Crowley: "Oh great king, let me think for you"

We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit [societal rejects]: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. [Trust me.] Compassion is the vice of kings: STAMP DOWN THE WRETCHED & THE WEAK: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and THE JOY OF THE WORLD.... [Well, it's the joy of the Satanic "underworld" anyways.]
[...]
King! Love one another with burning hearts ["code" for deliberately loveless sexual abandon - "burning hearts" implies destruction of love]; ON THE LOW MEN TRAMPLE IN THE FIERCE LUST OF YOUR PRIDE, in the day of your wrath. Ye are against THE PEOPLE, O my chosen!
[...]
If Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops & does nought. If Power asks why, then is Power weakness. Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise. Enough of Because! Be he damned for a dog!  [Don't question me!]
[...]
KILL AND TORTURE; SPARE NOT; BE UPON THEM!
[...]
DRAG DOWN THEIR SOULS TO AWFUL TORMENT: LAUGH AT THEIR FEAR: SPIT UPON THEM! [I told you not to ask why!]
[...]
There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt. [as long as you want to kill and torture]
from The Book of the Law, by Aleister Crowley [emphasis added]

What we see here is an effort by Crowley to intensify the egotism of those who have embarked on the path to "wizardry," in order to convince them that it's OK to abandon themselves to their lower instincts and impulses, while on the other hand telling them not to ask questions about how such crimes facilitate the attainment of supposed magical powers. (Satanism's "magical powers" are Satanic beings, and you don't get them - THEY GET YOU! Rudolf Steiner referred to this type of possession as "radically evil," which might explain why Crowley was known as the "wickedest man in the world," when he was in this world. But then, perhaps he too was possessed - by a Spirit of Darkness - which would explain a lot, and which would let his spirit off the hook for what was done with his body.) But in effect he's telling these "kings" that thinking is unreliable, and that they should just obey him, apparently because he just knows, without having to think.
