[ Originally posted at: The Perception Of The O9A – Wyrdsisters ]

 

It is interesting and informative, when considered esoterically and in Aeonic terms, how the perception of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA, ω9α) and the propaganda directed against it, has changed over the past three decades.

Anti-O9A Propaganda

Decades ago, and until quite recently, the O9A was perceived by outsiders as just “a minor satanic organization” {1} with most anti-O9A propaganda the preserve of self-described satanists who believed in or who followed the egoist ‘satanism’ propagated by Howard Stanton Levey whose aliases included Anton LaVey. This propaganda was spread mostly by means of the medium of the Internet but also in a few books by academics who did not bother to do their own research by studying the O9A corpus, written between 1976 and 2012 by Anton Long, and which academics believed what such Levey-type ‘satanists’ said or wrote about the O9A. This propagandistic image was: (i) of the O9A as not being a true/genuine satanic organization or being  just one or two people, (ii) their belief that Anton Long was David Myatt, for which belief they never presented anything probative, (iii) of the O9A as neo-nazi and promoting nazism, and (iv) of the O9A as unoriginal having plagiarized Crowley, the Church of Satan, Lovecraft, the Temple of Set, and others, with the O9A seven fold Tree of Wyrd just “a replacement for the Kabbalah […] a non-Semitic version of the Kabbalistic Sepherot.”

By 2018 this type of anti-O9A propagated had all but ceased, although it continued to be propagated in books written by academics who still had not bothered to do their own research by studying the O9A corpus and – to give just one example – thus finding the link between the O9A seven fold Tree of Wyrd and the septenary system of both the ancient Pymander tractate of the Corpus Hermeticum and of several Renaissance alchemical texts, from which alchemical texts the O9A (that is, Anton Long) derived their “nine angles” which are the nine combinations of the three basic substances  alchemical Salt, alchemical Mercury, and alchemical Sulphur.

Septenary System, and the three basic alchemical substances
Azoth Sive Aureliae Occultae Philosophorum
, published in 1613 CE

Part of the reason for the demise of the old anti-O9A propaganda was that interest in and membership of both the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set had declined. However, the main reason for the demise of such anti-O9A propaganda was its replacement by the much more widely spread and much more rabid propaganda of anti-fascists, and which new anti-O9A propaganda led not only calls for the O9A to be banned by Western governments because anti-fascists declared the O9A incited hatred, violence, and terrorism, but also led to the O9A being described as “the most extreme far-Right network in the world,” {2} and as “the most dangerous far-right terror movement operating in the world today,” {3} with the chief propagandist behind the anti-fascist campaign declaring, only a few weeks ago following the banning of a neo-nazi group by the British government, that “the government has missed an opportunity to take action against the dangerous Order of Nine Angles….. the Government must take the threat of O9A more seriously and urgently get a ban in place.” {4}

Unsurprisingly, the anti-fascist campaign consisted of lies, and – like the old anti-O9A propaganda of self-described satanists – the people behind the new campaign not only continued with the trope that “Anton Long is David Myatt” but also just like those satanists did not provide and still have not provided anything probative, any evidence, for their claim that Myatt=Long, committing as most of them do the fallacies of argumentum ad populum – because so many believe it it must be true – and argumentum ad verecundiam, that because some academics have also claimed, in books, that Myatt=Long it is true.

Also unsurprisingly, the anti-fascist campaign had fellow-travellers in Britain and elsewhere – including journalists, politicians, teachers, and academics – who spread this new anti-O9A propaganda in the British Parliament, in books, in the mainstream Media, by the medium of the Internet and more recently by “social media” and “podcasts” with one elected politician in America – Elissa Slotkin, a former CIA analyst who currently oversees a U.S. House subcommittee on intelligence and counterterrorism – demanding that the United States government designate the Order of Nine Angles a Foreign Terrorist Organization. {5}

To add spice to their anti-O9A propaganda, anti-fascists used a tactic of the gutter press and hack-journalists to discredit, to smear, people: making sensationalist claims of paedophilia and rape. Thus anti-fascists accused the O9A of encouraging and condoning rape and paedophilia by claiming that around a dozen people who they allege were “linked to” or who they allege were “members of” the O9A have been convicted of crimes of a sexual nature.

