Society Presidential Election 2014
has little to do with what the paying members
as the silence and lack of information show.
real purpose of this election is for the General Council
deliver the candidate that the Adyar ruling elite wants.
Itís nice and cosy for the
Adyar ruling elite with its power base supported by the members aka ďBALLASTĒ,
†and its right to run Adyar like a feudal barony.
The one thing that the Adyar rulers certainly donít want is some outside
international president type person coming in and interfering. The election of
a new president therefore needs to be well managed.
But there may be an answer to
this problem in the form of a president who is planning an itinerant
presidency, and who is only going to drop in on Adyar every now and then for a
cup of tea. This has advantages for both president and Adyar ruling elite.
Firstly, the president will not have to bother about the situation at Adyar
regarding staff treatment and the actual control of the Adyar Estate, and
secondly the Adyar ruling elite can just get on with running their feudal power
base without let or hindrance.
Anybody opposing this idea
can always have their right to vote taken away, as has clearly been happening
in the Indian Section. After all, the purpose of the members is to provide
funding for the Adyar power base and not to participate in the running of the
Theosophical Society. To the elite, the affairs of the Society are of no
consequence beyond the walls of the Adyar Estate unless they threaten its power
base. The General Council ensure that the elite has no need to worry, and that
the members are the losers.
The chain of the command in
the Society works like this; the orders come from the Adyar ruling elite, which
constitutes the decision making executive.†
These orders are read out to the General Council who implement compliant
action within the broader Society. If the orders are detrimental to the
integrity of the General Council then a rule of silence is imposed, thus
excluding paying members from any say in the running of their own organisation.
The General Council, by the own compliance, also have no say in the running of
an organisation which they are supposed to be running.
Tim Boyd was nominated by the
Indian General Secretary and there has been discontent over this in the Indian
Section, which the ruling elite tried to crush in order to maintain their grip
on power. It is Indian members themselves who have mounted resistance while the
General Council obediently stood back and kept quiet. ďLeader Command and We
ObeyĒ appears to be the mantra of the General Council.
Clearly Tim Boyd is the Adyar
eliteís choice as a compliant president who wonít rock the Adyar boat. The
General council have been told this and are doing their best to ensure that the
ruling elite gets what it wants. They are prepared to suppress information and
turn a blind eye to election irregularities in order to appease their Adyar
