Dark Star Rising
Chaos magick and the rise of Trump
Gary Lachman’s new book Dark Star Rising explores the relationship between magic and esoteric ideas and their impact on contemporary political events across the globe. From the American New Thought movement to Chaos Magick, the far-right esotericism of Julius Evola and the Traditionalist school, Lachman traces an occult trail of clues that draws in Norman Vincent Peale, Ayn Rand, Pepe the Frog, Meme Magic and the alt-right, Vladimir Putin and his postmodern Rasputin Alexander Dugin, to build a startling tale of how magical thought may have helped put Donald Trump in the White House and spurred the growth of Nationalist politics in Europe.
