.:.DM [“Anton Long”] is growing old. We are making powerful enemies [government agencies and lobby goons trying to make o9a a paper tiger terrorist group]. The next 10 years will be Critical for the Order of Nine Angles, if it is to survive, to realistically become a long-living aeonic institution to eventually one day fulfill its aeonic objectives.

The first problem the decentralized movement of o9a Associates must think about and consider is that in 10 years DM will be in his 80s. He, like any human being, will pass away. An institution that is dependent on its parental mind, rarely survives the death of that parental mind. At the onset and commencement of the Third Phase of Fayen, in the vulgar year 2012, we began to take measures to insure/ensure that the o9a survives DM’s eventual Mortal passing by retiring Anton Long.

It has been now 8 years, since o9a weened itself from Anton Long as its memetic, ideological, and doctrinal source. Time has shown us that o9a can grow in a healthy manner without Anton Long, which is a positive and encouraging sign.

But the Umbilical Cord which attaches o9a to DM has not yet been fully severed. There are still two o9a institutions that need to eventually be decommissioned/discontinued within the next 10 years. The first is the institution known as the “OG” [Old Guards], and the second institution is what is self-referred to as the “Inner Circle.”

I hesitate to bring this topic up, because I will be demonized for it. Just like many years ago I was demonized for working to help retire Anton Long from o9a and working to help get rid of leadership positions from o9a, to help make o9a into a leaderless movement. But I do understand that it is human to dislike change, and do I understand that sometimes ego and the egotistic desire for adulation and status is powerful.

And so, when I speak of fully severing the umbilical cord and eventually getting rid of the Old Guard and Inner Circle institutions, I am appealing to first your sense of Reason and secondly to your Aeonic Perspective. Appealing to those few who identify themselves as being “Old Guards,” and members of the “Inner Circle” primarily.

There are and will be certain reason why the institutions of Old Guard and Inner Circle need to eventually be retired.

The first certain reason is that: o9a has now grown big today, in this Third Phase of Fayen, such that no single person [Anton Long or otherwise], no single group of persons [Old Guard, Inner Circle, or otherwise], and no single Nexion has and will have any realistic control over the o9a to dictate how o9a “should be” and how o9a Associates “should be,” and so on. Thus, in 10 years, when even more people become o9a Associates, it will be that such old aeon institutions like Old Guards and Inner Circle will be irrelevant and somewhat of an anachronism to each successive young generation of o9a Associates.

Nobody [such as myself] has the “authority” to retire and discontinue the institutions of Old Guard and Inner Circle, except those few individuals who identify themselves as such. Said individuals, must honestly reflect into themselves, over the next decade, and trying to use their sense of Reason and Aeonic Perspective, to eventually come to understand why the institutions of Old Guard and Inner Circle will eventually need to be retired, as Anton Long was retired.

I do understand and empath issues and subject matters that may arise in the Hearts and Minds of the Old Guards and those who constitutes the Inner Circle. For example, the said may think to themselves: “If we discontinue the institution of Old Guard & Inner Circle, how are we insured/ensured that DM/AL will continue to have a prominent and influential place/status in o9a?”

I’ll provide the answer to that question/concern here: 1) o9a is the creation of DM/AL and always will be, 2) the entire memetic, ideological, doctrinal, textual, and philosophical foundation of o9a, referred to as the “o9a Corpus,” was written by “Anton Long.” Said Corpus is over 5000 pages of text, which every human being who desired to be o9a must study. And so, by that very fact, DM/AL will always have a prominent place and status in o9a as the main influencer in o9a [dead or alive, forgive my language]. 3) If o9a can survive and thrive after DM/AL’s passing, then o9a will become DM/AL’s Legacy, by and through which DM/AL will continue to inspire and influence future generations of Sinister Initiates. 4) The doctrinal source of a memeplex – such as a philosophy, religion, ideology, and so on – is never forgotten, cases in point: Muhammad with Islam, Buddha with Buddhism, Kant with Kantianism, Plato with Platonic Philosophy, Aristotle with his school of philosophy, Lao Tzu with Taoism, Kung Fu Tzu [Confucius] with Confucianism, Gerald Gardner with Gardnerian Wicca, Anton LaVey with LaVeyan Satanism, etc.

