Sergei Lezov, scientist at the Soviet Academy of Science, Institute for Scientific Information.<br><br> Strana i Mir magazine (Munich), No. 3, 1988, p. 94.<br><br> "The ideals of Bolshevism at many points are consonant with the finest ideals of Judaism." Jewish Chronicle, 4th April 1919 (London). 6 INTRODUCTION The Soviet Empire was established at four minutes past two o'clock on the 8th of November 1917 in the Russian capital, Petrograd. In astrological terms, the sun was just then precisely at the centre of the sign of Scorpio.<br><br> Thus Scorpio can be regarded as the symbol and guardian of Soviet power. The planet Pluto in turn, affects those under the direct influence of Scorpio. In the past, Mars was said to rule Scorpio but since Pluto's discovery in 1930 and its subsequent integration into the astrological system, it has assumed its rightful place in the sign of Scorpio.<br><br> The effects of Pluto, even before its discovery, have always been the same, whether or not they were attributed to another planet. The fact that the Soviet empire was born under the "wrong" planet demonstrates the inscrutable nature of Pluto, which does not show its true face until the time is ripe to restructure power to its own advantage. It has recently been revealed that the Bolsheviks were well versed in astrology.<br><br> Scorpio's field of influence includes power and financial developments at the expense of others. This is why the power-mongers of Scorpio need to stick together - to establish a political Mafia, in other words. Pluto in Scorpio also involves certain hidden circumstances, which are revealed only with the passing of time.<br><br> The astrologer E. Troinsky claimed as early as 1956 that the Soviet Empire would break up at the beginning of the 1990s. Due to their vindictiveness, cunning, brutality and art of dissembling, the wards of Scorpio are characterised as extremely dangerous opponents.<br><br> Those under the power of Scorpio are deeply materialistic extremists who like to exploit others and neither forgive nor forget. If their aims are crossed they become possessed by fury. They stop at nothing to reach these aims.<br><br> Their true nature remains shrouded in mystery. Scorpio's colour is red and its symbols are the vulture, the snake and the lifeless desert. 7 In the animal kingdom, the scorpion is known as a poisonous creature that prefers the cover of darkness.<br><br> It has been known to sting others of its kind if they get in its way. The reader will see that this description suited the Soviet system, its ideology and leaders. The brutality of Soviet power is well documented.<br><br> Its ideology bore a distinct likeness to the mirage of the desert, since neither of the two have anything at all to do with reality. Despite personal experience of Communism, the average subject of the Soviet Empire knew nothing of the fundamentals or essential points of Marxism-Leninism, or of its true origins and history. Everything of importance or in the least bit compromising has been concealed in both Western and Soviet history books.<br><br> The former president of the United States, Ronald Reagan, stated that concealment was a kind of falsehood. Therefore, the author would like to reveal a few facts, which corrupt historians usually pass over in silence. This book deals with Adam Weishaupt, who founded the Illuminist- Socialist movement in the Bavarian town of Ingolstadt on the first of May 1776, and Moses Hess, Karl Marx's guide and teacher, two names, which are not generally known to those who have passed through Marxist educational institutions.<br><br> There is a saying: communism is the bloodiest, most difficult and the most terrible way from capitalism to capitalism. The truth of this now appears to be proved by reality. The representatives of the criminal powers who halted Russia's development and threw the country into chaos have now themselves admitted that life was better in tsarist Russia than in the Soviet Union.<br><br> As an example of this, a Soviet Russian head clerk in 1968 lived at a standard, which was only 18 per cent of that which a normal Russian clerk enjoyed in 1914. It has also been calculated that a Russian labourer in 1968 lived at a standard, which was only half of his counterpart's in 1914, even counting an inflation rate of 8 per cent per year. Even so, life in Russia 8 was not so hard in 1968 as in 1991, the last year of Soviet power.<br><br> Workers during the tsarist regime earned 30 roubles per month, teachers and doctors 200. A loaf of bread (410 g) cost 3 kopecks, 410 g of meat 15 kopecks, 410 g of butter 45 kopecks, 410 g of caviar 3 roubles and 45 kopecks. If we compare the conditions in the USSR with those in the West, we find even sharper contrasts.<br><br> In 1968, the average standard of living in the United Kingdom was 4.6 times higher than in the Soviet Union. The figures are taken from Anatoli Fedoseyev's book "About the New Russia" (London, 1980). The last dictator of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev (a member of the Trilateral Commission), sought only to mend the roof of his giant empire when its socialist foundations were rotten to the core.<br><br> In the West and even in the East, the symptoms of the Socialist disease have been discussed but not its ideological, political, or economic causes. For this reason, I would like to take this opportunity to inform the reader about the ideological foundations of Soviet power and about the real reasons behind the decision to spread Socialism-Communism throughout the world using cunning and violence, a decision, which has resulted in the greatest spiritual, social and ecological catastrophe in the history of mankind. Important facts, hitherto unknown, about Soviet Communism, its crimes and its criminals, are continually publicised in present-day Russia.<br><br> Therefore, intelligent Russians are aware of essentials that are very little known in the West. I have included many such new facts in this second edition of "Under the Sign of the Scorpion", and can present an enlarged work to the reader. Juri Lina Stockholm, January 2002.<br><br> 9 MYTHS CONCERNING FALSE COMMUNISTS AND SHAM CHRISTIANS In the autumn of 1989, the crimes of the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu against the Romanian people and the Hungarian minority were discussed on Swedish television. In the studio was Jorn Svensson, a functionary for the Left-Party Communists (VPK), who claimed that the eastern European communists were not true followers of the workers' ideology because they had deviated from the Marxist doctrine. Since then, the crimes of the eastern European communists have come increasingly to the public's attention.<br><br> Therefore, their sympathisers in the West sought to take a symbolic distance from them, so as not to jeopardise their own chances to missionise in the future. Naturally, they regarded themselves as true communists, despite having previously given their full support to the Bolsheviks in the East. This has become so serious a matter that they now claim these sympathies to have been a grave mistake.<br><br> Some of the western communist parties began to camouflage themselves to hide their true principles, like the Swedish Left Party Communists, who renamed themselves simply the Left Party. The French communists demanded that their leader, Georges Marchais, step down because he had taken a holiday by the Black Sea as a guest of Ceausescu. Marchais tried to save himself with a cheap trick: he claimed that he had distanced himself from the communist regime in Romania a year earlier, when he said on television that the government of Bucharest had nothing in common with socialism.