Life is an adventure, if the individual walks the Left Hand Path, more so. This path has many twists and turns, unexpected events manifest, throwing the unwary into chaos.
One challenge this morning has thrown me into chaos, but from it four opportunities emerged which will put me in a better position in the long run. I however don’t feel very jolly about this, I am having to bridge a crisis between now and the long-term opportunities.
In another part of my life a business investor has come on board for a product that has been in limbo for lack of capital investment, but they want the product to go down a path that is not as I had planned. I have decided to let the product run to wherever it will go, using this product as a stepping stone for something else I have planned.
Since so much is going on right now, this blog will be taking a holiday for a month whilst I travel through uncertain terrain in my life, home and business. I am now on a road that is unknown, I do not know where the road will go. Experience has taught me that when the individual hits challenges in their road, as longs as they have acted in thought and deed in a positive and honorable manner, then what is sown comes back as a harvest of beneficial opportunities.
Satan first is mentioned in the Book of Job, used by the Jew to describe an angel of their god who acts in the role of quality controller, testing the people of Israel through adversarial hardships such as famine, disease and invasion.
When the Christian religion came into existence, they used Satan, Satanic, and Satanists to mean anything that was contrary to their religion, thus a Jew, Muslim, Cathar, Pagan or Scientist could be dumped in the same bucket as a follower of Satan. Satanism never existed until Christianity invented it, and there was no movement that identified itself as Satanists until the 1880’s.
From around the 1740’s Satanism became associated with an extreme form of hedonism by wealthy individuals in the Hellfire movement. In the 1880’s Satanism as a movement came to media attention after lurid stories appeared about black masses involving upside-down crosses, stolen consecration wafers, sexual orgies, and reversed versions of the Christian masses in several locations in France.
For about another hundred years Satanism was pursued by small groups of people pursuing a similar form of Satanism as that in France in the 1880’s. In the 1960’s Anton Lavey decided to create an atheistic version of Satanism and defined his interpretation of Satanism in the Satanic Bible and other publications, forming the Church of Satan. Arguments within the Church of Satan saw several further groups emerge such as Temple of Set under Dr Michael Aquino.
The centralistic and militant form of atheism expressed by Church of Satan including Social Darwinism caused Satanists to form alternative versions of Satanism, the most successful being Satanic Temple in 2014.
It has only been since the 1960’s that Satanists have collectively taken ownership of Satanism away from Christianity and Hollywood, forming their own definitions of what it means to be a Satanist, and self-identifying as Satanists. Regardless of if the Satanist follows a spiritual or a rational version of Satanism, all agree that the path embraces the primacy of the will and choice of self over group conformity, and a love of life.
Modern Satanists separate themselves from those that either promote or pursue Christian or Hollywood definitions of Satanism of harming people and animals by referring to them as Reverse Christians. Since the era of Book of Job, the idea of Satan and Satanism has been an evolving process, and it is only in the last 60 years that Satanism has been clearly defined into a positive version contrary to that of Hollywood and Christianity.
There is currently an epic fight going on between Satanists such as Satanic Temple and those such as Christians over the ownership and definitions of what it means to be a Satanist, a battle that is being won thanks to modern Satanists taking an active role in defining their Satanism rather than allowing outsiders to define it for them.
Satanism provides a convenient hook to hang every ignorant negative issue upon when it comes to outsiders, and in the case of Abu-Khadeejah Abdul-Wahid a Muslim leader in the Birmingham area of the UK, it was to compare the actions of the Islamic extremist who attacked innocent people in London recently to Satanism, as if to say my religion is associated to:
““unbelievable” cowardice in targeting innocent men, women and children.”
The attack in London that killed four and injured some fifty others was undertaken by a Muslim, a man who was radicalised by internet propaganda and the views of fellow Muslims. This attack had no connection to the religion of Satanism, nor to any Satanist. The responsibility rests fully and totally upon the heads of Muslims who because they have their heads stuck in the sand do little to counter the radicalisation of their young people.
