It is crazy that Satanists proudly boast of individualism then flock into internet forums. For the record I am a member of no Satanic forum, I believe the Satanist must walk the path in their actions as individuals, which includes rejecting membership of forums.
I like to surf the internet to pick up Satanic news, this includes visits to blogs, news sites and of course forums, but I act as the individual without having to be a member of any forum.
Forums by their nature are group-minded flocking machines, they turn individuals into a flock of sheep, if you like it or not. The dynamics of the human brain is to follow the patterns of its environment, the group dynamic together with the brain’s need to fit in acts as a conforming process, so you are back to being a sheep again.
It beats me why an individual-loving Satanist would need to flock into forums. Does the Satanist need personal validation by others to be a Satanist? What is the point of being a Satanist if you need personal validation by others to be one?
The claim that Satanists gather to network is rubbish, this is the path of one, and rarely do these internet forums ever result in people meeting face-to-face in the real world. The Satanic path is the path of one, walked alone, mixing like a sheep in group forums seems counter to the individualist ideal.
If the Satanist wants knowledge, well there are tons of books and resources on the internet to read, including the PDF version of the Satanic Bible, you might need to dig a bit, but vast libraries of Satanic resources are located around the internet. You build your own Satanic path in my opinion, so there is nothing gained adopting someone else’s Satanism.
Lastly, the need for Satanists to express themselves, me included, can be done through the medium of personal blogs, websites and video channels, you have no need to be a member of a group-collective to express yourself on the internet.
This need for forum membership in Satanism is personally quite funny to me.
