Building layoffs & JW calendar 2016 theme

    Do you get it? The theme of the JW calendar 2016 is building, building, building. All the calendar pictures are about building WTS property with cheap labor witnesses.

    And then, just before the year approaches the building has halted.

    It seems a short term decision.

    A strange correlation again.

    LOL, that will remind everyone every month - "hey, whatever happened to all that building?"

    That does support the idea that all these cutbacks are desperate, unplanned measures. Which feeds the big speculation monster that lives on this site:)

    Surely they had time to change the calendar even if it was a last minute decision. What on earth are they playing at?

    Do the pictures actually feature building projects that have been abandoned?

    What used to really get under my skin were the pictures of young shapely babes in construction outfits sporting ponytail hair styles and looking yummy. I think they do this on purpose to keep males in the org, the promise of sex and marriage for geeks even.

    How bizarre!

    I think they are toying with the r&f; they're teasing them. "Let's see how much more dumbly obedient they can be".

    When you have absolute power over 8 million people, it is a great temptation to "play" with that power, to see just how far you can go with it; else it's boring.

    When you're a god to a lot of people, you tend to play god.

    They advocate cognitive dissonance.

    • We're not building anything anymore. However, we're definitely still building things.
    • We don't shun, however we totally do shun.
    • We don't claim to be prophets, however we're totally prophets.
    • Don't add or take anything away from the scriptures, however here's a bunch of books with a bunch of extra rules. Follow them or die. It's totally up to you.
    • You have free will. Just do whatever we say or else.
    • We don't have child molesters, except for all of the child molesters we have.
    • Love your neighbor, unless they're not a JW or are a former JW, then hate your neighbor. But still love them. Just treat them hatefully.

    etc. etc. etc.
