Elected officials are only puppets. But who are the men behind the puppets–the elite who run our world? Meet the Illuminati, Freemasons, Jesuits, and International Bankers! Thanks to Leonard Ulrich and his video for the framework for this thread.
This post gives a framework for understanding, and to inspire further research; it’s not meant to be comprehensive. Many have devoted years to these topics, so I link to their work. Thanks for understanding!
Meet the Bad Guys: Illuminati, Freemasons, Jesuits and International Bankers
All secret societies trace their roots back to the ancient religions of Sumaria, Babylonia, and Egypt. These “mystery religions” served to keep the masses controlled by the elite. The word “occult” doesn’t mean evil—it means, “secret!” You are not supposed to know the secrets of the elite. That’s why it comes as such a shock to many when they realize the power of secret societies.
In the ancient world, the Israelites were unique in their monotheism. However, as they began to absorb the customs of the surrounding nations, their belief system was corrupted. Mystery religions and secret societies trace their roots back to this mixture of truth and error, codified in Kabbalah, which offers counter-explanations to truths found in Scriptures.
The beliefs of the Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, and Romans merged with Christianity when the Roman emperor Constantine converted and made Christianity the official religion of the Roman empire. Gnosticism, or the idea of salvation through knowledge, has always been a primary driver of the New World Order.
The Knights Templar began in 1118 as a military-religious order that escorted pilgrims to Jerusalem during the Crusades. Dominated by the nobility, they grew in power and influence and had special protection from the Pope. Eventually they degenerated into perversion and Satan worship. The Knights merged with the Rosicrucians, a mixture of Christianity and occult religions, in the 1600s.
The Rosicrucians became the key vehicle through which occult practices were spread throughout Europe, and influenced the Jesuits’ counter-reformation. The Jesuits, an order within the Catholic system, founded in 1534 by Ignatius Loyola and Francis Xavier, rigorously opposed the Reformation and have a long track record of nefarious deeds including alleged assassinations.
Some believe the Jesuits are at the top of the Secret Society power structure; some say it’s the Illuminati. Depends on who you ask!
The Freemasons evolved from European stonemasons who, when the cathedral-building industry declined, began to focus on occult practices. Within the Freemasons exists an elite group called the Illuminati, made up of only the highest ranking Freemasons. The Illuminati combined Freemasonry, banking and religious interests.
The Illuminati, founded in Germany by Adam Weishaupt, rose to power in the late 1700s and began to influence political and banking affairs in Europe and America. Their goals include the elimination of monarchial government and patriotism to it, elimination of private property and inheritance, destruction of traditional family, and the abolition of religion. These goals line up with the New World Order. For Illuminati origins (from an author who doesn’t believe they play a role in today’s affairs) go here.
The Rothschild family was becoming the most powerful banking family in the world, and had close ties to the Illuminati. They funded both sides of the War of 1812, the Napoleonic wars, and every major war to follow. They eventually contrived to own the Bank of England. Through intermarriage, they have become royalty.
This central banking system they created, which manifests as the Federal Reserve in the United States, means that banks own the nations. They not only control a nation’s money supply, but they loan money to the government at interest, so that the government can never be free of debt. Please see this video for a breakdown of New World Order machinations, particularly how central banks work.
Before the American Revolution, the Colonies had their own interest-free monetary system, but it was outlawed by the King. After that war, and through every other war, the United States has never been able to wrest control from the banks. We remain indebted as a nation today.
a rumor caused a panic that resulted in a run on the banks, and a few years later the Federal Reserve was born. This serves as a classic example of Hegelian dialectic: 1) The government causes or exploits a problem; 2) The people cry out for help; 3) The government enacts the pre-planned “solution,” resulting in more government control.
And thus, through endless wars and other schemes, the ruthless elite maintain their control over the populace. Membership in secret societies is a prerequisite in the upper ranks in all realms including politics and entertainment. The goals of the Illuminati synthesize with those of the New World Order, and from the French Revolution to 9/11, we see them being enacted today.
