How can we help America? What the hell is America anyway? You know all my brothers have gone to school and got high levels of education. If only if we could use those kind of funds, all the blessings that we had in the past in a certain way. Okay, sure, but that's in the past. And Father did it for his reasons, not yours. I mean, I have more sympathy when it comes to that—when it comes to the Japanese members than American members, that's for sure. Because I deal with those interesting types. I like colorful things, colorful stuff. Even dealing with anything that's colorful, I don't mind. I think that's interesting, it's exciting, it's stimulating. Yeah, sometimes it's the absolute opposite and it's a pain in the butt, but that's the stuff, that's reality. So be it.

Now, having said that, all this, why did Father do that, for what reason? Obviously to make the conditions of the spirit, the spiritual foundation. And what did he do? He absolutely tried every second, almost looking like wasting cash just to create all these organizations, all this stuff that's come and gone. Just to give, give, give to the intellect. You have no idea. I mean, if I talk about it, it will blow everybody's mind. It is astronomical, and where did that come from? That was the blessing that Father envisioned, even on just a physical level—it's in shambles and that's shameful. And whose fault was that? It's our fault, so we have to fix it, okay? This is nobody else's problem, but ours and that's about it. You don't want to be stupid. If you want to advertise, you go to school to learn how to properly advertise, you dumb monkeys. Don't do the obvious stuff. And we can go on and succeed because there is still a whole lot of blessing here. There is. It is doable. Why do I believe that? Okay, since you pushed me.

You know, I watch my competitors. I watch those people speak on Sundays, new comers like Joel Osteen. I pay attention to all those guys, saying all their deal, okay, okay. All packaging. Don't try to give me that. And what do they want to do? What do they want to do? They want to set an example, be an example of something for others. Okay, that's okay, we can compete with that. We can do that too. Let's just start with that. We can do that too.

We can start with the body first, we can focus on the body, the world of needs. The thing about materialism is that when that controls everything, whether you like it or not, you're not really thinking about anything, it just consumes you completely. The physical stuff. When you look at America especially, you know pilgrims stopped coming to America to find God hundreds of years ago, the 17th century. People come to America to find opportunity, riches! They want to be God, they want to be rich. That's about it. There's no other reason to come to America. You don't find it here, you don't find any other reason. That's about it. It's not even the freedom, it's about opportunity.

What freedom? freedom to be what? I mean what if you were religious? American freedom is very offensive to you, you know what I'm saying? It has nothing to do with freedom. It just says that so many times. It likes to say it. And people, you know, always like to put their best foot forward, whether it's true or not is irrelevant. When they think that they have the power to do so, then they will do so. Based on how they want to be perceived, because without that perception, you don't get accolades. America needs to have that kind of self-glorification so it can fuel itself, in terms of its need for consumption and excess, so be it, and that's reality.

Okay, so when you're talking about America's freedom, in essence it's basically capitalism. What does capitalism create? What's important in capitalism? Opportunity. But if you're so obsessed with opportunity you're obviously going to become an opportunist. If you become an opportunist, you are not going to be a very caring person for other people. You're going to be self-centered, and if you're a self-centered s.o.b. you're not going to be a good role model for the rest of the world, because you're so caught up in your own individualistic need. You're a pure individualist.

Then what? When you create a frickin' climate of that stuff and you encourage that stuff, how do you think that society will end up? Do you really see a future in that? No, I don't think so. Somebody will use the United States as the wrong example and try to modify it to somehow be better than your stupid dumb ass, that's about it. It might be a little bit, but still in the end, they'll succeed. Because you're going down the wrong path, point of no return and that's about it. It doesn't matter how much you try to deny it, it will happen eventually. It will start from you and it will go up the line of your family; you'll contaminate even your grandfather, your mother and your father, never mind your children and your posterity. Because that's all they see.

Is that the American dream? I don't think so. Somewhere along the line the American dream has passed away. I'm not American. I'm proud not to be an American. I can be called American technically because I've been living here over thirty years. But I came here because my Father had his mission, that's about it, I tagged along. I guess he carried me along so I had no choice about it. So be it. It doesn't matter. That's not the point. But Father spent so much time and energy, and so much stuff; if I actually started listing, line item by line item, it would blow your frickin' mind. But I'm not going to do that—not today. There'll be plenty of time for that crap later. But that's all in the past.

What's important is what's going to happen in the future. And what can you do. There are times that—I'll share since I'm in a sharing mood I'm going to share. Okay you know I let myself, normally I don't behave that way, but I did at one point in my life, and I do regret it, but that's why I'm telling you—I let it go. I just let it go. I didn't want to resolve it. I didn't want to deal with it. I didn't want a solution. I just let it go. I just let it go. I just let that anger just go. And it grew. And it grew. And I realized in the end why it was growing and started getting out of control. Because everything is connected. And that's the realization that I had. The reason that it was growing and getting bigger and bigger was because I let it go and it connected to all sorts of other stuff. And that's the thing about living, being a human being, is that you're connected. And when you know it's not good for you get rid of it as fast as you can!

I believe that in the future we can do a whole lot of good stuff. Why? Because we're unique damn it! We're absolutely unique! And we can prove that we got something better. Hey, we'll compete and we'll win. We're here to stay and we'll compete until the end. And let's compete, okay, it doesn't matter. In goodness, screw badness, in goodness let's see who's the better man in the end; you know what I'm saying? And that's why to a point there's an attraction to democracy. Because it's kind of brotherly, you know what I'm saying, right? Because that's also a very important part of restoration, not just restoring Adam's position but Cain and Abel too. Then, we can win. And let it happen. I'd rather have a democracy to work with than some kind of theocracy. You know what I'm saying? There're a lot of nuts out there—crazy people "la, la, la"—I’m not saying anything. If you know me, it's just a joke, okay? I'm just very direct, in many ways. The way I express is very shallow, and sometimes it works. Not all the time. That's about it.

Anyway, I believe we can do this, okay? You know what I'm saying? This is kind of the first time for me in a long time. I'm going to keep it short, okay? And I’ll  try to stay away from notes like I used to. If I have notes I'll speak longer, that's why I don't have notes! Anyway, you guys take care, I'm fine. You know things will happen the way they should. And I see tremendous hope for the future. And thank you for your concern and your prayers. And I’ll do my best to help you guys as much as I can. To share with you, and be with you, okay? Thank you.
