One of our readers recently took the time to write in with a rebuttal to our article Thelema a Destructive Path I found the the information provided to be quite insightful and with permission of the writer I am posting it here for all of you to read. Any questions or thoughts may be sent to the Author directly to Nanamin
I’ve been reading articles on excommunicate.net off and on for a couple years now. I find many of them very helpful + enjoyable in various ways, but found one which I think is quite inaccurate and could use some re-thinking, editing, or a commentary from a different perspective. This article, written on 9/6/07 is called “Thelema, a destructive path?” (http://www.excommunicate.net/thelema-a-destructive-path). Here are some of my thoughts on this issue, from the perspective of a Thelemite. I’m sure other Thelemites would have more to say, and I’m certainly no authority on the matter.
One more thing, I hope you, the author, or whomever takes the time to read this, since I did put a lot of thought and time into it. Please don’t interpret any of it as hostile either; no emotion or insult is intended in any of my response.
