Armored humans have at their disposal two ways to avoid having understanding of themselves that the science of orgonomy can provide. The first method, overt suppression, was typically used prior to 1960 when the authoritarian social order was intact. This method included direct attacks on Wilhelm Reich and his co-workers by the scientific establishment that finally resulted in sending the great scientist to his death in prison and in the public burning of his books.
In today’s anti-authoritarian social order, almost everything is permitted. Now, overt suppression is no longer necessary. It has been replaced by a more humane, “enlightened” method. Regarding psychiatric therapies, every kind of treatment under the sun is allowed and placed on an equal footing regardless of its merit. This means that even the science of orgonomy and medical orgone therapy can now be permitted and placed alongside everything else out there. This view, in effect, degrades the uniqueness of the science of orgonomy and its therapy, medical orgone therapy. As a result, most people when exposed to a presentation on medical orgone therapy who know nothing about it are naturally left with the feeling that that there is nothing special about it.
The uniqueness of medical orgone therapy done by a qualified medical orgone therapist has to do with its qualitative differences from all other forms of therapy both in terms of the process and in the results of therapy. These differences cannot be sufficiently described in words. They have to be experienced to be understood.
