The Secretive Societies

Chapter 4: The Private Societies

 

 

 

The Martial Orders

 

The private societies which are, by virtue of their nature, publicly known and acknowledged to be secretive, consist of four main categories: the ancient and modern Luciferian societies documented in The Secrets of Lucifer (the Theosophical Society and the Lucis Trust, for example), the martial orders, the collegiate societies, and the organized crime syndicates. The first of the three types which we have not already covered—the martial orders—are perhaps the most historically significant, as they have evolved into both the corporate bodies which have since become the world’s financial institutions, and into the so-called secret societies, through their association with the medieval Templars, Hospitallers and Teutons. All of the so-called secret societies are therefore derivatives of the ancient Luciferian societies, and virtually all of them uphold the Luciferian tradition in their initiation rites.

As public tolerance in the West for aggressive military campaigns against foreign states has gradually but dramatically decreased since the Crusades, and because they are all nominally Christian institutions, the martial orders have basically all evolved into charitable organizations (not to be confused with tax-exempt philanthropic foundations), though a few individuals are sometimes distinguished for having more traditional motives.54 They are, however, still secretive societies based on the original model of the Templars, having the same hierarchies but without all the added degrees of initiation. Therefore, they do not actually serve as recruiting grounds for the Illuminati, but rather as outposts and, more importantly, respectable associations for otherwise despicable people like Vittorio Emanuele and George H. W. Bush.

Due to their secretive nature, martial orders often draw the attention of conspiracists—perhaps not with sufficient cause, given their low level of priority among the Illuminists’ hierarchy. In most cases, the Illuminists’ control over them is extremely loose in comparison with the other secretive societies, and it has become even looser as philanthropists have distanced themselves from conservative government and nominally Christian organizations. This is especially true on the European continent, where martial orders are not as closely connected to Freemasonry as those in England and America. For example, the title which is used to denote the highest rank of the Scottish and York Rites of Freemasonry is ‘grand master,’ but on the continent (that is, wherever the Grand Orient was established in the 19th century), at least from Italy to Russia (for example, the Order of St. Alexander Nevsky which is implicitly presided over by the Prince of Naples), the title is ‘bailiff grand cross.’ Generally speaking, each country with a Masonic grand lodge has had its own martial order, though many of these no longer exist, and the ones that do still exist are mostly religious and ceremonial (and certainly not martial).

The Templars have a history which is notorious and discontinuous, and they are therefore only glamorized for their past achievements. Nevertheless, there are currently multiple groups which bear their name and claim to be the authentic resurrection of the order. Of course, the discontinuous history is only the public history. The real and hidden history of the Templars is continuous, as the order which was famously banned in France had never even been headquartered there.55

The tangible results of the Templars’ demise in England (then still closely affiliated with the French court and the Papacy) were the independence of Scotland and the unification of the Scottish clans under the sovereignty of the grand master of the order. The result outside of Scotland was the splintering of the martial orders and the formation of others. The Knights Hospitaller became the Knights of Rhodes in 1309, when the bulk of the Templars’ wealth and prestige was conferred to them.56 Like the Templars, the order was held in high esteem because of its astounding military successes both on land and at sea.

The Knights of Rhodes suffered a major defeat in 1522 but were spared by their captors and allowed to return to Europe, where Charles V granted them the island of Malta.57 The knights held the island against Turkish intrusions before finally defeated the Ottomans in 1571. Their influence waned after the famous victory at Lepanto, until the order gradually succumbed to normal human vices. In 1798, the grand master betrayed the island of Malta to Napoleon Bonaparte, at which point the order fell into permanent decline.58

Due to the decline of the other martial orders, the Knights of Malta are now the principle order not (officially) directly associated with Freemasonry. Most of the martial orders now in existence have a grand lodge in each country where they have a presence, with the main administrative center in England or the United States. The exception to this is the Order of Malta, now based in Rome, presumably because its history extends as far back as that of the Templars and because it is controlled by the Jesuits. Incidentally, it is through the medieval Knights of Rhodes that the House of Savoy has a claim to the throne of Jerusalem.

