The Gentleman’s – and Noble Ladies – Brief Guide To The Dark Arts

Outwardly, in terms of persona and character, the true Dark Arts are concerned with style; with understated elegance; with natural charisma; with personal charm; and with manners. That is, with a certain personal character and a certain ethos. The character is that of the natural gentleman, of the natural noble lady; the ethos is that of good taste, of refinement, of a civilized attitude.
                  “The faculty of dark-empathy is one of the qualities that distinguishes the genuine Adept. Some other qualities of the Adept are self-honesty, self-awareness, and self-control, often manifest as these are in a certain noble attitude and thus in the possession of personal manners. Not for the Adept the ill-mannered behaviour of Homo Hubris, distinguished as such untermenschen are by their lack of manners, lack of empathy, and their uncontrollable need to dysfunctionally express themselves and their emotions in public. In one word, Adepts possess ἀρετή. ”

Inwardly, the true Dark – the sinister – Arts are concerned with self-control, discipline, self-honesty; with a certain detachment from the mundane.

That this has been forgotten – or not understood, or not even known among the many latter-day pretenders and poseurs – is a sign of how few genuine Masters, and Lady Masters, there are.

Thus, there is a beauty in the Dark Arts and an exultation of Life, and certainly not a wallowing in the symbols, symbolism and accouterments of death and decay. Thus, there is a natural joy, which can be and often is both light and dark but which is always controlled. Not for the Gentleman, or the Lady, the loss of mastery, the stupefaction that arises from over-indulgence (which over-indulgence can and which does include personal emotion).

Thus, one of the true archetypes of the genuine Sinister Path: Baphomet, the beautiful, mature, lady (fecund Mistress of Earth) whose beautiful outward serenity masks the deadly acausal darkness within which can be released when she chooses. (Life-Birth-Joy-Ecstasy-Safety-Wisdom-Giving-Darkness-Death.)

Thus, another dark archetype: The Master, the true shapeshifter who is and who might not be what they might appear to be; the polite charming gentleman, who might (and who could) kill you or have you killed if there was a good enough reason, but who might reward you (if there was a good enough reason) with beneficence whose source would be unknown to you; the recluse – The Master Acausal Sorcerer – you do not see nor know, except perhaps in dreams, shadows, or fleeting day and night-time glimpses which might perhaps stir a memory, some memory, personal or beyond (Beautiful-Profound-Wistful-Knowing-Danger-Roborant-Wyrdful-Sad) which inspires, or brings new beginnings or balance or perchance a retribution.

To aspire to – to gain – Mastery of The Dark Arts is to experience, and to learn the lessons of self-honesty and self-control; to strive, to dream, to quest, to exceed expectations. To move easily, gracefully, from the Light to the Dark, from Dark to Light, until one exists between yet beyond both, treating them (and yourself) for the imposters they (and you) are.

Mastery begins with Internal Adept, and it is from noble cultured – gentlemanly or lady-like – Adepts that candidates for the inner ONA are recruited.

A Propaganda Triumph

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

A Propaganda Triumph

We have to admit that we – our pro-NS nexion {1} – and several other O9A nexions and individuals were most pleased by the much read article titled Beyond The Iron Gates: How Nazi-Satanists Infiltrated the UK Underground which was recently published on a well-known and popular internet based music magazine.

For the article enhanced not only the “evil”, the sinister, the neo-nazi, reputation of The Order Of Nine Angles, but also the reputation of David Myatt/Anton Long who was described as “a former mercenary and bodyguard to fascist British Movement leader Colin Jordan” and as having a “lifelong aim of destroying Judeo-Christian culture.”

In addition, the article credited the O9A with having around 2,000 adherents worldwide and speculated about “how many unsolved hate crimes in Europe and the US are O9A style opfers.”

That said, about hype and propaganda, the typos in the article and the spurious “sic” comment – regarding the use of the apostrophe followed by “s” as, for example, in 1970’s, rather than 1970s – as well as the committal by the anonymous author of fallacies such as a dicto secundum quid ad dictum simpliciter and that Incomplete Evidence, reveals the tabloid nature, the coarseness, the mundane, nature, of the article.

For, in respect of their “sic” comment, an apostrophe followed by “s” was an accepted dating convention for decades before some “committees” decided to abandon the former in favour of the latter. As someone mentioned in a comment on the controversy,
                   “when I went to school we were all taught to write 1960’s, etc. The change to omitting the apostrophe is a quite recent one.”

Furthermore, as the O9A wrote in their O9A Esoteric Notes LXXVI,
                  “Standardization of spelling in the English language is a relatively recent convention. For centuries after manuscripts such as Beowulf were written in Old English and for centuries after books were first printed in the English language copyists and authors continued to use different spelling of certain words.
                   For instance from the 16th century (ev) until at least the 19th century (ev) the word now conventionally spelt Alchemy might be spelt Alchymie, alchymye, alkamye, alkemye, alkamy, and alkemie, among other variants, including a variant used in the 18th century in the US State of Virginia: achemy, qv. B. W. Green, Word-book of Virginia Folk-Speech published in 1899.”

That the anonymous author of the How Nazi-Satanists Infiltrated the UK Underground article was possibly unaware of such minutiae is further evidence both of his/her lack of research into the O9A and of the tabloid nature, the coarseness, the mundane nature, of their article. Or – dare we say – was intentional, and thus evidence of its positive (for us) propaganda value and therefore evidence of the “sinister” intent of the anonymous author who was writing for a particular (a mundane) audience.

That so many mundanes have accepted the contents of that article as the gospel truth about the O9A we find most amusing and most indicative.

Indicative, in that their acceptance of such propaganda enhances the “evil”, the sinister, the neo-nazi, reputation, of both The Order Of Nine Angles and of David Myatt.

Amusing, because we are most pleased and have to admit that we imagined that the article might well have been commissioned by, or written by, “one of us”.

The Two Interpretations Of National Socialism

odal3

The Two Interpretations Of National Socialism
Ours And Theirs

Since we – identifying as O9A and as an independent O9A nexion applying the esoteric philosophy of the Order of Nine Angles including its code of kindred honour – have previously stated that we interpret that philosophy as anti-Magian in essence and as National-Socialist in exoteric practice and as required by the O9A’s Sinister Dialectic, it is necessary for us to describe in detail what we mean by National-Socialism, since our understanding of National-Socialism is very different from that of the majority of self-described “neo-nazis”.

Just as there are two latter-day interpretations of Satanism – the ‘modern American’ type manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey (better known under his aliases of Anton LaVey and Anton Szandor LaVey) and the ‘traditional Satanism’ as manifest in the Occult philosophy and the praxis of the Order of Nine Angles {1} – so there are two latter-day interpretations of National Socialism.

Latter-Day Neo-Nazism And The National-Socialism Of Reichsfolk

The first and most well-known latter-day interpretation of National Socialism is that of the majority of self-described “neo-nazis”, and which interpretation is accepted and opposed by most anti-fascists. This is the National Socialism with a belief in a strong, powerful, nation-State, and with an overt racist ideology. A National Socialism with a dislike – often hatred – of non-White immigrants and non-White neighbours; with a belief in the instinct of “might is right” and the necessity of kampf; with a dislike – even a hatred – of those whose love is for someone of the same gender; a National Socialism with a misogyny based on the masculous instinct that it is the natural duty of most women to be wives and home-makers; and a National Socialism with a dislike – even a hatred – of Islam and Muslims.

The second, and not very well-known, latter-day interpretation of National Socialism is that of the “revisionist”, non-racist, National-Socialism developed by David Myatt in the 1990s and manifest in the Reichsfolk group {2} inspired as this version was by Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle and by the “NS Kindred” ideal of Jost Turner.

In this Myattian interpretation of National-Socialism {3} it is regarded as both (i) “an ethnic philosophy which affirms that the different races, the different peoples, which exist are expressions of our human condition, and that these differences, this human diversity, should be treasured in the same way we treasure the diversity of Nature. National-Socialists believe our world would be poorer were these human differences to be destroyed through abstract ideas,” and as (ii) “a pure expression of our own unique Aryan ethics, based as these ethics are upon the idealism of duty to the folk, duty to Nature, and upon the nobility of personal honour.” {4}

It is also the National-Socialism which rejects the notion of a strong, powerful, modern nation-State in favour of new ethnic folk-communities and which National-Socialism is not politically active “on the streets” but instead is “a social, educational, cultural, and spiritual, movement based upon and dedicated to disseminating the noble principles of ethical, non-racist, National-Socialism which are honour, reason, fairness, loyalty, duty to one’s own folk and to Nature, and respect for and understanding of other cultures and other ways of life.” {2}

In simple terms, the Myattian interpretation of National-Socialism is based on both honour and race, whereas the neo-nazism of most modern nazis and of modern neo-nazi political groups is based on the glorification of race and the glorification of “racial struggle” at the expense of personal honour; a difference Myatt emphasised is his essay A Brief Criticism of William Pierce, written in 114yf,

                  “The main weakness of the theorizing of Pierce is that he has failed to see that it is a combination of race and honour which defines National-Socialism, and which should define the racialist movement in general. Without the evolutionary, moral, concept of honour, there is only the inhuman ethics of the past, and in practice this leads to the creation of people who are ignoble and societies which are anti-evolutionary. Thus, Pierce is firmly stuck in the past: an ignoble past of unreason and dishonour.
                  This lack of an ethical dimension to his thinking leads to him supporting the old concept of racial struggle and the inhuman consequence of considering that some races are superior to others.” {5}

Myatt expanded upon this in his seminal text Esoteric Hitlerism: Idealism, the Third Reich and the Essence of National-Socialism,

                  “An affirmation of race without an affirmation honour is not National-Socialism, just as an affirmation of honour without an affirmation of race is not National-Socialism.
                  It is this living, organic, dialectic of honour and race which defines National-Socialism itself, and a National-Socialist is an individual who strives to do their honourable duty to both their own race and Nature herself, of which other human races are a part.
                  That is, a National-Socialist must always be honourable, whatever the consequences, or the perceived consequences. Quite often, this means a National-Socialist is faced with what seems to be difficult choices and difficult decisions, although in reality if National-Socialism itself is properly understood, there is no conflict, no moral dilemma and no difficulty in doing the right, the honourable, thing.
                  Thus if something, some act or deed, seems to affirm race – or be beneficial to one’s race – but is dishonourable, then that something is not something a National-Socialist should do. What honour does is define our duty to our race and other races – it prevents us from committing hubris.” {5}

In addition, in Myatt’s revisionist version of National-Socialism there is no misogyny, for the NS Code of Honour applies equally to both men and women,

                  “A man or woman of honour treats others courteously, regardless of their culture, religion, status, and race, and is only disdainful and contemptuous of those who, by their attitude, actions and behaviour, treat they themselves with disrespect or try to personally harm them, or who treat with disrespect or try to harm those whom the individual man or woman of honour have personally sworn loyalty to or whom they champion.” {6}

Our National-Socialism

The National-Socialism that we interpret as embodying the anti-Magian essence of the O9A and the exoteric practice of the O9A’s Sinister Dialectic is Myatt’s revisionist, non-racist, ethical, version of National-Socialism as manifest in Reichsfolk.

This is the National-Socialism where

                  “a true National-Socialist knows or feels that some things are honourable, and other things are dishonourable. It is dishonourable, for instance – cowardly and unfair and uncivilized – for several people to attack and try to injure or kill a single individual.
                  Thus, if several Caucasians attack one Negro, they are acting dishonourably – they are being uncivilized and cowardly. A true National-Socialist would never do such a thing. They would always want to see, or take part in, a “fair fight”.
                  Furthermore, I myself – a life-long National-Socialist – would go to the aid of a Negro if I saw him being attacked by several Caucasians, for that would be the just, the fair, the honourable, the civilized and the National-Socialist thing to do. That so many people today who adhere to ‘political National Socialist’ organizations do not agree with this just shows how far these so-called ‘National Socialists’ are from genuine National-Socialism. Which, incidently, is why I always write ‘National-Socialism’ rather than National Socialism.”

This is also the National-Socialism where there is respect for the Muslim way of life and Muslim culture, with honourable co-operation between National-Socialists and Muslims regarded as desirable {8}.

That this revisionist, non-racist, ethical, version of National-Socialism is not appreciated – and certainly not understood – in the societies of the modern West is regarded by our kind as just one more indication of just how successful the Magian, the hubriati, and the neo-nazi hordes of Homo Hubris, have been in propagating the Magian latter-day (mis)interpretation of National Socialism as “racist”, homophobic, misogynist, anti-Muslim, and uncivilized.

A Multi-Headed Mythical Beast (v.2)
(pdf)

°°°

In this essay the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) is discussed in relation to two recent articles by the same anonymous author which were published by a popular internet based music magazine. One of which articles – Beyond The Iron Gates: How Nazi-Satanists Infiltrated the UK Underground – was devoted to the O9A, with the other – titled Why We’re Investigating Extreme Politics in Underground Music – dealing with artistic transgression, subversion, and infiltration, in general.

As we reveal, the article about the O9A is ill-informed, while the other article reveals a lack of understanding of artistic transgression and subversion. As we go on to note, the O9A defies classification according to mainstream, conventional, ideas, and appears to have taken “artistic transgression and subversion” to the next level.

