Talk #7 of the Series, Communism and Zen Fire, Zen Wind


"First, a little bit of news.

"The first failure of Comrade Gorbachev:

"The central committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union has declared that Gorbachev's first act of reform, to eradicate alcoholism, has failed. The party declared that Gorbachev's radical changes have not yet been achieved; on the contrary, the sale of illicit liquor has grown, state liquor revenues have fallen, and the masses have been constantly complaining about long queues to buy vodka.


"Over the past year Comrade Gorbachev has allowed the following symbols of capitalism to do business in Russia: Coca-Cola, MacDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Fast Food Pizza.

"This is all junk that America wants to pour on the very innocent people of the Soviet Union.


"Just today he has allowed the world's largest advertising agency, Saatchi and Saatchi, to begin advertising campaigns in Russia for western goods."

Osho continues:
"Saatchi's, who are advertising agents for Margaret Thatcher, said they would also like a contract 'to polish Gorbachev's image, although he does not really need it at the moment.'

"On the one hand, he is saying that Russia's economy is failing, and on the other hand, he is giving contracts to advertising companies to advertise western goods in Russia. Do you see the contradiction?

"The latest data about the economy of Russia is that twenty percent of the people are living below an adequate nourishment level. But in America, fourteen percent of the people are below this level – the difference is only six percent. For just six percent, if communism has to be thrown out and American capitalism has to be brought in, it is a total tragedy. Six percent of the people can be helped without bringing American capitalism in.

"There was no need to declare to the world that they are no longer making nuclear weapons. There was no need to tell the world that they are cutting their military budgets and armies. They should have done it silently, and raised the level of those six percent without any problem! It is so simple, but Gorbachev is going about things absolutely irrationally. He is throwing out the baby with the wash water!

"His effort is absolutely against the Soviet Union, and this first failure of his policy will not be the only failure. This is the beginning of the end. All his policies are going to fail because all his policies are against basic fundamentals of communism. And one man cannot undo seventy years' sacrifice of millions of people who have created communism – the first experiment in human history to bring a classless society into existence.

"Now the questions.

"The first question:
According to your vision, what exactly is communism?
"Communism simply means moving private property into the hands of the collective – because private ownership of property creates classes, the oppressed and the oppressors. Money brings more money, attracts more money; poverty attracts more poverty. And a man who sees all around him people having money, beautiful houses, cars, and he has not even food to eathis dignity as a human being is destroyed."
