17. ELITISM, FASCISM, & THE SATANIC WAY OF LIFE
I am not sure exactly when this fascist ideology permeated a group
of enlightened beings or how we allowed it to slip through the cracks. I am
unaware of the origin of this plague on our way of life, but I do know the disease
is spreading fast. And, if left unchecked, may destroy our way of life.
Those among you who have yet to truly see the root of these philosophies
may not understand my utter disgust with those who preach from this particular
pulpit all the while wearing their Baphomet like a "Red Badge of Courage." But
to one who has not only dissected the words of the Dark Doctrines and works
of Doctor LaVey, but has also taken the time to feel the spirit of these works,
it is apparent that one can not be both a Satanist and follow either of these
political philosophies. They ARE mutually exclusive conceptualizations!
Our entire belief system is based on the concept of responsibility.
We place personal responsibility above all else. We are responsible for our
successes as well as our failures. We accept that no supernatural father figure
is looking down on us from on high guiding our every move. We believe that we
exist merely on our own merit, for good or ill.
To acknowledge anyone as a dictator or superior goes against
the very nature of our being. Furthermore, to be acknowledged as superior to
another is also against our nature. Some people may disagree, but my arguments
First, a dictator exists by the grace of his subjects. That means
dictators are dependent on another person or group of persons for their power.
This is not the way we are. It is the antithesis of our ideals. It exposes the
low self esteem of the person. It is NOT Satanic! It can not be by the very
basis of our beliefs. To be dependent on another for our self worth would betray
our sense of self, or it betrays the lack of true understanding. This sad excuse
for a Satanist would be living in the world of self delusion while claiming
to be a member of a group that defies illusion.
Do I mean by this that we are not superior? NO! By this I mean
that superiority is not a goal or even a concern for the true follower of the
Left Hand Path! We are too busy with the things that concern us! We do not have
the time to worry about what others may think of our achievements, projects,
Which brings us to the real reason these disillusioned few turn
to talk of the elite and fascism. They crave power which they themselves are
incapable of achieving. The equate self worth with the clout they wield. The
fools! They continually search without for what must exist within if it is to
exist at all. To hide their own inadequacy they rally other like minded and
incompetent people to their infantile cries of superiority, stratification,
and elitism. They replace the foundation of responsibility with an attitude
of "I can do whatever the hell I please with absolutely no concern for consequence."
There is nothing Satanic about their rhetoric. They are not Satanic! Fortunately,
they will never understand the true power that freedom and responsibility together
can bring. This will be the root of their undoing.
It has been said that a "house divided can not stand." Of this
we need not fear. These imbeciles have never been members of our house. They
can not destroy it. They admit, by their own actions, that they lack the power.
