Osho examines the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations, created in part as a response to the nightmare of Nazi Germany that led to the Second World War-and declares it to be little more than an expression of the hypocrisy of a barbarous society. When Osho takes on issues of social or political relevance, one can expect to be confronted with something that disturbs the cozy belief systems and self-righteous convictions that support the notion that, as civilized human beings, of course we know what is right and what is wrong. Others find it offensive that a "spiritual" person would even venture into a conversation about politics or social issues. But Osho is a man of his own category, and has said: "I look at life in its totality, and that total vision is what I call spirituality. Politics is one of the subjects, and so is mathematics, and human rights. Spirituality is not a single category; spirituality means life in its totality. Spirituality means knowing and living life in its totality.... I am neither a promoter nor a preacher. I want to shatter everyone's sleep. I want to shake people out of their unconsciousness, so they can see and think for themselves...of course, people become-angry if they are woken up, but I am happy with that - because it is the beginning of their awakening."
