Why Trump is Hated By the Left.

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 leftists. 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.

These are qualities that terrify liberals. The hatred of Trump by people on the left comes from their deep fear of physical aggression and of strong individual – not collective – authority. Not having their aggression at their disposal, their weapon of choice is the use of their intellect. Because they are in conflict internally with their personal fear and hatred of aggression,Trump is seen by them as a frightening individual no different than the old time Nazis.

Leftists unconsciously respect authority out of fear. Their underlying fear of aggression is why they twist social issues into their preconceived belief-systems such as, for example, that all human beings are good and that all social problems can be solved through collective dialogue. These beliefs are supported by their relative morality of political correctness. But, whenever possible, they will reveal their true hatred of genuine authority by acting in subversive ways. This characteristic mind-set is the reason that many leftists are in a state of panic over Trump’s election because the energy behind their personal enmity has no satisfactory social outlet.

By contrast, people on the political right are not in conflict with their feelings of aggression and so have no need to get caught up in politically correct attitudes and ideas.They can respect authority figures and have emotions of affection and even feelings of gratitude for the person in authority.

This distinction based on emotional forces underlying the character structure of people on the left and right is sufficient to explain the social dynamics underlying the political outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

The Morality’s of the Left and the Right

The morality of political correctness is a layer of social armor that developed spontaneously from the character structure of leftist intellectuals in the 60s. It’s functions were to destroy the old authoritarian order and to defend the destructive social consequences that resulted from the anti-authoritarian transformation of society.
Around the same time, the morality of conservatism and the Conservative Party appeared spontaneously from the political right. It’s rational functions were to conserve what was of value in the institutions of the old authoritarian order and to regain stability in social life by politically opposing the destructiveness of the left’s “progressivism.”
But, because of the transformation of society into anti-authoritarianism, the evil genie of social destructiveness (the emotional plague) was out of the bottle and there was nothing that any politician including those on the right could do to reverse the inevitable erosion in social, political and economic life brought on by the forces of the left: Without a doubt, it became clear that politics was not the answer to humanities problems and to its social pathology.

What Are Emotions?

Emotions are the perception of bio-energy moving radially (in and out) in the organism. There are five basic emotions: Love, Fear, Rage, Sadness and Longing.

What is emotional health?
In an emotionally healthy individual, biological energy moves freely in the body. The build-up of energy beyond a certain level gives rise to sexual excitation and a drive for discharge of excess energy in the genital orgasm. Called orgastic potency, this capacity is the criterion of emotional health.

What is emotional illness?
In an unhealthy individual the movement of bio-energy is impeded by emotional blocks or armor. Since the capacity for complete orgastic discharge is disturbed, the residual, undischarged energy leads to the symptoms of emotional illness.

What are emotional blocks/armor?
Emotional blocks are the immobilization (stasis) of bio-energy in various organs of the body. It is mostly held in the musculature (muscular armor) and the person’s character (character armor).

How are emotional blocks/armor recognized?
Some common manifestations are disturbances in thinking, destructive acts and symptoms such as anxiety, depression etc. well-known in psychiatry.

What are the effects of these emotional blocks?
Emotional blocks result in sexual disturbances and other psychiatric symptoms as well as every kind of pathological social behavior and thinking.

What is the origin of these emotional blocks?
Emotional blocks (armor) are formed during the individual’s developmental period from birth to around the age of five or later.

How do these emotional blocks originate?
They are the result of life-negative, socially destructive influences on a young child’s emotional development.

Can people’s emotional blocks be removed?
This can be performed by physicians who are specifically trained in the removal of emotional blocks. The social manifestations of these blocks can also be addressed by psychologists and social workers who are trained to work in the social realm.

Is medication ever used?
The function of psychoactive drugs is to deaden emotions. Medication is used only when the patient cannot function without it. One of the goals of therapy is to bring the patient to be able to live free of the effects of medication.

How long does therapy last?
For relief of superficial symptoms, therapy can take a few sessions. For removal of deeper layers of armor, therapy can last for several years.

Can therapy be performed by anyone?
In order to become qualified as a medical orgonomist, the physician must be accepted, trained and approved by the American Board of Medical Orgonomy. In addition, non-physicians can be trained to qualify in the practice of social orgonomy.

How is medical and social orgonomy different from other therapies?
It is based on an understanding of the psychiatric discoveries of Wilhelm Reich, M.D. These are:
The biological energy that is the basis of living functions
The armor that interferes with it’s movement
The orgasm function that regulates it

How can I find out more about this form of therapy?

Post-Election Stress Disorder

The widespread protests and violence by leftists on all social levels including campus students in response to the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States is an example of people suffering from Post-Election Stress Disorder (PESD), the latest symptom of the anti-authoritarian transformation of American society.

Aside from engaging in social demonstrations, the syndrome consists in people huddling together in “support groups” bemoaning their fate and commiserating with each other.
For these protestors,Trump’s persona contains all of the characteristics of authoritarian figures that are reviled and feared by leftists.

