The only hope I see for the future is Internet to open up the eyes of
members to the real reality of the situation. It is going to take some
time. When you add the factor that there are still a lot of members in
the 80s and 90s for whom TS is a religion and it is too late for them to
open up and see the reality.

As more and more younger members and potential members get interested, it
is highly likely that they have Internet access. It is going to provide
them information which will make them understand that what they see is
not what they get as far as the organization is concerned. From this
point of view, some of us who have been around and are aware of.

In an unrelated matter, in a recent conversation with a member of TSA,
the member suggested that the receipt of and tallying of votes in all
national elections may have to be given to the Certified Public
Accounting Firm, just like they do in Oscar and other awards so that the
confidence in the process can be assured for all members.
