Thanks to Greg Kaminsky of the Occult of Personality podcast for the excellent interview with Aleister Crowley 2012 creator, J. Thiebes. The discussion covers Thelema, Ordo Tempi Orientis, the AC2012 campaign, and much more.
“… an exploration of Thelema and politics and the implications of applying Thelemic doctrine to the political sphere. Thiebes talks about the difference between government for the greatest good versus the greatest freedom of the individual. He notes that in modern political debate, the policy objectives often have little to do with individual freedom, ultimately eroding that freedom in a piecemeal fashion. Thiebes also talks about the humorous nature, and serious intent, of the Aleister Crowley 2012 project, whose motto – ‘Change we can be skeptical about’ contrasts nicely with typical political sloganeering.”
