      Hi Linda,
      Silly is hardly the word; if I might add a little here.

      Steiner took charge of the education of, and taught an 'intellectually
      disabled child' for many years, from which he developed his pedagogy for
      disabled people. His insight into the human being enabled the curative
      movement which has cared for in a loving and insightful way, the disabled,
      long before it became fashion to do so.

      By the way, the intellectually disabled child went on to be educated, became
      a medical doctor and was sadly killed in the trenches during WW1.

      Pete, you're a damned fool; to think you could even be worthy to undo the
      shoe laces of a Rudolf Steiner; the greatest educator of the human race in
      the 20th Century.
