1905-1982 – Gallo-Hellenic religious writer with perhaps good intentions but no really significant spiritual knowledge – her attempts in that field read like a merely intellectual endeavour to influence masses in a rather cynical way.
For a political ideology that concerns itself with the cultivation of Will and the accumulation of Personal Power (indeed, this writer’s nom de plume is pulled from this very concept), it bears a reminder, every now and again, what the individual should try to accomplish with that Power.
