Theosophy politically involved at the United Nations?

My views are:
Is the Alice A. Bailey groups and LUCIS TRUST really non-political?
AND is this coinciding with H. P. Blavatsky's and H. S. Olcott's teachings?
At the front page on the LUCIS TRUST hompage - The Alice A. Bailey groups main website if any we find that the claim to be a non-political group:
The worldwide activities of the Lucis Trust, founded by Alice and Foster Bailey, are dedicated to establishing right human relations.
The activities of the Lucis Trust promote the education of the human mind towards recognition and practice of the spiritual principles and values upon which a stable and interdependent world society may be based. The Lucis Trust is non-political and non-sectarian. It sponsors no special creed or dogma.
Seven years after the birth of the U.N., a book was published by the theosophist and founder of the Lucis Trust, Alice Bailey, claiming that,
"Evidence of the growth of the human intellect along the needed receptive lines [for the preparation of the New Age] can be seen in the "planning" of various nations and in the efforts of the United Nations to formulate a world plan... From the very start of this un-foldment, three occult factors have governed the development of all these plans".
[Alice B. Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age (Lucis Press, 1955), Vol.II, p.35.]
Although she did not spell out clearly the identity of these 'three occult factors', she did reveal to her students that,
"Within the United Nations is the germ and seed of a great international and meditating, reflective group - a group of thinking and informed men and women in whose hands lies the destiny of humanity. This is largely under the control of many fourth ray disciples, if you could but realize it, and their point of meditative focus is the intuitional or buddhic plane - the plane upon which all hierarchical activity is today to be found".
To this end, the Lucis Trust (formerly known as the Lucifer Trust), under the leadership of Foster and Alice Bailey, started a group called 'World Goodwill' - an official Non-Governmental Organization within the United Nations. The stated aim of this group is "to cooperate in the world of preparation for the reappearance of the Christ" [One Earth, the magazine of the Findhorn Foundation, October/November 1986, Vol. 6, Issue 6, p.24.]

Now, I would really like to know, what your answer is?
If not, I ask why not?
