The fact that the WTS kills any and all enjoyment a JW could ever have in the JW's. An example would be congregation picnics. Back when I was a JW, 12 years ago now, they were very common. Every summer one family or another would put a potluck together and have it a some park in the area I grew up in. It was fun. A little distraction from the norm. Everyone was invited. Now those are not "recommend". Please tell me why getting together with your fellow JW's is a bad thing?? You can't go to these kinds of functions outside the JW's so why ban them inside??
Everyone was invited. No one was left out. All it was, was good clean fun with your brothers and sister. They don't allow friends outside the Borg and now they don't want you to associate to closely with those who are in either. The problem I see as most scary in the JW's now is the over PC direction they have taken with everything. Young people need fun in their lives if they want to keep them. If they keep killing any and all fun a JW has it will be like squeezing a fist around a hand full of sand. The tighter the grip the more that get away.
It's all about control. The governing body would be happy if everyone had zero emotions/thoughts of their own at all. Easier to control. Sheep meant to be led. I don't think anyone in Bethal has any recollection of what it's like to be a young JW anymore.
