Re: Theos-World TS Elections - Radha Burnier's Letter - Some Observations

Radha's statement, per Pablo Sender, that she "had sent that letter only to
a few people that asked her about her opinion" does not square with
Oliveira's statement in his timeline that the letter was addressed "to all
General Secretaries of the TS, stating her personal views about the
nomination process and highlighting the importance of Presidents of the TS
to reside at Adyar."

Are we talking about the same letter here?

March 12, 2008 letter by Radha Burnier

Three possibilities:

1) The letter was private. Therefore it's unproblematic. It's her opinion to
which she's entitled with her friends and she might be right.

2) The letter was to all General Secretaries intended as a response to Ms.
Carbonell's letter, to which Burnier was entitled as Oliveira points out:
"Mrs Radha Burnier, about
whom some presumptions were made in Ms Carbonell's letter to some General
Council members, of necessity, as is her right, has had to state her
position and her  ntentions in relation to the forthcoming election for
international President."

3) The letter was to all General Secretaries expressing her position. If so,
then it was electioneering and therefore sufficient grounds for General
Secretaries to respond and/or protest.

Which is the case?

These is a statement of Pablo Sender On theosophy Forum...
Dont be liar MKR. We should not be thankful to see a letter forwarded
without consent.
"Hi all,

Radha told me she had sent that letter only to a few people that asked her
about her opinion. But then some of them forwarded it without her consent.
She didn't want to campaign. As a result she now refuses to answer to any
question saying that she has nothing to add. Fortunatelly John was able to
manage not to enter in other's people controversy.
As usual, the problem is caused by those who, in their over-zealousness get
things mixed up, because now several members with no official
responsibilities feel they have the right to write their opinions, forward
private letters, etc. Of course they have, but that shows me that we are,
generally speaking, not mature enough, and that the laws of the world still
rule on us. "

Asunto: Theos-World TS Elections - Radha Burnier's Letter - Some

We all should be thankful for seeing Radha Burnier's letter dated March 12,
2008 on the Internet. We all should be grateful to Radha Burnier for writing
the letter. Some may have not noticed its importance. It provided critical
information to members.

It is in that letter we found out what the real plans of Algeo are. While we
saw a 78 year old man's vision (most effective visions are from young men
and women in 20s and 30s; go and look at world's history) on his website,
his specific intentions/plans/ situation are covered by generalizations.

Radha Burnier's letter states:

"Dr. Algeo who is around 78, does not like the climate here, nor can he
leave the United States for more than a short time, in view of his wife's
condition. I believe that if elected he intends to work largely from America
through e-mail and video conversations. "

I have not seen any disputation of the above from Algeo or his surrogates.

Some old-timers (who are used to keeping things unnecessarily secret) were
surprised to see the letter on the Internet. If Radha Burnier had intended
the letter to be private, it would have been marked "PRIVATE". So no one
should be surprised to see it on the Internet. Anything put in writing may
surface on Internet.

All the important messages on the election can be found at the link at the
end of this msg.

We all should be thankful to Internet and those who setup the maillists and
the author of the link below. But for the Internet, the election would have
been over long time ago.
