    dropoffyourkey, a 1947 coffee table book would not have had the resources to cut and paste as we do today. As for the language, it suits the time period, shortly after the war when emotions are high.

    "The Watchtower explains the Theocratic Government".


    And most of those explanation of the 1940's have been sent to the scrap heap, relegated to the category of out-dated "old light".

    "Pathetic" indeed.

    I found the book on Amazon, not much information about it though:

    It was published by Harper & Brothers, which became HarperCollins.

    ADCMS, tell me about it. I think that for most modern JWs even reading a 40s era WT magazine would create a mind-storm of cognitive dissonance beyond what they could handle.


    That girl in front of Beard Mc Scruff looks hot! I would have invited her over for cocktails and sandwich-board modeling!! You can keep Granny from Beverly Hillbillies...

    I think it's interesting how the JWs are grouped with the pro-Nazis in this book. Now I understand why they were called "pathetic."

    They certainly weren't neutral, as they like to claim. It was their antiwar agitation that brought down persecution on them from the govt.

    He was a jw babe magnet. The person behind, w the fan, is he a dude? He appears to be hoping that some of the schwartz will rub off on him. To start w, he(?) needs to lose the fan.

    How odd. Last week I saw that guy wandering the boardwalk at Ocean City, MD, muttering to himself.


    They are all dead now.
