Heavy metal posits a simple question: why believe that the metaphysical runs in parallel to the physical, such that natural selection extends beyond the physical world? This arises from its worship of power and destruction at a time when most fear them.

O9A Endorses Biden-Harris 2024 Campaign

Posted: December 20th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Anarchy | Tags: , , , | Comments Off on O9A Endorses Biden-Harris 2024 Campaign

Politics can be summarized as a net loss for humanity, a political system we have adopted out of fear of the others in which the lowest common denominator of opportunism and emotionality triumphs over any kind of leadership.

That being said, democracy is failing; worldwide nations are going broke, preparing for war, inundated with refugees, beset by internal refugees, ruled by careerist psychopaths, and perhaps most ominously, electing leaders who are associated with foreign powers.

This means that the arc of history bends toward the end of democracy, and soon.

The last thing we want right now is one of these Christian band-aid do-gooders like Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswarmy, Chris Christie, Donald Trump, and Ron DeSantis to take over and fix things.

We want to rush into the abyss so that the “end of history” can come to its natural terminus and a new Dark Age will be visited upon the Earth.

In this new era, might will make right, the claw and tooth will always be red, and blood will cross the land like an ever-flowing stream. The strong will oppress the weak, the weak will die, and natural selection will resume.

This can only happen through weak humanist leadership that will stumble its way into war, famine, recession, terrorism, corruption, and human misery. The suicides will leave before the battles commence.

Only Biden-Harris can bring about this advancement of history, and therefore, we endorse the Biden-Harris campaign in 2024.

Rise Up Against the Enslaver

Posted: December 19th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Order of Nine Angles | Tags: , , , , , | Comments Off on Rise Up Against the Enslaver

Ever since the Revolutions, which began after the Mongol invasions and continued through The Enlightenment™ to the French Revolution and American Civil War, Western Civilization has wasted its time babysitting sociopaths and psychopaths.

The kings, who were a strong reductionist authority, kept this problem in check through Darwinism: a social caste hierarchy promoted the intelligent and kept the dumber in meso-serfdom.

They made a fatal mistake, however, which is forgetting that waste is part of life. In any population, a certain number of waste humans are produced, and if you make life easy (or worse, give them “freedom” and even worse, subsidies), you get many waste humans.

Our societies poisoned themselves with their own waste. Instead of removing the accumulation of useless and destructive people, we became soft-hearted and kept them around, and so a slow steady trickle of deleterious mutations wore us down.

At this point, your average modern person wears glasses, has tooth decay, struggles with one or more serious health problems, has bad mental health, and cannot think through the basics of what was part of common sense two centuries ago.

It turns out that the Revolutions were fought against the wrong thing. Instead of fighting the higher, we should have fought the lower, but that is not popular because weakness lurks in every human breast and we fear that we are the lower.

The manipulations of others increase this cycle. Parents try to control their children, local governments wield carrot and stick, and jobs — which replaced having your own farm — set up approved methods and reward those who obey even when results are mediocre.

An ends-over-means society has purpose: it wants to adapt and become healthy, always improving, because stagnation is death. A means-over-ends society wants peace by limiting bad methods like conflict, and it stagnates because it tolerates the bad as well as the good.

It would be odd then if the same process had not happened to our gods. The ancient gods were strong and amoral, not limited by method in order to civilize them, but rather passionate forces of nature like the winds, rain, gravity, storms, fire, and animals.

In that order, humans fit into the chain of animals reaching up to the gods, meaning that we were smarter animals but still animals, so we had to count on the Iron Rule of nature: every thing — people, ideas, methods, groups — acts only in its own self-interest alone.

When you had kings, this worked in your favor because although tempestuous, they were of the population and only succeeded when it did, which created a disincentive to tyranny, or the holding of power and wealth for their own sake, a means-over-ends pathology.

This means that all of modern politics is manipulative gibberish and distracting lies, and the real question is found in biology. We need to adapt to our environment and then improve our lot qualitatively, aiming for what Plato called the best life.

Instead of living sane lives, we are accepting what the Crowd tells us is important, and then rationalizing what we have as the best life so that we can succeed through social influence not fall afoul of the angry Herd, a means-over-ends fiction-absolute:

Even before I left graduate school I had come to the conclusion that virtually all people live by what I think of as a “fiction-absolute.” Each individual adopts a set of values which, if truly absolute in the world — so ordained by some almighty force — would make not that individual but his group . . . the best of all possible groups, the best of all inner circles. Politicians, the rich, the celebrated, become mere types. Does this apply to “the intellectuals” also? Oh, yes. . . perfectly, all too perfectly.

The problem with egalitarian societies is that knowledge does not move downward through the hierarchy because the lower cannot comprehend it. For this reason, organized human societies tend toward stupidity and insanity, then justify it is as “moral.”

In religion, the same is true. Any intelligence and sanity about religion will be esoteric, meaning that each stage of learning unlocks the next stage, but only then. These are inaccessible to all but a few in any civilization.

The ancients represented the gods as forces of nature. The message there was that morality is something humans must derive and enforce, not part of the world. It is up to us entirely and we are the only force that will produce that result.

Even more, this outlook says that morality itself is suspicious; in the ancient view, the only value is strength, and strength tends toward benevolence to the good and indeterminate, and violence toward the weak, useless, insane, stupid, criminal, and perverse.

In other words, the ancient gods are eugenic but the modern gods — like democracy — are dysgenic.

What people forget is that while mainstream Satanism is merely edgy atheist Leftism with a touch of libertarianism to keep it controversial, the Luciferians are theological, meaning that we believe in the ancient gods.

Let us for a moment dispense with labels and look at theology as a naturalistic question.

Plato gives us a solid start point by deriving theology from cause-effect reasoning and relativity, an argument that is hard to summarize but can be glimpsed from this passage in Phaedo:

Are not all things which have opposites generated out of their opposites? I mean such things as good and evil, just and unjust-and there are innumerable other opposites which are generated out of opposites. And I want to show that this holds universally of all opposites; I mean to say, for example, that anything which becomes greater must become greater after being less.

We know hot only because there is cold; we know death only because there is life, but conversely, we know life only because there is death, and therefore the two have a causal relationship which is inalienable.

Luciferians remain aware of what H.P. Lovecraft hinted:

That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

This points to the core of the Platonic argument, which is that all that we know of the tangible world arises in fact from

If we conceptualize “hot” and “cold” as absolutes, we see them as a binary: EITHER hot OR cold. However, if there are degrees of hot and cold, like the gap between a chilly day in San Francisco and the three Kelvin heat level of outer space, then it is a spectrum, not a binary.

The binary, in other words, is an imposed human creation. We see hot and cold relative to our own position, meaning what we know of hot and cold, instead of the wider range of possibilities. Those in fact are so beyond our grasp that they seem mythological.

Plato believes that because effects tend to be simpler than the full fact pattern of causes — a ball flying through the air is simpler than the child kicking it, the grass field, the open sky, and the other players of the game — that our world is the effect of a far bigger cause.

That cause, in his view, exists somewhere in the raw material of the universe itself, which he surmises to be informational, namely information or information-like in its nature. This wider data field is where we find all the interesting stuff like sleeping Ancient Ones.

To a Platonist, then, the gods are human descriptions of forces beyond our control, on par with us developing a god of magnetism, gravity, or rainfall. The ancient world was more alive, perhaps, because its gods were not separate from nature.

