As you might well imagine, the wise crone loves to exhume old stories and bring them back to life. She is against any censorship of ideas and especially book banning and book burning which to her is the tantamount sin and punishable by meeting Baba Yaga! Margaret Atwood (the most prophetic of wise crones) shows us that "powerful words can never be extinguished."
Crone is "a phase in which you can be more authentic, more capable of making a difference in your family and in the greater world. Life gives you experience, and when you draw from it, that's true wisdom. By the time a woman is in her crone years, she is in an amazing position to be an influence. To change things for the better, to bring what she knows into a situation, to be able to say, 'Enough is enough.' You don't have to just go along with things, which is often a part of the middle years. You're often something of a loose cannon."
