Toward a self-regulating character structure. 2 Character Structure (Human Structure). An individual's typical structure, his stereotyped manner of acting and reacting. The orgonomic concept of character is functional and biological, not a static, psychological, or moralistic concept. The book forms a comprehensive whole in reHecting the sexual­ political conditions of the 1920's; essentially, it is still valid today. The scientific and medical findings made since 1930 in the field of sex-economy have all been published in extenso. Hence, I present The Sexual Revolution in virtually unchanged form.

William Reich discovered The healing power of Orgone. Orgone is a healing energy that exists in abundance. Thankfully, some of his books survived. Great intellect and great courage are the traits that make truly great discoverers. Wilhelm Reich was the rare exception in that his courage outweighed even his great intellect.

The Sexual Revolution (1936)

The Sexual Revolution (1936). Reich's first book, Der triebhafte Charakter: eine psychoanalytische Studie zur Pathologie des Ich ("The Impulsive Character: A Psychoanalytic Study of the Pathology of the Self"), was published in 1925. It was a study of the anti-social personalities he had encountered in the Ambulatorium, and argued the need for a systematic theory of character.

  • Interesting. It basically states that sexual repression is the corner stone of authoritarian, patriarchal society. The family is the mini prison cell everybody is born into, and since nobody else is available the child is guaranteed to build some Oedipus complex toward her parents, as even suppressed sexuality must flow in some direction. The family itself is the "root cause" of Oedipus complex, as the child must bind to someone in a generally sex negating culture, as his/her sexuality slowly develops (yes, Reich thinks even small child has some sexual drives, depending the age/maturity of the child). Reich is a big supporter of adolescent sexuality (but not any form of pedophilia), as youngsters suffer enormously until they are "allowed" to sex under the marriage contract (thankfully our age, at least in the so-called western world is more supportive and sex no longer requires a marriage license).
    In Reich's opinion, the suppressed sex drives manifest in every possible form of perversion and mental sickness.
    On the other hand, when somebody's sex drives allowed to develop naturally, the resulting person is much more balanced (and much harder to control...). Far from becoming a mindless animal, a gentle, trusting person develops, not necessarily capable of life-long monogamy, but very picky in sexual relationships, as quality matters and not quantity.
    The problem is, that every child arrives into an already sick world, so there is little opportunity for the poor child to develop "naturally", unhindered by the already sick masses of people. That is why Reich supported the radical ideas of communism, and the dissolution of family. In his opinion the children must live with their age group under the guidance of specially trained people who let them develop in a natural way and not passing their existing sexual inhibitions to them. The parents can of course visit the child but too strong, unnatural bonds must not be developed. In a few generations the sexually sick people simply die out and the rest can live happily ever after.
    Interesting - there is little chance it can be arranged as Reich envisioned. But there is certainly a lot of truth and good quality science in his works. Some of his ideas, like public support for adolescent sexuality can actually work and make our world a better place.

  • A great take on sexual repression and sexual liberation.

  • This is a book that stuck around with me for awhile, but I ended up letting it go. It tends to have very scientific language and is not an easy read. This is a dense book. But, it does make up for that with very intelligent discussion by Dr. Reich. It is a must read for sure.

  • In this book you can read about revolutionary attempts to build camps for "deliquent" children in the early pre-Stalinization Soviet Union. In this book, you can learn the importance of the fight of young people for healthy sexual activity, and the negative neurotic damage done by this society's anti-sexual repression. You can read this in relatively short articles Reich wrote on a variety of topics collected here under this name.

    This book is the most approachable introduction to Reich's positive contributions on the role of sexuality in capitalist society, on destruction of compulsory sex morality, and about what a new freer less pathological world would be like. Most of his other books were reedited in the 1940s and 1950s and smothered with the mumbo jumbo of his "orgone biopathy" theories. These theories were more of an expression of Reich's mental breakdown under the hammer blows of Stalinism, Fascism, and Americanism, than anything resembling science.

    Perhaps this book has less of that because almost all of Reich's works were banned by the US government during the 1950s through the late 1960s. This was the first one of his books legally published (I remember reading bootleg editions of his work before then) after that ban and might have less of that stuff for that reason. Whatever people misremember about the 1960s, it was quite revolutionary to see this book with this author and this title in bookstores in 1968!

    If you have never read Reich, or if you have been turned off by the insanity of orgone theory, this will be a pleasant surprise.

  • Ignore the dismissive comments of Tony Thomas regarding orgonomy. He says that it doesn't resemble science, but not all sciences have been discovered yet. Reich attempted to study a phenomena which had no established means of observation, and when he couldn't cure cancer quickly enough, was treated worse than any scientist since the Renaissance, perhaps. Because of this, you'll hear a lot of people with views based on the propaganda released when the government sought agreement from their supporters to deny Reich his rights. These layman will never claim to possess evidence that his work is mumbo jumbo, because saying that he was a crazy communist is much more effective propaganda.
