bringing forward Waldorf/Steiner issues

anthroposophy’s belief in it’s own spritual superiority

“Let’s consider ethnicity, for instance. The Waldorf system is built on the idea that north/central Europe is the home of the highest, most evolved humans — sometimes called Aryans. The culture of these white people — much of which is reflected in their ancient myths (Norse myths) — is the highest on Earth. Other, darker peoples are less evolved.+

“One can only understand history and all of social life, including today’s social life, if one pays attention to people’s racial characteristics. And one can only understand all that is spiritual in the correct sense if one first examines how this spiritual element operates within people precisely through the color of their skin.” — Rudolf Steiner, VOM LEBEN DES MENSCHEN UND DER ERDE {On the Life of Human Beings and of the Earth} (Verlag Der Rudolf Steiner-Nachlassverwaltung, 1961), p. 52.

“On one side we find the black race, which is earthly at most. If it moves to the West, it becomes extinct. We also have the yellow race, which is in the middle between earth and the cosmos. If it moves to the East, it becomes brown, attaches itself too much to the cosmos, and becomes extinct. The white race is the future, the race that is creating spirit.” [Ibid., p. 62.] (Among other things, Steiner is saying that each race should stay “where it belongs.”)

“[T]he Europeans have ascended to a higher level of culture, while [others] have remained behind and become decadent. One must always pay attention to this evolutionary process. It can be described as follows. In the course of millennia our planet transforms itself, and this transformation also demands a development of humankind. Those side branches that no longer fit in to current conditions become decadent. Thus we have an upright evolutionary trunk as well as side branches which decay.” — Rudolf Steiner, MENSCHHEITSENTWICKELUNG UND CHRISTUS-ERKENNTNIS, pp. 243-44.

Being of colour (Maori) and marrying into an anthroposophical family, I now realise, was never going to work. It’s just too difficult to get passed the racism inherent in these people. The most difficult thing to deal with is that the children are being raised in such a toxic environment that it’s bound to have serious consequences (in fact it already has). The family court has forced the children into a eurocentric  educational system that looks upon people of colour as spiritually inferior. A warning for those unaware of the attitudes prevalent in such an institution. Not only the steiner/waldorf system but also their occult church system anthroposophy. That such a thing is being taught/exists in Aotearoa NZ is shocking.
