Methinks you got it right the first time, Ted. Buddhists, or latter day Buddha admirers, are ignorant of history and learning, and they don't understand their own movement. Buddha was a charlatan full of guru tricks; he sat under the Bodhi tree and made some wacky things up, calling it Enlightenment. He borrowed heavily from the Vedas, and his followers have a credulous and naive relationship to his claims. Krishna, of course, just like Jesus Christ, never wrote an autobiography in his senior years probably because he couldn't remember anything. (Only scholars like PS can refresh such memories.) I'm positive that Der Staudi can recommend some academic atheist Sanskrit scholars who can debunk not only Buddhism but also Hinduism. Many Buddhists have only learned about this philosophy through translations. The late George Harrison, for instance, was completely ignorant of the history of his own movement.
Rudolf Steiner read Sanskrit, of course, in addition to Hebrew, Latin, Greek and Aramaic: The classical languages indispensable to serious historians. He didn't learn any contemporary languages (other than his native German), but Marie von Sivers made up for that with her command of five or six European languages (plus her thorough knowledge of the arts).
Anyway if PS should target Buddhists and Hindus, or latter day Buddha and Krishna admirers, he would have to compete with the Doctor himself as well as Sanskrit scholars, many of whom are Buddhists, Hindus, Theosophists and Anthroposophists themselves, and some of these may even be esotericists, and they're the worst of the lot because they understand weird and wacky things like different stages of consciousness. The Sugar Cherubs are so frustrated by not comprehending the topic of consciousness -- or epistemology for that matter -- that they choose to write it all off as "racial thinking," because this sounds to them sufficiently derogatory and inflammatory to warrant repeated Hate-athons. We run Lovathons and they answer with Hate-athons.
It's all quiet on the Sugar Front these days, which usually indicates they're up to something (if they're not only licking their wounds because of all the love we've sent them or sinking into sheer boredom).
Or maybe it's like WWI with nine years instead of four. The stench of the trenches, the rats, lice, rotting bodies in shallow graves, poison gas, stagnant mud, etc.
"Rats were a constant companion in the trenches in their millions they were everywhere, gorging themselves on human remains (grotesquely disfiguring them by eating their eyes and liver) they could grow to the size of a cat.
"Men tried to kill them with bullets shovels or anything else they had at hand, but they were fighting a losing battle as only 1 pair of rats can produce 900 offspring in a year."
Over in Sugarland, those rats are not only rabid as well, but also possessed by Asuras: The notorious Asuric rats!
Remember also that some historians are talking about a thirty years' war of the 20th century (1914-1945), which means that not truce or armistice makes any sense, but only total victory. We've already established that the Sugar Cherubs are Nazis and that they only need to be deprogrammed and re-educated, like the Germans were after 1945. But first you've got to knock out their Luftwaffe and blow up their subs, and for that purpose you'll need those 400 AT subscribers. Awaken them like they evoked the nature spirits in The Lord of the Rings; arm them and train them. Once motivated and engaged, all your spies, double agents, cybertrolls etc. will report for duty. Watch out for those Adorable Darlings and similar loose cannons; keep some of them chained up in the AT Basement; that's Mike Helsher's department and specialty, but he's like me and weary after the first nine years, ready to retire, just like many WWI vets retired before WWII. This may be WWIII and may indeed turn out to be a hundred years' war.
The torch is being passed, Brother Ted, from the weary soldiers and field officers to you. the choice is yours; you can drop the torch and say like Jesus, let this cup pass from me, or you can run with it, through the battles of the future. Think Star Trek. The Sugar Cherubs are the Klingons and the Romulans. Watch out for their cloaking device and their deceptive peace offerings. Use your double agents and your trolls. Organize surprising and devastating Tet offensives. Use plenty of fairy tales, myths, music, poetry, anthrobabble, comedy, mantras, and chants. Recruit plenty of gnomes.
