It’s Raining in Utopia!

It’s funny what ‘Satanists’ qualify as their Satan-ism these days.  I can’t tell you how many of these sheep in wolve’s clothing I’ve come across.  On one hand they parrot off some Might as Right rhetoric and on the other they  complain about their lack of it because they feel entitled.    Entitled to a job because they lack the ambition to go into business for themselves.    Entitled to free money because they lack job skills.    The thing about having Might is, we that have it do a fair bit more than just survive.  We flourish.   Are there ups and downs?  You bet your ass there are but a down-slide isn’t exactly letting the bottom drop out.    Even if your personal circumstances change, you execute a plan and learn to live within your means.     When that is no longer satisfactory, your wants and needs drive your ambitions.   The life you save may be your own.

Some of these people are just barely surviving and they aren’t exactly the fittest of the bunch.  They demand the government (the very thing they claim to revel against) support them with social benefits.  They demand some entrepreneur just give them a job, or else waive their entitlement attitude around.    Adding insult to injury, they want to tell these successful people how to run their business and where to stand on social issues.    It’s no wonder these people can only get by by sucking the government teet.  Who else is going to enforce these companies to comply?  Certainly not some poser with no real power of his own.  Some of these people even claim to be Deists without a full grasp of the natural pecking order.  They usually get off their ass when the situation gets desperate:  Reactive vs. Proactive.  

 

“If you believe Might is Right, it follows that whoever cannot hold their ground does not deserve to keep it.” – James D. Sasswelfare-1

It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there, you do what you gotta do to make it.  The amoral don’t even bat an eyelash.    I’m certainly not taking any moral high-ground if you choose to scam the system and reap your ‘due rewards’ but don’t go pissing and moaning about it later when you figure out how the system actually works.  It’s the logic at work that gives me pause.     Time catches us all, so as age sets in and you realize you have nothing to show for all your indulgences – may you perish!    I don’t expect you to go quietly with dignity, I know full well you’ll make a lot of noise and hang on longer than you should.

Money isn’t everything.  Believe me when I say, I know that there’s other ways to go about personal prosperity.    It’s the hypocrisy of claiming one way while actually practicing another that so many of these flag-waivers don like a crown of thorns. Who do they think they’re really fooling?   It reminds me of the analogies provided by the Greek historian Plutarch to understand the benefit of passion balanced with reason.    For instance when speaking on matters of love, instead of likening it to the commonly used red-Rose, he uses the Asparagus (acutifolius) which is covered in many thorns but produces the sweetest of fruits.  It is for this reason that it was chosen for bridal wreaths.    Patience and consideration are virtues that temper Love.    A personal failure can certainly sting like the prick of a thorn but considering the fruits of patience can certainly be far more rewarding than allowing the pain to defeat you.9-p70try2-medium-1

The most relevant of  Plutarch’s advice is the Hupo Pyros (union forged by Fire), the indissoluble flame of Eros balanced with the Tou Phronountos (man of sense), an ability to reason rationally even if inflamed with passion.  [ Spoon-feeding isn't exactly my aim here, a few resource links may be useful to see what I'm looking at more clearly, or else fall subject to Nero's Lens].

I guess it’s just easier to sit on your hands and complain.  Hey, the government is paying for your Internet Service too, I’m sure – may as well make the most of it.  Indulge!

 “If the polling results of the pilot hold true across the nation, then it’s clear that the very wealthy hold different political views from the general public. It also seems clear that the one-tenth-of-the 1% has greater political power than ordinary citizens and that they are backing policies that only some of us support.  That “raises a serious challenge to a core democratic value, i.e., the idea that government policy-making should be attentive to the interests of all citizens.” -  Source

 

 

“Democracy is the path to Socialism” – Karl Marx

I find some of Lenin’s work insightful and amusing.  The “Useful Idiots” premise (erroneously attributed to Lenin) has been in use for centuries to describe the sort of person that propagates a cause but aren’t fully aware of the goal.  The Occupy Movement would be a modern example of proper application of this political jargon.    Friedrick Hayek in his classic work “The Road to Serfdom” spoke of this very thing some 50 years ago when he said:

“that democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only un-achievable, but that to strive for it produces something so utterly different that few of those who may now wish it would be prepared to accept the consequences, many will not believe until the connection has been laid bare in all its aspects”.    

