Thank you for your comment. It is good for us to look for eternal things and not the temporary. Presidency is temporary. It does not lead to transformation. Let us be transformed. If we are transformed, leadership will be chosen by the Hierarchy and there would be no questioning.

One of the good things that has happened in our discussions here is, now
there seems to be a world-wide audience and more information is coming out.
The second good thing that is going to have a long term impact will be due
to archiving of the messages here.
If a prospective member googled "TS Election", he/she will find such a large

in TS. One may even get the idea that Brotherhood is for preaching to
followers and other gullible members but not for practicing when elections
