    • Synopsis
    • The untold story of the 1st ever drug rehab that almost reached Utopia and then went down the slippery slope to becoming the most violent cult in American history. No cult related story or story concerning any drug rehab can compare. It is also the story of Paul Morantz who in 1977 used the legal system and the media to warn the world about the existence of cults. The first to do so. By the 1980s Morantz made it the number 1 topic in the world. He also warned of the existence of brainwashing as well as explaining the system. For his efforts, he was bitten by a 4 ½ foot Rattlesnake, sans rattles, placed in his mailbox by a Synanon hit team called the Imperial Marines. They had made 87 a tax including 3 attempted murders.
