How low can they go?
If I remember correctly, this is the lowest number of GB members the WT has had since the GB arrangement started. They don’t seem to be in any hurry to appoint any new GB members. They might not want any new blood that might rock the status quo. Why rock the boat with new members when you can use any of the rank and file to do your bidding. If a few more GB’s die, how many Governing Body members can the WT get away with and still function as an organization? Two, three?
