I have considered forming a Theosophical Society on Second Life.

should be formed, since the  unworthy people will strand on pornsites while 
others may find their  way toTheosophy...

I think the key  came in an brief exchange in the Olcott Library many years 
An elderly  lady was staying at Olcott for a short time, doing something 
Theosophical,  and she came into the library walked into the stacks and 
asked why 
the  writings of Alice Bailey were there, not because of any objection to 
they said, but because, as she said, they were all stolen from the  
Section teachings.

That alone would send them up the walls  and over the battlements.

This was a very  contemporary article to have been written a hundred years 
As for the  "dethroning of popes" that still is the main thing needed IMO. 
now in  addition to an authoritarian mindset on behalf of the current 
the popes of 100 years ago are untouchable, beyond criticism, still  
even though long dead. 

I would think that Morten and I  agree about the relative value of the 
of Leadbeater and Bailey  compared to those of HPB. I'd be equally 
to spend time on  either one, but if others in a group wanted to study them 
not  object, just skip those classes. But the difference in the TS is that  
nothing negative can ever said about the former, nothing positive about  
latter, without making The Powers That Be extremely uncomfortable.  What is 
about Bailey in particular that creates such a paranoid  atmosphere 
the TS?
