Review by James DeMeo, PhD

For those interested in Cold War history or the biography of Wilhelm Reich, especially as regarding the issue of Marxist influences within European and American psychoanalysis and psychiatry, and who was behind the major attacks against Reich during both his European and American periods of work, this new book Wilhelm Reich and the Cold War by James Martin will be an eye-opener. For many years, the "collective consensus" on who was responsible for Reich’s demise in the USA — where he was subjected to public slander and undeserved ridicule, his books and research journals being banned and burned by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with Reich dying in prison for daring to defend his findings — has always been too-neatly blamed on "right-wing McCarthyites", "antisemitism" or "conservative Christian" elements within American society. No hard proof was ever offered for such assertions, but nearly all of Reich’s major biographers expressed such views, as Martin points out, given their own liberal or left-wing political biases.

Martin was the first to seriously investigate the backgrounds of Reich’s major detractors and the circles they travelled in. In so doing, he shattered many myths. His book details the personal history of those detractors, and how they influenced the powerful FDA, which eventually launched a flawed and fraudulent "investigation" of Reich. As the attacks mounted against him, Reich wrote that the attacks were coming from Communists (capital "C") or even Soviet agents whom he denounced as "Moscow Hooligans", something which his modern biographers claimed was evidence of a loss of clarity or outright paranoia. After all, the American and European political left-wing had denounced the fear of Soviet Communism as a "collective right-wing paranoia", about a supposedly non-existent "communist bogeyman". The fact that the Soviet Communists and their various regional Communist Party groups had engineered massive genocides around the world, with 100 million victims during the 20th Century alone, was hardly permitted into discussion. Mostly it has been conservative writers who brought forth that documentation. Reich was also ignorant of this Marxist/Communist blood-lust(1) during his early years when he supported the Marxist causes.

Martin covers Reich’s early work over the period when, in opposition to growing Nazism, he joined the Austrian and later German Communist Party — both would eventually kick him out of their organizations for failing to rigidly follow Marxist dogma. Reich argued against "class warfare" rhetoric and in favor of basic human freedom and the needs for reform of existing sexual and family law, to make contraception, abortion and divorce legal, and to support abandoned mothers with children. His advocacy of responsible adolescent and premarital sexual freedom (as well as his opposition to pornography and child-molesters) was the breaking point between Reich and the Communist organizations, who accused him of "distracting youth from the revolutionary cause". Reich responded by pointing out how the supposedly "New Man of the Soviet Proletariat" was just as neurotic and sexually impotent as the "old man" of capitalism. This clash led to the banning of Reich’s writings from the Communist Party bookstores. After witnessing the many betrayals of life and freedom by the European Communists, Reich turned away from them. The Nazis also attacked Reich from the get-go, burning his books. Soon enough he wrote that the "Red Fascism" of the Communist Party was functionally identical to the "Black Fascism" of the Nazi Party, with severe criticisms of both Stalin and Hitler. For such writings, Reich attracted the fury of both the extreme Left and Right. Reich had always been anti-Nazi, and by the time of his American period, he had become decidedly anti-Communist.

The charge that Reich had gone "paranoid", was also promoted by many on the Marxist left by claiming his later unorthodox scientific research was prima-facia evidence for it. His exceptionally good work on cancer and biogenesis, his discovery of the bions, the orgone energy accumulator and orgone energy continuum, the cloudbuster, and inquiry into the UFO question, all were dismissed as "lunacy" by Nazi and Communist writers during his lifetime. Persisting attacks and ridicules continue today by predominantly leftist and a few right-wing writers.(2)

Today we know Reich’s cancer research, his discovery of the bions, the orgone accumulator and cloudbuster are legitimate natural science, the result of serious clinical and experimental investigations, and confirmed in various books and research articles authored by other scientists who have replicated those investigations. Biogenesis is today no longer a taboo subject, space between the stars is no longer considered so "empty", and the UFO phenomenon is also accepted as a legitimate subject for scientific investigation. And from various Cold War histories, we know how the American government was infiltrated by numerous Soviet spies and Communist sympathizers during much of the 20th Century. From Martin’s new book, it is now proven that Reich’s charges about influential Soviet spies working to destroy him were also accurate and true.

As the sub-title of the Martin book reveals, the American Communists and Marxists got help in Reich’s destruction from various government hoodlums (in the FDA and US Courts), and from the many psychoanalysts and psychiatrists who hated Reich since his European day. They never approved of his rejection of Freud’s dogmas about an unproven "death instinct", or his critique on the supposed biological nature of the Oedipus Complex. They were further troubled by his Sex-Pol work, at a time when Nazi Brownshirts were smashing up people who dared to do such things. Their anger at Reich persisted into his American period, when they also fled to America for refuge from the European nightmare. Their collective fury at Reich extended way beyond honest criticism, however, straying as a rule into sexual slander and character assassination, as well as typical back stabbing and dirty tricks.

Martin documents those attacks, which others have done to a lesser extent, but he goes a quantum leap further to investigate and document the backgrounds of Reich’s major detractors. Mildred Brady, for example, who wrote major slander articles against Reich in the popular New Republic and Harpers magazines, triggered a tidal wave of copy-cat articles (2), which misguided an entire generation of Americans into wrongly believing Reich was the master of some kind of "sex-cult", promoting the orgone accumulator as the "orgasm box" or as a "cancer cure" — none of it was true, but no matter, the same lies get repeated even today by modern "journalists".

Martin documents how Mildred and her husband Robert Brady were both closely tied to one of the most effective Soviet spy rings working in the USA, led by Nathan Gregory Silvermaster. Robert Brady wrote books and articles praising Stalinism (even after the Hitler-Stalin Pact) and called for the extermination of "bourgeois" Americans. He asserted American capitalism was "no different from Nazism", and wrote similar alarming things in support of the Soviet Union, even after the Hitler-Stalin Pact. His wife Mildred became a cloaked Stalinist agent within the nascent American consumers’ movement. As a top administrator of the then-communist lobby group, Consumers’ Union (today publishing Consumers Report magazine), she wrote drafts for laws later adopted by the FDA, allowing for police actions against natural healing methods, herbal medicine, and unorthodox physicians like Wilhelm Reich.

