Lambasting Mr Griffin

odal3

Editorial Note: We republish here another interesting and controversial article by those ‘three wyrd sisters’ who style themselves as belonging to the “ethical National Socialist wing” of the O9A. The article is about Mr Griffin, with the authors also writing about the Order of Nine Angles, about Mr Myatt, his Vindex mythos, and (of course) about National Socialism. The article is decidedly heretical, both politically and in terms of modern Satanism and the O9A.

Lock Up Your Daughters And Sons

The mention of the Order of Nine Angles in a recent and much hyped document written by Nick Griffin – the former leader of the British National Party – and his claim that there is a “disturbing trend towards Satanism” in the so-called Alt-Right movement, provides us (we of the “ethical National Socialist wing” {1} of the O9A) with an excuse to pontificate about that document, which is titled Alt Right: Not Right.

The document – styled an “Intelligence Report” issued by something which does not seem to actually exist, the grandly named “Rosslyn Institute for Traditional and Geopolitical Studies” – is dominated by both images of the many people Griffin lambastes and screenshots of articles by and about such people, with the accompanying text reading like some copy a hack down-at-heel writer has written because someone paid him to do so or because he hopes his “sensationalist story” might garnish him kudos and propel him back into prominence in the milieu of right-wing politics if not in Western Europe than at at least “in places such as Poland, Hungary and Russia”.

Griffin writes: “the predators among the Muslims, the hate-filled followers of arguably heretical Wahhabism, want your daughters. But the homosexualists [of the Alt-Right] want your sons.”

Which brings us to his agenda and his thesis, evident in two main themes: his apparent belief that “White nationalism” has been and is being infiltrated by homosexuals, and his claim that the political and cultural right has always been a movement “based on traditional values and, in general, on conventional Christian attitudes.”

That the sources Griffin uses in order to try and “prove” his thesis are mainly hearsay, newspapers, and items posted on the internet – blogs, websites, and uploaded videos – makes his self-styled “Intelligence Report” an example of how hack writers employ – or inadvertently commit – the fallacies of argumentum ad hominem and of illicit transference, since Griffin uses such populist, transitory and often unreliable if not disreputable sources to lambaste a plethora of individuals, invariably adding a few abusive comments of his own, while also arguing from the particular to the general.

For rather than rationally discussing ideas – such as whether the political and cultural right is and was a movement based on conventional Christian attitudes {2} – he just criticizes individuals, occasionally inserting his personal opinion about global events and various political organizations, such as that there is an “effort to push America into a new war in the Middle East” and that the “aim is not to help protect Western nations [but] to fan support for sanctions and war against Iran,” and also that “the Counter-Jihad street movement is […] promoted with the enormous resources of hard core Zionists.” Which personal opinions – blandly stated without supporting factual evidence and dispersed as they are among all the ad hominems – are really just propagandistic rants.

As to his agenda, Griffin is quite clear: “To turn in favour of […] social liberalism means automatically to forfeit the future support of traditionalists and Christians in places such as Poland, Hungary and Russia.” He thus is positioning himself as some sort of champion of Christian “family values” in order to try and impress various right-wing individuals in such lands.

All of which make for an interesting case study in regard to the Magian distortion foisted upon the West; of how that distortion is not understood even by former and current leaders of the political “right wing”; of why political movements, based on the idea of existing or former nation-States, are not and can never be an answer to that distortion; and of what the ethos of the West actually was and could be if understood and evolved: that is, of Western culture as heir to Greco-Roman paganism and spirituality; of Christianity as part of the Magian distortion; of the German National Socialism of the NSDAP – and The Third Reich – as a natural, instinctive, if somewhat flawed reaction to the materialistic Magian distortion, and of how the pagan spirituality of the West can be evolved to be the basis for new ways of life beyond the old idea of contesting nation-States and the uncultured barbarism of might is right. {3}

In addition – as the O9A have explained numerous times over the decades – Satan, correctly understood, is not, as Howard Levey stated, a symbol of egoism and self-indulgence {4}, but rather an archetype for those human beings who ‘diabolically’ plot or who scheme against, or who are ‘diabolically’ opposed to, everything Magian. For

