Behind the unlikely rise of Donald Trump lie occult forces that still shape his rule. We take an expansive look at these various movements and ideologies: New Thought, Meme Magic, Julius Evola & Traditionalism, Chaos Magic, and more. This exploration faces the rise of chaos gods from ancient Egypt, postmodern mysticism, and Randian superheroes. What’s more, we find that radical magical thinking informs today Russian and other European politics. And does the Left have a metaphysical answer or is it dependent on only secular solutions?
Astral Guest — Gary Lachman, author of Dark Star Rising: Magick and Power in the Age of Trump.
