Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

I wonder how the film would pan out if it were about Trungpa and Shambhala in those days. We would see a group who seemed to play out with militarism, there was sexual abusive activity, there was an adoring group of followers and a charismatic leader who liked dressing up. Those times...70’s and 80...
