One of the most crazy things about tscc is the way leaders are chosen. The selection process took place 40 years ago. All they needed to do was get into the Q15 then live longer than everybody else! No discussion about which of the Q15 is most suitable, the senior one gets the top job as it is "Buggins turn"
Is this policy of succession "scripturally valid?" I realize it's the way they do things but is the method of "longevity = selection" actually printed in the documents the organization claims to be scriptures? I thought there was something in D&C that mentioned the Q12/14 would gather together and then pray to receive a "revelation" or whatever. I also remember a talk by BKP which indicated the method in place "longevity = selection" but I always wondered where that "commandment" was published first. At the time, none of my TBM friends knew either and they looked at me sideways for wondering about such things.
Regardless, I believe there are two primary entities at the top of the organization:
The Q15 and ancillary leadership we see
The people who actually manage the financial operations of the organization
I am confident the Corporation of the President (or, whatever name given to the men who are really controlling the financial operations) has a clear, well defined legal system in place to guarantee the money will continue to pour in and then be funneled to destinations unknown which they control. This "secret combination" of men in charge of financial operations will continue their control, using the facade of the Q15 (or whatever) to promote their unscrupulous agenda, and whether one or more of the visible leaders
are physically &/or mentally deficient, makes absolutely no difference whatsoever in the covert operations of the vault guardians.
I also believe this scenario is possible to uncover. Given proper resources, I am certain that some day, someone or a group of individuals will have enough motivation and ingenuity to discover and share tangible, overwhelming evidence this situation is actually occurring and the public will finally realize what's really going on. I just hope Michael Moore isn't the one documenting the deceitful, sordid story when it finally becomes available. Someone crafty will take advantage of this opportunity and either make themselves famous, get paid off or perhaps end up taking a one way trip to oblivion.
