In this far-reaching, extensively researched, scholarly work, psychiatrist Charles Konia, M.D. makes the first comprehensive exploration and development of the concepts first published in Wilhelm Reich's 1933 The Mass Psychology of Fascism. Dr. Konia's groundbreaking, highly original book examines from a unique, non-psychological perspective this pathology in human nature that has given us the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, an Saddam Hussein. This book will open your eyes to why every "great" social program failed in its original mission; why America is increasingly hated throughout the world; why a handful of despotic leaders can enslave millions of people; and why standards of decency and excellence continue to decline.
