Chapter 3 ♦ Conditioning
The greatest slavery is that of the child.
Does a child not have as much right to privacy and freedom from parental conditioning as the parents expect for themselves? It is one of the most fundamental problems facing humanity today. The future depends on how we solve it. It has never been encountered before. For the first time man has come of age, a certain maturity has happened - and as you become mature you have to face new problems.
The Greatest Challenge: the Golden Future
This small book, The Greatest Challenge: the Golden Future, is unashamedly addressed to the intelligent people of this threatened planet. It is a response to the report of the United Nations from the World Commission on Environment and Development, Our Common Future, which identifies the major issues threatening the future of this planet.
This book presents another facet of the Osho vision, a proposal for a viable humanity; a diagnosis of the psychological and social sicknesses that divide human beings, within and without, into warring factions. It outlines the critical steps required if there is...
Origins of Life
Life in the Milky Way galaxy began between 13.6 billion to 10 billion years ago. All the constituent and necessary elements for creating life are produced during supernova, and are dispersed to nebular clouds which act as cradles of life.
The molecules are incubated within nebular clouds, creating complex organic molecules, left-handed amino acids, proteins, nucleotides, and DNA. These chemical compounds were mixed together, provided protection, nutrients and energy, over billions of years of time, in over a trillion different locations, such that by 10 billion years ago in this galaxy, carbon-DNA-based replicons had been fashioned which evolved...
The Perfect State
Over and over again in the West, the message goes out that the parents must be allowed to decide the fate of their children:
What beliefs to give them,
To what school to send them,
What values to instil in them,
How to discipline them.
It is regarded as outrageous that the State should interfere.
But look at what's happening in the East, in China. … Chinese parents have internalized the values of the State and … realized the imperative of maximizing their children's talents. The phenomenon of the "Tiger Mother"
Illumination: the Secret Religion - How to Become God
Hyperborea - the land of the Illuminati
“Neither by land nor by sea shalt thou find the road to the Hyperboreans.”(Pindar, Illuminatus)
Hyperborea: the perpetually illuminated paradise beyond the north wind where Apollo, god of Reason, spent his winters. Illumination, the religion of the Illuminati, is the world's only rational, mathematical, scientific and philosophical religion. We condemn all religions of faith, superstition and irrationality. We condemn the slave religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam that worship a Torture God who orders fathers to kill their children and revels in sending those who disobey him to...
Channelling a One World Government
The reverse side of the Great Sealof the United States (1776) Under Construction
Look around and you see a world in increasing distress. Conventional modes of politics and the nation state are showing unmistakable signs of strain. It seems civilisation is facing an internecine struggle against confronting new realities. Many communities are being afflicted by various crises as the world transitions through tumultuous channels of change.
A chorus of calls to reform the world’s governance and economic systems have risen sharply in recent years, particularly since the onset of the Global Financial Crisis. From almost every corner of the...
Life Beyond Matter
Astrophysicist Paul Davies at Arizona State University suggests that advanced technology might not even be made of matter. That it might have no fixed size or shape; have no well-defined boundaries. Is dynamical on all scales of space and time. Or, conversely, does not appear to do anything at all that we can discern. Does not consist of discrete, separate things; but rather it is a system, or a subtle higher-level correlation of things.
Are matter and information, Davies asks, all there is? Five hundred years ago, Davies writes, "the very concept of a device manipulating information, or software...
Human Rights (not Children's Rights)
Human rights are moral principles that set out certain standards of human behaviour, and are regularly protected as legal rights in national and international law. They are “commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being.” Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone). – Wikipedia
The dog that didn't bark
Does a child have a right to privacy and freedom from parental conditioning?
It is one of the most fundamental problems facing humanity today.
The future depends on how we solve it. It has never been encountered before.
Only recently … have we become aware that the greatest slavery is that of the child.
It was never thought of before;It is not mentioned in any scripture of the world. — Osho

Why Violence? This document offers a comprehensive explanation of why human beings are violent.
It took me 41 years to learn the central insight that generated this document, now in its 9th edition.
It is the primary outcome of 14 years of deep psychological investigation undertaken, while living in seclusion, by my soulmate and research colleague, Anita McKone, and myself from 1996 until 2010.
Anita’s website, which includes her explanation of our process during this period – ‘Fearless Psychology and Fearful Psychology’ – and her songs of nonviolence, can be viewed here: AM.
Children's rights are the human rights of children with particular attention to the rights of special protection and care afforded to the young, including their right to association with both biological parents, human identity as well as the basic needs for food, universal state-paid education, health care and criminal laws appropriate for the age and development of the child. Interpretations of children's rights range from allowing children the capacity for autonomous action to the enforcement of children being physically, mentally and emotionally free from abuse, though what constitutes "abuse" is a matter of debate. Other definitions include the...
