I found this on the web, and it really interested me. The part about: "You are stabbing wildly in the dark, to arrange your life in reaction
to a value system you know to be wrong"
That pretty much describes my life for the past few years.
Painted in the broadest strokes,
you will find in these works a set of replacement values
for nearly all the common social values.
Here you don't get what you pay for,
but you get what you don't pay for.
Money is free, but love is costly.
Here the cops don't win, because they're not the good guys.
Get used to it, because these ideas will be coming at you more and more.
Just don't fall into the easy trap of thinking in terms of opposites.
That is an error.
(In the grammar of these pages, "error" is the strongest perjorative.
Its negative connotation is much stronger than the word "evil",
for evil can be confronted and vanquished, but error takes hard work to repair.)
You can easily, but incorrectly, decide that since everything you were taught is wrong,
then its opposite must be the truth.
Yes, everything you were taught is wrong, that is an accurate observation.
However, all the opposites are not true.
Simple inversion of all societal values will not give you an accurate world view.
This describes the left-hand path of Satanism,
which, excuse me, is pretty fucking stupid.
The "transvaluation of all values" (cf. Nietzche) needs to be done more carefully than that.
Regard, since you have found the value structure of society to be absolutely incorrect,
it must therefore be based on inaccurate analysis.
Blindly picking a simple variant of the incorrect value structure,
a derivative such as its inverse, does not make its analysis any the more accurate.
You are stabbing wildly in the dark, to arrange your life in reaction
to a value system you know to be wrong.
Considering the matter statistically, you are likely to make just about the same number
of incorrect choices as are made by the faulty value system you choose to invert.
What really needs to be done is to wipe the slate clean and make a fresh start.
Given that the value system now governing society is severely in error,
to a degree which is life-threatening,
presenting the clear and present danger of extinction,
the thing to do is to totally replace it from its foundation.
Evidence shows its very axioms are wrong,
the most basic assumptions it makes about human life.
The analysis which lies at the core of morality must be redone.
That alone will give the possibility of a more correct world view.
This is why Paganism makes sense and Satanism doesn't,
why Anarchism makes sense and Communism doesn't.
The word "radical" means from the roots.
While the Satanists are messing around with the Communists out in the branches,
they can't see the forest for the trees.
You will find the anarchist pagans at the base of the trunk, meet the druid Merlin.
Some call us radical.
We know what's up.
