After reading some experiences, I have found that this organization has had quite a big change in its operations within the last decade. Back when I was talking to the ocassional witnesses at a local hotspot I remember some of them having respectable intelligence.
What I want to know though is those who have been aquainted with who they felt were more educated and independent in thinking, how they handled the rapid changes.
Did they give a benefit of doubt to the organization despite the clear signs that there is no solid respect for "truth" and its really just like other religions?
Did anyone experiences others that had wake up calls and leave? Did most choose to fade? Did others make statements before leaving?
I had researched that their HQ had a lot of layoffs and people were homeless and were lied to by the head honchos. Did this have any large scale effect? Was it kept under raps and spun?
What is interesting about these new guys I've met, is that when I talked to them, they don't seem to be intelligent individually but merely memorize talking points, its not a conclusion they made personally. I'm sure some of them had to have been aware of this.