The consequences of the welfare state where the poor are rewarded for their inability to participate in the economy as nothing more than consumers, to the point where the economy itself suffers and there’s a trickle-down effect which affects the people that produce.  This is particularly obvious in many European countries where no safety-net was in place to limit social programs and plummet down to the bottom was paved with ‘good intentions’, what happens when the bottom drops out?  A domino effect in the World Economy.    Even if Hayek had some rather liberal views and spat on Liberty, he knew a thing or two about economics.  The U.S. is hanging in a hand-basket, and the government continues to grow and usurp power over citizens because of the rampant slave morality used to justify inaction.  Americans have become complacent, lazy and entitled.    If it becomes yet another Welfare State, here’s what we have to look forward to:

 

1.  Government seizures of lawful private property through excessive taxation.

2.  Collective Judgement of Government vs. Judgement of the Individual.

3.  Reduced privatization in favor of Government Run institutions.

4.  Excessive Government Control which breeds a culture of corruption.

 

Now, some Satanists may revel in this notion - “Let it all burn!” they may proclaim, but take a good hard look at the continent of Africa and it’s culture of corruption, see how that pans out.  It’s rather easy for Americans to peek at other cultures safely from the protected freedoms of comfort; not so easy when it’s busting through your front door and throwing your ass out on the front lawn with a grand finale bullet to the head.    Our nature is paradoxical  in that we each do a fair bit of corrupting of our own in spite of claiming to have an objective self-interest in self-preservation.   Man is easy to subject to coercion and control.  Even if he is widely aware of the sort of moral realism he’s been conditioned to believe in, all fabricated in the moral imagination, he believes he’s got it all under control.  It accounts for the gaggles of ‘Satanists’ that speak out of both sides of their mouths and really think they’ve got the superior logic.  Can’t hardly blame the rest of us for using them as shooting practice.  Kill Derps. 

 

I run into this sort of thing all the time when kicking the can around with other ‘Satanists’ online.  I’m truly amazed at the justifications they offer for living just like everyone else but with a special little badge they pin to their chest, like some Harry Potter magic, it transforms them into the Ubermensch.  Meanwhile no one can see this little power pin, while they’re eating the government cheese, living in public housing, remain penniless and powerless to do what they actually want to do.  It’s raining opportunity in Utopia, just have to click your heels together three times to get there!  So long as they remain adversarial and provocative and Sinister they’re Satanists.  /sarcasm

Creature Comforts…

Satanist, is a fitting moniker for a creature born to this world.  In every aspect of life, there are influences.  Either we can let them in, or oppose them.    Layer upon layer, these influences pile up.   We would like to think that we’re consciously aware of them at all times.  That everything we do is a deliberate action, coming from the bowels of our being.  Truth is, the majority of our thoughts and feelings were nurtured at such an early age, that unless each and every one of them is analyzed and scrutinized with intellectual honesty, then we’re imitating.  Our thoughts and actions were pre-determined long ago.  Some memory to identify with, some story to consider, some mask to wear as we set out onto the world the world stage.  Even as adults, these influences creep in the back door.  Not even maturity can catch them all.

 

“Hades is not to be soothed, neither overcome, wherefore he is most hated by mortals of all gods.”

(Agamemnon. Homer, Iliad ).

Devil’s Notebook page 63:

A Satanist should not allow himself to be programmed by others.  He should fight tooth and nail against it, for that is the greatest enemy to his freedom of spirit.  It is the very denial of life itself; which was given to him for a wonderous, unique experience – nor for imitation of the colorless existence of others.  

