Pure speculation here but I'm wondering if - with the numbers flat-lining - that the GB will stop giving country by country stats, or perhaps at least some of the statistics.
We used to get a monthly stat in the KM - then that was "simplified" to "highlights". I.e. only the "good" stuff. Then with the new CLAM workbook, no stats at all.
I wonder if the yearbook will soon only contain "positive" spun stats. After all if pioneers are really dropping and baptisms are down and congregations are down and memorial attendance is down and partakers are up and growth has become negative that would let those pesky meddling apostates frame mischief against the borg.
How would it be spun so as to not give ammunition to opposers to "persecute" bunker hiding JW's with?