Two of the leading Satanist groups in the UK quickly responded. The London Chapter of the Satanic Temple said:
“Mr Abdul-Waheed stated that the actions and values of the attacker were nearer to the values of Satanism than to Muslim values. I can’t think of anything further from the truth. And while we recognise the value in underscoring the ideological disparities between the actions of a lone radical and the Muslim world, we would prefer that any comparisons to Satanism be informed by facts.
Much like Islam, Satanism is often on the receiving end of speculation, scapegoating, and ignorance. And like Islam, the religious intolerance and prejudice behind these conspicuous accusations perpetuates fear and facilitates conditions that can threaten the safety and wellbeing of our members, inhibiting our ability to live and practice freely and openly. Far from the pervasive myth that Satanists sacrifice infants, commit incest, and participate in human trafficking The Satanic Temple has a mission that cites empathy, benevolence, and common sense as shared values. Like the Five Pillars of Islam, our members follow Seven Fundamental Tenets that inspire our daily lives with nobility in thought and compassion in practice. It might surprise you to learn that The Satanic Temple is in-fact an unrelenting advocate for the rights of women and children and for protection against domestic violence and institutional abuses.”
The UK-based Church of Rational Satanism gave their own statement:
“We would like to highlight that the actions of this man were in no way in line with any satanic philosophy. As stated above it would be in complete error for myself and us as an organisation to to speak for every Satanist as opinions cannot go further than the individual. What we can do however is demonstrate using the philosophical foundations of our belief structure as to why this statement is in fact untrue.
Satanism is a life loving philosophy that aims for the individual to get the best from life with self preservation and vital existence being the priority. Therefore the complete disregard of the attackers own life this goes against our core belief structure. Satanism is completely based around the individual with our organisation, as least, focusing on the excellence in the self in all aspects of life. Putting focus and energy into ideologies that go against the individual system, through our unique concepts, would simply be counter productive and go against the core values of Satanism. We use Satan as a metaphorical archetype (although we do not limit ourself to one archetypical figure) we also promote personal responsibility for an individuals actions.”
Muslims need to take responsibility for dealing with Islamic extremism
This Satanist has attended several Islamic conferences, and has a reasonable understanding of this religion. It is troubling that a billion Muslims have done little to allow a radical few to become the voice and image of the moderate majority. Until Muslims can take responsibility and the initiative to tackle extremist points of view in their own ranks rather blame other religions for their problems, attacks like in London will continue and increase in number.
The extremist problem in Satanist ranks – Order of Nine Angles
In finishing, this writer would like to highlight a problem within Satanist ranks called the Order of Nine Angles who share and promote similar extremist views to those of the Islamic State. The ONA was founded and is under the leadership of David Myatt, who formerly called himself Abdul-Aziz ibn Myatt and Abdul al-Qari, and encouraged similarly extremist views as is pandered by Islamic extremists. The ONA are deeply embedded into Satanism, and sadly whilst they exist in our ranks, we are open to accusations of promoting similar outrages as has been inflicted upon the innocent by extremist Muslims. Like the Muslims it is down to the majority in Satanism to prevent the small minority (ONA) from being the image and voice of our religion.
One of the positive aspects of fighting the Hampstead Satanic Ritual Abuse Hoax is that all those who promote the hoax provide episodes of entertainment better than anything found on television. The whole army of these hoax promoters fall into the psychopathic, mentally ill and personality defective elements of society, and has provided we who fight them with plenty of opportunity to create satire and funny videos about them.
Since late 2014 the hoax has been an endless soap opera reminiscent of a Mad Hatters Tea Party, and the king Mad Hatter of them all has to be David Shurter, his blog is linked here.
Shurter is a seriously deluded and rabid individual well known to some leading Satanists such as Lucien Greaves and Dr Michael Aquino. Shurter is a major promoter of Satanic Ritual Abuse fictions, accusing his own family of cutting up babies and hiding them in the walls of his home.
