Berkeley, CA: Privately published [ J. Edward Cornelius ], 2021. Second Edition, Revised & Enlarged. Softcover. Octavo. 380pp + i pp advert. Glossy black covers illustrated with sepia toned well known photo of Crowley on front cover, b&w illustration. "The Cult of Aleister Crowley" is a much revised & enlarged edition of Jerry Cornelius's earlier "Memoirs of an A.'.A.'. Initiate" (2018). Jerry describes his work: "Having been a Thelemite for well over fifty years, I have accepted that it doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize that the philosophy behind Aleister Crowley's Thelema offers no sound method for the masses in creating a working society - it's merely a utopian fantasy concealing a law which maintains, "Let my servants be few & secret: they shall rule the many & the known" (Liber AL vel Legis I:10). It seems like the philosophy was not meant for the masses because the Law of Thelema works only if everyone acts responsibly-but we know, as this book will show, that the vast majority of humanity, especially those within the O.T.O. and A.'.A,', do not act maturely, nor will they ever reach the spiritual standards of Thelema. The bulk are mere sheep, ba-a-aing in a field, fenced in on four sides and unable to perform the simplest tasks of discipline of which Thelema requires. … This book was originally released as the popular 'Memoirs of an A.'.A.'. Initiate, Being a True Story of the Struggles for Freedom in the 1990s Against the Restrictionists' (2018)., and was so popular that it was sold out with a month. This new edition is reduced type from 13 to 12-point (adding space), and is no longer just about the A.'.A.'. but has well over 150-pages of controversial OTO information added." This is a first in that it is the premier "paperback" in all of the books that Jerry and Erica have published privately. We think it looks great! NEW book, in Fine condition. Item #69600
