That quote from the August 3, 1928 magazine helps explain why jws and xjws often make very good salespeople.
You are right Terry. With the Watchtower Society it has always been about selling junk and not necessarly to the public. Even if a JW goes out all day and no one takes the books or magazines the Watchower still wins because those books and magazines have already paid for poor mislead sucker who is wasting his or her day trying to sell them. And if they happen to place a few then the Wt gets to double dip and get paid again for the literature. Like MLM people who have a garage full of soap they thought they were good to sell every JW has a room full of old magazines and book they thought they could place.
