Movie stars travel to, or buy their own private beaches, they get invited to fun parties, and are able to buy not one, but several fast sport cars like Jay Leno. They can buy their own planes and helicopters and fly them like Harrison Ford. (How much fun would that be?)
Many love to walk the red carpet in their designer dresses and diamond necklaces which they rarely buy. They write books on romance, success, and biographies and they sell like hotcakes. They buy the best jewelry, go to all the sports games, Broadway shows, and eat at the finest restaurants in the world.
They can afford the biggest mansions on the market with a huge swimming pool, tennis court, and a theater room bigger than most average homes, And they can actually enjoy them.
And when they break the law, many times they get breaks that average people just don’t get. Even when they commit indiscretions, people tend to forgive them. (Think Tiger Woods)
On the other hand Governing Body members get room, and board but their travel is unlike other wealthy people. Their travel is for purposes of giving WT talks in certain cities---Boring----
The GB are under the constraints of their own stupid laws and visibly they have to abide by them or get disfellowshipped like Ray Franz. So no wild parties, they can’t buy their own sports car or planes. They can’t write any personal biographies and make money. They can’t use any of the billions of dollars to buy their own personal mansions. I’ve never heard of any of them attending a basketball, football, or soccer game.
If they commit an indiscretion like Tiger Woods and
the world finds out, (they are done, out into the street they go) None have any True friends, because all
their friends are conditional. Their cushy life is hanging on a very thin
thread. It’s almost like being the Kingpin in a prison.They run things in their little prison, but they are still prisoners.
Being a GB is really only one step, maybe two above a regular JW. They are trapped and slaves of their own “concept”
