How many dubs would eventually lose their siege mentality if the WTBTS would stop their propaganda?? Any guesses as to why the WTBTS needs to foster that atmosphere? Hayden Covington said it best in his own words when under oath. He was speaking of the "unity" that must be maintained.
Q. If a member of Jehovah's Witnesses took the view himself that that prophesy was wrong and said so he would be disfellowshipped?
A. Yes, if he said so and kept persisting in creating trouble, because if the whole organisation believes one thing, even though it be erronious and somebody else starts on his own trying to put his ideas across then there is disunity and trouble, there cannot be harmony, there cannot be marching. When a change comes it should come from the proper source, the head of the organisation, the governing body, not from the bottom upwards, because everybody would have ideas, and the organisation would disintegrate and go in a thousand different directions. Our purpose is to have unity.
This gives a clue as to what kind of people "flourish" in the Organization. Those who march in step without any ideas of thier own. If you believe that you are under siege, then you are more likely to blindly follow orders from your "superiors."
