The Nine "Satanic Statements" of the Church of Satan revisited
Here are 9 simple statements I'm sure you've read (on second thought, maybe
you never read them; in which case, I listed them). Anton LaVey made them.
But did you READ them? They are, indeed, simple statements and I have to seriously
wonder who doesn't already know all of it if their IQ is over 50 and they are
able to read words.
They are as simple, if not simpler, than the colorful way one might define
something that one must be able to FEEL in order to grasp. The point is that
everyone does these things in these statements, whether or not they admit
they do these things. Apparently LaVey, when writing them, was obsessed with
the fact that people did these things but then lied about doing them. He called
it "Christian" hypocrisy. Christian? A simpler way to say that is, "they lie
about things they do." The majority of his writings seem to Will-Focus on the
herd and their doings and hypocrisies. Some of us don't tend to notice that
or care about it, our Wills are not Focused on other people's business unless
something catches our eye in the positive sense and looks like FUN.
And so my question is this: why would a person on the Left Hand Path be concerned
about what other people do, don't do, or lie about doing? Did LaVey enjoy "indulging"
in grouching about other people that he shouldn't have been concerned about?
Well, Christians are concerned about that too: you see, lying is "wrong" or,
ahem, it's a sin. So it's established that both the Christians and the LaVeyans
care about people lying about what they do. OK.
This all has absolutely nothing to do with the Dark Force, Black Flame, or
the solitary Left Hand Path that only the individual can be on. You can't share
such a path with anyone else - and there are no rules or dogmas that can possibly
be applied to The Path One is On.
Well, here are these 9 statements again with some comments from me, which will
show anyone with a keen sense of savvy that the entire point of these are moot.
NO ONE "obeys" them just as Christians don't "obey" their commandments or rules.
NO ONE. LaVey himself didn't. His followers (heh, followers?) break every single
one of these on a daily basis. The entirety of these are written TO the herd,
focused ON the herd, like so much preaching. Ooops, the herd might not be paying
attention, tish tish!. Does anyone on the Left Hand Path CARE? If so, then they
are overstepping their own boundaries and butting into the business of others.
Heh, deeds and actions prove that these LaVeyans and similar types "into Satan"
are the first to CARE about what others think, how others change their opinions
with the flux of reality, they even care about what others eat or enjoy watching
for entertainment! They CARE. They aren't even on the Right Hand Path. They
If you want to know what the Dark Tradition says SATAN represents, see below
after this article. What we say SATAN represents has nothing whatsoever to do
with the "herd."
LaVey said Satan represents: (it's in quotes):
"1. Indulgence instead of abstinence."
Do you know what abstinence is? Gotta diet, don't eat that. Don't smoke. Don't
drink. Don't eat meat. Don't make love. Don't dance. Don't sing. Don't talk
loud. Don't laugh. Don't play. Don't be rude. Above all don't be rude, be polite
and kow-tow to lies. CENSOR yourself, GAG yourself lest you speak from your
HEART some undefiled truth or REAL FEELING. KILL your feelings, DENY them. DENY
the flesh but strive and strive to be something else. ALL of that is abstinence
a/k/a "the repression of the heart." Let Christian or other inquisitors in your
families, in society, lord it over you with rubbish "questions" as they PRETEND
they are actually asking a question they WANT the answer to. NO, they don't
want the answer, they just want to JUDGE you and make you have to JUSTIFY YOURSELF
to them or at least try to make you FEEL THE NEED to justify yourself or your
feelings or opinions (which might change from day to day since LIFE is all about
change) when you have only TOLD THE TRUTH about something that you think or
feel: That's TABOO in society. "Mom, that food tastes like SHIT, ptewy!" Letting
them get away with this is a form of abstinence!
Do you know what indulgence is? Indulgence is the REFUSAL to let ANYONE do
this to you, to REFUSE to censor yourself or straight-jacket your opinions,
to SPEAK from the heart, to DO what you feel and want. THAT is indulgence. It
is a LACK of judging oneself like the dualists tend to do. Indulgence is BEING.
It is not BEING LIKED. IT IS LIKING TO BE!! INDULGE MEANS: I LIKE, I WANT, I
DO, and it is also I DO NOT LIKE, I DO NOT WANT, THEREFORE I DO NOT DO. It's
Peer group pressure? This term means nothing to a natural born Satanist and
by that I mean a person innately on the Left Handed Path (I definitely do NOT
mean anyone in these satanic organizations who are all about peer group pressure!).
