Dear LS,
It's been a long day for me so I need to be brief.  You now understand that we have no need for what may be called side issues and I appreciate that.

I'm confident that you know but I'll say it anyway;  That in order to discuss a topic we need some common ground of understanding.  In order to get into Theosophy quickly and to get a lot of the broad ideas within it I would like to suggest you begin studying The Ocean Of Theosophy, a book by one of the respected founders.
You seem to be really good with internet searches and if you simple google the title several sites with the book on line come up. After reviewing the contents, pick a chapter of interest or start where you wish.  After you have read some chapters, then we'll chat about it.

Another fine book available on-line is Life's Riddle  by Nils A. Amneus. (very good chapters on reincarnation and karma)

If you prefer Isis Unveiled than that's fine as well.  Regardless we have to get some common ground, some foundation built up. OK?  Any stuff in the way of the foundation gets pushed aside as a foundation gets built.  This all takes some effort and has been found necessary by every student of theosophy that I've come across.  Pick one and let's go all the way through it.

Have a good night.

Best regards, Gary B.

  Speaking for myself only, I have no agenda and have come fresh into 
  this form. I've taken no courses in Theosophy. But I am interested 
  in the subjects you mentioned also and I will cease the political 
  talk after tonight. I am interested in comparing Blavatsky's "Isis 
  Unvieled" with her Secret Doctrine also - I preferred her earlier 
  work on "ISIS Unveiled" actually. I am interested in Karmic 
  debt/effect also. Also I was going to add my thoughts on the 
  difference between humans and animals but I got side-tracked 
  (again) - bad habit of mine.

  I hope to discuss further with you and the others Gary.

  > That's perhaps kind of silly putting "Private" in a discussion 
  site subject box, but what the hell.
  > After listening to you, may I be so bold as to ask you a few 
  questions. I shall do my best to not put you on the defensive, and 
  I am trying to be upfront with you.
  > Being somewhat familiar with the Aryan Brotherhood and the 
  National Socialists views and somewhat familiar with how people come 
  in contact with those views and philosophy, I now wish to plainly 
  ask a few pertinent questions in order to see if perhaps I can 
  better understand you, ( I do not pretend to speak for any others 
  within this discussion group). I would not normally ask these type 
  of questions, so bear with me.
  > It appears to me that you are possibly in the pen. Would you care 
  to say ? I do not hold a persons past against them, even though we 
  all try to use some common sense in the present.
  > Secondly, have you been taking any T.U.P. Correspondence Course 
  lessons, (Theosophical Univ. Press) ? If so, how far have you gone 
  with them?
  > Did one of the T.U.P. correspondents refer you to this discussion 
  group? ( please, no names )
  > Would you care to discuss what writings of H.P. Blavatsky and W.Q. 
  Judge you have read so far and any questions about these you might 
  wish to discuss?
  > Are there particular points about the theosophical philosophy you 
  care to discuss? Reincarnation? Karma? After death states? The human 
  Principals or centers?
  > Evolution (theosophy style)? What brought you into theosophical 
  studies or the topic? 
  > I typically avoid technical theosophical terms unless nothing else 
  will do. Most importantly, I am student as well and if I can not 
  reasonably help then I will ask others to chime in and do so. So, 
  if you are sincere, please address the questions and then tell me 
  where you would like to begin. Lastly, if either of us find our 
  conversations out-of-line or inappropriate to theosophy then we each 
  need to say so, fair enough?
