Re: Theos-World Re: Independent Inquiry into the TS Election

Whatever may be our analysis of election events, the fact is the election is

I think this is the first time in history, the bright light of publicity has
shown on so many top leaders (perhaps to their surprise and shock!) because
of Internet and no one could have in their wildest dreams imagined it. This
includes even those leaders who have not cared (for whatever reason) to
participate in this unmoderated maillist. You will find that in future all
leaders will keep at the back of their mind, the possibility of bright light
of Internet shining on all their actions which they could be confident
be kept secret in the past.

I hope everyone comes out wiser and TS a more stronger organization.
Also, fortunately, all our discussions will be archived by Yahoo for
posterity and future members will have the benefit of knowing how the
election was conducted.

As a side comment, it has been my experience that historical information
which I had never known for decades, and no one in theosophical circles
would talk about, I came to know in a couple of years on this and other
mailing lists.
