A Question Of Interpretation

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

We provide here two quotations from one of David Myatt’s post-2011 works {1} which echo what he wrote in his autobiography Myngath, {2} in parts two and three of his book Understanding And Rejecting Extremism, {3} and in other works such as Some Essays And Effusions, (4) and Extremism And Reformation. {5}

We ask readers of such quotations and of such works by Myatt the pertinent question of how they respond to them. Do they believe – along with those such as anti-fascists – that such writings by Myatt are deceptive, a ploy, the work of some “evil genius”, and thus that – as one anti-fascist propagandist wrote – “the presumption must be that [Myatt] is still actively involved” in neo-nazism?

Or do they believe that such writings are those of a man changed for the better by personal experience and who thus has rejected all types of extremism?

Two Quotations
Questions For DWM, 2017

It was a personal trauma that forced me to confront myself for who and what I was. In the hours following the tragic death of a loved one in 2006 I was so starkly reminded of the tragic death of another loved one some thirteen years before and how I felt in the hours, the days, after her death in 1993. I on that day in May in 2006 knew – starkly, gravely, bitterly, beyond words – that I had learned nothing meaningful in the intervening thirteen years.

It was as if in those intervening years – when I pontificated, when I sallied hatefully violently forth on behalf of one abstraction after another and incited hatred, violence, and terrorism, and caused others to suffer and die – I had sullied, demeaned, the life, the suffering, the love, the death, of a woman (Sue) who had never harmed anyone in her whole life and who had loved me in a simple, genuine, unaffected, loyal way. I just intuitively understood that they – those two woman who died too young – were far better human beings than I was or could ever hope to be […]

My peregrinations were unplanned, the mostly wilful but sometimes unwilful journeyings and explorations of an arrant, selfish and arrogant, individual who certainly does not believe or assume that he, after decades, has achieved some sort of a ‘synthesis’.

Instead, my supposition is of still being flawed, of still learning; of still striving – and so often failing – each day to live as I feel I should, as an honourable, compassionate, tolerant, person wordlessly aware of and appreciative of the numinous.

The Anti-Fascist Campaign Against Myatt

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

The anti-fascist campaign against David Myatt, the demonizing of Myatt, began in 1984 when Gerry Gable – of Jewish descent, a police informer, founder of the anti-fascist Searchlight organization and editor of the magazine of the same name – told the police that he had information that Mr Myatt was responsible for the murder of Hilda Murrell, an elderly and active campaigner for Nuclear Disarmament. {1}

As a result of receiving this information Detectives from Shrewsbury police interviewed Myatt twice. First at his home in Church Stretton, and then at his place of work, a large country house in South Shropshire where he was employed as a gardener. As a result of those interviews Myatt was eliminated from their inquiries.

Gable also informed Jenny Rathbone – a research assistant for ITV’s World in Action programme who were researching the murder of Hilda Murrell – about his suspicions regarding Myatt, as a result of which Jenny Rathbone interviewed Myatt and his then wife at their home in Church Stretton. Myatt – who at the time did not know the source of the allegations – denied any involvement, and, in the subsequent World in Action television programme about Hilda Murrell, Myatt was not mentioned.

Myatt was later to learn the source of the allegations and that they stemmed from the publication of his text Vindex, Destiny of the West in the January 1984 edition of George Dietz’s Liberty Bell magazine. {2} For Gable and his cohorts were outraged by Myatt’s defence of National Socialism and the Third Reich.

Despite this failure by Gable to have Myatt arrested and his failure to have Myatt smeared by the mainstream media, Gable continued to inform the police and the media about Myatt and his activities, culminating in 1998 when, having enlisted the help of Michael Whine – also of Jewish descent and then chairman of the influential Board of Deputies of British Jews – Detectives from SO12, Scotland Yard, {3} acting on the information received from Gable and Whine, conducted a dawn raid on Myatt’s home, then in a village near Malvern where he lived with his third wife and two children and worked on a nearby farm. The raid was named Operation Periphery.

The Detectives searched Myatt’s house for around seven hours, seized his computers and files, arrested him on suspicion of incitement to murder and incitement to racial hatred, {4} and interviewed him at Malvern police station. Myatt was later released on bail, pending further inquires, with one of his bail conditions being that he attended Charing Cross police station in London on a regular basis. {5}

However, the fact that Myatt, in 1998, was on bail charged with various and serious criminal offences did not deter Gable and his cohorts from publishing a special edition of Searchlight magazine in April 1998 under the headline The Most Evil Nazi in Britain. {6} It seems they were most annoyed at Myatt founding and leading the National-Socialist Movement which consisted of the hundred or so members of Combat 18 still loyal to Charlie Sargent, the founder of Combat 18.

In their hatred of Myatt, the anti-fascist Searchlight crowd – which at the time included Myatt-baiter Nick Lowles – made, in that edition of their Searchlight magazine, scurrilous allegations about Myatt and about his alleged involvement with the Order of Nine Angles without providing anything probative – any evidence – for their allegations.

Their campaign against Myatt continued, resulting in articles about Myatt in their July 2000 special edition of Searchlight devoted to the London “nail-bomber” David Copeland, and in which edition of their magazine Myatt was described as a “theoretician of terror” with Searchlight repeating their unproven and malicious allegations about Myatt being involved with Satanism.

The Searchlight campaign against Myatt resulted in him being interviewed by a reporter and film-crew from the BBC television programme Panorama who were making a “documentary” about David Copeland. An extract from that interview was included in the broadcast programme. {7} Unsurprisingly, the Myatt-baiter, and fanatical anti-fascist, Nick Lowles was an assistant producer of that television programme.

Following the semi-retirement of Gerry Gable from Searchlight due to ill-health, and the departure from Searchlight of Nick Lowles (due to him, so we are informed, trying to bribe Sonia Gable, wife of Gerry Gable) and then the rise of Lowles as an anti-fascist media pundit – aided by the influential billionaire George Soros, also of Jewish descent – the campaign against Myatt was dormant for many years as Myatt-baiter Nick Lowles concentrated on consolidating his position as Britain’s leading “authority” on modern British fascism, creating his so-called “Hope Not Hate” organization in the process.

