Even before my friend Col. Fletcher Prouty ("X" in Stone's JFK) told me about the assassination, I had seen the Zapruder flm, saw Jack the K shot from the front, and dismissed the lone-Oswald story. While sitting in a dentist's chair getting my teeth whitened on 9/11, I saw on TV the two towers drop instantly, neatly, and simultaneously into their footprints, followed by Building 7 just for the hell of it, and realized demolition. The bin Laden tapes/videos are knee-slappers whose only fault is that the faking should have been done much better, and "killing, then disappearing his body" [instead of bringing him back alive for interrogation & trial] is yet another hoot. Yet people swallow all this easily and automatically, with bell-ringing salivation that would make Orwell shrug his shoulders.
It would take too long to go into all the PSYOP principles here, but in something as simple as stage magic this phenomenon can be summed up as "expectation" (what the audience is predisposed to see) and "misdirection". In Black Magic this of course applies to LBM in a variety of contexts, motives, skills, and ethics.
"All of the above" was as familiar, and habitual, to Anton LaVey as an old pair of Levis, and [as glaring from the Satanic Bible] he was particularly amazed and contemptuous at the power and use of conventional religions in this regard. Many critics dismiss him as a huckster and con-artist, but that was only "outside the sanitarium of Herr Dr. Andelsprutz", where the roobs were begging for it. Within the Church he expected clear eyes and brains in members, and demanded it of the Priesthood.
The very term "conspiracy theory" is PSYOP/SM/LBM of the most basic kind, in that its mere mention slaps a prejudgment on anything that follows. There are, of course, a great many such knee-jerk labels, from "communist" to "antisemite".
If you are participating in the 600C, you presumably are interested in being a Satanist, and the very beginning of that curriculum is to remove the ring from your nose so that you cannot be led around by it any longer. The sooner you develop the ability to look at everything around you dispassionately and sensibly, the more you will be able to identify and use the tools of control.
One of our bright Warlocks in the early 1970s was Peter McAlpine, who wrote a very concise and coherent primer which Anton admired and recommended, The Occult Technology of Power. For years it was almost impossible to find copies. Now, happily, it is available in its entirety on the Internet. Don't even think of stumbling around in this thread until you have assimilated it.
