Why the Far-left Has to Erase America’s Past

Far-left ideologues reject America’s historical past because they hate the freedom that the American people have to live as they please. Therefore, almost anything that happened in the authoritarian social order prior to around 1960 in America is categorically rejected according to their anti-authoritarian mantra. This hatred is constantly expressed by rewriting and distorting America’s past history and by destroying the reputation of every great American public figure with authority that lived in the past. By having Americans forget their historical past, their objective is to turn America into a socialist state similar to the defunct Soviet system where authority resided with the politically centralized State. This Far-left’s tactic of the emotional plague is designed to destroy the life of the American people.

Because of severe ocular armor and their highly intellectualized defensive system of thinking, the Far-left’s hatred of authority on the individual level blinds them from using their eyes to see America’s historical past and its greatness without distortion and in true perspective.

The Far-left’s Case to Impeach President Trump

What is the energy source behind the far-left’s movement to impeach President Trump? People on the far-left seem to respect authority but they do so out of a fear of directly expressing their own underlying, anti-authoritarian, hateful emotions. Because of this fear, they will twist any social issue that can be used to justify their preconceived beliefs that are supported by their morality of political correctness.

But, when the pressure behind their emotional tension becomes intolerable and the opportunity presents itself, their highly intellectualized moral code of political correct behavior breaks down. Then, their underlying hatred of authority breaks through their armor into the social surface in full force and must be directly expressed.

However, the source of the hatred that demands expression against President Trump of these far-leftists has nothing whatsoever to do with him. It arises from intolerable feelings of hatred within themselves related to their own, personal lives and this is what must be avoided by being expressed politically. This is the reason that these Trump haters are driven to find some kind of evidence that they can use to justify expressing their personal feelings of hatred outwardly by incriminating him of some crime – any crime – to destroy him.

How the Representative System of Government in America Collapsed

The representative form of government in America that existed for over two hundred years was based on the authority and responsibility of individuals on all levels of social organization from the family to the government, a form of social armor that conformed to armor in the average individual living in the authoritarian era.

This was the situation until around 1960 when the authoritarian society began to fall apart resulting in today’s anti-authoritarian society. Accompanying the anti-authoritarian transformation, the structure of the authoritarian family began to break down and, as a result, young people were left adrift as their individual armor also began to change. Increased levels of anxiety resulted in the formation of ocular armor which replaced muscular armor in the younger generation. As a result of the breakdown of the authoritarian family and of individual armor, young people were left feeling helpless and disoriented. Having no parental authority to rely on and guide them, they began looking to the authority of outside groups including politicians for answers.

This was accompanied by a change in the function of politics. Instead of representing the needs of responsible people, politicians became the ones who assumed a substitute parental role as leaders for the emotionally immature, irresponsible young people. They told them what they needed to hear and pretended to be their caretakers (“hope and care”). This was the formula for the rise to power of the New Left politicians in the Democratic Party at the time of the beginning of the anti-authoritarian transformation and why the two-party system in government can no longer function.

The Social Invasiveness of the Anti-authoritarian Transformation

Accompanying the break-up of the authoritarian family spearheaded by the far-left’s attack on the authority of the father in family life, the emotional plague’s invasiveness of American society is as widespread and relentless today as much as it continues to be unrecognized. Here are more destructive social consequences of the anti-authoritarian transformation:

1) The decline of patriotism in young people. According to a Gallup poll released just before the Fourth of July of this year, the share of participants who felt “extremely proud” to be an American was the lowest in the poll’s 18-year history- just 47% down from 70% in 2003. The poll found that ” the younger you are, the less likely you are to say that patriotism is a ‘very important’ value”.

From a bio-psychiatric perspective, young people who are not in touch with their good fortune and gratitude to be living in America and who don’t feel a sense of pride to be an American live in a severe state of cluelessness. They have little if any emotional contact with their biological core. The great danger to all Americans is that these youngster’s inability to feel grateful renders them incapable of defending their freedom to live as they please if the threat to America ever becomes real.

2) The rise in the suicide rate of young people. The suicide rate among young people ages 10-14 years old has increased 56% between 2007 and 2014 according to the report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since 2007, the suicide rates in general have increased in all ages and ethnic groups during the following decade.

The reason for the rising suicide rate is unclear to child and adolescent psychiatrists. No information is being given about the early history or about the family lives of these young people, factors that are crucial to their emotional development. Not one word is said about the emotional destructiveness to youngsters resulting from the absence of contact with parental authority figures typical in today’s anti-authoritarian families. To make matters worse, leftist ideologues are never taken to task for the harm they do by systematically attacking what still remains intact of parental authority today.

3) The helplessness of mental health professionals. The people whose responsibility it is to deal with the social problems resulting from the anti-authoritarian transformation are incapable of effectively doing their job because they lack the capacity for functional thinking about the social events that are happening. What is required is a method of thinking – functional thinking – that corresponds to the way nature functions. This is contained in the science of social orgonomy.

Wag the Dog

The operation of the emotional plague has taken armored people’s mechanistic-mystical way of thinking and turned every great human achievement into a social disaster. Here are some examples:

The Industrial Revolution of the 19th harnessed large amounts of mechanical energy for the benefit of mankind. A consequence was the production of enormous amounts of wealth in a few people and of sharp differences in the living standards of the population as a whole. Social scientists came along by declaring that since all humans were no different from each other and in order to eliminate the inequality, the wealth produced by the machines should be divided equally with everyone. The publics mindless acceptance of this type of mechanistic reasoning was how the socialist movement first started to foment social trouble in America.

In the middle of the 20th century, with the development of electronic science on the microscopic scale unheard of advances happened in the technology of communication and in the development of computers for the benefit of everyone. Some computer scientists came along and declared that the mechanical computer could rival and even surpass the reasoning powers of the human mind. This led to the idea of “artificial intelligence” (AI) in computer technology, the mystical belief that eventually, human judgement could be replaced by the operations of robots.

Around the same time, with the advent of psychopharmacology, psychiatrists began turning away from having personal contact with their patients and increasingly began using psychotropic drugs to treat them. They replaced the diagnostic system based on an understanding of the whole patient in favor of one focusing exclusively on symptoms. The upshot was that today psychiatric diagnosis and treatment is almost entirely symptom-based, pharmacological and mechanistic. The patient who has the symptom is ignored.

As mechanistic thinking continues to invade and be dominant in the natural sciences, armored humans are slowly and imperceptibly being adapted to function robotically according to the machines that they are creating. This is an entirely new phenomenon in the emotional plague’s destructive attack on human life. As a result, many armored people are in the process of being transformed into a new, neutered, machine-like breed which is unlike any creature that has existed in the history of civilization. More and more, the “tail” (the mechanistic thinker) is wagging the “dog” (the armored, robot-like human).

The Anti-authoritarian Transformation From the Bio-psychiatric Perspective

The past authoritarian social order was based on the combined authority’s of the father, the enforcer of the authoritarian moral code, and the mother, the bearer of that moral code. The formation of the child’s Oedipus Complex along authoritarian lines was safeguarded in intact families by carrying out their parental responsibilities. In the past social order, respect for authority and, in particular, the authoritarian moral code of sexual repression prior to marriage, was the rule.

The anti-authoritarian transformation of American society started around 1960. Around that time, the functions of the traditional parental roles in child-rearing and the structure of the authoritarian family itself became broken. Accompanying the political agitation for the “sexual revolution” movement led by leftist ideologues, young people’s demands for greater sexual freedom was regarded as the magical solution to their yearning for sexual happiness. How this mystical state of happiness was to be realized was never discussed. The inevitable failure of their dreams was the background of the hellish social nightmare that occurred in college and university campuses throughout the nation in the ’60s and in the following decades.

At the same time, according to the new morality of sexual permissiveness, parents had to give up their right to be responsible for their children’s behavior. This resulted, in effect, in the social ostracism (castration) of the authoritarian, “sex-negative” father not only from his own home but from all areas of social life where authority was required. With the new anti-authoritarian, anything goes morality, parents were left feeling impotent while their children experienced social alienation and personal disorientation. Instead of growing up to be independent adults, young people became arrested in their adolescence. Their frustrations often led to all kinds of perverse sexual activities or dependency on illicit drugs for emotional relief (“sex, drugs and rock’n roll”). In effect, the misfiring of young people’s sexual longing into substitute activities was the tragic fate of the post-World War II children, the Baby Boomers, and the generations that followed.

Another consequence of the transformation was that the social mainstream shifted politically to the far-left of center. Today, young people’s sexual longings, frustrations and miseries are still evaded as many of them are looking for political answers from the left for their personal problems. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and many other political freedom-peddlers from the far-left, are quick to appear on the stage promising outworn (“heaven on earth”) socialist answers to attract as many of the politically gullible, young masses as they can.

As the leftist movement sweeps across the nation and the polarization between the political left and the right becomes irreversable, the demise of the two-party system in America is becoming a certainty. Far-left radicals have successfully infiltrated and taken control of the Democratic Party. With their control of that party together with the political support of many clueless young people, these combined forces are set to destroy what still remains healthy in American society .

“The Commies are Coming!”

In a poem written around the beginning of the 20th century by the American Poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow entitled “Paul Revere’s Ride”, the poet describes Revere’s warning to his fellow Americans about the advance of the British forces during the Revolutionary War with the rousing words while on horseback riding through the countryside to mobilize the people: “the British are coming!”. The famous poem was taught and remembered by every school child growing up during the past authoritarian era.

In today’s anti-authoritarian society, children are systematically being deprived of a perspective of historical knowledge to give them a sense of their relationship to their country, to feel respect, loyalty and gratitude to be living in this great nation. In effect, American children are being raised to be clueless about their core feelings and their relationship to their past history – a form of brainwashing. Moreover, their upbringing renders them oblivious to the events that are currently happening in their country as a result of the onslaught by far-leftist political ideologues in and out of government that have actively infiltrated American society.

Imagine if someone cried out with a sense of urgency, the rallying cry, “the Commies are coming!” (to destroy America) in today’s anti-authoritarian society what would happen? The person would either be shouted down as being politically incorrect or a lunatic, treated with contempt or the words would fall on deaf ears.

America’s Wars Against the Emotional Plague

America has been actively battling the emotional plague on two fronts for decades; Militarily and knowingly in the Middle East and elsewhere against the Islamic forces on the political far-right; Ideologically and unknowingly against the forces of the political far-left within America itself. Victory on both fronts is vital for America’s survival.

The operation of the emotional plague is different in both. On a social level, the difference is comparable to that which exists on a medical level between inflammatory diseases, on the one hand, and degenerative diseases such as cancer, on the other. The danger of the Black Fascist on the extreme right is through aggressive and open invasion of the host nation and instilling terror in its population – terrorism. The affliction on society is is easily recognized. Its effect is to rapidly induce fear and paralysis. By contrast, the destructiveness of the far-left, Red Fascist, (communist) is insidious and gradual. It destroys its victim, (for example, the American Nation) by identifying and joining forces with established, political left-leaning political and liberal educational institutions in America such as the Democratic Party and Universities throughout the nation and pretending to be one of them, honest-to-goodness, loyal Americans. The result of this tactic is to slowly induce emotional deadness (cluelessness) and a putrefaction, (rottenness) in the entire society.

The great danger for America is that the existence of the emotional plague from the political extreme left is not able to be recognized by the majority of the public. This is the subject of my forthcoming book, “Clueless”).

Recognizing the Far-left Plague’s Mode of Operation

How many young Americans today are familiar with the words and music to “God Bless America” or The National Anthem? How many of them are capable of feeling love for America and being proud to be an American?

With the continued anti-authoritarian transformation of society and the breakdown of the two party system in America, the relationship between the political left, represented by the Democratic Party, and the political right, represented by the Republican Party, has turned from attractive opposition into antagonistic opposition. The institutions and programs that are for the preservation of the American nation are actively and systematically being undermined by the far-left through political subversion, activism and brainwashing.

The far-left provides the illusion that it is on the side of genuine social change and progress and the far-left media is on board with this strategy because the policies seem novel, exciting and considered newsworthy to a clueless public. Social issues that can be used to incite an element of social anxiety or humanitarian concern such as the destruction of the earth’s atmosphere by human activity (“climate change”) or open borders for all immigrants are actively promoted and are immediately front page news.

However, all of the left’s lofty social and political programs are purely idealistic. They contain nothing of substance but they have one thing in common: They are, in effect, opposed to the rule of law, are in favor of the continued destruction of the American way of life and its system of government and its replacement with a socialist-style social order similar to the now defunct Soviet system.

The Emotional Plague’s Infestation of the Democratic Party

In November 1965, around the time of the transformation of American Society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian, the Supreme Court ruled that individuals may refuse to register as members of the Communist Party as part of their Constitutional right against self-incrimination. This decision seriously weakened the McCarran Act which required not only registration of Communist Party members but also authorized emergency detention of potential subversives in the event of attack or internal insurrection

Today, America is facing the disastrous consequences of this ruling. The emotional plague in the form of several leftist American groups, Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) and the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) have openly organized an alliance to take over the Democratic Party at every level.

In a May 2018 memo to CPUSA members, party leader, John Bachtell emphasized that its group was collaborating with several left groups and progressive activists to promote unity and coalition building. He stated that including the Democratic Party in its invasive operations to control America was key.