Then in 2019, with his media-position and that of his so-called “Hope Not Hate” organization secured as “authorities” on modern British fascism, he returned to his Myatt-baiting, writing a 2019 article about the Order of Nine Angles and an article about Myatt which were strewn with errors and replete with unproven allegations. {8} He even claimed to have interviewed Myatt in 2001 when in fact the interview took place in 1998, as attested by both the July 2000 edition of Searchlight magazine and by Myatt himself. {9} It was most pleasing to the Myatt-baiting Lowles that the mainstream media in Britain – such as The Daily Telegraph, The Sun, The Guardian – reproduced his allegations about Myatt and the Order of Nine Angles verbatim and did not bother to have their journalists investigate the facts.

However, not content with this, the Myatt-baiting Lowles – financed as he still was by the influential billionaire George Soros, and employing as he did and does The Big Lie technique – repeated his malicious and unproven allegations about Myatt again not only in a “Hope Not Hate” report published in 2020 but also in various internet “podcasts” {10}

Despite being challenged to provide actual evidence for his allegations {11} he has failed to do so. Meanwhile, others – such as journalists Jake Hanrahan and the BBC’s Daniel De Simone {12} – have accepted without question what the Myatt-baiting Lowles has written and said. Which of itself goes to prove just how effective The Big Lie technique is in our modern times.

All of which raises the question of just why Mr Myatt – from 1984 to the present – has been the subject of anti-fascist, and of Jewish, hatred and propaganda.

Is what Myatt wrote during his neo-nazi years (1968-1998) so dangerous to the current Magian status quo? {13}{2} Is his recent – post-2011 – pagan philosophy of pathei-mathos also so dangerous to the current Magian status quo? {14}

If so, that would explain such a hateful and long-lasting campaign to discredit him.

Magian Foundations Of Anti-O9A Propaganda

Foundations Of Anti-O9A Propaganda
(pdf)

Extract:

The recent and, as of 15 March 2020 ongoing, campaign by an antifascist political interest group to have the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) banned by the British government not only required two things in particular but also implies something important about our epoch – about the societies of the modern West – and about what has become, since World War Two, its shared ethos and its orthodoxy.

One requirement was that the campaign be based on the Big Lie (große Lüge) technique of propaganda where a lie – or several lies – is or are repeated so often by so many and by various means that a large proportion of people accept the lie or lies as fact even though nothing probative – no evidence based on primary sources – is ever presented. The second requirement is that the enemy or enemies – in this case the O9A and Mr Myatt – are demonized by many and various means, which in this epoch means through social media platforms, through the mainstream media such as newspapers and pseudo-documentaries, via the medium of websites and forums, and by the leaders and activists of an antifascist political interest group meeting with mainstream politicians, and the police, and spinning their yarns and their lies in the hope of influencing or persuading those politicians and the police.

What is implied by this antifascist campaign is that both the campaign itself and the antifascist political interest group represent the orthodoxy, the ethos, of our epoch with the O9A and Mr Myatt perceived as enemies who seek to undermine and replace that orthodoxy with a new ethos. In other words, they are perceived as heretics although the anti-O9A campaign, the antifascist political interest group, and their supporters, are careful not to use the word heretic in respect of the O9A and Mr Myatt since if they do use that word some people may discover the truth about the current orthodoxy. Instead, they use expressions such as “promoting hate speech” and “promoting extremism” and “encouraging terrorism”.

A Progressive Awareness

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

An Icon Of Nihilism?

The French author Bertrand Vergely – who teaches at the Institute of Political Studies in Paris – wrote in his 2019 book Notre vie a un sens: Une sagesse contre le pessimisme ambiant, that his “philosophy of Pathei-Mathos [is] probably very close to that of David Myatt – an inflammatory reference according to [modern] dogma…..” {1}

That Vergely has borrowed Myatt’s phrase “philosophy of pathei-mathos” (a term used by Myatt from 2011) and mentioned that even referencing Myatt is an inflammatory thing to do, is interesting. As is the attempt by Vergely to distance “his” philosophy from Myatt’s by stating he does not endorse either some of the things that Myatt once endorsed (and has since rejected) or which Myatt’s enemies have accused him of endorsing.

Interesting because it reveals a progressive awareness of Myatt’s philosophy, and because of how propaganda about and rumours concerning Myatt – for example, by anti-fascist groups – have not only increased in recent years but also been believed by thousands upon thousands of people even through there is no evidence – nothing probative – to support such propaganda and rumours, leading rational folk to conclude that such believers and such anti-fascist propagandists are biased and prejudiced.

Biased and prejudiced because they have not bothered to read Myatt’s extensive post-2011 writings about his rejection of extremism {2} and his extensive post-2011 writings about his philosophy of pathei-mathos with its foundations of empathy, compassion, and humility, {3} or if they have bothered to read a few them they have dismissed them as the deceptive work of a Trickster, of an “evil mastermind”, with the result that David Myatt now seems to be perceived as an iconoclast and is progressing to become a modern icon for heretical rebellion against the capitalist West, for antinomianism, and for nihilism.

Strange Life Of Myatt

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

Editorial Note: In view of the recent repetition of unsubstantiated rumours about David Myatt {1} we republish here an article from 2016 which provides a reasoned view of Myatt derived from a study of his letters and writings. {2}

°°°°°°°

The Strange Life Of David Myatt

One of the interesting things about the strange life of David Myatt is that there are several different interpretations of both his motives and his personality. The three most common interpretations – advanced and commented on by academics, by journalists, and others – are:

(i) That he is Anton Long, founder of the Occult group the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A), and an “extremely violent, intelligent, dark, and complex individual” {1} who is “paramount to the whole creation and existence of the ONA,” {2} whose “Nazism and Islamism are merely instruments for the ONA’s underlying sinister esoteric plots.” {3}

(ii) That his somewhat itinerant adult life has been a Faustian, experiential, quest, with him drifting toward an unknown destination.

