“Evidently some people will come to the conclusion that several of the political movements
or parties are performing an indirect magical action with the gesture of salute, and in this
manner supply the general reservoir with more, however small parts of the vital power, by
constant repetition. We shall remember the salute of the German NSDAP, consisting in a
lifting of the hand and certainly representing a certain gesture of power. But if such an
increased collective power reservoir is used for greedy and questionable purposes, this
mentally strained power is turning against the founders because of its polarity, and decay and
destruction will follow, apart from the fact that the curses of the absolutely innocent victims
pining in prisons, sentenced to death or sent to hopeless battles in the field, will invisibly
produce an opposite polarity that will also contribute to the decomposition of the power
The same law works in all the rest of cult practices, no matter whether they happen in
religions, sects or lodges.” Franz Bardon
As I am just reading Franz Bardon, this quote seemed less weird to me than it could to you, in regard to how Bardon chooses his words. He clearly says something here that I am long since convinced of. Lavey’s Satanic Bible has made this insight that had started to develop inside me before crystal clear to me. Acting like the Nazis means demanding to be destroyed. It is especially in original Satanism that this becomes obvious. Immature satanistic dabblers (teenage or not) might be surprised about this.
There is no superman. There are only multiple forces in the world striving for their own values. It’s wise to think what counter reactions are inevitable with what approach before one sets off.
A magician might try whatever he thinks is right. A wise magician will never bet on becoming a tyrant. It would mean he’s begging the whole world for his own destruction.
BTW, This book by Franz Bardon is very good in many other aspects. In the activity stream you can read my comments while I study it.
