As far as I am concerned Adyar can sink as deep as Atlantis did - it's website is a selling conduit - I would hate to see the American societies close as they keep HPB's cause alive by providing free online access to her works. What they have to decide is whether or not to be purists or psuedo theosophists

Subject: Theos-World The Theosophical Society versus the Theosophical Cause???

In August, 1889, H.P. Blavatsky wrote:

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -
...It is pure nonsense to say that "H.P.B. . . . is loyal to the
Theosophical Society and to Adyar"(!?). H.P.B. is loyal to death to
the Theosophical CAUSE, and those great Teachers [the Mahatmas] whose 
philosophy can alone bind the whole of Humanity into one Brotherhood. 
Together with Col. Olcott, she is the chief Founder and Builder of 
the Society which was and is meant to represent that CAUSE; and if 
she is so loyal to H. S. Olcott, it is not at all because of his being
its "President," but, firstly, because there is no man living who has
worked harder for that Society, or been more devoted to it than the
Colonel, and, secondly, because she regards him as a loyal friend and
co-worker. Therefore the degree of her sympathies with
the "Theosophical Society and Adyar" depends upon the degree of the
loyalty of that Society to the CAUSE. Let it break away from the
original lines and show disloyalty in its policy to the CAUSE and the
original programme of the Society, and H.P.B., calling the T. S.
disloyal, will shake it off like dust from her feet.

And what does "loyalty to Adyar" mean, in the name of all
wonders? What is Adyar, apart from that CAUSE and the two (not one
Founder, if you please) who represent it? Why not loyal to the
compound or the bath-room of Adyar? Adyar is the present Headquarters
of the Society, because these "Headquarters are wherever the
President is," as stated in the rules. To be logical, the Fellows of
the T. S. had to be loyal to Japan while Col. Olcott was there, and
to London during his presence here. There is no longer a "Parent
Society"; it is abolished and replaced by an aggregate body of
Theosophical Societies, all autonomous, as are the States of America,
and all under one Head President, who, together with H. P. Blavatsky,
will champion the CAUSE against the whole world. Such is the real
state of things....