Martin recounts how both Mildred and Robert Brady had been exposed in prior years as Soviet agents, during hearings led by Rep. Martin Dies of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. After being exposed, they were fired from their jobs within the Roosevelt-era Office of Price Administration, some years before linking up with the New Republic, which at the time of their firing had praised them as martyrs to the Socialist cause. When Mildred ran the West coast branch of Consumers’ Union, she and her husband were both in communications with, and attending dinner parties with the Silvermaster spy group, Silvermaster himself being a former university student of Robert Brady. Mildred also had meetings with Robert Oppenheimer, head of the US atomic bomb program — incidents which figured centrally into Oppenheimer’s later loss of Top Secret clearances, and removal from that program. All this was documented in FBI files, as Martin shows, which included testimony of eye-witnesses and transcriptions of wire-tapped telephone calls. The same gal who worked to destroy Reich also went snooping for atomic secrets.

When Mildred penned her defamatory articles against Reich in the New Republic, it was in service to the then Editor of NR, the former US Vice-President Henry Wallace, a well known Soviet sympathizer who had been fired by Roosevelt after making too many pro-Soviet speeches. Had Roosevelt died prior to replacing him with Harry Truman, the US would have had a Soviet agent in the top position as US President. The Publisher of NR at the time was another notable Soviet spy, Michael Straight, an American member of the notorious Cambridge spy ring, which included Philby, Blunt, Burgess, Mclean, and others who took atomic bomb and other secrets to the Soviet Union.

All these connections were investigated, documented and exposed by Martin, plus much more.

For example the role of Max Etingon, lawyer of the well-heeled Etingon family which ran a lucrative fur-trading business with Lenin and later Stalin out of the Soviet Union, in financing Freud’s psychoanalytic publications. Meanwhile another, General Leonid Etingon, was an NKVD assassin of anti-Stalinists in Europe. The psychoanalytic Etingon hated Reich and helped get him expelled from the International Psychoanalytic Association, and presumably Reich must have narrowly escaped the attention of the NKVD Etingon, as Reich was put on an NKVD death-list in 1936. Or Arnold Deutsch, a top Soviet spy who at one time helped Reich publish one of his books, and later became a top recruiter of British spies for the Soviet Union, including Philby and the Cambridge spy group. Or Reich’s first wife, Annie Pink Reich, who broke with her husband "Willy" in solidarity with Freud, to become a leading psychoanalyst herself. But not before getting remarried to a top Soviet spy Robert Rubenstein, operating under the pseud. of "Comrade Thomas", who had been in control of millions of Soviet-supplied Reichsmarks, earmarked for destabilizing Hitler’s Germany.

Martin also informs on Arthur Garfield Hays, former lawyer for the Etingon family Soviet fur-exporting business, and Reich’s personal lawyer at the time of the Brady slanders. Hays alarmingly and wrongly advised Reich it would be fruitless to file a lawsuit for defamation against Brady and the New Republic. What he didn’t tell Reich, however, was his working associations and friendship with the Bradys, through his own founding role in the Consumers’ Union. Lawyer Hays was also a top Soviet sympathizer, who had championed Soviet and Communist causes nearly all his adult life.

It was amazing Wilhelm Reich managed to survive his European period, given how so many top Soviet agents were buzzing in and out of the Vienna and Berlin psychoanalytic scene in which he had once been a central participant and leader. And also not surprising that Reich would learn the deadly games played by the Communists, as well as the names of their key players, so as to later identify similar Soviet and Communist agents in the attacks against himself in America, a time when he had become decidedly anti-Communist.

Whatever your opinion of Wilhelm Reich, or of the Cold War in general, Wilhelm Reich and the Cold War has much to recommend it. It is no empty "conspiracy theory", but a biographical narrative and documentation of a very real conspiracy that weaves through many different social circles and world regions. The book is heavily referenced and fully indexed, with a map of Reich’s travels, a photograph section, and documentary appendix reproducing several "smoking gun" documents retrieved from FBI or Soviet archives. Chapter sections are also included on Reich’s Tucson Arizona cloudbuster experiments with desert-greening, where he made rain and UFOs were observed and photographed. Martin’s work plunged straight into lingering controversies, and the documentation he provides rehabilitates Reich from the dark shadows into which his malicious attackers have cast him. At the end of Martin’s presentation of evidence, we find Reich had remained brilliant and clear-minded into the very last days of his life, about his work, and about those who organized and plotted against him.

It should also be mentioned, the first edition of this book, which came out in 1999 in a very limited hardbound edition, was the winner of a Hochberg Award for exceptional new research in orgonomy. If you have the older edition, you will love the 2nd edition even more, for the text revisions, new documentation, new map and other features.

Muslim Terrorists Discover Saharasia

June 20, 2014

Muslim Terrorists Discover Saharasia

Below is a map currently being circulated by the Muslim Jihadi murderers, to much joy and uulating throughout the Islamic world. It is found on numerous Islamic websites, where they openly identify their own territories, plus all borderland regions which at one or another time in history had been conquered by one or another Muslim war-lord, and hence by their reasoning, constitutes "Muslim property". It also includes a lot of territory never previously conquered by Muslims. But to Islamic thinking, these are all "Muslim lands" and are actually "occupied territory" being "unjustly inhabited" by non-believer infidels. Examples would be the "occupying" Spanish, French, Greek, Serbs, Bulgarians, Romanians, Hungarians, Russians, Chinese, Indians, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Animists and various black African tribes, who by Islamic views are merely "temporary inhabitants" or "aboriginal peoples" currently occupying Islamic territory. They are all "occupiers" who, by Islamic thought, must be driven out from those lands, converted into Islam, killed off, or become dhimmi sub-humans and pay the ferocious annual Jidza head-tax, which is the Islamic tribute payment required for non-Muslims to remain alive within "Islamic territory".

