‘Chaos Magic’: An Apt Metaphor for Post-Trump

Why do repeated falsehoods win in a post-truth society? Maybe it’s chaos magic.

I bought Peter J. Carroll’s Liber Null & Psychonaut: An Introduction to Chaos Magic years ago. These are two small companion books bound together as one. It was a used paperback, published by Samuel Weiser, Inc. in 1987, and it contained a receipt from an occult bookstore on the West Coast in 1995. I don’t remember exactly when I bought it, but I read it in 2010. I didn’t know what to make of it then.
