I've been perusing recent topics for a few minutes and seeing pretty much the standard JW fare these days - scandals, abuse, bad behavior, cover ups, bullying, shunning, family splits, torturous extrications from a cult, mind control etc.
I started to TRY and think of anything the Dubs were doing that was actually beneficial to mankind in any way, and I'm struggling. Without being facetious, WTF do they do to make anybody's life better? Help me out here.
Employment for cart manufacturers
Employment for abuser defence lawyers
Some stadium hire, probably big discount
Hotel room hire
Fast food consumption.
Give your Auntie Mabel somewhere to go on a Wednesday night.
Yeah, Im reaching..
Would be more here but all their labor costs are from
No charity work, unless you're a loyal JW. Even then, better if you're in a disaster overseas.
Hand over your meagre savings please. We will use it to help pay for your indoctrination.
No higher education, so a low paying job for you, if any.
Cover up of child abuse
Protection of abusers
Shunning >> Split families> costly mental and emotional health issues
No transfusions >> needless death
Loss of government income through tax free occupation of property.
Trauma and Suffering from Abuse, Shunning. Aged Poverty, Bullying > Huge health costs
Non voting, no military service (kind of lazy really)
Gas wastage on FS
Vast paper wastage until digital age.
Anything positive I can think of is offset. Ok they buy a lot of bad cheap suits but no birthday cakes.
I'm sure I've missed some but they really are a LONG way in debit in terms of being useful humans, yet believe they are special. Kind of bizarre when examined this way.
What percentage do you think know deep down that their lives are a waste but feel trapped by some circumstance. I think that number is rising with a bullet as opposed to those who genuinely believe they are about to board a train to Paradise for being good soldiers.
