Your points are well taken.

While there may be some really bad apples (who consciously or unconsciously
violate the first object and the motto of TS), the society still has a large
number of simple minded, dedicated, unselfish, honorable members and
leaders. I still feel that TS has a great potential to do a lot of good to a
lot of people even after all of us are gone to the astral world!!!

People come and go. Theosophy, to me is about change in our daily lives to
make the lives of our brothers and sisters better, however little the
effects may be. So it is the duty of every theosophist to fight the forces
which act against the first object and the motto of TS, so the TS will be
available for posterity. While this may be a "Forlorn Hope", at least it is
well-motivated one. There is always hope and unexpected help when our
motivations are good.
