°°°°°°°°°

Traditional And Modern: 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 {1}{2} a pseudonym used by the neo-nazi extremist, and “theoretician of terror” {3}, David Myatt.

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.

Zionism And The Zeitgeist Of The West

Editorial Note: We reproduce the following article not because we agree with all of the opinions expressed by its author [1] but because, after a long preamble, it has – in our opinion – some intriguing things to say about David Myatt, Vindex, and the Order of Nine Angles.

We have replaced some of the links to pdf files available from that blog to ones available via this blog.

Zionism And The Zeitgeist Of The West

The actual zeitgeist of the governments of the modern West – as opposed to the imagined zeitgeist that many people seem to believe in – was evident in a recent event. Which event was the attack in May 2018 on unarmed Muslim civilians by the army of the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine and which attack resulted in 58 Muslims killed with over 2,000 injured. The Muslims were protesting at the American government moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in compliance to Zionist demands.

Officials of the American government failed to condemn the massacre of civilians, with the Zionists blaming Muslim “terrorists” for the violence, even though not one Zionist soldier was injured or killed. In addition, the governments of Europe merely expressed “some concern” at the events, although had some Muslims, somewhere in the world, killed 58 civilians and injured over 2,000, those governments would assuredly have stridently condemned such an attack, called it “an atrocity”, and demanded that the killers “be brought to justice.”

The zeitgeist is also evident in another recent event. The imposition by the government of America, again at the behest of the Zionist entity, of even more punitive sanctions on Iran with the excuse being to prevent Iran developing nuclear weapons even though the Zionist entity has – in violation of international treaties – developed nuclear weapons and has not been, is not being, and will not be, subject to international sanctions for so developing such weapons.

       The zeitgeist is thus one of hypocrisy, of double standards, and of uncritical support – economic, financial, military, propagandistic and otherwise – for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine, with overt criticism of that entity and of its policies deemed to be, especially in European countries, “anti-Semitism” and regarded by all Western governments as “morally repugnant” and as “hate speech.” The career of any Western politician who dares to criticize, for whatever reason, the Zionist entity will be over, as the recent case of Ken Livingstone, former Mayor of London, illustrates.

The new zeitgeist of the West is founded – as the Zionist entity was – on one modern legend and one old myth. The old myth is that God intended Palestine for those who consider themselves “the chosen people” and who thus regard themselves as the descendants of the Hebrew tribes mentioned in the Old Testament, and who sincerely believe that

                  “The Jews were chosen to act as pathfinders for the world, and Israel has a special place as an instrument to effect the Jew’s social engineering upon the world.” {1}{2}

The modern legend is of “evil Nazis” who persecuted and then deliberately exterminated millions of “the chosen people” leaving those who remained with a duty to emigrate to and settle in Palestine and thus force (or by various means persuade) the Muslims who lived there to leave.

This zeitgeist – and the uncritical support engendered, especially by both past American governments and the current government of America – has assured the present success of the Zionist entity, commercially, financially, economically, and military. A success and a zeitgeist evident, for example, in that the entity is now advertised and accepted as a “European-type” tourist destination for Western peoples and is included in the “Eurovision Song Contest” even though it is not, geographically, in Europe.

Yet successful as the Zionist entity now appears to be, what its government, and those in the Western governments who support it, forget or do not know – what those who resort to “in time” methods and tactics always forget or never seem to know – is the Aeonic, the “above time”, aspect and perspective. {3}

An Aeonic Perspective

Perceived Aeonically, the Zionist entity may well be successful, for a while: be it for some decades, be it for a hundred years or perhaps more. However, their success is dependant on the continuing support of America, on a continuing belief among the peoples of the West in both the legend of the holocaust, and in the myth supported by evangelical/traditionalist Nazarenes (especially in America) that their support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine is authorized by Nazarene Scripture which they believe revealed that their Nazarene God intended Palestine for those who consider themselves “the chosen people” as thus who regard themselves as the descendants of the Hebrews tribes mentioned in the Old Testament.

However,

§ Regarding American support, both the demographic and the belief of the people of America are changing. Demographically, the move is away from a White majority toward those hitherto ethnic minorities – the Hispanic and the Negro – who have an instinctive aversion to the policies and politics espoused by people such as The Vulgarian {4}. In terms of belief, it is estimated that, in America, every year around 3,000 Nazarene churches close due to falling congregations, with a 2017 study by the American based Public Religion Research Institute revealing that in 1996 around 65% of Americans identified themselves as White Christians while a decade or so later only 43% did so.

