Wilhelm Reich

Geburtstag: 24. März 1897
Todesdatum: 3. November 1957

Wilhelm Reich war ein österreichisch-US-amerikanischer Arzt, Psychiater, Psychoanalytiker, Sexualforscher und Soziologe. Reich fand Zusammenhänge zwischen psychischen und muskulären Panzerungen und entwickelte die Therapiemethode der Psychoanalyse zur Charakteranalyse und diese zur Vegetotherapie weiter. Letztere gilt als Grundlage für verschiedene später begründete Körperpsychotherapien.

Seine parallel dazu durchgeführten mikrobiologischen Forschungen führten ihn zur „Entdeckung des Orgons“, einer „primordialen“ Energie, deren Existenz außerhalb von Reichs Schülerkreis nicht anerkannt wurde und auch heute nicht anerkannt wird.

Zitate Wilhelm Reich

„Der Faschismus wird auch heute noch, infolge des politischen Fehldenkens, als eine spezifische Nationaleigenschaft der Deutschen oder der Japaner aufgefaßt. […] Der Faschismus ist eine internationale Erscheinung, die sämtliche Körperschaften der menschlichen Gesellschaft aller Nationen durchsetzt.“

„The kindly individual believes that all people are kindly and act accordingly. The plague individual believes that all people lie, swindle, steal and crave power.“

—  Wilhelm Reich, buch Listen, Little Man!
Listen, Little Man! (1948), Context: The kindly individual believes that all people are kindly and act accordingly. The plague individual believes that all people lie, swindle, steal and crave power. Clearly, then, the living is at a disadvantage and in danger.

„It remains to be seen what part politics will play in the eradication of the political emotional plague and what part the consciously organized functions of love, work and knowledge.“

—  Wilhelm Reich, buch Die Massenpsychologie des Faschismus
The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933), Ch. 10 : Work Democracy, Context: For a decade, the politics of the European dictators was unrivalled. In order to comprehend the essence of politics, one only has to remember that it was a Hitler who, for many years, was able to keep the world breathless. Hitler as a political genius was a magnificent unmasking of the essence of politics in general. With Hitler, politics reached the peak of its development. We know what were its fruits and what was the reaction of the world. In brief, I believe that the twentieth century, with its gigantic catastrophes, ushers in a new social era, an era free of politics. It remains to be seen what part politics will play in the eradication of the political emotional plague and what part the consciously organized functions of love, work and knowledge. Section 3 : Work Democracy versus Politics. The Natural Social Forces for the Mastery of the Emotional Plague.

„In its pure form, fascism is the sum total of all irrational reactions of the average human character.“

—  Wilhelm Reich, buch Die Massenpsychologie des Faschismus
The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933), Context: In its pure form, fascism is the sum total of all irrational reactions of the average human character. To the narrow-minded sociologist who lacks the courage to recognize the enormous role played by the irrational in human history, the fascist race theory appears as nothing but an imperialistic interest or even a mere "prejudice." The violence and the ubiquity of these "race prejudices" show their origin from the irrational part of the human character. The race theory is not a creation of fascism. No: fascism is a creation of race hatred and its politically organized expression. Correspondingly, there is a German, Italian, Spanish, Anglo-Saxon, Jewish and Arabian fascism. Preface to the Third Edition (August 1942)<!---->

„It was seeing the science-fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still, about a spaceman who comes to Earth in a flying saucer to save us from self-destruction in a nuclear war.“

—  Wilhelm Reich
Contact with Space (1957), Context: On March 20, 1956, 10 P. M. a thought of a very remote possibility entered my mind, which I fear will never leave me again. Am I a spaceman? Do I belong to a new race on earth, bred by men from outer space in embraces with earth women? Are my children offspring of the first interplanetary race? Has the melting-pot of interplanetary society already been created on our own planet, as the melting-pot of all earth nations was established in the U. S. A. 190 years ago? … What inspired this thought? It was seeing the science-fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still, about a spaceman who comes to Earth in a flying saucer to save us from self-destruction in a nuclear war. … All through the film I had a distinct impression that it was a bit of "my story" which was depicted there, even the actor's expressions and looks reminded me and others of myself as I had appeared 15 to 20 years ago.

„In the strictly Marxist sense, there is not even in Soviet Russia a state socialism but a state capitalism.“

—  Wilhelm Reich, buch Die Massenpsychologie des Faschismus
The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933), Context: In the strictly Marxist sense, there is not even in Soviet Russia a state socialism but a state capitalism. According to Marx, the social condition "capitalism" does not consist in the existence of individual capitalists, but in the existence of the specific "capitalist mode of production", that is, in the production of exchange values instead of use values, in wage work of the masses and in the production of surplus value, which is appropriated by the state or the private owners, and not by the society of working people. In this strictly Marxist sense, the capitalistic system continues to exist in Russia. And it will continue to exist as long as the masses of people continue to lack responsibility and to crave authority. Preface to the Third Edition (August 1942)

„See yourself as you really are.“

—  Wilhelm Reich, buch Listen, Little Man!
Listen, Little Man! (1948), Context: See yourself as you really are. Listen to what none of your leaders and representatives dares tell you: You are a "little, common man." Understand the double meaning of these words: "little" and "common." Don't run. Have the courage to look at yourself!

„The cry for freedom is a sign of suppression. It will not cease to ring as long as man feels himself captive.“

—  Wilhelm Reich, buch Die Massenpsychologie des Faschismus
The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933), Ch. 10 : Work Democracy, Context: The cry for freedom is a sign of suppression. It will not cease to ring as long as man feels himself captive. As diverse as the cries for freedom may be, basically they all express one and the same thing: The intolerability of the rigidity of the organism and of the machine-like institutions which create a sharp conflict with the natural feelings for life. Not until there is a social order in which all cries for freedom subside will man have overcome his biological and social crippling, will he have attained genuine freedom. Not until man is willing to recognize his animal nature — in the good sense of the word — will he create genuine culture. Section 3 : Work Democracy versus Politics. The Natural Social Forces for the Mastery of the Emotional Plague; Variant translation: The cry for freedom is a sign of suppression. It will never cease as long as man feels himself to be trapped. No matter how different the cries for freedom may be, at bottom they always express one and the same thing: the intolerableness of the organism's rigidity and the mechanical institutions of life, which are sharply at variance with the natural sensations of life. ... Not until man acknowledges that he is fundamentally an animal, will he be able to create a genuine culture.
