Membership decline can be defined in two ways: quantity and quality.
While the quantity issue has been much discussed here, maybe a
discussion of what would a high-quality TS look like and what are
the conditions for its existence would be a discussion that, ipso
facto, would address the quantity issue.  This gets back to what
is genuine theosophy and what supports its realization within a
organization.  Remember, the original title of Plato's famous dialogue
was not "Republic" (or Res Publica given to it by Cicero) but politeia,
which primarily means a healthy constitution in a medical sense.  It
is a regimen of health ordered by sophia by which a healthy regime
manifests itself (society is soul writ large).
