Suppose you had a business that didn't make money. You would try to make the thing more efficient and probably lay off
some workers to cut costs. If it still didn't make money, you might shut it down to save the assets.
Unbelieveable as this may sound, could the Governing Body deconstruct the organization and begin to shut down most
of the preaching work? Crazy as it sounds, we need to consider that totalitarian organizations can get stuck with
masses of dependent people they need to 'get rid of'. Suddenly, China discovered that capitalism was good. The
Soviets left Afghanistan and walked away from Eastern Europe.
I think that legal reasons do not completely explain what has happened. Something deeper is going on.
Suppose the placement of books and magazines loses money. Suppose the assemblies barely turn any coin for them.
What alternative is left? Shut it down!
