Freemasonry is a religion of works. One of its many symbols is the balance. Masons believe they will be judged by their works, based upon the balance of right and wrong in their lives. In this Picture Book you will see the true nature of Freemasonry. In II Cor. 11:13-15 we read of the "works" religions: "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." ...

In order to fully understand the relationship of Freemasonry and those who are Jews one must first understand something about the origins of Freemasonry. There is little doubt that the community that lived at Qumran was an Essene community. However, modern scholarship is increasingly recognizing that the Essenes were a leadership group, may be best described as the Third Degree, of the Nazorean Movement within Judaism of the First Century of the modern era. Professor Israel Finklestein is clear on the subject when he says that the Nazorean Movement and the Essenes are one group. The Nazorean Movement had three degrees of increasing commitment to their order just as do the Freemasons. They admitted men and had a separate organization for women, keeping the two separate. They would admit no one who was not of age as a Jew, who was not sober in his personal life, who was not an able-bodied worker, or who was too old. They professed a profound belief in G-d and understood Him in a way that was proto-gnostic in its commitment to the concept of Light and Darkness. The Nazorean Movement left behind books which were hidden both in the Temple in Jerusalem and in caves near their Qumran headquarters. The Nazorean Movement disagreed strongly with the rest of Judaism on the importance of the Temple. For the Nazoreans, the Temple was not a physical building, but a spiritual building composed of the true believers of the House of Israel. The Nazoreans were more liberal in their rules for conversion, allowing Gentiles full participation once they had converted. The Nazoreans awaited the coming of the Messiah and knew that the Temple would descend from Heaven fully made at the time of the Messianic age. The Nazoreans wrote the three principle books of the Kabbalah: Sefer Yetzirah, Ha Bahir, and Ha Zohar. The Nazorean books were found by the Knights Templar and the ideas that they expressed seriously challenged the beliefs of the day. It was for that reason that the Popes limited the knowledge they possessed to only the highest members of the order, the full Knights. When the Templar order was pushed underground, the priestly members of the order and the Templar Corps of Engineers were amalgamated into the Guild of Stone Masons in England and Scotland and their teachings as chaplains of the amalgamated Guild became the basis of Freemasonry. It was these teachings that attracted nonoperatives into the Guild and from the Guild Lodges eventually Freemasonry appeared in England. Jews were actively involved in the beginnings of Freemasonry in America. There is evidence they were among those who established Masonry in seven of the original thirteen states: Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia. There were three Jews involved among the 10 men that formed the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite in Charleston, South Carolina in 1801. There were several other Jews who held the masonic titles in the late 1700's: Solomon Bush in Pennsylvania, Joseph Myers in Maryland and later in South Carolina, and Abraham Forst of Philadelphia in Virginia in 1781. Another Jewish Grand Master was Moses Seixas in Rhode Island from 1791 until 1800. There were many other American Jewish Masons in early American history, including one in George Washington's original Fredericksburg Lodge. There is evidence that Jews, including rabbis, continued to be involved in the Masonic movement in the United States. There have been at least 51 Jewish American Grand Masters. Today there are many Jews active in Masonry in America and other countries. Israel has about 60 Masonic lodges with 3,000 members. Jews had also been involved to a small extent in the formation of modern Freemasonry in the early 1700's in England. Until then Jews were not permitted to participate in many of the ordinary activities of life. Then the Enlightenment concept of the universality of all people brought about a society where people's religious beliefs did not affect their rights as citizens. Jews were gradually permitted to exercise the rights of citizenship and to pursue their lives as they wished. Many Jews viewed joining Freemasonry as part of their "emancipation" from the old legal and social exclusions. Modern Masonry was as much a product of the Enlightenment as the emancipation of Jews. Many society leaders were Freemasons and if Jews could join this fraternity that would prove they were being accepted. They could also use the opportunities presented by their participation in a social organization with Christians to prove the two could prosper by their association. Freemasonry's philosophy of the brotherhood of all people indicated Masonry would accept Jews as members. ...

