Who was Wilhelm Reich and why has history tried to erase him

Postby Scepcop » 09 Feb 2010, 12:46

From the March 2003 Idaho Observer:

Who was Dr. Wilhelm Reich and why has history tried so hard to erase him?

Before dismissing what you are about to read, consider that the FDA did everything in its power to eliminate the knowledge of orgone energy from the world because, it claimed, "it doesn't exist." If orgone energy does not exist, it is, therefore, not a threat, is it? Rather than ignore this thing that does not exist, the FDA effectively sentenced Dr. Wilhelm Reich to death and, for at least a decade, actively pursued a campaign to destroy all the books, notes and research papers it could find containing the word "orgone." Judging by the government's actions, orgone energy does, indeed, exist.

by Jerry Morton

Dr. Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957) is still noted historically for his work in psychiatry and psychoanalysis. However, Dr. Reich's work in biophysics has been stricken from the historical record.

In the mid 1930s Dr. Reich began noticing an energetic connection that is shared by all living beings and had the clarity of mind to not dismiss the observation as unimportant. Dr. Reich called this energy "orgone" and worked for decades demonstrating its laws and studying its various manifestations. His work encompassed 40 years within six countries but in the end he suffered the indignity of seeing his life's work banned in America and tons of his books and journals burned by the U.S. food and Drug Administration per bureaucratic decree. It was a brazen act of censorship that is overlooked today within the texts of history.

Prior to his orgonomic research, Dr. Reich had earned an international reputation as a scientist of integrity. Once, after he had demonstrated orgone energy to Albert Einstein, the famous physicist exclaimed that, "this would be a bombshell to physics."

Dr. Reich spent his last days in prison falsely labeled a quack and a racketeer by the American government and the American medical system.

Wilhelm Reich was born in Austria in 1897 as the son of a rather wealthy farmer and, as was the common at that time, he was home schooled first by his mother and later by a number of tutors. He excelled in his studies because of his intelligence and also, in part, out of fear of his father's horrible temper that would erupt over something as trivial as an incorrect answer in his studies.

Reich's family was tragically dysfunctional and, at age 13, his mother poisoned herself to flee the abuse of Reich's violently-tempered father. Four years later, Reich's father died of pneumonia -- a financially destitute and lonely man. Reich, at 17, ran the farm himself for a short time after his father's death but the property was destroyed by WWI in 1915.

After serving in the Austrian army on the Italian front, Reich began attending classes at the University of Vienna and graduated in 1922 as a doctor of medicine.

While studying for his doctorate, Reich became a protégé of Dr. Sigmund Freud and soon after graduating became the clinical assistant at Freud's Psychoanalytical Clinic where he, himself, became a pioneer in psychoanalysis.

In his book, "Character Analysis" (1933), Dr. Reich detailed a biological basis for neurosis and provided a step toward the discovery of the cosmic orgone energy. During the years 1936-1939, Dr. Reich conducted experiments concerning the idea of airborne infection. He showed that microorganisms form themselves from inorganic material and disintegrating organic substances. He proved where airborne germs came from and demonstrated the absurdity of the commonly held "air germ" theory. It was during these experiments in 1939 that Dr. Reich accidentally discovered radiation particles which he later named orgone.

An assistant had mistakenly taken the wrong container from the sterilizer and heated the substance within it to incandescence. The substance was common ocean sand and, when cultured and inoculated on an egg and agar medium, yielded a yellow growth. When viewed under high magnification this growth was seen as vesicles (he called them SAPA bions) that glimmered an intense blue color that, in time, would grow and then move about.

As he continued to experiment with these "bions" he noticed that when he placed live cancer cells next to them the cells would die. It was during days of observing these phenomena that Dr. Reich came down with an extreme case of conjunctivitis and his eyes became very sensitive to light. He noticed that it affected his eyes the most when he was looking at these vesicles through his microscope.

During the course of this work in the winter of 1939, Dr. Reich also noticed that he had developed a suntan under his clothing and he knew he was being exposed to some type of radiation and it greatly worried him. He used a radium electroscope to test the culture tubes and it gave no reaction. It took a few weeks for him to realize that this newly noticed radiation (that he had named orgone) was present everywhere.

Taking his SAPA bions into the darkness of his basement and waiting for two hours he noticed his hair and clothing emitted a blue glimmer and that the room was filled with a hazy, slow-moving, gray-blue vapor.