The Order of Malta has a strong presence in the United States, as American law prohibits politicians from holding feudal titles such as those of the British honours system. Some people credit all notable political assassinations to the Knights of Malta, because they fail to distinguish between the Order of Malta and the mafia, which is understandable.59 It was through the Knights of Malta and the Propaganda Due lodge that the Illuminati were able to install one of their own members as Pope, thereby improving relations between the Catholic Church and Freemasonry. The current bailiff grand cross of the Order of Malta is Vittorio Emanuele IV, Prince of Naples and Grand Master of Italian Freemasonry.60

In Britain, the honours system is a feudal arrangement composed of knighthoods administered by the British monarch on behalf of the government.61 It is composed of (in order of precedence) the Orders of: the Garter, the Thistle, the Bath, St. Michael and St. George, the British Empire, Distinguished Service, Merit, Imperial Service, and Companions of Honour, and then the Royal Victorian Order. Military authority within the British feudal system is centralized through these quasi-Masonic orders, and each person who belongs to one of them is legally a subject of the British monarchy. Orders no longer active since the wane of British imperialism include the Royal Guelphic Order and the Order of St. Patrick, the Order of the Star of India, the Order of the Indian Empire, the Order of the Crown of India, and the Order of Victoria and Albert. The current head of the Order of St. Michael and St. George is Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn and Grand Master of the Grand United Lodge.62 Prince Charles is Great Master of the Order of the Bath.63 His father Prince Philip is Grand Master of the Order of the British Empire.64

The Teutonic Order and the Livonian Order are thought to have directly inherited the legacy of the Templars after their defeat at Acre. However, the Teutons actually based their organization on that of the Hospitallers, so the transmission is debatable (and indeed, this debate has raged at the highest levels of temporal and ecclesiastical authority since the German Reformation). The Livonian Order was nominally (but not actually) independent from the Teutons, whose land and hierarchy became the state and government of Prussia. When Prussia officially became a Protestant nation in 1525, Charles V tried to keep the order alive under his own authority, but most of the knights followed Albrecht of Prussia and went along with the conversion, so the continued existence of the Teutonics outside of Prussia is only as legitimate as that of the Templars outside of Scotland. In order to further invest the secular authority of the Order of Malta onto himself, just as the Hospitallers had gained power and prestige from the fall of the Templars, Bonaparte made an effort to get rid of the Teutons in Germany in 1809, but he lacked the power to dissolve the order completely, and it continued to operate as a ceremonial body until the Nazis outlawed it in 1938. Today, remnants of the Teutonic Order still exist in Austria and Holland as hospices.65

Other secretive orders have existed for centuries in the larger European states such as France, Greece and Russia. In the United States, the Knights of Columbus and the Society of the Cincinnati are the most prominent after the Knights of Malta. Both bare names which tell of their Luciferian origins, but neither wields much influence, and anyone whose influence is represented by membership in one of these orders is actually entrusted through some other means, as America is not old enough to have a chivalric tradition and most Americans believe their government is democratically elected, as opposed to a hereditary and feudal oligarchy.

 

 

The Collegiate Orders

 

The collegiate orders commonly identified as secret societies are those fraternities (brotherhoods) and sororities (sisterhoods) with Greek letters in their names, loosely based on the rites and symbols of the ancient Mithras cult. Except in special cases where the Luciferian education begins early—such as the case of those sent to boarding schools in Switzerland or to Round Square schools—the collegiate fraternities are the most common way by which Illuminists indoctrinate their heirs, and by which they are initiated and accepted into the larger network of Illuminati. College fraternities offer a socially acceptable and low-risk means of initiation, as most of the initiates go to college as a matter of course, and as there are enough fraternity members at those colleges to make the association seem relatively unimportant.

These fraternities encourage hedonism, making the experience enjoyable for initiates. Licentious behavior at fraternity houses is normally tolerated—even expected—far more than anywhere else in upper class society in the West. To demonstrate who really rules the world behind the scenes, we could compare the simplicity of fraternal initiation and indoctrination to the full-time collegiate studies of the Society of Jesus which take 12 years to complete and are reserved for monks. Furthermore, the arcane rituals ensure that the members keep their oaths with threat of harm or blackmail and promises of future prosperity with minimal effort. The most prominent of the Illuminati’s collegiate societies are located at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. These include Book and Snake, the Manuscript Society, Sage and Chalice, Scroll and Key, and of course Skull and Bones.66 Other important Satanic fraternities include the Cambridge Apostles at the University of Cambridge, the Order of the Bull’s Blood at Rutgers University, the Owl Society at the University of Pennsylvania and Quill and Dagger at Cornell University.67

Secretive pseudo-Greek collegiate orders are very popular among the upper crust of American culture. The statistics of their influence is alarming, especially considering that the average citizen has no idea whatsoever what takes place at the meetings of even the most open collegiate orders (which are truly exoteric), and considering also that fraternity and sorority alumni represent less than 2% of the total US population.

