Doesn't sound like a particularly remarkable philosophy at all, if you ask me. Probably fairly mainstream, especially in the most confederate parts, no? Why dress it in satanist garb?

Somehow childish, and dangerous from the spiritual POV. :sage:
For the benefit and ease of all sentient beings. :heart:

LaVey worked extensively in a circus/carnival. That should explain a lot.

So did Valentine Michael Smith, but he came up with something a good deal more impressive than LaVey's non-Satanist Satanism.

Luciferian Satanism is a very interesting take on Genesis. Kind of ties in well with Gnosticism. I believe the Temple of Set are more into this worldview.

Yes, LaVeyan Satanists often like to say "All religions are show business, but Satanism is the only religion that admits it!" lol

Any religious ritual has some performance considerations and is partially a bit of theater.

I remember once seeing a Tibetan lama telling one of his students to perform part of a ritual "with more style" (in a more visually impressive way).

Well, as I said in the other thread, the modern day economic platform of the GOP has more in common with Satanist teaching than it does with Christian teaching. So that sense, yes, I think there are aspects of Satanism that are quite mainstream in the United States!
