We agree on this.

          Hello Cass and fellow theosophists.
That is an interesting point.
I privately have the opinion that Ray 1 souls can be very benefical,
but as they go through experience in the lower planes, they deal with
destruction, command and impulse. I particularly see Churchill,
Hitler, and why not many of today´s politicians on this Ray, at least
on the observable Personality level.
I would say nevertheless, there are some on other Rays. Just of
curiosity, my thoughts are Spain´s Zapatero is on 7th, Venezuela´s
Hugo Chavez is on 6th, Iran´s Ahmadinejad is on 3rd, Russia´s Putin
and China´s (I forgot his name now) are on 1st. Bush is probably on
2nd (the son, his father is on 1st).

All armies in the world are expressions of Ray 1. This sums up very
much of this Ray as it is being expressed. It is masculine, (+),
imperative and destructive although it reflects and holds back
(thought) in order to use the least possible force with wisdom. Just
some thoughts.

Souls on this ray learn by transgressions of power to an
understanding of its constructive nature. One would imagine that
Churchill, Hitler, and even the other despots are ruling 1.
