I am a firm believer that information is power.
Throughout my entire childhood and early adulthood either my parents, foster parent, and the WTS did a great job of controlling the information I had. By controlling the information, they controlled me.
As a result of this information control, one of survival mechanisms has been to collect.... information. At one time I had a library of over 1500 books. When I moved out west I had to give away about half of those. And then I had to move them back across the province again.
Well this is getting a bit silly to be moving all these books all over the place. And now I am in a small apartment and don't want to move these books yet again if I move.
I love books. I treasure them. I can't stand it when I get a book from the library and someone had underlined and written all over the book. I never write in my books. They are too precious for that. (I used to hate underlining for the WT meetings.
So... something has to go.
The WTS books have had their day.
Now to dispose of these unerringing "truthful" books I need to make sure they don't fall into some unsuspecting persons hands who might actually believe this stuff.
So to get rid of them and protect the innocent ......
I manually shredded them.
Yup tore those little devils up by hand. No mean feat mind you considering the pain in my hands these days. But some things just have to be done.
Now .... where are the rest of them.
