Having shared the ARC report on Facebook and shaken up my network of JW friends, uhhh... I am now learning how unfortunately ignorant they have become. So far the overall response to the report has shown that well enough, but it got worse.
A friend of mine moved to the UK from California a few years back. After he saw my post, he PMed me, essentially checking up to see if I'm alright. I said yeah my wife and I are alright, and asked how things are in the UK. Cordially, he said they're good, could be better but we'll get along anyway. I agreed, and said it's interesting to see all the history going on, but we just have to get along.
"Brexit, Trump, all that."
"Brexit? What's that? I will Google it."
What is going on? What rock are my friends hiding under and why does it seem so comfortable? How does my smart, thinking friend go without knowing about Brexit whilst living in England? How does this happen?
If he were to go to the door, and I were a householder, and we had basically the same conversation that I have relayed here, what would the householder in London think of this?
My god, people...