There are no peers. It ONLY works on ABSTAINERS. THINK IN THE INNER way about
this. Peer groups get you to abstain from BEING YOURSELF! You do the "in thing"
for the group (no matter what the group is), no matter if you FEEL like NOT
doing it. That's abstinence too, in an inner sense.
Now, the problem is this: People in LaVeyan type organizations, example, often
abstain from eating foods they might love to eat; they abstain because they
are obese. Therefore they are indulging in their diets. Heh. Abstaining IS
a form of indulgence, in every respect. A thief might abstain from stealing
food for his starving family if he is AFRAID to get caught. That's not abstaining;
that's fear of the law; he is indulging in keeping himself out of jail. People
who claim they abstain, but indulge in secret - well, that's nobody's business
what they do, right? Right! Obviously, they are acting the role of abstainer
for other people to see for some purpose that obviously gains them something.
They are indulging in being an exhibitionist abstainer. Why would LaVeyans preach
to them or care? Christians care because it's a spiritual matter to them and
involved their religious rules. All of this is outer behavior.
"2. Vital Existence instead of spiritual pipe-dreams."
Do you know what Vital existence is? The 2 point up star is a glyph for this.
It means LIBERATION, it means normal kundalini flow and release. It means VITALITY,
the physical quality of BEING VITAL AND WHOLE.
Do you know what a pipe-dream is? Fake belief in disembodied entities out there.
Fake creators of man. Fake idealized states of being, like kingdom of god or
various other-earthly ideas where you are no longer a body but just a disembodied
mind. It means a pipe dream, a wannabe, a LIE and a "robe" you wear while you
PRETEND to be what you ARE NOT, pretend to know things you KNOW NOTHING about
It is belief grounded not on TRUTH, but on a fantasy that society calls a "religion"
or "faith." Spiritual pipe-dreams cover a lot of things. Some religions have
MORE pipe-dreams than others. But the definition, even here, is confusing and
misleading - it has to be qualified.
The problem here is that "spiritual pipe dreaming" doesn't mean having a laid-back
belief or even convinced Gnosis, in a Divine Hand or Deity or "something like
that" because you sincerely DO see it in nature everywhere, or sincerely feel
it within. It's more or less the DESIRE FOR "something other" due to life being
not so good. A pipe dream is also where a person is "gonna do" something, and
it's usually something he is never going to do and can't do. Big Plans. Big
Ideas. They all fall to nothing for pipe dreamers. Pipe dreaming is desiring
some Big Parent Up there who's going to come and FIX things (for you,
of course) or get rid of your enemies like some goody goody or bad-assed Superhero
"3. Undefiled Wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit."
Undefiled Wisdom or Inner Truth is knowing the HARD TRUTH about yourself, without
the bullshit or facades or pretends. I.e., if you are STUPID, then RECOGNIZE
IT. It's also the ability to "see through" propaganda, especially the type put
forth by the media and government and consumerist crap.
Hypocritical self-deceit? It's when you claim to be something you are NOT and
you BELIEVE IT YOURSELF. Lots of neo-satanists in the "rebellion phase" and
stuck in this phase are doing self-deceit LOUDLY. When you lie to another person
and deceive THEM, this is OK! It's a viable evolutionary strategy! EVERYONE
does it! When you deceive yourself, you are schizoid OR WORSE. Hypocritical
deceit is just what Oral Roberts did when he announced on TV, "Give me millions
or God will kill me." Well, he got his millions, people gave it to him of their
own free will. That's free choice. But hypocritical SELF deceit is when e.g.,
you claim to be in favor of Freedom of Speech and yet are your OWN inner censor,
you cry over rude words that might "hurt someone's feelings" even though the
words are true, or at least a truthful OPINION you have. Such a person IS NOT
and CAN NOT BE in favor of Free Speech because they do not even PRACTICE IT.
They deceive themselves in thinking they are for it. It is deceiving yourself
to be ANYTHING you are not. Such people tend to go into ballistic reaction mode
when someone who really knows something comes around and smashes their little
fortress of lies. Then they can be seen to go into self-destructive behavior
and also retreat to their old faith: BELIEF in lies despite evidence to the
contrary (or they join neo-Satan organizations that are all about nothing).
