A few words of introduction are in order. First my two main mentors were both adherents of Steiner.
One was a psychologist from an Afrikaner military-farming family, who guided me through Steiner’s work, often sentence-by-sentence. Had he not done so I could never have studied Steiner as I did, and I only ever really studied one series of lectures Steiner gave, “Knowledge of Higher Worlds and its Attainment”.
Then, following a major motorcycle crash and a Near Death Experience he directed me to an old associate of his. The head of the Rudolf Steiner study group-church in London, Rachel Shepherd, was to echo his assessment of my ‘accident’. Moreover, what she said nearly 25 year-ago turned out to be insightful and prophetic.
I had only recently got out of hospital after being diagnosed with “severe and extensive brain damage” when I saw her. Yet I still recall Rachel saying: “you are going to get involved in something political”.
At the time it seemed improbable but nearly 25-years later I run a website with obvious political content. Of wider significance, in our conversation Rachel also implied that “over-population” was NOT going to be a problem.
Although she didn’t say precisely why, she inferred that over-population was nothing to worry about. Indeed, she seemed so confident and assured that I’m tempted to suspect that she knew more than she let on.
Did she have foreknowledge of the elite’s plans for depopulation? I honestly don’t know but in retrospect her certainty stands out.
None of this might have mattered had Rachel not passed away a few years later. Because she then reappeared before the man who took over her duties in London and before me while I was preparing a periodical that became the forerunner of this website. Her manifestation was not physical but I had the clear impression that she was bathed in light. Like the old paintings of angels or divine apparitions, it was as if to confirm what she had predicted a few years before.
Finally, a few words about Steiner’s prediction of a “good and evil race” are necessary. Steiner’s teaching is subtle and multifaceted and readers should not assume that he’s saying Negroid equals Bad and Caucasian means Good.
Steiner is neither so obvious nor so predictable.
For example while forerunners of this new “race” may be found in the ranks of Black Lives Matter, I suspect that more may be found among the predominately White Antifa.
Likewise it’s worth recalling the Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza, who died of a heart attack recently. and Tanzania’s President John Magufuli, who also recently succumbed to an alleged “heart failure”. Was it a coincidence that both had recently denounced the Covid “pandemic” as a fraud?
Unlike their western European counterparts, both men spoke out honestly about Covid-19 and both paid the ultimate price.
So we shouldn’t make blanket assumptions about race. Steiner is talking about the emergence of something new here and, although the current racial equation may be a factor, I suspect we may get greater insight by looking beyond physical characteristics. Ed.