It is astonishing that journalists and politicians and so many other people believed and believe, and have repeated and publicized, these sensationalist claims, such allegations, since (i) the claims were and are based on the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter – arguing from particular to general, blaming a whole group, movement, or organization for the actions of a few – and (ii) no evidence, nothing probative, is provided and never has been provided by those making such claims in respect of how those they name were “linked to” the O9A, and (iii) no evidence, nothing probative, is provided and never has been provided by those making such claims in respect of those they name as having been “members” of the O9A, and (iv) there is no text in the whole O9A corpus (that is, in the 1976-2012 writings of Anton Long) which support or condone rape and paedophilia, but there are published writings – such as the novella titled The Giving {6} – which suggest that those who indulge in such practices make suitable opfers.

Furthermore, what does being “linked to” the O9A mean? What does being a “member of” the O9A mean and imply? What does ω9α, the O9A, the ONA – the Order of Nine Angles – mean and imply? What is the O9A? A group, an organization, a cult, with members? Or is the O9A a sub-culture which some individuals identify with? Or is the O9A an Occult philosophy which some individuals agree with or which inspires them? Or is ω9α an Occult praxis, or even a way of life such as the Way of the Rounwytha?

Such simple and necessary questions are never asked by those who believe and those who repeat such anti-fascist claims. Why not?

Our Answers

As individuals who have studied the O9A corpus over a period of years and who years ago embarked on the modern quest for Lapis Philosophicus that is the O9A Seven Fold Way {7} our answers to those fundamental questions are as follows:

° The O9A – esoterically, and among ourselves, known as ω9α – is an Occult philosophy (a mystic tradition) described by Anton Long in the O9A corpus which he wrote between 1976 and 2012. This philosophy is a pagan one, encompassing the rural Rounwytha tradition, and suggests an individual and decades-long praxis – the Seven Fold Way – by means of which an individual can achieve Adeptship (individuation) and thence discover Lapis Philosophicus, and which praxis is thus a quest, a pathei-mathos, which can lead to wisdom involving as it does a learning from ordeals and from practical experience.

The roots of this modern syncretic philosophy are in the paganism of Ancient Greece and pre-Christian Britannia and in Hellenic hermeticism.

° As an Occult philosophy, presenced in such an individual praxis, the O9A is not an organization or group which has a leader, a hierarchy of authority, or members. Instead, “members” were defined by Anton Long in a letter to “Kimberly” dated 25th September 1992 eh, and included in facsimile in volume II of The Satanic Letters of Stephen Brown,

“Being a member of the ONA simply means that the individual follows, or tries to follow, the path to Adeptship as outlined in various works including Naos.” {8}

° The Occult philosophy of the O9A is, in these modern times, considered to be antinomian: that is, and for an individual, transgressive and heretical, and in practice can be a Katharsis and – given its principle of the authority of individual judgment {9} – perceived as anarchic and/or as nihilistic, although the individual following the praxis that is the Seven Fold Way learns to go beyond both denotata and the dialectic of conflicting opposites based as that dialectic is on human manufactured categories, -isms and -ologies.

° The O9A can therefore be understood as both an anarchic/nihilist/antinomian sub-culture which, or aspects of which, some individuals identify with, and as a way of living and which way is manifest in both the Rounwytha and the Occult quest that is the Seven Fold Way.

