Oh, MKR, why do you NEVER talk about the need for members of GC to take recourse to such a drastic action? Why do you keep pointing out to the symptoms and not look at the causes for the symptoms? That move was a symptom of, according to me of course, an entire bloc of the GC being at odds or variance with the President of the TS about how the TS is administered worldwide. One can treat the symptoms -- which symptoms if left unresolved at their root manifest in some other form eventually -- or one can root out the cause. Would you say prevention is better than cure? In most diseases, prevention is better than cure. In the TS as well -- prevention is better than cure. That attempt could also have been an attempt to prevent the monopolization of the TS by the President, couldn't it? This is just a more, no less.

      This sentence should read:

We are lucky that timely disclosure and broadcast

over Internet and furor caused by membership around the world resulted

in the plan to be NOT APPROVED last year.
