SOCIALIST PATIENTS' COLLECTIVE / PATIENTS' FRONT SPK/PF(H)
Parts of the music scene, especially in the
U.S.A. show a special preference for murderer and other stories of the CIA et
al to describe new-revolutionary movements like the Socialist Patients'
All those authors who go on to make use of the mentioned sources run the risk to become punished by sentence to pay some millions of dollars and to up from half a year of prison.
For readers who are interested not in fiction, confusion and analphabetic orthography and geography, but in the facts concerning the Socialist Patients' Collective we list here the following events (brief time-line).
The SPK/PF(H) of nowadays insists in that the Socialist Patients' Collective during its initial existence until July 13, 1971, had and has - both regarding the theoretical contents and the way of doing -
SPK/PF(H)* SOZIALISTISCHES PATIENTENKOLLEKTIV (SPK)
List of dates
* With this complete designation we are giving as agreed the requested orientation to additional new foundations and continuations of the SPK of 1970/71 realised meanwhile. At the same time with that we counteract by all legal reasons falsified factual depictions which are consequently hostile to patients. The divergent respective connotations within this text have been chosen by us very carefully. Those who are interested will appreciate them as additional information. It is only for this reason that we are using them apart from the designation SPK/PF(H), in this list of dates.
At the Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Heidelberg since 1964 there
was employed a physician and scientist who took seriously the pretension of
university 'to make science for human beings' as a social task: Dr.
Wolfgang HUBER. Without reservation he devoted all his knowledge, skills and
the material equipment of the University Clinic to the interests of all the
patients who came to him. By his total commitment to all basic matters he
succeeded in stimulating a situation which in the view of the patients equaled
the abolition of their role as objects to which the patients had been damned as
being conditioned by the constraints of the System.
This science for the ill people enabled the patients to counteract the context of exploitation, that means they were no longer passive guinea-pigs and animals for slaughter sacrificed for doctors' careers and profit interests of research. It was inevitable that the so liberated patients and their doctor came into collision with the profit interests and the mechanisms of oppression, as they actually exist at an university clinic.
It became more and more obvious that since 1965 this Psychiatric Main Clinic had eventually reached rock bottom: total occupation of beds and rooms was desired and at the same time there were rejections of patients one after the other and on a massive scale and clearing them off just depending on the mood of the respective doctor who accidentally had the power of disposal of them.
|1965/66||HUBER-Ultimatum: he dismisses or ->|
|Dr. HUBER expands his voluntarily undertaken work in the
Policlinic of the Psychiatric University Clinic well beyond his personal
Suppelmentary information requested by a newspaper in Heidelberg: When Minister HAHN introduced his new university law and HUBER, at that time vice director of the policlinic of psychiatry, stood against this law in his quality as candidate of his 'list Demos' with the votes of 90 colleagues, he had long since opened the clinic to the population. "Get along with each other and stick together, foremost outside, too. If necessary also against me and the other physicians." - and the students among the patients, numerically in the minority, were included in this dynamic of dialogue -> dialectic -> collectivity. This dynamic was still far from being agitation, but already against any kind of therapy, of therapy by far not only as it is understood in the accustomed view of anachronist police, which is the "natural" view of all medicos, thus fliciatres, to say it in a word of current French, salve, ave, imperator morituri ..., in old Latin, not to speak about HEIL and heilen, German, and HEIL Hitler! as a mark of therapy! At the end of 1968 HUBER also terminated this very pursuance of his function as an elected assistant deputy, thus meaning for him merely the gesture of an unequivocal, but additional duty exercise. For more details see: "... with cult and powder he has made illness explosive..." (see Patientenfront: Festschrift 25 Jahre SPK/PF(H), 60 Jahre Huber, 10 Jahre KRANKHEIT IM RECHT, p. 22).
||Development and foundation of the original Patients' Collective by Dr. HUBER, more outside of but also and increasing inside his new sphere of work.|
||Clinic chief Walter Ritter von BAEYER makes Dr. HUBER the offer of taking his postdoctoral lecturing qualification with him in exchange for Dr. HUBER ceasing to write pamphlets.|
|The new director of the Policlinic, Dr. H. KRETZ, dissolves several HUBER therapy groups.|
||After further intrigues against Dr. HUBER and harassment of his patients by Dr. KRETZ, a letter from the clinic director Prof. von BAEYER: Dr. HUBER's contract will not be renewed as originally foreseen (three automatic renewals already. After the promise of postdoctoral lecturing qualification - see above - a permanent contract had been promised as well automatic acceptance to the status of permanent civil servant).|
|The patients defend themselves by an opinion poll, examinating the circumstances at the Psychiatric Policlinic. RENDTORFF (see below) refuses categorically the request for talks, made by the patients.|
(SOCIALIST PATIENTS' COLLECTIVE)
| Assemblies by the patients in the clinic and first general assembly
of patients' congress in the world.