Self-deceit is a tall subject because 99% of the CULTURAL Christian world LIVES
AND BREATHES in a Sea of Lies: their own culture. They are not self-aware enough
to even know that they deceive themselves. They are the ENEMIES of self sincerity
inside their own selves. Hypocritical self-deceit, example, is the fool screaming
about "sexual freedom and rights" when he never even GOT OFF! Such a confused,
obscured person really has another agenda aside from "FREEDOM TO WORK if you
are sexually different." Who would know about his personal crap if he didn't
blab it all over to UNinterested others? His agenda has more to do with ACCEPTENCE
BY OTHERS since he obviously does not accept himself. You can spot them: they'd
try to PREACH this bullshit to people who have been HAVING SEX quite naturally
since they were 13 years old or so. This is hypocritical SELF-deceit. This is
not the same thing as a hypocrite! SELF-deceit is not the same as deceiving
others. LaVey apparently thought that people going to the Christian meetings
he indulged in watching and writing about, were deceiving themselves. Um: NO!
"4. Kindness to those who deserve it, instead of love wasted on ingrates."
Yes, people are often raised by FIENDS and told that this is love: so they
grow up in this way. They automatically are chummy with scum. Like the "girlfriend"
who does you a "favor" and gets you some crack cocaine when you are pregnant.
They think this is a "friend." They don't recognize real kindness: they react
to it as if the person is either an enemy to fear or a doormat to be walked
on. We who are not like this KNOW what this statement means. It doesn't NEED
explanation. But to the damaged (so many of whom flock into Satan organizations
that have nothing but other omega wolves in them wanting to HURT someone or
bully them) the concept of kindness or joy is unfathomable. They grow up loving
or WANTING TO LOVE parents or spouses or siblings or even schoolmates that any
healthy normal animal would want to SHOOT in vengeance instead. The peculiar
thing is that most people from such abusive situations (any kind of repetitive
abuse and from anyone) run away from it by joining abusive organizations where
they are, once again, told what to do. They run away from gloom and ugliness
and do so by running into WORSE gloom and ugliness, and the fools think it's
satanic. Well, BOTH are satanic in the Webster's Dictionary sense and in the
Biblical sense. (Look up Stockholm Syndrome.) They are apt to see Pinhead of
Hellraiser as a cool character, yet they are incapable of seeing him as the
same as what caused them to run to him - an asshole out to hurt people; they
are incapable of seeing him as the Ultimate Tortured Jesus.
The statement about Love is almost different as one can be kind WITHOUT feeling
love. A government spy can be kind to an enemy in order to obtain information.
One can be kind to a total stranger simply out of animal-human decency. Love
is a FEELING, it shines out of the heart area in a gentle way, like sunshine.
It doesn't feel like anything to BE loved, but it feels like JOY TO love someone
OR something. Love comes all of a sudden, and it goes just as suddenly. Normal
healthy people would just let it go when it's gone and not try to FORCE something
to exist when it's gone. When you do that, Love turns to obligation and then
to hate. In the world there is a lot of love/hate. And we see love/hate is really
HATE, not love. Love is writing a song you are inspired to write. Love is sharing
it with another who liked it too. Love is NOT a bond of clinging as if you are
half a person NEEDING another half. No: that is more a war of Wills because
two people are TWO PEOPLE, not ONE.
Love is something klippoths CRAVE, whether it's "divine" love or love of others.
I see they HAVE NO love WITHIN them, not for anything including themselves.
And that is WHY they are kind to enemies and treat others who are truly kind
like doormats. Love has many forms and English is not adequate to define it.
There is the love of a thing or of knowledge, there is kinship love, mother
love which is more of an instinct and quite different, love of an area (feeling
at-home, more like territorial feelings), love of a mate (I don't mean lust,
which is felt in the LOINS). Love is felt in the HEART area of the body, in
Kindness can be called compassion and is more like empathy. Christians preach
this, but most of them have ONLY malice and feel good only when they can pretend
to lord it over another, which they do out of inner weakness; they love to "find
sinners and bully or harass them." Many neo-Satanists also do this, they delight
in ganging up on anyone that is "not like them." LaVeyans have done this for
decades against other Satanic organizations, including those that ignored them!
"5. Vengeance instead of turning the other cheek."