<br><br> On the 28th of December 1989, he expressed his hope in the newspaper l'Humanite that true socialism might now begin to be built up in Romania. Presumably, the three hundred million victims of communism are not enough for certain naive people to perceive the evil of the Marxist doctrine. There is not one honest person who would accept a similar view of the evils of the German national socialists, namely the regret that the leaders happened to be criminals who departed from 10 the "true and benevolent doctrine", despite the fact that the victims of the Nazi regime were far less than the number of those who perished in the countries, which the communists took over.<br><br> Milovan Djilas, one of the best-known exposers of communism, stated in an interview for the German magazine Der Spiegel (also published in the Swedish daily newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, 13th April 1983) that he believed the idea of communism had evolved from the culture of the West, from Judaism, from the Utopian philosophy, from Christianity and the medieval sects. We do indeed find some similarities between the communist system and the power structure of the Christian church, especially regarding the ideology and the intolerant attitude. Even a few Christians (not many) have, in retrospect, condemned the Fathers of the Church for their atrocious acts of violence and for laying the foundations of a system of religious totalitarianism in Europe.<br><br> Certain Christians have called these criminal Fathers of the Church and other barbaric lay members "sham" Christians. At the same time they make a point of claiming there is nothing intrinsically wrong about the doctrine; that the fault lies with the sheep, which have strayed from the path of the true doctrine. It is quite improbable that such a doctrine would be without error.<br><br> The Buddhists have not waged any religious wars or tortured any of their dissidents. Neither have they, like the Christians and the communists, forced their teachings on anyone with violence. The Christians and the communists have both been especially intolerant towards their dissidents.<br><br> Both Church and Marxism were created with a view to slavery. Both doctrines split into different factions, and both have also claimed a monopoly on the truth. The developments of twentieth century history and science have shown these doctrines to be intrinsically wrong and exploded their dogmas.<br><br> Sovietologists have revealed embarrassing facts about Marxism, and many Christian ideas have been overthrown by research in quantum physics. (Paul Davies, "God and the New Physics", 1983.) 11 Even a cursory glance at the New Testament, which was claimed to be holy, reveals that descriptions are unsupported by any evidence. For instance, the description of Herod the Great is completely erroneous - there is no evidence that he ever ordered any mass slaughter of children.<br><br> Compared to others, he appears to have been a benevolent king. Historical evidence shows that he, during the great famine in Judea 24 years before the Christian era, bought foodstuffs in Egypt with the government's and his own money, whereupon he organised a fleet to fetch the supplies and distributed them within his kingdom. "His generosity proved to be spectacular", according to the historian Michael Grant ("Herod the Great", New York, 1967, London, 1971).<br><br> When the Northern (and poorer) half of Sweden suffered from famine at the end of the nineteenth century, the Bishop of Harnosand refused to distribute supplies among the people lest they got the idea that they were entitled to anything for free; it was better the congregation starved to death. (Dagens Nyheter, 24th December 1989.) Communists are infamous for causing mass famine by confiscating all of the peasants' grain. They nationalised the peasants' land to make them dependent on the state.<br><br> Both Christians and communists confiscated the lands and possessions of their most dangerous "enemies". The Roman emperor Gaius Julius Caesar (100-44 B. C.) did the opposite by buying land himself and giving it away to his soldiers to make them independent of the state.<br><br> In the 1920s, Soviet ideologues held up the "communist state" founded by Johannes Bockelson in Munster in 1534 as an example. A group of fanatical Anabaptists led by Johannes Bockelson seized power in Minister, Westphalia on the 23rd of February 1534, where they proclaimed the Miinster commune, also called "New Jerusalem". This commune became the abode of extreme ruthlessness.<br><br> Three days after the seizure of power, the first leader of the commune, Jan Matthijs, expelled all those who were not ready to accept their beliefs. Later, the leadership passed over to the baptised Jew, Johann Leiden, who 12 proclaimed himself king of New Zion (Miinster), and the town council was replaced by a council of twelve apostles. They confiscated the property of the church and the wealth of those who had fled.<br><br> They banned trade, enforced work duty and abolished money. Everything was to be owned collectively - the people were only allowed to keep their tools - all the produce was confiscated by the commune and polygamy was introduced. This community was intended to become the "thousand year reign of peace" (the Millennium).<br><br> Evil reigned in Miinster for sixteen months before the Bishop's troops arrived on the 25th of June 1535 and executed all the leaders of the commune. Later, the Baptists and the Mennonites arose from the ideology of the Anabaptists. The Anabaptists also took part in the peasant uprising and incited the poor to revolt in several cities in Germany and Holland.<br><br> The Soviet propagandists were particularly impressed by the political terror, which was the basis of the Anabaptist tactics. Both Joseph Stalin and Felix Dzerzhinsky were to have been ordained as priests, and had examples at hand. In the 1930s, Stalin began to officially compare the communist party with the Teutonic Knights of the Sword (Fratres Militiae Christi) from the 13th century.<br><br> The Taborite religious fanatic, Thomas Muntzer, attempted to seize power in central Germany during 1524-25 with the help of enraged peasants. He believed Martin Luther's reforms to be insufficient and wanted to abolish property and overthrow the aristocracy. Descriptions of similar events from an even earlier date can also be found.<br><br> The Brothers of the Apostles, led by the fanatical Fra Dolcino, seized power in Vercelli, northern Italy, in the early 1300s. Only poverty seemed righteous to them, and so they killed every rich person in the city. The terrorist regime of the Brothers of the Apostles lasted three years, from 1304 to 1307.<br><br> They did not achieve any form of social equality. The roots of communism can also be found in the book "The Prince", written by Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) 13 who was the secretary of the Council of Ten in the republic of Florence. The book presents techniques of cynical manipulation and falsehood to support an unlimited dictatorship.<br><br> It was published after his death, in 1532. A Soviet joke goes: "The Christians only preached the advantages of poverty, the communists enforced them." The similarities between the histories of communism and Christianity are sometimes shocking. Bolshevik leaders did not shy away from killing nine innocent people if the tenth victim would be a true opponent.<br><br> Crusaders occupied the French town Beziers in the year 1208, and their leader, Arnold Amalric, a baptised Jew, gave an order typical of that time: "Kill everyone - God will recognise his own!" When the Cheka's (political police's) chief, Felix Dzerzhinsky reported to Lenin in the summer of 1918 that five hundred intellectuals (scientists and cultural figures) had been executed, Lenin became ecstatic. When Pope Gregory XIII learned that 60 000 Huguenots had been murdered as heretics on the 24th-26th of August 1572, he was similarly elated and held a great feast, conducted a church service, and even minted a new coin to celebrate the massacre. This information comes from Buch- wald's book "The History of the Church".