Montero and WandaVision: How Satanism Functions
In today’s video I discuss the symbolic coherence in Lil Nas X’s controversial music video titled Montero (Call Me By Your Name) and Marvel Studios’ miniseries WandaVision. These timely productions make use of powerful and coherent symbolic imagery that can help us better understand what Satanism and witchcraft are and exactly how they subvert their narrative source: a broken Christianity.
Satanism as self-worship is the embodiment, the celebration, of the end of Christianity (self-sacrifice in love for God). Satanism is subversive by nature such that many Satanists don’t even believe in Satan – but they don’t have to. Satanism has never been about devil worship, rather it’s about embodying the revolutionary pattern itself, as we can see in Montero, where he seduces, kills and replaces Satan with himself.
In WandaVision we are basically told the story of the Matrix, but this time from the perspective of the Matrix itself as the main character. In her own self-concern the witch wants to prevent “incarnation”, normal relationships between people, so that she can manipulate things to fulfil her own dreams. To do this she gives birth to a “virtual reality”, creating a fantasy world for the sake of being with Vision, the embodiment of artificial intelligence, the “perfect man”. The story is framed for viewers to sympathize not with the many people being tortured under Wanda’s totalitarian system, but with Wanda herself as the exceptional and victimized individual.
These examples give us insight into what the opposite of Christianity is and how Christianity is brought to ruin: the tyranny of the individual in all its idiosyncratic passions.
