The term used to describe society outside of The Family. Anything and everything that is 'out there' and not within the group, which considers itself separate from the "un-Godly" world.

It was invariably used while invoking a sense of iconoclastic elitism and thinly veiled distain of the "system" and "systemites".

This characterization played well to personality types who were attracted to trendy "anti-establishment" movements.
