This is a long rambling piece posted at VeteransToday “A Journal for the Clandestine Community.” When reading, consider the source. In a lot of ways it’s your typical conspiracy theory potpourri linking Jay-Z with the Illuminati, OTO, Peaches Geldof etc. The one difference is the author seems to appreciate the actual relationship between all these different people and organizations. He doesn’t push the issues of solid connections and presents the relations being more a matter of influence, for instance:
“In other words, the sexual calculus occult nature that people like Jay Z, Rihanna, Beyonce, Kanye West and others have created for themselves was spiritually born out of Crowley’s sexual rituals and Freemasonry. Rihanna’s and Beyonce’s sexually explicit videos, in other words, are all indirect manifestations of Crowley’s vision of the sexual revolution.
“Whether they like it or not, Beyonce, Rihanna and others are indirectly supporting Crowley’s work. Crowley would have been proud to give them great accolades and would have almost certainly supported their explicitly sexual videos.”
OK – so our relative sexual freedom was instigated or at least promoted/popularized by Aleister Crowley’s work during his own time and then via his adherents in the years since? Sounds good to me!
So this article is amusing compendium of some contemporary figures Crowley’s influence HAS touched either directly or indirectly and percolated through modern culture to a degree we don’t always appreciate. So enjoy the read, best done with a grain of salt of course!
