I agree with that. Haven't anyone heard of turning the other cheek?
One idea: The officers of the TS have a direct chat session via computer.
This is where Eldon's post regarding the instant e-mail system would come
in handy. The announcement should be done well ahead of time so that those
who would like to take part can have the time to prepare for it. Also, all
theosophical discussion lists should be made aware of this event. I
strongly believe that proper communication is one of the keys to resolving
problems. Each side should be willing to keep the lines open, and each
side should keep the accusation tone down. In modern psychology, the
suggestion of proper communication would be like this:
Side 1: Blah, blah, blah.
Side 2: I hear you say blah, blah, blah. Do you mean blah, blah, blah?
Side 1: Yes, I mean blah, blah, blah.
Side 2: Okay, I understand your feeling of blah, blah, blah, but I yak,
Etc., etc. :o)
