Augustus Invictus publishes LSD journals

Augustus Invictus

From a February 2nd article by Scott Powers, published by

The Libertarian Party of Florida’s candidate for the U.S. Senate has admitted to frequent LSD use and released what he calls his “LSD Journals,” a long, rambling set of observations and musings that range from longings for elusive love and friendship to fantasies of rape and murder.

Augustus Sol Invictus, 32, is an Orlando lawyer who earned some fame as counsel to accused neo-Nazis, then filed to run for the U.S. Senate as a Libertarian. He drew more notoriety last summer for claiming to have drunk goat’s blood as part of a pagan ritual.

Now there are his LSD Journals, which contain writings full of pathos, philosophical meditations, classical references, anger and descriptions of imagined violence. The set of writings posted on his campaign website late Sunday evening ends with the words, “Let the Earth be drowned in Blood.”

Invictus confirmed by message and email to FloridaPolitics Monday evening that the writings are “in real time during acid trips.”

“They are both a literary experiment and a record of my experiences. Of course I acknowledge LSD use: that is the entire point of the journals,” he wrote in the email to FloridaPolitics.