Thus it is reasonable to conclude that in a hundred or so years time the people of America, and their beliefs, will be different from that of today, with there being no guarantee of American support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine.

§ Regarding belief among the peoples of the West in the legend of the holocaust, although it is likely that over the next three or four decades more Western lands will introduce Zionist-supported tyrannical laws making questioning “the holocaust” a criminal offence punishable by imprisonment, the history of Western peoples over the last three millennia reveals that rebellion against tyrannical laws is inevitable, sooner or later, be that later a century or more. For every tyranny, every Empire, has its day with none, in the entire history of humanity, lasting more than three or four centuries. There is always a revolution or rebellions; there is always the death – from natural causes or otherwise – of a tyrant or potentate; there is always a change of government; always the removal, the overthrow – violent or otherwise – of a ruling cabal. And there are always new ideals, new ideas, new ways of living, which replace – gradually or otherwise – the old.

§ Regarding the belief among Nazarenes that support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine is authorized by Nazarene Scripture, the Nazarene religion itself is currently threatened by the spread of Islam which of course is why the Zionist entity – and supporters of that entity, such as the current American government – have waged and are waging both a propaganda and an actual or a proxy or an economic war against Muslim influence in the Middle East and elsewhere: such as in Afghanistan (actual war and invasion), Iraq (actual war and invasion), Syria (proxy war), Yemen (proxy war), Iran (economic war and agitation for regime change), Sinai (proxy war), Rakhine State (proxy war), Somalia (proxy war).

While Zionist and Western propaganda describes this war against Muslim influence as a “war on terror” it is in reality – as the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan has revealed – a war against Muslims living without Western influence and according to Shariah in their own lands. The hypocrisy of calling it a “war on terror” is evident in the fact that Western wars and invasions and proxy wars, and the Zionist entity, have killed far more Muslim civilians – tens upon tens of thousands – than Muslim “terrorist” groups have killed Western civilians and residents of the Zionist entity.

Zeitgeist Of The West, Heresy, And The O9A

That the original zeitgeist of the West has been replaced by the aforementioned Zionist-loving zeitgeist was explained in Myatt’s 1984 essay Vindex: Destiny Of The West {5}. In that text Myatt described the replacement zeitgeist as Magian and concluded that National Socialism – what it actually was, not what Zionist propaganda and the modern legend of ‘the holocaust’ has made it appear to be – was an expression of the original, Faustian, zeitgeist of the West, and that

                  “in its relation to what we have called the ethos of the West, National-Socialism, from its very beginnings in Munich in 1919, stands as an embodiment of that ethos. National-Socialism was a resurgence of basically Faustian values over and above the cultural dominance of the Magian.”

That National Socialism – correctly perceived and understood, as for example by means of the life and writings of Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle {6} – is now a modern heresy, with promotion of such heresy and denial of modern legend of ‘the holocaust’ made illegal in several European lands, should be obvious.

Enter, into this heretical milieu, the esoteric Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA). Which modern esoteric movement {7} has antinomian Insight Roles {8} some of which involve supporting National Socialism and denying the modern legend of ‘the holocaust’, and which esoteric Order

                  “has always praised the warrior ethos, Hitler, and the Waffen-SS, and propagated the Vindex mythos, and emphasised the idea of a Galactic Imperium; and why the O9A values, and emphasises, both ‘the clan’ and ‘the tribe’ and such pagan ancestral European traditions as the Rounwytha.” {9}

In addition, the O9A has always promoted the idea – founded on scholarship – that

                  “as described in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan – (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.” {10}

That this heretical understanding of Satan and of Satanism has been usurped by the Media-supported egoistic, Magian, ‘satanism’ manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey (the Yahoudi, a.k.a. Anton Szandor LaVey) – and accepted by most self-described “neo-nazis” as defining Satanism – should be sufficient of itself to understand (i) how the Faustian zeitgeist of the West has been replaced by one based on a modern legend and an old myth, and (ii) what the O9A with its Aeonic understanding, its “sinister dialectic”, and its practical dangerous heresy, is all about, and (iii) why that acausal “sinister dialectic”, undermining as it does the status quo, is based on the knowledge, the wisdom, of the inevitable decline and fall of those individuals – and of those governments and entities – who are “in time” and who thus are enamoured of, and by, simplistic causal abstractions.

{2} In this context, “social engineering” refers both (i) to government and State efforts (through for example laws, centralized planning, and propaganda) to influence the attitudes and ideas of people and the structure of society, and (ii) to efforts by the Media and special interest groups to bring about certain changes in society.

