re: Binged "Wild Wild Country" over the weekend. - tigger1
[quote]Agreed. The documentary did seem to be pretty biased towards the cult. I still feel like I don't know the whole story. [/quote] This is an understatement, the show went way out of it's way to make the cult look good. ...

re: Binged "Wild Wild Country" over the weekend. - tigger1
Look the show left out so much about this cult, first on why it really came to America. The show did not show the real Osho in a real light and his quotes will tell you all you need to know. The largest bioterror attack in American history was carried out by this group. The system at the cul...
