The story of Wilhelm Reich offers both an inspiring lesson—and an instructive warning—for those who seek a deeper understanding of our world and, even more so, for those who would change the status quo. Conflict was prominent in Reich’s life, as was great courage. In the 1920s, he came into conflict with Freud in his inner circle.

In the 1940s, Reich was an early critic of the domination of American medicine by the pharmaceutical industry.Read More.

You learned in grade school science class that energy can appear in either the potential or kinetic form. The electricity in the wiring of your home is available for any use you choose. When you turn a light switch to the “on” position, energy appears in the form of light. This is the kinetic state because the energy is being used or expended. However, when you turn the light switch to the “off” position, the energy remains in the potential state–ready to be used at the flick of a switch.Read More.
