As some of you may know I made a thread yesterday entitled: Brothers in the Shadows:
Evidence that Secret Societies Manipulate World Affairs
. The main protagonist of that thread was Rudolf Steiner, Austrian philosopher, social
reformer and esotericist.
Although it is not essential for you to do so in order to understand this thread, it might be worth reading the above thread first so that you have a
more rounded apprehension of the man himself. It also serves to show just how visionary Steiner was and how well connected he seemed to have been with
the secret societies he so often mentions.
Anyway, as a result of that thread I delved further into the lectures and writings of Steiner looking for more revelations and it wasn't long before
I found something.
I first saw it mentioned in the book 'The Crisis of Civilization
written by the Russian Anthroposophist Gennady Bondarev. Bondarev first states:
Speaking of the above-mentioned map Rudolf Steiner remarks: Nothing special has been said about the Scandinavian peoples; it seems as though
they will probably be granted a really long period of clemency (Jan. 14, 1917, GA 174). This is the solution to the riddle of the relatively happy
liberalism existing in the Northern European countries.
This first statement struck me as prophetic, for it is true that the Scandinavian regions are relative safe havens in the modern world and have been
for decades. Countries like Norway, Iceland, Denmark and Finland often find themselves topping the list of the Global Peace Index.
But it is what came next that made me go
But of the U.S.A. Rudolf Steiner says that free thinking will have come to an end in the year 2000. Of this there can be no doubt. It will then
become apparent that not only the Russians, with their inclination to slavery, and the eternal militarists (the Germans), are capable of creating
Imperiums of evil, but the freedom-loving Anglo-Saxons have this capacity too.
Here we have a reference to Steiner predicting that in the year 2000 America will put an end to free thinking and become a militaristic nation with
the inhabitants becoming mere slaves. This was said in 1916!
For those still wondering what on Earth I am referring to...USA Patriot Act
Bondarev gave no specific reference for this quote and so I couldn't be fully sure it was legitimate. I did some further snooping and found
"Soon after the year 2000 has been written, a law will go forth from America whose purpose will be to suppress all individual thinking. This
will not be the wording of the law, but it will be the intent" [GV,p98].
Rudolf Steiner spoke these words in 1916, in Berlin, during WWI, in a lecture on the secret societies. A precursor of David Icke, Rudolf Steiner began
warning the world about these secret societies during WWI.
Still, it wasn't enough.
After an hour or so of crawling through the Rudolf Steiner archives I finally managed to find the quote from the horses mouth...
We might say that the present time is doing very well compared with that which will come in the future when the Western development blossoms
more and more. Very shortly, when one will have written the year 2000, there will come from America not a direct prohibition, but a kind of
prohibition against all thinking, a sort of law which will have the name of suppressing all individual thinking. The other hand there is the
beginning achieved in this direction of suppressing all individual thinking into pure materialistic thinking where one does not need to work upon the
soul on the basis of external experiments, in a the human being is handled as if he were a machine.
- Things in Past and Present in the Spirit of Man (Lecture IV) April 4, 1916
You can see it for yourself here
Here we have a man, speaking in 1916
, explicitly stating how in the year 2000 (or just after) America will introduce a law that suppresses free
will and individual thinking. It even hints at how the "prohibition" is not a direct
prohibition, but a prohibition under the guise of
something else, ie - protecting citizens from terrorism.
86 years later, in 2001, the USA PATRIOT Act is passed as a direct response to the terrorist attacks of September 11th.
Later he goes on to say:
Now, in the Future you will not get a law passed which says you must not think. No. What will happen is that things will be done the effect
of which will be to exclude all individual thinking. This is the other pole to which we are proceeding. This is connected with the development of
Could this even be referencing the September 11th attacks? Instantly a quote comes to mind: "Further, the process of transformation, even if it
brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor."
Anyways, it's all pure speculation.
I happen to think that the dates are an unbelievable coincidence, although coincidence might not be the right word. Maybe, "coincidence" instead?
Usually I don't put much stock into these sorts of things. But having read some of Steiner's works over the last few days I am inclined to, in this
case, think again.
Over to you fine people...
