Re: Daniel Sowing Dissent?
May 03, 2006 08:08 AM
I don't believe Daniel warrants any defence in this case. Carlos is
simply mirroring Daniels' behavior. Daniel knows this and will not
defend himself on principle because if he does he will be admitting his
own guilt with respect to HPB and Judge. Because of this Daniel will
simply try to mock and chide Carlos into silence, hoping others will
come to his aid with more principled arguments.
Daniel uses the work of the Coulombs and Solovyoff when editing or
assisting in the editing of collections of material on HPB. In "The
Letters" we find HPB detailing a sexually promiscuous youth and the
torturing of a cat to death. Daniel quite reasonably states that he
does not necessarily believe this "evidence" but, until it is proved
false, neither does he think it should be hidden away and forgotten.
Carlos looks at the evidence that Paul Johnson has brought forward.
That evidence implies that Daniel may have created false personas in
order to more easily attack theosophical personalities and the ULT.
Carlos says he does not necessarily believe that evidence, but until
things are cleared up one way or another, neither should it be
Daniel has done much work of value putting together a comprehensive
archive on theosophical material. This can help both enemies and
friends of theosophy depending on how that archive is used. Daniel has
stated that he has never felt compelled to seek out other theosophists
as collegues. This implies that the intuition of brotherhood does not
appeal strongly to him. He must therefore be interested in HPB and her
history for other reasons. I think in the end, Carlos is simply trying
to point out to Daniel that you cannot do justice to HPB if you do not
make an attempt to understand Universal Brotherhood. In any case, I am
not certain Daniel wants you arguing too strongly that it is wrong to
continue repeating unproven allegations as it puts him in a difficult

Soloviof did the same.

> As to Daniel's sowing dissent among theosophists, the important thing
to have in mind is that, in spite of all differences, Theosophy, which
theosophists have in common, is much greater than their differences. The
reason for showing Leadbeater for what he is is not strruggle for power
-- the aim is to help the movement get rid of Leadbeater's illusions.

Significant, Frank. Significant.

Perhaps "David Green" will clarify. You know the right to defend
oneself is a sacred thing and I respect that.
