I recently learned of the term "Hanlon's Razor".
Wikipedia defines it as:
Hanlon's razor is an aphorism expressed in various ways including "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity." It recommends a way of eliminating unlikely explanations for a phenomenon (a philosophical razor).
So could it be said that this applies to the GB / Society ?
Are the GB just simply deluded, and genuinely believe their own teachings and claims? Or could it be said that they don't really think they are God's sole channel on earth, but have inherited a huge religious entity tand body of teachings that they have to take control of and propagate?
