Two quotes I'm trying to locate, from the Mags I think, or possibly a book;
1) One article (mid '80's ?) stated that it was concievable that this system could continue as far as the year 2000 but all the signs were it would never get this far. I remember making the comment to a brother at the time that things could go on a lot longer, he thought I was talking crazy and then the aforementioned article was published !
2) With reference to ancient Hebrew law, the WT? tacitly approved of the idea of capital punishment in certain cases and I'm sure used the words "no repeat offenders"
Can someone tell me how they find things like this without having to unpack old volumes and try to locate stuff for hours on end ?
