Morehouse

About: lafayette morehouse: course descriptions

At one time Larry Dodson was interested in the Morehouse concept of a commune. Apparently the leader, Victor Baranco , was taking old Victorians in San Francisco & having people live in them for free as long as they fixed them up. This was similar to Project II except that those that lived in them didn’t own them at all. One interesting feature of the community living was that everyone would maintain a public list of what they wanted. Others would try to satisfy these wants (which were often about sex with someone in the community).  Victor has been dead since 2002, according to his 2nd wife’s website; his seminars & such is maintained by his wife. Their courses sound like the curriculum hasn’t changed much.

Somewhere in the perusal of the google links I also found this [website: uri http://www.communalstudies.info/]; Amazing that there are journals about these communities.

It is true there is More University, which has been an accredited institution for 15 years. I have nothing personal against their ideologies and the fact that they have existed for so long means the community is generally accepted by various circles I just think the whole community is full of perverts who have found a satisfying their needs!

Apparently there is also a Wikipedia article on the group here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lafayette_Morehouse .  I can't say much more than it was a typical urban hippie commune at the time my friend Larry attended a class there. Things evolve & change & some degrade - like the society we have nowadays.
