Part 1: The Great Seal

Historic Fact: Many esoteric organizations have existed for centuries, of which many have had tremendous influence and (sometimes violent and sinful) impact over the institutions and societies of nations and people across the world. Fascists, ‘communists’, terrorists, and evil dictators are not only a thing of the past.

This article is about the United States federal government and its lesser-known history with secret societies. For generations – since the Foundation – secret societies have had tremendous influence upon the American government… but by whom and for what purpose?

One piece of evidence is the Great Seal of the United States. This is just one classic example of how iconography and symbolism have been used to preserve the history of America. In the case of the US Seal we can see how the country gets some of its heritage from secret societies.

United States seal Great seal of the US-Reverse

Notice: on the front of the Seal, the sun is eclipsed by thirteen stars and surrounded by a ring of clouds. On the reverse of the seal, the sun is eclipsed with the eye of providence – also known as the ‘all-seeing eye’ or the sun of reason (see below). There are many other features here, but these parts in particular suggest the connection between two societies with the United States.

The Great Seal wasn’t approved by Congress until 1782. The drafts were made by Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams. Their designs were merged by the Congress – to include the Eye of Providence, the date of independence, the shield, and the “E Pluribus Unum” (Out of Many, one) motto.

The Eye is an icon that dates as far back as Ancient Egyptian culture, but was more recently adopted by the Freemasons sometime in the 1600s. Appearing on the reverse of seal, the Eye (freemasonry) represents its position at the top of a solid and lasting foundation. Many of the Founding Fathers were members of or had some affiliations with Freemasonry, including Franklin, Jefferson and Adams. This history with the Masons is not especially secretive…

But there’s another man – though unmentioned in the history of the Great Seal – who’s society seems to have imposed some particular influence over some of the final design:

Part 2: Adam Weishaupt’s Illuminati

A summary of Adam Weishaupt‘s history begins with his revolt against his Jesuit upbringings in exchange for the movement of free thought (the Enlightenment). Preferring deism and a universal system, he eventually founded the movement of the Illuminati at age 28, in Bavaria (Germany). Founded on May 1, 1776 – two months before the American Declaration of Independence – his secret society spread like wildfire across Europe, eventually reaching the United States – without Weishaupt even being there.

“I am proud to be known to the world as the founder of the Illuminati.” – Adam Weishaupt

Adam Weishaupt - Founder of the Illuminati

Weishaupt, while still newly expanding his ‘theories of illumination’, was initiated into the Freemason Lodge in 1777. His new concept for the Illuminati was based on the idea of:

“illumination, enlightening the understanding by the sun of reason, which will dispel the clouds of superstition and of prejudice.”

He also said,

“We see with what keenness and zeal the frivolous business of Freemasons is conducted, by persons knit together by the secrecy of their union.” (more Weishaupt quotes)

The former statement reflects strongly upon the images on the Great Seal.

Weishaupt seemed to have a great appreciation for symbols, as he also said, “Every man is entitled therefore, to give any explanation of the symbols and a system of the doctrine that he can render palatable.”

Illuminati: the orphan of Freemasonry(?)

It is no secret that the founders on the United States were Masons. We also know that the Illuminati are a society that grew within Freemasonry. It is known that the Masons designed the Great Seal – as is seen in the original drafts; and it is also evident that symbolism was used here be the Congress to designate the presence of the Illuminati as well.

But the philosophy of the Masons and the Illuminati had their differences. For being geared upon gnosticism and the goal of “perfecting human” nature, the abolition of government and religion, and the apparent belief that they should rule the world – the Illuminati was rejected from Freemasonry Lodges (publicly at least; some believe that Weishaupt and the Illuminati were an intended secret by the Masonic-elite).

Another message on the Great Seal reflects their common, yet different, goals. The message “Novus Ordo Seclorum” was added by members of the Congress when approving the original (Masonic) drafts. It means “New Order of the Ages”. Perhaps to the Masons the United States was their ‘new order’, but the the Illuminati – the U.S. was to be only a stepping stone towards an eventual ‘new world order’.

Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe
By John Robison

Weishaupt had long been scheming the establishment of an Association or Order, which, in time, should govern the world.

Several associated Lodges were the nursery or preparation-school for another Order of Masons, who called themselves the Illuminated, and that the express aim of this Order was to abolish Christianity, and overturn all civil government. …members of the Lodge Theodore had unguardedly spoke of this Order as one that must in time rule the world.

The Illuminati have covered-up their zeal with the message of bringing happiness to humankind. Who wouldn’t think that a world unified would be an ideal and noble world? And so Weishaupt said, “Let this circumstance of our constitution therefore be directed to this noble purpose, and then all the objections urged against it by jealous tyranny and affrighted superstition will vanish.”

(Also, looking at the Statue of Liberty, see this page on the Weishaupt quote: “G is Grace, the Flaming Star is the Torch of Reason. Those who possess this knowledge are indeed Illuminati.”)

Part 3: The New World Order

In the past century, America has become the most elite and powerful country in the world. The United States government has established military bases in 130 countries, having some 700 bases around the world. America’s military empire has most recently revealed very strong intentions to work towards the establishment of a “New World Order”, starting with what’s being called the North American Union. What are the intentions?

“And of all illumination which human reason can give, none is comparable to the discovery of what we are, our nature, our obligations, what happiness we are capable of, and what are the means of attaining it.”

