That’s why politicians go on talking-- so that you are not in any way helped to be aware of what are doing. They distract by their talk. They don’t communicate, they don’t say much. In fact, they want to hide so that things are not known. They talk about peace and they all prepare for war. They talk about love and they all create hatred in the world.
But they are tricky, very diplomatic. When they say, “Love your country,” they are saying, “Hate your neighbors, “But they hide their hatred in the love of the country, when you say, “Love your motherland, “nobody is going to raise any question about it. There is no question: everybody has to love his motherland. But deep down in the teaching of the love of the motherland, they are preparing you for war. Then you start hating the neighbours: they don’t belong to your nation; they don’t belong to your religion. Love your religion --then what will you do with people who don’t belong to your religion?
Of course, it has to be understood that you will hate them. If you love your religion, you will hate other religions; if you live your country, you will hate other countries; if you love your colour, you will hate people who are of different colour. If you really want to live human beings you have to stop loving the country, you have to stop loving the religion. You have to stop loving your colour. If you really want to love human beings, you have to stop all political nonsense.
But they are very tricky – diplomatic. They talk about love and they sow the seeds of hatred, they talk about non-violence and they prepare you for violence. They say they are preparing for war because without war, peace will be impossible. And they have talk such nonsense for so long that you don’t even understand how contradictory they are. Then the whole humanity keeps moving in darkness.
