JWs, do you feel that reading original material from the 1914 era is "old light", or is it still pertinent to some current truth today?

If it was "old light" then it would not be in any of our modern day books for studying with students.
Even non witnesses agree that in 1914, was the starting point of horrors in the world. Yes, always been cruelty, but not to the extent from that time onwards.

J/W's call themselves Bible students, so it would seem logical that if you continually study something, your understanding of the subject will improve. Just like naturalists once thought that crocodiles ate their own offspring, but by studying them they discovered that in fact they don't eat them, they carry them in their mouths. So, as folk no longer teach their children that crocodiles eat their young, J/W's (presumably), no longer refer to material that has no real bearing on their current understanding.
