The left and right hand path descriptions on this page are somewhat misconstrued. I'm quite educated on the left hand path (Satanism in particular, especially LaVeyan Satanism), and could maybe expand upon it if necessary. I would suggest a different article for things of that matter, however. --St1rn3r 18:50, 13 February 2009 (CST)

The main problem with the explanation provided is that it splits the difference between the paths by oversimplification--it says that the LHP uses magic for bad, while the RHP uses it for good. It ignores other major factors in the split (materialism versus spiritualism, egoism versus altruism, individualism versus collectivism), as well as the definition of 'magic', and of 'good' and 'bad'. Also, most materialists on the Left Hand Path would not threaten someone with spells, as that would make no sense. --St1rn3r 18:50, 13 February 2009 (CST)