Today, the CPUSA has infiltrated the Democratic Party across the country. Communists are openly and secretly working in Democratic campaigns to the point that it is almost impossible to see the difference between the CPUSA and Democratic Party programs. Disguised and appearing to be identical to the host organization serves to render people confused and defenseless. The emotional plague continues to live unopposed because people are clueless about its existence.

The Relationship Between the Far-left Radical and the True Liberal

The functional relationship between the far-left Radical and the moderate, true Liberal is a dynamic one of attractive opposition. Both political groups belong to and operate within the same Democratic Party. Both operate from different positions on the political left and move politically together in the same direction to the extreme left. The leftist Radical is impatient and moves aggressively to achieve his destructive political agenda. The Liberal follows and supports him compliantly and passively. The Radical is motivated by feelings of hatred and revenge toward all Americans on the political right with a barely concealed wish to bring down the entire democratic system of government in America. The true Liberal retains his feelings of loyalty to America but follows the lead of the Radical to destroy America because he is motivated by his unresolved, feelings of personal guilt that gets displaced and acted out in his leftist political ideology. What is being played out between them in front of everyones eyes is another step in the decline and destruction of American democracy.

The Destruction of the Authoritarian Family

An understanding of the three layers of the human bio-psychiatric apparatus (the biological core, the destructive secondary layer and the surface or superficial layer) is an essential functional tool that must be used to know what is happening in today’s world. Also necessary is an awareness of the transformation of society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian that started in the early 1960s, a process that is actively destroying what remains of the past social order.

One of the transformation’s early casualties was the complete or partial destruction of the authoritarian family. It fragmented the family by destroying not only the pathological, secondary layer elements such as sexual repression, but also its healthy core functions. In effect, the baby (the biological core) was thrown out with the bath water (the destructive, secondary layer). The generations of young people that came out of these families during and after the transformation were left feeling emotionally adrift. Labelled by sociologists as baby boomers, generation x, millennials etc. according to their time of birth during and after the transformation, these products of the anti-authoritarian era are more out of touch with themselves and the world than the people who were brought up earlier. Their cluelessness places them in danger of being manipulated and controlled politically by today’s far-left “saviors”.

These generations are the social symptoms of the transformation. Some of their individual symptoms include the politicalization of young people who are looking for answers to their personal problems in politics, the deterioration in young people’s respect for authority figures, the decline in social manners, the rise in drug addictions for emotional relief, and a rise in the homeless population throughout America, for instance. Unrecognized by most people, all of these destructive social symptoms are the consequence of a single, catastrophic event, the breakdown of the authoritarian social order and, with it, the destruction of the authoritarian family that existed for thousands of years.

Politicians have no answers. A functional understanding on a bio-social level is required. The central focus must be the restoration of the biological family unit which includes the contactfull application of natural parental authority in child rearing.

The Destructiveness of Mechanistic-mystical Thinking in Psychiatry

In the lead article of the Review section, September 14-15 issue of The Wall Street Journal entitled, ‘Will Your Uploaded Mind Still Be You?’, the author, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Princeton University attempts to compare the natural science of psychiatry with the operation of a mechanical computer to provide an understanding of how the brain works. He postulates that structural causes in the brain are sufficient to explain biological functions and equates the structure of the brain with the human mind (a psychic function). As a neuroscientist, he is convinced that the brain is comparable to a computer and that “mind uploading,”…”preserving a persons consciousness in a digital afterlife,” will one day happen because “there are no laws of physics that stand in the way.” It just depends on technology that has not yet been invented.

This is an illustration of how the mechanistically oriented scientist resorts to mystical thinking to support his preformed mechanical hypothesis that requires an explanation: The neurons of the brain are “working parts” that are used over and over to “create complexity” …”Information” flows … through “vast connected networks in complex and unpredictable patterns, [somehow] creating the mind” (italics added).

The error of applying mechanistic-mystical thinking to biological functions has been a stumbling block in psychiatry for ages. It will continue until human beings are capable of thinking functionally. The error consists in believing that the structure of the brain determines its biological function. In fact, the reverse is true; biological function determines the brain’s organization. The persistence of this erroneous idea results in scientists remaining clueless about the fact that their armored way of thinking is itself a dead-end. The latest example of this mechanical thinking is that the functioning of the brain is compared to the operation of a machine-like computer.

Armored people will go to any to means to defend themselves from emotionally experiencing their biological roots even to the extent of identifying themselves with robotic computers. The destructive consequences of reducing human life to a machine passes by completely unnoticed.

The Functional Understanding of the Idea of Soul

There is always some reality to all human ideas no matter how mystically distorted they are. The idea of the soul is such an expression of mystical thinking because a biological function (people’s contact with their biological core) is replaced with a psychic, otherworldly idea (“soul”). Demystifying ideas by finding the core of truth in them would go a long way to help people not to become confused and infected with the emotional plague. It would also be an approach to teach them how to think functionally.

The Far-left’s Systematic Destruction of America

The systematic destruction of America by the emotional plague through political activism of the Far-left, in front of everyone’s eyes, is eroding our society in every possible way and yet few people are able to take a step back to see what is happening. Here are some of the ways:

Emotionally, by eliminating feelings of heart-felt love for America.

Historically, by the destruction and rewriting of America’s history.

Geographically, by the elimination of America’s borders.

Economically, by eliminating the free market and replacing it with the socialist state.

Developmentally, by delayed emotional maturation.

Educationally, by replacing individual freedom of thought with groupthink.

Morally, by giving every kind of human thought and behavior equal value (“different strokes for different folks”).

Psychologically, by pretending to be pro-American.

Politically, by infiltrating and controlling the Democratic Party resulting in the destruction of the American two party system.

Socially, by destroying individual authority and replacing it with the collective authority of “Big Brother”.

All of these symptoms of the emotional plague are the result of a single cataclysmic event, the transformation of American society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian.

The Politics of Homosexuality

It is not enough that the function of genital heterosexuality has been minimized by placing it on a social par with homosexuality. The next step in the process of degradation is to eliminate the emotional and biological importance of genital heterosexuality altogether by attempting to scientifically demonstrate that homosexuality is biologically determined.

These attempts have been unsuccessful. Taking into account all the genetic markers that may play a role in homosexuality, one international team of researchers found that genetic variation could account for up to 8% to 25% of same sex behavior in the population studied. When they pooled all the markers to come up with a score for an individual person, the genetic variation explained less than 1% making it practically impossible to predict a person’s sexual orientation behavior based on his or her genome.

But studies such as this one are not enough to convince some people that homosexuality has nothing to do with a genetic predisposition because they have an ideological predisposition to believe otherwise. Like it or not, the inescapable conclusion is that, as of now, the only known factor that determines homosexuality is environmental. Understanding the psycho-sexual factors that determine childhood sexual development would go a long way in providing this knowledge (see “Man in the Trap” by Elsworth F. Baker, M.D.)

The Emotional Plague and the Idea of Sin

Religion comes close to recognizing the existence of the emotional plague in the Christian idea of sin. In it, there is an awareness of the deadly aspects of the armored human condition, people’s secondary, destructive drives. Also, in the idea of sin there is a certain degree of contact with the biological core providing people with a sense of responsibility for their own lives. However, the idea of sin is limited because it is bogged down in opposing moralistic views of what is right and wrong and because its origin is mystified in the idea of original sin. Simply attributing a person’s destructive behavior to sinfulness is, therefore, a destructive example of confused, mystical thinking. It leads to further problems when people with a liberal character structure reject the idea of sin altogether.

The understanding of the emotional plague is outside the realm of armored, moralistic thinking. It is a term that has a specific meaning in the medical and social sciences. Accurately understanding the emotional plague requires knowledge of the three layers of the human bio-psychic apparatus, the biological core, the destructive middle or secondary layer and the superficial layer or facade. The emotional plague is people’s socially destructive expressions from their secondary layer. Knowledge of the emotional plague requires the ability to think functionally about the destructive consequences of armored people’s ways of thinking and living.

Why is the Emotional Plague Not Seen? Part II

The emotional plague is a scientific term that has two components, a somatic one, emotional destructiveness, and a psychic one, evil. It can appear on all levels of social organization from individuals to groups including political parties. People resist recognizing the existence and destructiveness of the plague partly because the disease is present in latent form and can appear in anyone under the right circumstances. Moreover, both components must first be recognized in oneself before one can have a true understanding of the plague’s destructive operation in others. A further obstacle is that, until recently, a functional understanding of human emotional life in determining social behavior, both healthy and sick, has not existed. This knowledge is made available to the public in the new science of social orgonomy.

Our Fractured Nation

Accompanying people’s breakthrough of unconscious emotions from their destructive secondary layer to the social surface, the result of the anti-authoritarian transformation of Western Society, their personal ideologies have emerged to become a powerful socio-political force. As a result, the American Nation is in jeopardy of becoming fragmented and destroyed along ideological, partisan lines of the right and the left.

The ideology of the political right stands for conserving what remains and is of value in the life of the American people. This includes their feelings of love for the American Nation. The ideology of the political far-left stands for a wholesale rejection of these values and emotions. Under the guise of “progressivism” its goal is to dismantle American democracy in a stepwise manner and replace it with a top-down socialist governmental system reminiscent of the defunct Soviet Union.

Like any infectious disease, the emotional plague survives on destroying healthy forms of human life. Always present, it thrives when unopposed and it recedes when recognized and counteracted. The far-left’s ideological destructiveness of American life is being done deliberately, systematically and brazenly in front of everyones eyes and only a few people are able to see its evil and the social pus that it produces.

Psychic Dynamics are Identical on the Individual and Social Levels

The relationship of psychic forces to each other in the individual are commonly recognized by all psychiatrists and psychologists. What is not recognized is that these pathological forces are present on the social level as well. For example, on the individual level, the emotional provocativeness of the masochist pretending to be a victim in a sadomasochistic relationship is clearly evident to any well-trained mental health professional. What remains unrecognized and evaded is that this same kind of highly destructive, pathological, emotional relationship can occur between groups of people on a social level expressed in their socio-political activity. Examples are Black and White racial supremacists at the extremes of the socio-political spectrum accusing their polar opposites of racism.

Until now, there has been no understanding of the emotional forces that operate in group processes. The new, functional knowledge contained in the science of social orgonomy is a step toward opening up the possibility of introducing this vital knowledge to the public. These forces include, in particular, the operation of the emotional plague.

The Deterioration of Contact in the Medical Profession

I graduated from medical school in 1959 during the authoritarian era. At that time, every young physician had a “doctor’s bag” with all sorts of medical paraphernalia in it such as a stethoscope, an ophthalmoscope, tongue depressors, etc. because, in those days, it was common for doctors to make house calls. Sixty years later, in today’s anti-authoritarian society, it is almost impossible for someone to get an appointment with a physician let alone receive a return phone call from him.

How did this change come about? Early on in their medical education medical students today are taught to view the patient as a machine composed of individual organ systems, organs, etc. By focusing exclusively on the broken part of the “machine” (the “disease”) they lose contact with the human being that has the affliction. Their mechanistic training makes them fall prey for the entrance of large corporations into the practice of medicine by hiring doctors and expecting them to practice medicine according to the time-saving, quantitative rules used in the business world. This fits in, hand and glove, with the mechanistic training of the physician. Private medical practice became transformed into corporate medical practice, another casualty of the anti-authoritarian transformation of our society.

The takeover of medical practice by large corporations is an example of the intrusion of socialism, corporate socialism into the practice of medicine. What is lost is the authority of the doctor in the way he wants to practice medicine and the quality of the doctor-patient relationship. What is gained is a layer of social armor that dictates how medicine must be practiced.

The Functional View of Evil and Sin

With the tool of functional thinking it is possible to provide a natural scientific understanding for the mystical concepts of evil and sin. Evil is an objective property. Sin is a subjective property. Originating from the destructive, secondary layer of armored human beings, evilness and sinfulness are variations of their common functioning principle (CFP), the emotional plague. They are real physical functions not just metaphysical concepts.

The Emotional Plague is the Disease; Domestic Terrorism is a Symptom

In the medical treatment of any disease, success depends on having an accurate diagnosis. Short of this, the only treatment possible is symptomatic. The same principle applies to the treatment of diseases in the realm of social pathology. Calling mass shootings acts of terrorism is inaccurate because the pathologic source is generally unrecognized and it does not reveal the true nature of the underlying disease process. Terrorism is one of many symptoms of the pathologic human condition, emotional plague, a social disease of armored humans that can appear in many forms from both political extremes to the left and the right.

Before seeing the whole picture of why these latest eruptions of the plague seemingly from the political right occurred, it is first necessary to understand the functional relationship of emotional plague between Black Fascism from the political far-right and Red Fascism from the political far-left. Black fascists typically react openly with violence to political activity from the left. Hence, they are referred to as reactionaries. By contrast, Red fascists are typically political activists and provocateurs. Their lives are spent actively undermining what still remains intact of the old authoritarian social order. This drives individuals with a Black Fascist character structure to engage in acts of brutality. The recent rise in mass shootings from the political extreme right are a reaction to the relentless, decades- long political agitation by political activists on the Left. From a functional viewpoint, the opposing forces of the left and the right are in a relationship of attractive opposition.

The rise in political extremism and the polarization of politics today are signs of our current social disintegration. It started in America with the anti-authoritarian transformation and the political shift of the social mainstream to the left of center. This shift was bound to trigger a political reaction from the political Right that is becoming increasingly evident today with the rise in the frequency of mass shootings.