Over time, Dr. Reich demonstrated that the orgone radiation was the same energy that the sun gave off and that the incandescing and swelling of the sand had released this energy once again from its material state. He was forced to this conclusion by the facts before him but he admitted having to overcome great emotional reluctance in doing so.

Further experiments showed that this ever-present orgone would be repelled by metal objects and absorbed by organic material. By making a box with alternate layers of organic (wool) material and metal, Reich found that he could accumulate a more concentrated field of orgone. He called these boxes "orgone accumulators" and they had a major role in his experimentation with orgone.

Nearly 15 years later, the American government made an attempt to wipe the very word "orgone" from the English vocabulary, by banning the accumulator and destroying Dr. Reich's books and journals.

Dr. Reich was able to watch orgone in the various forms it would take on within an accumulator. The forms were: A bluish-gray, fog-like formation; deeply blue-violet luminous dots or; whitish, rapid rays.

He was also able to demonstrate and measure orgone with a thermometer and an electroscope as well as with a Geiger counter.

What astounded Dr. Reich was the fact that for over two thousand years the presence of this orgone energy was overlooked or argued away whenever a scholar attempted to describe what he saw.

What Dr. Reich discovered is nothing short of the energy responsible for the biological, orgiastic pulsation of life on Earth (and possibly the universe). Rather than embracing Dr. Reich's discoveries, the collective (politically-motivated) scientific community responded with levels of anger and derision that bordered on hatred; rather than conducting investigations of their own and furthering the knowledge of orgone energy for the betterment of mankind, the (politically-motivated) scientific community led the charge to destroy any documents that even mention the word "orgone." And then the (politically-motivated) scientific community destroyed Dr. Reich.

Though a meticulous researcher and prolific scientist, Dr. Reich saw himself as only a pioneer in the field of orgonomy (the science of orgone) and likened himself to Christopher Columbus. In his book, "Ether, God and the Devil" (1950 and 1951), he said that, as Columbus did not discover New York City or the resources on the west coast of America, but rather a stretch of seashore that was up to that time unknown to Europeans, so he only discovered the orgone energy of orgiastic plasma pulsations. This phenomena, being the common etheric energetic thread coursing through all life forms, represents a universe of discovery of which Dr. Reich located only one small shoreline.

The object of the (politically-motivated) scientific community's opposition of Dr. Reich's work was his "orgone accumulator." The orgone accumulator, a "box" large enough for a person to sit in and constructed of alternating layers of organic and inorganic substances, was used to successfully treat his patients for various maladies. In his book "Cancer Biopathy" (1948), Dr. Reich recreates his carefully documented work regarding the treatment of several cancer patients deemed hopeless and terminal by orthodox medicine. Several of his cancer patients were "cured" but, being the careful man of science he was, Dr. Reich was careful not to declare orgone treatment as a cure for cancer.

After a lengthy harassment campaign by the FDA over the medical use of orgone that began in the mid 40s, Dr. Reich died in prison in 1957.

All of his books and papers were, by federal decree, burned up through 1962 and may have continued on a lesser scale until 1970. The government of the United States had declared that orgone did not exist and orgone was the only word that was necessary to appear in print to qualify the material as worthy of destruction.

During the course of his varied orgone experiments, Dr. Reich touched upon many aspects of science. Among these, the disciplines of medicine, physics, cosmology and meteorology. He discovered atmospheric orgone and noticed that, in the presence of pollutants of various kinds, including electromagnetic emissions, the orgone would become stagnant and cause illness and environmental damage.

Dr. Reich called this "stagnant" orgone, "dead" orgone or "DOR." The effects of DOR would often be that of drought and the formation of deserts.

To counter the effects of DOR, Dr. Reich added long pipes to an orgone accumulator box and pointed it skyward to help balance the atmospheric orgone and bring rain. He called this device a "cloud buster."

In one experiment starting in October, 1954, Dr. Reich was successful in bringing rain to the desert around Tucson, Arizona. Even before the rain fell the newly-balanced orgone had caused the grass to grow a foot tall in the desert. This green spectacle stretched some 40 to 80 miles to the east and north of that city. It took tremendous skill to use the cloud buster because it drew the dead orgone into the device and could pose serious health problems to both the operator and the atmosphere itself.