<br><br> In 1198, the church established a commission to persecute and try heretics. This later developed into the Holy Inquisition. In 1483, Tomas Torquemada (1420-1498), a Marrano (baptised Jew), was appointed Grand Inquisitor of Castilia and Aragon.<br><br> In 1492, he expelled all Jews who refused to become Marranos. Torquemada worked intensively for 18 years and burned people at the stake. He is said to have executed many children personally.<br><br> Symbolic straw dolls were burned in lieu of those who had been charged in absentia. Many people were imprisoned for life, and Torquemada sent thousands to the galleys. The terror of the Church in Spain was, however, substantially less than in the rest of Europe.<br><br> Professors Henry Kamen (Barcelona) and Stephen Haliczer (Illinois) 14 have made important revisions to the information regarding the extent of the administration of justice by the Inquisition. According to professor Jose Alvarez-Junco at the University of Tuft, the Inquisition only executed, at the most, 5000 Spaniards during 350 years, while at least 150 000 people ("witches") were burned at the stake as heretics in the other Christian countries. He concludes that all historians have spread exaggerated information and even myths about the Inquisition.<br><br> This Grand Inquisitor made torture an efficient tool: certain parts of the body were burned, certain parts had nails hammered through them, certain chosen victims were flayed alive. In order to secure their possessions, he accused other Marranos of faking their allegiance to Christianity. Another Marrano, Isaac Abrabael, controlled Spanish finances at the time.<br><br> In December 1917, a special commission for dealing with counterrevolutionaries was set up in Petrograd. This organisation was called the Cheka in Soviet Russia, and was especially infamous under its subsequent abbreviations - OGPU, NKVD, and lastly as the KGB. The Inquisition encouraged children to betray their "heretical" parents and married couples to hand each other in.<br><br> Each informer was paid four silver marks. The Soviet officials encouraged a similar type of betrayal. There are still more similarities between institutions of the Bolsheviks, the Roman Catholic Church, and the freemasons.<br><br> High church figures had commissars bearing letters authorising them to exercise the authority of 16 their masters. Similar officials were used in connection with the so-called French revolution and also by the Bolsheviks. The spies used by the church and the Inquisition were called the Militia of Christ; the law-enforcement and reconnaissance organs of the communist dictators were called the People's Militia.<br><br> The Soviet system had a hierarchy of councils, or Soviets as they were known, of which only the highest, the Supreme Soviet, had the right of pardon - a system reminiscent of the Judaic kahal. 15 Both the communists and the Christians have practised a dreadful barbarism against opponents. After the crusaders reached the river Carnascio on the 23rd of March 1307, they imprisoned the leader of the Brothers of the Apostle, Fra Dolcino, after first destroying his army of a thousand men.<br><br> He was horribly tortured and then executed on June 1st, 1307. For an entire day he was paraded through the streets of Vercelli in a wagon, whilst pieces of his body were ripped off with a pair of red-hot tongs. His shoulders apparently shuddered a little when they tore off his nose, but he had kept silent the rest of the time.<br><br> Lenin and Stalin showed similar sadism when they liquidated their opponents. Both the Christians and the communists have knowingly employed criminals. In 1095, Pope Urban II Clermonti released murderers, thieves and other criminals so that they might take part in the crusade in 1096.<br><br> On their way through Europe, these villains plundered all they could. (Mikhail Sheinman, "Paavstlus" / "The Papacy", Tallinn, 1963, p. 32.) The Bolshevik leader Leon Trotsky released criminals to terrorise the population.<br><br> Mao Zedong did the same. The religion of Marxism had roots in Christianity. As Bertrand Russell pointed out: Yahweh = dialectical Marxism.<br><br> The Messiah = Marx. The Chosen ones = the proletariat. The church = the communist party.<br><br> The Second Coming of Christ = the revolution. Hell = punishment of the capitalists. The millennium or thousand year reign of peace = communism.<br><br> The Bolsheviks had their own ten commandments and, like the church, they also mocked their opponents. 16 The totalitarianism of the church belongs to the past but if the church should ever regain its former power, its atrocities would probably be repeated. The Jesuit historian Luigi Ciccutini believed in 1950 that the church had the divine right to judge and intervene in any matter what- soever.<br><br> He claims that the church was justified in burning Filippo Giordano Bruno at the stake in February 1600. A similar danger awaits us if the communists (with the help of the financial elite) should ever grow strong again. After all their atrocities, we should ignore their pretty slogans.<br><br> One can characterise both Christianity and communism as extremely anti-cultural ideologies, both of which persecuted leading cultural figures. Both have impeded the free development of science. Due to the reactionary attitude of the church, many truths, scientific, religious and esoteric, have still not been accepted.<br><br> One of the worst crimes of Christianity was the arson ordered by the patriarch Theophilus, which led to the complete destruction of the ancient world's largest library in the Serapis temple of Alexandria in A. D. 391.<br><br> The root of this crime was the church's hatred and intolerance of knowledge springing from classical pagan Greco-Roman culture. Another example is the murder of the female philosopher and mathematician Hypatia in Alexandria in A. D.<br><br> 415. The communists also burned books and persecuted cultural figures. They even prohibited the conductor's profession because "the orchestras could play perfectly well without conductors".<br><br> Later, seeing that their orchestras could not manage without their leaders, the communists had to change their tune. Pope Leo X (1513-1521) believed it right and proper to use the "wonderful fairy tale about Jesus Christ which has given us so many advantages", as he stood upon the festive board and raised his glass. (Henry T.<br><br> Laurency, "Livskunskap Fyra", Skovde, 1995, p. 179.) Moses Hess, one of the most important founders of communist ideology, believed communism to be a perfect 17 lie to spread destruction with. (Moses Hess, "Correspondence"/"Briefwechsel", The Hague, 1959.) It is regrettable that ideologies whose fundamental principle is intolerance still halt moral development.<br><br> Two Swedish bishops, Gottfrid Billing in Vasteras, 1888, and Bo Giertz in Gothenburg, 1950, believed that it would be better to crush a child's head with a rock than not to baptise it (Henry T. Laurency, "Livskunskap Fyra", Skovde, 1995, p. 185).<br><br> Even today, Protestant and Catholic Christians continue to brutally terrorise and murder each other in Northern Ireland. Towards the end of their reign, under Mikhail Gorbachev, the communist leaders in Russia were prepared to ask the Russian Eastern Orthodox Church for help in order to preserve their power. However, what is created by violence cannot long survive.<br><br> Despite the fact that none were allowed to leave the Soviet communist party without retribution, it still collapsed when thousands of people began to leave this criminal institution in 1990. In August 1991, after the Communist party attempted to overthrow Gorbachev's reforms, the Russian president Boris Yeltsin made the communist party illegal, just as the National Socialist (Nazi) Party was outlawed after the Second World War. Life itself forced them to repudiate their primitive and unreal dialectical materialism as an infallible dogma, to part with the "holy" book "Das Kapital", and the "prophets" - Lenin, Mao, and other mass- murderers.