The Saturday drama impressed me. Of course, there is a lot to say about the organization, this professional produced movie in a "true story" scenario, gave me the insight that hope is important for suffering people. Hope is better than no hope.
I know that the movie was made to create this effect on people.
It's not a bad thought, that hope is better than no hope, and this idea is still between my ears.
Hope isn't the problem, even false hope can be a comfort for a grieving person. The problem is that WT inserts itself into the equation so that the person's hope is based entirely around serving the WT and it's interest. Who wouldn't want to see their dead relatives again? Unlike other religions though JWs teach that only loyal JWs will be able to entertain that idea.
Taken on it's own the drama didn't have a bad message but in the context of the rest of the convention it was clearly toxic and manipulative.