{3} The categories “in time” and “above time” refer to Savitri Devi’s book The Lightning and the Sun in which she describes three basic types of leaders. Those “in time” – like Genghis Khan – who concentrate on military might; those “above time” – like the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten – who are otherworldly; and those “against time” – like Adolf Hitler – who are both “in time” and “above time”, both Lightning and Sun. A similar though not identical concept occurs in the Sea of Fertility novels of Yukio Mishima in the characters of Kiyoaki Matsugae, Isao Iinuma, Ying Chan, and Toru Yasunaga.

{7} As described by Professor Monette on page 89 of his book Mysticism in the 21st Century published in 2013 by Sirius Academic Press, 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.”

{8} By means of Insight Roles, the Order of Nine Angles “advocates continuous transgression of established norms, roles, and comfort zones in the development of the initiate […] This extreme application of ideas further amplifies the ambiguity of satanic and Left Hand Path practices of antinomianism, making it almost impossible to penetrate the layers of subversion, play and counter-dichotomy inherent in the sinister dialectics.” Faxneld, Per & Petersen, Jesper Aagaard, The Devil’s Party: Satanism in Modernity. 2013.

How To Misunderstand The O9A

Order of Nine Angles

O9A

°°°°°°°°°

One of the investigative journalists who earlier this year wrote about the neo-nazi group AtomWaffen Division {1} has revealed – through messages posted on “Twitter” – what appears to be a basic lack of understanding of the O9A despite having claimed that he has studied the O9A for quite some time. His earlier “tweets” about a possible connection between AtomWaffen Division (AWD) and the O9A may well have led to journalist Kelly Weill publishing an article in The Daily Beast about links between AWD and the O9A.

The journalist in question is Jake Hanrahan who, in his latest tweets about the O9A, referenced an article on a website and which website states that it represents an O9A nexion.

In those “tweets” Hanrahan appears to assume that what is written on the website in regard to Mr Myatt is some sort of “official statement” by the O9A whereas – as Anton Long and many others have stated time and time again – no one person, no one O9A nexion, no collocations of O9A nexions, can ever speak or write “on behalf of the O9A” since the fundamental O9A principle of the authority of individual judgment means 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. {2}

All any person or group associating themselves with the sub-culture that is the O9A {3} can do is present their personal opinion and/or their personal interpretation of matters O9A and otherwise.

Hanrahan thus seems to repeat the error made by the likes of Massimo Introvigne which is the fallacy of Illicit Transference {4}.

That journalists, academics, and others – in respect of the O9A – continue to commit the fallacy of Illicit Transference by ignoring one of the fundamental principles of the esoteric philosophy of the O9A is proof of just how limited their research into the O9A is, has been, and continues to be.

In regard to how people associating themselves with the O9A regard Mr David Myatt, journalists, academics, and others should read the book A Modern Mysterium {5} and the article Decoding The Life Of Myatt. They will find a diversity of opinion, which diversity is in accord with the O9A principle of the authority of individual judgment.

A Contrast Of Lives

odal3

Editorial Note: The following extract is from the highly controversial Understanding Neo-völkisch Satanism, which article was first published on the TWS Nexion blog.

The extract provides succinct descriptions of the ‘modern satanism’ manufactured by Howard Stanton Levey (better known under his aliases of Anton LaVey and Anton Szandor LaVey) and the ‘traditional Satanism’ of the Order of Nine Angles, and – most interesting of all – also provides an account of the contrast between the life of Levey and the life of the person often alleged to be behind the pseudonym Anton Long, the founder of the O9A and author of most of its texts.

For those interested, the allegation regarding who is behind the pseudonym Anton Long is considered in detail in the 87 page book titled A Modern Mysterium, for which see the article at https://regardingdavidmyatt.wordpress.com/2018/04/21/a-modern-mysterium-2/

°°°°°°°°°

The Satanism Of Levey

The 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 {5}.

This type of Satanism promotes “the total satisfaction of the ego” {6} and obeying the law of the land {7}.

The Satanism Of Anton Long

The Satanism of Anton Long is based on the scholarly premise that – as described in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan – (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 – means to exeatic personal experiences which shape and evolve an individual’s character and understanding. {8}{9}.

A Contrast Of Lives

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, for one would expect their respective types of Satanism to be reflected in their own 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 with 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 Modern Mysterium

David Myatt

David Myatt

Editorial Note: The interesting and informative essay presented below is from the Introduction to the “gratis open access” and 100 page book titled A Modern Mysterium: The Enigma of Myatt And The O9A (pdf). The essay summarizes the salient points 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.

