Individual or slave, no middle ground

Some Satanists argue that they can have the best of both worlds, as an individual and a group-slave.  There is no middle ground between liberty of individuality or slavery of group-think.  The individual must choose between individuality or group-minded slavery, sitting on the fence pretending to be both individual and group-slave is a delusion.

I have seen some weird logic going on in some Satanic forums where one person claims another is not a member of their exclusive group because they do not in their subjective opinion conform to an unwritten code, the argument being that if everyone pretends that a code is not written, then it cannot be considered group-minded slavery, and if one self-proclaimed authority passes judgement that a code is broken and therefore the target of their criticism is not one of them, then this is not group-minded mentality either.

In individual Satanism there are no external codes, judges or groups holding the individual to ransom, the individual is god in their own life.

  1. I think they flirt with setting themselves free, but they just aren’t ready to go it alone yet. It will happen when they realize conforming to a group is retarding their growth. It’s just another stage we must all go through, in my opinion.
