A Non-Jewish Occult Tradition

A Non-Jewish Occult Tradition

With the publication of volumes I and II of O9A texts issued between 2017 and 2019 {1} it was only to be expected that self-described modern “satanists” and O9A critics would ignore those volumes, especially as volume II (containing illustrations) proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the Order of Nine Angles septenary system had ancestral Western antecedents, and which septenary system has been ignored by both self-described modern “satanists” and by academics who had written about or who were researching “Western” Occultism, focused as such “satanists” and academics are or had been on the Jewish Qabalah in relation to Western Occultism.

That an alternative, non-Jewish, Occult system existed never seemed to occur to them, so fixated as they seemed to be on the likes of Howard Stanton Levey (aka Anton LaVey), on the so-called “Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn”, on Aleister Crowley, and on Michel Aquino, all of whom accepted without question the canard that the Jewish Qabalah was the foundation of modern Western Occultism.

That such a septenary system – as described in various O9A texts dating from the 1970s – was evident in the ancient Pymander tractate of the Corpus Hermeticum {2} has also been ignored by self-described modern “satanists”, by O9A critics, and by academics, is – for us at least – both indicative and amusing since such self-described modern “satanists”, such O9A critics, and such academics seem in thrall to Magian abstractions.

Which thralldom not even antinomian, subversive, texts such as Vindex: Destiny Of the West {3} and Tyranny of the Magian {4} can release them from. That possession and distribution of such antinomian, subversive, texts is now illegal in many Western lands should be sufficient of itself to laugh at the pretensions of Levey-inspired “satanists” and at the ignorance of O9A critics.

Esoteric Chant

°°°°°°°°°

Classic O9A Texts

Esoteric Chant

Esoteric Chant – also called Esoteric Septenary Chant (ES Chant) – is an aural tradition of the Order of Nine Angles, originating from the Camlad tradition that flourished in the Welsh Marches, and particularly in rural South Shropshire. Most of this tradition was transcribed by Anton Long in the 1970s CE and circulated among O9A members in handwritten and typewritten MSS, many of which (although not all) were included in the facsimile version of the Naos manuscript, first issued in 1989 CE. {1}

Two esoteric chants which can result in interesting pathei-mathos, for those with the requisite inner Baeldraca. To be performed by cantors ‘in parallel’ a fourth apart (or an octave and a fourth).

ES Chant forms an important part of The Septenary System and thus of the ONA’s Seven Fold Way. Esoteric Chant is also, like The Star Game, an esoteric language appropriate to the New Aeon.

Which aspects are (i) Occult knowledge – esoteric and pagan traditions, Greco-Roman, Arabic, and Persian – absent from other manifestations of modern Western Occultism; (ii) the link which the O9A has through this knowledge to those ancient traditions; and (iii) the scholarly research done by the authors of such O9A texts.

The scope and contents of the texts serve to distinguish the O9A from all other modern Occult groups be such groups described as Occult, Satanist, or of the Western Left Hand Path.

This 144 page compilation thus compliments the O9A texts in the following four compilations: (i) the seventh, 1460 page, edition of Guide To The Order Of Nine Angles issued in 2014, (ii) The Esoteric Hermeticism Of The Order Of Nine Angles, issued in 2016, (iii) The Eludent O9A, issued in 2018, and (iv) Further Notes Concerning The Hermetic Origins Of The O9A, issued in 2014.

A Note Regarding Kitab al-Aflak

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

A Note Regarding Kitab al-Aflak

A study of Order of Nine Angles texts reveals that, from the 1970s on, their ‘nine angles’ refer to the nine combinations – the “numinous symbols of cliology” (qv. the 1990s text ‘Aeonic Magick: A Basic Introduction’) – of the three basic alchemical substances (Mercury, Sulphur, Salt) which are represented in the pieces of the 1970s vintage O9A Star Game. These nine angles/combinations were first outlined in the 1974 text Emanations of Urania, and which nine combinations can be used to symbolize how the the causal and the acausal are manifest to us, as for instance in our psyche (in the nexion of causal/acausal that we are) via archetypes, ‘personality types’, and the esoteric correspondences of the O9A Tree of Wyrd.

