        *******Well, first let me say that the discussion of politics seldom will lead to agreement between people, or even agreement that the other person is entitled to their opinion in these days of "political correctness" where so many people believe there's only one right way to think about things. Then I'll make two further observations: first, it seems sometimes that virtually every New Ager (including anthroposophists) is an extreme left-winger, and doesn't even seem to realize or admit that; and, second, that many people who have just dabbled a little bit in Anthroposophy seem to confuse their own political opinions with knowledge actually derived from the spiritual world. I won't confuse my opinion with direct knowledge from the spiritual world: these will be just my opinions.

           First, I think that it's not a good thing that the English-speaking people, such as the U.S., England and Australia, have become the dominant powers in the world, nor do I think that Anglo-American creation, the United Nations, is a good thing. I fear it will lead to a world government such as that seen by the mystic Soloviev in his vision of the Antichrist's coming in the 21st century (and if people have never read that, perhaps I can scan it in and put it here).  So I can sympathize with some of the anti-U.S. attitudes people have.

           But not much. It may be that each world emergency, like the invasion of Kuwait, the genocide in Yugoslavia, and now the mass murders carried out by the fundamentalist Islamicists in the U.S. and Bali, is just leading us to a more powerful world government currently under the control primarily of the English-speaking peoples-- -- -- I think that's unfortunate, but no excuse for not taking action. We had to act in Serbia, and we have to act where conscience dictates.

              In this case I think action is absolutely required. If anyone watched Colin Powell's presentation to the U.N. he should have been convinced that this powerful madman in Babylon has been doing everything possible to develop biological and chemical weapons in secret-- -- -- for instance, putting the laboratories on railroad cars that can be moved everywhere around the country -- -- -- in order to continue his dream of dominating the Middle East militarily. Powell's presentation of the evidence even convinced anti-Bush columnist Marianne Means (see her Feb. 8th column "The Madman Must Be Stopped"), and liberal columnist Thomas Friedman characterized pretty well the foolishness of the position of the French ("Vote France off the Island", New York Times Feb. 11th), whose imitation of an ostrich (or perhaps Neville Chamberlain) is embarrassing to anyone at all aware of what's really happening.

           As to the connection between Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, the latter has been financing al-Qaida in North Iraq for years, to keep the Kurds under control, a group known as Ansar al Islam, and that's where many al-Qaida went after the fall of Afghanistan. Hussein has been financing their terrorism, right along with bin Laden and wealthy Saudis. The goal of these fundamentalist nuts, to set off a nuclear weapon in either New York or Tel Aviv, is only realizable with the help of a modern industrial state. His is one they've been using.

           This is the primary danger we face in our time, now that the Soviet Union is no longer a threat, the danger of rogue nations and international terrorism motivated by ethno-nationalism (in this case, using a dark ages religion as a cover). It will take a concerted campaign by the entire civilized world to combat it over many years-- -- -- which is what it looked like we would have immediately after Sept. 11th 2001; but when the need to take actual action came closer, that alleged agreement among the civilized nations turned out to be more apparent than real. That doesn't really matter in this particular case: the United States needs no help to handle Iraq (in fact even the military forces of France and England are so far behind us that they just get in the way, as we're about to demonstrate), anymore than Israel needed anybody else's help to take out Hussein's nuclear reactor 20 years ago. What is needed, however, is for the so-called statesman of the European nations to start recognizing certain realities and to cease squabbling out of jealousy of the U.S. or playing to their own leftist voters.

            I think the world is faced with a crisis that has to be addressed, Not just this current madman, but what Steiner referred to as the surfacing of the Sun Demon Sorath ('666') about 1998, which he connected with Mohammedeanism. The characteristic of this demonic movement is to be against everything modern and Western, against individual freedom and consciousness, and, just as was the case with the very similar movement of Marxism, people in the West seem to have lost all sense of the value of the own culture that needs to be defended against it. I think people need to rediscover that culture and its spiritual basis of individualism, in order to see why these people planting bombs and flying planes into buildings cannot be justified in any way, but rather are EVIL.

           As Albert Camus said, "The hottest pits of Hell are reserved for those who, in a time of moral crisis, maintain their neutrality."

          I wonder if they still read him in France and Germany?

          Dear Friends,
           
          Excellent question and excellent reply! Thank you, Sarah, and thank you, Dr. Starman for your always clear thoughts. I am one Anthroposophist who is not a left winger and I'm not sure what that implies in Anthroposophical thought, but perhaps that doesn't matter in contrast to the Evil currently facing the world from Islamic radicalism. I was sickened by the cowardly behavior and denial shown by the world's representatives, with 4 rare exceptions, in the UN's Council the other day in the face of truth - truth so earnestly visible coming from Colin Powell. How delighted the Evil Beings working through human beings were! Soloviev indeed saw and realized what was and is still invisible to the vast majority of mankind, and as a very young teenager, Albert Camus' writing awakened within me an everlasting insight into many human reactions elicited by the same behavior patterns the vast majority of the world is today hopelessly attempting to avoid with their heads in the sand. How very clearly I can still hear my mother's words of truth from so long ago, speaking of the inception of the UN as a failure, so clearly shown in Friday's shameful parody of "world leadership." For anyone to think I fail to understand the horrors of war, I can only say I spent three years during the Vietnam fiasco working in various M.A.S.H. facilities. Unless mankind destroys this current EVIL as well as its many tentacles, the civilized world is totally lost as is mankind himself.
           
