One of my concerns is the election issue, electoral reform. I believe that returning to ‘first past the post’ as a way of deciding government disenfranchises many people especially from education. The proliferation of waldorf/steiner schools is just one example of the issue. People are looking to the spiritual sciences to provide them with answers to their concerns. There are of course bonafide educational issues that need our support and more of the treasury vote to enable really good programmes like this.
Money wasted by the government funding crazy stuff like this is exactly that. A waste of tax payer’s dollars.
Quote of the Day
“In the course of our whole evolution we have seven Planetary conditions: Saturn, Sun, Moon, Earth, Jupiter, Venus, Vulcan … [W]e stand exactly in the middle of our Earthly evolution. This is frequently felt to be something extraordinarily important for man. We have behind us three Planets … and the same number still lie before us. But if we were standing on the Old Moon, we should see yet another Planetary condition before Saturn; if we were standing on future Jupiter we should no longer see Saturn, but in its place a Planet beyond Vulcan.” — Rudolf Steiner, FOUNDATIONS OF ESOTERICISM (Rudolf Steiner Press, 1982), lecture 26, GA 93a.
