I don't understand the raging argument about something that happened months ago. It was impossible to keep up with all the developments at the time. Cedars reminds me of my well-intended teenage goofy self. People have to start someplace, though.
I don't recall the details but in my view, Malvinas did the proper thing. Anyone could see that Cedars was building up to assuming command. Every action that organization took was going to be scrutinized by the Bethel lawyers. I don't know the officers or what their intent was. Why Arizona of all states? Was there a strategic reason to incorporate in Arizona? When you know you will be scrutinized, you should make extraordinary efforts to withstand legal problems. Not complying with the Arizona statute requirements struck me as just the goofy kind of action I warned about. It may be far worse than merely goofy. It is better not to know with certainty. If you are going to do something, do it properly.
If apostates could see there was a problem, the WT could see. Moral and ethical obligations exist. Yes, behind the scenes may have been nicer. I recall very upset members here. Scads of them. Why should all the work of merit others here have done be wiped away by laziness? Let us bring down the WT - even if we become worse in the process. First Amendment rights? Let us revoke them. This do anything to destroy my enemy mindset makes me sick. For many here, there can never be a shade of gray concerning the WT. In the process of not behaving fairly, we become the monster. This is an ancient tale.
I had no idea that I was an antiactivist. No one in my entire life has ever made such a conclusion before this group. This is juvenile. If one has to err, one should err on the side of lawfulness and morality. I need to develop some distance. The WT was a wretched part of my life. Why is there always such drama?
The bottom line is that I wish everyone here the best. The WT sucks you down, then you leave. As Pete Townshend would say, welcome to apostacy, the new boss! It will suck you down, too.