That the anonymous author, in respect of the O9A, commits the fallacy of a dicto secundum quid ad dictum simpliciter, and the Fallacy of Incomplete Evidence, was only to be expected.

A Necessary Disclaimer

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

As has been stated many times by others associating themselves with or identifying with the Order Of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and also by us – including in our recent article The Question Of O9A Culling – neither they nor “we” (our nexion) represent the O9A and neither do they nor we speak or write “on behalf of” the O9A.

No one, and no nexion, does or can speak or write “on behalf of” the O9A since the O9A is a modern and leaderless, non-hierarchical, occult movement/sub-culture founded on a particular esoteric philosophy and particular occult praxises, and a movement which an individual chooses to identify with.

It is most amusing and indicative that many O9A critics, some journalists, and even some academics continue to quote some article by someone associating themselves with or identifying with the Order Of Nine Angles as if that someone was declaiming some “official” O9A policy or was writing about some “official” O9A policy. Indicative because such O9A critics, journalists, and academics either do not understand what the O9A is or have failed to do the most basic research. For had they done such research they would have discovered that one of founding principles of the O9A is what has become known as the authority of individual judgment.

As one of us wrote in a recent article:

“The principle or axiom of the authority of individual judgment in practice means (i) that no author, no individual, no nexion, can present or represent the view or the opinion of the entity termed the Order of Nine Angles, (ii) that the O9A does not have, never has had, and never will have an “official policy” about anything, and never has, and never will make “official statements” about anything; and (iii) that the only authority which is meaningful for the O9A is the individual one which results from the exoteric and esoteric pathei mathos of each individual who is part of or who associates themselves with the O9A.”

Thus our articles and essays represent our views and/or our particular interpretation of matters O9A, just as the articles and essays of others associating themselves with or identifying with the Order Of Nine Angles represent their views and/or their particular interpretation of matters O9A.

The Question Of O9A Culling

O9A Insight Role
O9A Insight Role

°°°°°°°°°

The Question Of O9A Culling

It is that time of year again. When in Northern Europe the dark nights become longer in duration, the ambient temperature begins to fall, deciduous trees shed their leaves, there are often frosts at Dawn, and the hearth becomes again a focal point of rural indoor living with its warming fire of logs or of coal or of peat. A time for rural O9A folk to tell, at dusk and to their children, ancestral stories of OmegaNineAlpha culling…

Meanwhile, in the urban world where most self-described modern ‘satanists’ dwell – following as they do or inspired as they have been by the modern materialistic ‘satanism’ propagated by the urban-dwelling Howard Stanton Levey – the internet chatter and stories about the Order of Nine Angles and culling continues, season following season.

It is as if latter-day Levey-style ‘satanists’ are all singing from the same anti-O9A hymn sheet, vocalising different parts.

“ONA culling is just propaganda,” many of them sing, “an urban myth”. After all, the chorus goes, “the ONA is a joke and doesn’t exist.” Others sing the verse that ONA culling is merely the internet boasting of male adolescents. Yet others sing about “Where are the bodies? Why has no one ONA ever been arrested for murder?”

Some others sing the verse about how they just cannot believe that someone O9A could leave no evidence behind at a murder scene because all modern Levey-style ‘satanists’ know that anyone who describes themselves as O9A is just an easily-led simpleton with the O9A itself being “a cult for morons”.

            What none of these critics seem to have factored in is that there are different opinions among O9A folk about culling and about it being a mandatory part of the O9A Seven Fold Way. A difference founded on the fundamental O9A principle of the authority of individual judgment. {1}

Some, such as myself, consider that advocacy of “culling” is merely part of the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus. A kind of test of occult intuition and a test also designed to put many people off, cause controversy and so generate interest in the O9A. Which it has done.

Others consider it is mandated as one of the tasks of someone who following the O9A Seven Fold Way has reached the occult grade of External Adept with it therefore being akin to a hazing (US) or a blooding (UK) especially if the nexion or temple of the External Adept takes part as suggested in the vintage text Guidelines for the Testing of Opfers published in 1988 ev.

Yet others consider culling is not a mandatory part of the Seven Fold Way and have updated, revised, or evolved that occult way to exclude it. {2}{3}

In regard to those O9A folk who consider culling is mandatory then the Levey-style ‘satanist’ critics of the O9A seem to have missed two other things.

° The first is the exoteric and esoteric context in which an O9A culling takes place.

The exoteric context is well described in the document Culling And The Code of Kindred Honour {4} which relates a factual event and describes how an O9A person who accepted culling as mandatory might or should react given the personal circumstances related.

The esoteric context is described in the document Another Academic Misinterpretation Of The O9A {5} and which esoteric context is of such a culling being a personal learning experience and forming only one small and temporary part of the decades long classic Seven Fold Way.

° The second is that, for those who accept that culling is necessary, such a culling could be undertaken when they undertake an Insight Role as, for example, a member of the armed forces or as a police officer.

            To conclude, as with most if not all matters O9A it is for each person identifying with the O9A to form their own judgment about culling since as has been reiterated many times over the past few years the O9A when correctly understood is a modern occult movement (some would say a sub-culture) founded on a particular esoteric philosophy and a movement which an individual chooses to identify with or, should they feel the need, chooses to develop a new ‘flavour’ or version of.

The Myattian Saga Continues

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

The Myattian Saga Continues

In the decades long and on-going saga of whether or not David Myatt is or was Anton Long of Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) fame {1} some of Mr Myatt’s latest writings are intriguing and seem to provide more proof that, as he has maintained all along, he is not and was not Anton Long, founder of the O9A, author of most of its vast Occult corpus, and “paramount to the whole creation and existence of the ONA.” {2}

These latest writings of his include the two part In Defence Of The Catholic Church {3} and his Persecution And War {4}. His In Defence Of The Catholic Church as the title indicates is a defence of the Catholic Church, and in particular in respect of allegations of sexual abuse by priests and monks. The article is based on his personal experience of the Catholic religion from boy to Catholic monk. His Persecution And War is a fascinating, if somewhat annoyingly brief, autobiographical account of some of his experiences as a visiting Catholic in Northern Ireland during The Troubles and of how those experiences helped him when he came to develop his philosophy of pathei mathos.

In part one of In Defence Of The Catholic Church he has many positive things to say about the Catholic Church. Mentioning some medieval liturgical music he writes that he is

                  “so reminded how the Roman Catholic Church inspired such numinosity, such beauty, century following century. For it is as if such music presenced the Divine to thus remind us, we fallible error-prone mortals, of another realm beyond the material and beyond our own mortal desires.”

He goes on to write that he

                  “from personal experience appreciate[s] that for all its many faults – recent and otherwise – and despite my disagreement regarding some of its teachings it still on balance does, at least in my fallible opinion, presence – as it has for centuries presenced – aspects of the numinous and which presencing has over centuries, again in my fallible opinion, had a beneficial affect on many human beings.”

He then recounts a journey of his in Africa, commenting about the Christian folk he met that he

                  “admired them and respected their belief and understood what that faith seemed to have given them. Who was – who am – I to try and preach to them, to judge them and that faith? I was – I am – just one fallible human being who believes he may have some personal and fallible answers to certain questions; just one person among billions aware of his past arrogance and his suffering-causing mistakes.”

As for the allegations of sexual abuse made against priests and monks he is adamant, based on his personal experiences as a Catholic and especially as a Catholic monk, that “they, and the few others like them over the years, were the exception” and that those who believe otherwise commit the logical fallacy of a dicto secundum quid ad dictum simpliciter, which basically is to use 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. {5}

Such statements by Myatt regarding Catholicism, and such personal feelings as he describes, are not those of a Satanist and not those of someone who associating with the O9A is expected to despise both Christianity in all its forms and Christians themselves. {6}

Part two of his In Defence Of The Catholic Church presents a theological defence of the actions, the response, of the Catholic hierarchy when cases of sexual abuse by priests and monks were made known to them. This is the more interesting part of his article since this theological defence is not only clearly explained by Myatt but also has seldom featured in all the media and other criticism of the response of the Catholic hierarchy.

Myatt’s argument is that in regard to the individuals involved, the Catholic church has a higher spiritual responsibility. Which is to consider and take care of their eternal souls and thus apply the Catholic “sacrament of penance and reconciliation” to them.

Naturally in the modern world of the capitalist West with its secular governments and secular laws this theological view is not popular. Nor a view which many would even consider or understand. Which explains why some States in America, and governments in other lands, have tried to introduce secular laws to break such things as the Catholic “seal of the confessional”. {7}

That Myatt presents and defends a Christian theological argument is not something a Satanist nor someone associating with the O9A would do.

In his Persecution And War Myatt uses his “Catholic remembering” – of Catholic civilians killed by the British army in Northern Ireland – to make a point about prejudice, intolerance, and propaganda, concluding that

                  “the real tragedy is that events similar to those of my very personal remembering have occurred on a vaster scale millennia after millennia and are still occurring, again on a vaster scale and world-wide, despite us having access to the wisdom of the past.”

These again are not the kind of things a Satanist nor someone associating with the O9A would write.

One final point deserves mentioning. The erudite nature of the articles. There are, as to be expected with Myatt, quotations from the ancient Greek together with his own translations, quotations in Old English and Latin as well as detailed explanations of terms such as “sin” in relation to the New Testament with relevant quotations from the Greek New Testament again with his own translations.

Conclusion

It is conceivable that believers in the Myatt=Long theory, who exist both outside and within the O9A and who seem intent on demonizing Myatt if for different reasons, will in support of that theory claim that someone who was O9A might be devious enough – à la O9A year long Insight Roles – to pretend to write or act as someone who has a diametrically opposite personal character or life to his or her own. Hence someone O9A dialectically praising Christianity.

The fundamental flaw to such a claim in respect of Myatt is that he has been writing similar and consistent things about Christianity, Catholicism, and about prejudice and intolerance since at least 2011, and since then has also penned voluminous other writings about his philosophy of pathei mathos, about compassion, humility, and extremism which echo the sentiments found in the recent writings we have been discussing.

As someone wrote in this regard in 2016,

                  “All these sentiments, these feelings, are so consistent over so many years, chime so well with his poetry, with the feelings that run through his pre-2009 letters, with his autobiography Myngath, and with post-2011 writings about his philosophy of pathei-mathos, that it seems inconceivable to me that they are artful constructions – fakes – by someone else (or some others) or the product of some ‘sinister trickster’ who has consciously adopted a certain persona in order to try and fool people. Also, what they express is a mysticism, a reverence for and an appreciation of the numinous, so at odds with the ethos and the practice of Satanism – of whatever variety – that it is also inconceivable that they were written by a Satanist or even by a practising Occultist.” {8}

One has for instance only to read essays by Myatt such as his Numinous Expiation {9} and Catholic Still In Spirit? {10} and his book Understanding and Rejecting Extremism {11} to appreciate this.

These latest writings therefore on balance provide more proof that Myatt is not and was not Anton Long. As I wrote in my article Demonizing Mr Myatt

                  “The demonizers of Myatt have ignored such things because those things reveal a very different Myatt. One at odds with the ‘sinister’ image of him they have all in their own way strived to manufacture and have propagated in pursuit of their aims. For the image of Myatt that emerges from his poetry and his post 2011 writings is of a reclusive man who regrets his extremist past, who values virtues such as empathy and compassion.” {12}

Traditional And Modern: The Two Types Of Satanism

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

The Two Types Of Satanism

There are basically two types of Satanism: (i) the ‘modern American’ type manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey – better known under his aliases of Anton LaVey and Anton Szandor LaVey – and (ii) the ‘traditional Satanism’ as manifest in the Occult philosophy and the praxis of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) as developed and expounded by the pseudonymous “Anton Long” which is widely believed to be a pseudonym used by the neo-nazi extremist, and “theoretician of terror” {1}, David Myatt. {2}{3}

The Satanism Of Levey

The modern Satanism of Levey is based on the premise that Satan is a symbol of the carnal, the selfish, the egoistic, nature of human beings, with satanism understood as manifesting the raison d’êtres of ‘might is right’, of ‘lex talionis’, and of the individualistic ideas expressed in Ayn Rand’s Objectivism {4}.

This type of Satanism promotes “the total satisfaction of the ego” {5} and obeying the law of the land {6}.

The Satanism Of Anton Long

The traditional Satanism of Anton Long is based on the scholarly premise that – as described in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan {7} – (i) hasatan – the satan – refers (in the Septuagint) to the chief adversary (of the so-called ‘chosen ones’) and to the chief schemer against those who regard themselves as the chosen people of God/Jehovah, and (ii) “a satan” historically (in the Septuagint) refers to someone who is an adversary of and who thus is pejoratively regarded (by those so opposed) as scheming, as plotting against those who regard themselves as the chosen people of God/Jehovah.

Thus, for the O9A, a satanist is someone who is heretically opposed to those who believe they are the chosen people of God/Jehovah, with O9A satanism understood as an antinomian – amoral, heretical – means to such exeatic personal experiences as shape and evolve an individual’s character and understanding. {8}{9}.