Apparently some Muslim warrior discovered how to make a map, and so this is what you get in the way of very effective propaganda, that fuels the heart of every Jihad sadist longing for the "Greater Islam", of a forthcoming New Islamic Caliphate.

Youth across Saharasia are said to be in a state of "transfixed joy" about this turn of affairs in recent weeks, this massive increase in rapine slaughter and butchery as seen on the upsurge in Nigeria, Iraq, Syria and elsewhere. As detailed in Wilhelm Reich’s writings, such as The Mass Psychology of Fascism, their own lives may be ruined and collapsed into loveless desperation, sexual frustration and emotional misery, but the “little man” can feel like a “Big Man”, with a great excitement and explosive boost in morale at the thought of Jihad invading, conquest, slaving and looting. Or just to "teach a lesson" to the non-believers who "insult Islam daily" by their provocative freer and more alive behavior, by their easy relations between the sexes, and by their mere existence.

The youth of Islam have generally been severely crushed by child abuse, extreme heterosexual repression (including high levels of pedophile attacks), totalitarian fascism and murdering of taboo-breakers. Emotionally, they have become so twisted up that normal healthy heterosexual relations are nearly impossible, and eventually just the suggestion of such a possibility elicits intense anxiety and emotional plague reactions. From this comes the urge to spit upon the unveiled woman, to murder the “sexual sinner”, or to throw rocks at passing-by Jews or other infidels. Or to kidnap non-Muslim schoolgirls by the hundreds, as recently happened several times over in Nigeria, for the purposes of sexual slavery. From their own long history of suppression, they have learned to destroy all natural sexual feeling within the self, through religious fanaticism plus the widespread chronic addictions to hashish or qat, which by themselves reinforce head armoring, and elicit a feeling of megalomania and invulnerable superiority. And from that comes great anxiety and rage, with an urge to lash out against that which they cannot ever have, to obliterate anyone or any foreign culture which lives the freer life they cannot have – even while they are preoccupied with sexual longing, or disturbances and fantasies of every kind. Out of this comes the intensive Arab love poetry, and fantasy novels about harem romances, which are as unreal as is the concept of the “noble Islamic warrior”, who in fact history shows is mostly prone to lying, deceit, trickery, torturing of prisoners and murder.

Sexual slavery has been a central part of Islamic history since the very first years of Muhammed, associated with over nearly 1400 years of conquest and looting. Unlike European slavery, or the much shorter period of American slavery, some 90% of all slaves taken by Muslim societies were and are today, young women or pretty-faced boys, to feed the sexual appetites of corrupted sheiks or war-lords, or merely the average camel-herder. The "Princes" of Saudi Arabia may have only four wives, but also scores of concubine slaves inhabit their harems, even today, rotated in and out according to whim or for budgetary reasons. Muslim men on the annual "Haj" pilgrimage to Mecca also can buy a temporary "muta marriage" to a young slave girl for a couple of weeks while there, who cooks and cleans for him, and shares his bed, and for which she is paid a pittance, the whole deal being arranged by mullah slave-brokers. Oh yes, it is "marriage" by strict legal definitions, but what abject misery is inflicted upon the girls, who have no choice in the matter and were purchased from impovershed parents elsewhere. After years of servicing Haj pilgrims, they are left with nothing but a destroyed body, and any children created in the process are destined to join the street beggars, who are abundant within Islamic cities. And such abominations continue, especially so, in the wealthiest of the oil sheikdoms, as they have the free money gathered from oil revenues, for which they never had to lift a finger to get, and which is used to buy slave girls (sometimes under the guise of "house-maids") from all around the world. Their media is tightly controlled, so the world public only gets an occasional glimpse of what goes on, as when desperate “maids” jump from tall buildings to end their miserable existence.

This manner of deadly anti-love existence constitutes a most-favored Islamic utopian paradise, an ideal goal which was also how Muhammed lived, to be a wealthy war-lord with multiple sexual slaves, up to four wives but as many concubines and pretty-boys as you can afford to buy at the slave markets or kidnap from the infidels. Beyond that, you may get a new "muta" marriage in many Muslim cities if you are travelling. And for the poor Jihadi who has not the money to buy slave girls, there are 72 virgin girls waiting in the hereafter.

Not surprisingly, from this deadly brew there is widespread sexual impotence and explosive sadism across the Islamic world, with intensive sexual preoccupations in the thought process. Mullahs, who also serve as war-lords, formulate legal dictates, Jihadi obligations and conquest agendas, all made possible precisely because of the nearly complete and utter destruction of natural heterosexual genitality and love, and the consequent absence of capacities for independent thought. This is so, no matter how many wives, concubines or “muta” sexual slaves a man may buy to force himself upon. And yet, Muslims often hypocritically chide Western democracies as lands “filled with whores and prostitutes”!

The larger point of all this is how sexual behavior and family life determines the larger cultural and social framework, including state structure and religious ideas, and whatever levels of social violence and war which may exist. And for the Islamic world, borne as they were in the harsh deserts of Saharasia, they have proven to be an extremely armored and violent culture-type.

The geographical context also proves this out. The above map of this New Islamic Caliphate, drafted by the Jihadis themselves in 2014, shows a great similarity to the Saharasian maps I prepared in the 1980s, some 35 years earlier, from a global analysis of the standard ethnographic data on human family and sexual life, with attending levels of social violence, in over 1100 world cultures. The Caliphate Map overlaps with, and extends slightly beyond, the larger Saharasian region of the most extreme patrist, armored human societies, as developed years ago in my World Behavior Map.

I would recommend to get my Saharasia book through the above weblink, if you are unfamiliar with the premises and discovery, as it will help to understand the thinking process and actions of the Jihad groups currently pushing to make a new Caliphate.

I’ll repeat the new Islamic Caliphate Map here, for easy comparison.

