O9A Occultism

Order of Nine Angles


O9A Occultism

A Bosnian O9A nexion (ABG Lodge) – in an interesting comment on David Myatt’s 1990s neo-nazi Reichsfolk {1} text Occultism and National-Socialism (pdf) – recently wrote:

Though explicitly anti-occult, although not written for and on behalf of ONA [Order of Nine Angles], this text, perhaps most of all, hints at some truths related to ONA and “ONA occultism”. All you need to do is to replace the term “national socialism” with “o9a” or “sinisterly-numinous tradition”, and the term “Nazarene / Judah / Occult” with “Magian” and you have one image that reveals much.

In a sense, ONA / o9a is the evolution of the essence behind National Socialism, the evolution of this pagan spirit and lifestyle of our ancestors, that was and is incomparably far from anything that now passes as occult. Within the system, society, communities where there is no need for suppression and concealment of certain aspects of our nature, the need for the occult as such becomes superfluous. If some aspects of our nature simply are lived and understood as such as they are – as part of an organic whole, there is no need for them to be hidden behind abstraction and symbols, or different kinds of bogey-men. Precisely because of this real-life, physical experience, a way of life and a certain attitude towards life, are found by ONA to be true initiation through to wisdom – in contrast to abstraction, symbols and funny ceremonials, aimed at providing (at least through simulation and psycho-drama) compensation for something that is missing in the lives of individuals and civilization, or is repressed by society and (again) abstract moral and legal constraints. Thus, the Occult, such as it is, represents only a symptom of what is called “the Magian distortion” by ONA. This term refers to everything and all that tries mould human into some, for them, unnatural and restrictive framework. In the last few years, ONA has revealed and emphasized what some people always knew – that ONA is not simply Satanism, but that Satanism in ONA has a particular and specific function. Equally, any form of occultism that came from ONA, any philosophical or political form that came from ONA just had a specific function and had nothing to do with the very essence of what ONA is. In short, the form of ONA Satanism aims at undermining the modern Satanism, each occult and political form emerged within ONA, or under its influence aims to undermine Occult and Politics (distorted civilization) as such.

What is the true “acausal magick” of the Order of Nine Angles is exclusively linked to the life and the way of life of the individual and particular communities (family, clan, nexions, tribes) and it is incomparably far from the conventional occultism and all that same implies – Something especially unfathomable just for those who fell for the “sin” of occultism. These are mainly those occult fetishists, or occultheads, as friends and I call them internally, who had persistently been digging around some ruins of the past, amused by dead things, not  understanding, as CB once said, that we who live today are secrets of that past, and the mystery of the future. All forms serve only one, time-specific purpose, then they become useless. Therefore,  ONA don’t seek to, like neo-Nazis, just chant “Hail Hitler!” and to live on WW2 sentiments, and is unlike neo-pagans who are trying to revive long-dead gods and monuments of the past, but seeks to evolve the substance of our pagan heritage and National Socialism in order to respond to the challenges and needs of the present moment; seeks to emulate the very essence of what is Satan (sinister) and Lucifer (numinous)  without all the childish notions of the same that appeared under the influence Magian distortion, inherited by the occult – and within a single sinisterly-numinous organic whole, which includes the individual, the species, nature and Cosmos.

Satanism Plebianized And The Intellectual O9A

Richard Moult - Banais



{quote} The O9A, esoterically understood, is not only a continuation of classical paganism and Hellenic mysticism/hermeticism, but also – via its logos and the mythos of Vindex – seeks a new Imperium.

Thus, it has, exoterically, much in common with NRx, and thus – of course – with the raison d’etre of fascism and National Socialism, as well as being, esoterically, an arcane cultural game that is part of – and a positive contribution to – what has been termed Western culture, rooted as that culture is in Greece and Rome. {/quote}

Meeting With An Interesting Man

Meeting With An Interesting Man
David Myatt and the Importance of Vindex

I first met David Myatt one January day in early 1998 when around fifty members of Combat 18, supportive of Myatt’s National-Socialist Movement, gathered in north London to protest against a march by IRA supporters.

