Wilhelm Reich Listen, Little Man from Noonday

Listen, Little Man! tells of the inner storms and conflicts of a scientist and physician who watched, over decades, first naïvely, then with amazement and finally with horror, what the Little Man does to himself; how he suffers and rebels, how he esteems his enemies and murders his friends; how, wherever he gains power as a ‘representative of the people,’ he misuses that power and makes it into something more cruel than the power which previously he had to suffer at the hands of individual sadists of the upper classes.” — back cover
