I don't see your point. Steiner didn't mention much about his
Theosophical background that is true. I see that he wanted to go by his own
way. And what is wrong with that? If Antroposofists want to follow
Steiner and his teachings instead of Blavatsky - it is not a bad thing as
I see it. The point in co-operation is not to believe in same things,
Teachers and such - but to understand, respect and maybe work together.
And if RS said some unpleasant things, I don't know. But what we really
are dealing with here, is a group of individuals, and not every Antroposofist
say bad things about Blavatsky and so on...
I want to say, that we can't put a blame on every Antroposofist because of
what RS said or did. Every person is responsible of his own deeds and words.
I also think that the goal is not to make every, would be spiritual
aspirant, identical but just the opposite.
