I have no doubt of that.

The phrase, "screaming match", was directed at anyone on the list that overeacts
or perhaps writes an emotional post, sends it out before calming down, thinking
it over and rewriting it an hour later.

Your opinions regarding various people in the theosophical movement make
ABSOLUTELY NO IMPRESSION on me. They are yours and if you find value in them,
then I applaud that.

I have always considered Brenda to be a very intelligent, highly advanced and

I am very near to finishing Ancient Mystic Rites, a book by CWL. It is about
the history of the Masons. Everyone on this list has the basic freedom to read
whatever book we want, by whatever author we choose.

There may be others on the list who are eager to debate CWL versus Judge, Bailey
versus Blavatsky, etc. In my vision, it's just a lot of apples and oranges, but
basically still fruit. Which one goes down the gullet better for you.

Who are the empowered folk? The media, who panders to the lowest common
demoninator with talk shows, soap operas and tabloids? The government? Who are
the empowered? I think the real power exists with Christ, Buddha, the Masters,
their disciples, the New Group of World Servers, Theosophists and any sincere
person working for unity and brotherhood. The real power is on the inner
