“The devil is an optimist if he thinks he can make people worse than they are.”
―Karl Kraus


Anatole France, the famous French thinker and writer, awarded by Nobel prize in literature in 1921,  once wrote that we have never heard the Devil’s side of the story because God wrote all the books. That is an interesting idea if we keep in mind that people will always see Devil exactly as they have been taught through their own, basic  religious concepts. Those who believe in God will imagine Devil as His biggest enemy and challenger, the beast from the darkness. There are also some of people who don’t find themselves close to any God or any Devil, but consider this would through the contrasts, good and bad, jin and jang. Believers and atheists. Fanatics and agnostics. People and those who aspire to be human, above all. Many of them. Some of them. None of them.


When we elaborate the current year of 2016, we must admit that there are lot of political and social disturbances all over the world. The national and international  security of all of us is questioned not only by terrorists and lonely psychopaths but also by economical killers, cultural toxins and biological invisible enemies. The universe we live in is nothing but small pond full of crocodiles which eat each others with no mercy. Everything is allowed, everyone is available to do good or bad things but still so many choose to do the worst things ever. Then we talk about Devil and accuse Him for our own sins like it is an easier way to admit we have never been able to become saints. At the end of the day, we have should only tried to not be evil.


But, a global ignorance is some kind of bliss. They convince us that we live by trend and we will die believing we followed that trend. The spin doctors and modern Voodoo architects don’t sleep at all. They build our reality and offer us the menu we will accept with no questions. We do not need to be admirers of the conspiracy theories or Armageddon stories but we must analyze the social and political  indicators behind every new movement, ideology or wave. There are no supernatural things about the interests and if Devil can see what we are doing, I am sure even He would be ashamed.

Then, what is  the satanism,how it  is created and why? People are told on daily basis that they are facing with the last days of this world and everything what is happening was predicted long time ago in all holy books. I do not deny the importance of religion regarding these facts but as an intellectual,I am obligated to make surgery and to chop ideology from common sense and to not heal the wound with occultism. That is my job and the job of my readers is to ask themselves what is real in all unreal phenomena we are dealing with.


In the last months, the American and European public is experiencing the incidents with so called creepy or horror clowns. The people dressed like scary creatures are walking around and hurt other people. That is not the scenario of some Hollywood cheap horror movie but the evidence from the police records. The bloody moments are the part of this clown epidemics and it is still a big mystery who or what caused this movement of creepy , evil clowns to hurt innocent young people and sometimes even small children. The researchers of social disorders come out with the different explanations, depending on which side of the ideological wage they stay. Some believe that the clown mania is a result of accumulated frustrations regarding the forced migration and fear from strangers and some claim that mask cover all the worst attributes and anyone can be everyone. Clown masks bring power and protect the identity. Since the Anonymous invented powerful mask, the power  of the masks are only growing along with the theories know and how.

At the same time when horror clowns were understood as the protagonists of the new satanist cult on the rise, there are the information about the dangerous role of the satanist concepts in the western societies.The disturbing fact is that America is especially fighting with the decreasing trend of religious importance. The country which has been known as a free land for spiritual expressions, seems to become one with growing number of those who chose Devil as their soul leader. According to the Pew Research Center, there are the following data which should make us a bit worried:“Religious ‘nones’, a category that includes atheists, agnostics, and the ‘nothing in particular’ group, make up 23 per cent of US adults, up from 16 per cent in 2007.This group is growing as a percentage of the US population. At the same time, they are becoming increasingly secular, Pew reports, ‘a trend that also makes the US public overall less religious,’ according to surveys made as part of the Religious Landscape Study.But there is more to the story. To begin with, this group is not uniformly nonreligious. Most of them say they believe in God, and about a third says religion is at least somewhat important in their lives. Seventy percent of those born between 1990 and 1996 with no religious affiliation say religion is not important in their lives. A similar share also report they seldom or never pray and 42 percent say they do not believe in God, according to the Pew study.Obviously, most of the “nones” do not reject faith in “something”, and this often means that they seek some form of spirituality outside a traditional affiliation. Like Satanists also do.” So, those who are not sure what they believe in still search for something to believe in and that is why many of them go on Satan’s road.