12.2.1970: first general assembly of patients' congress pro illness in the world without medical doctors. Furthermore: in the presence of the press the assembled patients unanimously and without prior consultation barred the access to various physicians who wanted to push their way in. Previously there had been undertaken among other things and since January field investigations and opinion polls by the patients against the physicians.
14.2.1970: Deputy vice chancellor of the university of medicine (H. KRETZ) thus brought down, without replacement by the way.
20.2.1970: The "Hearing" so named by the physicians was turned into a tribunal against the physicians by the patients. [No, not any round-table small talk like on television. No!" said the patients (W. Sch., A.A., E.B., ...) and carried the tables out of the room.] Auditorium overcrowded (hundreds of people), media.
|21.02.70||Dismissal without notice against Dr. HUBER. Disbarment against him and the patients from all rooms in the clinic, inviolable precincts, off limits (Bannmeile).|
|23.02.70:||All disbarred patients (some 120!) from the Psychiatric Policlinic must invade in the little dwelling of the HUBERs in Wiesenbach, and off limits for the patients regarding all clinics, they usually had visited before (an order from the board of directors of the clinic, notice the cynicism!).|
||Dr. HUBER and the Patients' Collective occupy the office of the
administrative director of the clinical university institution and
begin hunger strike. (Details about this see the book in English
language: SPK - Krankheit im Recht, especially pages 25-27).
Result: a "compromise". The institutional conditions for the continued work of the SPK(H) in the rooms of the university in Rohrbacherstraße 12 are guaranteed and regular financial support and free prescriptions are agreed.
The Socialist Patients' Collective achieves, by its de facto
institutionalization as an independent working group in the university rooms the
recognition of the entire university under the direction of the rector, the
incompetence of the Medical Faculty for the care of the sick. The medical
profession as a whole was forced to demonstrate their failure status before the
eyes of the world. At the beginning of January 1970 director Rolf RENDTORFF had
still entrenched himself behind excuses regarding the patients (see above: field
investigations, opinion polls): pretext in the view of the imminent catastrophe
he was neither to be responsible nor competent.
|02.03.70||At risk of their lives (hunger strike, see above) the patients occupied the hard-won rooms of the university in Rohrbacherstraße 12.|
|24.03.70||Go-In by 30 SPK-patients to the rector of the university about prescription blockade, brought about by the General Medical Faculty.|
||Occupation of the office of Prof. von BAEYER. The patients demand blank prescriptions. Instead of an answer clinic chief von BAEYER lets loose the waiting police on these patients. Nametaking and ban on entering the house. Previously (all happened in March) the university and the clinic administration had the electricity and the telephone deliberately cut off for days in all the SPK rooms and by going through the SPK rooms with duplicate keys at midday they offered the SPK rooms for use to several secretaries for the first day of the following month (April 1970!). ("These and the junk and garbage (patients) will soon be cleared out, then can be refurnished immediately".) This we have prevented to happen.|
|03.06.70||The so called students' parliament (ruled by the left wing) passes a motion condemning the SPK. Instead of the SPK(H) it wants a "psychotherapeutic advice center" at the university of Heidelberg.|
|June 70||First PATIENTS' INFO: SPK(H) takes issue with the prohibition of the SDS (Sozialistischer Deutscher Studentenbund) and makes its own position clear: "Let's bury the silly hope for health! ... There must be no therapeutic act which has not been previously clearly and uniquely shown to be a revolutionary act."|
|06.07.70||PATIENTS’ INFO No. 2: The medical system as a wear and tear-regulator and as crisis prevention|
|6.-10.7.70||Occupation by the SPK(H) of the rector's office in the university.|
|09.07.70||Decision of the university administrative council to establish the SPK(H) as an independent institution of the university.|
|14.07.70||PATIENTS’ INFO No. 7|
|The Medical Faculty tries to prevent the implementation of the judicial decision. Among others Prof. HÄFNER: In the SPK(H) "there is more sect- or medieval crusader mentality than modern psychiatry". Result of the propaganda by the General Medical Faculty: the culture minister of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Prof. Wilhelm HAHN announces: the contract between the university and the SPK is "to the highest degree illegal".|
|The three neutral experts requested by the university support the
establishing of the SPK(H) as an independent part of the university:
|20.07.70||SPK(H) to submit report on its scientific work (required by the university administrative council).|
|On the 1.9.70 the Medical Faculty requires colleagues to take a position
of rejection of the SPK(H). The medical colleagues submit the expected
|18.09.70||Decree of the culture minister, Prof. W. HAHN, to liquidate the SPK.|
|30.09.70||Threatening attack by the police. Preventive counter-attacks prepared and partially carried out by ourselves.|
|04.11.70||First temporary forceable eviction order against the SPK.|
|07.11.70||Radio interview with five of the SPK(H).|
|Since the eviction order was formally directed at Dr. HUBER alone,
Dr. HUBER with the agreement of the patients leaves the rooms of the
Four of the SPK try to see culture minister HAHN at 5 p.m. during his consultation hour in order to request the withdrawal of his decree of 18.9.70.HAHN calls the SPK "rank growth that cannot be tolerated any longer and must be done away with as quickly as possible".
