New Medical Journal Article Debunking “Infectious HIV”

January 31, 2012

A new article was published in a major Italian medical journal critical of the "infectious HIV" theory of AIDS (yes, it is only a theory, and not a very good or accurate one), with the lead author being Dr. Peter Duesberg, of the Department of Cell Biology at UC Berkeley.

The paper carries the provocative and fully accurate title:

AIDS since 1984: No evidence for a new, viral epidemic – not even in Africa
Peter H. Duesberg, et al.
Italian Journal of Anatomy and Embryology, Vol.116, n.2: 73-92, 2011

There also is a new paper reviewing the controversy on the Nature website. Here:

And while I’m on the subject of Rightist slanders of Reich….

January 26, 2012

Here’s a one-star review posted to Amazon.com in January 2011, regarding
Daniel Flynn’s book, A Conservative History of the American Left.

++++++

http://www.amazon.com/Conservative-History-American-Left/product-reviews/0307339467

Unreliable book containing errors and sexual slander
By James DeMeo (Oregon, USA)

This book has merit in exposing some of the ugly details of the American left-wing and "progressive" history few people know about. However, the author Daniel Flynn is not an exacting scholar and in many places his citations don’t add up, or he makes outrageous claims without validating references. And in some places, he collapses into use of sexual slander to attack the innocent, right along with the guilty.

Take for example the six or so pages where he mentioned the Austrian anti-Nazi freedom fighter, Wilhelm Reich, who temporarily joined with the Communist Party in Germany against the Hitlerites. Reich later was thrown out of the CP in 1932 for his pro-freedom anti-communist positions. But Flynn cares not for such facts, and so repeats some of the same lies and sexual slander originally hurled against Reich by the very same left-wing Marxist factions. So we have the spectre of an American conservative relying upon left-wing smears from the 1950s media, attacking an American conservative anti-Communist, but referencing only his very early period of youthful European associations. That’s not only historically inaccurate and unfair, but with the added nasty bits of sexual slander, is a typical ploy of yellow journalism.

So Flynn lumps Reich in with the twisted Kinsey group and all the left-radical sexual freedom-peddlers (that’s what Reich called them, in criticism), the sexual extremists of the hippy-movement, which is another fabrication and slander given Reich’s constant emphasis upon the need for love in sexual relations. Reich did advocate things the conservatives don’t like, such as legalized abortion and contraception, and a de-criminalization of youthful romance, as with the Romeo and Juliet example (like it or not, as you will), but his ideas were equally offensive to liberal-progressive ideology, in that he also asserted homoeroticism and S&M were neuroses, and pedophilia a severe sickness against which children had to be protected. But Flynn cares not for facts, and his language in those sections goes typically jokey and sarcastic, which is a cover-up for ignorance. In a few places, he gave a few citations, but they absolutely do not support his views. His only cited reference for Reich was the biography by Myron Sharaf, Fury On Earth: A Biography Of Wilhelm Reich… but there’s nothing in the Sharaf book to support Flynn’s charges, and his citations do not check-out. Read the Sharaf book for yourself, or Reich’s own later writings for details, such as The Mass Psychology of Fascism, Reich Speaks Of Freud, or The Murder of Christ.

It would take pages to provide details, but every decent conservative will maybe be a bit uncomfortable with those extremists within their own group who would turn the clock so far back as to put us all under the boot-heel of the priesthood. Or to give the State even more power to prohibit divorce or contraception, and snoop into our bedrooms. Already we fight against such monstrosities as the TSA groping into our underwear, and the crushing oppression of Islamic Sharia Law as it enters the USA on the heels of progressive liberalism. Should we now want similar oppression by Christian extremists?

The phrase "Kinder, Kircher, Kucher"" comes to mind as what Flynn seems to wish for the USA, though he doesn’t come right out and say it. He merely bashes everything and everyone he considers might lead away from that, healthy or sick. So anyone who fought to legalize freedom to pick your own mate, or to divorce, or to use contraception, and to support women’s rights gets accused of supporting the most extremist of sick stuff, such as polygamy, "polymorphous perversity", and pedophilia. It is a "Kill ‘em all and let God sort it out" approach to social criticism, which the reader should beware about. As an alternative, read Jonah Goldberg’s excellent volume Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning. It covers much of the same territory, but without the sarcasm, giving a much better education on the issues with accurate citations. And it has no sexual slander to contaminate the important message.

More Lies About Wilhelm Reich — This time from the Right-Wing

January 24, 2012

The following Comment Letter was sent to the online news outlets, Canada Free Press and The Examiner, in reply to a recent slander of Wilhelm Reich by conservative commentator Douglas Gibbs. The article contains a small pile of quite malicious errors, mis-attributing to Reich the authorship of a book he did not write nor contribute to, claiming once again that he was “a member of the Frankfurt Group”, and attributing to him an ugly little quotation which was so off from his thinking that it was fully impossible that he could have written it. With a simple internet search, I actually found the original quote, repeated below, in the “Manifesto” of the insane Norwegian mass-murderer, Anders Breivik! The article mis-attributes the words of an insane child-murderer to Wilhelm Reich, a man who devoted his life to defending children!