“the ‘satanic’ overtones of the ONA serve several subversive purposes. First, to propagate the heresy – contrary to the magian (Jewish) ‘satanism’ of Levey and others – that, as I mentioned in a previous reply, “as originally used and meant, the term satan refers to some human being or beings who ‘diabolically’ plot or who scheme against or who are ‘diabolically’ opposed to those who consider themselves as ‘chosen’ by their monotheistic God.” Those who consider themselves so ‘chosen’ are the Jews. Second, to attract a certain type of rebellious young person who is prepared to do stuff – as an ‘insight role’ or otherwise – that NS and racial nationalist political groups can’t do. Third, to propagate a certain mystique, an occult aura, of dangerousness, difficulty, perplexity, and to confuse outsiders.” {5}

Concerning The Vindex Mythos

David Myatt

Editorial Note: We publish here (in pdf format) an interesting and informative essay about David Myatt’s Vindex mythos, which Reichsfolk essay – with its study of Myatt’s Vindex: Destiny of the West and his Mythos of Vindex – shows that its basis is honor, an appreciation of the numinous, an understanding of the Magian distortion that has afflicted Western civilization, and an affirmation that National Socialist Germany was “fundamentally an instinctive and natural reaction to the dominance of the Magian ethos, and represented a mostly unconscious expression of the numinous, honourable, warrior ethos.”

A Review Of Myatt’s Mythos of Vindex

David Myatt

David Myatt’s tract The Mythos of Vindex – finally published in its entirety this year {1} – is something of a hybrid text; a rather strange mixture of pro National Socialist sentiment together with polemics not only directed at the things – such as the State – that made National Socialist Germany what it was and might have been had the Axis won the Second World War, but also directed at the things that made the West what it is now: to wit colonialism, industry, and technology.

For it is as if the author is torn between two weltanschauungen, as well he might have been given the date of its composition (1998-1999) and the dates of its revision (2002-2005). For the years 1998 to 1999 marked Myatt’s transition from a neo-nazi to a Muslim, while 2002 to 2005 were dominated by his travels in the Muslim world, his overt support for Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, and Hamas, and of course his strategy to bring neo-nazis and radical Muslims together to fight their ‘common enemy’. For the tract reads as if it was originally intended for a specific audience – neo-nazis and those belonging to neo-völkisch groups – but with Myatt trying to offer something for his Muslim readers; hence perhaps  the passages about the colonialism of the ‘White hordes’ (which are basically polemics directed at those foreign devils), his mention of the treatment of Muslims by those foreign devils, and his praise of the Mujahideen and of Mullah Omar.

There are also several apparent discrepancies in the text. For instance regarding the British Empire with Myatt dividing that Empire somewhat simplistically into ‘the old Empire’ (before the Victorian era, which began in 1837) and a later Empire, writing that “the true, respectful, civilizing mission of [the British] Empire gave way to a brute Imperialism based upon financial gain.” The old Empire he admires, the later one he lambastes even though he goes on to write that “to make the world truely civilized we need another Empire, created and maintained by honourable, idealistic people, who look to the examples of the Roman, the Islamic and British Empires for inspiration.” Perhaps he should have written ‘original British’ rather than just ‘British’.

Another apparent discrepancy is his praise for the tribal way of life in pre-colonial Africa which he says, without providing any dates, was “ruthlessly destroyed” by those damn “foreign devils” (the White Hordes of Homo Hubris) and yet he later writes, again without providing any dates, of British administrators ending “the bribery and corruption of officials which was endemic” in India.

