Satanism; being Satanic; being a Satanist; everyone on the intellectual spectrum has had their hand in one of these titles, and the topic has been discussed, scrutinized, misrepresented, misunderstood, and misused ad nauseum for the better part of the last sixty years or so. These terms have become so incredibly over-saturated that the prospect of a universally accepted definition is impossible to fathom.


Is Satanism open to definition and interpretation by just anyone, are all definitions subjective, will there ever be a “true” Satanism? There are many who would love to answer these questions for you, I’m not one of them. There are Satanic Churches, Temples, Houses, Covens, Blogs, Vlogs, and the ever popular Mom’s basement. I’ve been down many roads on the Left Hand Path, and the only truth I can offer of any substance is, there’s a lot of shit on the pavement; be careful where you walk.


Why bare any title at all; why don’t you just call yourself [insert your name]-ist? What makes Satanism, or being Satanic a more defining term, since it’s a term so loosely defined it could mean anything? Is it a Devil Complex; is it some kind of childish affinity to a fictional character or abstract idea? I could answer those questions; but like all other paradigms, mine is subjective. Allow me instead, to answer these questions with another; why should it matter to you?


What is it you seek, when you type “Satanism” into a search bar? Are you looking for some hidden truth behind pop-culture, are you trying to “sell your soul” for fame and power, or are you the more seasoned type, looking to ridicule the new wave of Satanists, who are little more than Atheists using Satan as a meme? Perhaps you’re looking for like-minded individuals to check for compatibility and form a bond, a friendship, or partnership of some kind. Whatever your reason might be, I personally don’t give a nutsack; please excuse the rhetorical questions.


There are, of course, those who seek to continually redefine Satanism; they’re the types who love to answer questions. Their goals are usually to formulate their own branch philosophy, and additionally, entice others to adhere to their repackaging. Often times, they’ll even replace the term “Satanist” with something else; Luciferian, Setian, etc., in an attempt to separate their “new” perspective from their base understanding of Satanism. If you’re one who enjoys chasing your own tail around and fighting over titles, by all means, take that path.


Disregard my title as a Satanist, disregard whatever denomination you think I might fall under, and I’ll show you an equal regard. There is no, “I” in “Team” and I’m certainly not playing for one. My standards are based in merit, not who wears the shiniest merit badge. My approach to truth is through conflict, not calm, friendly discussion. My morality is not codified by a collective, but a personally defined code of honor, developed over many years of breaking taboos and social norms. Define this approach objectively as you will, I’ve chosen to call it Satanic.
