Why should the list "aught" to be something? The statement on the
website, imo, is clear enough: "Discussion on topics regarding
Theosophy (or theosophy) and its realization in the modern world."
And isn't political expediency one of the factors in the modern world
that prevent the principles of Theosophy to become a reality in our

The word politics comes from the Greek *polites*, "citizen", which in
its turn comes from *polis*, "city". Although its usual meaning today
is 'art and science of government; political affairs or life and
political principles', in its essence politics has to do with
citizens and their relationship with the larger community and,
therefore, with each other. As I see it, this has everything to do
with Theosophy and it (Theosophy) can throw light on how politics
could be conducted for the greater good of all.

So far I haven't seen any evidence here that Theosophy (or theosophy)
is not important, although there are different views about what it is.
