In the unlikely event of organizational collapse: Safe Haven and Outreach Centres for JW survivors

    Imagine if the Watchtower completely collapsed. Now image millions of people who put Jehovah first suddenly see their hopes, dreams, beliefs and faith shattered.

    They have been told all their lives that there is no place else to go except Jehovah's organization.

    There will be casualties from the fall out - perhaps hundreds or thousands of suicides.

    The exJW community should do all they can, if able, to help these ones.

    They are in the best position to understand their fellow JWs. Counselors and psychologists who are unfamiliar with the religion or its demands will not understand how the JW system can destroy the mind.

    That might include opening up our homes, utilizing community centres or god forbid, churches! to assist these ones.

    If the WTBTS closed up shop nothing much would change after the initial shock. Local elders would rehash meeting parts and school schedules and keep doing the same as it was done when they were placed under ban. They would create a de-facto structure and determine and create new leaders (but I think new leaders are always at the ready, in case there was an explosion at the annual meeting and the leadership perished.)

    Truthseeker - As someone with loved ones still in this evil corporation, I agree with all of what you say.

    Most J.W.'s are oblivious to what's happening with their beloved Golden Calf of Brooklyn.

    the dubs would have to fish out all those old mags they keep under the bed and sell those.