-Only 3 US presidents have not been Greek in the 180 year history of fraternities.
-2/3 of all Cabinet members since 1900 have been Greek.
-3/4 of Congress is Greek.
-85% of Supreme Court justices since 1910 have been Greek.
-85% of the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are Greek.
-43 of 50 of the nation’s largest corporations are led by Greeks.
-There are 65 fraternities in the United States and Canada with a total membership of over 4.5 million.
-There are 26 sororities in the United States and Canada with a total membership of over 2.5 million.68

Most fraternities are meaningless from the global perspective and have nothing whatsoever to do with the Illuminati except perhaps that they help preserve the Mithraic symbolism in American culture and give the more powerful cults a large closet to hide in. Most of those not associated with the Illuminati are recognizable by the Greek letters in their names which originally served as acronyms to hide the full name of the organization from the uninitiated. The first of these, the FHC (1750) and Phi Beta Kappa (1776), are two exceptions. Both were established by Illuminists at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, before all the others.

FHC was founded by six students, almost certainly disciples of Voltaire and other 18th century Illuminists. The group’s actual name is unknown to the public, but some have suspected it to be the Flat Hat Club. It essentially evolved into Phi Beta Kappa, which then became the model for all other Greek societies which began popping up in the 1820s. (The Skull and Bones fraternity was founded in 1832.) The most notable early member of FHC was Thomas Jefferson, the most influential of Voltaire’s adepts in America.

Phi Beta Kappa has 270 chapters and over half a million living members, including such notable figures as Bill and Hillary Clinton, George H. W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Robert McNamara, Condoleezza Rice, Lynne Cheney, Elizabeth Dole, Phyllis Schlafly, Ralph Nader, Tom Brokaw, Tom Lehrer, Dick Lugar, Arlen Specter, Caspar Weinberger and Pat Robertson. Past members have included high-ranking Illuminati policy-makers such as the Rockefellers, Bernard Baruch, W. E. B. DuBois, Elihu Root, Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun, Eli Whitney, John Quincy Adams, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, William H. Taft, John Dewey, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., Chester A. Arthur and William H. Seward.69

Several European countries also now have secretive collegiate fraternities. The subversive nature of the collegiate orders under Illuminati control is visibly demonstrated by the Rhodes Scholarship program, for Americans attending Oxford University, created by the will of Cecil John Rhodes:

To and for the establishment, promotion and development of a Secret Society, the true aim and object whereof shall be for the extension of British rule throughout the world, the perfecting of a system of emigration from the United Kingdom, and of colonisation by British subjects of all lands where the means of livelihood are attainable by energy, labour and enterprise, and especially the occupation by British settlers of the entire Continent of Africa, the Holy Land, the Valley of the Euphrates, the Islands of Cyprus and Candia, the whole of South America, the Islands of the Pacific not heretofore possessed by Great Britain, the whole of the Malay Archipelago, the seaboard of China and Japan, the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire, the inauguration of a system of Colonial representation in the Imperial Parliament which may tend to weld together the disjointed members of the Empire and, finally, the foundation of so great a Power as to render wars impossible, and promote the best interests of humanity. Cecil John Rhodes70

The most overlooked of the collegiate orders is without a doubt the Roman Catholic Church’s College of Cardinals, because it is not commonly identified as a collegiate order except in the context of competent conspiracy research. The College of Cardinals is not a really an Illuminist institution of itself (though one could easily argue that it is more so than any collegiate order, as well as the original prototype for all Illuminist societies), and its powers are restricted under the authority of the Church’s constitution, Pope John Paul II’s Universi Dominici Gregis. The only legal power that the cardinals still maintain over the Roman Catholic Church is in papal elections (that is, when there is no Pope, who would otherwise be the College’s presiding authority, though not its official president)—power which has been completely overturned in the last half century through assassinations and political intrigue. This is the result of the Catholic doctrine of apostolic succession; the Church has placed all of its authority into the hands of a single office, and that office having been subverted, it is now and forever an Illuminati institution.

