Reflect, Gentle Reader, what is "it" that the many victims of the fundamentalist uhj are supposed to get over? I submit "it" is defined by Professor Juan Cole in "The Baha'i Technique":
"The purpose of having this system where it is so easy to turn insiders into outsiders is to maintain very strict control over the community by its leaders. The idea is that everyone still on the inside will fear being made a non-person or being ostracized or being shunned, and so will keep quiet and let the leadership do as it pleases with them. Silent suffering of tyranny and injustice from one's leaders is the actual definition of a Baha'i in good standing. Of course, this requirement is cult-like...."