Introduction. My father, Martin Bessel, was a Freemason from 1946 until his death in 1977. He was brought up in a religious Jewish family and he was orthodox in following more of the traditional rules than most Jews in the United States. He was very proud to be a Jew, as well as a Mason and an American. I was somewhat surprised, because I recall hearing rumors that Freemasonry required members to say or do things in accordance with the Christian religion and that it was not really an American institution, but I knew my father would not belong to an organization that had these characteristics. Years later, on the tenth anniversary of my father's death, I was initiated into Freemasonry and am now an active member of several lodges, plus the Scottish and York Rites and the Shrine.1 I am trying to learn more about Masonry, just as I continue to read about my heritage as a Jew and as an American. The reasons are the same, because I am proud to belong to each of these groups and to support the ideals for which they stand. ...

Are Jews satanic ? Most Christians believe that the Jews follow only the Old Testament of the Holy Bible and reject the New Testament. The truth is their "real bible" is The Talmud. The Jewish book "The Mizbeach" states that "there is nothing superior to the 'Holy Talmud'. The Talmud is made of 63 books and is often printed in about 18 large volumes. The Talmud was written by Rabbinical sages between the years 200 AD and 500 AD. While Christians follow the Twelve Commandments, the Jews follow the 613 Commandments of The Talmud. The BIG SECRET is -just what are these commandments of the Jews? Eight Catholic Popes condemned the Talmud. Martin Luther, founder to the Protestant Church ordered it burned! Pope Clement VIII declared: "The impious Talmudic, Cabalistic and other wicked books of the Jews are hereby entirely condemned and they must always remain condemned and prohibited and this law must be perpetually observed." 1.1 What The Talmud Rules About Christians The Talmud holds that only Jews are true human beings and Gentiles are the "goyim" who are on the level with cattle and other animals. The following are shocking but exact quotes from the various books of "The Talmud." Aboda Sarah 37a: “A Gentile girl who is three years old can be violated.” Abhodah Zarah 2a T: "Carry on trade with non-Jews, if they have to pay money for it." Abodah Zarah 22a-22b: “Gentiles prefer sex with cows.” Abodah Zara 26b: "Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed." Abodah Zarah 36b: “Gentile girls are in a state of niddah (filth) from birth.” Babba Bathra 54b: "Non-Jewish property belongs to the Jew who uses it first." Baba Kamma 37b: “The gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has "exposed their money to Israel”." Baba Kamma II 3a: "Jews may use lies ("subterfuges") to circumvent a Gentile.” Baba Kamma 113a: "Every Jew is allowed to use lies and perjury to bring a non-Jew to ruin." Baba Necia 114,6: "The Jews are human beings, but the nations of the world are not human beings but beasts." Choschen Ham 156, 5 Hagah: "The Jew is allowed to go to the Akum (Gentile), lead him on, do business with him, to deceive him and take his money. For the wealth of the Akum is to be regarded as common roperty and belongs to the first who can get it." Choschen Ham 183, 7: "If two Jews have deceived a non-Jew, they have to split the profit." Choschen Ham 388, 15: "If it can be proven that someone has given the money of Israelites to the Goyim, a way must be found after prudent consideration to wipe him off the face of the earth." Choschen Ham 266, 1: "A Jew may keep anything he finds which belongs to the Akum (Gentile). For he who returns lost property (to Gentiles) sins against the law by increasing the power of the transgressors of the law. It is praiseworthy, however, to return lost property if it is done to honor the name of God, namely if by so doing Christians will praise the Jews and look upon them as honorable people." Erubin 21b: "Whosoever disobeys the rabbis deserves death and will be punished by being boiled in hot excrement in hell." Erubin 43b: "When the Messiah comes, all will be slaves of the Jews." Gad. Shas. 2:2: “A Jew may violate but not marry a non-Jewish girl.” Gittin 57a: "Jesus is in hell and is being punished by being boiled in semen. Christians are boiled in dung." Hilkkoth Akum XI or Z1: “Do not save Goyim in danger of death.” Hilkkoth Akum XI: “Show no mercy to the Goyim.” Iore Dea 337, 1: "As you replace lost cows and donkeys, so you shall replace dead non-Jews." Kethuboth 