The ability to safely use the cloud buster died with Dr. Reich and remained buried for half a century. Science, good or bad, historically moves forward of its own inertia-a scientist dies, another scientist picks up his notes and continues where he left off. Not so with orgonomy. It wasn't until almost 50 years after the (politically-motivated) scientific community sentenced Dr. Reich to death and erased the memory of his work from history that a new and improved cloud buster would be developed.

Self-taught bioelectric innovator Don Croft of has recently developed a modern cloud buster he claims is safe for both the operator and the environment.

Dr. Reich touched upon many aspects of the cosmic orgone energy and knew that it would take many people to develop the many potentials of its nature. In 1948 a close friend of Dr. Reich by the name of A.S. Neill stopped by Reich's laboratory, called Orgonon, in the state of Maine. He saw a small motor turning over that was attached to an orgone accumulator. He said that Reich cried out with great joy, "the power of the future!"

When later asked if he had developed that power source any further Reich is reported to have said that his job was one of discovery and he was going to leave it to others to carry out the results.


Note: The IO understands the controversial nature of orgone energy. Though one cannot see or smell it, sensitive equipment can measure it. Therefore, it exists -- regardless that the FDA determined it did not exist in 1954.

Our contemporary controversy, therefore, has nothing to do with whether or not orgone energy exists because the federal government's non-scientific wishing it away doesn't make so. The controversy is the modern adaptations of orgonomy and claims by a growing circle of people who believe that Reich's work provided a foundation for positive changes in our embattled world.

One has to wonder if those who worship the "DOR" and revel in its ability to cause misery recognized Reich's discoveries as a direct threat to their globalist intentions. Is that recognition the power behind the campaign to ruin the man and erase the memory of his orgonomic research from history?

The answer becomes obvious when you place into perspective what the government did to Reich. It killed him at the age of 60 for continuing to research, without FDA approval, something it claims does not exist; when asked to prove orgone energy does not exist, it refused to provide the science that supports its claims or the identity of those who conducted the experiments and reached that conclusion.

Those who have ever taken a high school-level biology class understand the scientific method and can determine that Dr. Reich was sent to his death by a government that ignored science to make a political point for all those who may wish to explore orgone energy: Do not.

Most IO readers understand energy; that good energy that produces good things (like sunshine, positive thoughts, healthy food and healthy bodies) occupies higher vibrational frequency ranges and bad energy that produces bad things (rot, disease, unhealthy food and negative thoughts) occupy lower vibrational frequency ranges.

It follows, therefore, that a world saturated in low frequency vibrations will produce a world filled with anger, hostility, disease and death.

What kind of world do we live in now?

Ah, success. Because the U.S. government has managed to keep low, through a variety of socio/political maneuvers, the vibrational frequencies within which Americans operate, our people are sick, angry, frightened and living in chaos -- the environment most conducive to totalitarian control.

Dr. Reich's work evoked the wrath of the baby totalitarian state. It killed him to send a message to scientists that orgone energy is off limits for further study. In the absence of scientists developing beneficial applications for orgone energy, the totalitarian state has come of age.

Now it appears we have nothing left to lose -- the pretense of freedom is gone (all that remains is the illusion of freedom being kept alive in the minds of dwindling numbers of Americans).

As the totalitarian police state emerges, its emissions of dead, stagnant energy from exponentially-increasing sources (both organic and inorganic) is also increasing. Rising to the challenge are groups of people who have picked up Dr. Reich's work and are running with it.

Next month we will continue this story with the adventures of those who claim to be using orgone energy to replace bad energy with good.

A small candle, when lit, can, all by itself, overcome darkness where the same amount of darkness cannot similarly affect light. The same is true when it comes to good and bad energy. That's why bad energy must have outside help from government and its duplicitous minions to prevail.

Those who have chosen to expand upon Reich's work believe they can prove to a candid, if not doubting world, that the following ills can be corrected by the proper application of techniques that harness orgone energy. They believe in their ability to prove how properly directed orgone energy will neutralize bad energy emissions from cell towers, chemtrails and angry people. They also believe they can reproduce Dr. Reich's experiments and bring rain to drought-ridden areas.

Can they direct orgone energy to accomplish these things? My own personal skepticism has been extreme for many months. However, a few things have happened to cause my skepticism to waver and my hope begin to grow.

