Edward Alexander Crowley was born into a wealthy family on October 12, 1875 in the United Kingdom. When the boy was only eleven years old, his father died and the boy rebelled against God and religion. Crowley had no need to work, so he changed his name to Aleister and dedicated his life to writing poetry and books that glorified and proselytized a decadent lifestyle.
Crowley was initiated to the highest level of Freemasonry and was a high priest of the Golden Dawn. He once said, “A white male child of perfect innocence and intelligence makes the most suitable victim.” See more at EXPOSED!
Much of what Crowley wrote has inspired what is known today as the “new age” movement, Satanism and Luciferianism. “Do What Thou Wilt” is reflected in “If it feels good, do it”.
