The definition of priming the pump, is put to water manually into the casing of the pump so that it will create a seal and draw the water up. It's a term used for economics but I like to use it when I am trying to hopefully help a JW, escape. I view it as a long term endeavor.
Whenever there are videos for upcoming conventions, I'll try to work the main theme into a conversation with them. Since they haven't seen the videos, they don't know that I'm "priming the pump" by putting a realistic spin on the info in them. So that when they do see the vids, there might be a hmmm? moment.
The WT does this themselves. All the questions and accusations that sincere JW's (and ex JW's) send or phone into them, are examined. Are ex Jw's convincing the still in's that there is something wrong and it bothered their conscience? An article comes out telling all the regular JW's that following their own conscience is bad, you can't trust it but you can trust the GB's conscience. So the WT effectively strikes first, priming the JW mind to reject a reasonable argument.
So I decided that one stone after the other, can make a bridge. And if I can strike first by using the vids that people leak here, I will.
Has anyone else tried this?
