    His last name rhymes with "ante."

    I would assume that it was David Mercante.

    Thank you so much MLE for the good work that you do.

    It is great to be informed. The society/Gb treats us like mushrooms ...they keep us in the dark and feed us horse manure!lol


  • clarity

    Oh sorry, I hope your'e feeling much better soon.

    Remember the magazine that stated 'their' stand on higher education? ... something about, people who are educated are harder to lead? (post it if you've got it plse)

    May I quote Henry gotta love this!

    "Education makes people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; Easy to govern; but impossible to enslave."

    MISERY- Thanks for sharing these insights with us. As always the WT society once again is hypocritical in bashing rank and file members from educating themselves at college , or elders who have children- yet it's common knowledge that quite a few of Bethel appointed attorneys and others have been put through college by the organization in order to serve the Bethel needs or WT society needs. What's good for the goose is NOT good for the gander . One of the reasons I left this organization was it's gross hypocrisy. I see it's still alive and well. As well as dumbing down all the beggarly rank and file knaves so they don't know WHAT the hell is going on - only that they are supposed to follow orders from the GB. It sickens my stomach to know I have 2 adult daughters being manipulated by this crap still

    haven't had time to read the responses, but I just wanted to say thanks MLE. Really do appreciate your opinion and viewpoint. I am going to go back and read up on the responses now.

    The grand puba started off this discourse by mentioning the thoughts of a certain Joseph Addison. I couldn't locate the exact quote online, but it was along the lines of "education shapes lives."

    Could this be the quote?

    "What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to a human soul."
    — Joseph Addison

    The WTBS is the modern day scribes and pharasies. They teach their own traditions of men as if it were the word of God. the keep adding and adding, tweeking and tweeking until you can't help but make the comparison. They go above and beyond what was written. They have made the Watchtower a suppliment of the Holy Bible. These so called Bible study aids are treated as an addition the the better do as we say!

    Great thread misery...

    I think the watchtower corp knows exactly what is going on. I dont think that are in the dark when it comes to anything. possibly due in part to our frequent postings here!

    They are tightening up. They will insist and get greater control over everything, JWs leisure time, work, education, cash and assetts from here in on. Those that dont submit will be out.

    they will and are downsizing for a smaller but more profitable bottom line.

    my thoughts, anyway...

    Thanks for sharing, mle. Can't wait to here more but get better first!

    Reading stuff like this gives me hope but scares me too. If the grip is tightening, either my family still in will wake up or they'll follow to their own demise.

    The ones at the top really are hypocritical bastards.
