Here you can safely learn of one aspect of the hidden philosophy behind Trump and far right fascist Republicanist movement and the propganda techniques at play. Many of us had already figured out much of what was written in this book. Especially the connections between chaos magic techniques, new thought, paradigm shifting, word viruses, advertising, and fascist propaganda.

Very interesting book. I was exposed to a lot of concepts I really had never considered. Look forward to reading more from this author.

The author doesn't come right out and say he thinks Crowley was a charlatan but for most rational people that disclaimer shouldn't be necessary anyway. I'm glad I read this and now, having satisfied my curiosity, I doubt I will feel the need to revisit the subject of Aleister Crowley.

For me this was the best possible approach to the subject: the author avoids the extremes of redundant hectoring and leap of faith endorsement and so creates a narrative that sustains interest throughout.
