Well said. Germany's peace position (which is not an ostrich position) in the
UN Security council was denounced by the "falks" in Brainwashington as "disloyality"
and "isolation" of herself.
Last Saturday 10 million people over the world demonstrated that rather those in the
governments in the USA, Britain and Spain have isolated from their own citizens.
The present situation looks remarkable similiar to the situation of 1938/9.
Do the nations follow blind an old astral track? Is there no escape?
"Katherine Tingley uttered a truism when she said "Unbrotherliness is an insanity
of the Age." Therefore our "enemy", as Theosophists, should not be this or that
nation, but the act of unbrotherliness. When therefore a nation or alliance of nations
sets up to fight another nation, or alliance of nations, it is culpable of an immoral
act against Humanity.
What other alternative we have? Norman Angell, the protagonist of philosophical
Peace, once said, "I look forward to a time when at the inception of war, all the
other nations will be ready to rush to the conflagration to put it out, like a fire."
It is nobody's business separately, but everybody's business collectively to stop
the conflagration. But as long as we are inflamed by nationalism or hatred of other
people, or what is still more ignoble and foul, by turning to war as a means of
swelling our bank account, we are building up for ourselves a veritable Hell."

Subject: Re: Theos-World Re: white brotherhood and war
This subject could perhaps read, "The White Brotherhood and Peace,"
after the tremendous international, global demonstration of the work
done by the Masters of Compassion daily, hourly, for the benefit of
Their younger brothers and sisters, humanity. Millions and millions
of people from all nations marched in the streets last Saturday in
solidarity with the forces of Light, of Love and Brotherhood. There
has never been such an outpouring of response to the work constantly
quietly being done for us. It makes one think that the darkness is
indeed banished to the Abyss.
