Mother is terrified over talks of peace.
Remember what JWs said about the imminence of the end after Reagan announced a new era of peace and security after the Berlin Wall fell?
Lol... only a cult can engender fear over something as good as “peace”. Perhaps you could tell your mom not to worry, humans have great capacity to kill and the world has many hot spots still.
Any suggestions on what I could perhaps tell her to try and steer her from her line of thinking?
Throughout humanity's history there have been civilizations that were once warring then agreed to a peaceful coexistence.
Perhaps a history lessen is due ?
The WTS exploits people's ignorance by using fear, as a means to manipulate and control people, that is a fact.
The WTS is a fear mongering apocalyptic religious (Publishing house) cult, that also a fact.
The peace and security (tm) was in 1988 or something like that, with all that religion leaders praying for peace during the Year of Peace, in Asisi, Italy, wasn’t it?
Everything is proof we're right!
Even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff!
Seriously though; one of my many little wake-up moments was realizing that loyal, rank-and-file JWs - for all intents and purposes - pretty much believed that.