Yes. SMASH. We all know what vengeance is and what it feels like to want to
GET IT. It is something any wild animal feels. There is nothing sociopathic
about it except in a sick, decadent society where laws are made to protect abject
scum. They get by with impunity, mouthing off, ripping off, as of old, but when
the other side is given the freedom to GET EVEN they pass laws against it. Well,
some animals don't care about that! When you taunt a wild animal that was never
tamed enough (civilized?), it might GO AFTER you and rip off your head. Animals
in zoos have been known to do this: it's natural. People, after reading "Toxic
Parents," did what the book said and confronted their TOXIC parents. Result:
a lot of parents ended up being killed by their kids. Our kind would have EXPECTED
"Turning the other cheek" is when you chicken out and then pretend that you
are "above it all." Or it's something Christian parents have preached to their
kids as the kids got tormented and bullied in schools on a daily basis. In reality
this self-deceit FESTERS and poisons the emotions. I.e., they know they aren't
"above striking back;" they know they are AFRAID to strike back. Often people
attempt to "try to like" the HATED ENEMY in an attempt to NOT FEEL these festering
emotions. Nope: it doesn't work. Turning the other cheek is an inward thing
and NOT DOING that doesn't have to mean you have to get physical vengeance:
just SPEAK OUT AND SHOUT IT, at least don't pretend to YOURSELF. Otherwise,
if you really don't want to get even, it's not turning the cheek then,
it's indulging in not caring! As one Satanist I know said, you can throw a curse
on a person, no need for violence and trouble with the law. Well... to one grown
in an inner city WITH violence, that doesn't sound like something carnal enough....
Even when the curse WORKS, it STILL doesn't feel quite as good as physically
smashing the shit out of the enemy, with your bare hands! Once that's done,
you REALLY don't care about it anymore: the feeling is GONE FOR GOOD.
Hmm, some might say that wrongs were done to LaVey, at least he FELT that he
was wronged - but the fact of the matter is, he never got vengeance at all.
He walled himself up like a monk instead, and his followers spoke up or encouraged
others to jump into the "holy war." None of it was physical or real.
"6. Responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires."
Yes, it's why I refuse to give references when it is clear the person asking
for them doesn't want them, give them direction on what books to study to KNOW
what they CLAIM THEY WANT TO KNOW and they don't read them, but instead vampirize
my time asking me over and over again the same question. LaVeyans do that a
lot. "But WHY did you blah blah" and WHY did you blah blah." Answered 10 times.
Are they that stupid? Yes. Or the type that wants the personal attention on
his "problem" and the answer is all too simple. But they do not just do it,
they stall, meander, and want to TALK ABOUT IT MORE. This is like mental masturbation
on YOUR TIME. They want you to PAY ATTENTION to them, NOTICE that they exist.
I let some do this to see them doing it (study it) and then SHOW THEM what they
are DOING: true to form, they often turn ostrich and rationalize their meandering.
When told later on to "fuck off" they obsess and "flame me," and even creatively
invent stories about me - and they do this for years of their own time (what
a waste of time!). They did it to others too. Some realize what they are doing.
Marsh explained psychic vampires from another direction in his article "Klippoth
versus Loners" on www.apodion.com/vad/
Share what you have with those you like who ARE responsible and who REALLY
want it for self edification or enjoyment: it's easy to tell that kind apart
from the lonely klippoths looking for attention and ASKING for things. Genuine
people usually have things of their own to SHARE BACK with you that they produce
from not loneliness, but a full rich heart; they usually have their OWN JOY
OF LIFE and things in common TO share. The psychic black hole has NOTHING inside
to share. Giving things to such a black hole empty person is like throwing it
in the garbage. However if one of them feels inclined to shower you with gifts,
by all means, TAKE THEM - they are free. You owe them nothing, especially if
they offered and you didn't ask for anything.
"7. Man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those
that walk on all fours, who, because of his "divine spiritual and intellectual
development," has become the most vicious animal of all."
Note the quotations LaVey uses. I.e., there is no "divine" spiritual or intellectual
development in man at all. I wonder how many lost sight of those quotes. LaVey
put them in there. Anatomical and neurological knowledge of man's brain shows
that it is just like any other mammal-animal's and there is nothing odd or strange
about it (except for the miswired brains found by neurology that now tells us
WHY some people think up pipe-dreams no matter what they think of and are NOT
ABLE to grasp any kind of truth, and why others, even when SHOWN what they are
doing, are "unable to know" or anosognosic). This type tends to BE dualists.
By that I mean schizoid. Alexithymic. Anosognosic. Man is biologically exactly
like any other animal (we are human animals) but few people have grown up freely
in society wherein this nature was ALLOWED to bloom or grow naturally and NORMALLY.
