Neither bait nor assumption on my part at all. Here is what I read in the
Mailer Demon:

Authority you say? I thought the Aquarian keynote was individual freedom from
such Picean strictures? I gave a few reasons and a little evidence in the
article. You declared (based on clairvoyance, perhaps) I knew nothing or was
prejudiced or confused etc. In short you only repeat or paraphrase notions
from those silly Blue Books.

One of the main reasons for writing "Theosophy's Shadow" was to provide a
guideline or two on how to critically examine the two sets of teachings.
Since most devotees of any persuasion are not capable of self-criticism, much
less criticism of their own beliefs, philosophy, religion etc.; they ( and so
far, you) can only see the article as a mean-spirited attack.

Talk about "unreasonable declarations" - yipes!
