The need for approval

attention seeking.jpg

Facebook is a typical example of a society that has become obsessed with seeking validation of others.

356 BCE, Herostratus, a low born individual, burnt down the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus. Herostratus arson was motivated by his desire to be remembered. Despite a law to ban all mention of his name, Herostratus is remembered whereas all those connected to the temple are obscured to memory.

In 2017 the majority of human society are obsessed with celebrity, social media such as Facebook promotes narcissism, an individual feels they are nothing unless others pay them attention. Many such individuals need to shock and be controversial, since only then people take notice of them. How many nobodies have been motivated to use guns in a massacre in order to be remembered like Herostratus? Ironically, the massacres are so common, even these individuals will become forgotten, another news story replaced by another massacre.

The need for the approval, attention and judgement of others creates a society of shallow, weak and needy people who will strive all their waking life for the crumbs of others attention.

One of the noble qualities of those in the Left Hand Path is they are their own master and authority, needing no external master to feel empowered by other’s approval and judgement. It is an unfortunate situation that most people only feel empowered if they are getting attention and approval from others, and will do whatever it takes to win it.

Here I love my obscurity, and care nothing for what others think of me. It is sad how society has become a shadow of needy narcissistic people.

Master or slave to technology?

terminator

Choice, master or slave to technology?

The Satanist is the master of their own life above all external authorities.  The Satanic path is where self is master and never slave, this includes technology.

Everyone thinks they are liberated compared to the past, the truth is technology for most people has made them more the slave.  How many people are slaves to their smartphone and Facebook?

I purchased my smartphone a year ago, within a month I had been subject to a theft of £50 by a third party app called tap4fun that had taken money from my telephone provider without my knowledge and consent.  I lost trust in smartphones after that.  When my contract ends in a year, I will stop using smartphones altogether.

I have two Facebook accounts.  Recently, my business Facebook account started sending spam to all my customers.  What pissed me off was I did not know how that happened, nor did my investigations enlighten me.  I closed down both my Facebook accounts, including my Satanist Facebook account.

As Satanist, if I am going to use any technology, I am the master, if I feel the service or product is forcing me into a slavish position where I am the loser, it is gone.  Technology is complicated, flawed with security issues, and works against the user, as a Satanist I have low tolerance for the shit I have experienced with smartphones and Facebook, and I manifested the black flame of my will to banish them from my life.

I am the only god in my life.

Localism first in Satanism

spiderweb

The future in Satanism and society is local not global.

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.

Satanic culling at the Autumn Equinox

declutter

Decluttering means the Satanist remains the primary authority in their own life rather than their junk.

The Autumn Equinox marked the start of a cycle of decluttering when I eliminate what is unnecessary, dead or toxic to my life.  As a Satanist I set aside four dates in the year to have a good cull of the crap baggage in my life, thus I make way for new opportunities without being held back by junk.

Facebook was one major victim of my decluttering.  I dislike Facebook: its double-standards censoring breast-feeding whilst allowing the torture of animals; the complexity; the narcissism; the drama; the stupidity.  The few individuals I connected to (26 of them) and the groups (4 of these) are all Satanic, but I can connect to all of these by alternative means.  Facebook was obsolete to requirements and it was with no regret that I deactivated my Facebook account, an internet company I despise.

My work with the team at Hoaxtead who fight a SRA hoax in London recently completed with many promoters of the hoax arrested or sectioned in a mental asylum.  There was nothing further of benefit I could offer Hoaxtead, so I unfollowed all the participants (apart from one) on social media.

I stopped following a lot of inactive accounts on Twitter, blocked some bot and Christian accounts that were following, and placed emphasis on only following LHP Twitter accounts.

I fired one of my suppliers for crap service. My garden is the tidiest it has ever been.  I have cut the clothing I own to 50% of what I had, the rest went to charity.

The four dates I use to declutter or cull is the equinoxes and solstices, the end state is I feel empowered and focused less the hassle of junk that would undermine or hold me back.
