Ayn Rand said on charity:
“My views on charity are very simple. I do not consider it a major virtue and, above all, I do not consider it a moral duty. There is nothing wrong in helping other people, if and when they are worthy of the help and you can afford to help them. I regard charity as a marginal issue. What I am fighting is the idea that charity is a moral duty and a primary virtue.”
Charity is a means to an end
It is my opinion that there is nothing wrong with charity, but as far as the individual Satanist is concerned, nothing is done unless it benefits the individual Satanist. In my view all things start and end in the self, in manifesting the personal will to be their own god in their own lives the Satanist acts in ways that advances their personal goals.
There is often a hidden agenda behind a charitable act
Often I see people with an impressive record of charity convicted of some of the worst crimes: Jerry Sandusky (USA) who shocked everyone when convicted of raping boys over a 15-year-period; Jimmy Saville (UK) a household name known for his charity work over many decades, who it was discovered after his death had used his fame to sexually abuse hundreds of victims.
In my view charity is a means to an end for most people, not just Satanists. The child rapist uses charity as a suitable cover for their violation of children, a strategy until the modern era which worked well for pillars of the community such as Sandusky and Saville, since in the past society preferred to believe a man of good reputation over the claims of a child. I look for the hidden agenda when I encounter people involved in charity, I can guarantee that if there is no discernible personal benefit from a charitable act, something sordid is going on in the background with regards to charitable do-gooders.
Charity used intelligently increases personal wealth and power
Charity is a good strategy to achieve personal ends when used intelligently, for instance people in business can use charity as a means to gain honorary awards such as knighthoods in Britain, or a cushy diplomatic post in the USA, all which boosts status and thus the opportunity to harvest power and wealth. On a more mundane level I eliminate junk that is taking up room in my home by giving it to charity.
Charity is a retarded strategy doomed to fail for most Satanic groups
It is bizarre to me when I see Satanic groups claiming to be charitable. I see the relevancy when the Satanic Temple proposed a social enterprise to clean up litter from a public highway, a project that they knew would fail, but with the hidden agenda to attract publicity and build a media presence for their political activism. But when I see Satanic groups such as the Church of Malphas and the Church of Leviathan in a contest to see who could be the most charitable I am unable to see the benefit, as it happens I discovered that the Church of Malphas had been making false charity claims in at least one case, and no doubt if I dug further I would find other examples. Most charities won’t want to be seen associated with Satanic groups, for this would be bad for business. There is no discernible benefit for Satanic groups to waste their resources in public campaigns of charitable works, most Satanists regard such activity as retarded, and the mass of humanity will never see Satanic groups in a positive light regardless of what they do.
