Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live."

The intent is,that soon after I were sent to prison,I would be dead. The report of the cause of that death would be a fake; it would be reported as a "natural death,"an "accident," or a homicide by some "lone assassin." Simply,the death, and the official "cover story" would be arranged by a freemasonic network which includes judges and other relevant officials.

I have reason to believe that most of those factions of the Transatlantic liberal establishment which signed on to support, or to consent to the Alexandria frame-up,did not intend to have me killed. The majority of the Anglo-American Liberal Establishment simply did not wish to create the kind of political martyr who might reach out potently from his grave;they preferred that I rot quietly into obscurity. Nonetheless, a powerful faction among them, the Satanists, is obsessed with the prospect of murdering me in prison.

The Establishment's toleration of a large and powerful contingent of Satanists within its own ranks, and toleration of the build-up of a large and growing Satanist mass-movement, too, could prove to be the proximate cause of the death of the Establishment as a whole.

Given the deepening general crisis of civilization as a whole,the spread of Satanism and its acts,threatens now to become the extra factor unleashing virtually uncontrollable evils Of great force of destruction. Given a widspread core of presently organized,devout Satanists,also given the deepening mood of cultural pessimism now being being fed by worsening western appeasement of Moscow,and given the terrible financial crisis on the verge of eruption,we face a monstrous social crisis within society,a crisis tending to bring out either the
best or the very worst potentialities within the population. The presence of a powerful catalytic force of organized Satanism,under these conditions,could unleash from within our nations a beast which becomes uncontrollable.

With those matters in view,this report identifies some of
the most influential Satanist organizations,and highlights some
of the most characteristic inner psycho-dynamics of Satanism

Anglo-American Satanists

The best-organized Satanist forces operating presently
inside the United Statesminclude the following prominent


This is the leading,putatively respectable Britain-based
Satan cult (it worships Lucifer).

The Lucis Trust,which runs the only religious chapel at
the New York United Nations headquarters,,was originaly founded as the ,in
London, in 192*. The Lucis Trust associated with the UNO is the
New York affiliate of the British organization. The name was
changed from ,to ,to make the nature of the organization less conspicuous.

The Lucis Trust's leading sponsors include the following
prominent figures:

Henry Clausen, Supreme Grand Commander of the Supreme Council,33rd Degree,
Southern District Scottish Rite Freemasons
Norman Cousins
John D. Rockefeller IV
The Rockefeller Foundation
The Marshall Field family
Robert McNamara
Thomas Watson (IBM, former US Ambassador to Moscow)
The United Lodge of Theosophists of New York City
U. Alexis Johnson (former?), Undersecretary of State
Rabbi Marc Tannenbaum, American Jewish Commitee

Prominent front-organizations sponsored by the Lucis Trust,
include the following:

The Theosophical Order of Service (founded by Annie Besant in 1908)
The Theosophical Society (founded by Helena P. Blavatsky in 1875)
The United Nations Association
The World Wildlife Fund UK
The Findhorn Foundation
Greenpeace International
Greenpeace USA
Amnesty International
The Nicholas Roerich Society (chief connection to Russian mysticism, spirituality)
The Anthroposophs of Rudolf Steiner
The Rudolf Steiner School
The American Friends Service Committee


This is today's best-known of the hard-core,British-based
Satanist cults. Like the Lucis Trust,the OTO is a direct off-
shoot of the work of Britain's leading twentieth-century Satan-
ist,Theosophy leader Aliester Crowley.

OTO enthusiasts claim this organization is an offshoot of
Templar freemasonry,and hint at very influential protection
from among Templars very high in British freemasonry.


The WICCA cult came to the surface early during the post-war
period,as a legalized association for the promotion of witch-
craft.It is the leading publicly known international assoc-
iation of witches in the world today.

In the United States,WICCA's outstanding sponsor is the
New York Anglican (Episcopal) diocese,under Bishop Paul Moore.
Officially,New York's Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Divine
has promoted the spread of WICCA witchery through itscenter.
The late Gregory Bateson conducted such an
operation out of the Lindisfarne center during the 1970s.

No later than the 1970s,and perhaps still today,the
crypt of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine,is the head-
quarters for solemn ceremonies of the British (Venerable) Order
of Malta. Key figures,such as Gregory Bateson's former
spouse,Dame Margaret Mead,associated with that British ord-
er,have been associated with projects in support of the Satan-
ist "Age of Aquarius" cause.

