Re: Theos-World Re: TS - Elvira Carbonell & her letter to GC
May 25, 2008 02:40 PM
It gets very interesting day by day.
My intent when I posted the message was someone can personally contact and
find out the real story behind Carbonell's e-mail to GC members.
Circumstantially, obviously the person who mailed the letters from
Pondicherry who had access to the members addresses and used it to mail the
letters to members in India.
I have a sense that this election could be one of the most critical to TS &
Theosophy and none of the members see it coming.
Let us see what next?
PS: When high level or low level individuals who handle important and
sensitive information are found to have violated confidence or misused their
position of trust, they are terminated instantly and escorted out of the
office and would not even be allowed to retrieve personal effects and office
locks changed so that they cannot do further mischief or damage. It may look
very odd, but businesses which have been burnt in the past have learnt
a lesson at a high cost.