Besides, we haven't much else to lose. Wouldn't it be marvelous if something as simple as overcoming bad energy with good is the antidote for all the evil which has so saturated our modern world? Isn't it also just like God to set things up to be so simple even his human children can do it? (DWH)


Whatever happened to William Washington?

by Don Harkins

As Dr. Reich indicated, he only discovered the shoreline of what could lead to a universe of potential applications for orgone energy. Though we may never know which potential application caused the federal government to sentence Dr. Reich to death and zealously seek out and destroy all references to his work, a clue may be found in the mysterious fall, 1948 disappearance of William Washington.

Reich biographer Harvard graduate Myron Sharaf (Fury on Earth: A Biography of Wilhelm Reich [1983]), also pictured in the white shirt in the center of the photo at left [in the IO newsprint edition], claims to have met “Bill” at the University of Chicago when they were both freshmen in 1944. Sharaf explains that Bill began working with Dr. Reich in the summer of 1947 to help him with the mathematics of developing an orgone energy motor. “When he left Orgonon in fall, 1948, he took the motor set-up with him in order to work on further refinements. He was supposed to return to Orgonon in early summer, 1949, but he did not appear, nor was there any word from him,” wrote Sharaf.

Sharaf and Dr. Reich checked out some of the stories Bill had told them about his past and previous employment. “None of these stories proved true,” Sharaf noted.

Dr. Reich was able to speak to Bill on the phone once in late summer, 1949. Reich, a lifelong student of the human mind, deduced that Bill was hesitant in his speech because he was being monitored by some outside force, probably the federal government, a conclusion not shared by Sharaf. “Washington was never heard from again,” wrote Sharaf.

Ola Raknes, Ph.D., had observed the orgone-force motor in action and saw that the theory was valid. Unfortunately, no further research into this area was conducted after Bill left Orgonon. “This would be an extremely important area of orgone energy research,” Raknes observed in 1970.


We should begin construction of the Museum of Federally-Buried Technologies so we can dream about what the world would be like if problem-solving intelligence was celebrated instead of persecuted.

Did the FDA ban evil's antidote in 1957?

Dr. Wilhelm Reich, MD, died at the age of 60 after serving eight months of a two year prison sentence. Since his death, tremendous energy has been expended to erase his memory from history. One must ask, “Why?”

The following paragraph, taken from the book, “Wilhelm Reich and Orgonomy -- The great psychologist and his controversial theory of life energy,” by Ola Raknes, Ph.D, of Norway (1970), sets the stage for answering that question: “The existence of such energy is still contested -- or at least neglected -- by practically all scientists who have not themselves made the observations and experiments, and had the experiences, that form the basis of the discovery. An American Federal Court has even, in March, 1954, in a Decree of Injunction, declared Orgone Energy to be nonexistent, without, however, giving the facts on which the Injunction is said to be based. In a correspondence with the present writer [Raknes] the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), on whose complaint the Injunction was decreed, said that experiments executed with the most modern equipment and methods by experienced scientists had proved the nonexistence of orgone energy. None of these experiments has ever been published, and in further correspondence, the FDA refused to divulge the names of those scientists or any of the experiments on which the complaint was said to be based. As Dr. Reich did not obey the injunction he was arraigned for contempt of court and sentenced to two years in the penitentiary. He died in prison after not quite eight months.”

Dr. Reich, a world-renowned psychologist and protégé/contemporary of Sigmund Freud, was sent to prison at age 60 to die because he insisted upon continuing his research into orgone energy -- in defiance of a federal injunction that resulted from the FDA's apparently unscientific opinion that orgone energy did not exist. All Reich's books were banned and those that were found were burned by the FDA. Any printed matter that contained the word “orgone” was subject to the ban and burning by the FDA per the injunction. The injunction was still holding in 1970.

The question now becomes, “What is orgone energy?”

If it did not exist, why did the federal government behave so militantly in its attempts to remove all mention of it from the world of print and the minds of people? Why did the federal government give a death sentence to a well-respected old man for insisting upon continuing his studies of something that doesn't even exist?

The federal government has used its authority to ban many viable and useful technologies. Should we accept the FDA's position that orgone energy doesn't even exist or is it in our best interests to take another look at Dr. Reich's work and his controversial theory of life energy? More importantly, can orgone energy be used to help neutralize the negative energies that so permeate our modern world?


