The obsessive devotion, unchain utopia, natural corruption, etc. are songs by the metal band Epica, not audiomachine. :) Although it's still shocking to know they would use such "worldly" music in videos. Have they ever did something like this before? Its undeniable that they, at least the GB are awake because why else would you be looking for such an emotional response? As Oldskool mentioned in another topic, they are desperate. Their doctrines no longer make any sense so they have to pull at peoples heartstrings instead.
The last video in the 2016 convention...
I wonder if they paid royalties to use that music.....
I sent them an email as well. I got a response that they are looking to the use of this song and were not aware that it was being used at a convention that encourages shunning. How epic would it be if they have to change the convention program?
The whole thing reminded me of the Simpsons episode about the 'Movementarian' cult.
Even the outfits are the same.
If this has been said before, I apologize but to me, they are using Brain's (from Pinky and the Brain) idea to take over the world.
I only found this clip but you may recall Brain is trying to suppress Pinky's emotions so that he may become more analytical and help him with his plans.
Brain uses tape to force Pinky's eyes open (a sort of tribute to Orange Clockwork) and starts broadcasting a series of sad images aimed at rendering him impertubable and brilliant. The last set of images is similar to "The Lion King" (that's the one I attach).
By the end of it, Brain is crying as well and the best part is Pinky comforting Brain with this phrase:
"AW, IT'S ALL RIGHT, BRAIN. NO ONE CAN RESIST A TERRIFICALLY MANIPULATIVE CONTRIVANCE WITH SWELLING MUSIC, EXCEPT MAYBE G. GORDON LIDDY."
That episode was broadcast in 1995 so you could say it only took 21 years for the Watchtower to tune their manipulation techniques.
This series of videos will BITE THEM IN THE ARSE!!!
In the past persons had to probably be attending meetings and, or reading their publications to decipher the true nature of their genocidal, apocalyptic, isolationist beliefs. Now we have crisp, clean, well lighted, high definition videos outlining those beliefs. Now the public can go on Youtube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook etc and instantly see the nutty crap they have been peddling!!!"
Just re-watched this. Again...wow.
So many issues with it. So many things wrong...
But...again...WT teaches a fairy tale, and JW believe a fairy tale.
I feel sick having watched that!
My cultdar is off the scale now.
What's with the strange outfits? Oh, and somehow they have the ability to have printed blueprints but then build the house by hand.......
So glad to be out of this cult but worry for my family still in.
