I am trying to avoid the topic, but I couldn't help noticing that Iran's theocracy has more freedom and democracy than the Anthroposophical Society. Not as it was set up by Rudolf Steiner, but how those in authority today run things. For example, the Faust Branch of the Anthroposophical Society in Sacramento selects its officers secretly without a vote, the US Society selects the candidates you can vote for (they may have modified this slightly), the Vorstand (top council) doesn't allow a vote to select the top officers of the Society or a selection committee.
In Iran the party selects the candidates you can vote for like the Society, but the voters get to select the experts who select the supreme leader who then selects the people who determine who you vote for. The Iranian theocracy has checks and balances with the voters that the Anthroposophical Society lacks.
