I worked with corporate executives and couldn't disagree more. I can't begin to see Bevan functioning outside the unique movt envt, esp at this point when he comes across as so imbalanced. I can't imagine bringing bevan in to try to talk executives into starting tm, or bevan successfully running an organization. Bevan never ran the university on a day to day practical level. He's hardly been there the past 20 yrs, except periodically to fire people not deemed loyal and generally keep up the fear and cult atmosphere. Before his leadership the university was an intellectually and spiritually exciting place. It's been in decline ever since. Getting purusha to take out student loans in the 80s saved the place financially then, and whoever came up with the idea of importing african students as a way for them to visas as computer programmers is keeping it afloat now. Of course donations still come in for building projects because that gets points with MMY, not because of bevan. No way it could survive by attracting and keeping normal western students, the atmosphere is just too culty and the academics too weak, that's all bevan's doing. What specific project has bevan ever led that has been successful? In reality I mean, not in fancy talks and brochures, or in tmo press releases or internal conferences. My experience in the tmo was that things got accomplished by the talented and devoted foot soldiers despite the efforts of people like bevan, not due to them. > > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, Rick Archer <fairfieldlife@> > wrote: > > > > on 3/25/06 5:16 PM, MDixon6569@ at MDixon6569@ wrote: > > > > > In a message dated 3/25/06 12:07:34 P.M.
