Charles Manson and "The Family"
By Maddie Owen and Lexi McCoy
Early Life of Charles Manson and the Manson Family
Looking Glass Self
The Family saw what they had done on the news, newspapers, and headlines. Charles Manson fed off of their anonymous fame and got thrill out of what they were doing. He was also very manipulative because he would never actually carry out any of the crimes, he would just direct them and lead them in the right path so he felt as though his hands were clean.
The family is an example of a total institution because they are completely cut off from the real world and are controlled and manipulated by Charles Manson.
When Charles Manson goes to jail, not only does he loses contact with all of his followers, his followers are lost and have no idea what to do without him, because he’s been controling them for so long.
