It seems like lots of people have big dreams of 'destroying the WatchTower'. It's usually linked to a story of how they were wronged and want some revenge. Great.
But is it?
Do these 'in your face' attempts to convince people that the truth isn't the truth really have an effect?
I'm convinced that you cannot reason with anyone about religious belief because it is not based on reason or any logical argument whatsoever. With JWs you're also battling against the pre-planted control mechanism that has prepared them against people trying to convince them that it isn't true which means that attempts at convincing people simply become more evidence of the truth.
This doesn't mean you can't plant seeds and ask thought provoking questions but I believe that people can only free themselves and usually only wake up in response to things happening in their own lives or those of their friends and family. Just as people normally only become witnesses because of personal issues and life events, they leave for the same reason*.
Because back to the first point - most of us are here because of things that happened to us. I don't remember hearing stories of anyone saying "yes, life as a JW was going great ... but then I read a banner someone was waving outside an assembly saying that it was lies and that woke me up to the truth".
When people start to doubt and question things then they are on their way out, they are waking up, they start to search for information and find it. What is most effective is having information available and reasoned arguments and evidence about the WTS and their beliefs and practices, things to show the person that they are not alone, that it isn't just "them" or their congregation or isolated incidents.
Making videos etc... to 'convince' active JWs is not effective at convincing them IMO although it probably is useful for the people involved as a type of catharsis.
What do you think? Am I wrong? Were you 100% rock solid but one day read an apostate article and BAM ... out.
* of course, there will be exceptions to every rule but a single swallow doesn't make a summer. There are religious nuts who do go doolally over all the doctrinal and bible stuff but I think they are very few and far between and the majority fake spiritual interest because it's expected and everyone else seems to be doing it. There will no doubt be a few who were convinced by apostacy but generally I think most people leave because of experiences.
