Re: Three Reasons to prefer Algeo over Burnier

Under the current President the Theosophical Society in Yugoslavia 
was broken to pieces, with fatal consequences - literary hundreds of 
people were prevented to work and learn within the frame of the 
Theosophical Society. The theosophical lodges in Croatia and Serbia 
ceased to exist (There remained a small theosophical nucleus in 
Croatia but it waits for recognition for years). In Slovenia this 
policy of exclusion continued and still continues, with several 
members leaving the Society or encouraged to leave when they develop 
an independent stand. The newcomers have to go through two years long 
preparatory seminar before they can become members, many are 
rejected. There are no public lectures (except when an international 
lecturer pays a visit), there are no new publications. These are dry 

So, from the perspective of an excluded member of the TS in Slovenia 
the situation probably can not be worse and any other President would 
be better then the current one. John Algeo's vision brings some hopes 
and it would be already an enormous step forward if the Theosophical 
Society in Slovenia would become a kind home for all who were and are 
willing to learn and work for theosophy and which will not kill all 
individual initiative.


By the way, does anybody know why there is a different voting time in 
Asia and Europe than in Americas?
