I also know some people that have chosen to live extremely simply and pio-sneer. Their lifestyles lent to so much stagnation that they did nothing else. Take work when they can find some, so they can waste the money on gas and car payments. Head to unassigned territory in the spring, so they can place tons of rags that will never become return visits or studies. Work trade shows 2 or 3 times a month, bring home a few thousand toilet papers if they are lucky, and then waste the time pio-sneering.
What else I notice is their lack of real joy. They insist on pulling others down to their level, envious of anyone that has any material things that bring them a little fun (envious, as opposed to jealousy--they don't think it's acceptable and act offended at anyone living better than they). This couple insisted on regularly showing up at 6 AM for street work, and were consistently about 15-20 minutes late for field circus. They always had coffee going, struggling to get up in the morning and make the group. The husband, while he was alive, insisted on in-your-face management of the group. If anyone wanted to take a break or move to another territory or call and didn't first notify him, he would get pxxxed. You call that "joy"? I don't.
Another case was at the time I started studying, I had one study at the lead hounder's house. No, he was not a 98 year old living alone. He was under 40, had two children under 12, and had absolutely nothing in the way of entertainment. No TV, no radio, no computer--no nothing. I didn't see any hint of toys around (with children, you always expect some traces of toys around). Yet there were bookcases that look like they were fairly expensive, displaying a library of littera-trash from the Washtowel Babble and Crap Slaveholdery. I would bet that neither of the children have any access to real music--or have ever seen a real movie. Which might be expected from someone that is 98 and living alone, not someone in his late 30s with a wife and kids. Notably, in both cases the family was ugly, looked out of shape, and had grudges against people enjoying their lives.
Yet another, the family once had a more moderate lifestyle. Then, during the mid 1990s, they cut back on work and expenses to pio-sneer. All two of their children are regular pio-sneers, as are both parents. They had to cut out cable and most of their entertainment expenses to accomplish this. And, what is most notable is that they are going to have absolutely nothing to show for all that. Stagnation is probably worse now in that family once they decided to pio-sneer than it ever was before. (And, since that was around the time I quit regularly going to boasting sessions, I didn't see the whole thing but can imagine what it is going to become when they get old and destitute).
I definitely do not recommend selling out unless you have a definitive purpose. Leaving everything for no good reason so a religion can benefit is a sure ticket to stagnation. And, you are not even assured salvation. At least, if you sell out and move to another country (for instance, if yours becomes a tyranny or is attacked in war), you have the chance to rebuild in your new country. Which is more than can be said about these witlesses that sell out for Jehovah.