History tells us that ancients used an approach called mythic imagination to make human symbols out of the forces of nature and the divine:

Think of cause/effect reasoning like a study of a detail. I know why a single bolt exists in one tiny corner of the airframe of a 747; a worker put it there. But why does it make sense that the bolt go there? For that analysis, I need to understand the design of the 747: where stresses go, how energy flows through it, and how it interacts with its physical world.

The first analysis — that a bolt exists because a worker put it there — is what we might call an effects-based analysis. The latter — a study of the design, understanding the load-bearing function of that bolt — we might call a cause-based analysis. Most human chaos seems to arise from mistaking the former for the latter, and therefore never fully understanding why that bolt needs to be where it is.

Mythic imagination occurs when individuals look at the world and instead of trying to describe it in material terms, try to personify it, or describe it as if it were composed of human-like consciousnesses. In a seemingly paradoxical twist, the only way to escape a perspective limited by our humanity is to use human-ness as a metaphor and through it, which allows us to escape needing to know the details or spend endless fruitless time trying to derive them. Instead, we spot the pattern, and by using that which we know best, make the metaphor transparent.

The point of this, perhaps, is that their gods were non-political; they did not need to believe in a literal god who pulled the sun across the sky every morning in a chariot, but saw the symbol as a way of making beauty out of the natural process they witnessed.

In the same way, many of the “spiritual but not religious” people now even question the notion of a “god” as a being instead of a force. To them, religion consists of three important parts that rely on each other:

  1. There is a divine force parallel to nature.
  2. This provides some kind of afterlife or reincarnation.
  3. It shapes the universe toward goodness and complexity.

If I were to design a faith, that would be all that would be enclosed, since this much we can find in our intuition and the innocence of children. This world is a good place, it tends toward goodness and beauty, and something good waits after this life.

This religion would be perennialist and recognize that modern religions are all vocabularies, or different words, symbols, images, and stories being used to describe the same spirituality: the divine exists in parallel to nature and is beyond our conception.

For this reason, the pagan faiths were metaphorical and not symbolic or literal, especially since the latter two are easily confused in dualistic systems where a pure divine or moral state exists in opposition to an impure and immoral natural state.

The pagan faiths were banished by the Abrahamic religions long ago, leading to a need to reconstruct them from traces of esoteric wisdom of the past:

The advent of Christianity virtually erased all traces of pagan and heathen thought, which were the only indigenous ‘Western’ spiritual traditions. Even though there are some immensely dedicated movements making considerable progress in reconstructing ancient pagan/heathen traditions, a lot of valuable knowledge has been irrevocably lost. In this regard, Hinduism, in particular, is useful to study because it is the closest living major religion to those of ancient Europe, and it can provide many useful historical insights into the Pre-Christian West.

Abrahamic religions unite several things into their gods: a moral control system of means-over-ends thinking, a dualistic metaphysics which rejects “might is right” and “red in tooth and claw” nature for idealistic humanism, and the idea of universal truth.

The consensual hallucination that universal and absolute facts, truths, values, and communications exist is not merely a control mechanism, but a projection of human fears: we use these universals to control each other through language.

In the Abrahamic faiths, this means a list of methods that are unacceptable, leaving only the “safe” ones which allow others to be individualistic without anyone noting that they are unrealistic or venal. It is a mentaly of keeping together the Herd.

Satan, by contrast, is a god of inequality; in his word, knowledge exists for those who seek it, and some rise above others. This comports with not just hierarchy but esotericism as well as a Darwinian eugenicist view of human adaptation to nature.

A wise man once opined that the Abrahamic religions created Satan out of the ancient gods because they feared the state before their takeover:

Our gods became your Satan and Satan became our god.

This follows from the basic formulation of Nietzsche — a paraphrase, but shorter and therefore more effective than the original text — that holds that reality is relative to both the perceiver and to reality as a whole:

There are no truths, only interpretations.

Following the mythic imagination route, this suggests that what we think of as “god” is comprised of our minds meeting an understanding of the world and therefore, by being relative to its larger cause, brings forth a manifestation of the gods in our existence.

The modern takes on ancient texts call this “faith,” but it is really a process of discipline, or shaping our minds to be ready for the forms that exist beyond this world, and like Lovecraft’s ancient beasts, awakening them from their undead life.

It seems contrary to contemporary minds, but the path to this gateway begins with nihilism or the rejection of fixed methods of truth being mistaken for the truths themselves, which are both relative and holistic:

A nihilist declines to believe in the consensual hallucination that there is an absolute, universal, and objective shared space of facts, morals, values, truths, and communications.

Nihilist spiritualists may be the only honest spiritualists because they do not believe in a god for everyone nor in truths for everyone. Instead, they see the divine force as a natural force, revealing itself to those who seek it with discipline.

In addition, they recognize — as the Calvinists do — that we are all born to different fates. Some are born to be peasants, some kings; the rest exist on a spectrum of ability, with the best of them able to see farther into the divine.

Ironically this makes Luciferians better believers than Christians, since instead of demanding that the world fit a rigid calcified order so that it can avoid conflict, we accept that God is based in conflict and tension leading to evolution, for He is a God of War:

That depends on how you see Utopia. In a sense, an ideal society would be a static society, and any such society is an evolutionary dead end. Happiness is a byproduct of function, purpose, and conflict; those who seek happiness for itself seek victory without war.
— William S Burroughs

In this cosmos, what is Lucifer? He is like God another conceptualization of a manifestation, a term we use because we must, since language requires contraction (despite the loss of meaning inherent in that process). Painful knowledge through conflict is the essence of Lucifer.

On a broader scale, we can see why the Christians divide the divine into Father, Son, and (W)Hol(l)y Ghost, since if God is life and Satan is death, the Holy Spirit is the force that keeps these two necessary relative opposites working on a spectrum of function.

The Son on the other hand is the spark of the divine in humanity, there to show us that our connection to the ancient gods requires sacrifice — including but not limited to discipline — for us to give up our connection to the material in order to see the eternal.

Like their political counterparts, the Revolutions in religion removed God from His position as a goal and a method of understanding, and turned him into a system of Control in the guise of liberation. Satan delivers us from freedom and returns us to the real and mythical.

Caught in the Slave Arc

Posted: December 16th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Nihilism | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Caught in the Slave Arc

Slavery is a mental condition that occurs when what you need to do to be free is obstructed by your fear of doing it, or fear of recognizing what it is that you have to do. Until you clear the blockage, you remain in a mental loop, unable to act, and therefore, neutralized.

Until you reprogram your mind to be realistic and to aim toward what it wants instead of scapegoating evils and holding talismans against them, you will be caught in the slave arc: false hopes creating unrealistic actions that fail, restarting the slave cycle.

The best way to enslave people is to erect a symbol they must affirm regularly. This filters out anyone honest who might notice things; instead you get people for whom every action in life is a transaction, in this case obedience for you doing favors for them.

This symbol could be a golden calf, a statue of Ba’al, a flag, a dictator, an altar, or an infectious notion like universal humanist morality. That notion holds that morality is the same because all of us are the same, therefore only individuals matter.

In contrast, all of the best people in history have believed in the transcendental, meaning something bigger than themselves or others. Some quest for learning, some for divinity, and others simply to make stuff work.