At least one of the critics of my Saharasia findings claimed, years ago and in opposition to clear evidence already provided in my other writings, that the original Saharasia maps were "valid only for the period of c.1900 AD", but "had no validity for the modern situation". I beg to differ, and offer the new Islamic Caliphate Map, drafted by the Islamic factions themselves, as one of many stark and deadly proofs. It is not merely a map of intended conquest, but conquest under the aegis of Islamic Sharia Law, which is about as anti-sex-economic, anti-sexual freedom and anti-genitality as one could imagine. Their Sharia Law is in fact reflected in the extreme armored patrist definitions presented in my Saharasia work, which was primarily founded upon Wilhelm Reich’s earlier findings and definitions of what armored human societies looked like, and how they behaved.

Saharasia is a world region of immense sexual repression and cruelty, of sexual sadism, misery, and untold violence, which just in the last few weeks has been so busy furiously mass-murdering their current enemy, they finally got the attention of a mostly-sleepy Western world. Usually, the West is happy to ignore or embrace all things Islamic, due to their own milder but nontheless widespread anti-heterosexual anxieties. How else to explain such monstrosities as this, in Norway of all places, the temporary refuge home of Wilhelm Reich on his flight from Nazi Germany!


Or this, in “Muslim-occupied” France! The former home of “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity”!

A new anti-Semitism rising in France


Europe appears lost to the Islamic radicals, if only due to demographic factors of high Islamic immigration and birth-rates, versus low “aboriginal European” birth-rates. 500 years of slow and painful European social and political reforms, for greater freedom and tolerance, will be swept away in 50 at the hands of the on-going Islamic immigration conquest.

For the record, the Islamic radicals who dominate the Saharasian regions, and who increasingly emigrate into the Western nations, aggressively demanding the Western democracies accept hate-filled and violent Sharia Law, are not reading my Saharasia book to gain inspiration, or to draw up their Caliphate maps. They know their own territories, and the strength of their Jihadi armies. And for the record, what they hope to accomplish is exactly 180-degrees opposite from what I desire to see accomplished.

What I point to as evidence of sexual illness, sadistic cruelty and psychopathic behavior, they point to as exemplary Islamic behavior everyone should emulate. Stoning girls or women for supposed sexual "crime&quot is abhorrent to me, the stoning itself being a crime deserving the death penalty to everyone who organized it, including or especially those in the woman’s family, and the local mullahs who organized it. For them, it is "natural" and they have no problem about it, just as young boys in Jihad families are frequently taught to slowly cut off the heads of young bleating lambs, drowning in their own blood, as an emotion-hardening preparation for doing the same to human beings – which is also by the way, the Jihadi background of the Halal meat industry, to insure that the dying animal suffers to the maximum extent possible. (Where are the animal-rights people on this Halal torturing of animals which has now invaded into Western nations? They are SILENT! Just as are the Leftist "feminist, women’s rights" groups silent about female sexual slavery within Islamic nations!)

Anyhow, around 1980, my work uncovered this global geographical pattern suggesting not merely the first-origins of social violence in the 4000-3500 BC period when the Saharasian Desert Belt firstly began to form (a very real "climate change" which radically damaged the early human societies which lived in that same region). The World Behavior Map also expressed a large danger to free people’s everywhere, in how it exposed an historical process which indicated a spreading of the Jihad conquests into surrounding borderland regions, a process which was continuing to unfold in contemporary world events.

By the year 2014 AD, the desert-dweller Jihadis expressed in desires a new global geographical pattern of their own. To them, their Sharia ideology will "save the world" from "sinful fornicators" and "prostitute women" of the non-believing infidel world. Their Islamic totalitarianism will erase all the social chaos and divisions as seen across the infidel world. And so they recognize "Saharasia" as their "Caliphate" for the reasons of fulfilling a grand dream of "world peace" as per their own vision. But it is a vision which history shows, is filled with sadism, slavery, cruelty, butchery, looting and conquest, being exactly opposite of the principles of love and honest, rational social relationships. World events of just the last several months or years has re-affirmed these facts abundantly, for those who have dared to follow current events from reliable sources.

The Caliphate Map identifies their intuitively-developed goals and aspirations, where historically they already had and continue to have an easy time in land-grabbing conquest, which is ongoing, and forthcoming. They came to these conclusions on their own, merely as the "logical" outcome of their own ideology, thought processes and desires. The new Islamic Caliphate Map exposes their plans at work, drafted out on a world map just this year, 2014, showing exactly what they believe is desirable, and do-able.

We would do well to take them at their word.

Like the old "war communism" of the Soviets, who understood that free peoples will always flee barbarian Communism and take their wealth and skills with them into free nations, the Muslim barbarians understand how their totalitarian agenda can only work if the entire planet is converted over into their system of domination. There must, by their thinking, be no place where infidels can run off and hide, to live more freely and organize for opposition against the Jihad agenda. Islam, like Communism and National Socialism (but different from them in how it has lasted nearly 1400 years!), proposes a utopian vision of perfect dominance of the individual, including their most private sexual and family life, by an over-reaching totalitarian state apparatus.

When Muslim leaders currently building up their Caliphate say "We will see you in New York", they aren’t planning any vacation, and it is good to recall that Osama Bin Ladin made similar bold statements while living in a tent in the desert. This initially elicited only big laughter within Western intelligence agencies – who did not prove to be so intelligent after all.

The world ignores these facts at great peril. Already the Jihadis say, they will do 911 all over again, next time with a-bombs.

Once again, I would recommend to get my Saharasia book if you are unfamiliar with the premises and findings, as it has strong predictive value in understanding the emotional, sexual and mental condition from which the brigades of Jihadis, and their support networks within the radical-left and neo-Nazi factions, derive.

I also recommend to review the following sources daily to get the factual reports which are mostly ignored by the clueless "intelligencia", leftist media parrots and Washington DC party-goers.

