The Ahrimanic Deception . 1919

The Ahrimanic Deception . 1919

A lecture by Rudolf Steiner
Zurich, 27th October, 1919.

Translated from shorthand report unrevised by the lecturer.

In the collected edition of Rudolf Steiner's works,
the volume containing the German text is entitled,
Der Innere Aspekt des sozialen R├Ątsels;
Luciferische Vergangenheit, Ahrimanische Zukunft
(Vol. 193 in the Bibliographic Survey).

In addressing a public audience today on the most important question of our time, it makes a great difference if one speaks from a knowledge of the deeper forces of world-historical evolution, that is, from Initiation-science, or if one speaks without such knowledge. It is relatively easy to speak about modern questions if one relies upon data of external knowledge which are considered scientific, practical, and so on. It is, however, extraordinarily difficult to speak about these questions from the standpoint of initiation-science - from which indeed everything is derived with which we have to deal at such gatherings as ours today. For he who speaks from that standpoint about problems of the time knows that he is opposed not only by the casual, subjective opinions of those to whom he speaks. He knows too that a great part of mankind today is already under the control, from one side or another, of Ahrimanic forces of a cosmic nature which are growing stronger and stronger. To explain what I mean by this, I must give you a kind of historical survey of a fairly long period of human history.
