- Oct 31, 2004Dear Br. Ron,
Don't you just wish those who quote Steiner so often knew a bit more about the times
in which he lived? They just have to be clueless. One might argue in favor of socialism back in 1913 monarchist Austria ( and other European countries) where the masses worked 12-15 hours 6 days a week, and then went home to a stale bread dinner before collapsing into bed in shared tenement housing without heat. Many could not even afford tenement housing, three families to two rooms, and slept outside the vents hugh laundries at night. The Adler's of the world had a reason to argue the proletariat woes back then, but in 21st Century America?
Give me a break.
The socialist minded in the good 'ol U.S. of A. have much in common with the condition Emil Bock describes in THE THREE YEARS as the Judas condition, the restless soul that occupies oneself focusing on what is wrong in the world in order to avoid doing the personal transformational work that brings the world forward.
Socialism does not bring the world forward and I'll let the record on Marxism, of any variety, speak for itself.
I disagree with Dr. Starman for a change. I do not think that things will get back to normal after Tuesday, no matter what the outcome of the election. I see this country in very deep trouble, and perhaps on it's way to its own 'fin-de-siecle'.
Everything changed on 9-11.
I don't get it that people don't get it. :-(