(iii) That he has been on a life-long ‘sinister-numinous’ quest, both Occult and practical (esoteric and exoteric), and has now discovered the wisdom and the self-understanding that is the goal of such a quest.

According to the first interpretation, his poetry {4}, his published private letters {5} and post-2011 writings about his philosophy of pathei-mathos are either a clever ploy by a real-life Trickster to disguise his real ‘sinister’ nature or were written by someone else, or some others, as a deception.

According to the second interpretation – advanced by Myatt himself and some of his supporters – such writings are genuine and document the interior struggles, the vacillation, and the learning from experience, that occurred from around 2002 until 2010; struggles, vacillation, and a learning that he makes mention of in both his autobiography Myngath and in his essay The Development Of The Numinous Way.

According to the third interpretation – advanced by some supporters of the O9A – such writings document the feelings and the understanding germane to someone who, questing for decades along the O9A Seven Fold Way, has entered and passed beyond the Abyss and thus discovered Lapis Philosophicus.

In respect of which interpretation of Myatt’s life is the most plausible, it is my contention that Myatt’s poetry, his published private letters, and his post-2011 writings about his philosophy of pathei-mathos, can provide the answer: that they hold all the clues necessary to arrive at a satisfactory and rational solution.

The Necessary Research

What is most surprising about those who advance and write about and believe one of the above explanations is that it appears that none of them have actually studied, in detail, and critically commented upon, Myatt’s poetry, his published (pre-2009) private letters and his post-2011 writings about his philosophy of pathei-mathos.

For among the questions that should be asked, in relation to such works, are the following. (i) What do they express in terms of personal feelings and weltanschauung? (ii) What do they reveal about the writer and his style of life? (iii) Are they internally – and over the time span under consideration (2002-2011) – consistent? (iv) How do they relate to Myatt’s life at the time they were written? (v) Are they all consistent with Myatt’s own explanation of his life as described in his autobiography Myngath {6} and in his post-2011 essays such as The Development Of The Numinous Way? (vi) Could someone who faked the letters – for whatever reason – maintain a consistency of feelings for so many years? {7}

Is what Myatt explained in Myngath the truth of his life or the sly words of a trickster? He wrote:

“For the reality of my past nine or so years is not that of some sudden life-changing revelation, but rather of a profound inner struggle whose genesis lay years before – in my experiences with and passion for women; in my time in a monastery; in my ever-growing love for Nature and my involvement with English rural life; in Sue’s illness and her tragic death.

This intense struggle was akin to an addiction, and I an addict addicted to abstractions. A struggle between my empathy, my understanding, my pathei-mathos, and my life-long belief, itself an abstraction, that somehow in some way I could make a positive difference to the world and that such abstractions as I adhered to, or aided or advocated were or could be a beginning for a better world, and that to achieve this new world certain sacrifice were, unfortunately, necessary.

A struggle which gave rise to what became – refined, and extended, year after year – The Numinous Way, and which struggle was an interior war to change myself, to actually live, every year, every month, every week, every day, suffused with an empathic awareness and a desire not to cause suffering; the struggle to abandon abstractions.

For nine years or so this interior struggle wore me down, until it gradually faded away. It was akin to cycling up a long steep mountain climb in mist and drizzly rain, struggling on against one’s aching body and against the desire to stop and rest; and not being able to see the end, the summit, of the climb. And then, slowly, the drizzle ceases, the mist begins to clear, the road becomes gradually less steep, and one is there – in warm bright sunshine nearing the summit of that climb, able to see the beautiful, the numinous, vista beyond, below, for the first time, and which vista after such an effort brings a restful interior peace, the silent tears of one person who feels their human insignificance compared to the mountains, the valleys below, the sky, the Sun, and the vast Cosmos beyond: the wyrdful nature of one fleeting delicate mortal microcosmic nexion which is one’s own life.”

Post-2009 Letters And Writings

In 2012 Myatt was contacted, via e-mail, by a journalist employed by the BBC and, over subsequent months, they exchanged correspondence via that medium. In 2013 Myatt published edited extracts from some of this correspondence in Part Three of his book Understanding and Rejecting Extremism: A Very Strange Peregrination (ISBN 9781484854266). He also included some of this correspondence – and some other correspondence with a few other individuals around the same time (2011-2012) – in a posting on his weblog under the title Just My Fallible Views, Again. {8}

This correspondence is not only quite remarkable, given the various assumptions made about Myatt since at least the 1980s, but also is a significant development of the feelings expressed in his pre-2009 private letters. In those pre-2009 letters a certain lofty (even an arrogant) presumption of knowing – of having understood himself and the world – emerges time and time again, as well as certain pontifications based on various abstractions, while the later letters are replete with a certain humility. For instance, in one of these 2011-2012 letters he writes:

“The problem in the past had been me, my lack of understanding of myself and my egoism. It was my fault: not the place, not the time, not the people, for I so desired with that arrogance of youth to exchange this paradise, here, for those ideas, the idealism, the abstractions, I carried around in my prideful hubriatic head. Seldom content, for long, since happiness came with – was – the pursuit, or the gratification of my personal desires. So destructive, so very destructive. So hurtful, inconsiderate, selfish, profane […]

In a letter sent to the BBC journalist he wrote:

[My] recent propensity to be somewhat subsumed with a certain sadness [arose] from not only pondering on such questions as pathei-mathos, the causes/alleviation of suffering, and the nature of religion, expiation, and extremism, but also from understanding, from feeling, just how much suffering I personally have caused during my extremist decades and knowing that had it not been for the tragic death of a loved one some six years ago I would most probably have continued my career as a suffering-causing extremist.

