Ikeda's Problematic Speech

He is in the habit of saying, " Let's take over the country.".                   ( The Seikyo Shimbun, March 10 1952 )

" When Kosenrufu is accomplished, ( Kosenro is a Buddhist term. According to Ikeda's interpretation, it is a situation where most people have become faithful Soka Gakkai members. )        some of us will have gained influencial positions in Japanese politics such as in the House of Councilors or the House of Representitives. They will usually have at least 100,000 yen to 200,000 yen in their wallet. They will wear nice clothes which will not be purchased in monthly installments but will be paid for in cash. Let's meet in the Diet Building or the Prince Hotel. We must place the Soka Gakkai members in all the key position of Japanese government and society, otherwise Kosenrufu will not be accomplished. "      ( The Seikyo Shimbun, September 6 1957 )

" I feel the time to take over Japan has come close. A party that can't take the rein of the government need not exist. But don't worry. Here, I am behind the party "                     ( Photo gathering with members of the Komei Party, November 16 1976 )

" Extend our power inconspicuosly, set up networks in the industrial world. Nakasone is under our control. He is just a boy on our side. When he asked me to help make him Japanese Prim Minister, I said " Okay, Okay, I'll let you bem a Prime Minister. " He puts on airs like Kennedy, He is just a kid. "                            ( The 6th Shachokai, November 25 1967 )

" My men manipulating even police are Takeiri and Inoue. "                         (the 13th Shachokai, July 8 1968 )

" As long as the Soka Gakkai exists, everything,- - - Japan, the world also, is preserved. Based on that, have a view point toward the world and the Soka Gakkai. I have taken measures to realize world Kosenrufu. "                                            ( The 1st Central Meeting. June 16 1975 )

Soka Gakkai Has Deteriorated into a Scheming Cult

 " Be as ready to talk as to work. Be clever. Even the Japan Socialist Party does the same. So does the Communist Party. They make schemes for their purposes. Everyone in our society does.

" Uh- -, how is Clinton doing ? Uh- -, yes,, as he is doing, talking slyly, deceiving people a lot. Well,but don't be apprehended by the police. Uhu-hu-hu- -, oh, that's Okay. You know, you must talk more slyly than Clinton does in Shakubuku activities ( Recruiting new members ), and in instructions. Remember, poor talkers are behind time. Clinton is really a glib talker."
