This can't be accurately distinguished by gender or race, though.The question is, why is Thelema Eurocentric?
Is it? "Also the mantras and spells; the obeah and the wanga; the work of the wand and the work of the sword; these he shall learn and teach." Is this metaphorical, or was Crowley being instructed to learn and teach African-rooted Caribbean magick?
Yeah I agree and I stated that above in my Mon Dec 26, 2016 3:34 pm post where I wrote,
"Do I think that [i]Liber Al is a white supremacist document? Well if the Law is for All then All are called to attempt to align with that Law. Black rights? White rights? Working class rights? Women's rights? Thou has no right but to do thy will ....................
Cp 2 ; 17. Hear me, ye people of sighing!
The sorrows of pain and regret
Are left to the dead and the dying,
The folk that not know me as yet.
18. These are dead, these fellows; they feel not. We are not for the poor and sad: the lords of the earth are our kinsfolk. 19. Is a God to live in a dog? No! but the highest are of us. They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us. 20. Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire, are of us.
As you can see, no particular race, class or gender specified i.e. the addressees in those passages are not categorized as such.[/i]"
