America began as several nations of diaspora peoples who could be described as more or less Christian. The Puritans in New England were Christian extremists, whereas the Cavaliers were only nominally Christian insofar as Jesus could be anglicized to fit the tastes of English propriety. Almost immediately, this more-or-less Christian project was invaded by occultists preaching continental philosophy. This takeover progressed until triangular hats were replaced by powdered wigs, and America was formally a centralized, unified Enlightenment country circa 1800. The idea of nations and religious liberty gave way to Nation and religious fraternity.
Because the Gnostic ruling class have always loved to quote the Jefferson Bible and cloak themselves in priestly robes, the peasantry of this imperial marketplace hold to the mistaken notion that we are a Christian Nation in spirit and truth. This leads to great confusion, which by appearances suits everyone just fine.
tl;dw- America’s contribution to occult philosophy is the Law of Attraction, a magical idea born in the Hudson Bay region and sold to naive laypeople via Norman Vincent Peale. At this point in my life, I have no reason to suspect this law is incorrect, and every reason to believe it is correct. To give just three examples: 1. The ascendance of Donald Trump, 2. my personal experience of synchronicities, and 3. my gradually increasing understanding of gestalt psychology as an “is-ought” bridge between physics and metaphysics. As a rule, Luciferians are very bright people (if evil) and therefore more likely than average to hold correct opinions.
In brief, the Law of Attraction states that similar spirits prefer each other’s company. For example, people who engage in spiritual divination will tend to contact spirits with personalities similar to their own. This law has huge implications for the structure of reality, and naturally a wide-ranging array of applications. Particularly well-known applications are the will-to-power ethos preferred by gangsters, revolutionaries, and financial elites, and the Power of Positive Thinking preferred by social climbers and neurotics, and the Meme Magic employed by propagandists. The most popular applications are (again, naturally) the most adaptive ones, concerned chiefly with effecting desired outcomes. They are therefore well-described by the following formula:
1. Stoke the desire for X
2. Repeatedly envision X happening (in as much detail as possible)
3. Strive for X in reality
4. Foster irrational confidence in the realization of X, despite setbacks
5. Reality will then self-organize itself to conform to your perceptions, making X happen via unlikely coincidences
That is, rather than the parts of a complex system causing the behavior of the whole (as in classical physics), the gestalt causes the whole to self-organize from the parts.
This formula is the distinctly American monomyth: “that which your mind can conceive, you can achieve”. I call this the “cult of optimism” for short, and I believe it was reintroduced as a necessary component of humanity’s primordial antediluvian religion and the process of stabilized anarchotyranny.
Now we come to the question of what “success” means. Paul Fussell helpfully describes it as upper-middle class, where one’s profession is merely to believe the party line. The functional role of such True Believers is, furthermore, to act as dogmatic thought police without sacrificing the benefits of individual initiative. Colloquially “success” is believed to mean happiness and a comfortable income, and this is what parents will generally tell their children, but one expects they would not approve of a career as a cocaine dealer. This is implicitly understood to be the provenance of the upper class proper.
In fact, we find that happiness proper is easily studied in scientific terms. Happiness is achieved by 1) financial responsibility and an income of at least $50,000, 2) marriage with kids 3) physical fitness and health, 4) religiosity and community involvement, 5) career prestige, and 6) plenty of sleep. Alternatively, you can stick a syringe full of serotonin into your hippocampus and depress the plunger, but again your mom wouldn’t really consider that to be “success”.
None of the things in that list is bad, and I hope everyone reading this acquires all of them. My intention is to make you suspicious of anyone who comes knocking on your door selling happiness, or even giving it away for free! Always be aware that this world belongs to Satan and no gift is ever free.