He was even more explicit in another letter to a different correspondent and dated November 2012:

“The reason why I now do not – and have no desire to – “get involved with social change” (or to “go out into the world and try to give something back” as another correspondent recently expressed it) is the reality of me having made, and knowing and feeling I made, so many mistakes, shown such poor judgement, been so arrogant, so selfish, for so many decades – for most of my adult life. Given this reality, I simply do not trust myself anymore not to cause suffering, not to make even more mistakes, not to show poor judgement again. Just as I know my responsibility, my blame, for those my past mistakes and their human consequences. Thus, why would I want to inflict myself on the world anymore? […]

For the simple honest truth is that I now feel, in my very being, that I have no right to, can find no justification for me to – beyond that necessitated by personal honour in the immediacy of the moment – interfere in the lives of others, in however small a way even if my initial motives might be (or seemed to me to be) good. For who I am to judge, decide, things beyond the purvue of empathy and a very personal honour? I am just one fallible exceedingly error-prone human being with a long proven history of impersonal interference, of hubriatic, suffering-causing, and selfish, deeds. Someone who does not trust himself anymore and who values and tries to cultivate wu-wei.”

In a rather remarkable letter dated December 2nd 2012, he explained that:

“In respect of religion, there seems to have grown within me, this past year, a feeling regarding prayer, especially contemplative prayer, or rather that quiet way of being when – with no expectation of or belief in God – no words are desired or required and one is aware of the numinous in such an unaffected way that there is a calmness emanating not from within – not caused by our knowing or feeling of self – but from that ineffable vastness beyond which includes us and all the life that seeps into us, there in our stillness: emanations, of not only the dreams, the hopes, the love, the sadness, the sorrow, the grief, the pain, the joy, the tragedy, felt, known, experienced by we humans millennia after millennia, but also of the being, the essence, of the other life around us, here as Nature, and elsewhere, which, as we, ‘hath but a short time to live’.

A feeling, an intimation, of perhaps in some small way now understanding the Latin Opus Dei – Officium Divinum – as a needful daily reminder of our needful humility, as the plaintive cry Miserere Mei, Deus so reminds, and as the Namaz of Islam also so reminds with its Ruku, Sajdah, and recitation of Subhana Rabbiyal a’la. A needful daily reminder that we are transient beings, prone to dishonour, selfishness, and hubris, but who can be loving and kind, and beings prone to the charisma, the temptation, of words, either our own or those spoken or written by others. A reminder that we can so easily forget, have so often forgotten, that gentleness, that modest demeanour, that understanding, which derives from an appreciation of the numinous and also from one’s own admitted uncertainty of knowing and one’s acknowledgement of past mistakes. An uncertainty of knowing, an acknowledgement of mistakes, that often derive from πάθει μάθος.”

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

My conclusion, therefore, is that his somewhat itinerant adult life has been a Faustian, experiential, quest, with him drifting, stumbling, toward an unknown destination, which destination he has finally reached and which destination he in his post-2011 writings and letters has striven to describe.

Appendix
Some Quotations From The Letters of David Myatt (2002-2009)

[Untitled] February 2003

How foolish, to forget my own understanding: to forget the remembering, the pain, that shaped, changed, evolved such empathy as I possessed so much that – when alone as now in such places as this – I knew the past, felt the future, and, burdened by such knowing, tried hard to keep away the tears of so many centuries of sorrow, so little insight lived.

So hard, it seems, to renounce the passion of a life, as when a relationship of lovers falters, stalls, restarts to stall again; seldom a clean and sudden leaving. Feelings, memories, linger. And there is guilt. Let us not forget the guilt, the hope; the guilt of a duty abandoned […]

Tomorrow, I could have been elsewhere, in a teeming city, talking words of war as if my old hope of inspiring noble deeds to aid those far less fortunate than me was still real in a modern urban world too tired of silence, patience, and too afraid of numinous stillness. I choose not to go; not to speak, and instead will – the goddess permitting – sit here again suspended in time between brown, green and blue […]

If I have anything real to leave in remembrance, let it be such words as these: not the strife; not the anger; not the deaths; not the agitation for action. These are the words of a Spring, newly born between Sun and earth, bringing joy to a man whose hands, back and face have borne the cold toil of outdoor work in Winter.

I hope I do not forget this warmth, this beauty, again…

One Week Beyond Mid-Spring, 2003

It was hope – and another lost love – which took me, once and a decade or more ago, to Egypt to travel in the desert as if such traveling might bring a forgetful peace. It did not work, despite the grim toil of that long journey, and it was only when I returned to Cairo that I forgot. I remember it so well: I had gone, out of politeness, to a concert to see and listen to some singer which some Egyptian I had met enthused about. And there was such beauty there, in her, her voice, in the music, as she sang of many things. Such sadness; such joy, such an embracing, for me, of another world, another culture. I was at home there, listening, feeling, with the audience as the beautiful Samira Said sang, and ever since – in times of personal sadness, rejection, such as this – I remember her concert, or listen to her songs {1}, reminding me of how I am not alone, of how others have, and do, suffer, and have cried, and laughed, and sang of their problems, personal, political, social and otherwise. But most of all I remember that there is another world out there of different, vibrant, cultures, of good people striving in their daily mostly toiling lives with hope for a better more honourable world for themselves, their family, their children, their land.

1) In a recent letter Myatt added: “In the past few years she has changed her style somewhat, less Arabic, more Western. While this new style is interesting, some – myself included – prefer her earlier songs and recordings.”

[Untitled] April 2003

There is, of course, peace here, while the warm Sun lasts and there is some physical tiredness from the hours of physical work, and the very early, Dawn, start. But there is also not only an undercurrent of sad loneliness – for she whom I love has gone, to another – but also an intimation of the past when action, violence, in the world to change the world, brought that exhilaration which true, honourable, warriors know and often seek and which is an end to such loneliness…..

