Resisting the Rituals

Eros and Jupiter in the Gotthard Tunnel

Alex Tsakiris invited me on to the legendary Skeptiko show, which we actually taped a couple months ago. As it happens, the discussion we had is more relevant today than it was then. It's especially more relevant after the string of very highly charged ritual events we've seen in the past couple of weeks. 

Alex and I discuss a number of topics, including my series on Lucifer's Technologies and Project MKOFTEN, which again I believe are perhaps even more relevant today than they were when they were posted. 

We talk at length about the Satanic Temple and its tireless efforts to gain access to schoolchildren through various programs and publicity stunts. We talk about the objective reality of good and evil in an animistic world. We talk about a lot more besides.

Most importantly, I spell out my philosophy on understanding the Never-Ending Ritualism and its historical context. It's important to have a grasp on the historical context of these symbols and these messages because I believe we are on the cusp of the next phase of the program- in which these increasingly audacious presentations will become more explicit and self-explanatory. 

I believe there will be a very seductive and appealing pitch on the backend of this, something that a great many people will find very hard to resist, especially this historically-illiterate new class of witches and magicians.

In order to offer a counterargument you need to understand the messages being conveyed, their historical contexts and the implications for the future that history teaches us. If you throw words like "Lucifer" or "Illuminati" around, the game will be lost before you even take the field.