          Blessings to All,

              *******Well, that's actually from Rudolf Steiner. when he talked about the different "folk souls" that ruled different nations, he said that it would be very harmful if the English-speaking peoples became completely dominant in the world, culturally speaking. This is why for many years the anthroposophical society resisted doing anything in English at the world headquarters. Speaking in a language has a subconscious influence on how you think, and English has a sort of built-in bias to look at thinking as merely making a copy of something external to you, unlike German for instance. Therefore it encourages materialism.

                 I'd also love to hear what other people think, especially trying to look at our current world situation from out of their anthroposophical study.

              laboratories on railroad cars that can be moved everywhere around the
              country
              -- -- -- in order to continue his dream of dominating the Middle East
              militarily. Powell's presentation of the evidence even convinced anti-Bush
              columnist Marianne Means (see her Feb. 8th column "The Madman Must Be
              Stopped"), and liberal columnist Thomas Friedman characterized pretty well
              the foolishness of the position of the French ("Vote France off the Island",
              New York Times Feb. 11th), whose imitation of an ostrich (or perhaps Neville
              Chamberlain) is embarrassing to anyone at all aware of what's really
              happening.

                As to the connection between Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, the
              latter has been financing al-Qaida in North Iraq for years, to keep the
              Kurds
              under control, a group known as Ansar al Islam, and that's where many
              al-Qaida went after the fall of Afghanistan. Hussein has been financing
              their
              terrorism, right along with bin Laden and wealthy Saudis. The goal of these
              fundamentalist nuts, to set off a nuclear weapon in either New York or Tel
              Aviv, is only realizable with the help of a modern industrial state. His is
              one they've been using.

                This is the primary danger we face in our time, now that the Soviet Union
              is no longer a threat, the danger of rogue nations and international
              terrorism motivated by ethno-nationalism (in this case, using a dark ages
              religion as a cover). It will take a concerted campaign by the entire
              civilized world to combat it over many years-- -- -- which is what it looked
              like we would have immediately after Sept. 11th 2001; but when the need to
              take actual action came closer, that alleged agreement among the civilized
              nations turned out to be more apparent than real. That doesn't really matter
              in this particular case: the United States needs no help to handle Iraq (in
              fact even the military forces of France and England are so far behind us
              that
              they just get in the way, as we're about to demonstrate), anymore than
              Israel
              needed anybody else's help to take out Hussein's nuclear reactor 20 years
              ago. What is needed, however, is for the so-called statesman of the European
              nations to start recognizing certain realities and to cease squabbling out
              of
              jealousy of the U.S. or playing to their own leftist voters.

                I think the world is faced with a crisis that has to be addressed, Not
              just this current madman, but what Steiner referred to as the surfacing of
              the Sun Demon Sorath ('666') about 1998, which he connected with
              Mohammedeanism. The characteristic of this demonic movement is to be against
              everything modern and Western, against individual freedom and consciousness,
              and, just as was the case with the very similar movement of Marxism, people
              in the West seem to have lost all sense of the value of the own culture that
              needs to be defended against it. I think people need to rediscover that
              culture and its spiritual basis of individualism, in order to see why these
              people planting bombs and flying planes into buildings cannot be justified
              in
              any way, but rather are EVIL.

                As Albert Camus said, "The hottest pits of Hell are reserved for those
              who, in a time of moral crisis, maintain their neutrality."

              I wonder if they still read him in France and Germany?

                All other cowards sit and whine in Washington asking Bush to bomb the
                bastard so they can install themselves as a political elite....
                yesterday they hoped for privileges lickin Saddams ass... now they
                lick Bush's and promise to keep out of the way for american
                "interests" if just they can get their piece of the cake .....

                So the ones having mercy with the suffering of the people under the
                tyrant Saddam and the sincerity to put their ass on the line is God
                Damn it the pinko commie iraqi's (well and some moderate islamists) -
                and they are the ones who also oppose islamo-fascist politics..... in
                a choice between real options I think in a post-cold war world they
                aren't the worst bunch to wish the best of luck and may their bullets
                find their way to the heart of the beast --

                The whole idea in threefolding is that politics - and here also
                military, defense - is dealing primarily with human to human relations
                .... what is equal between individuals - as we often have noticed the
                angels leave the room when we discuss politics.. and that is just
                because politics is no spiritual matter - well it is in the world
                today as we haven't clear seperations in the appropriate spheres - and
                some mix religion, cultural idendity aso with politics -
                so we have the phenomen "political islam" which most certainly isn't
                the same as the faith islam - and we have "political christianity",
                which in no way represent the christ-impulse ....

                So what we see is expectations from the right that the political
                leadership shall fix spiritual/cultural matters
                and from the liberal left that it should fix economical matters ....

                But to deal with the rights question in a sincere way with respect for
                each individual human beings equal rigth to freedom, life and
                prosperity - is mostly done as fine proclamations..... when the
                reality is there, some individuals rigths count more than others and
                if there's an extra buck to win on being an asshole it's done.
