Remembering Aleister Crowley:
October 12, 1875–December 1, 1947

Aleister Crowley by Charles Krafft

Aleister Crowley by Charles Krafft

177 words

Aleister Crowley was an English poet, novelist, painter, and mountaineer who is most famous as an occultist, ceremonial magician, and founder of the religion and philosophy of Thelema. But ironically Crowley’s supposed Satanism and Black Magic are far less frightening to most people than his politics. For Aleister Crowley was also a man of the Right, whose work inspired such important 20th-century Rightists as novelist and essayist P. R. Stephensen and military strategist and historian J. F. C.

Aleister Crowley jako teoretyk polityki 

charles_krafft_aliester_crowley_bust_far44,640 words

English original here and here

Aleister Crowley (1875–1947), samozwańcza „Wielka Bestia 666” stał się postacią na trwale obecną zarówno w środowiskach okultystycznych jak i we współczesnej kulturze popularnej. Jedni wychwalają go jako filozofa, maga i proroka. Przez innych jest potępiany jako zdeprawowany egomaniak. W większości wypadków postrzega się go przez pryzmat jego ekscentrycznych, nierzadko szokujących zachowań.  Read more …

Durant les quatre dernières décennies, on a écrit beaucoup de choses sur « l’occultisme nazi », généralement des bêtises. Chose incroyable, personne ne pensa à publier un recueil des textes « occultes » originaux du Troisième Reich – jusqu’à ce que Michael Moynihan et Stephen E. Flowers publient The Secret King: Karl Maria Wiligut, Himmler’s Lord of the Runes en 2001[1]. Read more …

Mr. Gurdjieff

Translated by Greg Johnson

Czech translation here

Individuals who help us put a finger on the disturbing way in which the existence of the great majority of people has been, metaphysically speaking, degraded, are rare in our times and run the risk of being confused with charlatans.

George Orwell on W. B. Yeats as Occult Fascist

William Butler Yeats, 1865–1939

227 words

“W. B. Yeats” (1943)

“Translated into political terms, Yeats’s tendency is Fascist. Throughout most of his life, and long before Fascism was ever heard of, he had had the outlook of those who reach Fascism by the aristocratic route. He is a great hater of democracy, of the modern world, science, machinery, the concept of progress—above all, of the idea of human equality.”

“How do Yeats’s political ideas link up with his leaning towards occultism? [. . .] To begin with, the theory that civilisation moves in recurring cycles is one way out for people who hate the concept of human equality. If it is true that “all this,” or something like it, “has happened before,” then science and the modern world are debunked at one stroke and progress becomes for ever impossible. [. . .] Secondly, the very concept of occultism carries with it the idea that knowledge must be a secret thing, limited to a small circle of initiates. But the same idea is integral to Fascism. Those who dread the prospect of universal suffrage, popular education, freedom of thought, emancipation of women, will start off with a predilection towards secret cults. There is another link between Fascism and magic in the profound hostility of both to the Christian ethical code.”
