  1. He was someone with some interesting ideas and a very questionable character (he embellished, if not outright lied about, a lot of details of his life) though I can’t say I agree with all of it, and didn’t even back when I flirted with Satanism.

  2. He was a nice, reasonably enlightened guy, who had interesting spiritual and philosophic ideals.
    I’m not a LaVeyan Satanist, though I’ve taken a couple of his commandments as good guidelines for my life:
    “When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him ”
    “When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there”
    would be nice examples.

  3. I’m not a Satanist but I find his work interesting, I have studied it extensively. His definition of Indulgence instead of Abstinence was too undefined, it threw his whole system off, made it practically inapplicable. He should have used Indulgence instead of Fear*. By using the word “abstinence” Satanists confuse it with the self restrictive qualities of “self-disciple”, the ability to choose and set your own self limitations, whatever that might be. Disciplining yourself and being in control of yourself instead of others doing it for you is very Satanic. Due to misusing the word abstinence Satanists tend to have poor money management skills, life skills, and poor health. Also his concept of herd mentality was biased, he should have instead spoke about the imaginary walls that mainstream religions and cultures teach you to build inside your own mind, which limit you, and the importance of stepping outside that comfort zone of self-limiting beliefs which were made and spread by nothing more than absolute idiots. Herd mentality is also a term confused by Satanists with the ability to perform functional operational management, which is very Satanic, its the ability to use herd mentality to your advantage. He also stated certain restrictions as prohibiting drug use which didn’t sound Satanic, Satanic is having the ability to choose for yourself what is best for you whatever that may be. His style of Satanism is fun for a person who is younger, possibly in their early 20’s, but when a person gets older much more is needed, his writings are actually nothing more than a scratch on the surface of the expansive works of Aleister Crowley, which goes into depth on the actual application of Magick.

  4. Met him and spent some time with him in 1992. He was warm, funny, mischevious, and deeply intelligent. He had a sparkle in his eyes, and a real sense of wonder.
    He changed my life.
