Soka Gakkai - the cult rules Japan
You don't know anything about Soka Gakkai? Don't worry about that because this website is for those who don't know much about Japan.
A sect of Buddism, Soka Gakkai, is referred to as Soka Gakkai International (SGI) in the world, so I'll call SGI from now on. Surprisingly, this cult has been prevailing in over 100 countries all around the world. You live in America? Oh, yes. it has even two universities in california, giving birth to a lot of believers. On the other hand, it was designated by French parliament as a cult, so the article I'm writing may have something to do with your life even outside Japan. (Recently I've heard a rumor that SGI attempted to steal nuclear weapons from France. Please give me any information on this.) By the way, I've heard that SGI was accused by France because it attempted to steal nuclear bombs from France. Let me know if you know furthermore about this.
The weiredness of the cult can be vividly seen when you go to a town in Tokyo, Shinanomachi, where it's located several stations away from Tokyo station; it's as the center of Tokyo. As soon as you get off the train, you'd see a weired ambient with tricolored flags here and there, at the shops or electric poles. They're SGI's flags! As you walk through into the district, suddenly you'd feel you are watched by someone. You turn back, and there's someonee keeping on the track of you. He has a transceiver and doesn't even hide it. You got scared so much. And what would you do? Going to police? Well, it's not gonna work because it's called "Soka heaven" here, and of course the police is "Soka police". The above pic I borrowed from a website is a very precious; the blogger was surrounded by a couple of guys and asked what he was taking pictures for. He ran away and posted this pic. The town of SGI is THAT dangerous to snooping around.
Here I uploaded a map of SGI's territory around the town in which oranged and grayed buildings belong to SGI. Just imagine that one whole town is occupied by a cult. It's so scaring. There are many shops recently built dealing with SGI stuff although they are not shown in the map, and of course they are run by the practitioners.
Let me explain why they are called "a cult". One aspect is that they don't allow to be critisized at all. The map I got is originally published by "Weekly Diamond", which featured SGI several years ago, but it resulted in buy-out by SGI, not letting many readers to purchase this number. Those buy-out usually is followed by a successive defamation suits against the publisher regardless the quality of the article. They are OK because they have plenty of money sucked from the earnest believers.
No matter how I insist, you're not going to believe it, aren't you? I happened to run into a video clip from Youtube, and this will convince you. It's a censorship of NHK, the only public TV company and therefore the principal channel.
Even if you don't know Japanese, you could barely hear the woman said "Komeito" and "Soka Gakkai". Komeito is a political party SGI has, and it's taboo on TV although everyone knows it. Since the constitution prohibites any reliigilus group from forming a political party, it's not allowed to even imply the relationship between two. Japan is still not a country with freedom of speech.