What is orgone energy?

Dr. Wilhelm Reich was first a protégé and then a contemporary of Sigmund Freud. Most people associate Freud with his belief that the manifestations of being human are directly related to sexual repression or expression.

As Dr. Reich's work began pulling away from that of Freud, he became intrigued with identifying the specific form of energy that made sexual expression possible. He discovered that the formula of function that led to an orgasm was the common formula of function for all biological processes in all living matter: tension ® charge ® discharge ® relaxation.

Dr. Reich isolated the particle responsible for this formula and named it “bion.” He was also able to culture bions from inorganic matter and, quite accidentally, solved the riddle of biogenesis: He discovered the mechanism whereby lifeless substances transition to living matter.

He later named the energy that resulted from bionic activity “orgone.” It's properties can be summarized as follows: 1. Organic substances attract and absorb orgone energy; 2. Metallic substances attract and repel or reflect orgone energy; 3. Stoppage of orgone energy by any metallic obstacle as well as by a sensitive living organism will result in a rise in temperature

So this guy that doing Lysenkoism with his field was run through the ringer with the McCarthyism crowd. That does not support his ideas which did not pan out. I mean like the 'shrink' getting naked and fondled his patients. That's normal :roll:

Re: Who was Wilhelm Reich and why has history tried to erase

Postby Twain Shakespeare » 01 Aug 2010, 12:43

I tried to mpost this to the Idaho Observer, but they are defuct. Weird too)

I have been a Reichian since I read that book (Mass Psychology of Fascism)at 18. It remains the best theory I have ever heard, at least for its time, of human nature.

The big question one has to debate about Reich is at what point did he “go crazy”? I strongly suspect that he was driven to at least the edge of irrationality by the persecution by his last days, but he had an excuse.

Reich was first accused of having gone insane by Freud, who excommunicated Reich when Reich refused to accept the dogma of the death-instinct. I know that as late as 1980, students of Freudian psychology were required to study the first half of Reich's Character Analysis, and forbidden to read the second half.

Reich at this time had been the only socialist among the Freudians. He had established one of the first public health clinics in the world in Vienna, and was the only analyst to work with the poor and the working classes. At this point (early thirties) he went to Wiemar Germany and joined the Communist Party.

He persuaded the German Communist Party to include free birth control, sexual education, and the reform of sexual laws, including the legalization of sex by minors (not with, but among. Teenagers could be put in the reform prisons for having sex then.) in their platform. The Party, in the last election before the Nazis' win, largely due to a youth vote inspired by the Reichian program got the largest vote they ever had, and the largest vote in the country, frightening the rich enough to turn them to Hitler. (I was working on the sexual politics of this era for my thesis when I realized it was definitely not career track and I parted ways with academia. (Plus I went crazy and got married.)

Then, in response to orders from Moscow, Reich was expelled from the communists. Radek, the leader, told him he would be the first to be shot after the Revolution, and dredged up Freud's accusations of insanity. From this point, Reich considered Fascism and Communism to be isomorphic, and he wrote The Mass Psychology of Fascism, in which he developed the theory of “the emotional plague” and traced its evolution from the invention of taboos, through the veneration and imitation of “the insane” and their obsessive/compulsive rituals (witness the purity rituals of Islam), the evolution of temple states, proselytizing religions, and nations, to fascism.

The more I learn, the more correct his theories seem in terms of both the data he had, and subsequent events and discoveries, but I won't go into that here.

It was at this point that, as you know, he observed (or hallucinated, according to detractors) orgone energy, which most detractors point to as proof of his insanity, although the observations were not publicized at this time. What got him chased out of Norway was Kinsey like research into the physiology of sex, which got him accused of being an insane sex maniac.

Since other people observed Reich's orgone, including Einstein, I cannot accept the hallucination hypothesis, especially since other people throughout history have made similar observations (Paracelsus, for example, and there is elan vital, odic force, vril, and, most interesting of all, the energy spoken of by Tibetan Buddhist and Hindus (prana?), and the (chi?) known to Daoists. (apologies for my uncertainty concerning the Eastern terms. These are the fringes of my familiarity, and I mainly keep these items filed in the mystic half of my mind)

Likewise, if one person sees a ufo, it is grounds to doubt his or her sanity. (not saying its good grounds, but it is a thing to be checked, if only because the accusation will be made) If 32 see the same ufo at the same time doing the same thing, as happened at Reich's research station in Arizona, something different than insanity was going on. Mass Hallucination is not an explanation, because we don't know what the nature of mass hallucinations might be.

