Dr Wilhelm Reich "Organized conspiracy (FDA) sent him to prison and then killed him."Submitted by Steeped'nTyranny on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 10:29
"The Emotional Plague is a term coined by Dr Wilhelm Reich in the 1930's to describe fascism and human emotional illness. Eventually, he used the term to describe simple 'mass reactions' in groups, and persistent functional problems in all human interactions."
From chapter 16 of Dr Reich's book ‘Character Analysis’:
"The term “emotional plague” is not a derogatory phrase. It does not connote conscious malevolence, moral or biological degeneracy, immorality, etc. An organism whose natural mobility has been continually thwarted from birth develops artificial forms of movement. It limps or walks on crutches. In the same way, a man goes through life on the crutches of the emotional plague when the natural self-regulating life expressions are suppressed from birth. The person afflicted with the emotional plague limps characterologically."
Dr Reich was murdered by the FDA in 1957 in a federal penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania because Reich refused to appear in court, arguing that no court was in a position to evaluate his work. In a long letter to Judge Clifford, Reich wrote:
"My factual position in the case as well as in the world of science of today does not permit me to enter the case against the Food and Drug Administration, since such action would, in my mind, imply admission of the authority of this special branch of the government to pass judgment on primordial, pre-atomic cosmic orgone energy. I, therefore, rest the case in full confidence in your hands."
Dr. Elsworth F. Baker, a physician friend, said at his funeral, "Once in a thousand years, nay once in two thousand years, such a man comes upon this earth to change the destiny of the human race. As with all great men, distortion, falsehood, and persecution followed him. He met them all, until organized conspiracy sent him to prison and then killed him."
Another enlightening source of information and a compelling read on Dr Reich is the book by Myron Sharaf titled "Fury on Earth". Sharaf was Reich's assistant from 1948 to 1954.
We have been given another chance with Dr Paul! Dr Reich was an Austrian-American Libertarian and though his approach differed from Dr Paul's the end results are the same.
