Politics – Osho

Anybody who can be a good pretender, a hypocrite, will become your
leader politically, will become your priest religiously. All that he
needs is hypocrisy, all that he needs is cunningness, all that he
needs is a facade to hide behind. Your politicians live double lives,
your priests live double lives–one from the front door, the other
from the back door. And the back-door life is their real life. Those
front-door smiles are just false, those faces looking so innocent are
just cultivated. If you want to see the reality of the politician you
will have to see him from his back door. There he is in his nudity, as
he is, and so is the priest. These two kinds of cunning people have
dominated humanity. And they found out very early on that if you want
to dominate humanity, make it weak, make it feel guilty, make it feel
unworthy. Destroy its dignity, take all glory away from it, humiliate
it. And they have found such subtle ways of humiliation that they
don’t come in the picture at all; they leave it to you to humiliate
yourself, to destroy yourself. They have taught you a kind of slow
suicide.
