THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE GULLIBLE
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Since my discovery of Thelema some years ago, I have often been
asked why anyone should bother to spread a new form of thought.
Many have mentioned that this is the greatest country in the
world and that it does not need changing. My question is this:
"for whom does the current system work?" Let me explain what I
Have you ever noticed that there are no fruit flies in Beverly
Hills or Bel Aire? In fact, the only spraying has been done on
lower to middle income neighborhoods.
I sincerely believe that us Southern Californians need to watch
the way we use our water. I had no problem with the restrictions
which were imposed on us, after all those restrictions apply to
everyone, right? Wrong! 96% of all the water used in Southern
California is used by Agriculture and Industry. Did you know
that at the time of the writing of this article there are no
restrictions being enforced as to their use of water? The farmer
is allowed to continue wasting our water by using outdated and
insufficient methods of irrigation.
Why is it that the penalty for dumping toxic waste is not as
severe as the penalty for bringing fruit across the border?
Millions of tax dollars have been spent on the anti-smoking
campaign by the same people who are now trying to make us believe
that Malathion is safe. They expect us to believe that smoking
is far worse for us than having our houses, cars, and grass where
our children play sprayed with a pesticide! It seems that the
manufacturers of poisons (the oil companies) have been more
successful in lining the pockets of our congressmen than the
tobacco industry. By the way; where are the dollars going from
the cigarette tax?
There are thousands of homeless in this country. A third of them
are children, yet our President would like to spend billions of
our hard earned tax dollars to put a flag on Mars.
Thanks to their prehistoric views on human sexuality the
Christian movement has put this country decades behind in birth
control technology. Their policy makes it necessary to resort to
the barbaric use of abortion.
My point is this: The REAL problem isn't whether or not
Malathion is harmful. It is in our right to "just say no" to the
spraying. We were not asked if it was okay to spray our property
and our air, we were told we had no choice.
Proposition 103 (the insurance initiative) proves that the
people's vote is a secondary priority, next to the dollars of
The pro-choice movement is not about using abortion as a form of
birth control, it's about being able to decide for yourself what
is good for you. It's about having alternatives. It's about
Could it be that the anti-smoking campaign was launched to divert
peoples attention away from some more serious problem? We were
so busy pointing the finger at tobacco users that we forgot about
the thousands of diesel running trucks, buses, and cars that
account for some 96% of the air pollution in Los Angeles. These
vehicles are exempt from smog devices. How many times have we
been "diverted" the same way?
In 89 & 90 we have seen many struggles in the name of Freedom.
Beijing, Seoul, the Berlin Wall, Poland, Romania, and South
Africa. In our own country we lazily sat back and allowed those
who are supposed to watch out for our better interest take our
Freedom away. Congress has redefined the Constitution by
dictating which arms we have the right to bare. We shake our
heads in approval like some brainwashed robot thinking that we
need to be protected from ourselves. The Supreme Court took away
the Sacrament of Peyote from the American Indian & we sit back in
relief thanking our Gods it wasn't us. In Florida business
people are being jailed for selling albums that the Court feels
is "obscene". This may be the greatest country in the world, but
it is so very far from being perfect.
So the next time you pat yourself on the back for being a "free"
person, put aside all the propaganda you've been taught by others
about what Freedom is and see if you can make up your own
definition of the word. Until then, sweet dreams. I'll see you
when you wake up.
Love is the law, love under will.
In service to Our Lady,
LITTLE NAPOLEON AWARD
This award is dedicated to those who's vision of greatness has
lead them away from all that is just, right & good.
On 6/11/90 "Drug Czar" William Bennett, the director for the
National Drug Control Policy for the Bush administration, blamed
the Devil for the nations drug problem in a speech in New
Orleans. He said that too many people in drug treatment centers
call crack cocaine "The Devil", too often to ignore. He said:
"It is a product of the Great Deceiver", "I have seen the face of
evil". He even went as far as to call for the "death of
modernism", which is a philosophy that redefines Biblical and
Christian teachings in the contexts of modern science, historical
research or other developments. (And he calls cocaine the great
deceiver!) He praised the Supreme Court decisions to outlaw the
ritualistic use of Peyote by the American Indian and to allow
Bible Clubs in public schools. Mr. Bennett said nothing as to
the rights of other religious groups in our schools system, such
as Jewish, Moslem, Islamic, Buddhist, Pagan, and Thelemic. It is
very clear where Mr. Bennett stands on the equality issues.
In this space the RPSTOVAL REVIEW will be publishing a column
called: "GO ASK ALICE". Its function is to answer personal,
political, social, and Magickal question as applied to a Thelemic
view point. The reader is encouraged to ask questions, but it is
the policy of the Rpstoval Review to promote the exchange of
ideas based on free thought.

THE SHIT LIST
Once in a while we get wind of companies that have given in to
tyranny and oppression. We are not insinuating that anyone
boycott any of these companies. It is our intent, however, to
inform the reader what these companies stand for, and whose views
The following companies have canceled their financial support to
Planned Parenthood because of pressure (boycotts) applied by
"Right to Life" fanatics.

(The reason that these "fundies" are so effective in blackmailing
these corporations is that they give the impression that they are
many. This is easily accomplished because not everyone that
opposes them stands up. Get involved, these are your rights!)
Our Holy Book tell us that eating and drinking are Sacraments
unto the Goddess. Therefore, we have created this column to
bring you recipes for exotic and dishes and drinks from exotic
places. This space is dedicated to making this form of worship a
pleasant sensory experience.

ABORIO RICE (a South American dish)
by Soror Alice
I've tried this recipe recently and it is by far one of the most
colorful dishes I've ever seen. Helpful hint: This is not a
dish you can walk away from, it must be constantly stirred.
1 Tbs. saffron
2 1/14 cups of risotto or white rice.
1/4 cup of finely chopped yellow onion
7 Tbs. butter
1 cup chicken broth (real or substitute)
3/4 cup of white wine (not Sherry)
3/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan
Start by soaking the saffron in 2 Tbs. water.
Cook the rice according to directions on the package. After rice
is cooked, set aside.
Melt the butter in a deep saucepan. Add to that the onions.
Saute until onion becomes transparent. Add the cooked rice, then
stir in the saffron. Mix together well. Slowly add the wine and
chicken broth in increments allowing the rice to absorb it each
time. Cook the rice on medium-low heat until it becomes fluffy,
not sticky. (About 15 to 20 minutes). Continue adding the liquids
until they are all used up. Before serving stir in some white
wine and sprinkle with fresh Parmesan cheese. Serve with grated
fresh Parmesan on top.
And remember: "Eat, drink, and be fat and drunk".

baby girl. That's right folks; Soror Non Serviam and Frater
Ehubi have a baby! (Finally!). She was named Lenore Cline by
her parents, who are probably the happiest two people in the
world at this time. Congratulations, it couldn't have happened
to nicer people. We'll be waiting to hear those baby stories!
"Be the hour auspicious, and the gate of life opened in peace and
well-being, so that she that beareth children may rejoice, and
the babe catch life with both hands."
