Nazi's Ban Body Mind Spirit Pioneer Welhelm Reich's Book

The Nazis banned Reich’s second book, The Mass Psychology of Fascism, in 1933. German newspapers branded him a Communist Jew who advocated the dangerous idea of “free love;” fearful for his life, Reich emigrated to the United States to continue his orgone research.

Unfortunately, Reich did not escape harassment in America. In 1947, following a series of articles about orgone in The New Republic and Harper’s, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began an investigation into Reich's claims about orgone therapy, and won an injunction against its promotion as a medical treatment.

Charged with contempt of court for violating the injunction, Reich conducted his own defense, which involved sending the judge all his books to read. He was sentenced to two years' imprisonment. In August 1956, several tons of his publications were burned by the FDA. He died of heart failure in jail just over a year later, one day before his parole hearing.
