I saw the signs with Hiromasa, way, way back (as on the 1980's) and I never failed to mention it to fellow members, regular and senior "leaders" alike. Always, and I mean always
, it was brushed aside with "he's just helping his daddy out", "it doesn't mean anything, there are many 'vice-presidents'", "he's representing his father, because papa is too busy or getting too old to do everything himself", etc.. The membership is hopelessly deluded. If anything, it's gotten much worse with time.
Came across this clip [www.youtube.com
] (published less than a week ago). 7 minute clip which demonstrates the typical heavy-handed guilt game thrown out at gakkai cult meetings. It's always being done by some gung-ho heavily brainwashed cult member or power-hungry-manipulative "leader." Have been to, experienced and seen many
gakkai cult meetings like this one. Bad memories. If you manage to watch it to the end, you'll also get to see the whacked out appeal to emotion finale (again, typical). For those unfamiliar with how gakkai cult org. "discussion" / zadankai meetings work, . . . . this is a glimpse of one aspect. (Notice the ever present cult org. themes, "WIN!", "VICTORY!", "ACTUAL PROOF!", "CHANT!", "SHAKUBUKU!". Same ol' stuff, same ol' manipulation, same ol' playbook and ol' same cult org..)
(You also might want to notice her outfit. Anyone see the significance? Gakkai Cult Org. tri-colors. The force is strong in this one, mhmm, me thinks.)
