Me and my buddy Lucifer

So it's not particularly new news, but the idiotic book by Kupelian, “The Marketing of Evil” (subtitle: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom) is being promoted again in the various insane Christian-right publications… Long story short, a great deal of the book is based on misinterpretations of and misquotes from BME and me, and it's idiotic. From a recent article:

“Highly skilled marketers, playing on our deeply felt national values of fairness, generosity and tolerance, have persuaded us to embrace as enlightened and noble that which all previous generations since Americas founding regarded as grossly self-destructive — in a word, evil.”

I thought about what I should say to the claim that I basically work for the Devil, and am doing my best to subvert the world to “his wishes”. You know what? I don't really care. You know why? Because I do. I do want to do everything I can to reshape the world as Kupelian feels is corrupt, deviant, and evil. In the context of how good and evil are framed by these religious extremists, I'm happy to be firmly on the side of Satan in this debate. It's not a secret at all, and I feel that all good people, independent of faith, should side with the symbolic Satan in this worldview..

Seriously. If you define Satanism as having the right to determine your own fate — which really is what religious extremists consider “evil” when you strip away the moralism — no matter what others may think is appropriate, feel free to it all Satanic. Real Christians know that's a BS accusation anyway.
