Factions, or flip-flops, or both?

    Do the individual article writers have persistently opposing views, or do they each just flip-flop between opposing views?

    What have you observed?

    in the old days (pre 1980's) it was very much individuals having views. now there a lot more standardization, a lot more people read, review and approve before publication. its why the articles seem so much more homogeneous, very bland. by the time they are written, scrubbed for controversy and approved by legal and the gb, they are tepid at best.

    the truth of their views seems to be much more on display when they speak in public like the j w o r g talks, zone visits etc etc

    I think a lot of it is copy/paste from back when they had some talent writing for them.

    I see "phrases" crop up over and over through the years.

    Of course with editing on any flip flop doctrinal points!

    It'd be interesting to see contemporary articles checked with Turnitin or other plagiarism detection software, against all previous articles.