Human Advancement Program
Our civilization is in a critical phase of development and this century could be the best or the worst ever. More than fifty global systemic risks and an endless row of social problems may reach tipping points and create cascading effects that may have major implications on the world’s population.
When hundreds of social problems can be observed in every country on earth, which occupy a large part of the GDP, we can be certain that there exists a system error. The author claims that lack of individual and collective wisdom must be the cause of this system...
Our Children: A major part of the "END GAME"
Bill Gates has had disturbing results in his past efforts to provide Services for Children. Now he wants to revolutionize Children's Education!
… these combined grants set up public-private ed-tech infrastructures for “social distance” learning networks to be AI data-mined by Chinese-style “Social Credit” algorithms which score students’ cognitive-behavioral, socio-emotional, and biological health metrics to determine the students’ access to education, employment, healthcare, housing, transportation, and even due process.
The Pre-Political Child of Child-Centered Jurisprudence
Childhood, the category that holds, defines, and governs children, is a social construct that is contingent upon time and place. There is some universality in the vulnerability and dependency of young children, but the length, contours, and extent of that dependency, as well as the assignment of children to dependency, vary greatly across time, nation, and geography. The present construction of children in the United States as dependent – and dependency as private, familial, and developmental – naturalizes childhood and the roles children perform as a class, within racial, ethnic, national, age, gender, and...
Children’s Freedom: A Human Rights Perspective
For most people, human rights have increased—but for children they have shrunk.We’ve made progress in many realms of civil rights over the past decades in the U.S. The rights of African Americans, women, gays and lesbians, and handicapped people have expanded, thanks in part to deliberate civil rights movements, in which significant numbers of people demanded rights for these groups. But the rights of children have shrunk.
Rights and Obligations of Parents
Historically, philosophers have had relatively little to say about the family. This is somewhat surprising, given the pervasive presence and influence of the family upon both individuals and social life. Most philosophers who have addressed issues related to the parent-child relationship—Kant and Aristotle, for example—have done so in a fairly terse manner. At the end of the twentieth century, this changed. Contemporary philosophers have begun to explore, in a substantial way, a range of issues connected with the rights and obligations of parents.
The Case for Children’s Liberation
Source: Prof. John McMurtry
Perhaps our oldest and most significant blindness has been towards those of our species classed as children. Man is generally slow to take notice of his accustomed brutalities to the helpless – whether animals, slaves, women, or the poor – and children are least of all an exception. Some dramatic examples illustrate this. Over the years young people have been legally and regularly suffocated, starved, exposed on dung heaps, beaten to death, imprisoned, sold as slaves, abandoned, terrorized, bound and gagged, neglected to disease, relentlessly insulted, and, simply, treated like the chattel...

Source: Children’s Liberation
Throughout history women have been considered inferior to men and hence subject to their domination. People of colour have been considered inferior to white people and hence subject to their domination. Gay people have been considered ‘perverted’ and ‘unnatural’ and hence subject to punishment. As a result there have arisen the women’s liberation movement, the civil rights movement and the gay liberation movement. These are all positive developments. They have achieved some success and I hope they will achieve much more.But where is the children’s liberation movement?
Liberation, not procreation
Even within the vegan and animal liberation communities, principles surrounding family and fertility are not held consistently across species. To remain ideologically and, more importantly, ethically consistent, those who promote total liberation for all animals should not bear children. This can be accomplished either by remaining child free or by choosing to foster or adopt already-born children. The key arguments for childbearing as a valued step in the process of childrearing replicates several ethical and ideological imperatives against which animal liberation advocates argue. It supports biological arguments of superiority, creates unjustified boundaries to delineate hierarchies, values...
The War on Children
by Stuart Jeanne Bramhall
My next two posts relate to the unspeakable trauma Americans experience as children.
The first film concerns the transformation of American schools into virtual prisons.
The second discusses the deliberate targeting of children by corporate advertising.
In both cases, parents are largely helpless to protect their kids. The scars created carry into adulthood.
"Having" Children: The Choice Between Procreation and Adoption
Over the last two decades, there has been increasing engagement in western analytic philosophy with ethical issues of family-making. Philosophers have asked whether procreation is permissible, whether there is a duty to adopt rather than procreate, and how we might radically reconceive parenthood. Importantly, these discussions are influenced by complex socio-political factors and provide conceptual foundations for potential government action. The debates are becoming more nuanced – and the need for them, in an era of pandemic and increasing public awareness of racial justice movements and environmental crises, is only growing more...