 

Charles Caleb Colton, a 19th century eccentric, writer and art collector, is best known for this aphorism:

“Imitation is the sincerest [form] of flattery.”

 

It’s sincerity is drawn from a person seeking to be just like the person they are mimicking and a flattery to the person being imitated. There is however a dichotomy at work,  as some influences are thought to be positive;  (such as feeling inspired by another, or seeking to perform to the best of your abilities when being instructed by a mentor or role-model), while other influences are seen as negative (your person is thought to be corrupted by the ‘wrong kind’ of influences),  Good vs. Evil.

 

Devil’s Notebook page 17, On the Importance of Being Evil:

If evil were by chance eradicated, the race would die of inertia…at least under existing standards of mental and emotional development.  That the villain is the most formidable enemy of boredom was proven in a rather quaint manner by a short-lived tabloid called Good News.   Feeling that the populace was weary of the standard journalistic fare of murder, rape, war, riot, scandal and catastrophe, Good News printed just that – good news.  It valiantly lasted two or three issues before its not untimely demise.  Why did it die?  Good news is only really good to those directly involved.  Most people lead such futile and useless lives that only bad news makes them feel better. 

 

“Better to live in fellowship with the deathless gods continually, rich, wealthy, and enjoying stores of grain, than to sit always in a gloomy cave: and, as regards honor, I too will enter upon the rite that Apollo has. If Zeus will not give it me, I will seek to be a prince of robbers. And if Apollo shall seek me out, I think another and a greater loss will befall him. For I will break into his great house, and will plunder therefrom splendid tripods, and cauldrons, and gold, and plenty of bright iron, and much apparel.”

(Hermes to Maia. Homeric Hymn to Hermes 170).

So what’s the Bad News?

 

Whistle blowers, spin-doctors, conspiracy junkies, and psychic vampires are writing your name on their list,  writing your story in a new tabloid for the herd ‘community’.   They are absolutely terrified of the Threat of Peace.  Does anyone really grow in contentment?   People thrive on drama, gossip and the miseries of others.  What’s that old saying?  Misery loves company!  If there is none to be found, you just create it!  Life is a Drama.  A Divine Comedy!

 

 “Most hateful to me are you of all gods on Olympus, for ever is strife dear to you and wars and fightings.”

(Zeus to Ares. Homer, Iliad ).

Devil’s Notebook, The Threat of Peace, page 51

The pleasure/pain factor is the entire basis of sado-masochistic activity.  What invariably begins as an unpleasant experience evolves into eagerly-anticipated gratification.  Here we have the basis for eustress phenomena.  If a child receives little attention except through punishment, that child begins to court punishment.  If punishment is received at the hands of someone who is stimulating, the attention is well worth it.  

 

Thus, if your name ends up on lists by the neighborhood watch-dog, you must be renowned for giving him an ample dose of the punishment he seeks.  You are so stimulating to him he simply cannot get enough!    If you are an adept in S&M, then you know that the Masochist controls the Sadist.  Not into the kink?  Then, empty your cages and stop feeding the animals! Without you, they just starve off and die, or else move on to another handler.   Some deserve a good hunting; it keeps them on their toes…Trained.  They are constantly looking over their shoulder for the hunter in shadow; a bending of the light, alteration of perception, and in focus of Nero’s Lens.  The most prolific Witches of this world keep many souls in jars.   The most dangerous of villains are even more skilled hunters of the Witches bane.  Where comfort exists, there will always be the Evil Specter’s taunting pleasure.

In Plato’s Symposium, the anecdote offered, a dialogue between Socrates and the priestess Diotima, explains that Love is a great Daimon.  An intercessor between  man and his Spirit.

 

“What then is Love?” I asked; “Is he mortal?” “No.” “What then?” “As in the former instance, he is neither mortal nor immortal, but in a mean between the two.” “What is he, Diotima?” “He is a great spirit (daimon), and like all spirits he is intermediate between the divine and the mortal.” “And what,” I said, “is his power?”