So, to be honest, there is temptation, even here, amid this quiet rural splendour: the temptation to be again what I was when action, a goal, a seeking, an assignment, made me a harmony of body, mind, soul, and life became suffused with a glory redolent of the gods because life was lived on a different, higher, level. There were then no obstacles that could not be overcome; no doubts; not even any self- reflexion.

Is this, then, just one of those periods in my life – of months, maybe a year – when I quietly drift, suffused with the numen, before returning to that other world, of duty, of exploration, of challenges, where lives the honourable warrior? I do not believe it is one of these periods, but I could be wrong; I have been wrong in the past.

°°°°°°°

We Have Been Led Astray, May 2003

How many times have I myself known the simple, gentle, warmth of a love shared? And how many times have I turned away from that toward what I assumed or believed or felt was a duty, thus hardening myself? So much lost, for so little. So much suffering and sadness created by me, in others, in the world: and for what? So much sadness and suffering caused within myself by such a loss.

The truth I have painfully, slowly, discovered in this, the fifth decade of my strange wandering life, is that there is no noble, no good, no honourable duty to anything or anyone which can contradict such love, or reject it, or place it second. What honourable, noble, duty there is can only arise from such love or join with that love in a natural, dwelling, way as when two people, a family, settle to dwell on the land and through their dwelling, their labour, their toil, their love, they create a way of life which is in harmony with all other life, with Nature, and especially with their own loving, rational, honourable, human nature.

This is the quiet numinous way of restraining ourselves by concentrating on what is beyond words, beyond ideas: the way that some of the beautiful music of the past several hundred years is an intimation of, reminding us as it can of the greatest suffering, the greatest joy, and of our own place among Nature, in the Cosmos.

This is the quiet return that is needed – beyond all rhetoric; beyond all propaganda; beyond all ideas, political, religious, otherwise – and beyond all the forms that constrain and try to mould our human nature to some abstract theory or construct. For what is human is this love, this symbiosis between such love, such dwelling, such a gentle seeking yearning born of our questioning nature. All else – all other types of yearning, seeking, striving, duty – detract us and distance us from, or even destroy and negate, our true human nature, and from that evolution of this nature of ours which great music, great Art, great literature, rational ethical Science itself, provide us with an intimation of, a gentle yearning for.

°°°°°°°

The Buzzards Are Calling Again, 2004

Many times, like the growing tree, there by that breeze, I have been swayed – swayed by the sleeping warrior within, who, awakened, has tempted me. So much dishonour in this world; so much I had to again strive to avoid involvement, ready as I was to go to defend the oppressed against the ignoble oppressor. It was, for me, the battle against dishonour that mattered, that called, that awoke – the living of the life of a warrior.

It was not the ideology, not the ideas, not the cause, or even the goals, for these were and are mere causal forms which do not, cannot, contain the essence itself even though, sometimes, they may presence part of it, as a Buzzard, circling, presences one small part of Nature’s life. What mattered then was the striving – the exhilaration of living which presenced honour in a moment, in an explosion of moments, so raising life up, upwards, towards a new living, a new way, nexion as it was to the essence itself, manifest as this essence was, is, can be, in the honour of a warrior. What mattered, then, was such a presencing by someone to redress the balance and bring some honour back into this world. Thus was I, am I, through such diverse presencing, such diverse involvement, a mystery to some, but not to myself… So I was swayed, tempted, and several times became alive again, a different alive as I forsook this quiet reclusive peace to travel, to engage, to live for a while a different way. And now, my work here having ended, I strain again against myself, feeling, feeling the presencing of that past, of those moments of life’s ecstasy.

What of my words, this past year, born of such peace, of such silent wisdom as has kept me here in this place? Have they changed anything, anyone? I do not think so. Are they then as flowers thrusting forth in Spring, born only to die each year, seeding themselves with the hope of rebirth in some future? I do not know, and shall lay this pen aside to close my eyes to I lie on my old coat upon the growing greening grass of one more burgeoning beautiful English Spring.

Demonizing Mr Myatt, Again

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

With the publication in March 2020 of a report by the left-wing political advocacy group calling itself Hope Not Hate, the demonizing of Mr Myatt {1} has reached a new level especially as the “chief executive” of that political advocacy group has, since the publication of that report, ranted about Mr Myatt on an internet audio forum where he, for almost half an hour, repeated his baseless accusations against the O9A. {2}

In that rant he stated, among other things, that Myatt became a Satanist in 1966 and that National Socialism was and is integral to the O9A, that the O9A advocates sexual violence; that in a March 2000 during an interview Myatt carried an SS dagger in the pocket of his Barbour jacket, and handed him a three page document concerning the Rules of Dueling. He also repeated the claim that if someone O9A could not find a suitable human opfer for culling they would sacrifice and animal. He also speaks of O9A supporters as having established groups on encrypted internet platforms such as Telegram which encourage violence and terrorism. He also claimed that the now banned Sonnenkrieg Division was an O9A network; that Myatt in the 1970s in Leeds did deeds of random violence including attacking homeless people; that in the late 1970s Myatt joined Colin Jordan’s British Movement, and that the O9A is the most extreme cult in the world and “has to be stopped”.

From the perspective of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) this is all marvelous propaganda, and may well have Levey-type Satanists envious and desirous of penning even more anti-O9A diatribes.

In respect of Mr Myatt, the portrait presented by the “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group is of Myatt as “an evil mastermind” whose raison d’etre is encouraging terrorism by whatever means. Kudos therefore to that “chief executive” who in his hatred has neglected Myatt’s voluminous post-2011 about rejecting extremism and neglected Myatt’s philosophy of pathei-mathos {3} and who thus has made Myatt into a modern icon of rebellion, Antinomianism, Satanism, and terrorism.

However, for the sake of historical accuracy, we shall correct a few – note: only a few – of the many mistakes that the “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group made in his audio rant.

° Between 1965 and 1967 Myatt was a schoolboy at a private school and living in Singapore. He thus could not then have become a Satanist as the “chief executive” alleges.

