So, no fading escape in the near future, I expect.
Our fast fade has been very succesful (inactive, no meetings), but me and my wife don't mind at all if the shunning will increase. In fact, the initial interest for us during the first months of our fade has already dropped to almost zero. The only ones that still contact me now and then through mail/sms, are two brothers who are kind but also wise enough to avoid questions that might embarass us and subsequently themselves.
So, we don't know what will happen AFTER this convention of reinforced fear and relentless shunning policies. We'll wait and see. I really would like to plant more seeds of TTATT but I also know that every "righteous" JW that will bring my strategy to the attention of the elders, could trigger the first step towards the chopping block of disfellowshipping. Many elderly JW's and long serving born-in families in "my" cong here... vulnerable groups with a high paranoia level. Very tricky! I'll have to focus on the ones who are not yet completely brain dead.
