    A quick note on Frankfurt School. Am still watching 2nd video, MeanMrMustard - don't know if the speaker will bring this out in his talk but Frankfurt School came about because Marxism failed.

    Stalin bought the Russians a lots of tractors and the Russian peasants were moral in the Christian sense, due to their culture. So although life in Stalinist Russia was not easy, it succeeded in a number of ways because the population were Christian.

    In the face of Christianity Marxism failed. The Frankfurt School considered that Marxism failed because it had focussed on property in the financial/economic sense. What was needed was a cultural attack so that property was not just a house or a car, but a wife and children. The family. The sense of property and propriety were to be attacked in a new manner via the media. Hollywood, BBC (which George Orwell alluded (as the Ministry of Truth) to in his book 1984).

    I approached the Governing Body on the purely scientific matter of the number 3 actually being the number 3 and not the number 11. This was in relation to Dan 1:1, not the trinity.

    Gotcha. Just wondering.

    A few more really great videos, if you want to watch. Just go to YouTube and search “Mike Nayna”. He makes documentaries. He created a documentary of the Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying meltdown on the Evergreen campus. The documentary comes in three parts and each is about 30 min. So you have to have some time to sink into it. It is produced very well. I don’t know how someone could watch the documentary and not be crushed by the sheer irrationality of it all.

    But you all these videos outline very well the topic of this thread... you can see clearly where the tension is coming from.

    Thank you, I'll check out those videos.

    I don’t know how someone could watch the documentary and not be crushed by the sheer irrationality of it all.

    I understand your sense of disbelief. But from what I have seen of the elders, otherwise intelligent, friendly people act normal up to the point where reality and the truth is perceived by them as a threat.

    I have seen it most starkly when someone who I think KNEW Watchtower's doctrines were rubbish from the start, was presented with the truth (ie 3 is not 11). The truth is going to reveal something about them which they don't want to be seen. It's like a thief caught with his hand in the till. So what the thief does is, he seeks to convince all other onlookers that the shop keeper is the thief. If they refuse to believe him. He burns the shop down and says the shop never existed and the onlookers are mad for ever believing it did. If no one takes any action against this thief and arsonist, he'll carry on like that. Therefore, everyone had better prepare to view the world his way or have their own houses burnt down and their stuff stolen.

    If anyone gets upset by theft of arson, the words theft and arson get reframed. In Watchtower world maybe they'd be reframed as 'privileges'. Yes it is absurd but once you get to this level, you realise how that which is often viewed as common sense is actually Christianity. People have taken commnon sense values for granted but now others are challenging that view. And the questions are 'why is something wrong?' What is 'wrong?'

    Yes, many laws do rest on Judeo-Christian values. Now here's a question, is attacking such laws Antisemitc? If not, why not?

    Putting out information which stirs up agression by group of people 'A' against group of people 'B', isn't that a hate crime? If not why, why not?

    Soft on crime attitudes by some politicians. Being soft on criminals never ever works. Just like Communism and socialism never ever work. But some never ever seem to get it though their thick skulls these facts. Stop and frisk worked when I lived in NYC.

    Hard sentences and enforcing the law works. Nothing else will. Criminals do not suddenly do right because you are soft on crime they do more. Giving druggies needles and a safe place to shoot up does nothing but encourage drug use. The only way that would work is if you gave them all the heroin they can use and let them OD. That will fix the issue.

    Politicians need funding - but the people who do the funding may ask you to back being soft on some aspects of crime in exchange for that money.

    "Idea Laundering" through "Grievance Studies" really reveals a lot to what is going on. The vacuum created by Modernism was filled with Post-Modernism. In short, a lack of a spiritual practice caused a hunger which is now being filled with this new religion.

    The first video on page 5, posted by MeanMrMustard - at about 4:06 one of the men explains that asking for evidence is racism.

    That's just like Watchtower, only they don't call it racism they call it apostacy.

    How often did we read this scripture to folks on the door?

    (2 Timothy 3:1-3) . . .But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement. . .
