May Day is a holiday celebrated by communists and pagans throughout the world. The day was chosen by communists as their special day for multiple reasons, but one stands out; namely, because May 1, 1776 was the date of the founding of the conspiracy’s predecessor, the Order of Illuminati. The world-wide communist conspiracy grew out of the Illuminati cabal and is its modern standard bearer. Today we will examine the objectives and principles of the Illuminati-communist conspiracy.
We begin with a few basic facts about the Illuminati. First, it is beyond dispute that the Order of Illuminati existed and was founded in Bavaria. It is beyond dispute that the Bavarian government attempted to suppress the Order. And it is also beyond dispute, though “experts” lie to conceal the fact, that the Order continued on in other locations and under different names after it was ostensibly suppressed in Bavaria.
The Illuminati’s founder was a man named Adam Weishaupt, who used the alias Spartacus in his correspondence. Weishaupt was an ethnic Jew raised and trained by Catholics and Jesuits. We know he studied the Kabbalah, that is, Jewish occult mysticism. He had a working knowledge of Masonry and was later initiated into the Strict Observance Lodge in Munich. He also worked, until his conspiratorial activities were uncovered, at the University of Ingolstadt as a professor of Catholic canon law.
On May 1, 1776, Franz Anton von Massenhausen, Max Edler von Merz, Bauhof, and Andreas Sutor joined with Weishaupt in his conspiracy. Together, they formed a society called in German, Perfectibilisten, or Perfectibilists (sometimes rendered as Perfectionists). The secret society later came to be known as the Order of Illuminati.
Weishaupt and his fellow initiates in the cabal wove occult ideas together with Masonic rituals and added Christian window dressing. Their aims, however, were anything but Christian. Ostensibly, the Illuminsts were philanthropists fighting for the betterment of society. Indeed, they sought the “perfection” of man, similar to how the communists wanted to create what they called “the new Soviet man.” They spoke of Liberty and fraternity and put a premium on education, or illumination. Their chief symbol was a symbol of wisdom, the Owl of Minerva – the very same used by elitist Bohemian Club today. The outward veneer, however, concealed a writhing darkness within.
The ultimate goal of the Order was to usher in a one-world government and one-world religion. This world government would be a type of elite oligarchy or dictatorship of an enlightened, or “illuminated,” few who had shaken themselves free from the dogmas, superstitions, and chains of established religions and governmental systems. Naturally, the Illuminists would sit at the pinnacle of this Platonic system of philosopher kings. Their religion would be a type of ecumenical occultism similar to that set forth by the Theosophists and other New Agers who look to Lord Maitreya and the Hierarchy of Ascended Masters for spiritual guidance. At the end of the day, what the Illuminati promoted was Anti-Christ.
Because of his occult persuasion, Weishaupt chose a significant occult holiday on which to found his Order. In his unsurpassed book on the Illuminati, titled Perfectibilists, Terry Melanson gave some background to the May 1 origin. He wrote:
“The chosen date of May 1st for the Order’s birth also has semiotic significance. Traditionally, May Day celebrations are a remnant of fire and sun worship, variously known as Beltane in the British Isles, and Walpurgisnacht in Germany and northern Europe. Weishaupt was aware of these “fire festivals” on the first of May, and instituting his Order on that day – in tandem with professing fire worship as the religion of Illuminism – was, symbolically speaking, a stroke of genius” (Terry Melanson, Perfectibilists: The 18th Century Bavarian Order of the Illuminati, 218).
It is not my present purpose to discuss the pagan aspects of Illuminism in significant detail or to explain the histories of Walpurgisnacht or Beltane, though some explanation of the former will follow. However, one must never forget that Illuminism is synonymous with Satanism, occultism, and paganism. The global Marxian-Illuminati conspiracy is, as the great statesman J. Reuben Clark, Jr. referred to it, “organized paganism” (J. Reuben Clark, Jr., “The Task Ahead,” General Conference, October, 1959).
In his foundational book Fire in the Minds of Men, the late author and professor James Billington, who served as the Librarian of Congress, explained the Illuminati’s occult and Masonic connections like this:
“The revolutionaries’ primitive vision of the world as a dualistic struggle between the forces of darkness and of light may originate in the neo-Manichaean view of Weishaupt’s followers that their elect group of “illuminated ones” was engaged in struggle with “the sons of darkness,” their categorical name for all outside the order. The name for the order was initially uncertain (Perfectibilists was used and Bees considered); but the name Illuminist was apparently chosen from the image of a sun radiating illumination to outer circles. At the very center within the inner circle of Areopagites burned a candle symbolizing the solar source of all illumination. The Zoroastrian Manichaean cult of fire was central to the otherwise eclectic symbolism of the Illuminists; their calendar was based on Persian rather than classical or Christian models.