° The O9A – ω9α philosophy – is therefore neither neo-nazi nor satanist although individuals following the Seven Fold Way or who identify with some antinomian aspects of O9A sub-culture may use one or both those -isms as learning experiences and/or as a means of being transgressive and heretical and thus may be perceived by unknowledgable outsiders as “satanists” and/or as “neo-nazis” and also be incorrectly perceived by such unknowledgable outsiders as being “linked to” or as “members” of some non-existent group/organization they believe is named the Order of Nine Angles, the Order of the Nine Angles, or the O9A.

The Reasons For Anti-O9A Propaganda

Why the four-year long and, as of 2021, on-going, strident, intense, hateful anti-fascist campaign of lies, smears, innuendo and propaganda directed at the O9A and at the person anti-fascists claim founded and still leads a group, an organization, named the Order of Nine Angles?

A campaign which includes the demand that the Order of Nine Angles be banned by Western governments because it is a “terrorist” entity and a “dangerous neo-nazi” organization which incites “hatred, violence, murder” and because, in the words of Faye Stephen, a Special Agent of the United States Air Force assigned to the Federal Bureau of Investigation New York Joint Terrorism Task Force, the O9A are:

“supporters of, among other things, jihadist terrorism,” and which O9A is “a Satanic anarchist group founded in the United Kingdom and now operating around the world, including in the United States [and which] has expressed, among other [things], Satanic, anarchist, neo-fascist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semitic beliefs [and] support for the views of Usama bin Laden,” whose members and associates believe “that since the time of Nazi Germany, Western civilization has become perverted by, among other things, Judeo-Christian beliefs. They therefore seek the violent overthrow [of] Western civilization.” {10}

After several years of considering the matter and of studying the anti-fascist propaganda campaign and its materials, our view as O9A-folk is that there were two phases involved in the four-year long, on-going, anti-fascist campaign against the O9A.

The first phase was and is the anti-fascist campaign itself – the invented lies, the false claims, the smears, the spreading of rumours, the fallacies used and indulged in either deliberating or otherwise. That is, there was a fabrication of a perception of the O9A far removed from the reality of the O9A: in brief, the fabrication of a fictional O9A: demonizing the O9A and those alleged to be associated with or involved with it.

The second phase, completed over a year ago, was convincing enough people – including journalists, politicians, government and police officials, and certain NGO’s (non-governmental organizations) such as the Institute for Strategic Dialogue  {11} and the Counter Extremism Project {12} – that the anti-fascist  fabricated, fictional, O9A is “the truth”.

In our view, the anti-fascists who fabricated their own “evil, dangerous” version of the O9A – and who spread the lies, false claims and smears involved, are “unreasonable and unjust in their seasons of excitement” so that they often speak or write emotively, make hasty judgements, and are intolerant because they are convinced they and their cause are right and that their enemies are not just wrong or misguided but “evil” and therefore must be opposed and their views censored and suppressed.

Which is why they have and had slogans such as “No platform for our opponents,” “Never forgive, never forget,” and “the Holocaust cannot be questioned or doubted,” and why they have fabricated causal abstractions – categories, new transgressions – to describe and label their opponents and the writings, deeds, and speech of their opponents, and campaign to have those deemed to belong to such categories, or who may have committed such transgressions, publicly shamed, deprived of their livelihood, arrested, and imprisoned.

Such new causal abstractions, such new transgressions, such modern heresies, include believing in or affirming the inequality of human races, wanting to live among people of their own race and culture, “hate speech”, “racism”, questioning or doubting holocaustianity (13} – “holocaust denial” – questioning or doubting “nazi crimes”, and believing that fascism and/or National Socialism contained or may have contained some good ideas.

