“YOUR great country I love so much for its noble freedom,” wrote the principal founder of modern Theosophy Mme. H. P. Blavatsky in addressing The Theosophical Society Second Annual Convention in 1888.
“A large part of my heart and much of my hope for Theosophy lie with you in the United States, where the Theosophical Society was founded, and of which country I myself am proud of being a citizen.”
“You must remember that,” she added, “although there must be local Branches of the Theosophical Society there can be no local Theosophists; and just as you all belong to the Society, so do I belong to you all.” (H. P. Blavatsky Letter I — Second Annual Convention)
But not so fast. What would Mme. Blavatsky have said about this country if she lived today? Today at every level government interference in our individual freedoms has become epidemic. Does the government have the right, for example, to force it’s citizens to choose between educating their children and vaccinating them?
Mme. Blavatsky’s Adept Teachers made clear Their views on “evil” (Letter 10). The ills of humanity fall into two main categories, they said. And the effects of such evils plays out every day in our individual and collective lives.
“Evil is the exaggeration of good, the progeny of human selfishness and greediness [are] nearly two thirds of the evils that pursue humanity ever since that cause became a power.”
In The Secret Doctrine Mme. Blavatsky declares: “Practical Theosophy is not one Science, but embraces every science in life, moral and physical.” (Summing Up section of The Secret Doctrine 1:269): but ….. “it is clear that modern science believes not in the ‘soul of things.”

CHOICE is meaningless if consumers are not able to make informed decisions.
And the cornerstone of our capitalist market, for better or worse, is consumer choice.
The debate over genetically modified organisms (G.M.O.’s) used in our foods has been long and controversial.
Those decrying “frankenfood” railing against those portraying the process as the savior from food shortages and high food prices.
The battle over labeling these foods has been gaining significant traction in recent weeks, with states like Colorado putting labeling initiatives on their ballots for the upcoming elections.
Consumer empowerment should be central in G.M.O. labeling debate.
In preparation of the global March Against Monsanto, you are invited to watch our award-winning documentary Seeds of Death free.
The leaders of Big Agriculture—Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta—are determined that world’s populations remain ignorant about the serious health and environmental risks of genetically modified crops and industrial agriculture.
Deep layers of deception and corruption underlie both the science favoring GMOs and the corporations and governments supporting them.

EVERY child is a spark of God and Higher Mind. The educational tradition put forward by Theosophy is in line with ancient philosophies and modern theories.
These place the emphasis on joy, serenity of mind, harmony with the laws of nature, and recognize reason and intuition as powers innate and educable in us all.
Creative talent is one of the spiritual powers in human beings, part of the spectrum of consciousness that includes the faculties of understanding, of discrimination, and of direct knowing.
Maximizing these, Mme. Blavatsky wrote in her Key to Theosophy (pp. 270-71), “children should above all be taught self-reliance, love for all men, altruism, mutual charity, and more than anything else, to think and reason for themselves,”
“We would reduce the purely mechanical work of the memory to an absolute minimum, and devote the time to the development and training of the inner senses, faculties and latent capacities.
“We would endeavour to deal with each child as a unit, and to educate it so as to produce the most harmonious and equal unfoldment of its powers,” she says, “so that its special aptitudes should find their full natural development. We should aim at creating free men and women, free intellectually, free morally, unprejudiced in all respects, and above all things, unselfish.”
