Why serve evil gods (pt. 1)

Trained from birth to perceive only the overtly negative results of diabolism, idol worship, and the service of evil gods, most do not think to ask the question posed by today's post title. Demons are "worshipped" out of insanity, naïvety, or sheer misanthropy. There is no "why" of "devil worship."

Well, let's not turn a blind eye to those negative results, because they can be some negative fucking results. But don't forget about the benefits. Gods that demand extreme acts are usually the only ones that can be relied on for assistance. Well... better the other way around. Some gods that demand extreme acts are just plain shits.

But the numen of Dionysus is kindly. Let no ill be said of this terrifying and wonderful god. That just wouldn't be right. ᾄδετε τὸν Ἴακχον ὅνπερ οἱ μεμυημένοι δι' ἀγορᾶς, ἐὰν πείθησθε γ' ἐμοί.

It is a very bad idea to habitually invoke a god without making an effort to get to know its personality or, worse, not so much as acknowledging its individuality. Take for instance the routine ecstatic practice of using mind-altering drugs. Well, very bad idea not to enter into a relationship with a drug, because a drug will shit sure enter into a relationship with you. Worst idea: regard all drugs indifferently as "drugs" and allot yourself the culturally prescribed dose of the most socially acceptable drug—invariably this will be the most expensive and soul-destroying of drugs. In any case, failing to recognize the individual character of any geistig experience like drug use is like refusing to acknowledge a messy, inconsiderate guest sleeping at your house.

The drug gods are almost universally worshipped but are acknowledged by few.
