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 They have been replaced by political extremism and people using politics – socio-politics – to find solutions for personal problems that originate from their own destructive, middle and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.

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?
To learn more about medical orgone therapy see the website of the American College of Orgonomy: www.orgonomy.org

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.”

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.
