PEOPLE ARE GETTING VERY WORRIED ABOUT THE POLITICAL SITUATION WITH ATOMIC
THREATS, NUCLEAR WAR THREATS, THE ENVIRONMENT, AND POLLUTION, THINGS LIKE THAT,
WHICH IS NOT THE SAME SACRIFICE FROM FATHER TO SON THAT WE'RE NOW TALKING
I understand. It is just superficially different. Basically it is the same. The
question of nuclear weapons should not be thought as a future problem, it is in
the present moment. So I'm not saying that you have to think about future. It
is a living reality. We are living surrounded by nuclear weapons.
So do whatsoever you want to do right now.
But your pacifists are thinking about the future -- that there should not be a
third world war, that nuclear weapons should not be created. Stupid. Again, you
are destroying the present moment. And the people who are creating nuclear
weapons, their logic is not different from yours: they are also preparing for
the future, for the future of their people, for the future of their nation.
They don't want to be weak, they want to be stronger, they want to remain in a
position so that nobody can invade them. The war mongers are thinking of
future, and the pacifists are thinking of the future. I'm neither a pacifist
nor a supporter of war.
I'm saying, let these idiots fight with each other and humanity should live
this moment as joyously as possible. If we can manage to live in this moment
peacefully, joyously, the third world war is not going to happen.
We have not done anything about third world war.
If people are happy, if people are enjoying, nobody can drag them into a war.
War is not a simple phenomenon, it is very complex.
People have to be miserable, people have to be in suffering, people have to be
sexually repressed. People have to be in every possible way humiliated: by
poverty, by hunger; only then you can manage and convince them to destroy each
other -- because they have nothing to live for.....
