As a worldly, I realize that, if I were to say something about the Watchtower, it would almost always be something that I learned from someone else. I have few personal experiences of what the WT is like.
The words of Ray Franz, for example, were a different matter. He knew the Beast from inside, to a level few other witnesses knew it. So his words carried weight. So do the words of many others who post here, on Freeminds, or elsewhere.
Ray Franz's death made me think what will happen with what you guys know after you leave the forum, or pass away. How would other generations get to know this information? We know about the Greeks, for example, because there was always someone in history who thought it wise to preserve what they said. Who can preserve what you guys have to say? Suppose Simon died. Who would keep the forum?
I gather that it's not many former witnesses who decide to launch a forum like this one, or write a book, or do a detailed and documented account of what happened at some point in the organization. Many of you decide to move on and live a different life.
In sum: the information you have to share is important. How, who is going to preserve it for the future?