In the evening rector RENDTORFF came to the SPK.
|16.11.70||SPK applies for a temporary injunction against the pogrom propaganda of the culture minister HAHN and a civil action (Verwaltungsklage) of SPK(H) against the culture ministry.|
|19.11.70||SPK(H) teach-in in the packed lecture hall 13 in the university (1200 people).|
|23.11.70||Called by the decision of SPK Dr. HUBER comes again to the rooms in the Rohrbacherstraße.|
|Secret meeting of the Senate
The Medical Faculty applies to break the connection between the SPK(H) and the university. Decision of the senate, "that the SPK cannot be an official part of the university within or without".
|09.12.70||Eviction order against the SPK.|
|24.03.71||PATIENTS' INFO No 33: It concerns telephoned death threats against Wolfgang HUBER.|
|16.4.-5.5.71||PATIENTS' INFO No 35-36 ... Suicide equals murder / starvation equals

|13.05.71||The SPK(H)'s appeal against the eviction order is dismissed by the Landgericht Heidelberg.|
|12.-13.06.71||SPK(H) present at the University of Berlin (agitational weekend assembly).|
|SPK action at the Working Congress of the Evangelical Academy in Arnoldshain: the Congress members pass a resolution for the continuation of the SPK(H). Hundreds of evangelical participants (both male and female) coming from Europe and the so called Eastern bloc countries, in favor of the SPK not only voted and signed against the iatrocapitalist doctors' class, but rejected severely the collaborators of the medical class hostile to patients, that is the gentlemen Minister of Culture, Mr. HAHN and the director of the university, Mr. RENDTORFF, both of them evangelical theologists and thus their brothers in faith. Some of the participants even went over to the SPK after the action and remained within the SPK. Mobility of sects, does this exist?|
|Under pretext Dr. HUBER's house is searched. During a mass search operation on 25./26.6.71 eight patients of SPK are arrested illegally. Dr. Wolfgang HUBER and two further SPK(H) patients remain illegally in custody. HUBER is released one day later without any conditions. The other two are blackmailed - without any success! - to give informations against him.|
|Two SPK(H) agitational events and thereafter agitation and chorusing
slogans in front of the jail. HUBER present.
Leaflet TURN ILLNESS INTO A WEAPON.
|Press release of Dr. HUBER's lawyer.
The same day the newspaper TAGEBLATT wrote: "... state prosecutor following investigations, denied yesterday that there was any contact between SPK and the BAADER-MEINHOF-GROUP".
|PATIENTS' INFO No 47: - GORILLAS IN HEIDELBERG
" ... we demand the licenses to make use of 500 weapons for patients so that they can defend their often demanded right to self-defense, against the outbreak of unrestricted police terror, by these means".
Note: Today, 22 years later, patients described as "cripples" are requested hypocritically by the press and officials of interest groups to defend themselves with weapons, after many more patients through racist violence (HEILsgewalt) (so-called Nazis) have come to their death and this can no longer be hushed up.
| Patients' Info topical - TO THE PEOPLE
Concerning violent ending of the agitation in front of "Fauler Pelz" (prison) by police batons on 1.7.71.
TAGEBLATT: The SPK has brought a criminal action against the chief editor of the RNZ local newspaper concerning incitement to hatred (§ 130 StGB, German Criminal Code).
|04.07.71||PATIENTS' INFO No 50 - VICTORY IN THE PEOPLE'S WAR HERE!!!|
|05.07.71||SPK(H) agitational event
A students' demonstration for the SPK takes place in New York.
|PATIENTS INFO No 51 - Dialectics of Illness and Jail: Total Refusal of Speaking to and acting with every kind of authorities TRS = TAV (Totale Aussage-Verweigerung), and no more collaboration whatsoever in prison, at the law courts, at the doctors and at the (particularly the German!) press and television etc., and this forever and wherever.|
|Self dissolution of the SPK(H) only in order to protect the patients for the moment (strategical withdrawal).|
|16.07.71||Foundation of the InformationsZentrum Rote VolksUniversität (Information Center of the People's Red University) - IZRU - Planning and organization: HUBER WD.|
|19.-20.7.71||New arrest warrants against 11 SPK(H) patients, house searches and arrests.|
|07.11.72||Beginning of the trials against Drs. Wolfgang and Ursel HUBER and others.|
|07.11.72||Teach-In on the SPK(H) trials with, among others, Prof. BRUECKNER.|
|Nov. ‘72||Inquest (Enquete) of European patients on a meeting in Heidelberg organized by the IZRU of the International Information Group for Counterinvestigations into the SPK trial, supported, among others, by Jean-Paul SARTRE.|
|Dr. Wolfgang HUBER and Dr. Ursel HUBER are each sentenced to four and a half years in prison. This was not the only sentence against SPK(H) patients. SPK/PF(H): "State and government through numerous court decisions and court records have honoured our findings with, all together, more than 22 years prison in particular on account of our findings, that revolution is therapy and therapy is revolution and it can be no other way." The SPK itself was never sentenced, let alone banned.|
Before the beginning of the trial each of the SPK(H) patients and without
exception sent home each one of their advocates. Reasons: none of the advocates
was prepared or in the least capable at least to understand the SPK/PF(H) theory
of the new-revolution through strength from illness (Kraft aus der Krankheit)
, let alone enforce it publicly.