Every pope has been chosen from among the members of the College of Cardinals since 1378. It has been determined, first by Pope Paul VI in 1971, and then again by John Paul II in 1996, that cardinals over the age of 80 shall not vote in papal elections. This has effectively made it much easier for a sitting pope to secure a replacement, as the younger cardinals are all likely to have been appointed by him. As of December 2012, only 119 of the 211 cardinals in the college are under the age of 80.71

Other social clubs which are called fraternities and which base themselves on Freemasonry have a purely social (and sometimes charitable) purpose. They are not typically associated with any colleges or universities, and should not be confused with the collegiate orders. The most influential of these are the Elks, the Lions and the Shriners. Some of these have undergone complete overhauls in their membership or reform in their policies when confronted by anti-Masonic propaganda. This is especially true of the Elks, who are now virtually an open society as a result of their pro-Christian reforms.

 

 

The Mob

 

There are organizations within the hierarchy of the Illuminati whose methods of privation, such as outright theft and extortion, are so unapologetically unfair that they will never be socially acceptable. For this reason, they constantly try to hide their connections with government agencies, and can actually be categorized as secretive societies exactly as the martial orders and college fraternities are. Like Freemasonry, the degrees of initiation in the Italian mob (or the Sicilian mafia, the most prominent of the organized crime networks in Western society) are determined partially by birthright and partially by merit. For example, to earn the privileges of a ‘made man,’ a mafia member must be a full-blooded Italian.

In America, the interests of the Central Intelligence Agency and those of the mafia are so closely connected that they are virtually identical. For example, former CIA director George H. W. Bush holds rank in both the Order of Malta (Italian Freemasonry) and the Order of the Garter (English Freemasonry), and thus has had a publicly sworn allegiance to multiple foreign governments while serving the US in some capacity, and the powerful Kennedy family’s influence also resulted from their association with the Order of Malta. However, the influence of the Order of Malta has fallen into decline since John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy betrayed and were murdered by other Illuminists. The obvious conflict of interests is between the traditional Roman Catholic orders and the (crypto-Jew) Jesuit faction which single-mindedly wants to keep its influence over the Roman Catholic Church intact.

As discussed in The World At War, the mafia was created by Giuseppe Mazzini, Grand Master of Italian Freemasonry, as a politically subversive group without the restraints of conscience, of the kind needed to carry out the Italian Revolutions, the end of which was the usurpation of the Papacy’s political and spiritual authority. For the last century and a half, the underlings of Italy’s grand master have carried out not just every notable political assassination in the West, but countless character slander campaigns as well, among a plethora of other socially unacceptable privative ambitions. Basically, organized crime is perpetrated by the mob, the mob is the mafia (through the elimination of its competition), the mafia is Italian Freemasonry, Italian Freemasonry is Propaganda Due or P2 (technically outlawed by the Italian government) and P2 is the Illuminati Masonic lodge in Rome created for the purpose of subverting the authority of the Roman Catholic Church.

P2 and the mafia preside over the administrative arm of the Roman Catholic Church called the Roman Curia (or Court of Rome, Papal Court). They also preside over the Vatican Bank, through which the tangible power of the Church (that is, the revenue) is channeled. The subversion of the Church has been done through the gradual acceptance of the secularization of political power in Italy, as these two entities were both created for that exact purpose. The most notable events evidencing this trend are P2 grand master Vittorio Emanuele IV’s return to Italian soil in 2002 after his family’s 54 years in exile, and the Lateran Treaty of 1984 which ended the Catholic Church’s status as the state-supported religion of Italy.

Ironically, it was the infamous Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, acting on behalf of Vittorio Emanuele III, who created the Vatican City State. Catholics are implicitly led to believe that the Vatican is not a recent innovation, but Mussolini actually donated $80 million to the chartering of the new Vatican Bank.72 In truth, the Vatican was intended as a temporary solution to Mazzini’s annexation of the Papal States to Italy in 1870, which caused such a worldwide outrage that the new government guaranteed Pope Pius IX and his successors use of the Vatican and Lateran Palaces along with an annual indemnity of 3,250,000 lire. Despite the seeming generosity of this arrangement (considering the Papacy was in no position to bargain), the Church turned it down and declared its .44 km2 (.17 mi2) parcel of land a prison. After three years, in 1929, Mussolini was finally able to negotiate a settlement which severely restricted the political power of the Holy See, but guaranteed its autonomy.73

