Public life

From Wikipedia's page on The Temple of Set: Born in 1946, Michael Aquino was a military intelligence officer specializing in psychological warfare [1]. In 1969 he joined Anton LaVey's Church of Satan and rose rapidly through the group's ranks [2] In 1970, while he was serving with the U.S. military during the Vietnam War, Aquino was stationed in Bến Cát in South Vietnam when he authored a tract entitled "Diabolicon" in which he reflected upon his growing divergence from the Church of Satan's doctrines [3]. In this tract, teachings about the creation of the world, God, and humanity are presented, as is the dualistic idea that Satan complements God [4]. The character of Lucifer is presented as bringing insight to human society, [5] a perspective that was inherited from the depiction of Lucifer in John Milton's seventeenth-century epic poem Paradise Lost [6].
