what’s been marketed as Satanism ain’t nothing i fuck with, and for that matter, neither is what is known as Christianity today with its adherents bought into their own brand of fascist mysticism. without fully realizing that this sort of goosestepping thought to be guided by archangels themselves is yet another tactic to divide and conquer and create tension, young people reject the phantom of this religion in the name of toting something edgier along the lines of Satanism that is certainly not new on the scene as a ruling class marketing and propaganda tool. New Atheism works along similar lines, meant to appeal to disaffected middle class young adults perpetually stuck in adolescence who think the greatest oppression they have ever faced was their parents forcing them to sit through Sunday sermons. and they are correct to some degree — the mind is trapped in a myriad of ways under this fascist regime. people know they are missing a lot, but they are not always sure of what. the gloved hidden hand of the ruling class waves into existence alleged alternate belief systems to ease this internal tension and, again, directs this angst toward other exploited and oppressed individuals with similar class constraints.
Here come old flattop, he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball, he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please
— “Come Together”, John Lennon, released 1969