They are like damaged people and many such people flock to "other worldly" organized
religions. (This is not to say that all organized religion is about other worldly
things! Only a dualist would misread it that way!) They are unable to get a
clue into themselves even when SHOWN. They all try to squirm out of it or make
up excuses no matter how you nail them down. Neurologists found this too in
their schizoid patients and the more schizoid they are, the more they do this.
They also notoriously ego-project. Another word for what they are is HIGHLY
REPRESSED to the point that they have become their own oppressors, or they pay
to join organizations where they are dictated to (hierarchical organizations
that even claim to be dictatorships!). They are their own INNER enemy: example
would be a person who is "an enemy" who tells me he is going to do a crime or
did one and then WORRIES that I'll turn him in! Why did he tell me? Or a person
who claims to have had a war with some enemy and who never imagines that I might
ASK that enemy about it. Then if the person lied, well, if the enemy never heard
of him before, he will surely know about him NOW! Why did he invent this lie
and TELL ME? He is his own enemy. Normal animals don't tend to do things like
that. Rats don't deliberately catch themselves in traps and, after catching
ONE rat, it is near impossible to catch ANY OTHERS in that same trap. But rats
infected with parasites often DO begin to like the smell of cats and walk to
up to cats that promptly eat them! The parasites make the rats behave in a neurologically
deranged manner. In all outward appearances, this rat is behaving like a non-rat,
or a klippothic rat.
The problem with this is that there is something that is definitely non-animal
in things some humans do (and not klippothic either), since no other animal
that we are aware of does such things and we can't know what the 99%
extinct animals did. Animals, all of them, do have culture, society (group,
collective, hive, or solitary), strategies and even technology of a type and
MOST human endeavors are analogous; they are human-ANIMAL based technologies.
All of it is based in what they can know from their own beings, their own bodies
and in choices they make in adaptation. For instance, dolphins use sonar more
advanced than anything humans have- but dolphins don't build it, they have it
in their brains to be used; so they use it. Just like we use our opposable fingered,
highly dexterous hands because we HAVE hands. There is a fine line to be drawn
to make the distinction between biologically based animal behavior and things
that are not, which humans do. Humans have been shown to have been capable of
making technology that is wholly outside their biology - they are inspired,
they get an insight from SOMEWHERE and some of these people who got these insights
outright said it came from "not themselves!". Ramanujan, the 20th
century's greatest mathematician, is one example and he clearly stated this.
His calculations were provable, empirical facts! In the Hellenic, this was known
as Daimonic - or genius. But is this good for the human species in the end?
So far, it's not since it causes environmental problems - but we have only seen
the effects of this THUS FAR. (I.e., will global warming be good for humans
and cause, perhaps, a new mutation or adaptation? We don't know, not YET!) At
the time the inventions are created, they seem very good. As time passes, they
turn out to be quite bad. To make it as distinct as I can: making a house, storing
food, even writing things down, are all within our biological/animal nature
to do. We have the bodily parts that just tend to DO such things - so some humans
(not all) adopt these things, preserve them and they become part of a culture.
But getting the idea to turn a solid metal into a liquid and then alloy it in
a precise manner with another metal is not within our biological natures to
do. It's something else. Using petroleum to make plastic is another example
of non-animal behavior. USING spoons or something else to eat food is animal.
But making plastic spoons or sterling silver spoons, or stainless steel spoons
is not. Not even remotely! Aside from that, "humans as a species" do not do
such things or invent such things. VERY FEW humans do this! The rest just do
what monkeys do: copy it. Use it.
ALL animals become destructive, mean-spirited and even self-destructive when
there is OVERPOPULATOIN. Man is no exception.
"8. Satan represents all the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical,
mental or emotional gratification. "
This is a tricky one for those of us who have a whole other category of sins
that are not related to the Three Monotheistic Religions. If I were to take
that at face value, I'd read that as, "LaVey wants you to be Ignorant, and thinks
that Ignorance will call gratification," since Ignorance is the first and biggest
SIN in my culture! LaVey wants you to be a WIMP, too, he thinks wimps will receive
gratification. That's another SIN in my culture. Nah, I don't think he meant
What is LaVey calling "sins?" Oh, I see: CHRISTIAN STUFF! So then, he wrote
this FOR Christians who'd be familiar with this stuff. Why, of course he did!
