control of Adyar has reduced the
of the General Council to the status
town hall officials.
The General Council members have been
creeping to Radha Burnier and her family for so long that they now can no
longer function as an effective governing body. Radha and her family ran
everything with the General Council really meeting in Adyar only to be told
what had been decided and what they would be allowed to do. They are now in the
position of having to obey Radhaís family and terrified of having to account
for this to the general membership. The members of the General Council have
become so accustomed to doing what they are told that they would rather suffer
the hostility of members than deal with the situation.
The General Council had over 30 years to
stand up to Radha Burnier to regain control of Adyar and the Society for the
members, but failed to do so. The botched move to cheat the members out of
voting rights in 2008 was an attempt by one group in the leadership, who didnít
think the members should have any rights, to replace the existing power group
in the leadership who also didnít think the members should have any rights. A
campaign against family control which involved the members may have had some
chance of success instead of enabling the Adyar controllers to strengthen their
position, and diminishing† the
credibility of the General Council. Nobody in the leadership wants to consider
the members, and power within the international Theosophical elite has only
ever been the consideration.
The General Council could involve the
members in the reforming the Adyar structure but refuse to do this, as it would
make them too accountable and threaten their privilege, and right to behave
like extras in a Miss Marple episode. The members have been cheated out of
their own organisation. We can expect another 30 years of family control but
this time even the International President will be as powerless and compliant
as the General Council. No wonder nobody wants to tell the members anything.
In relation to Adyar, the General
Council members have dropped to the same status as town hall officials but at
least a town hall official will tell you that he is just doing his job and he
has to obey his superiors. He may even refer you to contact his superiors in
case of query but can you imagine a General Council member or the International
President referring members to the Adyar controllers.
All that the General Council members
have left is the apparent prestige of being in a leadership role within an
international organisation. In their true role as functionaries they donít
really function all that well. Just look at the way in which they fail to
communicate with the paying members whose interests they are supposed to