“He interprets,” she replied, “between gods and men…”

 

 

Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, seems fitting here.  What Plato identified as the human Spirit, is that which moves the mind.  For the mind does nothing on its own,  some would draw a line in the sand to divide what we might call the organic self from the passionate self (Spirit).    How can we have one with out the other?  The relationship is a symbiosis.  Can we denote its actions as Good & Evil, and if so what is responsible for them?  The biological or the Spiritual?  If the Specter haunts the psyche, is it Evil?  Can the human being in totality be corrupted within the natural world?

In other words, man has fallen away from all of the influences of society to raise him up a Good and subordinate Spirit.  Any deviation from the plan, would then be considered a malfunction in thinking.  Is the organ broken or merely playing a new tune?    If we are to consider the natural world fully, then wouldn’t that also include corruption?  It is after all part of the condition of being human, unless of course you believe the Evil Specter to be a devious spirit that can not only possess man, but command him like a puppet.   The comforts of belief!      Man attains knowledge and the more he stores away in his mind, the better off he is.  Or, so they say.    If we take into consideration the allegory the Cave presents, we see that vetting out what knowledge does to the human Spirit, that it may very well be an Evil too.   When the prisoners have been freed and turn towards the light, they don’t run towards it, instead they seek the comforts they once knew in the shadow.  The familiarity of a darker time.   What compels us towards knowing, if achieving it is wrought with so much discomfort and pain?

 

Is knowledge beckoning us to answer its call, or is the Mind simply compelled forward by the biological mechanism in its design?  If Creationists really do believe in an intelligent designer, then surely we were designed Evil and corrupt.  If we side with Evolution, then we’re expected to accept that our organic parts are just a product of random events and adaptation.   Mind?  Pah!   

The philosopher is a lover of knowledge, so the cup from which it flows,  sits on a pedestal of corruption.    He’s been smitten by Eros and Psyche hasn’t a chance in hell to stay the course in Hades.    At least, not without a little help from Persephone’s pity.  Still, Psyche’s curiosity, her need to know, would cause her to fall into a Stygian Sleep.  Had Eros not wiped the death clean off of her, she would not ascend to become the personification of the human spirit and goddess in Mt. Olympus.      In short, our passions shape self as much as our sense of self, drives our passions.

We are creatures of habit.  Some habits are thought to be Good and beneficial to us, while others are degenerating the human soul… EVIL.    The Satanist moves about like Devil,  he muses with the natural world and it compels him forward.  Whether for Good or Evil,  who can say?  Some find themselves comforted by the knowledge that man was made inherently Good, in the image of some notion that ironically, came from his own mind.  While others find it unnerving that you can keep peeling back mask after mask and still find  more masks!   Do you stop peeling the onion or eat your share of comfort food?

Now is the time to Panic…

Paranoia, is just another term for ignorance.  - Hunter S. Thompson

The paranoid:  How do they live?  In a perpetual state of ignorance!  They don’t know, so they must concoct a narrative to move their discomfort back dead-center of the comfort zone.    This is the mild end, a place for the little story-tellers to gather.  On the more extreme end you have those that panic.  This type allows their paranoia to brew so it bubbles over the vat of bullshit they’ve cooked up.  Mmm mmm mmmm and they sure as hell think they are some hot-shit.  These lavations spill over the dam in a tidal wave of noxious gas.

It stinks like the low-tide at noon at Boston harbor.  There lay in wake, a sea of carcasses of almost an alien quality because the pollution has caused these creatures to adapt to filth.  They are so used to being so goddamn paranoid, they actually believe their imaginations are the state of things.

If I seem apathetic towards them it’s because I can’t muster a fuck to give other than to point out the little panic attacks in progress.  Red Alert:  This one is about to blow!  Clear a path!   I’ll take a couple of steps back and witness the fish-flopping for my personal amusement, that’s me in the shallow end.  Over in the deep where I mingle with those unseen things in the darkness of the Abyss, I have my hand in it.

