    I ask this question for good reason. Let's face it, despite all the books, videos, forums, Court cases, hearings, protests etc that have been exposing the Society for many years. continues to roll on almost 'it seems' unscathed.

    For example, just walk into any Kingdom Hall there is not so much as a whisper about anything that has been exposed outside of JW land. continue to roll out their slick broadcasts unhindered. It's all so bizarre!

    "Information Control"

    One of the most powerful signs of a high-control cult.

    Where are the "Russian hackers" when we need them?

    Unless laws are changed making religions as answerable to the same laws as every other business then WT will likely go on. The power lies with the individuals of religions to withdraw support.

    I choose to believe that people are waking up, slowly but surely.

    They Have a Captive Audience.

    Because JWS are indoctrinated to not question or bring reproach upon Jehovah's organization, openly expressing doubts or points of concern shows a lack spiritual strength and no doubt will attract attention causing you to be privately counseled..

    There is social aura of fear toward behavior enforced by the elders.

    The WT is slick but no invincible, the hits that they are taking will eventually produce fruits. More prominent religious groups from the past, today are almost gone. An example are the Quakers, very prominent in American history and with famous members including Richard Nixon; take a look at some recent numbers:

    Worldwide: most recent membership count (2012) = 377,055

    Distribution worldwide of Friends:

    Africa = 52% North America = 20% Caribbean and Latin America = 15% Europe and Middle East = 7% Asia-West Pacific = 6%.

    United States: 2007 = 86,837; 2012 = 76,360

    They've got a good business model. Offer everlasting life in exchange for remaining decades now.

    Back it up with death threats and the loss of virtually all family/friends if you leave.

    And we wonder why people don't leave. Only those with a backbone find their way out.

    Their bleeding members bad. People are just sick of the bull even with out knowing about all the scandals etc. Halls are at 50% capacity or less, Europe most likely less.

    I have a friend and two of his sisters have recently stopped going. Ones been DFD and after getting reinstated they spy on her and harass her so she told them to go away and not come back. The other sister of his was in a miserable marriage so she's off having an affair divorced her husband and is happy. Doesn't go to meeting. These two have never been in any apostate sites just plain miserable being JWs. I willing to bet this is happening all over.

    JW.ORG might linger around for years to come, but that doesn't mean anything; it could be run from a single room in Grandma's basement. However, JWdom, itself, has already been 'broken' (using a form of the key word in your title). The glory days are over. It's not what it used to be.

    The Great Leaders of JWdom know they've lost in the doctrinal/theological arena, and the boldness of former days is gone. Unlike they did in former days, JWs now run from debates.

    The increases of former days are gone. The preaching is nothing like what it used to be. JWdom is stagnant. Knowing that the glory days are over, the org is simply in self-preservation mode now.
