The origins of the dark side of esotericism and their perverse practices are found in the secret societies that operate today, within the systems of initiation practiced in the Western initiatic tradition that are called, improperly at times, the Red Rose of the Rosicrucian and Masonic movements. It seems that, at the end of the nineteenth century, this infamous minority devoted to human sacrifice and black magic often fought many of the more traditional branches of the Rose Cross, and became the dominant part of the Western initiatic tradition by manipulating the more genuine seekers of true light and knowledge in what later became known as the New Age…So the Red Rose, the rose of evil and bloody human sacrifice, which seems so rampant now in the New World Order esoteric circles, has a long history of infiltration against the good side of the tradition. When the dark side became the predominant side at the end of the nineteenth century, and the perverse elements dedicated to black magic were finally activated (as in the case of Crowley), the situation only got worse. In fact, some specific orders were created in this period within so-called fringe Freemasonry that were obsessed with sex magick, tantra, astrology and spiritism.
