Fanaticism is a form of paranoia resulting from the incitement of insecurities in the human psyche. It is the way that the power-elite have controlled the masses since time immemorial. It is a natural mechanism of the human psyche to be able to terrify itself and by qualification learn how to terrify others in order to control them through manipulation by fear.
hundred years ago a similar paranoia was instilled into the populace by
the Establishment (the barons and the bishops) who controlled force of
arms, education, hospitals, the money system, and all forms of
Using the power of propaganda and counting on the gullibility of the
masses they injected fears and hate into the minds of the population
towards a scapegoat (the imagined threat of witchcraft) to divert
attention from the fact that, having total control over the destinies of
ordinary people, the Barons and Bishops THEMSELVES were responsible for
the appalling living conditions, poverty and unhappiness of the time.
Today we are not so far removed from that same situation. The new
Barons are those from the Press & the Media. Their control over the
minds of the populace is greater now than at any other time in the
earth's history. Media Communication is the latest power in the history
of suppression and like all suppressive devices it appears to offer that
which it deprives you of; freedom of speech and interchange of
The power of the early Media Moguls has grown in tandem with the
increasing innovation and effect of communication technologies. Under
the guidance and control of those politicians who benefited from their
propaganda machines the Media Barons built an industry of immense wealth
and power and refined their persuasive methods to a fine technological
Today a well-oiled intelligence gathering machine of global
proportions is run by a 'new aristocracy' which has established the
industry as a multi-national manipulator of the minds of ordinary
people. Europeanisation is set to enhance the media's position and
produce an unseen Oligarchy of immense power.
so you say, we are intelligent thinking people who can pierce any
misdirection or propaganda. Only if you see it coming, is our reply.
Successful disinformation is never obvious. You are being manipulated
constantly under the two bogus criteria of Public Interest and
No one ever stops to consider why in the history of the modern media
the Public's Interest ALWAYS co-incides with the best interests of the
media. If the media didn't keep you 'entertained' with peripheral
trivia, what subjects would your mind choose for itself?
Consider why it is that images and stereotypes which appear in
magazine articles and in television programmes exactly co-incide with
the adverts they carry?
Now the tail wag's the dog. The Media has become above the law. Able
to disadvantage candidates and political parties at will, it can and
does alter the political course of history and directly affects all of
our futures. Politicians pander to the media's requirements sickeningly.
In a supposedly democratic system the politic-nicks take more notice of
the views of the media than they do of the electorate!
foolish people fall in with their game. Instead of knocking on the door
of their local MP and telling him what they think, they telephone to
complain on Radio phone-ins where complaints and responses have to be
delivered in 10 seconds, or vent their spleen on Twitter where it is
lost amongst millions.
The politicians are secure. They know that any difficulty or
embarrassment will soon pass and the public's attention will be diverted
to another caller. The politicians don't have to DO anything or solve
any real-life problems. It is simply an opportunity to display their
self-righteousness. It is all bogus but it has replaced genuine
The Media organises, modifies and directs mass political support
usually ( but not necessarily ) through the political bias of its
editorial teams. It does so because it is in the nature of the medium to
exercise and compound its own power in order to perpetuate itself. The
media can hound, victimise, ridicule and invade the private lives of
the greatest in the land with impunity. Authorities set up to police the
media are propaganda machines often manned by Media People who take care not to erode their own power base.
Now that the Media is the first power in the land, politicians see a monster of their own making which they cannot control. Attempts to curb their power simply underline who is boss. When John Major appointed Mellor to look into legislation to limit the Media, the poor 'Minister for Fun' was immediately given 'the treatment'. His family were terrorised and embarrassed and his private indiscretions laid bare in an orgy of self-righteousness over an infidelity which on the Media's scale of newsworthiness was truly insignificant. Journalists who themselves cheat on their wives held Mellor up as unfit for his job because of his own innocent tryst and millions of smug zombiefied readers fell in with their ruse, calling for Mellor's resignation. Nobody ever considered that his activities were actually good qualifications for a Minister for Fun. And the press gambit worked. Purely on the basis of exciting the self-righteous indignation of hypocrites the press made Mellor's situation untenable and he was ousted. This warning shot across the bows of parliament was a taste of what the media would do if other politicians dared to challenge their supremacy and this was made clear in a number of editorials which underlined the point. (Ed: since then of course we have had the toothless Leveson report which unearthed corruption at the heart of the press and demanded new laws to curb it but soon the outraged public forgot about that too, and nothing has been done )
British Media perpetuates the illusions and stereotypes which the
politicians have put into place to control the masses. They SHARE in
them. Their attack on Mellor was a warning to the politicians that
media people weren't controlled by the Cultural Devices which imprint
the rif-raf so if the government upset the media's apple-cart then those
responsible would be exposed for their own personal excesses. The
hypocrisy and unworthiness of the British political system would become
apparent and endanger their nice goings on. (Ed: In more recent times
we have seen this prediction come true many times. The British Media
have hounded politicians in many areas, accusations of 'sleaze' in the
lead up to the 1997 general election and Labour's cynical mis-use of the
media in hyping the Historic Allegations of child-abuse in Westminster in the 2014 general election.)
