I need to elaborate my comments about no one from Krotona having spoken
about the developments since the start of the nomination process and
developments subsequent to the election.
There are two key events that I feel members, especially long-time ones,
everywhere should have commented on.
First is the lay men's and women's claim that Radha Burnier is sick both
physically and mentally, which was shot down by professional opinions of
three independent physicians, one a highly regarded long-time member of TS
and Secretary of a Section. The second one and a serious critical one, is
the ultra secret attempt to quickly disenfranchise members world-wide and GC
members seizing the power to appoint the president, in spite of they already
having the monopoly of nominating the candidates. The latter one would have
been a fait accompli but for the good luck of TS and its members and help
from theos-talk in making members learn about the secret move. (Mind you,
even long term members and volunteers at Adyar and other national centers
did not know about it and found out from theos-talk.) In such situations,
normally a quick apology would be forth coming and I have not seen any
todate. If this had happened in Japan, the proponents would have left for
the astral world.
Members in Krotona could have spoken on the above events in support of Radha
Burnier and TS. But no one did. We know for sure, many residents at Krotona
use internet and could have posted messages here for free. What were they
afraid of? It does not make logical sense to ordinary members like me. May
be someone who has knowledge about the inner workings of TS can enlighten
all of us.
