Theos-World Re: Secrete plan in Radha Burnier's head

If Sampsa thinks Krishnamurti's is true Theosophy and
Besant-Leadbeater gave false Theosophy, then why doesn't she join
Krishnamurti Foundation instead of Theosophical Society? 
Esoteric School is fully autocratic. Head of the Esoteric School
enjoys enormous powers which can not be challenged by others. And
generally, officers in the Esoteric School are controlling outside TS.
This ES is in many countries and it's head is Radha Burnier. 
Not only the ES, but the head of the International Co-freemasonry is
also Radha Burnier, and there also she has unchallengeable powers. As
many members of TS are also members of ES and Co-freemasonry, and
their prospects in these two organizations depend on Radha's favor,
they don't challenge Radha's decisions anywhere. I know what happened
to officers who challenged her. They lost whatever office they had and
became nothing.
This is the mechanism by which Radha Burnier enjoys autocratic powers
in TS, ES and Co-freemasonry. She has not allowed any high-caliber
person in TS to rise to high levels. It is because she thinks that
that person would defeat her in elections.
Now situation in TS is if Radha goes, there is no high-caliber person
holding high post at present, who can lead TS in future.
