Fallacies Of Anti-O9A Propaganda

Posted: March 14th, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Fallacies Of Anti-O9A Propaganda

°°°°°°°°°

As mentioned in previous articles, the propaganda about the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) written and distributed by a political advocacy group is riddled with errors {1} and reveals the astonishing lack of knowledge about the O9A by that political advocacy group; a lack which is either deliberate – arising from hatred and prejudice – or arising because of a desire to spread propaganda about one of their declared enemies.

The propaganda also reveals the author committing several logical fallacies; either from ignorance or because of hatred and prejudice and/or a desire to spread propaganda about a declared enemy.

Some examples of such fallacies are:

° In respect of the O9A, in their 2019 so-called “Sate of hate” report, and in their 2020 report, the author commits the logical fallacy of Incomplete Evidence by selectively quoting from some O9A material, ignoring other material which provides context or which contradicts such quotations, and quoting material authored by some of those who associate themselves with the Occult movement that is the O9A.

Thus most of the O9A corpus is ignored, since a study of that corpus (i) would have contradicted their claim that the O9A is neo-nazi, {2} {3} (ii) revealed the context for suggested Insight Roles, which is a short part of the third stage of the decades long Seven Fold Way; (iii) revealed the fundamental O9A principle of individual authority, {4} and (iv) contradicted their claim that the O9A encourage misogyny and rape. {5}

° In the same report the author commits the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter. Which is the use of particular individual cases to form a general rule to then use that rule to describe, and thence to blame, or to castigate, or to defame a whole group. In many instances this involves quoting from material authored by some of those who associate themselves with the Occult movement that is the O9A.

° In the 2020 report the author commits the fallacy of argumentum ad verecundiam – argument from authority – by repeating what certain others have said or written about the O9A, with it being obvious from the errors made in that and the 2019 report and from the committal of the foregoing two other fallacies, that the author is not an authority on the subject of O9A esoteric theory and praxises.

° In both reports the author commits a fallacy of presumption by making conclusions based on their assumptions and claim; in addition to which the author provides no evidence – nothing probative – for their assumptions and claims, such as in the matter of Mr Myatt being Anton Long, and which assumptions and claims often derive from the foregoing three fallacies.

The propagandistic nature of the reports can thus be seen, for the biased and misleading information they contain has been systematically disseminated in order to promote a political cause.

{1} See the text titled Exposing Twelve Basic Errors available at http://www.o9a.org/2019/03/fake-news/.

For an esoteric understanding of the O9A, refer to the 300 page Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy, which is available at http://www.o9a.org/wp-content/uploads/o9a-trilogy-print.pdf

{2} See the chapter The Alleged National Socialism Of The O9A in The Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy. The article quotes from letters by Anton Long sent to Michael Aquino and others in the early 1990s, letters which were published in 1992.

{3} See also Order Of Nine Angles: The Deofel Quintet, included in Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy, where it is explained that The Deofel Quintet (written between 1976 and the early 1990’s) places the neo-nazism aspect into the necessary esoteric perspective, for the novels of the Deofel Quintet are non-political.

{4} The principle is explained in the two articles Authority, Learning, and Culture, In O9A Tradition (written in 2013) and The Authority Of Individual Judgement: Interpretation And Meaning (written in 2014). Both articles are included in The Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy.

The axiom of the authority of individual judgement means that each O9A person, nexion, group, or cell, are – with one important exception – free to develop their own interpretation of everything O9A, free to develop and change everything O9A, and that there is no authority above the individual, or beyond each group or collective of groups. No O9A leader, no outer (or inner) ‘representative’, no council, no ‘old guard’, who can make pronouncements about or declare what is or is not correct. No ‘official’ or ‘genuine’ O9A; no ‘heresy’; no proscription of individuals or groups. Furthermore, no consensus is necessary or required among those who are or who associate with the O9A {2}, although naturally a particular O9A nexion may have or arrive at a particular internal consensus and thus presence a particular interpretation of matters O9A.