Another thing which Catholics are implicitly led to believe is that Catholic doctrine somehow allows for usury and that the Vatican is therefore a legitimate Catholic institution. The Church’s stance on this had been so clear that the Lateran Treaty actually required a rewriting of the doctrine of usury to allow for ambiguity. Usury is now defined not as gaining from the lending of money, but rather as profiting “exorbitantly.”74 Even this subversion could be reasonably overlooked if it were not so critical to the Illuminati agenda, but as far as international money-lending institutions are concerned, the Vatican is the most “exorbitant” of all, being the world’s central drug-trafficking organization, and one which is legally obligated to hand over all of its profits to public charities, but in fact retains nearly all its revenues and funnels them into secret subversive programs.

In 1968, an extremely lucrative drug profiteering scandal which had given the Vatican an incredible 50% of the take hit the press. The money laundering was carried out for the Gambino crime family by Pope Paul VI’s personal advisor Michele Sindona, and the Banco Ambrosiano’s manager Roberto Calvi, both of whom were P2 members. 44 years later, the Italian government has not charged any of the Vatican’s representatives, ostensibly because religious immunity puts the mafia above the law, and Calvi was murdered by the Jesuits before he could testify in court.75

In 1978, John Paul I appointed his secretary of state to investigate the Vatican Bank’s corruption and clean it up, but he died after only 33 days as Pope and his Illuminist successor John Paul II enthusiastically carried on the relationship between the Vatican and the mafia. The Ambrosiano scandal was then blown wide open in 1982 with an investigation into its $3.5 billion collapse. The Vatican Bank’s chief Paul Marcinkus (1971-1989) was indicted for his role, and this time Ambrosiano was openly accused of P2/mafia connections, and of its role in Operation Gladio, a secret and corrupt NATO paramilitary front with worldwide operations. Virtually no one who has been responsible for the Vatican Bank’s corruption has been tried or convicted of any crime, but a class action lawsuit was filed in 1999, representing 300,000 alleged Holocaust victims, before it was dismissed in 2007 on the grounds of “sovereign immunity” (a euphemism for impunity—the Vatican Bank, being an administrative arm of the Roman Curia, is above the law, even outside the Vatican).76

The connection between Western governments (especially the American government) and the mafia should not be a surprise to any conspiracist. The American government must raise funds for the Illuminati’s secret projects without drawing public awareness, so organized crime is an integral part of the nation’s financial industries. The largest source of revenue is through narcotics trafficking, and this requires an almost unimaginable amount of support from the major crime syndicates, which practically still exist for no other real purpose.77

The power of the mob is even more encompassing in the industrialized East, and its relationship with the governments there is even better. The Three United Society (better known as the Triads) are by far the most powerful crime syndicate in the world. They are based in China and Hong Kong but have a presence in hundreds of locations throughout the world.78 Their organization and methods of generating wealth are based on those of the mafia, and on Italian Freemasonry in general. They control virtually every aspect of the Chinese economy and government, and their ownership of law enforcement officers has given them total impunity. Some claim that the Triads are actually the most powerful organization in the world, but this claim generally denies the power of the Illuminati who preside over them.

The Triads are also known as the Three United Association, the Hung Society or Hung League, and formerly as the White Lotus Society and as the Heaven and Earth Society.79 This last name comes from the prehistoric command of the Qin emperors’ ancestors to unite all under earth and heaven (in other words, to conquer the world and eradicate opposition). Luciferianism was unknown to prehistoric China, but it became the state ideology of the Zhou (and therefore the Qin) via the Manichaeans who infiltrated the area of the Yellow River from the North and West (descendants of the Jews of Babylon who were given leave from the Persian Empire). This was the common goal of all the Luciferian rulers at that time, many of whom vehemently opposed each other over the issue of who the world’s ruler was to be.80

 

 

 

 


 


54
The famed Colonel T. E. Lawrence, for example, lived the life of a true Templar as late as the 20th century. He neither drank nor smoked, nor had any other societal vices, and made a career out of diplomacy and fighting Muslims in the Middle East. Sir Hugh would have been proud.