However, when one concludes that the Air Force is protecting one from hostile alien space craft on the secret orders of the President, who is sending you coded messages in his speeches, as Reich allegedly did, it makes me suspect one has flipped, especially since one bit of evidence he had for this claim was “Eisenhower's smile shows that he and his wife were genitally happy.” I heard Ike's wife hated him at that point because of his adultery in WW II. But Reich was under a hell of a lot of pressure then, getting old and possibly sick as well. And there is a difference between going insane and being driven insane.

That's about it for now. I got you some context for Mass Psychology. As for the rest, I love talking about Reich, but everytime I have, it seems to be in context of the if/when he went insane. I have learned the accusations, and more important, their rebuttals. Now you may be more prepared if you hear these accusations in the future.

I do not know if Reich was hated for orgone, or if that was just an excuse to shut up one of the most dangerous political and religious radicals on the planet. Mass Psychology was burned along with Reich's other works, even though it contains no mention of the word orgone, and predated the discovery.(I suspect both, but I also suspect the political motive was far more important. I can't imagine any president since WW II who wouldn't want him locked up or killed, crushed and obliterated after reading Mass Psychology.(except JFK, who might have just wanted an orgone box for the sexual boost, if he had heard of them) Maybe I exaggerate, but thirty years of looking at the world through a Reichian prism gives one biases.

Reich's other most literary work is The Murder of Christ. Personally, I suspect Jesus was more like a celibate David Koresh than a super-sexed conduit of orgone energy, but the book is an awesome account of what happens when the emotional plague of the mass mind of armoured, stunted, orgone-dead individuals encounter life. Beware, be wary, and be aware. If you talk about Reich, I suspect you need to watch out for hammers and nails

Two last points.
Certainly Reich fits my perception of cult leaders, but that does not invalidate what he said. It merely shows he was human, and was subject to the forces he described.
The emotional plague was desexed, and refurbished as the authoritarian personality by Adorno, then resexed as the homophobic personality, which is ironic, since homosexuality was one of the aspects of the plague, according to Reich, who considered homosexual acts to be just one step above masturbation on the narcicism scale.

Hope you enjoyed this and our conversation continues. Keep me posted, especially on anything Reich related, and may your experiences be groovy. (Should I say, “May orgone be in you”?)

Hmmm... Tesla was a mega genius that was greatly admired but not a social-political favor. His acts of "challenging" a certain Mr. Edison as well as Mr. Bell on a few occasions, kept him in the background for the most part; his more socialistic views and desire to create a FREE form of energy likewise alienated him because it didn't support the Robber-Baron attitudes of his times...

James Churchward was a highly acclaimed scholar and archeologist BUT, when he began sharing his thoughts about Atlantis and Lemuria the establishment quickly took action to discredit him and paint him a kook. Ironically, his sins tie into the same era as Tesla's and as we've seen Reich.

In short, I believe that era had a group of armchair experts who chose to kiss the butt of the social-political and "Industry" favorites rather than theoretical science, which really was "unheard-of" in those times; a thing of Jules Verne composition, if you would, and thus, not something to be taken seriously. But a redeeming irony has come about...

The work of Tesla as well as his role in history haven't just seen a new revival of public interest but support... especially given the whole "Green" mode of thinking and how Tesla's theories support such.

The theories & research put forth by Churchward are likewise gaining growing favor and credibility as the result of more advanced scientific method and our ability to do forms of research his era couldn't even imagine as possible.

In the past two generations alone, hundreds of once believed "preposterous theory" energy sources have been proven -- the "invisible" has become revealed and thus, tangible. Most physicists and molecular engineers are confident that other "finer" energy fields will be proven in time... including Dark Matter and other such theoretical substances (most of which mirror a great deal of esoteric connection/reflection).

My point being... most all of it starts off as a thing of contention but if it has value/substance to it, it will eventually be proven out. Maybe not verbatim to what the original thinker introduced, but close and in a manner that is essentially "unshakable".

Martyrdom happens in instances that go well outside the parameters of religion or fighting for human rights. ;)