{5} The O9A consider rapists as suitable candidates for culling: see for example the text Culling And The Code of Kindred Honour (written 2015) available at http://www.o9a.org/wp-content/uploads/culling-o9a-code-v3.pdf

The pro-Sapphic novel Breaking The Silence Down – written in 1985 and part of The Deofel Quintet – and the essay The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos – written in 2017 and available at http://www.o9a.org/wp-content/uploads/o9a-questions-2017-v5b-1.pdf – reveals the O9A attitude toward women, with the O9A code of kindred honour embodying respect for women and gender equality.

This compilation is of articles and texts which provide “the O9A side of the story” in relation to the accusations made about the O9A (Order of Nine Angles) and the propaganda spread regarding the O9A in two reports, published in 2019 and 2020, by a political advocacy group, and which group is currently (March 2020) trying to get the O9A banned by the British government.

The articles and texts reveal the astonishing lack of knowledge about the O9A by that political advocacy group; a lack which is either deliberate – arising from hatred and prejudice – or arising because of a desire to spread propaganda about one of their declared enemies.

Unlike the anti-O9A propaganda spread by that political advocacy group, the articles and texts in the compilation give detailed references to O9A works and other sources.

More Anti-O9A Propaganda

°°°°°°°°°

The recent (March 2020) report by the so-called “Hope Not Hate” political advocacy group devotes over ten pages to the O9A, calling for the O9A to be banned as a terrorist group, stating that “the Order of Nine Angles (O9A) is a Nazi-Satanist group.”

Is there anything evidential, probative – anything that would be acceptable in a Court of Law – in their report regarding the O9A being an organization with members? No. Is there anything probative in their report regarding the O9A being a nazi-satanist group? No, there is not.

Instead, in a propagandist way, they state their opinions and make assumptions as if they were fact, which they most certainly are not as study of an O9A primary source – such as the 300 page trilogy Seofonfeald Paeth (pdf) – would have revealed. For such a study would have shown that the Order of Nine Angles is an anarchist sub-culture rather than a neo-nazi one. {1}

They also claim that “the O9A was set up by David Myatt in the early 1970s” and yet provide nothing probative – anything that would be acceptable in a Court of Law – regarding Myatt being Anton Long and founder of the O9A. Instead, in a propagandist way, they state their opinion as if it was fact, which it is not.

Is there anything probative in their report regarding the O9A being an organization with members? No.

Is there anything probative in their report regarding how Mr Myatt has rejected extremism, violence, and National Socialism? No there is not. {2}

Is there anything probative in their report regarding the accusations that the O9A encourages sexual violence? No, there is not. {3}

All there is, yet again, {4} is disinformation, a lack of research into the esoteric theory and praxises of the O9A, together with propaganda, and more fake news.

That the mainstream Media are reproducing such disinformation and propaganda by a political advocacy group – which has its own agenda – without doing their own research into the O9A using primary O9A texts is indicative of how the Media are complicit in spreading fake news about the O9A and about Mr Myatt.

In that and other articles it is clearly stated that

[quote]
A study of the O9A corpus from the 1980s to 2018 – from the pro-Sapphic novel Breaking The Silence Down to the essay The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos – reveals the O9A attitude toward women, with the O9A code of kindred honour embodying respect for women and gender equality and with the O9A having [according to an academic] “more female supporters than either the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set [and] more women with children.”

Nowhere in the corpus of O9A texts written by Anton Long between the 1970s and 2011 does the O9A advocate rape.

In fact the O9A consider rapists as suitable candidates for culling.

In regard to the O9A considering rapists as suitable candidates for culling refer to Culling And The Code Of Kindred Honour which references a real-life case.

Banning The O9A

Posted: March 2nd, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: Heretical Texts, Inner ONA, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, Nihilism, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Banning The O9A

°°°°°°°°°

According to a BBC news report, dated 2 March 2020, the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) should be banned as a terrorist organization.

