The Crowley Corollary achievement has today been unlocked in the 2016 US elections!
I conjured the Crowley Corollary to Godwin’s Law as a “lesser banishing ritual of the analogy” against a particular and common specious rhetorical collocation of Aleister Crowley and Satanism.
“Once a discussion of some topic reaches a comparison between Satanism and Aleister Crowley, its usefulness is over.” [via]
And the corollary to the corollary:
“The person guilty of The Crowley Corollary knows nothing interesting or useful about Aleister Crowley or Satanism, if anything at all.” [via]
Today this level of absurdity has been reached with a recent breathless Satanic Panic release about Hillary Clinton advisor John Podesta maybe attending some Marina Abromovic performance art dinner via totes legit and rational sources Drudge, Infowars and Wikileaks discussed by Xeni Jardin at Clinton advisor Podesta is a sex magic witch: Drudge Report via Infowars via Wikileaks (seems legit):
John Podesta practices Aleister Crowley-inspired blood sex semen magic, reports Drudge Report, citing Infowars, which cites Wikileaks. They just went Full Drudge.