For obvious reasons,U.S. witches have chosen Salem,Mass-
achusetts,as their national center. One of the most important
operations of these witches is their coordination of the hard
core of U.S. astrology rackets.


The "Age of Aquarius,"or "New Age,"is the generic name
adopted by the modern Satanist movement.

The best-publicized among the founders of the Age of
Aquarius movement include Fyodor Dostoevsky,Friedrich Nietz-
sche,Alex Muenthe (of Capri notoriety),and Aleister Crowley.
Most Aquarians trace the origins of modern Satanism to Nietzsche
and Crowley.

Anti-Christ cultist Nietzsche announced that the twentieth
century would see the end of the Age of Pisces,which Aquarians
associate with the figures of Socrates and Christ;Nietzsche
prophesied that the New Age would be the Age of Aquarius,which
he identified with the Satanic figure Dionysos.Crowley an-
nounced himself publicly a devotee of Nietzsche's New Age cult in
his Vienna Theosophy magazine,,near the beginning
of this century,and indicatedas his preferred choice
of name for Satan.

Among hard-core insiders,the New Age models its dogma
on the Magis' cult of Mithra,as Nietzsche did. The cult
has notable affinities to the Bulgarian-Cathar Bogomil cult
(from which the slang term "buggery" is derived). The New
Age's most celebrated historical figure,its choice for the
original "in- carnation" of the Anti-Christ,is the Roman
Emperor Tiberius who ordered the execution of Christ.

Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering were among the notable
figures who followed this cult.

The best-known coordinating-center for the Age of Aquarius
project in the U.S.A. today is Palo Alto,California's Stanford
Ressearch Institute,whose Willis Harman is the relevant lead-
ing personality. See Harman disciple Marilyn Feruguson's 1980
for a popular exposition of Harman's
views and program for subversion of the United States. Fergu-
son is accurate when she reports that the Fabian Society's H. G.
Wells (World War I boss of British intelligence) is a key figure
of the Aquarian Conspiracy.Also key are Wells' ally,Bert-
rand Russell,and such Russell cronies as Robert M. Hutchins
(Chicago University,Ford Foundation,Fund for the Republic,
Aspen Institute,and theproject).

Both Margaret Mead and her husband Gregory Bateson were
close collaborators of Russell and Hutchins from no later than
1938. The brothers,Aldous (Hollywood) and Julian (UNO) Huxley
were collaborators of H. G. Wells,and were recruited to
Crowley's Satanistcult during the late 1920s.


Since the launching of the Beatles as an international
project,via TV's ,in 1963,"rock" has been
the most influential recruiter to Satanism. Rock was created,
and is still coordinated by Crowley's followers and by the OTO
network,in cooperation with WICCA.It is,not so incident-
ally,also the Satanist's biggest money-maker,and believed to
provide the chief logistical support for deployments and other
activities of the OTO-WICCA efforts world-wide.

There is nothing spontaneous or accidental about "rock."It
is a product of classical studies of the ancient Phrygian terror-
ist cult of Satan-Dionysos,the model for the Roman Bacchic
cults of similar characteristics.The Crowley's control of the
"rock industry" has been documented by a team of Catholic Church
investigators,who have also noted,that in addition to the
Satanist lyrics,Satanist messages embedded sublimally in rock
recordings are a key feature of this subversive operation.

The "rock rythm" itself is copied from the old Dionysian-
Bacchic cults. Even without the drugs and sexual orgies which
are characteristic features of hard-core rock affairs,repeated,
frequent,hours-long exposure to constant repetition of "rock
rythms" produces lasting,drug-like effects on the mind of the
victim. Reducing sexual practices to the level of bestiality,
is a crucial feature of Satanism in all historical periods stud-
ied,from Phrygian Cybele-Dionysos cult-period onward.

From western continental Europe,among the threats to the
U.S. from this quarter,the two leading open centers for hard-
core Satanism today,are Turin,Italy (where actress Elizabeth
Taylor's "Live AIDS" project attempted to sponsor an aborted
Satan-rock festival),and Lausanne,Switzerland.

