Not long ago, Star Foster was wrestling with Thelema, the religion/spiritual philosophy that was developed by Aleister Crowley. It occurred to me that I know very little about Crowley beyond the pop culture bits, so I picked up a biography.
At other times, he would simply stop unsuspecting fellows on the street and ask what they were doing; after they answered, he would reply, “and then?” This question would repeat until the other inevitably answered with something like, “Well, I suppose I shall die.” This was the opening Crowley waited for, when he would interject the phrase he was known for: “Then you’d better get right with God!” He would then add the wretched soul’s name and address to his book and for years afterward send religious literature.

I think we now know what Aleister was rebelling against.