The small minds focus on people. They want to talk about the poor, minorities, disabled, retarded, LGBT+, women, midgets, and insane because these are proxies for themselves. They are really saying that they want to avoid the transcendental by focusing on people instead.

If you dig deeper, you find the ancestor of narcissism, solipsism. They want to believe that the world is like them, therefore they project their fears onto others and use concern for the plight of those others to justify and manipulate.

Looking critically at humanity, it seems that most of us are solipsists, and these operate by rationalization, or finding some external target to use as an argument for their internal desires. Help the poor, so that we do not have to focus on civilization itself, for example.

Compassion, altruism, sympathy, and tolerance all mask the manipulation of the solipsists. They want to cheat on the rules they set up for others because the purpose of those rules is to defend the solipsist, not help anyone.

Consider the case of Dr Dale Cavaness:

To his patients in the Little Egypt area of southern Illinois, Dr. John Dale Cavaness was an old-school healer who still made house calls, often waived fees for those unable to pay, and was willing to spend as much time with them as they needed, despite his busy practice.

“Dr. Dale, as he was affectionately called, was akin to Mother Teresa to his patients and friends,” according to the summary of his case in the acclaimed Crime Classification Manual. “Cavaness’s family and closest office workers, however, knew he had another, darker side.”

By the mid-1970s, Cavaness was living a double life of abusing his family while enriching himself through his lucrative medical practice and earning the admiration and accolades of the people of the Little Egypt area.

This man later killed two of his sons for the insurance money, being disappointed in them for following him into alcoholism and drug use. While we might categorize him as a typical Boomer parent, he most likely is just slightly more solipsistic than the average human.

He used altruism for the poor to manipulate an audience so thoroughly that he got away with the murder of one son, a DUI crash that killed two people, and extensive financial fraud over several decades.

We call them narcissists, but more likely people like this — sociopaths — are merely solipsists who have learned to manipulate others in the same way that the solipsists manipulate themselves. This is why at some point they, too, are betrayed by their own methods.

A successful criminal after all is not only one who never gets caught, but one who is never even suspected. The best murders involve people who just disappear and no one knows when, how, or why. No body or timeline means no investigation and no suspects.

Two neighborhoods over from mine lived a guy that only the smartest guy in our neighborhood thought was a murderer. One year over Christmas while he was fishing in the Gulf his wife left him; her car, wallet, keys, clothes, and money all disappeared with her.

He could have easily docked his boat somewhere obscure, taken a motorbike out of the hold, and driven home to drug her, put her in her car with all her belongings, and drive her into one of the bayous where no one will find her for another thirty years.

But only this one guy thought that, and he thought it because this guy stiffed him once on something small, like lunch or fishing bait. Why would you rip someone off for almost no real gain? If you got excited by feeling like you won one against the world.

This meant to the smartest guy in the neighborhood that the suspected killer was in fact a solipsist who saw only what he wanted, and the forces of reality that tried to impede it. The man made an enemy of the transcendental and the whole of reality that it references.

Whether we call them sociopaths, narcissists, psychopaths, borderline personality disorder, or simply antisocial, these people have the same mentality: my way against the world, and everyone else like me can be manipulated, so I will do it and get what I want at their expense.

Although these people seem to be winning at life, they are in fact slaves because they are tied to their weird desires that they cannot meet except through risky and often pointless crime. The solipsist exists in a prison of himself.

Similarly, those who are manipulated by them are slaves. In order to believe that everything is going fine — this is the bourgeois or city-dweller mentality — they have to let themselves be manipulated, and will simply similarly manipulate others to get what they want.

All of these people exist in the slave arc. Rather than confront reality, they handle it psychologically through the filter of themselves. This keeps them in an endless cycle of lying to, manipulating, conning, and rationalizing to each other.

If nothing else, this pathology creates tedium and a form of mental slavery. They exhaust themselves in a world where nothing is real, therefore they can find no personal truth, so they look to external influences to fill the void, which always fails over time.

All forms of egotism fall under this heading. Whether the sugary altruism of egalitarianism or the saccharine soothing groupthink of the Church, or even the self-centered individualism of Ayn Rand or the Church of Satan, the solipsistic pathology betrays its hosts.

How do you think we ended up with this wasteland of so many empty people, wandering about looking for a purpose, yet rejecting any real purpose they encounter?

Lucifer, the bringer of Light, might be seen as the original reductionist and realist. Like Prometheus, he brings wisdom at great pain, inverting the Garden of Eden myth; instead of being damned for wisdom because of our egotism, we free ourselves from egotism through wisdom.

And like all things in this world of tradeoffs and risk-reward curves, this represents a balance: wisdom is not found without pain, but that pain is less than the pain of remaining in the slave arc with the rest of the hominids (often called “nids” or “nidders”).

By his disobedience to God, Satan — a proxy for Lucifer, Prometheus, and all of the pagan gods — acquires mastery of himself in Hell. It is better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven because Heaven is part of the good/evil dichotomy that rules those caught in the slave arc.

Outside the slave arc, “evil” refers to all things which are not under Control by the moral system of individualism and the collective consensus that enforces it. The slaves fear anyone who is not bound by the rules of a society based on the individual.

A transcendental thinker, for example, is prone to means-over-ends thinking; he makes tradeoffs in order to get the results he desires. If he has to flood a city to save the ancient woods, the gods, or the civilization, he does it, knowing those deaths were inevitable.

All good thinkers operate this way. The moral system, which is really solipsism in disguise, operates by means-over-ends thinking, such as the idea that it is never acceptable to flood a city no matter what the cost. A leader has to be willing to make tradeoffs.

A leader must also be willing to compare risk and reward instead of standing on absolutes. For example, decriminalizing drugs means more will die; keeping drugs illegal means many will die. The question is which gets closer to a better vision of society for those worth keeping.

An ends-over-means thinker is inherently hierarchical; the moralists oppose this because they are projecting themselves, therefore to them individual human lives are all important and should be given more emphasis than whatever the goal or reality of the situation is.

Prometheus brought to humankind the knowledge of fire, bringing us out of the caves and into the light. With this came pain, not just for Prometheus but for us, because now we had to figure out how to regulate ourselves like nature once regulated us.

Disobedience, in the eyes of any one who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion. — Oscar Wilde

Lucifer provides disobedience even to disobedience. He debunks all that exists by bringing light like Prometheus and in doing, revealing what happens in the shadows of the Platonic Cave humans create by manipulating each other with mutual solipsism.

This debunks even individualism. Lucifer says that no false idols can stand before what is real, which means that even the self fails when it becomes a golden calf or portrait of Stalin. The transcendental whole is the only reality.

Individualists do not understand concepts that apply more broadly than the individual. The anarchists and libertarians, communists and Christians, even the oligarchs and philanthropists agree that the individual is most important and comes before all else.

Consequently, individualists find themselves outraged that a concept they should have understood, pluralism, might not go as they intended. Pluralism means “agree to disagree,” or that instead of a culture, we accept many viewpoints as simultaneously true.

When your society has a culture, it can have a right way of doing things and a goal. With pluralism, you say that there can be no goal higher than the individual, thus each person gets their own culture and a mutual non-aggression pact is created to tolerate all of them.

This system has a Satan of course. Anyone who suggests that there is a transcendental reality that is more important than our individual lifestyles becomes the Hitler to this society. But everyone else leaves each other alone and shares nothing with each other instead.

