Example text

Let’s take a closer look. Needless to say, Reich’s Rousseauian view seems terribly ingenuous today. Reich was convinced (he wrote about it constantly) that man’s sexuality is naturally harmonious and peaceful. Only social alienation and repression by authoritarian society diverted this sexuality toward the pathological. “Anyone who is not dying of hunger,” he said, “feels no impulse to rob and thus does not need morality to keep him from robbing. The same fundamental law applies to sexuality: anyone who is sexually satisfied will have no impulse to rape and does not need morality to counter the impulse.

Thirty years! Time has passed in Western societies and nothing is the same as it was before. Today, nothing is clear-cut when we have to agree on a definition of historical progress or even of social justice. Since the collapse of the Red messianism and the fall of the Berlin Wall, we are all engaged in pure “activity,” less concerned with final outcomes and often indifferent to meaning itself. The concern for being productive, the liberal con47 The Tyranny of Pleasure sensus, the paramount power of money, cautious hoarding and disillusioned Weltanschaung: such is, roughly speaking, the new landscape.

He is one of those leading thinkers who become known without being read. Without even being opened, their books become Gospel. That’s the way it is. That was undoubtedly the case with Reich. The role that he played, and continues to play, in this great sexual business has as much to do with firing up the imagination as with any conceptual advances.
