The JW cult works through a multi-generational enslavement model. The first generation is recruited and it may all seem OK to them. It's the subsequent generations whose freedom of conscience and association that is subject to the cruel tyranny of disfellowshipping and ostracism.
For me it is ordinary to view the world through systems and structures that span generations, as I was in the 3rd generation. I was forced to reconcile my mother's famility beliefs with those of my father. The only way was to build a cosmology to encompass both sets of madness!
As a child I took a "vow of silence" to myself to NEVER reveal what was really going on inside of me. Information is power, and when you are plotting (consciously or unconsciously) to escape a totalitarian pseudo-religion, you don't reveal yourself. A sad precedent in many ways.
I'm currently sat in Lithuania, which was a Soviet republic. My ex-wife's birth certificate reads "CCCP" at the top in Russian. My sense is that people who have experiened such repression have an innate grasp of the deceptive and manipulative nature of evil institutions.
That wickedness presents itself as true virtue is totally normal in my life. I've been dealing with it for decades; still having to manage the conequences of the Masonic JW cult's grip on the family. There are of course wounds from these experiences; revealing myself is therapy.