The contrast between the Satanism manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey and the Satanism developed and expounded by Anton Long is perhaps best illustrated by comparing their respective lives and their respective writings, for one would expect their respective types of Satanism to be reflected in their own lives and in their writings.

A Contrast Of Lives

The life of Howard Stanton Levey consisted of conducting carnivalesque – and sometimes fetishistic – ‘satanic’ rituals while dressed like Mephistopheles in some amateur production of Marlowe’s Faust; selling membership in his showmanry Church of Satan while telling members to “obey the law”; pontificating – and giving lectures – about his type of satanism; giving interviews to journalists; hosting parties for hedonists and Hollywood-types, and boasting about his past.

Levey, for instance, boasted that as a seventeen year old he worked in the Beatty circus and handled lions and tigers, although circus records from that time showed that no one named Levey or LaVey worked for them. He boasted that he had worked as a photographer for the San Francisco police department although they had no record of anyone called Levey or LaVey working for them.

Levey boasted that he had an affair with Marilyn Monroe, and yet again there is no documentary evidence to substantiate his claim. He boasted that he worked in a burlesque theatre called Mayan and met Marilyn Monroe there whom he claimed worked as a striptease artiste although the owner of the theatre at the time – Paul Valentine – denied it was a burlesque theatre, stated Levey never worked there, with there also being no documentary evidence that Monroe worked there as a striptease artiste.

Levey boasted that he enrolled on a criminology course at the City College in San Francisco although the college had no record of his enrolment under his real name, Levey, or under the La Vey alias he often used.

Thus the life of Howard Stanton Levey does indeed exemplify his type of Satanism: hedonistic, egoistic, boastful, materialistic, and showmanry. In common parlance: all mouth and trousers.

            In contrast to Levey, “Anton Long” – aka David Myatt – is a “principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution” {10}, was “the mentor” who drove someone to kill three people {11}, who before and after 9/11 publicly praised bin Laden and al Qaeda, called the 9/11 attacks ‘acts of heroism’ and urged the killing of Jews {12}, who preached “race war and terrorism” {13}, who wrote “a detailed step-by-step guide for terrorist insurrection with advice on assassination targets, rationale for bombing and sabotage campaigns, and rules of engagement” {14}, who travelled and spoke in several Arab countries about Jihad {15}, who was a bodyguard of England’s principle neo-nazi activist, Colin Jordan {16}, who took over the leadership of the violent neo-nazi group Combat 18 when its previous leader was jailed for murder {17}, who is an “example of the axis between right-wing extremists and Islamists” {17}, who is a Martial Arts expert {18}, who was imprisoned twice for violent offences in connection with his neo-nazi activism {17}, and who in 1998 was arrested for conspiracy to murder and for other offences {14}{19}.

The life of Myatt does indeed exemplify O9A Satanism: actually or potentially harmful, destructive, pernicious, baleful, misleading, deadly; bad in moral character; malevolent, offensive, sly; and hard and difficult. In common parlance: extremist, violent, and terrorist.

A Contrast Of Writings

The sources used by Howard Levey – evident in his much-vaunted ‘satanic bible’ and in his letters – are populist interpretations of the likes of Nietzsche and Ayn Rand, populist books about psychology, with the anonymous polemic titled Might Is Right much plagiarized. Since Levey could not read Ancient Greek, Latin, and Arabic, when writing about Satan, Iblis (Shaitan) and the medieval “grimoire” tradition of magic(k) that derived from such earlier Arabic works as Ghayat al-Ḥakim and also from some medieval Latin esoteric texts – such as those of Marsilio Ficino – Levey had no knowledge of such primary sources and had to rely on populist books and the interpretations and interpolations of others. Thus in his understanding of the Biblical Satan he had to rely on translations, unable as he was to read the κοινή Greek of the Septuagint.

Such sources and populist interpretations are also much in evidence in texts written by Aquino, who according to his own account {20} aided and contributed to the production of Levey’s ‘satanic bible’ and his ‘satanic rituals’ books. Like Levey, Aquino could not read Ancient Greek, Latin, and Arabic, and also used populist summaries of philosophies and weltanschauungen, ancient and modern. Thus, in his The Crystal Tablet of Set, populist summaries of philosophies and weltanschauungen, ancient and modern, precede a quite minimalist and vague presentation of ‘satanist’ and/or of Temple of Set ideas. Thus, a chapter on ‘ethics’ consists of 12 pages of populist summaries of the likes of Plato, Hegel, Marx, et al, followed by a meagre few paragraphs concerning good and evil in an occult context, and which paragraphs merely present rather cliched personal opinions, such as that “there is thus no easy answer to the question of whether a given magical act is good or evil” and that “it is up to the magician to determine what judgments – by which judges – will be important”. As befits such pseudo-intellectualism, the references in such texts are often to populist works (such as The Social Contract by Robert Ardrey) just as quotations from such people as Plato are invariably in translations, not by Aquino, but by someone else.

Thus the writings of Howard Stanton Levey – and those of Aquino, his helper – do indeed exemplify the type of Satanism found in The Church Of Satan: populist, plagiaristic, reliant on the interpretations and interpolations of others, and unoriginal. In common parlance: plebeian, mundane.

            In complete contrast, Myatt has “fluency in the classical languages (Greek and Latin), as well as Arabic and possibly Persian, [and is] possessed of a gifted intellect and apparently a polymath,” {21} and thus can read primary esoteric, classical, and alchemical sources, and the Greek texts of the Septuagint (the Old Testament) and the New Testament, in their original language. Thus when “Anton Long” writes in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan about Satan he does so based on a scholarly knowledge of the Greek text of the Old Testament.

In addition, when Myatt – in contrast to both Levey and Aquino – writes of ethics and about ‘good and evil’ in, for example, chapter IV – Questions of Good, Evil, Honour, and God – of his 2013 book Religion, Empathy, and Pathei-Mathos, he provides passages in Hebrew, Greek, and Arabic, along with his own translations. Similarly, when discussing ethics in his recent book Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos, Myatt provides the relevant Greek texts (such as from the Gospel of John) and his own translations.

Thus the O9A writings of Anton Long do indeed exemplify O9A Satanism: intellectually and historically based {22}, scholarly, original. In common parlance: a cut above the rest.

Conclusion

The contrast between the life and writings of Howard Levey and Anton Long could not be more stark.

Levey was a showman, a dilettante, a plagiarist, a charlatan, and a mundane.

Anton Long, however, was a practical – a hands-on – extremist and Faustian man as well as an intellectual, a scholar, a martial arts expert {18}, “emblematic of the modern syncretism of radical ideologies” {23}, and well-described as an “extremely violent, intelligent, dark, and complex individual” {24} who undertook “a global odyssey which took him on extended stays in the Middle East and East Asia, accompanied by studies of religions ranging from Christianity to Islam in the Western tradition and Taoism and Buddhism in the Eastern path. In the course of this Siddhartha-like search for truth, Myatt sampled the life of the monastery in both its Christian and Buddhist forms.” {25}.

Which global odyssey formed only part of his fifty year quest – his personal hermetic anados (ἄνοδος) {26} – along the Seven Fold (Sinisterly-Numinous) Way of the O9A culminating in his discovery of Lapis Philosophicus {27} and thence the living of the life of a reclusive Mage, and thus who is a modern example of the ancient Rounwytha tradition, whose

            “perceiveration is of the nameless, wordless, unity beyond our mortal, abstract, ideations of ‘sinister’ and ‘numinous’, of Left Hand Path and Right Hand Path, and also – and importantly – of ‘time’. For it is our ideation of ‘time’ – with its assumption of a possible temporal progression, via various temporary causal forms, toward something ‘better’ or more ‘advanced’ or more ‘perfect’ (in personal or supra-personal terms) – that underlies the magian/patriarchal/masculous approach that has dominated, and still dominates, Western occultism and esotericism in general, fundamental to which is a hubriatic egoism: the illusion that is the individual will.” {28}

Such is the modern heresy of the O9A which esoterically and exoterically contradicts the modern Satanism of Levey based as the Satanism of Levey is on the premise that Satan is a symbol for plebeians, and thus of the carnal, the selfish, the egoistic, the mundane, nature of human beings.

In stark contrast, the Satanism of the O9A is of a Faustian, a Promethean, and life-long endeavour to defy all ideations, all causal forms, and reach out to personally and in practical ways experience and learn from both the ‘sinister’ and the ‘numinous’ and to thus discover Lapis Philosophicus.

The Anti-Patriarchal O9A

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

On The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos

I read that one of things that differentiates the O9A from other Left Hand Path occultists and from other Satanists is its anti-patriarchal ethos. Could you expand upon this?

As noted in the O9A text Distinguishing The O9A, {1} distributed in 2016:

[quote]
                  “One of the most outward practical signs of the O9A logos is the fact that the O9A has and always has had Sapphic nexions and – according to an academic source {2} – “has more female supporters than either the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set [and] more women with children.”
                 For the [O9A] code of kindred honour embodies respect for women and gender equality and – as is evident from basic texts such as Naos – the O9A also embodies equality in regard to the sexual preference of individuals. Furthermore, the O9A has always emphasized that “only through the female are the forces represented by the three alchemical substances and their nine combinations capable of being released in a physical way.” {3}
                 That is, it is women who are the key to creating, opening – and keeping open – nexions to the acausal. Thus, in the O9A, women are of fundamental importance, equal partners, and indeed essential to the O9A, with the O9A ethos contrary to and opposed to the misogyny still so rife in the Western world, as elsewhere.
[/quote]

Terran men in their majority seem to have a genetic predisposition to be arrogant, misogynist, competitive, and desirous of war and conflict. Until, that is, some are touched – perhaps transformed – via pathei-mathos: by grief, by personal suffering, by such personal loss of loved ones or comrades as – even if for only moments – place their own mortal lives into a supra-personal, sometimes even into an Aeonic, perspective.

Yet each new generation of terran men begins anew. Self-assured, arrogant, misogynist, competitive, and desirous of war and conflict, as they so often in their majority are. To them, this new generation, the pathei-mathos – such stories – of their forefathers seem unreal; voices of a past generation to be perhaps condescendingly listened to but seldom if ever appreciated and almost always never to become a source of learning.

Thus, given the dominant patriarchal ethos of past eras and of the current era, does the cycle of a lack of conscious, willed, evolution continue, and repeat itself, generation following terran generation. Which is where – for those who know – certain esoteric traditions come into play. For such traditions preserve, hand on to each new generation, a means, a praxis, whereby that learning of previous generations has been distilled into a transformative, an alchemical, essence so enabling us, both men and women, as a sentient species to consciously evolve. One such means of esoteric transformation is the Seven Fold Way (7FW) of the Order of Nine Angles. For the 7FW is basically a series of consciously undertaken practical experiences. Experiences which can – which should – provoke the person into learning about and being honest with themselves, with such experiences and such learning enabling the person to develop their own weltanschauung and thus be independent of previous dogma esoteric or otherwise.

In other words, the 7FW evolves the individual because they have an understanding which transcends the human made dialectic of opposites – the abstractions, forms, categories, terms, the naming – which has guided the thinking and often the way of life of most humans for thousands of years. This understanding goes beyond words and is highly personal; germane to the individual.

Of pathei mathos in general, that is, outside of an Occult context, [David] Myatt writes in one of his metaphysical tracts,

                  “For we human beings, pathei-mathos possesses a numinous, a living, authority; [for] the wisdom, the understanding, that arises from one’s own personal experience, from formative experiences that involve some hardship, some grief, some personal suffering, is often or could be more valuable to us (more alive, more meaningful) than any doctrine, than any religious faith, than any words one might hear from someone else or read in some book.” {4}

In esoteric – occult – terms the foundations of the 7FW (and thus of the Order of Nine Angles) are (i) pathei mathos consciously produced through an individual undertaking particular tasks and rôles both esoteric and exoteric, and (ii) the knowledge that our evolution as a species is an individual, a personal, an Aeonic, one and does not and cannot be done by ‘secret occult societies’ of whatever kind, cannot be done through external forms or forces such as politics or religion or by social doctrines or laws being applied to a society or to societies. That is, it is individuals and their pathei mathos who and which are evolutionary, the basis – the quintessence – of the 7FW and of the Order of Nine Angles.

The articles draw attention to or explain various aspects of Mr Myatt’s philosophy and metaphysical writings such as his usage of terms such as “the numinous” and the “new pagan metaphysics” which he has proposed.

The one exception is the article titled Decoding The Life Of Myatt which provides an overview of Mr Myatt’s controversial life.

As the authoress of one of the articles included notes, “there is a cultural revolution in the truths embedded in the book Regarding Western Paganism And Hermeticism and in the [Myattian] texts referenced therein. But whether such truths can replace the prevalent and mistaken belief that Christianity is somehow the embodiment of Western culture remains to be seen.”

As noted in another article also included, recent works by Myatt provide “an intellectual basis for a new, an enlightened, paganism firmly rooted in an understanding of our debt to Greco-Roman, pagan, culture.”