The present social situation in chronic form is strikingly similar to what happened in Germany in acute form following its defeat in World War I. The social chaos and the economic devastation of that nation resulted in the infestation of the emotional plague, Red Fascism (communism) from the left. As a reaction to it and in an attempt to eradicate it led to a different manifestation of the plague, Black Fascism (Naziism) from the right. Using the tool of social orgonomy, it may be possible to prevent history from repeating itself.

The Far-left’s Mystification of Language

To mystify is to take something real and distort it into something unreal or an ideal. The Far-left mystifies language by distorting ordinary words and ideas and elevating them with a higher, moral meaning for political purposes. In effect, the mystical idea is misrepresented as reality in the following way: 1) Take a word – any word -, 2) Distort its original meaning by mystifying it, 3) Politicizes it. This air-tight formula is another one of the ways that the emotional plague from the Far-left has found to attack life in America.

For example, the concept of diversity, as in “to make diverse”, is used and popularized by academia and the political left so that it can be made to support the democratic idea of equality for all as a social ideal. First used in the “affirmative action,” “equal opportunity” movements, the purpose of this mystical notion was to give minority applicants to higher education a special boost,

However, this kind of diversification in college entrance policies did not work. The idea of diversity of race, ethnicity, etc. had to be given equal value to diversity in the practice of the applicant’s beliefs and feelings in the campus environment. Instead of simply taking part in America’s educational system and becoming familiar with our ways of life, minority students are lauded for the beliefs and feelings that they brought to the school. This kind of praise is not only disorienting but it has the effect of polarizing and dividing all students into opposing politically motivated camps while generating a culture of resentments – the emotional plague – in college classrooms and campuses across the nation. Experiencing the freedom of what it’s like living in America for these foreign visitors – which is unlike living in any other part of the world – is slowly disappearing in these institutions of higher education as the emotional plague from the political Far-left, the Big Lie, claims another victory in its relentless battle to destroy this once great nation.

The Rise in the Incidence of Mass Shootings

In the past authoritarian era (prior to 1960) mass shootings rarely, if ever, occurred. Accompanying the transformation of society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian in recent decades, there has been a dramatic shift in the pattern of armor in the younger generation (see below). These bio-physical changes are the primary, underlying, bio-social reasons for the dramatic rise in the incidence of mass shootings today.

In the past, authoritarian social order the individual’s destructive impulses and ideas were effectively bound (psychologically repressed) by muscular armor in the body. People generally were well-behaved on all social levels. There was a clear distinction between right and wrong. Criminals were considered a separate, but well defined segment of society.

With the anti-authoritarian transformation of society there occurred a shift in people’s armor from the musculature to the brain. The resultant increase in ocular armor was responsible for the breakdown of the armored structure of society and the rise in all degrees of impulsive behavior in people from the most benign to the most destructive forms of human acts, of which, the increase in mass shootings is the most deadly example. Accompanying the transformation, the genie – the pestilence of the emotional plague – was out of the bottle.

Whenever mass shootings occur, the emotional plague from the political left is ready to respond and inject its venom by politicizing the tragedy, pandering to emotional sympathies of the public and generating confusion and all kinds of social mischief. Some examples are advocating gun control by the government, blaming Trump for “exacerbating racial tensions”, promoting the censorship of free speech of “white supremacists” etc. All of these suggestions are in the exclusive service of destroying the vitality of what remains intact of the existing authoritarian social order, another sign of the emotional plague. As explained above, they have nothing to do with the problem of mass shootings. Therefore, all they do is to generate social anarchy and increase the possibility of more mass shootings.

The Final Stage in the Destruction of Psychiatry: Eliminate Diagnosis

The once highly respected specialty of American psychiatry is being destroyed by the emotional plague in the following stages:

Stage 1. It first started with the destruction of Sigmund Freud’s reputation as a psychiatric pioneer. Entire books were written in the 1960s in a campaign to discredit his clinical discoveries.

Stage 2. Now it was possible to reject his psychological theories of the libido and of the importance of the psychosexual factors in human emotional development.

Stage 3. These important theories were replaced with diagnostic manuals such as the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association. They were seemingly objective attempts to provide a common diagnostic language for psychiatrists based strictly on the patient’s symptoms.

Stage 4. The symptom based system could not work because any symptom can be a part of in any diagnostic category. However, it now became possible for the psychiatric researcher to declare that the DSM system is “scientifically meaningless” and to recommend that mental health professionals should “think beyond diagnosis and consider other explanations of mental distress, such as trauma and other adverse experiences.” These vague recommendations to understand psychiatric disorders were enough to reveal their uselessness. It was the final step in the rejection of psychiatry as a legitimate medical discipline.

Recognizing the importance of emotional disturbances in psychosexual development is the only way that it is possible to have a legitimate psychiatric diagnostic system. The result of rejecting the crucial importance of these psychosexual factors is that the psychiatrist is left in limbo. Having no framework for understanding the patient’s pathology in a physical manner, the science of psychiatry, in effect, is now becoming extinct.

The Elephant in the Room

One of the most obvious social phenomenon that is in front of everyone’s eyes and that no-one sees…the elephant in the room…is the transformation of Western Society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian that began around 1960. All of a sudden, human authority that had functioned for thousands of years as an organizing force responsible for maintaining and perpetuating Western civilization became a “problem” that had to be destroyed. Before this could be accomplished, the central authority figures that first had to be eliminated were its male leaders on all social levels. These we’re the ones who had the power of enforcing the sexual suppression of the authoritarian, moral code. Eliminating sexual suppression and demanding the sexual freedom of young people were believed to be the final “solutions” to humanities problems. This was behind the “sexual revolution” of the 60s. As a result of this colossal blunder all hell broke loose.

The social transformation that resulted is the background for the rise in almost all of the destructive social changes that have occurred since that time. The most important of these was the disintegration of the authoritarian family, the foundation of the authoritarian order. This social catastrophe has spawned all the other pathological social symptoms of our society. These include the public mystically looking for answers for the problems of society through politics, the rise in psychopathic and criminal activity of far-left politicians, the rise in drug related fatalities, the inability of young adults to take care of themselves as seen most dramatically in the increase in the homeless population nationwide and the general deterioration of society etc.

All of these and other symptoms of the social pathology of the transformation continue to remain enigmatic because people do not have the functional tools of social orgonomy to understand them. Knowledge of the social forces underlying the transformation and why society was transformed from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian in the first place are necessary steps that must be taken before any functional knowledge can be applied to prevent further social decline.

The Social Functions of the Anti-authoritarian Transformation

The social functions of the transformation define the ultimate goals of the emotional plague, to replace the core functions of human life with destructive, secondary layer functions.

These goals are:

  1. The elimination of the core sexual function from the primary layer and replacing it with the neutered human being based on gender ideology and other perversions from the secondary layer.
  2. The elimination of human history and replacing it with a new history, a “neo-history”.
  3. The elimination of the past authoritarian social order and replacing it with a Soviet styled, socialist state.
  4. The elimination of the old authoritarian morality based on right and wrong and replacing it with the “anything goes”, new morality of political correctness.

These old communist “solutions” of the defunct Soviet Union dressed up in new clothes are being presented today as something novel by our far-left, ideological savants of the Democratic Party for a Brave New World.

Why is the Emotional Plague Not Seen?

The true liberal cannot see the emotional plague because he lives primarily in his superficial layer and is therefore not in touch with the evilness in his own secondary destructive layer. His state of cluelessness produces the pressure of free-floating guilt that needs to be constantly relieved through mindless acts of forgiveness especially of others who operate from their secondary layer (i.e. criminals, political psychopaths etc.). His acts of “kindness” are not only destructive and highly contagious but they are self-serving because the liberal unconsciously identifies with these criminals. Having no real contact with the existence of evil in anyone, the liberal believes that all social problems can be solved through the good deeds of well-meaning people such as leftist politicians. The liberal who is mystical handles the problem of evil by distorting it and turning it into spirituality – evil spirits. In psychiatric therapy, this mindset of the liberal gives rise to the wealth of alternative therapeutic approaches such as psychic healing, etc.

Because the conservative has more contact with the deeper layers of armor than the true liberal, he believes in the reality of evil but, because of his mysticism, is unable to simultaneously see and believe in the physical existence of the emotional plague in everyday life.

People in general are resistant to getting the concept of the disease, emotional plague, because it is hard for them to feel that the illness lives in everyone including in oneself. The only way that it has been accepted in the past was mystically through the distorted Christian idea of original sinfulness. However, this way is only of limited value because it avoids getting at its source, the underlying emotional (sexual) sickness of armored humans. People are too sick to be in touch with it. This problem goes to the heart of the reason for people’s cluelessness.

The conservative mystic

The Penetration of the Emotional Plague Through the Social Surface

The source of the emotional Plague originates from the destructiveness contained in human armor (the destructive secondary layer) and, therefore, it has a separate life of its own. Every now and then, because of the economic and social sickness of armored people, the disease is able to rear its ugly head and appear undisguised on the social surface in full view of everyone.

This happened during the Great Depression of the 1930s when, because of the economic chaos of the times, leftist movements successfully entered the social mainstream pandering their socialistic nostrums and cure-alls to the American people.

It is again breaking through the social surface as a result of the anti-authoritarian transformation of society. With its inevitable breakdown of the authoritarian family and the appearance of large numbers of the younger generation on the streets unable to be independent and take care of themselves there was a rise of the shift to the political left in the social mainstream and the appearance of a new breed of “experts” on the political far-left ” who “know” the answer to the social problem – the good old-fashioned socialistic solutions that had failed over and over again in the past.

The Republican Party’s platform for the upcoming 2020 election largely depends on showing how good things are economically in America. The Democratic Party’s platform depends on showing how terrible things are socially today. Neither group is able to look at the transformation of society into anti-authoritarianism and the resultant breakdown of the authoritarian family which is the underlying reason for this social problem in the first place. Without this social problem the freedom peddlers on the left would have no socialist wares at all to peddle.

The Clueless Masses on the American Left and the Far-left Political Ideologues

Apropos the relationship of attractive opposition of the clueless masses in America to far-left political ideologues who are openly and honestly telling people that they will turn this nation into a Soviet style socialist state ( the “big lie”), here is what the political genius, Adolph Hitler, wrote in Mein Kampf,

“… In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than to the small lie, since they often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large scale falsehoods. It would never come to their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others would have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously” (italics added).    

 Hitler, a paranoid, psychopathic genius, fully understood and took advantage of people’s credulousness (cluelessness) resulting from their armored condition and was able to get through to their destructive secondary layer. From the way social conditions are declining, it is safe to conclude that absolutely nothing has been learned from Hitler’s “honesty” or even from recent past history to prevent future social calamities from happening.

Politics is a Symptom not the Disease

From a functional perspective today’s politics is a symptom of armored humans in the social realm, not the disease.

The way that the symptom of politics is manifested depends on the structure of armored society. In the past authoritarian era, social armor consisted in the opposing forces of the political left and the right being in a relationship of attractive opposition. There were roughly equal numbers of the opposing groups in the Democratic and Republican parties. Strongly pro-American, the opposing forces were equally balanced and the political system was able function fairly well.

With the transformation of society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian that began around 1960, this was no longer the case. The transformation was accompanied by the shift of the social mainstream and the Democratic Party to the left of center. No longer united in being pro-American and equally balanced, the forces of both parties became polarized into the anti-America, Democratic party of the left and the pro-America, Republican party of the right. The functional relationship of the opposing forces of social armor changed into one of antagonistic opposition. Because of this polarization the political system became dysfunctional.

With the transformation of society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian, the leftward shift in the political mainstream and people increasingly demanding political solutions to social problems it is slowly becoming clear to more people that politics is not able to provide answers to their problems.

Sooner or later, the masses of people will have to stop turning to politicians for answers and politicians will have to stop enacting new laws to “change” society. We will have to start looking inward into our own, individual character structures for an understanding of our problems. We will have to realize that we are only fooling ourselves when we look outward for the source of our problems and to leftist political charlatans and saviors to save and care for us.

The Sociopolitical Redshift: An Update

The Sociopolitical Redshift is an indicator of the extent to which the emotional plague from the political left, communist ideology under the banner of political correctness, has infiltrated into our society.

Here is a quote from Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, that I used in a blog written in May, 2010.

“Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicles in a bid to head off potential terror attacks…’IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT…TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trails and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!…We will accept your beliefs and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us. This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, Our Way of LIFE. I highly encourage ypu to take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.’ If you are not happy here then LEAVE. We did not force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.”

Nine years later, in 2019, when President Trump expressed the same idea about the behavior of individuals dissatisfied with our country, using much milder words, he was strongly chastised by both political parties. This is an indication of the progressive advance of the morality of political correctness – the emotional plague – into everyday life.

The Functional Relationship Between the True Liberal and the Far-left Pseudo-liberal

Emotions both conscious and unconscious are powerful social forces. Because of their unconscious guilt, white American true liberals are always ready to apologize for themselves and assume responsibility for crimes such as racism, sexism and so on that they really have nothing to do with. On the other hand, far-left radicals including those of color are ready to masochistically play the role of the victim and provocatively use it to justify their sadistic expression of unconscious hatred of white Americans accusing them of racism, “classism”, sexism, neocolonialism, among other moral crimes. Guilt-ridden, leftist indoctrinated, white Liberals are the real victims incapable of recognizing that they are being used and attacked by the emotional plague from the far-left and are helpless to defend themselves against it.

This functional relationship of attractive opposition between the true liberal and the far-left pseudo-liberal illustrates an operation of the emotional plague in today’s highly charged political arena.

