The Watchtower organization resists the idea that its workforce is comprised of employees. Instead it promotes the idea that these individuals comprise a family. Yet recently there is a directive that smacks a Totalitarian tendency. The family has been asked to reduce itself. Pretty tough choice!!!
My best guess is this request will lead to more than a few disenchanted individuals who realize they've been removed from the family by their former family members. So much for sharing the hardship as a firmly resolved and unified family. The family unit has been asked to reduce itself!
