Wouldn't that be hypocritical to order their flock NOT to do what they are doing themselves?
If that could be proven...it would be the end for them.
If they posess more "truth" than the flock, and that protects them from "outside influence" it is simply admitting they are not doing their jobs fully.
If one of their "spies" (intelligence operatives) reads this...YOU have the power to cripple them. They better be kissing your ass.
In reality..the discouraging of the flock from taking in knowledge from the internet...is a flagrant admission of their incompetence, deiciet, and insecurities!
I would like to hear them justify this order they gave. But they are safe for now because JW's don't dare question them....yet.
But remember GB...when "yet" gets here(and I hope it is soon) You are going to have alot of explaining to do. And the spies who protect them, and help them continue to mislead people, will too.
In the meantime....enjoy.
