Der Fall Wilhelm Reich
At the end of his life, Wilhelm Reich – psychiatrist and experimental scientist searching for the fundamentals of life – finds himself on trial, charged with deception. His dream of liberating human individuality makes him a dangerous opponent of an American system that is striving after 1945 for global hegemony, using all available means. Was it madness to believe in man’s liberty or was Reich simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, and being a holistic global thinker, accurately observing fa-reaching socio-political linkages? Ten years after his mysterious death, his writings, once burnt by the US FDA, become an important source of inspiration for a ’68 generation in revolt.
