THE SECRET AGENDA OF THE MANAGERS OF HISTORY
For many people recalling their school days seldom includes fond
memories of the history class. Boring lists of dates and names, who,
when and where but rarely ever why; it was all seemingly disjointed and
almost contrived to be instantly forgettable.
The two-hundredth anniversary of the founding of America was celebrated
in 1976 and the same anniversary is being celebrated by the people of
the French Republic in 1989. There, is of course, an historical
connection which may not be too clear in many minds but even less clear
is why each celebration has been attended by some harsh criticism. A
glimpse behind the scenes of textbook history, however, reveals a hidden
agenda and exposure of this not only enables many historical episodes to
fall into place but provides a very clear picture of where present-day
world events are taking us.
We begin early
in sixteenth century Europe where the invention of the printing press
had made both Bibles and the works of the Greek philosophers available
to many would-be scholars. The Background Ever since the fourth century
when the Roman emperor Constantine I made Christianity the official
religion, the Latin Church had gained increasing power and by the
sixteenth century the Western world was virtually ruled by the priest.
The Latin clergy in Europe, and the Pope in particular, had tremendous
power. But power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely with
the result that although Christian principles were generally the basis
for law, they were enforced more by the letter than by the spirit.
The old Latin Church had governed by providing the people with all the
schools, universities and hospitals and ensured that everyone received
Christian instruction; most knew Scriptural principles and many, though
poor, tried to live by them. The ruling classes, however, received a
more extensive private education, often paid mere lip service to
Christian principles and believed it was their God-given right to keep
the poor in submission. The feudal working classes were thus submitted
to both priest and landowner who was in turn submitted to the King. But
then we find the shadowy figure of the priest standing behind every
The corruption in the Latin Church eventually became so extreme that a
revolt was finally triggered against the papal system in Germany led by
Martin Luther; the date was 1517. England rejected the Latin pope about
a decade later only to make King Henry VIII pope of the Church of
England. These were the beginnings of the Protestant Church.
The Latin Church continued and, after the Council of Trent (1545-1563),
became the Roman Church we know today. The Protestant Church dominated
Britain, Holland and parts of Germany and, at first, tried to adhere to
Biblical principles but power corrupts... Protestants generally regarded
the Roman Church as the root of all evil although in England by the
Seventeenth century, the Protestant Church itself was as full of
hypocrisy as the Roman Church was of superstition; both were filled with
corruption and each went to war against the other.
Certain free-thinking men in England and in Europe perceived that it was
not just the Roman Church but Christianity itself which was responsible
for all the wars, corruption and inequality which had besieged Europe
for the past several hundred years. These men, who became the founders
of the "Enlightenment", wanted a total change. But it was dangerous to
speak openly against the Church and the King and organized discussion
had to be in secret. It happened that there were a number of secret
societies already in existence including the Rosicrucians and the
The latter were the builders of the great cathedrals and other major
buildings across Europe and England; they were a kind of early trade
union. In most parts of Continental Europe their numbers dwindled after
the Reformation and the Wars of Religion but in England they were still
very active. Then, in the late seventeenth century, they took on a very
different character. The free-thinkers, who were for the most part
Protestant, educated and influential, joined the Freemasons and, since
most of these gentlemen would not have known a square from a compass,
they were enrolled as "Speculative Masons" to distinguish them from the
original "Craft Masons".
The distinction was of little consequence to the gentlemen of the
Enlightenment who had cuckooed their way into the secret society and
could now make their plans and network their intentions across Europe
with little fear. The dissatisfaction with Church and King had produced
four literary works on the Utopia theme: Thomas More began the trend
with his Utopia in 1516, Sir Francis Bacon followed with his New
Atlantis published posthumously in 1627; in Italy, Tommaso Campanella
produced his City of the Sun about 1634 and later, in France, Jean
Jacques Rousseau published his Social Contract in 1762.
The authors of these works were well aware that the Greek philosopher,
Plato, writing in the 5th century BC, had also been dissatisfied with
corruption in the various systems of government. He had proposed a
Republic in which a team of "wise men" ruled the people. Plato's
Republic then became an ideal for the humanist free-thinkers in England
and Europe; the objective adopted by the speculative Masons was to
replace the existing order of rule by Church and King with a Republic.
They realized that in order to bring this form of government into
existence, they had to continue to work secretly and internationally
with the aim of first destroying the existing order. The long-term aim
was world peace through the elimination of wars between nations. But,
this would only be possible by dissolving all national sovereignty and
introducing a new world order un der one Republican World government.
