I think this society suffers so much from too much freedom, too many rights that allow people to be irresponsible.




Well, I use the word Satanist, but I don't know if I ever really considered myself as somebody who's into Satan.




I think when I was two years old in the sandbox. I think I formulated my basic philosophy there, and I haven't really had to alter it very much ever since.




Similarly, only people as misanthropic as myself can be counted on not to have to lie to others, since we have the unique luxury of not caring what sort of opinions others formulate about us.




I have never made any secret of any of my thoughts or areas of interest. I've always been honest, open, and upfront.




I've been giving interviews for the last 25 or 30 years, more often than not answering the same questions over and over again, ad nauseum.




My impression, is that prayer is one of the most basic forms of magic. That it's harnessing the powers of your mind.




To be beyond any existing classification has always pleased me.




I've always done everything at my disposal to avoid labeling what I do, or to avoid being labeled myself.




There are a lot of people out there who think that I am their worst enemy, and I don't even care if these people exist.




The will to label will always prevail over what's being labeled, usually at the expense of either truth or understanding.




I think I feel automatically at home in Italy.




Well, I have an interest in power. I have an interest in people who find themselves in the position to exercise absolute power.




No, seriously, I really don't have much ill-will toward anyone these days; I just ignore the people that I dislike.