Apropos Well-intentioned, Decent, Liberal Holdouts in the Democratic Party

There are honest, decent Liberals belonging to the Democratic Party who still believe that the old principles of democratic liberalism are operative in that party. They are idealists who cannot use their eyes to see the massive destructive changes that have taken place in that party such as, for example, the shift of the political mainstream to the extreme left that has occurred in the last 60 years.

These are people frozen in time who, because of their ocular pathology, still believe that social and political conditions are somehow the same or better than they were back in the 1950s. From an individual viewpoint, their idealism is dangerous because it prevents them from seeing the reality of today’s social degradation. From a social viewpoint, their blindness to what is happening in the world of American politics supports and encourages the far-left ideologues who now are gaining control of the Democratic Party to carry on their socialistic destructiveness.

For these true liberals, their political ship, the Democratic Party, is sinking and they have no life raft to save them. Their only hope of saving their Party is dissociating from the far-left, pseudo liberal radicals that they are associated with, seeing them for the emotional plague characters that they are and reestablishing a relationship of attractive opposition with the Republican Party as before. Short of this happening, the only other outcome is that the Party becomes fragmented into a European Style, multiparty system.

The American Two Party System is about to come to an end

A sign of the strength of past American Society was that it could exist for over 200 years as a two-party political system. During this period both parties were in a relationship of attractive opposition. Both were united in their allegiance to the founding principles of the American nation and were able to work together and deal with the social and political problems that their country faced as best they could.

A sign that the vitality of American Society is collapsing is that the two party system is coming to an end. This is evidenced by the paralysis and chaos that is happening today in politics and the polarization of the forces that constitute the political system itself. Today these forces are in a relationship of antagonistic opposition. Both parties are at odds regarding their allegiance to the principles of the American Government and how the government should operate. This confused state of the public is a symptom of the emotional plague in politics.

The far-left has always failed to solve the problems of armored people through politics. Religions have failed to provide answers through mysticism. Before starting a third party for answers, people will have to realize that neither religion nor politics has the answer to their problems in life. They will need to look inward and have contact with themselves for the source of their problems.

Societies are Biological Systems

A society is a living system that can be viewed from the standpoint of it’s state of health or disease. Since individual humans are armored society as a whole is also armored. With the new sciences of Medical and Social Orgonomy it is possible for the social orgonomist to understand social pathologies in the same way using functional thinking that the medical orgonomist understands and treats individual patients.

Applying this knowledge to American society today shows that it is becoming increasingly dysfunctional and rapidly deteriorating. The anti-authoritarian transformation that started in America around 1960 accompanying the so-called sexual revolution of the ’50s was the start of the decline. This was the time when far-left radicals were able to infiltrate into politics through the Democratic Party. This was also when helpless people first started looking to politics for solutions to their personal and social problems en mass and when leftist politicians assumed leadership in the progressive movement promoting their ideological goals to them. The left’s invasion into politics soon extended into both Parties and eventually destroyed the foundation of the two-party system as we know it. One symptom of the transformation was the polarization of politics into the left and the right – the spectacle of two antagonistic opposing political forces battling each other for political survival.

The original, rational function of politics – the application of political knowledge to the function of governing – was lost and replaced by the pathological substitute of socio-politics. Championed by today’s political saviors on the far-left, this is another sign of the emotional plague’s destructive invasiveness in today’s anti-authoritarian social order.

The Guilt of White American Liberals is a Powerful Social Force

Unrecognized by almost everyone, the unconscious guilt of armored American liberals is being used as a highly destructive social force.

It is being used by American racists to destroy America’s historical past and gain political power in America.

It is being used by far-left radicals to destroy the American nation.

It is being used by emotionally sick, young, leftist American politicians and American youths with little or no work function to politically turn America into a socialist state.

Since they are all manifestations of the emotional plague, these forces can function alone or in combination.

The Relationship Between the Mystical Masses and the Far-Left Radicals: Part II

Because of the crippling effect of their armor, many young people today also have a serious work disturbance. They are chronically helpless and in need of being taken care of. Throughout history, this need was partially satisfied by religion with mystical ideas of being cared for in the afterlife. However, traditional religions are losing their mystical hold on the masses of young people and this is why the Catholic Pope from the political right is currently courting an unprecedented, ideological alliance with forces of the political left. Today, Far-Left radical politicians have seized the opportunity and entered the political arena by promising the mystical masses with their illusion of hope and care. Through their political agendas, they are the ones who are saying that they will take responsibility and provide for all the helpless people in the here and now.

From a functional perspective, the mystical masses and the Far-Left radicals are now forming a powerful ideological relationship of attractive opposition in preparation for the upcoming political battle of the 2020 presidential election.

The Far-Left’s Rules of Political Engagement

Without an understanding of the three layers of the human bio-psychic apparatus it is impossible to make any sense of what is going on in politics today. These layers are: 1) the biological core, 2) the secondary destructive or middle layer, and 3) the superficial layer or facade.

People on the radical Left operate entirely from their secondary destructive layer. This defines them as emotional plague characters. Their single most important political objective is to destroy American Society and replace it with a totalitarian socialistic society controlled from the top similar to the bygone Soviet Union. As with the old time communists, they seem to be interested in honest political dialogue but this is only a pretense. The only real difference between them is that the present-day socialists, like Bernie Sanders and other Far-Left radicals, have perfected their appearance by developing a highly polished facade that gives them a benign, “regular looking” dissemblance.

The danger to America is that mainstream liberals and many of the younger generation clueless public are easily attracted and taken in by the emotional appeal of these emotional plague political saviors.

The Function of Destroying Historical Statues

The recent destruction of public historical statues on a social scale in the American South is functionally identical to the operation of psychic repression in an individual. While the destruction of statues is in the service of eliminating the memory of America’s historical past – a symptom of social armor – forgetfulness is in the service of eliminating the person’s past, a symptom of individual armor. Both have in common the removal of painful or unpleasant past experiences and memories.

Fueled by their personal hatred of authority and rationalized as the freedom of social protest against past American injustices, confused young Americans raised in today’s anti-authoritarian social order are driven to rid themselves of painful experiences from their individual lives by displacing their personal hatreds onto the social realm in many ways including by the destruction of historical statues.

This illustration is given as an example of how applying the knowledge of Social Orgonomy to what is currently happening in America can be of help in shedding light on the operation of the emotional plague and containing it’s destructive consequences in today’s world.

The American College of Orgonomy is providing lectures open to the public on topics dealing with medical and social orgonomy. Interested individuals can contact the College’s website at www.orgonomy.org for more information.

Free-Floating Guilt Leads to Political Activism

 Neurotic guilt originates from the perception of biological energy bound in armored muscles. Christianity’s solution to the problem of human guilt was discussed earlier. How this guilt is manifested outwardly depends on people’s degree of contact with their biological core. This, in turn, is related to the type of society in which he or she lives. In the past authoritarian social order, Americans in general had less ocular armor and more muscular armor than they do today. As a result, people were in better contact with themselves and able to experience personal feelings of guilt as coming from within. With the help of religion, their feelings of guilt were resolved largely through their religion. Contact with their biological core provided Americans with a relationship with God, a sense of contentment and belonging and a love of their country.

     People in today’s irreligious, anti-authoritarian society generally have less muscular armor combined with more ocular armor and less contact with their biological core than In the past. With less muscular armor, and no religion to provide emotional comfort, people’s guilt becomes free-floating. Less in touch with their biological depths and with the inner source of their personal problems and having a chronic sense of being guilt-ridden, people today look for external causes for their personal problems and are likely to blame sources in society. Chronically dissatisfied with their personal lives, they find fault with America and often turn to political action for solutions and for emotional relief.

Plague-ridden politicians and the left leaning media combine to focus the attention of these young people by supplying them with the motivation for political action centered around blaming America. This provides relief of free-floating guilt and, at the same time, brings closer to achieving the sought after leftist radical goal of establishing a socialist society in America.

The Invasiveness of the Populist Movement – a Warning.

Attuned to the needs of “the people”, the populist movement as exemplified by the election of Donald Trump in America and its widespread appearance in European nations is an example of the spread of the emotional plague through  politics of the Western World. It is another step in the continued degradation of politics that started with the transformation of American society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian around 1960. This was the time when the traditional two-party system that consisted in fairly equal numbers of liberals and conservatives in both parties, a form of social armor that functioned to maintain social stability,  began to break down. This process of disintegration continued to turn into the polarization of the opposing forces of the left and the right that became two irreconcilable political  camps each side looking for antithetical political solutions to social problems as represented in the policies of the Democratic and Republican parties today.

The destructiveness with populist thinking is people’s continued belief in the illusion that  the emotionally based  personal problems that exist within people themselves can be solved externally through politics. Unless recognized and stopped these highly dangerous and contagious belief systems, universal symptoms of people’s  distoted, armored ways of thinking, is certain to bring about even more havoc, suffering and disillusionment in the future.

The Emotional Plague on the far-Left and the Masses of Young People. Part I

The escalation of the emotional plague on the political far-Left is another manifestation of the anti-authoritarian transformation of Western Society, an endemic disease that continues to be universally ignored. Most people particularly the younger generation are clueless and in a state of paralysis regarding their ability to recognize and confront the symptoms of this social infestation. Two recent examples are the youngsters quandary regarding the marijuana problem and the confusion generated by the psychiatric establishment about the homosexual problem. These symptoms of human illness are now dead and buried, no longer worthy of scientific interest. What has replaced them to be worthy of public interest is another political symptom of the plague, the urgent need to provide reparations to Blacks for the past injustice of slavery.

Before dealing with these and other symptoms originating from the political far-left it is necessary to understand how the plague operates. First, there must appear on the political arena fresh, young, self-proclaimed “experts” to “inform” people what “really” is happening in the world. Convinced that they are the chosen ones who know what is wrong with America and how Americans should think and behave politically to “fix” it, these savants also have the ability to “smell out” the average person’s emotional weaknesses. An example is the public’s inability to authoritatively and fearlessly stand up and express contrary opinions to ideas that are socially and politically unacceptable according to the morality of political correctness. The masses inability to effectively oppose the leftist ideologues charges that are filled with anti-American hatred combined with their own feelings of guilt for having it “too good” living in America are recognized and exploited as signs of weakness by the far-left.

This pathological relationship between plague characters on the left and the idealistic youths who are already severely weakened by their daily media exposure to the plague’s infectiousness allows the plague to spread mainly unopposed throughout the free world.

 

The Operation of the Holier-than-thou, Far Left’s Attack on America

Traditional religions are losing their hold on the masses of people – another one of the consequences of the transformation of Western Society’s from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian. One function of the ideology of traditional religion was to anchor peoples personal feelings of guilt in it. The result of the breakdown of religious institutions is that people’s feelings of guilt – mostly unconscious – contained in their armor have become free-floating. Having no religion to ground them, young people are driven to find ways to relieve themselves of their guilt feelings socially through virtuous thoughts and causes of every kind. Examples abound in todays society in people’s getting swept up in socialist movements provided by the far left.

These leftist ideologues onto the social scene are quick to inject their hatred contained in their anti-American ideology into any social issue, present or past, that they can use to blame America for being responsible for past wrong-doings such as the institution of slavery and present-day injustices such as not allowing hoards of out of control migrants free entry into America.

The younger generation’s free-floating guilt is an unrecognized powerful social motivating force that is being mobilized to control people. The masses of today’s clueless masses of youths are raw material that are being manipulated politically as weapons through political action programs by their “guiltless”, Holier-than-thou, far-left radical leaders.

The Power Behind the Ideology of the Left Part II:

The intellectualization of emotions is only part of the ideology of people on the left (see blog 5/31). The content of their ideology comes from the typical longing of socialists for a better life, a heaven on earth epitomized in the political slogan “hope and change.” This mystical wish for happiness that has been operating in armored people through the ages, is the basis for every type of ideology both for those on the left and the right. Those on the American right are content to wait for happiness in the afterlife. Those on the left are impatient and demand happiness now. Manifested through political action, this need has polarized American society into two irreconcilable political groups of left and right. Additionally, it functions as a powerful defense in preventing both sides from arriving at real, not substitute, social and political solutions for their personal and social problems.

The Power Behind the Left’s Political Ideology

Political ideology is a powerful social force. In today’s anti-authoritarian social order the ideology of the public mainstream is far to the political left of center. The source of the power behind the far-left’s ideological battle to destroy the authority of President Trump and his campaign comes from their ability to tap into this left-centered mind-set of the public by casting doubt in them about every one of his political ideas and policies.

For their part, the left-centered public mainstream has little or no contact with emotions originating from it’s biological core. Because of this emotional cluelessness, all they have remaining for guidance and orientation in life is through the development of their intellectual powers. However, this deficit allows them to give equal credence to every one of the leftist media’s attacks on Trump in the name of fairness. It also allows them to be easy prey of the far-left ideologues and be taken in by their ideologically based attacks.

The Emotional Plague at the Southern Border

People on the political left are united in their efforts to oppose each and every one of President Trump’s decisions and actions. What matters more to them are the expressions of their varying degrees of hatred toward the President and, at the same time defending their political source of power over people and not what is important for safeguarding the American nation.

Regarding immigration, the left’s effectiveness of their oppositional strategy is to create public confusion about how to deal with the problem of illegal immigration and to paralyze the Nation’s efforts to defend itself by undermining and eliminating it’s borders. A typical tactic of the emotional plague of armored humans on the political extreme left, the source of their destructiveness comes from their ability to enlist the support of the masses of true liberals further to their right.

