Caldwell in the Drugstore

Some time ago, I had thie dialogue with Mr. Caldwell t Theos-talk. 




You should open a drugstore and sell both authentic and false medicines,
so that people can judge by themselves which ones are fake, which ones are authentic. 

The DEA will understand you. 

Think about that. Discuss it with your friend "David Green". 

(Likewise, Theosophy is meant to heal one's soul, and it must be preserved, as much as possible, from shameful falsehoods no one has had the courage to defend as true facts so far, not even you.) 

Regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline
