You have a point there about "forces" who won't stand idly by while other JWs who disobeyed the religion's advice and got a college education (and kept privileges) while others did not get an education and are suffering.
But, it's not just about "privileges" within the silly congregation. They can take their privileges and shove them! What good are so-called privileges if people can't pay bills and are worrying about retirement and surviving??
Looking back, I consider "good standing in the congregation" and popularity to be utter nonsense and it certainly would not be paying my expenses now!
I expect things are going to get bad in the congregations with people who did NOT get college or a decent job getting very strident and panicky. I'm glad to be away from all the fallout from the religion's fiasco that they caused to their members.
