Children and The O9A
Hitherto, the controversial occultism of the Order Of Nine Angles (O9A/ONA) has generally been categorized by academics and others as satanist and/or as Left Hand Path. Thus, the O9A has been described both as representing “a dangerous and extreme form of Satanism” and as presenting “a recognizable new interpretation of Satanism and the Left Hand Path”.
The O9A themselves, as noted by Senholt, have often described themselves as part of what they term the ‘sinister tradition’ and, in the 1980s and 1990s, as ‘traditional satanists’, with Senholt writing that this ‘sinister tradition’ they established makes the O9A “distinct from existing Left Hand Path and satanic groups” but still within the Left Hand Path and satanic milieu. Senholt enumerates seven distinct characteristics of this ‘sinister tradition’, which include anti-ethics, emphasis on physical training, direct action, distinct sinister vocabulary, and a non-Semitic tradition.
Furthermore, both Goodrick-Clarke and Monette note that the O9A also has some pagan elements, with Monette writing that the O9A is “a fascinating blend of both Hermeticism and Traditional Satanism, with some pagan elements.”
However, it is my contention that the O9A should be placed in a new occult category described by the term the sinisterly-numinous tradition, and which tradition is distinct from both the satanic and the Left Hand Path traditions.
