An open letter to the keyboard warriors of the LHP:

“Challenger” and “Adversary” does not mean “one-who-criticizes-everything-possible-in-hopes-of-drawing-affimation-or-accolades-from-other-on-line-Satanists.”  You’re boring.  You’re unappealing.  You’re uncouth.  Far be it from me to posit absolutes, but I will say that being adversarial or agnostic in your life does not require bitching about the perceived “satanic value” of various television programs, movies, books, or fellow internet denizens.  It does not require you to dissect every post or video on multiple LHP forums in an attempt to bolster your Satanic internet credibility.  Your opinion was likely not solicited, and your post only illustrates your need to socially display your pseudo-superior understanding of all things LHP in the most transparent and desperate way possible.  These cyber-Satanists will often retort with ham-fisted excuses, my favorite being, “Why did you post this if you didn’t want it challenged?”  What are you doing in your own life away from the computer screen to validate your assertions of superiority?  Have you nothing better to do than surf the internet looking for “fresh prey?”  Why is your Axis Mundi an unrelenting focus on  YouTube or forums?  What a sad existence.  I can make this accusation because, at one time, I was one of these idiots.

So many find it necessary to belligerently give their alternate opinion or perception of a given topic in an attempt to present themselves as credibly Satanic.  Varying degrees of hostility are not a benchmark of Satanism.  Rather, I suggest that it’s the ability to politely carry on a conversation or contribute to a healthy debate that garners respect, if respect from others is what’s needed or desired.  Belligerent criticism and posturing mean nothing.  In any discussion, one must first have an intelligent and informed platform in which to present the issue or topic.  Alas, these basic concepts of common courtesy are all too often assumed unnecessary within the cyber world of Satanism.

Then there are the schemers and trolls… Those who spend most of their free time with eyes glued to their computers and post vague ideas under the guise of philosophy.   They may also obfuscate overlong essays designed to repackage what has already been said by someone else in hopes of impressing the credulous or confusing the informed.  They wait for someone unfortunate person to reply, then proceed to elevate themselves above the questions posed by bullying or denigrating the questioner.  This is a common practice among many cyber-Satanists, some of whom are well known in many on-line communities.  They are tolerated for a time, then banned, and move on to another forum or Facebook group to start again.  These are parasites of the LHP, not Satanists.

My unsolicited advice to anyone still reading is simply this; honesty, courtesy and curiosity are still in style among those who know better.  Your attitude will always define your behavior.  Then again, this entire post is merely my opinion.  How you interpret it is up to you.  However, it’s my responsibility to present it with respect and candor, which I have genuinely tried to do here, and try to do with anything I do, say or write.  Thanks for reading.

“When ghettos become the mainstream of society, islands of individuality cannot help but harbor an elite.” 
― Anton Szandor LaVeyThe Devil’s Notebook

Sometimes a small reminder has to be given. A little push to look at the actual state of being from a society or (sub-)culture instead of a continuous trying to make the most popular ideology happen. Whereas it is easy to revel and support the quite hollistic terms of “freedom”, “carnality” and “individuality” it becomes more difficult to asses their true value within a landscape of like-minded individuals scanting the mutually agreed premises. The premise of individuality slowly being compromised as the individual now walks among the other like-minded and develops feelings of kinship and mutual trust. A something which eventually leads to cronyism. The individuality fully compromised.

With the emerging sub-culture and cronyism it suddenly becomes apparent that not all activities are being approached with the same sentiments. Certain fetishes  which make part of the individual suddenly being frowned or looked down upon. The “freedom” now being dictated by a newly created microcosmic status quo of the sub-culture. It, together with a part of expressing and indulging in carnality, has been compromised. At the end of the day it can only be concluded that the sub-culture (microcosm) became but an emulation of the higher culture it both tried to oppose and was birthed from (macrocosm).

The paths of adversity, frequently labeled as LHP, are by definition lonely for that reason alone. Individualism cannot be found in mutual agreement nor within any group with like-minded individuals who uphold those principles. You are alone, as it should be. The devil never worked in numbers.

“I wanted to create a forum, a loosely-structured cabal for the productive aliens, not misfits who need to depend on a group. After the re-organization, I was free to be more selective. I would much rather attract and lend support to those individuals who use their alienation—just as most leaders are usually different or distinctive in some way. Groups encourage dependence on beliefs and delusions to reinforce their omnipotence. Instead of fostering self-sufficiency and honest skepticism, I saw my group lapsing into blind belief and unhealthy anthropomorphism. That’s not what I intended and I had to make moves to get the Church of Satan back on track.”
