(Preliminary electronic translation)

The General Assembly 2024 of the General Anthroposophical Society may express and resolve the following:

  • The behaviour of the leadership of the General Anthroposophical Society and the School of Spiritual Science during the coronavirus period needs to be investigated. The statements and descriptions in the explanatory statement – which may need to be expanded – should serve as a guide for this reappraisal. The extent to which these correspond to the facts and the actual events and behaviour of those responsible must be reviewed.
  • To this end, a review commission is to be formed, whose equal number of executive and non-executive members is to be determined by the first signatories of this motion and the Executive Board of the AAG. The work of this commission requires professional moderation..
  • The working method is determined by the group itself with the significant involvement of the moderator. In stalemate situations, the moderator can decide on the procedure. Care must be taken to ensure that the membership is informed in an appropriate form via the Society’s publication organs about progress – including aspects on which no consensus can be reached. After 12 months at the latest, a detailed and open report on the progress and the topics dealt with must be submitted.
  • The Society will provide the necessary resources for communication – online and in print. If necessary, costs and reimbursement of expenses (e.g. for moderation) are also to be borne, insofar as these are necessary and appropriate for the work of the Commission. To inform the entire membership, this motion and the result of the vote of the General Assembly will be published in full within three months in the weekly journal “Das Goetheanum” (print and online), in the news section of the website at www.goetheanum.org and, if not already published, in “Anthroposophy

Reasons

In view of the increasingly obvious inconsistencies and untruths, especially about the gene-based “vaccinations” with which around ¾ of humanity has been “immunised” at least once, the question arises as to whether a great disaster has not been caused by corona and these “vaccinations”, the consequences of which we cannot yet overlook. A reappraisal of what has happened has long been underway informally, even if this is being ignored by politicians and the mainstream media and the corresponding agendas of supranational organisations are being driven forward, with which the population’s freedom can be massively restricted in the future in the event of alleged threats, not only from diseases.

In this context, a review of the behaviour of our anthroposophical institutions – in particular the Medical Section and the Leadership of the General Anthroposophical Society – is necessary in order to be better prepared for future challenges. The following is a summary of the main points that may need to be expanded:

  • Independently of Corona, it has been observed for some time that the management of our institutions is increasingly submitting to the alleged consensus in the sciences, which is only produced by the media and politics, and not only accepts the resulting “bans on thinking”, but also believes that it can cooperate with the corresponding institutions and carry out joint research within the “framework of thinking” prescribed by these institutions, but also to protect anthroposophy from attacks..[1]
  • As a result, even within the Society, scientific debate in the sense of a free spiritual life was not allowed, and dissenters were increasingly ignored or even discredited as conspiracy theorists (e.g. on the occasion of a book review in “Das Goetheanum”).
  • Although members of the Goetheanum Leadership did not fully share the views of the Medical Section leadership, they apparently did not speak out, or did not do so in a sufficiently visible way, for reasons of solidarity.
  • With the theory of the virus as a pathogen, monocausal thinking (actually a belief) has been followed, although there is no scientific evidence for this (see www.wtg-99.com/aufarbeitung) and Rudolf Steiner described this view as a modern superstition.
  • Rudolf Steiner’s statements contradicting these theories were either not reproduced at all or only in abbreviated form, so that he could appear to be in favour of vaccination.
  • It remains to be seen whether this was a pandemic in the true sense of the word.
  • The question of the being in the spiritual sense of vaccination was not addressed, although Rudolf Steiner already spoke of the vaccinated person being “clothed with a phantom” in relation to the smallpox vaccination at the time, whereby the person would become “constitutionally materialistic”.[2]
  • It can be assumed that many decisions in favour of “vaccination” were made in reliance on the pronouncements of the Medical Section. The considerable lack of research into both the processes of infection and the effects of vaccination on the higher limbs of the human being became apparent – and not just in relation to Corona..
  • The question arises as to why the critical voices, especially those of doctors and other experts from an anthroposophical and non-anthroposophical perspective, were not taken into account and why there was no or only inadequate response to the relevant information..

In view of the questions raised by the attitude of Anthroposophical Medicine, and the Medical Section in particular, during the so-called Corona pandemic, an open and unbiased reappraisal is essential. Ideally, this reappraisal should take place from within, in a neutrally moderated process between those responsible in the Society’s leadership and those who are involved and committed to this reappraisal. This would bring a considerable gain in authenticity, both internally and externally, and in several areas at the same time: scientific, medical and social – in the sense of a positive role model for necessary reappraisal processes in the rest of the world.

The aim of this review would be, among other things, to find mutually agreeable ways of dealing with similar challenges in the future, especially with regard to the free exchange of different points of view and their publication in the Society’s media.