3b: "Sexual intercourse with non-Jews is like sexual intercourse with animals." Kerithuth 6b page 78, Jebhammoth 61a: "Just Jews are humans, the Non-Jews are no humans, but cattle." Libbre David 37: "To communicate anything with a Goy about our religious relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if the Goyim knew what we teach about them, they would kill us openly. Libbre David 37: “If a Jew be called upon to explain any part of the rabbinic books, he ought to give only a false explanation. Who ever will violate this order shall be put to death.” Midrasch Talpioth 225: "The non-Jews have been created to serve the Jews as slaves." Moed Kattan 17a: “If a person is tempted to do evil he should go to a city where he is not known, dress in black clothes, cover his head in black, and do what his heart desires so that God's name will not be desecrated.” Nedarim 23b: “He who desires that none of his vows made during the year be valid, let him stand at the beginning of the year and declare, 'Every vow which I may make in the future shall be null.' His vows are then invalid.” Nidrasch Talpioth, p. 225-L: “Jehovah created the non-Jew in human form so that the Jew would not have to be served by beasts. The non-Jew is consequently an animal in human form, and condemned to serve the Jew day and night.” Number 31:17-18: "You must put to death every boy and all the women who have ever had sex. But do not kill the young women who have never had sex. You may keep them for yourselves." Orach Chaiim 57, 6a: "The non-Jews have to be avoided, even more than sick pigs." P'sachim, fol. 113, col. 2: “Five things Canaan thought his sons: Love one another, love pillage, love excess, hate your masters and never tell the truth” Sanhedrin 57a: “A Jew need not pay a gentile (“Cuthean”) the wages owed him for work.” Sanhedrin 57a: “When a Jew murders a gentile (“Cuthean”), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep.” Sanhedrin 59a: "Murdering Goyim is like killing a wild animal." Sanhedrin 59a: "A Goy (Gentile) who pries into the law (Talmud) is guilty of death." Sanhedrin 90a: "Those who read the New Testament ("uncanonical books") will have no portion in the world to come." Sanhedrin 105ab: "Jesus fornicated with his jackass." Schabouth Hag. 6b: "Jews may swear falsely by use of subterfuge wording." Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 156: “When a Jew has a Gentile in his clutches, another Jew may go to the same Gentile, lend him money and in turn deceive him, so that the Gentile shall be ruined. For the property of a Gentile, according to our law, belongs to no one, and the first Jew that passes has full right to seize it.” Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348: “All property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which, consequently, is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples.” Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 388: “It is permitted to kill a Jewish denunciator everywhere. It is permitted to kill him even before he denounces.” Schulchan Aruch, Johre Deah, 122: “A Jew is forbidden to drink from a glass of wine which a Gentile has touched, because the touch has made the wine unclean.” Seph. Jp., 92, 1: “God has given the Jews power over the possessions and blood of all nations.” Shabbath 116a: "Jews must destroy the books of the Christians, i.e. the New Testament." Simeon Haddarsen, fol. 56-D: “When the Messiah comes every Jew will have 2800 slaves.” Sotah, 12a: "The money of the truly righteous Jew is more precious to them even than their own bodies." Talmud IV/1/113b: "The Jew is allowed to exploit the mistake of a non-Jew and to deceive him." Talmud IV/2/70b: "The Jew is allowed to practice usury on the non-Jew." Talmud IV/4/52b: "Punishable for the Jew, is just the adultery towards the wife of a Jew. The wife of the non-Jew is excluded." Talmud IV/8/4a: "God is never angry about the Jews, just about the non-Jews." Tosefta. Aboda Zara B, 5: “If a goy kills a goy or a Jew, he is responsible; but if a Jew kills a goy, he is NOT responsible.” Tosefta, Abda Zara VIII, 5: “How to interpret the word ‘robbery’. A goy is forbidden to steal, rob, or take women slaves, etc., from a goy or from a Jew. But a Jew is NOT forbidden to do all this to a goy.” Yebhamoth 11b: "Sexual intercourse with a little girl is permitted if she is of three years of age." Yebamoth 98a: “All gentile children are animals.” Zohar I, 160a or 168a: "Jews must always try to deceive Christians." Zohar II, 4b: "The birth-rate of non-Jews has to be suppressed massively." ...

