The Truth about Satanism and Sacrifices in Conspiracy Theory

Lucas Von Teufel 

Dear Phil, it's true what you say about some increase of the Satanism meme, promoted by several conspiracy theorists, and I will try to expose the "rationale" of this phenomenon, but first we should remember that a meme is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture." A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural  ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme. 

So, Satanism and Satanic rituals are indeed a meme, and let me tell you that the God (monotheism) meme, is the necessary supplement of the satanic meme. 
The "god" meme would loose its power without the counterpart, that is the "devil" meme. Precisely Satan means the Adversary and since God is presumably the origin of everything, he is also the creator of the Adversary. The oppositions God-Devil, Good-Evil, Darkness-Light, etc, etc, simply keep the show going on.
Now, I think that this hyperbolic presence of Satanism with rituals and sacrifices, is a manipulation of the extreme right for the benefit of a growing polarization. Historic experience shows that the "populace" is always forced to serve the dominant classes through the manipulation of religion, and consequently fear, hate and eventually a chauvinist behavior.

The script-writers serving the extreme right ideology and the Capitalists, sooner or latter present "satan" as the rebel, the renegade, the revolutionary. That's why Lucifer is the Light Bearer and was identified with Venus, the planet that symbolizes Love. Also consider the myth of  Prometheus, that cosmic Robin Hood. 
Satanism does not exist as an organized sect at all, and of course there are no human sacrifices in USA or the United Kingdom.

After all, God and Satan are both two masks for the same face, and the name of that face is non-existence. By the way, Fogg, remember that after all there is a conspiracy industry and Satan is always a best seller.
