Thought Bremer would be the assassin, not the Manson family but anyhow cool wikiboxes.
The Manson Family in this timeline was a lot less active in 1968-1969 (Sharon Tate, for example, was not murdered). However, a much more violent and planned out version of Helter Skelter instead took place from 1970-1972. Ultimately, it failed, but the impacts to politics and the music industry were more significant.
 
The Black Lodge

The origins of the Black Lodge are somewhat mysterious. Most attribute the creation of the Black Lodge to the demon king Chernabog, also known as the Black Thing or the Dark One in his more incomprehensible forms. Chernabog is said to have created the Black Lodge as part of his effort to restore reality to its primal nonexistent state. He viewed the shadow of oblivion as superior to the light of existence and sought to roll it back. However, Chernabog also wished to punish those who ruined the ‘perfection’ of oblivion and thus made it so those legions that followed him in the Lodge proper would feed off of human misery and suffering. Of course, this is just one potential account of the origins of the Black Lodge. Nyarlathotep and his acolytes the Chaos Gods have also been accused of being behind the creation of the Black Lodge as a tool to further their ends. The existence of the counterpart the White Lodge has led to some to conclude that the Black Lodge simply exists to embody evil and came into being with the universe, along with the conceptions of good embodied by the White Lodge. People who believe this attribute the creation of the Lodges to a variety of figures—the Lord of Nightmares, the Black and White Guardians or the Forces of Law and Chaos being commonly attributed sources for them both.

Whatever the origin, the influence of the Black Lodge certainly is significant. The Black Lodge has drawn a number of followers in the material world to aid them in achieving their aims. The earliest known acolyte of the Black Lodge is the dark lord Morgoth, who terrorized Europe in the Hyborian Age. Morgoth was an immensely powerful figure and his acolyte Sauron likewise sought to spread the darkness of the Black Lodge before he was defeated by his enemies. While he was the first, he would be far from the last follower of the Black Lodge to terrorize the world. These figures could vary considerably in nature. The Order of Aurelius was formed by vampiric worshippers of the beings of the Black Lodge and sought to subjugate humanity to please them. The Black Lodge takes a major joy in corrupting people into vicious murderers-Leland Palmer, Michael Myers, Johann Liebert and Oh Sangwoo are but a fraction of those whom have, wittingly or unwittingly, been led to kill on behalf of the Lodge. A number of history’s evil magicians were acolytes of the Black Lodge as well, including Kulan Gath, Koschei the Deathless and according to some accounts Mordred. The dreaded Horned King, a widely feared necromancer, also is believed to have been a devotee of the Black Lodge. Many infamous dark magicians and evil witches have also been at least part-time devotees of the Black Lodge, including the Sanderson sisters, Amos Hacksaw and Pacha Camac. Their reach is not limited to Earth either, with their servants in the stars including the Shadow Galactica, the Sith and the Shadows.

The Black Lodge additionally sent residents of their realm to the world to corrupt it. The entity known as Pitch Black, for instance, was sent to corrupt the Shinto gods when they faced extinction at the hands of industrialization in Japan. The infamous Randall Flagg was long associated with various kinds of demons or even Nyarlathotep himself, but in fact is a servant of the Black Lodge sent to the Earth to terrorize the place. The species known as Minions are thought to have originated from the Black Lodge, though they took on a will of their own that has in more recent times drifted away from the goals of the Black Lodge. The shapeshifting spider known as Pennywise in its most notable incarnation is another servant dispatched to the mortal plane to carry out the Lodge’s bidding. Another species that is thought to have originated from within the Black Lodge are the Weeping Angels, a race of beings that feed off of futures that are aborted when they transport people to points in the past. The primary argument for their origins as servants of the Black Lodge is their feeding off of detrimental impacts they have and their otherwise mysterious nature. However, these claims have not been confirmed and may in fact be unable to be confirmed. The forces of the Black Lodge also are capable of feats of necromancy, with results ranging from the ghosts of the Overlook Hotel and the vengeful spirit of Elly Kenward to the serial killer Jason Voorhees and the reanimated Deadite hordes that have at times terrorized the world.

The inhabitants of the Black Lodge are to an extent surrounded in mystery in part owing to the apparent lack of clear temporal or dimensional boundaries for the Black Lodge and its inhabitants. Nonetheless some elements have been discerned. Within the Black Lodge are two powerful entities that may be the de facto rulers: the Scarlet (or Crimson) King and the King in Yellow. Both are generally malevolent, but at times war with each other for dominance within the Black Lodge. The Scarlet/Crimson King is associated with the color red and has a number of cults active on Earth. Many who encounter the Scarlet/Crimson King associate the Black Lodge with red rather than the typical black. The King in Yellow is not as flashy as the Scarlet/Crimson King, preferring to manipulate the world from the shadows rather than establish clear cults. Immediately below the Kings are the Lords in Black—5 entities claiming to be deities with powers over aspects of reality. Beneath the Lords are a number of demonic beings who can interact with the world via dreams and possession of humans. The being known as BOB is one of the most notorious of these beings, but others exist as well. The dream-walking serial killer Freddy Krueger is in fact a former prisoner of the Black Lodge who was granted powers after becoming a servant of theirs. Other examples of these inhabitants include the Obsidian Lord, Art the Clown, the Cenobites, the Babadook, the Violencia and the Voidbringers. The entity known as the End of the Cycle, responsible for bringing ruin on a galactic scale, has been alleged to be the joint creation of the Black Lodge’s two kings, though this remains unconfirmed.

