The Governing Body... victims of the misinformation that has gone back many, many years? They might not be as entirely evil as many of you have pointed out. Even Hitler believed the misinformation that he so strongly promoted, an anti-Semitism that stretched back centuries. So misinformation starts out somewhere, and the Governing Body are not the originators of the lack of truth within the organization, and all the misleading information from the Watchtower. Personally, they seem to get very little out of their positions. I mean, obviously they have parts on meetings to give just like everyone else, and they have to go out in service as well. Besides their condescending over the organization (which isn't a privilege), they seem to have very little to gain from their positions, it doesn't sound very fun either, living an isolated life for so long. I mean, if anything they're in their own prospective trap.
Of course the opposite could be true, and the Governing Body are well aware that they know the whole thing is bunk, and they are just living off everyone else to their own satisfaction. The whole thing reminds me of a play I saw this year at ASU called Enrico IV. It was about a wealthy actor that went insane, believing he to be the part he was given in a play (Enrico IV). His personal friends and family accommodated his insanity by building a fictional kingdom; his subjects were actors themselves, playing their parts to the satisfaction of the king. Later on in the play (SPOILERS), the actor confides in some of the actors that he really isn't insane at all, just happy that he fulfilled a secret passion to live a part as close to reality. This idea is considerable, everyone in life seems to fulfill some kind of role, and maybe the Governing Body cherish the opportunity to be kings in a literal, albeit organization sense.
Please identify the honest nature of this question as well; I just want to get some opinions. People in the organization have not hurt me to the extent that many of you have, just wanted to throw this question to you all.
