Very long intro but including escape of punishment at the murderscene, and hypergrainy. For lovers of forensics, strangers, detectives.

The classroom at 5:35 scared Pezer, which marks one of very few occasions Ive seen fear in his face. Ill stipulate that it didn't and doesn't scare me, it is in fact contemporary Amsterdam in a very mild and friendly form. No burquas or kalashnikovs in sight. Democratic cities are hard cities. A town can only become rational to such a degree after prolonged political insanity.

Wild Wild Country, 2018. - I thought it was well-done documentary series.

LoTs oF dRaMa!



I wish they also made a documentary on Osho’s earlier years, like his family and social environment, his childhood, and his younger years. This may have been even more insightful.
Here’s a speculative, but rather interesting quote I came across by one of his disenchanted former students:

Rajneesh was the son of an ambitious Jain businessman, and he was more like his father than he ever realized. Rajneesh's enlightenment was overlaid on top of a mind attuned to business and making money. Personality is genetically transferable, just as height, weight, and eye color.

(Good read, btw)

I do think that there are some people who are born to be great manipulators, and I think Chandra/Rajneesh/Bhagwan/Osho may have been that kind of person.
————-
Osho as a “world’s biggest pump”, lol, a good notice by UG Krishnamirti. Osho sure was a pimp, and not only that.
Speaking of UG (who’s not in the doc.), I get his bitterness towards Osho (and Jiddu as well, among other so called gurus), but I wish he did more with his own life than just pull out and give up like that in bitterness. Oh well.

Dirty Money (2018). This show is similar to American Greed.

So far, it is only scratching the surface of the corruption issue, but with the careful way it approaches the subject matter, I think it can go a long way.



Season One:1. WV Emmissions fraud, 2. Predatory Lending, 3. Big Pharma price gauging, 4. HSCB Money Laundering, 5. Maple Syrup Trade Wars, 6. Trump as a Con Man.

I think most people are already aware of these scams, but it’s interesting to hear from both sides of the argument as well, and from some of the actual people involved.

The pro legal exploitation side of episode 2 (Payday Loan Sharks) reminded me of the pro-sweat shop arguments made by exploiting companies. Legal, yes, but moral? I thought that the humanizing juxtaposition of these hated “businessmen” in the middle of the big looming moral question was pretty subtle and crafty.
(And I doubt anyone actually fell for it).
