That is very interesting. When did Adam Warcup leave Adyar TS?
It does not surprise me that ~The Theosophical Journal~ in England
behaves as though internet facilities do not exist. Typical osterich
During the last two years I have been on the Internet, I have known
so much of the information that I did not know over the last almost four
decades of my involvement with TS.
I can well understand the apprehension about all the information
that have been kept in the dark in the past is going to be out. In the
past anytime you inquire knowledgeable leadership about any past events,
the general response has been "what does it matter to you" -- that is a
trick to avoid disclosing information.
Internet is still viewed with great concern, IMHO. I recently heard
of a very important and useful e-mail address paid for from the coffers
of organization's funds but not want it to be known to the other
theosophists, apparently being used only by select elite to communicate.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
Thanks Alan for the post.
