(6 January 1917)
"Nationalism, imperialism, spiritual life. The mechanical world of material progress is non-national,
like a body which is to receive non-national spiritual science as its soul. Nationalism arises because
soul development lags behind material progress. Profusion of ideas in the age of German Idealism. The
power of slogans which are divorced from reality.
The abstract idea of ‘eternal peace’. Which countries could have embarked on disarmament? British
imperialism. The puritanical and the imperialistic stream } in England. The importance of absolute truthfulness."