New book: "In Defense of Wilhelm Reich: Opposing the 80-Years’ War of Mainstream Defamatory Slander Against One of the 20th Century’s Most Brilliant Physicians and Natural Scientists", by J.DeMeo

Book Review by Thomas DiFerdinando: In Defense of Wilhelm Reich

June 12, 2014

Book Review by Thomas DiFerdinando:
In Defense of Wilhelm Reich: Opposing the 80-Years’ War of Defamatory Slander Against One of the 20th Century’s Most Brilliant Physicians and Natural Scientists, by James DeMeo, Natural Energy Works, Ashland 2014, 269 pages, illustrated with full index.

In Defense of Wilhelm Reich is an intelligent, well-written summary of Wilhelm Reich’s life, work and persecution. It is a powerhouse of scholarship, insight, meticulous historical detail, unapologetic political incorrectness, a relentless effort to stick to the facts, and, for newcomers to Reich, life-changing information. It is easily the most comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the entire body of Reich’s controversial yet profoundly practical scientific achievements.

The book’s Timeline (Chapter Two) provides a clear exposition of all of Reich’s major discoveries. I especially like the pithy, single-page textboxes that pepper the chapter. These alone give an immediate appreciation of the amazing scope of what Reich accomplished. They include his sex-economic discoveries; the foundational role of the orgasm in bioenergy regulation; Reich’s remarkable bioelectrical experiments; his bion discoveries on cancer, the origin of the cancer cell and the origins of life; the orgone accumulator anomalies, biological effects and health benefits; and the discovery of the life energy in the organism, atmosphere and cosmos. One finds answers to questions modern researchers have been grappling with for centuries. One also finds an equally comprehensive collection of the attacks on Reich, detailing who exactly put his persecution into play and who keeps it in play today, with names named, dots connected and documentation provided. Chapter Three documents the full range of confirmations of Reich’s discoveries, both before and after Reich’s death – including reference to modern day discoveries where Reich’s priority remains unacknowledged.

Chapter Four is in some ways the most important chapter in the book. It includes a devastating expose’ of the most recent attacks against Reich, as triggered by Christopher Turner’s Adventures in the Orgasmatron. Turner’s book masqueraded as scholarship in a particularly insidious way – it actually mixed up selected facts about Reich with a heavy dose of outright fabrications and slanders. Turner’s entire book was in essence a resurrection of the original 1947 Mildred Brady smears against Reich, merged with an even more scurrilous set of claims. One has to ask, what motivated Turner to go to all that trouble, to slander a scientist who has been dead for over sixty years? Well that is discussed in Dr. DeMeo’s book, and in uncompromising terms.

For example, there is the refreshingly straightforward and unapologetic discussion of Reich’s findings on emotional and sexual health, i.e., on what Reich called genitality. DeMeo contrasts Reich’s findings with those of the famous sex-researcher Alfred Kinsey (whom Turner is very friendly to) detailing where Kinsey differed with Reich in his claims about human sexuality. For example, unlike Reich, Kinsey’s definition of orgasm excluded any concerns for love or emotions. DeMeo also documents how Kinsey gave support to pornography and pedophilia, along with other behaviors which Reich considered to be neurotic, sadistic or criminal. One cannot find a more diametrically opposed understanding of sexuality and emotional health. The point is made, to understand the direction the Western world took in its social and policy-making trends in the second half of the 20th century, one has to understand it was Kinsey’s influence and claims, and not Reich’s, that lead to the destructive results authors like Turner insist on deceptively ascribing to Reich.

DeMeo’s chapter on Turner also documents the crucial fact that Turner, like every other skeptic before him, cites NONE of the extensive supporting evidence and positive confirmations for Reich’s clinical and experimental findings. This is especially important because, one of the oldest tricks employed by Reich’s detractors is the lie of omission. This is especially destructive in Turner’s case because his book was wrongly touted as an exhaustive, authoritative and scholarly biography of Reich! For the honest scholars and generally interested reader, In Defense of Wilhelm Reich contains a wealth of supporting links and resources to positive replications.

The final chapters detail historically recent slanders and distortions, including those found in sources like the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.

What I also found enlightening is DeMeo’s use of eye-opening historical context, i.e., his highlighting of known historical facts that have not yet been integrated as a whole into Western history, culture and popular consciousness. For example, the Timeline chapter includes brief but clarifying insight into the secret working relationship between Hitler and Stalin, and also between Lenin and the German High Command after WWI – active, working relationships aimed at world domination that lead to the carnage of WWII. There is also material on the Marxist-Communist betrayals of the early sex- and family-law reformers; a comparison of the adoption of these reforms in Capitalist America vs. their rejection in the retrograde Socialist and Communist countries; and much on Reich’s relationship to the Communists, i.e., what he knew and didn’t know at the time about Marx and the Soviets – another major contribution.

More than a book about Reich’s persecution, In Defense of Wilhelm Reich serves as an indictment of the highly destructive yet profoundly seductive sociopolitical forces throughout our society that interfere daily with human freedom and happiness, forces which Reich collectively explained as the Emotional Plague. The central myth about Reich – that of the "sex-crazed quack gone mad" – is the perfect example. The negative response to Reich by many otherwise decent people today is, in actuality, a response to this fake "Reich" conjured up by the Plague. The real Reich is certainly controversial and emotionally challenging, due to his honest and penetrating analysis of humanity’s deep-seated neurotic and psychosexually-driven frustrations and self-destructive tendencies. But that is a far cry from Reich being a "pornographic, sex-crazed charlatan"! The latter is a myth needed by the Emotional Plague and authors like Turner, to steer otherwise decent people away from the work and discoveries of one of history’s most remarkable and productive psychiatrists and natural scientists.

