    When I was a JW this is the exact sort of thing that would have really bothered me. I remember going to a Rainbow Vacuum "sell our products" pitch and feeling incredibly awkward at how similar it was to a the weekly Book Study.

    Look very much like propaganda pictures from WTBTS literature. Yet another flavour of totalitarian ideology.

    Pictures from Soviet Union would typically have lot more red colored elements in them. While Nazi propaganda would be showing strong young men in snappy black uniforms from Hugo Boss ;-)

    Pretentious and designed pictures of propaganda, the reality is the country mostly lives in severe poverty and depression in comparison to most countries.

    JW broadcasting.

    Yeah, it looks like a JW district convention XD

    Well, the WTBTS is a spiritual North Korea.

    Oh, nice. Photos from the Pyongyang national convention of JW.

    I am going to send this to my JW parents. As to whether they'll get the joke, I have severe doubts...

    Holy shitballs.

    If the Org had published these pics and stated that they were taken at a convention in Asia somewhere, I would have completely believed it.

    The first two or three pictures are fairly normal/convincing but holy cow those last ones are so obviously staged. You could take the ones with the flowers and the printing press/photo gallery and stick them on jw.borg and I would never be able to tell the difference.
