Just as the old saying goes, "they made their bed, now they have to sleep in it". They are going to hold the organization together with all their might, anyway they can. Becoming even more restrictive and controlling is just one way. If something happens to their publishing company, they will blame it on Satan. Or,.....these darn apostates out here on the net, infecting the sheep!
I have genuiene empathy for those who are so full of fear, that even after finding out they might have been misled, they continue to do as they always have. There is one in my family who relys on whatever an Elder tells her. If she questions something, they tell her how she should think, and so she does. She told me recently "the truth is all I have". I let her have her faith and her hope, because it is her life.
To a large extent this is true of many people all over the world that make up the millions of people that the organization controls The majority can't let go of their own accord, because they are terribly insecure and afraid. They have to self confidence, thanks to the mind-conditioning of the borg. They cannot imagine life without the organization.
I'm so thankful to be free of such mind control, arent' you? I can think for myself. I can have an opinion. Who says we are apostates here?
