There seems to be a very fine line between finding what works and how (why, when, who and where) and just making shit up and BSing your way through shit (fake it till you make it).
As a result you get a lot of over lapping and polarized systems (white lighters and “left handed path walkers” or whatever and bull shit and confusion and scammers and people taking advantage of the new and the clueless. Or people just going I don’t fucking even know.
This has probably been a topic that has been topic-ed to death but I’ve been getting into my old Slash/Hack comic trades (that I am still missing a few in the series) and well, you can say a lot about the 80’s slasher horror films but they sure never stay dead and down. Kinda like this topic.
But a lot with magic, occult and wiccan and such is still fairly new and a mish-mash of bits and parts more or less “made up” and made “true” by some people. And there’s the whole culture appropriation thing that’s become real popular to scream about.
So just really, what is the difference? Is there a difference and honestly, does it matter?
The answer is always going to be 42 but lets say it isn’t…
