One thing about you, you truly CARE about the movement.
I fully agree with you as to the "power of the Internet". It will, before
too long, do more in line with the First Object than any theosophical group
has EVER done. It helped prevent the Communist Coup in Russia from
succeeding, it paved the way for Prague's "Velvet Revolution" and it will,
in time, end the tyrannies of any Government, anywhere. It will also end the
tyrrany of the media. People will inform people!
As to HPB, I am afraid, Doss that were she present today, the Theosophical
Power Players would treat her very badly. Remember, there were Theosophists
in her day who were embarrassed by her and who wanted her out of the Society
because she was "un theosophical", they also said she was rude and hot
tempered, she made a specialty of saying things people didn't want to hear.
How would that go down with John Algeo or Radha Burnier? After all, I'm just
her cousin and look how they react to me. And I am nothing more than a pale
copy of her.
