Enough of politics

So, no Theosophical entity should be engaged in partisan politics.  fine. 

That is settled. 

"What gives you the right to decide what laws should be made and what actions should be taken? - (Blavatsky said wisely: "Foolish is the gardener who seeks to weed his flower-bed of poisonous plants by cutting them off from the surface of the soil, instead of tearing them out by the roots. "

That is the role of all Men in the One.  To advocate what seems Just to them. 
is there an alternative?  
Letting the unseen Hand of Karma mystically govern our affairs without any involvement, thought or choice on our part?

HPB was not advocating Men not seek to govern themselves, surely. 

Your list is decent, and as you say, any New Ager can come up with many ways to work on their altruism.

Are we to reduce Theosophy's purpose to being a quite vague meeting of people gathering without any purpose other than to come together outside those horrid sects? And then hope this will somehow be fulfiilling? 

The results in the West will not be to hopeful with this approach, methinks. 

Rater, give Me ULT where they have an educational focus, beginning with the Epitome of Theosophy, setting out a working philosophy of life. 

Please keep your responses as concise as possible.  I don't know how much more time I can spend on this.
