Mark: the issue that you have raised has never been a problem to me
personally. The fundamental objective  of the TS has been to form a
nucleus of people like you and me and rest of us here who see what we can
do to help humanity. To me to deal with humanity in abstract is
difficult. Just to deal with people I come into contact with every day
and at every contact I try to see how I can be helpful, kind and
considerate and contribute to their welfare, is how I deal with helping
humanity. When the focus and priority of my actions are on this, the
questions you raised becomes not very significant from my personal point
of view. this is just my humble approach.
