Im Jahr 1984 wurde die dritte Kopie vom letzten überlebenden Wissenschaftler, Dr. Andrzej M. Łobaczewski, aus dem Gedächtnis niedergeschrieben. Zbigniew Brzeziński verhinderte die Veröffentlichung dieser Kopie.
Nachdem das Buch ein halbes Jahrhundert lang unterdrückt wurde, ist es nun endlich verfügbar.
Politische Ponerologie ist in seiner klinischen und nüchternen Beschreibung des Wesens des Bösen schockierend. In seinen literarischen Textstellen ist es aber auch ergreifend, wenn der Autor die immensen Leiden jener Wissenschaftler beschreibt, die von der Krankheit, die sie untersuchten, angesteckt oder gar von ihr vernichtet wurden.
Politische Ponerologie analysiert Gründer und Unterstützer von politisch unterdrückenden Regierungen. Łobaczewski untersucht Faktoren, die zusammenwirken, wenn Menschen sich gegenseitig unmenschlich behandeln. ethical und Menschlichkeit können den Raubzügen des Bösen nicht lange standhalten. Das einzige Mittel gegen das Böse und seine hinterlistige Vorgehensweise einzelnen Menschen und Gruppen gegenüber ist das Wissen um seine Existenz und sein Wesen.

Investigating this updating skill has been the most thrust of study on intentional forgetting, in particular these experiences at the directed forgetting phenomenon. Cognitive experiments on directed forgetting have proven that we can deal extra successfully with quite a lot of info by way of following directions to regard the various details as "to be forgotten." during this method, interference is diminished and we will commit all of our assets to the remainder to-be-remembered info. The mechanisms that result in this relief proceed to advertise new experiments, yet over 1 / 4 century of analysis continues that the directed forgetting influence is robust.