I want to mention one other thing. Reich himself stated his FDA trial and persecution were initiated and organized by Moscow-driven Communist cells in the USA. Contrary to the popular assumption that Reich was delusional, and that his downfall and persecution were driven by a right-wing, sex-hating, McCarthy-inspired, Christian conservative conspiracy, Reich has since been proven correct. This is most thoroughly documented in a recent book by researcher James Martin, Wilhelm Reich and the Cold War (second edition subtitled: "The True Story of How a Communist Spy Team, Government Hoodlums and Sick Psychiatrists Destroyed Sexual Science and Cosmic Life Energy Discoveries"). In Defense of Wilhelm Reich provides further supporting evidence to both Reich’s assertions and Martin’s extensive findings on the Communist conspiracy, connecting even more dots in a series of history-changing events that murdered and nearly completely destroyed the life’s work of one of histories most original and prolific scientists. While people of all political persuasions certainly played a role in Reich’s downfall, the demonstrable fact is it was the Communist Left who most actively conspired to destroy Reich, and as Dr. DeMeo shows, continues to work to destroy him today.

The power of In Defense of Wilhelm Reich is that, like the best theatrical and cinematic productions, it’s theme is universal. It is classic "Good vs. Evil", except in the case of Reich, the transcendent nature of the drama is no fiction. It is the product of two powerful, but very real forces one rarely finds in such total opposition to each other: the relentless and uncompromising nature of Wilhelm Reich, his work and his genuinely profound discoveries, and the relentless, uncompromising compulsion of the Emotional Plague to destroy all three. Part of Dr. DeMeo’s contribution, supported by his extensive background and lifelong experience in orgonomic research, is the fact he too is as relentless about sticking to the facts as the enemies of Reich and life-energy science are in hiding, obscuring, altering and destroying them. While nothing beats reading Reich’s works first hand, for those who would like a broad yet profoundly satisfying overview and summary all in one place, this is the book for you. I give it my highest recommendation, to both novice and professional — for those who want a fact-based introduction to whom Reich was and what he achieved, and for professionals and others with a life-long commitment to applying and advancing this man’s remarkable discoveries and contributions to humanity.

Mr. DiFerdinando is a life-long supporter of Wilhelm Reich’s orgonomic science, having also developed a comprehensive pain, injury and trauma therapy based upon Reich’s biophysical, life-energetic discoveries.

WILHELM REICH & THE COLD WAR: The True Story of How a Communist Spy Team, Government Hoodlums and Sick Psychiatrists Destroyed Sexual Science and Cosmic Life Energy Discoveries

May 12, 2014

New Book Announcement.

We are pleased to offer a new revised and updated edition of:

WILHELM REICH & THE COLD WAR: The True Story of How a Communist Spy Team, Government Hoodlums and Sick Psychiatrists Destroyed Sexual Science and Cosmic Life Energy Discoveries, by James Edward Martin

Praise For James Martin’s
Wilhelm Reich & The Cold War:

“…your documentary proof of how the Stalin-headed conspiracy used character analysis negatively was a most important insight. Altogether excellent research. Congratulations.”

- Eva Reich, MD.

“Jim Martin’s thorough investigation into the mysterious life-and-times of Wilhelm Reich is a compelling and fascinating read, also bringing together many new elements about the secret history of the Cold War.”

- Dick Russell, author of The Man Who Knew Too Much.

“…an excellent job in digging up critical new facts supporting the more remarkable claims of Wilhelm Reich as made during his last years.”

- James DeMeo, PhD, natural scientist and author of Saharasia.

“…tenaciously thorough research and lucid engaging style … fascinating insight into the latter years of Reich’s life, a period sadly neglected by many other biographers.”

- Jon East, British film & television producer/director.

Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957), his colleagues, and his antagonists, are among the most influential groups of people of the 20th century. As a part of Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic movement in Vienna, Reich is hailed as an innovator. His later work in the United States brought him to an ignominious end when he died in federal prison. Author and researcher James Edward Martin took up the subject of the controversial psychoanalytic pioneer and natural scientist, expecting to disprove Reich’s suspicions that his detractors were predominantly communists and even Soviet spies. This led the author to dusty university archives across the United States and Europe, and to interview Reich’s associates and relatives. He also made Freedom of Information Act searches of FDA, FBI and CIA files, investigating not only their files on Reich, but also of his major detractors. In this book, you’ll meet Karl Frank, the leader of an underground anti-Nazi group of Germans, calling themselves "New Beginning." Frank was a friend of Reich’s in Vienna in the 20s; he later worked for Allen Dulles’ intelligence agency Office of Strategic Services. It was Karl Frank who confirmed to Reich that Mildred Edie Brady, the instigator of the FDA’s persecution of Reich, was indeed a fully committed Soviet agent. You’ll listen in on conversations with Michael Straight, who was the publisher of Mildred Brady’s article in "The New Republic" magazine. You’ll hear his explanation of his tangled past involvement with a notorious den of Soviet moles, the Cambridge Five spy ring that included Anthony Blunt, Kim Philby, Donald Maclean and Guy Burgess. You’ll learn how Stalin’s agents used Reich’s own techniques of character analysis in a perverted way, in order to find psychological hooks into the minds of innocent people, conforming them to the red thread of conspiracy. You’ll see what Mildred Brady, a cheerleader for the Emotional Plague, did to her own daughter. You’ll travel to Arizona, and visit the places where Reich conducted his atmospheric medicine, under the noses of officials in the government’s weather modification center, the Institute of Atmospheric Physics. You’ll join Albert Einstein at Princeton as he tests Reich’s discoveries, confirms them experimentally but not pursuing them. You’ll meet the famed Dr. James E. McDonald and his colleagues at the University of Arizona, about McDonald’s ground-breaking work on weather modification and UFO research – he was one of the first mainstream scientists to blow the whistle on a government cover-up. Wilhelm Reich and the Cold War is exceptionally well documented with numerous citations, in a fully indexed edition including an Appendix with newly uncovered documents from FDA and FBI files, damning Reich’s persecutors. 420 pp. $ 27.95 Softcover

Countering Wikipedia Disinformation, and More

Here are a few interesting survival websites. By "survival", I don’t mean stocking up food or preparing for a global apocalypse. But these could save you from a personal apocalypse.

The Immunity Resource Foundation
An Information Base on the Scientific and Medical Issues
Challenging the HIV/AIDS Hypothesis

Notice the key word "challenging". As contrasted to "meekly or blindly going along with".