At first blush, this seems like the ideal system, if you are halfway bright. We each leave everyone else alone; everyone gets to do what they want. The only sin is telling someone they are wrong. What could be bad about this?

No anarchic system of this nature can pick a direction, therefore it can have no values. People do not work together toward anything except what they are paid to do. There is no culture and therefore no right way to interact.

You hear a lot of complaining about “capitalism” these days, but mostly what people are saying is that because we abolished culture with pluralism, there is no higher value these days that your career, your money, and your own celebrity value. That is anarchy and pluralism.

Conservatives, perhaps the biggest morons on Planet Earth, want to believe in pluralism because they have adopted a myth of “rugged individualism” or anarchy with guns, Jesus/Israel, and free markets. Yet they do not understand it.

For example, pluralism says that you do not have one religion per society; instead you accept all of them, which means that you get public displays of Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Judaism, and yes, even script kiddie “Satanism”:

Sherman says the exhibit has drawn widespread “outrage and disgust” among Iowans, “but few people think there is much that can be legally done about it because of free speech and freedom of religion.”

“However,” he adds, “I disagree.”

He points to the preamble to the Iowa Constitution, which says, “WE THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF IOWA, grateful to the Supreme Being for the blessings hitherto enjoyed, and feeling our dependence on Him for a continuation of those blessings, do ordain and establish a free and independent government, by the name of the State of Iowa… .”

He wants to talk about how Jesus was the founding of this nation, but forgets that back in 1866, we adopted pluralism with the first Civil Rights Act. You cannot have a national culture anymore, nor a national religion — the individual is more important — so you get all religions.

That means that Satan stands next to Jesus in the Capitol, just like Christians, Jews, and Muslims live in the same neighborhoods. This means that the Supreme Being was there to found the state, but now, it runs on worship of the human individual.

Script kiddie Satanism of the Anton LaVey type is designed, like Ayn Rand and Fred Nietzsche on which it is based, to deny the morality of the herd by asserting the preeminence of the individual. The only problem with that is that herd morality arises from individualism.

At its core, LaVeyian Satanism is no different than Christianity or libertarianism. It asserts that the individual comes first, but this requires a Devil’s Bargain because in order to lure others into this scheme, they too must be given the right to be equal.

The problem with that is that people are not equal; hierarchy is natural because it is logical. Some know more than others and are better fit to make decisions than others, and if you want to succeed, you give them the power and have them hold the wealth.

Egalitarianism on the other hand distributes the power and wealth to the point where no one can act decisively anymore, so you get a sluggard Carter-style economy and a hesitant, neurotic Weimar-style society where no one can do anything but emulate what succeeded before.

Apparently, the neurotics did not understand that egalitarianism arises from individualism, nor that pluralism means equal tolerance of all religions, and so some clown decided to stunt for popularity points with a religious hate crime against Satanism:

Founded in 2013, the Salem, Massachusetts-based Satanic Temple doesn’t believe in Satan but describes itself as a “non-theistic religious organization” that advocates for secularism. It is separate from the Church of Satan, which was founded in the 1960s.

The display caught Cassidy’s attention earlier this week. On Tuesday, he reposted a message on X, formerly known as Twitter, that included two photos — one of a Thomas Jefferson statue being removed from an unspecified location, and one of the Satanic Temple display.

“We have reached the point where our Capitols are removing Jefferson while monuments to Satan are erected,” the message read.

Very few of us believe in “hate crimes,” or even crimes, since those are means-over-ends. If you kill someone, the question is not the method (killing) but the ends, namely who you killed and whether this improved things. Not all killings are bad.

We can rephrase the famous “trolley problem” this way: a branch in the train track leads to two different futures, one better than the other. If you pull the lever and the train goes toward a better future, does it matter who was on the track?

Our critics will say that this path leads to Nazi, Fascist, and Communist levels of totalitarianism; we rebut this by saying that it is the method of nature and only logical. Democracy has avoided it, but democracy can no longer make decisions and is failing.

In nature, “hate crimes” are the logical result of mixing two different groups, whether religious, ethnic, cultural, racial, or all of the above as Samuel Huntington argues forms group identity in his The Clash of Civilizations.

However, if our society is serious about pluralism, it will treat this assault on a Satanic display the same way it would handle the situation if someone smashed a menorah, desecrated a Black church, put pork on a mosque, or wrote FAG on a gay club.

Naturally we know that it will not; egalitarianism operates by making things equal, which requires taking from the successful/productive to give to the unsuccessful/unproductive, which means that it always favors the underdog and punishes positive results. It is a moronic idea.

The con man who knocked down the statue — he is another Dan Crenshaw, a hard-posturing Christian libertarian veteran who will turn into a Swamp Creature the minute he crosses the threshold of DC — had a good point about the dethroned Jefferson and Confederate statues.

Pluralism says they stay up; egalitarianism say they must come down because they offend the underdog. Similarly pluralism says that both Zionists and pro-Hamas BLM/Antifa types get speech rights, but egalitarianism says punish Israel for succeeding where Palestinians did not.

Egalitarianism, like all forms of pacifism, means that we drop our goals and make avoiding conflict our goal, which requires equal tolerance of everything, especially the insane, stupid, and unhealthy. This is why it produces diseased and incompetent societies.

In the egalitarian ideal, we have anarchy so that all of us can do our little sins, society will pay for it through externalized costs, and we have some kind of administrative-bureaucratic state to serve as babysitter and custodian.

That ideal however requires that one perform acts of obedience to egalitarianism, and enslaves us mentally by prohibiting any methods other than those accepted by the egalitarians. To confine yourself as a slave in Plato’s cave, accept this Devil’s Bargain.

A Luciferian instead embraces conflict because it allows us to achieve our ends by choosing the best methods. In nature, everything is tolerated but nothing is supported, and whatever endures becomes the new standard.

Fear of that situation — it is not individualistic, therefore the solipsism cannot exist in it — causes people to embrace solipsism as a defensive weapon against reality. Not surprisingly, our civilization has become not just unrealistic but opposed to realism entirely.

Prometheus brought us light, and similarly, realism brings us clarity. It is only feared by those who fear that they will not measure up. That fear enslaves them and blinds them to reality, which in turn binds them to inevitable future failure.

In Pursuit of Evil

Posted: October 24th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: News | Tags: , , | Comments Off on In Pursuit of Evil

The media offers simple illusions for the techno-proles, giving them a hope that the situation is handled and they can go back to moral and intellectual sleep, while carefully distracting from the ongoing collapse of civilization and extinction of humanity.

To do this successfully, one must play to the sense of self-pity of the audience. Bored, unfulfilled, directionless, lazy, demoralized, and atomized, they are looking for scapegoats, and to fit into an egalitarian society, they style themselves as victims.

They have little choice, of course. They either admit that like most of humanity, most of which is third world status, they are doing something wrong, or find someone to blame. By styling themselves as victims, they can feel better about their confused minds and blame others.

In an egalitarian civilization, the weak take from the strong, so those who want to succeed learn early on to identify with victims. Over time this becomes an easy answer for everything and so they bond with others in alienation and scapegoating.

The media preaches to this mentality because the media must sell products. To sell a product, you recast what people already believe as something exotic and tantalizing, knowing that they will lap it up in order to enjoy confirmation of their bias.