The report states that “In the past year four teenagers linked to the ideology have been jailed in the UK for terror offences, with one of them convicted of preparing for a terror attack by – among other things – trying to alter himself in line with instructions set out in ONA texts.”

The report also extensively quotes from recent propaganda issued by the mis-named and biased Hope Not Hate political advocacy group which, like its propaganda report issued in 2019, {1} is full of factual errors, unproven allegations, and personal opinion stated as fact. For example, they incorrectly claim that O9A “ideas have drawn in young extremists in the UK and elsewhere, and have helped nourish a dangerous culture of unprecedented depravity amongst the extreme right, which has none of the moral constraints that previous generations of far-right activists had.”

Both that 2019 report and more recent propaganda reveal a total ignorance of the esoteric theory and praxises of the O9A, a theory and praxises evident in the 300 page trilogy Seofonfeald Paeth (pdf) which trilogy also makes clear that the O9A is not an organization but is an anarchist sub-culture rather than a neo-nazi one. {2}

Little wonder then that Hope Not Hate is regarded by many researchers as a deprecated source that should not be used or trusted, with it having been stated that “because they are an advocacy group, they are a biased and opinionated source”. {3}

According to Yvette Cooper MP, chairwoman of the Home Affairs select committee, the British Home Secretary “should immediately” refer the ONA to the government’s proscription review group, since it seems that she is under the misapprehension that the O9A’s “combination of Nazi-Satanism, extreme violence and sexual abuse makes it particularly troubling and action needs to be taken to prevent them grooming and radicalising other people.”

Given how the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) has been misleadingly portrayed in the last few years in the Media, and even in Courts of Law, we reprint here an article published in 2011 about the importance of empathy in O9A tradition.

The article was subsequently included in the 2019 book titled Tyberness (ISBN 978-1696821742) and which book was part of a trilogy that presents an initiated and detailed understanding of both O9A esoteric philosophy and of the Occult methods of the O9A. The two other books in the trilogy are Feond (ISBN 978-1687255624) and Baeldraca (ISBN 978-1689931953).

°°°°°°°°°

The Esoteric Chant tradition of the O9A – as described in the seminal MS Naos {1} and in other O9A documents – has received little attention from either academics or modern Occultists, even though O9A texts describe Esoteric Chant as a Dark Art – a unique type of sinister sorcery {2} – and as an “esoteric language” appropriate to the New Aeon {3}.

The following pdf document contains internet links to, and explanations of, some of the O9A Esoteric Chants performed by the musician Nameless Therein {4} many of whose recordings are the first time particular O9A chants have been made publicly available.

°°°°°°°°°

The Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy is a 300 page gratis open source pdf document of post-2011 O9A texts and is intended for (i) those who have an interest in learning about an esoteric tradition with roots in Greco-Roman culture, Hellenistic mysticism, and Renaissance Occultism, and/or (ii) those curious about the Occult philosophy and praxis of the Order of Nine Angles, and/or (iii) those who are already associated with the O9A movement and who aspire to, or have already achieved, the O9A grade of Internal Adept on the O9A Seven Fold Way.

Seofonfeald Paeth consists of the latest editions of three O9A books, first published separately in 2019, titled Feond, Baeldraca, and Tyberness.

The title of the trilogy is the slightly amended Old-English spelling of the modern term The Seven Fold Way. Unamended it would read þ seofonfeald pæþ where þ is the “thorn” letter.

Academia And The Order Of Nine Angles
(pdf)

Contents:

° Preface
° The O9A And Academia: Ruben Van Luijk
° The O9A And Academia: Della E. Campion
° The O9A And Academia: Jacob Senholt and Massimo Introvigne

°°°°°°°

From the Preface:

           The modern Occult sub-culture (or movement) known as the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA, ω9α) has received scant attention from the academic community whose attention, research, and writings hitherto in respect of modern Occult movements such as Satanism and the Western Left Hand Path have been focused on Howard Stanton Levey (alias Anton LaVey) and his Church of Satan, on Aleister Crowley, and on Michael Aquino and his Temple of Set.

