Satanism & Gender: One METHA Nonsense After the Next.

You don’t become something merely by declaring it.

I have gathered some intelligence on a few imports into Ghana that are now slowly—and let me assure you—surely creeping into the Accra-English Vocabulary. “Gender Politics and Identity” is one of them. And let me assure you, one more time, even putting reality aside, there is absolutely nothing logical about it.

The Mis-Educated Than His Ancestors, the Metha, who live predominantly in Accra, have taken it to heart that whatever ideas descend from the west, and if it is in English specifically, that it has got to be ordained by Heaven. By Heaven, the Metha are also by definition predominantly Christian. Now, this last characteristic of the Metha is confusing especially when one comes to the understanding that the Metha’s superiors in Heaven have long abandoned the Christ.

Western liberals who espouse such ideas as New-Age Gender & Sex are now by definition, non-Christian. In fact, almost all of them are non-Religious. That is, they do not follow a traditional religious institution like Christianity, Vodun, or Islam. I guess another way to put this is that western liberals, which are the progenitors of these weird new-age ideas, are by definition, non-religious. They do not subscribe to the dictates of a God, and although some may claim some adherence to some “spirituality” here and over there, neoliberals mainly dabble, I assure you, in the worship of themselves. That is—just one more time—they make up their beliefs as they go. In a sense, their spirituality is like the weather—it is as unpredictable as the next forecast.

Yet, they can be expected to understand the supreme entirety of gender and sex to the extent that traditional societies that actually predate them cannot comprehend them. And for this matter, the non-religious neoliberals of the west have forwarded their ideas down the worm-hole of colonial inspiration and have managed to convince the Metha in Ghana, Accra to be precise, that gender and sex are identities of personal proclamation and declaration. And when you question the dictate, only one thing is bound to happen to you—they proceed to throw you to their wolves, who snarl at you at every chance with blood-thirsty teeth.

Still, such ideas, no matter how weird, must be put to the test just as the Metha and their supreme warriors of the west, the neoliberals, like to put everything traditional and indigenous to the test. The test here is simply the one of Primitivism: You don’t become something merely by declaring it. For instance, a child does not become an adult simply by declaring that it is an adult. A Neanderthal does not become a Human Being simply by declaring that it is human. A hen that hatches her eggs inside an oven does not put out biscuits, but chickens still, no matter how much other hens may cackle for a taste of biscuits! Water does not become wine simply by decree. Perhaps through magic, but certainly not through matters of the real world—biology and physics!

Or, have we missed some world event in Ntoaboma? Has the world simply become so magical that water is now wine, that sand is gari, and goat feces are now bowls of beans? I have attended many magical ceremonies of many Christian Pastors in the past, surely I have been told that some miracles have happened there, but none under my own eyes to report about. Has the world become so magical that the neoliberals now believe in Heaven, and the Metha are now a group of Muslim Priests? How else can we explain away a non-religious group of people with the fervent belief in such magical matters?

One thing is likely: the neoliberals, with their Metha catamites, in making up their beliefs as they go like the weather, have chanced upon the ultimate religion they can actually be expected to practice. A kind of religion in which they worship themselves, in which they—the liberals—are their own Gods. Some kind of Satanism.

This way, these liberals, who worship themselves, can declare in one way or another what they actually want to become. Trouble is, magic, precisely of this kind, only works on whom it works on, and it does not work on anyone else—not even on those present to collect the evidence—in much the same way that magical events at Christian miracle-working gatherings have a tendency to escape the astute attention of those right there who have come to collect such evidence!

~ Success is a horrible teacher. It seduces the ignorant into thinking that he can’t lose. It seduces the intellectual into thinking that he must win. Success corrupts; Only usefulness exalts. ~ WP. Narmer Amenuti (which names translate: Dances With Lions), was born by The River, deep within the heartlands of Ghana, in Ntoaboma. He is a public intellectual from the Sankoré School of Critical Theory, where he trained and was awarded the highest degree of Warrior Philosopher at the Temple of Narmer. As a Culture Critic and a Guan Rhythmmaker, he is a dilettante, a dissident and a gadfly, and he eschews promotional intellectualism. He maintains strict anonymity and invites intellectuals and lay people alike to honest debate. He reads every comment.

  1. Post-racial, post-human, post-national globalism led by a staunch, heaven-ordained group of red/blonde hairs and blue eyes, now at the WEF, Davos, planning like demons to so-called “save” the planet. All is nonsense…. all is an intoxication with one’s own perceived beauty and declared infallibility.

  2. Dade Afre Akufu The pure-Satanism of it is that through John Kerry (the Ketchup Prince, or Tomato Paste Prince), they have declared themselves “Gods of the Planet” in much the same way that the Heinz Family has declared itself the owner of all Tomatoes in the USA. I kid you not! Kerry declared this, just a couple of days ago, that they (as the Plant’s Gods) have gathered, of course without the consent of the rest of the world, to save the Planet! What planet you might ask? You mean a bunch of colonial neoliberal pirates are gathered to save Asase Yaa? From what? From whom?

    The problem has been Ntoaboma, and the like you see? We have sat aside and summarily dismissed the machinations of colonial and neoliberal ideas as merely senseless when we should be putting them to the logical test of Humanity versus Primitivism. Anyways they had our curiosity for some time, but now they have our attention. We shall put them to the test.

  3. Narmer Amenuti I saw Kerry, it was quite some cringey decree from Davos. Deep down we know we are diametrically opposed to their nonsense. To dismiss them has been a policy mistake by Our Traditions. Like you say, they need to be put to the test, and for the first time in a hundred years they are feeling the heat, even in Davos.
