Actually, amorality is the denial, whether implicit or explicit, of a system of morals.
No it isn't. Amorality is the absence of morality. Could be denial, could be ignorance, could be psychosis or sociopathy. Could be all four.

Obviously, the Golden Dawn does not fit this definition because it, like Freemasonry, has a strict code of morality. The basic theory behind this is
that one must first conquer the passions through strict moral conduct before one is ready for more serious spiritual insight.
Ideation as a means of doing that is dangerous, incoherent, and provably unsuccessful. Even if your assertion were true, which frauds like the founder
of the Golden Dawn and Aleister Crowley are demonstrators to the opposite effect. Advanc(k)ed prac(k)titioners of magic(k) seem to have a disturbing
tendencies to be arguably psychotic fraudsters of epic proportions, which doesn't really tend to make their other claims more convincing than any
other ravings of common or garden madmen and madwomen.
Interesting too that you now, speaking with whatever authority, espouse that this is a belief system known not to work, and yet claiming for itself
the mantle of Alchemy, a separate belief system and one that is universally seen as having merit, not to mention a clear moral axis.
And just to be totally crystal clear on the links being made:
RA is rarer than some claim, and as conflated as any other form of rape, but it exists, and is real, and fits the general paedophile pattern. Look it
up in a VICAP manual. But please note, unlike ritual magickkk books etc. there are no delightful pictures of sodomy, monsters, superstitious twaddle
or other nonsense. Just the cold facts about mental alienation causing violent crime.
James John Rud, a 27-year-old garbage collector with two previous sex abuse convictions, agreed to plead guilty and testify against other defendants
accused of abusing children in sex orgies, in exchange for a lighter sentence. Rud gave police a 113-page statement in which he graphically described
sadistic assaults on children. (Emmerman, 1984).
Children ranging in age from 2 to 17 years old described being molested by their parents, relatives and family friends during ritualistic orgies. The
children talked about playing games with adults that culminated in sexual assaults and said they had been drugged with alcohol and pills. Many
referred to being photographed nude and of seeing child pornography in Rud's trailer. (Crewdson, 1984).
In addition to Rud, 24 adults were charged with molesting 37 children. (Emmerman, 1984). Two defendants were tried and acquitted when one child
witness recanted his accusation of abuse. (Chicago Tribune, 1984). The prosecutor dropped the charges against all other defendants to avoid releasing
126 pages of police notes containing allegations that implicated some of the former defendants in ritualistic child murders. (Ogintz, 1984).
In January 1985, Rud was sentenced to 40 years in prison, the maximum sentence allowable by law. (Chicago Tribune, 1985)."
Some RA accusations are ridiculous and clearly not credible. Then there are all the others. And no amount of mealy mouthed defence of the unspeakable
will cure the taint, any more than Christians can deny the failings of priests and ministers and parishioners. Of course Christian child molestation
is CLEARLY against the teachings of their religion. Unlike the lunacy that hides behind the pleasant pagan flower power facade of ritual magic.