What these protesters actually fear, however, is taking charge of their own lives and advancing themselves. They fear the opportunities that that they have to benefit from living freely in America.

A symptom of their underlying need for less personal and social freedom is that these protesters are oblivious – clueless – of the terrifying emotional forces within them that are underlying their protestations.

Many have a serious work disturbance. Contemptuous of others who know and work for what they want, they demand the exact opposite of freedom: greater security. There is a poorly disguised desire to be cared for by society because they are emotionally too crippled and irresponsible to care for themselves. A sign of their work disturbance is that the thought of working for what they want rarely occurs to them because they are too caught up in protesting.

Full of disdain for the police who risk their lives protecting them and others, and inflamed by the media to act out in socially destructive demonstrations, they often break the law and choose to side with criminals. Justifying their actions, through the morality of political correctness as a “moral right,” they accuse the hated authority figures of racism and worse. They would rather put their energy into protesting social causes and be mindlessly influenced by leftist ideologues than focus on what they can do to improve their lives – a sign of severe ocular armor.

The Political Advantages of the Left

The following are some of the advantages of the political left in today’s world:
1) All public interactions take place on the social surface and leftist’s are able to operate successfully from that layer of their bio-psychic apparatus.
2) Because today’s society is anti-authoritarian, the political mainstream has shifted far to the left. Partisan battles involving social issues are often fought between political opponents who belong in varying degrees on the political left and therefore, espouse different degrees of the same basic socialistic ideas.
3) The shift of the political mainstream to the far left has legitimized the radical left in politics. Now called “progressives” or “socialists,” these radicals, in full view of a clueless public, are able run as candidates in the Democratic Party in the 2016 election for the office of president of the United States and include the current President himself.
4) Arriving at decisions collectively is comfortable for leftists. When it comes to politics, they are herd animals and behave as a group at election time. As long as they are being taken care of collectively by their leaders there is little effort involved in just going along with the tide of the mainstream left’s welfarist thinking. By being politically mindless and taking the easy way out, they can maintain their self-complacency, avoid looking at the degradation in the world and still believe in their political claptrap.
5) For the same reason, leftists cannot learn anything from the past. In the September 2016 Issue of the New Criterion, Gary Saul Morson writes: “Our knowledge of Bolshevik horrors expanded dramatically when, after the fall of the Soviet Union, its archives were opened. Jonathan Brent and Yale University Press brought out volume after volume of chilling documents, but public opinion did not noticeably change. How many readers of The New York Times know about its role in covering up the worst of Stalin’s crimes and earning a Pulitzer Prize (still unreturned) for doing so?
I understand being so carried away by Communist ideals that one denies or justifies millions of deaths. What amazes me is that people and publications who have done so still feel entitled to criticize others from a position of moral superiority.”

The reason that the author of this article is amazed about the leftists behavior of moral superiority is that he lacks an understanding of Dr. Elsworth Baker’s discovery of socio-political characterology first published in chapter 13 in his book, “Man in the Trap.”.

The Political Effects of the Two Party System’s Demise

Knowledge of socio-political character is essential to understand and prevent the destructiveness in American politics.

The two paty system in America functioned in the past authoritarian social order to maintain a balance of power between the opposing ideological forces of the left and right. It began to disintegrate around 1960 accompanying the anti-authoritarian transformation of society. This resulted in the political mainstream in the entire nation to shift leftward. The Democratic Party became infiltrated by politicians from the extreme left.They were pseudo-liberal/communist characters who took over that party. This produced an imbalance between the opposing forces of the left and right and the two party system was destroyed.

The shift to the left in the American mainstream is responsible for how a full-fledged communist masquerading as a bona-fide liberal character was able to win the American presidential elections in 2008 and 2012. It also explains how two of the least qualified candidates were chosen by the ever-clueless public to be their president. One is a leftist extremist with psychopathic, criminal tendencies; the other is an individual with poor impulse control and questionable good judgement. Both are populist candidates catering to the whims of “the people.”

Once again, the emotional plague is victorious as American politics has lost any semblance of rationality. Americans can now look forward to an even sicker, multiparty, european-style political system in future elections.

Understanding Trump’s Strategy for 2016

From a socio-political standpoint, Trump is a conservative character who is also a populist. To have a sense of Trump’s strategy for the presidency requires an understanding of socio-political characterology and the antiauthoritarian transformation of Western society.

In the past authoritarian era, there were roughly equal numbers of liberals and conservatives in both political parties. This is how the two party system worked to maintain a balance of power between the opposing ideological forces of the left and right.

With the anti-authoritarian transformation that started in America around 1960, the Democratic Party began it’s shift to the extreme political left and the Republican Party soon followed and moved leftward. The significance of this so-called socio-political red-shift was that there was no longer any ideological difference between the two parties. Politicians in the Democratic Party continued to peddle their outworn socialist programs and like-minded politicians in the Republican Party tried to play “catch up” by promoting their own version of leftist-oriented policies.

People who were fed up with the old system of “politics as usual” began wanting something new from their politicians. They looked to outsiders like Donald Trump as someone who seemed to not buy into what was being offered by traditional party politicians.

