Musings on TS Presidential Elections

Here is a message I sent to a member from another continent who
contacted me relating to the elections. I thought it might be of some
interest to some.


Thanks.  I have been quite busy with several messages on theos-talk
and you may have seen them. The most interesting is the reports from
two doctors who have examined her (Radha) physical and mental condition and
have declared her fit.

It looks to me that the whole nomination issue seems to have been in
the works for the past several months and we do not know what are the
other considerations than health that was key.

Many times what we see is only a partial manifestation of something
more deep; I hope it is not something which is against Brotherhood
principle itself.

Why I say this is because many times people do wrong things but with good
motives of helping but end up harming the cause. We will have to see
how the matter develops.

If this had happened 15 years ago, everyone would have believed what
the leaders fed to the obedient followers and that would have ended the issue.

Today we should thank Internet which allows people to exachange
information around the world instanteneously. As the news media here
call, the velocity of news has increased.

One thing that I am unable to understand  is why the International HQ
did not collect the e-mail addresses of members all over world and on
a monthly basis a news letter could have been sent to all, thus
keeping in touch with membership.

If this had been done, when the electioneering started, it would have
been very easy to keep the membership informed with accurate factual
information so that they are not misled with inaccurate information to
influence the members to vote
one way or the other.

Let us all wait and hope that Truth will Triumph in the end.
