<<Now when the society says "jump" the brothers ask "why"? >>
Hmmm. He mentions this as if it is a negative thing. However, one thing I learned in my sojourns with witnesses was that to question everything about one's religion was good--actually necessary for a chance at everlasting life....oh wait, I forgot, that was what we encouraged people of OTHER religions to do. Once you got into the organization, all questions were off limits.
Funny thing, though in Acts 17:11 (you know, from the bible, the book they purport to espouse and live by) the Boreans were given kudos for examining what Paul was telling them and cross referencing it to the scriptures. They were not discouraged from doing so--they were encouraged and commended for it.
Why is open, honest questioning so frightening to this organization? I feel that as humanity evolves, religions like these will have to open themselves to the remotest possibility that they may not have a monopoly on truth or they may just find themselves dying out. The human spirit learns best through questioning.
