I find I often respond to jokes by answering literally - so I nearly commented on the middle path idea...
I think I misspoke when I said:
As the Wikipedia article says, in recent decades some prominent occultists have embraced the concept of LHP/RHP somewhat as (some?) old Tantra schools (which I think from memory includes Tibetan Buddhist tantra) did. But, as far as I can tell from google searching for contemporary articles, definitions of white / black tantra vary nowadays too. (One talks about red & dark tantra as well as b/w.)
I'm tempted to say that the terms and labels are virtually meaningless. They mean to each person or group what that person or group understands them to mean. They're not set in stone.
I think what meaning underlines a term, as used, is the key thing. I could say I'm rebellious, reject much of orthodoxy; I'm walking my own path - but I'm not interested in causing harm, being malicious etc. Doesn't matter what this is called. But we seem to find it useful to use labels. And then people misunderstand each other and talk at cross purposes because they're using differing definitions.
So labels can be useful if we understand each other but no help at all if we don't.
Personally, I'm label-adverse. ["I'm not a number I'm a free man"]