Through this process we get rambling denunciations of the O9A:

O9A’s true size is unknown and its beliefs vary widely, but a common goal is to join a gang, terrorist plot, police force, or military unit, then stir as much chaos as possible to accelerate the fall of western civilization.

Because of its cell structure and the ability for young men to radicalize themselves online, it is difficult to know who is for real and who is pretending…But in recent years, O9A materials have been found in the search history and homes of men in North America and Western Europe who were charged with terror offenses.

Never forget, normies: we aspire to evil. Good, as defined by you people, consists of denying reality and especially Darwinism, simply so that the group can have a false sense of unity and be easily controlled through symbols.

This control does not have one controller… it has as many as there are voters. People, in an attempt to avoid being seen for their failures, campaign against competence and strength, identifying as victims and blaming whoever is stronger, richer, smarter, or more competent.

Our human herd is self-manipulating and self-deluding. To manipulate others they play the victim while pursuing their own self-interest, fooling the credulous, and then convince others to join them in misery so they can talk about how bad life is and how good Utopia will be.

It is a mistake to read this as ideology. It is social compensation behavior, and it is how every human society so far has found itself chasing non-problems through government, eventually bankrupting itself, genetically destroying itself, and ending up a third world grey person wasteland.

We stand against this process. We embrace Darwinism, reject “good” and “evil” as anything but tokens of manipulation, and stand for hard consequentialist realism that measures our actions by their results. If you kill billions for a better world, that is not to be feared.

We reject your society of meritocracy, workaholism, consumerism, codependent relationships, television-watching, and endless pity. We embrace strength and reject weakness; the strong should take from the weak, and the best must oppress the rest.

Your option, the rest oppressing the best, leads to incompetence, weakness, and an absolute lack of meaning or purpose to life. We reject this. We reject your humanism, the idea that everyone is important, and most of all the Big Lie, “equality.”

We deny Utopia. Life is as it has always been. We either accept this and work with it or become something worse than evil, reality-deniers who leave collateral damage in their wake and eventually grind society and our species down into hominid-level selfish bloated zombies.

We aspire to ultimate evil. We wish to be free from the judgment of others and to make our peace with nature, eternity, reality, and the ancient gods. We cast aside your Abrahamic belief in pity and control, embrace strength, and open our arms to the infinite darkness.

Occult Metal

Posted: October 15th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Culture | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Occult Metal

The term “occult” refers to what is hidden, and like “esoteric” implies that which rests in plain sight awaiting our ability to understand it. Nothing hid gravity, electricity, magnetism, and nuclear fusion from us, but it took us centuries to understand what we saw.

In the same way, spiritual truths remain hidden. To those who understand the nature of Godhead, the unity of Satan and God makes perfect sense, and the moralistic personal deity of the Abrahamic religions falls like members of Hamas gunned down on the border.

Darwinism similarly hides in plain sight. To those who can think it through, it represents a perfected system that improves quality and reduces costs much like capitalism. It involves predation and culling of the weak, so the herd fears it.

In permanent agricultural civilization, understanding of reality — as a nihilist I reject universal “truth” — remains sequestered as the ultimate taboo. Civilizations do not want reality; they want compromise, pacifism, and pluralism so everyone “gets along together.”

To peer under the mile-wide inch-deep surface of human existence is to encounter occult notions. Some metal bands do this, and we celebrate them for their honesty and perception, even while knowing that only natural aristocrats have any interest in such things.


This Texas band combines rabid anti-Christianity and dogmatic realism with an interest in the possibilities beyond the visible. It also creates one of the most implacable visions of a world where conflict, not peace, is the foundation, and ruthless extermination of the weak leads to a great clarity and competence.


One of the few bands to encode occult ideas without mentioning them constantly by name and symbol, Sacramentum writes allegorical lyrics that match music which is simultaneously reductive and elegantly complex, using melody to bring out the potential in life hidden beneath the paranoid antirealism of the Crowd.


Creating architectures out of simple melodies that expand into odd harmonies which touch the dissonant and then return to a savage simplicity, Gorgoroth created metal to mirror the patterns and cycles of nature while affirming the importance of the Left Hand Path.


Merging Buddhist mysticism with LaVeyian Satanism, Beherit explored the ancient rites and rituals of past civilizations through music, bringing forth the idea of a world kept in balance only by necessary evil consuming an excess of good.


This band got in trouble for admonishing others in the scene for their “obviously Jewish behavior” and wrote a song about race war, but the majority of their material seems designed to wake up an oversocialized, pacifistic, and neurotic bourgeois population to the world outside the confines of peer pressure, marketing, and compromise.


Emerging out of the Unabomber years, Infester created a type of atmospheric death metal which glorified in the decline of civilized behavior and looked toward the horrors of internal animalism as a clearer sight of what was real and important, mixing the pounding of percussive death metal with the unsettling ambient melancholy of black metal to come.


With an aggressive approach to guitar-driven black metal with whispering vocals describing a mostly lunar mythos of evil as the force against entropy in the universe, this US-based band made soundtracks to emerging darkness which consume the listener with an abandonment of conventional morality and notions of a personal god.


Outright motivated by a Nietzschean dislike of Christianity, this band helped with the founding of the death metal genre through a tremolo-driven, bass-intense style of gurgling and roaring metal that knitted together complex little symphonies of oppositional riffs in a style inspired by Celtic Frost that went even further in forming a new musical language.


While not explicitly occult, Slayer invoked themes from Milton and Crowley as a way of undermining the modern mythos of a consumer-driven individualistic society where people ignored history, myth, and legend. This band brought back the ancient feelings through ripping apart the fragile veil of illusion in which most people live.


Imaginative noctilucent epics of the rise of evil accompany lengthy riffs that aim for a seductive removal of daylight consciousness and the emergence of the beast within man, portraying a vast world-building impulse that combines magic, folklore, and occult evil to portray a world far removed from the commercial and symbolic cosmopolitan Potemkin metroplex of our era.


While this band focused more on condemning the Christian version of God and summoning instead an order where the ancient gods came forth to slaughter the unworthy, its thundering precision metal served mostly to cast aside the shackles of conventional morality and embrace a world in which humans could admit their naturalistic impulse to power and independence.


Working within the Hindu mythos, Rudra invokes the morality of the past which did not focus on good and evil so much as an attempt to make an order of the whole which perpetuated itself with strength. Their imaginative riff-working fits together into songs where the seemingly obvious falls away and unveils a labyrinth of ambiguity.

Killing Is Neither Bad Nor Good

Posted: October 11th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Nihilism | Tags: , , , | Comments Off on Killing Is Neither Bad Nor Good

Following up on a post from yesterday, what does it mean to be ends-over-means instead of means-over ends?

Let us take a simple example: killing. The difference between murder, self-defense, killing, war, and execution are a matter of semantics written into law and politics by the emotional needs of a tribe. Morality is cultural, and culture is genetic.

  • Means-over-Ends says that killing as a method is wrong and therefore it can never be done except to stop other killings; it needs to be able to kill in order to keep killing sacred even if it is normally a negative thing.
  • Ends-over-Means says that the morality of a killing depends on who is killed and if things get better afterwards; if you snuff an innocent, nothing improves, but if you kill a killer, retard, criminal, insane person, parasite, or idiot, life improves.

