RAT PACK INSIGHTS

Frank Sinatra’s 1963 interview for Playboy Magazine has been posted and it reveals a thoughtful man, scathingly critical of organized religion, who understood that the carnal motivations of our species are what can often break down ideological barriers.

One can only wonder what fascinating conversations took place between “Ol’ Blue Eyes” and our one time Warlock Sammy Davis, Jr.—both men being kindred realists who lived their lives quite fully, with few regrets.

BREVARD BANS ATHEISTS FROM INVOCATION

Why is there an “invocation” in the first place? Why are our government officials “praying” to anything during our time, paid for by our tax dollars? That’s some unconstitutional horseshit, right there.

Pray on your own time, if you real
ly think prayer guides you. If you’re on my time, your ass better be doing something more akin to law-making than sitting on your knees asking Jeebus if he thinks the intersection of Main & Park needs a flashing red light or just a stop sign.

HPV—Kill It Before It Kills Your Kids!

image

HPV, the human papilloma virus causes cancer—and nearly everyone who has had a sexual encounter in his or her lives has been exposed. 14 million new infections occur every year in the U.S. alone that could cause cancer of the cervix, penis, anus and throat. Except for HIV, HPV is the most fatal STD (sexually transmitted disease). That’s the truth, plain and simple.

But because millions of parents fear it’ll be a gateway for their adolescent children to begin having sex, they’re refusing to have them vaccinated against this dangerously rampant virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in concert with the American Academy of Pediatrics, has recommended three vaccines for adolescents, and the HPV vaccine is currently the least administered.

Why? Because doctors don’t want to talk about sex with young people and parents are petrified that their maturing teens are erotically experimenting. Guess what, head-in-the-sand moms and dads, your offspring ARE at some point exploring their sexuality and that means they could be exposed. The Internet provides curious adolescents with access to myriad information about sexuality and STDs (some of it spurious) even if you don’t. Regardless of whether you think telling them to get vaccinated will green-light their sexual activity, if they’re looking on line for data about sexuality, they’re probably having sex or considering it. Learning the facts about this issue is a responsibility that parents should shoulder so that they can be informed and then can capably offer their teens information that is rational, factual and thus useful towards maintaining their—and their future partners’—health.

Satanists understand the natural instinct to be carnal and would be expected to be immunizing their children and themselves as this is an effective means to prevent certain types of cancer with low risk of serious side effects. We don’t buy into the hysteria about vaccines causing mental retardation—it’s a totally unproven myth fostered by headline-hungry media outlets.

So, since you love your kids and care about their health, get them vaccinated. Being human, as they mature sexual activity will be part of their lives. Ignoring this significant issue ticks off nearly every one of the Nine Satanic Sins. Don’t be fooled by irrational and unsupported anti-vaccination propaganda. And if you want some terrifying evidence of what this virus can do to those infected by it, just visit Google images and enter the keyword “HPV.”

Comedy 3.0

In the USA, there is much brouhaha concerning a federal grant for over $700,000 toward the development of computer software that writes jokes.

The fundamental mechanics of humor are exploited by both pioneering comedians and the hacks who haunt what LaVey called “the dismal world of comedy clubs.” (“‘T’ Ain’t Funny, McGee,” Satan Speaks!)

Yet consistently successful humor is the still-elusive holy grail of artificial intelligence, which grows ever closer to replacing the most productive aspects of your average human.

By automating not only human tasks, but personalities, we can highlight and more freely enjoy the truly unique elements of humanity.

We who already hold ourselves to a high standard embrace and support this continued evolution of artificial human companions.

The "Nocebo Effect" and the "Invisible War"

Trends - Self Doubt - Peer Pressure…our media promotes and cultivates these at every turn. Our founder, Anton Szandor LaVey, coined a term—the “Invisible War”—denoting the stresses contemporary society and “big business” have wrought on our populace meant to keep people behaving as docile consumers. A study has shown that at least 30% of the nation’s populace now wants to buy and eat gluten-free products. When a group of self-professed “gluten-sensitive” people were tested on various diets (the nutritional content of which were not revealed until afterwards), they fully expected to feel worse at the end of the study. And they did, for all of the diets—including those that were fully gluten free. This has been called a “nocebo” effect.

While only an estimated 1% of Americans suffer from celiac disease (an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten), many who likely are not in any way sensitive to gluten have decided to remove it from their diets. Sales of gluten-free products are estimated to hit $15 billion by 2016. There may be other sensible reasons for abstaining from consuming gluten, but one has to wonder how many are just following a trend that is evidently quite lucrative for those offering gluten-free products.

It would appear that the “Invisible War” continues and the herd, as always, consumes as directed by those who understand the gullibility of the human animal.

In our interview, we talked about his latest short term goals, the Jacoby Ash series, specifically “Therianthrope” and “Reverent” which can be presently purchased in Michael K. Silva’s magazine, The Nightmare Engine, volumes 6 and 7. We talked about the changing plot that the reader experiences in the “Phantoms” series and the weird twist that results at the climax.

I spoke with Mathew in regard to his seven short stories that will “make you shit your pants.” These seven short stories are entitled “Pig’s Bride”, “Badass”, “Exchanges”, “Elders”, “Lilith”, “Something in the Woods”, and “Dark Chocolate”. Mathew told me that these stories will first appear in his upcoming Kindle edition e-pub bundle pack which will be available soon.

German publisher EDITION ESOTERICK PUBLISHING has released several new titles.

Lars Peter Kronlob’s Tarot book “Die esoterische Deutung des TAROT” describes a true esoteric system of reading the Tarot cards in order to reveal hidden aspects of one’s personality or unconscious patterns, instead of interpreting the cards as external things, events or people.

In “Apollon und Dionysos” Frank Lerch describes and examines the complementary powers and primal forces, which Nietzsche called the Apollonian and the Dionysian.

“SCHWARZ & MAGISCH. Die ESSAYS” contains 18 outstanding essays from the five issues of German magazine SCHWARZ & MAGISCH, among them a German translation of Stephen Flowers “The Command to Look” refering to the eponymous book by William Mortensen.

Making Love With Living Dolls

As Anton LaVey predicted decades ago, many humans (especially our more lustful Satanic brethren) will be taking artificial companions as lovers.

Well, according to think tank Pew Research Center’s newly released study, “AI, Robotics And The Future Of Jobs,” making love to our “Living Dolls” will happen by 2025.

With the advent of teledonics and haptic technology already here, it’s no surprise that one expert said these new tech sexbots will know our every need. The field has even gotten it’s own moniker—“lovotics.” We like to call it satisfaction of good ol’ fashioned horniness…without the drama.

Modern-Day Mollycoddling, Godless Christians Thought Police, & Occult Knowledge

In the essay “Pervasive Pantywaistism” (The Satanic Scriptures), High Priest Peter H. Gilmore illustrates the Satanic spirit of intellectual rigor and self-assurance in the face of a sick culture that cares more about hurt feelings and keeping the sheep placid. The Satanist is aware that PC bellyaching can come from the godless just as likely as the ecclesiastic. We have an incoming generation drowning in its limp-wristed solipsism whose mantra is “This offends me, therefore it must offend everyone.” 

Satanists cherish the works that inspire us, otherwise, we hit the “close” button and move on. Filtering out material that is useless is now a major task in this age wherein everyone has an opinion and most of those are uninformed and worthless. If a particular string of evidence pulls on the “bleeding hearts,” make note as there may be more there that is currently hidden. Keep an eye out for scientific research that’s deemed “morally uncomfortable” or “of little social value” as therein may lie true “occult” knowledge.
