The first thing to mind is, of course, that Blavatsky predicted
this kind of thing would happen.

Second, the president of Llewellyn once told me that his
books sell best when times are tough, and worst during
the good times. This was, he said, because magic and
occultism allow people to take a little more control of their
lives. People with cancer or other major diseases, for
example, will gravitate to the occult simply because they
have lost self-control and are seeking to regain it.