Such quibbles aside, the main problem I find with the tract is that Myatt eulogizes the clan and the tribe, and rural life in general, and yet states several times that the fundamental aim of the new Imperium is the colonization of Outer Space. But just how would a society or societies composed of clans and tribes, and presumably a mostly rural way of life, achieve that without industrial factories, large corporations manufacturing technological products, large-scale – government sized – coordination and administration, and scientific, university based, research funded by a national-sized government which by necessity would have to tax its citizens to pay for such research, such universities, and such a complex administration? In addition, if profit was not the motive for such factories and such corporations then surely the only other option would be government funding, which leads one to enquire where and how would a government find the money? To pursue space-travel surely a prosperous and wealthy society – a nation-Sate, or several nation-States cooperating with one another – and thus a government or governments would be required. {2}

Which returns us to National Socialist Germany – a scientific and technologically advanced society with a national government – and what might such a society have achieved, in scientific and technological and social, terms had it been victorious in the World War Two. Which naturally leads to how National Socialist Germany came into being: through a political movement gaining political power.

Perhaps Myatt envisaged his Vindexian clans and tribes fighting and overthrowing a government and then forming a new government, for he does write of Vindex as “a modern and successful guerilla leader who devises new strategies and new tactics to defeat the armed forces of the Old Order,” and that “it seems increasingly likely that the first battles in the coming war against the forces of the Old Order will be urban ones and develope as a natural consequence of some urban gang gaining practical control of certain urban areas such that they become the effective and the visible forces of law and order in those areas.”

If that is indeed what he envisaged, as seems likely, then he perhaps should have spelled it out, as he did in earlier tracts such as his Practical Guide To Aryan Revolution in which he wrote about how to ferment chaos and insurrection and wrote of a guerilla campaign lasting at least a decade.

All that being said, The Mythos of Vindex has the potential to inspire a new generation of native Europeans who, seeing the failure over the past fifty years of right-wing political organization after right-wing political organization in places such as Britain, desire a new way to fight ‘the system’. At the very least it contributes, in a positive way, to the debate about neo-völkisch groups and their aims regarding reviving ancestral traditions and alternative ways of living.

{2} It has been brought to my attention (kudos to Pasi R and Scott L) that in two articles, dating from around 2009, Myatt theorizes about how a society based on clans might develop a new ‘acausal’ technology that, in his words, does not depend on “the unethical abstraction of the modern nation-State and the un-numinous ways of living which go with such an abstraction,” and thus does not “involve large national or supra-national industries”, and is not “reliant upon the usury, and the supra-national trade and commerce, which all modern States and nations depend upon.”

This is the first publication of the complete edition of David Myatt’s text The Mythos of Vindex, although various and sometimes substantial extracts from it have been published over the years. Written between 1998 and 1999, with some parts revised by Myatt between 2002 and 2005, it expands upon, refines, and develops the themes he wrote about in his 1984 pamphlet Vindex: Destiny of The West.

Some Reflexions On O9A Aural Tradition

odal3

That the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) has an aural tradition – taught privately from individual Adept to individual Initiate – has long been known among the Occult cognoscenti, referred to as that tradition has been by Anton Long in various O9A texts from the 1980s on, and with some of the tradition so taught having been the subject of various now published MSS, such as those referring to the tradition of the Rounwytha, those relating to Shropshire legends regarding King Arthur, those relating to alchemy and lapis philosophicus; those stories related in ‘the deofel quartet’ and in various sinister short stories; and those relating to the esoteric meaning of ‘the nine angles’.

However, two aspects of the ‘secret traditions’ of the O9A that have, until recently, been rarely publicly mentioned by O9A Adepts are the much commented upon – by outsiders – suspected link between the O9A and National-Socialism, and the esoteric pagan ethos of the O9A and which pagan ethos is most manifest (exoterically) in the O9A code of kindred honour and thus in (a) the support for ancestral tribes and clans over and above The State, and (b) in the mythos of Vindex, with Vindex being the ‘against Time’ hero/heroine par excellence {1} and the one of whom Adolf Hitler spoke to his confidantes about, knowing as he did that he himself was only preparing the way for such a person. As Savitri Devi wrote:

“The last Incarnation of Him-Who-comes-back, the last Man against Time, has many names. Every great faith, every great culture, nay, every true (living or obsolete) form or a Tradition as old as the fall of man (and as the subsequent yearning for the lost earthly Paradise) has given Him one…”

She named him Kalki; the O9A names this person Vindex and – in line with their code of kindred honour and their sinisterly-numinous and Rounwytha traditions – insists that Vindex could be either male or female.