Furthermore, according to Anton Long his inspiration for this 1970s theory of cliology – of nine alchemical combinations or emanations – was an ancient Arabic manuscript, of a few folios, he read while travelling and studying in the Middle East and Asia in 1971, and to which MS some scribe had added some scholia and the title Al-Kitab Al-Alfak – which translates as The Book of The Spheres {1} – for in ancient Muslim alchemy and cosmology there are nine cosmic or ‘supernatural’ realms consisting of seven named planetary spheres and two regions of “immortal” existence.

The most distant of these realms is falak al-aflak, the ‘primary of the spheres’. Below this (and thus nearer to us) is al-kawakib al-thabitah, the realm of the heavenly fixed stars. Next is Zuhal, the planetary sphere of Saturn. Then there is Mushtari, the sphere of Jupiter, followed by Marikh (Mars); Shams (the Sun); Zuhrah (Venus); Utarid (Mercury); and finally Qamar, the sphere of the Moon.

The seven planetary spheres are much in evidence in the Arabic Ghayat al-hakim (c.1050 CE) which preserves the ancient Greco-Roman, pagan and hermetic {2}, system of seven named planetary spheres and which spheres are according to the Poemandres tract of the Corpus Hermeticum a means whereby mortals can ascend to the two regions beyond them to thus become immortal.

Which ‘nine realms’ were described by Cicero {3} long before Ghayat al-hakim was written.

According to O9A aural tradition there are three interesting facts about the Arabic MS that Anton Long described. First, the title which has Al-Kitab rather than the more usual Kitab. Second, that the original MS was untitled and consisted of only a few folios intimating that it may once have formed part of a larger work, which work was perhaps contemporaneous with or earlier or later than Ghayat al-hakim. Third, that the title had obviously been added later as it was in a different hand and which later addition may well explain the use of Al-Kitab rather than Kitab.

Whatever the place and date of composition it is relevant that an ancient Arabic alchemical text was one of the sources that Anton Long used in the 1970s when formulating the esoteric philosophy of the Order of Nine Angles.

In 2011 Anton Long was asked a question about Al-Kitab Al-Alfak by Professor Connell Monette, which question and the reply are worthy of being quoted in full.

{begin quote}
In terms of sources of the tradition and the dark gods, you’d hinted at Islamic sources. My guess is that the 7FW draws partly on the Picatrix. Unless you’re using Shams-l-maarif, I can’t think of any other grimoires that could be Kitab-i-aflak

In terms of sources of the tradition and the dark gods, you’d hinted at Islamic sources. My guess is that the 7FW draws partly on the Picatrix. Unless you’re using Shams-l-maarif, I can’t think of any other grimoires that could be Kitab-i-aflak. Am I near the mark?

No, but that is an interesting comparison nonetheless which no one before has made (kudos to you). The alchemical MS I had access to – consisting of only a small number of folios – has never, to my knowledge, been published or even catalogued, but does bear some comparison to parts of the MS you refer to [i.e. Shams-l-maarif ] which I was fortunate enough to study (with the then necessary help of a gay [female] friend I had met at University) in the early 1970’s CE on various travels to certain Muslim lands (one of which lands was the homeland of my friend who accompanied me on those travels).

It is therefore possible [although not in my view probable] that the author of Al-Kitab al-Aflak used that grimoire partly as a source.

As I have explained to several people who have privately enquired about this, there are, as no doubt you are aware, thousands of uncatalogued Arabic MSS in libraries and madrasahs throughout the lands of the Muslims. {4}

Extract From The Introduction

The septenary system, or tradition, of the modern occult group the Order of Nine Angles (ONA/O9A) was first publicly outlined in their 1980s text Naos – A Practical Guide To Modern Magick. The text is, interestingly, completely devoid of the satanism that the O9A has come to be associated with, and, as the Introduction [to Naos] states, the first part is a “guide to becoming an Adept and is essentially ‘Internal magick’ – that is, magick [sorcery] used to bring about personal development (of consciousness and so on) […] Internal magick is the following of the Occult path from Initiation to Adeptship and beyond, and in the Septenary tradition this path is known as the seven-fold Way.”

