As I posted about myself earlier, I was raised a JW, was never baptized, and faded away in my mid-twenties. The last meeting I attended was in 1985. Here are a few questions.
1. I notice in many post the term borg. What does the "b" stand for?
2. Where does the money go? Who ultimately benefits the most from the WTBTS publishing empire? Stock holders? Are there Swiss bank accounts, possibly?
3. I've written a coming-of-age novel about a 14 year old JW boy that takes place in the summer of 1975 (his last summer?). It's kind of a Catcher in the Rye goes to the Kingdom Hall. Has anyone else on the board used their JW experience to write fiction? Does anyone know of any mainstream fiction that is set in the JW world?