There is nothing probative – no evidence – that Myatt became a Satanist in the late 1960s. There is only the fictitious forgery titled Diablerie.

° National Socialism is not and never was integral to the O9A, as a perusal of such O9A texts as The Seven Fold Path explains.

° The O9A has never advocated sexual violence, as a perusal of the O9A corpus would reveal. Indeed, the O9A has issued texts denouncing misogyny and rape: see for example Fake News.

° As noted elsewhere Myatt never carried an SS dagger in the pocket of his Barbour jacket {4}, but once did admit to sometimes carrying a .22 Bersa semi-automatic pistol.

° There is no three page document written by or circulated by Myatt concerning the Rules of Dueling. What exists is a short one-page statement by Myatt which we reproduce here:

[quote]

“The most acceptable and civilized form of duel is by pistol, and those abiding by the Code of Honour are expected to use this form as and when necessary.

A formal challenge to a duel must be personally issued, by one party to the other, at which a date, time and place are specified (Dawn is traditionally favoured). Each duellist must be accompanied by a Second, to ensure fair play and an honourable outcome, as there must be a referee.

At the appointed time and in the appointed place, two revolvers, pistols or duelling pistols, as similar as possible, are checked and prepared by the referee, (ideally a man of honour should keep or have access to a matched pair of pistols specifically made for duelling, capable of firing one round and one round only). These revolvers or pistols, and the bullets, are also checked by the duellists and their seconds. [Note: whatever pistol is used it should be loaded or so adapted that one round and only one round can be discharged from it when the trigger is pulled.]

The referee then allows the duellists to choose a weapon. The duellists stand back to back. At a sign or word from the referee they then walk a set number of paces agreed beforehand (ten being usual) before turning to face each other. The referee then says: “Take aim!” at which they take aim. The referee then says: “Fire!” at which they discharge the weapon. It is considered dishonourable conduct to aim and/or fire before the referee gives the signal to so do.

Should one person fire and miss, or hit and injure, the other duellist before that duellist has also fired, then the person who has so fired must wait, without moving, until his fellow duellist has also fired, if he is capable of so firing.

Honour is satisfied if the duel is undertaken in the above manner.

Some Notes On Duelling

There are four things which need to be understood about personal duels of honour.

(1) The etiquette, or rules, of duelling must be followed, for it is these rules which make this encounter between two individuals a civilized and thus an honourable encounter. A duel of honour is not a brawl, or merely a fight between two individuals – it is a dispassionate meeting of two individuals who use their own will, their own strength of character, to fight in a particular way.

The rules, the etiquette, of duelling make it such a dispassionate encounter – for a duel is a test of courage, of nerve, of character, of personal honour itself. Any and all conduct which is against the rules is dishonourable, and as such the person who does not abide by the rules is not an honourable person, and thus forfeits their honour and their honourable reputation.

If the rules are not followed, it is thus not a duel of honour.

(2) In a duel of honour, deadly weapons must be used. It is the deadly nature of the weapons used, with the possibility of death, which makes the encounter an honourable one. Deadly weapons include pistols, swords and long-bladed fighting knives of the Bowie type.

(3) The duel is a private affair between the two individuals concerned. As such, only the nominated Seconds, and a referee – acceptable by both sides – must be present. It is against the etiquette of duelling for any other people to be present.

(4) A person challenged to a duel must either personally accept the challenge, or decline the challenge. It is dishonourable and cowardly conduct to ignore a challenge once it has been formally issued. If a person who is challenged declines the challenge, then they must issue a personal apology, and if necessary, or called upon to do so, a public apology.

A man of honour will only challenge to a duel those individuals whom he believes can physically defend themselves and their honour with deadly weapons. Thus, it is dishonourable and cowardly if someone who is challenged to a duel tries to get someone else to fight the duel on their behalf.”

° Myatt joined Colin Jordan’s British Movement in 1968, not in the late 1970s.

° The allegation that “if someone O9A could not find a suitable human opfer for culling they would sacrifice an animal” is laughable given that no O9A text mentions this and that O9A texts clearly state that they abhor animal sacrifice since there is an abundance of human dross who could be sacrificed, qv. R. Parker,Praxis and Theory of The Order of Nine Angles – A Précis for Critics, Neophytes, and Academics. 2012.

° There is nothing probative to indicate that Myatt in the 1970s in Leeds did deeds of random violence.

Conclusion

That journalists and others who repeat the allegations and lies made by the “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group without ever having perused O9A texts such as The Seven Fold Path and without having studied Myatt’s post-2011 writings surely indicates something about those journalists and those others.

That the “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group does not, in his 2020 or 2019 reports or in his audio rant or in his conversations with journalists and others, mention Myatt’s voluminous post-2011 writings about rejecting extremism and Myatt’s post-2012 philosophy of pathei-mathos is both interesting and indicative.

Has the “chief executive” even read those writings? Probably not.

What is his comment, for example, on Myatt’s article A Balanced View Of Islam and The West and his books Extremism And Reformation, and A Rejection Of Extremism.

If the “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group has indeed bothered to read such post-2011 writings by Myatt, is the “chief executive” in his fanaticism and prejudice under the delusion that such writings are the work of “an evil mastermind” and thus designed to deceive?

Failure by him to provide answers to such questions is not an option. For if he believes such a delusion that such writings are designed to deceive, then surely it expresses something about the psyche of the “chief executive”, and about his own physis, and about his character, and about his own personal and political agenda.

Furthermore, that the “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group does not mention the rumours that Myatt may, for decades, have been either working for “Special Branch” or be or have been an MI5 agent provocateur {5} is also interesting and indicative. Is the “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group hyping Myatt so that Myatt can continue to be a State-sponsored agent provocateur and be seen by others as an icon of rebellion, Antinomianism, Satanism, and terrorism?

