What has been lost has been found. It was believed that upstanders to the perpetrators of UBF and its retribution were silenced or disbanded. However, that is not truly the case. The reformers are still active and mainly together even to this day. In fact with the way events and circumstances are proceeding in current UBF chapters where current members are shaken up and questioning things (like those who are still in the chapter I use to go to) there’ll be a 5th reform movement. This is a theory of course but a very probably one.
Until I read “The Four Reform Movements” article I had no idea about 2 things. 1st that there were four reform movements. 2nd That there the reform movements happened all around the world including Korea. The latter truly caught my interest for UBF was founded in Korea. I have always heard the sugarcoated story of things going well in Korea and never the other side until the past week. The fact that the founder Lee refused to acknowledge let alone listen to Korea UBF and the rest of UBF is very disturbing. Then again I don’t Lee personally nor have I ever met him for he was killed by fire in Jan 2002 when I was 6 years old. So what I know about Lee is based off of documents, stories, and accounts from people who have met him or knew him personally.
The second and third reform movement is interesting for around and at the same time frame there was a Satanic Panic in the U.S. in the 1980s and 1990s. Here is an interesting article about the Satanic Panic. In fact there was controversy at the Triton UBF chapter in 1997 which was documented. Here is all the declassified info on the Triton UBF chapter.
I believe there were a lot more UBF reform websites besides the Korean, German, and U.S. It could be that they are undercover or under a different name. Here is an insightful list of some UBF reform websites. **Disclaimer: For the websites that are not in English like the German UBF reform sites if you are not fluent in foreign languages you’ll need Google translate or Microsoft Translator.**
Is there anything that I have missed? What was your experience or perspective during one of the reform movements or during the Satanic Panic?
