but then you also condemn them when they DO change in a positive way
What evidence do you have that they've changed in a positive way? You keep mentioning (you've done it on at least one other thread) the type/antitype change as if it's a noble change that shows honesty and transparency. I don't think it is. I think all their changes are for strategic, selfish reasons. I think the org changed the type/antitype stuff to make the situation better for itself. It realizes that it can't defend many of its teachings so it's simplifying so it won't have to face challenges and questions it can't answer.
I still condemn them for the dumbing down. They used to chastise us for not seeking the deeper stuff; now they say it's not necessary. The problem is that they lay claim to the one and only truth. The truth doesn't change. Their truth is whatever they say at a given point in time. JWs have to accept it or face the consequences of not accepting it. They're dumbing down for selfish reasons - because they realize they're just guessing and they can't defend themselves.
* "The Society finds crazy Types and Antitypes in everything, where it doesn't exist. Way too many deep layers of nonsense being taught."
* (After the New Light): "The Society is way too simplistic and dumbed down. What happened to the deep study?"
That's an illogical argument. You're comparing two different things. You make it seem as though one day we're chastising them for being too deep with their type/antitype teaching, and then the next day when they drop it, we chastise them for dropping it and being too simple. That is not the case.
Your two bulleted points don't relate to each other.
Yes, they're now backing off on the type/antitype stuff. We (I think most of us) are not condemning them for changing. We condemn them for the fact that they were wrong all those years and made us waste our precious time studying stuff that turned out to be bologne. And they would have DF'd us for disagreeing with it when it was still in vogue. We condemn them for another example of their wrongness when they've claimed to have the truth for decades.
Yes, many of have condemned them for the general dumbing down - not slacking off on the type/antitype stuff as you indicate. I believe, as I indicate above, that their dumbing down is for selfish reasons. It's part of their rebranding, which itself is for selfish reasons.
The fact that I might chastize one for making too much out of something simple (like the type/antitype stuff) doesn't mean he should then go and make everything simple. There are some things that are simple and some that are not. You confuse two unrelated points.