With one possible exception, {1} when the O9A has been written about by an academic it is in cursory terms and based on secondary or tertiary and not primary sources; or it reveals that the author or authors have committed a logical fallacy or two; or it is based on assumptions such as that the O9A is indebted to the Satanism propagated by Howard Stanton Levey, indebted to Aquino, indebted to HP Lovecraft; and/or that core O9A traditions, such as the septenary Tree of Wyrd, are merely “a replacement for the Kabbalah” used by all non-O9A Western Occultists.

In other words,

(i) the academic consensus seems to be that the esoteric philosophy and the praxises of the O9A are derived from other modern Occultists, and
(ii) that as a consequence the O9A written corpus – amounting to thousands of pages and distributed between the 1970s and 2019 – does not merit scholarly study, {2} despite the fact that “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,” {3} and/or
(iii) that academic standards in modern academia have declined so that the committal of logical fallacies by authors goes either unnoticed or is uncommented on. {4}

We present here several articles – slightly revised since their initial publication to include references to recent O9A texts such as the three hundred page 2019 trilogy Feond, Baeldraca, Tyberness {5} – which articles consider the writings of four academics who have written about the O9A, and which articles thus document the errors, omissions, assumptions made by, and the logical fallacies committed by, such authors.

{1} The exception is the chapter on the O9A by Connell Monette in the book Mysticism in the 21st Century. Sirius Academic Press, 2nd edition, 2015, ISBN 978-1940964102.

{2} Correctly understood, a scholarly approach means undertaking a meticulous, unbiased, research into a specific subject over a period of some years using, wherever possible, primary sources; formulating an opinion based on such learning, such knowledge, as results from such research, and in respect of writing academic papers and books about the subject providing copious, accurate, references to the source material.

Primary sources include direct evidence such as original documents dating from the period under study, and accounts and works (written, verbal, published or unpublished) by such individuals whose life or whose writings or whose works form part of the research. In addition, if such sources – documents or accounts or writings – are in another language, then it is incumbent upon the scholar to have knowledge of that language and thus be able to translate such documents themselves, for a reliance upon the translations of others relegates such sources from the position of primary ones to secondary ones.

Hence, if the author of an academic book or academic paper writes about a person and/or about their works, or about an event, using only secondary sources – sources containing the opinions, the interpretations, or the conclusions of others – then the opinion, the interpretation, the conclusions of that author about such a person and/or about their works, or about an event, are unauthoritative because unscholarly.

Primary sources in respect of the O9A include the 1980s ,Naos, manuscript, and the 2019 trilogy Feond, Baeldraca, and Tyberness.

{3} Examples are provided of such fallacies in relation to what has been written about the O9A, and which fallacies include the fallacy of Incomplete Evidence, the fallacy of Illicit Transference, and the fallacy of Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc, and argumentum ad verecundiam.

Tyberness: Toward The Abyss
(pdf)

°°°°°°°

This collection of post-2011 Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA, ω9α) texts supplements the two volumes Feond and Baeldraca and like those compilations of self-contained recent (post-2011) O9A texts is intended for (i) those who have an interest in learning about an esoteric tradition with roots in Greco-Roman culture, Hellenistic mysticism, and Renaissance Occultism, and/or (ii) those curious about the Occult philosophy and praxis of the O9A, and/or (iii) those who are already associated with the O9A movement and who aspire to, or have already achieved, the O9A grade of Internal Adept on the O9A Seven Fold Way.

The three volumes represent “the last word” on the O9A insofar as its public personae are concerned. For there will be no more public intimations of “the esoteric O9A” way, as befits the move to O9A phase (iteration) 3.

The title – Tyberness – is a variant spelling of the old Anglo-Saxon tiberness, and means “Destruction, Immolation, Sacrifice.”