In an amusing video Shurter associates himself to a type of Dark Jesus who is the new boss of Hell which he has fashioned for all we Satanists who do not bow down to his will. Shurter claims that Satanists have given him all our magick to make him all-powerful, to the extent that he has defeated all the fallen angels, and he is now best mates with God. Despite being the next anti-christ, and the next big thing since the Dark Lord in the Lord of the Rings, the all-powerful Shurter seems worried about his mortality, since it takes only a vehicle to park outside of his home, or a blog comment on Hoaxtead to send him fleeing behind his sofa in terror. If he was not such a wet blanket the murderous members of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA) would be having orgasms over Shurter as their new leader and Vindex. Move over David Myatt, there is a new ONA leader in town – David Shurter. Heres the video:
There is no escaping it, most citizens are part of a greater entity called the State, subject to the laws of that State, which forms the contract between the citizen and the State. The contract sets out liberties such as the liberty to freedom of speech, contractual duties like the paying of tax, and penalties for breaking a rule of the contract, a fine or a restriction of a liberty such as imprisonment.
The internet is a new medium of communication, a tool that remains at this time lightly burdened by contractual laws defining what the citizen can and cannot do upon it. The citizen has many liberties in how and what they express on the internet, yet these liberties come with personal responsibility. When the few abuse a liberty to harm, lie and steal about or from another citizen, and the many through apathy or active encouragement allow this behaviour to continue and grow, then the liberty becomes restricted or lost.
In my own personal experience, when citizens such as Nathaniel Harris and Kris Costa, writes upon the internet dishonest stories about me, linking me to an innocent man called Julian Vayne, with the knowledge and hope that Order of Nine Angles (ONA) vigilantes might attack Vayne, then it is an abuse of a liberty given to the internet.
When a father (RD) and his two children are pursued by a baying mob of thousands of self-appointed vigilantes desiring their abduction and destruction based upon a false Satanic Ritual Abuse narrative, then a liberty given to the internet is threatened.
When internet companies such as Google profit from linking advertising to content promoting hate, or in the case of the Hampstead SRA hoax pimping a false narrative, the faces and names of abused children, then a liberty of the internet is going to be lost.
When despite dozens of referrals and complaints to an internet company called Patreon about illegal and child abusive content, that clearly breaches its own terms and conditions, and its own moderation systems appear incapable of speedily dealing with it, then the internet suffers a loss of a liberty.
All liberties come with responsibility, or they are restricted and lost. A citizen that loves a liberty, has a responsibility to treat others with the same liberty, and also defend that liberty from being abused. When the State brings about changes to the contract to restrict or remove liberties previously enjoyed by the citizen on the internet, it is no use complaining, the citizen harvests what they sow.
I am pleased that a major promoter of the Hampstead Satanic Ritual Abuse Hoax in London Belinda McKenzie has been arrested. Posting on YouTube yesterday McKenzie said:
According to McKenzie she is on bail until Friday 24 March 2017 and seems to be expecting criminal charges to be raised against her.
The team on the anti-hoax campaign site known as Hoaxtead are pleased that a major fish such as Belinda McKenzie has been arrested known by some as the Teflon Lady because nothing seems to stick to her.
McKenzie is a well known figure on the British conspiracy scene, and has for many years orchestrated or bankrolled many scams and conspiracies from her Highgate residence. McKenzie was associated with a charity scam connected to Iran where millions of pounds vanished, a possible undercover operation for undermining the Iran regime at the time. McKenzie speaks fluent Farsi the language of Iran and has close connections to some who have campaigned for regime change in Iran. Hampstead may be the moment when the untouchable is brought down.
Belinda McKenzie, along with Sabine McNeill, Ella Draper and Abraham Christie were the original four who helped either to design, execute or orchestrate the Hampstead Satanic Ritual Abuse Hoax in 2014 which saw two children tortured, abused, starved, drugged and brainwashed in making fictional allegations against their father, classmates, teachers, coaches, schools, businesses and an entire community in London of ritual abuse, murder, rape, torture, cannibalism, that has slowly evolved into a global conspiracy being linked to all other Satanic Ritual Abuse hoaxes such as Pizzagate.
