And unfortunately his famous newspaper is called Die Welt; in English this means “The World.” And for exactly that purpose Hasya had gone there – to save the world from the destructive politicians all around, all over the world.
Right now there are five nations with nuclear weapons; by the end of this century there will be twenty-five members in the nuclear club. Every day the possibility of saving the world becomes less and less. He should immediately resign from his newspaper. He does not deserve to be the chief of a newspaper called “The World.”
And he also seems stupid in saying, “I will protect my fatherland.” Only German stupidity calls their country “the fatherland.” The whole world calls their country “motherland,” because every child is born out of the mother, not out of the father. The earth is our mother – that seems to be a more symbolic and sensible proclamation than to call one’s country “the fatherland.” That is male chauvinistic. He is neither a Christian nor a gentleman, and he is the chief editor of the famous German newspaper, “The World.”
I am going to send Hasya again: go directly to the chief editor, and if he hits the table, hit on his head! He is fast asleep, he needs to be awakened.
These are the people who are going to destroy the world. He talks about protecting his fatherland and the whole purpose of the World Academy is to bring you to your senses that now nations are out of date – it is either the whole of humanity or no humanity. The alternative is absolute and categorical: either we can protect all…but then we have to drop our old prejudices.
What is it to be an Indian, or to be English, or to be German, except a prejudice? – protecting prejudices, protecting your darkness that you have inherited from the past. These are the people who are going to destroy the world. Humanity in general has to be made aware that these people should not be in any position of power: they are fascists, hidden enemies of mankind.
I have particularly taken this issue because there is a German photographer here, who is going to take the message to Germany. But anyway, whether he takes the message or not, Hasya as my international secretary is going to hit this son-of-a-bitch who thinks he is a Christian!
And all my sannyasins who are German should remember: it is their duty, their responsibility, to go around to such people and force them to change their minds. Now there is no Germany and there is no India and no China – and there is no need of any nation. That is the only possible way we can save this beautiful planet. Otherwise politicians are determined to bring a Third World War.
The name of his newspaper reminded me of the name of President Truman. He was responsible for dropping atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and his name was “true man.” Couldn’t America find an un-true man to destroy more than two hundred thousand people within three minutes?
