    If You think that all of what Sadhguru is on based on Youtube then You are correct. He himself calls it all circus. He never say believe in what he says, he just says try the methods he shares out, if it works for you good, if not drop it and move on, so his methods are where is real value is, not his youtube vids or the interviews he does, its all circus as he says, just to get ppl interested and curious, No belief involved, he's one of the most anit belief ppl I've researched...

    Sadhguru definitely shares good material, which just makes it that much more frustrating to see him trying to sell us Hindu myths. He also spreads a fair amount of disinformation. My favourite one is when he says that 70% of the internet is pornography. I mean, we understand the point he’s trying to make, but why is he lying to his audience? 

  2. @Leo Gura It’s not nato that wants Ukraine, it’s Ukraine that wants nato. They want to know that if Russia attacks it, the other countries will come to its aid. As for Russia being a big country, its population isn’t that much bigger than Mexico’s. If Russia gets to choose whether its neighbours are nato members, why can’t Mexico have the same choice?

    every time i have listened to sadghuru, my feeling has been that he is a son of a bitch without a grain of truth in his being, lying narcissistic trash

    He has lots of good teachings. But there are so many claims he makes that I know for sure are just a pack of lies. It reminds me of yogananda’s autobiography, which is chock full of pure myths which yogananda claims happened in front of him. 

    This isn’t to completely discredit their teachings. Both yogananda and sadhguru have very good spiritual teachings, but they also lie a lot about supernatural events which they claim they can do.

    Such stories are very common among mystic New Age types. However I've noticed many of them are also just delusional and live in their own mystical bubbles with no one challenging their BS.

    In any case, Sadhguru is not a normal human being. So using him as some sort of example of what mankind at large can do is deeply wrong.

    Somebody has to call out sadhguru’s bs at some point. There’s only so much of it we can tolerate.

    1) Russia is a very kleptocractic and corrupt state which will spread that corruption around the globe. That will not be a good world to do business in.

    2) There are international laws against invading and annexing soverign countries, which Russia itself signed and agreed to. There is an international order to maintain. Otherwise any country can invade whoever it wants. We've already lived in that kind of world and it ends in disaster and genocide.

    World War II was technically initiated by Britain and France, not the nazis. Britain and France declared war on Germany after it invaded Poland. It could have not done that, and almost certainly there wouldn’t have been a Holocaust. In fact, we could’ve left the Nazis and the Soviet Union fight each other. Remember that the Nazis were looking eastward for expansion, not westward. Britain and France brought the war to themselves.

    That sounds good in theory but in practice you might live to regret such a policy.

    Geopolitics is too complicated and intertangled to just allow one large country to gobble up another large country without any pushback. If you just let Russia run amok it will build itself into an empire and spread its corruption around the world like a virus. Look at Dugin's gameplan. It basically leads to civilizational war between the West and Eur-Asia.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with letting Russia build an empire (not saying that I want that), but there’s inherently nothing wrong with it. In fact, it could keep China busy for us.

    Allowing Putin to get away easily with annexation also sets a bad precedent. What if he wants to annex Moldova next?

    It’s not our job to police the world. The West should focus on protecting nato, and making it clear to Putin that nato will protect itself. Other than that, let Russia do whatever it wants to do.