Furthermore, in the ‘Notes on Esoteric Tradition’ of Naos it is directly stated that “the goal of sentient life is to […] become part of the acausal (i.e. ‘immortal’ when seen from the causal). Initiation, and ‘the Mysteries’ (i.e. the seven-fold Way), are the means to achieve this.”

Of particular interest is the fact that, in Naos, the internal sorcery used to bring about personal development is also called ‘physis magick’:

{quote} “Physis is divided into seven stages and these seven stages may be regarded as representing the varying degrees of insight attained. In terms of traditional magick, the stages represent Initiation, Second Degree Initiation, External Adept, Internal Adept, Master/Mistress (or High Priest/Priestess), Magus and Immortal. Each stage is associated with a sphere of the Septenary Tree of Wyrd.”{/quote}

Physis is a clear use of the ancient Greek term φύσις, which term occurs frequently in the Pymander (also known as the Pœmandres) section of the ancient Greek text of the Corpus Hermeticum, dating from around the second century CE and first published in 1554 CE, and which Pymander discourse also describes, in some detail, a system of seven spheres; a journey, a quest – an anados, ἄνοδος – up through these spheres in order that the last stage, that of an immortal, may be achieved; and how the individual is changed in the process of journeying through the spheres.

How To Spread Fake News

°°°°°°°°°

O9A Insight Role
O9A Insight Role

Exposing Twelve Basic Errors
Or, How To Spread Fake News

In a recent report much quoted in mainstream Media the anti-fascist ‘special interest’ group calling itself “Hope not hate” devoted two sections (pages 80-85) to the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and David Myatt.

The shoddy and propagandistic – the “fake news” – nature of the report is evident in the fact that in those two sections there are over twelve basic, factual, errors ranging from outright fabrications to misquotations.

Another fundamental – damning – flaw is that various O9A and other articles are quoted but without providing references to the date and place of publication and without giving the name of the author on the original text with some articles which are falsely attributed to Myatt having been written by others.

Other fundamental flaws are that the author of the sections on the O9A and Myatt provided no evidence for their many assumptions (such as that Myatt=Long) and did not balance their claims by asking those they libelled for their comments.

That the mainstream Media published articles which extensively quoted from the pages about the O9A and Myatt in the report yet did not have its journalists ask those maligned by the report for comments, and did not have its journalists check the facts beforehand, is indicative of how even the mainstream Media is complicit in spreading “fake news”.

Had a mainstream journalist or journalists bothered to check the facts they would have found the following.

§ Quote: “For Myatt, satanism and fascism are inextricably linked.” p.84

A fabrication by the author, since Myatt in his extensive critique of Occultism first published in 1997 by Renaissance Press in New Zealand wrote:
                  “National-Socialism and Occultism are fundamentally, and irretrievably, incompatible and opposed to each other.” {1}

§ The author gives a quote allegedly written by Myatt: “National Socialism is the only real theory in existence, since it is based solely on the highest ideals of Honour, Loyalty and Duty, championed over and above selfish individual pursuits. It calls for a revolution of the Soul; a Triumph of the Will; a return of racial pride and defiance. In a very important sense, National Socialism IS contemporary Paganism.” p.84

The author not only misquotes the original text but mistakenly attributes it to Myatt.

° The correct quotation is:
                  “National Socialism (with the esoteric exception of Traditional Satanism) is the only real Heresy in existence, since it is based solely on the highest ideals of Honour, Loyalty and Duty, championed over and above selfish individual pursuits. It calls for a revolution of the Soul; a Triumph of the Will; a return of racial pride and defiance – of all that epitomizes the genuine Western ethos. It is a form that cannot be bought by The System, and thus the only option for the latter is to jail or kill National Socialists, and smash through innumerable legislative variations National Socialist influence, naturally dormant in the Western – or Aryan – people. It is the only form which frightens The System, and is thus the only form capable of achieving System Breakdown.”

