How gakkai cult-speak is actually used (Hitch's explanations bolded
) within the cult org.
"Hello, my name is _______ and I attended the 'YOUFH! Leader Study Conference at The FNCC with (insert Japanese named 'leader') a study dept. chief in Japan ..."
= I went to the cult retreat, because I'm being cultivated as a cult org. "YOUTH!" "leader" and had focused indoctrination sessions with a top brainwasher from the cult motherland.)
"United as North America, the 'YOUFH!" of $GI USA and the 'YOUFH!' of Canada studied the VOLUME 1 & 2 of 'The Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra"
= The Dear Leader's 'wise' slant of the lotus sutra.)
"I took many, many
different things away and was able to refresh my determination."
= this is 100% quintessential gakkai cult-speak coached bullet points, right down to the stressed emphasis 'many, many
"I want to share with you one key-point that hit home for me."
= lame, meaningless, superficial analogy follows. Keep in mind, this is the KEY POINT, too. It's basically a dressed up and veiled order to do shakubuku - get more people to join the cult.)
"So I left FNCC really
= the indoctrination worked. And incidentally, I've mentioned before how all of the youth leaders tend to copy their leaders, who copy their leaders, who copy their leaders (and so on), with most people picking up the habit of inserting "You know", "You know" before many of their phrases. You can also hear it here. Many do this without even realizing it. Again, it's the indoctrination and mirroring what's drilled into them, constantly. I first noticed this when I was in the cult org. youth and it is still going on.)
"I really chanted that I have to do my 'human revolution' and summon up this courage to be able to DIALOGUE and SHARE the GREAT AMAZING philosophy of this practice."
= more 100%, right down to the emphasized words, gakkai cult-speak standard parroted phrases.)
"Upon my return to work, a coworker just asked me, "so, how was your trip to Florida?" So naturally, I shared with him everything I learned. And I felt really refreshed, that this is my mission."
= a fellow worker makes friendly, casual small talk and it is interpreted as a mystical chance to shakubuku, plant a seed, create fortune and 'fulfill a mission' - see below. Btw, if this guy just happens to be interested in her (not saying this is the case here), he can also be strung along into the cult (I've seen it happen more than once).)
"And so this month I'm really determined to CHALLENGE myself and bring my friend to discussion meetings so they can experience this AMAZING practice for themselves and really have an encounter an amazing mentor in life."
= up until the very last words, it has all been about the lotus sutra, bodhisattvas and daishonin's buddhism. But then it finally comes out, the Ikeda connection. Mmm-Hmm.)
"THANK YOU SO MUCH! BYE-BYE!!"
= believe it or not, even the sign-off is typical gakkai cult programmed cult-speak, right down to the smile, gesture and mannerisms.)
For anybody out there who doesn't really know what the $oka gakkai cult is about, you don't need to go to a gakkai cult zandankai (discussion) meeting now, because this clip is the exact
same thing you'll hear for an hour after doing the prayers and magic chant for 20 or 30 minutes.
