The Future? of the
Adyar Theosophical Society
An appraisal of the
General Councilís commitment
to maintaining the
Adyar Theosophical Society
as a democratic body.
With allegations of electoral
irregularities ignored and
discussion of issues
suppressed, it is now reasonable to
democratic credentials of the General Council.
The slightest hint that an
electoral process is being undermined and the leadership of most reputable
organisations would do double somersaults backwards to sort it out, followed by
sworn affidavits over the 1956 Beezer Annual (or equivalent) to assure everyone
that everything was now correct and above board. If irregularities were found,
the people responsible would be exposed and called to account. Any election
found to be undermined would be re-run under stricter supervision to ensure
that the resulting elected official had full credibility.
The governing General Council
of the Adyar Theosophical Society sees things differently and prefers to ignore
any allegations of corruption or irregularities in the electoral process. The
importance of the integrity of the democratic process comes a very poor second
behind the need for a quiet life, and a belief that it is better to tolerate a
bent organisation to maintain unity. No heroic stand for democracy here but
there again, the General Council has proved that it canít make a stand on
The question now arises as to
how many members of the General Council are concerned that the Adyar
Theosophical Society is actually a democratic organisation. Look at the track
record of the General Council with its strange internal nominations process,
current secrecy and the 2008 attempt to cheat the members out of their voting
rights. There are some impressive anti-democratic credentials displayed here
and some may say strong fascist leanings.
From the course of events
since Radha Burnierís death, it has become clear however that the General
Council does not actually control the Theosophical Society, and that the power
lies with vested interests elsewhere.†
Although there may be some General Council members with strong fascist
leanings, it is more likely that the Council consists of ineffectives, and
stooges of those with power. The General Council hoped to conceal its true
powerless situation by imposing a news blackout on all Society affairs
(actually thatís a bit fascist) thus allowing a quiet transition of power to
the new controllers. The strategy isnít working as events are now overtaking
the paralysed General Council, with publicised allegations of irregularities in
the presidential election, and news of the obvious consolidation of family
control at the Adyar Headquarters. It is becoming clear that the Adyar
Theosophical Society does not pass muster as a democratic organisation and
without fundamental reform, the break-up is inevitable.
