Briefly, on the topic of reform, I see no reform coming. I have no plans of leading the charge. I am growing more and more comfortable with the idea of not having the Society and many of its teachings in my life. Unfortunately, many lovely people have become so dependant on this religion that I fear what their lives would be like if it all came crashing down on them. Some may be too weak to handle the total disintegration of the Org. These are the "Where else would I go?" types who may not have the inner strength to find themselves again.
I agree that no reform is coming. But you would be surprised at how strong people can be when they have to be. There are many here on this board who were scared to death of leaving the religion. Some came near to having breakdowns, some actually DID have breakdowns. But they survived for one reason:
Freedom is a basic need that the Watchtower and other oppressive mind control cults deprive their members. When tasted for the first time it is extremely frightening, but given time and nourishment it can and usually does bloom into something one embraces and cherishes. Once your mind is freed and you've fought through the trauma of breaking away life can be REALLY lived.
Enjoying the REAL LIFE NOW,
