What is important to know that there is nothing really evil in magic. There are countless discussions how there is no black or white magic, but simply magic. What they talk about what Elites are doing is some extremist line of thinking in which they try to communicate with some potentially evil entities, but for example human sacrifice is in no traditional magic system to use. In fact these traditional systems look more like mental practices seen in the East.
Jewish Kabbalah system even (most complicated mystic system on Earth) writes about communication with beings that monotheists describe as angels. John Dee, Queen Elizabeth I personal magician and astrologist wrote Enochian alphabet for usage in similar terms Kabbalah describes. He was totally immune to prosecution from Anglican or Catholic Church.
I suspect reasons for outlawing are not exactly "its against God and its evil so don't use it for your own good". I think it was more like "we (religious authorities) have official view on reality, and we have direct line with God and only we are able to explain what God wants, so better watch yourself".
When I first found 4Chan & 8Chan, I hadn't laughed so much in ages. I loved the inventiveness, energy and humour. After a time though, once I filtered out the irony, there was a lot of darkness there too. On 8Chan one group of English lads, some who were family men, were dedicated hardcore occultists. They weren't Gen Z, they were older men.
