Just want everyone to know that I am no spammer. I have been following your
discussions all along.
My interest is on science and technology. I took a one-year holistic science
course at Schumacher College ,UK. I also spent some time working in a
Biodynamic Garden for four months and visiting Camphill communities. I am
currently enrolled in a Waldorf teacher training course in London.
I have read most of Steiner's lectures on the sciences and his ideas on the
three-fold social order. I find his lecture on World Economy very
interesting. There are a number of people who are promoting his economic
ideas both in the grassroots level and on the academic arena like Nicanor
Perlas in South East Asia and Christopher Budd in the UK.
All the best,
********Glad to hear you're a real person, "plong", and not just a screen name to be used to spam the list. Seemed like the type of name they'd choose.
I have to say that much of what I hear from people like Perlas has little relation to Steiner's "Threefold Social Order" ideas, in my opinion, but rather is people using his name to spread their own, quite different, opinions. For instance, Steiner advocated an economic sphere quite distinct and separate from the political state, which would follow only its own (purely economic) laws --- and so also with the "cultural" sphere (so, for instance, the Waldorf Schools are private schools, not run by governments). But it appears to me that many of the people saying they follow Steiner want MORE control of the economy by the government, not less. ;-> [Not to mention the anti-Western Civilization bias and blindness to the current war of Wahabbi Islam on civilization, which Steiner predicted as the result of the rise of the Sun Demon Sorath 666 in 1998, as we've discussed here.]
I find, in my experience for many years now, that often they are just socialists or communists with a thin "coating of Steiner" on top, and once you draw them out in discussion, out come the Marxist slogans that show what they really think--- which is that the government should take over the economy "for everybody's good". That is definitely NOT the teaching of Rudolf Steiner!
