Bring your kiddies and the entire family to the FNCC $oka Gakkai International Cult Retreat Center:
Create a (meaningless) manufactured, artificial milestone goal to rally everyone around for the long term (years) and repeat the message constantly, until it becomes a "part" of their mind. Now, it's 2030.
Official song starts of the video.
"We Are 2030" (Translation: You future belongs to the cult, don't ever forget it.)
"We are brave, we are strong.
We are joyful, hear our song.
We are 2030, growing strong.
Like a tree, shining waters bright will be.
We Are 2030With our mentor by our side
, our lives are shining like a sun.
Snows are deep, winds are cold.
We are brave, we are bold.
We Are 2030
Golden song, you and me, running fast, running free."
We Are 2030 - repeat."Mentor
= The Dear Leader, Cult Master - Ikeda
From ~ 2:10 min. mark, you get the top "YOUTH!" brainwasher appearing in audio (from the "official" 2030 video):
"Did you guys see the "We Are 2030" video?
Do I look familiar?
In Buddhism, we use our voice.
They say the voice "does the work of The Buddha."
What is one that we do when we use our voice in Buddhism?
(At this point a kid says, "CHANT!", but the host just laughs it off, because it's not what he is aiming at.)
And then what else do we do with our voice in Buddhism? Go ahead, you can yell it out.
(Now a kid yells out, "GONGYO!" and the host responds, "Yeah, you can do that", but is still looking for a different answer.)
What am doing with you guys right now with my voice?
(Kids respond, "talking!")
Talking to who, about what?
You can use your voice to introduce people to Buddhism, to talk about Buddhism ..... So the voice is the main tool that we use.
Cue in the happy music about artificial cult friends, for the remainder of the video.
There were so many stupid goals thrown out for all the members, especially "YOUTH!" to work towards, that lasted for years. There would be an intense and massive push, especially as it neared. It would happen, some big silly event at some special venue, filled with silly performances, vacuous speeches and lots of mindless emotional manipulation with feel good cheering ...... then, it would be done. A short break, then another golden opportunity "milestone" is manufactured. There were so many of these events, that I lost track of how many and what they were all for (that's how important they were, at least for me). I wonder how many people never see the big picture and the extended, chronic manipulation taking place.
Notice how it is placed into the kids' minds how important it is to bring other people into the cult org.. Although the word "Buddhism" is used repeatedly, the gongyo (prayers) and daimoku (magic chant) are secondary to getting more physical bodies pulled into the cult org.. This is a very revealing admission as to where the cult org.'s true priorities are. It speaks volumes. As these kids grow older, there will be more, increased pressure from the org. and their "leaders" to do exactly that, too. Pressure, manipulation, more pressure, more manipulation and repeat forever, starting the process all over with a new generation of tabula rasa to be exploited.
This is the true nature of the gakkai cult org.. This is a silly cult and it is very easy to see what they are doing, if you step back and take in the big picture. The signs are always there, if you look and think, for yourself (this, btw, is something that they don't want you to do, for obvious reasons).
