We’ve been in place forever. Look around. Real estate, water rights, oil, cheap labor—all of that’s ours, it’s always been ours. And you, at the end of the day what are you?

Thomas Pynchon, Inherent Vice

It is never easy, even when the world is most normal and peaceful, to mark off with sharp lines the area of individual freedom. No person ever lives unto himself or is sufficient to himself. He is inextricably woven into the tissue of the social group. His privileges, his responsibilities, his obligations are forever over-individual and come from beyond his narrow isolated life.

In Nomine Babalon, CXXXVII

CXXXVII

As Persephone You’ve haunted my dreams,

The daughter of Styx is not what She seems!

My fate is tied to You forever and on,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!
