Osho bashes another basic assumption of our society: Loving others is good, loving yourself is egotistical and selfish. He asserts that all love is based on self-love. Only when you love yourself, can you love someone else. If you don't love yourself your love for others is only a pretense.
Every child has been conditioned not to love himself but to love others. That is impossible. Only a very deeply selfish person can be unselfish. Being self-centered is basic. A self-centered person seeks to maximize his happiness. The happier you become, the more you will seek to share that happiness with others. That is the only way to be happy.
Osho then talks about why a happy person is the most dangerous person in the world.
