A Satanic view on heroes, injustice and victims

One of the delights of Satanism is that the individual has the mandate to make choices and actions that others disapprove of.  If I want to indulge in eating a chocolate cake, or turn down an invite to a boring social event, or ride on my bike illegally without lights, I do so, because as a Satanist, one of the things Satanists do is break the rules, another way of describing being evil.  If good and evil is a subjective judgement based upon rules that are broken: good if you keep the rule, evil if you break the rule; you might see the benefits of Satanism as following the evil path.

Today, I saved a bird that the cat brought in.  I chased the cat away, I opened a window so the bird could fly free.  Was I a hero? No, I did not want a noisy mess in the house as the cat played with its new toy.  Was I angry at some injustice inflicted by cat on bird? No, cats hunt birds, its nature.  Did I have empathic concern for the trauma or possible injury to the bird? No, this is brutal nature, the bird was lucky to live.

In my e-mail, an invite to sign a petition about injustice to an autistic kid, who reacted badly to hassle by a police officer who was patrolling an US school.  My opinion, the parents should have made sure the autistic was in a different environment suitable to their needs than a public school, so bad it needs police officers to keep law and order in the classroom.

In Western modern society, everyone is a victim, everyone else is to blame for an injustice.  There is an obsession that Jesus, a superhero, a heroic knight, will come along to save the victim from their injustice, to punish the tyrant, and set the world to rights.  There are these so-called heroes in society, the pillars of the community, with a long list of good deeds, charity and awards after their name; many later revealed to be rapists of children, fraudsters of charities and little old ladies, wife beaters, and other revelations showing a less heroic side to their natures.  So many of these so-called heroes motivated by a need for approval, hiding low self-esteem and an infantile disposition.

In nature, everything seems to be fighting, eating and stealing from each other.  Everything in nature would gain a criminal record that would make the Mafia look good in comparison.  The only hero in nature is the survivor.  There are no champions in nature, there are only winners and losers.  Outside of humanity, all living things are playing to win the game of life, none play the victim.  There is no such thing as injustice in nature, everything plays the game of life to live, grow and reproduce.

In Satanism, there are no victims, and there is no injustice.  The Satanist plays the cards in life they are given, trading those cards intelligently for better cards.  The Satanist plays to win, they move into positions where they benefit, and where they are not in the position of the loser.  The Satanist recognizes that life is a crooked path with its challenges and successes.  The Satanist places responsibility for their choices, deeds and fate in their own hands; they accept that if they fall or rise in the game of life, they did so because of their own design.  The Satanists does not blame others for their fate, because they have as a Satanist chosen the path of individual responsibility and empowerment, where they harvest the benefit or harm of their own choices and deeds.  The Satanist has no need to play the hero, they do what they do for their own benefit, and they have no need for the approval of others.  The Satanist acts intelligently, and views the adverse events in their lives as opportunities to advance in wisdom; the Satanist rejects the concept of injustice, because they know how to play external situations to their own advantage.

There are no Satanic victims

In my post about three Satanic questions I said the individual Satanist is the god in their own lives, they manifest their will like a painter painting the life they desire on the blank canvas of the world.  In this context there are no Satanic victims.

If the individual Satanist is the god over their own lives, and manifest their will to become whatever they desire in their lives, then they are responsible for whatever happens in their life.  Victimhood is a Christian trait, and there are too many Satanists playing their victim card showing that they have yet to put aside their Christian baggage.

As the god in my own life I have cleaned out the people, beliefs and other baggage that work against me, replaced with people and things that reflect the life I wish to have.  I refuse to compromise, I am the ultimate authority in my life, and woe anyone who seeks to challenge that.

Hate your job? Get a new one, or better go self-employed.  Hate Facebook? Leave Facebook.  Hate your weight? Go on a diet.  The moment the individual Satanist plays the victim card, they give their personal power and authority over their lives to someone else.
