After reading and seeing so many detailings of the dealings with people in this religion, I have to wonder how to get people who are just extremely asleep. Reasoning doesn't seem like it works, there needs to be some kind of plug pull event, like the leaders doing something so uterly stupid that it causes the immediate downfall of the entire religion. But because I am naturally curious I want to know from people who have more experience with JW structure why they seem to have a resistance to an event like this? I have a friend who I maybe have a yearly convo with from another country (in Asia) who is one and it just doesn't seem like any of these barrages of negative occurences are effecting their perception of the org. I mean I see so many bethel HQ stories where its pretty obvious there is no super natural force guiding the place, but still they chug along. Why is this the case?
Unfortunately to me, the only way to release a significant amount of the regular people in this cult is for some kind of "plug pull" event. I know individuals may have their own "plug pull," but I'm wondering about an overall one. I'm not particularly sure how they are still able to manage a slow death into irrelevance rather than a complete wipe out.
I'm assuming there are many who are using it as a social hub, have most of their investment in it physically as well as completely brainwashed ones. The heads seem very VERY stupid from what I've seen, so I'm confused as to how they haven't tripped over the plug to their own matrix. How would such an event effect people I wonder.
