"The essence of my Word is to declare woman to be Herself, of, to, and for Herself; and I give this one irresistible Weapon, the expression of Herself and Her will through sex, to Her on precisely the same terms as to man." - Aleister Crowley, The Law is for All.
"The princes of Europe should consider carefully whether they can do without our support. We immoralists--we are today the only power that needs no allies in order to conquer: thus we are by far the strongest of the strong. We do not even need to tell lies: what other power can dispense with that? A powerful seduction fights on our behalf, the most powerful perhaps that there has ever been--the seduction of truth--"Truth"? Who has forced this word on me? But I repudiate it; but I disdain this proud word: no, we do not need even this; we shall conquer and come to power even without truth. The spell that fights on our behalf, the eye of Venus that charms and blinds even our opponents, is the magic of the extreme, the seduction that everything extreme exercises: we immoralists--we are the most extreme."
- Nietzsche, The Will to Power sec. 749.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

This journal opens the door to political chambers forbidden by even the most outspoken defenders of free expression. Inside I address my Fraters and Sorors, those of you who have adopted the tragic causes of the blame America first crowd. Politics being fine and even fashionable as long as there are no conservative ideas to ruin the entertainment, the fringe neither suffers nor admits real engagement. Instead it revels in downward spiraling fantasy.
Be careful of what you cast out- the vacancy is quickly filled. - AOS

"Reason and Emotion; these are the two great enemies of the Ethic of Thelema. They are the traditional obstacles to success in Yoga as well as Magick." - Aleister Crowley
It is by going through all these confusing (and sometimes seemingly contradictory) attributions, with unwearying patience and persistent energy, that one comes at the end to a lucid understanding, to an understanding which is infinitely clearer than any intellectual interpretation could possibly be. This is a fundamental excercise in the way to initiation. - Aleister Crowley from The Book of Thoth
