So too has a strange, as yet, ill-defined alternate reality invaded and infested our time. Greer was so struck with the uncanny similarities between The King in Yellow, and the parapolitical events that led up to the 2016 presidential election, he titled his work on the magical and occult roots of political power, after 45… aka: the Orange One.
So Babylon Bandwidth represents the insidious and pervasive black-op that is being waged upon mainly unsuspecting populations, worldwide. This black-op, perpetrated by the prevailing predator/dominator patriarchy, is so complete as to be mistaken for our consensual reality. It is devised and developed through public relations, and is activated and delivered through mass media platforms. The key to it’s success is dependent upon the psy-op’s ability to persuade through emotion and desire.
Back to Greer’s The King in Orange: The Magical and Occult Roots of Political Power… his premise is that our socio-political reality can and should be viewed from a magical perspective. Recognizing that the ways in which we are being manipulated are occult in nature... is as reliable a world view as any… especially in these days of high strangeness. Greer’s definition of magic, by way of Dion Fortune, is as follows…
“Magic is the art and science of causing changes in consciousness in accordance with will.”
In these strange days, this is a dependable and actionable position from which to pursue Gnostic self-interest. One of the core principals of Tek-Gnostics is the actualization of self-autonomy as the basis from which to proceed. Self-determination provides a balanced posture of power and receptivity, where maligned manipulations lose their potency and influence over an individual's perceptions. Operating from a position of self-autonomy allows the individual to recognize Babylon Bandwidth as the delivery system of the Black Iron Prison.
“With this knowledge, we look for ways to “break the spell” that the black-media-magicians have cast upon a largely unsuspecting public. We look for the tools and opportunity to push back against mass media programming, while developing strategies to better prepare for an uncertain future. Given the revolutionary and game-changing potential that information technologies put in the hands of the individual, the outlook is increasingly in our favor... if we are willing to fight for it. We move to take personal responsibility for building a better tomorrow.”

For it’s unique perspective, I give The King in Orange a rating of 4 out of 5 fnords!
