On page one of the December edition you see “Taking Lessons From the Cruelties of the Past”, which says:
“An important task in the 21st century is to understand the past and unmask the illusions that provoke cruelty, so that the nightmare of mass-murder may disappear from human history for good.”
On page 3 we have the note “Ukraine, Russia and Blavatsky”, by Sylvia Cranston. On the same page the reader has the link to a thoughtful and balanced article on Ukraine by the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin. Theosophists do not applaud the present attempts to fabricate a new Cold War – a tool to expand fear, violence, and the costly production of nuclear weapons.