The true liberal functions as the carrier of this manifestation of the plague and provides the force behind the leftist ideologues plague characters on his left. The source of the true liberal’s political ideology is in his enormous amount of free-floating guilt (conscience anxiety) that continually needs relief by attaching to social causes. His political ideology originates from his not having a religion to absorb his chronic, pervasive feelings of guilt. The image of poor, suffering immigrants demanding entrance at our southern border provided by the media is exactly what is needed for him to feel the urge to ” do something” through political action so that his conscience and feelings of guilt, can be atoned.

The public spectacle of this moral drama is the background that serves to ignore any consideration about what is in the best interests of Americans and their nation.

On Handling the Problem of the Invaders

America must be prepared to deal forcefully with the attempt at invasion of it’s southern border by unruly mobs on the ideological as well as on the military fronts. The invader’s obvious strategy is to incite an aggressive American response to defend itself at it’s border and use that act, with the help of the leftist media, to distort the incident into a hostile act of violence against the immigrants. Their tactic is to turn the confrontation into a mass sadomasochistic interaction between the “sadistic” American aggressors who are unfairly treating the poor, “suffering” immigrant “victims”.
This is a typical leftist revolutionary formula that has been perfected and used dozens of times from the New Left movements from the 60s to the present often through members of the Democratic Party. Called the Alinsky method, it’s function is to undermine the system in power and then see what happens. It is governed by the single principle to take political control from the Haves and give it to the Have-nots. This amounts to a destructive assault on the established order in the name of social progress.

The population that is most likely to be duped by this ruse are well-to-do, American liberals including the leftist media. Because of their free-floating guilt, a form of pleasure anxiety, which is reinforced by their being economically well off and living as they please in a free country, these groups look favorably and sympathetically on the poverty stricken foreign invaders. If there is a violent confrontation at the border, the American defenders of the border will be the ones that are blamed by them and the incident will be twisted into a victory for the Have-not provocateurs. This flaw in the true liberal’s outlook is exploited aggressively by anti-American pseudo-liberal/communists on the extreme left for their own destructive political ends.

On Perspective

Perspective consists in recognizing the relationship of things to each other. It is a perceptual (ocular) function. There are several kinds of perspectives. Some of them are spatial (visual), temporal (historical), conceptual (thought) and emotional.
Ocular armor can involve distortions in any one of them. Typical of all leftists is their deficiency in historical perspective. The political left’s symptom of idealism originates, in part, from this deficit. Their idealism is the result of a disturbance in recognizing the functional significance of past social events to each other, an ocular symptom. It is a manifestation of their cluelessness and a reason that liberals can never see eye-to-eye with conservatives.

Politics is a Symptom not a Disease

Politics is a symptom of armored people’s inability to accurately see the world and to act accordingly. This is an ocular, bio-psychiatric problem and the underlying reason for people’s politically based increasing frustration and hostility toward one another.

In today’s anti-authoritarian society, politics is highly antagonistic and a symptom of armored people’s having become polarized into two, antithetical political groups consisting of liberals in the Democratic Party and conservatives in the Republican Party, and their viewing the same world from entirely different, ideologically driven perspectives.

In the past authoritarian era, prior to 1960, there were fairly equal numbers of liberals and conservatives in both parties and the the political forces within them kept each other in check. However, the infiltration of leftist extremists into the Democratic Party during the intervening years and the shift to the left in the political mainstream brought about the polarization of the two party system and today’s highly volatile political situation.
The danger facing America today is that the tried and true solutions of the past offered by conservative are insufficient to oppose the political agendas of liberal extremists that are designed to destroy the American nation.

A functional understanding of what is happening in our world provided by social orgonomy is urgently needed. For example, before any improvement can happen in social conditions a clear distinction must be made between the true liberal character, a politically benign individual, and the pseudo-liberal/communist character who is not liberal at all but an emotional plague character that has infiltrated and taken over the Democratic Party. This vital knowledge is currently being made available to the public by members of the American College of Orgonomy’s training program in social orgonomy.

Problems With Marijuana

The central question that is never asked regarding marijuana is this: What is the origin of the powerful political force behind the movement to legalize it? Asking this obvious question allows the answer to come to the surface: Marijuana helps the user to be as comfortable as possible in a state of emotional cluelessness.
The destructiveness of marijuana on human life requires a bio-psychiatric understanding of the distinction between emotions and sensations and the drug’s effect on them. Marijuana selectively blocks the perception of emotions but not the perception of sensations. This is how the drug puts the user in a chronic state of emotional cluelessness. As a result, the user is relieved of experiencing anxiety and other painfully disturbing emotions. This selective numbing effect of emotions gives rise to the popular misconception that marijuana is just a recreational drug and is not harmful to health. In fact, it’s effect to eliminate the emotional life of the user is exactly why it is so destructive to human life and in such great demand. Since marijuana kills emotions, it’s use and political advocacy is in the service of the emotional plague.
Popularizing the myth that marijuana is harmless, or replacing marijuana with a more “scientific” term, cannabis, is an evasion. it sidesteps the destructive emotional and social consequences that center around the universal disturbance of human sexuality that make mind-numbing drugs in such great demand. This is the underlying reason that people resort to all sorts of substitutes including marijuana.

On Saturday, October 6, 2018, The American College of Orgonomy (ACO) is sponsoring a forum on marijuana at the Rutgers University Conference Center in New Brunswick, N.J. For those interested in attending call the ACO (732) 821-1144 or visit www.orgonomy.org

The Emotional Plague in Everyday Life

The title of this blog will be the same as that for a regular column in the Journal of Orgonomy starting with the Volume 51, Number 1 issue. The readers are invited to submit accounts of the plague from their own lives for the column. Here is an example of what will be included:

The essential characteristic of the emotional plague is that action and the reason given for it are never congruent. The underlying motive is always covered up and replaced by an apparent motive. An example is President Trump’s zero tolerance policy for illegal border crossings that has provoked a hysterical reaction from the political left. The apparent motive given for the reaction is that it would require separation of parents and children at the border. However, the hysteria behind their reaction is entirely bogus. The policy of separating children and parents is not new. It has been the policy of past administrations as well. Moreover, there has never been hysteria from the left when children are separated from parents as a result of their arrests and convictions for crimes. Therefore, the true motive for the hysteria must be to force open borders on the nation under the guise of compassion for children.

The political right attempts to address this and similar outbreaks of the plague in a rational manner. Without recognizing this reaction from the political left as an expression of a human disease, destructive emotional plague reaction’s such as this one will continue unrecognized and unopposed.

“Never do it the political way!”

These were Wilhelm Reich’s words regarding past attempts to improve social conditions through politics. He continues:

“People will get very enthusiastic about it. They will glow. They will burn for you. But their structures won’t follow. Their character structures can’t follow. Then you are in trouble… This discrepancy between what a human being wants, what he dreams of, what he intellectually understands as true and good and what he actually can do, i.e., what his structure, the character structure, really permits him to do, is quite a problem…It is also the gap where religion comes in with the idea of paradise.”

Today, in our anti-authoritarian society, people are being deprived of their illusory hopes in religion as it is being replaced by the a secularized, intellectualized version of it in the form of socio-politics. They are losing whatever contact that they had with themselves at the time when their emotions were tied in to their personal and religious beliefs. Today, people are more out of touch with themselves and their world than they were in the past authoritarian era.

Now more than ever, a functional understanding of what is happening to our society is vital to prevent further degradation. This knowledge is being made available through a lecture series on Social Orgonomy open to the public given by the American College of Orgonomy.

The Politicization of Immigration

The exacerbation of America’s immigration problem is not only about immigration but, more importantly, about the American left’s undisguised hatred of Donald Trump and his authoritative, pro-American policies.

The left has blatant disrespect for Trump’s presidential authority and the laws of our land. At the same time, the masses of immigrants are encouraged by their leaders (with the help of American legal council) to believe that they have the right to immigrate and reap the enormous benefits such as medical, housing, education, welfare that bonafide American citizens have despite their illegal status.

In the past authoritarian era (prior to around 1960) it was considered a privilege to be accepted as an immigrant by the American immigration system. The right of passage to legal citizenship was treated with mutual respect and dignity by both parties. In today’s far-left oriented anti-authoritarian social order, entrance to America is almost considered a birthright for someone from any part of the world. For the leftists, there is little reason for there to be legal obstacles that prevent someone from entering and living in America without going through the legal process required by immigration law. This attitude masks an expression of contempt and disrespect for the American system of law. It’s blind acceptance by the mainstream media is an indication of how far society has shifted to the political left in recent decades.

The confusion generated by the left regarding the immigration problem is another destructive consequence of the emotional plague’s massive infiltration into American society through the destructive force of socio-politics. The goal of the political left is to destroy the Trump presidency by opposing each and every one of his policies regardless of their merit including those on immigration. In addition, the goal of the emotional plague carrier on the political left is to destroy America by eliminating it’s borders and rendering it defenseless against it’s potential enemies. Without first recognizing the existence and operation of the plague in the immigration problem and addressing it’s pathological symptoms as a true bio-social disease, the immigration problem can only worsen.

Bravo, President Trump

Congratulations President Trump for having the courage to single-handedly face the vicious antipathy that the political left has for you and your administration. Facing the left head-on exposes them for who they really are. Their hatred is based on the outward turning of their self-loathing and personal feelings of guilt onto others less fortunate, those they have been “chosen” to save. You are effectively confronting the left and preventing them from getting away with their delusional thinking and pretended “holier than thou” facade that covers their true feelings.

Why is Trump Viciously Hated by the Far Left?

When Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election in 2016, her supporters on the left were in a state of emotional shock and disbelief. With eight years of the Obama administration behind them, their timetable of what they had planned for America’s future was almost a reality and now that illusion was shattered, at least temporarily. They soon recovered their senses, reorganized and directed their attacks on Donald Trump for what he stands for, a strong authority that wants to protect America from the anti-authoritarian left’s progressively destructive agenda.
Are All People on the political left anti-authoritarian?
No. People to the left of the political center are true liberals. In distinction to the pseudo-liberal/communists who are farther to the left, the true liberal stands for individual authority, has physical aggression at his disposal and is pro-American. However, because of less contact with his biological core the true liberal is blinded to the destructiveness of those who are on the extreme left and becomes their handmaidens. True liberals are Lenin’s “useful idiots”.This distinction between the true liberal and the pseudo-liberal/communist requires an understanding of socio-political characterology necessary if any sense is to be made of social processes and political events.

What is Social Orgonomy?

Social orgonomy is the application of functional thinking to social processes.

What is the difference between medical orgonomy and social orgonomy?
Medical orgonomy deals with the destructive effects of armored society on the individual. Social orgonomy deals with the destructive effects of the individual on society.

What are the functions that constitute social orgonomy?
The functions are, the layering of the bio-psychic apparatus, the emotional plague, people’s socio-political character and the anti-authoritarian transformation of Western Society.

How do people currently think about social processes?
People generally think along the different lines of the political forces left and the right. These forces operate together in a destructive fashion which is partisan politics. Because there is no contact between them, nothing can be resolved.

What are these ways of thinking called?
They consist of the opposing forces and views of mechanistic and mystical armored thought.

Why can’t mechanistic mysticism be applied to an understanding of social processes?
These forms of thought do not correspond to the way social processes function and, as a result, they are bound to result in endless, political battles that are destructive to the Nation. They are the result of politically minded people and politicians displacing social problems onto the political arena. This is socio-politics. They are not concened with the proper function of politics.

What is lacking in the application of mechanistic-mysticism to social processes?
An understanding of motive forces behind all human activity, the emotional function in general and the emotional plague in particular.

The Politicization of Everyone

In today’s increasingly polarized American society, the public is undergoing a massive process of indoctrination by mainstream leftist ideologues with the help of the media to become politicized. This is called identity politics, the artificial fragmentation of people into antagonistic groups organized along often imagined ethnic, racial and sexual categories.

On the surface, people’s actions appear to be about addressing social problems but their effect is, in fact, the opposite. They function as an evasion to avoid recognition of the underlying conflictual forces within them. People’s emotionally based problems – the breakdown of the family and society, racism, abortion, school shootings, drugs, poverty etc. – are displaced onto and acted out in the political arena on all social levels.

At the same time, functions that are the real responsibility of politicians including maintaining America’s military strength, border control and immigration are systematically ignored. Manifestation of the emotional plague, these politically motivated actions and inactions by leftist extremists are tearing America apart.

Gun Control is a Symptom of the Emotional Plague

When an emotional plague event threatens the core functions of human life such as a school shooting, there is at first a panic reaction which is then followed by the need for immediate understanding and elimination of the threat. People react automatically to avoid looking at the underlying problem and seek symptomatic solutions such as “gun control.”
Understanding the emotional forces operating within people that turn some into mass murderers are kept a deep secret. People facing their emotional depths in social encounters that have to do with core functions of life are avoided “like the plague” because the truth contained in them is too intense and painful to bear. This truth is that the plague is not only in the killer but, in latent form, exists in all armored humans. It is why people shun knowing what is happening when confronted with the plague and resort to substitute forms of contact and actions that can become an emotional plague reaction in themselves. An example is the politicization of school massacres by demands for banishing the public sale of firearms.