British Media rules the U.K. because they set the agenda, scope the styles and fashions , establish moral perspectives and misdirect the public's attention away from the real rot. In disseminating information of their own choosing which perpetuates the power-bases of the ruling elite they remain the prime parasite of the system.
Of course you never get to hear of the real evil in the Media because
they don't report it, instead they keep you busy with peripheral trivia
and controversies which hide the true effect. All you hear and see is
how courageous, righteous and good-intentioned the media are. How many
millions of pounds their latest charity project has pulled in. How they
'smashed' a racket and brought criminals to justice. How they ferret
out corruption and how it would flourish if we didn't have the media to
Yet the hypocrisy is daily to be seen in their manipulation of
enmity, discord and corruption within their own ranks. When tycoon
Robert Maxwell fell from grace he was transformed from a media mogul who
had influenced the political direction of the U.K, over many years,
into a 'fat bastard, petty thief and con-man who had victimised
thousands of poor pensioners'.
people who had worked with him for years on the Daily Mirror helping
him to perpetrate his schemes quickly escaped guilt by association by
creating a persona for Maxwell which the British public could easily
hate, and thereby directed the attention of the masses away from the
fact that Maxwell couldn't have achieved what he did if it had not been
for the inherent condonation within the media.
Ask yourself how Maxwell could have for years got away with scams in
an industry which regularly gloats about its ability to ferret out
We are treated to pages of self-congratulatory kitsch about how
newspapers campaign against the exploitation of children. They do not
mention that newspapers are delivered by an army of child slave-workers
in pelting rain or freezing conditions. Children out alone in the dark.
Some of whom will be abducted and harmed by perverts. Children who are
paid a pittance whilst the media executives who earn loadsamoney off
their backs are still in bed sleeping off a bottle of scotch. The
British Newspaper industry has got away with relying on child
slave-labour for years.
With no self-restraint, hardly any legally effective restrictions
and no moral code, the press control the people through the manipulation
of stereotypes and prejudice which endangers all minorities. In an
incestuous process of massaging bigotry and inciting victimisation which
it can then report as 'news' it turns the screws on different cultures
and beliefs in order to increase its influence and its wealth. The Media
pretend to offer balanced reportage and information in order for the
viewer / listener / reader to make up his/her own mind. This is the
sleight of hand of all propaganda.
directing the viewer's attention to a choice between only those
alternatives which THE MEDIA THEMSELVES choose to project, truly
spontaneous alternatives are censored and the media restrict independent
thought; manipulating the minds of people who soon become zombies;
accepting the standards set for them parrot-fashion, because the TIMING
of thought and conclusion is controlled by the Media.
By forming the illusion of a debate the Media SEEM to be offering
choice but the prime feature of ALL true debate and argument is
DIALECTIC. The ability for the viewer/reader to respond on equal terms
at the pace of their own intellect is denied them and they therefore are
lulled into not challenging assumptions and conclusions. In
short the TV and the Media at large, actually construct the character
and morality of their viewers to serve their own purposes and in a most
insidious, continual way thereby control and manipulate and sculpture
our very society itself, creating desires, images and emotions within an
individual on a mass scale.
NOBODY is safe from propaganda if exposed to it. The technology of
broadcasting is a powerful tool which is neither good nor bad but the
people who produce the programmes have faulty and human ambitions and
motives in doing so. They become part of the conspiracy by default.
Those journalists with integrity are broken on the wheel of expediency.
They compromise the truth or fail in their chosen careers. The content
and intent of a programme is subjugated to the wishes and idiosyncrasies
of the Media Barons based on self-interest and the prevailing political
and moral climate.