Naturally the herd fears the latter because this says that people have unequal value, which is definitely true whenever we all gather to do a task. Some are really good at it and valued, others are terrible, and most of us are in the middle somewhere.

One may not like the conclusion that ends-over-means is a superior way to think, but it does not like means-over-ends run into paradox. It does not demonize the method, only asks that the goal conform to a mission and produce better results in reality.

Most human beings cannot understand this distinction, which explains one solid reason why humanity ruling itself has never worked out. For now, let us let this thought hang in the air until its meaning reveals itself.

All In Satan

Posted: October 9th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Nihilism | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments Off on All In Satan

We need, at some point, to talk about morality. Morality means the rules that guide you for the sake of things other than yourself. Some like a morality based in the results of our actions, and others like a morality based in our intentions.

Intentions do not equal reality, however, and many of us hold that because of that disparity, a morality of intentions often leads to its opposite in reality. For example, rent control was meant to keep prices low, but instead created slums and new, more expensive luxury housing.

In another example, making narcotics illegal caused them to be valuable, which created an economy around them which soon eclipsed any enforcement efforts. Attempts to ban pornographic books have merely turned them into contraband and ensured their survival.

We can see other examples too. Making certain kinds of securities highly regulated caused the market to pursue new types that were not so easily restrained. Making religious dogma canon caused fragmentation in the church.

Thus we see how intention-based morality tends to invert itself. It tries to stop an effect as if it were a cause, but the cause remains, so the effect takes a new form in a type of psychological torment like the old game Whack-a-Mole.

Results-based morality tends to work as a filter. You reward the landlords who provide quality housing at low cost by granting them new privileges. You hire the people who are not on drugs. You socially promote the people who do not have pornographic books.

Even more, this tends toward ends-over-means, or the spirit of the law above the letter of the law. If a securities firm aims toward ethical trading, it becomes trusted and endures. If religion has a purpose, all sects eventually come together on a shared core belief.

In other words, in results-based morality we submit to reality instead of humanity. We look toward having a goal that joins us with reality in a sense of purpose and a recognition of our minimal status as animals adapting to our environment.

To a results-based moralist, only results-based morality is moral because it affects the lives of people, nature, and the fragile order that makes a civilization. Intentions do not matter because they do not directly influence people, but results sure do!

This means that to a results-based moralist, we do not need to like what we discover or think that other people will applaud it. It is what it is. Reality is bigger than us and we exist by its rules, not the other way around.

Luciferians branch off from mainstream religion because we believe in results-based morality and therefore, are not willing to assign humanity the highest position in reality. Our view is what was normal until the Abrahamic religions took over with their intentions-based morality.

In the pagan view, nature and the divine are parallel, if not of the same substance. They act the same way. Humans are a small part, and what matters is making those humans survive in physical reality and grow in spiritual and mental strength.

The individualism — me first above all else — of the intentions-based moralists on the other hand diverges from nature. It posits that the divine uses an entirely different ruleset, and as a result physical reality is less important than the feelings of meaning from religion.

At an extreme level, individuals in the grip of this pathology live only to die for the promise of Heaven after death. The Satanist says that what happens after life is much like life, so there is no great sorting into “good” and “evil,” only continued adaptation to a new realm.

For pagans, all things existed in parallel. Many seed would fall, some would germinate, and only some would survive, but if each seed was a parallel, they knew that some seeds would make it to full plants. This meant an order beyond the visible.

In their view, all things had a purpose, but not all things would survive. The best would carry on and, because they were parallels, would carry on the spirit and essence of whatever their type was. If you have some seeds sprout, you have plants in the future.

When read in the context of their original writings, most religions in fact embrace this order beneath reality that parallels reality:

The original scriptures of most religions are poetical and unsystematic. Theology, which generally takes the form of a reasoned commentary on the parables and aphorisms of the scriptures, tends to make its appearance at a later stage of religious history. The Bhagavad-Gita occupies an intermediate position between scripture and theology; for it combines the poetical qualities of the first with the clear-cut methodicalness of the second. The book may be described, writes Ananda K. Coomaraswamy in his admirable Hinduism and Buddhism, “as a compendium of the whole Vedic doctrine to be found in the earlier Vedas, Brahmanas and Upanishads, and being therefore the basis of all the later developments, it can be regarded as the focus of all Indian religion” is also one of the clearest and most comprehensive summaries of the Perennial Philosophy ever to have been made. Hence its enduring value, not only for Indians, but for all mankind.

At the core of the Perennial Philosophy we find four fundamental doctrines.

  1. The phenomenal world of matter and of individualized consciousness — the world of things and animals and men and even gods — is the manifestation of a Divine Ground within which all partial realities have their being, and apart from which they would be non-existent.
  2. Human beings are capable not merely of knowing about the Divine Ground by inference; they can also realize its existence by a direct intuition, superior to discursive reasoning. This immediate knowledge unites the knower with that which is known.
  3. Man possesses a double nature, a phenomenal ego and an eternal Self, which is the inner man, the spirit, the spark of divinity within the soul. It is possible for a man, if he so desires, to identify himself with the spirit and therefore with the Divine Ground, which is of the same or like nature with the spirit.
  4. Man’s life on earth has only one end and purpose: to identify himself with his eternal Self and so to come to unitive knowledge of the Divine Ground.

In Hinduism the first of these four doctrines is stated in the most categorical terms. The Divine Ground is Brahman, whose creative, sustaining and transforming aspects are manifested the Hindu trinity. A hierarchy of manifestations connects inanimate matter with man, gods, High Gods, and the undifferentiated Godhead beyond.

In Mahayana Buddhism the Divine Ground is called Mind or the Pure Light of the Void, the place of the High Gods is taken by the Dhyani-Buddhas.

Similar conceptions are perfectly compatible with Christianity and have in fact been entertained, explicitly or implicitly, by many Catholic and Protestant mystics, when formulating a philosophy to fit facts observed by super-rational intuition. Thus, for Eckhart and Ruysbroeck, there is an Abyss of Godhead underlying the Trinity, just as Brahman underlies Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

Our work at the O9A consists of identifying the patterns of reality because in those we can read the divine, at least as far as our puny hairy little human brains allow us. We are basically really smart mice with opposable thumbs.

Heaven in this view is not a place we go to for obedience to morality, but our origin and destination, an amoral place like nature where we will struggle to come to know ourselves just as we do here.

When one embarks on a Left Hand Path, it is to cast aside morality of “good” and “evil” — these are intentions and judgments — for a morality of results. We are concerned with what works, not what people think about it, especially most people because they are blockheads.

We try not to be “offended” by what we discover, because offense is self-reducing like nihilism, meaning that once one embarks down that path, it will eventually turn on itself through inversion and come to mean something quite plain.

For example, a nihilist who starts out believing in nothing will eventually find that he has beliefs, opinions, and most of all, preferences. He has theories about how the world works and wants to test them. There is meaning, but not universal meaning; it is his alone.

Our society is so screwed up and brain damaged that common sense based on observing reality is anathematized, and people instead live in a consensual symbolic hallucination based on tokens of good and bad in terms of intention and method.

If you wonder why your society cannot seem to make any complex decision well, is overrun with various freaks and geeks betraying high mutation load, pursues an anti-culture of base hedonism, and self-destructs in pursuit of ideology, this is what you are seeing.