Character Trumps Everything

If there is one thing to understand from social orgonomy it is that a person’s individual and socio-political character types determine all of his social thinking and behavior.
President Trump is most likely a high energy phallic narcissistic character with an oral unsatisfied block. Politically, he is a populist with a conservative character structure.
Knowledge of Trump’s individual and socio-political character types is sufficient to understand his presidential functioning from a clinical, bio-psychiatric perspective. It counteracts getting caught up in personally motivated pros and cons about him and in politically biased moral judgements.
To complicate matters, because of his high energy level, his oral unsatisfied block, his populist need to be loved by everyone and his conservative character structure, he is a contentious person who cannot constrain himself from getting involved in fights including with people he needs to be able to work productively with.
Seeming to thrive on controversy and easily provoked, he gives his opponents every opportunity to enter into inconsequential political distractions on a daily basis. This is the wasteland of partisan politics, a symptom of America’s polarized and increasingly clueless society.

Should Marijuana be Legalized?

The destructiveness of marijuana on human life requires a bio-psychiatric understanding of the distinction between emotions and sensations and the drug’s effect on them. Marijuana selectively blocks the perception of emotions but not the perception of sensations. This is how the drug puts the user in a chronic state of emotional cluelessness. As a result, the user is relieved of experiencing anxiety and other painfully disturbing emotions. This selective numbing effect of emotions gives rise to the popular misconception that marijuana a just a recreational drug and is not harmful to health. In fact, it’s effect is to eliminate the emotional life of the user and is exactly why it is so destructive to human life.
Popularizing the myth that marijuana is harmless sidesteps the underlying emotional and social consequences that centers around the universal disturbance of human sexuality,the conflict resulting from the adolescent’s sexual push meeting their armor in today’s anti-authoritarian social order. The conflict results in the widespread sexual dissatisfaction and social disruption that we are increasingly seeing in people today. It is the underlying reason that people resort to drugs including marijuana.
This combined with the widespread public misinformation in the world about the sexual function itself, it is not possible for any young person today to have any genuine guidance about the sexual problems in his personal life. This widespread ignorance on the part of the general public exacerbates people’s sexually based misery and contributes to their need to find ways on their own to alleviate their suffering. By deadening emotions, marijuana puts an end to the users sexual misery and provides him with a substitute existence that is free of emotional pain. But the drug does this at the cost of cutting the person off from having emotional contact with his biological core. This problem is the underlying, unstated reason that drives a large segment of the public and legislators to promote the legalization on marijuana. It is a manifestation of the emotional plague.
Evasion and ignorance of the sexual origin of the marijuana and other drug related problems keeps people from effectively addressing them. It turns marijuana into a political sideshow – another symptom of the emotional plague.
The exacerbation of the marijuana problem is another manifestation of our anti-authoritarian social order. The drug puts the user in a state of emotional cluelessness in his relationships with important people in his life including those in authority. It puts the user in an anxiety-free state of laid- back, complacency and renders him vulnerable when dangerous situations arise. Cut off from his emotions, and clueless about the many destructive events that are happening around him, he is left at the mercy of his intellect to survive.
To add to the confusion, the highly destructive medical and psychiatric side-effects of the drug are consistently ignored by the public and the media.
The forces of the emotional plague are actively agitating to have this highly destructive substance legalized so that it can be readily available to the public. A sure-fire indication that the emotional plague is operative in this battle on legalization of marijuana is that “you’re damned if you oppose it and you’re damned if you don’t.” No matter what decision is made about the marijuana problem, the person is left feeling stymied. If the drug is not legalized, a huge black market is created with all the potential social and criminal consequences. If it is legalized, a message is sent out that it is harmless and should be made available in the free market. In the former course, society is functioning in an authoritarian manner resulting in the predictable rebelliousness of leftist-indoctrinated young people. In the latter course, society is functioning in an anti-authoritarian manner and neglecting the rational guidance and education that people sorely need about the harmfulness of this substance.

What is Happening With President Trump? Round Two.

To explain Trump’s post-election behavior as president requires an understanding of his individual character structure. Displaying the features of a phallic narcissistic character with an oral unsatisfied block, he functioned in the business world as a highly successful businessman. As a business leader he was used to being top dog and playing by his own rules. He was able to act aggressively and get things done in the world of business.
However, in his new, unfamiliar world of partisan politics, he is not in charge of his environment in the way he was at home in business. He has difficulty playing by the new rules of politics and getting his political agenda off the ground. In addition, because he is touchy, he becomes frustrated and plays into the hands of his opponents by reacting in a defensive manner when his policies are threatened.
This is a typical feature of people with his character type. His high energy, phallic narcissistic structure leads him to react defensively with poorly directed aggressive attacks blaming others for things gone wrong. Additionally, his oral unsatisfied block leads to loose talking and his defensive whining and complaining like a big baby about how poorly he is being treated by his critics. These self-destructive displays of bad behavior do no credit to him, the presidency or to the nation.

The Function of the U.S. Constitution

The following excerpt is from my forthcoming book, “Clueless”

“The U.S. Constitution was written in 1787 by some of the finest minds that the world had to offer. It’s function was to protect the life of the American people against the destructive forces contained within them. Thus, even without knowledge of human armor,the writers were aware of the existence and the destructive consequences of the emotional plague. It was expected that future generations would retain and develop it’s fundamental principles when new understanding of human life became available.

However, the required knowledge of biological functions was not forthcoming until almost 200 years later with the sciences of biological and social orgonomy. Meanwhile, the gap in the Constitution’s understanding of human life functioned as a block. It’s interpretation and the meaning of it’s wisdom were placed in the hands of the general public. Based on differences in their character structure, their perspectives differed. Today, people still continue to be divided about the interpretation of the document when problems of governance arise that need to be settled. On one hand are the Originalists who interpret the Constitution verbatim as stable from the time of it’s enactment. On the other, are those who view it as a flexible document that can be interpreted differently depending on the whims of the individual and on social circumstances.

Now, for the first time in it’s history, the Constitution and the amendments to it in the Bill of Rights can be understood functionally from the perspective of social orgonomy (see chapter 3) Applying this knowledge to the Constitution helps to provide the document with a unified, natural scientific basis for governance.”

Welcome to the World of Islam

As long as the authoritarian social order in the Western World was intact (prior to around 1960), the Muslim world in the Mideast remained at peace with itself and lived harmoniously with the Non-Muslim world.

The Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 brought this to an end as the godless ideology of communism encountered the devoutly religious, strictly authoritarian Muslim world. American leaders entered into a quasi military alliance with Muslim Afghan leaders, like Osama bin Laden, who was believed at the time to be friendly toward America, for the purpose of ridding the country of the Soviets. America’s invasion of Iraq with the objective of eliminating the tyrant, Saddam Hussein, was another military operation that exacerbated social unrest of Mideast countries.

However, more fundamental than these military incursions was the cultural invasion by Western anti-authoritarian life and the impact that it had on people’s lives in the Mideast. Today’s “anything goes” Western society functions as a chronic, emotional irritant to the sexually repressed people of the Muslim population. To make matters worse, people in the West are clueless about the effect that their unconstrained, “free” ways of living have on repressed cultures worldwide. Therefore, without an understanding of the reasons for the transformation of Western society it is impossible to know what is currently happening in the Mideast and why the cultural clash between the two worlds had to happen.

In the West, the shift of the socio-political spectrum to the left resulted in the breakdown of social order and it’s traditional ways of living, particularly in the loosening of its sexual mores. This leftward shift gradually spread and triggered social unrest globally.

The majority of people in the Muslim World belong characterologically in varying degrees to the far right of center. Therefore, the permissive, anti-authoritarian attitudes of Western people on the political left was more intolerable, provocative and shocking to the Muslim people than it was even to other conservative Westerners.

The anti-authoritarian transformation also had a powerful destabilizing effect on the politics of Islamic nations. In some countries (Egypt and Libya), thanks to the Arab Spring, rigid authoritarian governments were toppled domino-like only to be replaced by new regimes of the same kind or worse, while in others (Syria and Iran) the states that had been created during the authoritarian, Colonial period were reorganized largely according to totalitarian lines.
The widespread undoing of Muslim societies in the Mideast brought a flood of Arab immigrants into Europe and America many of whom came from broken homes. The social turmoil and anxiety in Western countries resulting from this forced migration was not simply “the consequence of a civilization’s failure to overcome or accommodate the forces of modernity.”

The key to knowing what happened including the problem of Islamic terrorism is to first have an understanding of the participant’s specific socio-political character structures.
Leftist provocateurs in European countries inflamed a highly volatile situation by insulting Muslim immigrants and the Islamic way of life. In reaction to the threat from the left, Muslims responded in ways that are characteristic for people who are on the political right – viscerally. The intensity of this reaction depended on the degree to which Muslims were located to the right of the socio-political spectrum. The Conservative Muslims to the immediate right of center adjusted and lived quietly in segregated communities according to their ethnic ways. Further to the right, the reactionary Muslims were more anxious and disturbed by what they saw happening around them. Having found their place in the stricter ways of Islam, they struggled to rigidly maintain their traditional ways. Sensing the non-Muslim people as a threat to their way of life, they isolated themselves in an effort to fortify their defenses. Many responded with covert hatred toward Westerners. Their reactionary structure led them to passively or actively gravitate toward supporting Islamic extremists.

For the Islamic fascist on the extreme right, secular law of the Islamic State is inseparable from the religious Islamic law. The Islamic fascist’s feelings of hatred are intensified by the perception of Western social weakness and degeneration. According to their ideology, the Muslim World is in a state of perpetual war with infidels world-wide. As a first step in their grand scheme, the jihadists of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) which has been renamed “the Islamic State” want to consolidate their control of the Sunni part of Iraq. They are demanding that jihadist groups world-wide adopt (ISIS)’s hard line and join together in a global war against the infidels.

The ultimate goal of the Islamic Fascist is to destroy all democratic institutions and to unify the Muslim people under one caliphate headed by a political and religious leader who is the successor to Mohammed himself. If this caliphate were ever to become a reality, the lives of Muslim people would be under the total control of this Fascist leader.

On a global scale, the Islamic Fascist on the political extreme right in the Muslim world and the pseudo-liberal/communist on the extreme left in the Western world have as their common goal the destruction of human life. Both are emotional plague characters at the limits of the socio-political spectrum. Although they share the same goal they operate differently. Western leaders on the left sow their hatred based seeds of destruction covertly and act subversively. They debilitate America’s military power and passively undermine it’s stature as the leader of the free world. Their goal is to weaken America internally and, at the same time, to support totalitarian regimes hostile to America politically through diplomatic activity. Islamic Fascist leaders on the right are aggressive and impatient. Their impulsive actions are often detrimental to achieving their goal.

The following table summarizes the far-reaching cultural differences and the basis for the ideological clash between the Western and the Islamic worlds:
Western World Islamic World
Rigidly Anti-authoritarian Rigidly Authoritarian
Emancipation of Women Subjugation of Women
Mainstream to the far Left of Center Mainstream to the far right of Center
Sexual Unsatisfaction Sexual Repression
Welcomes Unrestraint Resists Change
Individual Glorified Over the State Islam Glorified over the Individual
Intellectual Armor Predominates Muscular Armor Predominates
Agrarian/industrial Economy Tribal/Agrarian Economy
Emotional Plague from the Left Emotional Plague from the Right

The Destructiveness of Politicizing.

As more and more people are leaving churches, politics today is replacing religion as young people’s ever increasing need for mystical solutions to their personal problems. However, politicizing is far more socially destructive than religion. In effect, it misdirects people’s emotional problems onto social and political group issues such as racism, feminism etc. Providing them with the illusion that they are accomplishing something positive, it actually polarizes people and exacerbates social and political unrest.

On a personal level, politicizing originates from people’s ocular armor giving rise to distorted, idealistic thinking about the way the world should be according to their view. It renders people more clueless than ever about what is actually happening to them in their world.

On a social level, it is a highly destructive expression of the emotional plague in today’s anti-authoritarian society.

Can ISIS Be Defeated?

Before Islamic Fascism in the form of ISIS can be eradicated one must first know how it originates. Armed with the knowledge of socio-political characterology, it is possible to understand how Islamic Fascist states can erupt seemingly out of nowhere and organize from their endemic form of the emotional plague in Muslim families to become a social epidemic.

The following social conditions are necessary:
1) The family life from which Islamic Fascism organizes must be strictly authoritarian and strongly sex-negative.
2) The government that is in power must be weak and vulnerable. Living conditions must be desperate with broken authoritarian families, human suffering, uncertain work opportunities and high levels of anxiety in the population.
3) There must be a strong longing for a better life in a large segment of the younger population that, because of the presence of armor, cannot be practically achieved. These social conditions are the breeding ground for high energy, sexually frustrated, wayward youth to turn their dissatisfaction outward and look for some higher social cause to fight. They are raw material ready to be indoctrinated by jihadist ideological fanatics many of whom have been educated in anti-authoritarian western society and are familiar with and react hatefully to what they see as it’s sexual depravity.
4) The unrestrained freedom of people living in the free world is emotionally intolerable and felt as a provocation to many young Muslims who are brought up under sexually repressive social conditions.
5) The charismatic Islamic Fascist leader is ready to provide the excitation and focus that these young men are anxiously looking for. The ideologue redirects the young people’s pent-up feelings of longing for a better life into murderous hatred of the chosen victim.

Without taking these factors into consideration, dealing with the problem of ISIS can only be a matter of symptom removal of eradicating individual Muslim terrorists not of addressing the underlying disease, the emotional plague of sexually frustrated Muslim youths.