<br><br> These worshippers of violence still have their "holy shrine" - Lenin's Mausoleum - but sooner or later they will come to realise that their Messiah, Marx, is as dead as his ism. But the most troubling and challenging question still remains - will we be able to perceive the new incarnations of this evil? 18 THE ILLUMINATI: TRIUMPH OF TREACHERY On the night of Wednesday, the first of May 1776, three men gathered at the house of a young law professor, Adam Weishaupt, in the Bavarian town of Ingolstadt.<br><br> They had decided to found a secret order to undermine the social system, at first called the Orden der Perfektibilisten (The Order of Perfectibilists). Weishaupt had been working on the plans for this order ever since 1770. Among the three guests were two of Weishaupt's students: Prince Anton von Massenhausen, who had helped work out the rules of the Order, and Franz Xaver Zwack, only registered as a member on the 22nd of February 1778.<br><br> There was also another man who later went under the pseudonym Tiberius, though nothing more is known about him. The historian Nesta Webster (actually Julian Stern) claimed that the French Count Honore Gabriel Riqueti de Mirabeau, a member of a Dutch Masonic Lodge, was also among the founding members. All the members used pseudonyms in connection with their work.<br><br> Weishaupt called himself Spartacus, Massenhausen became Ajax and Zwack Cato. The historical Porcius Cato had demanded the total destruction of the city-state of Carthago. Mirabeau was called Arcesilas, but in 1786 his alias became Leonidas (Nesta H.<br><br> Webster, "Secret Societies and Subversive Movements", London, 1924, p. 205). Mirabeau was a famous French orator who had contracted enormous debts.<br><br> Weishaupt came into contact with Mirabeau through certain Jewish bankers. Mirabeau was blackmailed into joining the Illuminati. (Nikolai Dobrolyubov, "Secret Societies in the Twentieth Century", St.<br><br> Petersburg, 1996, p. 23.) Cities and areas that were important to the Illuminati were given ancient names: Ingolstadt was called Ephesus, Munich Athens, Bavaria Achaia, Vienna Rome, Landshut Delphi, Austria Egypt and so on. With the help of confiscated documents, it can be seen that the Illuminati used the Persian calendar, where October was called Meharmeh, November Abenmeh, December Adarmeh, January Dimeh, etc.<br><br> 19 The lawyer Franz X. Zwack received his doctor's degree and became advisor to Count Salm in Landshut where a great deal of the Illuminati's archives was brought. Not long afterwards, in 1779, the Order was renamed Orden der Illuminaten.<br><br> Their primary watchword was: "The Illuminati must control the world!" But first Adam Weishaupt wanted a German unification. In 1779, Spartacus (Weishaupt) had written a letter to Marius (Jakob Anton von Hertel) and Cato (Zwack) and suggested a change of name. They intended to call themselves "Bienenorden" (Order of Bees) but they kept in "Orden der Illuminaten" in the end.<br><br> ("Einigen Originalschriften des Illuminaten-ordens" / "Collected Original Writings of the Illuminati Order", Munich, 1787, p. 320.) The Illuminati ("The Illuminated Ones") eventually became a powerful und despotic organisation in Bavaria. Its members included Baron von Thomas Bassus, Marquis Constantin Costanzo, Baron Mengenhoffen, Friedrich Munter and other influential people.<br><br> The Order was founded on approximately the same principles as the Jesuit Order. Adam Weishaupt had worked five years to develop a system, which suited him. The Order was divided into three classes (the Jesuits had four).<br><br> The first class was for novices and the lesser illuminated (Minerval), the second for freemasons (including the Scottish Knights), and the third, the mystery class, was comprised of priests, regents, magicians and a king (the Jesuits had a general). Their goal was to impose Novus Ordo Seclorum: the New World Order. The Ideological Background of the Illuminati In 1492, the Alumbrado (The Enlightened) movement was founded by Spanish Marranos (baptised Jews who secretly kept their Talmudic faith) and a similar organisation was founded in France in 1623 - "Guerients" who changed their name to Illuminati in 1722.<br><br> The Spanish authorities attempted to stop the Alumbrado movement as early as 1527 when Ignatius Loyola was temporarily arrested for his activities with the Illuminati. 20 Loyola (Inigo Lopez de Regalde), who was of Jewish blood, was born in the 1490s. In 1534, he founded his own order - the Jesuits - taking out a loan for the purpose.<br><br> The Pope acknowledged the Jesuit Order on the 5th of April 1540. Benjamin Disraeli, author and prime minister of Great Britain in 1868, and 1874-76, himself a Jew, wrote in his book "Coningsby" (London, 1844) that the first Jesuits were Jews. In this new order, all members were under Loyola's surveillance.<br><br> It was the Jewish Jesuit Cardinal Roberto Bellarmino (1542- 1621) who ordered the philosopher Filippo Giordano Bruno burnt at the stake on the 17th of February 1600. In 1771, 23-year-old Weishaupt met Kolmer, a Danish Cabbalist Jew who had just returned from Egypt. Kolmer initiated Weishaupt into the secrets of Osiris magic, the Cabbala and the Alumbrado movement.<br><br> Nesta Webster assumed that he had been known in Italy as Altotas, Cagliostro's master. Kolmer's occult knowledge made a deep impression on Weishaupt, who later chose the Egyptian pyramid as the Illuminati's symbol of power, probably using an illustration from the book "Pyramidography" (1646) by Jean Greaves, professor of astronomy at Oxford. One year earlier (1770), Weishaupt had been given a post as lecturer in canon law at the University of Ingolstadt.<br><br> He later received his doctor's degree and in 1773, at the age of 25, became a professor at the same university. During a short period he even held the post of principal. In 1800, the university moved to Landshut and from there to Munich in 1826.<br><br> It was no coincidence that the Order of the Illuminati was founded on the first of May. Among the Cabbalist Jews, this date, 15 (1.5), symbolised the sacred number of Yahweh and so became their occult holiday. According to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the first of May - the day following Walpurgis Night - is when the dark mystical forces are celebrated.<br><br> At this time a young Jew named Mayer Amschel (born February 23rd, 1744) was being tutored to become a rabbi. 21 Amschel lived with his parents in the Jewish ghetto of Frankfurt am Main. He later took the name Rothschild.<br><br> It was Mayer Amschel Rothschild who convinced Weishaupt to wholly accept the Frankist Cabbalist doctrine and who afterwards financed the Illuminati. Rothschild had given Weishaupt the task of reestablishing the old Alumbrado movement for the Cabbalist Jews. Theoretical Cabbala embraces only secret teachings about God and nature.<br><br> But practical Cabbala (such as Frankism) attempts to affect earthly matters. It involves the use of amulets and magic numbers as well as the conjuring of evil spirits. Both the Talmud and Midrash contain Cabbalist information.<br><br> ("Ancient Oriental and Jewish Secret Doctrines", Leipzig, 1805.) Jakob Frank (1726-1791) was the most frightening phenomenon in Jewish history, according to the Jewish professor Gershom G. Scholem. His actions were totally immoral.<br><br> Rabbi Marvin S. Antelman shows in his book "To Eliminate the Opiate" (New York, 1974) that there was a clear connection between Frankism and Weishaupt's Illuminism. The goal of the Frankists was to work in secret to establish Jewish world supremacy.