Then I guess the theosophy lists will stay mighty. The great thing about
the lists is that all sorts of viewpoints are given, Dallas (HPB), Brenda
(Masters), K. Paul (ARE), Doss (Krisnamurti), Alan (Kabalah), pro-con
current administration, etc. I doubt that I would get as much critical
analysis in a regular meeting. A regular meeting, from what I know, is
pretty much regulated and confined to particular topics. Also, people are
not as likely to be as vocal when in a physical group of people.
The negative side is that you don't have the energy and contact of
face-to-face interaction. Also, without people supporting those
institutions, where would lectures, events and meetings be held? I'm sure
there are lots of pro and cons to this. I'm just running things off the
top of my head.
