Rudolf Steiner: "One must gather everything together, to be created into a science of the forming of human conditions on Earth. Until this comes about no true healing can come into the arrangement of public affairs. What can be communicated from the spiritual world must flow into the regulations that one encounters. For this reason I have said in public lectures that it is important that everyone concerned with public affairs — statesmen and so on — should acquaint himself with these things. Through this alone can public servants master reality. They will not do it, or at least they have not done so up to now, but it is a necessity nevertheless. In accordance with the tasks of the fifth post-Atlantean period, emphasis must be put today on speaking out, on communication."
