The iron fist policies discussed here are apparently worldwide –
Please note – I have examined carefully various documents between the Acting OHO, the GTG and the V* Brother who wrote me as below, and various other factors. Clearly, the situation Brother Theba describes is quite similar under the authority of International Grand Lodge that we have found, resisted and been thrown out for speaking up on, under auspices of the subservient U.S. Grand Lodge. Mismanagement, heavy-handed draconian rulings concerning senior members who dare to speak up against mismanagement, and similar practices are apparently not confined to U.S. Grand Lodge. It is systemic, and point again to the need for a review of administrative policies, treatment of members, and the need for Mr. Breeze and Mr. Scriven to step down from their positions of trust. It wasn't too many years ago when what was then Yugoslavia was the fastest growing territory of the OTO, but like the country itself, that time is gone with the winds of change. Split in Dalmatia (in Croatia) is famous for its surviving villa of Gaius Aurelius Valerius Diocletianus, who divided the Roman Empire and who became the first Roman Augustus to retire from office voluntarily, to his villa, around which the appropriately-named city of Split grew into being. Make of this what thou wilt. The treatment of Brother Theba confirms Philip K. Dick's sage observation, "the Empire never ended". So far.

Dear Brother Allen
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
My name is Sergije Vuli. - Fr. IAO V*; 42-years old ex-member of the O.T.O. - from March ’89- August ’96, former Treasurer of Croatia, ex-Master of ex-Theba Camp-Oasis from ’96-Aug. 2006, ex-Initiator, EGC Priest…
We need your help. Last Summer I was expelled from Ordo Templi Orientis, and Theba Oasis which I was leading closed, still unofficially – with no papers, but by the decision of Fr. Superior made in August in
position by FSR in
We in our community, Theba Oasis, continuing to work as usual -- Gnostic masses, group ceremonial rituals like the Rites of Elusis, some witchcraft rituals and more, without initiations and any formal system or consecration. I am aware that it is not possible to endure in that state forever, that we must find a new link with the upper triad, secret masters, blessings from real Gnostic bishops, instructions…So we need your help, your advice or information where to ask or find what we need.
In hope that you will find a time and energy to communication that we can find what we are looking for.