<br><br> Professor Scholem has clearly documented that they achieved extensive political power. Jakob Frank (actually Leibowicz) was born in 1726, in Polish Galicia. He officially converted to Catholicism but this was just camouflage.<br><br> Jakob Frank was jailed in 1760 for continuing to teach the Cabbala (Zohar) and for practising secret Jewish rituals. In 1773, the Russians attacked the region of Poland where Frank was held prisoner. He was released and moved to Offenbach (near Frankfurt am Main) in Germany where he began to lead a luxurious and wild life.<br><br> His deeds were evil, his personality nefarious. This information comes from Professor Gershom G. Scholem's books "Cabbala" (New York and Scarborough, 1974), Sabbatai Zevi" (New Jersey, 1973) and "The Messianic Idea in Judaism" (New York, 1971).<br><br> Jakob Frank summed up his doctrine in his book "The Words of the Lord". He asserted that the creator God was not the same as the one who had revealed himself to the 22 Israelites. He believed God was evil.<br><br> Frank proclaimed himself as the true Messiah. He vowed not to tell the truth, rejected every moral law, and declared that the only way to a new society was through the total destruction of the present civilisation. Murder, rape, incest and the drinking of blood were perfectly acceptable actions and necessary rituals.<br><br> Frank was one of those refractory Jews who worshipped devils. The extremist Jews were particularly fond of a devil called Sammael. (C.<br><br> M. Ekbohrn, "100 000 frammande ord" / "100 000 Foreign Words", Stockholm, 1936, p. 1173.) Joseph Johann Adam Weishaupt was born on the 6th of February 1748 in Ingolstadt, by the Danube, in Bavaria, into an assimilated Jewish family.<br><br> (Pouget de Saint Andres, "Les auteurs caches de la revolution francaise", p. 16.) His father was a professor at the University of Ingolstadt. ("The Trail of the Serpent", Hawthorne, 1936, p.<br><br> 68.) He was educated in a Jesuit monastery and studied law, literature, and atheist philosophy. In 1773, the twenty-five-year-old Weishaupt left the Jesuit Order. This may have been because he had developed his independent ideology, but the subsequent dissolution of the Jesuit Order in 1773 by Pope Clement XIV may also have been a factor.<br><br> The Jesuit Order in France, Spain, Portugal, Naples and Austria was dissolved. A few years later, Weishaupt's "Perfektibilist" Order began to work against the Roman Catholic Church. In 1814, however, the Jesuit Order was re-established and through new infiltrations became more powerful than ever before.<br><br> In 1775, Professor Weishaupt became a member of the lodge Theodor zum guten Rat within eclectic freemasonry. Later, Weishaupt was to use this foothold in Munich to allow his Illuminati to infiltrate all the other Masonic lodges, due to the fact that he wielded great influence over the lodge through its Grand Master, Professor Franz Benedict (Xaver) von Baader, who had joined the Illuminati. It was Baron Adolf von Knigge (born 16th October 1752 in Breden- beck, died 6th May 1796 in Bremen), Adam Weishaupt's closest collaborator, who later helped him to 23 gain entrance to different Masonic organisations.<br><br> (Pat Brooks, "The Return of the Puritans", North Carolina, 1976, pp. 68-69.) In 1777, he received the highest degree of the Knights Templar (Knight of Cyprus) in Hanau. The 27-year- old Knigge joined the Illuminati in Frankfurt in 1780 under the alias of Philo (the original Philo was a Jewish scholar).<br><br> The Illuminati began to work especially actively after the entrance of Adolf von Knigge in July 1779. Baron von Knigge also wrote the book "Concerning Association with People". He brought together many powerful men.<br><br> It was largely thanks to Philo that the organisation spread through the whole of Germany. Both financial and sexual favours were used to gain control of people in high places. In time, the Illuminati won control of every Masonic order in the world.<br><br> Important financiers joined the organisation: Speyer, Schuster, Stern and others. The Jews had therefore gained a very powerful position. Their base of operations was Frankfurt am Main.<br><br> 24 In Hamburg, a powerful Jewish-Cabbalist family grew forth. Their name was (Samuel Moses) Warburg and they also joined this conspiracy of world supremacy. The Jesuits had taught Weishaupt much, not least their doubtful morals.<br><br> He encouraged his closest collaborators to use the lie as a tool and to avoid giving the public any true explanations. The leaders of the Illuminati saw to it that their most dangerous opponents and others who might be a threat to the secrets of the Order were poisoned. (Gerald B.<br><br> Winrod, "Adam Weishaupt - a Human Devil".) 25 Weishaupt got his wife's sister pregnant and, not being able to pay 50 marks for an illegal operation, he unsuccessfully tried to bring about an abortion by the use of drugs. A boy was born on the 30th of January 1784. Later, Weishaupt suddenly became rich...<br><br> In 1777, the Illuminati began to co-operate with all the Masonic lodges (especially the Grand Orient) in order to infiltrate them. The Duke of Brunswick, Grand Master of Germany, said in 1794 that the Masonic lodges were controlled by the Illuminati. When Weishaupt became a member of the Grand Orient, the lodge was backed financially by Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812), according to the British historian Nesta Webster.<br><br> Bernard Lazar, a well-known Jewish author, wrote in his "L'Anti- semitisme", in 1894, that exclusively Cabbalist Jews surrounded Weis- haupt. Confiscated documents show that of 39 Illuminati holding lesser leading positions, 17 were Jews (i.e., 40%). The higher one looked in ranks, the larger was the percentage of Jews.<br><br> Even the fact that the Illuminati headquarters in Ingolstadt were later converted into a synagogue was symbolic of this conspiracy. Lazar stated that all these Jews became the agents of revolution because they had "revolutionary souls". There were four especially important Jews in the Illuminati leadership: Hartwig (Naphtali Herz) Wessely, Moses Mendelssohn, the banker Daniel von Itzig (1723-1799) and the businessman David Friedlander.<br><br> (La Vieille France, 31st of March, 1921.) All of the initiated had taken a vow "to eternal silence and undeviating loyalty and total submission to the Order ". Each member had to promise: "I pledge to count what is best for the Order as my own best, I am ready to serve it with my personal fortune, my honour and my blood... the friends and enemies of the Order shall also become my friends and enemies...<br><br> " Lastly, each new member was warned: "If you are a traitor and a perjurer, then know that the brothers shall take up arms against you. Do not hope to flee or to find a place to hide. Wherever you are, shame, contempt and the wrath 26 of the brothers shall pursue and torment you to your innermost entrails." Most members were led to believe that the lower degrees of mystery they had reached were the highest.<br><br> Few members had been informed about the true purpose of the Order. The Illuminati's codex was presented in Masonic terms and prescribed lies, treachery, violence, torture and murder in order to reach all its goals. Many members believed themselves to be working for an improvement of the world.<br><br> They never guessed that Weishaupt's true purpose was to establish Novus Ordo Seclorum, a global program for world domination. The Protestant princes and rulers in Germany were well disposed to Weishaupt's official plan to destroy the Catholic Church and they sought membership in his Order. Through these men Weishaupt gained control over the Masonic Orders, into which he and his other Jewish cronies were initiated in 1777.