Don't run. Have the courage to look at yourself!—Wilhelm Reich, Little Man.
For over a year now i’ve resisted writing about, or giving energy to DonTrump, the Donald Trump campain, and his fanatical hordes of supporters. Perhaps i was wrong to ignore him? Maybe i should have started writing and warning my friends about him sooner? But how many of my friends are Trump supporters, how many would read these words and act upon them, who would follow the links that i recommend?
Flyting: Selected Writings
by Steven James Pratt
Everything related to the emotional plague in social life can be traced back to this incapacity and lack of consciousness. It is work-democracy's contention that, by its very nature, politics is and has to be unscientific, i.e., that it is an expression of human helplessness, poverty, and suppression.--Wilhelm Reich, The Function of the orgasm.
"The character structure of modern man, who reproduces a six-thousand-year-old patriarchal authoritarian culture is typified by characterological armoring against his inner nature and against the social misery which surrounds him. This characterolgical armoring of the character is the basis of isolation, indigence, craving for authority, fear of responsibility, mystic longing, sexual misery, and neurotically impotent rebelliousness.—Wilhelm Reich, The Function of the orgasm.
"He (Wilhelm Reich) had a great capacity to arouse irrational hatred obviously, and that's because his ideas were radical in the most extreme sense of the word "radical." His ideas have something to offend everybody, and he ended up becoming the only heretic in American history whose books were literally burned by the government.—Robert Anton Wilson, Interview, March 1995.
Man shows by his maliciousness, his inability to live in peace with his kind, his wars, that what distinguishes him from the other animals is only his unbounded sadism and the mechanical trinity of the authoritarian concept of life, mechanistic science and the machine.--Wilhelm Reich, The Function of the orgasm.
"In addition to his bio-physical heresies, Dr. Reich vastly offended many people by his sociologicaltheory, which holds that fascism is just an exaggerated form of the basic structure of sex-negative societies and has existed under other names in every civilization based on sexual repression. In this theory, the character and muscular armor of the average citizen — a submissive and frightened attitude anchored in body reflexes — causes the average person to want a strong authority figure above them. Tyranny, in this model, is not created by tyrants alone but by neurotic masses who want tyrants.—Robert Anton Wilson, Wilhelm Reich In Hell.
