    I just re-read Chickpea's comment; apparently, we disagree.

    Ernesto obviously doesn't know the JW history of MJ very well. Someone posted a comment on MJ's disassociation in 1987.

    And regarding Ernesto having JWs that are very good friends of his, I wonder if he's tried asking one of them to donate a pint of blood or how often they've gone to his house for dinner.

    Well, the JWs would appear to be helpful to him in employing various techniques to change his behaviou for the better. But we who were/are in it know bettter. I'd fear it would only further his burn out and who knows what negative feelings about himself.

    Some people with issues like (insert whatever mental or emotional ones you wish to attribute to MJ) would benefit from some form of active mind regulating. Trouble is its got to be for the good of the individual and not the Borg.

    I think MJ should have retired, sell off as much as he could to remove debt but maintain decent trust funds for his children. Then practice yoga somewhere far far away from the spectacle. I'd think that would have been relatively healing to him. I'm not going to touch his possible deviant leanings except to say that meditating could hopefully reinforce different patterns of thought and hopefully suppress others.
