Recent study of the Three Fold State

About: president woodrow wilson's fourteen points

In one introduction to his 3-fold state book,  Rudolf Steiner argues strongly against Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points as a capitalist utopia.  Thought I would find them and post a reference here.

I don't think RS liked any orgainzing imposed from outside the group it applies to. The same he carries into the realms of education and labor .

At some point in my study of the 3-fold state of RS I will establish separate groups to study & expound on education & the spiritual life, labor & capital, judicial & the state.

I say that somewhere buried in this topic is the solution to war & 6197.  The challenge for me & others is that these ideas have been circulating around since before World War I. Indeed RS offered it up as a solution to preventing such things. And now we are engaged in another another ramp-up, (perhaps.)  One could almost desire a much faster pace of evolution in the matter.  The ideas I have read, I like. But I would like to bounce them up against others in today's context.  Anyone else out there ?

The RS Archives contain 89 references to writings & lectures or books on the subject. In particular there are 20 articles in the newspaper called the Threefold Social Organism which go into detail on selected topics. I think the set begins here.

This seems to funnel right into my Libertarian persuasion.

An expanded article in the Wikipedia does a decent job on Social Threefolding and the section on Rudolph Steiner is greatly enlarged. One should of course consult the original lectures & books for the authentic details.
