In any relationship, whatever it may be, parent to child, doctor to patient, boss to employee,
attitude of "looking down" is a losing proposition.  There will be always resentment on those
talked down to.  I have never gotten over the idea that one Theosophist printed in one of the
newsletters that "humanity would someday catch up with US." and that everything would be
dory.  What a horrible thing to say about your brothers and sisters.  It can only mean that
those Theosophical individuals are actually insecure and must put themselves on a pedastel in
order to feel good about themselves.
