Due to my dad's occupation, I had the experience to live in various N.E. States and that meant attending different congregations. Traveling become a way of life for me since childhood even though I spent my early years in Beantown.
Aside from failing to show love for one another, a dominant quality that I have observed among the witnesses is this talent/ability to CONTROL others. Mind you, this IS applicable everywhere.
To control others 'succesfully' one only needs to be a cunning manipulator. My mom was a hard taskmaster. My experience with her made it easy for me to pick out people who control/manipulate others. Since my early-teens, no one, but no one, has ever abused me again! The witnesses are control freaks and they don't know it, why? They need to see the man behind the curtain in the 'Wizard of Oz'. Thank's Gary for showing the picture.