The first part deals with the O9A; the second details the claim – the allegation – that Myatt is Anton Long; and the third part presents evidence which contradicts or which casts doubt on that allegation. The work therefore allows the reader to form their own opinion of the O9A and of whether or not there is any merit to the claim that the pseudonymous Anton Long was Mr Myatt.

°°°°°°°

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 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, {4} 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’ {5} 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.” {6}

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.

{1} Myatt, for example, has convictions and imprisonment for violence, in 1972, after leading a gang of skinheads in a ‘paki-bashing’ incident: documented in court proceedings, prison records, and newspapers. A conviction for leading a gang of thieves in 1974 and being a fence: documented in court proceedings, in police records/interviews, in mainstream newspaper reports.

He was arrested in 1998 for conspiracy to murder: documented in police records (Scotland Yard, the operation was code-named Periphery), documented in custody records at Malvern and Charing Cross police stations. He founded and led the political wing of Combat 18, the NSM, a fact documented by several academics and by mainstream newspaper reports.

He publicly supported bin Laden and the Taliban before and after 9/11: documented by several academics, by proceedings of NATO conferences, by newspaper reports. He travelled to Arab countries and – when it was unpopular and very dangerous to do so, such as after 9/11 – incited Jihad: documented by several academics. His writings justifying suicide attacks were used by ‘terrorist’ groups such as Hamas: documented by several academics, and by proceedings of NATO conferences.

An Upsurge Of Interest

O9A. One Image, Ten Thousand Words

Given the upsurge of interest in both the Order of Nine Angles and Mr Myatt as a result of media items about the American neo-nazi group AtomWaffen Division (AWD) – which is linked to several murders – we reproduce a recent post from the TWS Nexion.

°°°°°°°

Here are some extracts from recent twitter posts by investigative journalist Jake Hanrahan who writes for the New York based – and Pulitzer Prize winning – ProPublica. He is currently undertaking an investigation into the National Socialist group AtomWaffen. Note how he kindly provides a link to a copy of “our” latest effort, A Modern Mysterium: The Enigma of Myatt And The O9A (pdf).

“O9A is strange satanic-fascist umbrella for anyone who follows their brutal ideology. It began in England in the 70s & is believed to have been a brain child of former neo-Nazi turned former jihadist, David Myatt (which he denies) […]

This photo – https://twitter.com/Jake_Hanrahan/status/967091996979531776/photo/1 – is allegedly from Denton/Rape’s Instagram account. Here you can see SIEGE, the Atomwaffen ideological handbook, and to the right an O9A patch (the pic on the right for comparison). I’ve also seen a photo of Kaleb Cole with an O9A patch on his jacket.”


It Can Sometimes Be Informative To Contradict

Order of Nine Angles

O9A

°°°°°°°°°

It Can Sometimes Be Informative To Contradict

With the publication – within a month of each other – of two books dealing with the Order of Nine Angles {1} it was only to be expected that anonymous denigrators of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and of David Myatt would take to their keyboards (physical or virtual) to yet again send forth into cyberspace their personal opinions about the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and/or about David Myatt. Especially given such statements as this from one of those books:

“There have been many rambling tirades regarding David Myatt lately. Many identify David Myatt with Anton Long (the ONA’s founder) despite the fact that he has denied this identification. Instead, some consider David Myatt to be an individual who moves from one ideology to another – a crazy man, praising Jihad and the supremacy of Islam after having praised Aryan supremacy and National Socialism, etcetera. From the perspective of Secuntra Nexion, we consider David Myatt to be an individual who embodies the archetype of the Magickian [Magus], the shape-shifter; an individual who has dedicated his life to a singular purpose, one which leads progressively to new liminal and threshold experiences; an individual who has experienced, in prima persona, myriad facets of life, and who has, as a result of his pathei-mathos, created invaluable works – works such as the Numinous Way, Reichsfolk, and countless texts of inspiration. Whether or not David Myatt is Anton Long remains irrelevant, as each individual will have to give this consideration in proportion to their own research and experience.” Corpus Secuntra, Telos . English edition: ISBN 978-1981879342 {2}

Most – if not all – of the anonymous denigrators of the O9A and of Myatt have three things in common.

