A different way to look at the Organization.
Suppose that the Organization was a country of 8 million or so. Given that JW's believe that God will one day slaughter everyone else and leave them to inherit the globe, this is a fair matter to think about.
Would "WatchtowerLand" be a Theocracy..... like Iran?
Would it be ruled by a group of old men........like the former Soviet Union?
Would it have public executions..... like North Korea or Saudi Arabia?
Would women have few if any rights ......like Pakistan or Afghanistan?
Would its economy be overrun with corruption based on cronyism ......like Nigeria?
Would its workers be poorly productive, "just putting in time" .... like former Communist nations?
Would its children be subject to sexual abuse, concealed by old men......like the Vatican?
Would it claim to be progressing simply because it had a growing population/publishers ..... like much of Africa?
Would it try to suppress or punish 'defectors'....... like North Korea?
That one point about 'growth' is especially important - why should population growth in a nation mean that the nation is progressing? Is that true of most poor nations you are familiar with? Does progress mean something more than just 'more people'?
In summary, I conclude this: If WatchtowerLand was a country, I wouldn't want to live there - and more and more people seem to feel the same way.
