Another thing I notice is that many of the "problems" are of their own making. People are having a hard time making a living, thanks to a Rothschild-size hole in their pockets, as it is. But, when you add tons of extra rules prohibiting certain lines of work or investment, you are making the situation even worse. And they talk about how people that break those extra rules are "wicked"--so they can declare that it won't be long before they can live without having to break those rules.
Some of these rules are downright stupid. They do not want you working full time, because that leaves less time to pio-sneer. Most of the part time jobs that allow one to make a decent living are banned. Most computer programming jobs are banned because of possible ties with military applications or making "bad" video games. Running your own business (one that actually creates value) is disallowed because it takes too much pio-sneering time and violates some obscure rule. Holiday businesses are banned, as are things involving gambling, sale of tobacco, and religion. And so many other lines of work have added stress because you are supposed to decorate a place for Christmas, participate in a birthday celebration, or listen to Christmas music.
They add stupid rules in other areas. We all know about the blood. I wonder how many other medical treatments the witlesses are banned from having because they don't have enough funds (because of the rules), or because the treatments are "spiritism". Many legitimate alternative treatments are now scientifically proven, though not FDA approved--that were once thought of as being spiritism. The witlesses continue acting as if they are still spiritism. Magnetic or electrical therapy, as well as treatment involving gem stones or meditation, are among these--and they actually work some of the time.
Additionally, they add more burden to people. To start with, they don't have much money to work with because of the rules. Add to that the waste they impose, and no wonder things are so bad for the witlesses. They have to waste gas, wear and tear on the car, suit dry cleanings, excessive haircuts (getting a haircut every 4-6 weeks to meet some rule is excessive), continually changing rules on footwear and accessories, and maintaining the Kingdumb Hell. They already don't have much, and they are supposed to waste what they do have on these stupid things. And their time--pio-sneering and attending boasting sessions all waste much time.
If they were to make things easy, like Jesus promised it would be, they wouldn't be hoping so strongly for the end.
