I guess we all know the answer why this still happens... but really, why?
Just a month ago I was having some conversation with this sister and since I'm on inactive status, she was trying to get me to download ALL those JW apps because the "work is speeding up" and I shouldn't be missing out on anything from the org. Especially when they come up with all these "provisions" that intend only to benefit the members. Why would anyone dare to "ignore" these apps that are already laid out so beautifully for us to use, was her point, spoken in a nice way.
But then I forgot she is one among the members I know that don't agree much about people going to universities, since WT does not like people pursuing higher education.
My point is, and I know that everyone already knows this (I only wanted to get this out of my head again), is that:
- How will you develop these JW apps if you don't have software engineers, project managers, UX designers, software testers, cloud engineers, database administrators, etc? The reason you are finding these apps to be "beautifully created" is that the people behind these projects STUDIED in college. Web development? Mobile app development? Project Management? Most of the technical stuff need to be learned systemically at school. These aren't something one can learn on a weekend.
Same goes for all the medical advancements (including what is always emphasized as breakthrough techniques in bloodless surgery, etc.). I guess WT and some its deeply-indoctrinated members forget that doctors and researchers wouldn't have had achieved that if they did not pursue higher education.
Same goes for lawyers who need to defend the WT from all these child abuse cases. Don't you think they studied back in college and even pursued their own specializations?
Ok, that's it. Rant over..
