A Quote by Wilhelm Reich on orgone, orgonomy, science, research, medical, health, importance, truth, discovery, fact, natural, political, politics, and distortion

In the course of the history of natural science, it always happens that profound or true thoughts or true facts were always either distorted or flattened out. The danger, especially of distortion, is particularly great in the case of orgonomy. We must be scientific, we cannot be political in these matters. And I personally declare that I will be the first to fight with all my strength, with whatever I've got against such a distortion of our principles.

Wilhelm Reich