The quotation is from a Temple 88 newsletter published in a compilation by Caput Mortuum in May 2004 via a now defunct website. {2}

° In addition and importantly, according to the Anti-Defamation League
                  “the berserker brotherhood is a relatively new motorcycle division of temple 88, a white supremacist group that describes itself as a brotherhood of white separatists. The berserker brotherhood colors have a skull in the middle of an iron cross, flanked on the right by the number 88. One anonymous berserker brotherhood member claimed on a social networking Web site that temple 88 originally formed in South Carolina’s Allendale Correctional Institute.” {3}

§ Quote: “The three volumes of The Black Book of Satan are considered so extreme that they are kept is a special section of the British Library and not available to the general public.” p.81

In fact, only two versions of the first volume are kept in the British Library. The first version was published in 1984 and is at General Reference Collection Cup.815/51.

The second version was published in 1992 under the title Codex Saerus and is at General Reference Collection YK.1994.b.12337.

Other O9A items kept in the British Library include the rare edition of Naos: a practical guide to modern magick published by Coxland Press in 1990, available at General Reference Collection YK.1993.a.13307.

§ Quote: “O9A literature regularly advocates ritualised rape, random attacks on innocent victims.” p.81

A fabrication by the author.

A study of the O9A corpus from the 1980s to 2018 – from the pro-Sapphic novel Breaking The Silence Down {4} to the essay The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos {5} – reveals the O9A attitude toward women, with the O9A code of kindred honour embodying respect for women and gender equality {5} and with the O9A having “more female supporters than either the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set [and] more women with children.” {6}

Nowhere in the corpus of O9A texts written by “Anton Long” between the 1970s and 2011 does the O9A advocate rape.

In fact the O9A consider rapists as suitable candidates for culling {7}.

In addition, nowhere in the corpus of O9A texts written by “Anton Long” between the 1970s and 2011 does the O9A advocate random attacks on innocent victims.

§ Quote: “The ceremony ends with the killing of a chosen one; in a symbolic sacrifice, an animal replaces a person.” p.81

The ceremony in question is The Ceremony of Recalling and nowhere is there any mention of sacrificing an animal, which is fabrication on the part of the author. The ceremony is included in the text Grimoire of Baphomet.

In addition, O9A texts dating from the 1980s and 1990s reveal that they “despise animal sacrifice.” {8}

§ Quote: “When asked in 2005 if the O9A were posing as nazis to recruit and spread their message, Myatt – writing under the name Darkos Lago – responded: You seem to have missed the point about ONA and National Socialism.” p. 82

Where is the evidence for the propagandistic assumption that Myatt used that or any other pseudonym? The author provides no evidence whatsoever.

In addition, the author not only gets the year wrong but misattributes the quote. The post was published in 2016 on the “right-wing” Stormfront internet forum by Dark Logos not by Darkos Lago {9}.

§ Quote: “To Myatt, Satanism represented the Black Order, the only force that could unlock the stranglehold [of] the White Order.” p. 84

A fabrication, for Myatt does not mention a “Black Order” and a “White Order” in any of his writings, be such writings from his time as a National Socialist (1968-1998), as a Muslim (1998-2009) or as an advocate of his numinous way/philosophy of pathei-mathos (2010-present).

Neither does “Anton Long” mention a “Black Order” and a “White Order” in any of his writings.

§ Quote: “In an interview as recently as 2013, Myatt explained their strategy. “Insofar as I understand the matter, it seems that the ‘satanic’ overtones of the ONA serves several subversive purposes.” p.83.

The quoted text was not an interview with Myatt, was not published in 2013 but was posted in 2016 on the “right-wing” Stormfront internet forum by Dark Logos {9}.

§ Quote: “In the 1990s the leadership of the O9A was taken over by Richard Moult.”

The author reveals a basic lack of understanding of the O9A. For there is not and never was a “leader” of the O9A, as a study of the O9A corpus from the 1980s to 2018 makes clear. {10}

According to Professor Monette the O9A
                  “is not a structured lodge or temple, but rather a movement, a subculture or perhaps metaculture that its adherents choose to embody or identify with.” {11}

That is, the O9A is a collection of autonomous cells (nexions) and individuals who follow or who are inspired by the Occult philosophy and practices described in the O9A corpus.

§ Quote: “In 2001 I met David Myatt in a Shropshire pub, close to where he shared a caravan with Richard Moult.”

