I think many older ones at Bethel have a nagging feeling that these New guys that Make up the Governing Body now at Bethel don't really give a rats ass what happens to them and that because of all the failed predictions their future is very bleak as the Corporation trims all the fat and sends them on their merry way with little hope of material benifits for all years of slaving for the corporation.
The scenario or fantacy cycle for wishful thinking is: A pattern that recurs in personal lives, in politics, in history – and in storytelling. When we embark on a course of action which is unconsciously driven by wishful thinking, all may seem to go well for a time, in what may be called the “dream stage”(1874-1914, 1916-1925, 1925-1975). But because this make-believe can never be reconciled with reality, it leads to a “frustration stage”(1975-2014) as things start to go wrong, prompting a more determined effort to keep the fantasy in being. As reality presses in, it leads to a “nightmare stage”(2014-20??) as everything goes wrong, culminating in an “explosion into reality”, when the fantasy finally falls apart.
