mikeflood - "The thing that worries me is how the Borg is gonna react if there's some kind of 'incident', are they gonna start a message of doom? Are they going to circle the wagons? That's what the article says too."
A few here have theorized that if there actually was some kind of "incident" (like, say, loss of tax-exemption in the US or somesuch), the leadership will just quietly bugger off to the Caymans where the bOrg has millions stashed away (not joking), and have the WTS heavily imply that they've been
raptured "called away to heaven", in no small part to misdirect the R&F away from the fact that said "incident" is not actually going down according to their End-Times script (or they could - worse-case scenario - pull a small-scale Jonestown at Warwick).
The "message of doom" to follow has been unofficially suggested for years, and recently been made official... basically, loyal JWs will be expected to go D2D and tell everyone else that it's too late, they're all fucked, neener-neener-neener (terrific way to get the R&F "persecuted", BTW )
And from what I can see, they're already circling the wagons.
