Let's face it, thousands of people in one place together can be mesmerizing. Watching some of the videos for the Witnesses conventions this last week, from all over the world you get the sense of what total brain washing can do.
Happy people waving banners saying "See you in paradise."
A scene of two preteen brown children getting baptized as kingdom songs are being playing.
I remember the crowds going crazy when a new book came out or when all the lights come on at night around the platform area at the at the big international conventions like the one in New York in 1958. It reminded of the torch light parades in Nazi Germany.
As they say "A people together for one purpose!"
I remember the time when I was a part of all that. The feeling of "who can stop us now!"
I was so full of myself and assured of my future as a good Nazi Jehovah's Witness I would be loyal forever.
I would and did anything they told me to do.
Powerful and scary stuff for sure!