The Satanist Mind

Satanists already have numerous victims. Most of the
sexual and related atrocities perpetrated upon "disappeared"
infants and other children,are done as part of the rituals
outlined in manuals of Satanist organizations, A leading police
association has received expert estimate,that of all known
murders,one in five is a ritual murder,like the ritual London
assassination of Italy's Roberto Calvi,perpetrated by members
of Satanist cults. The "Son of Sam" murders in New York,and
the Cobb County-based cult operations in the so-called "Atlanta
child-murders,"fit into this pattern.

Satanism is not "just another nutty occult fad."The mind
of the Satanist is pure evil;the Satanist is a former person
who has been transformed into something no longer human.

It begins like drug-addiction;the prospective recruit to
Satanism "gets into something" on a playful impulse,but then
finds himself or herself gripped by compulsions which he or she
can no longer control.Drugs and other special circumstances
may be significant collateral features of the initiation,but
not necesarily.The key is "letting oneself go,"into the
depths of acting-out impulses which combine sexual impulses and
rage as a unity,and expressing this form of "pleasure" in the
form of an act which violates an important precept of one's own

Nietzsche's writings, especially toward the last period of
life preceding his mental breakdown, address these special sorts
of emotions,and refer implicitly to terrible obscene acts as
the prospective fulfilment of such impulses. Nietzsche recog-
nized these impulses as Satanic --dionysiac-- in quality.

Ordinarily we think of the criminal mind as representing a
person whose goals are based on "normal human impulses,"but
whose choice of means is immoral. Doing somethingis
not necessarily ;the useful definition of the ,is the person
inclined to prefer immoral means as
short-cuts to some goal usually not inconsistent with normal
human impulses. In the case of the Satanist, we touch upon
something way beyond such a mere .

Imagine awhich has undergone a curious
transformation. Perhaps,formerly,this fellow was an habit-
ual thief,even of that sort of twisted mind which delighted in
occasions he might have imagined he had pretext to exert the
power of life or death over some chance victim on the scene of
his crime. Yet,up to that point,robbery or kindred results
were always the prompting of his criminal activity.

Now,he has changed. Crime is no longer motivated by the
impulse to employ cruel means for personal gain. Instead,the
pleasure of the sense of power realized in employing viciously
cruel means,becomes an end in itself. This form of criminal
pleasure becomes a blend of rage and sexuality. Jaded appetites
create the mental state in that man,that he must do something
more monstrous than he has done before,to realize the desired
level of orgiastic pleasure from the evil deed.Evil for the
purpose of doing evil,has become for him,a goal in and of
itself. This man has become a beast,a virtual Satanist.

That is the state of mind which Satanism seeks to develop in
its initiates. It might begin with an ordinary sexual act per-
formed under the influence of an ugly state of mind.Soon,
something much more degraded becomes a need for the prospective
initiate's rapidly jaded appetites. In contrast to the healthy
mind,which seeks always to become better in what is being
mastered,for the initiate to Satanism,a sense of need devel-
ops,to seek to muster oneself to do something much worse than
one has ever done before.

Satanic cults organize that degraded process of self-degen-
eration.The potential for endemic incidence of individual
bestiality within society,is transformed into an organized,
institutionalized form of social behavior.

The tradition of the "Black Mass,"points to the mechan-
isms of Satanism as such. Nietzsche's instruction is much to
the point. Perform some really monstrous act of blasphemy,and
associate that blasphemous doing with some sort of degraded,
orgiastic pleasure.

Go back to ancient Mesopotamia,whence Satanism was trans-
mitted to western Europe.

The relevant figure of Satanism is not a male,but a female
figure. The male figure --Satan,Baal,Lucifer,and so on--
is a subordinate figure;the female principle of evil is pre-
dominant.Hence,Satan's mother,the "Whore of Babylon,"
known otherwise as the Chaldean Ishtar,the Caananite Astarte,
Isis,Venus,or the Phrygian Cybele.

The ritual of the priestesses of Ishtar was an obscene
"religious service" which concluded with the priestesses' forn-
icating with the congregation. Hence,"Whore of Babylon," and
the associated position of Ishtar,Athtar,Astarte,Isis,and
Venus as the patron goddess of prostitution.