<br><br> To prevent the rulers from understanding the true aims of the Illuminati, he forestalled their contact with the higher degrees. During the year following its founding, the Order was spread exclusively through southern Bavaria. Later, it gained a foothold also in Frankfurt am Main, Eichstadt and other cities, according to "Vagledning for frimurare" / "Guidance for Freemasons", Stockholm, 1906, p.<br><br> 166. Officially, the Illuminati were supposed to spread virtue and wisdom, which was to subdue evil and stupidity. They wanted to make great discoveries in all branches of science.<br><br> The Illuminati were to be cultivated into noble, eminent people, also according to "Guidance for Freemasons". In time, the following men joined the Illuminati: the bookseller and writer Christoph Friedrich Nicolai (1733- 1811), whose alias became Lucian, Duke Ernst von Gotha, Heinrich Pestalozzi, whose pedagogic system Lenin's wife, Nadezhda Krupskaya, began applying in Soviet Russia, Duke Karl August, Baron Herbert 27 von Dalberg, Count Stolberg, Baron Tomas Franz Maria von Bassus (whose alias became Hannibal on the 13th December 1778), the author, folklorist and philosopher Johann Gottfried Herder (1744-1803), the Jewish author and prominent freemason Johann Christoph Bode (1730- 1793), whose pseudonym was Amelius, Ferdinand of Brunswick, Professor Semmer from Ingolstadt, the philo- sopher Franz Baader from Munich and others. Adam Weishaupt began to work especially closely with the Jewish Masonic leader Moses Mendelssohn (1729-1786).<br><br> Mendelssohn became, so to speak, Weishaupt's invisible guide. Moses Mendelssohn was officially known by the Jews as a poor writer who became one of Germany's fore- most philosophers during the "age of enlightenment". He called himself a philosopher and a cultural personality.<br><br> Officially, Mendelssohn's aim was to "modernise" Judaism so that the public might accept the Jews when they ostensibly gave up Talmudism and "assimilated" to the western culture. The Illuminatus Mirabeau wrote a book in 1787 about Moses Mendelssohn's political "reforms", to spread even more fantastical myths about him. In secret, however, Mendelssohn encouraged the Jews to faithfully keep to the beliefs of their fathers.<br><br> He led the Illuminati in Berlin. The First Disclosures From 1781 on, the resistance to Adam Weishaupt's movement started to grow. The first official attack on the Illuminati was made in 1783, 215 years ago.<br><br> A rejected candidate, the bookseller Johann Baptist Strobl from Munich, was the first to raise the alarm. Weishaupt immediately declared that the man was an uninformed slanderer, rough in manners and speech. But others came after Strobl: Professor Westenrieder and Danzer also warned about the Illuminati's true activity, according to "Vagledning for frimurare" / "Guidance for Freemasons", Stockholm, 1906, p.<br><br> 166. The Duchess Maria Anna and professor Joseph Utzschneider at the Military Academy in Munich (who had left the Illuminati in 1783) also came out with public warnings. 28 In 1784 the Order already had 3000 members spread over France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Hungary and Italy.<br><br> Eventually, several members left: Zaupser and professors Grunberg, Renner and Cosandey from Munich. On the 1st July 1784, even von Knigge gave up all his responsibilities within the Order due to a conflict with Weis- haupt. The latter, though he totally accepted Philo's (von Knigge's) new, polished plan of reforms, still wanted to make additions and changes here and there.<br><br> Philo was later to return. Strobl's company began publishing several polemical pieces aimed at the Illuminati. It is sufficient to mention: "Babo, Gemalde aus dem menschlichen Leben" ("Babo, Impressions from Human Life").<br><br> These publications worked with planned effect. When a more conservative and patriotic regent, Duke Charles Philipp Theodore (1724- 1799), reached power in Bavaria, he issued a ban on secret societies on 22 June 1784. The Illuminati and the freemasons closed their lodges.<br><br> The freemasons sought to defend themselves publicly. The Illuminati even offered to present all their papers and allow themselves to be subjected to public trial but nothing helped. On the 11 February 1785, Weishaupt was discharged and forbidden to live in Ingolstadt and Munich.<br><br> At the same time, the university was informed that Weishaupt would be arrested. On 16 February, he went underground and was hidden by his Illuminati brother Joseph Martin, who worked as a locksmith. A few days later he fled from Ingolstadt to Nuremberg dressed in the working clothes of a craftsman.<br><br> He stayed in Nuremberg a short while and then travelled on to the free city of Regensburg where he continued his activities, but then a stroke of fate occurred that put the police on the Illuminati's tracks. (Countess Sofia Toll, "The Brothers of the Night", Moscow, 2000, p. 291.) During the inquiry, more and more terrible evidence against the Illuminati appeared, but they continued their activities despite the ban.<br><br> Therefore, on March 2nd 1785, a 29 further decree was issued which made possible the confiscation of the Illuminati's assets. On 20 July 1785, the courier of the Illuminati Jakob Lanz (who worked as a priest) was hit by lightning in Regensburg and died. Weishaupt was together with him.<br><br> Lanz intended to travel on to Berlin and Silesia and received his last instructions from Weishaupt before he died. He had sewn in a list of Illuminati and some compromising papers in his priest's robe. Weishaupt did not know about this and became the victim of his own conspiracy.<br><br> (Countess Sofia Toll, "The Brothers of the Night", Moscow, 2000, p. 291.) The local police found other important documents at Lanz' house, including detailed instructions for the planned French revolution. Some of the papers were addressed to the Grand Master of the lodge Grand Orient in Paris.<br><br> Everything was handed over to the Bavarian government and on the 4th August 1785 a new ban on secret societies was issued. On 31 August, an order to arrest Weishaupt was issued. A price was put on Adam Weishaupt's head in Bavaria.<br><br> Weishaupt fled to Gotha, where the llluminatus, Ernst, Grand Duke of Saxe-Gotha, could protect him. He gave Weishaupt the title of Privy Councillor, gave him sanctuary. Weishaupt stayed in Gotha for the rest of his life.<br><br> He died on the 18th November 1830. A bust of him stands on display in the Germanisches Museum in Nuremberg. The police began to look for known members of the Order.<br><br> The Illuminati had managed to infiltrate many important posts in society. For this reason the police investigation was very slow. The raid on Zwack's house, which had a direct link to the secret Illuminati documents found at Lanz' house, was only made one year and two months after Lanz was struck by lightning, on 11 and 12 October 1786.<br><br> On the llth-12th October 1786, they searched the house of Dr Franz Xaver Zwack (Cato) in Landshut where the Illuminati kept their most important papers. In the following year Baron Bassus' (Hannibal's) castle in Sandersdorf was also searched and the police confiscated 30 even more papers concerning the Illuminati's conspiracy against the whole world. In these documents, which I carefully studied in the summer of 1986 in the Ingolstadt archives, plans for a global revolution were laid out and these papers clearly stated that this destructive operation was to be the work of secret societies.<br><br> Several important men in Ingolstadt and Bavaria lost their posts, some were even imprisoned or expelled from the country - but some of those involved were so powerful that they were spared retribution. The freemasons did not believe they were given a fair trial, as no defence was permitted. In the autumn of 1786, the Elector Karl Theodor demanded that the Illuminati cease their activities.