In 1981, controversial guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (who later in life went by Osho) moved his ashram of followers from India to a 65,000 acre ranch in rural Oregon. Known for his teachings of free love and open marriage, his fleet of Rolls Royce cars, and his collection of diamond-encrusted watches, the guru, his confrontational personal secretary, and his followers quickly drew the ire of local Oregonians over their plans to turn the commune into an actual city. Over four years, tensions escalated rapidly, leading to the arming of the commune, plots to murder elected officials, busing in hordes of homeless people to overwhelm election voting, and the largest bio-terrorism attack on U.S. soil.