This demonizing of enemies, this fabrication of abstractions, this desire to censor and suppress the views of their enemies, is redolent of the Magian ethos and its penchant for denouncing and persecuting those deemed, by some authority or by some person or persons, to be heretics, and it is no coincidence that the modern manifestation of the Magian ethos that is the anti-fascist movement is derived from Marxist-Leninism and the violent, hate-fuelled, intolerant religious-type and often communist resistance to the rise of fascism and National-Socialism. {14}

Given the Magian ethos, it is also no coincidence that the anti-fascists who fabricated their own “evil, dangerous” version of the O9A – and their fellow-travellers who spread and who are spreading that fictional version of the O9A, are mostly hypocrites: intolerant of and biased toward those persons or causes or groups they deem to be their enemies while at the same time preaching about tolerance, equality, and about the need to be fair-minded. It is this intolerance, this bias, which makes them propagate the fictional anti-fascist version of the O9A and also makes them not bother with their own scholarly – detailed, unbiased – research about the O9A since, for them, anti-fascist propaganda, rumours, and some out-of-context or manufactured or wrongly attributed quotations will usually suffice.

Yet – as our esoteric, Aeonic, ω9α, perspective informs us – the anti-fascist movement of our times, with its Magian ethos, its hypocrites, its righteous believers, its fakers, its hatred and intolerance, will no doubt change, evolve, and in the not too distant future will cease to exist. Just like another modern manifestation of the Magian ethos, the Soviet Union, ceased to exist despite its repression and fabricated abstractions and despite its persecution of those who were, in every-way but name, heretics. Similarly, older manifestations of the Magian ethos such as Judeo-Christianity, changed, evolved, manifested multiple new forms, and has even begun to manifest a certain tolerance as it declines toward its inevitable death about two hundred years from now.

Our esoteric, Aeonic, ω9α, perspective also informs us that, as Rachael Stirling recently wrote:

“In a century, all current anti-O9A propagandists will be dead, just as a government which may have passed some law banning some mythic, phantom, non-existent, group they named as the O9A, will be different, changed, if such governments and such countries as they governed – such causal constructs – will still exist a century from now.

But the presencing of the acausal that is currently known and named as “the O9A”, as “the order of nine angles”, as “the order of the nine angles” will still exist, be it under those denotata or some other denotata, and be it an evolution, by some of those who presence it, of what is now known under such names […]

So we who adhere to, who now represent, the resurgence of the hermetic ancient way to Lapis Philosophicus currently known under such a denotatum as the O9A, smile in our pagan knowing way at the causal machinations and propaganda and lies and polemics of zealous anti-O9A propagandists and their followers.” {15}

Book Review: Feond, and Baeldraca

Posted: September 4th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Howard Stanton Levey, Inner ONA, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Book Review: Feond, and Baeldraca

Baeldraca Book

°°°°°°°°°

Feond: Order Of Nine Angles – Toward Internal Adept,
2019, 110 pages, ISBN 978-1687255624

Baeldraca: Order Of Nine Angles,
2019, 105 pages, ISBN 978-1689931953

With the publication in 2019 of two printed books about the O9A – Feond, and Baeldraca – the public profile of the O9A is taken to the “next level”. A level beyond the type of satanism and the neo-nazi occultism that the O9A is, rightly or wrongly, notorious for, and thus beyond the texts contained in much earlier books such as Naos, The Black Book of Satan, and Hostia.

The new books, which compliment each other, contain a selection of post-2012 texts which deal with O9A occultism and traditions, and the knowledge and the understanding expected of the O9A Internal Adept, the stage – on the O9A Seven Fold Way – beyond the early stages of Initiate and External Adept and which early stages books such as Hostia deal with.

Most of the knowledge imparted in the two hundred or so pages of these new books will be unfamiliar to those students of the occult, and to academics, who have concentrated on studying the Qabalah based and “goetic” traditions of the Hermetic Order Of The Golden Dawn and of the likes of Mr Aleister Crowley and Michael Aquino. The knowledge will also be unfamiliar to those who follow or who study the modern ‘satanism’ of showman Howard Stanton Levey, better known under his alias of Anton LaVey.

