May 22 Awake! has typical article on terrorism; trouble is sign of imminent end, etc, etc. As usual it shows how bad the internet is by narrating how computer networks are increasingly the target of "terrorist" activity. But in the "Young People Ask..." section, on keeping in contact with your (JW!) grandparents, "Dara" is quoted saying "They take an interest in my life, and we call or E-mail each other almost every week". Not only does this quote encourage young people to use email, it shows elderly people as being quite capable too! It could be argued that the editorial comment "E-mail and phone calls have their place, but don't underestimate the power of an old fashioned hand-written letter" means that they are arguing against use of email, but phone calls too? Since when has the 'Tower ever discouraged use of the phone?
So what's going on here? More Brooklyn hypocrisy? Or is there some factional battle going on within the Writing Department? Or am I reading too much into it?
