Re: Lack of Diversity is Existential threat to American Theosophy
Short fall in membership is a universal matter. Apart from this , non following of the Original Program is responsible for all issues. Theosophy needs to be brought to every doorstep by precept and practice.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Thanks for sharing your observations. As everyone knows all the activities are concentrated and all money spent at National level (Kern foundation grants $1million+/yr) and reduction in branch level grass roots activities and also branches sending off lion’s share of money to National HQ (Cleveland lodge sent $50,000 to Wheaton and donated $11k for local charities.) Future members can only come from branches. There is no indication as yet of the leadership seeing the need to come with plans to increase branch level activities essential for future survival of TS in USA. Looks like leaders tend to think all wisdom lies with them and comments or critique are not welcome - either ignored or the commentator may have to pay a price for not keeping quiet! Let us keep tuned.
