Now, Margaret Hill, the former mayor of Antelope, said to prove your sincerity you should instruct the Rajneesh city council to repeal the city’s charter this year. Do you intend to do that?
No, because she is just asking an absurdity. If we are friends, why should we destroy a city? We will change the name of the city back to Antelope, but the city remains. We are not enemies, and we will hand over the city to the people from whom we had got it. Then it is up to them if they want to repeal, decompose – that is up to them. That is not our business, and it would not be an act of friendship.
You’ve always maintained that you’re simply a guest here in Rajneeshpuram.
Since the weekend of September 14th, 15th, is that still the case now?
I will always be a guest.
Are you at all involved administratively or politically at Rajneeshpuram?
No, not at all.
But some of the statements that you’ve made during the past two weeks would indicate that you were involved during the time Sheela was here. You’ve indicated that Sheela consulted you about the plans for the Share-a-Home program, and you told her it was perfectly good to start the program “If money was available.” Is that an accurate quote?
