Origins of Anthroposophy

I just stumbled across a memorable RS quote:

"John [Lazarus-John the Evangelist] received the Book of Revelation from regions where Anthroposophy dwelt before descending to human beings." - "The Book of Revelation and the Work of the Priest" [GA 346] Lecture 9 (Dornach, 13 December 1924).

I wish the lurkers or monitors from PLANS would repeat this quote on their WC list and compare it to Peter Staudenmaier's confused and misguided nonsense in "Anthroposophy and Ecofascism", where he describes the origins of Anthroposophy as follows:

"Anthroposophy and National Socialism both have deep roots in the confluence of nationalism, right-wing populism, proto-environmentalist romanticism and esoteric spiritualism that characterized much of German and Austrian culture at the end of the nineteenth century."
