The Lie About The O9A And Sexual Abuse

°°°°°°°°°

The Lie About The O9A And Sexual Abuse

As explained many times in the past two years, {1} the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) does not and never has called for or promoted the commission of sexual violence with this lie about sexual abuse now being at the centre of an on-going anti-fascist campaign to try to defame and to discredit the O9A.

This lie – like the lie of misogyny {2} – has been repeated for nearly three years by means of “social media”, by web-sites on the internet, by press releases, by anti-fascists meeting with journalists and politicians, and others – and in propagandistic biased so-called “reports” issued by the anti-fascist political advocacy group at the forefront of the smear campaign and which reports are full of errors and lies {3}. This lie of sexual abuse has been repeated so often by so many and by various means that many credulous or lazy people, including journalists, unwilling to do their own research into primary O9A texts, now believe the lie. A lie that has also been repeated in the mainstream Media who have uncritically quoted from those propagandistic biased “reports”.

The anti-fascist political advocacy group at the forefront of the smear campaign has British Members of Parliament – who believe their lies and propaganda – lobbying the Home Office to ban the O9A while anti-fascists continue to try to defame and to discredit the O9A by means of “social media”, by press releases to the mainstream Media, and by contacting journalists in Britain, Continental Europe, America and elsewhere all of who have never bothered to present the O9A side of the story.

In respect of the lie, the following was recently posted on the “Twitter” social media platform by the anti-fascist political advocacy group at the forefront of the smear campaign:

                  “Groups like the Order of Nine Angles (O9A) blend neo-nazi propaganda with calls to commit sexual violence as a means to spark societal collapse. Their reach is frightening. Their impact is increasingly clear. The UKHomeOffice must act to ban O9A now.”

The anti-fascist political advocacy group at the forefront of the smear campaign has never produced any evidence from primary O9A sources – written between 1976 and 2020 and authored, before 2011, by “Anton Long” or, after 2012, by his seven or so students – to substantiate the claim that O9A literature has called for or promoted sexual violence.

Instead, they rely on another lie: that around a dozen or so people who have been been convicted of sexual offences or who are alleged to have called for sexual violence are “members” of the O9A whereas the truth is (i) that the O9A – being an anarchistic-nihilistic {4} esoteric philosophy and not a group or organization – has no members, and never has had any members, and (i) that those people they name are and have been interested in the O9A, generally because they have either (i) misunderstood O9A esoteric philosophy based as it is on an individual years-long hermetic quest along the O9A Seven Fold Way, as explained in books such as the 1989 Naos text and in the 2019 text The Seofonfeald Paeth, or (ii) those people have gotten lost in the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus designed as that was to test, select, confuse, mislead and intrigue.

Having an interest in the O9A, being in possession of O9A literature, displaying the O9A sigil, claiming to be in contact with the O9A, and even calling one’s self O9A does not make a person a “member” of the O9A. Except, of course, in the minds of prejudiced, intolerant, anti-fascists and their supporters who, judging by their campaign of or their belief in lies and propaganda about the O9A, have a preconceived opinion about the O9A not based on reason or actual experience or on scholarly research; a bias, a partiality; an unreasoned dislike of, or hostility toward the O9A; an unreasoning objection to the O9A; or who have made a preliminary or anticipatory judgement about the O9A.

To instigate, to conduct, such a campaign of lies and propaganda designed to try to defame and to discredit a group, or organization, or person, or a religion, or a philosophy – esoteric, political or otherwise – and a belief by others in such lies, is, as history reveals, part of the nature of many human beings. But history also reveals that such campaigns – while they may be effective in the short term, of years, or decades – are, in terms of centuries and millennia, failures given that part of the nature of many other human beings is to question, to not be prejudiced or intolerant, to seek answers for themselves often by undertaking their own research.

Thus, even if in the present century anti-fascists and their supporters have thousands of people believing their lies and propaganda about the O9A, and even if they somehow succeed in having some fictional entity called “the O9A” banned by the government, it will in Aeonic terms make no difference to O9A esoteric philosophy and its Seven Fold Way, since it will still be taught in the manner of ancient hermeticism: from person to person, from teacher to pupil; as it has been so taught since the 1970s.

