Don't be deceived. The Society does an excellent job of hiding the deepening malaise. Food service at assemblies gets
dumped to be consistent with our "brothers in other lands". ( real reason: people are grabbing the subs and soda and not
contributing). Subscriptions in the US get dumped to encourage "return visits" ( real reason: lack of contributions).
A thousand or so Bethelites are eliminated - but the Society avoids the word "downsized". A large number of countries
like Denmark report a loss of publishers so - surprize! - they declare that you can be a publisher by putting in 15 minutes a month.
They lack growth in pioneers so they declare you can be a pioneer with 70 hours. Japan loses over 600 congregations
but you never hear about it.
Eventually, all but the most stupid and zombified Witnesses will catch on to this charade.