Another question that may be asked would be: “What exactly are your intentions?” The answer: My intention is point 3. I want DM/AL to have a Legacy, and Yana [vehicle] as we say in Buddhism, so he and his writings can continue to inspire and influence future generations. The o9a becoming a Legacy will make DM/AL a man above Time. The time and environmental conditions for the o9a is here: the world/earth will not get any better, climate change will continue to cause desertification, there will continue to be massive human migration from the South into Europe and America, there will continue to be Culture Clashes.

Everything which exists in this universe, in Principle [Natural Law] is a product of its environment. The environment on this earth, and specifically in Europe and America will be ripe for something like o9a to take root and spread like wild fire. This past decade was just a test, as if o9a put its foot in the waters to test it, and in just a decade o9a has become a noticeable threat to the Liberal and Leftist establishment such that their media stooges and government agencies are becoming alarmed. Which brings us to the second problem o9a will be facing for the next decade.

The second problem the decentralized movement of o9a Associates must think about and consider is that over the years, due to the successful growth of the o9a, and the work Associates across the globe have put in to infiltrate mostly far-right organizations, we have made powerful political enemies. Enemies that want to lobby governments to get o9a banned as a dangerous terrorist group. The work of the enemy, no doubt led by Liberals, Leftists, and Zionist stooges, has only just started. The more Associates o9a gives birth to in the future, the more work the enemy will put in to try and ban and kill the o9a. Just like they banned and destroyed many kindred groups.

And so, in order to adapt and counteract what the enemy can and will try to do, o9a needs to fully be a leaderless Sinister Occult Movement, and not an organization or group. Being and organization or group makes it so that such enemies can ban it or infiltrate it or sow seeds of social discord. We all know they have done such things before with organizations and groups that many o9a Associates have been members and activists of.

Therefore: it must be understood by current and future o9a Associates that the Order of Nine Angles is not and was never an organization or group. The Order of Nine Angles is the Label and Name of the Corpus of Texts written by Anton Long between the years 1970-2012. As such, there is no such thing as “membership” because one cannot join something which does not exist as an organization or group to join. We Associate with the Corpus, read it, study it, and put it into practice. Just like a person Associates with the Bible and Church culture, studies the Bible, puts such into practice and calls themselves “Christian.” Just like a Buddhist associates with the teachings of the Buddha, puts that shit into practice, and calls themselves a “Buddhist.” Just like a Liberal, associates with Liberal ideology, and works to manifest Liberal Agendas, and call themselves Liberals. You don’t join the o9a, you create it by putting the Corpus into practice in whole or in part [per the Corpus]. The o9a is a collection of texts written by Anton Long: that’s all it is in reality sans the mythos. And so: a collection of texts does not have a leader, priesthood, Old Guards, or Inner Circle: because such are the trappings and mechanisms of an organization and group.

Lastly, the decentralized association of Sinister Initiates, those of us who associate with the o9a Corpus and puts such into practice in whole or in part, those of us who are inspired by said Corpus, must do things a little differently this next decade, due to the fact that we have powerful enemies, and will continue to make more powerful enemies. What we need to now understand and keep always in mind, is that the enemy will eventually try to attack the weakest spot of any group or Association or Social Order.

The weak spot of any group, Association, or Social Order is the Strength of Social Bond [or lack thereof]. What I mean is that: the weakest point of any social order or movement; like for example: radical Islam, the Republican Party, the scientific community, the Black Lives Matter thing, etc; is when the individuals that make up such movement or social order are prone to infighting, distrust, disloyalty, and so on. An institution’s lack of Honourable Behavior and Loyalty and Trust of Fellow Associates, is what ultimately weakens an institution.

And so, in that regard, the o9a’s Law of the New Aeon, which is also known as the Law of Kindred Honour, for the next 10 years, is of vital importance. Regardless of whether we know each other or not, and we do not always agree with each other, but each of us who in some way Associates and/or identifies with o9a must be strong in Arete, becoming of an Aryaputra/Aryaputri [Son/Daughter of the Arya/Aryan/Noble/Honourable]. And therefore, must try to develop a strong social bond with other Associates and Sinister Kin, founded on trust, honour, and Loyalty. And to think twice, using Reason and Aeonic Insight, before we jump to conclusions and emotively attack or shit talk or bicker with each other: because to be prone to such dishonourable ethos and behavior will now benefit our enemies.

