bunsNbrews

I mean this guy didn’t speak for years at one point. Watch Wild Wild Country on Netflix.


BodheeNYC

Because he was all drugged out.butbi guess sometimes drugs give you better insight like "the people are retarded".


bunsNbrews

Hahaha yeah he was indeed probably pretty doped up here you are right.


Okmanl

Yeah, after the drug abuse his speech slowed down a lot. I think this is the period where he was in his prime. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImsyUqeqbT4](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImsyUqeqbT4) ​ Overall though I'd rank Charles Manson higher on the cult leader tier list in terms of charisma and the eloquence of his speech. I'd say Osho is definitely more educated though and has more interesting things to say, since he pulls a lot of his teachings from Daoism, Budhism, Hinduism etc... Whereas Manson was illiterate his entire life. (manson example below) [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIfGj\_55FHI](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIfGj_55FHI)


NikolaTes

Bagwan had waaaay more followers, an airport, his own police force, and a small city.


monkeychasedweasel

He almost captured political control of an entire county in Oregon.


simiamor

And that is exactly why higher authorities had to get involved and use dirty tactics like handcuffing and parading like criminal on live tv to legitimize prosecution, but in the end they could only force him to deport somehow. He actually had lot of respect for freedom laws of particularly America, and didn't actively try to break them.


HAL9000000

And I think 93 Rolls Royce cars (this is not a joke, fyi. He literally had 93 Rolls Royces).


ablebodiedmango

And that was after he made an international following in India. His teachings weren’t just bullshit. Deep spiritual education and effective messaging at work.


doughboyhollow

And gangbangs


somanyroads

Yeah sorta...he still loved the big dramatic pauses, even then. But at least he was picking up the pace when he actually did speak 😂


EdwardFisherman

How the fuck was Manson illiterate but talked like that? Blows my mind. The guy is smart as shit, maybe he is the devil.


nomofica

It's precisely his charisma that makes him so dangerous. He demonstrated that perfectly when he said "here's why the girls liked me" and broke into song and dance. He knows he has a silver tongue.


Incarnadine_89

I dunno, he sounds like a bum to me. Definitely charismatic but I've heard homeless people speak the same way.


deanreevesii

Man, imagine how weird the alternate universe is where Hitler became a successful artist and Charles Manson succeeded at becoming one of The Beach Boys.

Trippytrickster

Well ya you use reddit.


AnnihilationOrchid

That's just simply not true. Most of these drug abuse claims just aren't backed up, just some random people who accused him without any proof. Just like because he was open to talk about sexuality, which is a common topic nowadays, people started calling him head of a "sex cult". I'll give you that he was some what of an opportunist because of the predatory nature of a generation with a void of access to information, and really pissed with the government, but these things tend to happen when people are deprived by social norm.


Stylose

Best doc. I couldn't believe I had never heard anything about that INSANE story.

I let loose a porcelain cracker once and I literally heard a packed pub toilet clear out near instantly, tbf it did smell like you'd just opened up a barrel that'd had a dead hooker in it for a few weeks somewhere sunny.

They were afraid of your raw power. I once unleashed my brown ropes of domination in a Pennsylvania truck stop bathroom, and faced the most intense battle of my life against this 340 pound trucker. The only reason I won was through sheer determination/lack of fiber, and his will broke. Thus, is the way of all shit wars.

AliFoxx9

Just to take over a small town so they can build whatever


Rogue42bdf

They already had the town, they were trying to get into the county government. Tried to make people sick so they couldn't go to the polls on election day.


Okmanl

I've watched a lot interview videos of Charles Manson and Osho. I'd say Manson is more charismatic and poetic with his words to the point that you can't get bored watching his 1 hr interviews. Whereas Osho borrows a lot of wisdom from stuff like Daoism, Budhism, Hinduism, so his speeches are more "educational" if that makes sense. However a lot of his videos do get boring after a while, but sometimes his speeches can be more poetic than Manson's. ​ I'd say these are the two best videos I've watched from both cult leaders. ​ [https://youtu.be/yxUw1jp1EZI?t=405](https://youtu.be/yxUw1jp1EZI?t=405) [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNBu5eSrtnA](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNBu5eSrtnA)


Reacher-Said-N0thing

I believe Osho was just grifting people and he knew it, whereas Manson really believed in all the crazy things he was saying.


Wellgoodmornin

Nah, I think Manson just wanted to do drugs and have lots of sex so he kept saying crazier and crazier shit to keep all the people following him. Then a group of them decided to act on his nonsense and ruined the good thing he thought he had going.


Thelonious_Cube

> Osho borrows a lot of wisdom from stuff like Daoism, Budhism, Hinduism, so his speeches are more "educational" if that makes sense. A friend of mine said "He's like a really good high school teacher for 'Eastern Wisdom' but has no new insights worth anything"


-DAngelOMG

The comment section with everyone praising Charles Manson is distributing but not in the least surprising


DiscipleofBeasts

Thank you. Been meaning to find a good osho interview after watching the Netflix doc and hadn’t done it yet. Yeah, I like him but he is a real slow talker. Good talk.


rovert_xih

He did say the people ARE retarded


zoidbergbb

I mean it’s not discriminatory if we are all retarded.


Poglosaurus

Anyone who hasn't seen wild wild country should see it. Its documentary about his cult, when it tried to settle in America. They were already fleeing India's justice for tax fraud (mostly) and tried to buy themselves a town in the USA.


grey_one

It's so good. The first few episodes set up a really interesting dynamic where you're unsure if his followers are being discriminated against by the town who just don't want outsiders, or if the townspeople have a point. Then the poisoning happens and you're like "oh ok it's a crazy cult. Got it." Then it gets even more bizarre.


