A Refutation of Political Misuses of Reich’s Work

Dr. Charles Konia, who is a leader in the American College of Orgonomy, has written an article on his personal website called, “Why Trump is Hated By the Left” (1). He writes:

“From a characterological perspective, Trump belongs somewhere on the political right. His armor is primarily in his musculature not in his intellect as in the case of a leftist. He has a strong moral sense of “right” and “wrong” and probably will not be afraid to use his authority defending his convictions when he feels it necessary to do so.

July 10-14: The Voice of Wilhelm Reich Summer Conference

The Wilhelm Reich Museum is offering a unique opportunity to participate in a conference with Reich himself.

Reich recorded a series of lectures and meetings with his students between 1949 and 1955. Now “The Voice of Wilhelm Reich” will present five of those audio tapes for study and discussion:

  • The importance of Method in Scientific Research and Reich’s Discovery of the Armor
  • Reich Speaks of Freud
  • Problems of A New Medicine
  • The Oranur Experiment
  • Man’s Roots in Nature

The tapes will be introduced by science historian James Strick, Ph.D., author of Wilhelm Reich, Biologist (Harvard U. Press, 2015).

Programs will take place during the morning hours and there will be special evening activities. Afternoons will be free so that participants can vacation in the beautiful Rangeley Lakes Region in the Western Mountains of Maine.
