Chapter 25: The Value of Freedom

But I will prepare them - and they are preparing. It has been a good experience for them, so that it should not happen again - they should not be political, but they should be aware that they are not being politically cheated, that somebody does not become political on their account and take advantage of them. It will not happen now. I will prepare them for it too, that they should keep an eye open.
Decentralization of power into many people’s hands will be one of the basic things.

It is their life and nobody should become so powerful that he starts interfering. Now, it is against human freedom to tape somebody’s phone, to bug somebody’s room - it is inhuman and ugly. And that too, of people who love you, who are not against you - there are no political parties here.
But people do that, we know they do that. Were you surprised?
No, I am not surprised. I am never surprised because I know human mind so clearly. It can do any stupid thing - there is no need to be surprised.

I will be doing it. It will be prevented - it won’t happen again.
Decentralization of power is one way - other ways of.?