Every theologian that ever read his stuff knows this (and dismisses it). OK:
Murder is a sin in Christianity, "thou shalt not kill." Well, with their Onward
Christian Soldiers and Children's Crusades and Inquisition I used to think that
murder, cultural genocide and even genocide was a VIRTUE in the Christian religion,
part of their "Manifest Destiny Ordained by their God": like: kill people to
hurry them into the Kingdom, or something like that?
When you want vengeance, well... it sure would feel good to beat the bastard
gone. Christians, in deeds in history, are the most vengeful people on the planet,
maybe equal to the Moslems. Jews have "an eye for an eye." They believe in vengeance.
Let's see "thou shalt not kill." Jews distinguish between killing and murder
when they say that in their own expanded version.
OK, "You should not, or thou shalt not steal." That's one of those commandments.
Theft is a sin too but hunger is a good incentive to steal food if you can't
get it otherwise. In such a situation, is the hungry, potential thief to blame
or is the garbage economic system to blame? Blame blame blame, blame the devil!
Another sin: "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live." Well, seems to me that
the LaVeyans feel the same way - they are very hateful toward Wicca.
And so forth. Sorry, I don't know the other Christian sins and am seriously
too lazy to go look them up and not sure where I'd find them - they're not on
Page One of their Bible; that's where I looked. OH, I remember a few, "don't
adulterate" (in the Hebrew that means to not make their tribe members impure
by mixing), and don't worship idols. Oh, does it cause gratification to adulterate
things or worship idols? Maybe. Whatever. Christians have been adulterating
for centuries, even by raping people in foreign nations, probably because they
don't know what the Hebrew meaning is.
I can assure the reader that LaVey NEVER went and broke all those Christian
sins because our laws (in fact, MOST laws of most lands, even non-Christians
lands), have incorporated most of them into law, e.g., stealing, murder, laws
against doing that, and religious intolerance in many places, too - these days
that might take the form of "Thou shalt not suffer a Fundamentalist Moslem to
live?". LaVey wasn't telling anyone to go out and break the laws of the country,
most of which are founded on the Three Monotheisms anyway. Though, on seriously
looking at deeds, one has to wonder about what LaVey encourages his clubbies
to do, when LaVey "dictates" to his club members to behave like a den of ravening
wolves and go after anti-LaVeyans like Waffen SS Storm Troopers would: is that
en enjoinder to murder people? Some might think it is and they do threaten people.
Oddly, when others threaten them back, they whine to the skies about it. (They
should be reminded that the Red Army smashed the Storm Troopers. HA HA metaphor).
They never go after Christians or seriously anti-Satanic groups. They go after
OTHER Satanic organizations, or they get their non-member supporters to do it.
So we have to figure out what LaVey meant by all this sin bullshit. ....
Aha! I got it! He meant the SO-CALLED Christian sins that have NOTHING TO DO
with the law, like greed, lust and other things he spelled out in the Satanic
Bible in an effort to turn the Christian sins upside down. Wait, Christians
practice greed to a great extent (they absolutely love capitalism!) and lust
doesn't seem to bother them either so long as they do various taboo forms of
it in secret. (Too bad he didn't know what the original Greek for these "sins"
were. Too bad the Christians don't know it either! HAH! Now that I DO know:
"Another Look at Christianity" - read it.)
Sure some of these things, interpreted in street talk and used tongue-in-cheek,
feel good sometimes. We'd more likely say that feelings of wanting vengeance
means that someone already messed with you. This is a great disturbance of one's
inner peace and we'd rather NOT indulge in that garbage unless necessary - as
a CHORE. Organized Religions are preeminent joy-killers and what's insidious
about them is that, once they've de-humanized your animal nature, you tend to
perpetuate the repression against yourself when the authority is long gone;
or you replace the old authority with a new one and even pay him to be your
dictator. Or you might delude yourself into getting into "sexual freedom movements"
and preach the CHORE of sex while you never even get off. Don't think this is
just about sex. It's not. These preachy idiots are unable to even be aware of
naturally FREER PEOPLE all around them that IGNORE them, yet at the same time,
they are VERY aware of them on some level.
" 9. Satan has been the best friend the church has ever had, as he has kept
it in business all these years."
So then, LaVey intended to do the Fundamentalists and the Pope a BIG FAVOR?
Um, was he paid by them to do this? Good question! This statement needs
an update. WHICH CHURCH is this Webster's Dictionary Satan a friend to? Well,
this can't mean the Jewish Temple because they don't have a devil. And it can't
mean Eastern clans or cults or Islam because they don't have this idea either.
