Dear Friends, 

The importance that I see in Theos-talk, as a process made possible due to Eldon Tucker's generous work, is that, for the Masters and HPB, openess to contrast and debate  was not an editorial policy only. 

It was part of a greater vision of  the theosophical movement. During the crisis of the London Lodge in 1883-1884  one Master wrote: 

“Not even the President-Founder has the right directly or indirectly to interfere with the freedom of thought of the humblest member, least of all to seek to influence his personal opinion. It is only in the absence of this  generous consideration, that even the faintest shadow of difference arms seekers after the same truth, otherwise earnest and sincere, with the scorpion-whip of  hatred against their brothers, equally  sincere and earnest.  Deluded victims of  distorted truth, they forget, or never knew,  that discord is the harmony of the universe. Thus in the Theos. Society,  each part, as in the glorious fugues of  Mozart, ceaselessly  chases the other  in harmonious discord  on the paths of Eternal progress (...)” (1) 

The process is not always easy and nice, but so is not life, or the Way. 

Best regards, Carlos.