The Enigma of Myatt, the O9A and Anton Long

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°

Editorial Note: The important and informative essay presented below is the Introduction to the 97 page book titled A Modern Mysterium: The Enigma of Myatt And The O9A and summarizes the salient points in respect of the book, containing as the book does essays written in the past few years by various authors, and divided as the book is into three parts. Which division reflects the nature of the controversial subject, which is the relation of the modern Occult group the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) to the person – a self-declared satanist – who wrote under the pseudonym Anton Long, and what, if any, is the relationship between ‘Anton Long’ and a certain Mr David Myatt. The term mysterium is used in accord with its classical Latin meaning: to imply “a mystery”, “a secret”, qv. Cicero.

The book is available as a gratis open access (pdf) file here: A Modern Mysterium.

°°°°°°°

Introduction, from A Modern Mysterium

           As the author of one the essays included in A Modern Mysterium: The Enigma of Myatt And The O9A wrote, the question of whether or not Mr David Myatt is or was “Anton Long” is sui generis insofar as the Order of Nine Angles is concerned. Why? Basically for two reasons.

If he was, then, as several O9A supporters have claimed, his somewhat strange multiform, exeatic, and antinomian, life is a real-life example of not only the practical – ‘sinister’ – ethos of the O9A but also of its core praxis termed the Seven Fold Way, which praxis is a decades-long esoteric and exoteric personal quest for Lapis Philosophicus, for Wisdom.

If he was not, then the O9A remains one modern Occult philosophy among many with little to distinguish it other than perhaps its complexity and its Labyrinthos Mythologicus.

If his life is a practical example of the ‘sinister’ ethos of the O9A – as his decades of practical involvement with political and religious extremism, his support for terrorism, his imprisonment for violence, and his criminal years, might seem to suggest – then it is easy to understand why opponents and critics of the O9A continue to denigrate him, for the the documented facts about his life are enough to make Howard Levey – the much vaunted ‘Anton LaVey’, often described as “the founder of modern satanism” – seem, by comparison, just a showman, a charlatan, and a wuss. {1}

In addition, Myatt’s documented intellectualism – as in his Greek translations and commentaries, such as of tractates from the Corpus Hermeticum – make both Levey and the equally vaunted Aquino (of Temple of Set fame) seem to be, by comparison, pretentious pseudo-intellectuals. Unlike those individuals, Myatt has “fluency in the classical languages (Greek and Latin), as well as Arabic” {2} and thus can read primary esoteric, classical, and alchemical sources in their original language whereas they, and most if not all of their followers, have to rely on the translations of others, lacking as they do the erudition of Myatt, an erudition evident in his recent book Tu Es Diaboli Ianua. {3}

The sources used, for example, by Howard Levey – evident in his ‘satanic bible’ and his letters – are populist interpretations of the likes of Nietzsche and Ayn Rand, populist books about psychology, with the anonymous polemic titled Might Is Right much plagiarized. Such sources and populist interpretations are also much in evidence in texts written by Aquino, such as The Crystal Tablet of Set, where populist summaries of philosophies and weltanschauungen, ancient and modern, precede a quite minimalist and vague presentation of ‘satanist’ and/or of Temple of Set ideas. Thus, a chapter on ‘ethics’ consists of 12 pages of populist summaries of the likes of Plato, Hegel, Marx, et al, followed by a meagre few paragraphs concerning good and evil in an occult context, and which paragraphs merely present rather cliched personal opinions, such as that “there is thus no easy answer to the question of whether a given magical act is good or evil” and that “it is up to the magician to determine what judgments – by which judges – will be important”. As befits such pseudo-intellectualism, the references in such texts are often to populist works (such as The Social Contract by Robert Ardrey) just as quotations from such people as Plato are invariably in translations, not by Aquino, but by someone else. In contrast, when Myatt writes of ethics and about ‘good and evil’ in chapter IV – Questions of Good, Evil, Honour, and God – of his 2013 book Religion, Empathy, and Pathei-Mathos, he provides passages in Hebrew, Greek, and Arabic, along with his own translations. Similarly, when discussing ethics in his more recent Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos, Myatt provides the relevant Greek texts (such as from the Gospel of John) and his own translations.

It is thus also easy to understand why many supporters of the O9A support the claim that Myatt is Long. For add to his documented exeatic life, to his intellectualism, the fact that he is regarded by academics as “England’s principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution” and you have a person who most definitely does seem to fit the profile of what an ONA person is or should be, with his post-2012 ‘philosophy of pathei mathos’ and recent books such as Tu Es Diaboli Ianua and Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos understood as the musings of someone who, after decades of peregrinations and scholarly study, has found Lapis Philosophicus and who is “living the final apprehension”, with that philosophy, such books, and ‘the last writings of Anton Long’ {4} serving
              “to illuminate the O9A for what it is and always has been, beyond the rhetoric, beyond the polemics, beyond its Labyrinthos Mythologicus, and beyond the assumptions made by others. That is, it is a living hereditary, evolving, repository of esoteric knowledge; part of which accumulated and accumulating knowledge is a scholarly perspective on ancient hermeticism; another part of which is a practical modern means (for those who might be interested) to achieve Adeptship and beyond; another part of which knowledge concerns a New Aeon and the logos necessary to bring that Aeon into being. Other parts of which are Esoteric Chant and Aeonics; and so on. In addition, this body of esoteric knowledge now also contains the insights of someone who has ventured beyond The Abyss, and which particular insights return us to that pagan knowledge, that ancient wisdom, of the Rounwytha way, which is, for those who follow it, the way of a certain type of knowing and of a certain type of living.” {5}

All of which makes it unnecessary for anyone – by they O9A or otherwise – to ‘hype’ Mr Myatt, for just presenting the documented facts about his life, and drawing attention to his intellectualism, his erudition, is sufficient. That life, that intellectualism, ‘the last writings of Anton Long’, Myatt’s ‘philosophy of pathei mathos’ (understood as a modern manifestation of the O9A way of the Rounwytha) and books such as Tu Es Diaboli Ianua and Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos tell the necessary story.

Which story is of a modern Magus; of someone who has spent all of his adult life – half a century – on an esoteric and an exoteric quest. Since such a quest exemplifies what the search for Lapis Philosophicus, for Gnosis, for Wisdom, is all about it is in the final analysis irrelevant if Myatt was or was not the pseudonymous Anton Long. For such a personal quest is the essence of all genuine Occult philosophies and praxises, beyond the labels – the denotata – we or others assign to them, be such labels Left Hand Path, Right Hand Path, Satanist, or O9A.

Which, at least to me and some others, makes Myatt someone to be admired and – perhaps – emulated by those O9A or otherwise.

Let Us Be Honest Again

odal3

Let us be honest, again. Honest in a “politically incorrect” – and of course in a heretical – way.

We are sick and tired of hearing and reading about the ‘holocaust’, the Shoah (which now even has it own yearly semi-religious and ‘official’ remembrance day) given that, as a comrade recently said to us, we should also – for cosmic balance, for fairness – remember just how many millions of German civilians – women, children, old men – were:
(i) killed and suffered because of Allied air raids during World War Two;
(ii) who died of starvation in the last years of that war and the years immediately following it;
(iii) who died in and suffered because of the forced expulsion of Germans from the Eastern territories in the years between 1944 and 1950.

We should also remember (i) just how many German women were raped by advancing Soviet troops between 1944 and 1945, and (ii) just how many German soldiers were summarily executed by Soviet troops or sent to endure years of suffering in Soviet labour camps.

In respect of German deaths from starvation, few if anyone talks or writes about the thousands of starving, emaciated children who lined the streets of destroyed German cities – cities destroyed by Allied bombs, and starvation caused by Allied blockades – and which children begged for food. Few, if anyone, talks or writes about the hundreds of thousands of starving German civilians killed by Allied bombs, many of whose bodies lay rotting for weeks under the rubble of their destroyed cities and towns. Instead, all we hear and read – week after week, month after month, year after year – is how starving and emaciated those in Internment Camps were and how many internees died from starvation, although few, if anyone, talks or writes about such starvation being caused by Allied bombing and by Allied blockades, which bombing destroyed the transport infrastructure of Germany.

Do these millions of German victims have their own remembrance day? No. Are there hundreds of books and documentaries about these German victims? No. Do schoolchildren in the West have lessons about their suffering? No.

Instead, we in the West are regaled every year, every month, every week, almost every day, with stories and propaganda about the Shoah (i) as if to remind us that self-described Zionists had and have a continuing “right” (with the help of America and Britain) to occupy Palestine and dispossess – and laud it over – the Palestinians; and (ii) as if native Europeans – and diaspora Europeans in lands such as America and Canada and Australia – cannot learn about and value their European cultural heritage and cannot live only among their own folk according to their ancient European traditions because to do so is “racist” , or “fascist”, or “nazi” or is “hate speech” and will lead to another ‘holocaust’ even though it seems that there is no scientific evidence whatsoever that the foundation myth of such a holocaust was scientifically feasible {1}. As stated in that referenced article: “the onus of proof for the theory of the holocaust is upon those who have made [a] specific scientific claim, and their proof can only be by scientific means. All the other circumstantial evidence which it is alleged ‘proves’ the theory of the holocaust (such as alleged eye-witness statements; confessions obtained during interrogations), are irrelevant because a particular scientific claim has been made.”

       That even publicly questioning the veracity of the historical event termed the ‘holocaust’ is illegal – a criminal offence – in many Western lands should be sufficient to raise concerns about its veracity and raise questions about why belief in this one historical event is mandatory in such European and non-European lands. Is there any other historical event – in the whole history of humanity – where dissent about its truth is illegal and punishable by imprisonment? No.

It is as if belief in this one historical event has become a religious dogma, with dissent and heresy punished. As if those who are remembered on Holocaust Remembrance Day have or should have “a special place” in our hearts while the millions of Germans and others who suffered and who died because of Allied and Soviet actions and policies are less worthy of being remembered, even if the numbers of Germans and others who suffered and who died because of Allied and Soviet actions and policies arguably number more than those who allegedly died in the ‘holocaust’.

In political terms, the ‘holocaust’ has become a stick to beat those Europeans who express pride in their own folk and in their folkish traditions, and who desire to live among their own folk in communities composed of their own kind. A stick used exclusively against White folk. For exclusive Zionist communities – as in the Zionist entity occupying Palestine – are positively encouraged, just as exclusive expressions of Black culture and other non-White cultures are encouraged, with exclusive expressions of White culture deemed to be “racist” or “fascist” or “nazi” or “hate speech” and censored and outlawed. What utter hypocrisy covered up by propaganda, by compulsory indoctrination of schoolchildren, and by tyrannical, oppressive, laws.

{1} This foundation myth of the holocaust is that millions of people were systemically exterminated in ‘gas chambers’ by the use of Zyklon B. The heretical article The Theory of The Holocaust – see Appendix below – describes the lack of scientific evidence for this claim.

°°°°°°°

Appendix
The Theory of The Holocaust

The so-called holocaust of the Jews during World War Two is not a “proven fact of history” – it is a theory. The central premise – the fundamental assumption – of this theory is that a million or more Jews were killed in “gas chambers” using Zyklon B. This claim has been made for over fifty years, and it is claimed as the main method of killing. [1]

This is a particular scientific claim, about how a certain chemical agent works (or worked) under certain very specific conditions. That is, it is a claim that Zyklon B – a pesticide used to fumigate clothing in order to destroy lice, and which releases hydrogen cyanide gas (HCN) when exposed to air – was used to kill human beings in so-called “gas chambers”.

Some of the particulars of this claim are that the whole gassing procedure (gassing and venting, from the introduction of Zyklon to the opening of the doors) only took one hour at most and often much less time, and that the majority of the killings took place in what looked like “ordinary shower baths” with concrete floors, and occurred even when the ambient temperate was lower than 15 degrees Celsius. Other particulars of this claim are that those opening the doors after this short length of time, and those removing the dead bodies, wore no protective clothing at all – for example, no “gas masks” in case any residue of deadly gas was present, or in case the Zyklon B pellets used were still producing deadly HCN gas.

This very specific method of killing either worked, as described in the so-called “holocaust literature”, or it did not work. If it did work, then the method used is scientifically repeatable, reproducible, via experiments. This is how science functions, and how such claims about a scientific matter are settled. It is scientific evidence, provided by experiments, that matter. [2] This particular scientific claim about how people were killed by Zyklon B – a claim made by those who believe in the theory of the holocaust – has yet to be experimentally verified, according to scientific criteria. Therefore, it is correct and reasonable for people to doubt the veracity of the theory of the holocaust that many people believe in until such time as this specific scientific claim is verified by experimental means.

All the other circumstantial evidence which it is alleged “proves” the theory of the holocaust (such as alleged eye-witness statements; confessions obtained during interrogations), are irrelevant because a particular scientific claim has been made, and if this claim is shown by scientific experiments to be false, then all such other evidence which seems to support the theory will have to re-examined, re-interpreted, and/or rejected.

The onus of proof for the theory of the holocaust is upon those who have made this specific scientific claim, and their proof can only be by scientific means. Those who doubt or who are skeptical about this theory of the holocaust (for whatever reason and from whatever motive), do not have to prove anything, for as it says in Al-Majallah al-Ahkam al ‘Adaliyyah, “The burden of proof is on him who alleges.”