Islam tends to use "Great Satan" to mean the U.S.A. It can't mean Hindus because
almost all the Hindu "deities" are viewed as Devils, more or less. So then,
it means the Christians, their churches.
These 9 statements, in my opinion can't be read in isolation as if they are
split off from each other. They form ONE BIG PICTURE of a thing to grasp and
the thing being grasped is extremely simple. People already do all those things,
whether they admit it or not. LaVey's concern seems to be the same as
the Christian concern: people do these things and then LIE about it. Yeah, so
what? What has this got to do with the Left Handed Solitary Path? Nothing.
Let's look at these statements then, and make Something of it: One can see
A KIND of natural animal. The description, except for the last statement about
"churches," applies to every single animal on earth, including worms, insects,
sea life, etc. They don't tend to INVENT pipe dream sick-houses like churches
nor do they set up shops where lies and fantasies can be sold to pipe-dreamers
(consumer suckers included). But the other statements literally DO apply to
every single living thing on the planet.
These statements FLOW INTO each other and on a very high level they are all
like ONE STATEMENT since the fully liberated person automatically IS all these
things and the repressed types automatically are the ENEMIES of it, despite
the "movements" they get into where they try to deny they are enemies of it.
E.g.: The person who can't even speak from his own heart CAN NOT BE for free
speech. It's not possible.
Where LaVey, on page 16, bottom of page, said: "The DEVIL was much MORE THAN
JUST that (anti Christianity, anthropomorphic devil: things LaVey cites as having
happened in the past). Satan represented a dark, HIDDEN FORCE IN NATURE that
was responsible (A CAUSAL AGENT) for the workings of earthly affairs for which
science and religion had no explanation and no control." He then goes on to
explain how he felt it first in small ways. Yes, but his organization is not
the organization that has any information on this Dark Force in Nature. The
SR organization has ALL the information on it. WE ARE THE DARK DOCTRINE ORG!
And it's the only org in the world that explains it "for Satanists" in
a very pure form.
What LaVey was talking about is NORMAL ANIMAL NATURE which, indeed, the ENEMY
has called "of Satan" in Christian religion.
All we did was show that science SURELY DOES have a kind of explanation, even
a formula, for this Dark Force. Anton LaVey may have felt it once, but he didn't
really know anything about it, and this HIDDEN FORCE doesn't JUST affect earthly
affairs (that's why we called it COSMOCRATOR). And we named this force: That
Which causes entropy and more, much more. We explain all aspects of it. We showed
that OH YES, the Christians (some authorities, like Augustine) SURELY DID define
this: their scholars described it by telling us WHAT THE DEVIL DOES IN NATURE
as LORD OF THIS WORLD according to their view. They must have ALSO felt it to
be able to have described it so well, and yet they hardly knew what ANY KIND
of force was. They know this force as THE THING THEY FEEL AT ODDS WITH!! Consider
that! They feel at odds with: LIFE!
On a much higher level of "clarity" there is much to say about the interwovenness
of these 9 statements; though the LaVeyans didn't say it. I'm saying it.
People misread these statements while other normal healthy types wonder what
they could mean because they are just too obvious, too simple. A normal animal
or person understands the most simple of things: "I LIKE, I WANT, I DO," or
"I DO NOT LIKE, DO NOT WANT, DO NOT DO." This is not even something we have
to THINK ABOUT: it's so automatic it is INSTINCT. E.g., food tastes bad? SPIT
IT OUT. When you eat it in order to please another, that is a TYPE of abstinence
or self-effacement that klippoths all do, but this is something that animals
CAN NOT do and WOULD NOT do unless they were forced. So who's forcing
humans to do it? Being forced would lead to a desire to get vengeance, by any
means necessary - and here comes the rebel. And so these statements mean a whole
other thing when you REALLY read them in the inner and real sense.
We creative healthy animals tend to TALK creatively. Others take their FAITH
seriously and don't have a creative bone in their dead, stiff bodies. Other
types often try to create new "mystery" religions with "dark words" for the
concepts. Most of them are inversionist Christians. Devil Worshipers. Some of
them are "tee hee PEE PEE tee hee" idiots that think they can "shock the herd"
because they were REJECTED by the herd that they wanted so much to be a part
of. Others are into "BOO." Well, heh, non-existent vampires and werewolves and
demonic images are not scary when there are real live terrorists out there that
have weapons of mass destruction. BOO!
The 1966 COS was fond of saying that EVIL was LIVE spelled backwards. True.