Also this we have changed in the meantime: many advocates give their signature, stand up and vouch publicly for the products of the specified application of the new revolutionary theory by virtue of illness.
And what has become of the persecutors of the SPK(H)? Not one of them without a shattered career and many of them, in the meantime, are dead. Curious? No, inevitable and generalizable (verallgemeinerbar).
SPK / PATIENTENFRONT
under conditions of imprisonment
The continuitity of SPK/PF-HUBER in the following years 1971-1976 continued
in prison. Subsequently it was distributed at all levels and in all continents.
|1973||PATIENTENFRONT as continuity of SPK(H) and return to the roots of the SPK(H), proclaimed by HUBER (SPK/PF) WD, Dr.med. in solitary confinement (Stammheim).|
|6.11.75||Beginning of the unconditional and unlimited hunger strike by Dr. Wolfgang HUBER and Dr. Ursel HUBER, both of them still in prison. A hungerstrike not for release, but for the purpose of confrontation against the doctors and their responsibility for prison and torture.|
|12.11.75||Beginning of the forced feeding torture against Dr. HUBER: 82 times in 71 days. Soon also against Dr. med. Ursel HUBER.|
|25.-28.11.75||2000 participants in the Psychoanalytical Congress "Sexuality and Politics" in Milan decide on a call for the immediate release of the hungerstrikers.|

|Release of Drs. Wolfgang and Ursel HUBER. Remaining is the withdrawal for life of their licenses to practice (Approbationsentzug auf Lebenszeit, first BERUFSVERBOT in medicine). This is not least because Drs. Wolfgang and Ursel HUBER through the SPK(H) and the PATIENTENFRONT have withdrawn all medicos the right of existence, and this in theoretical as well as in practical sense. They refuse, now as then, to have a license in common with doctors like the Auschwitz-MENGELEs and the T4-patients-euthanasia- HEYDEs.|
The continuity of SPK/PF(H) was first carried on in prison in the years of 1971-1976 and it was focussed on a few front patients. THE SPK/PF(H)-hunger strike in 1975 stimulated others to join. From this time on more and more people are in favor of illness and make use of it in their own ways and interests, according to the principle of MFE (multi-focal expansionism). MFE focus arose and came into being, also in other countries, on other continents. They all prefer serving illness free from authority instead of continuing under the delusion that as ladies and gentlemen they may go on day and night with the business of their personal immortality using authority and power, property and profit and much "culture", naturally always to the disadvantage of people like themselves.
The critical phase of SPK/PF(H) can be compared with an hour glass. After the strategic retreat of 500 patients a few of them continued in prison, until the hunger strike in 1975 which became one more experience of initiation, also for others, to join as newcomers or again, and for many others in the following years to do it independently. Hour-glass: bottleneck free from fear, no "memento mori" ("remember death"!), compare also the strength of illness during the SPK/PF(H)-hunger strike in 1975: illness is stronger than death.
Addition (to direct questions): Thus also the system of jail already
got ailing: Jacker (our term for physicians) fade away, reinforced
concrete becomes porous (Solomon's art, that is: an astral journey with head
and body through walls, is rubbish compared to this!). The wall will fall.
Jail must disappear. Gene-medicynically spoken, the "new" human being is
already missing who still fits into the old jail.
For the time being the consequence of this dilemma bestowed upon the doctors by us was that they were forbidden forced feeding, "unless the prisoner has lost consciousness". But not every prisoner has still something to lose, might be added, for example this kind of consciousness: conditionable, terrorizable, and then also "de-fineable" owing to old or new wordings of the law.
So it remains the same: When there is forced feeding it is torture by the doctors (nutritional torture), when there is no forced feeding it is treacherous murder by doctors.
Regarding the relationship SPK and PF compare also: division between militant and propagandistic pole (this means and meant: division in time but never in the matter). Observe as well the difference between militant and military. In the strategy of illness (pathopractice) there is no militarism. With regard to militancy in prison see also "The Concept of Solitary Confinement" in PATIENTENFRONT: SPK IV, p. 115, especially the methods of patients' resistance in prison, compare also above -06.11.75: Unconditional and unlimited SPK/PF(H)-hunger strike, not for release, but with the purpose of confrontation against the physicians and their responsibility for prison and torture.
Again: SPK was propaganda (propaganda and militancy, "naive and militant" - students' jargon). Propaganda is impulsation and propagation, thus also transmitting and, not only so-called, channeling. Quite in common are these the characteristics and distinctive marks of a species which truly earns the denomination human organisms, better: human bodies, spoken in the sense not of racism, but of diapathic science, closer to original Marxism than to any kind of technological science (includes of course "human sciences" and all the others), for all science is nothing but normoisic and iatrarchic pseudo-science.
