racist people in general populate the world. They join
many organizations and many times keep their personal
twisted anti Christic way of being in the closet. That
is until they find another like themselves entering
into to their sacred space. I think this is what we
have going on here at AT in a way.
We have Mr. Mason who makes a showing. Well, Joel
brought him here and with Joel came a story by Ms.
Gordienko and others which was well funded and founded
by a man who works to show that the Holocaust was not
as bad as it seems. From this we have Mr. Mason bring
Mr. Bondarev which then brings Stephen Hale fully out
of the closet. Which then also brings Bradford Riley
out of the closet in protection of Mr. Hale to such an
extent it can be wondered what are Bradford
inclinations. Although they do seem to be a bit
separate from the antisemites and have more to do with
putting the screws to anything he considers is looked
at as an authority. I guess he fails to remember that
it was the new initiate of the 20th century that set
it up in the first place for good or bad, just as it
was he who took on the karma of the Society for good
So, we now have some racist, because of religious
thinking, people showing their faces and thinking that
it has nothing to do with race but it obviously does
when we use terms like 'greedy jews' 'they get what
they deserve' and the 'holocaust wasn't that bad'. Or
even Jews dressing as Arabs to bomb the country. And
the people saying these things can't see where it
crosses the boundaries into racism. And then they use
Rudolf Steiner to propel their own feelings, and it is
feelings, into the world where he gets caught in this
ugliness of twisted thinking that shows no objectivety
in any form. It's just twisted within.
But the interesting thing is what can be done about
it. And I think really nothing in some ways. I mean
this is a world problem not an Anthroposophy problem.
It really is. It is everywhere. There is no teaching
of this type of thing in Anthroposophy just as there
is no teaching of this in Christianity yet it is
perceived to be there by fundamentalist Christians.
Hale and others are fundamental Christians who have
found Anthroposophy and make it meet their ways of
thinking. Anyone can do that. Just as Dugan and
company have made it meet their thinking of certain
thing which they then brand as racism and nazism.
Staudenamier is not even thinking he's just an
intellectual automatum that pulls ideas together and
makes them fit into his anti Christian way of
thinking. Again, Anthroposophy is not what he is
really targeting its that people have a spiritual
outlook and he thinks there is nothing beyond this
world after death. So he uses Anthroposophy to prove
it. If he can prove Anthroposophy is racist he can do
the same thing but not pin it on Rudolf Steiner, next
time he shall pin it on Christ Jesus. That's his gig.
Bradford's mouth has become a cannon. And that does
not bode well for him nor for Anthroposophy. But truly
he has always been that way. He's a cannon calling
other people out of name according to his own wants
and desires. He fails to see the sentient dysfunction
behaviour that is hurting not only himself but also
others who care deeply about moving the Movement
forward. And we know he cares by how much he rails
about cotton anthros and so forth. Problem is he is
digging a hole for others to enter into versus
climbing out of. And he doesn't care because he is who
he is damn it and aint' nobody going to reason with
that. It's the Popey 'I am what I ams' syndrom going
on that is used the world over by people who make
excuses for the things they do when they are unwilling
The Vorstand has a responsibility to not allow an
antisemite to speak on behalf of Anthroposophy. It is
there responsibility and I am sure they took it
gravely. I am sure that was a very hard decision to
make. They knew that the opponents of Anthroposophy
would have a field day and then they also knew that
those who found themselves in line with that type of
thinking would give the opponents what they needed to
prove Anthroposophy was racist. But as their teacher
Rudolf Steiner 'erred' in stopping to help the
security guard who was felled at the doorstep of the
Goetheanum and he put his task to helping him first
before taking care of the fire, so too did the
Vorstand put itself in the way of taking care of
something that warranted their immediate attention and
weighed the consequences of moral duty. It was their
moral duty to not allow an anti semite, no matter how
versed in anthroposophy, no matter what secrets of the
mystery may be known to him, to ask him to leave. It
is the responsibility of those that are in the
position of putting Anthroposophy first and foremost
in their lives, to take the bullet. And they did.
It is the responsibility of those that know how to
make a stand to do so when countering advesarial
powers working in other people. This poison that they
are sending out boomerangs right back to them. And so
it is also the Christic way to continue to find ways
of keeping our hearts open to them but also making
sure that we are clear in what crosses the boundaries
of common decency.
When one is able to find the Christ in the etheric one
realizes that all are welcome at the table. But not
all can get there to sit down and join him in the
Manas that is being offered. That is the point about
the road being long but narrowed. Things such as
religious hate are not allowed to enter. Divisions of
that sort are not allowed to enter. So the road is
long to get to the place where divisions do not play a
part of the thinking. And that is the work of
spiritual science and the Michaelic School: to find
that we are all brothers and sisters irregardless of
race or religion or what bad thing one has done. One
cannot serve Michael and Mamon at the same time.
