    Two observations here.

    (1) I just saw a segment on the 4 corners documentary involving Erwin Zalkin. The U.S lawyer involved in the law suites against watchtower. I couldn’t help but think how much he has exponentially aged. In the time that I have been watching him, for just under a decade, i was surprised at the accelerated rate at which he has aged. To be honest I thought he looked a rather frail, physically weak, old man. I guess dealing with WT has proven to be a tough nut to crack and has taken its toll. Just wondering if anyone else picked up on this.

    (2)For those Australians out there. Im curious about how the 4 corners documentary was received in the PIMI JW community.

    In Australia its my understanding that a "dont watch it" note was sent out so the PIMI didnt watch, but, have no doubts they will be all full- bottles on what it was about. The note may have been from the branch or not but such is the mind set of jw then they would not have watched the 4 corners program.

    Clearly, the Org has never heard of the Streisand Effect.

    When people are told not to do something they usually do it just out of curiosity`s sake .

    Individually they might sneak a look, but as a group or family, the fear control would take over and everyone around them would hear about how Satan is using this documentary to promote lies.

    And their update #7 will be used to hammer it into the mind and memory of members not to WATCH it.

    Governing Body Update #7 is being played this week in place of the 15 minute part "Keep Training Your Powers of Discernment." There is a lot coming out about WT right now and the 8 Popes knew it was coming. They have delayed court cases in many places and now time has run out, it's either go to court or settle! WT does not want rank and file or even the elders watching what is going on. Someone mentioned that this could have the Streisand Effect. A phenomenon that occurs when an attempt to hide, remove, or censor information has the unintended consequence of increasing awareness of that information. I hope that it does have this effect.

    P.S. I watched the 4 Corners documentary yesterday and I didn't hear any inaccurate statements!
