"I myself, having studied the French Revolution, am also left scratching my head at President Ikeda's adulation of Napoleon, who used violence to devolve the democratic ideals of the Revolution back into an autocracy and attempted to export the Revolution which he had in fact destroyed to the rest of Europe by military force." -- Larry
Daisaku Ikeda stated, "The Soka Gakkai Is the jewel of Buddhist Democracy" and Napoleon called his dictatorship, "a Republic". SGI is modeled after the recreated French Monarchy of the Emperor Napoleon. So, of course, Ikeda adulates Napoleon.
