The following suggests that HPB would not have given credence to
the idea of "Thought Police."

HPB on *thought* (SD Vol II).  (Different editions will give
different page numbers):

"LUCIFER - the spirit of Intellectual Enlightenment and Freedom
of Thought - is metaphorically the guiding beacon, which helps man
to find his way through the rocks and sandbanks of Life, for
Lucifer is the LOGOS in his highest, and the " Adversary" in his
lowest aspect - both of which are reflected in our Ego."

"In our day of dreary soul-killing materialism, the ancient
priest Initiates have become, in the opinion of our learned
generations, the synonyms of clever impostors, kindling the
fires of superstition in order to obtain an easier sway over the
minds of men. This is an unfounded calumny, generated by
scepticism and uncharitable thoughts."