“Pseudonyms and symbols, which had precise esoteric significance in Masonic lodges, became deliberate instruments of camouflage for the Illuminists. Ingolstadt was both Eleusis and Ephesus; Munich was Athens; Vienna, Rome. Weishaupt’s own Illuminist name of Spartacus, the leader of a slave revolt in ancient Rome, provided a hint of revolutionary commitment; but his original key collaborators took the names of the Greek Ajax and the Egyptian Danaus respectively, and other names ranged from Tamerlane to Confucius.
“The Illuminists attempted to use the ferment and confusion in Freemasonry for their own ends. Weishaupt joined a Masonic lodge in Munich in 1777; and attempted to recruit “commandos” (groups of followers) from within the lodges of the Bavarian capital. Late in I780, Weishaupt’s campaign spread to all of Germany and to the pseudo-knightly higher orders of Masonry with the entrance into Weishaupt’s inner circle of Baron Adolph Knigge. He was a native of Hanover and a leader of occultism in Frankfurt, which soon replaced Munich as the leading “colony” of the movement. For five intensive years (until Knigge left the order in July 1785), the Illuminists recruited largely among those who had belonged to the most popular of the German higher Masonic orders, the Strict Observance. The Illuminist technique was, first of all, to discredit the more conservative rival order by fair means (helping the conference of occult orders at Wilhelmsbad in 1782 to determine that the Strict Observance Lodges were not in fact descended from the Knights-Templars) and foul (arguing that the Strict Observance Lodges were secretly controlled by “unknown superiors” who were in fact Jesuits in disguise).
“The Illuminists coopted the organizational structure of their conservative Masonic rival; in the process, they acquired some of the mysterious allure that they had not possessed as an arid cult of rationalistic intellectuals. Illuminism also became much more political. Weishaupt appears to have initially seen Masonry as a kind of intermediate training ground for Illuminists – after they had entered the order but before they joined the secret inner circles” (James H. Billington, Fire in the Minds of Men, 94-95).
There’s a lot to unpackage and digest here. We won’t attempt it all today, but a few aspects deserve greater attention. There will be more on the Masonic connection shortly. At the moment, let’s focus on the matter of “the image of a sun radiating illumination to outer circles.”
The Illuminists saw themselves as the rising sun for mankind. They were to be the group who would bring light to the world and perfect mankind. They were the heralds of the dawn of a new day. It is particularly interesting, then, that the image of a rising sun was and is used by communists throughout the world. It is one of their most commonly used symbols.
Most notably, the emblem of the Soviet Union is a sun rising over the globe. Jordan Maxwell has done a lot of interesting research on the topic of ancient Egyptian sun worship (i.e. Aton/Aten worship) and its connection with world communism. Maxwell is virulently anti-Christian, however, so exercise caution when listening to him. Regardless, his research on the occult aspects of communism is quite noteworthy. Maxwell’s research confirms the link beyond any reasonable doubt.
As Billington mentioned above, the Illuminati deliberately aligned themselves with pagan traditions, calendars, dates, symbols, rituals, and rites. Much of this was borrowed from Masonry. Many believe Masonry to be a modern invention. In fact, it is quite ancient. Albert Churchward, a Mason, wrote extensively about Masonry’s Egyptian roots. In one book, he explained:
“If Masonry had not its origin in the Sacred Mysteries of the Ancient Egyptians, how could these rites and ceremonies, signs and symbols, have found their way into it? These sacred mysteries were the same amongst the Priests of the Mayas in Central America and Peru in South America.
“The passwords for the various degrees are the same, or have the same meaning; the signs and symbols are the same; and the Rituals are identical; which can be proved by any Brother who will take the trouble to learn to read the old hieroglyphic languages. . . .
“From the downfall of the old Egyptian Empire, five thousand years ago, or more, up to the last few hundred years, we have passed through a dark and degenerate age. Then our altars were thrown down, our Brotherhood scattered over the face of the earth, and some of our secrets were lost to many. But there were remnants of the Brotherhood who went forth from Egypt into various parts of the world, carrying the true doctrines and secrets with them, some one part, some another.
“. . . the so-called Lodges in England and Scotland were formed by a scattered few, who, to avoid the terrors of the law, and to keep their religious rites and ceremonies pure and unsullied, as they had received them from the parent source – old Egypt – met in secret places and had resort to private meetings. This, therefore, was one original source” (Albert E. Churchward, The Arcana of Freemasonry: A History of Masonic Signs and Symbols, 108-108, 111-112).
The “Brotherhood” of Masonry influenced the “Brotherhood” of the Illuminati – especially in the way it presented its rituals. Masonry is an imitation of God’s Priesthood and, as such, it’s fitting that Lucifer’s priesthood has adopted similar trappings.
