I met an old friend last evening, a great guy, an XJW for longer than me.
During a conversation about our experiences since fading (neither of us are DA'd or anything) we got to talking about the young JW's.
His wife is still in, and he has two lovely daughters who he is trying to teach the art of Critical Thinking so that they can make the right choice in the future.
What worries him though is that he is convinced almost all young JW's do not give a "proverbial" if it is the Truth or not, they simply wish to remain in it because of the social aspects, loads of friends and activities that they feel safe partaking in etc etc.
So how do you convince these young people that they would have a better life if they left ?
They see it as losing all their friends, and being alone and trying to build new relationships, which is mostly true.
How do we convince them to make the Leap ?
Should they ?
