I think he would rather it was put on video and broadcast on Youtube as  that 
is the new public square.  That is always the secret wish of  those who 
believe that X is TRUE and all other views are false, evil and  conducive to bad 
living, to say nothing of being a Jesuit plot.  There is a  reason why we in the 
TS have no holy writ, no creedal statements, no Oath of  Allegiance to 
Blavatsky and the Masters.  It is so that each member can  find that truth inside 
The idea that anyone should be deprived of access to any material, for any  
reason, is anathema to us, for that very reason.  It is not our place to  
control thought, to tell people what is right thinking or worse, right  belief.  We 
have more than enough people outside the TS willing to do that  for us.

Why not burn them in public  places, with sufficient notice given to 
those interested to attend? As a  matter of fact, why stop at 
Leadbeater's books? Why not include Besant's,  Arundale's, 
Jinarajadasa'Jinarajadasa'<WBR>s, Sri Ram's, Taimni's and perhap

In view of the statemts included in it, such as the ones below,  
should not "The Secret Doctrine" be also considered as a book whose  
sale may not be allowed to go on?

"The Aryan views of the symbolism  were those of the whole Pagan 
world; the Semite interpretations emanated  from, and were pre-
eminently those of a small tribe, thus marking its  national features 
and the idiosyncratic defects that characterize many of  the Jews to 
this day â gross realism, selfishness, and sensuality. They  had made 
a bargain, through their father Jacob, with their tribal deity,  self-
exalted above all others, and a covenant that his "seed shall be as  
the dust of the earth"; and that deity could have no better image  
henceforth than that of the symbol of generation, and, as  
representation, a number and numbers." (SD, vol. II, p. 470)

"But  Phallic worship has developed only with the gradual loss of the 
keys to  the inner meaning of religious symbols; and there was a day 
when the  Israelites had beliefs as pure as the Aryans have. But now 
Judaism, built  solely on Phallic worship, has become one of the 
latest creeds in Asia,  and theologically a religion of hate and 
malice toward everyone and  everything outside themselves. Philo 
JudÃus shows what was the genuine  Hebrew faith. The sacred Writings, 
he says, prescribe what we ought to do  . . . commanding us to hate 
the heathen and their laws and institutions.  They did hate Baal or 
Bacchus worship publicly, but left its worst  features to be followed 
secretly; and it is with the Talmudic Jews that  the grand symbols of 
nature were the most profaned. With them, as now  shown by the 
discovery of the key to the correct Bible reading â Geometry,  the 
fifth divine Science ("fifth" â because it is the fifth key in the  
series of the Seven Keys to the Universal esoteric language and  
symbology) was desecrated, and by them applied to conceal the most  
terrestrial and grossly sexual mysteries, wherein both Deity and  
religion were degraded." (SD, vol. II, p. 471)

On the other hand,  an easier solution would be to allow people the 
freedom to choose what  they want to read and study. Alas, this has 
always been the most difficult  path to follow, particularly for those 
bred and born with the nourishment  of the received truth.