I’d been familiar with his political writings for a while – but there he was, on the streets of London, surrounded by Police officers and standing in front of that group of mostly young tough-looking men dressed in the causal style then favoured by Combat 18 supporters. He seemed out of place, what with his bushy ginger beard, his flat cap, his Barbour jacket, tweed trousers, country boots and carrying an umbrella. He looked a bit like a farmer, visiting London for the day, who’d taken a couple of wrong turnings, and ended up far from the countryside he’d expected to find.

Later, in some nearby pub, we got to talking – and our conversation soon turned to topics other than politics. It was interesting, listening to him talk, in those days before he moved into Muslim circles, closed to the likes of us. Interesting because he opened for me many a new world – talking as he did about the ancient myths and legends of Shropshire, where I was then living; telling stories and tales of rural English life, and, last but certainly not least, enthusing about Vindex and the Galactic Imperium.

Softly spoken, with a well-educated accent, and dressed in his country clothes, Myatt conjured up another way of life, another world – far beyond that busy inner-city Pub, far beyond the streets of London, and far beyond the modern world itself. A throw-back, perhaps, to olden, more rural, times – or, as I then thought, a harbinger of things yet to be. An embodiment of the type of person, the type of life, that his Reichsfolk organization wanted to nurture, an organization he had founded the year before he’d founded the NSM. Intelligent, well-mannered, well-educated, cultured, people – a new sort of aristocracy, a new rural gentry – but who were not afraid to “get their hands dirty”, who were used to hard work, and who were tough enough, in body and spirit, to defend themselves and their loved ones and who belonged in the countryside.

What was also refreshing, for me, was that he was his own man – he didn’t seem to care about what others said or wrote about him; didn’t seem to care about what they thought about the way he dressed. He didn’t want to or have to please people, and certainly didn’t want to “fit in” or ape the way others behaved, talked, or dressed. He was just being himself. He certainly had an easy-going charm, and was nothing like the rabid fanatic his political enemies portrayed him to be.

It’s fair to say that he then inspired me, on the personal level, as his writings had done on the political level, and – over the next couple of years – I was to read much of his other, non-political, material, from his poetry, to his Greek translations, to his writings about what he then, in 1998, called Folk Culture. But it was to be his myth – or as he described it, the mythos – of Vindex and the future Galactic Imperium that inspired me the most, and still does.

This mythos is, in my view, one of his best achievements – a melding of occult, mythic, and pagan, elements with an inspiring vision of the future. It is the vision of us changing ourselves – via acts of will, and consciously – and being the ancestors for a new breed, a new type, of human beings who, motivated by the wider perspective of life and the cosmos, have an insatiable urge to explore beyond Earth. This raises us our from the mire of earth-bound materialism, and frees us from that debilitating, egalitarian, culture-destroying, enervating, tyrannical magian ethos that would have us as slaves to what has been called the un-numinous abstractions of religion, the state, and modern nations. This vision gives us hope – for it makes us aware of who and what we might be; who we have the capacity, the ability, to be, Promethean cosmic pioneers of many and diverse cultures. Why settle for less? Why be tax-paying slaves of the new tyranny? Why let our ancestral cultures, our natural diversity, be subsumed by Homo Hubris, that slave of the magian?

Instead, we should liberate ourselves, and be the founders of new, of diverse, and of extra-terrestrial, cultures; and cultures which live, which are – to use one of Myatt’s favourite words – numinous, and many of which are founded on the traditions, the ways, of our own ancestors, thus keeping alive something vital, something immensely important and something which manifests the reality, the very diversity, of us, of Nature, of the very cosmos itself. Something pagan.

It was interesting to me that Myatt, during our conversation, quoted Langland’s Piers Ploughman in jocular reference to how ‘wicked’ – how dangerous – contemporary National Socialists were, at least to the Old Order. For the English word wicked is derived from the old, medieval, English word wycke (variously spelt waeke; wicke) which itself derived from wicca, the craft of the witch and the warlock, who were not the sorcerers or the bad folk of Nazarene propaganda but rather the custodians of the ancient, pagan, indigenous, oral traditions of the British Isles. For Myatt seemed then to embody an older way – an ancient, pagan, tradition – as his writings about National Socialism captured that older pagan world of Blood and Soil. The way of heroes, chivalry, rural communities, ancestral traditions, respect for Nature, a connection to the land, and a dislike of cowardice. The type of traditional, more pagan, living that Vindex would seek to establish again.
