Well, in her time H. P. Blavatsky even found it important to tell the Spiritists and the Silly Hat in Rome where to so to speak put their "Biblical atoms".

    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.
