So much of what has been said here is true. However, what seems to be lost is the fact that the WT$ proceeded with "simplification" for one reason only, and that is to isolate people. When you really think about "simplification" began when the GB instituted the Elder arrangement, and limited the Public Talks to only material given by the GB.
Last year I went to the DC in Long Beach. I walked in during the afternoon intermission, and what I saw was isolation. People used to eat together in the past. What I saw was families eating together. Now this is not necessarily a bad thing, however people were not walking and talking together. There was a lack of a sense of community. This is the pernicious goal of the WT$. The destruction of community.
Think about it. After your family, who were you closest to? Those in your CBS, right? How often did those get moved around? SO the J-Dubs garnered a sense of camaraderie from working at the Assemblies & Conventions. What happens? Simplification. Same thing with the quick-builds. There is nothing to build camaraderie within the Borg. This is going to be the downfall of the Borg, or as some has stated is a result of the downfall of the Borg.
The image that came to mind while reading these posts is that of a lonely Winston Smith looking at the picture of Big Brother after his time within the Ministry of Love. How he had learned to "love" the thing that had put him through the wringer. The J-Dubs love the thing that puts them through the physical, emotional & most importantly spiritual wringer. The thing that destroys their lives & loves.
The other thing that "simplification" does is create a group of people that are dependent on every word & instruction from Brooklyn. Think about it. Prior to the WT$ takeover through "simplification" who handled things? The local brothers. I am sure the real old timers could go back and point to other similar moves, but I think my point is made.
Control, isolation & dependancy. These are the three things that the WT$ wants.
