Between Degrading Superstition and Still More Degrading Brutal Materialism

“Those ‘intellectual classes,’ reacting upon the ignorant masses which  they attract and which look up to them as noble and fit examples to follow, degrade and morally ruin those they ought to protect and guide.

Between degrading superstition and still more degrading brutal materialism the white dove of truth has hardly room where to rest her weary unwelcome foot. . . .” (Mahachohan. Letter with His visions. In C. Jinarajadasa, editor; Letters from the Masters of the Wisdom, 1st Series, p. 4. And The Mahatma Letters to A.P. Sinnett, p. 505. Emphasis added)
