Remember what that American idiot, George W., tried to say once? Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me! The cult has travelled this road before. More than once in the early days they sent everyone home. More than once they've changed their name. More than once they changed their rules, doctrines, etc. Maybe they're going down this road a bit further than they ever have before, but you can never trust deceivers and liars.

They call this a reboot, which strikes me as hilariously stupid since everyone knows that when you reboot a computer you are merely restarting it, and continue to use the same old operating system. Maybe they will claim, or already have, that they haven't just rebooted, but have installed an entirely new operating system, but I would say bullshit to that. No matter what cosmetic or structural changes they make, at the core it is still the same old corrupt belief system.

Here's a couple of metaphors I think make better sense:

How about the Yo-Yo series, where they continually roll out new policies that seem to grant far reaching freedoms, only to jerk on the string to bring back the yo-yos into the fold, over and over again.

Or how about Doctor Frankenstein's Extreme Make-Over series, where they try to 'surgically' correct all the deformities and defects in the monster they have unleashed into the world.

As you can tell, I'm pessimistic about this. If, for example, one of the fastest growing religions in the world, Mormonism, still continues to convince people that the fraudulent and absurd Book of Mormon is actually a holy book, then there will always be idiots somewhere who will come to believe that Berg was actually a prophet.
