"Stop this hysterics. This is not the way for people who are Socialists or Communists to die. No way for us to die. We must die with some dignity."
~Jim Jones


James Warren "Jim" Jones (May 13th, 1931 - November 18th, 1978) was the founder of the People's Temple, which was a socialist/communist group. He created a communist sanctuary in Guyana called Jonestown. He is responsible for the deaths of 909 people, 272 of them children, by persuading them to drink Flavor-Aid laced with cyanide, tranquilizers, and other sedatives.