Militancy as pathopractice is the direct confrontation, sought after by front
patients against the physicians. The prototypical situation in its pure
unadultarated state is pre-conceived nowhere in a more exemplary way than in the
prison hospital, where also the invisible and all traces erasing torture of
solitary confinement and visible and perceptible torture tools (instruments of
treatment) are set directly one into another under medical responsibility. Also
this in so far certainly and though not without propagandistic moment
(dialectics, no: diapathics!).
In the history of the PATIENTENFRONT there were, by the way, two further
confrontations in a prototypical situation: the hunger strike by another front
patient (G.S.) in the prison hospital of Wittlich in 1977. This
confrontation came to an end in such a way that the responsible physician had
himself declared as being mad and the front patient was set free. The other one
was the hunger strike in 1978 (T.T.): the responsible physician at
Hohenasperg was unmasked one year later by the front patient and his
advocate during a public trial as being a former, temporary participant of SPK
and thus a "gangster". Thereupon he quit his service. This may sound strange,
but it is done just like this. Anything else may be right or wrong, better or
worse, but this anything else at least was not and does not remain SPK/PF(H) .
The list of dates is interrupted at this point.
Instead of presenting the large number of PF-events singly, in the following years
we continue here with an orientating overview.
PATIENTENFRONT (1976 - 1993 ff)
The press reports about the PATIENTENFRONT, the front patients and their advocates fill some files, although we have been boycotting the German press since 1970 because of compelling reasons imposed by it.
With the assault of the PATIENTENFRONT against the International Congress of Psychiatry (Paris, february '76) HUBER WD after 4 1/2 years solitary confinement and 2 1/2 months of hunger strike immediately reappears to oppose the doctors also outside of prison.
Since 1976 the PATIENTENFRONT has continued to apply illness as a weapon of collective liberation in a widest variety of fields: everyday life, philosophy, agriculture, religion, law, music, history, so-called occultism. To articulate illness (Krankheitsbegriff), to reach the basic essentials of everything by nothing but illness (Diapathik), to apply illness to everyone and everything (Pathopraktik), everywhere and at every time, each there where he or she is and that, since the beginning. Thus for more than 25 years until now.
There are published the following statements about SPK/PF(H) by the cultural and political newspaper INVARIANTI (Rome) on the occasion of a publication in Italy in 1992 of the texts written by SPK(H) and the PATIENTENFRONT [SPK/PF(H)]:
The genetics of today are the genocide of the third millenium.
Long before its time, since the Seventies through the SPK and the PF
this war has been decided in favor of illness.
A part of the PATIENTENFRONT at present runs KRANKHEIT IM RECHT (since 23.8.1985).
Previously, in fact since January 1976, the PATIENTENFRONT had taken charge of a lawyer's office and continued it. Since one year before this office had been facing its voluntary unvoluntary closing because of political lack of prospects and financial ruin, and it was at the same time expected too much of, particularly from a huge number of patients in hospitals. It was SPK, SPK/PF(H), that saved this lawyer's office, changed its function fundamentally and maintained by that the political and legal protection highly necessary for the patients to attack the doctors' class. Owing to the compulsary move because of redevelopment measures executed in this part of town the term lawyer's office was dropped.
So the SPK/PF(H) 1985 deliberately dropped the until then existing denomination lawyers' office, risking the attempt to call it frankly what it had been and what it had exercised all time, even as an unprecedented innovation, namely KRANKHEIT IM RECHT, which has turned out meanwhile to be a matter of course, even in the eyes of the juridical and official establishment, disregarding all resistances and troubles (instigated by the ruling doctors' class against ourselves), which we had to overcome.
KRANKEIT IM RECHT is daily opened from 9 a.m. till 6 p.m. Also at
other times and 24 hours a day personal contact (a telephone answering machine
only mediates during some hours at night). No self-help group, no patients'
protection group, no run-away-house refuge (kein Weglaufhaus), no
euthanasia help (keine Sterbehilfe), no master human right circle (kein
Herrenmenschenrechtsverein), but: the only pro-illness
What does this mean in a work-technical view?
(overview from 1993)
Hurrah, came off the tablets and syringes. Coming out of hospital tomorrow. The woman doctor: "Against your SPK-HUBER there is no medicine." May I then come at once, do you write me something to be presented? Am in a hurry. / He is doped with psychopharmaca and is standing upon the railing of my balcony. It's too much for me. Come and help, for heaven's sake! / The flat is lost. Am living in the forest since yesterday. I can't go to the authority personally. They'll lock me up otherwise. / If I may not see my little girl, I'll kill them all. / In the hospital they wanted to take off my leg. I struggled and I left. The inflammation now is also gone. How do I write my cancellation? / ... ... ...
