Politics and the Occult:The Left, the Right, and the Radically Unseen, by occult writer and Blondie founding member and former bassist Gary Lachman, is this month’s latest review on the reflective, witty blog A Robot, I Am Not.

“When most think occult politics, they think the overblown claims of Nazi Occultism and the Thule Society…Lachman debunks these fantastical claims by laying down the actual (and much less colorful) history of the Thule society…Lachman closes the book with some of his own thoughts on “illuminated politics” in the current years. His concerns about American Fascism are not overblown or misplaced. When the majority of a country is expecting a rapture or deliverance from above, its desires could be easily manipulated by overzealous demagogues…When a society is desperate it may look to any alternative that combines religion with political solutions.”
–JRITCH, A Robot I Am Not

Gary Lachman’s excerpt Dark Sides: The Jung Case  argues the Nazi’s fervent belief in myth rather than the occult.  Lachman explores C.G. Jung, like Hitler, as a great believer in the almost magical power of myth.  Jung,  whose  complex political opinions  are far too muddled to be labeled as simply fascist, is often charged with a certain nebulous nazi-ness.

In the end, Lachman classifies Jung as “one of the “good guys” who said “bad things.” “