Obsessed With Mr Myatt

O9A. One Image, Ten Thousand Words

O9A Insight Role

It is now apparent that the so-called “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group – a Maltese immigrant to England, a Zionist lover, and a recipient of money from Jewish billionaire George Soros – is obsessed both with a certain Mr Myatt and with the Occult movement, the anarchist sub-culture, the O9A, which the so-called “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group alleges Myatt created and is still a part of.

Hence his March 2020 (and libelous) rant on the “buzzsprout” media platform; {1} his desire to see that Occult movement banned as a “terrorist organization”; and his lies and disinformation and allegations about both that Occult movement and about Mr Myatt. {2}

That his lies and disinformation and allegations are and have been blandly repeated by the Media is indicative of the nature of the modern Media given that the so-called “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group has presented nothing probative to support his lies, his disinformation and his allegations.

A while ago we challenged the so-called “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group to provide actual evidence, and even mentioned an active e-mail address where we might be contacted {3}.

Of course he neither provided actual evidence nor contacted us. Which reaffirmed to us and others his hateful, prejudiced, and hypocritical, nature: in public, he presents himself as a champion of “hope not hate” while he continues to not only make allegations about those he personally dislikes, and is prejudiced against, but also fails to provide actual evidence for his malicious allegations. {4}

As we previously asked of him:

“in regard to your allegations about the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) have you studied the O9A corpus and such texts as the 300 page Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy? {5} If not, then your views about the O9A are – it seems to us, et al – as prejudiced as your views about Myatt.”

As Mr Myatt was fond of quoting: Δίκα δὲ τοῖς μὲν παθοῦσιν μαθεῖν ἐπιρρέπει, [The Goddess] Fairness favours someone learning from adversity.

{1} Update, March 13, 2020: He repeats his pernicious allegations – for which, yet again, he provides no evidence, on a video uploaded to the Facebook page of his political advocacy group.

{2} One pernicious allegation that the so-called “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group regurgitates is that of “cat strangler”, which Myatt has many times refuted: see, for example, p. 217 of the book Encyclopedia of White Power: A Sourcebook on the Radical Racist Right edited by Jeffrey S. Kaplan and published in 2000.

See also https://web.archive.org/web/20091130205840/http://www.davidmyatt.ws/rumors-about-myatt.html which includes the following:

“There is a lot of disinformation about me on the Internet and in various books; and many unsubstantiated rumours…

In such matters, the principle of personal honour applies, for an honourable person would either ignore such disinformation, rumours and allegations, or seek to ask, in person and in private, the individual who is the subject of such things. This is the honourable thing to do, the gentlemanly and lady-like thing to do, and those who do not do this – for whatever reason and from whatever motive – are acting dishonourably… Unfortunately, in these un-numinous times we live in and endure, people of manners – those who behave in a gentlemanly and lady-like way – are a minority…

Thus, in many ways, such rumours and allegations about me are a good test of a person’s character: of their honour and their loyalty…”

In addition, both the police and the RSPCA interviewed Myatt in 1974 shortly after the allegation of animal cruelty was made in a local newspaper, with both the Police and the RSPCA concluding that the allegation was pure journalistic invention, a smear designed to discredit Myatt, who at the time was heavily-involved in the notoriously violent neo-nazi group, the NDFM, and who had, the previous year, been released from prison after serving a prison sentence for violence.

That the so-called “chief executive” of a certain political advocacy group regurgitates such an old and discredited allegation makes one wonder if he was one of the MOACs [Myatt Obsessed Anonymous Cowards] who trolled the internet over a decade ago making allegations about Myatt.

In regard to that 1974 newspaper article, Myatt wrote – in his Towards Identity and the Galactic Empire: Autobiographical Notes, Part One, dated JD2452991.767, that it,

“made sensational claims about me. I had in my naivety decided to give an interview (my first) with a journalist to talk about our new NS movement, the NDFM. I briefly mentioned how it might be possible for chaos to be created by subversive means, and subversive groups, as a prelude to a revolution which an NS movement could take advantage of, just as I made one passing reference to having a theoretical interest in “the Occult” and to having considered investigating it further. The journalist promised to let me read his final copy before it was published and several photographs of me were taken, with him suggesting I hold something to do with the Occult, which I again naively did. Our conversation lasted for about half an hour, during which he took a few notes (it was not recorded).

I assumed in my innocence that he would simply recount what I had said. Of course he neither showed me the article before publication, nor printed what I said, except for one short sentence about causing chaos. The whole article was a fabrication, designed to be sensationalist and to discredit me. This whole episode was to be a very interesting, worthwhile, experience for me: a learning from experience, as Aeschylus wrote.” Source: https://web.archive.org/web/20040419193109/http://www.geocities.com/davidmyatt/notes1.html

°°°°°°°

We republish here an eclectic – and heretical – selection of articles compiled by the TWS Oxonia nexion from often polemical – “dialectical” – articles published on their blog between 2016 and 2019.

Since several of the articles deal with National Socialism, often in the context of both the O9A and anti-fascist propaganda about the O9A, and copious mention is made of Mr Myatt, it seemed relevant for us to reproduce the compilation here.

Given the contents, it is worth mentioning our disclaimer and the two disclaimers made by the TWS nexion, the latter of which has been totally ignored by both anti-fascists and journalists writing about the O9A and its purported connections to neo-nazism:

“We – identifying as O9A and as an independent nexion applying the esoteric philosophy of the O9A including its code of kindred honour – interpret that philosophy as anti-Magian in essence and pro-NationalSocialist and fascist in exoteric practice and as required by the O9A’s Sinister Dialectic.

Our view – as supporters of our Western culture – is that a resurgent National Socialism, or a resurgent fascism, or something politically similar, embodies what is necessary to bring down the Old Order from whose ruins a New Order will emerge.

However, others identifying with or associating themselves with the O9A do not share our interpretation. Some interpret that esoteric philosophy as anarchistic; others as nihilistic; others as elitist in a cultured and aristocratic way.” O9A: The Exoteric And Esoteric Reality

“As has been stated many times by others associating themselves with or identifying with the Order Of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and also by us […] neither they nor “we” (our nexion) represent the O9A and neither do they nor we speak or write “on behalf of” the O9A.

