If you look beneath what you see many of us post here, you will find that
in this maillist than any other, you find us all treat every human being
as equals no matter what the language may suggest.

It is the equality of everyone in the humanity that is at the foundation
of Theosophy, and that is why it is here even after more than a century.

    Peace to all living beings.
