described armoring in this way:

conference at Rangeley, Maine, that Reich had once said: "Trotsky was a good man but he was not aware enough of the workings of emotional plague.
"˜It was a wonderful, exciting time', remembered the vegetotherapist Morton Herskowitz
"˜There was a joie de vivre there.
We felt like we were in the front ranks of people who were going to make a change.'"
The chapter includes an extensive quotation from Dr. Morton Herskowitz

goes on for many paragraphs:

political naivetÃ©, I was aware at the beginning of the trial that if he
persisted in this he
was going to lose.

continued to stand.
