Well, it's better than the pronoun fight that raged a few years back.

Can you imagine what would happen to Mark Twain's books
were the Politically Correct revisionists able to
sanitize the text?

Now, in some recent historic discussions, I wonder if
the battle has shifted from pronouns to adjectives? <grin>

Somehow I think that an new organizational structure and
approach to the theosophical philosophy may be needed.
Look at the declining memberships and lack of impact in
the world. What worked for W.Q. Judge in the 1880's in
America in the days of the wild west does not seem quite
up to par for the needs of people today.

We can support the status quo with the existing
groups, and watch the slow decline. Or we can reconsider
what organizational and educational techniques exist
and can be applied in support of Theosophy.

I would make a distinction between the organizations,
which are tools we use to work together, and the
philosophy itself, which can be studied and taught
regardless of theosophical affiliation.