55 See chapter 6 for more information about Freemasonry. It would take many volumes to document the relevant facts with a reasonable interpretation, and many authors have attempted this and failed utterly. All of the available information and many theories concerning the Templars are misinformation or disinformation, because they have built on each other without any credible research or competent analysis having been undertaken regarding the early history, especially the identities of the original knights, as what is presented in The Secrets of Lucifer (chapter 4) is intended to provide. However, this is not intended to be a history of the order, but rather a brief history of the role of the Comyn and Stewart families in the overall history of Illuminism.

70 “Cecil John Rhodes,” Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_John_Rhodes.

It should not be forgotten that ‘humanity’ is a euphemism for people who espouse humanism, and in particular for the Order of the Illuminati’s ‘brotherhood of man.’ Some things are worth mentioning twice. I have also included part of this quotation in The World At War (p. 60) because the people who pathologically disregard the blatant implications of this evidence as “conspiracy theory” are only fooling themselves and deserve to have their errors repeated. At the time of this writing (2006), this Wikipedia article had a particularly laughable dismissal aimed at David Icke and the John Birch Society in the typical baseless ad hominem approach, as though the evidence does not speak for itself and needs David Icke’s interpretations for substantiation. By implying that it came from a crazy conspiracy theorist’s imagination, the subject of the brainwashing is unconsciously programmed to believe that there is no truth to the facts which are associated with the speaker, and also that he is the representative of those facts—perhaps even the sole representative—thereby invalidating what was true before he picked up on them, which is illogical and absurd. Such associations and ad hominem defamations are the rule in matters pertaining to the conspiratorial nature of history, not the exception. They are deliberately designed to stifle logic and critical thinking by appealing to the basest human emotions and impulses.

71 “College of Cardinals,” Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_of_Cardinals.

In 2006, the number was 120 out of 190, so we can clearly see the trend. There are more cardinals now, and less eligible to vote than when Cardinal Ratzinger was elected, which effectively gives him more power than his predecessor, John Paul II—a trend which I had forecasted would continue. However, this trend actually no longer matters, as all but 13 of the cardinals alive at the time of John Paul II’s death were appointed by him, only 3 were under the age of 80, and Ratzinger (one of those 3) had been his designated successor. Wikipedia also points out that as of 1903, 56.25% of the conclave was Italian, and as of 2005, only 17.09% was, after a steady decline. This also demonstrates the trend toward internationalism, with the ultimate goal of the College’s election of an African pope in the final days of the Papacy.

72 “Vatican Bank,” Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatican_Bank.

Before 1870, the Papacy collected donations from Catholic patrons. These donations were informally known as the Peter’s Pence. The Vatican’s revenue agency is erroneously considered to have been the precursor to the current incarnation of the Banco Vaticano. Obviously a bank is something quite different than a collection agency, as it operates on debt, credit and interest, not freely or coercively given hard currency. (Collection agencies work for banks.) The bank which existed after 1870 was an Illuminati creation of the Jewish-Bavarian order rather than the old Catholic one, and one of the first enactments of the new Masonic government in Rome.

78-79 Fritz Springmeier, Bloodlines of the Illuminati, ch. 7, retrieved from http://www.thewatcherfiles.com/bloodlines/li.htm.

80 The failure of the Luciferians before the present era (before the creation of the United States of America) may be regarded as a lack of consensus as to who the leader of the internationalist agenda should be. For example, Alexander the Great of Macedon campaigned for 10 years shortly before the unification of China, and only a century and a half after Xerxes had marched into Greece, supposedly at the command of his own ancestors, just as in the case of the first Chinese emperor. The goal for either of them was conquest and integration (synthesis), something which the statesmen and citizens of any state did not comprehend before the advent of the globalization movement. Alexander infuriated his generals because he wanted all men under him to be equal, but had gone to war with non-Greek nations with the Aristotelian pretenses of their inferiority. His generals responded by poisoning him and dividing the Macedonian Empire. Weishaupt’s ultimate success, though controversial at the time, was in his ability to convince the secretive societies to throw their allegiance to a single governing body and to not only overcome, but also use nationalist sentiments to further his own aims. By creating wars and attributing them to lesser entities such as national governments, the masses have been disillusioned with nationalism. The final phase of the conspiracy will determine whether the people will accept the Luciferian ideology on top of the current internationalism ethos.
