I guess I would suggest that if the whole philosophy is something you completely disagree with, then perhaps a Waldorf-inspired unschooling thread might not be the best fit for you.
I find lots to take from both philosophies. We're not dogmatically Steiner (but I feel I need to be pretty well-versed in that precisely so that I can draw what I find fits and let go what does not). We're certainly not radical unschoolers (and there we have a philosophy that I completely disagree with...I think it is immensely harmful for emerging children). I do like a lot of what Holt has to say about protecting the curiosity and educational enthusiasm of children. I find this meshes well with the Steiner philosophy of protecting the childhood.
I also manage to walk a middle ground for my family where I take my very important role of mother as guide to introduce my children to what I think is best at the time, but stay open to listen to what inspires and speaks to my kids. Waldorf schooling can be just as rigid as public schooling, but Waldorf homeschooling is very flexible, I find. At it's heart is the idea of rhythm, not schedule. My 6 year old isn't ready for first grade reading, but my next child, carried by his older brother's first grade work next year, may be ready at an earlier age.
I think people get all caught up in "The Philosophy", when I think Waldorf, and Steiner, once you get down to brass tacks, is mostly about honoring the child's individuality and fostering his freedom.
As for the knights topic, we will have to disagree about that. If you are worried about bumping up against certain uglinesses in history, well, a lot will get left out. My kids are little children...some day we will learn all about feudalism and they can see for themselves what it looked like and what lessons can be applied to their circumstances. For now, this history is their very own history (my family tree traces back to knights accompanying William of Normandy to conquer England), and we take the magic of that misty distance in time to explore child-appropriate themes.
I continue this only because the knights came up again (busy knights!). My kids mostly play dinosaurs and families. Knights only really come up around Michaelmas.
I also want to speak about media. I actually came to Waldorf through unschooling. I knew I didn't want my kids in the public schools for lots of reasons, among them I wanted them to be free from peer pressure and the "Lord of the Flies" type scenarios on the playground until they were developmentally able to see that for what is was and be strong enough in their own skins to make decisions from inner as opposed to outer influences. It was a short step for me to also see TV in this regard. How can kids be truly unschooled in the sense I mean above, if they are so bombarded by so much media? I wanted them to follow their interests and passions umemcumbered by all that, from an inner place.
I have come to see that, in our family, if I want to really let my kids be free, unschooled, it needs to come from a place of having a strong commitment to a school of thought on child development. I use that to help them sort through the big wonderful world in a way that maximizes the chances that they will not only get what comes their way, but it vibrates Truth through their very beings because it came at the right time in the right way. If we start on a path of doing something at the 'Waldorf pace' and it just doesn't go well, we drop it and find something else, usually based on something the kids have led me to, because Steiner also said 'know your child, know him as your primary job, and guides him from that wisdom' (my paraphrase).
I really do find these philosophies compatible and beautiful and would truly like to find a space where both are welcome and there is support and discussion about how that works out for each family.