The author fabricates where both Myatt and Moult then lived. At the time Myatt lived in the village of Leigh Sinton near Malvern with his wife and family while Moult lived with his female partner on a farm near Lydbury North in Shropshire.

These facts were known to both the police and MI5 since Myatt was under surveillance following his arrest by Special Branch in 1998 and his interrogation in 1999 by the anti-terrorist squad in relation to Copeland’s nail-bomb attacks in London. At the time of the interview with Lowles, Myatt was still on bail following his 1998 arrest with one of his bail conditions being that he attend Charing Cross police station on a regular basis.

In addition, the places of residence could be confirmed by County Council tax reports, by tax returns from HM Revenue and Customs, and by other official documents, with Myatt at the time working on a farm near Malvern.

Myatt’s version of the interview with Lowles {12} provides a different version of the events.

§ Errors on pseudonyms.

The author gets the following pseudonyms wrong. He has

° Christos Beast – instead of Christos Beest
° Darkos Lago – instead of Dark Logos
° A. A. Morian – instead of A. A. Morain
° Michael Mouthwork – instead of Michael Morthwork

§ Logical Fallacies.

The author of the sections on the O9A and Myatt commits two basic logical fallacies.

° First, he commits the fallacy of Incomplete Evidence, Which is, to quote Myatt, {13} “when material concerning or assumptions about a particular matter are selected and presented to support a particular argument or conclusion, while other material or assumptions which do not support, which contradict, the chosen argument or conclusion are withheld or not discussed. In effect, selective evidence and/or selective argument are used in order to ‘prove’ a particular point.”

The author thus omits to mention or quote from O9A texts which contradict his assumptions or which place into context the quotations he uses. The author also omits to quote from Myatt’s extensive post-2010 writings about his rejection of extremism and about his mystical, ethical, philosophy of pathei-mathos; quotations which would provide Myatt’s side of the story.

In the case of the O9A the author does not, for example, in the matter of “culling” mention or quote from O9A texts which reveal that there is wide diversity of opinion within the O9A as to whether O9A culling is real or merely part of its Labyrinthos Mythologicus {14} and thus just
                  “a test of occult intuition and a test also designed to put many people off, cause controversy and so generate interest in the O9A.” {15}

As Richard Moult recently wrote:
                  “Regarding culling: I have always understood this to be a mischievous aspect of the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus, and during my time associated with its Septenary techniques, I experienced nothing to suggest otherwise.” {16}

The same questions regarding the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus apply in the matter of the O9A suggesting Insight Roles that may involve criminal acts.

° Second, the author of the sections in the report dealing with the O9A and Myatt commits the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter. Which is the use of 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.

Thus the author uses selective quotes from people who have associated themselves with the O9A and uses his selection to describe and to defame the O9A.

Trusting In Fake News

So many errors and flaws in so few pages exposes the sections on the O9A and Myatt in the report as untrustworthy, as “fake news”, as propaganda designed to discredit written by an author with a particular political agenda.

The sections on the O9A and Myatt are also a masterclass in how to write, distribute, and have the mainstream Media publish fake news, to thus get the public to believe and spread such fake news.

Myatt: A Satanic Icon?

The Occult Phantom Menace
Part Twenty Three

Here are some quotes from an Establishment media-supported anti-fascist who for some twenty years has hated David Myatt despite spouting rhetoric about “hope not hate”. {1}

According to this much media-hyped anti-fascist, Myatt “would regularly get involved in fights” and “learnt martial arts as a teenager” and “often acted as a bodyguard for [British Movement] party leader Colin Jordan.” {2}

Myatt “was regularly involved in violence and after one particularly nasty attack on a young Asian he was sent to prison”. {2}

Myatt “formed a small criminal gang to re-distribute wealth stolen by big capitalist firms. Their burglaries led to an investigation by the Yorkshire Regional Crime Squad and he was again convicted. His activities did attract the attention of someone in authority though as he was invited to join Column 88, a secretive nazi group that was in reality a state-funded operation designed to cause chaos and violence in the event of a Communist takeover or Russian invasion. Myatt became increasingly active in C88, attending their training camps and meetings.” {2}

Myatt undertook “travels in Iran and Iraq, in 2000, [and] began praising Osama Bin Ladin and Al Qaeda,” {2} and became “a key al-Qaeda propagandist.” {3}

Now, compare these documented, such sinister and heretical, behaviour by Myatt with the life of Howard Stanton Levey {3} and decide for yourselves who is the most sinister, the most Satanic, the most “evil”.

