The Great Beast on Politics: Aleister Crowley’s Thelemic State Revealed

Interesting article (from 18 March 2017) in New Dawn magazine by Dr K R Bolton…

“There is no law but do what thou wilt” is the dictum of Thelema, misunderstood precisely for what it is not: anarchism and ego-driven individualism of the type promoted by the ‘Black Adepts’ in the name of democracy, liberalism, human rights and other popular clichés designed to fracture and deconstruct society as a dialectical process for reconstructing a ‘new world order’. Crowley unequivocally stated that “do what thou wilt” “must not be regarded as individualism run wild.”

    Thanks to Mogg Morgan for the link, which I previously missed.

    This New Dawn article is actually an excerpt from a longer thought provoking article in the book I have referenced below. Troy Southgate is a polarising figure himself but I recommend the book of essays that that the Bolton essay appears in (poor editing notwithstanding) .

    Bolton, K.R. (2011). Aleister Crowley as political theorist. In T. Southgate (Ed.) Crowley: Thoughts and perspectives, volume 2 (pp. 5-
    28). Black Front Press: London
