The Ostrich Argument

Talk #10 of the Series, Beyond Psychology

"One has to understand that everything is relative, not ultimate; hence what appears to be good to one person may look evil to another. And there is no contradiction: both may be right. What is good depends on your preconceived ideas; so does evil.

"The British government thinks my entry even for an overnight stay in England, is not conducive to the public good. The same government is ready to allow American bombers, missiles, to use their bases, to destroy a small country like Libya, and to the government this seems to be conducive to public good.

"There is no inconsistency. In their eyes their society, their culture, their religion, their country has to be saved at any cost, because they think they stand for good – although the British government has tortured humanity more than any other government in the world."

Osho continues:
"For three hundred years it has been the greatest terrorist possible; it killed millions of people around the world, to create the greatest empire of history. This government is absolutely in tune with the American imperialistic ideology.

"Out of necessity it has been compelled to give freedom to the countries of its empire, but not willingly and joyously. Those countries had to fight for almost one century, without any arms. They were butchered, without any consideration of human values.

"I am reminded:

"In India, there happened an incident which can be considered one of the most inhuman in history. In Amritsar, the holy place of the Sikhs, they have a beautiful public garden, a vast area that can contain thousands of people for any gathering, meeting, discourse. And it has been used for that purpose. It has a very high wall so that no traffic noise comes in, and it has only one door, so small that only one person can come out or go in; two persons together cannot pass through the door.

"They were having a silent meeting of thousands of people – children, women, old men. The prayer was, 'The British government should change its heart and should leave our country.' Now, it is not terrorism; they were simply praying for a change of heart.

"Colonel Dyer, who was in charge of the area, went there with his troops, fixed machine guns on the people and started firing – because it is revolution against the empire, this prayer that 'you should change your heart'!

"There was only one door, and from that door they were shooting bullets at random, with no discrimination – children, women, old men. And nobody could escape from there because of the high wall.

"Dyer killed the whole crowd; not a single human being came out of that door alive. Now, it was their country; the British had been terrorists, had been ruling their country, exploiting their country.

"India has been rich, known for thousands of years as 'a golden bird' – that's how Pythagoras describes it, that's how Alexander the Great describes it. So many invadersbut still India seemed to be inexhaustibly rich. People would come, invade the country, take away their treasures, take over their beautiful women."
