I came to a stark realisation, this week, and it's simply this: I no longer feel any need to use derogatory terms about the WTS.
I had closure, from leaving the JWs, when I DA'ed January 2002. Around that time I accepted it as being a "cult", whereas before I used the term "high-control group". I started using terms such as "Borg" and "dub", to describe the WTS and JWs, and I really do think that helped the process of extracting indoctrinated ideas.
I hate what is being done in the name of that religion, but I see that in other religions, too. Other than the briefest of moments, I've seen fairly clearly that getting angry or obsessive about a corporate entity is a little futile. That isn't said by way of any kind of judgement on folks who are going through those cycles of grief, though.
There was a post over the last few days about moving on (it might have been in Bradley's thread) that caused me to reflect on the fact that I have little desire to use such terms in a pergorative sense. Whilst they do sometimes slip out, I find that I now generally use WTS and JWs (and have done for some time, I just hadn't noticed).
Does this mean that I think the WTS is any less destructive? Nope.
Does this mean that I grieve for individual JWs any less? Nope.
Does this mean that I've recognised another stage in my ex-relationship to that... f***ing mind-bending, hyper-destructive cult that assimilates all in it's path with abandon, spitting out the detrius of wasted human lives in it's wake??? B*st*rds, all of them!!!
