Good topic, blueblades!
Fascinating link, jgnat!
The contrast between the opulent progressive pleasures they hold out as a hope for the future and the self-deprivation and stagnation they insist on now is quite remarkable when you think about it. I remember it well, too. Anything you might desire, however natural and harmless, got put off until the New System. "You can do that THEN. You can have that THEN. For now just focus on the preaching work. Don't make waves. Don't worry about problems. For heaven's sake, don't try to change anything. Just do what ya gotta do to get there."
