Usenet, twenty years ago, was the harbinger of many things, and one of those things was the type of individual who I described then as “a screeching monkey, swinging back and forth in the newsgroup, shooting agitprop out of its butt.” That has become a staple of “the movement,” that screeching monkey and its rapid fire ass, whatever “the movement” is teaching us on any given day. I know how to grab those monkeys by their metaphorical throats and teach them a lesson that they will never forget. But I restrain myself, most days, because it is by necessity a harsh lesson. I have a conscience, and it restrains me just as it motivates me. Everyone gets to have a conscience, if they want one. Start by not lying to yourself. And do not ever mock the truth.
One of the great transitions towards death in America was when righteousness — alignment with that which is right and avoidance of that which is wrong — was attacked as self-righteousness, which means righteousness based solely in one’s own judgment without reference to that which is objectively right and objectively wrong. It was replaced, actual righteousness, with the true self-righteousness of the Satanist Aleister Crowley’s “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” Likewise Crowley replaced men “made in the image and likeness of God,” with “every man and woman is a star,” transitioning from a profound metaphysical vision to that of an empty metaphor, essentially a return to sun worship, with the narcissistic self as the object of its own worship. And the natural law was gone with it. Hence the savagery of the human sacrifice and sodomy cult and what is already following directly on its heels.
