I've never advocated that the Theosophical Society get involved in politics.
That would be absurd - the Society must be open and in service to all -
politics, among other things, would only cause disharmony; somehow that
would imply that if one didn't agree with TS's political choices, they were
not 'theosophists.'

  Yes! a good dose of Theosophy would go a long way in "really" working for
the common good.  But what is a good dose of Theosophy?  How would a
representative or governor with a Theosophical background differ from the
others?  What makes a T/theosophist any different from anybody else?

Go to a usenet?  Is there a usenet out there which discusses how theosophy,
current events, moral dilemma's, and helping humanity are interrelated?
What's the name/address of it?  HPB wrote about abortion, charity, suicide;
Besant wrote about women's rights. They didn't seem to think "humanity's
issues" and theosophy are not connected.  A regular "general subject" usenet
isn't going to address the fundamental principles of theosophy.
