The wrong-mindedness of the battle cry "Workers of the world, unite!"

Cult 45

Rudolf Steiner:  "Just think of the battle cry of the proletariat of the modern age. Behind this battle cry there stand very justified demands of mankind — I have often dealt with this. But these demands are not, to begin with, appealed to. In our idea of the threefold social order they are appealed to for the first time. Something essentially different is appealed to: Proletarians of all countries, unite! What does this mean? It means: Foster your antipathy against the other classes, foster, as individuals, what resembles hate, and unite; that means, love one another, unite your feelings of hate, look for the love of one class, search among you for the love of the members of one class out of hate. Love one another out of hate, on the basis of hate."
