In The Perfectionist Society followed the belief of complex marriage. The society was created with the belief that individual human's fails could be fixed through collective correction. What criticism of American society did John have? What methods did the person use to improve American life? What success did the individual have in promoting reform? John Noyes was successful in promoting reform, by creating his own utopian society, the Oneida Perfectionists. They were successful, because the group created an image of society.

Sharing Noyes was exceptionally radical and therefore probably obsessed. Was the reformer obsessed with achieving an impractical goal? Was the reformer
fanatical or impractical ? In the early decades of the 20th century, Noyes' son Pierrepont consolidated the Community's industries and focused solely on silverware production. The company became known as Oneida Limited and was the largest producer of flatware in the world for much of the 20th century. The Community's second communal dwelling, the 93,000-square-foot (8,600 m2) brick "mansion house", survives today as a multi-use facility encompassing a museum, apartments, dormitory housing, guest rooms, and meeting and banquet facilities.