When informed of the problems in the article, both the author and the editors at these "alternative media" outlets just ignored my comments, either deleting or burying them into a comment section, and nothing was changed in the article itself, which continues now to be re-quoted by others. I am therefore making the matter public, and encourage others who have the time to make their own efforts to write to those two media outlets, via the weblinks below.

It also underscores another issue I’ve spoken about previously, that the "alternatives media" (right-wing, left-wing, “populist” or whatever) has its own share of truth-benders, gossipers and angry scribblers, quite happy to lie and slander, and then try to cover-up when caught doing it, being no better in this regard than the "mainstream media".

J.D.

Regarding the article "Political Correctness: Tool of Marxism" by Douglas Gibbs:

Quoting from the Norwegian Killer and Communist Party Hacks!

http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/44100

http://www.examiner.com/political-buzz-in-los-angeles/political-correctness-tool-of-marxism

This article is poorly-researched and carries many patently false claims about Wilhelm Reich. Firstly, Reich is not the author of The Authoritarian Personality, which was written by Adorno, Frenkel-Brunswik, Levinson and Sanford, who were all liberal-left in sentiment. And the quote Mr. Gibbs mis-attributes to Reich is equally false and quite malicious, having been written in fact by the insane Norwegian mass-murder killer-of-children, Anders Breivik! Mr. Gibbs wrote:

To eliminate the non-Marxist political systems, Reich taught that “the patriarchal social structure would be replaced with matriarchy; the belief that men and women are different and properly have different roles would be replaced with androgyny; and the belief that heterosexuality is normal would be replaced with the belief that homosexuality is ‘normal’.” (Breivik, 2082 A European Declaration of Independence, p.16)

Reich never said this, nor anything similar. This was from Breivik, and if you don’t care to download his entire 1500+ page madhouse screed from internet, the key quote is also part of a discussion posted up at this blog page:

http://johnjenkinsnfdu.blogspot.com/2011/07/anders-behring-breivik-and.html

Reich was a young Marxist in the struggle against Hitlerism, but was expelled from the German Communist Party in 1932, for his criticisms of party leaders and their anti-freedom policies. He was quickly put on an NKVD death list, already being on the Gestapo death-list. Reich became an outspoken anti-communist after the 1930s and remained so until his death in 1957. He was NEVER a member of the "Frankfurt Group" of Freudo-Marxists, who never had a good opinion of him. They considered Reich to be a bad Marxist, notably for his rejection of "class struggle" ideology (the proletariat, he argued, was just as neurotic and sexually impotent as the bourgeoisie).

Reich also had a decidedly heterosexual emphasis, arguing that a loving genital heterosexuality was the "gold standard" for human emotional and psychological health. He defended the rights of young lovers (as with Romeo and Juliet) to have their romances, but also argued that children had to be protected from adult abusers and seducers. He was critical of pornography, but for legalization of divorce, contraception and abortion, which were illegal in his day. His clinical findings opposed the "raw discharge" theory of "anything goes" sexuality as promoted by Kinsey, and he argued that love was a critical ingredient for full sexual gratification. He also argued for decriminalization of homosexuality, even while considering it neurotic. For holding these views, both the Left and the Right tend to have big problems with Wilhelm Reich, both finding things to agree with, and disagree with.

It is one thing to make solid and historically accurate criticisms of Reich, based upon facts. But Mr. Gibbs would quote from an insane killer who machine-guns children by the score, and put those dirty words into Reich’s mouth!

Factually, the claims that Reich was some kind of communist pervert is a 1950s smear, fabricated and spread publicly in mainstream media articles and books during Reich’s lifetime by the Communist Left. In some kind of strange Orwellian twist, today those old slanders are being unearthed and quoted by the authoritarian religious Right, as if Communist truth-benders are suddenly "OK", if their lies can be put to good use against someone like Reich. Details on that are too complex to present here, but there are full articles on this matter already posted to internet:

New Slander from an Old Emotional Pest

January 11, 2012

Most recently I posted out an announcement of my forthcoming lecture and seminar in Munich Germany, scheduled for 16-17 March. A flyer announcing that event was circulated, which is still available and can be downloaded from here:
http://www.orgonelab.org/DeMeoMunich2012.pdf

Almost before the electrons had dissipated from the computer screens, Mr. Joel Carlinsky, a well-known troublemaker and emotional pest in the USA, began writing rants against myself and this event. He recruited several persons to help spread his poison, including a Mr. Petros Evdokas of Cyprus. They posted up a strange article to a German communist website wherein I was finger-pointed as a "neo-Nazi" as well as other unflattering things, but which I will not dignify by repeating here nor giving out the weblink. My response as posted to that website, however, is given below.

The Munich event will proceed as usual, and we hope all people of good-will with legitimate interests in Wilhelm Reich’s important discoveries will plan to attend.

