Toward anyone actually thinking of more than fantasizing taking anybody out:
First, we are better than that. To quote Nietzsche, “He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.”
Second, such a course would not do any good. It would create a ‘martyr’ to rally around and feed the persecution complex. It would confirm in the minds of JWs the picture of a “mental diseased” apostate and close many ears. Think of the powerful example of Ray Franz whose kind and moderate tone has won far more hearts and minds, than it he had been the “angry, bitter” stereotype that many of us assumed he was.
Third, the Watchtower can simply replace GB members with people as equally as delusional as the GB that proceeded them. To case in point, we are now on GB 2.0…the natural deaths of the original GB have not altered things for the good. How would an untimely death help the situation?
The tide is slowly turning. The most effective weapon we have against the Watchtower is the truth about the ‘truth’. Let us wield it in the manner Ray Franz did.
