Jennifer, I found this incredibly interesting to read because TBH I've always found Waldorf off-putting due what felt like a kind of anti-scientific and anti-modern philosophy, but I had no idea what that was grounded in. And in my own research on kids and tech, Waldorf pops up frequently as a beacon of "freedom" from the supposed tyrrany of technology in kids' lives.

So I'm curious: Do you see any practical or ideological connection between Waldorf's racist and colonialist roots, and its suspicion of technology?
