RE: Theos-World Steiner on black magic from America

On his talk show “Politically Incorrect” on ABC, Bill Maher said on 17
September, “We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000
miles away. That’s cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the
building, say what you want about it, It’s not cowardly”. These comments
drew the rage of many viewers and led to the immediate withdrawal of the
programme’s two main sponsors Federal Express and Sears. A number of
television stations linked to the ABC network, mainly in New York and
Washington, pulled the Bill Maher programme, especially after White
House spokesman Ari Fleisher called his remarks “unpatriotic”. He added,
“It was a terrible thing to say and it’s unfortunate.” He went on, “The
reminder is to all Americans that they need to watch what they say,
watch what they do”. Journalists who heard his statement noted later
that “watch what they say” did not appear in the text of this official
record of the conference.

|Here's a quote from Rudolf Steiner from a newspaper article. I

|German text as I've got it. Seems that Steiner agrees here 
|with HPB that the black magic will run under the flag of "freedom".
|"We will not have to wait a long time, when we will have 
|written the year 2000, then will go out from America not a 
|direct, but an indirect kind of prohibition for all thinking, 
|a law, which will have the purpose to suppress all individual 
|"Es wird nicht lange dauern, wenn man das Jahr 2000 
|geschrieben haben wird, da wird nicht ein direktes, aber eine 
|Art von Verbot für alles Denken von Amerika ausgehen, ein 
|Gesetz, welches den Zweck haben wird, alles individuelle 
|Denken zu unterdrücken."