This satanic cult-practice was introduced to Mesopotamia
from pre-Aryan India. The so-called "Harrappan" culture,
featuring the Earth-Mother and fertility goddessand her
satanic male figure,,established a set of colonies in
the Middle East,The Sumer established as a colony by what the
local semites named "the black-headed peope" (Dravidians),was a
Harrapan colony.There,among th semites, became
known as . In the Harrapan colony of Sheba-Ethiopia,

 became known as (Athtar>. In the Caananite ("Phoe-

nician") offshoot of Harrapan colonizing,she became known as
.The Hellenic cults of Isis and Osiris,were
offshoots of the Harrapan cult of Shakti-Siva,by this route.
When the same cult spread to an Indo-european people,the
Phrygians,Shakti-Siva assumed the Indo-european forms of


variants of the name for Satan-Osiris-Dionysos.

Among the Caananites,for example,Satanism expressed
itself in such forms as the worship of Moloch,with the includ-
ed custom of making a human sacrifice of the first-born of each
marriage.Notably, that Caananite tradition is featured in the
modern Satanists' ritual sexual and homicidal rituals upon in-
fants and children used as human sacrifices.

By combining the means by which men and women are degraded
into potentially satanic forms of beasts,as rituals associated
with Satanism practised as an "anti-religion,"large-scale
Satanic movements are developed through systematic proselytzing.

The result of this initiation,as we have already stressed,
is no human being,but a former human being transformed into
something which is not human.

Modern liberals and others frown on reports of savage witch-
hunts from earlier centuries. Usually,the special British
COINTELPRO operation,run in Salem Massachusetts as a covert
operation against the independence of the Massachusetts Bay
Colony,is commonly referenced. A better comparison is the
proliferating of Satanist movements during the fourteenth
century;these witches were actually sub-human,Satanist
beasts,who represented that sort of mass threat to the populat-
ion of that period. So,the population,as its only defense
against a genuine Satanic force of that sort,hunted them down
and sought to wipe them out. Not for nothing,does the Old
Testament warn,"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live." The
witches of the old Middle East and fourteenth-century Europe were
very real,very evil witches,no longer human,but murderous

Modern Witchcraft

The modern spread of witchcraft in English-speaking nat-
ions,began during the sixteenth century,in the setting of
imported cabalist and rosicrucan cults built up around Oxford and
Cambridge. Francis Bacon and his secretary Thomas Hobbes were
part of this movement. The endemic inculcation in Satanism
which this prompted in seventeenth-century England,exploded
after the accession of King George I,in the form of the Hell-
fire Clubs which proliferated among degenerate English nobility
during the long Liberal prime ministry of Hugh Walpole.

During the Stuart Restoration period,the pro-satanic
rosicrucean and cabalist cultism around the Stuart court siezed
upon the case of Robert Bruce to reorganize the cult in a new

Robert Bruce had been the leader of a group of Satan-wor-
shipping (Baphomet) Templars,who had fled to Scotland,away
from the angered justice of the Papacy and the King of France.
What they brought with them,was the Templars' exploitation of
the Cathar (Bogomil) tradition in the region of Toulouse and
Albi,to build up the syncretic sort of Satanic worhsip the
Templars had acquired in the Middle East. The Papacy had enough
of this,and the King of France acted to shut down Templars by
the means customary in those times. A group of Templars under
Bruce fled to Scotland,and after some initial difficulties,
made themselves the lords of the place.

The character of the Stuart court is illustrated by the
characterization of one Stuart government of that period as the
"Cabal." In his ,Macauley offers an amiable des-
cription of the affair. During this century,when the chest of
Isaac Newton's laboratory papers was opened and examined,the
content of Newton's acutal "scientific work" turned out to be a
selection of lurid and rather insane experimetns in "black
magic."The circles around Francis Bacon and Hobbes were,as
we say today,"a prize collection of real kooks."

So,the Templar mish-mash of Bogomil Gnosticism blended
into Hashishin Satanism,caused Bruce's Templar credentials to
be viewed as suitable myth-building material for the taste of the
Stuart kooks of the period. The Liberal aristocracy of Britain
became a principal concentration of this filthy stuff. When the
Liberals came to full power,under Walpole,this Liberal stuff
came out in such form as the proliferating Hell-Fire Clubs.
That tradition was cultivated under the Second Earl of Shel-
bourne's puppet prime minister,William Pitt the Younger,with
Satanic figures such as the powerful Jeremy Bentham in the fore.

