The HOGD/AO long ago came to realize that the kind of internet circus, which all of the major Golden Dawn Orders has been involved in since the middle 1990's, destroys nothing but the overall reputation of the Golden Dawn, not only as a physical body but also as an idea and as a tradition.
I know for a fact, from personal experience, that serious students are frightened away from a golden opportunity of spiritual growth because of this constant mud slinging between factions.
Our peace offering in 2009 was ignored and the attacks on our order and its leaders continued on the Internet. Still determined to foster brotherhood and harmony in the Golden Dawn community, we tried again last Spring. We invited Adepts from the entire Golden Dawn community to our International Conclave of Golden Dawn Adepti in March, 2012. As rumors surfaced of Adepts threatened by Golden Dawn leaders with expulsion if they attended, the attacks on the internet once again greatly intensified.
I know for a fact that all of these peace efforts have been sincere. These are not just empty words. The HOGD/AO has launched peace initiative upon peace initiative to foster peace and harmony in the Golden Dawn community. Recently, we even announced an International Golden Dawn Pow Wow and have again invited the entire Golden Dawn community, this time even the outer order.
The result of this sincere invitation has been intensified attacks upon the reputation of our order and its leaders on the Internet, coupled with the reappearance of defamatory anonymous blogs published by blog trolls. We have seen this all before, over and over, and numerous leaders of the recon GD community have linked to the "anonymous" blogs, so there is little doubt who is really behind them.
In the past, we as a community had to get used to anonymous defamation websites, but the saddest part of the Witch Hunt against the HOGD/AO spilled over to the blogosphere, which I refer to as the "Blog Trolls". So, naive as I am and against better judgement, I thought that I could perhaps reason with one of these guys (why do we always presume that these persons are male?) and embarked on, what I initially though was, a serious debate. I tried to reason with the guy telling him that what he did on his blog was counterproductive towards the entire Golden Dawn community, but to no avail.
I have learnt a hard lesson: Don't deal with anonymous blog trolls, don't feed them with more fuel. I did and I deeply regret that I even gave him serious attention. So now I admonish you all, who are serious in creating peace in the Golden Dawn community.
Anonymous trolls are a blight on the entire Golden Dawn. Those who attack the Alpha Omega using anonymous blog trolls think that they are harming only our order with all of the vile defamation in the anonymous blogs. They are severely mistaken. Anonymous attack blogs are severely harming the reputation of the ENTIRE Golden Dawn, both as an idea and as a tradition.
You can not reason with Anonymous Blog Trolls. They exist solely to poison and destroy the Golden Dawn by spreading misrepresentations, lies, and defamations. If you try to reason with blog trolls, they just keep repeating the same defamation talking points over and over, because they are engaging in propaganda rather than any legitimate discourse. I have tried to reason with them in the past. Based on that experience, I give you the following advice:
DON'T FEED THE BLOG TROLLS!
The sad truth is that the sincere Pow Wow peace offer (March 29-April 9, 2013) from our order to all other Golden Dawn orders, has so far been met with nothing but renewed defamation campaigns, and even with the reappearance of the anonymous blogs that have so harmed the reputation of the entire Golden Dawn in the past. This sadly gives the impression that there is no real interest in any peace from any other Golden Dawn Order today except the HOGD/AO.
But my sincere hope is that others are also interested in true peace and harmony in the Golden Dawn together with a Golden Dawn free of the internet circus that has nearly already destroyed the reputation of the Golden Dawn over the past 20 years.
Perhaps I am being naive again, but I still believe in the Golden Dawn. I hope I can find my way back into even to my original naiveness, in my belief that everything, including the Golden Dawn, is progressing to integration or "Gold".
I believe in a Golden Dawn where all recognize one another as brothers and sisters.
I believe in a Golden Dawn free of anonymous blog trolls spewing hatred across the internet.
I believe in a Golden Dawn community that sets a spiritual example for the rest or the esoteric community, instead of making itself look pathetic because of hatred spread by blog trolls.
Or am I a fool to believe in a future and Invisible Golden Dawn Fraternity "made without hands"?
