Hitler says that if you cannot create war then at least continue to propagate the idea that war is coming. Never leave people in peace, because when they are in peace, you are nobody. They don’t need you; your very purpose is not there. They need you when there is danger. Create danger. If there is not real danger, at least create the climate of a false danger.
The American fear of the Russians, the Russian fear of the Americans – it is nothing but a game of the politicians. People themselves are exactly the same all over the world – they don’t want to be killed in wars and they don’t want to kill others in wars. But the politician cannot exist without wars. Hence I call it the dirtiest game – because it depends on human blood, the bloodshed of millions of innocent people.
When I say no government is the best government I know perfectly well that perhaps it will not ever be possible. But it is better to have dreams that are impossible but are of some higher consciousness, of beauty, love. Perhaps if the idea goes on existing, some day we may come close to it. We may not be able to achieve it in its totality – hence I say, the closest to no government is one government, which is not impossible. And after one government, no government becomes very possible.
Try to understand the idea. When I say one government, then politics loses much juice. When there are so many presidents in the world and so many prime ministers and kings and queens, and everybody is trying to prove himself the greatest, the game has some juice. When there is one government then it becomes functional; there is nobody against it.
The whole joy of politics is in “the enemy.” When there is no enemy, then you are just working like the Red Cross Society or the organization of post offices or railways or airplanes. Do you know who is the head of the organization that runs the railway trains in America? There is no need, he is just a functional head.
And when there is one government we can make it a Rotary Club. There is no need for anybody to remain a president for four or five years. A few weeks will be enough; enjoy four weeks and then rotate. There is no problem in it. So every part of the world is represented; sometimes their person is the president. But by the time the world comes to know, he is no longer the president. And when it is a Rotary Club people lose that desire, the will to power.
One government means that nations disappear.
In fact there is no validity for nations; they are simply a calamity.
In Ethiopia people are dying of starvation; in Europe they are throwing foodstuff into the ocean because they have so much that if they continue to keep it then prices in the market will go down; and prices have to be kept going up. The only way is to get rid of it. So much is being thrown away that just to throw it in the ocean one hundred thousand dollars are needed – just for the labor of throwing it into the ocean.
