On February 10, 2020, I was mentioned in an article posted at Coindesk, entitled “Why Cypherpunk Witches Love Bitcoin” in which I was wrongly framed as a “feminist author,” who writes “manifestos.” According to the Collins dictionary online, “A manifesto is a statement published by a person or group of people, especially a political party, or a government, in which they say what their aims and policies are.” In other words, it is a political statement of some kind.
As I state at the beginning of all of my monologues, I am an author of occult books. I write about witchcraft and occultism. I have written some horror fiction in the past, which has been pulled from publication because of some things to do with censorship back in 2012. I have spoken before about the problem of censorship of the horror genre. The books were pulled out of fear that they might pose a threat to my serious, non-fiction work.
I write books on witchcraft and the occult, most of which are practical and one of which, Traditional Witches History of the Occult Banking System, is a book of occult history combined with business and technology, especially written for members of the witchcraft and occult community. I wrote that book, in part, because of my ongoing experiences with censorship and problems with thieving third parties. My motivations are entirely professional and centered on business. I find it absurd to have state that I am not a political activist and I do not write any kind of manifestos, but I feel I must. Members of the materialist atheist community and others who engage in political activism in the name of witches and occultists have put me in a position where I must defend my name and my work from false and potentially inflammatory mischaracterizations.
I have posted one article at the Traditional Witchcraft and Occultism WordPress blog clarifying that witchcraft and occultism are not euphemisms for something political and defending myself from the charge of being a political activist who writes political manifestos, which I regard as a potentially dangerous accusation, especially in the current climate of violent political contention. The article is entitled, “Witchcraft is Not Political Activism, Ritual is Not Performance Art, and ‘Witch’ is Not a Euphemism for ‘Feminist.’” and it was posted on February 12, 2020. As I have stated before in these monologues, traditional witchcraft is apolitical. Likewise, occultism, which is the study and practice of the occult, is also apolitical. They are best described as spiritual practices, which often have much more to do with the metaphysical world than the physical one.
As you are undoubtedly aware, The Satanic Temple is a satirical organization of materialist atheists who engage in obscene performance art for political purposes, while they ridicule occultism and witchcraft. They are political activists. In their attempt to obliterate the history of occultism, they have especially targeted The Church of Satan, but in so doing, they have made a target of all of us, witches, occultists, and pagans alike.
Where the attack on witchcraft, itself is coming from seems less obvious.
In an effort to understand why the word “witch” is now apparently being interpreted as “feminist” and why witchcraft is being interpreted as political activism, I performed a quick web search and discovered a seemingly endless barrage of articles characterizing witches as feminists and witchcraft and occultism as some form of political activism.
Here are some of the headlines:
“You Can’t Separate Witchcraft from Activism,” from a site the name of which contains an obscenity I will not use.
“‘Waking up to our power’: witchcraft gets political,’ at The Guardian.
“Witches Explain How To Take On Political Power With Occult Magic,” from the Huffington Post.
“Witch Activism It’s Happening Now”
“Every Witch is an Activist,” from Patheos, a questionable site that partners with Time Magazine, which is part of the same conglomerate that owns CNN, all of which is owned by members of the Sinister Trinity.
“The Witch Continues to Enchant as a Feminist Symbol,” from The New York Times, an article that politicizes witches and ignores the fact that witches are quite often men and boys.
“This Is How Real-Life Resistance Witches Say They’re Taking Down the Patriarchy: And why one witch believes their hex on Trump worked.” This was posted at the Marie Claire website. Incidentally, there are no such things as “resistance witches” in occultism.
“Each month, thousands of witches cast a spell against Donald Trump: How the witches of the #MagicResistance rise up against the Trump administration,” from Vox.
“Meet The Anti-Fascist Witches Casting Spells To Destroy Trump: Political protest and witchcraft have a long and storied history,” from Vocativ.
It appears these activists are working with their friends at Christian Broadcasting Network News, which is part of Pat Robertson’s 700 Club, which ran an article, “Christians and Jews Combat Witches’ Summer Solstice Satanic Spells on Trump,” posted June 21, 2017.
Finally, a headline at The New York Times, posted Oct 24, 2019, asks, “When Did Everybody Become a Witch?”
The answer is they are not witches. They are imposters.
Traditional witchcraft and occultism are apolitical subjects.
Further, contrary to the journalist’s false accusation of engaging in political activism, I discourage witches and occultists from engaging in political activism for a number of reasons and encourage instead the use of Bitcoin and especially “privacy coins” to undermine the power of our historical enemies. I elaborate on the reasons for this in the book, Traditional Witches History of the Occult Banking System, in which I discuss this in different ways in multiple chapters of the book. This is a book of business, banking, and technology written especially for members of our community and has nothing to do with either feminism or any other political subject. So, to be direct, I am in opposition to political activism and see it as a waste of time. If you want to change every aspect of the current system, which I call the “In God We Trust” system, then use cryptocurrencies for transactions.
To get a sample of what is going on with these impersonators, listen to the Talk Heathens encouraging this chicanery at our expense in a YouTube video, at their channel, “Talk Heathens,” posted January 29, 2020, entitled “Could the Satanic Temple Help Us Get a Nativity Scene Down? | Anthony – TX | Talk Heathen 04.04” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmcCjn2VG_c In this video, they encourage a political activist who calls in to pose as a witch, in particular as a Wiccan, or Satanist.
See a similar article posted at the Traditional Witchcraft and Occultism WordPress blog, entitled “Witchcraft is Not Political Activism, Ritual is Not Performance Art, and ‘Witch’ is Not a Euphemism for ‘Feminist.’”
