Ahem.  If, as she appears to be, she is virtually the dictator of the
Society,  she has *become* the cause, even if she started out as a
symptom.  This is very common in disease.  Declaring oneself the
spiritual leader of the Society has all the appearance of megalomania,
in which case the self-appointed "saint" should be removed ASAP.
However, there is seems to be no official mechanism for doing
this -.So the Head of Adyar TS has changed the rules to suit the
convenience of herself and her family!

And John Algeo, we are frequently reminded, has changed the rules of
the US Section to *his* advantage, or that of his administration,
which may be the same thing .....

And people want to JOIN this setup?

good grief
