Re: The remains of human giants.
Bradford: « ...Weimar and Leo Strauss, the supposed Neocon Platonist has us now, globally headed for a Weimar economic meltdown where once more Goethe's and Steiner's Weimar, and Strauss's Weimar became the voice of the Ahrimanic mockery of the Platonist stream while giving birth to the Sorathian Willed Neocons who have been very receptive to the power of making a new world out of the shattered remains of the Logos. »
It does look like it all boils down to Ahrimanic mockery, in my view. Steiner's spiritual science would the anthidote against inevitable 'Ahrimanic mockery'; if it were only recognized how omni important it is to safeguard the esoteric from the exoteric, and vice versa. This ability is currently so loosely recognized, and as a result, so over and over again, humanity gets 'dupped' by Ahriman's natural ability to pick up a whole lot of political idealism, along with the collectve 'mass' of human thought, instinct and will forces, and plop them it all straight in his pocket.
While current day Straussian conservatives and others secure/ ensure justice over their common 'philosophical' choice of theory with 'it's' free application to political vision and action - possibly remaining the intelligible doctrine which draws all differing personal experiences under one common 'political' umbrella - we, as discerning Anthros and/or Michael students have only to take a look back over what occured in Europe, in early to mid 20 th century, to study what results when philosophical and religious perceptions become too outwardly and vigorously applied to political and military ideals- Ahrimanic forces easily slip into the mix, resulting in a mockery of any Logos intelligence and/or intent that might have manage to thread itself through it all.
The end results IS one great, 'clear' course for more Ahrimanic debauchery of millions of human destinies to come..
Take a look.

Colony Collapse ---- We are being subjected to a 100 year law, or 99 year law of three 33's including the Great Depression of 1933 and as well that horrific event of Feb 27, 1933. We are in the midst of an Occult Law upheaval that was indicated as well in Colony collapse studies we did on this list. The entire global economy is in Colony collapse and becoming Ahrimanically reformed due to a vast occult law of three X's 3. This law was noted as penetrating right down to the Sun Community of the way we handled Bees, all the way to the law of Education and results of educating humanity in a false, Ahrimanic and distorted manner would result in the corrupt monsters and whores of wall street becoming the children of Alan Greenspan, the children of Atlas Shrugged, the greedy, avarice ridden failure of humanity to check their impulses for the greater good as was thought should happen with freedom, however the infected and false educational system have created not only a Colony Collapse of the Bees, a Sun Beeings, but the Collapse of global Economy all on a 100 year occult law or 99 year law that Steiner talked of.
The Fed created a falsifed Occult model, without Initiation Science or the Christ Event, but based on an Ahrimanic school of training and holding captive various etheric Lodge models of souls, capturing their etheric models and training Ahrimanized cosmic Initiation to insert themselves into Archangelic activities, and enter everywhere globally, with IMF, International Monetary Fund and Federal Reserve and Wall Street, all gaining and maintaining Ahrimanic Initiation centers into the Economic System. And now the 99 year law has caught up to us, but we didn't instantly recognize the signs of Colony collapse and the indicators that Steiner drew.
Try Again Anthros; Try Again;
"Despite its name, the Federal Reserve System is not owned by the
federal government. It is actually a private company of bankers with 12
branches or central banks that expand and contract our money supply as
they have doing for nearly 100 years.
And, even though the Fed is not part of the US government, the Fed's
Board of seven governors is appointed by the president and confirmed by
the Senate for 14-year terms."
"Steiner...explained that the modern method of breeding queens (using
larvae of worker bees, a practice that had already been in use for about
fifteen years) would have long-term detrimental effects, so grave that:
"A century later all breeding of bees will cease if only artificially
produced bees are used...."
Steiner in another lecture made this grave prophecy:
"Let the kind of teaching that prevails in our universities continue for
another three decades, let social questions be treated as they are now
for thirty years more, and you will have a devastated Europe." He said
this in December, 1919; of course the prophecy was fulfilled in less
than thirty years."
Colony Collapse or was Steiner just one gloomy guy? Well to the
trivial, newbie and basic inattentive shrunken intellectual soul,
Steiner just must appear gloomy and making those statements to get some
sort of negative attention. NOT! O seriously not.
