I have no formal education. Much of the legal jargon is beyond me. I just figure things out by context and repeated reading, and several trips to an online dictionary. You don't have to be the most " educated " to smell a rat. Just keep at it.
This mirrors my own thoughts while reading through the brief:
" Also, especially when they have constructed a world where there is a clear structure of authority and expected obedience which includes all members of the congregation and a definite hierarchy of elders -> ministerial servants -> men -> women -> children. Women and children are taught to respect and obey 'brothers' in general, not just their parents and the congregation elders (although these even more so) and that is a very dangerous world to construct if you then refuse to take any responsibility for policing it and ensuring that the power you have granted to individuals isn't abused or used to enable abuse of others."
For JW's it comes down to strict obedience. You must obey without hesitation because it could mean your life. Even if you don't " get it ", you are to obey. Listen, obey, and be blessed, when you hear God's will expressed. What is God's will? Whatever the GB says and then filters down through the hierarchy! They want to be in charge, but they refuse to accept that they have created a special relationship with their adherents.
Thank GOD that the " worldly " jury was infected with the spirit of the world... I hope the WTBTS's fate is sealed. I am keeping my fingers crossed because they are such excellent liars. I will be reading this for quite some time.
