2016 was a challenging year, but it was a year when the Left Hand Path grew in confidence, building a firm foundation for what will be a great year of growth in 2017.
On Islam and Islamic State
2016 was that year when religion swung to the extremes and seemed to infect all corners of this world. The extreme face of Islam via Islamic State was exported by their lone wolves in terroristic outrages around the globe, assisting in part to a swing in many nations to nationalism and the security of their borders against a barbarian enemy that has no love of life. Islamic State is the great disgrace of all of Islam, for most of these one billion Muslims have by their silence and meekness allowed this monster to become their voice and representative, presenting to the world Islam as a barbaric monster.
2016 was a good year for extreme Christianity
Christianity has benefited on the back of the advance of nationalism. The Russian Orthodox church is at the zenith of its influence under Putin, all rival religions including Satanism is under attack and being driven underground in Russia. The extreme elements of Christianity have also come to power with Trump, and their influence will be felt throughout USA in 2017.
Reversals become opportunities for renewal for some LHP groups
Sect of the Horned God had a serious set back during 2016 when an arsonist destroyed their home and business. Quietly rebuilding, 2017 will be a new strong beginning for the Sect.
The Greater Church of Lucifer had a fatal reversal when their founder and primary leader Jacob No, also known as Jacob Mckelvy, was found to be fraudulently using membership money to fund his own lifestyle and business. Mckelvy left GCOL in disarray to become a born-again Christian, and the remaining leaders decided to start again with a new organisation known as the Assembly of Light Bearers. Luciferians in 2017 have the opportunity to join a revitalised Luciferian group in the Assembly of Light Bearers that focuses on personal growth without the taint of religious dogma and fraud that sunk GCOL.
Satanic Temple evolves into a strong adversarial organisation
The growing pains of earlier years have in 2016 given way to a major force for change in Satanic Temple. Probably now the largest Satanist group in the Left Hand Path, the Satanic Temple has been responsible for tens of thousands of individuals self-identifying as Satanists. 2016 has seen the opening of Satanist after-school clubs in the USA and multiple Satanic Temple branches around the world, including in the UK.
The Satanic Temple identifies between the left and the middle of the political spectrum, its main focus is political and social change against fascistic and religious elements that desire to replace diversity with a fixed dogmatic set of ideas. The election of Trump and the religious Christian right in the USA has seen thousands of new members joining Satanic Temple, whose membership is in the tens of thousands. 2017 will become a massive battleground of ideas that will shake and transform the social, religious and political foundations of the USA, and Satanic Temple will be one of those groups on the frontlines of the great battles to come for the soul and destiny of the USA.
Some criticise Satanic Temple for being shallow in its philosophy, for it only has seven simple tenets, but this is a great strength for the group, for it is an activist group, and too much philosophy can be a hinderance to such groups. It is expected that Satanists follow their own philosophy, and join Satanic Temple for the purposes of activism rather than religion.
Other Satanist groups embrace social media
Church of Satan has been noted for answering the challenge of a competitor in the Satanic Temple by vastly improving its social media activity and structures. Likewise the UK-based Church of Rational Satanism replaced mediocre internet sites with a more professional look and activity, though too much marketing of its products has in my opinion an adverse impact upon it. For any Satanist desiring to make an impact on the internet a strategy involving Twitter, Facebook and WordPress seems to be the way to go during 2017.
Order of Nine Angles culled its honor code
The parasitic wart on the backside of Satanism known as the Order of Nine Angles has been in decline for some years, and only now clings on in any meaningful way on places like 600club and a few WordPress blogs. Largely a hocus-pocus jumbled mess of ideas and mumbo-jumbo clutter of ritualist nonsense run by a largely irrelevant idiot called David Myatt and a few dozen sycophants who post under a thousand internet pseudonyms, the ONA argued they are an advanced human species to the rest of humanity, which they only considered worthy of being murdered.
The ONA proudly argued that their honor code differentiated themselves from ordinary murderers, terrorists and criminals such as Islamic State, but complacency, stupidity and laziness by those at the heart of their collective caused them to cull their honor code, specifically on excluding children from their activities. Their ONA writers have forgotten about their honor code on children, and have given their collective the nod to rape and murder children. At least one key ONA member a Ryan Fleming is a UK registered sex offender.
There is war at the heart of the ONA, with some key members calling on the over-ripe banana David Myatt controlling the heart of the ONA to step aside. Other former members of the ONA have put on record they have quit the collective. What little reputation the ONA had as a sinister honor bound collective has largely been consigned to the trash can along with their honor code.
Hampstead Satanic Ritual Abuse hoax in retreat
After two years of struggle with Satan Hunters, those promoting a Satanic Ritual Abuse hoax in the heart of London, the so-called Hampstead SRA hoax, are in retreat with arrests and mental hospital sectionings. 2017 will probably see the end of this hoax, with multiple criminal and civil court proceedings against various Satan Hunters in both the UK and the USA.
Putting my philosophy in writing
My first Satanic goal of 2017 is to put in writing my own philosophy on a separate website to this blog. A slightly different direction of this blog, whilst still retaining comment on international Satanism, is a more philosophical approach. It appears from my blog statistics that my philosophical writings have attracted the greater interest from my readers.
I will be joining the Satanic Temple
The founding of a chapter of the Satanic Temple in London and their enthusiasm to battle Satanic Ritual Abuse hoaxes has been the deciding factor for my decision to manifest my second Satanic goal of 2017 to join Satanic Temple. I am a passionate champion against SRA hoaxes, and for many years I have enjoyed manifesting my Satanic will in activism. Anything that harms children seriously pisses me off, so Satanic Temple is a useful vehicle to fight in various causes that champions the liberties and wellbeing of children. Since I follow my own philosophy the lack of dogma connected to Satanic Temple offers little conflict with my own ideas. The London-based chapter of the Satanic Temple is currently discussing options for a campaign against Satanic Ritual Abuse in early 2017.
I wish all Satanists a successful 2017
Those that embrace what is healthy, positive and empowering follow the true path of Satanism, and I wish you all good health, success and prosperity in the year ahead.
