    Does anyone else see the similarities between The Wizard of Oz and The GB?

    It's kind of like when the curtain is removed and you find out it's all smoke and mirrors. Plus Dorothy wakes up at the end!

    Let's hope JWtv ends the same way!

    Yes many here have found the curtain scene "revealing". Have you ever read Animal Farm by George Orwell? The WT follows the same pattern as the pigs. George knew what he was writing about!

    Pay no attention the GB behind the curtain...

    Are the elders the flying monkeys? :D

    Try these also:
    The Village (M. Night Shyamalan)
    The Matrix

    the example was used against me as evidence in my JC on the charge of apostasy,( I had used the example previously) I was finding it all rather amusing

    Let`s not forget George Orwell`s book "1984" or even StarTreks The Borg .Movie.

    Yep, always thought so. It kinda ruins the movies when I see that perspective while at the same time enlightening me into something not so unique or truthful anymore but pretty much same old.

    The teachings and promises of jw's is much like the Wizard of OZ! They are works of fiction, born of the wild imaginations of creative men. Same plot---good verses evil. Good wins and we all live happily ever after!

    just saying!
