The Satanist and personal information

Today, I bring this blog out of hibernation with a post on the Satanist and personal information.

Sect of the Horned God recently had a fire that destroyed their property, and it was my intention to support them by applying for membership of their group.  These Satanists are part of the new wave of modern Satanism who approach the LHP from a rational point of view, and they are grounded people with good business minds.

The initial test of membership of the group was ten questions on my beliefs, a way of filtering out the lazy and stupid.  Answering the questions was fun and useful, and I passed this test.  The next stage I had problems with, there was more questions on my beliefs, which made the process seem onerous, but also so many questions that demanded from me so much personal information.

Now, I like Sect of the Horned God, but the demand for so much personal information from me was asking me to put my total trust in them that this information would not leak or be used against me.  In an age that it seems that security and privacy is treated with contempt, and the news is full of stories of leaks of personal information, the onus is upon the individual to protect themselves rather than rely upon others.

I have been involved in a fight against those who promote a SRA narrative in London for over a year, people who trawl the internet for personal information on their victims so they can harrass, defame and ruin families, businesses, relationships and reputations of their targets.  Such people would love to get hold of all the personal information I was being asked to hand over to Sect of the Horned God, and if they did, I, my business and my family would suffer a living hell.

The agency of ruin or success rests always with the individual, including responsibility for their personal information. I say that the Satanist only shares personal information with those that they know in real life.  I don’t think it necessary or beneficial to anyone for any Satanist group to ask for more than a name, address and an e-mail contact of a member, more than this, the individual puts themselves and their family at great risk.

Sadly, I won’t be able to proceed with membership of the Sect of the Horned God, with every respect to them, the risk to my personal security is too great due to the amount of personal information they are requesting from me.


The Satanist and privacy

Carry out an action only if it benefits the self.  If the individual Satanist’s central goal is manifestation of personal will to be their own god in their own life, does sharing personal details confer a personal benefit?  Unless the individual Satanist seeks to influence opinion or enrich themselves through business, since sharing personal information promotes sincerity and trust, there is no advantage to being transparent with personal information under any other circumstance.

There is little personal benefit from sharing personal information.

The number of Satanists in the world is too small and diluted to offer much personal benefit through sharing personal information with them, and those such as Diane Vera, Lucien Greaves and Zach Black who seek personal benefit, still maintain strict privacy or act under aliases.

The State works to destroy personal reputations and lives

RT yesterday published a report on Western spy agencies recruiting “cyber magicians” whose role includes destroying the reputations, businesses and lives of those considered a threat by the State, that could reasonably include successful Satanists.

Envious and egotistical Satanists can ruin your life

It is an unfortunate trait amongst Satanists to be envious of those amongst us who rise to notable success, for instance Lucien Greaves has attracted considerable hostile envy from many quarters in Satanism, including the Church of Satan which has increasingly become sidelined by the Satanic Temple in the eyes of the media.  Ego-mania also runs rampant amongst Satanists, with too many individuals claiming ownership and authority over Satanism.  Hostile Satanists often attempt to destroy the reputations and lives of fellow Satanists.

Responsibility for privacy starts with the individual

For most Satanists there is no tangible benefit from sharing personal information with others in Satanism, rather it is like offering your hand to a hungry lion to eat.  Either due to ignorance or from personal malicious motive those in authority, including some in Satanism, encourage the notion that there is no privacy, and that the individual should be enthusiastically transparent with their personal information.

Sun Tzu: adopt strategies of secrecy and deception in your online activities

An often recommended book in the Left Hand Path for Satanists to read is the ancient work on war strategy called the “Art of War” by Sun Tzu, which is used by business, politicians and generals.  Two principles that Sun Tzu recommends is secrecy and deception, two strategies that I would encourage individual Satanists to adopt.