Those that associate with the Left Hand Path might like to become aware of the Hampstead Satanic Ritual Abuse Hoax as the children at the centre of this hoax have become the banner standard of the global SRA conspiracy movement, and the father of those children (RD) is dishonestly being paraded as the figurehead of hate by that movement. The Hampstead hoax has grown to such an extent as a living urban legend that it will be used as the vehicle to attack anyone associated with the LHP for years to come.
It is great to see that Left Hand Path (LHP) organisations have been moving away from centralist power structures towards localised self-organised branches, those including Satanic Temple, Satanic International Network and Assembly of Light Bearers. Centralist groups such as Church of Satan, controlled by a select few individuals are increasingly an irrelevant relic of the past for the new generations of LHPers that now identify with the LHP.
Society is moving towards a focus on local rather than global
Satanism reflects a paradigm change in society as a whole where people are becoming focussed away from globalist ideas towards localised ones. Strong leaders have emerged such as Putin of Russia and Trump of USA who have stuck two fingers up at globalism, and place their own nations first.
I am hostile to globalism, passionate about Localism
My personal position as a Satanist is open hostility to globalism and a passion for localism. I supported Brexit, the move by UK to leave the European Union. I support the independence movements of the Basques to leave Spain and France, and Scotland to leave the UK.
Globalist organisations like NATO should be abolished
I would like to see international white elephants like the UN, EU, IMF and NATO dissolved, all that are ineffective faces of globalism. The irrational argument of the threat of Russia as the basis for the continued existence of NATO ignores the truth that Russia is a shadow of the beast that was the USSR. The Russian military is creaky, its lead aircraft carrier breaks down, its soldiers inexperienced noobs. A few years ago Russia launched a military adventure into Georgia, and the world learned it “performed poorly during the conflict” due to badly trained soldiers, out of date equipment and inept commanders. The reality is that Russia would struggle to fight a successful war against a small Baltic state, let alone a more sophisticated opponent such as Turkey.
Many local print media are flourishing in their communities
Just as traditional media are dying, so localised print media built around their local community are largely thriving, those such as Welsh language community newspapers. The globalist internet monsters such as Facebook will never offer an effective answer to the needs of the community, and therein they can be destroyed by smaller localised social media platforms.
Hampstead SRA hoax shows why global internet giants will fail
The ugly face of globalism manifests in a Satanic Ritual Abuse hoax where thousands of largely anonymous vigilantes around the world wage relentless war upon a small community in London, a place called Hampstead, which most of these angry keyboard warriors have never visited, but demand their destruction on the basis of a fictional story. The globalist social media giants such as Twitter, Google, Facebook and Indiegogo either ignore or oppose any efforts to protect the little community of Hampstead from years of abuse, harassment and threats. One of the predictable outcomes of Trump is that other nations will put their own interests first, will begin to attack the globalist internet giants such as Facebook as they begin to protect their own communities such as Hampstead, and put localism first.
Julian Vayne contacted me today, he had been approached by a member of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA.)
I put it on record yet again, that I am not Julian Vayne. I post on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and WordPress as James Hind, satanicviews, views_s, with the clear uniform green avatars, none which have any connection to Julian Vayne. I take full ownership of the content I post on those four accounts, and I stand and fall by them.
People can abuse, troll, threaten, complain to the police, whatever, but please address them against me James Hind and not innocent men like Julian Vayne and his family. It is unjust, unfair and dishonorable to target an innocent man and his family in order to get at me, even when I have repeated countless times, I am not Julian Vayne.
The man who has been playing off the ONA against Julian Vayne is a man called Nathaniel Harris, who has been bombarding my blog on many occasions with threats and abuse targetted at Julian Vayne and his family. The only reason that Nathaniel Harris has not been busted for his activity is that Julian Vayne is a nice guy who puts Christians to shame, who is forgiving, not troubled by Nathaniel Harris and feels pity for him. Vayne is not even of my religion, he is the Right Hand Path religion of Thelema.