Here’s another, very much related, to how you get your information about such things, about science, medicine, or just about the world? About Wilhelm Reich? Too many trust "Wikipedia", when in fact it is the least trustworthy information source on internet.

Wikipedia Slanders and Disinformation
About Wilhelm Reich and Orgonomy

And this one is interesting, one of the first mainstream exposures of a large and growing problem, which we also know well from Reich’s work on the question of oranur effects due to low-level EMF.

Extended Book Sale, and Replacement Offer for Problem Book Copies

Extending our Offer for Free Shipping Internationally.

Regarding my latest book In Defense of Wilhelm Reich, it has been decided to extend the offer of free shipping internationally through the month of May, and also to spice the offer up a bit.

Purchase In Defense of Wilhelm Reich along with any of these other books, and the entire order will be processed without shipping charges, for the USA or Internationally. Here are the other titles you can combine it with:

* Saharasia
* Orgone Accumulator Handbook (English, Italian, Spanish or Greek editions)
* Heretic’s Notebook

This offer to combine must include one copy of In Defense of Wilhelm Reich, after which you can add on any of these other titles.

Place your order as usual through the Natural Energy Works website.

This offer is only being made to OBRL-News subscribers, and to readers of the OBRL blog. While our shopping cart will compute a shipping charge for these additional titles, if you mention this special offer for free shipping in the comment box during checkout, or as a separate email at the time of the order, we will cancel out all shipping charges, and you will only be charged for the price of the books.

This offer also lasts through the month of May!

Replacement Offer for Problem Book Copies

It has come to my attention that the first 30 or so copies of In Defense of Wilhelm Reich were printed from an uncorrected master, and therefore have a number of small errors in the text. These are small things, grammar slips and typos or misspellings, but I nevertheless was upset to learn about it.

If you got one of those early copies, I will be happy to replace it without charge, with a copy from the fully-corrected master that has been in use since mid-December last year.

The way to tell is, to look at the copyright page, and find the phrase "First Edition, 2013". Below that is a number which is the date of the printing proof, with the format of year,month,day. If your copy has a number prior to 131210 (which is Dec. 10, 2013), then you probably got one of the copies which were made from an uncorrected proof. If you have a copy more recent than that, for example with the number 131215 (15 Dec. 2013) then you have the fully-corrected copy which should have been circulating in the first instance.

If you want the replacement, please tear out that copyright page, and return it to us by postal mails, to:

Natural Energy Works

PO Box 1148

Ashland, Oregon 97520 USA

A fresh new copy, from the current master and without those errors, will be shipped to you without charge.

Or you can make a scan image of that page and email that to us at:
However, for scanned images, if you did not obtain the copy from Natural Energy Works, we also need a scanned copy of the receipt from the bookstore you purchased it through. If you lost the receipt, then simply send us the copyright page by postal mails.

In all cases, be sure to provide your return postal address, telephone and email with whatever you send to us, so we know where to send the replacement. You must provide the telephone number and email, as required by our shipper and for email confirmations.

Thanks and Good Wishes,

Strong Alive Women, Video Recommendations

April 28, 2014

Strong Alive Women, Video Recommendations

Below are listed a few older films and one documentary which honor Strong Alive Women, the struggles they face, and how their struggles reveal problems we all continue to face in the modern times.

Weblinks to the Amazon website are provided, but you can probably get them elsewhere.

1. I Remember Mama – Irene Dunne. This is an honoraria for loving mothers at a time before it was common for women to work outside the home. A loving marriage but before the era of contraception, or women’s full equality, it shows a very real-world situation in the USA where women nevertheless were self-determined in action and goals. It is a good look at what your grandmothers had to struggle with, but not in any sense of "women’s liberation". The original movie is from 1948, about a Norwegian immigrant family living in San Francisco during the Great Depression, and how they struggle to survive and keep a loving family together. Also notable, the stiff relatives, a few of whom had golden hearts, which most of us can identify in our own family trees. Mama won many awards and triggered a popular TV series in the 1950s. It is about the Mama we might have had, if lucky, or that we wanted, if not, and a lesson why mother-love is indispensable. Keep a box of tissues handy.

2. Sister Kenny (Amor Sublime) – Rosalind Russell
This one is a fascinating look at an innovative treatment for polio prior to the development of the various polio vaccines. Developed by an Australian nurse Elizabeth Kenny, while serving the health-care needs of remote farm families in the outback, where there were few MDs to assist or oppose innovation. Following her own intuitive methods, Sister Kenny helped many severely debilitated children struck with polio to regain full motion and functioning. She developed a form of therapy involving hot water compresses and motional therapy, to "re-educate" the muscles by inducing natural motions. Her success brought the attention of the medical establishment, which turned against her with a fury, for daring to oppose their system of Medieval metal braces and immobilization techniques, and for her abilities to save children whom they could not. The MDs also resented her for being a woman. Kenny’s methods have parallels to Reich’s concepts of the importance of fluid motion versus stiff immobility in biopathic disease, and those who have read Reich should note the similarities right off. The DVD for this excellent film as linked above is Region 2, for Europe, so those in North America will need a multi-region DVD player, or you can "hack" your player to turn on the multi-region capabilities – most of them have this hidden feature. Look it up on internet by your DVD player model number and the words "hack region code". Most every DVD player can be easily converted to region-free or multi-region without too much difficulty. There is a VHS version also:
Also several YouTube documentaries on the original Kenny treatments, here:

A search of her name, Sister Kenny, will bring up other YouTubes, but get the DVD or VHS for a good night’s entertainment and inspiration.

3. We The Living – Alida Valli An Ayn Rand masterpiece formulated from her own experiences in early Soviet Russia, the story traces the struggle of the young and independent-minded Kira to find love and professional advancement in an increasingly deadly Communist system of oppression and thought control. It also shows how she influences the men in her life, who suffer from similar oppression. A good look at what Western democracies in Europe or America seem headed towards, as the leftist PC "thought police" of Big Government increasingly gain legal powers over what can be said, or written, or read, or believed, or thought, or done.