Poglosaurus

And as horrible and scary she is, Sheela is so fascinating. She really make this show... and well she made the cult and the crimes too. Because he may have been the guru but she was the leader. What a character. So intelligent, so driven and yet she seems totally sincere in a faith that led her to commit terrible crimes. You have to wonder how she got so completely engulfed in this cult. And if she was, how could anyone resist?


PM_ME_YOUR_SIGNS

She also follows the pattern where the 2nd in command in a cult is the key to to the cults rise in power and greater harm. See Brigham Young (Mormons), David Miscavige (Scientology)


St3llarWind

Basically hijacking a vehicle for themselves to gain power.


maddly8239

Uhhh, a lot of emotional trauma and maybe a lack of support elsewhere. Source: My award winning, PhD holding, beautiful, intelligent, motivated mother. Who happens to also be in a cult


mj371

She's currently running 2 memory care facilities in Switzerland https://www.telegraphindia.com/culture/people/being-sheela-a-candid-chat-with-ma-sheela-anand/cid/1813580


Socksgoinpants

"Tough titties"


Fred_Foreskin

And what else is fascinating about her is that she now runs some sort of assisted living facility in Switzerland (or maybe Sweden). It's like she went from being this crazy cult leader to a charitable old lady.


schwingaway

> the town who just don't want outsiders, or if the townspeople have a point Both, IIRC. Their prejudices were not just vindicated but overshadowed by reality, but they still came first chronologically.


observingoctober

even if the modern interviews, they complain more about all the sex the cult members were having way more than the attempted murder and poisoning


zh1K476tt9pq

>his followers are being discriminated against by the town I mean they were. the town people were complete garbage too. it's basically "racists vs cultists"


Nexus_27

From the beginning it felt like a crazy cult to me. What I struggled with is how all those interviewed had rationalized to themselves that really no harm was done, and that something good still had been achieved with their commune, and that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding. Very few recognized their mistake. Many were all well meaning, kind and decent people. Who happened to get swallowed into a cult and yet even now weren't ready to admit that significant wrongs were committed and that they played a part in it. This may have been because of the nature of the documentary or how it was cut or the questions asked... Still, that was the wild part of it to me. Still hanging on to the naive ideal of what it could've been and not the acknowledging the disaster it turned out to be.

Lol right? Wise words? From this cult leader / embezzler? Usually those types of people can articulately criticize society and point out many of its issues aptly. They then use that to profit off of you. People should assess the messenger much more than the message these days

Term limits ain't going to do any good; you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans." Edit- typo


meeranda

Yeah, but this dude in the video (Osho/Rajneesh) was a cult leader… so maybe don’t take his advice. Listen to George instead.


denny31415926

Well in this circumstance he's not wrong


meeranda

Some things that Donald Trump said weren’t wrong either given the circumstances, but I sure as hell won’t be taking any advice from him.


vlasvilneous

The fact that Trump can speak english in a recognizable pattern means the likely hood of him being right at least once in his life is obscenely high, almost to the point of being a given. But all that means is someone else said it already and said it better. Now if we were looking for originality from Trump, well... the only original thing he has produced is being orange and wearing his pants backwards at a GOP event (Im pretty sure neither have happened before at GOP events, let alone both at the same time)

radiantwave

The problem is that people who are uneducated need to respect the direction of those who are. For some reason (religion) people have begun questioning the advice of those who have spent their whole lives studying a subject... Take climate change 99.9% of all climatologists agree with man made global warming data... There is a little variance on the exact outcome severity, but they almost all agree on the outcome... But some dumb ass takes that .1% disagreement and makes a case that 45% of the population listens to. It is idiotic. Especially when the .1% has taken money from the oil industry to fudge the numbers and their whole premise has been disproven. Same with vaccines... Same with election results... Same with... It goes on and on and on like this. The general population lives in this Dunning-Kruger fantasy land and refuses to even listen to anything outside of their own mental echo chamber. The question becomes, can democracy function under this disfunctional reality of fact denial and disinformation news cycle? Is the character of of a democracy able to defer to experts or does one crackpot have the ability to destroy the foundation of democracy.


enigma2shts

It's not about education but rather intelligence If they had the intelligence to understand that then no problem "Educated" does not mean intelligent . It just means you have knowledge in your field of study You don't magically become smarter


radiantwave

[Dunning-Kruger effect](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect) Competence in a field... Call it what you want intelligence/education, it is the practical application of a discipline. But just because one is competent in one field does not imply competence in another. I know a lot of educated idiots also, but what I am referring to is mastery of a discipline. The basis of your comment comes from Dunning-Kruger... Educated people feeling they are smarter than they actually are because of competence in another discipline, they are completely unable to recognize their incompetence in a separate discipline.


LeRetribui

I spent a decade doing research in academia for Biophysics, Biochemistry, Chemical Physics and High Energy Physics. Upwards of 90% of research/papers/articles written since ~2000 have no business whatsoever have being published, and that is in "non political" areas of research and it's even more of a disgrace when money and politics are the drivers of research area. Note that my research is still referenced dozens of times a year in journals such as Nature, Nature Materials, Chemical Reviews, Science Advances, Nature Physics, etc... by researchers at Harvard, Oxford, Smithsonian, MIT, etc... The whole academia world is a sham and has been for decades, and the "I fucking love science" clowns only make it worse.
