In a thought-provoking post about our campaign, Agitprop asked, “can a message be promulgated through a write-in campaign for a dead guy?” He points out the risk of such efforts:
“… message promulgation, using means established by The System/The Machine/The Spectacle, (a system fundamentally opposed to the kind of Liberty the Crowley 2012ers propose,) runs the risk of the message being appropriated and reordered to suit the whims of that system.”
We are, however, confident of the impossibility of this risk. We maintain that the message of Thelema is a poison pill to any system of control which would attempt to appropriate it. In fact, we maintain that The Spectacle would be reordered and appropriated by Thelema to the exact extent to which The Spectacle attempted to appropriate and reorder Thelema. We believe this is one reason Crowley remains depicted in spectacular, greatly exaggerated ways by even respected outlets like The Nation. Nothing repels The Spectacle more than Crowley’s true message of fundamental liberty.
Indeed, even the tabloid journalism and spectacular depictions of Aleister Crowley have ultimately served our purposes.