To the extern:
To the intern:
Development and increase of our skills in everybody of us, techniques of anticipation, techniques of thinking, bodily technical skills. Structures of hierarchy and working one against the other were to abolish in our context even before their arising, daily liberation from the imperatives of repression, abolition of the separation of head and hand, abolishing also the separation of phantasies, feelings, will and thinking. Economical repression from outside had collectively to be overcome in order to gain and to keep independence from money and in order to avoid dependence created by money from outside. Not any financial dependence, not any public subsidies.
Our revolution. Utopathy. Aim achieved.
There are collaborating within KRANKHEIT IM RECHT: some hundred years of formation and being trained in practical work, trade and industry, and of course also our diplomas and titles in medicine, natural and human sciences and also in informatics, philology and pedagogy, 17 different professions altogether. For comparison: in the usual offices of doctors and lawyers and also in court there only work some decades represented by small-time and donkey work (Schmalspur und Handlangerei).
There exist all tools which could be necessary for use in our work, as rooms, vehicles, computers with about hundred current programs (programmed by ourselves). Printing machines: 320 tapes for the computer printing machine have been consumed, 900.000 photocopies until now could have been done, etc.
A whole load of action, some more details of which there have been taken down in our one-week-average action report from February 1993 as an example (see below).
NB: What nowadays is KRANKHEIT IM RECHT was then already SPK(H), case by case (Rechtszug um Rechtszug). Has the SPK(H) not at that time already "tactically" pathopracticed each case, often enough from the outset and in addition? Compare! On whose side was and is thus, at all times, K.O.-tism? Not on the side of SPK/PF(H) in any case.
The writings of illness by the SPK(H) and the PATIENTENFRONT (and also translations into the mostly used foreign languages) are published with KRRIM - PF-Verlag fuer Krankheit (KRRIM - PF-publisher pro illness, P.O.Box 12 10 41, D-68061 Mannheim) - from the original documents of the earliest days up to the philosophical-systematic expositions of HUBER (SPK/PF) WD, Dr.med. which were worked out in prison, in addition to various lectures at international congresses since 1976. In the meantime there exist altogether more than fifty publications and over 900 electronic publications in the most important world languages, publications and not only the few pamphlets the latters which Prof. von BAEYER once had tried to suffocate (see above, Aug. '69) by offering HUBER chances to become one time a type like him (President of World Association of Psychiatry and military psychiatrist and what else). Not to mention the administrative director of the clinical university institution who, some days before the start of SPK(H), had offered HUBER, officially but secretly, seven months' salaries in order to achieve that HUBER should stop his attacks and leave Heidelberg as soon as possible.
On the question:
what does KRANKHEIT IM RECHT mean "as regards content"
in everyday's doing, that is in pathopractice?
Protocol of actions in one week in February 1993,
done in the sense, never in the presence of Huber, thus in difference (?-) to the original SPK. Note: sense is radical, at the bottom of all doing and speaking radical, just like the reality of nowadays under the domination of the medical class is perhaps the utmost radicalism and totalitarism, nicknamed democracy. The rest is not sense, but useless and detrimental nonsense.
A quite arbitrarily chosen week from - at that time - 7 years KRANKHEIT IM
RECHT (contacts by phone, by mail and personally at KRANKHEIT IM RECHT):
|38-year-old man, inventor and specialized in electronics, heard "voices" coming out of his computer and therefore was persecuted by psychiatrists; he also was persecuted for his unusual political activities. We discuss the difference beween PATIENTS' FRONT (PF) and so-called self-help groups. The man emphasizes the PF is productive, saying what is to be done, in contrast to so-called leftists who only pretend to be against this, against that, criticizing, blah, blah, blah, and being passive. He wants to open a meeting point for people to start making his own KRANKHEIT IM RECHT.|
|36-year-old man, an industrial manager, who had been receiving therapy
for years (poisoned by medical drugs and interned, attempted "sui"cide
caused by doctors);
a) he wants to start a practical training at KRANKHEIT IM RECHT and brings friends to learn from KRANKHEIT IM RECHT so they may continue this work on their own.
b) we also arrange for a man he met at the State Mental Hospital to accompany him to court as his counselor-in-sickness (Beistand im Krankheitswesen). He was charged a veterinarian's bill because his dog bit another dog.