A handful of powerful people control the financing, resources,
distribution and broadcasting of programmes in a situation where
dictators can stonewall those who buck the system. A subtle form of
slavery occurs where, if the programme makers don't do what is expected
of them by their bosses, their access to that form of creativity is
denied them and they lose an interesting and compelling means of
livelihood with the carrot for 'top' people, of fat salaries and plenty
This results in all programs being corrupted and manipulated into
political or sensationalist vehicles. Programmes which seem
revolutionary and anti-establishment exist solely BECAUSE THEY ARE
. Remember! It is not the weight of information within a TV programme or
newspaper which gives it its integrity , it is the nature of the news
which has been left out.
Throughout history the masses have always been controlled by a
relatively small clique of self-appointed leaders who have snatched
power by the use of an ideological disguise. How well they manipulate
their peoples depends upon their success in keeping them in ignorance
and whether they are able to complicate their lives with peripheral
Examples of these control mechanisms are evident everywhere within
secular society. For example: The law does not exist to provide
justice for the people, but simply to divide communal battles with
authority into individual complaints which can be easily despatched
leaving the power base of the ruling elite intact.
Britain is one of the few countries in the Western World which does not have a bill of rights for its citizens.
are imprinted with the idea that the Magna Carta was a Global watershed
human rights but they are hardly ever shown a translation of it. Is this
because the Magna Carta did not help the plight of ordinary people? It
devolved the right of justice EXCLUSIVELY TO THE BISHOPS AND THE BARONS,
not to ordinary people. Ordinary People had no rights and could be
imprisoned forever or even executed at the whim of the Barons and the
Bishops without trial, before and after the Magna Carta was signed. The
Magna Carta was a watershed in Cultural Supremacism, not justice. (Ed: See extract in pic right)
History shows that unworthy leaders always rely upon ideologies to
manipulate the masses. Whether that is a religious or a political
ideology matters not. Humans are suckers for ideological sales pitch
providing it motivates their basic insecurities. This mechanic is
preyed upon by the Bishops and the Ayatollahs (with tales of purgatory if
one doesn't act, think and behave as they say we should) or by
Politicians (who scare us into obedience by threatening us with an alien
political system which is all bad and which they say will ruin our
well-being and standard of living).
One of the best ideologies for manipulations of this kind has always
been 'Satan'. The ultimate threat. Satan is bigger than any Nuclear
Bomb, more evil than any dictator.
Every major religious orthodoxy but particularly the Christian and
Islamic, has blamed tragic happenings, senseless brutality and
perversions onto some Satan or other, by whatever name. In effect it is
an excuse by 'religious leaders' for the failure of their god in the
face of natural disasters and meaningless tragedies.
Instead of admitting that they were unwise, unprepared or just
downright powerless, they blame it on the spite of a supernatural being
and sacrifice a scapegoat to vent everyone's hate. In the secular world
our political leaders do a similar thing. They blame the situation on
the 'experts' who got it wrong and then sack them. If no other scapegoat
can be found they produce an occultist 'patsy' or a Saddam Hussein
ruling elite share their power with the Media Barons. As they are in
each other's pockets it should
be no surprise to find that in the stereotypes of occultism the
Cultural Supremacists have a ready made 'patsy' for all the ills of
society, TO DIVERT THE PUBLIC'S ATTENTION FROM THE FACT THAT THE
SOCIETY WHICH WE NOW HAVE HAS BEEN AS MUCH SCULPTED AND MOULDED BY THEM
AS MEDIEVAL SOCIETY WAS BY THE BISHOPS and that any failures in it are
down to their decision-making and lack of wisdom.
Many New Agers and Occultists (including myself) have worked hard to
give valuable interviews about the genuine aspects of minority beliefs.
We had not understood that what seemed an obvious battle between
religious viewpoints was in fact a side issue to the much greater game
of Controlling the populace. Occultism is, if you like, the
sacrificial anode of our society and is picked upon and blamed for all
manner of patently ludicrous crimes because Occultists are a disparate
lot and haven't the means to speak up for themselves and put the matter
right. They are perfect victims because they are permanently unpopular
with the rest of the population.