The Masonic organization became world-wide from India to the Americas
under the old British Empire and, as we shall see, has been dedicated to
these lofty aims ever since.
Who are the Masons? Although the history of Masonry has been
deliberately obscured, much work has been done in recent years by non-
Masonic historians to restore a reasonable measure of truth. However,
far worse than distorted Masonic history is the fact that Masonic
involvement in the affairs of nations has been completely erased from
the textbook. Thus, textbook history has been left as a series of
disjointed episodes without an agenda. Proof of this is the fact that
the early accounts of such leading historical characters as Benjamin
Franklin or Giuseppe Garibaldi make it very clear that Freemasonry
played a central part in their lives. However, by the time history was
written up in formal and scholarly tomes by the fellows of Trinity
College, Cambridge, there is not one hint that anyone was ever a Mason!
Cambridge historians George Trevelyan and his son, Sir George, were in
all likelihood fellow Masons and their censorship has, in a sense, been
too complete; the absence of any reference to Masonry is quite
Masonic historical works are available in public libraries and they like
to claim many eminent names as their own; this is a starting point but
caution is necessary because some, like Voltaire, entered the
brotherhood virtually on their deathbed. Nevertheless, the point of
persuading eminent men to join, even though they may not be active, is
that their names can legitimately be used later to influence others.
Rousseau, Goethe, Mozart and Kipling to name a few, were all Masons. In
this way, many kings and presidents have become Masons. In England, for
example, we find Kings Charles I and II, William III, George IV, William
IV, Edward VII, George V and George VI were all Masons and several were
masters of the Grand Lodge. We will also find an impressive list of
Church of England Bishops among them (Calvert 1917).
Then, in America, we will find that most signers of the Declaration of
Independence, including Franklin and Hancock, were Masons together with
practically every president since George Washington; president Reagan
was elected into the Scottish rite just before he left office and
president Bush has been a senior Mason for a many years. Some of these
men will have been aware of the ultimate aims of the brotherhood, others
will have been duped in by association with the great names in history
and remain blissfully unaware of the real objectives; president Reagan
was probably one of the latter.
The roots of Masonry are closely allied with Sir Francis Bacon (1561-
1626) and Sir Elias Ashmole (1617-1692) in England. Both were associated
with the Rosicrucians and the Freemasons (Gould 1904, 243 and Webster
1924, 120). Ashmole was the founder of the Asmolean Museum at Oxford and
Bacon has been credited with today's "scientific method". Perhaps of
greater interest is Bacon's New Atlantis which describes the land of
Bensalem in which there is a co-operative college of science called
Solomon's house. The house is essentially a religious community in which
the men must all take an oath of secrecy; there are 33 orders of tasks.
The similarity between this and modern Masonry with its emphasis on
Solomon's temple and 33 degrees is surely more than coincidental. But
wait, careful reading of New Atlantis shows that there were three more
orders making a total of 36 and these last three are called
"Interpreters of Nature". Theirs is the most important and secret task
since all the others report to them.
Is it possible that there are three higher orders in Masonry who oversee
the grand plan? From the number of Shriners in North America, each of
whom is a 32nd or 33rd Mason, it is amazing that not one, as far as is
known, has ever broken down and confessed all. The most likely
explanation is that most of the Shriners have no idea of the grand plan.
The effort to convince the public (but not the Inland Revenue Service)
and their own members that the Masonic objectives are charitable works
has evidently been highly successful. Many of the Rosicrucian and
Masonic groups were fused in 1717, the year of the inauguration of the
Grand Lodge, and their ritual standardized and canonized at this time.
John Toland is said to have been responsible for introducing the legend,
ritual and theology of speculative Masonry which he took from the
Hermetic and ancient Egyptian religions.
Masonry itself is a religion while their own publications admit this;
they meet in a "temple", worship the "Grand Architect", use the King
James Bible but are very careful not to mention the name of Jesus. The
name is omitted from 1 Peter 2:3-5 which is their opening prayer. This
alone should indicate that their religion is anti-Christian by nature.
