This is a subtitled version of the documentary "Wer hat Angst vor Wilhem Reich" by Antonin Svoboda in coproduction with Austrian TV.

The fame of Wilhelm Reich, whose ideas are nowadays anew experiencing a renaissance, especially in the USA, is based on two pillars: The concept of Sexual Revolution and the concept of Orgone Energy.

The film by Antonin Svoboda describes equally informative as well as concise the origin of both concepts as rooted in the life of Wilhelm Reich, embedded in 20th Century History.
It is very well suitable for an introduction to life and work of Reich, though not totally objective.

Often Reich is misunderstood as the prophet of our present, outwardly permissive society, who has become in the best case superflous now, but the finding of his diagnosis, that the mechanisms of Capitalism disturb or suppress a natural development of human sexuality, today has more actuality then ever. Who is familiar with the work of Wilhelm Reich, understands, that pornography as well as excessive promiscuity is not a sign of sexual freedom but actually of the contrary.

Many, many thanks for your positive attention! I have to admit that I was not here for a long time and I feel very remorseful about that, reading the many friendly and constructive comments.

As a natural scientist Reich surely made many mistakes. According to newer considerations of mine, many of the effects, which Reich assigned to an unknown energy, he called Orgon, can be explained by means of the THEORY OF BIOPHOTONS, which also is often misunderstood as esoteric. The information which potentially is transmittable via biophotons, especially between nerve cells, within one organism, and even from organism to organism, is in principle a biological information, and should not be confounded with telepathy.
