This is true of the USA, which *is* under JA's leadership, but it is
alos true of the UK and other parts of the world.  What evidence there
is suggests that the cause lies higher up the ladder, with the
Interntional President, who has been described as "she who must be
obeyed" as the de facto and de jure head of the Adyar TS worldwide,
*and* the same of the Adyar ES.

It seems to be the ES which dictates international policy, and which
dictates TS policy.  As the ES is *not* democratic, but autocratic,
then it follows that any apparent democracy in the TS is unreal.  This
explains why entire National Sections (e.g., Denmark, Canada) have
been expelled by Adyar - they seem to have believed that the
democratic process was genuine!

Netherlands, keep watch - you still have something precious!