In addition to Nathaniel Harris trying to link Vayne to me, so have some Satan Hunters (those who promote the Hampstead SRA hoax) including Kris Sue Costa, Angela Power Disney and others. This is a dangerous and stupid game these Satan Hunters are playing, since they are putting an innocent man and his family in danger, and also causing him unnecessary trouble. Nathaniel Harris, Kris Sue Costa and those others, if you have a problem with me, at least have the courage and target me rather than innocent people. Because these actions are exciting the police, there is a realistic chance it will backfire with police going after Harris, ONA or anyone else involved, I would rather not be dragged into that.
Unlike Satan Hunters such as Kris Sue Costa and Nathaniel Harris, the ONA do fact check before they target someone, which is why the strategy of Harris to play off ONA against Vayne has failed.
With regards to the Order of Nine Angles, get over it, I have called upon you to honor your published code of honor with regards to children. Take this as an opportunity to put your house in order, throwing tantrums, making threats against me, or acting upon those threats because I have called you out, is utterly pathetic and sub-human. I am not entering into debate with you, or entertaining your egos.
It appears to be the fashion at the moment that every sensitive snowflake threatens to or runs to the police if I say anything to challenge their illegal and unethical conduct. Go right ahead, but I am sure the police have better things to be doing with their time.

ADDENDUM: Julian Vayne has updated me: (15/03/17)
“The only addendum is that while I like a bit of Thelema it is not my religion (see The Pope and the Prophet) on my blog.”
My Celtic ancestors have a concept called the wasteland, this is an existential state of a land and its people who has become sick, broken and lost. A simple example, the flowers become sick and die because of poisons in the land, soil and air; the bees vanish because there are no flowers; pollination systems break down for lack of bees, no food crops, people grow hungry, then civilisation breaks down as the hungry people fight each other.
The healthy land is symbolised in Celtic coins as a horse or a barley head. Stories such as the Mabinogion contain metaphors of the seasonal changes in the fortunes of the land, such as food and drink becoming invisible, stolen or vanishing, and the actions of a hero to set things right. The people of the ideal land experience strength, fertility and health, but the reverse in the wasteland. Just as hunger is a temporary state in winter, it can become permanent if the land has been injured, turning into the wasteland. In the Celtic stories the land is usually symbolised as a female such as the wife of a king. In the Mabinogian a king uses his wife as a footstool, symbolic that his strength comes from the land. The king was symbolic of the people, and how the king treated the land reflected how the people treated the land. King Arthur loved glory, war and fame, neglected and mistreated the land, it abandoned him in the metaphor of Guinevere, the land immediately turned into the wasteland, Camelot fell, and it required a quest to find the Holy Grail to sort out the mess.
A modern version of the wasteland is the children’s story Neverending Story. The land of Fantasia gradually is being destroyed by the Nothing, there is a wolf-like creature symbolic of the thing causing the Nothing, a young hunter following a quest similar to the Grail Quest comes face-to-face with the wolf, and interesting philosophy is expressed in the encounter:
All the nations of our planet have now fallen to the wasteland, everything is becoming sick, broken and lost. All the social, political, environmental and economic challenges faced by humanity are faces of the wasteland. The metaphorical wolf-like creature behind this wasteland is control, predation and consumerism upon which human society is based.
My personal attention is on the wasteland, and the metaphorical wolf causing it. I am studying my Celtic ancestors, the patterns of nature and the observations of Heraclitus looking for methods to counter the wasteland and the wolf. Fighting the many challenges of the wasteland, such as the Hampstead SRA hoax, is only fighting the symptoms of an underlying disease, and thus the Hampstead SRA hoax campaign is my last campaign of interventions in society.
