Another Journalist Misunderstands The O9A

°°°°°°°°°

One of the investigative journalists who earlier this year wrote about the neo-nazi group AtomWaffen Division {1} has revealed – through messages posted on “Twitter” – what appears to be a basic lack of understanding of the O9A despite having claimed that he has studied the O9A for quite some time. His earlier “tweets” about a possible connection between AtomWaffen Division (AWD) and the O9A may well have led to journalist Kelly Weill publishing an article in The Daily Beast about links between AWD and the O9A.

The journalist in question is Jake Hanrahan who, in his latest tweets about the O9A, referenced an article on a website and which website states that it represents an O9A nexion.

In those “tweets” Hanrahan appears to assume that what is written on the website in regard to Mr Myatt is some sort of “official statement” by the O9A whereas – as Anton Long and many others have stated time and time again – no one person, no one O9A nexion, no collocations of O9A nexions, can ever speak or write “on behalf of the O9A” since the fundamental O9A principle of the authority of individual judgment means that the O9A does not have, never has had, and never will have an “official policy” about anything, and never has, and never will make “official statements” about anything. {2}

All any person or group associating themselves with the sub-culture that is the O9A {3} can do is present their personal opinion and/or their personal interpretation of matters O9A and otherwise.

Hanrahan thus seems to repeat the error made by the likes of Massimo Introvigne which is the fallacy of Illicit Transference {4}.

That journalists, academics, and others – in respect of the O9A – continue to commit the fallacy of Illicit Transference by ignoring one of the fundamental principles of the esoteric philosophy of the O9A is proof of just how limited their research into the O9A is, has been, and continues to be.

In regard to how people associating themselves with the O9A regard Mr David Myatt, journalists, academics, and others should read the book A Modern Mysterium {5} and the article Decoding The Life Of Myatt {6}. They will find a diversity of opinion, which diversity is in accord with the O9A principle of the authority of individual judgment.

Another Academic Misrepresentation

Posted: April 24th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: Howard Stanton Levey, Inner ONA, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, Satanic Polemics, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Another Academic Misrepresentation

°°°°°°°

A 2017 essay by Della E. Campion of the University of Washington – who has written various essays about modern esotericism and modern Satanism – deals with the Order of Nine Angles document titled The Culling Texts, containing as that document does the five (mostly vintage) texts (i) Concerning Culling as Art, (ii) A Gift for the Prince – A Guide to Human Sacrifice, (ii) Victims – A Sinister Exposé, (iii) Culling – A Guide to Sacrifice II, (iv) Guidelines for the Testing of Opfers, (v) Satanism, Sacrifice, and Crime – The Satanic Truth.

There are serious flaws with the essay and which flaws undermine the argument and conclusions of Campion.

The article by Ms Scott enumerates these five serious flaws and, by referencing O9A primary sources, deals with each in detail.

Classifying Order Of Nine Angles Texts

Classifying O9A Texts
(pdf)

Since the early 1980s, beginning with the Black Book of Satan, the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) has published and circulated thousands of texts; so many in fact that one academic wrote:

               “the ONA has produced more material on both the practical and theoretical aspects of magic, as well as more ideological texts on Satanism and the Left-Hand Path in general, than larger groups such as the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set has produced in combination [which] makes the ONA an important player in the theoretical discussion of what the Left-Hand Path and Satanism is and should be according to the practitioners.” {1}

Given (i) the sheer volume of O9A texts, (ii) the growing interest in the O9A both academically and otherwise, and (iii) the profusion of recent (post-2011) texts dealing with aspects of O9A esotericism such as links to Hellenic hermeticism and why the O9A represents a ‘sinister-numinous’ and modern pagan tradition, it seems apposite to place now familiar O9A texts into their historical and esoteric context.

Corpus Secuntra, Telos

°°°°°°°

A recent book by the well-established Italian Order of Nine Angles nexion Secuntra is, to date, the most comprehensive public account of O9A esotericism and praxis by a group of O9A practitioners, with the chapters dealing with such O9A topics as the Sinister Tarot, Baphomet (Dark Goddess), physical training, the Star Game, and Mythos.

That this Italian nexion “has used and will continue to use […] dangerous and extreme forms of Traditional Satanism and National Socialism/Fascism” makes the book both more interesting and relevant, and decidedly heretical both exoterically and esoterically.

A unique feature – vis-a-vis works by O9A practitioners – is that the book is available in both English and Italian.

The book is highly recommended as it does indeed reveal “an ONA/O9A Traditional Nexion in action, including part of its ceremonies, practices, training, and tactics, as undertaken in the real world [and] the living and growing nature of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) as a totality of Nexions and individuals operating clandestinely and in secret, bound by the same ethos, the same culture, and the same Logos, as enshrined in the Code of Kindred Honour.”
