Why Freedom of Thought?

Why has freedom of thought been an important policy of the Theosophical Society since its beginning in 1875? Why is it that the books published by the different publishing houses within the Society, over more than a hundred years, have not been presented as its thought and teaching? And why have the writings of Madame Blavatsky – the main co-Founder of the TS – not been adopted as the official teaching of the Society? In order to address these questions we may have to go back twenty-five centuries.
