In a book I read a while back by the sociologist Randall Collins he says truly powerful people don't get angry because they get what they want in other ways, and he shows a picture of two runners where the one who's losing looks at the girl that passes her rather than ahead at the finish line, guess she doesn't wanna win the race after all. I want to apply these to the Governing Body and their actions, the pattern of their actions, in printing all the hateful rhetoric against people like us and why l'm pretty sure, pretty damn confident in fact, it's all downhill from here... thanks to them and them alone.
The moment you let somebody get in your head and let them stay there they beat you, they win, they establish power, We got in their heads, they know we present a threat to them, we won't shut up, we're more brazen than we used to be, we're in the news, we're on TV, we're online we're at conventions we're in the Kingdom Halls, hell we're just about everywhere. Yeah, we don't have this completely down yet, sometimes we come on too strong or do something stupid, and I'm pointing the finger at myself here too, but for the most part we know how to fight this battle: we drag them into the light when they wanna hide in the dark like jackals lurking in the woods sneaking up on weak and wounded deer. That's why they're always ranting and raving about us in their magazines, throwing little verbal tantrums and hissyfits like the spoiled brats they are, got used to their cushy lifestyle and they're afraid they'll lose it. They focus and fixate on us, we're in their head and they can't get us out. And all they do by printing those ad hominem attacks and pedantic name-calling is raise people's curiosity, at least, the one's who know something's wrong already and can and will wake up when they're good and ready.
More people than we think already got a good measure on them, that's why the Governing Body started hurting for money in 2015 and revealed themselves as the televangelists they made themselves so they could see their image on the screen like some new world Narcissus, what fools, they have no charisma no charm no confidence, they either drone in monotone or look downright bizarre and fake, Stephen Lett anyone, none of them can compete with a Joel Olsteen type, they don't have the looks either... and we all know it. Gerrit Losch won't appear in court but tells school children to debate their teachers on evolution? Tony Morris flees a journalist in the street after making up some pretense about going upstairs to preach the good news of the kingdom? Pitiful. Just pitiful. They're no Charles Taze Russell openly debating ministers and writing editorials, putting his name to a photodrama he played all around the United States, they're no Joseph Rutherford broadcasting his caustic speeches all over the radio like James Penton put it. They have no pride they have no spine, they're no longer an asset to the company. They wallow in anger. We're deep in their head and we ain't coming out until we drive them absolutely mad.
We will win in the long run as long as we fight in the light and play by the rules, not their rules but the state's rules because enough states are getting wise to them too, and soon I expect they'll take them down slowly, revoke their charity status, hell, maybe lock a few of them up even, the Australian Royal Commission already made them look like fools and called them out on their cruelty and nonsense. I can't wait till more states climb on board the ship we chartered and sail into a new and brighter future.
We've already won. To the vast apostate army whether we call ourselves that or not: all hail the underdogs, all hail the new kings.