This claim could easily be tested by scientific experiments, which would require the re-construction of an alleged “gas chamber” – as described in the literature of the holocaust theory – and then introducing Zyklon B into this chamber, by the means alleged to have been used according to the literature of the holocaust theory. The chamber would then be vented – using the type of fans alleged to have been used – and then opened, and then tested for any residue of HCN gas. Note that, for the experiment to be valid, all the “experimental apparatus” used would have to constructed according to details given in the extant literature of the holocaust theory, which details derive – or are alleged to derive from – eye-witness statements, confessions of suspects tried for involvement in the alleged holocaust, and from whatever German technical plans or documents that survived from the time which gave details regarding the building of shower-baths in labour camps such as Auschwitz. [3]

The experiments would be conducted using several variables. For instance, (1) With an empty chamber, at various ambient temperatures. (2) With the door being opened at the times claimed by the holocaust literature – from one half hour after introduction of Zyklon B, to around one hour (the maximum time claimed in the holocaust literature). (3) With a chamber full of experimental “dummies” simulating human beings crammed into the chamber, and repeating the variable mentioned in (1) and (2).

To meet acceptable scientific criteria, the results would have to be reproducible by others, as the experiments themselves would have to conducted openly, with impartial, neutral, observers present, and all the findings openly published.

That no such scientific experiments have ever been conducted – or are even planned – is extraordinary, given:

1) That the theory of the holocaust is taught as “fact” in schools and colleges around the world;
2) the billions upon billions of dollars invested in and by the “holocaust industry” for over half a century, and the plethora of “holocaust memorials” around the world;
3) the continuing imprisonment of those, including scientists, who have logically and rationally expressed public doubt about the theory of the holocaust;
4) the use of this theory to aid the establishment of a modern non-Muslim nation in the lands of the Muslims;
5) the conviction – on purely circumstantial evidence – and the subsequent execution and imprisonment of dozens and dozens of people, in the last sixty years, for “participating” in this alleged “holocaust”.

Thus, to repeat what we wrote above, it is correct and reasonable, and indeed rationally necessary, for people to doubt the veracity of the theory of the holocaust until such time as the specific scientific claim, made by the believers in the theory of the holocaust, is verified by experimental means. Until such experiments are conducted, it is also correct, fair and reasonable to call for an immediate end to the irrational and criminal persecution of those who doubt the theory and who ask for scientific proof of the theory.

°°°°°

Notes

1) A million or so, alone, is claimed for Auschwitz. This is what is taught now in schools, everywhere; see, for example, the school lesson plan, Learning and Remembering about Auschwitz-Birkenau, produced by the Yad Vashem organization in occupied Palestine.

2) Logically, if a person believes in the modern holocaust theory, ergo they accept the minor premise of what is the fundamental “holocaust” syllogism, which premise is the specific method of killing described above, which specific method involves a particular scientific claim, and which scientific claim requires experimental proof.

Thus, all persons who now accept or who believe in the modern theory of the holocaust, are implicitly accepting, on faith or trust (and rather illogically), that this so far unproven scientific claim is true.

3) According to experiments conducted by German scientists in 1942 CE – and recorded in the publication “Die Einsatzfähigkeit der Blausäure bei tiefen Temperaturen” published in 1942 CE – under ideal laboratory conditions, Zyklon B granules are can still lethal for at least two hours after they have been activated.

These experiments also showed that what does affect the release of HCN gas is the ambient temperature, with the granules releasing more HCN gas more quickly at higher temperatures, and releasing “most” of their gas – under ideal laboratory conditions – in just less than an hour when the temperature was 20 degrees Celsius, or higher. Given that the ambient temperature in the alleged “gas chambers” was often much lower than 20 degrees Celsius – according to accounts contained in the holocaust literature of the holocaust theorists – it would be expected that it would be well over an hour before the Zyklon B pellets released all their HCN gas. Which would mean the pellets would still be producing deadly HCN gas when the door to the chambers were opened.

Western Paganism And Hermeticism


 

Richard Moult: The Green Damask Room

David Myatt And The Renaissance of Western Culture

We present here a selection of recent articles about Western paganism and hermeticism, indebted as those articles are to Myatt’s translations of texts from the ancient Corpus Hermeticism and his post-2013 writings such as his book Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos. Myatt’s thesis in that book is that Western paganism is essentially the classical paganism of Ancient Greece and Rome and represents the ethos of the culture of the West, which ethos the Hebraic religion of Christianity supplanted. It is our view that those translations, the associated commentaries, and such books enable an insight into, and thus the evolution of, Western culture.

An evolution away “from mythoi and anthropomorphic deities (theos and theoi) to an appreciation of the numinous sans denotatum and sans religion,” and thence to a new, ineluctably Western, pagan philosophy.

They Arrive, They Depart, They Move On

Sometimes, when the “sh** hits the fan” – that is, in the case of the Order Of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA), when some journalist (anonymous or otherwise) or some Media outlet makes accusations about the “neo-nazi” O9A, about how “sinister” and subversive or “dangerous” the O9A is, and makes accusations about some of those alleged to be somehow associated with the O9A – then some of those so publicly “shamed” for associating with or who have “attributed their purpose and themes to the philosophies of the Order of Nine Angles” announce their departure from the O9A.

As occurred yet again and recently:

                  “In light of recent circumstances, public and private, I am taking this opportunity to announce my departure from the Order of Nine Angles. This decision comes not only due to the recent media scrutiny, but also also from a place of honest self-evaluation, as well as some needed consultation from those closest to me. In short, my continued involvement with the O9A praxis is no longer compatible with the artistic and spiritual goals that propel me, and Hvile I Kaos, forward.”

Some after publicly announcing they are “leaving” the O9A go on to be critical of and/or make accusations about the ONA, such as the following comment from someone who obviously was too busy to read such O9A texts as ἀρρενόθηλυς: Alchemical And Hermetic Antecedents Of The Seven Fold Way Of The Order Of Nine Angles, or the scholarly Geryne of Satan,

                  “I am earnestly demoralized by the apparent reality that the majority of the ONA is too stupid to read the back of a cereal box.”

That those associated with the O9A continue to publish informative texts such as O9A Ontology And The Ruhaniyyat, and Another Academic Misinterpretation, and Sorcery In Virgil’s Aeneid, and Baphomet – An Esoteric Signification somehow seems to have escaped the notice of those who announce their “leaving” and go on to become vociferous O9A critics.

That said, for centuries the Rounwytha way was the mystic way of rural folk who could neither read nor write…

        It is most amusing that many who announce their “leaving” have failed to understand just what the O9A is, and thus why there is, esoterically, no “joining” and no “leaving” some “entity” designated by the term “Order of Nine Angles”.

However, given recent public comments by people who have renounced, or distanced themselves from, the O9A it seems appropriate that we reprint here an O9A item published some five years ago which describes such departures, such leaving, such disavowal of the O9A, as natural and expected.

On Leaving, Joining, Leadership, and Time

In respect of the Order of Nine Angles, the majority of individuals who show an interest in, or who declare they are ONA/O9A or are associated with us, sooner or later leave or move on to other things, be such things Occult, personal, or otherwise; with their motives or reasons for such a leaving or for such a moving-on being almost as varied as the individuals themselves.

Most who leave or move-on do so after a few months or after a year or so, and do so quietly, with no explanation, public or private, although one or two will make, and latterly have made, some public announcement, sometimes critical of the ONA or critical of those involved with it or assumed to be involved with it, or critical of what they assume or believe is the way the ONA is developing. Sometimes someone who has been associated with – or even been a part of – the ONA for some years will leave.

Does all this – all this coming and going, and such pronouncements about leaving – matter? No, it does not matter. Why not? Because it is expected, and natural; and has been occurring for over thirty years.

It does not matter (i) because of the aims and goals of the ONA; (ii) because of the time-scale – of decades and centuries – on which the ONA operates; (iii) because of how the ONA is structured; and (iv) because of what the ONA really is.

As mentioned some years ago:

                  “One of the basic aims of the ONA is to create genuine Adepts – that is, individuals who question, who are rational; who possess genuine magickal skills; who have gone to and beyond their own limits. Essentially, the ONA is a LHP organization – there is no morality; no limits; no sycophancy. In fact, the ONA in its essence is profoundly anarchic, and may be said to preach and practice genuine anarchy {1}. The ONA system, such as it is, is for only limited guidance, on a direct individual basis, to be given. The novice, the Initiates, are expected to learn by trial and error, by practical experience […]
                  It needs to be made clear, yet again, that every Initiate is expected to work many things out for themselves, that the ONA is only a guide; it is practical experience, self-insight, and self-honesty, which matter.” Source – http://web.archive.org/web/20111004064402/http://nineangles.wordpress.com/reply-to-some-criticism/

As Anton Long wrote in 2009 ev regarding those following the traditional praxis of the Seven Fold Way:

                  “Over the decades, several people have come and gone – some only achieved External Adept; a few achieve Internal Adept. Of those who wander away, and give up or renounce their Sinister quest, one or two return, having learnt much – about themselves – during their exile.
                  Yet some of those who wander away or who may renounce their quest may still have done some useful work; may still have presenced the Sinister in some way, and thus have contributed something, or affected some changes, however small. Some of these may even have been manipulated into doing such things, into contributing such things, by a Master, or a Mistress, with their leaving or their renunciation a sign of their failure.
                  For such renunciations – whatever the reasons, or the reasons such people tell themselves – are expected, and indeed natural; part of the selection process itself. Those who go have failed, and proven themselves unsuitable; for the real, and the most important test, is that which lies beyond Internal Adept and which signifies the change from Adept to Master/Mistress. Of those who thus progress beyond the Abyss, there have been no renunciations.
                  Each Grade, of Internal Magick, is thus a test, a selection; and the move away from each Grade toward the next is also itself a test, a selection, and one which lasts many an alchemical season – in exoteric-speak, which lasts for some or often many many years.
                  Again, such people, such failures, should be viewed in the perspective of centuries: of the progression toward our Sinister goals, our disruption of the Old Order, our presencings of the acausal darkness, and the emergence of the New Aeon, whose Sinister magickal energies are already being felt, by some, and whose exoteric affects are slowly causing causal changes.” Source – http://web.archive.org/web/20090126085846/http://www.nineangles.info/interview-119.html

In addition, and importantly, two things need to remembered. First, that the Order of Nine Angles is and always has been based on the principle of

                  “self-replicating self-contained units; that is, based on the seeding, development and propagation of certain causal forms, and thence on the establishment of independent groups and independent individuals who would be freely provided with all the texts and materials necessary to either: (1) if they chose, to follow the Seven Fold Way on their own without any direct personal [centralized] guidance; or (2) to develop their own system based upon or inspired by the ONA, its causal forms, praxis, and mythos. These groups and individuals then would or could be the genesis of other seedlings, with some forms – such as Insight Roles – when used by such people aiding the sinister infiltration of the societies of the West.” Source: https://omega9alpha.wordpress.com/the-sinister-game-2/

Second, that the ONA has and always has had both an exoteric [causal] and an esoteric [acausal/Aeonic] purpose and nature; a dual nature [sinister/numinous; sinisterly-numinous] manifest in (α) a leaderless, a non-structured, non-hierarchical collective (or collection) of (often clandestine) individuals, groups, and nexions, who are all – in some way or other, and in whole or in part – guided by or inspired by the esoteric philosophy of Anton Long {2}, and in (ω) the ancestral and occult pathei-mathos of the individual Rounwytha and of the Inner ONA. Thus, α [alpha] implies – necessitates – the continuing development/reformation/counter-reformation of ‘the theory and praxis of the ONA’ by both individuals and groups, sans sycophancy, with the consequent subversion of existing forms and structures and the development of new ones; while ω [omega] implies – necessitates – the pursuit, over decades, of Lapis Philosophicus by a few (often reclusive) individuals and thus them adding to not only the occult pathei-mathos of the ONA but to the ancestral pathei-mathos germane to all human beings.

But it is only to be expected that only a few, now, will appreciate and understand all of this. Meanwhile, people will continue to ‘join’ and to leave what is exoterically known and exoterically described as The Order of Nine Angles.

A useful, working, definition of anarchy is “that way of living which regards the authority of The State as unnecessary and possibly harmful, and which instead prefers the free and individual choice of mutual and non-hierarchical co-operation”.

Appreciating The Apolitical Deofel Quartet

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

Those who have studied O9A esotericism in detail, and those who have an intuitive or artistic appreciation of the Sinister-Numinous aesthetic of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A), know that the O9A in essence is apolitical, regarding all political forms and all political ideologies as causal abstractions, some of which forms may be useful for a while as exeatic learning experiences – as Insight Rôles – for some individuals in the early years of their decades-long journey along the O9A Seven Fold Way. But all of which causal abstractions – from politics, to religions, to sociological and psychological theories and posited archetypes – are surpassed, left behind, understood as irrelevant – when the individual undertakes and successfully emerges from the ordeal of The Abyss.

Which ordeal reveals The Unity, the affective acausality, beyond the illusive, the mundane, dialectic of opposing opposites; an illusive dialectic exemplified by “choosing sides” such as, in terms of political abstractions, “Left Wing” and “Right Wing”.