 Keep your eyes on the Watch-tower.   Pick up clues, look for hints, anything at all that will cure your ignorance and while you’re at it, heed this warning: You are surely in over your head.

Update: Feedback to the 9@9 March 9th Episode

MP3 download Archive and 9@9 Episode “Us and Them

To reiterate the purpose of the show:

“Nine characters @ Nine P.M. (somewhere)… Explore the Left-hand-path analytically to flesh out ideas, theoretically capture its essence and attack its form. Each player seeks to both challenge and entertain you. Callers are encouraged to bring something thought-provoking to each segment.”

This exchange on Facebook was shared with me, since I do not have an account there.  I found it to be amusing for a couple of reasons.

  1. 1.  A Like-page to promote the show was put up voluntarily by Darryl Hutchins II, he seems to have either tried to transfer ownership or deleted it (I can’t be sure at this point) in retaliation to a false claim.
  2. 2.  The false claim is that (I quote) “I deleted the page because Alison Jones misrepresented Concomitant Dissidence as a group of racist.  She knowingly lied about our position.  I will not put up with that. “

This allegation, I’m told, came directly from the 9@9 episode which aired on March 9th.

First, the burden of proof is on the accuser.    Lies?  Slander?   Proofs or GTFO.

If one has, as Darryl states, “Conducted myself honorably“,  I would think that would include exercising a level of self- honesty about the actual reasons for removing a Facebook like page and making  false-accusations.  I don’t care if you lie to me, or lie to your sycophants; everybody lies; however if one were genuinely interested in putting your ideation through trials by fire, then you might start with the testicular fortitude to light the match.  Parading your straw-men on Facebook isn’t really changing much but your status update.   Not to mention, am I somehow difficult to reach with my oh so large Internet foot-print?  I digress…

During my 60 minutes of air time, at no time did I mention Concomitant Dissidence.   My commentary was fairly general in relation to events and people I have observed in Social Media over the last two decades for more than 55 minutes of the show.  In recent years, social platforms such as Facebook appear to be the favored venue for airing grievances  (which appears to be the case here as demonstrated by the screen cap of Darryl’s beef).  Yoo hoo, I’m not on Facebook Darryl.

Second, I would think that it’s more intellectually honest to address a reaction incited in oneself, than it is to attack the provocation for it.  But hey, Hit me with your Best shot!

9@9 - Darryl Hutchins

Readers of my blog interested in examples of NLP/External Considering/Identifying and Fourth Way philosophy (ala G.I.  Gurdjieff) might find this a fascinating study.  Those with eyes to see, can clearly peep what I’m looking at here.

I have taken a few key-phrases I used purposefully to create a perception from the audio clip, to provide contextual examples:

A.  “We’re definitely not talking about a collective.

DH has been recently involved in a group collaboration project called  Concomitant Dissidence; the definition has been provided for blog subscribers (see: What is Concomitant Dissidence?).  Feel free to have a look around and cast your own judgment about the content therein.  What the hell do I know anyway, I’m just a woman…Ooo lala.

Note:  A joining of two terms Concomitant + Dissidence; implies that the group of bloggers happen to share a level of dissent for a variety of topics such as culture, politics, and memetic ideologies.  This appears to be the case with the participants on the blog. Key term in the Q&A: “Kollective.”

B.  “It’s not racism, it’s racialism.”

Anyone familiar with my views on racism and racialism wouldn’t have made such a misstep in interpreting this quote as a form of slander.  In fact, as Darryl correctly identified I was directly quoting him from a previous public statement ( paraphrased).    Information populated by the Nexion, as well as through Darryl’s personal blog (of which I am subscribed).  The Nexion has no control nor autonomy over that information.   The Nexion appears to pride itself in populating information from a variety of sources; not always citing the author so it gives the appearance of original work.  I’m hip to it.  There hasn’t really been a new idea in centuries.  Hey, we work with what we have access to and  Memetics can either be a tool or a vice; in this case: Me thinks he doth protest too much!   [Thank you Mr. Shakespeare for such an eloquent iambic pentameter, don't mind if I do!]

