Since its original publication in 1896, the influence of Might is Right has been found in curious places, from syndicalist broadsides of the IWW to the canonical texts of the Church of Satan, but perhaps the most surprising historical example of literary “Redbeardiana” traces to the puritanical paraphrasis of a largely forgotten American writer named Julia “Bernie” Babcock. Following the death of her husband in 1897, the 29-year-old Babcock turned to writing as a means of earning income for her large family. She found some early success and her work was championed by one of the oldest (still active) political parties in […]

Benjamin DeCasseres on the Strict Taxation of All Churches (1933) The archivists at the Union of Egoists have unearthed some occult wisdom from Benjamin DeCasseres, also known as the “Imp of 5th Avenue”. Originally published in The Clarion, DeCasseres attacks both the church and state, establishing a bombastic precursor to LaVey’s second point of his Pentagonal Revision program. In her old withered bosom the Church nurses one dear thought—the hope of some day, when we are all quite down and out, reviving the glories of her youth, of again making the State her pimp. And what a pimp this Sugar-Daddy would be if she […]