FOR many years the fascinating subject of Secret Societies had engaged my attention and it had long been my intention to collect in a comprehensive work all the information that could be g'athered from numerouSj often remote, and sometimes almost inaccessible sources, concerning one of the most curious phases of the history of mankind—those secret organizations, religious, political, and social, which have existed from the most remote ages down to the present time. Before, however, I had arranged and digested my materials, a review in the " Athenseum" (No. 2196), directed my attention to the Italian work " II Mondo Secreto," by Signer De Castro, whom I have since then had the pleasure of meeting at Milan. I procured the book, and intended at first to give a translation of it, but though I began as a translator, my labours speedily assumed a more independent form. Much, I found, had to be omitted from an original coloured by a certain political bias, and somewhat too indulgent to various Italian political sects, who, in many instances, were scarcely more than hordes of brigands. Much, on the other hand, had to be added from sources, chiefly English and German, unknown to the Italian author ; much had to be placed on a different basis and in another light; and again, many societies not mentioned by Signor De Castro had to be introduced to the reader, such as the Garduna, the Chauffeurs, Fenians, International, 0-Kee-Pa, Ku-Klux, Inquisition, Wahibees ; so that, with these additions, and the amplificar tions of sections in the original Italian, forming frequently entirely new articles, the work, as it now is presented to the English public, though in its framework retaining much of its foreign prototype, may yet claim the merit of being not only essentially original, but the most comprehensive account of Secret Societies extant in EngHsh, French, German, or Italian, the leading languages of Europe; for whatever has been written on the subject in any one of them has been consulted and put under contribution. In English there is no work that can at aU compete with it, for the small book published in 1836 by Charles Knight, and entitled, " Secret Societies of the Middle Ages," embraces four societies only. ...

JACOB BOHME. PABALLEL between Mystics and Sectaries. All secret societies have some connection with, mysticism, secret itself, delighting in mystery, as the loving soul delights in surronndiag the beloved object with mystery. Sectaries to some extent are the parents of mystics. The silent adoration of the Infinite, in which mystics delight, has its counterpart in the worship of progress, liberty, and truth, to which sectaries devote themselves. Progress, liberty, truth, are attributes of the Divine; whoso loves these attributes, loves and apprehends God. The mystics are the men of thought, the sectaries the men of action. However remote the thoughts of the former may seem from application to everyday life, from political strife, they yet have a positive influence on human belief and will. ...

So you see, my dear Coningsby, that the world is governed by very dif - ferent personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes. —Benjamin Disraeli, first Prime Minister of England, in his book Coningsby. At one time or another we've all questioned as to whether all that we see and are experiencing in our world has some sort of a rational plan behind it, because we understand now that both the Republican and Democratic Parties in America are basically run by the same people. The same money finances both sides. We now know through the work of many historians who have spent their lives working on research, that both sides of world conflicts have always been financed by the same people. And, as I've said many times before, this seems to be the method to the "madness" going on in the world. We know, of course, that we cannot depend on the truthfulness our leaders. Our leaders are "misleaders." There is a science they are following. They have their own agenda - and it does not include you. This agenda also does not include many of our politicians, who have sometimes felt helpless and spoke out as a result. In 1922, New York City Mayor John F. Hylan said, "The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which, like a giant octopus, sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen.... At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties." What I have said, however, is that they do control both parties, among many other things in the world. Conflicts require money and cooperation. World conflicts require world banks and international monetary funds. Professional groups all have fraternal orders. Doctors, attorneys, etc., have their own specific fraternal orders. In the banking world, it is the same way. They have the same fraternal order in banking and politics. However, we are not supposed to know anything about that, because that's not any of our business. That fraternal order in politics and banking has been known for many years by those on the inside. It has been referred to by different names, at different times, in different countries. The best overall name that we can confer on this fraternal order, which is running our country, politics, and monetary system, is Freemasonry. Our country, like so many before us, and like so many after us, was in fact founded by Freemasons. Freemasonry, in one form or another, has played a role in almost every government that was founded in this world. It is powerful in operation today throughout the world. However, we do want to establish first that what we are not talking about is Blue Masonry, or the Masonic Lodges in your hometown. We are not talking about the Freemasons that live across the street from you. We're talking about a worldwide fraternal organization that is powerful enough, old enough, and wise enough to operate behind all governments in the world, behind fraternal institutions, and behind international monetary systems in the world. And, yes, they are, in fact, connected. For instance, the idea that our country was founded by so many Freemasons and Rosicrucians, among others, will be consistently revealed throughout this book. We ask ourselves, "Why do we fold the American flag in a triangle?" What does the pyramid or the triangle have to do with the American system of government on our dollar bill? We must now recall that our Constitution was signed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is referred to as the Keystone State. The reason why Pennsylvania is the Keystone State, is because the Freemasons that founded this country were members of the Scottish Rite. Keep following here, and you will see what becomes quite evident surrounding the classification of "keystone." In that Scottish Rite organization there is the Royal Arch Degree. The Royal Arch Degree. And, of course, the Royal Arch, if you do not know, was originally designated because of the sun coming over the horizon in the morning, which made the royal arch. The Freemasonic Royal Arch Degree has been continually, and ever busy, throughout the world with their Freemasonic endeavors. The United States, as I've written, founded its Constitution in Philadelphia, with Pennsylvania becoming the "key stone" of a royal arch. To this day, Pennsylvania is known as the keystone state. ...