<br><br> They did not. In 1786, two remarkable books about the Illuminati were published: "Drei merkwurdige Aussagen" (in which Professors Griinberg, Cosandey und Renner testified) and "Grosse Absichten des Ordens der Illuminaten" ("Great Purposes of the Order of the Illuminati") with Professor Joseph Utzschneider's testimony. After a lengthy inquiry, the Elector ordered two works containing confiscated secret documents to be printed under the titles: "Einige Originalschriften des Illuminaten- Ordens" and "Nachtrag von weitern Originalschriften" ("Some Original Documents of the Illuminati Order" and "Supplement of Further Original Documents").<br><br> These books were sent to the governments in Paris, London and St. Petersburg, but were not taken seriously (until it was too late). Johann Baptist Strobl also printed a new collection of documents concerning the Illuminati in 1787.<br><br> According to "Guidance for Freemasons", Weishaupt, von Knigge, Bode and the other "most distinguished Illuminati" were noble-minded, honest and well-intentioned men who aspired towards goodness and justice. Some truly lofty cultural personalities allowed themselves to be fooled by the skilful Illuminati propaganda. Adam Weishaupt, as a skilled propagandist, had previously written the books "An Apology for the Illuminati" (1786), "Das Verbesserte System der Illuminaten" / "The Improved System of the 31 Illuminati" (1788), "Spartacus und Philo", (1794), and others.<br><br> When the Illuminati were banned on 4 August 1785, Zwack fled to Augsburg and from there to Weslar. After the death of the Elector, Zwack returned to Bavaria, where he was reinstated as a civil servant. Von Knigge travelled to Bremen, where he died as a British officer on 6 May 1796.<br><br> Several other members were dismissed from their posts. All according to the Grand Master of the Illuminati, Leopold Engel. Even the great poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe became a freemason in 1780 and joined the Illuminati somewhat later in the 1780s.<br><br> His alias within the Order was Abaris. ("Geschichte des Illuminaten-Ordens" / "History of the Order of the Illuminati" by Leopold Engel, Berlin, 1906, pp. 355-356).<br><br> But eventually he was able to see through their deception. The Illuminatus Goethe wrote to Bode, a fellow member, on the 22nd June 1784: "Believe me, our moral world is undermined by sub-terranean tunnels, basements and sewers, like a large town usually is, without anyone usually thinking of their connections. It is comprehensible to me or any other enlightened person if smoke sometimes rises from a crack or if strange voices are heard...<br><br> " The Murders of Schiller and Mozart The great poet and playwright Friedrich von Schiller moved to Mannheim on the 27th July 1783. In June 1784 Christian Gottfried Korner (17561831), an important Illuminatus, sent Schiller a letter suggesting he join the Illuminati. Korner saw to it that all Schiller's debts were paid off and following this, he joined the Order.<br><br> An Illuminatus was bound by the codex of the Order: "I shall perform an action, if asked by the Order, which I may not consent to, inasmuch as it (when seen as a whole) would truly be wrong. Furthermore, even if it might seem so from a certain point of view, it would cease to be improper and wrong if it served as a means to thereby achieve blessedness or the final aim of the whole." This 32 quote comes from the documents of the Order which were taken during the police search of Baron Bassus' castle in Sandersdorf and later published under the collective title "Nachtrag von weitern Originalschriften" in Munich, 1787. Two defectors from the Order - Professors Cosandey and Renner - also confirmed in April 1785 that an Illuministic principle was "the ends justify the means".<br><br> It was only later that Schiller was able to see through the deception. Deception and blackmail were the order's ways to reach its aims. Weis- haupt had advised his closest Illuminati brothers: "Devote yourselves to the art of deception, the art of disguising yourselves, of masking yourselves, spying on others and perceiving their innermost thoughts." To make sure that the secrets of the Order were not leaked, Weishaupt created a secret police corps within the Order which he called the "insinuating brothers".<br><br> These worked in the same manner as the Bolshevik's Cheka and its successors: denunciation, provocation, blackmail and terrorism. The "insinuating brothers" acted with full force during the reign of terror which is called the "Great French Revolution", which was largely the work of Illuminati agents. Following the French Revolution, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe declared his detestation of it to Eckermann.<br><br> He said that all sudden changes brought about by violence were repugnant to him because they went against the order of nature ("Goethe" by Karl Vietor, Stockholm, 1953, p. 100). Naturally, Friedrich von Schiller could not suspect that Heinrich Voss, a young doctor who took care of him, was one of the "insinuating brothers" who reported everything he heard and saw to Weishaupt.<br><br> Schiller, Pestalozzi and several other Illuminati from Germany were given French citizenship as "prominent foreigners" in 1792. Schiller read about this in the newspaper Moniteur. After seeing through the Illuminati's evil nature, Schiller planned to write a play called "Demetrius", the working title of which became "The Bloodbath in Moscow".<br><br> This 33 play was to uncover some of the atrocities behind the scenes of those in power. Heinrich Voss reported this to Weishaupt who wished to stop this play at any cost. Fortunately for the Illuminati, Schiller died after a long illness at around six o'clock on the 9th of May 1805.<br><br> Hermann Ahlwardt claims in his book "Mehr Licht" / "More Light" (1925, pp. 60-69) that Schiller was murdered by the Illuminati. A collective of German and foreign experts (including Sten Forshufvud from Gothenburg and Professor Hamilton Smith from Glasgow) found airsenic in samples of Schiller's hair.<br><br> The 45-year-old Schiller's work was never completed; instead he ended up in a mass grave. (Henning Fikentscher, "The Latest Developments in Research of Schiller's Mortal Remains".) On 5 December 1784, the freemasons asked the brilliant Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to become a freemason. He joined the lodge Zur Wohltatigkeit (To Charity) on 14 December 1784.<br><br> He was also a member of another lodge, Zur wahren Eintracht (To True Concord). This was a double lodge. Soon Mozart reached the very highest degree, the 33rd.<br><br> Mozart wrote many compositions for Masonic ceremonies. The most important freemasons in Vienna were Illuminati at the same time. In 1783, 36 of the 83 brothers in Zur wahren Eintracht were Illuminati.<br><br> There were also many conspirators among the members of To Charity. Mozart's powerful friend, Baron Gottfried van Swieten was an Illuminatus. Also his closest friend Count August von Hatzfeld was an Illuminatus.<br><br> In his obituary notice for Hatzfeld in 1787, the local leader of the llluminati, Christian Gottlob Neefe, praised him in Magazin der Musik. Neefe was Beethoven's teacher. It was for this reason that Beet- hoven became a freemason and gained close ties to many llluminati, including Gemmingen, who had helped Mozart in Mannheim and recruited him as a member of To Charity.<br><br> Mozart was impressed by the official intentions of the llluminati. He did not know any more details. He had no idea what his influential friends really intended.<br><br> There is no 34 clear information about whether Mozart even knew that his friends were members of the subversive llluminati. They only revealed their membership to those whom they might be able to recruit. Adam Weishaupt had taught: "To some of these freemasons we shall not even reveal that we have anything more than what the freemasons have...