Before 'Adopting' Caldwell
Jan 05, 2007 06:04 AM
Before suddenly adopting Mr. Caldwell as his role-model for attacks
against ULT and Pasadena TS, Jake had also this to say about
Calwellian under cover activities. See below.
People do change!!
Re Using pen-names
Using pen-names for writing articles
I think is OK, and common practice. I
think HPB used "Radai Bai"(?) for writing
"The Caves and Jungles of Hindustan" for
a Russian paper, or otherwise. Judge
used them too. This is an innocent
practice, directly related to article
& book writing. But it is not the same
thing as using a phoney name to harrass
people, that you would not risk doing
with your real name.
Pen-names can be used for financial
and personal protection. If someone
thinks there is not persecution of
theosophists, then he is just blind or
naive. Carrithers (Adalai Waterman),
had his house attacked by armed men,
Endersby had someone try to run him
off the road (explained in "Theosophical
Notes"), and there are endless cases
never reported. This can all be explained
away, to coincidences, etc. - but the
real reason is that there are different
spheres of influence in occult nature.
If you attract the attention of the
wrong influences, strange things can
happen. The half-wit that attacks you
doesn't know why - he just knows "I
just don't like that guy!"
Anita Atkins also originally used her
real name in some Blavatsky defense work
(as appearing in 60's "Theosophical Notes.")
