Thanks a lot. 

A brilliant description of how Trojan Horses may work within democratic movements. 

The question is -- how to defend the movement keeping its democratical ways and methods.  Also, what is the political agenda  of those who systematically circulate those "doubts" about HPB and Judge. 

Where does Daniel  Caldwell stand from a political viewspoint, for instance? 

Hard to get it, but I am trying.