First, they have no antinomian, heretical, publicly documented deeds under their real name. Thus, they have never, using their real name, publicly supported terrorism and thus been investigated by the security services of the country where they reside and feel secure. They have never, using their real name, been investigated by law enforcement for inciting someone to commit murder. They have never, using their real name, been investigated by law enforcement for running a gang of thieves. They have never, using their real name, incited political – revolutionary – violence and disorder. They have never, using their real name, harangued a crowd of hundreds of people opposed to their political views and in the process caused a riot. They have never, using their real name, been heretical – antinomian – enough to publicly deny the modern, the State-sanctioned, dogma of the so-called holocaust.

Second, they cannot answer questions about the esotericism of the O9A, having never bothered to study the entire O9A corpus from Naos, to Hostia, to Perusing The Seven Fold Way. Thus, they have little or no knowledge of such topics as to what terrestrial location is associated with Yusra, and whether seven or nine geographically separate physical nexions should be used to “invoke the Dark Gods” and thus presence in practical ways the Chaos of The Abyss on Earth.

Third, they are not erudite enough to have written and published translations of and commentaries on esoteric texts such as the Corpus Hermeticum. They lack the learning to read foundational philosophical, esoteric, alchemical, and ‘magickal’ texts in their original language; texts such as those by Plato, Aristotle, and Iamblichus; texts such as Azoth Sive Aureliae Occultae Philosophorum and De Vita Coelitus Comparanda…..

Yet such deficiencies do not stop them pontificating about and denigrating the O9A and Myatt even though Myatt himself has publicly documented antinomian, heretical, deeds to his name and has written and published translations of and commentaries on esoteric texts, and can read foundational philosophical, esoteric, alchemical, and ‘magickal’ texts in their original language, as well as having developed a modern pagan philosophy (the way of pathei-mathos) and also – if indeed he is or was ‘Anton Long’ of O9A fame – created a comprehensive esoteric philosophy and esoteric praxis which rivals if not surpasses the ‘satanism’ of Howard Stanton Levey (aka Anton LaVey) and the ‘Left Hand Path’ devised by Aquino and manifest in ‘Setianism’.

That the opponents and critics of the O9A and Myatt cannot bring themselves to recognize Myatt’s achievements is only to be expected, for such tardiness is as indicative as it is amusing.

Perhaps it is because

“in the matter of the Order of Nine Angles, it is disliked – even loathed – because of its opposition to the ‘Ayn Rand with trappings’ Magian ‘satanism’ of Howard Stanton Levey, its opposition to the foreign influenced (the non-Western) cult of Aquino’s ‘Setianism’, and of course because of the O9A’s antinomian, ‘heretical’, support of National Socialism, holocaust revisionism, and of Muslim Jihad.

In the matter of Mr Myatt, he is disliked – even hated – by the savants of the Magian status quo (which savants include followers of the ‘satanism’ of Howard Stanton Levey as well as anti-fascists) not only because of his alleged links to, and his alleged founding of, the Order of Nine Angles, but also because his experiential life is one of practical opposition to everything Magian, from his thirty years as a neo-nazi activist and as a “principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution,” to his decade as an active supporter of Muslim Jihad, to his Western, ineluctably pagan, philosophy of pathei-mathos, and his recent translations of Western texts about hermeticism which restore them to the Western, pagan, mystical tradition.” {3}

Secuntra is an Italian O9A nexion established over a decade ago which practices and which upholds both the “dangerous and extreme forms of Traditional Satanism” as promulgated by the O9A, and the modern heresies of National Socialism and Fascism.

{2} Here is the Italian version of the quotation from the Italian edition of Corpus Secuntra, Telos, ISBN 978-1545074497.

“Si è molto discusso della figura di David Myatt da molte parti in questi ultimi anni. Molti considerano David Myatt come essere Anton Long (ovvero il fondatore dell’ONA) anche se questi sino ad oggi ha sempre negato di esserlo, alcuni semplicemente un individuo che passa da un’ideologia ad un’altra, alcuni un pazzo che inneggia al Jihad ed alla supremazia dell’Islam dopo aver inneggiato alla supremazia ariana ed al Nazionalsocialismo, etc. Da parte nostra (Secuntra Nexion), consideriamo David Myatt come un individuo che incarna l’Archetipo del Mago, del Mutaforma. Un individuo che ha conferito alla propria vita uno scopo ed uno scopo che andasse lontano. Un individuo che ha sperimentato in prima persona le varies faccettature della vita ed una persona che ha creato come risultato del proprio pathei-mathos opere di valore come La Via Numinosa e Reichsfolk ed innumerevoli testi pieni di ispirazione. Che poi David Myatt sia o non sia Anton Long questo può essere considerato irrilevante e rimane una considerazione che ogni singola persona può fare per sé e conferire ad essa il giusto peso.”