|3.||A woman questions us because of candlelight processions against Nazis. At KRANKHEIT IM RECHT each and every day we have no superficial attacks on Nazism but each and every day attack its ideological basis and fundamental principles as provided by men of medicine. The difference between Nazis and fascists is made clear.|
|45-year-old man, skull-brain-injury as a result of a work accident: since 15 (!) years the medical expert who has to decide on his pension, is playing tricks on him and refuses to write the report. Actual problem: the man is being harassed by the Federal Railway: first they gave him the wrong ticket, then charged him for 'riding without paying' the difference for the right one. KRANKHEIT IM RECHT helps him express his protest and together we start some counterattacks: a seventeen-page complaint and criminal charge against the rail officers for being "deliberately misleading the authorities", "squandering tax money" and "persecution of innocent people". This patient is not willing to give in and meanwhile the rail authorities would prefer to never have started the affair.|
|37-year-old man, just divorced, independent trade. For years he has been menaced by lawyers and courts to return tools he never received. By agitation and thus initiation of the active side of sickness, he is able to overcome his fear of courts and can therefore appear at court on his own. A counselor-in-sickness (Beistand im Krankheitswesen) from KRANKHEIT IM RECHT is with him at the court in the public room in case he needs support: he wins the case.|
|29-year-old woman, locked up in a State Mental Hospital because she argued with her parents. Her fiancé makes use of legal documents developed and proven by KRANKHEIT IM RECHT [giving a legal status to people, when supporting others in the confrontation with doctors: counselor-in-sickness, authorized representative (Beistandsvollmacht, see PATIENTENSTIMME No 3)]; he forces the doctors by way of a juridical achieved temporary injunction to lift the ban on his visiting her. She was in actual danger of "suicide" because of the isolation imposed on her by the women doctors. Political background: some women doctors at the State Mental Hospital made use of psychiatry in the service of "feminist politics". The fiancé wants to establish KRANKHEIT IM RECHT in the village he lives and starts to move closer to the theory and practice of the PATIENTENFRONT.|
|75-year-old man, former police officer and janitor at a children's home. The question to be discussed: shall he send the bailiff to get money owed to him, only to take revenge and punish his debtor? Background of the discussion: scarcity is produced by the doctors and therefore it is all against all, the oppressed against the oppressed as well. The point however is to attack the "real" enemy.|
|39-year-old man, computer specialist. After reading a (somehow left) students' text written about the Socialist Patients' Collective, he finds himself exhausted. He understands his physical reaction as a protest against the student's stupidity bred at the university. Because of that the students are not able to crack even one single significant of the rulership (Herrschaftssignifikant), are not ableto destroy even one single chain built out of the ruling language in everyone's mind. On the contrary, this is collaboration with ideological imperialism directed against everyone's mind (Hirnimperialismus) which has effects on the body as well (exhaustion, headaches, stomach aches, weariness).|
|32-year-old woman, graduate student studying for a doctorate. She comes to us because of problems with her eyes, because a dentist refuses to treat her and sends her to a psychiatrist, and because she quarrels with her professor and is always defeated by him in controversial discussions. She wants to turn her reactionary response to problems into an attack and to stir up (agitate, set in motion) the active side of her sickness.|
|10.||30-year-old student, single parent of two children. He is writing about SPK for his university exam. He is under pressure for lack of time and money and has problems with the great deal of information about the SPK/PF(H), and many things he simply has not known yet. We discuss how to help him and how to make his work easier.|
|11.||Postman: questions about candlelight processions and Nazism in everyday life.|
|50-year-old teacher, suffering from malaria effects after working abroad. She wants to join KRANKHEIT IM RECHT immediately. Confronted with the solutions and the underlying problems she is shocked at the power of sickness, at is reactionary, as well as at its revolutionary side. Consequence: she familiarizes herself first with the basic principles of SPK/PF(H), the concept of illness.|
|40-year-old woman. Every two weeks she is forced to take an injection of nerve poison medicine: if she refuses, she is threatened with being sent back to the State Mental Hospital. In reading the new SPK/PF/Huber book "Ueber das Anfangen" (On Beginning / How to Begin) she is glad to learn she is still able to read and comprehend in spite of the psychopharmaca bombardment against her. By reading this book she got moving and started organizing within a church's self-help group, which now has started attacking doctors.|
|14.||57-year-old patient from abroad, who has been in contact with us for many years. Her conduct in an actual confrontation makes us describe what she does as an provocative intrigue and collaboration with the Fuehrer of a self-help group, an exploiter of patients. She breaks contact with us.|
|15.||We support someone who is under the tax inspector's investigation.|
|16.||We cause a man in the midst of a divorce to take care he can be reached by mail to further on his divorce. His problems with alcohol are meanwhile resolved.|
|We advise a lawyer that the right to see court's files of course exists for patients, too. Our aim: to fend off the invective of an ignorant judge, who was totally terrified because a woman patient came to see her. In the judge's opinion, the lawyer should have stopped this terrifying event and prevent the patient from seeing the judge. Yes, it still happens that people who demand their rights are rejected, just by experts of law who ought to know this is a punishable offense (criminal justice).|
|18.||We agree with a "left" book shop that they make a stand with SPK/PF(H) books during a meeting of left social crawlers (social workers). The bookstore employs tricks and sabotage to protect the social crawlers&Lefties from being attacked. Still open bill.|
