Description


"In an insightful and often humorous fashion, Richie Graham depicts daily life on an 1970's B.F. Skinner Walden Two-inspired commone where egalitarianism is the norm for work and play. It's an exciting page turner that is difficult to put down." -John Darby, former Dandelion member

"Tell me about the orgies "

What was it like living in a commune? Were there wild orgies? How did they get along sharing everything from food to partners? Find out what commune life was really about. A true, unvarnished account.

Based on B.F. Skinner's book Walden Two, many of these egalitarian communes dotted the Americas. Literally, tens of thousands of people visited communities in the Federation of Egalitarian Communities, and thousands more lived in one of these communities. Twin Oaks in Virginia and East Wind in Missouri are still in existence today.

Why did Richie Graham join Dandelion? "After reading Walden Two and studying behavioral psychology, I was ready for a change. For far too long I had felt like a 'cultural mutant.' At Dandelion we often referred to ourselves as 'cultural mutants' mostly in a lighthearted way, but there was some truth to it."