4. Honor Diaries – various brave women This is a documentary on the problem of female sexual slavery across the Islamic world, and the brutal methods used by the men in those totalitarian societies to humble women down into subservience. It elucidates the problem of "family honor" and the murder of disobedient women and girls who try to break free of the chains thrust upon them by Islamic societies where they are treated as little more than legalized concubines or baby-making sex-slaves. The narration is given by nine courageous women’s rights advocates from these same Muslim nations, who escaped to the non-Muslim world – which is to say, the non-Saharasian world. You may weep on this one also, but not for the same reasons as with the Mama film. This is exactly the kind of documentary film which the leftist Islam-apologizers don’t want you to see, and in fact leftist and Muslim thugs have today been using threats or mob actions to prevent showings of this new documentary at university campuses across the USA. The above weblink at Amazon is only for direct video download, but you can purchase the DVD from the home webpage of the producers:

Description of In Defense of Wilhelm Reich:

Dr. Wilhelm Reich is the man whom nearly everyone loves to hate. No other figure in 20th Century science and medicine could be named who has been so badly maligned in popular media, scientific and medical circles, nor so shabbily mistreated by power-drunk federal agencies and arrogant judges.
Publicly denounced and slandered in both Europe and America by Nazis, Communists and psychoanalysts, placed on both Hitler’s and Stalin’s death lists but narrowly escaping to the USA, subjected to new public slanders and attacks by American journalists and psychiatrists who deliberately lied and provoked an “investigation” by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), imprisoned by American courts which ignored his legal writs and pleas about prosecutorial and FDA fraud, denied appeals all the way up to the US Supreme Court, which rubber-stamped the FDA’s demands for the banning and burning of his scientific books and research journals, and finally dying alone in prison – who was this man, Wilhelm Reich, and why today, more than 50 years after his death, does he continue to stir up such emotional antipathy? It is a literal 80-Years’ War of continuing misrepresentation, slander and defamation.
Who were and are Reich’s attackers? And what stands behind their obsession to utterly rid the world of him, and of his work? What are the facts regarding Reich’s social-sexual theories and his experimental work on the orgone energy, or life-energy? Author and Natural Scientist James DeMeo takes on the book-burners, exposing with clarity and documentation their many slanderous fabrications, half-truths and lies of omission. In so doing, he also summarizes the lesser-known facts about Reich’s important clinical and life-energetic experimental findings, now verified by scientists and physicians worldwide, and holding great promise for the future.

Farhat-Holzman: “When They Love Their Children…”

April 4, 2014

“When They Love Their Children.”
Laina Farhat-Holzman
April 5, 2014

Many years ago, Golda Meir, then President of Israel, was asked when there would be peace with the Arab world. She said: “We will have peace when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us.” We need to look at that astute observation again today because she was right.

A UN observer has released a devastating report on Syria, in which both the government forces and the Islamist insurgents are imprisoning, torturing, raping, and killing children to make a point to their oppositions. Both sides appear to be equally horrible. This demonstrates the disinterest in human rights (and the disdain for children) in today’s Syrian society. Sad to say, this is not an anomaly created by war. It is a global horror shared by more than just Syrian culture.

o Syria. When the Syrian insurgency began, the government attempted to make a point that they were not going to be rolled over. They kidnapped a dissident’s child, tortured him, and sent his body parts back to the family. When things like this happen today, news of it spreads via modern communications around the world. It so horrified the developed world that there was a movement to take sides with the dissidents and there were cries from both French and American political figures to go after the Syrian government with military force. Unfortunately, the dissidents have shown themselves to be equally horrible, with the additional threat that should they win, Syria would no longer even pretend to be a modern state. It would be a medieval Muslim state.

o Gaza. The Islamist Jihad terror group has set up a summer camp in Rafah for teens: not to play sports but to join war games organized by Islamic Jihad. The boys are taught how to strip down an AK-47 assault rifle, crawl through tunnels and run across burning tires amid the sound of explosions. The children, sad to say, are recruited from the UN’s Palestinian refugee agency, UNRWA, the longest and only refugee facility in the world designed for permanence.

Hamas has opened other summer camps hosting 100,000 students, boys and girls from 10 to 21, also doing military training. An alarmed Gaza psychologist (anonymous) said that “This presents a danger to their lives and contravenes international laws for the protection of children.” Indeed it does, but when children are encouraged to become suicide bombers, one wonders how much such people love their children at all.

o Child Warriors. It is difficult to see how the many militants roiling Africa love their children either. It has been a practice (dating from the civil wars in The Ivory Coast and Liberia) to use boy children as drugged-up warriors and girl children as sexual and manual slaves. The conflicts in the Central African Republic has followed suit, indifferent to global outrage. This practice has become ubiquitous all over the lesser-developed parts of Africa.

o Haiti. It has long been known how too many Haitians, both the desperately poor and the well to do, regard children as things, not people. The poor rent out their young boys and girls for sexual exploitation by sex tourists, as beggars, and as house slaves (rest avec).

o Thailand. Sex tourism has also reared its ugly head in Thailand too, and perhaps because the Thais love their own children, they recruit sex slaves from among their poorer neighboring countries. India is a source for such child (and particularly female) victims.

o Egypt. Impoverished families have long sold their little girls (and boys) to well-healed Saudi sex tourists. In addition, one must note that even among the better off Egyptians (and others across North Africa), they do not love their daughters enough to stop the traditional mutilation of their genitals. Social pressure is much more important than love of one’s children.

o Modern World. The concern for children is a product of our western modern world. We only need to look back over a few centuries to remember that the children of the poor were economic assets, not household treasures. Today’s horrors are remnants of a terrible past and must be condemned.

Dr. Laina Farhat-Holzman is a historian, lecturer, and author of God’s Law or Man’s Law: the Fundamentalist Challenge to Secular Rule.
