The Watchtower Kingdom was originally created by C T Russell and his wealth, Rutherfraud just grabbed it for himself and used it for his own good.
This is a self devised kingdom that necessitated indentured power to a few opportunistic men. But to create this power they had to come up
with coercive marketing gimmicks to draw the publics attention, from there the kingdom grew and expanded, virtually creating more power
and wealth .
Here's an interesting fact if Russell hadn't dumped most of his money into the WTS. Corporation when he died, characters like Rutherford wouldn't
have chased after it as he strenuously did, once he had control of the money he knew what he had to do keep it fluent and that was to publish more
books and literature, even if it did go against Russell's last will and testament. The potential obtainable power was visioned by himself together
with control of a vast amount of money and thats the real reason for the appearance of the Watchtower kingdom which exists today.