Was Howard Stanton Levey – aka Anton LaVey – just a charlatan, “all mouth and trousers”? {4} Or was David Myatt – aka Anton Long – a modern icon of modern Satanism, of modern icon of chaos and nihilism, and someone who not only advocated, but who really did live, an antinomian, an extremist, a terrorist, a modern satanic, a heretical, life?

The State of Hate 2019

O9A Insight Role
O9A Insight Role

°°°°°°°°°

With the publication of its The State of Hate 2019 report the anti-fascist organization that describes itself as “Hope Not Hate” (HnH) has jumped on the anti-O9A propaganda bandwagon following the recent (November 2018) propaganda article about the O9A published on the popular Quietus music blog {1} by an author who, mindful of rumours about O9A culling, wanted to remain anonymous for their own safety.

The HnH report, according to an article in The Daily Telegraph newspaper,
                   “found that some of the most extreme groups in Britain today are influenced by the Order of Nine Angles (O9A), unquestionably the world’s most extreme Nazi Satanist group.” {2}

Furthermore, the report mentions and profiles David Myatt in connection with the O9A, and states that the “O9A is arguably becoming more visible and influential than ever.”

The True Nature Of The HnH Report

A fundamental – a damning – flaw of the report vis-a-vis the O9A and Mr Myatt is that (i) many statements about the O9A and about Myatt are made but without providing references to mainstream and academic sources, and (ii) that various O9A and other articles are quoted but without providing references to the date and place of publication and without giving the name of the author on the original text. Another damning flaw is that some articles are attributed to Myatt when they were published under another name.

One example among many is the report stating (on page 83) that “in an interview as recently as 2013, Myatt explained their strategy,” whereas the quoted text was not an interview with Myatt, was not published in 2013 but was posted in 2016 on the “right-wing” Stormfront internet forum by Dark Logos {3}.

That the author of this section of the HnH report – Nick Lowles – assumes and states that Myatt is “Dark Logos” but fails in this case and in other instances to provide any evidence which has probative value for his assumptions is indicative of the true, the unacademic, nature of the report.

Little wonder then that the Oxford based Three Wyrd Sisters O9A Nexion described the profile of the O9A in the HnH report as
                  “tabloid journalism at its hateful, propagandistic, and judgemental best. A tribute to the hack journalism of the gutter press and reminiscent of the blogorrhea and forumorrhea of mundanes. Full of pejorative (hack writer) terms, factual errors, innuendos, rants, logical fallacies, and blandly stating as fact what are only unproven allegations, rumours and propaganda. Unproven allegations such as Myatt=Long; propaganda lies such as the O9A encouraging rape; and logical fallacies such as a dicto secundum quid ad dictum simpliciter.” {4}{5}

In other words, the HnH report regarding the O9A and Myatt is anti-fascist, anti-NS, propaganda written by individuals with a particular political agenda. {6} That many newspapers and other Western Media hype and quote from the report, and ignore its obvious flaws, was only to be expected given how such newspapers and such Media have their own anti-fascist, anti-NS, pro multi-racial, agenda.

A Fantasy In Print

The credibility of the HnH report in respect of the O9A and Myatt is also called into question when Nick Lowles writes in the section titled A duel at dawn about meeting Myatt in 2001. {7}

Lowles states in the report that Myatt at the time “shared a caravan with Richard Moult” whereas Myatt then lived in the village of Leigh Sinton near Malvern with his wife and family while Mr Moult lived with his female partner on a farm near Lydbury North in Shropshire.

Which facts about their residencies at the time could be confirmed by County Council tax reports, by tax returns from HM Revenue and Customs, by other official documents, and by the Special Branch of the British police who had Myatt under surveillance from at least 1997 to 2003. Indeed, Myatt makes mention in his 2012 essay A Matter Of Honour {8} of regularly meeting with a Special Branch officer in 2000 and 2001, and which Special Branch officer knew where Myatt lived during those years.