Regarding the O9A and NS, links hitherto rarely publicly mentioned by O9A Adepts, at least until the past year when various items were released by various Adepts which drew attention to this particular ‘secret’ aspect of O9A aural tradition. Items which appeared – mostly via the modern medium of the internet – only to (in many cases) disappear again shortly thereafter. Stories, for example, such as the one titled Selann; or an apparent 2015 interview with Anton Long; or various compilations of selected NS writings by DM; or a compilation of texts (with an introduction by Richard Stirling) regarding the O9A and National-Socialism. All of which, and similar, items were and are only a small part of the O9A mythos, of its Labyrinthos Mythologicus. Just as the ‘sinisterly-numinous’ life of David Myatt – and whether his Islam years and his ‘numinous way/philosophy of pathei-mathos’ were/are sincere or just extended O9A insight roles {2} and/or whether his own diverse, complex, life {3} is an example of what following the O9A seven-fold way means and implies in real life {4} – form part of that mythos.

For such an esoteric mythos is designed to intrigue, to inspire, to sometimes amuse our kind, to cause controversy, to annoy, to be a test; to provide or provoke in some individuals an insight, an acausal knowing, beyond words; and also possibly be one way to not only intentionally mislead the unwary but also lead others to make certain unwarranted (sometimes prejudiced) assumptions about ‘us’ and about the O9A.

As so often, the Occult cognoscenti, and those striving to follow the O9A seven fold way or one of its other praxises, will know or can via their own efforts and/or by the use of certain Dark Arts discover the truth presenced by and embedded within such a mythos, and to their credit quite a few individuals associated with or inspired by the O9A have over the past few years independently discovered the truth.

{2} Senholt – in his Secret Identities in the Sinister Tradition: Political Esotericism and the Convergence of Radical Islam, Satanism, and National Socialism in the Order of Nine Angles [in ‘The Devil’s Party: Satanism in Modernity’. Oxford University Press. pp. 250–274] – considered Myatt’s Islam years to be such an insight role. Similarly, Van Luijk – in his Children of Lucifer: The Origins of Modern Religious Satanism, Oxford University Press, 2016, p.373 – raised the possibility that Myatt’s ‘numinous way/philosophy of pathei-mathos’ is yet another sinister insight role. As someone associated with the English-based L316 Lympstone Nexion mentioned on an internet forum some years ago now:

“As to the Numinous Way, I think that’s the most subversive of the entire tri-headed monster that is the memeplex (ONA, Numinous Way, Reichsfolk). It has a nice coating of ‘respect for all life’ and empathy which are things I can agree with absolutely, and are much easier to accept than the focus on the Sinister of the ONA, however both have the same aim in my view. Imagine if the Numinous Way caught on (which it’s more apt to do than the ONA by definition), and people developed that profound and real respect for one another as Nexions – and people comported themselves with absolute responsibility. By definition the deaths the system causes and running around after money would become repugnant (because it is) naturally as people became more aware of what they were contributing to (as the meme requires). The Numinous way also requires a degree of self reliance and self awareness that the system currently finds repugnant. Imagine if they (per the tenets of the Numinous Way) resolved their disputes among each other (without relying on the state, including through trial by combat). What you’d have is a group of people, driven by a seemingly positive motive, living totally outside the law (among their own) and actively taking responsibility for the horrific actions that the state forces them to be party to every day. They’d be de facto criminals in the eyes of the State. That’s truly subversive right there, but also esoterically does represent the complete circle. It’s the reconciliation where the Sinister Numinous, meets the Numinous.”

O9A Occultism

Order of Nine Angles

O9A

O9A Occultism

A Bosnian O9A nexion (ABG Lodge) – in an interesting comment on David Myatt’s 1990s neo-nazi Reichsfolk {1} text Occultism and National-Socialism (pdf) – recently {2} wrote:

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

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

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