Hi. I've not posted in a while, but I thought you might find this Youtube video intersting. The speaker is a little hard to understand, but he basically talks about the causes for the rift between Nichiren Shoshu and SGI in Ghana. The Ghana Constitution allows Ghanians to elect their own leaders, but SGI tried to place their own leaders within the Ghana organization.
I found another video featuring Joseph Asomani, but he has a very thick accent and there background noise, so it's harder to understand.
There has never been anything even resembling democratic decision making in the cult org.. Everything (and I mean everything
) is at the whim of the Japanese leaders. It's either their way or the highway - period. It has always been that way.
The cult org., from the 90's onward, along with the priesthood breakup, underwent a kind of self-inflicted radical brain surgery (lobotomy). Ever since then they have basically rallied the wagons and become ultra-paranoid control freaks, much to their own detriment. I don't think they care, either. They just want hardcore brainwashed members.