Satanism gained new ground under the protection of Liberal-
ism and Romanticism during the nineteenth century.In England,
the more virulent new forms surfaced around Oxford University's
John Ruksin and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.Out of this came
theosophy,British "guild" socialism,the Fabian Society,Ber-
trand Russell,H. G. Wells,and Aleister Crowley -- Satanists

This spilled over into the United States,notably in the
circles of putative "Great Awakening" evangelist Johnathan Ed-
wards,and his protege,Princeton Hell-Fire Club activist Aaron
Burr. During the late nineteenth century,the sort of spoon-
bending kookery associated with such figures as Oliver Lodge and
A. Conan Doyle spilled generously among the wealthy anglophile
liberals of the United States.

In short, this sort of witchery has been endemic over the
centuries.The difference is,that what was endemic has
become epidemic.

 Is "The End Nigh"?

This writer is not going to indulge in any symbolic reading
of the Apostle John's--the King James' Verion's
. In Christianity, there are only two mysteries,
Christ's birth and Resurrection;on all other points,the New
Testament was written by very courageously level-headed apostles,
who distinguished quite efficiently between the limits of the
reader's developed capacity for understanding and what would be
intelligible were the capacity for understanding greater.They
did not indulge in any sort of occult symbology;everything they
wrote was very straight-forward,and implicitly fully intellig-

That is one of the qualities of the .
Today,there are people who are actually taken in by the sort of
Gnostic swill written and published by the British authors of
. The fact is,the history of the
period of the life of Christ and the Apostles is no terra in-
cognita. The concepts in theare durable ones
for today,but they were written down under known historical
circumstances,and have a very clear sort of durably intellig-
ible meaning when read by serious people.

St. John'spoints to the cults of Mesopotamia
as Satanic,cults then ruling through the Roman Empire of
Mitrha-cultist Tiberius,Nero,and so on. St. John shows the
necessary outcome of the struggle between Christianity and these
Satanic forces. What is occurring world-wide right now,does
happen to coincide with that picture;nonetheless,while this
writer is much better than most living people at ,
he has never taken out a license to practice .
So,nothing said here should be read as implying a definite date
for a Battle of Armageddon.

 It is sufficient to say:we are living in ,which are becoming 

more and more apocalyptic as the
fast-paced current weeks and months come and go.The advice
here is: do not fret about the date of Armageddon. Face the
reality of apocalyptic times,and act accordingly;if we do
that,we are doing the best we are able to accomplish.Leave
the matter of Armageddon to higher authorities than are to be
found upon this planet today.

That said,no one should be altogether surprised is some-
thing looking very much like "the last days" were to appear very
soon.Whether that is the case,or not,should make no dif-
ference to us;we should act in the same manner,whatever the
outcome of this worsening crisis might prove to be. In short,
do not be like the dumb Quaker this writer once was,who blames
God for the state of mankind;the Creator holds each of us re-
sponsible for the condition of mankind,to the extent of the
potential means of each of us to do something to remedy the
present state of affairs.If this should turn out to be "last
days,"do not risk being caught doing less than carrying out to
the limit of your potential,your responsibility for the condit-
ion of mankind as a whole.

The reality we face,is that unless we eradicate the power
of Satanism from our society,this society is not going to sur-
vive. If I am about to be murdered,that is the core of the
message I wish to leave behind. I address that message to some-
thing very precious contained within each of most of you. See
what this Establishment's toleration of Satanism in its own midst
has done to this world,this nation of ours. There can be
nothing more precious to you,not even your mortal life,than
saving mankind from this evil,and freeing society from
overlordship of an Establishment which has set itself up in the
image of pagan gods of Olympus,and permits such evils to be
unleashed upon mankind.

If I go,I can forecast with something near to the power of
prophecy:that which will have destroyed my life shall not long
survive. Either the good people of this world will destroy that
force,or what that force has unleashed upon this world,will
surely destroy the Establishment which has permitted such evils
to be unleashed. Unless the Establishment changes course,and
heeds my warning,those two outcomes are the only choice for all
the nations of this planet, and that a choice whose consequence
will come upon this entire planet during the years just ahead,

 Either way,Satan and his evil mother shall die.