Lesslie Newbigin, the author of the book “The Gospel in a Pluralist Society” actually states that many new religions are made as some kind of resistance to the Christianity and as its contrast. Young people do not want to follow the rules and they would rather break them so  the  satanism, as a set of some kind of freedom from served official religions, is their new underground choice.

That is the main line of difference between cult and occult. While the cult is opened relationship with God and understanding and adoration of religious aspects and points, the occult is always something hidden and secret. The occult is usually always connected with dark and evil. The Satanism has been established as the form of believes in the heroic character of Satan and the ideology denies the official religions and offers its own story. After the Church of Satan was founded in 1966, the movement seems to be more active and consolidated worldwide, attracting the young generations obsessed with power and fed up with empty promises of the society. Anton LaVey, the founder of this occultism, once wrote that satanism is selfish and brutal and that is its main beauty. Satanism offers all what is forbidden and leashes all immoral and egoistic in those who preach its teaching. It is not only about the condemning the Christianity at first place, it is about the proclaiming the self-identity and egoism as the most important levels of deep satanist comprehension. In the societies which  have battles with sexual perversions, orgies, sadistic elements, drugs and crimes, the satanism comes as the best expression of  the structural rebellion. The children and adolescents who are targets of the broken families are one of the first hit by the jaws of Satan occult trend. They are left by everyone everywhere and they need strength and they believe they will find it under the Satan Church. Unfortunately, they are abused and sent to death after they were labeled as useless for the authorities and plans of the dark group:“They are generally from a white, middle to upper-middle class family. In most cases they are bright and do well in school; however, they are often bored and are not challenged to meet their full potential. They tend to have a low self-worth and are unable to distinguish between right and wrong because of their relative ethical system. They often have problems in the home and in relating to other people around them. They use drugs and are sexually promiscuous. It is a rare occasion when these last two elements are not present in the mix.Abuse, both physically and emotionally, is another aspect of this mix. Young satanists are often abused children who know no other way to relate to people. Some are a part of a multi- generational family involved in worshiping Satan as savior.”


I found it interesting to draw a parallel between Jesus Christ and Satan. Jesus Christ is pure emanation of selfless inner beauty and noble soul. He sacrificed himself for people, based on what we can read in holy books. He cant be reached because he is perfect but he loves all his children no matter who are they or what they do. Satan is everything but not perfect, pure emanation of evil and selfish nature which fulfills only deepest needs.While Christ represents what people should tent to become, Satan presents what they really are . Some of them will rather accept the availability of  being Satan’s child than the challenge of imitating Christ’s eternal love.


The tools of satanism could be found in books, music, movies and games. Not every black metal tone is definitely satanist but almost all of them are connected with worshiping of Dark Lord. One of the worst groups in this field is King Diamond. If we mention the movies, we can recall the memories on many Hollywood scary movies with  symbolic of The Ouija Board which almost invites teenagers to turn their faces towards the dark forces. Dark forces aren’t literally dark forces pictured as Tolkin’s The Nazgûl, known as  Ringwraiths but everything which sublimes negative energy and standing. Add to it the abusive spirit of aggressive computer games and it doesn’t surprise the infectious suicidal and homicidal atmosphere in America and Europe in last 20 years.


There is no white or black magic, there is no good or bad wizards. It is all about the box we are in and our own perspective. The Native Americans always warned that each person has two wolves in the soul. Good and bad. The stronger is one which we feed more. That says all we need to know in this world while we comfort ourselves believing in that eternal one. I personally believe we must take responsibility for our lives and the future of our children while in some years from now, it wont matter where is God or Satan when MAN destroyed all.






  1. What a profound article! Thank you!

    After reading your closing argument, I am drawing a strong parallel between your article and the following lyrics from one of my all-time favorite songs ” In the year 2525″ by Evan and Zager:

    ” In the year 7510
    If God’s a-comin’ he ought to make it by then
    Maybe he’ll look around himself and say
    Guess it’s time for the Judgement day

    In the year 8510
    God is gonna shake his mighty head then
    He’ll either say I’m pleased where man has been
    Or tear it down and start again, woah woah ”

    What a profound thinker you are !