Lowles also writes that Myatt gave him “a glimpse of the SS dagger in his pocket”. Which is sheer fantasy since as Special Branch and MI5 could confirm Myatt’s weapon of choice – which he almost always carried with him – was a Bersa .22 semi-automatic pistol.

A Presumption Too Far

In the HnH report Lowles writes that “the presumption must be that [Myatt] is still actively involved in the nazi occult organisation he has spent almost 50 years supporting and leading.”

A presumption – a propagandistic presumption – indeed. For no evidence is presented by Lowles who somehow and for some reason forgets to reference Myatt’s extensive post-2012 writings such as his 2013 book Understanding and Rejecting Extremism in which Myatt describes his rejection of all types of extremism.

Which brings us to the tale of two reformed racists. {9} Of David Myatt and Joe Pearce. Pearce was a minor figure in the “extreme eight” in the late 1970s while Myatt was a member of Column 88, of Combat 18, the founder and first leader of the NSM, and “England’s principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution” {10}.

Yet Pearce was fêted by the Catholic Church, by the media, and by Establishment figures, gave public lectures, wrote about his experience, and was given a sinecure in academia. However,
                  “unlike Pearce, Myatt – despite his more interesting and more violent past, his more diverse experiences over some forty years, his greater notoriety, his extensive writings as a neo-nazi ideologue, his far greater involvement with terrorism – was and is shunned by Establishment figures, is ignored by academics, and when mentioned by journalists or in mainstream books it is often in a derogatory and/or prejudiced manner and is invariably accompanied by the propagandistic and unproven allegation of him being involved with the O9A.
                  Why the disparity, given that both by their own admission are reformed racists who regret their extremist pasts? Why the disparity in their treatment by the Establishment.”

The surmise is that:
                  “the disparity is due to the fact that Pearce is now part of the Establishment – a publicly repentant sinner who has accepted the Christian God and who continues to write, and continues to publicly speak about, what the Establishment approves of – while Myatt is a recluse whose mystical philosophy (the way of pathei-mathos) is essentially pagan. In addition, there is (i) the fact that Myatt has made – both as a neo-nazi and as a radical Muslim – powerful and influential enemies whose mottos are “Never Again” and “Never Forget, Never Forgive”, and (ii) that Myatt’s neo-nazi writings (despite his disavowal of them) still resonant with some people within the neo-nazi community, and (iii) that so many people within the modern Satanist and Occult movements continue to believe (without any evidence) that Myatt is Anton Long and the founder of and the driving force behind the subversive, anti-Establishment, Order of Nine Angles.
                  Myatt thus seems to have become, to some individuals involved with some sub-cultures (occult and otherwise) not only some sort of iconoclastic anti-Establishment figure but also disliked and reviled by many more individuals around the world who have apparently developed a prejudice against him. Thus Pearce is given the benefit of the doubt, and believed, while Myatt is not.”

The important lesson is that many people are biased about Myatt, swayed perhaps by anti-fascist propaganda, with individuals like Pearce given the benefit of the doubt while Myatt is not given the benefit of the doubt.

Would a scholarly biography of Myatt – replete with references and evidence which has probative value – change such Media presented bias? Perhaps. Would a scholarly book – replete with references and evidence which has probative value – about the O9A contradict now rampant anti-O9a propaganda? Perhaps.

But we won’t hold our breath. For no doubt the anti-fascist propaganda about Myatt and the O9A will continue for decades, with no scholar daring to contradict such now well-established pro-Magian propaganda.

{5} The logical fallacy of a dicto secundum quid ad dictum simpliciter is the use of 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.

This fallacy often amounts – as in the case of anti-O9A propaganda and in the case of the HnH report – to quoting a few items written by a few people associating with or claiming to be associating with the O9A and then presenting these few items as representative of the O9A, thus neglecting the vast corpus of O9A texts written between 1974 and 2019 and especially neglecting O9A texts which contradict the claims and beliefs mentioned in those few quoted items.

In his 2018 essay In Defence Of The Catholic Church Myatt pedantically uses the complete Latin phrase rather than the shortened popular version secundum quid et simpliciter. This pedantry by Myatt seems to have inspired some connected with the O9A to also use the complete Latin phrase.