It is. And the word VILE is an anagram for the word LIVE. So they aspire to
be Biblical or Webster's Dictionary Satanists? Yes, they sure do - take a look
at them! They often dress in the attire of the Catholic Priest and speak in
But what IS evil for real, as defined by people really from genuinely LHP cultures
out there? This isn't something that most neo-Satanist even think about, especially
since it was done to them, repeatedly, in their lives and especially since they
perpetuate it and do it to others.
EVIL: That which makes you WEAK.
--Third Level Clarity Freemason, Nietzsche.
EVIL: That which seeks to come between the heart and what it loves.
--Fourth or Fifth Level Clarity Mason, Goethe, Amalia Lodge
EVIL: That which takes an Innocent living-creature of nature, born with a wonderment
at life and born with perfect instincts, and turns that creature against itself
completely, severing it from its own inborn nature and instilling in it a malice
for everything alive and happy. Then the Dark Flame of Life which is JOY, inverts
and becomes Fear of its own Being, and what their Being is becomes a hopeless
mystery they must then seek infinitely and never have the satisfaction of understanding.

COMPOUNDED EVIL: Ignorance and Arrogance
WHAT WE SAY:
THE NINE SATANIC POSTULATES - or
NINE SATANIC STATEMENTS OF REALITY.
Written By Comrades in Satanic Reds
1. Satan is the "dark force" that permeates all of nature and motivates all
things to act according to their inner nature. The Boundless Darkness Itself
is SAT. The ACTION of emanating out of, unfolding out of, springing forth,
is TAN. The motivator and the act of motivating all things
are together: Satan. Satan is that which is the origin of all and
the unmoved mover, and it is described by both the unfolding and the thing unfolded:
2. All things have a beginning where all was one.
3.The "big bang" came from a spark within the one Dark Presence and all that
results from the "big bang" is permeated by the Dark Force. The universe was
emanated by this force going from Chaos-Dark into Cosmos-Light.
4. All things, over time in the cosmos, become separate and change without
ceasing to change.
5. All things are constantly motivated to change according to environment,
and then they change the environment by being in it, of it: there
is a dialectical interaction. If they do not do this they perish and go into
dissolution; but this is not destruction; it is only more change.
6. All things are constantly motivated to change by inner urge. This is "Self
Becoming" or "Self Evolving." All beings everywhere have it. Most living things
have this solely and together with their own species, as if linked. When
the individual becomes into, the species becomes into; in fact, large groups
of similar living things speciate in this manner and diversify. A thing can
not become what it is not already at it's inner core, at it's
fundamental essence, nor can it resist becoming "what it is" as that center
of itself moves forward in time. The thing "becomes into" what it is. One can
have inner truth of what they are and actively increase their potentialities,
or one can flow with what one is. If one resists it or tries to become, in the
inner sense, what one is not, one will become Nothing - Klippoth.
7. All things have an individual characteristic, a unique identity that defines
what they are and become. They are a singularly occurring event in time/space.
8. All things are ultimately connected, even if they appear to be separate,
in the great web of life.
9. And all this is the esoteric meaning of "Do as Thou Wilt" for that truly
is the whole of the Law, Cosmic Law and SAT-TAN-ic Law. The joyful
act of Doing and Becoming-Into is Love. It is experienced as Joy. Being is Joy.
Joy radiates Love just as the sun radiates light.
It follows from these that Satanists do what is best for themselves using foresight.
Satanists demand freedom to govern their own lives, again, using foresight since,
as mammals/primates, we are not solitary animals biologically. Satanists oppose
those that would combat the principles of the cosmos. Man is just another animal:
Self-inner-truth-Wisdom is knowing what kind of animal a human is. - Satan represents
undefiled wisdom, and the desire and Will to Know the Truth. All animals practice
Indulgence according to their Kind; they have Vitality, and they are capable
of Knowing the Inner-Truth of their own Beings, the Mystery of their own Beingness.
Satanic Humans, falling into the category of mammals/primates, are Kind to those
who deserve it and have responsibility of Self and are responsible to others
of like kind: automatically! That is the kind of animals Satanic humans are:
Zoös /Eros. They are OF NATURE. What rebels against its own nature is Klippothic.
What lives in Unreality and desires the Lie is klippothic. The Klippoth is the
enemy of Being - and since Being is Joy, the klippoth is the enemy of Joy. The
Klippoth can be defined as the Unlife - Thanatos.
Advice: AVOID KLIPPOTHS.
