Then he clapped his hand over his mouth and said, "Oh! I shouldn't have said that!"

You see, he already knew what Lee had done in Taiwan. But in their culture, you're not supposed to expose leadership. Lee repeatedly leveraged this culture of silence.

Today, with the internet, one can read the stories. LSM no longer runs the only printing press in town. One can read what happened to others, as they realized the extent of the gap between how the LC " church life" was supposed to be, and how it really was.
