****They are there simply to recite what they think is helpful information. Their "do more" solution, as you well know, is typical jw-speak because that's all they know.****
It is the this very fact that gives each elder the personal justification for their actions.
They are absolved from any personal responsibility, they are simply following the 'societies' instructions. Never mind if the advice fits the circumstance, it is the approved message, the latest understanding, so lovingly provided from 'the mother organization'.......PUKE big time.
That is why JT's analogy of 'cheese and cracker men' fit so well. They are simply just like part time grocery store sample hawker's, who have been hired to sell the 'cheese'. The 'cheese' will fix any problem just eat more of it....here sister sad and depressed, have another 'cheese', you know it will make you feel better.
LIke good hired hands they complete their assigned tasks, walking away from every encounter saying to themselves....how well they performed their job.
They set up their little 'sample stands' and give out the same crappy cheese, no matter the issue or dietary needs of their customer's (victims).
Why do I know this is true..........I was one of the 'cheese and cracker' men. And didn't see how BAD my cheese really smelled!!!
No more cheese please.