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

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

A Warming Fire, One English November

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

Recently, in the cold of an English November, I was seated before a fireplace of warming burning logs {1} pondering on the writings of a certain David Myatt.

Reading such works of his as Tu Es Diaboli Ianua, {2} and Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos, {3} his translation of and commentary on chapters one to five of the Gospel of John, {4} and his translation of and commentaries on various tractates of the Corpus Hermeticum. {5}

A short walk away from this fireplace, my rooms in an Oxford college where centuries of scholarship seep out from the Oak panelling, from the books on the bookshelves, from the elder wooden desk, and even (sometimes) from the digital texts that “a computer” almost miraculously make visible to me.

For such is how I came to read before a certain warming fire certain “heretical” texts, relevant as they seemed to be given my predilection for Greco-Roman culture and its literature, and sent to me as those Myattian texts were by an Oxfordian colleague.

What astonished me, after reading those unpolitical texts, was – as I discovered – how Myatt was prejudged by various political factions who seemed to make assumptions about him and his past activities without having commented upon – or perhaps without even having read – his texts such as Tu Es Diaboli Ianua and his translations of and commentaries on various tractates of the Corpus Hermeticum.

Where, I wondered, were their comments – their scholarly analysis – of such texts of his? Apparently there are no such comments, no such scholarly analysis. Instead, all they offer are tirades based, apparently, on their adoptive slogan НЕ ЗАБУДЕМ! НЕ ПРОСТИМ! (Never Forget, Never Forgive) and on their “fake news” {6}, that is, upon lies, disinformation, and propaganda. Such a tribute, it seems, to our modern world.

Where, for example to provide just one example among dozens, is their rational comment on what Myatt describes in his monograph Tu Es Diaboli Ianua as the fact that the

“culture of pathei-mathos reveals to us the beauty, the numinosity, of personal love; the numinosity of humility, and compassion; and the tragic lamentable unnecessary suffering caused by hubris, dishonour, selfishness, inconsiderance, intolerance, prejudice, hatred, war, extremism, and ideologies. A world-wide suffering so evident, today, for example in the treatment of and the violence (by men) toward women; in the continuing armed conflicts – regional and local, over some-thing – that displace tens of thousands of people and cause destruction, injury, and hundreds of thousands of deaths; and evident also in the killing of innocent people by those who adhere to a harsh interpretation of some religion or some political ideology”.

Where is the understanding, the empathy, of Myatt the author by those who politically declare they are championing hope not hate? There seems to be no such understanding, no such the empathy. Instead, there seems to be propaganda, accusations, based on the Soviet slogan НЕ ЗАБУДЕМ! НЕ ПРОСТИМ! – “Never Forget, Never Forgive”.

For such politicos make accusations about individuals and then move-on to whomsoever else they declare are transgressing whatever boundaries – whatever denotata – they themselves in what they believe is their “righteous crusade” are fighting and thus are in opposition to. For according to them, with their idealogical certitude: Never Forget, Never Forgive.

Thus are they, unknowingly – or perhaps knowingly – cultivating, causing, hatred rather than hope. Cultivating, causing, conflict based on their stereotyping of whomsoever they with their hubriatic certitude of knowing declare are their enemies.

For myself, I take refuge in reading – before a warming fire of logs – Myattian texts such as Tu Es Diaboli Ianua and his translations of and commentaries on various tractates of the Corpus Hermeticum, intuitively aware as I am (rightly or wrongly) that over centuries such wisdom as such scholarly texts reveal transcends such political, such unempathic, such hateful, slogans as НЕ ЗАБУДЕМ! НЕ ПРОСТИМ!

Scandza Forum & Myatt

O9A. One Image, Ten Thousand Words

O9A Insight Role

°°°°°°°°°

Editorial Note: The following interesting quotation is from an article titled Scandza Forum: Jødehat i sentrum på amputert konferanse, published on October 13, 2019, in the Norwegian on-line Transit Magasin.

It discusses a conference by members of the right-wing Scandza Forum held in October 2019. According to the article, David Myatt was a former conference participant along with Olena Semenyaka who is International Secretary of the National Corps, the political branch of the Ukrainian Azov Regiment.

°°°°°°°°°

Andre tidligere konferansedeltakere inkluderer ukrainske Olena Semenyaka og britiske David Myatt. Olena Semenyaka er internasjonal sekretær for Nasjonalt Korps, den politiske grenen av det ukrainske Azov-regimentet. Azov-regimentet er en ultranasjonalistisk militærenhet som deltar i krigen mot de russiskkontrollerte separatistene, og har fått økt oppmerksomhet det siste året etter at det kom frem at de i flere år har pleid kontakt med amerikanske nynazister inkludert det ekstreme og voldelige nettverket Atomwaffen Division.

Både Frodi Midjord og Greg Johnson har også deltatt på konferanser i Nasjonalt Korps’ hovedkvarter i Kyiv, sistnevnte sammen med Bjørn Christian Rødal fra Selvstendighetspartiet. Olena Semenyaka var også tilstede på konferansen i København i september 2018.

David Myatt er en tidligere nynazist som konverterte til islam i 2001, men som også etter dette fortsatte å forfekte ekstreme synspunkter inkludert holocaustbenektelse og støtte til «global jihad» mot sionismen, en eufemisme for «jødemakt». I 2010 erklærte han at han hadde forlatt både islam og alle former for ekstremisme til fordel for en personlig verdensanskuelse kalt «The numinuos way» basert på empati, ydmykhet og ikke-inngripen.

Mens han benekter det selv, er de fleste enige om at David Myatt er identisk med Anton Long, grunnleggeren av den satanistiske gruppen Order of Nine Angles (ONA), en forfatter som har fått ny aktualitet som inspirasjon for enkelte unge nynazister. Myatt ble observert på Scandza Forums konferanse i København i 2018.
