Firstly, nearly all the salacious stuff about Crowley was printed by newspapers that , at the same time were saying, what a; "Jolly good chap the
Herr Hitler Is". Ie, the Daily Mail and the Telegraph.
Secondly, they only published the stories when they knew Crowley didn't have the financial wherewithal to take them to court over it.
Thirdly, The quote everyone seems to try and damn him with is completely taken out of context and never fully quoted. "Do thou what thy wilt shall be
the whole of the law, but remember, thou reapest what thou sow". Which is not quite the same meaning as many would have you believe.
Fourth, Whatever the bloke was and truth is, he was a *rock star* before the name was invented, id anything. They guy climbed without oxygen one of
the highest peaks in the world. A feat still unequaled to this day.
The truth is, if you actually read his works and many of them are actually just a wind up for gullible fools, seeking a simple way to power. He
actually says himself, in effect, it's all a load of bull. The whole point is to challenge yourself on a daily basis and never just accept that which
you are told as truth simply because of a person's position in life.
Flawed ? yes of course he was, but he presaged the modern world in so many ways, in his understanding of the way the media was moving.
