Let’s start out by stating three important points:
– Some substance use can be beneficial and even useful, for several reasons, within the limits of both the Self, the Self’s environment, and the productive goal that is to be attained through it. But when substances/drugs are taken in far too large quantities or lead to an addiction, in either a variable random mind set or even self-destructive one, then we explicitly oppose such conduct.
– Some acts of physical, verbal or any other sort of violence is beneficial or even necessary sometimes (in self-defence), but again needs to fit the limits of the Self, the Self’s environment, and the productive goal that is to be attained through it. But when violence becomes a random outlet for anything that is not productive, then we explicitly oppose such conduct.
– The only Self-destructive path we support at the Toxandrian Esoteric Offensive is the one through Sophia, ritual and eventual growth and Self-realisation/knowledge. Any other means or mind set that results in self-destructive behaviour is opposed by us.
Unsure where exactly it originated from, perhaps as counter initiative to a 1985 president Reagan campaign, but to us mostly known as a promoted mind set and movement in the (black/death) metal underground since the late 90’s, “Never Stop the Madness” endorses mass drug/substance-abuse, random violence and a self-destructive life-style to its adepts. Within the Toxandrian Esoteric Offensive, we absolutely repudiate any such mind set, movement or conduct. Furthermore, we deem it highly disgraceful, vile and detrimental to the Self.
