I read somewhere that the main reason the GB did not want the Malawian JW's to buy the party card was because the money went to the war effort. Any truth to this??????
Have you read anything on JWN about the Mexico card allowed by the WTS at the same time? A search of Malawi and Mexico would prove fruitful.
I don't remember the details on why the GB was against the party cards. I just know I was very young when this was going on, about 13, and it used to give me nightmares reading the Watchtower articles describing in detail how people were being tortured, raped & killed.
Made me so angry later when I found out that it was ok in other countries such as Mexico for the JWs to buy the political party card or whatever that particular situation was. So many people tortured & killed for nothing, and no paradise to wake up to. Very sad.