{2} {quote} According to Labour Member of Parliament Stephanie Peacock the O9A “promotes some of the world’s most hateful, misogynistic beliefs out there, targeting women with the worst forms of cruelty and violence.” However, a study of primary O9A texts – such as The Deofel Quartet, the pro-Lesbian novel Breaking The Silence Down and items such as the 2017 On The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos – reveals the exact opposite, as does the O9A praxis named The Rounwytha, which option is explained in the text The Seven Fold Way Of The Order Of Nine Angles: A Modern Practical Guide where men are the exception, women the rule. In addition, the O9A has always had Sapphic nexions.

The Apolitical Deofel Quartet

Posted: October 13th, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: Deofel Quartet, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Dialectic, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on The Apolitical Deofel Quartet

°°°°°°°°°

Those who have studied O9A esotericism in detail, and those who have an intuitive or artistic appreciation of the Sinister-Numinous aesthetic of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A), know that the O9A in essence is apolitical, regarding all political forms and all political ideologies as causal abstractions, some of which forms may be useful for a while as exeatic learning experiences – as Insight Rôles – for some individuals in the early years of their decades-long journey along the O9A Seven Fold Way. But all of which causal abstractions – from politics, to religions, to sociological and psychological theories and posited archetypes – are surpassed, left behind, understood as irrelevant – when the individual undertakes and successfully emerges from the ordeal of The Abyss.

Which ordeal reveals The Unity, the affective acausality, beyond the illusive, the mundane, dialectic of opposing opposites; an illusive dialectic exemplified by “choosing sides” such as, in terms of political abstractions, “Left Wing” and “Right Wing”.

Those conversant with O9A esotericism will know that the novels of the O9A Deofel Quartet (written between the 1970s and the early 1990s) present

{quote}
                  “much of the diverse aural traditions as AL [Anton Long] received them: as stories about people, their interactions; their ‘satanic’ or esoteric views and beliefs; and about certain events that involved those people. In The Deofel Quartet he simply reworked the factual material – as writers of fiction are wont to do – in order to make an interesting story, in the process obscuring the identities of those involved and sometimes their place of residence or work; added some entertaining details (as in the ‘astral battles’ between goodies and baddies in Falcifer, of a kind now familiar – decades later – from the Harry Potter stories) and concatenated certain events in order to provide ‘action’ in a limited time-frame.
                  Thus, the fictional stories not only compliment other O9A material but provide a ‘different way into’ the complex O9A mythos; a way that many will find more interesting (and certainly more entertaining) than thousands of pages of sometimes polemical and sometimes ponderous O9A factual texts, and a way that especially places the O9A’s satanism into perspective, Aeonically and otherwise.”
{/quote}

None of the novels of the Quartet concern politics. None of them deal with political revolution or concern themselves with “terrorism”. None of them concern “neo-nazism”. None of them involve “racism” or are “anti-gay” or misogynistic. In truth, the novels – ahead of their time – contain strong female characters (such as Fiona in The Greyling Owl, and Lianna in The Giving) as well as positive gay characters (such as Fenton in The Greyling Owl).

To understand the O9A is to understand how and why The Deofel Quartet presences O9A esotericism: as involving real individuals some of whom (as in Falcifer) may have an interest in Satanism and the Occult, and some of whom (as in The Greyling Owl) are not interested in, or appear not to be interested in, Satanism and the Occult. As readers of such works as Falcifer and The Giving and The Temple of Satan discover, esoterically the O9A is far beyond even the causal abstraction, the causal form, termed “Satanism”.

