Wilhelm Reich

For more than two decades I had experienced and understood the murderous rage against me on the part of people who became frightened to death by my scientific, factual description of the orgonotic streamings. I had met this terror in presidential candidates, Communist liberators, fascist mystics, well-adjusted psychoanalysts, neurotic court psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, directors of mental institutions, cancer pathologists without hope, schizophrenics, politicians of all kinds, scheming wives of co-workers, etc.