President Trump Vs the Emotional Plague: Round One

Everyone has character armor through which the individual relates to the world. It is important to know a person’s character structure particularly if he happens to be a political leader. Identification of the politician’s individual and socio-political character tells us how well he is fit to function at his job.

What we know about President Trump’s character as a father, successful businessman, presidential candidate and the first days of his presidency, tells us that he is a high energy, phallic narcissistic character with an oral unsatisfied block. From the perspective of socio-politics, he is a conservative belonging on the political right. As such, he is authoritarian and, unlike his predecessor, openly in charge of his aggression. A product of the old authoritarian social order, Trump has a sense of the absolute distinction between right and wrong. Additionally, we know that he loves his country indicating that he has a degree of contact with his biological core and that, therefore, his “heart is in the right place” regarding his job qualifications as president.

These basic traits are sufficient to explain how he will function as president. Largely because of his high energy level and his experiences in business, he attempts to overcome the armored trappings of partisan politics by forcefully overriding them. Unfortunately, because of his impatience and his oral unsatisfied block – he brags, is over talkative and exaggerates – he gives people the false impression that he is unstable and opens himself to ridicule.

However, what really drives his leftist opponents crazy is that he is overtly aggressive to the point of being contentious and is shamelessly authoritarian. For example, he deals with the terrorist problem by declaring a ban on all Muslims from entering the United States; he deals with the immigration problem by announcing that he will build a wall between America and Mexico; he is outspokenly pro-American, etc.

A central feature of leftist ideology is their hatred of open aggression and their fear of genuine authority. In leftists, these natural human functions are repressed by a new layer of social armor, the relative morality of political correctness. The undischarged hatred contained in the leftist’s armor is redirected at anyone who claims to be a real authority. Unknown to Trump, this is the emotional plague that is out to destroy him and the authority of the executive office that he stands for. Even without knowledge of the plague, however, Trump seems to have a sense of the plague. This is recognizable in his forceful opposition to leftist attacks from the media.

The Function of Partisan Politics (Politics as Usual)

The common use of the terms, politics and political activity is fraught with confusion because they contain elements from the three layers of the human bio-psychic apparatus, the biological core, the destructive middle layer and the superficial layer. Without making this distinction, politics and political activity becomes a public side-show and a confused spectacle of rational and irrational ideas and behaviors often resulting in the
activation of the emotional plague from the middle layer

Partisan politics is based on the idea that the adversarial forces of the left and the right are necessary to arrive at political decisions. The problem with partisan politics is that it often contains impulses from the politician’s middle layer. When personal feelings of revenge of a neurotic phallic narcissist politician are played out in the political arena as partisan politics it is a clear sign that the emotional plague is in operation. In this case, the politician’s socially destructive personal and financial interests are covered over by his alleged political convictions.

Partisan politics worked fairly well in the past authoritarian social order because social issues had not yet developed a layer of social armor which we recognize today as socio-politics and also because there were approximately equal numbers of socio-political character types (liberals and conservatives) in the opposing Democratic and Republican Party’s. The balance of power between the left and the right was supported by the authoritarian social order. Politicians operated according to their predetermined individual character structure within their party. Nevertheless, despite their ideological differences members of both parties were of one mind in their respect and love for America indicating that their biological core was more or less present in their political decision making process.

This is no longer the case in today’s anti-authoritarian society. With the political shift to the left firmly established, political ideas and activity originating from the biological core are becoming difficult to recognize. They have been replaced by political extremism and people using politics – socio-politics – to find solutions for personal problems that originate from their own destructive, middle and superficial layers. Today, this trend is becoming the rule for people on the political right just as it was true in the past for people on the political left. Politics and political activity is replacing religion as the modern “solution” for each and every individual and social problem.

With the polarization and decline of Western society accelerating, the absurdity of conducting “politics as usual” is slowly dawning on the public as the confusion being generated by the emotional plague has infiltrated every aspect of political life.

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.

Obama and Sanders: Same Old, Same Old

The difference between a communist and a socialist is that communists want a violent overthrow of governments while socialists want a gradual overthrow. In our antiauthoritarian society governments are already in a state of advanced disintegration and so the term, communist is no longer applicable. Today, a socialist is the correct term to be used to describe these leftist radicals.

Barack Obama entered the political arena in the first decade of the 21th century when, with the help of the media, he successfully passed himself off as a liberal. This was a time when the threat of communism was being erased from the minds of the American public and rapidly becoming a word from the past. From a sociopolitical diagnostic standpoint, he was correctly identified at that time as a pseudo-liberal/communist. Today, with the antiauthoritarian transformation of society in full swing and the continuing breakdown of nations worldwide, socialist would be the apt term to describe people like him and others such as Hillary Clinton.

The gradual disintegration of the authoritarian social order and the continuing shift to the far left in the political mainstream are the reasons that a socialist named Bernie Sanders can come out of the closet and be championed by a far-left minded public as a legitimate political candidate.

But what is changing is not the character structure of the old time, freedom peddling politicians – the product – but the increasing demand – the market – of the helpless masses, young and old, who believe that they will be taken care of by this new/old order.

Will they ever “get it” ?

Will people ever “get it” that politics as it is currently practiced is an illusion, that it cannot truly provide satisfactory solutions to the enormous social problems that confront them?

This way of doing politics operates opposite to it’s original function: 1. Under their First Amendment Right it gives the masses a chance to express their personal, opposing political ideas and attitudes about social issues of which they have no clear understanding. 2. It functions as a powerful distraction and it helps to perpetuate their state of cluelessness about what is actually happening in the moment. 3. It feeds people in the world of politics as usual, including politicians, the media, pundits, advertising industry etc., who operate from their secondary (middle) and superficial layers to stay economically afloat. 4. It serves as a vehicle to actualize the emotional plague, the left’s socialist agenda for America.5. It keeps leaders of the world from uniting and destroying their common enemy, The Islamic State.

The 2016 Presidential Campaign

No matter how deafening the background noise is about the 2016 presidential campaign, the undercurrent that must be heard loud and clear through all the distractive clamor are the emotionally charged issues of morality. There is a deeper and more powerful political motive force behind all the political clap trap that is currently being presented on the social surface by the politicians, the pundits and the media.
Whether they know it or not, the presumptive candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, are already lined up according to whether they believe in the old absolute morality of the past authoritarian world or in the new politically correct, relative morality of the current anti-authoritarian era.
These two moralities are entirely different ways of viewing and dealing with the world. They generate the ideological divide that unconsciously pits the political left and right against each other. Casting America into two irreconcilable, opposing groups, this social force from the human depths is the ultimate governor of people’s ideas and behavior. It must be consciously recognized, understood and resolved before social conditions can improve.

Understanding the Trump Phenomenon

In order to know the reason for Donald Trump’s enormous popularity it is first necessary to understand that there has been an incessant shift leftward in American politics especially during the Obama Administration. Originating from the political right, the Trump Phenomenon is simply a reaction to this shift to the left. The core of truth in the Trump Phenomenon is that people are fed up with having the left’s morality of political correctness shoved down their throats and Trump is the one that has led the battle against it. No other politician has had the courage to face this scourge head on.

However, the problem with Trump is that, like every other politician, he has nothing else to offer except perhaps a desire to return to the “good old days”. But this is an illusion. The genie is out of the bottle in terms of the enormous levels of human destructiveness contained in people’s destructive secondary layer. This reality is why humanity’s problems are outside of the political realm and no politician has any clue about what they are or how to go about dealing with them. Not looking to politicians like Trump, Obama and others for answers would be a step in the right direction. Hopefully, it could lead to some people’s looking inward at themselves and not to politics.

The Emotional Plague in Politics

In order to make sense social events, functional knowledge of the three fundamental layers of the human bio-psychic apparatus is essential. These are 1) the biological core, 2) the destructive middle layer and 3) the superficial layer.

All constructive social and political activity originates from the biological core, traveling outward to the periphery and being expressed without distortion from the social surface. In the presence of armor, impulses from the core are blocked by the middle layer and become irrational, harsh and socially destructive.

A politician’s functioning from his core and secondary layers defines his socio-political character diagnosis. However, in their daily interactions all successful politicians function from their superficial layer or facade and this is why political activity is almost always identical with the surface of social life. Nothing is ever revealed about what is going on in the social depths (“behind the scenes”) until much later. Because a politician’s survival depends on his appearing to be what he is on the surface, it is difficult for most people to distinguish one politician from another.
A politician’s boldfaced lies are likely to be believed as true by the public if they are expressed in a convincingly charming and “reasonable” manner. People invest an enormous amount of emotional energy to maintain their political ideas originating from their own destructive middle layer. This is done mainly through holding to the relative morality (political correctness) of the left and that of the absolute morality of the right.

People are increasingly in jeopardy of losing contact with their own depths. They are incapable of having a sense of the destructive middle layer and the biological core in their politicians. To make matters worse, in today’s antiauthoritarian society, the biological core is rarely, if ever, represented in social and political life while impulses from the destructive middle layer and surface are expressed everywhere.

The emotional plague in politics will run amuck as it is currently doing in this election year until people begin to have an understanding of the socio-political character structures of their leaders and can make a distinction between political activity originating from the three layers of people’s bio-psychic apparatus.

The Demise of the Two Party System in America

The following is an excerpt from my forthcoming book, “Clueless.”

In the March 5-6, 2016 issue of The Wall Street Journal, “The Republican Party is Shattering,” Peggy Noonan writes about the destruction of the Party. But if she would take a step back and look at the whole picture, she would see that not only the Republican Party but the Democratic Party and the entire Two Party system in America has broken down.

The function of the two party political system was the foundation of American politics in the past authoritarian era. At that time, there were generally an equal number of liberals and conservatives in the Democratic and Republican Parties and the system functioned to maintain a balance between the opposing ideological forces of the political left and the right. The opposing forces operated on the principle of attractive opposition (see chapter 5.) Today, this system has become a thing of the past and people are generally unaware of what is happening or why.

The reason is that, because in today’s anti-authoritarian society, American politics has shifted far to the left of center, the two party system no longer functions as a balance of opposing ideas to maintain social and political stability. American politics has become destabilized under constant pressure from leftist progressives. It no longer has a rational function.

Why are Republicans Confused about Trump?

In order to clarify the confusion about the legitimacy of Trump’s candidacy, knowledge of a person’s individual and socio-political character structure is essential.Two questions need to be answered positively:

1) Regarding the quality of his judgement, is Trump a phallic narcissistic character with an oral unsatisfied block, a manic depressive (“bi-polar”) character or an out-and-out sociopathic character? (See my blog, Apropos of Donald Trump, February 18, 2016.)

2) Regarding his political attitudes, is Trump somewhere on the conservative right of the political spectrum? The answer is definitely yes.

Satisfactorily answering these questions is essential to deal with the political destructiveness of the emotional plague that is ready to erupt and create havoc over people’s confusion regarding Trump’s candidacy. In any case, considering that the alternative to Trump is either a criminal or a socialist, the choice is not clear.

The Natural Function of a Political Leader

A political leader such as The President of the United States is a person whose natural executive function is increasingly becoming unclear. This is because the rational, core function of politics which is the science of governing people, is being confused with irrational expectations and needs of a clueless, emotionally sick public.

Examples of rational, core executive functions include safeguarding people’s independence, freedom and responsibility. Examples of irrational, destructive executive functions include catering to the public’s pathological helplessness and dependency needs which,in effect, is a self-serving, “political” tactic. The political left has perfected the art of welfare politics. Having nothing better to offer, the right is quickly learning to playing catch up. The focus of looking for political solutions is the reason that politicians are losing people’s respect.

But politics can never be the answer. Knowledge of people’s underlying socio-political character structure is essential because it helps to distinguish between the primary, rational functions that people can expect from their political leaders versus their own irrational, secondary, destructive drives and need to be taken care of which they project onto them. This crucial distinction is obscured by the endless ideological battles between the political left and the right. This is a manifestation of social armor.

Without making this distinction, politics degenerates into “socio-politics,” a spectacle that we are witnessing in today’s election year. The cluelessness of the politician regarding his natural function as political leader is a symptom of the same cluelessness of the public that elects him.

In selecting a president, the key question becomes: Is there a candidate that protects the functions of independence, freedom, and responsibility of the American people?

The Young and the Clueless

In “The Young and the Economically Clueless,” (Wall Street Journal February 20-21, 2016) regarding the overwhelming political support of young people for Bernie Sanders, Daniel Arbess asks: “Why are young people voting against their own interests?”

The writer cannot answer the contradiction posed by his question because it is outside the economic realm. He is unfamiliar with two important sociological facts that are discussed in my last book, “Neither Left Nor Right”:
1. The primary determinant of an individual’s social and political thinking and behavior is his socio-political character structure.
2. The anti-authoritarian transformation of Western civilization that occurred around 1960.

This transformation, the result of the so-called ‘sexual revolution,’ was accompanied by the almost complete destruction of the authoritarian family and, with this, a dramatic shift to the left in the political thinking of mainstream Americans. This culminated, in 2008, with the presidential election of a full-fledged, pseudo/liberal communist, Barack Obama.

The clueless young were not in a position to have learned anything about the destructiveness of Obama’s or Bernie Sander’s socialism because, as the writer notes, the eldest of these young people were in elementary school when the Soviet Union collapsed. Moreover, they are generally clueless about the significance of historical events.