Thus, as described in The Temple Of Satan,

{quote}
                  “All of [the books], and the manuscripts bound like books, were about alchemy, magick or the Occult. He could read the Latin of the medieval manuscripts and books, but what they related did not interest him as the later books brought forth no desire to read further.
                  Even the Black Book of Satan, resting on the table, seemed irrelevant to him. They were all compilations of shadow words, appearing to Thurstan to fall short of the aim that the searchers who had written them should have aimed for. His instinctive feeling was to observe in a contemplative way some facet of the cosmos – to stand outside in the dark of the night and listen for the faint music that travelled down to Earth from the stars – rather the enclose himself in the warm womb of a house to read the writings of others. Demons, spells, hidden powers, the changing of base metal to gold, even the promises of power and change for himself, were not important to Thurstan, and he left the library with its stored knowledge and forbidden secrets and lurking gods, to walk in the moonlit garden.
                  The stars were not singing for him – or he could not hear them above the turmoil of his thought…
                  He moved, like an old man pained by his limbs, through the cold and sometimes swirling mist along a path that took him toward the Mynd and up, steeply, to its level summit where he stood, high above the mist, to watch the mist-clotted valleys below.
                  The heather was beginning to show the glory of its colour, and he walked through it northbound along the cracked and stony road stopping often to turn around and wait. But no one and nothing came to him – no voices, song or sigh […]
                  The very Earth itself seemed to be whispering to him the words of this truth. He began to sense, slowly, that there was for him real magick here where moorland fell to form deep hollows home to those daughters of Earth known as springs and streams, and where the Neolithic pathway had heard perhaps ten million stories. No wisps of clouds came to spoil the glory of the sun as it rose over the mottled wavy hills beyond the Stretton valley miles distant and below. No noise to break the almost sacred silence heard. For an instant it seemed as if some divinity, strange but pure, came into the world, and smiled.”
{/quote}

Thus, The Greyling Owl deals

{quote}
                  “with a type of ‘hidden sinister sorcery’ that owes little or nothing to what has become accepted as ‘the Western occult tradition’, satanic or otherwise, with its demons, its invocations and evocations, its rituals, and people dressing up in robes. Instead, it concerns someone being manipulated, brought into a position of influence, without even knowing or suspecting there is an occult aspect; someone – in modern parlance – being ‘groomed’ to at some future time use that influence for a sinister purpose as directed by the person or persons to whom he is now indebted.
                  That is, there is a revealing of how the O9A often operates, and has operated, in the real world; and how O9A people are often secretive, with their occult connections, and their interest in the sinister, unknown to colleagues and friends. The title itself gives a clue, for the word greyling is used in reference to Hipparchia Semele (commonly referred to as the Grayling), a type of butterfly found in Britain and one which is ‘a master of disguise and can mysteriously disappear as soon as it lands, perfectly camouflaged’. Hence the title seems to, esoterically, suggest the pairing of the ‘mistress of disguise’ (Fiona) with ‘the owl’ (Mickleman) and which working together will enable sinister deeds to be done, most possibly by Mickleman (under the guidance of Fiona) influencing or recruiting people from within his natural academic environment.”
{/quote}

Thus, the following paean to Sapphic love, from Breaking The Silence Down, the novel often considered as making the Deofel ‘quartet’ into a quintet of esoteric novels:

{quote}
                  “Blissful, they returned to their home. The rain ceased with their arrival and in the subdued light in the now cramped sitting room of their bungalow, Rachael sat at her piano to transform herself and the night. Diane listened and watched, entranced. Rachael’s playing created a new world and a new woman, and Diane watched this strange woman create from the instrument of wood, steel and tone a universe of beauty, ecstasy and light.
                  Bach, Beethoven – it made no difference what or for how long she played. But, as it always had since that night, Beethoven’s Opus 111 fascinated her with feelings, visions, and stupendous, world-creating thought. It imbued her with insight, and a love that wanted to envelope Rachael and consume her.
                  It was pleasure and pain to watch Rachael transform herself through the act of her playing into a goddess she would die for. No reason touched her while she listened. There was, she knew, no greater life than this, no greater feeling and she wanted to immolate herself with Rachael’s ecstasy, immolate world upon world with this glory and passion which no male god described.
                  Then the silence, while clamoured notes faded and dimmed light framed. There were no more tears Diane could cry and she waited while Rachael slowly rose and offered her hand. She – the goddess within – was smiling and Diane allowed herself to be led. The music in her head, the memories and secret dreams of youth: all were before her, embodied in flesh and she had only to kiss the slightly scented lips or see the secret wisdom hidden in the eyes to reach the summit of her life, slowly, in the dim corners of the bedroom’s reflected dark.”
{/quote}

Given that most O9A critics have never bothered to read the O9A “deofel quintet” – or, if they have, have miserably failed to appreciate its esoteric significance – it is not surprising that they have such a biased, mundane, view of the O9A.
