In the latest GB update, Losch basically scolds any JWs who are wary of masks and the new experimental vaccines, and says that they're being influenced by conspiracy theories and essentially taking a political side. Yet every week I hear individual JWs, encouraged by the organization, wishing that masks and vaccines were required by the government and that people would just stay home. So taking that extreme stance ISN'T political, because it falls in line with what the org wants, but the opposite IS political.
Now the stage is more than set for anyone who doesn't fall in line with these things to be viewed as "weak" or getting political, and it shows to be a lie their claim that these things are "personal decisions".
They supposedly are respecting the decisions of the "superior authorities" . . . So does that mean in Florida, Sweden, etc. with less restrictions JWs follow the lead of the powers that be? No. The fact is that the GB wants to show themselves to be different than Christian and conservative groups, as well as distract from their terrible history with blood transfusions, so they desperately keep saying in these videos that JWs do not refuse medical treatment, yadda yadda
