It's Independence Day in America, and before I get ready to fire up the grill, I thought I'd take a moment to ask for reflections on America from a Thelemic standpoint.
My own view can be summed up in this way: I think of the founding of the U.S. as one of the most important advances in the cause of liberty yet seen, an inspiration to most of the nations of the world. But the America of the past 50 years has become one of the greatest obstacles to liberty, and an example to the nations of the world of what they do not wish to become.
I see Thelema, a tradition uncompromisingly dedicated to liberty, as a channel for the preservation of the best of America's founding ideals, even as the influence of the nation-state itself continues to decline.
