It is through the witchcraft of Alex Sanders that Wicca in the long run seems more likely to establish itself, if at all. The Alexandrians seem to have a far greater percentage of young people in their ranks, than the Gardnerians, and most of them are of a high educational standard. Sanders... has made numerous radio and television appearances, has appeared in several films in Britain, the Continent, and Canada, and is the subject of a book by June Johns, King of the Witches... Sanders is firmly at the helm of his enterprise; if he appears ambitious, he also has the future of Wicca at heart, expounding the principles and beliefs... with all the sincerity of any missionary.
