They don't need to go to meetings if they can just watch a video in their own home. Don't they all watch a video anyway at the kh ?
Congregation Reassignments in Ohio?
yeah with all the broadcasting-hype all they can do is watch those cheesy videos.
Why don't sell all of the KH, all of them. The elders and MS could then rent a very small office in town to keep the little stuff like books and magazines, remember that now they don't need too much space !
Then the elders could broadcast the meeting to the RF, (make them log to control, of course). THAT SAVES MONEY. Leave physical meetings just for conventions. Just brainstorming.
If the rank and file have done what the watchtower wants and have got a low income job they will be really pushed to find the extra money to get to the kingdom hall.

You have to be out of your freakin' cotton-picking mind to be driving 50 or miles each way on a winter night when the windchills are in the -40 and below and endangering your family. Can't blame the JW's who think practically and say ''Nah, forget it'' ,''not safe''. Good thinking, practical people think like this. Survivors.
Oh, but they will remember all the stories of the ones who walked 75 miles each way, three times per week, over crocodile infested rivers, and lion infested forests, past army troops armed with automatic weapons searching for JDubs to use for target practice...and just blindly do it.

yeah, something about following instructions if they don't seem 'strategic' or something like that, blind obedience.
At some point, the light bulb has to come on for most dubs, right?

With a little bit of logical thinking and ''critical thinking'', the light bulb has to come on at some time.
At some point, the light bulb has to come on for most dubs, right?Right??
1975 - no light bulb
A generation is "2 overlapping groups" and can span 180+ years - no light bulb
Taking blood "components" is a sin worthy of eternal destruction, but taking blood "fractions" is A-OK - no light bulb
Your Kingdom Hall loan is forgiven, replaced by a never-ending monthly demanded payment - no light bulb
Dozens of branch offices closed, Awake magazine reduced from 768 to 48 pages per year, 100+ year tradition of Yearbooks abandoned, etc etc. etc. ad nauseum & infinitum - no light bulb
Why would "we're closing your Kingdom Hall, drive somewhere else" cause any such "light bulb" moment?
Congregations are being merged in every place. It's evidently a marvelous provision from jehober, of course, that the organization is shrinking!
JW's are the Sears and Roebuck of religions here in the USA. They're closing stores because of poor sales (attendance), poor marketing, and failure to introduce new, exciting, quality products. Can't wait to see the final clearance sale for the wtbts. They have already emptied the shelves on all their "life saving", prophetic publications and now they are selling off stores (kh's). Just cheap junk for sale now at you local kh.
The berea kingdom hall will be closing. Its only 20 years old .The org. Probabably figured they could get the most $$$ of all the k.h.'s in the area.most of the congregates will be going to Strongsville .for those familiar with the area.