Those conversant with O9A esotericism will know that the novels of the O9A Deofel Quartet present

{quote}
                  “much of the diverse aural traditions as AL [Anton Long] received them: as stories about people, their interactions; their ‘satanic’ or esoteric views and beliefs; and about certain events that involved those people. In The Deofel Quartet he simply reworked the factual material – as writers of fiction are wont to do – in order to make an interesting story, in the process obscuring the identities of those involved and sometimes their place of residence or work; added some entertaining details (as in the ‘astral battles’ between goodies and baddies in Falcifer, of a kind now familiar – decades later – from the Harry Potter stories) and concatenated certain events in order to provide ‘action’ in a limited time-frame.
                  Thus, the fictional stories not only compliment other O9A material but provide a ‘different way into’ the complex O9A mythos; a way that many will find more interesting (and certainly more entertaining) than thousands of pages of sometimes polemical and sometimes ponderous O9A factual texts, and a way that especially places the O9A’s satanism into perspective, Aeonically and otherwise.”
{/quote}

None of the novels of the Quartet concern politics. None of them deal with political revolution or concern themselves with “terrorism”. None of them concern “neo-nazism”. None of them involve “racism” or are “anti-gay” or misogynistic. In truth, the novels – ahead of their time – contain strong female characters (such as Fiona in The Greyling Owl, and Lianna in The Giving) as well as positive gay characters (such as Fenton in The Greyling Owl).

To understand the O9A is to understand how and why The Deofel Quartet presences O9A esotericism: as involving real individuals some of whom (as in Falcifer) may have an interest in Satanism and the Occult, and some of whom (as in The Greyling Owl) are not interested in, or appear not to be interested in, Satanism and the Occult. As readers of such works as Falcifer and The Giving and The Temple of Satan discover, esoterically the O9A is far beyond even the causal abstraction, the causal form, termed “Satanism”.

Thus, as described in The Temple Of Satan,

{quote}
                  “All of [the books], and the manuscripts bound like books, were about alchemy, magick or the Occult. He could read the Latin of the medieval manuscripts and books, but what they related did not interest him as the later books brought forth no desire to read further.
                  Even the Black Book of Satan, resting on the table, seemed irrelevant to him. They were all compilations of shadow words, appearing to Thurstan to fall short of the aim that the searchers who had written them should have aimed for. His instinctive feeling was to observe in a contemplative way some facet of the cosmos – to stand outside in the dark of the night and listen for the faint music that travelled down to Earth from the stars – rather the enclose himself in the warm womb of a house to read the writings of others. Demons, spells, hidden powers, the changing of base metal to gold, even the promises of power and change for himself, were not important to Thurstan, and he left the library with its stored knowledge and forbidden secrets and lurking gods, to walk in the moonlit garden.
                  The stars were not singing for him – or he could not hear them above the turmoil of his thought…
                  He moved, like an old man pained by his limbs, through the cold and sometimes swirling mist along a path that took him toward the Mynd and up, steeply, to its level summit where he stood, high above the mist, to watch the mist-clotted valleys below.
                  The heather was beginning to show the glory of its colour, and he walked through it northbound along the cracked and stony road stopping often to turn around and wait. But no one and nothing came to him – no voices, song or sigh […]
                  The very Earth itself seemed to be whispering to him the words of this truth. He began to sense, slowly, that there was for him real magick here where moorland fell to form deep hollows home to those daughters of Earth known as springs and streams, and where the Neolithic pathway had heard perhaps ten million stories. No wisps of clouds came to spoil the glory of the sun as it rose over the mottled wavy hills beyond the Stretton valley miles distant and below. No noise to break the almost sacred silence heard. For an instant it seemed as if some divinity, strange but pure, came into the world, and smiled.”

Thus, The Greyling Owl deals

{quote}
                  “with a type of ‘hidden sinister sorcery’ that owes little or nothing to what has become accepted as ‘the Western occult tradition’, satanic or otherwise, with its demons, its invocations and evocations, its rituals, and people dressing up in robes. Instead, it concerns someone being manipulated, brought into a position of influence, without even knowing or suspecting there is an occult aspect; someone – in modern parlance – being ‘groomed’ to at some future time use that influence for a sinister purpose as directed by the person or persons to whom he is now indebted.
                  That is, there is a revealing of how the O9A often operates, and has operated, in the real world; and how O9A people are often secretive, with their occult connections, and their interest in the sinister, unknown to colleagues and friends. The title itself gives a clue, for the word greyling is used in reference to Hipparchia Semele (commonly referred to as the Grayling), a type of butterfly found in Britain and one which is ‘a master of disguise and can mysteriously disappear as soon as it lands, perfectly camouflaged’. Hence the title seems to, esoterically, suggest the pairing of the ‘mistress of disguise’ (Fiona) with ‘the owl’ (Mickleman) and which working together will enable sinister deeds to be done, most possibly by Mickleman (under the guidance of Fiona) influencing or recruiting people from within his natural academic environment.”

Thus, the following paean to Sapphic love, from Breaking The Silence Down, the novel often considered as making the Deofel ‘quartet’ into a quintet of esoteric novels:

{quote}
                  “Blissful, they returned to their home. The rain ceased with their arrival and in the subdued light in the now cramped sitting room of their bungalow, Rachael sat at her piano to transform herself and the night. Diane listened and watched, entranced. Rachael’s playing created a new world and a new woman, and Diane watched this strange woman create from the instrument of wood, steel and tone a universe of beauty, ecstasy and light.
                  Bach, Beethoven – it made no difference what or for how long she played. But, as it always had since that night, Beethoven’s Opus 111 fascinated her with feelings, visions, and stupendous, world-creating thought. It imbued her with insight, and a love that wanted to envelope Rachael and consume her.
                  It was pleasure and pain to watch Rachael transform herself through the act of her playing into a goddess she would die for. No reason touched her while she listened. There was, she knew, no greater life than this, no greater feeling and she wanted to immolate herself with Rachael’s ecstasy, immolate world upon world with this glory and passion which no male god described.
                  Then the silence, while clamoured notes faded and dimmed light framed. There were no more tears Diane could cry and she waited while Rachael slowly rose and offered her hand. She – the goddess within – was smiling and Diane allowed herself to be led. The music in her head, the memories and secret dreams of youth: all were before her, embodied in flesh and she had only to kiss the slightly scented lips or see the secret wisdom hidden in the eyes to reach the summit of her life, slowly, in the dim corners of the bedroom’s reflected dark.”
{/quote}

Given that most O9A critics have never bothered to read the O9A “deofel quintet” – or, if they have, have miserably failed to appreciate its esoteric significance – it is not surprising that they have such a biased, mundane, view of the O9A.

Hvile I Kaos and Deathwave Nexion: The Verdict

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

Editorial Note: We reproduce here a statement regarding Hvile I Kaos and Deathwave Nexion which reveals an initiated understanding of the O9A. As those conversant with O9A esotericism and praxises know, the O9A principle of the authority of individual judgment means that O9A nexions, O9A lone operatives, and artists inspired by or associating themselves with the O9A, are diverse in character, diverse in beliefs, and diverse in how they presence the ‘sinister-numinous’ ethos and aesthetic of the O9A.

In addition, O9A initiates also know that the O9A, from its original presencing in the 1970s ev, has always had ‘Sapphic’ and ‘gay’ nexions, with several of the novels of the O9A Deofel Quartet containing positive gay or bisexual characters: for instance Fenton in The Greyling Owl, Denise in Falcifer, and the bisexual Melanie in The Temple of Satan; positive portrayals still risqué in the 1970s when Falcifer and The Greyling Owl were written and privately circulated among O9A nexions. The novel Breaking The Silence Down – often considered as making the ‘quartet’ into a quintet of esoteric novels – is a paean to Sapphic love.

TWS Nexion
9 December 2018 ev

°°°°°°°

Four months before the Quietus article came out, hurling false accusations at us of having a right-wing agenda, DeathMetal.org reviewed the Hvile I Kaos album.

This was done in the height of the “Agios O Fotia” CD release. The following comments section clearly displays three parties representing the art, 1) Kakophonix-Cellist and Composer, main artist of Hvile I Kaos, 2) Julvarg, director of Deathwave Nexion and 3) D.A.R.G., author of article and respected voice in our circles.

The comments section begins with individuals of a Right Wing and conservative outlook condemning Hvile I Kaos for working with bands that support LGBT individuals. Kakophonix and Julvarg outwardly condemn Nazism, homophobia, Anti-LGBT, and the reactionary mind.

They argue on behalf of the O9A’s history of wide and diversive manifestations based upon the authority of individual judgement and personal wyrd. D.A.R.G. confirms these intimations, suggesting the argumentative Right Wingers to actually gain some academic understanding before relying on presumptions.

This dialogue was done by parties who were not under the critical mass of a media smear campaign, and indeed did so with full understanding that polemicising with these principles in the public foray could have actually been damaging to all parties. It is therefore irrefutable, that the Quietus article, is poorly researched and highly erroneous, particularly and positively incorrect concerning Hvile I Kaos and Deathwave Nexion.

The papers right now are all covering the arrest of “three men aged from 17 to 21 including a university professor’s son, on terror charges […]

Their main ‘crime’ appears to be circulating violent images created by the Sonnenkrieg Division, a British version of a US neo-Nazi group called the Atomwaffen Division […]

It’s important to understand that the little clique of self-styled ideologues behind both groups are not primarily political in any way. They are, quite simply, avowed Satanists […]

This is not some wild theory or slur; it is simply established fact. The Order of Nine Angles is an all too real Satanist organisation, which encourages members to infiltrate extremist political movements, whose members might be susceptible to conversion.

Vindex, Honour, and The Tyranny of the Magian

odal3

°°°°°°°°°

Editorial Note: We re-issue here, in full and in a slightly revised (updated) version, the classic O9A text Vindex, Honour, and The Tyranny of the Magian which forms part of the Vindex mythos; a mythos developed by David Myatt during his National Socialist decades, and appropriated and evolved by the O9A.

The Myattian Vindex mythos was described in two seminal texts, Vindex: Destiny of the West published in 1984, and in The Mythos of Vindex, written c. 1999 with a revised edition issued on 2005. For an overview of the Myattian mythos, qv. Myatt’s Mythos Of Vindex.

As mentioned in the following text: “In respect of the particular esoteric Way of the Order of Nine Angles, our Kindred Tribes and our Niners strike at the very heart of the tyranny of the impersonal State […] It is the mythos of Vindex which possesses the dark sorcery (the magick – exoteric, Internal and Aeonic) necessary to defeat the Magian.”

Classic O9A Texts

Vindex, Honour, and The Tyranny of the Magian

Exoteric Exegesis: The Magian Ethos

Understood esoterically, the Magian ethos and its savants (such as the hubriati) and its servants and foot-soldiers (such as Homo Hubris) are the current enemy of those who, by both practical and esoteric means, seek to create an evolutionary Galactic Imperium imbued with an evolutionary (Promethean, Faustian, Acausal) ethos.

The Magian ethos is a materialistic, enervating, de-evolutionary, set of causal abstractions. These abstractions include – (1) the idea/ideal of the nation-State; (2) the un-aristocratic, vulgar (plebeian) idea and fraud termed “democracy” (where the privileged hubriati rule in the “name of the people”); (3) the abstract idea/ideal of a impersonal (non-honour-based) law administered by so-called national and international “courts of law”; (4) the trickery and wage-slavery that is usury and the modern financial institutions (and the capitalism) based on such trickery and wage-slavery; and, most importantly, (5) mandatory personal taxation on earnings (income tax), and which mandatory income tax plus taxation on goods, property, and commodities (all collected by and enforced by the State/nation) keeps the whole Magian system going.

These causal abstractions now enmesh the world. And they represent a new type of tyranny; a new enslavement of our human species.

These abstractions have replaced living cultures, and their often rural communities, with a vacuous, artificial, nationalism, with abstract ideologies and religions, and with an increasingly artificial way of urban living. [1] These abstractions have replaced the living law of personal honour with the impersonal tyranny of State and international law, so that the individual – especially in the Western world – is now in both theory and in practice powerless before the might of the State (the forces of so-called “law and order”) in their place of residence.

For the State now has the power to arrest and detain anyone (often only “on suspicion” of having transgressed some State-made law) and can use any amount of force it deems necessary to subdue and detain someone. The forces of the State – if they follow the so-called “due process” the State has established and maintains – can smash their way into the home of anyone at anytime, and rifle through and take away whatever they want, as the State has the power to prosecute and imprison (and sometimes execute) anyone it deems has broken some law which it, the State and its flunkies, have manufactured.

Thus, no longer is there a choice – voluntary, by the individual, or allowed by some ruler or potentate – of exile; of beginning a new life elsewhere, free from the clutches of some impersonal authority. There is no longer the choice (unless you are one of the hubriati, of course) of not paying taxation, nor the choice of going to live somewhere where there is no taxation (unless you are one of the hubriati, of course).

In the same way, the powerful Media (newspapers, television, and so on) can make or break the reputation of any person, especially if it is deemed “in the public interest”, which means in accord with the Magian ethos that has come to dominate the West and is now spreading, like the debilitating virus it is, to other lands.

