  • Guru Papers

By unmasking authoritarianism in such areas as addiction, intimate relationships, cuts and religion, the authors expose it as a major social factor in social disintegration. Part 1 examines the most extreme example of one person giving power to another, the guru/disciple relationship, as this reveals less obvious occurrences of control Guru is a metaphor for anyone who manipulates others under the guise of knowing ‘what’s best’ for them – whether leaders, mothers or lovers.
