    Since the Watchtower Society has been reorganized and split up in all these (sub)corporations, I wonder where the real power is located. My guess would be the WTBTS of Pennsylvania, Inc. Other ideas?

    C ,mon Richard. You should know, that all the power, honour and glory belong to Jehovah.

    I don't think there is any real power in the corporations. The power comes from the men, or man, behind them. The corporations are merely a shell game to keep the authorities confused as to which one bears responsibility for whatever goes wrong. I like to think that such a house of cards will sooner or later be knocked down, but it may take the likes of a corporate raider to figure out the weak spots and attack them.

    How 'bout it? Any budding Donald Trumps out there?

    This is a very good question. Who IS running things? Is it the GB? The lawyers? The accountants? The Service Dept.?......WHO???

    Right now, it would appear that Jaracz and his jackbooted apparatchiks in the Service Department are calling the shots; they keep a watchful eye on the writers, where a flickering flame of progressive liberalism is about to be extinguished. Would-be reformers like Sydlik and others have either been muzzled, biting their tongues and/or biding their time.

    The WT is like a train going over the mountains. It reached its peak in the 80s and now it is going down hill. But the engineer is too old to care so he has drifted off to sleep. Now it is being carried along on momentum from the hay-day of the 80s.

    No one is running the WT. It is either going to plunge off a cliff or coast to a stop at the bottom. There isn't anyone with the charisma to get it up the next hill.

    I think yer right, it's Pennsylvania. That's the holding company and it gets the BIG donations like wills and trusts and real estate the last time I checked. I read there are over 100 corporations under it.

    It looks like the Georgia fight is by Pennsylvania.
