Yes, "complete idiots" - that's the phrase the latest Awake ( Jan 2006) uses on page 6, thusly:
"However, man's vision of the future has often proved to be illusory. For example, decades ago one expert said that by 1984, farmers
would plow the ocean floor with underwater tractor; another said that by 1995, cars would be equipped with computerized hardware
that would prevent collisions...... Of course, those who made such predictions likely now wish they had remained silent. One journalist
wrote: "There's nothing like the passage of time to make the world's smartest people look like complete idiots."
Are the editors of the above drunk, rank liars or "complete idiots"? What sort of pronouncements have the Watchtower's
magazines made about the future? That Armaggedon is "Soon" - for 120 years? That high school kids should avoid college
because they "will never grow old in this present system of things" ?( May 22 1969 Awake) How about vaccinations? How about
1975 and "six thousand years of man's existence"?
Perhaps the blank zombie-like stare of the child on the Awake's cover says it all.
The lights are on but nobody's home.