Racism as a control meme has been typically defined as thus:

A belief or doctrine that inherent hierarchical differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race  is superior.

While Racialism is considered a counter-meme:

A belief in the existence and significance of racial differences, but not necessarily that any hierarchy between the races exists. Racialists typically reject claims of racial superiority.

In either case, from my point of view any/all focus on race is a race-ism.  Much like playing a flute would make me a flutist, wielding race no matter the intent or end game is a form of racism.    Mr. Fleming does his fair share of External Considering & Identifying when he goes on to assume that it’s a moral judgment.  My point of view has nothing at all to do with morality, more so the logical fallacy and lack of critical thinking and applied scrutiny.    Case in point, I am not my race, gender, nor the roles a Nomian society would have me fall in line to serve.

Races can be loosely defined as a categorization of humans by specific markers such as culture (i.e. National Location, Language, Religion, Social Interests, Politics, et. al) but most Nomian mindsets would reduce it to abstractions such as Ethnic Heritage, Skin Color, Gender or even obfuscated by ‘genes’.  Race, is just another control-meme; when a person becomes hooked in (or rather plugged into) racial concerns; what follows is a roller-coaster ride of justifications vs. reasoning.  “Why do we require others share our judgement?”  -Emmanuel Kant   Why indeed.

It can’t be wondered why Mr. Hutchins II, would react in this manner from minutia, proverbial mole-hills he has built, into a mountain of woe.  Less than 10 seconds of audio, yet the Power Rating is off the charts for this simple statement (as per my Power Rating mentioned in my article on page 26 in Into the Fire, Issue#2 Honor).

I’d like to re-direct this topic back to Honor for a moment, if I may.  This behavior in conjunction with the words written or spoken, are often in flux.    If I am to take the statement from Ryan Fleming and put it under Ocam’s Razor (“Alison Jones clearly cannot comprehend Aeonics or heretical thinking in that case.  Truth.”) there would be nothing left to consider.  I’m not exactly seeing the Heretics at work here  nor am I observing an Aeonic shift.  In fact, I’d say this is the epitome of Nomian and Mundanity masked as something else.  A guise, a mask, for what is so painfully apparent.    Incidentally, a discussion is in progress of this very subject on 600 Club.  Try as you may, the essence comes through the mask.  I see you under there boys.  Sorry, Nomos Homos. No cookie.

  The 10 Principals of the National Socialist (as published in Hill of the Ravens) was blogged on Interrogistic Methodologies by Darryl Hutchins II.   For what reason, I can only speculate.  Even if Mr. Hutchins took these principals to heart only in-part, he doesn’t appear to be too concerned with his Honor.  Concomitant Dissidence prides itself as an Information Nexion.  In reviewing the information, casting judgments about it, then deciding what to do with this information is an individual choice,  it would seem that the Kollective mindset is that if you don’t accept this information lock, stock and barrel; then you are enemy to the Nexion.    In my decision to obviously laugh at these notions, I have made Darryl upset.  Oh dear.  What ever shall I do?  Are we breaking up again Darry?  I will, with the whole of my being, decide for myself what I think and what I shall do upon those thoughts.  From my own axiomatic expressions:  “To know me, is to know my expressions.” – Sin Jones

Tisk, Tisk…  It seems you don’t know me at all.   Hard to keep up with the Jonses, crawling out chaos and altering your perception.  Oops, I did it again.

In participating in the 9@9 premise:

 
[x]  Analytic Exploration of the Left-hand Path – Check
[x] Flesh out ideas – Check
[x] Capture its essence – Check
[x] Attack its form – Check
 
I have shouldered the blame for disturbing a comfort-zone.    Now I ask you, wouldn’t that make me the Heretic?  
 
 
 
Breaking up is hard to do.  May even cost you a Facebook like page, and the press of 26 subscribers to a WordPress.   Nothing to fret about, when you’re a devil with disposable income.  Cha-ching!
