I just had another take on that thread, so I decided to start a new one.
I've been going to the meetings off and on lately, so for the ones of you who haven't been in a while, you would not believe how much the the borg is constantly repeating that phrase over and over again. its like they are trying to spook everyone out. so everyone is constantly saying that phrase over and over, and I mean EVERYONE. They repeat it over and over like robots or parrots. Everyone seems so terrified.
Now, what I want to know is..... what exact proof is there that makes them feel that the end is so extremely iminent? That's what I feel like shouting whey they say..... its right around the corner. Did something happen that now makes the GB tell the elders, CO's and DO's to relay this information to the rank & file in a vigorous, earnest manner? Did an angel fly down from heaven perhaps tell the GB this information all of a sudden??? Remember when Jesus said re: the distruction of Jerusalem "when you catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation and jerusalem is surrounded by encamped armies, flee to the mountains"? Remember that?? Well did something like that happened? I mean, am I missing something here, like did some big world event, that I didn't hear about, happen to cause the GB to send out this warning like the angels told Lot 'flee now cause fire & sulfer is about to come down?' Because I watch the news and I haven't heard about any poignient sign that would give the GB any reason to act like "hey everyone!!! the end is NOW super, duper, duper near around the corner"!!!! What is going on?, is this, another propaganda, cry wolf scare? So, for all of you out there with family still in the borg, you are going to start hearing that phrase a whole lot more.
It seems to me like the borg is trying to scare everyone into staying in, maybe, I really don't know but what I do know is that I've never seen anything like it in all my close to 30 years in the borg, its like I'm in 'night of the living dead' where the zombies just repeat over and over 'the end is so close', 'the end is so close.' And I have to admit, I kinda feel sorry for certain ones who are so nice and yet so trusting of the borg, it makes me feel sad for them because their hopes are so high and their lives are so hard and miserable because of the yoke of slave labor they're subjected to. so so sad.
Ahhh I feel better, just had to vent.