The Black Lodge is not without opposition. Some of this opposition came from within the Lodge itself. The entity known as The Giant and the lone sister of the Lords of Black are two beings who originated with the Black Lodge and ended up defecting to the White Lodge. The White Lodge, ruled by Maturin the Space Turtle, is the main hub of opposition to the actions of the Black Lodge. The White Lodge operates in parallel to the Black Lodge in many respects, having its own chosen champions work to challenge the Black Lodge’s servants in their efforts to corrupt the world. These champi ms include Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which, the Ellimist, the Skull Knight and Zordon all have worked to advance the White Lodge against the Black Lodge’s own chosen champions. They have enjoyed several triumphs over the years-most notably totally taking control of the afterlife realms dubbed ‘the Good Place’ and ‘the Bad Place’ by inhabitants the two lodges had nominally cooperated to form. World affairs have at times been driven by this conflict-in the First World War, the White Lodge’s followers on Earth under the leadership of Cyril Grey backed the Entente while the Black Lodge’s aligned dark magicians under Heinrich Kemmler supported the Central Powers. The propensity of the Black Lodge to challenge the laws of time mean they often run afoul of those seeking to maintain a clear and consistent timeline. The Time Lords were often opposed to the Black Lodge prior to the Time War and the Time Baby has also frequently warred with the Black Lodge as well. Not all dark entities are aligned with the Black Lodge either. The being known as the Slender Man has been known to fight with entities of a known origin in the Black Lodge, despite also being generally malevolent. The forces of Hell also tend not to take kindly to the Black Lodge and view it as a threat to their plans, much like the Great Old Ones. The would-be Antichrist Damien Thorn at one point sought to carry out a ritual to cut the Black Lodge off from Earth before being thwarted by the Black Lodge servitor Slappy, a particularly humiliating event for Thorn as Slappy was an animate ventriloquist dummy. The Black Lodge also often struggles with the beings known as the Ancient Ones, who have their followers carry out ritual sacrifice using similar forces as the Black Lodge, but seek entertainment above suffering. The Ancient Ones often help their followers bind Black Lodge-connected entities to follow their rituals, thus putting them at odds with the more sadistic Black Lodge.

The Stockholm Massacre or the Rape of Stockholm was the mass murder of Swedish civilians in Stockholm, the capital of the Republic of Sweden, immediately after the Battle of Stockholm in the Second Norwegian-Swedish War, by the Imperial Norwegian Army. Beginning on January 9, 1938, the massacre lasted six weeks. The perpetrators also committed other war crimes such as mass rape, human trafficking, looting, and arson. The massacre was one of the worst atrocities committed during World War II.

The first Norwegian troops reached the city on January 9, and faced little resistance. The massacre began the same day, with Norwegian troops running entirely unchecked. Swedish soldiers were summarily executed in violation of the laws of war. Women and girls were raped en masse and looting was widespread. Due to multiple factors, death toll estimates vary from 40,000 to over 300,000, with rape cases ranging from 20,000 to over 80,000 cases. However, most credible scholars in Norway, which include a large number of authoritative academics, support the validity of the International Military Tribunal of Stavanger, which estimate at least 250,000 murders and at least 40,000 cases of rape.

After the war, the Norwegian commanding officers General Frans Mirvollst and Lieutenant General Aleksander Mervitz were found guilty of war crimes for their actions at Stockholm, and were hanged in 1948. Prince Henrik, as part of the Imperial Family, was granted immunity and never tried. The massacre has remained a wedge issue between modern Sweden and Norway. Historical revisionists and nationalists in Norway have been accused of minimizing or denying the massacre.

Within the context, why did this happen?
 
Within the context, why did this happen?
This is the first half (1868-1945) of a timeline in the early conception phase. Norway gained independence by defeating Sweden in the War of Independence in 1868, but has since embarked on the path of militarism and imperialism. The Empire of Norway first defeated Sweden in the 1895 war for Denmark, capturing the three southwestern provinces of Sweden, Iceland and Greenland; In 1905, he joined forces with Japan to defeat the Russian Empire and plunge Russia into a state of civil war; Denmark was annexed in 1910 and Sweden was almost semi-colonized in 1915. After World War I, the Empire of Norway became a permanent member of the League of Nations and had the fourth largest navy in the world.

However, the Empire of Norway in the 30s, desperate to pass on the crisis in the Great Depression, embarked on the path of fascism joining the Axis powers, trying to annex Sweden and all of Northern Europe, control the northwestern Soviet Union. Finally, in September 1945, exhausted Norway was forced to surrender under the pressure of the Soviet invasion of the mainland and the dropping of nuclear bombs by the United States. After the beginning of the Cold War, Norway and Sweden were divided into two halves by the United States and the Soviet Union along the Leikanger-Stockholm line, with the formation of a "people's republic" in the north and the maintainence/restoration of the monarchy in the south. It was not until the end of the cold war that their respective reunification was restored.

Update: It's a reference on a Japanese AH Novel, Seito.
