Aleister Crowley for President of Ireland

While this website was created with the idea of promoting a write-in campaign to elect Aleister Crowley President of the United States, the idea has spread to other countries, including one which Aleister Crowley held dear — Ireland.

Indeed, the campaign has even spread to countries where elections are not even held in 2012. See the German, Spanish, and Serbian translations of the basic information contained on this site.

Ireland had a special place in Crowley’s heart, however. He called himself an Irishman in The Book of Lies, wrote a poem for St. Patrick’s Day, and even penned an Irish Declaration of Independence. He also had some thoughts on an improvement to the flag of Ireland, which he expressed in a letter to the editor of the New York Times, published July 21, 1915:

“The true flag of Ireland is a red sunblaze on a green ground. This is symbolical not only of Ireland’s geographical position as the sentinel of the western gate of Europe, but of her traditional history.”

Ireland today faces many issues for which Aleister Crowley would certainly be able to offer some guidance. We have written before on Irish politics, including the new blasphemy law, and on the Euro crisis which has created much difficulty for Ireland.

About ac2012

We realize that Aleister Crowley is dead. And British. And, moreover, not running for office. Nevertheless, we believe that the most effective vote you can cast in 2012 is one for Aleister Crowley. “The absolute rule of the state shall be a function of the absolute liberty of each individual will.”