|19.||A patient with whom we had agreed to split (no further cooperation was possible because she confused friend and enemy) sends other patients to KRANKHEIT IM RECHT. Previously we had collectively organized her release from the State Mental Hospial; her housing and work, and a problem with alcohol in her circle of friends had been tackled.|
|To someone from the "patients' protection association" we explain the difference between SPK, PATIENTENFRONT and SPK/PF(H) on the one hand and run-away-houses refuges, the patients' protection clubs, self-help groups etc. on the other hand. We are the only pro-sickness-organization. Difference between HUBER (SPK/PF) and a physician, what HUBER himself by his own decision not continues to be. No further questions.|
|21.||Questions answered concerning water rights in Southern Europe.|
|Debate with an expert historian about the new SPK/PF/Huber book Ueber das Anfangen (On Beginning / How to Begin). His conclusion: after reading this book I now know I was mislead by false interpretations by leftists, considering the student movement of the sixties and the SPK to be identical or parallel; now I see that SPK/PF(H) and the student movement is out of all proportion.|
|49-year-old woman with marital problems. Persecuted by the neighbors of her little village giving her to understand that she soon will be imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital. Attempted suicide with a hair dryer in her bathtub. We inform her that from an astropathic view (i.e. so-called astrology under the revolutionary concept of sickness) the village where she lives is under a sign and has the tendency that everyone living there tends to exaggerate everyday's events and to charge emotionally these little events very much. This pathopractic advice (i.e. practical doing based on the revolutionary concept of sickness) enables her to cope better with her neighbors' hostility. A temporary move helps her overcome the crisis.|
|In contrast to the medical results of a clinic, we determine by means of astropathy that it is not the aggravation of what the doctors diagnosed as "cancer" from which an 85-year-old patient suffers, causing him trouble in breathing (no, it was not head of state Honecker from Ex-DDR!). Background: Doctors had pressed the patient to be shot with a series of X-rays, as usual.|
|25.||We receive a call from a patient in a hospital far away who wants support against the medical terror of imprisonment and injections.|
Sporadically we also assist children and grandchildren to get along with the effects of medical treatment, troubles at school and in apprenticeship, and with authorities, foreign language correspondence with pen pals etc.
Note: This is not an advertisement. Those who do not like it, should stay away. Anyway we regularily pay the price. Also in form of money.
Case work? Street work? Borderline cases? No, by no means:
From its beginnings until now and in future SPK/PF(H) has striven and strives to promote practical changes in all persons, things and relations, which it happens to contact. In this opinion neither book-writing, nor artistic or any other performances are of any use before the named changes with which they deal have been made producing results in practice and experience. Also they suggest, that revolutionary work, as described on the preceding pages produces not only better sickness, better hormons and better endorphines but better states of ecstasy and immunity, than best foods & drugs can do. Some years ago they concluded, that their revolutionary goal is reached: their reality becoming permanently cleaned from doctoral and nazist influences, replaced by what they call the conditio of utopathy.
If your wishes also tend to practical change look at your environment and do it yourself.
Post script (HUBER):
Up to now I have not read one single word of the judicial or medical
sentences against me. What I got thereabout, mainly from left wing but also from
other publications doesn't deal at any rate about illness as it was my doing and
my thinking from all of the beginning of the here mentioned contexts. Thus:
no concern to illness, bullshit.
I experienced from those publishers for example that we were sentenced
because of "gezieltes revolutionäres Handeln" (nota benissime!). As you
can see in this formula there lacks completely the word illness, both as basic
matter and as the aim. They substituted it by the "verfassungsmaeßige Ordnung
der Bundesrepublik", the latter which also lacks the word illness. Thus:
no concern to illness, bullshit.
I also remember from those publications, that I now was, told in my own
words, a chief gangster, a manager of explosives and a falsificator of
passports. Right or wrong and besides of all modesty to be expected I until now
confess that I every time did all I could to forward and to protect illness and
all what there was involved collectively and by matter. But the named terms,
from which I myself like to make use if there is occasion to do, also lack any
hint to illness. Thus:
no concern to illness, bullshit.
Of course there arose from illness our crime guerilla- and even our magic sex workshops (Arbeitskreise über Stadtguerilla, Sexualitaet, etc.), revolutionary ones, because not at all therapeutic, not at all medically recommendable, not to mention the hygienic view. But it seems that those publishers while writing about us mostly were practicing spirit- and dope workshops, arising from what is medically licensed and even recommended. And because there was a tremendous lack of dope and spirits in SPK(H), because those things didn't fit at all to our Krankheitsbegriff, sex & crime - as linked to illness until nowadays - yet remain to be without concern to illness, remain to be bullshit.
It is true that even the US army and the NATO-German army of course had sent representatives to the crises staffs when the persecutional investigations had started. Attracted by illness as it was in the phototechnical workshop or by other fetishes, more familiar to them than illness? In deeds scarcely (wohl kaum!). For they withdrew as soon as possible, as I remember from the notes of some of the afore-mentioned publishers. Thus: no concern to illness, bullshit, regarding illness and regarding all our doings and thinkings about it up to nowadays.
To whom who published or publishes on SPK, in the last five paragraphs is provided a test to find out how deeply he himself or she herself is still involved in the bullshit or if he or she is already fairly up to date, thanks to SPK(H), two decades thereafter.
