The references to the Osho commune here were not meant as a direct suggestion to refound that situation, now a classic of American underground history. It seems the actual details are already part of their time, but the fact remains that there are a lot of (spiritual) agencies that wish to influence politics, but over and over they succumb to rightist perspectives. The Osho sphere was/is the only one that was open to radical vision. There we find a contradictory yet vital wildness that could open up the left to the grounded spirituality thousands of years old, and yet always new.
In any case, this was not an endorsement from me: the reality is an invasive and aggressive spirit trying to find a medium for a radical ‘postreligion’ of the future.
At a time of deepening crisis the need to carefully restate the basic principles of marxism in a new form beyond historical materialism finds a somewhat wild resource in this new age piece de resistance. The revolution against capitalism deserves a recursion of this kind of buddhist legacy for a new and coming era.
