I like your theory too, sir82. It would explain a lot ............but ......
If true, what does your theory imply? If true , then the organization must be led by a collection of blind fanatics
and unbelieving cynics!
So, you put together a meeting in which you are about to abandon a whole package of Witness beliefs and practises.
Suddenly, 9-11 erupts and a pack of Theocratic Neo-Cons ( emphasis on the "Con") take control. You scramble to kiss
butt and deny that you ever doubted blah, blah ,blah.
But this isn't faith, it's just compliance. This would go a long way to explain why a historically reactionary organization
has lost its voice in recent years! If Knorr was alive in the internet era, he'd burst all the blood vessels in his head!
It would also explain why the publications look like recycled 'cut n' paste' and why the Society acts like "they're phoning
it in" often with a greater malaise manifested than their poor thralls!
You may have a few True Believers at the helm - surrounded by discreet cynics who know it's all bull sh*t. I have encountered
this sort of feeling when I called Patterson in the past. You sense you're dealing with people who are just doing their jobs, like
any corporation , apart from real personal faith.