Bernal (1987, 173) has shown more recently that although the Masonic
objective was to create a band of illuminati who would lead the world to
a better, more peaceful and more tolerant way of life, many millenarians
within their ranks believed that knowledge had to be reassembled before
the coming thousand-year reign. It was this thinking added to the
thought that "wise men" needed to be trained in readiness for the first
Republic, that resulted in the establishment of the Royal Society in
Founded by King Charles II, a Mason, the first president was Sir Isaac
Newton who was a Deist and most probably a Mason. The original craft
Masons always had a strong attachment to Egypt. The route is perhaps
tenuous but in the recognition that the ancient Egyptians were indeed
masters of building in stone, amythology was built up in which the
Masons saw themselves in theimage of Hiram, the half-Phoenician
craftsman builder of Solomon's temple. The Phoenicians were firmly
linked to the Egyptians in the Bible--both are listed as sons of Ham--
and Hiram Abif is at the core of Masonic mythology. The name Hiram Abif
appears only in the Coverdale translation of the Bible published about
1540 and becomes simply "Hiram King of Tyre" in the King James version
(1 Kings 5:1). Every Masonic temple is patterned after the Egyptian
temples, aligned East to West with the main entrance at the East end and
the altar at the West end so that at the vernal equinox the rising sun
will cast a shaft of light through the entrance to the altar. This is a
vestige of pagan sun worship.
The Egyptian obelisk has been adopted as a symbol of Masonic victory
over traditional Christianity and, once recognized, serves as a very
useful guide. In Egypt, the obelisk was a phallic symbol of the
resurrection through procreation, that is, the phallus was the means by
which man lived again through his off-spring. Thus, as a symbol of the
resurrection the obelisk has been used as a grave marker by the Masons,
particularly those in the senior ranks, since the sixteenth century. It
seems that the bodies of most of the English humanist thinkers
gravitated to Westminster Abbey in London and the place fairly bristles
with obelisk tomb markers. A few cemetery obelisks will contain a
Masonic square and compass to leave no doubt as to the connection but it
will be found that the personal graves of many an influential man is
topped by an obelisk: the grave of George Washington and of Sir John A.
MacDonald, first prime minister of Canada, are classic examples. The
craft Masons also tend to use the broken column as their marker but very
seldom will the empty cross be found marking a Masonic grave.
As far as their use as victory markers, an obelisk was erected to mark
the battle of the River Boyne in Northern Ireland where Protestant
William of Orange defeated Catholic King James II in 1690. There is no
evidence that William II was a Mason but the obelisk was erected in the
following century to celebrate the victory of Protestantism over
Catholicism. The Masonic organization has always opposed the Roman
Church while the Roman Pontiffs have known this and have forbidden their
people to join the Masonic Order. In recent years, however, Masons have
infiltrated the Vatican and there now seems to be some sort of unholy
alliance. The largest stone obelisk in the United States is the 550 ft.
tall Washington Monument purportedly to commemorate George Washington's
birth place. There was a great scandal when it was erected because it
was done so at public expense and the people of the time knew its real
purpose was to commemorate Masonic victory over King George III and even
victory over Christianity itself in 1776. The monument was completed in
1884. Various other victories, real and perceived, will be found to be
marked by obelisks such as that at Bunker Hill in Charleston. The French
Revolution was even more successful than the American and they had to
have an even larger obelisk to celebrate their victory.
There is a genuine obelisk stolen from Egypt to mark the victory of the
Bastille in Paris and then there is the daddy of them all, the Eiffel
Tower, just twice as tall as the Washington Monument and completed in
time for the centenary celebrations in 1889.
These victory markers will be found world-wide and enquiry will usually
show that the loser in the battle will have been some sort of
Christianity while the victory will have been asignificant step towards
the establishment of a Republic. For example, on a hill in Sicily there
is an obelisk to commemorate the Masonic victory at Gibilrossa under
Garibaldi (A Grand Orient Mason) in 1860 which led to today's Italian
Masonic Objectives Achieved The plans had been made, the location was
sufficiently remote from Old World authority and a mildly oppressive
opportunity presented itself to justify the beginning of arevolution.
The place was Philadelphia and the date was 1776.
Benjamin Franklin, journalist and publisher, was also shuttle diplomat
between like-minded revolutionaries in England and in Paris. Franklin
had persuaded Englishman and fellow-Mason, Thomas Paine, to return to
Philadelphia to help liberate America by inciting the common man to
revolt against King George III. Paine produced his Common Sense and,
after a successful revolution, this booklet was used a few months later
to form the basis for the now famous Declaration of Independence. Of the
fifty-six signatures, eight of the signatories are known to have been
Masons while twenty-four others are also claimed by the Masons to be of
their own (Knight 1983, 34).
America was no longer a British colony but a Masonic Republic: Plato
would have been delighted. The problem with Plato's Republic however, is
that the "wise men" form a one-party government in which there are no
checks and balances. Many people in America at this time knew that this
was simply inviting trouble and insisted on an opposition party. A
right-wing Democratic party was formed, however, since that time, both
parties have slipped progressively further to the left and today the
Democratic party has overtaken the Republican in its quest for the left.
