sandt and Perverted Fetishist Sanjay Dadlani. Robert Priddy is also a staunch promoter of New Age Advocate & Reincarnator Alan Kazlev and Guru & UFO Promoter Timothy Conway (who actually believes that Sathya Sai Baba may have molested alleged victims like aliens are alleged to do through abductions!).

The only people guilty of running “massive disinformation and cover-up campaigns” are Robert Priddy and Ex-Devotees who have attacked hundreds of Sai Devotees & Non-Devotees alike and who have created hundreds of webpages to defame, libel and smear Gerald Joe Moreno. What more can one do but laugh at loud at Robert Priddy and his hypocritical finger-pointing?
