IMO Politics is simply noise - it changes nothing - it exists in ideologies - it has no moral value whatsoever - why should HPB spend her time involved in something that will never change men's thinking nor give an understanding to real truths - to get involved in one's own or another man's politics is to draw unwanted karma to oneself - politics which always lead to war - is as KM says a totalitarian projection of individual inner conflict and if one is conflicted it seems highly unlikely that one will have any space for spiritual or moral evolution.Â Politics and intellectualism is patented by the Lower Ego to keep attention on itself.
If the Buddha tells us to question anything and everything that is said - even by him - then HPB is certainly not the exception to the rule - nor I believe would she have it any other way.Â Blind adherence to any teaching is self programming, imo.

Letter #81 of the ML, there seems to be nothing metaphorical about
what KH is asking Sinnett to do. Is that a metaphor for what? That
looks very much like political operative work. So with evidence of
political work in writing I would ask "so what?" What makes political
work wrong or undesirable?
Regarding the tentative nature of Johnson's statements. That's what I
would expect when someone is suggesting an alternate theory. To state
something as an absolute truth when it may or may not be is unwise.
Wouldn't you agree? Or is HPB and her teachers to be worshipped as
some kind of tin goddess? The 1900 Letter to Besant is very clear on