It was mentioned earlier that the craft Masons looked to the early
Egyptians as masters of their craft but at the same time the speculative
Masons saw in early Egyptian government an ideal closely approaching
that of Plato's republic. The Egyptian pyramid epitomized both ideals:
extreme skill and a hierarchy of power. In choosing the Great (Cheops)
pyramid for the reverse side of the Great Seal of America. Would it be
idle speculation to suggest that the missing capstone of this pyramid
representsthe elite, the three final and secret degrees, seeing but not
being seen? The Great Seal of the United States was designed in 1789 and
it was American President and 32-degree Mason, Franklin Delano
Roosevelt, who commissioned the Great Seal to be placed on the back of
the one dollar bill in 1935. The reverse side of the Seal shows the
Great pyramid with the capstone replaced by the all-seeing eye and the
Latin caption which proclaims: "1776:
In this year began the New World Order". The French Revolution was a
contrived affair from the beginning with many of the same prime movers
as in the American Revolution thirteen years earlier. The difference was
that by 1789 every Protestant had been driven from France and the Roman
Church was fully in control whereas America had become the home to many
of the persecuted Protestants. A food shortage was engineered in Paris
and the people incited to revolt against authority. The focal point was
a great prison house, the Bastille, which was said to contain many
hundreds of their compatriots. On July 14th, 1789 the mob stormed the
Bastille only to find it occupied by seven dirty old men; one of them
was the Marquis De Sade who well deserved to be there! A hollow victory
but one which has been celebrated by Frenchmen now for 200 years.
The story of the French Revolution ha s been told many times and has
been vilified and glorified according to every writer's viewpoint. For
those who find comfort in the thought of living in a Socialist Republic,
the French Revolution was the most wonderful thing that could have
happened. Liberty, equality and just fraternity were promised but what
did the promises really mean? Liberty from God, equality for all except
the ruling elite and fraternity such as may be found in a thieve's
kitchen! We might also recall that the Russian people have lived under a
Socialist Republic ever since their revolution in 1918. Royalty was
beheaded and the church defrocked and drummedout. Priests had the
choice: publicly renounce their faith or accept the guillotine. Churches
were closed, bibles publicly burned and within three short years the
country had moved from Catholicism to atheism to paganism. Pantheism and
Nature worship had replaced whatever vestige of Christianity there was
in France in a matter of months. With a zeal to completely change th
eentire order of things, the Metric system was introduced in 1793 and
attempts were also made at this time to metricate time itself with a
ten-day week. Fortunately, the long-suffering Frenchman refused this but
the idealists have been trying to introduce the ten-day week with every
revolution since; it has never been successful.
The first French Republic was a failure and so was the second;
eventually, the 'wise-men' turned out to have feet of clay and Napoleon
Bonaparte was invited to rule over the brave new Republic. He was not
even a Frenchman and was generally regarded by the Christian world as
the Antichrist himself.
Napoleon was a diabolically clever megalomaniac and Mason who knew just
what he was about. He led thousands of the best of the nation 's young
men to their death in a futile attempt to bring the World under one
Republican rule. Lord Acton in his Essays on the French Revolution
wrote: "The appalling thing in the French Revolution is not the tumult
but the design. Through all the fire and the smoke we perceive the
evidence of calculating organization. The managers remain studiously
concealed and masked; but there is no doubt about their presence from
the first" (Webster 1969, ix).
The managers are still there, still manipulating with one steadfast
purpose: to destroy the existing order and install in its place a one
World Republic. If we have any doubts about the identity of the managers
we have only to look to the statue of Liberty in New York harbour.
Presented in 1884 as a gift from the Masons of France to the Masons of
America in celebration of the centenary of the first Masonic Republic
and liberty from the laws of God. At the great bicentenary celebrations
in Paris on July 14th 1989, it was no coincidence that the G7 Conference
was held there at the same time. Today's managers were there:
M.JacquesDelors, the President of the ECC, Helmut Kohl, President Bush
and the others, many known to be Masons, lined up for the publicity
photograph. A typical Masonic touch was the backdrop to the picture: a
large pyramid especially erected for the occasion.
1992 will see the dissolution of European and British national
sovereignty and the making of one monolithic European Republic.
Government will no doubt still have the appearance of being democratic
with opposition parties but, in fact, there will be only token
opposition because every party, no matter what the name, will be as it
is today, stacked with like-minded individuals and with one Masonic
objective. Welcome to Plato's Brave New World.
