"Ryan Fleming, 26, was labelled “boastful and arrogant” by the sentencing judge at Bradford Crown Court yesterday.

He was convicted by a jury after a week long trial of two offences of sexual activity with a child in 2013, and cleared of a further similar charge."

Derp or 3 years was worth the indulgence?

Against my better judgement I posted a blog entry at SIN.  It isn't that I feel guilty for doing so, or ashamed but part of me thinks and knows much of the message I meant to convey will be lost on those more interested on guarding their ego than accepting judgement for lack of character.  


The truth hurts.  But as my mother used to say it will also set you free.  


Growing up as I did, I was always faced with difficult choices which would have had lasting impact.  Many of those around me my age were heavily into drugs, drinking, smoking and getting into trouble.  Satanism was the furthest thing from their minds it was mostly trying to be "cool" and "different".  I don't consider digging through your fathers ashtray for roaches so you can smoke them as cool.


I refused to act like a bottom feeder.  Yes I was poor, yes I was alone most of the time but my own sense of self worth over powered my need to fit in with any one else or their activities which some were of course illegal.  I feared corrupting my own honor more than I feared getting in trouble for those actions.   


"I've had a lifetime to think about much of the wisdom my family shared with me, especially when they were looking for answers as to who ate all the cake.  Ask me no questions I will tell you no lies.  When possible I would not tell a lie even if it meant getting into some kind of trouble, not always because I believe the line my parents fed me more than I feel responsibility to the responsible should hold true.  If you were stupid enough to get caught, you deserve to fend for yourself."


How hard is it to think before we act or say something?  Assuming that if we did think before speaking it shouldn't come as a shock to us when some one calls bullshit.  We shouldn't get defensive, retaliate in such a manner because our ego cannot take the punishment of dealing with what we brought upon ourselves.  


"This should also apply to knowledge, and our own opinions.  If you disagree with a viewpoint someone has made, if it is in fact the truth that alone should stand as the only reason needed for it to remain.  In word or deed.  If you are caught with your pants down, and evidence points to this.... embrace it for being ashamed of what you have done points to a weakness of character.  This is especially true for those who would call themselves Satanist.  If you have made a mistake, and you are called on it....own up to it...make amends if you must and learn from it so that it will never be repeated.  Denying the truth despite all evidence against you, and worse yet attacking those who would point out that flaw marks you as a coward, and a fool."


If the shoe fits....


"Personal Honor, discipline, and tact should always be the tools by which you think of and carry out any action or word which escapes your mouth.   Then there can be no excuses, or reason to retaliate when you wear the truth like armor."


I reserve judgement, just long enough for someone to prove themselves right or wrong.  Perspective can skew results but context should aid in ensuring the actual message wasn't missed or misinterpreted.  


Own up to your mistakes.  Never feel shame for getting caught doing what you chose to do.  If you are called out on it...don't hide because the wrath it will bring will hurt more than facing the truth did in the first place.

If you're a human being, chances are you've done something or participated in something that detriments another human being. It's a fact that people tend to do fucked up and terrible things to each other. It is in our nature.


I, like many people, have done things to other people that benefitted me, yet harmed those people. From my perspective, I did nothing wrong, since it so obviously benefitted me. I'm certain this can be said about anyone, especially in circles where "Might is Right" is parroted ad nauseam. Likewise, I've received similar treatment from other people over the course of my life.


There is nothing 'right' or 'wrong' about this behavior, but to stop there would be to take a superficial look at social dynamics. Indeed, human beings do not live in a vacuum. Everything that a person does has consequences. For me, what this all really boils down to is responsibility for one's actions and honor.


Seeing as human beings are social creatures it's worth pointing out that people naturally form groups of like-minded individuals. Ideally, each individual of the group is capable of helping themselves by helping the group. We can call this rational self-interest. At the same time, stratification will also manifest. This is also another fact of our nature.


Some may argue that stratification allows for a member of the group to compromise another member of the same group.  Of course, the problem with this is it's not necessarily in the rational self-interest of an individual to dissolve tribal cohesion. Indeed, it is quite irresponsible and reflects a lack of honor.


This isn't to say members should hold each other's hands.  The manifestation of stratification in such a context would actually be a social pecking order. To subvert a member of your group in this context would entail taking responsibility for that action rather than slink around like an honor-less coward.  If one is not strong enough move up the chain by their own merit, they simply don't deserve it.In another hypothetical scenario, let's assume a group has encountered an outsider. The outsider claims to resonate with the tribe and wants to participate. However, if the outsider fails to demonstrate the same kind of honor that is required for tribal cohesion, it is wise to dispose of them. In fact, I'd argue that the result should be the same for anyone who demonstrates their mundanity, whether they be an insider or not.


At the end of the day, everyone does things that harms other people for their own benefit. Again, there is nothing 'right' or 'wrong' about it. The difference between those I call my own and those I call mundane is the ability to take responsibility for one's actions. It doesn't matter to me if you call yourself a Satanist, or not. What shows me that someone is a mundane is their inability to own their actions. In my mind, this is especially egregious when one openly purports to be one of my own kind.


In my book, I give people 1 chance to prove they are worth having around. Once you have proven your worthlessness, I will no longer extend honor to you.
