"Captives of a Concept" and the Governing Bodys New Light

Before this new light about the faithful and discreet slave officially comes out,Captives of a Concept already explained that in actual practice, the various terms that have been used to refer to Gods organization(including the faithful and discreet slave) refer in fact to just the men who have been hidden behind those terms- the men of the Governing Body. See Chapters 6 and 11
Raymond Franz figured this out long before the Governing Body just did. In his Crisis of Conscience he said
Whether the Governing Body members acknowledge it or whether they prefer not to think about it, the fact remains that in the crucial aspects of the authority and teachings THEY, AND THEY ALONE, ARE THE ORGANIZATION. Or in other words,They and they alone are the faithful and discreet slave.
Apparently these men have finally been thinking about it and now agree with what Ray Franz said almost 30 years ago. They also now agree with what Captives of a Concept started saying 8 years ago.
If what we are hearing is true, these men of the Governing Body will no longer be hidden behind that slave. From now on they wont just REPRESENT that slave. They, and they alone, ARE that slave at least unless or until some more new light gets turned on.
This new understudying may actually help some Witnesses begin to realize that they have simply been following these men all along, rather than the faithful and discreet slave that Jesus was referring to in Matthew 24:45-47.
It will be interesting to see how the Governing Body handles this matter with all of its consequences.

A person can refer to Wikipedia and see this is nothing new.
The Governing Body functions by means of its six committees, which carry out various administrative functions. Each committee is assisted by "helpers," who do not necessarily profess to be of the "anointed."
This "new" information is not stating the Governing Body in itself comprises the faithful and discreet slave described in Matthew 24:45-47.
It's stating the faithful and discreet slave doesn't consist only of the anointed.
