Two bored cops stop me at night to search me. I have done nothing wrong, the cops reason for stopping me is legally weak, I refuse to be searched. The cops call for back up, there are now four of them against me. My refusal to be searched leads to me being thrown against a car, injured, and handcuffed. The police search me, and let me go. Despite my Satanic bravado against an expression of tyranny, the tyrant won the battle through might is right.
Might is right is another way of saying that I am right because I am stronger than you. I read every so often a Satanist proclaiming the ideal of might is right, which might work if you have strength on your side, but is this an ideal strategy for the Satanist to pursue?
Just like my story with the cops, the Satanist is always going to be out matched by the majority. There are at best 100,000 Satanists in the world, and if we were to enter into a war with 3 billion Christians-Muslims, we would in a might is right contest get destroyed. The Satanist is at heart an individual, and even if organized into a group, the majority would still be stronger than the Satanist. In addition, Satanism will always be a minority outlook, in part due to genetics and part due to the challenges it can entail on the individual.
In conclusion might is right is an idea that will be of no use to Satanists, since we are out-gunned. There are alternatives to might is right, which I will explore in later blog posts.
