Although Brooklyn certainly benefits from advanced skill sets that can serve as trophies in individual congregations or as life savers in pedophilia lawsuits, the only MONEY Brooklyn needs is that generated by dopamine, the cheapest motivator on the planet. All you have to do is tell the best tall tale to solicit the most investment from your listener. If your listener is not acquainted with other, more competitive tall tales (e.g. Illiad), then they'll stick with you and keep generating the dopamine that gets them through their long blue collar day. All you need is a certain critical mass of these blue collar dopamine-driven to continue reproducing as 'proof of concept', and their fine tableau example will suck in other unfortunates, 'new ones' with elevated dopamine viewing such spiritual bliss, in order to sustain the cycle. "Keep in anticipation..." of some truly interesting new twist on present Truth. "Faith is the assured expectation of things unseen, the evident demonstration of realities not beheld." "Elevated dopmine is a result of anticipation of reward." - http://pubs.acs.org/cen/coverstory/8113/8113pittcon2.html White Dove- getting angry isn't all dark side. If you know the direction that you want to go with your years-till-life-expectancy, then plow your anger into it. There is so much to know and explore that the rate of discovery (mathematically, the slope or derivative) may be at times steep enough that it eclipses the lingering, unforgettable tragedy that was the JW experience. I say at times, because while I could be studying at this instant, I am at this moment admittedly indulging in schadenfreude, in that I delight to discovery what latest stupidity has been foisted upon the faithful, and whether or not they have fallen for it (again). Alternately, I try to cheer on those adult nontraditional students, who will reap more pure joy in unhindered exploration in a year than hardcore JWs will get in several.
