But for the Internet, each one of us is intelligent enough to imagine where
TS would be today. We do not need guidance from any scripture or Elders.

A small group of GC members totally in control with all the members
world-wide standing by totally powerless to do anything. And HPB & HSO
crying and turning in their graves!

Internet last year saved TS from disaster.

Internet is indeed the Saviour many were expecting to come back.
