I can't think of any social group or organization that does not have limits on acceptable behavior beyond which that person is ousted.
If you don't pay your lodge dues you are no longer a member. If you use bad language at the PTA you are asked to leave. Etc etc.
Where the Jehovah's Witnesses differ is important to consider.
Being a Jehovah's Witness is about behavior which is compliant to instruction. Further, it is about non-questioning compliance.
If you are told not to grow facial hair and you ask "why?" you are considered rebellious. This is because you are not following orders without passing them through
your rational brain first.
People who ask "Why?" are dangerous to be around because curiousity leads to rational thought.
Rational thought does not bow to mere Authority; it appeals to reason, fact, analysis, measurement, logic and consistency.
All the above are deadly to mere ad hoc pronouncements from Authority alone.
The JW's cannot afford rational membership.
It follows they cannot afford the contagion of curiousity which would inevitably lead to Q & A beyond that provided for mere doctrinal matters.
The core danger for people who follow orders without rational motivation is analytical thought.
The military teaches new recruits to follow commands without question. The Watchtower Society is strictly authoritarian.
The rationale given in scripture is FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PERSON HIM/HER SELF and is designed to make them reconsider bad behavior. It is not designed to quarantine them from asking necessary questions that will lead to satisfaction of rational behavior.
JW's, once again, have twisted a principle into a conditioned reflex.
