I am right in line with Farkel. Here's some highlights of what he said on page 1 of this thread:
I see lots and lots of high-profile child abuse cases being lost by the WTS...
Once the public becomes aware of their secret kangaroo courts and what they do to victims of child abuse, dubs will find it near impossible to get new members....
I see elders stepping down in droves when they realize just how much liability their Corporate masters have heaped upon them and just how much their Corporate masters have abandoned them whenever there is trouble.
Once lawyers know of a settlement, they want to join the bandwagon. Love and Norris have more cases, but there are probably hundreds of others out there trying to bring their case a settlement of at least half-a-million dollars.
Information is becoming more and more available thanks to people like Barbara Anderson, one who came out in the Nineties with a cause. Plenty others already doing it and more joining in. Ray Franz's books did more to free people than any other source, but the internet made more of us aware of those books. The internet will continue to attract lawsuits and free more people leaving less money available to them.
Expect Kingdom Halls to be more widely sold off once Brooklyn bites the dust. It will happen in a fast sweeping motion. Expect them to try to reduce conventions to two-days in order to save money on facilities and still try to get the same money out of the collective. Some more of them will be moved to Assembly Halls and they will possibly reduce Circuit Assemblies to one-day to accomodate this. (Half as many weekends needed if CA's are held one on Sat. and one on Sun.- also membership decreases, so more congs. crammed into a circuit.)
Elders stepping down and numbers reducing will both cause them to combine more and more congs. That's the reason they will use to sell off KH's. They will have to come up with a frantic excuse that the tribulation is starting and sorting out the weeds from the wheat.