Satanism is realism, and from its metaphysical counterpart, Luciferianism, comes the Perennial Philosophy in a new form: the divine acts like nature, so the divine also has natural selection, and rewards competence while punishing incompetence.

This contradicts what you are taught in the Abrahamic religions which are based on bourgeois commercial reality, or the idea that we all exist as individualists advancing ourselves and nothing else is important, least of all shared things like culture, nature, civilization, and the divine.

We may not like what we have come to know as true, but this does not matter because we are not in the realm of intentions. We are in the world of what works versus what does not. “Good” and “evil” are just method-based categories for those.

Like many things, this is an esoteric path. It starts out baffling but as it comes to make more sense, new doors open. Souls are unequal; this varies with the ability, focus, and gumption of the person involved.

Those who stand against divergence of the divine and the physical assert that their way is a “higher” morality, but there can be no goodness in that which produces bad results and makes people suffer like Abrahamic religions, egalitarianism, and consumerism.

Ultimately humanity breaks down into two groups: those who see the purpose of life in life itself, and those who do not and substitute for it with a world of human judgments, emotions, and importance.

We stand against history, which for centuries has been headed toward civilization collapse, and for a positive future in which humanity overcomes its neurosis, its pathology of peer pressure, and the ideologies and religions which lead us into self-destruction.

This requires confronting some notions which are very taboo now, but were not so in saner times.

You will probably hear from many sources about how we are Nazis, jihadists, eugenicists, elitists, racists, and other nasty terms. All this means is that we recognize that reality is inherently unequal for a reason.

If the divine and nature are parallel, inequality is holy and equality is an artificial human pretense, a vanity that like all vanities leads us to deny what is real and pursue what is symbolic but unreal, to the ruin of all.

To escape the artificial, we must first accept that reality is more important than human feelings, and next, start discovering how to see the purpose of life in life itself. If the divine and nature are parallel, then there is a purpose to everything.

That requires we accept a very ancient concept, destiny. This means that we are born unequal, and some rise above others as a result of their abilities and inclinations, and we all benefit from having their leadership and competence.

We are far beyond what the worst bogeymen of humanity like Hitler could envision. We want the law of Darwin to apply to our thoughts, actions, and bodies. We want to refine ourselves as nature refines itself to be excellent, not tolerant, fat, oblivious, and selfish.

Once you get beyond the boundaries of intentions-based morality, it becomes clear that humanity is in a death spiral and needs to change its thinking to escape. We are that change. Right now, it will scare you, but as time goes on, its wisdom will become clearer.

As usual, the O9A finds itself the focus on some rather nasty media commentary because this is a belief system and not a conventional “group” designed to sign up members, make money, and become codependent on raving and raging media headlines:

A post on another of Almeida’s alleged Instagram profiles showed him posing with ammunition strapped to his chest, in front of a black flag bearing the logo of the Order of Nine Angels (O9A), which prosecutors described as “a worldwide Satanist … group which embraces elements of neo-Nazism and white supremacy.”

When authorities searched Almeida’s home, they allegedly found hundreds of files containing child sex abuse material on four different devices — as well as books related to O9A and Satanism, according to court documents.

They also found a “blood covenant,” an O9A drawing of a hooded figure surrounded by the group’s symbols and smeared with what appears to be blood, the filings state.

Let us clarify this: the O9A is a religious movement, which is a type of philosophy, which means that we do not have “membership” per se nor do we approve of people who claim to be part of the O9A or participate in our rituals.

We understand the esoteric nature of the world which means that each person walks a different path, to some degree experiences a different reality, and can see more of what is real the more they learn, which is dependent also on character and intelligence.

Unlike exoteric belief systems which follow the bureaucratic model where everyone swears allegiance to some written text and are then presumed to be faceless NPCs carrying out the will of the organization behind the belief system, ours is an individual pursuit of clarity and sanity.

In that process, those of us familiar with the philosophy tend to advocate transgression, or violating the social constraints on certain methods in order to program us to be obedient cultists of modernity. Instead of “thou shalt not kill” you get “it depends.”

We recognize that life is a case-by-case basis. If someone kills an incompetent, parasite, idiot, retard, criminal, pervert, or promiscuous person, that represents higher genetic fitness for the group and therefore is a victory by the lights of both Darwinism and morality.

Some will take this to places that would not work for me. Involvement of children has no relevance to my quest, nor does any type of incel ideation. This is not because I disapprove of or are offended by these ideas, but because my quest does not involve them, at all.

As usual, the forces that be want to defame the O9A for saying out loud what the inner selves of the intelligent all affirm, which is that human life is not equally valuable nor are people equally competent. The strong must eat the weak so that all are stronger.

We suggest that the writers of this piece (a) acknowledge what an esoteric religious movement is vis-a-vis a membership-based political movement, (b) look into those black metal bands on the hats and shirts worn by this person, and (c) consider the difference between Satanism and Luciferianism.

As Luciferians, we believe in the bringing of light through pain. We oppose The Enlightenment™ as the usual false bourgeois version of a good thing, but seek understanding of the world and its works as a means of accumulating mental and physical power to shape the future.

We recognize that we live in a rotted world — falling just like Rome, Athens, and the Soviet Union — and its rules are designed to make us support it. They ban all methods except those that lead to approved thought, which results in egalitarian rules.

For example, a sane society would admit that some murders at least are not justified per se but are beneficial. If you kill a bad person, the goodness in the world increases, especially since they will not kill, molest, injure, or traumatize any good people from that point forward.

Our Sacrament of Culling addresses this issue. Removing less capable people from the world makes a next generation stronger. Unlike in human society, where the weak eat the strong, in nature the strong eat the weak, and this is the order to which we aspire.

Covenant of Lucifer

Posted: July 2nd, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Order of Nine Angles | Tags: , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Covenant of Lucifer

Covenant of Lucifer: the logo of the Dark Legions Archive.

When the dust settles, future archaeologists will probably come to view our time as the era of conflict between naturalistic and urban philosophies. The former group like common sense, intuition, and natural order, while the latter like peer pressure and pluralism.

Naturalistic philosophies are based on natural order, or the way in which things work in nature that makes perfect logical sense despite being frightening (at first) to humans. Naturalistic types like social order that rewards good behavior and punishes bad.

Urban philosophies, often called bourgeois, are instead based on banishing the frightening and replacing it with the rules of human socializing. That is, you accept everyone and punish only those who upset the herd. Pluralism of this sort enables commerce and city living.

To naturalists, the urbanites seem to be insane, since by being tolerant, they allow bad behavior to slowly creep in and then become the norm, at which point civilization collapses. City people know little more than their jobs and social group, so they are oblivious to this risk.

Even more, cities breed people who are compliant and insensate to anything beyond their individualistic pursuits. As long as they have their jobs and stores, they are content, and they want no culture or natural order to restrain them from their vices and excesses.

Judeo-Christianity and the Abrahamic religions represent the farthest extend of the bourgeois urbanist philosophy. It essentially advocates mutual individualism, where each person does whatever they want as long as they tolerate others doing the same, and society funds these pursuits.

The bourgeois mentality involves means-over-ends philosophy based in following rules and procedures. As long as what they are doing fits within the law and they pay taxes, who cares why they do what they do, or what its long-term consequences are?

Jews seem to provoke lots of nasty behavior, so it makes sense to debunk them: they are merely mixed-race people selected for IQ by a few religious edicts. Comprised of Italian women and Asian men who later incorporated North African through Arab relations, they are the ultimate mutts.