I understand that in the past, when o9a was tiny and it was just the few of us, we were relaxed with social bonds and sometimes got on each other’s cases. The next 10 years will be different because o9a has grown big and global, with new younger generations of Sinister Initiates, such that o9a has garnered for itself powerful enemies. And by enemies, I don’t mean petty and pitiful “rivals” like the Temple of Set and Church of Satan. I mean shit like that Leftist-Fake-News-Mongering guy from that one deplorable website Hope Not Hate who is trying to ban o9a [how do you ban a pile of writings?]; and shit like US government agencies.

And so, due to the fact that o9a now has powerful enemies who will work to try and get rid of it, for the next decade the o9a Law of Kindred Honour becomes very important. We all need to be cool with each other and not be so emotively prone to fight and argue with one another, as individuals and as nexions. Because such behaviour will now benefit our enemies.

The gist is that, the next 10 years will be crucial and critical for o9a’s survival as a real aeonic force. It needs to survive this coming decade, to survive DM/AL’s mortality, to become a Sinister Legacy, so that it can continue to gradually manifest its Wyrd and Aeonic [Myattian] Aims. In essence, what needs to be done in the next 10 years is to give o9a to the Next Generation. And by “Next Generation,” I don’t mean myself and the White Star Acception, the Temple of THEM, or Tempel ov Blood, since our nexions are now old from the previous decade. And by “Next Generation,” I don’t necessarily mean young in age, I also mean those who have newly found o9a and have become new initiates regardless of their age. But the youth are indeed of vital importance.

Thus, I mean all of those named and nameless, known and unknown people who have found the o9a Corpus, have become inspired by it, have put o9a Corpus into practice in whole or in part, and have taken o9a into entire new directions, via their own new groups and nexions. Because: in order for the o9a to realistically survive, decade after decade, to outlive our memetic rivals [Temple of Set, Church of Satan], and to survive our newly garnered enemies, o9a must continuously be Given and Offered to each successive new generation of Sinister Initiates, so that they can take it and run with it.

Our memetic rivals will not survive into 2030, because they have old aeon institutions and structures that strive to hold onto and control their organization, such that the youth and Next Generation can’t take their shit, and make their shit into something they need that is relevant to their Generational views and capacity of mind. This is something most people are ignorant of: that each generation develops not only their own views, world-model, needs, but also they grow in capacity for intelligence. For example, we of today are smarter, more intelligent and see the world differently and have different needs than the generation of the 1950s and 1960s.

And so therefore, people of my Generation [Y Gen] have a hard time seeing and Feeling any meaning and relevance in The Satanic Bible, which was a product of 1960. In order to stay relevant to each new generation, you must allow your institution to evolve to meet the Capacity for Intelligence of each generation. Therefore, trying to hold onto and control an institution, in time kills it [make it irrelevant to a future generation]. Which is paradoxical and ironic, because one holds onto control to feed one’s ego, but yet that very same hold onto control eventually kills the same thing that feeds one’s ego. An example of this Principle is the Communist Regime of the now extinct USSR.

Thus, if o9a does the same thing as the Temple of Set and Church of Satan and USSR: we will, in Principle [by Natural Law] reap the same end results. It can be no other way. Shouldn’t we do the opposite of failures? The Principle dictates that o9a needs to be allowed to be Free and to be given to the Next Generation, in order for it to continuously evolve and stay alive. And by “evolve” I don’t mean old Traditions are replaced by new stuff. Evolve like how any human culture evolves: old Traditions remain, and new customs and practices are accumulated. The o9a, after all, is a [Sinister] Tradition.

The only real way to allow an institution to grow in tandem to the succession of each generation is to give each generation the institution, to have and run with, in their own directions. Which is how human languages evolve. A generation takes that language, runs with it, adds a few new words, the next generations takes that language, runs with it, and adds their own new words: and after hundreds of years of this, you have the evolution of Old English into our modern English, or Ancient Latin into the various Romance languages. Nobody is the leader of human language, language has no “old guard” or “inner circle.” Isn’t it intelligent to follow the example of such things that have successfully existed for hundreds and even thousands of years, like religion [Islam, Buddhism, etc], human language, and human culture [Vedic culture has been around for 5000 years and counting], as opposed to doing the same things as failed institutions like the Temple of Set and Church of Satan?

