Well said.
It looks like exposure to the occult ideas seem to make many leaders think
that they are wiser and know what is good for members and for TS and members
do not know what is good for them and TS.
So there is no need for leaders to talk to members, because most of the
members will meekly accept whatever comes from the top and follow the
leaders. I say this because, even after witnessing all the events starting
with the election and subsequent allegations and the cleavage demonstrated
by the votes in the GC meeting, even none of the wise "elders" have said a
word. The silence is deafening.
Have we not seen what some leaders tried to do secretly last year. Take away
our voting rights, (disenfranchisement is the technical term) in this age of
democracy, so that they can seize the power to appoint and control the
president. But for Internet and disclosure of the plan, was the luck of the
members and TS, and this would have been a done deal.
We have not seen any regret or apology from the proponents of the seizure of
the presidency which raises a big red flag. So we have assume that they are
still committed to disenfranchise all of us and everyone should be vigilant
and talk to their respective leaders, because once disenfranchised, that
would be beginning of end of TS as we know it.
Also the cleavage in GC continues and one wonders who benefits from its
continuance while we know it does not help TS or theosophy.  It would be
welcome if we hear what is being done by any leader to eliminate it.
