I tend to agree, but it's a factor to be dealt with out there in the olde spiritual smorgasbord. My point is that -- among the ones doing the shopping -- TM is considered pretty much the most pedestrian, least interesting, and least viable of the many spiritual paths. If you talk to people who are cruising the lectures and the bookstores in search of enlightenment or even a little peace these days, you'll find that for most of them learning TM is considered pretty much the last resort, a fallback position if nothing else works out for them. I've actually heard the phrase, "Well, you can always learn TM," followed by group laughter at the idea of some poor schmoe who is so out of it that the only thing he could learn is TM. I'm not saying it *should* be -- I actually think that plain vanilla TM is more beneficial than many of the things considered "hipper" -- but that's the way it is. I just think that the people who still think it's widely respected should get out more.
