Isnt the entire Dub hierarchy doomed due to it's foundation? For instance those taking the "lead" can't usually get help with personal problems without going to fellow elders. Yet to do such one takes a very big risk of losing the ever so cherished and long sought after (after much @$$ kissing) "privelege". Even if a family member has "problems", you will probably lose the position.
Since position is everything to most of these under-educated, mentally ill despots (I know there are a few "good" ones), any "problem" is sure to be hidden away. As we all know only the stupid and naive (the truly "good" Dub's) "come forward", and get the "loving" help from da bro's.
Since most problems are hidden (purposefully) they are never solved. And like a neglected wound eventually fester to the point of gangrene. Now the house of cards crumbles and there are usually MANY casualties. Why must the "fall" be so hard? This is a self-perpetuating system of failure based on the premise that "good" people won't "screw up" - when the opposite is the actual truth. At least that's what I read in the Bible. David, Paul, Peter etc. should all have been "removed" according to the Dub "rules". So you have a group of men who pretend to be what they are not, out of FEAR - not love. I mean who wants to work that long and hard only to have it ripped away from you by your fellow tyrant?
Wouldn't it make more sense to not be so harsh and judgemental? Or is this just "pride before a crash" proving true and playing out? So hard to get to "the top", yet so easy to be brought to the bottom. How do you ever retain your good people? And the climb back up is a LONG and PAINFUL one (with most quitting). As many here know.