A successful intervention against the wasteland requires three things: discovering the sleeping potential in a thing; creating a strifeful situation of two opposites at a location to drive the motions and changes; liberating the hidden potential in a thing through an activity. Once these three things are done, over time what is lost, broken and sick is restored to its initial integrity without further interventions. Finding hidden potentials requires a degree of discernment, and hubris blinds in such situations, a reason why most of the knights of King Arthur failed in the Grail Quest. Individuals who have studied the philosophy behind successful magick might see familiar principles in what I have written. The wasteland arises because the potential, the strife between two opposites, the kinetic, has been disrupted in a process or thing causing it to become sick, broken or lost. The harmony requires all three elements in a process or thing to be in play: potential; strife; kinetic.
Everything in nature moves, evolves and changes through the opposition of two or more things, and thus this provides a way of measuring something based upon two opposites, for instance based upon the measure of temperature or activity. The best measures are based upon something that is observable or demonstrated in nature, for instance how chaotic a thing is, rather than a subjective measure that exists only in the human mind such as how good something is.
People generally measure Satanism based upon a moralistic subjective scale of good and bad. In judgement of a rule, the individual measures if the individual is good or bad, for instance a Christian might judge an individual who practices witchcraft as bad because a rule in their holy book the Bible opposes witchcraft. As the philosopher Heraclitus observes, all things in nature is good, but it is only humanity that divides all things up as good and bad. Of course any action that falls outside of nature, such as an individual torturing a kitten for the fun of it, has to be measured in some way, which might be along the lines of teleology, which says if a process is in harmony with its natural purpose, it is good, and since the telos of life excludes torture of animals for the fun of it, this action is bad.
I suggest a better scale to measure those of the Left Hand Path is based upon the opposites of law and chaos. Those that have read the Michael Moorcock books will be familiar with law and chaos alignments. In nature the moon is lawful in that it moves in a predictable fashion, yet an electron is unpredictable making it chaotic. Those that identify to the Left Hand Path are aligned to chaos, those that favor conformist group-minded religions such as the Mormons are lawful. Some have tried to mix objective measures such as chaos-law with moral subjective measures such as good-evil, which is like mixing peas with custard, unworkable.
Those that judge based upon good and bad moral rules experience a challenge with me because I won’t sit easily in any moralistic framework. On the one hand I delight in planting trees, installing nest boxes and feeding the birds; I have stopped the traffic to let hedgehogs safely cross the road, and picked up young birds sitting in the middle of the road to put them safely to the side; yet, I regularly break the law by riding my bike on pavements, through red traffic lights, without lights (people keep nicking my lights) and in places cycling is banned. I will sit neatly in a chaos-law measuring framework in that I am not subject to external rules but my own, I am unpredictable and thrive in an anarchic environment. Whilst people might debate about the creation and execution of something new such as AI, in an unknown situation, I will create and launch it and deal with the consequences afterwards, since I favour experience over theory.
It is a key measure of the nature of the Left Hand Path that those chaos-aligned individuals will follow their own internal rules rather than external authorities, and the lawful individuals such as Mormons will favor external authorities such as their church leaders, church, religious books and god. Anyone can claim to be following the LHP, but they are easily discovered based upon chaos-lawful measures, a LHP individual is always aligned to chaos, following their own rules rather than that of external authorities.
In concluding, I would like to add that there exists a paradox. Nature is the overall external authority, yet I tend to align my choices and actvity with the common patterns of nature, yet I say I favor my own internal rules over external authorities. Nature and self are the same thing, reflections of each other, and all reason arises and ends in nature. Inside, outside, above and below, everything is nature. If the individual chooses to step outside of nature by unnatural action such as torturing a kitten, they have become unreasonable, they are outside of the common patterns of nature, they will get hammered one way or another for going outside of nature, since harming a kitten, harms the self, since all things are connected and reflect each other. As Heraclitus says:
“The sun will not overstep his bounds, for if he does, the Erinyes, helpers of justice, will find him out.”
Those that push their hand into the fire will eventually learn what happens to those that step outside of the common patterns of nature, a reason why the human race is walking the path to extinction.
