The Vice of Kings

Posted by

“Just when you thought it was safe to turn on the ol’ self-grappling show, we’re venturing back into the dark side of occultism with Jasun Horsley.

Jasun was here just a couple episodes ago talking about the first half of his new book, The Vice of Kings: How Socialism, Occultism and the Sexual Revolution Engineered a Culture of Abuse. That chat focused primarily on the Fabian Society and their brand of socialism and how it has shaped, or helped shape, modern society and the culture of abuse that seems to have grown up in it.

This time around, Jasun is going to dig a bit deeper into the role occultism plays in this, particularly the brand of occultism made popular by Aleister Crowley. We also touch on the left-hand path as social engineering, and Crowley’s influence on Timothy Leary and Wicca. It is quite a thought-provoking chat, so make of it what you will. Pun intended. Of course, any healthy discourse and discussion is encouraged.” – Occulture Podcast
