AC Pensive

Dues and the OTO :)

93, all!

I don't know how much I'll be willing to comment further on this post. Nobody should feel badly if I don't -- there are issues of initiatory secrecy here; apologies in advance if I just go on to the next post.

A curious (non-LJ, and non-OTO) friend asks if I have an opinion on the current discussions about the funding of local OTO bodies, rather sniffily adding that since she thought Thelemic Orders were supposed to expel people who took money for magical instruction, she felt the current financial discussions were somehow undignified, if not mildly heretical. Smacking her upside the head, I have explained to her why the attitude toward money necessarily -- and by AC's design -- differed between OTO and A.'.A.'....but I thought I'd add here a few comments, for whatever they're worth, on the OTO dues issue itself.
