Well, maybe if the masses could see the "Nucleus of the Universal  
Brotherhood of Humanity" stop going nuclear on each other at every  opportunity...

Theosophy for the masses

Frequently, many find it hard to read much  of the periodical publications
put out are too difficult for an average  high school drop out to read and
assimilate. TS are not concerned only with  scholars and intellectuals.
Theosophy is for everyone, especially the less  educated and poor. I was
amazed to see this discussed by HPB which I  quote:

âTheosophists who refuse to even support The Path [the TS  magazine] as it
ought to be supported. And yet look around you, my brothers  and sisters. 
a sect, not a guild, or Society, however insignificant and  useless, and far
smaller than our Theosophical body, but has its recognized  organ.
Adventists, Christian Scientists, mind curers, Swedenborgians,  tradesmen,
and who not, have their dailies, weeklies, and monthlies. One  weekly or 
monthly sheet of only four pages is better than none; and if  we had not an
absolute and immediate necessity for such a defensive organ  now, it would
serve at all times for the dissemination of our theosophical  teachings, the
popularization of Theosophy and Eastern Ethics suited for  the intelligence
of the masses. Neither The Path nor Luciferââleast of all  The Theosophist,
are for the masses. To understand them requires educated  readers, and, in
most cases, high metaphysicians; and, therefore, none of  these magazines 
ever become popular. What you American Theosophists  require, indeed, are
extracts and a weekly paper as cheap as you can make  them. Have an organ
wherein to defend the Cause from insidious attacks,  from misrepresentation
and lies, and teach people the truth, and very soon  the enemy will have no
hold upon us. Teach the common laborer the truths he  fails to find in the
churches, and you will soon have saved half of the  mankind of civilized
countries, for the PATH is easier to the poor and the  single of heart, than
to the cultured and the rich.â

Today, with Internet we have the means to put out a publication  that HPB is
talking about. Let us all ponder about it.