<br><br> All those who are not suitable for the work shall remain in the Masonic lodge and advance there without knowing anything about the additional system." ("Einige Originalschriften des Illuminatenordens", Munich, 1787, p. 300.) In December 1785, the llluminati's activities in Vienna were prohibited. The llluminati were forced to leave their lodges.<br><br> Despite the ban, they continued to act as ordinary freemasons. They went over to The Crowned Hope. The llluminati Ignaz von Born, Joseph von Sonnefells and Otto von Gemmingen founded a new lodge, The Truth, the Grand Master of which was Born.<br><br> The llluminati believe that they preach the ultimate truth. On 14 January 1786, Mozart joined the new lodge The Crowned Hope. But he was not present at the opening ceremony and later he seldom attended their meetings.<br><br> During this period, Mozart seldom wrote Masonic music. Mozart belonged to the society where the llluminati still dominated. Only during the last year of his life, 1791, did he produce new pieces of music for the freemasons.<br><br> This music contained secret codes and moods. Mozart desired true friends. This was why he became a freemason.<br><br> All his friends were freemasons. As a very sociable person, Mozart could not be alone and therefore needed friends to associate with. It has been observed that Mozart, due to his membership in Masonic lodges, found it easier to succeed and to make a name for himself in Europe, since high-ranking Masonic brothers supported him.<br><br> Nearly half of the members of To True Harmony were aristocrats who helped Mozart, for example Esterhazy. Mozart's publishers were also freemasons: Pasquale Artaria, Cristophe Torricella and Franz Anton Hoffmeister. 35 Mozart could always count on the brotherly hospitality of the freemasons, and during his sojourns abroad, he always received economic support and free lodgings.<br><br> During his travels 1787-1791, the freemasons in Prague and other places helped Mozart in various ways. There is written evidence which proves this. Friends among the freemasons played a crucial role in aiding Mozart financially: Lichnowsky, Franz Hofdemel and Michael Puchberg were among his most important creditors.<br><br> Mozart, in his turn, helped other freemasons by acquiring loans for them. In December 1787, Mozart was appointed the imperial chamber composer. This gave him requisitions for greater operas.<br><br> The Illuminati had become a state within the state. Despite all the prohibitions, they continued with their subversive activities against society. At that time, people lacked experience and resources to protect themselves against freemasonry, which was under the influence of the Illuminati.<br><br> The prominent Austrian composer Franz Schubert was not a freemason and he died poor and unappreciated. As a gifted man, Mozart finally managed to see through the Illuminati's evil, despite the fact that it appeared to be an angel of light. He intended to protect society by founding a secret society with several of his friends, Die Grotte ("The Cave").<br><br> Mozart was well aware of the deadly risk he was taking. Already in April 1787, he wrote in a letter to his father that death was actually the friend of man and that he could never lie down to sleep without thinking that he, despite his youth, might not see another day. (Maynard Solomon, "Mozart", Stockholm, 1995.) He wished to expose the magic and the conspiracy of the freemasons to the public.<br><br> For this purpose he intended to use his opera "Die Zauberflote" ("The Magic Flute"), where Sarastro's prototype was the Grand Master of the freemasons, Ignaz von Born. Mozart had a perfect memory. Once he had heard a melody, he could play it again later without making any mistakes.<br><br> "The Magic Flute" (1791) contained many revelations about the secrets of freemasonry. He used the pyramid of the Illuminati, the all- seeing eye, the temple and other secret symbols. These 36 metaphors were later removed.<br><br> Mozart also used musical means of expression by contrasting lyrical and tragic themes, elegance and folklore, fantastic details and the solid atmosphere of the orchestra. The opera premiered in the autumn of 1791. The Illuminati could not forgive Mozart for this.<br><br> "Requiem" was requisitioned from him anonymously in order to celebrate his own death. He was also paid in advance. The freemasons poisoned the object of their hatred slowly.<br><br> "Requiem" was finished up to the second-to- last row of verse: lacrymosa dies ilia. Sussmayr finished the opus. Hermann Ahlwardt claimed in his book "Mehr Licht!" ("More Light") that Mozart was murdered.<br><br> He died on 5 December 1791, precisely seven years after his initiation into the Masonic lodge. Salieri was later made the scapegoat. Hermann Wagener's "Staats- und Gesellschaftslexikon" (volume 18, 1865) confirmed that Mozart was poisoned.<br><br> In 1990, several doctors tried to claim that Mozart died of a kidney disease. (Dagens Nyheter, 19 September 1990.) But if he had died a natural death, the freemasons would not have taken away Mozart's body to prevent an autopsy after he died, or laid him in a grave for the poor together with quicklime. If Mozart had been faithful to the freemasons, he would have been buried with great honours.<br><br> His hypocritical "Masonic friends" wept crocodile tears. If "The Magic Flute" had been accepted, those in power would not have sent Johann Emanuel Schikaneder, author of the opera's libretto, to a lunatic asylum, where he died in 1812. In Austria, freemasonry was forbidden in the middle of the 1790s.<br><br> Society managed to keep its ban on this subversive movement until 1918, when the freemasons in Austria came to power with the aid of the false socialist doctrine. The freemasons continue to smear and depreciate Mozart today (for example Milos Forman in his film "Amadeus"). The Illuminati as Infiltrators 37 The Illuminati moved freely within the many secret societies of the time seeking to utilise the liberal ideology of freemasonry as a bait for those who lacked knowledge of its true purposes.<br><br> "All Illuminati are freemasons but far from all freemasons are Illuminati," stated Professors Cosandey and Renner from Munich in their testimonies in April 1785. Only a minority was allowed to reach the highest mystery degrees. Only those few knew of the true intentions of the order.<br><br> Cosandey and Renner, together with several other witnesses, claimed that "there was constant talk of the purpose" without any explanation of what this was. Those of the lower degrees ("useful idiots") were only to obey, without understanding why. Weishaupt's plan for seizing power was ingeniously simple.<br><br> The moulders of public opinion (priests, writers, public officials) were to be made obedient tools, whereupon they would, in Weishaupt's words "surround the princes". As "advisors" they were to influence political decisions in favour of the Illuminati's aims. When entering the Order, the new brothers had vowed: "I shall never use my position or post against another brother." This corrupt group loyalty did not relate to the brothers as individuals, however; they were only tools for the invisible powers within the Order.<br><br> It could just as easily be turned against any particular brother if the "purpose" (i.e., Weishaupt himself) decreed it. So the brothers of the lower degrees were made to provide information (on printed forms) each month on their own actions and those of fellow brothers (the so-called Quibus licet). The leaders of the Order compiled information from these "confessions" which they could use later against any refractory brothers.<br><br> Weishaupt also encouraged the Illuminati to steal or copy secret and government documents. The Order needed these
