A Few Comments About David Myatt

“Myatt has undertaken a global odyssey which took him on extended stays in the Middle East and East Asia, accompanied by studies of religions ranging from Christianity to Islam in the Western tradition and Taoism and Buddhism in the Eastern path. In the course of this Siddhartha-like search for truth, Myatt sampled the life of the monastery in both its Christian and Buddhist forms. Professor Jeffrey Kaplan


The more you read about [Myatt], the less you’ll be sure of, the more interesting he’ll become…. You’ll see why its relevant during your research. He’s something of an inspiration for me, although I was unaware of his work before I began mine.

A hint that will help you understand: his work with the order of nine angles is closer to the core than his work as a Muslim fundamentalist or a Nazi, but it is not the core. Look beyond, beyond the forms he uses. Look to how he manipulates those forms in order to achieve different ends.

He’s not a Satanist or a Nazi or a Muslim, essentially. Those are forms which he has, very effectively, manipulated to the extent that his individual agenda (wyrd) has become a permanent and self-propagating aspect of those subcultures. Modern national socialism and modern occultism, for example, have both been deeply influenced. Those may seem like backwaters– but they’re significant subcultures which have the power to affect society by their relationship to it, the degree to which they are in antipathy with other subcultures, and the way in which they attract and alter a certain kind of individual who is hugely influential upon society (the ”shaman”, the true priest, the poet). By altering those forms, he essentially alters the subtle structure of all society. Also consider that subcultures such as occultism significantly affect more mainstream media (because creators of such are often drawn to them in youth etc), and that by permanently influencing the nature of such a subculture, the media which determines the psychophysiological environment of all society can be altered.

The forms are not the message. Satanism is not the message. Nazism is not the message. Islam is not the message. They are manipulated to become vessels for Myatt’s agenda (the stars?). Believe me, you will find curious research on this fascinating. Comment on enfpforum (Internet)


Myatt may seem to have flitted from one politico-religious philosophy to another, but there is a terrible thread of continuity and rigour through his life and writings that suggests he is much more than a disingenuous provocateur. Naziism and Islamicism have served, in turn, as modalities of disruption for what remains at core an occult working to sow general chaos and division – the necessary passage of “Helter Skelter” to break down the Old Order, before the founding of the New. Whose interests are served by there being a David Myatt? Is he is own man – or men – or does he belong to someone else? Or is it something else – an intelligence service perhaps, or something, say, acausal? Jeff Wells: Nine Angles of Separation

“There was something unsettling about the man. Rumours seemed to hang around him like circling vultures…” Nick Ryan

“Myatt is an ethereal character. He is a dangerous man… Beneath [his] seemingly innocuous exterior is a man of extreme and calculated hatred” Gerry Gable (Searchlight)

Le leader charismatique du mouvement néo-nazi anglais, David Myatt, devenu Abdul Aziz Ibn Myatt, appelle les nostalgiques de l’Axe et tous les ennemis des sionistes à embrasser comme lui le Djihad, la « vraie religion martiale » celle qui lutte le plus efficacement contre les Juifs et les Américains… Expert en arts martiaux et en actions commando, Myatt est l’auteur de plusieurs manuels de terrorisme… Alexandre Del Valle

David is in ways like a modern day fairy tale himself (not only his life), but with more heart and less talking animals. It’s hard not to be fascinated, to some extent inspired or at least affected in some way. Perhaps not always to the better. He’s simply one of those men (as in mankind..) that stands out from the rest. Dan, DMOR Crew, Sweden

David Myatt – Nazi Satanist or Military intelligence?  Is David Myatt one of many ultra patriotic stooges creating politically useful armies for the global terror network? Anon Internet Comment

[Myatt] is mentally unbalanced, formally a Christian, Buddist.. now a Mudslum! lt people like him who will forever divorce the rest of us from the masses… Anon Internet Comment

Lavey was a manipulator no doubt, and he did move many away from Christianity, but the darkness is lacking, Lavey himself can top Myatt in no way from what I read of them both. Lets see – circus trainer, photographer, and producer of a BS satanic group, vs the creator of the Sevenfold path, star-game, political evil genius, man of many roles and faces, who continues to this day to push the evolutionary limits and tread unknown territory. Lavey fooled no one, he was easy to read, showed his cards, and is know for what he was. Myatt still has the bored trying to figure out who he was, and probably will for some time.” (From a debate comparing La Vey and Myatt.) Anon Internet Comment

I genuinely like Myatt. I see him in the same mold as Manson: a prophet of the Kali Yuga; a nihilistic visionary — but with a grander vision than Manson’s, and far more ruthless, fanatical and determined to see it come to fruition… Anon Internet Comment

Here we have an ex-satanist (some say probably not so ‘ex’), ex-buddhist, ex-national socialist, now claiming he’s a muslim and yet arguing for the exact same thing as he’s always argued for – destruction to bring about his ‘folk culture’ ideology where people live in primitive agrarian pseudo communities defined solely by their “race”. The only thing that has ever changed with David is the packaging. A MOAC [Myatt Obsessed Anonymous Coward] Mark 1

It must be remembered that David Myatt has openly denied the Holocaust and endorsed the slaughter of civilians using suicide bombs. Both of these actions are highly illegal in most countries and it is in the public interest that Myatt be jailed.  MOAC, Mark 2

Some people think that Myatt is a nasty weirdo, but he is ineffectual and weak with no influence. MOAC, Mark 3

Myatt as spent a life time wallowing amongst filth. NF, BNP, Combat 18, National Socialist Movement, Reichsfolk, ONA, Jihadist filth. MOAC, Mark 4

David Myatt – Gnostic activist and thinker, poet, classicist, philosopher, metaphysician and ‘Gentleman of the Road’ amongst many other things – one of the best image of a true Gnostic available in our dismal time. An a-typical National Socialist, he is also a-typical in all his spiritual pursuits. He is nothing less than a true Gnostic, struggling for nobility, Knowledge and Liberation in a three dimensional world. A National Socialist ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull,’ he soars and laughs from above at their attempts to interpret his words and actions by attempting to contain them within labels and doctrines. Holger Werner

The final conclusion as to Myatt’s intentions and nature, at this moment in time, can only realistically be that each one of us will have to draw our own conclusions based on what little we know and – more interestingly – on what we assume or believe. Our conclusion may say more about us, and our society, than it might say about Myatt himself. Julie Wright
