The motto of Rudolf Steiner's Philosophy Of Freedom is that truth empowers creative activity. Video text is from The Philosophy Of Freedom By Rudolf Steiner 1894 Preface (original chapter 1): "The Goal Of Knowledge"
Peace Based On Freedom, Not Justice or Force "Freedom is the only word which has a ring of immediate truth today… If, instead of such slogans as peace founded on justice, or peace imposed by force, people would only speak of peace based on freedom, then this word would echo round the world and kindle in the hearts of all a sense of security." Rudolf Steiner quote

The Philosophy Of Freedom Values - Truth, Individuality, and Freedom The Philosophy Of Freedom is the most important work of German Philosopher Rudolf Steiner. It was written in the 1890’s for the increasing conceptual power of scientific thinking that produced the rapid rise in technology. It is a science of freedom that places human evolution toward freedom on a scientific basis.
Postmodern Neo-Marxist Values (social justice movement) - Blind Passion, Tribalism, Cultural Determinism The values of Steiner’s Philosophy Of Freedom—Truth, Individuality, and Freedom— are opposed today by Postmodern Neo-Marxism that began with radical social protests in the late 1960’s. The value of truth is replaced with blind passion, individualism is replaced with tribalism, and freedom is replaced with cultural determinism. Postmodern Neo-Marxism is the underlying ideology of the today's Social Justice Movement expressed in Political Correctness.

The Philosophy Of Freedom is a guide to true knowledge. Human evolution is threatened by social and political movements such as socialism, political correctness and social justice. This is the result of errors in thought such as conformity, the illusion of freedom, one-sided views, everyday thought, perception bias and false conclusions. I am working on 15 principles of true knowledge and true self taken from The Philosophy Of Freedom.
Each one of us is either evolving forward toward our True Self or falling back. To move forward it’s essential to know where you are going, otherwise we will often get lost by taking wrong turns. Rudolf Steiner’s Philosophy Of Freedom is a map that guides us to True Knowledge and our True Self. -- I went through the chapters in the book and came up with 15 strivings of the Ethical Individualist that leads to True Knowledge in Part I and our True Self as a free spirit in Part II. Upcoming videos will be on these strivings. -- DISCLAIMER: These are the strivings of mature individuals who are no longer content following their animal instincts or conforming to the rules of social tribes but are are willing to think for themselves. Human development moves through three stages. Nature makes us natural beings, society makes us law-abiding beings, only the individual alone can make himself a free being.
A working translation of section 5 from Chapter 2 of "The Philosophy of Freedom as a Basis For Artistic Creation" has just been posted on the blog with the same title. (Note that it is not the Paragraphs that are being translated, as I noted, but the sections.)
