Storyboard Text

  • I like Oneida! I feel like I'm free from societal and gender role pressure and get to live free how I want my life to be! This is what Jesus would have wanted!
  • I know! I'm not forced to follow a tradition that would restrict my own personal freedom!
  • Hey ladies! Want to practice "free love"?
  • Welcome to the Amana Colony! Here we German Immigrants work together in this commune to achieve societal peace and harmony! Equal pay, equal work, equal everything!
  • Wow, an economic system established by a German in which everyone shares wealth and labor? Haven't heard that before.
  • New Harmony! It shall be a socalis- I mean a Utopian Society where everyone is equal! What could possibly go wrong?
  • I shall create a community where there's no need for materialism and currency, just cooperation and equal work for all! No one shall be above nor below anybody! 
  • Wow Mr. Owen sounds great! What shall this commune be called?
  • Meanwhile, in New Harmony
  • Wow this place sucks, it's not making enough to provide us with simple needs
  • Utopia my ass! This place can't function right! I'm out! Screw Robert Owen and his false promises!
  • I'm out too, Hopefully, there's a utopian community that's not as bad as this place.
  • I know, what's the point of working if it won't get us anywhere
  • Meanwhile, in Brook Farm
  • The financial stability of this place is in shackles and you expect me to work more hours in this failing garbage? 
  • Hmph! All this work and no profits! This isn't a Utopia, it's unpaid labor!
  • Whoever thought of this economic communal system is a sham!
  • We all get the same hours and pay. Come on! We have to work as a community!
  • Everyone's equal I guess?
  • What? Don't look at me! I was inspired by the ideas of that French guy Charles Fourier sitting next to me! Not my fault his Socialist Utopia is flawed!
  • Shut up Marx
  • *Note: This interaction isn't historically accurate*
