What would you say to the governments of the countries that have rejected your presence under the illusion of being politically and economically independent from America, when in fact we know things are to the contrary? Maybe some of these governments have been effectively deceived and would look into what is really happening and see how they are being used for America’s abominable crime against wisdom.
Humanity has lived only under the illusion of freedom – there is no such thing as far as the history of man up to now is concerned. Slaveries have changed; new forms of slaveries have taken their place – but freedom has not happened. Freedom is still a dream. There was a time that man was being sold in the markets just like any other thing. We thought that was slavery, and it took thousands of years to get rid of it – but we could only get rid of the form. The content remained.
Now, you don’t purchase a man for his whole life. You purchase him as a servant for five hours a day or six hours a day. And it seems that it is freedom – in fact it has been useful to the owners. To purchase a man completely…you cannot use him twenty-four hours a day. He will be working only those five to six hours. The remaining time you will have paid unnecessarily: sometimes he will be sick, and some day he will become old. And he can die in an accident and your whole investment is lost.
So the change of slavery has not helped humanity but has helped only the owners – the slaves are still slaves, part-time slaves.
There has been political dependence all over the world. Those empires have collapsed and that has given a great illusion to nations, that now they have freedom. And whenever some illusion is beautiful you want it to be true, you want to believe in it; but whether you believe in it or not, an illusion is an illusion – it makes no difference.
I have seen in this world tour that great nations which are proud of their independence are simply living in an illusion – and they are not deceiving anybody else but themselves.
I have never been in Germany. I have done no harm to anybody. I have not broken any law of Germany – and their government decides that I cannot enter Germany.
And the pressure is American because after the Second World War half of Germany remained with the Soviet Union. It was under the armies of the Soviet Union, and they never left it. So it looks like half of Germany has remained dependent while the other half, which was under the American forces, has been given – on the surface – political freedom, democracy. But Germany remains the biggest military base of America in Europe.
And billions of dollars are being poured into nations which they can never repay. And America never wants them to be able to repay it, so that they are burdened, under economic pressure. And America has promised them billions of dollars more in the coming years. Their whole economy is now in the hands of America and this is a far more dangerous slavery than political slavery used to be.
