When we mention the word, “sect,” many ideas come to mind. There is Jim Jones, the leader of a religious group in Guyana who was photographed inciting his followers to love, “Drink Kool-Aid,” which was poisoned.
Their promised reward: The journey to Paradise and eternal salvation.
Of course, it is less like a strategy than the violent terrorists who find themselves in a poor, hopeless, and angry world based on the promise that they will meet a large number of beautiful women at the end of their violent journey.
Usually, according to experts, there are a number of steps that need to be taken before we can list a religious group, dividing it, say, your local bridge club or AYSO football league.
Time is running out when we connect with COERCIVE organizations that want to reduce the power of members to set priorities, make free choices, and enjoy the freedom to be independent.
In particular, according to one definition, the compulsory sect meets the following principles:
1. People are put in situations of physical or emotional stress
2. Their problems have been reduced to a single definition, which is often emphasized
3. They receive unconditional love, acceptance, and attention from a leader
4. They get a new group-based ID
5. They are under arrest and their access to information is strictly controlled.
Does this mean that your dojo art war can be a coercive religion?
Dismissal, and power struggles occur all the time in dojos, and these are stressful situations physically and emotionally. Participants are more open to suggestions.
Some dojos use reduction, everything — or nothing — explains the internal condition of that. For example, they might say: “You’re in CAUSE or EFFECT, and there’s nothing in between” and “Don’t say, or you’re against us!”
A leader can act as an omnipotent master, who knows the royal lord, conveying and holding the rewards of such emotions as positive attention, public praise or judgment and observation. Others go out of their way to change their membership by making sure “We’re family, now!” This is an attempt to shift the loyalty of the foundation from the natural system and support systems to acceptable ones, leaders and elected organizations.
Clearly, if your dojo subscribes to the band system, your behavior is closely controlled by your level, which becomes your primary identifier.
Do dojos trap and trap?
The real test is to prove how members are elected not to work or to stop meeting and being treated. Are they abandoning pollution, assault, verification, and dismissal? Or, do they wish good luck and are encouraged to stay connected and come back on a certain date?
I believe that the ultimate test is whether the dojo wants, and has the effect of improving or diminishing your Human ability to be, to act, and to think, independently. If their approach is to try to replace group-thinking with the goals of integration or of leaders and the person’s reasoning and feelings, they have crossed the line.
Are there good and bad religions? Certainly, however do not confuse the idea that the distinction between the two is simply a matter of labels or semantics. This is a great help for Kool so you can be careful not to swallow.
