Yes, that's right, how dare some guy accuse him of "controlling" anybody.
There was passive control. Leaders who couldn't be controlled became out of favor and had their reputations smeared so no one would receive them. I saw control being delegated to loyal leaders who would not question the decision making process; ethical or unethical, righteous or unrighteous. Just as in the movie Absolute Power, the secret service agent's excuse for covering up a crime, "right or wrong, he's our president". Same can be said of LC leaders in regard to those loyal to Witness Lee prior to his passing. Even after his passing, the blended's decision making is indicative of loyalty with no respect to righteousness of unrighteousness