The post-2012 texts will also disappoint those who expect to find ‘satanic rituals’ or heretical diatribes, for when not eruditely informing readers about obscure occult topics – such as sorcery in Virgil’s Aeneid, or the Greek origin of the name Baphomet – the texts deal with esoteric philosophy and how O9A esotericism and methods are related to Hellenic and Hermetic mysticism, to Renaissance alchemy, and to the neglected paganism of a septenary anados or quest. That most of the texts includes copious footnotes containing references to other O9A texts and to works such as the Corpus Hermeticum, will also deter many readers.

In consequence the books are niche products and well express the pagan, classical, Western, notion of καλὸς κἀγαθός which, as texts such as the one titled Appreciating καλὸς κἀγαθός and the O9A in the Feond book describe, could be considered to reveal the type of personal character which it is one of the main aims of the O9A Seven Fold Way to encourage and create.

Which character is the opposite of the egoistic type encouraged by the likes of Crowley, by Levey and by modern practitioners of a Hebrew indebted qabalistic Left Hand Path. A difference that Anton Long and those of the “inner O9A” {1} have pointed out many times before and after 2012. {2}

In regard to satanism and neo-nazism, the text The Alleged National Socialism Of The O9A in the Feond book references neglected explanations by “Anton Long” in the early 1990s. Which explanations are that both satanism and neo-nazism are considered to be causal forms, ideas, which could be used to achieve certain Aeonic – “sinister” – goals or which can be useful as Insight Roles, as learning experiences, by the Initiate or the External Adept.
“To achieve the strategic goals, certain tactics have to be used. This means involvement ‘in the world’ by some individuals/members – for instance, the disruption of society, the creation/manipulation of certain forms.” {3}

To conclude, the books will be useful not only to those, such as students of the occult and academics, who seek to understand the O9A, its traditions and occult roots and how it differs from other modern occult groups and movements, but also to those who have begun their own anados, their own journey, or who are considering making such a journey, along the difficult, the dangerous, O9A Seven Fold Way

They are all personally known to each other and have an established tradition of meeting every three or so years at a Sunedrion, often at Oxford following the end of Trinity Term.

Anti-O9A Propaganda Exposed

Anti-O9A Propaganda Exposed
(pdf)

Since the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) publicly and controversially emerged on the Occult scene in the 1980s – with its affirmation that human sacrifice was part of traditional Satanism, and with its Mass Of Heresy in praise of Hitler – many self-professed modern ‘satanists’ (who follow the modern materialistic, law-abiding, ‘satanism’ developed by Howard Stanton Levey, aka Anton LaVey) and many self-professed followers of the modern, kabbalah indebted, Left Hand Path invented by the likes of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and Aquino’s Temple of Set, have spread propaganda and lies about the O9A.

For the fact is that the O9A presented “a dangerous and extreme form of Satanism” {1} and directly challenged both the modern materialistic ‘satanism’ developed by Levey and the modern, kabbalah indebted, Left Hand Path with its Hebrew Otz Chim.

Thus it is not surprising that the anti-O9A crowd, following or indebted to or inspired by Levey-type ‘satanism’ – or following or indebted to or inspired by a kabbalah indebted Left Hand Path – would spread such propaganda and lies about the O9A.

For O9A folk were – in all but name – modern Occult heretics, given their promotion of National Socialism, given their holocaust denial, given their affirmation of the necessity of human sacrifice; given their tough physical challenges such as spending at least three months living alone in the wilderness; and given their practical Insight Roles lasting around a year whose “sinister-numinous” options included being an assassin or a burglar or a monk or a medic or a police officer.

O9A folk were also heretical in terms of their Occult philosophy, promoting a septenary system in place of the accepted Hebrew Otz Chim with its ten-fold sephera (a Hebrew system used by all non-o9a modern Occultists) and claiming that their septenary system represented the genuine Western Occult tradition and pre-dated the Hebrew Otz Chim by centuries.

We present here a few of the most popular propaganda statements made, and lies spread, about the O9A by the anti-O9A crowd, together with the “heretical reality” which debunks each of those propaganda statements and lies.

°°°°°°°

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.
