I know.  It's very out of character and I have to stop it before I'm  accused 
of being a serious person and there goes the public image.
I know these things have happened before and yes, at one level it is  
fascinating, certainly for me as a student not only of history but of politics,  but 
one of the things I've most loved about the Adyar society is the incredible  
mixture of people it has and which I fear will be lost if it blows itself to  
As far as Theosophy being disseminated, I don't think that happens very  much 
any more if only because no one can agree on what Theosophy is.  (And  I have 
a sneaking suspicion that even the founders had no idea and were sort of  
just making it up as they went along.)

I thought you would be saying, "now the good times are just  

What's happened to you??? :)

I must say  as a researcher of the history of the modern Theosophical 
Movement for  many years that all of this turmoil in the last 6 
months ---first with the  election of the international president and 
now with these proposed rule  changes --- is quite an interesting 
series of events to watch and  observe.

And it could even get more serious with sections breaking away  from 

But things like this have happened before. Remember  when in 1894-
1895 Judge and Besant/Olcott were going at it and the  American 
Section split off and the Esoteric School was split up. If Judge,  
Besant and Olcott could have cat fights...why not now??

And a  number of years ago the Canadian Section of the Adyar TS 
was "kicked" out.  et. etc.

And in the meantime is Theosophy being popularized and  disseminated 
to the public and to inquirers and future  students?
