Awful Steiner schools

“I went to a Rudolf Steiner school—they’re awful. They’re still around,
these experimental schools that started in the 1920s, no grades, no real
classes. It was all knitting and beeswax-making—shit like that. Then
after my parents got divorced, I had to go right into public school in
the fourth grade. The Steiner school had never really taught me how to
read, so it was a rude awakening. I was playing catch-up the whole time.” (Justin Theroux)

Shock therapy for Waldorf kids

“If you walk past a group of lethargic pupils, you can hit with a bunch of keys on the table, allowing you to produce a shock.

We must combat this irregular interconnectedness of the etheric body with the physical body by acting on the unconscious.

You will always have to find another way to shock them and evoke what they do not like to do. “ (Rudolf Steiner)

The expectant mother and the hanged man

“Of course, when a pregnant woman, say, takes a walk in the woods and finds someone that hanged himself in a tree and is already dead – if he is still twitching its even worse – she will be terribly startled.

She will probably give birth to a child that is pale, has a pointed chin, has meager extremities and is hardly able to move.” (Rudolf Steiner)

Mercury’s powers bubbling in the ethiopian gland system

“Everything that awards those special features to the ethiopian race, orginates in Mercury´s powers boiling and bubbling in the gland system of those people.

That results from them giving off, what makes the similar, common human shape become the special one of the ethiopian race, with the black colored skin, wooly hair and so on.” (Rudolf Steiner)
