Millions of people were shocked, surprised and even horrified by Donald Trump’s election as the 45th President of the United States. From the outset his detractors considered his candidacy little more than a sick joke; a populist publicity stunt designed simply to further his own career at the nation’s expense. Behind the public facade, however, unseen forces were at work and as the campaign wore on, those convinced of Trump’s imminent failure became less and less sure of themselves. His victory turned their world upside down. As pathetic as Hillary Clinton’s campaign was, something else was needed to explain Trump’s seemingly unlikely triumph. But just what might account for this polarising paradigm shift?

Invisible to most, within the concentric circles of Trump’s regime lies a cabal of occultists, power-seekers, and mind-magicians whose influence is on the rise. Did the power of positive thinking and the much-vaunted practice of ‘manifesting’ help put Trump in the White House? Are there any other hidden powers of the mind at work in world politics today? In Dark Star Rising, Lachman lifts the lid on magical and esoteric ideas that are impacting political events right across the globe. From so-called New Thought to Chaos Magick and far-right esotericism, we follow a trail of mystic clues that involve, among others, positive thinking pioneer Norman Vincent Peale, Objectivist philosopher Ayn Rand, Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Alt-Right, Pepe the Frog, and various domineering gurus and demagogues.

We have now entered a mind-bending matrix of occult politics where post-truths and alternative facts proliferate and where change is the only certainty. In the early 21st Century, the borders between fantasy and reality have begun to blur and break down. If anything can be said with any conviction it is that there will be much more chaos to come.

John Michael Greer – Dark Age America: Part Two

January 28, 2017

John Michael Greer 7

John Michael Greer discusses his latest book Dark Age America – Climate Change, Cultural Collapse, and the Hard Future Ahead. As we lurch on into the early part of the 21st Century, converging crises in energy, economy, and environment are rapidly undermining the foundations of industrial civilization and the materialistic way of life which so many of us take for granted. Energy – because cheap, easily accessible fossil fuels are running out and industrial civilization as we know it simply cannot be sustained by renewables. Economy – because at almost every level, global, national, corporate, and personal, we are drowning in debt that cannot and therefore will not be repaid but whose unravelling will cause mass destruction of governments, banks, entire industries, and millions of lives. Environment – because centuries of industrial civilization have wreaked havoc on the biosphere, triggering catastrophic climate change while poisoning the ecosystems on which life on Earth depends.

John Michael Greer – Decline and Fall

July 11, 2014

John Michael Greer 4

John Michael Greer discusses his book Decline and Fall: The End of Empire and the Future of Democracy in 21st Century America. “Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.” Although he was writing nearly a century ago, William Butler Yeats could just as easily be describing the United States today. The decline and fall of America’s global empire is the central feature of today’s geopolitical landscape, and the nature of our response to it will determine much of our future trajectory, with implications that reach far beyond the limits of one nation’s borders.