But, the result of the anti-authoritarian transformation of society was that the two party system became a thing of the past and people are more clueless than ever about it’s demise.

By contrast, what Trump intuitively understood in this new environment was that in order to make contact and win over the electorate people must be realigned not according to conventional political parties but, on a deeper, more inclusive level according to their individual, pre-existing socio-political character structure.

This is where an understanding of socio-political characterology is essential. Based on people’s socio-political character structure, liberals and conservatives have diametrically opposed ways of viewing the world. The liberal relates to his environment primarily from his intellect. He is a collectivist and, in the past authoritarian era, had a mechanistic view of the world. The conservative relates to his environment primarily from his emotions. He has a selective attitude toward others and a mystical view of the world.

In order to win, Trump must convince characterologic conservatives, like himself, that he is one of them. This is where his anti-intellectual, emotional, shooting-from-the-hip manner and his strong pro-American bias are a plus. However, from a bio-psychiatric perspective, Trump is either an oral unsatisfied, phallic narcissistic character or a manic depressive character. Regarding his diagnosis, the important questions are these: Is he capable of controlling the destructiveness to his political reputation as a leader resulting from his shooting-off at the mouth? Is he capable to hear the ideas of others? These questions go directly to the heart of his capacity for the good judgement that is a requirement for the job.

Another unknown factor is that liberals no longer adhere only to the mechanistic view of the world. They have embraced mysticism as part of their leftist armamentarium in the “save the world,” “green” environmental movements. With the decline of traditional, religious mysticism, the political left has gained a silent but powerful force in the ideology of secular mysticism that Trump with all his usual contentiousness must contend with.

The Cornerstones of Social Orgonomy

To make any sense of what is going on in this chaotic world of ours an understanding of the cornerstones of the science of social orgonomy is essential. They are:

1) The three layer of the bio-psychic apparatus.

2) The emotional plague.

3) Socio-political character structure.

4) The anti-authoritatian transformation of our society.

A course in social orgonomy will be given by the American College of Orgonomy in the near future. It will be based, in part, on my forthcoming book, “Clueless.”

Why Can’t They “Get It” ?

Why is the anti-authoritariam transformation of Western society happening in front of everyone’s face and no one recognizes it?The reason is that people are caught up in their own political battle between the left and the right and, because of that, each side has a vested interest in not seeing it.

The left cannot see the transformation because they are part and parcel of the forefront that is endorsing it.The right cannot see the transformation because their character structure is the product of what remains of the authoritarian social order which they are desperately trying to preserve.

This is another destructive example of our “politics as usual.”

What is Emotional Health?

Because people are essentially clueless about what constitutes emotional health, a clarification is necessary. The following characterization of emotions and of emotional health is provided from a medical-psychiatric point of view:

What are emotions?
Emotions are the perception of bio-energy excitation moving radially (in and out) in the organism. There are five basic emotions: Love, Fear, Rage, Sadness and Longing.

What is emotional health?
In an healthy individual, emotional energy moves freely in the organism. The build-up of energy beyond a certain point (the lumination point) gives rise to sexual excitation and a drive for discharge of excess energy in the genital orgasm. This capacity is the criterion of emotional health.

What is emotional sickness?
In an unhealthy individual the movement of bio-energy is impeded by emotional blocks or armor. Since the capacity for complete orgastic discharge is disturbed, the residual, undischarged energy leads to the symptoms of emotional illness.

What are emotional blocks/ armor?
Emotional blocks are the immobilization (stasis) of bio-energy in various organs of the body. It is mostly held in the musculature (muscular armor) and the person’s character (character armor).

How are emotional blocks/armor recognized?
Some common manifestations are disturbances in thinking and emotions and symptoms such as anxiety, depression etc. well-known in psychiatry.

What are the effects of these emotional blocks?
Emotional blocks result in sexual disturbances and other psychiatric symptoms as well as every kind of pathological social behavior and thinking.

Are these emotional blocks responsible for the political conflicts between the political left and the right?
Yes. They are responsible for both individual problems and socially based problems.

What is the origin of these emotional blocks?
Emotional blocks (armor) are formed during the individual’s developmental period from birth to around the age of five or later.

How do these emotional blocks happen?
They are the result of life-negative, socially destructive influences on a young child’s emotional development.

Can people’s emotional blocks be removed?
This can be performed by medical orgonomists who are physicians trained in the practice of medical orgone therapy. It can also be performed by social orgonomists who are social workers trained in the field of social orgonomy.

Can these emotional blocks be removed by anyone?
It takes many years of experience in the training programs given by the American College of Orgonomy for a physician or social worker to become qualified to work responsibly in these disciplines.

How is medical and social orgonomy different from other therapies?
They are based on the three psychiatric discoveries of Wilhelm Reich, M.D.: 1. The biological energy that is at the basis of living functions which he called orgone; 2.The armor that interferes with it’s movement; 3. The orgasm function that regulates it. In addition, therapy is based on the ability of the therapist to think functionally, not mechanistically or mystically.
