There are two aspects in connection with administration. On the one hand,
the dissemination of the message of theosophy; on the other in many places
the organization and its branches own very valuable properties and many
devoted members have bequeathed money and properties to TS, which need to be
protected. So the mixture of theosophy and the property and money makes the
situation very complicated and invites politics etc.

Also when you are in power, you are able to make and do things to make sure
the followers toe the official line due to fear now or hearafter or one's
livelihood if one has a job paid by the organization or by providing
opportunites of sponsored as "official speaker/ lecturer".

This is the situation that all organizations face sooner or later. Without
Internet we may have never known of some of what we have learnt here about
the elections and remote control management contemplated.
