 Microsoft may have succeeded in securing material wealth,
pushing others out of business, and steering people like
sheep in the computer field, but they would make lousy
spiritual workers.  Spiritual "success" cannot necessarily
be counted in numbers - for if 90% of the whole world
thinks "wrongly" about issues of Compassion and
spirituality, it cannot be hailed as a "success."

 Microsoft's philosophy is good for Microsoft; but not
necessarily for Apple.  It is the same with Theosophy.>

Certainly, but I do want a TS where a person who does not
believe in reincarnation will feel as welkom as one who
does, and to achieve that, we need an open and therefore
democratic environment where criticism is as possible and
welkom as it is on this (and other) lists.