Two authors gave us an insight into how the conspiratorial Brotherhood operates, keeps its members in line, and consolidates power. They observed:
“It is impossible to achieve high levels of initiation within Freemasonry unless one is hand picked by those of the higher degrees. In order to do this, one must meet their criteria of wealth, status, social class and character type. By the time the twentieth degree is reached a minimum of professional level income is required to fund progression through the system. The result of this financially dependent progression is that the top level members of the Brotherhood elite are among the richest, and most powerfully influential people in the world. They are also responsible, directly and indirectly for most of the money/power based crime such as the illegal drugs industry, political assassinations, Satanism and mind control which goes on every day, all round the world.
“At the apex of the pyramid of the Brotherhood are the select few who actually know the full agenda of the organisation. These privileged elite have become known as the ‘Illuminati’, which is Latin for ‘illuminated ones’. All other members (nearly five million world-wide) are ignorant of the true purpose of their individual organisation as a front for the Illuminati. Only the most suitable are selected to rise in the ranks, those recognised as being wealthy, ambitious and corrupt enough to perpetuate the ultimate goal which is world domination. No one but the Illuminati actually knows anything of importance and therefore cannot betray the game plan. Everyone else provides a front, a smoke screen of ignorance and misinformation and all must offer complete obedience to the will of their organisation or be banished (or worse). . . .
“Betrayal of the Brotherhood is the worst crime possible in the eyes of its members and is ultimately punishable by death. The Brotherhood is all powerful: all top level members of the police and military forces around the world are placed there through the Brotherhood as Brotherhood tools. Judges and lawyers, media moguls, businessmen and politicians are recruited so that no member of the Brotherhood elite is ever in danger of being held accountable by the System for any crime or misdemeanour. The Brotherhood can, and quite literally does, get away with murder because it is also the law which opposes it. If a non-Brotherhood member should slip through the net and achieve high status then there are ways to ensure that such people are unable to achieve their full potential . . . It infiltrates every area of our society at all levels, but at the top, in the highest social and monetary bracket, the Brotherhood prevails almost in total. It is the single largest vehicle for the perpetuation of the Luciferic consciousness on Earth” (Ivan Fraser and Mark Beeston, “The Brotherhood and the Manipulation of Society”).
This description captures the essence of how the world power structure actually works. It correctly demonstrates that those in positions of power are often not those who deserve to be there, but those who have sworn allegiance to the “invisible hand,” as it’s sometimes called. The account also accords perfectly with what an ancient prophet-historian documented about the workings and goals of Satan’s secret societies. Of their selfish and diabolical goals, this ancient man of God wrote simply:
“[I]t was the object of all those who belonged to [this] secret band to murder, and to rob, and to gain power, (and this was their secret plan, and their combination)” (Helaman 2:8).
This inspired writer then explained:
“Satan did stir up the hearts of the more part of [them], insomuch that they did unite with those bands of robbers, and did enter into their covenants and their oaths, that they would protect and preserve one another in whatsoever difficult circumstances they should be placed, that they should not suffer for their murders, and their plunderings, and their stealings.
“And it came to pass that they did have their signs, yea, their secret signs, and their secret words; and this that they might distinguish a brother who had entered into the covenant, that whatsoever wickedness his brother should do he should not be injured by his brother, nor by those who did belong to his band, who had taken this covenant.
“And thus they might murder, and plunder, and steal, and commit whoredoms and all manner of wickedness, contrary to the laws of their country and also the laws of their God.
“And whosoever of those who belonged to their band should reveal unto the world of their wickedness and their abominations, should be tried, not according to the laws of their country, but according to the laws of their wickedness, which had been give by [the society’s founders]. . . .
“Now behold, those secret oaths and covenants . . . were put into the heart of [the founder] by that same being who did entice our first parents to partake of the forbidden fruit. . . .
“And behold, it is he who is the author of all sin. And behold, he doth carry on his works of darkness and secret murder, and doth hand down their plots, and their oaths, and their covenants, and their plans of awful wickedness, from generation to generation according as he can get hold upon the hearts of the children of men” (Helaman 6:21-24, 26, 30).
When you read this ancient account and then examine the Order of Illuminati and its offshoots, you’re inevitably struck by the similarities and consistency. Their secret system of “justice,” that is, of disposing with defectors and making members toe the party line, is remarkably the same. And their tactics of murder and plunder are almost wholly identical through the ages. Referring to this ancient secret society, which was called the “Gadianton Robbers,” and comparing it with the modern communist-Illuminati conspiracy, the esteemed Ezra Taft Benson declared:
“When all of the trappings of propaganda and pretense have been pulled aside, the exposed hard-core structure of modern communism is amazingly similar to the ancient Book of Mormon record of secret societies such as the Gadiantons. In the ancient American civilization there was no word which struck greater terror to the hearts of the people than the name of the Gadiantons. It was a secret political party which operated as a murder cult. Its object was to infiltrate legitimate government, plant its officers in high places, and then seize power and live off the spoils appropriated from the people. (It would start out as a small group of “dissenters” and by using secret oaths with the threat of death for defectors (Hel. 11:25-26) it would gradually gain a choke hold on the political and economic life of whole civilizations.)
“The object of the Gadiantons, like modern communists, was to destroy the existing government and set up a ruthless criminal dictatorship over the whole land. . . .
“The stratagems of the leaders of these societies are amazingly familiar to anyone who has studied the tactics of modern communist leaders” (Ezra Taft Benson, “The American Heritage of Freedom – A Plan of God,” General Conference, October, 1961).
The honest observer must conclude that Satan’s game plan has remained the same. The actors have changed, the tools of the trade have changed, and the outward names and forms vary, but the core ideology, aims, and essence have been handed down from generation to generation and today dominate our world. Whether you look at the Masons, Jesuits, communists, New Agers, Sabbatean Kabbalists, or others, you find the same basic elements.
A final word about Masonry seems prudent before we move on. Please do not believe, as many do, that anyone involved in Masonry is an evil anti-Christian or a plotter against humanity. It’s simply not true. Masonry itself actually contains large gems of truth that fit beautifully within the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many good, honorable people who were not conspirators in any evil plot – such as America’s Founding Fathers – have belonged to it. Indeed, in the early days, many Masons fought against Illuminati infiltration of their lodges. In Berlin, for instance, one lodge called the Order a “masonic sect that undermines the Christian religion and turns Freemasonry into a political system” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 26).
The Craft originally emanated from a good source but has been hijacked and corrupted through the centuries by uninspired and designing men. Those who hijacked it engrafted upon it Satanic rites, rituals, and rhetoric. Today, it is used by the Illuminati as a recruiting mechanism. Adam Weishaupt regarded Masonic lodges as the Illuminati’s “nursery garden” (Nesta Webster, Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, 209-210). Other high-level communists and radicals have likewise admitted that they use Masonic lodges as recruiting stations for higher conspiracies that lower-level initiates are oblivious to. Again, be careful not to lump all Masons together incorrectly or, for that matter, to assume that because Masons had a prominent hand in founding the United States that America is the chief power in the New World Order. It’s simply not true.
I have thus far referred to the founding date of the Illuminati as May 1, 1776. This is factual. However, the founding of the ideology of Illuminism is much more ancient. As I’ve endeavored to point out, and as both ancient prophets and modern researchers have identified, the characteristic doctrines of the Illuminati go back to the very beginning.
Strictly speaking, this massive conspiracy against mankind has its origins in the pre-earth days when Lucifer rebelled against God, initiated what the Apostle John called a “war in heaven” (Revelation 12:3-9), sought to “exalt [his] throne above the stars of God” (Isaiah 14:12-17), and was eventually cast down to earth with his unembodied followers. Starting with Cain, the first murderer, Satan has exerted his cunning influence to induct people into his conspiracy – which, in the final equation, is a war against Christ and His followers (Revelation 12:17). The chaos we’ve seen in the word down through the millennia is largely attributable to this Anti-Christ conspiracy. However, the Adversary has suffered setbacks from time to time and has been forced to regroup, restrategize, and refocus. The Illuminati is the product of the most recent refocusing.
Illuminists seek worldly wealth and power. However, they also seek spiritual power. They seek to be the high priests of their god – Lucifer. They seek his protection both here and in the next life. It seems they believe that they will be shielded from divine punishment for their hedonistic debauchery, lying, theft, and murders if they throw in their lot with Satan. In quotes I won’t share here, high-level Masons and occultists like Albert Pike, Aleister Crowley, and Helena Blavatsky, make it crystal clear that they see Lucifer as a benevolent being who brought light to mankind and freed us from the intolerant cruelty of Jehovah. They falsely believe they are working for god just as Christians know we are serving the real Lord Jesus Christ. Just as Christians expect to be heirs of glory alongside Jesus Christ (Romans 8:16-17), Illuminists expect to be crowned by the hand of Lucifer in his kingdom. And no doubt they will receive their place in his kingdom!
In a brilliant, but hard-to-find pamphlet, J.R. Ledkins wrote:
“The objective of the Illuminati is to establish a one world government with Lucifer as its prince. Members of the Illuminati have literally sworn an oath to dethrone the Christ and to replace Christianity with pure Satanism. . . .
“The leaders of the Illuminati . . . are a small but very powerful group of international bankers. They have induced others into their order to include educationalists, economists, etc. These men have accepted the Luciferian doctrine of Adam Weishaupt” (J.R. Ledkins, “Wherefore the Lord Commandeth You”, 41).
Another researcher has described the Elite’s pact with Lucifer in this way:
“Secret knowledge equals power, the intended end result being (global) control – which is what the New Underworld Order perpetrators are seeking. This is of course the most demonic form of idolatry. Remember what Satan said to the Lord when he was tempting Him?: ‘Again, the Devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me’. ALL ‘kingdoms’ are in Satan’s hands.
“What these geomasonic New Underworld Order fanatics, members of the congregation of the Synagogue of Satan (the Illuminati), have done, is the precise opposite of what the Lord did: they have fallen down before Satan to worship him. But Satan, being ‘the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning’ and ‘the author of confusion’, is of course playing deadly games with them, which is what his demons invariably do when invoked. All conjuration runs the extreme risk that those doing the invocations will certainly be deceived. Satan is not a reliable partner, and cannot easily be shaken off once a person has entered into an agreement with him or his minions” (Christopher Story, The New Underworld Order, 185).
The Elite are in for a rude awakening in the day that their god is dragged down to hell in chains (Isaiah 14:12-19). But for the present, they believe they’re on the winning side. They believe, according to the Jewish Kabbalist tradition, that Jesus is in hell burning. They believe their god – the supreme authority over worldly kingdoms – is the true god.
As part of their effort to paganize the world, the conspirators promote atheism. The communists in particular promote militant atheism. It might seem counter-intuitive for Satanists to promote atheism, but it makes sense if you think about it. At the top, these “atheists” are true believers in spirits, beings from higher realms, and supernatural power. Many of them are followers of Lord Maitreya or various other Ascended Masters of Wisdom and have attested to personal visitations from these demonic entities.
The Elite are occultists, pagans, Satanists, Kabbalists, and Witches. They’re Satanists like Karl Marx, attend pagan rituals like Vladimir Lenin, consult the Kabbalah like Adam Weishaupt, and participate in Mithraism like the popes. They perform Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA). They are big on putting occult symbolism on money, in music, in movies, in architecture, and so forth. They know, however, that establishing atheism to breakdown faith in Christ is a necessary step to ushering in a world occult order. Only by breaking down faith in the Savior and in sound institutions can faith in something else be engendered.
The Illuminati understand that they must break down society before they can remold it in their own image. Vibrant Christian societies don’t suddenly collapse – they must be eroded gradually from within. This erosion strategy was promoted by Lenin, among others, and finds its subtlest form among the Marxist Fabian Socialists. Their efforts are currently directed at breaking down and demoralizing society according to the communist plan spearheaded jointly by communist provocateurs from the bottom and elitists like the Rockefellers from the top. From the ashes of Western Christian civilization, these collaborators expect the phoenix of occult Luciferianism to rise.
I repeat: A preliminary step to establishing global occultism is to quench faith in Jesus Christ, break down societies, crush nationalism, erode cultures, end national sovereignty, and establish a system of global governance. A one-world government is the prerequisite to a one-world religion. The political battles must be won before the spiritual war can be decided. Individual free will and agency must be extinguished before collectivized drones will follow orders. True believers must have their “superstitions” wiped away before they can be initiated into the grand secrets of illumination. This is why ideological communists so fiercely promote international Freedom-destroying, soul-sapping, retrograding bodies like the United Nations, the International Court of Justice, IMF, BRICS, SEATO, NATO, and the Bank of International Settlements, to name just a few. With our Freedom snatched from us, the Illuminati believe our spirits will break and we’ll surrender to their agenda.
Both Karl Marx and Adam Weishaupt disdained religion, except, of course, their own private occultist leanings. In the case of Karl Marx, we have good evidence that he was a full-fledged Satanist. Read Marx & Satan by the Reverend Richard Wurmbrand for the most concise treatment of the topic. Lenin and other Bolshevik leaders also attended pagan rituals while exiled in Italy. As a consequence of the Illuminati-communist formal stance on religion, the Soviet Union demolished churches (as the Red Chinese regime does today), murdered priests (as they do in China), and formally mocked Christian doctrines with so-called Museums of Atheism. Tellingly, some of these Museums of Atheism housed statues of Baphomet! So much for “atheism.”
As noted, the Illuminati-communists often used Christianity as a cover and frequently use the guise of Christianity to seduce unsuspecting people throughout the Western world. It was the communists who invented radical Liberation Theology – a common dogma promoted by Marxist Jesuits throughout the Catholic world and particularly in Latin America. The idea is that Jesus was a revolutionary for “social justice” – an early communist, if you will. I draw a few interesting lines from Terry Melanson’s book:
“The view of Jesus as a social revolutionary was to have tremendous appeal during the French Revolution, as well as impact upon the subsequent creation of communist ideology . . . Before the advent of Marx’s atheistic materialism, most French conspirators during the revolution claimed Christ “as a sans-culotte at heart if not a prophet of the revolution”; the disciples of Babeuf adopted an alternative to Christianity while at the same time proclaiming Christ as a “co-athlete.” Goodwyn Barmby, the first to use the term communism in England, published journals during the 1840s calling for a Communist Church combining “secular utopianism and Christian ritual.” The powerful Carbonari secret society engaged in elaborate initiation rituals, alluding to Christ “not in Christian terms, but in the Masonic language of ‘Grand Master of the Universe.’” Carbonari initiates were told “that Christ himself was the original Carbonaro and that His Twelve Apostles were the first Carbonari after Him. The aim was obviously not to make good Christians, but to turn good Christians into good Carbonari” . . . .
“Just as the outward trappings of Christianity were only a ruse by the Carbonari, so for the Illuminati before them. . . .
“To Illuminati initiates it was “revealed” that the true Christians had hid “themselves and their doctrine under the cover of Freemasonry,” which Weishaupt calls “hidden Christianity.” “[I]n the way in which I explain Christianity,” says Weishaupt, “no one need be ashamed to be a Christian, for I leave the name and substitute for it Reason”” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 187-188).
I judge this counterfeit religious nature of Illuminism-communism to be its deadliest and most dangerous aspect. Inasmuch as it imitates Christianity, but without real authority or truth, it is Anti-Christ. It is entirely Satanic. It is the Synagogue of Satan referred to by John (Revelation 2:9; 3:9). It is Mystery Babylon. It is the beast system. It is the culmination of evil in our world, the carrier of death, the harbinger of destruction, the man behind the curtain, the conspiracy of conspiracies.
According to Vitus Renner, an early deserter from the Order, one of the Illuminati’s mottoes was: “Every King and every priest is a traitor and a thief” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 31). Their schemes were directed at undermining Faith, Families, and Freedom. They assaulted the Catholic Church, calling the Jesuits a “plague” and forbidding them entrance to their Order (Nesta Webster, World Revolution: The Plot Against Civilisation, 26). They also attacked the concept of monarchy. In this case, I sympathize. I detest anyone who promotes monarchy – especially of the religious variety. The Illuminati’s anti-monarchical plan, followed through to its conclusion, is embodied by the bloody French Revolution.
There’s insufficient space here to document the fact that Illuminists played a key role in instigating the French Revolution and were the force behind the Jacobins. However, this is the reality. The French Revolution, with its pretensions of “Liberty and Fraternity,” was nothing but barbaric butchery. Heads literally rolled through the streets. The Catholic Church’s property was confiscated. Priests were forced to swear allegiance to the state. Debauchery was instituted. Subversive Jews were allowed free reign in society. This is always the fruit of “democracy” – and “democracy” is always promoted by the communist conspirators whether in France, Russia, China, Cuba, or the United States.
In many ways, the Illuminati ran rampant in France. Fortunately, their revolution faltered and they were forced underground once again. It is accurate to say that the French Revolution was a trial run. It was the forerunner of the Illuminati’s most successful revolution – the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. It was an early salvo in the cabal’s quest for world domination. The next came in 1848 with the publication of The Communist Manifesto and a rash of instigated revolutions throughout Europe.
In 1848, an Illuminati front group called the League of the Just hired Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels to write a manifesto of belief. Some researchers suspect that the Jewish radical Moses Hess – the man responsible for converting both Marx and Engels from Christianity to communism and an early founder of the Zionist movement – was the true author of the manifesto. Be that as it may, in February 1848, the League of the Just renamed itself the Communist League, published The Communist Manifesto, and declared war on the whole world with these words:
“[T]he Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things. . . .
“The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.”
When the artificial revolutions of 1848 fizzled out, the Communist League (i.e. Illuminati) realized the world wasn’t ready for full Illuminism. They went underground again. Eventually, they morphed into the Social Democratic Workers’ Party. One of its factions, the Bolsheviks, was led by the psychopathic Russian occultist Vladimir Lenin and was supported with funds from bank robberies, piracy, and other such “expropriations” by Joseph Stalin and others gangsters. Later, with political and financial assistance from fellow conspirators – Fabian Socialists, big bankers, Wall Street tycoons, Washington bureaucrats, etc. – the criminal clique of Bolshevik gangsters launched their coup in Russia, converting that nation into an Illuminati base of operations known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
It is in the Soviet Union, and in later communist conquests like Red China and North Korea, that we can more completely see the Illuminati plan in action. Illuminist Karl Marx had advocated, as did Adam Weishaupt, the abolition of private property. The two conspirators had proposed an all-powerful state ruled by a hierarchical dictatorship. Both referred to their system as “democratic.” Both set forth rules for restricting speech, thought, and dissent. Both wrote of the necessity of capturing the youth through indoctrination in public schools. Both spoke of winning over women by calling them victims of the “patriarchy” and promising them “emancipation,” to use Weishaupt’s word. Yes, the “Women’s Liberation” movement so vigorously promoted by Soviet Russia was invented in the mind of Illuminati founder Adam Weishaupt.
Soviet leaders, just like Illuminati henchmen, used aliases (often to conceal their Jewish ethnicity). Lenin used some 100 aliases (Lenin itself is an alias). Stalin, also an alias, used dozens of names during his years of criminal activity. Weishaupt used at least one alias and all of his co-conspirators assumed other names as well. Communists frequently changed their names to conceal their Jewish ethnicity. They also needed aliases to hide themselves while conducting illegal operations.
Both the Illuminati and their communist spawn operated from the shadows in the same way organized crime families operate. From their system of administration, which is the equivalent of a secretive extra-legal body, to their system of furtively funding operations, they operate like career criminals. Indeed, communists are masters of organized crime, theft, counterfeiting, forgery, drug pushing, arms running, prostitution, blackmail operations, assassination, etc. Today’s feared “Russian mafia” is little more than Soviet (Illuminati) intelligence under a new name. They have turned Israel into their own private “mini-state,” to quote author Robert Friedman, and have hijacked the global criminal underworld – just as the Illuminati previously hijacked Masonic lodges, reading societies, and other such endeavors throughout Europe (Robert Friedman, Red Mafiya: How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America, 276-282).
From the first whispers of the Illuminati’s existence, patriots have raised the warning voice against its criminal machinations. On Independence Day, 1798, Timothy Dwight, then president of Yale University, gave a speech wherein he excoriated the Order of Illuminati, warning America of its danger. In so doing, he laid forth many of their principles, which, you will notice, may as well have been taken straight from The Communist Manifesto:
“In the societies of Illuminati doctrines were taught, which strike at the root of all human happiness and virtue; and every such doctrine was either expressly or implicitly involved in their system.
“The being of God was denied and ridiculed.
“Government was asserted to be a curse, and authority a mere usurpation.
“Civil society was declared to be the only apostasy of man.
“The possession of property was pronounced to be robbery.
“Chastity and natural affection were declared to be nothing more than groundless prejudices.
“Adultery, assassination, poisoning, and other crimes of the like infernal nature, were taught as lawful, and even as virtuous actions.
“To crown such a system of falsehood and horror all means were declared to be lawful, provided the end was good.
“In this last doctrine men are not only loosed from every bond, and from every duty; but from every inducement to perform any thing which is good, and, abstain from any thing which is evil; and are set upon each other, like a company of hellhounds to worry, rend, and destroy. Of the goodness of the end every man is to judge for himself; and most men, and all men who resemble the Illuminati, will pronounce every end to be good, which will gratify their inclinations. The great and good ends proposed by the Illuminati, as the ultimate objects of their union, are the overthrow of religion, government, and human society civil and domestic. These they pronounce to be so good, that murder, butchery, and war, however extended and dreadful, are declared by them to be completely justifiable, if necessary for these great purposes. . . .
“It is a remarkable fact, that a large proportion of the sentiments, here stated, have been publicly avowed and applauded in the French legislature. The being and providence of God have been repeatedly denied and ridiculed. Christ has been mocked with the grossest insult. Death, by a solemn legislative decree has been declared to be an eternal sleep. Marriage has been degraded to a farce, and the community, by the law of divorce, invited to universal prostitution. In the school of public instruction atheism is professedly taught; and at an audience before the legislature, Nov. 30, 1793, the head scholar declared, that he and his schoolfellows detested a God; a declaration received by the members with unbounded applause, and rewarded with the fraternal kiss of the president, and with the honors of the sitting. . . .
“Where religion prevails, their system cannot succeed. Where religion prevails, Illuminatism cannot make disciples, a French directory cannot govern, a nation cannot be made slaves, nor villains, nor atheists, nor beasts. To destroy us, therefore, in this dreadful sense, our enemies must first destroy our Sabbath, and seduce us from the house of God. . . .
“. . . Shall we, my brethren, become partakers of these sins? Shall we introduce them into our government, our schools, our families? Shall our sons become the disciples of Voltaire, and the dragoons of Marat; or our daughters the concubines of the Illuminati?” (Timothy Dwight, “The Duty of Americans, at the Present Crisis,” address, July 4, 1798).
At the end of the day, we can conclude with Terry Melanson that “Weishaupt was definitely one of the original founts from which that ideology emerged” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 58). Communism is Illuminism. And Illuminism is Satanism. Until we accept this fact, we will never succeed in our fight against organized evil “in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).
What we’re really talking about when we discuss conspiracy is ideology. It doesn’t matter to Satan whether a secret society like the Illuminati or a large public group like the Council on Foreign Relations pushes forward his agenda so long as it gets pushed forward. What is consistent, however, is the ideology, the principles, and the plan. The conspiracy ideology we’re dealing with is Satanic communism. That is simply undeniable. It is also undeniable that the Order of Illuminati was the modern instrument for disseminating this revolutionary doctrine throughout the world.
Today, the conspirators operate through a myriad of front groups and organizations. They don’t all belong to the Communist Party USA. They’re not all located in Moscow or Beijing. In fact, many are found in Washington, D.C., New York, London, Paris, Tel Aviv, and other locations posing as CEOs, Wall Street moguls, politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists, lawyers, priests, professors, etc. And many of those who do belong to outwardly radical organizations are merely pawns and front-men who know little or nothing about the real conspiracy guarded carefully at the top. Even within some of the most elite clubs and councils, not everyone is in on the plan – though they must have a general idea of what they’re engaged in. This is according to the Illuminati plan laid down by Adam Weishaupt:
“The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation. None is fitter than the three lower degrees of Free Masonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it. Next to this, the form of a learned or literary society is best suited to our purpose, and had Free Masonry not existed, this cover would have been employed; and it may be much more than a cover, it may be a powerful engine in our hands. By establishing reading societies, and subscription libraries, and taking these under our direction, and supplying them through our labours, we may turn the public mind which way we will” (John Robison, Proofs of a Conspiracy, 112).
If you find a group today claiming to be the Illuminati, you can rest assured it is not. Rather, the real conspirators go by other names and cleverly conceal themselves. Often, they’ll use vague terms like “the Order” or “the Group.” Researcher Christopher Story has observed:
“All secret societies using ‘The Order’ belong to the Illuminati, which in turn is the primary manifestation of a shadowy ‘Order of the Quest’, dedicated philosophically to maximising ‘human happiness’ without God.
“The Jesuits call themselves The Order. Opus Dei refers to itself as The Order. The Yale-based Skull and Bones is The Order. The even more reprobate Ordo Templi Orientis styles itself The Order. Scratch around for secret societies labelled ‘The Order’, and you will immediately see the significance of the word ‘Order’” (Story, The New Underworld Order, Foreword).
The New World Order is little more than the Order of Illuminati in charge. But when full control is achieved, I doubt it will come in the name of “the Order” or “the Illuminati.” Rather, they’ll use one of their various front organizations or a coalition of international groups. Providing a short list of groups that have signed onto the Illuminati agenda might be beneficial.

We can debate all day which of these organizations, or others I have not listed, sits at the top of the conspiracy pyramid. Perhaps the Illuminati itself is a front group, as some believe, for the Rothschild banking dynasty. The crucial thing to know, however, is that they all share a common ideology – Satanic communism. Others prefer the term “globalism.” Some refer vaguely to “the Deep State” or “the Swamp.” Whatever you call it, the members of the conspiracy believe in the Ten Planks of The Communist Manifesto, the various principles set forth by Weishaupt, and the idea of a totalitarian one-world order ruling mankind. In the final equation, it doesn’t matter which of these earthly organizations takes the lead – they are all subservient to Satan, their true founder and puppet master.
The very existence of so many powerful international organizations sharing a common ideology should shock people. Unfortunately, the world has not awoken to this existential threat. Far too many people have been seduced by socialistic something-for-nothing ideas or otherwise have been neutralized by Marxist or pagan indoctrination. The Illuminati-communist plan of demoralization is working.
If we are to win this fight against the Illuminati-communist conspiracy, we must first acknowledge its existence, admit how dangerous it is, quarantine it like a foul contagion, and eradicate it by any means necessary. Any. Means. Necessary. You don’t compromise with cancer. You don’t peacefully coexist with Bubonic Plague. You don’t negotiate with a criminal breaking into your house at 2 A.M. You extinguish the threat ruthlessly and without hesitation.
An edict from Karl Theodor, duke of Bavaria, correctly described the danger posed by the Illuminati. The duke failed in his attempt to suppress the Illuminati contagion, but if enough people awaken to the danger, we may still thwart the Order’s endgame. Let us always remember and apply this warning from more than two centuries ago:
“As more time passes it is further realized how harmful and dangerous the Order of the Illuminati will be for the State and religion, if allowed to flourish here and beyond. It is impossible to predict the deplorable effects that would result for posterity if we stand back, if not handled very seriously while there is still time to forcefully eradicate a disease which is far more daunting than the plague itself” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 40).