{6} The sloppy and propagandistic nature of the items about the O9A and Myatt in the “State Of Hate 2019” report is also evident in the fact that their author does not even bother to get the names or pseudonyms of individuals right. Thus he has
° Christos Beast – instead of Christos Beest
° Darkos Lago – instead of Dark Logos
° A. A. Morian – instead of A.A. Morain
° Michael Mouthwork – instead of Michael Morthwork

A Statement By Richard Moult

Order Of Nine Angles
O9A

°°°°°°°°°

Following the recent publication of two articles which make significant mention of me, I have decided – rather against my better judgement – to offer here some response. I do this in the hope that it may benefit those whom I love and respect and who have supported me both publically and privately during the publication of these articles.

I freely accept that if one has been involved in heretical esoteric pursuits, one should not moan too loudly when the Establishment strikes back. However, the maxim “never let the truth get in the way of a good story” can be very aptly applied to the journalists responsible, and this deserves to be addressed.

It is astonishing to think that in 2019 a “reputable” journalist could write and publish an article based entirely on gossip and on unsubstantiated assumptions which reveal just how little attention has been paid in the name of research; yet, it can only be that the capacity to think for oneself is diminishing in this quick-fix age of ours, since this type of lazy journalism appears to be thriving and is perfectly capable of causing maximum damage.

How obvious it seems that the material of these Hacks is powered by the need for a certain “Order” to fulfil a sensational image, and so in turn fulfil the fantasy roles of the “journalists” as moral crusaders. It could be said that such an “Order” is partly created and fuelled by such Hacks. In my opinion, the most vociferous of these individuals are usually the ones who are deflecting from something shameful in their own lives.

I am dismayed that my work – my life – is associated with the alleged rise of the Far Right. In terms of my “politics”, see the above Statement. Here, I wish to simply address two unsubstantiated accusations featured in the most recent article.

1: That I am now the Leader of the O9A. My personal odyssey through the esoteric techniques of the Septenary System lasted from 1989 until around 2001. There was no return in 2008. During that time I understood the O9A to be exactly as it has defined itself many times over the past few years: not in fact an organisation or Order at all, but rather a culture which cannot have a leader. As I understood it then, each individual was free to take the esoteric system and re-present it in their own image or according to their own prejudices (as the Hacks themselves have done) and take autonomous responsibility.

I should also add that, via personal experience, I always understood the O9A to be entirely anarchistic in nature, with no allegiance to political abstractions either Left or Right.

2: That I am the author of a book entitled ‘The Dreccian Way’. This was a title completely unknown to me, and it was utterly false to attribute the associated quotes to me. Again, please refer to the above Statement in regards to my views on inciting acts of terror and death. Regarding “culling”: I have always understood this to be a mischievous aspect of the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus, and during my time associated with its Septenary techniques, I experienced nothing to suggest otherwise.

The inconsequential writings I produced during that time are: Caelethi (Black Book II) which is a solo pathworking via a particular ordering of the seven planetary spheres, a few notes on the Sinister Tarot, and a number of MSS dealing with the Arthurian Tradition.

I make no apologies for my 30-year friendship with David Myatt, whose Numinous Way/Pathei-Mathos writings, dating from nearly a decade ago to the present, were completely ignored by the Hacks.

Let me introduce some reality into this fantasy world of the Internet, and give a glimpse of my day-to-day life. We – my family and I – live a rural existence, “off-grid”, and are ethical Vegans pursuing 100% self-sufficiency. There is a great deal of exhausting work involved, and when not working the land, we are renovating the semi-derelict house in which we live. Our children are primarily taught kindness: empathy, tolerance, and compassion towards all living things. Beyond that, there is very little interest in, or time for, anything else; my family is everything to me, hence why the recent album (‘Machair’) will be my last, and why this blog will henceforth mainly function as an archive for my work hitherto.

For those who appreciate my work but are made uncertain by the recent articles, I ask you to trust your instincts; to those who choose to believe the fabrications of the articles, then you are perfectly free not to look at my paintings or listen to my music.
