Many people don't realize how much Rudolph Steiner's Waldorf Education affects our public schools.

The Waldorf School movement, begun in Stuttgart, Germany in 1919, is a fascinating forerunner of today's "whole brain" education. It is currently the second largest independent school system in the world, with about 300 schools in 21 countries, about 90 of which are in North America. The movement was founded by the Austrian philosopher and mystic, Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), whose work touched virtually every area of human inquiry and activity


Wikipedia: Waldorf education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waldorf_education)

The first Waldorf school was founded in 1919; there are now more than 1000[11][12] independent Waldorf schools and 1400 independent Waldorf kindergartens[13] located in approximately sixty countries throughout the world, making up one of the world's largest independent educational systems, as well as Waldorf-based government-funded schools and charter schools, Waldorf homeschooling environments,[2] and Waldorf schools for special education. Waldorf methods have also been adopted by significant numbers of teachers within traditional state and private schools.[14][15]


So now, knowing the significant influence of this system, which is a study in itself, let's look into Rudolf Steiner a bit.

Lecture: Lecture: Salt, Mercury, Sulphur (http://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/SaMeSu_index.html)
(here, we establish Steiners influences)

As I propose to follow up the theme of our lecture yesterday, [ Published in Anthroposophy, Christmas, 1930.] I would remind you of the three figures whose outstanding importance has lasted from the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries right on into our own times, namely, Giordano Bruno, Lord Bacon of Verulam and Jacob Boehme


So then, Steiner goes into explaining the philosophy of Salt, Mercury and Sulphur.

What did these expressions — salt, mercury, sulphur — still mean in the Folk-Wisdom from which Jacob Boehme derived his ideas?
...


But here is where one should be concerned.
Steiner speaks with great admiration of Giordano Bruno.

It is easy to get an impression of the reputation which Bruno had created by the year 1582 in the minds of the clerical authorities of southern Europe. He had written of an infinite universe which had left no room for that greater infinite conception which is called God. He could not conceive that God and nature could be separate and distinct entities as taught by Genesis, as taught by the Church and as even taught by Aristotle. He preached a philosophy which made the mysteries of the virginity of Mary, of the crucifixion and the mass, meaningless.


So basically, Bruno was not convinced that there is a higher power, and that man is the higher power. Loosely interpreted, we have no Maker, or God doesn't exist as the bible suggests.

But, Bruno goes further to suggest that the "ass" is everywhere.


His other works were The Infinity, the Universe and Its Worlds, The Transport of Intrepid Souls, and Cabala of the Steed like unto Pegasus with the Addition of the Ass of Cyllene, an ironical discussion of the pretensions of superstition. This "ass," says Bruno, is to be found everywhere, not only in the church but in courts of law and even in colleges.


Who is this "ass"?

Baphomet.

Further consideration leads me to think that perhaps Paulina is
a Waldorf victim, or a victim of anthroposophy, depending on
whether she was raised in anthroposophy or became enmeshed in
the anthropop culture as a result of training in Waldorf at an
early age.
...
OTO:
In the beginning of the 20th century, a manufacturer from
Vienna Dr. Karl
Kellner, and a German theosophist Dr. Franz Hertmann, founded a
secret occult
lodge which they named "Ordo Templi Orientis" (O.T.O.). Soon
after they were
joined by Theodore Reuss (1855-1923) who had connections with
many lodges. It
was he who led Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy,
into such a group.
Reuss, whose lodge-name was "Brother Merlin", contacted
Aleister Crowley
in 1912, and he became a member of this additional lodge
receiving the name
"Brother Baphomet". Baphomet, the symbol of the satanic goat,
usually portrayed
as a half-human, half-goat figure, of a goat head.


But, Levi, well known to Freemasonry, describes Baphomet a bit differently.

This card is attributed to the letter Ayin, which means an Eye, and it refers to Capricornus in the Zodiac. In the Dark Ages of Christianity, it was completely misunderstood. Eliphaz Levi studied it very deeply because of its connection with ceremonial magic, his favourite subject; and he re-drew it, identifying it with Baphomet, the ass-headed idol of the Knights of the Temple.

Then we come to celebrating the Scarlet Woman depicted in Revelation.
# Revelation 17:3
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Revelation 17:2-4 (in Context) Revelation 17 (Whole Chapter)


Scarlet Woman Lodge—founded in 1993 and located in the Valley of Austin Texas—is a local body of Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) under charter from U.S. Grand Lodge. We are a fraternal, initiatory organization—similar to Freemasonry and the ancient mystery schools—that has accepted the Law of Thelema as revealed in The Book of the Law.

So, you see. Evil is infiltrated everywhere, and we are at a spiritual crossroads.