There is a heavy price all things in this universe must pay if such things cannot evolve to adapt to its constantly changing environment: Extinction. And to hold onto and try to control something, is in essence fettering it down such that evolution and adaptation to the flux of environment [social, political, climate, religious, or otherwise] and the succession of human generations and the constant incremental expansion of the Capacity for Intelligence does not occur. But the ego is powerful: some people, like those in the Temple of Set and Church of Satan, are willing to pay the cost of institutional extinction to hold onto control and power. Which works to our [o9a’s] advantage in the long-term.

The way that Anton Long put o9a together, makes it so that mechanisms like that of “Old Guard” and “Inner Circle,” in practice are irrelevant. As Anton Long said, in The Authority of Individual Judgement:

[Begin Quote]

The authority of individual judgement is one of the fundamental axioms of the esoteric philosophy of Anton Long and thus a fundamental principle applicable to how that esotericism is presenced in the praxises of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A/ONA).

This axiom means that even the writings of Anton Long, and his esoteric philosophy, are only guides, a necessary beginning, and possess no ultimate authority:

“We see our way as guiding a few individuals to self-awareness, to Adeptship and beyond, via various practical and magickal techniques. The emphasis is on guide, on self-development, on self-discovery. There is no religious attitude, no acceptance of someone else’s authority […]

I claim no authority, and my creations, profuse as they are, will in the end be accepted or rejected on the basis of whether they work (Satan forbid they should ever become dogma or a matter of faith). I also expect to see them become transformed, by their own metamorphosis and that due to other individuals: changed, extended and probably ultimately transcended, may be even forgotten. They – like the individual I am at the moment – are only a stage, toward something else.” 

For 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 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.

The axiom the authority of individual judgement also means that each O9A person, nexion, group, or cell, will use their own judgement in respect of what they do; in how they, individually and/or as part of an O9A nexion, ‘presence the dark and manifest the sinister’ in practical ways.

[End Quote]

The Key Points of that quote is that 1) o9a is based on the o9a Corpus which is Anton Long’s writings and that he himself says that such o9a Corpus is not (a) Dogmatic & (b) only Guides and that 2) we the individual hold the ultimate authority and power of judgment regarding the o9a Corpus and how we each practice and apply the o9a Corpus. Being such, it makes very little sense for the institutions of Old Guard and Inner Circle to exist.

Thus: I am appealing to the Reason and Aeonic Perspective of the Old Guards and Inner Circle, and asking the said, and all of us o9a Associates of the old decade, to let o9a Go and to give it to the Next Generation; and to eventually discontinue the institutions of Old Guard and Inner Circle. We of an old generation of o9a Associates may not always like and agree with how the new generation of Associates may do things, but such are just our generational sentiments/views. “That’s not how we did things in o9a, back when I was a youngster! When I was a young Niner in the 1990s, we didn’t have Telegram and AK-47s! We had Usenet and Rambo knives.” Don’t you think you sound like an old geezer?

If you don’t know what the hell Usenet is, then you are the Next Generation: take o9a and run with it, regardless of any old generational sentiments or views and regardless of what anybody of the past few decades may and will say. Because the future of o9a, meaning o9a’s ability and potential to live long and grow/expand into the future: is actually and literally in your hands, not in the hands of some old generation. Old things die: and so therefore, logically, if such old things clutch onto something, that something will die with that old thing. Which is the case with our memetic rivals, the Temple of Set and Church of Satan. Their old generation clutches onto control and dogmatic power like Gollum from Lord of the Rings.

Therefore, in closing, as Hitler once said: “He who owns the youth, owns the Future.” Let the Next Generation of Dreccs, Niners, Nexions, o9a inspired Groups, Cells, etc, have o9a, and let them take o9a into the Future. The o9a has grown too big and global for any person, or group of people, to control it. I personally believe and feel that the Spirit, Egregore, Volksgeist of o9a, is a Free and Feral spirit and should be allowed to manifest its own Wyrd and Destiny minus any of us trying to hold onto it or control it and its cells [individual o9a Associates]. Let it Go and let it be Free to evolve.
