Thank you so much for your contributions to the forum and your explanation of what has happened and what IS currently happening in Eastern Europe.
Yes, repressive societies always hate the educated because they are the hardest to fool and this is ultimately why the Witnesses are against college - meanwhile they hypocritically look for educated people for some spots in bethel.
The moral of the story is: if your education can benefit the JW religion, that's okay...However, IF the education is to give you a better life, that's bad. You should starve to death instead.
Any JW lurkers here:...just get your education and keep quiet about it. Then, get out of this ridiculous religion and live your life!
