    'Course it does.

    Otherwise they'd have to rely on compassion, decency, and generosity...

    ...and then how would the assholes ever get anywhere?

    Back pre-fade, once I realized... really realized... that that was what the WTS actually wanted, I fell into a very deep funk.

    It probably IS about obedience training and manipulation which is another reason I don’t miss the religion.

    Back in the day I once volunteered with friends for food service and had to be there at a very early hour.

    Naturally, I had to put my things on a seat (not my handbag, of course. I’d have to be out of my mind). When I returned to my seat a few hours later, a bunch of little bastards had taken my stuff off my one seat and put them on the ground. I guess I should’ve been grateful they weren’t stolen. Very frustrating experience.

    Needless to say, after a very exhausting hot humid day, I decided way back then never to volunteer for anything in the religion again and I never did.
