2002 will be a year of slowdown, perhaps a year of profound recession. It is no coincidence that in the U.S., the country that has most firmly embraced a meritocratic ideology, the two most successful publishing genres are books on how to get rich and books on how to recover one's self-esteem. Expect strong sales of the latter in 2002. It will be a year when many people's self-esteem will suffer along with their economic fortunes. Our troubles will be part of a global downturn, but this won't help to shift the humiliation of being fired.
Reading Crowley's Magick Without Tears helped me recover my self-esteem, and I wonder if it might be a good idea to reprint this book in big numbers, both to help people recovering their self-esteem and to get an introduction to Thelema.
Crowley said that the most valuable of the writings of Eliphas Levi (whom Crowley considered to have been his prior incarnation) were his letters of instruction to his students.
In my opinion the same can be said about Crowley's writings: that his most valuablewritings are his letters of instruction to his students.