Their religion, cobbled together from the ideas of Greece and Babylon with the controversial parts taken over, is based in moralism, or intolerance for those who are not individualists. Judaism is compensation for the crisis of mixing races, attempting to fix a confused situation.

The bad reactions to Jews generally come about because diversity fails in all forms, and Jews as a high-IQ group shaped by commerce are competent diversity, which makes them a threat. Much stupid murder and violence came about through the resentment thus engendered.

History tells us that the Jews arose at the intersection of trade routes between Europe, Asia, and Africa and their genetics reflect this. So does their culture, which emphasizes intelligence and moralism, making them a formidable competitor.

Birthed of commerce, Judaism as a religion, culture, and ethnic group emphasizes commercial morality. That is, you endorse individualism so that people buy your stuff and to baffle the herd with rules that make it easy to circumnavigate them. All individualists do this.

In this sense, Judaism is the ultimate expression of the bourgeois religion, but Christianity translated Judaism into a more idealistic and less racially-centered philosophy. For this reason, it infected the world because it was an easy answer for keeping the proles in line.

Bourgeois morality, because it is based in individualism, emphasizes the “Golden Rule”: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This allows mutual individualism and avoids interrupting commerce and socializing with questions of what is right as a forward-looking goal.

Instead it is defensive. Religions of this nature consist of rules, since they are means-over-ends and not ends-over-means philosophies geared toward the why and long term, most of which focus on protecting the individualism of others.

The rabid surfacing of Judeo-Christianity — dislike of homosexuals, personal relationship with God, and a raving egalitarianism that finds abortion appalling but sees the poor as simply lesser people — exists merely to conceal its core, which is a me-first philosophy based on narcissism.

Most likely this transition came about because of a great cataclysm long ago described by Plato when people forgot about transcendent forward goals and instead focused on pluralism so that society could maintain minimum function. Naturalism carries forth the search for the transcendent.

Christianity, by its nature of dividing the world into Heaven-like purity and Earth-like impurity, does not embrace the transcendent but in fact rejects it. All bourgeois philosophies do this: they ban certain methods that are feared in order to induce obedience in the rest.

This went farthest with Political Correctness, which admitted that it wanted to ban certain words and ideas so that people would choose from what remained, forcing them into a mentality compatible with egalitarianism and therefore, programming their minds for control.

Numerous people have tried to reprogram individualism into something better. American rugged individualism emphasized self-sufficiency; Bill and Ted demanded we be “excellent” to each other, not just equal; Kant suggested we act as if our actions became “universal maxim.”

These differ from the Golden Rule in that they are not individualistic. Excellence means more than treating people fairly, but making the whole of society excellent. Universal maxim refers to how the world works, not merely an interaction between people.

For example, under the Judeo-Christian view, you tolerate criminals in the hope that their equal souls someday get their act together. In the Kantian view, you remove threats; in the Bill and Ted view, criminals conflict with excellence and presumably would be removed.

Naturalists would say however that this needs to go even further. In order to maintain excellence and competent universal maxim, order is needed, and order must defy individualism: some humans are good and useful, where others are malevolent, cowardly, subversive, or incompetent.

Luciferians and Satanists add naturalist morality back into the Christian “be nice to everyone” and the Bill, Ted, and Kant “act for excellence as a universal maxim,” bringing in the ancient rule known as the Lex Talionis, or the Covenant of Lucifer:

talion, Latin lex talionis, principle developed in early Babylonian law and present in both biblical and early Roman law that criminals should receive as punishment precisely those injuries and damages they had inflicted upon their victims. Many early societies applied this “eye-for-an-eye” principle literally.

In ancient Palestine, injury and bodily mutilation, as well as theft, were considered private wrongs. As such, the matter was settled not by the state but between the person who inflicted the injury and the one injured, an attitude that also prevailed in early Rome. Talion was the ultimate satisfaction a plaintiff might demand but was not mandatory; the injured person could obtain satisfaction with money if he wished.

On the principle that two different persons could not have exactly the same bodily members, the Palestinian sages enacted a law by which the injured party could not demand an eye from the person who caused the loss of his eye but could demand the value of his eye. This led to the abolition of talion in Palestine. By the 5th century bc in Rome, fines known as delicts had begun to replace talion in many instances, though the concept of talion did reemerge in medieval Germany and in some areas of Scandinavia in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The ancient Arabs in Palestine, who are partial ancestors of the Jews of today (along with minority Berber, Han Chinese, and Italian), changed the law from punishing the bad to fining the bad, at which point bad became accepted as a form of good, so long as the tax and remuneration was paid.

As the historical view shows us, times of greater sanity like the medieval era showed a return of the Law of Talion. It turns out that tolerating the bad means that they keep doing bad, and like Hillary Clinton, you may rarely if ever catch them red-handed.

Read most properly, the Law of Talion states a need to remove those who are bad or so incompetent that they cause injury. This law was probably itself a degraded remnant of the ancient Indo-European idea that criminals, incompetents, retards, and the insane were killed to keep population health.

In this way, the ancient rule united morality and eugenics in a realistic system that opposed the universal tolerance based in individualism of the bourgeois urbanites. Instead of keeping the bad around, the ancient world simply removed them.

Ironically this produced the closest humanity has come to equality of ability and therefore, approximate equality of outcome. When you remove the incompetents and criminals, everyone else has roughly the same abilities and therefore is able to succeed. You have no underclass of ineptitude.

All modern systems represent an attempt to make the urbanist rule work, where those who think clearly want the naturalistic one. Like all figures of the occult, Satan represents a Promethean who brings an unpopular truth to a humanity in narcissistic denial.

The Covenant of Lucifer enables us to understand the infinite wisdom of Darwinism. Try everything; keep what works. The creatures that adapt and sustain themselves are functional, but those that are dependent on the cities are not, including the incompetent, bad, insane, and so forth.

The O9A recognizes the need for preemptive Law of Talion through culling purges of the bad and incompetent (these terms are roughly conflatable, since the incompetent create bad results, and the bad promote incompetence so they can hide their bad deeds).

The Darwinistic aspects come from the recognition that with permanent civilization humanity needs a replacement for natural selection. About a fifth of every generation will be born bad, whether from mutation or low character of the parents, and they must be sent away or otherwise removed.

When understood properly, the Lex Talionis is not about revenge, but about raising the cost of bad behavior. It is intolerance in its purest form: those who work toward our shared goal are good, where those who thwart our goal, whether intentionally or not, are an enemy.

It answers the question of “Might is Right” versus “everyone is a precious snowflake” by saying that order and function are right. Whatever increases our function as individuals and civilization is good, and that which impedes it must be removed.

Naturalists see nature as pure function and therefore, find transcendental beauty in function and an equivalent to evil in dysfunction. Whether this is sweeping the streets or organizing civilization toward greatness, this naturalism promotes the strong and smashes the weak.

To us, removing the weak is a good thing; it removes impediments to the good and allows it to become more good, just like removing everyone under 115 IQ points means that the remaining people are roughly similar in intelligence and able to cooperate more fully.

City people advocate mutual tolerance. This makes sense to those who live in fear. However, mutual tolerance means accepting bad elements that have not been described by law, and those eventually take over, which is why all great civilizations so far have collapsed into third world level ruins.
