Among my odder friends is an internet evangelist and conspiracy nutcase  
(and yes, he is a friend) who is, of course, convinced that all the evil in 
the  world comes from HPB and Alice Bailey and he cannot quite understand why 
I don't  agree with him.  And I have a great deal of trouble not laughing in 
his  chatroom when he gets going on Alice Bailey.

Hi Chuck
You are correct in assuming AAB utilized all of her training  and acquired 
knowledge in the Esoteric Section to work with her additional  
contributions. I 
am familiar with the esoteric work of the Theosophical  society and what 
wrote and she does expand and take these concepts  into new and expanded 
This is why I continually ask those who  doubt this possibility to study 
material of AAB's themselves and come  to their own conclusions.

Thanks Chuck for your continued support of  hilarity, parody, farce, 
occult street theater and humor. We  all take this work way to seriously 
and you 
keep us honest.
Best  Duane

Well, never actually having seen the ES material I have no personal  
for making a comparison, only being able to say that I never heard  anyone 
in the ES laugh at the comment.

I think  the key came in an brief exchange in the Olcott Library many years 
ago. 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 what they said, but because, as she said, they were all  
stolen from 

the Esoteric 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 
ago! As for the  "dethroning of popes" that still is the main thing needed 
IMO. But now in  addition to an authoritarian mindset on behalf of the 
current leadership,  the popes of 100 years ago are untouchable, beyond 

still enthroned even though long dead. 

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

atmosphere throughout the TS?
