Reluctant Watchman, after watching the above video and your Book of Mormon vs LDS Church Part 4, it struck me that the LDS organization has developed a persona just like individuals do, and they also have a repressed, collective shadow that needs to be integrated.

I'm really grateful that I viewed these two videos together, it really made some things click for me that I had never though of before - like this idea that groups of people and organizations have a lot of the same characteristics that are talked about in Jungian Psychology.

Jung is awesome!
A few thoughts re: the video etc.:

The more you know yourself the more you can be authentic. (Kinda obvious but easier said than done if a lot is repressed.)

The more something is repressed, the more it wants out.

It seems that GA psychologically project their own issues when they lecture in an overreacting or uncalled for way.
