Maybe we should give an opportunity to the TS officers to act as ordinary members here and stop challenging them as "leaders" at any cost, for in that way we are only deepening the gap, the separation, between "them" and "us". Let us rather challenge their visions, ideas, proposals as we do with those of anybody else. Let us give them opportunity to prove that they were elected because they can offer or are open for new solutions to the problems in their service to the TS.
