Hi Bart and all of you,

But Bart:
Yes, but Theosophy should seek to create socail uplift in the world.
But, that is very difficult, when the world is so corrupt, that
it has nuclear bombs, and some of those who has them might really use them.
The it is a matter of EXISTENCE or non-EXSTENCE,
and not a matter of rules like is this politics or is this social uplift to
deal with this issue.

Don't you agree ?

M. Sufilight with his pals peace and love and patience...