In theory – and often in practice – the individual has no rights which the State and its flunkies cannot take away, just as there is now hardly anywhere now on Earth where an outlaw, or a person, can go to avoid the law enforcement officers and intelligence agencies of the State (or to start a new life), with international travel (and often national travel) being monitored and controlled by passports, Visas, and other mechanisms of State control and State security.

This is sheer tyranny; the emasculation of the individual before the might and power of the State – and before collocations of States, such as the European Union, and the United Nations [2], with their own laws, their own Courts, their own restrictions on what a person can and cannot do. All mandatory taxation, but especially that on income – enforced by imprisonment or the threat of it – is both theft and a means of control.

This is sheer tyranny; the control of the individual from the cradle to the grave, and the de-evolutionary stifling of the real potential of the individual, which potential all esoteric (Occult) Ways understand and appreciate and which all such Ways seek in some manner to develop.

           In our view, our potential – as human beings – lies in four things.

(1) In understanding ourselves – our psyche – and in developing various latent (Occult) faculties, and thus, through a balance between internal (esoteric) and external (exoteric) experiences, learning to fully know and control (discipline) ourselves.

(2) In developing and in employing – by pathei-mathos, by learning from difficult, amoral, and challenging practical experiences – our own personal judgement, and thus becoming and being unique individuals with our own weltanschauung.

(3) In understanding the true Reality (Cosmic, and personal) that lies behind the causal abstractions we human beings have manufactured for millennia, and which constrain and control us, and which we have often used to constrain and control others. Among such causal abstractions are, as mentioned above, all religions, all forms of “politics”, and of course, the idea/ideal of The State, the nation, and of impersonal law.

(4) In leaving our childhood home – this planet – and so, by discovering and exploring new places, by living in new ways, by overcoming challenges, we can become mature, and evolve to become different types of human beings, a new species.

All genuine Occult Ways – to a greater or lessor degree – seek to do the first of these four things. The other three are, currently, esoterically, mostly the preserve of the Occult Way of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A).

Thus has the O9A made the disruption and replacement of the current order, the current Aeon – represented by the tyranny of the Magian State and the Magian ethos – its most fundamental practical priority. Thus is our Dark Sorcery – exoteric and esoteric – directed at everything Magian and everything, and everyone, imbued with and supportive of the Magian ethos.For from this practical and magickal disruption and destruction, our New Aeon – our Dark Galactic Imperium – will emerge.

The Esotericism of Tribes and Vindex

In respect of the particular esoteric Way of the Order of Nine Angles, our Kindred Tribes and our Niners strike at the very heart of the tyranny of the impersonal State.

For instance, understood esoterically, our Kindred Tribes are Acausal Sorcery, as are our traditional nexions with their traditional kindred rites and their Seven-Fold Way, and as are our Niners – our freelance operatives – who embody the authentic personal judgement which the nation-State abhors and whose ways of living are contrary both in theory and in practice to the mechanisms of control of, and to the subservience demanded by, the nation-State.

In addition, our tribes restore the natural balance that depends on personal honour and on our natural, human, tribal – communal – way of living. [See Appendix 1 – Kindred Tribes and The Tyranny of The State.]

Understood esoterically, The Vindex Mythos is also Acausal Sorcery. That is, the original (non-esoteric) form has been and is being used in an esoteric manner to provoke Change in an evolutionary way, creating thus a new darkly-numinous causal form, new archetypes; and which manufactured esoteric form, and which archetypes, may not be perceived or understood as esoteric by many or most of those who are influenced, inspired, and/or changed by the mythos in its non-esoteric (and original) form.

In essence, this mythos is: (1) a new, non-esoteric, manifestation of The Law of Kindred-Honour; (2) the new warriors who, upholding the law of personal honour, establish new tribal ways of living in opposition to the tyranny of the Magian abstraction of the nation-State; and (3) a new and natural balance between the male and the female aspects of human beings, manifest in new archetypes.

This last point – these new archetypes – are important, if currently misunderstood, both exoterically and esoterically. For these new male and female archetypes (to be admired, emulated, and seen as rôle-models) arise from the reality that the new law of personal honour applies equally to both men and women, and that no distinction is made between male, and female, warriors, and between what can be achieved. That is, the only distinction that matters is living by the code of personal honour that forms the very basis of both Niners and of new tribes, and it is this equality of living and aspirations and deeds which will provide the necessary rôle-models – the real-life personal examples – for individuals, with such rôle-models being in stark contrast to those of all modern societies.

Thus, the mythos of Vindex replaces the old law of the old Aeon with our new law of personal honour, and replaces the archetypes of the current Aeon with our new archetypes – from which new archetypes new rôle-models, anti-Magian in their very being, are emerging.

Magian Archetypes and Modern Rôle-models

For centuries, several archetypes of the Magian ethos have affected the peoples of the West. One of these archetypes was, of course, The Nazarene: the Saviour, through, by and with whom, one might find some abstract “peace and salvation.”

From this archetype there developed, for instance, the rôle-model of The Good Nazarene. The essence of The Good Nazarene was doing what the Nazarene Church, or some Nazarene preacher, said was good, and/or what the Nazarene Good-Book said was good.

Another old archetype was and is The Dutiful Tax-Payer. The essence of The Dutiful Tax-Payer is to render to The State/the monarch/the government/the ruler/the potentate what is believed to belong to them – to wit, the right to levy taxes, and the right to rule, to govern subjects.

Now, while these archetypes – and rôle-models deriving from them – still fester within the psyche of the peoples of the West, new rôle-models have emerged, aided and abetted by the Magian ethos.

From the dozen or so new Magian rôle-models, we might select a sample. For instance, one male rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris, is The Good-Timer. The essence of The Good-Timer is self-expression – they feel they have a “right” to express and indulge themselves, and lack any real control of themselves. For them, the world – and often other people – are a means, a personal source of pleasure, enjoyment, and opportunity. Central to The Good-Timer is “having mates”, using vulgar language, and being “a real man” – and these “real men”, with their mates of course, can be found in most cities and towns of the modern West especially on Friday and Saturday nights where they will be “having a good time”.

Sometimes, the male Good-Timer takes his cue from some “celebrity” hyped by the Media – some sportsman, or some so-called “film star”, for example, who always seems to have a good-time, who can afford a luxurious life-style, and who seems adept at showing how badly behaved they can be, in public and in private.

Another male rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris, is The Patriotic Citizen. The essence of The Patriotic Citizen is a sense of duty to some Magian abstraction, such as The State, the nation, or to “the law and order” as manufactured and maintained by the State, the nation, or even, now, some supra-national grouping, such as the United Nations. Whatever, The Patriotic Citizen – educated (aka brainwashed) by The State since childhood, and with many past Patriotic Citizen rôle-models to choose from – can be relied on to go fight whatever enemies the State, or their nation, tell them to fight, and relied on to uphold and enforce whatever law their State, or their nation, manufactures. In many ways, this rôle-model evolved out of the earlier archetype of The Dutiful Tax-Payer.

Another male rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris, is The Celebrity Rebel. The essence of The Celebrity Rebel is the belief that one is being rebellious, and “standing out from the crowd”, and doing something which is outré and (they believe) possibly forbidden and dangerous.

Often, the wannabe male Celebrity Rebel takes his cue from some fictional character, portrayed in some film for example, or written about in some book; sometimes, even from some real person, hyped and possibly romanticised by the Media, whose deeds have not in any serious way threatened the status quo and whose ideas do not and will not in any serious way threaten the status quo. Classic examples of The Celebrity Rebel are, of course, Aleister Crowley – hilariously dubbed the wickedest man in the world for simply indulging himself and his fantasies, and now regarded as an influential icon of “rebellion” – and Howard Stanton Levey (aka Anton LaVey), the archetypal Magian charlatan and plagiarist, now hilariously regarded as the founder of some sort of modern rebellious philosophy.

One female rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris is the female equivalent of the male The Good-Timer. For the female Good-Timer, appearance and being fashionable and accepted by one’s peers are important, although they follow their male Good-Timers by needing to “have mates”, by using vulgar language, and by being found in most cities and towns of the modern West, especially on Friday and Saturday nights where they will be “having a good time”.

Another female rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris, is The Lawful Feminist. The essence of The Lawful Feminist is a desire for some abstract “equality” – to have their share of the pie given to them by the Magian System, by The State.

Notice how all these and similar rôle-models are no real, practical, threat to the Magian status quo, to Magian abstractions.

The good-timers, for instance, can have their parties, their intoxications, their sexual trysts, their raucous music, their means of entertainment and of diversion – from fast sporty cars to luxury gadget goods to stag parties to holidays abroad where they can pretend and delude themselves that they are “exploring” and/or “discovering themselves”. But they never threaten the status quo, and although some of them might end up in jail, most often they become, in their middle and later years, either part of The System, and thus tax-paying citizens, their youthful rebellion over, or they subside on welfare or survive by means of petty crime and which petty crime, while a minor annoyance to The System and its citizens, is not a threat to the tyrannical existence of The State, for The State has its Patriotic Citizens to aid and save it.

Similarly, the wannabe Celebrity Rebels can and do rebel – but only a little (like getting high on weed), but always stop short of not paying their taxes, stop short of taking up arms against The State, and are almost always being reminded (by their peer Celebrity Rebels) to “obey the law of the land” (with the occasional exception made where that exception does not threaten The State, such as personally indulging in intoxicants).

The Lawful Feminists, for example, seldom if ever really want revolution to destroy and replace The State. Instead, they desire change through either political, social, and legal, reform, or through advocacy of some form of socialist/communist State, thus swapping one Magian causal abstraction (the capitalist/democratic State) for another Magian causal abstraction (the Marxist/socialist utopian State). All the many variants of The Lawful Feminist rôle-model, almost without exception, regard the abstract impersonal law of the modern State as necessary and important, and indeed as a “guarantor of their rights”.

Vindexian Rôle-models

Contrast these sample Magian rôle-models with some of our new rôle-models.

We have The Deadly Outlaw. The essence of The Deadly Outlaw is that they are real outlaws – outside the laws of The State, which they reject. Instead, they live by their own laws, based on the law of personal honour, and which law means that they would prefer to die fighting rather than surrender to the forces of The State, for such a surrender to such people who obey such abstract impersonal dishonourable laws, would be a personal humiliation and an affront to their honour and their dignity as outlaws.

We have The Tribal Warrior. The essence of The Tribal Warrior is that they belong to a tribe, a close-knit clan, all or most of whom they know personally, and trust, and many of whom they will be related to. This tribe is their family; their extended family to whom they are bound by ties of honour, blood, duty, and loyalty. This tribe and their honour – their own personal honour and the honour of their tribe – come before anything and everything else, and especially before their own life. Thus, they reject The State, the nation – all modern abstractions – in favour of a new tribal living, based on honour. They also reject usury, mandatory taxation, and the abstraction which is money, preferring where practical the ancient, natural, way of barter.

We have The Tribal Chief. The essence of The Tribal Chief is that The Chief (who can be either male or female) guides their tribe by virtue of their experience, knowledge, insight, honour, and arête – that is, by their excellence of honourable personal character. Their first loyalty is to their tribe – to its honour, its prosperity, its freedom – and not to themselves.

Finally, we have the archetypes of Vindex, and The Warriors of Vindex. Vindex is The Avenger – the practical, fighting, warrior (male, or female) who, with the help of warrior tribes, takes on and defeats the forces of The Magian, represented as these forces are now by powerful impersonal States such as America where the Magian ethos thrives and controls.

The Warriors of Vindex are those tribes, and those Deadly Outlaws, who come together under the charismatic leadership of Vindex, to write their names, and that of their tribes, into the history of our human species, and who represent, par excellence, the triumph of aristocratic personal honour over the lifeless, impersonal tyrannical abstractions of the Magians, over the dishonour of the Hubriati, and over the plebeian, self-indulgent, nature of Homo Hubris.

Conclusion

It should be understood that it is the mythos of Vindex which is or which can be the practical genesis of The Galactic Imperium, as it is the mythos of Vindex which possesses the dark sorcery (the magick – exoteric, Internal and Aeonic) necessary to defeat the Magian and that untermensch species, Homo Hubris (aka mundane mundanes), who are not only the product of the Magian ethos but who keep the Magian ethos alive and their Magian masters in power, to the detriment of our evolution.

For, in essence, the mythos of Vindex replaces the archetypes of the current Aeon with our new archetypes, and from which new archetypes new rôle-models, anti-Magian in their very being, are emerging and will continue to emerge.

Addendum

A Note on Some Terms

Causal Abstractions

Abstractions (aka causal abstractions) are manifestations of the primary (causal) nature of mundanes, and are manufactured by mundanes in their mundane attempt to understand the world, themselves, and the causal Universe. Exoterically, abstractions re-present the mundane simplicity of causal linearality – of causal reductionism, of a simple cause-and-effect, of a limited causal thinking.

All abstractions are devoid of Dark-Empathy and the perspective of acausality, and thus are redolent of, or directly manifest, materialism and the Untermensch ethos derived from such materialism.

Understood exoterically, an abstraction is the manufacture, and use of, some idea, ideal, “image” or category, and thus some generalization, and/or some assignment of an individual or individuals to some group or category. The positing of some “perfect” or “ideal” form, category, or thing, is part of abstraction.

