having spent a time as one of jws, I know paranoia runs deep. it was the FBI during WW2 and now it is apostates. They are big bad and nationwide.(they really are you know, all you wts spies reading this)
And now xjws do worry about spys here on this board, b/c it has happened. a number of jws feel it is their God given duty to hang around here and rat people out. I recall in the middle 90's a jws giving me a list of known apostate screen names and email addy's. (lots of chat rooms on aol then and jws had one and the xjws had one) I looked at it carefully to make sure I was not on it. () So there it was, a list of known apostates ciculating around the KH. Did the wts offically do this ? no, some zealot decided it was their "duty". But the wts encourges this is , b/c they encourge them to rat each other out. Did not see anyone stopping this person, they even got pats on their back for it)
most of the time it is your own family that will turn you in. You get sloppy and tell someone how you feel and bingo, they always hated you anyhow and then you are reported to the elders.
Paranoia runs deep.
Into your life it will creep.
It starts when you're always afraid.
Step out of line, the Man comes,
And takes you away.
You better Stop. Children,
What's that sound?
What's going on?
