Dear Anton,

Pardon me but they way you talk you assume every member of the GC has full time access to the internet and not only but also the knowledge on how to use it. This is not the case. Many GC members have not full time access to the internet, and do not know even how to use it. Maybe in 10 years from now this will be something possible, but currently is not.

Dear friends,

What is the main interest of the Theosophical Society as an 
international institution or common interest of all members of the 
Theosophical Society? 

In first place, to neutralize all partial interests of individual 
members or groups of members which identify themselves with those of 
the Theosophical Society and in that way to be able to realize its 
objects on the basis of its constitutional platform. In present 
situation common interest is wholly absent and crippled. 

The scissors and linen to overcome it are wholly in the hands of the 
elected President. She, and only she, has received a mandate to unify 
the Society under a common interest. She has the power and authority 
to do that. 

It is obvious that routine proceedings aren't enough to solve actual 
problem. According to Rules and Regulations the President has 
authority to: ? a special meeting may be called at any time by the 
President ? the President at his discretion may call such members to 
a meeting for the purpose of study and discussion of any matters 
concerning the Society that he considers appropriate to lay before 
them. The meeting may then forward to the President its report on 
such matters and may make recommendations thereon. Such meetings 
shall be of a consultative nature without administrative or 
legislative authority, or may be of a legislative nature upon the 
decision of the General Council taken at least one year in advance. 
In the event the President does not himself attend such a meeting he 
may appoint the Vice-President or some other member of the General 
Council to preside in his stead.

On the basis of these Regulations and with the use of internet 
technology an extended discussion panel can be formed to address 
important critical issues. With making such discussion panel public 
the Theosophical Society would show to its members and public in 
general that it is able to overcome divisions and find a common 
interest according to the philosophy the Society is promoting. 

This is, in my opinion, the only way out from the death alley we are 
catched in.

Warmest regards,
