My study into Esoteric Orders have revealed a few things. First, while Fortune is clearly the lesser of two evils when paired with Crowley, it is still an evil.
This book alone is so peppered with casual racism that I even wonder is her work inspired some of doon fascists of her day.
Second, esoteric orders are designed to create a system of power and we all know the first order of anyone in power is to maintain that power. Because it is mighty convenient that we are to trust no one but the perpetrators of our abuse initiations and torture and that those perpetuators are perhaps selected esotetic In my world, knowledge is power and we all have a right to power over ourselves but not over others.
Ordefs furthermore, education and spirituality are rights and therefore should be accessible and free of hierarchy. You have no power over me, and what scares you most is that you see clearly the power I have over myself.
I hold my power. I know it well. Even the allure of esoteric knowledge cannot make it waver. Apr 11, James Hein rated it really liked it. This provides a good overview of the esoteric world.

Her pseudonym was inspired by her family motto “Deo, non fortuna” Latin for “by God, not fate”. This latter is a collection of short stories based on her experiences with Theodore Moriarty.
Of her non-fiction works on magical subjects, the best remembered of her books are; The Cosmic Doctrine, meant to be a summation of her basic teachings on mysticism; The Mystical Qabalah, an introduction to Hermetic Qabalah; and Psychic Self Defence, a manual on how to protect oneself from psychic attacks.
Though some of her writings may seem dated to contemporary readers, they have the virtue of lucidity and avoid the deliberate obscurity that characterised many of her forerunners and contemporaries.
