Re: [anthroposophy] Re: Politics
- Dear starmann,
In reply to JoAnn's post, you write:
"more political propaganda on the anthroposophy list" and you ask what this
has to do with anthroposophy. Did you really read JoAnn's post and her
reason for posting the article?
By the way: what did you have for breakfast? What is your shoe size? Do you
have a tatoo? Do you drink Coca Cola? Where were you on May 5, 1898? And, oh
yes, does libertarinism have anything to do with anthroposophy? (smile)
Thank you for teaching me to laugh!