“In another situation, and in an active station in life, I should have been keenly occupied, and the founding of an order would have never come into my head. – Adam Weishaupt

Weishaupt and the Illuminati had five main goals by which to obtain their vision (quotes from Weishaupt):

  • Abolition of all religion
    • “Oh mortal man, is there anything you cannot be made to believe?”
    • “But alas, they are all sadly deficient, because they leave us under the domination of political and religious prejudices; and they are as inefficient as the sleepy dose of an ordinary sermon.
  • Abolition of patriotism/nationalism
    • The human race will then become one family, and the world will be the dwelling of Rational Men.
  • Abolition of private property
  • Abolition of all ordered governments
    • When man lives under government, he is fallen, his worth is gone, and his nature tarnished.”
  • Abolition of the family (in exchange for communal/state education of children)
    • “The first task of the association must therefore be to form the young members.”
    • The hankering of the mind is irresistible.
    • “It was the full conviction of this, and of what could be done, if every man were placed in the office for which he was fitted by nature and a proper education, which first suggested to me the plan of Illumination.”

Plato

Their new order would not be controlled by the people, but would instead be dictated by an elite group (in other words – pure Fascism).

This form of government is essentially based on ideas from The Republic of Plato, and the Illuminati’s philosophy – to achieve a ‘perfect’ society – was recently reignited by Leo Strauss (see below).

In this hypothetical, political society, (to put it simply) there are ultimately three classes of people (which are theoretically simplified to gold, silver, and bronze). The ‘gold’ class would consist of the most elite – a small part of the population who are ‘fit to rule’. According to Plato, this class is known as the ‘philosopher-kings‘. The ‘qualification’ to belong to this class is the element of Reason (logos).

“The head of every family will be what Abraham was, the patriarch, the priest and the unlettered lord of his family, and Reason will be the code of laws to all mankind.” – Adam Weishaupt

The ‘silver’ and ‘bronze’ classes are subject to the ‘reasoning’ of the elites. Silver is equated to the status of the military class (which Plato named “guardians”) – men or women – who share the duty to basically moderate between the interdependent gold and bronze class and enforce the will of the elite. The Bronze class consists of the majority of the population (average citizens) who are the “workers” (basically, the economic class of producers and consumers) who’s duty it is to produce a surplus to sustain the ‘kings’ and the ‘guardians’ – to keep the system functioning.

Plato is known to be the father of politics – his ideas have influenced virtually the entire political outcome of history since his time and his work has been widely, and highly regarded. However, never before has his Republic been seen in action, and one must ask, is it possible to achieve and could it work?

The NWO conspiracy wants to bring it – or a form of it – into reality. But if anything is certain: it’s that such course of action wages war against the free, and transforming the world inflicts inevitable and detrimental consequences to the majority. Communism and fascism have demonstrated the effects in recent history – the consequences are inevitable and expected.

Reminiscent of some of the discussion in The Republic, Weishaupt had also said:

“Sin is only that which is hurtful, and if the profit is greater than the damage, it becomes a virtue.”

If sin can become a virtue, then you have the right to do anything you want so long as the ends justify the means (according to Weishaupt, not Plato). This is somewhat reminiscent of the fascism of the Nazi party. This situation in America carries the possible threat of civil war and a very similar situation to the Holocaust. Essentially, this is what aware Americans are afraid of most.

Part 4: Neo-Conservatism

“Oh mortal man, is there anything you cannot be made to believe?…. Of all the means I know to lead men, the most effectual is a concealed mystery….The hankering of the mind is irresistible.” – Adam WeishauptLeo Strauss

In recent American history there has been the growth of a new movement in the US government called neoconservatism. While there is no outright philosophy of neoconservatism, actions speak louder than words, and the widely-criticized imperial efforts of this movement greatly assimilates the ‘what would be’ intentions of the Illuminati.

The true nature of this movement is revealed in it’s history. One of the founders of this school was a man names Leo Strauss.

Strauss was a professor of political philosophy and had a keen study in early political thought. He shared the same philosophical roots of Illuminati via the philosophy of Plato.

Leo Strauss and the Rhetoric of the War on Terror
By Nicholas Xenos

In July 1933, Strauss wrote a letter to a colleague. In it we learn that Strauss was somebody who wanted to go back to a previous, pre-liberal, pre-bourgeois era of blood and guts, of imperial domination, of authoritarian rule, of pure fascism. What Strauss hated about liberalism, among other things, was its inability to make absolute judgments, its inability to take action. He sought a way out in a kind of pre-liberal decisiveness.

I would suggest that this description of fascist, authoritarian, imperial principles accurately describes the current imperial project of the United States. Because of this, examining the foundational elements of Strauss’s political theory helps us to see something important about our current situation, independently of any kind of Straussian direct influence, although there is certainly some of that.

Straussian and Illuminati ideas came together in the past century, culminating into the neoconservative. Claes G. Ryn (Professor of Politics at The Catholic University of America) relates neoconservatives to a form of neo-Jacobians, which:

“…regards America as founded on universal principles and assigns to the United States the role of supervising the remaking of the world. Its adherents have the intense dogmatic commitment of true believers and are highly prone to moralistic rhetoric. They demand, among other things, “moral clarity” in dealing with regimes that stand in the way of America’s universal purpose. They see themselves as champions of “virtue.”

Part 5: Conclusion

Via Freemasonry and the Founding Fathers, the Illuminati’s New World Order spread its power and influence through the United States government since the establishment of the country. The history of these societies goes back to ancient times, birthing Masonry, Illuminati, and many other modern societies, and groups of every kind, including the Bilderberg Group, The Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, The U.S. Federal Reserve, and so on. And in addition to this is the influence and power over unions such as the European Union, the United Nations, and of course the United States.

Basically, the world is saturated with monster schemes with a history and objectives that most can hardly even imagine. Stealing elections to put society members in power, conspiring to the 9/11 attack, establishing military dominance in the Middle-East, erasing borders, destroying the US dollar, and undermining of the US Constitution are only the first most evident steps in the final execution of a plan that’s centuries old.