More importantly, these children are the product of the baby boomer generation that were growing up during the 60’s. Many of these were the product of broken homes and therefore had little or no parental, authoritative guidance in their development. What many of these offspring experienced was just the opposite, brattiness and rebelliousness in their parents.

Bernie Sanders, a self-claimed socialist, is the ideal role model as a leader for these helpless, clueless young people. Incapable of caring for themselves, Sanders becomes the all giving,”free lunch” father that, in their clueless eyes, will take care of them. The economic stresses that these young people face in today’s times merely intensifies their anxieties about the future, justifies their anger at the world and increases Sander’s attractiveness to them.

Apropos of Donald Trump

Individual and socio-political character are the primary determinants of an individual’s, including politician’s, thinking and behavior. For example, is presidential candidate, Donald Trump simply a shrewd, controlling bully in full charge of himself regarding his bid for the presidency or is he just a loose cannon and a blowhard? This distinction depends on whether he is simply a phallic narcissistic character with an oral unsatisfied block, a manic depressive (“bi-polar”) character or a sociopathic character.

In the first case his judgment would be intact and would not detrimentally affect his job as president. In the second and third cases he would be a disaster. We need to know more about his decision making process and his past history in order to determine his capacity for good judgement.

The Sexual Misery of the Arab World

An article with the same title appeared in the Sunday, February 12 edition of The New York Times. The author, Kamel Daoud, writes about the extreme authoritarianism in the Arab World, it’s degradation of women and the destructive emotional,including sexual, consequences on the people. He alludes to the destabilizing effects of the Arab media. Influenced by the West’s media they peddle the promise of unattainable bodies of Lebanese singers and dancers and impossible sex to Arab youths. The Internet and religious TV shows have taken monstrous forms often devolving into the undisguised expression of the secondary, destructive layer of armored humans, a kind of porno-Islamism.

The writer, intuitively understands that the driving force behind suicide bombers originates from their frustrated sexual longing. Suicide is equated with the fantasied orgastic release.

The social breakdown that is currently happening in Middle East countries first started in the West around 1960, when Western society transformed from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian. This was heralded as the “sexual revolution.” When in 2011 it spread to the Middle East as the Arab Spring, it was hoped to bring freedom and happiness to the Arab world. In fact, it did exactly the opposite. It resulted in the hell on earth that we see today. This is a vivid example that armored people are incapable of living with the amount of freedom that they mystically long to be given to them by their leaders. To the degree that they are individually armored they need their armored social conditions to survive. The sexual chaos that is occurring in the Arab World is qualitatively the same but quantitatively worse than that which is happening in the West.

Before any real progress can happen in the Middle East and elsewhere, a distinction must be made between people’s feelings of genuine love that move outward unimpeded by armor from their biological core (“healthy sex”) and people’s incapacity to experience these feelings because of their armored condition (“sick sex”). Without making this distinction and dealing with its consequences, all “freedom movements” where ever they originate from will fail.

Taking The Psyche Out Of Psychiatry

The following is an excerpt from my forthcoming book, “Clueless”:

“In the past, psychiatrists were physicians who dealt with the patient’s psychic as well as somatic functions. Today, psychiatrists solely deal with the patient symptomatically by prescribing medication. For them, the patient’s psyche is not in their medical province.

According to current psychiatric thinking, the source of the patient’s mental illness, as defined by the DSM system, is the result of localized pathology in the brain. This is mechanistic thinking and a throwback to the 19th century when it was commonly believed that each part of the brain was a center for designated psychic faculties such as reasoning, empathy etc. The psyche was equated with the human brain.

This return to an antiquated view of the psyche came about in three stages. First, Freud’s psychologically based ideas on sexuality (libido theory) had to be repudiated by mainstream psychiatry. Then, the source of psychiatric illness could be replaced by the idea of brain localization. Finally, it could follow mystically that drugs could somehow be “tailor made” to target the brain for every psychiatric disorder.”

Forced Human Migration Is A Weapon Of Mass Destruction

WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) are generally defined in strict, material forms such as nuclear, chemical, bacterial etc., not in terms of using human life itself as a weapon. But, the forced migration of hundreds of thousands of humans from their homes, displacing them into foreign countries while embedding them with Islamic terrorists and disrupting the lives of both these people and those of the nations they end up living in must also be recognized as a weapon of mass destruction.

Using terror to disrupt and destroy human life is an undeniable manifestation of the emotional plague. It is only a matter of time before the public at large becomes aware of it’s existence.
The upside is that we can thank the terrorists for bringing people in contact with it.

The Mystery of the Missing Radicals on the Left

When radicalization is ever discussed in the news it is always understood in terms of extremists on the right. But are there radicals on the left and if there are any, where are they? The answer is that they do exist but now they are in full view of everyone and are often placed in positions of great power such as candidates in the Democratic Party running for the office of president of the United States and the current President himself. Instead of being referred to for what they are, these radical leftists are now called “progressives” or “socialists.”

Radicals on the left are not identified for what they are because of the shift of the political mainstream to the extreme left of center. These radicals politically blend in imperceptibly with today’s social mainstream. The ever shifting leftward of society is supported and maintained by a new form of social armor that was instituted by leftists, the morality of political correctness.

How People Become Radicalized

To be radicalized the individual must shift from the social mainstream to the political extremes either to the left or the right. To understand how people become radicalized, knowledge of their character structure and of their emotional functions are essential.

In general, people who become radicalized to the political right are raised in strict authoritarian families which results in the repression of child’s sexual feelings during childhood and adolescence. The person’s loyalty and respect for the authoritarian father is absolute. In varying degrees, as a result of sexual repression, the child loses contact with his sexual feelings which are then misperceived in an otherworldly, mystical fashion. These are the young people who become Islamic fascists attracted to jihadism and the Islamic State.

When the authoritarian Muslim families and their society are torn apart as in times of war in the Middle East, many children are often left fatherless and adrift. They are the ones likely to fall prey to Imams and jihadist ideologues who begin their indoctrination process by befriending and comforting them. By taking on the role of substitute fathers, these emotional plague characters provide young people with the guidance and love that they long for. Once they have gained the young people’s trust, they are in a position to inculcate mystical ideas of happiness in the afterlife by doing Allah’s wishes and joining a holy war against the hated non-believers.

Another source of potential jihadists are the endless supply of sexually dissatisfied wayward people from anti-authoritarian Western families who seek revenge on the world for their personal misfortunes by joining the Islamic State.

In the Fort Hood Army base and the San Bernardino massacres, some of the Muslims were raised in the free world and in their youth despite their religious upbringing seemed to be impervious to jihadist ideology. In later life, their latent, mystical feelings surfaced and took hold of them turning them into mass killers. Most likely, they were paranoid schizophrenic characters who had unrecognized homicidal tendencies.

It does not matter if the terrorists are imported or home grown.
What matters is that young people’s underlying, pent-up sexual energy is a powerful force that leads them to seek jihadism as a solution to their personal emotional problems. This central fact must first be acknowledged and addressed before worldwide jihadism can be contained and eradicated.

What is the Origin of Political Correctness?

The morality of political correctness appeared spontaneously following the transformation of society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian beginning around 1960. This was the time when the breakthrough of human destructiveness on all levels of social life first intensified. With the weakening of the authoritarian family and of individual authority on a local level, absolute morality of right and wrong was replaced by the relative morality of political correctness and the collective authority of “Big Brother.” The authority of parents and of individuals was taken over by the authority of peer groups and of big government.

The appearance of the morality of political correctness “out of nowhere” is evidence that people need social armor in one form or another (absolute or relative morality) to contain the destructive forces within them for their personal and social survival.
However, there are qualitative and quantitative differences between the two moralities. Political correctness is more pernicious than the absolute morality of the past authoritarian era because it is restricted to the superficial and destructive layers of human life and therefore is clueless about the existence of good and of evil.

Why Do They Blow Themselves Up?

Terrorist Muslims come from authoritarian, sex-negative families that have been destroyed by the social upheaval that is happening in Middle Eastern countries. Early in their psychosexual development, these youngsters are educated to not feel (to repress) their natural sexual urges. As a result, their pleasurable feelings become twisted, distorted and experienced as something evil. During puberty and adolescence, their feelings intensify and, for some, become intolerable.
These young people are raw material that become indoctrinated and recruited into the jihadist movement by Islamic ideologues. The intolerance that they have for people enjoying themselves is a projection of their own suppressed sexual feelings. It is combined with a mystical loyalty to their fanatic leader that directs them to do Allah’s bidding, turning them into a weapon of mass destruction. Blowing people and themselves up is the sadomasochistic solution associated with an emotional (sexual) release through an act of physical bursting that they have been trained to long for.

The Functional Relation Between the Emotional Plague on the Left and Right

The following excerpt is from my forthcoming book, “Clueless”:
The emotional plague individual on the left operates subversively using his intellect to instill confusion either by political action or by inaction. The emotional plague individual on the right operates overtly using his emotions to instill terror through political reaction. For example, the Islamic State (ISIS) movement which operates from the far right originated from Muslim militants in response to the transformation of Western Society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian which was accompanied by a shift of the political mainstream to the far left.

These extremists reacted emotionally and murderously to what they saw as a threat to their way of life. A manifestation of the emotional plague from the political right, their barbaric actions suddenly caught the attention of a clueless public in the western world by generating terror.

Meanwhile, the free world led by our feckless, left wing president choses to focus not on the terrorist threat and the need to join and support the anti-ISIS forces against the Islamic fanatics but on ousting the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. He insists on this condition before he is willing to consider a military alliance. Knowing that he does not stand a chance to depose Assad, Obama’s political “action” is a disguised form of inaction. It is a destructive example of the emotional plague from the left because it generates confusion about what must be done. It effectively undermines the anti-ISIS coalition’s efforts to crush the terrorist organization militarily.

The Third World War

World War III is already in an advanced state of progression and the masses and their liberal leaders of the free world are still clueless about what and why it is happening. The War is a struggle to the death between the Free World on the political left and the Islamic State, (ISIS) on the political extreme right.
It was triggered by the unstable social conditions resulting from the anti-authoritarian transformation of the Western world including a shift to the far left of the political center beginning around 1960. The transformation spread to the Middle East and undermined the authoritarian rulers of those nations destabilizing their repressive hold on the people. Because of weakened social and political conditions, the development of the Islamic State was inevitable.
Islamic fascists running ISIS belong, from a socio-political standpoint, on the extreme right. They have a deep hatred for the unrestrained freedom of people living in the free world and feel emotionally provoked to destroy them and their liberal ways of social life.They murder westerners by mystically indoctrinating sexually starved Muslim youths into becoming suicide bombers promising them that they will be rewarded with happiness in the next world.
Another one of their weapons of mass destruction is using the lives of innocent Muslims as a Trojan Horse by displacing them from their homes while carrying embedded terrorists to infiltrate and destroy the free world.
The question before us is the following: Does the free world that is currently dominated by the forces of the political left have the necessary aggression and vitality to stand up to and exterminate the murderous forces of evil on the political extreme right? But first it is necessary to be “clued in” that a global war is actually happening.

What Happened to the Middle East?

As recently as 50 years ago, the Middle East consisted of a number of stable countries controlled by authoritarian dictators where Arabs and non-Arabs generally lived peacefully together. Today, many of these countries are losing their identity as separate nations. The entire area is becoming enveloped in chaos and much of the population is fleeing into Europe and beyond as radical Islamic terrorists are murdering anyone who stands in their way.
Current attempts to understand the reason for this disaster are inadequate because people have no knowledge of the underlying forces at work. The explanations only recognize what is happening on the social surface not on a bio-social, core level. An example of such an attempt at understanding given recently is to blame “civilization’s failure either to overcome or to accommodate the forces of modernity.”
Let us begin by asking another question: What happened to the so-called Arab Spring movement that was supposed to bring democracy to the Middle East and elsewhere? While it may have ended the regimes of secular strongmen in those countries it did not result in expected democratization in any of them. In fact, there has been more violence, chaos and less democracy than there was before the start of the Arab Spring.
Largely unrecognized is that the widespread destructiveness that is happening in the Middle East and Africa today is the direct result of the breakdown of the authoritarian structure of society into anti-authoritarianism that began in the West around 1960 and has spread like wildfire throughout the entire world including the Middle East.
A related question is the following: How can the Arab population in the Middle East who have lived under extreme authoritarian, often tribal conditions for centuries and who belong politically to the far right of center be realistically expected to function overnight in a way similar to people living in a modern, Western-style liberal democracy? This question which goes to the heart of the Arab Spring problem stems from the liberal’s mystical belief in the perfectibility of man through social and political intervention. It is mystical because what is expected is totally unrealistic. This is the belief of liberalism, a secularized version of the idea of salvation through divine intervention that is held by religious mystics on the political right. But from what has happened in the Middle East this form of mystical thinking is clearly far more socially destructive when it comes from the left.

The Degeneration of the True Liberal into Pseudo-liberal/communism

Why are some liberals capable of consistently
maintaining their true liberal socio-political character structure and others easily shift to the political extreme left and function like pseudo-liberal communist characters?
One reason is that the liberal character lives almost entirely in his superficial layer. As a result, he has little core contact and his thinking is either mechanistic or mystical. Those liberals who have mystical tendencies in their thinking will readily shift to the political left and join the “heaven on earth,” freedom peddling mantra of the pseudo-liberal/ communist. Those liberals who have no mystical tendencies will keep their true liberal identity and will often support the destructive social policies of their cohorts on the extreme left and vote for them but when pressed for a rational reason will not be able to justify why they are doing so.
