From reading so much here, it seems evident that WT restricts young people from enjoying much in life. Apparently they have condemed a lot of music genres and now jumping on Facebook, too. Has this always been true through the years that anything in popular culture was demonized or restricted?
As a JW were you restricted from fun things like yo-yo's, light-up sneakers, tye-dyed clothing, etc. because WT managed to somehow turn it into something of a scriptural admonition?
What were some of the past fads that would have brought a JC down on your head? What were some of the things that you would like to have had or things you would like to have participated in but were cut short by WT dictates? And what reasons did they give that "hayrides and such" were the tools of Satan?
