I am going to make this short. I ran into a older JW women who I have known my whole life. She is pushing 80 and will never change. Well anyway the subject of retiring came up and I mentioned how pioneering and going to Bethel did not give a 401 plan and that I will probably have to work until I am at least 75.
Now this women in all fairness is a really nice person and is just totally mind controlled by the cult. She really does not have any true reasoning ability. I totally got that from talking with her last week and it made me sad. Her husband is not a JW and they have a pension and SS money, They say they struggle but they do fine.
So without missing a beat she said just stop working and go on welfare. I was just blown away. She said that at least one JW lady get better care than those who support themselves.
I tried to argue with her about how taking from the government was wrong when I had chosen my life and I had made the decision to pioneer, etc and that it was not fair to expect others to support me now through taxes but I just let it go realizing that it was impossible to reason with her. She was going to think what she thinks and she sees nothing wrong with using the system.
I just could never take like that but that truly is the JW mind set.
Speaking of which it is off to work for me now.