Abstractions hide the true nature of Reality – which is both causal and acausal, and which true nature can be apprehended and understood by means of The Dark Arts, and thus by following the Occult way from Initiate, to Adept, and beyond. According to the O9A, the so-called Occult Arts – and especially the so-called Satanism – of others are manifestations of causal abstractions, lacking as they do the learning of the skills of Dark-Empathy, Acausal-Thinking, and Acausal Sorcery, and thus lacking as they do the ability to develope our latent human faculties and our latent acausal character.

Drecc/Niner

The Way of the Drecc and the Niner are the Ways of living a practical exeatic, adversarial, life with the Niner working alone or with a trusted partner, and with the Drecc working in the company of their own family-kindred and/or with a gang or tribe which they either form or join.

Homo Hubris

A type of mundane, and a new sub-species of the genus, Homo, which new sub-species has evolved out of the industrial revolution and the imposition of both capitalism and what is called democracy. This new rapacious mostly urban dwelling denizen – this creation of the modern West – is the foot-soldier of the Magian, and is distinguished by a personal arrogance, by a lack of manners, and by that lack of respect for anything other than strength/power and/or their own gratification. And it was to satiate and satisfy and to use and control Homo

Hubris that the Magian and their acolytes (such as the Hubriati) manufactured the vacuous, profane, vulgar mass entertainment industry – and mass “culture” – of the modern West, just as it is Magian Occultism, the Magian- controlled Media, and the “spin”, the propaganda, of politicians who have been assessed and accepted by the Magian cabal, which keeps Homo Hubris almost totally unaware, and uncaring, of the reality of the modern world and of their potential as human beings.

Hubriati

The hubriati are that class of individuals, in the West, who have been and who are subsumed by the Magian ethos and the delusion of abstractions, and who occupy positions of influence and/or of power. Hubriati include politicians, Media magnates and their savants, military commanders, government officials, industrialists, bankers, many academics and teachers, and so on. The oligarchy (elected and unelected) that forms the controllers of Western governments are almost excursively hubriati.

Among the abstractions which delude hubriati are the State, the nation, abstract law, and the pretence that is called “democracy”.

Magian

The term Magian is used to refer to the hybrid ethos of Yahoud and of Western hubriati, and also refers to those individuals who are Magian by either breeding or nature.

The Magian ethos expresses the fundamental materialistic belief, the idea, of Homo Hubris, Yahoud, and the Hubriati, that the individual self (and thus self identity) is the most important, the most fundamental, thing, and that the individual – either alone or collectively (and especially in the form of a nation/State) – can master and control everything (including themselves), if they have the right techniques, the right tools, the right method, the right ideas, the money, the power, the influence, the words. That human beings have nothing to fear, because they are or can be in control.

Yet the Magian ethos is something other than simply something manufactured by some other people, such as Zionists, and which therefore expresses the ethos, the Zeitgeist, of that people. That is, this Magian ethos is theirs, but crucially also now “ours”; an alchemical mixture of ideas, abstractions, and mythos, deriving from both “us” and “them”. Thus, while currently the main beneficiaries of this Magian ethos are the Magians themselves (and especially their new State entity and its satellite entity, Amerika) its origin, its existence, and its continuing vigour and power are now insolubly tied up with the peoples of the West.

Magians (as a breed) are a specific type of human being – they are the natural exploiters of others, possessed of an instinctive type of human cunning and an avaricious personal nature. Over the past millennia they have developed a talent for manipulating other human beings, especially Western mundanes, by means of abstractions – such as usury and “freedom” and marxian/capitalist “social engineering/planning” – and by hoaxes/illusions, such as that of “democracy”. The easily manipulated nature of Western mundanes, and the Magian talent for such things as usury and litigation/spiel, their ability to cunningly manipulate, and their underlying charlatanesque (and almost always cowardly nature), have given them wealth, power and influence.

As such, Magians are – currently – our natural and indeed our necessary mortal enemies, not simply because of their influence and control over mundanes (something we ourselves seek to do to achieve some Aeonic aims) but essentially because Magian influence and control is de-evolutionary in the worst possible sense (breeding as it has and does Homo Hubris), whereas our influence and guidance is and would evolutionary in the best possible sense; a means to liberate individuals, practically – from the tyranny of causal abstractions – and psychically, to extend their consciousness by, for example, awareness of the acausal and through the darkly-numinous goal of leaving this planet, our childhood home.

Mundane

Exoterically, mundanes are defined as those who are not of our acausal kind – that is, as those who do not live by The Law of Kindred-Honour (qv). Esoterically, mundane-ness is defined as being under the influence of, or being in thrall to, or being addicted to, and/or believing in, and/or using as a means of understanding, causal abstractions (qv).

Vindex

Vindex is the name given to the person (male of female) who, by practical deeds, brings-into-being a new way of life and who confronts, and who defeats, through force of arms, those forces which represent the dishonour and the impersonal tyranny so manifest in the modern world, especially in what it is convenient to call “the West”.

The main opponent of Vindex – both on the practical level and in terms of ethos – is the Magian. The main allies of the Magian have been the hubriati of the West – that is, the vulgar Western oligarchy which had originally bred and maintained the White Hordes of Homo Hubris as toiling-workers, salary-slaves and foot-soldiers for their materialistic system of industrialism, capitalism, colonialism and vacuous (un-numinous, abstract) States, and which hubriati, in the early part of the twentieth-century (CE, or Era Vulgaris), came to enthusiastically adopt and evolve the Magian ethos, until the Magian ethos has, since the ending of The First Zionist War, come to represent the modern West, with the White Hordes of Homo Hubris now effectively the toiling-workers, salary-slaves and foot-soldiers for the Magian, and whose taxes, work and sacrifices serve to keep the whole rapacious Magian system alive.

The essence of the new way of life that Vindex heralds and implements (the Vindex ethos) is: (1) the way of tribes and clans in place of the abstraction of the modern nation- State; and (2) the way, the law, of personal honour in place of the abstract laws made by governments.

Appendix 1

Kindred Tribes and The Tyranny of The State

Our wyrd – our true nature, as human beings capable of consciously participating in our own evolution and that of the Cosmos – is most obviously manifest, in a practical way, through our Vindexian warrior tribes and our Law of Kindred Honour. Furthermore, if we know, and if we develope, our wyrd, we become, we are, a particular new type (a new breed) of human being – quite distinct from the mundanes. In essence, we become Dark Warriors, living and if necessary dying by the Law of Kindred Honour.

Our Kindred Tribes are a practical, a darkly-numinous, evolution of that natural tribal instinct that lives within us and which has lived within us, and which tribal instinct has made possible (hitherto mostly unconsciously) our evolution, as human beings. That is, the Kindred Tribes of the O9A are a means whereby we can access and increase our own acausal energy, as individuals, and participate in our own evolution, and that of the Cosmos. To do this – to know and to live our wyrd – is to live in a symbiotic relationship with others of our new kind; to balance our unique individuality with our necessary and natural and numinous (that is, honourable) co-operation with others of our kind. For it is such honourable (numinous) co-operation with others of our own kind (within our own tribal family) which presences and which allows our own individual wyrd to be evolved.

In direct opposition to our wyrd is the modern tyranny of The State, which is un-numinous and de-evolutionary in nature, purpose and intent. For the State takes away our natural right of personal honour, and that natural and evolutionary way of living which is tribal, and replaces honour by impersonal,lifeless, abstract “law”, and replaces tribes by the impersonal, lifeless, abstract, State and nation, which are – despite the illusion and pretence of democracy by some such States – are all run by an oligarchy, for the benefit of that wealthy and privileged oligarchy.

In place of the natural and personal knowing – the acausal-knowing – of our tribal (extended, kindred) family, there is the impersonal causal lifeless “knowing” of our place as some mechanistic “citizen” of the State or nation. In place of the natural loyalty to, and the care of and from, our own tribal family – based on a personal, numinous, knowing and loyalty – there is the division of us into isolated, un-numinous and de-evolutionary single family units, dependant on usury, and where our given purpose is to toil for the State, on behalf of The State, or for ourselves and our single isolated family unit, and to which State we have to pay, for all of our working lives, mandatory taxes, thus making us wage or salary slaves, almost always burdened by debt.

In place of our natural, healthy, evolutionary warrior way of life – based on a tribal way of living and the law of kindred honour – the State denudes us of numinous meaning, of wyrd, and provides us only with de-evolutionary aims and goals. In place of the glory of a Galactic Imperium, and the promise of a warrior-won acausal existence, the tyranny of The State provides us with only causal illusions and abstractions and meaningless “rewards”, so that we remain tame, domesticated, animals, paying our taxes, and subservient to their dishonourable enforcers, the bullies they call the forces of their “law and order.”

Thus, we by our very nature, by our wyrd, are violently, implacably, and in all practical ways, opposed to the State and its de-evolutionary self-serving tyranny.

Appendix II

Code Of Kindred Honour

Those who are not our kindred brothers or sisters are mundanes. Those who are our brothers and sisters live by – and are prepared to die by – our unique code of honour.

Our Kindred-Honour means we are fiercely loyal to only our own O9A kind. Our Kindred-Honour means we are wary of, and do not trust – and often despise – all those who are not like us, especially mundanes.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to be ready, willing, and able to defend ourselves, in any situation, and to be prepared to use lethal force to so defend ourselves.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to be loyal to, and to defend, our own kind: to do our duty, even unto death, to those of our brothers and sisters to whom we have sworn a personal oath of loyalty. Our obligation – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to seek revenge, if necessary unto death, against anyone who acts dishonourably toward us, or who acts dishonourably toward those to whom we have sworn a personal oath of loyalty.

Our obligation – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to never willingly submit to any mundane; to die fighting rather than surrender to them; to die rather (if necessary by our own hand) than allow ourselves to be dishonourably humiliated by them.

Our obligation – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to never trust any oath or any pledge of loyalty given, or any promise made, by any mundane, and to be wary and suspicious of them at all times.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to settle our serious disputes, among ourselves, by either trial by combat, or by a duel involving deadly weapons; and to challenge to a duel anyone – mundane, or one of our own kind – who impugns our kindred honour or who makes mundane accusations against us.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to settle our non-serious disputes, among ourselves, by having a man or woman from among us (a brother or sister who is highly esteemed because of their honourable deeds), arbitrate and decide the matter for us, and to accept without question, and to abide by, their decision, because of the respect we have accorded them as arbitrator.Our duty – as kindred individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to always keep our word to our own kind, once we have given our word on our kindred honour, for to break one’s word among our own kind is a cowardly, a mundane, act.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to act with kindred honour in all our dealings with our own kindred kind. Our obligation – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to marry only those from our own kind, who thus, like us, live by our Code and are prepared to die to save their Kindred-Honour and that of their brothers and sisters.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – means that an oath of kindred loyalty or allegiance, once sworn by a man or woman of kindred honour (“I swear on my Kindred-Honour that I shall…”) can only be ended either: (i) by the man or woman of kindred honour formally asking the person to whom the oath was sworn to release them from that oath, and that person agreeing so to release them; or (ii) by the death of the person to whom the oath was sworn. Anything else is unworthy of us, and the act of a mundane.

Nazi Satanists Infiltrate UK Music Scene

O9A Insight Role
O9A Insight Role

°°°°°°°°°

As mentioned some months ago {1} a journalist was asking questions about the O9A with a view to writing an article. In the now (November 2018) published article, titled Beyond The Iron Gates: How Nazi-Satanists Infiltrated the UK Underground, the anonymous author – writing under a pseudonym presumably for his own protection – tackles the sinister topic of O9A “entryism”, with the article published by a well-known on-line music magazine.

Like so many others before him the anonymous author makes pejorative assumptions – such as that David Myatt is the O9A’s chief architect – without providing any evidence. He also relies on and quotes from some anonymous internet document which makes allegations about Richard Moult. And so on and so on.

But no matter. For such assumptions and such anonymous documents fulfil a role.

For in these times of ours – the beginning of the transition from The Old Order to The New Aeon whose genesis is Chaos – what matters are new archetypes, mythos, new urban legends, and ancient rural legends reborn: a stirring of personal feeling, a sense of Fate, a portal to some-where mysterious which cannot be precisely described by any words we know.

Thus it has to be admitted that such an article with its mention of world-wide O9A infiltration, its speculation about “how many unsolved hate crimes in Europe and the US are O9A style opfers”, and stating that O9A inspired music “creates an intriguing and seemingly authentic sinister atmosphere: a lure that will encourage some listeners to explore further,” all add to the public satanic character of the O9A, particularly as the article was published by a well-known and respected on-line music magazine.

The article thus makes a useful addition to the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus.

Some quotes from the article regarding Myatt and Moult:

                  “If we are generous we could view Moult as simply a vessel – an occult seeker deceived and exploited by the O9A’s chief architect, David Myatt, to further his lifelong aim of destroying Judeo-Christian culture.”

                  “It’s hard to take anything Myatt says at face value, so successfully has he enshrouded himself in self-contradictory disinformation.”

                  “Between them, [Moult] and Myatt have opened Pandora’s Box, and created a global, leaderless collective whose presence is now far more threatening than one could have foreseen in the ONA’s formative years.”
