It means that English speakers are destined to spread democracy,
freedom, moral leadership, the ballot box, Jesus rallies, the art of
rhetoric and propaganda and all those other goodies including the
Consciousness Soul, and for this to be possible, everyone has to
understand the English language, the language of the peoples with
golden tongues. And when some people around the globe get more
Consciousness Soul than others this way, their handling of English
will differ accordingly, and that's how you get "the English languages".
The best way to start is to learn from Bush. He speaks primitive
Basic English suitable for the Bush people, the peoples of the
bushes, the backwoods stragglers, referred to by Steiner as
"Hottentots". This Hottentot English, Bush English, Basic Baby
English, consisting of simple words of few syllables intermingled
with unintelligible growls, is very easy to learn. A little drilling
is required, though; you must learn to say "trrrrr-issssts". And this
Life of Rights is also very easy to understand; everything starts
with the right to bear arms, and to fire them. It's also the right to
choose how to die - by lethal injection, firing squad, electric
chair, or military interrogation. And those who don't appreciate
these freedoms, are "evildoers" - one of the first words to be
learned in Bush English.
