The moment you stop asking why, you have stopped growing…OSHO
The basic purpose of all ordering of people is to reduce them into robots.
All over the world, in every army, they are turning millions of people into machines — of course, in such a way that you don't understand what is going on. Their methodology is very indirect.
What does it mean that thousands of people every morning are marching, following orders — "Right turn, left turn, move forward, move backward" — for what is all this circus going on? And for years it goes on. This is to destroy your intelligence.
The strategy is that if for years continuously you go on following any kind of stupid thing, meaningless, every day in the morning, every day in the evening… And you are not supposed to ask why. You just have to do it, to do it as perfectly as possible; there is no need for you to understand why. And when a person goes through such a training for years, the natural effect is that he stops asking why. And why? — because the questioning attitude is the very base of all intelligence.
The moment you stop asking why, you have stopped growing as far as intelligence is concerned.
