Utopia? As Olin describes it, Synanon sounds more like a dreadful futuristic fun house out of A Clockwork Orange: this weird crew of ex-alcoholics, addicts, and criminals mingling with bourgeois dreamers (Olin himself is an architect) in a plastic New Jerusalem

Utopia? As Olin describes it, Synanon sounds more like a dreadful futuristic fun house out of A Clockwork Orange: this weird crew of ex-alcoholics, addicts, and criminals mingling with bourgeois dreamers (Olin himself is an architect) in a plastic New Jerusalem. It's pure California-radical, hip, histrionic. The sacramental core of Synanon is ""the Game,"" a vicious but supposedly therapeutic verbal orgy where 8-15 people pretend they're Don Rickles and take turns shredding one another with a barrage of obscene, jargon-filled mockery.

Utopia is a work of fiction and socio-political satire by Thomas More (1478–1535), written in Latin and published in 1516. The book is a frame narrative primarily depicting a fictional island society and its religious, social, and political customs. Many aspects of More's description of Utopia are reminiscent of life in monasteries. The title De optimo rei publicae statu deque nova insula Utopia literally translates, "Of a republic's best state and of the new island Utopia".

Arrived immediately, and as advertised. Very pleased. Thanks

The service was great, but it's a boring book. It's more of a personal diary than an a documentary. There wasn't even an escape. I just don't understand the drug heads who dominated the pages. I only read about 60 pages and then let it go except for spot reading here and there. I bought it because it's author was a classmate of mine in the school of architecture at Ohio State in the early fifties.
????????????????????????
Another perhaps look at Synanon. Have not read this, would refer anyone looking for a comprehensive look at that group to - From Miracle to Madness, by Paul Marantz. There are lots of PR books written about this group - that are not reality. Synanon was a cult. That was written about (with the cult leaders approval), many times. It spawned the 'tough love' movement, for kids, mostly :( It's interesting that the owner of a group where at least 40 plus kids killed themselves is now ambassador to Italy, because - idk, follow the money :( I guess.
Opilar
Mention Synanon today and most people will give you a totally blank stare, even those in the drug rehab movement. This is unfortunate. Olin's book "Escape from Utopia" is the best I have read on the subject. Olin was a participant in the Synanon Game and moved in to become a lifestyler. Utilizing the brutal honesty he learned playing "The Game" to its utmost, he writes this labor of love with as much clarity as he can bring to what seemed to be the promise of Utopia that burned and crashed in such a painfully devastating way. The book is even better when read from the perspective of so many years later, when the influence of Synanon can be seen in the drug rehabilitation movement even today without anyone even being aware of it. It raises lots of questions for someone like me.
This book is out of print, but if you can find it, it is a very important book.
