First, let's look at what counsel is published by the Watchtower and required as proper behavior in the congregation.
*** g88 9/8 p. 20 Should I Tell On My Friend? ***Understandably, you may not feel you have the spiritual qualifications to readjust an erring friend. But would it not make sense to see to it that the matter is reported to someone who is qualified to help? Why neglecting to do so could even make you ‘a sharer in his sins’! (1 Timothy 5:22; compare Leviticus 5:1.) It could call into question your own loyalty to God and to his righteous standards.—Psalm 18:25.
*** g70 12/8 p. 27 “You Must Not Testify Falsely” ***Anyone who knew of serious wrongdoing and failed to report it became a partner to the wrongdoer. By pretending that he had seen or heard no wrongdoing, he was living a lie and was just as much in the wrong as one who under oath would testify falsely against his brother.—Lev. 5:1; Ps. 50:18.
In 1939, in Nazi Germany, 90% of German children belonged to the Hitler Youth program.
The Nazi Party knew that families—private, cohesive groups not usually under political sway—were an obstacle to their goals. The Hitler Youth was a way to get Hitler’s ideology into the family unit, and some members of the Hitler Youth were commanded to snitch out their parents when they behaved in ways not approved of by the Reich.
In Mao's Communist China, children were called upon to report any conversations which were against the State or Communist party loyalty.
Loyalty to one's own family, let it be noted, is deeply bred into the culture. Therefore, in order to overcome this loyalty, children at an early age were removed from the home and indoctrinated before being returned to the family.
Today, those children have grown up and continue to obey their youthful indoctrination by eavesdropping on other people's business!
As I watched this video on YouTube this morning, I was struck by the fact that JW's and Nazis and Chinese Communists all have something insidious in common.