It is well known that, being one of the most prominent
occultists in the U.K., I was used as a scapegoat by the
fundamentalists and the media. My wife and I were victimised by a
totally unjust, concerted, conscious and very intricate conspiracy by a
large group of people on many different levels. It became clear that the
fundamentalists and the media were not pursuing the truth, nor the
facts. These people were simply attempting to terrorise us into giving
up our independence of mind and allow them to reinstate their control
mechanisms in us. They were attempting to force us into adopting set
stereotypes which they could understand and control. We either had to
be Satanists or Crooks, the only other possible stereotype open to us
was one of conversion and penitence for daring to be different. The
ultimate reabsorption into the Status Quo.
We realised that not only did they wish to destroy our spirit but
also the knowledge, hope and alternatives which were embodied within the
Sorcerer's Apprentice bookshop, so that others could not find the
personal doorways to enlightenment that we had discovered. If the
Cultural Supremacists could smash that eternal hope in us, and thereby
display the failure of magical and philosophical alternatives, the
forces of ignorance would have achieved a very great victory indeed.
I began to realise that this was not simply a form of censorship, it
was a method of modifying awareness and perspective through fears which
had been imprinted deep down in our psyches during childhood by
automatic mechanisms which had been reinforced at every level in a
culture whose ruling elite had phased out all alternative options and
spiritual freedoms. Disinformation interwoven into our literature,
history, archaeology, faery tales, poetry, art, architecture resurfaced
in a replay of our conditioning. Even the very language itself was
pejorative, and disabled us from seeking understanding. Think of the
aliteration 'The Wicked Witch' - it is a universally indoctrinated
prejudice and sows the seed of Holy War in the minds of our children. (Ed: Today, [ 2015] I spotted a new childrens' book the other day with that exact title 'The Wicked Witch' )
insidious method of changing of one's loyalties and perspectives began.
First sowing the seeds of doubt. Then activating the imprinting
mechanisms which began to make one's chosen religious alternative appear
an unreasonable and counterfeit superimpositon. An 'unnatural'
perspective which demanded too high a personal price. The brainwashing
has been so successful over the years because it makes use of the
innate apathy of the human mind. Sooner or later, due to exhaustion,
awareness dims and the mind sleeps; but the imprinted insecurities never
sleep. The subconscious works all the time and when consciousness takes
over again, things look less and less good. Your perspective less and
less certain. Your convictions less and less solid.
I realised that this is how these kind of people had always
suppressed alternatives and zombiefied the masses throughout history. I
saw just how malleable and fragile the human mind really is against
their insidious double-think and I saw how many people throughout
history had resisted and posed a threat to the Cultural Supremacists but
were banished or extirpated into silence whilst the rest looked on
powerless, even disinterested because of the continual process of
More importantly I saw the collective strategy and devices which are
used to fool people into not knowing their own minds. Few in history
have lived through such an extensive period of victimisation where the
entire mechanics of Cultural Supremacism were targeted to destroy one's
integrity and beliefs in a multi-faceted attack. Fewer still have been
able to pierce the spell of Cultural Supremacism and come back to
identify the gateways which break the thrall of this ignorance and allow
people their own empowerment.
Esotericists who do not escape the thrall of Cultural Supremacism are
insulated from true magical knowledge and personal empowerment. They
may wear occult paraphernalia and use hermetic dialogue but their
thought processes are firmly fixed in a value system which bars cosmic
consciousness. The most important part is missing. They are not Fey,
because their mind is not free.
The Sub-Culture Alternatives Freedom Foundation grew out of the Sorcerer's Apprentice Fighting Fund when
it became clear that the battle we were fighting for the freedom of
belief for occultism was in fact intimately bound up with the welfare of
all minorities and particularly with the self-determination of
free-thinkers and an ability of all individuals everywhere to identify
and escape from the control mechanisms of Cultural Imprinting.
The S.A.F.F. exists to identify and promote the common-ground between ALL beliefs and has absolutely no partisan/sectarian axe to grind. People who join the S.A.F.F. support the right for all others to adopt whatever belief they wish, however popular or unpopular that may be, providing its doctrine does not demand absolutist / exclusivist adherence and does not harm another. That is, does not involve a doctrine which disallows other beliefs and does not force actions from people against their will. In short, TOLERANCE. This can only be achieved by a process of individual development towards a truly free mental perspective and this is concomitant to an understanding of the devices which are used to control, modify and direct the mentality of the masses. The process is one of un-learning and then re-education based upon common-wisdom and universal human experience free from artificial political and religious ideologies. Ends:
