While studying the origins of Marxist-Leninist ideology over the past several years, I began to run into something that, quite frankly, shocked me. Maybe it shouldn’t have. The depths of man’s depravity and nefarious nature never ceases to amaze me; nonetheless, the reason it “shocked” me was I thought I was wandering into tin foil hat lala-land … conspiracy! OH NO (snicker)! Call Alex Jones (no hateration, Alex)!
Now, I’m no scholar when it comes to the subject of Marxism. But I have read dozens of books, hundreds of articles; watched hours and hours of documentaries; and conducted real-life interviews with former citizens of the Soviet Union, Baltic States, Romania, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Poland, etc. I would describe myself as well-informed on the subject matter–no more, no less. My approach to delving into any complex and murky subject matter is to simply apply the basic scientific method to the best of my ability:
- Make predictions
- Test predictions
- Draw a conclusion
So, without further adieu, I’m just going to dive head-first into some very meaty and esoteric–exoteric too–subject matter. The thesis of this article is to examine the current global economic crisis in the West from both a spiritual and pragmatic perspective. My intent is to present evidence–providing quotes and facts that are known to be historically accurate, or as much as can be determined. I’ll do my best to not wander off into the giggleweeds, but you might want to put your seat-belt on. Regardless of my observations and conclusions, or your reaction therein, this is a matter that affects us all.
You may think I’ve just put my tin foil hat on bringing up the subject of the Illuminati (Illuminated Ones). But the secret society of the Illuminati was the something I kept running into in my research on the origins and birth of Marxian socialist ideology.
Karl Marx allegedly began work on the Communist Manifesto in 1844 (published in 1848), but the true authors remain murky, at best, upon deeper inquiry. Some scholars claim it was the League of Just Men (later renamed the Communist League) who compiled the Communist Manifesto for Karl Marx and Freidrich Engels.
In their infamous 1976 book None Dare Call It Conspiracy, Gary Allen and Larry Abraham claim that Karl Marx was approached by the Illuminati – calling themselves The League Of Just Men (Bund der Gerechten) – who commissioned him to write his Communist Manifesto. The League of Just Men was said to be simply an extension of the Illuminati, which was forced to go deep underground after it was exposed by a raid in 1786 conducted by the Bavarian authorities.

Again, the secret society of the Illuminati pops up when one researches the infant stages of Communism. Who were the Illuminati? The secret society of the Illuminati was founded by Adam Weishaupt on 1 May 1776– known as the “Order of Perfectibilists.” Weishaupt believed in the concept of “perfectible man”–an extreme form of rationalism.
Weishaupt was initiated into the Masonic Lodge “Theodor zum guten Rath [Theodor of Good Counsel]“, at Munich in 1777. His project of “illumination, enlightening the understanding by the sun of reason, which will dispel the clouds of superstition and of prejudice” was an unwelcome reform.Soon however he had developed gnostic mysteries of his own, with the goal of “perfecting human nature” through re-education to achieve a communal state with nature, freed of government and organized religion. He began working towards incorporating his system of Illuminism with that of Freemasonry.
Some have described Weishaupt’s philosophy as a form of radical Freemasonry; others have described Weishaupt’s aims as nothing short of satanic. Historical evidence appears to suggest that it was Weishaupt’s intention to infiltrate Freemasonry in Europe in order to promote his one-world utopian vision of bringing all governments and religions under one all-powerful central entity controlled by an elite cabal. Professor of Natural Philosophy, and Secretary to the Royal Society of Edinburgh, John Robison, A.M., wrote in 1798 about the menacing goals of the Illuminati in his book Proofs of a Conspiracy (emphasis mine, but not the capitalization):
… In short, I have found that the covert of a Mason Lodge had been employed in every country for venting and propagating sentiments in religion and politics, that could not have circulated in public without exposing the author to great danger. I found, that this impunity had gradually encouraged men of licentious principles to become more bold, and to teach doctrines subversive of all our notions of morality–of all our confidence in the moral government of the universe–of all our hopes of improvement in a future state of existence–and of all satisfaction and contentment with our present life, so long as we live in a state of civil subordination. I have been able to trace these attempts, made, through a course of fifty years, under the specious pretext of enlightening the world by the torch of philosophy, and of dispelling the clouds of civil and religious superstition which keep the nations of Europe in darkness and slavery. I have observed these doctrines gradually diffusing and mixing with all the different systems of Free Masonry; till, at last, AN ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN FORMED for the express purpose of ROOTING OUT ALL THE RELIGIOUS ESTABLISHMENTS, AND OVERTURNING ALL THE EXISTING GOVERNMENTS OF EUROPE. I have seen this Association exerting itself zealously and systematically, till it has become almost irresistible: And I have seen that the most active leaders in the French Revolution were members of this Association, and conducted their first movements according to its principles, and by means of its instructions and assistance, formerly requested and obtained: And, lastly, I have seen that this Association still exists, still works in secret, and that not only several appearances among ourselves show that its emissaries are endeavoring to propagate their detestable doctrines among us, but that the Association has Lodges in Britain corresponding with the mother Lodge at Munich ever since 1784.
Weishaupt was taught Canon Law by the Jesuits at Ingolstadt University, a Catholic institution in Bavaria. Weishaupt graduated with a Doctor of Law degree from Ingolstadt University in 1768. In 1773, the Pope disbanded the Jesuit Order. It had already been disbanded in France and Spain.
Cries against the Jesuits rose louder and louder until on this day July 21, 1773, Pope Clement XIV dissolved the order completely. It had already been abolished in France and Spain. Clement refused to condemn the Society but merely noted he was making an administrative move for the peace of the church.

Despite the Papacy’s dissolution of the Jesuit Order, Jesuits continued to teach Canon Law at Ingolstadt University because they were the only ones qualified to do so. This greatly angered Weishaupt. According to Leonard Ulrich, Adam Weishaupt had a Catholic background and was not a secret Jew, although the 1913 version of Encyclopedia Britannica states in an entry on the Illuminati that Weishaupt was an ex-Jesuit. Professor John Robison wrote (cf. Proofs of a Conspiracy) Weishaupt became a vehement enemy of the Jesuits and laid out an audacious and diabolical plan for the secret society of the Illuminati; it can be summed up in four steps:
- Abolition of all monarchical government and patriotism to it.
- Elimination of private property and inheritance.
- Destruction of the traditional family.
- Eradication of all religion.
In 1777, Weishaupt was initiated into the Lodge of Theodor of Good Counsel in Munich, Germany. The highest ranking member (Illuminatus) of the Illuminati was Prince Karl Theodor Dahlberg. Another Illuminatus was Karl, Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, who organized the Wilhelmsbad Congress of the Illuminati via Karl’s brother, William IX, Elector of Hess. At its height, the Illuminati had a membership of some 2,000.
So concerned was John Robison over the activities of the Illuminati, that he sent out letters to the major governments throughout Europe warning them of Weishaupt’s diabolical plans to perfect man via a one-world government and religion.
In 1784, the Bavarian government exposed the Illuminati and released an edict (Nachtrag von weiteren Originalschriften weiche die Illuminaten Sekte [Addendum on the Original Writings of the Illuminati Sect]) outlawing all secret societies. Some members of the Illuminati were arrested, most fled to France and Spain.
It should be obvious to any student of Marxism-Leninism that the goals of the Illuminati are eerily congruent with Marxist-Leninist ideology.
The Mysticism of Secret Societies
In ancient Egypt, the “workers” were commanded by the priests to worship the sun. But the priests did not worship the sun per se, but rather the spirit which flowed through the sun. This knowledge was not given to the slaves by the priests. Conversely, the inner-circle of the Most High, so to speak, was privy to the “sacred knowledge” that the star Sirius (“The Dog Star”) gave the spirit to the sun–for Sirius hides behind the sun. It was only the upper-most levels that were given the “sacred knowledge” Sirius was vastly brighter than the sun; this knowledge was hidden from the priests and the “workers” (i.e. slaves). This is the main concept of the degrees of hierarchy behind secret societies. In short, the inner-part is all-seeing, while the outer parts have no knowledge of the inner-part.
Many secret societies, such as the Freemasons and Illuminati, can trace the hierarchy of their organization and philosophy back to the ancient pagan religions of Samaria, Persia, Egypt, Rome, Greece, Babylon, etc., as is evidenced in the pantheistic symbolism that adorns the accoutrements of many secret societies. The philosophy of Masonry appears to be an amalgamation of many ancient religions which flows from gnosticism–a doctrine which denies the deity of Christ and places the serpent (Lucifer) as the Illuminated One–in short: Christ bad, Satan good.
Although the members of many modern-day Masonic Lodges are decent citizens who have made many important contributions to their local communities, the highest degrees of Masonry are hidden from the lower-ranks and employ some rather disturbing occult symbolism, not to mention some bizarre rituals that undoubtedly have their roots in ancient pagan rites. The word “occult” is not a reference to Evil per se; the real definition of the word “occult” is secret, hidden. There are some very disturbing events in the history of Masonry–from mild to severe. I’ll be dealing with the topic of Freemasonry and its influence on America in an upcoming article.
House of Rothschild
Mayer Amschel Rothschild (M.A. Rothschild) was born on February 23, 1744, in Frankfurt, Germany. M.A. Rothschild would grow up to head the most successful and powerful international banking empire the world has ever known–even to this day. So powerful and influential is the Rothschild dynasty, that they were given titles of nobility by the British monarchy–eventually becoming de facto nobility by inter-marriage with the Royal Family.
M.A. Rothschild did not have a direct connection to the Illumnati–meaning, Rothschild did not merge with the Illuminati–rather he financed several members of the secret sect. The close collusion of Rothschild with William IX provided the military muscle via the Hessian mercenaries–who fought against America. Hessian mercenaries were also hired out to other European sovereign governments for their own execrable purposes.
“Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws.”
The House of Rothschild grew due to its connection with members of the Illuminati, not because they were combined …
In Part 2 of “Plutocracy of the Damned,” we will explore the genesis of the Rothschild clan and the involvement of the Illuminati in the bloody French Revolution (1787-99). Additionally, we will examine the kin of M.A. Rothschild and their indelible economic effect on the history of the United States, as well as the diabolical nature of central banking, as it relates to our current global economic crisis in the West.
