Members seek to restore balance to both the individual and the societies of Western Civilisation. They oppose those creeds, political and religious, which seek to undermine the Western peoples. The Order consists of men and women who are bound by their personal destinies to progress (in times past this was the original meaning of the word evil: to go beyond measure) to the next step in human evolution. Traditional Satanism offers an understanding of the forces that create and shape change in the phenomenal world. Members of Ordo Sinistra Vivendi believe that they are able to understand the reality of carnal existence because they are not constrained by the abstract moralities of the rest of Humanity. They believe this to be the essence of Heresy, the way of the Prince of Darkness. "
