It happens without warning. You have a stroke. You get MS. You are in a car accident.
They put you in the hospital. A month or so passes.... you're not getting out, friend-o !
You can't walk or take care of yourself. You have to p*ss into a bag. You're more alone than than you've ever been before, in life. You're f**king terrified.
They stick you in a nursing home that passes inspection thru handshakes and political influence. The friends in your Kingdom Hall visit a few times. They lose interest after a while saying, "I have to get my time in !". The elders show up to find out if you put 15 minutes in service this month or because the C.O. might ask about you.
Where are your children? Where are your grandkids? Why aren't they here?
They're not here - and they're not volunteering to take care of you in their homes because you obeyed a cold-hearted, distant cabal of cult leaders - who never need to worry about healthcare or money.
In other words, YOU SHUNNED YOUR KIDS !! You know, your last line of defense, your blood relatives.
This is your final reward for obeying the Watchtower. Now you know why the Governing Body has to keep nagging and nagging about shunning people. Some Witnesses are getting "enlightened" and that scares the sick, twisted men in command of this horror.