In good will,

Joel Carlinsky, Agent Provacateur and Liar

James DeMeo 12.01.2012 – 06:51

Assuming anybody wastes time to read Mr. Carlinsky’s lies, as the target of his abuse, I should like to say the following:

1. I’m a life-long political moderate and old-fashioned liberal who loathes the Nazis and everything they stand for. One could search my writings forever and never find one sentence that even remotely supports them, much less directly so. My websites, for the curious, are here:

http://www.orgonelab.org

http://www.saharasia.org

2. I am known in the USA as a supporter and scientific investigator of the writings and research of the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich, whom all educated people in Germany, especially those from the left, will know as having also been an anti-Nazi freedom fighter, who fled to the USA to escape European fascism. He wrote the important books "Mass Psychology of Fascism", "People in Trouble", "The Sexual Revolution", and so on. My own major book, "Saharasia" (you can get it from Amazon.de), is formulated in a similar direction, but with a global cross-cultural evaluation. It is decidedly pro-freedom, pro-woman, and pro-sexuality, and since it covers pre-historical and historical events prior to 1900, it does not deal with the Nazi fascists. Read it to learn more.

3. Mr. Carlinsky, meanwhile, has a long history of attacking and denigrating the work and person of Wilhelm Reich, and of myself especially. He appears to have some mental condition, a fixation about Reich which drives him to alternatively attack Reich and every scholar or scientist who takes Reich’s work seriously, and then to misportray himself as a big supporter of Reich. He was imprisoned for burglary of the Wilhelm Reich Museum years ago, and made threats to burglarize the homes of people supporting Reich’s work, or to kill them. He also has working relations with members of the American "skeptics clubs" who make war against every new idea, especially against natural healing methods, and so Carlinsky is basically supporting the same people who threw Reich into prison and burned his books in the USA. A full exposition of his angry and disruptive actions can be found here:

http://www.orgonelab.org/carlinskyletter.htm

Toxic Disinformation: Joel Carlinsky, CSICOP and Orgonomy

http://www.orgonelab.org/carlinsky.htm

That is all I care to say about this creepy character, except to say also that his associates who try to hide themselves, such as Mr. Petros Evdokas of Cyprus who posted up this trashy slander and defamation for Mr. Carlinsky, are well known to us and will also be publicly exposed.

March Lecture/Seminar in Munich

January 7, 2012

ANNOUNCING

16-17 March 2012

Lecture and Seminar in Munich, Germany, on the subject of:

New Research Supporting
Wilhelm Reich’s Scientific Discoveries

During the period from the 1920s through the 1950s, Dr. Wilhelm Reich followed a path of scientific discovery which remains of vital importance to the modern world. Protégé of Sigmund Freud, therapeutic innovator, social reformer and anti-fascist freedom fighter, researcher into the bioelectric nature of emotion and sexuality, investigator of cancer biophysics and the origins of life, discoverer of a specific life energy, the controversial orgone, and inventor of the orgone energy accumulator, developer of an apparatus to trigger rains in droughty or desert regions – Reich’s findings attracted at least as much antipathy and irrational opposition as open inquiry. He was attacked with equal fury by the European Nazis and Communist Party, and later by American communists, psychiatrists and the US Food and Drug Administration; his books were banned and burned on both continents, and he died in prison. The popular mainstream media of Reich’s day spread vicious slander and defamation about him, leading to the alarming and unethical measures of censorship and book-burning. A widespread public misrepresentation of his work continues today. Factually, Reich’s findings have been repeatedly confirmed and validated by independent scientists and clinicians over the decades, with discoveries that threaten many modern-day theorems and protected enclaves within science and medicine.

Dr. James DeMeo is one of several American scientists who have personally made experimental investigations of Reich’s work since 1970, with positive proofs for many of Reich’s discoveries. He is author of many books and articles on the subject, to include Saharasia, The Orgone Accumulator Handbook, as editor of Heretic’s Notebook and On Wilhelm Reich and Orgonomy, and co-editor of Nach Reich: Neue Forschungen zur Orgonomie. DeMeo will present one evening lecture and two half-day seminars on these subjects.

James DeMeo formally studied the Earth, atmospheric, and environmental/social sciences at Florida International University and the University of Kansas, where he earned his Ph.D. in 1986. At KU, he openly undertook graduate-level natural scientific research specifically focused upon Wilhelm Reich’s controversial discoveries, subjecting those ideas to rigorous testing with positive verification of the original findings. DeMeo has undertaken field research in the arid American Southwest, Egypt, Israel, sub-Saharan Eritrea, and Namibia, Africa. DeMeo served on the Faculty of Geography at Illinois State University and the University of Miami. Aside from his research in orgonomy, DeMeo is known for his work on renewable energy systems (solar and wind power), historical and theoretical work on modern science controversies such as the issue of the cosmic ether-drift, the presence of an early peaceful period in human prehistory, and pre-Columbian contacts in the New World. He is a member of the Society for Scientific Exploration, Arid Lands Society, AAAS, Natural Philosophy Alliance, and International Society for the Study of Subtle Energy and Energy Medicine. He is Director of the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab (OBRL), which he founded in 1978, and which is today located at a high-altitude research facility in the Siskiyou Mountains near to Ashland, Oregon.