AN INTRODUCTORY WORD. "YOU MUST BE MAD OR YOU WOULDN‘T BE HERE." "I want the reader to try to imagine what it would be like to believe the opposite of what we were brought up to believe. This inevitably involves an altered state of consciousness, to some degree or the other, and which is just as it should be. Because at the heart of esoteric teaching in all parts of the world lies the belief that higher forms of intelligence can be accessed in altered states. The Western tradition in particular has always emphacized the value of imaginative exercises which involve cultivating and dwelling upon visual images. Allowed to sink deep into the mind, they there do their work." … "Induce in yourself a different state of mind and the most famous and familiar histories mean something very different. In fact, if anything in this history is true, then everything your teachers taught you is thrown into question. I suspect this prospect doesn‘t alarm you. As one of the devotees of the ancient and secret philosophy so memorably put it: You must be mad or you wouldn‘t be here." Mark Booth, The Secret History of the World, 2008. So then, welcome to the madhouse! While some may call my book convoluted and complex, in some ways, it is relatively brief and simple. You won‘t have to read all that far before either "clicking" with the basic models and concepts presented or just closing the book and rejecting the matters I set before you. Although it may be best to read the chapters in order, if something "leaps out" at you, then by all means, read this or that piece before the others. For me, such feelings are inner spiritual instructions to pay attention and see what is actually before us. But before beginning the presentation, I must share a personal story regarding these matters. Shortly after I published several articles on freemasonry (which are chapters in this book) and was interviewed on the radio, a secondary residence where I sometimes sleep over and where I maintain an office was broken into. This was no ordinary burglary. All that was stolen were two computers, passing up other items that easily could have been sold or hocked by the burglars. This was a burglary with a clear purpose and intent. Also, my other laptop was attacked by a virus which wiped out my files, but I was lucky to have (some) backup copies available. To say the least, I considered all of this was a warning, learning very quickly that these matters not called an occult war for nothing! Given this set of circumstances, we must assume that there is something in this material that, how shall we call them, the Powers That Be, do not want you to know. So without taking up more time and space, embark with me on a journey of discovery into historiography, metaphysics and current events. Follow closely as we enter some very exciting but also rather bizarre and outré venues. Wherever your journey may have begun, welcome to our exploratory venture into the Occult War. But even more importantly, learn that the battle is essentially to circumvent the globalist New World Order secret society plans and protocols for our lives and our world. With that in mind, away we go. ...

Every Mason wants to know the meaning of the rites and rituals, the symbols and ceremonies of Masonry. Although it may have been years since he himself took that mystic journey towards the East and though repeated fruitless searchings may have led him to believe that the rumors of a wonderful philosophy which Masonry contains are pure imagination, yet there still lingers, like the sweet, faint fragrance which clings to old and faded garlands, the thought that, after all, there may possibly be some meaning under it. And, in this intuitional thought or rather hope, he is right. Although he never knew the reason why certain symbolic actions were performed nor could his inquiries, addressed to others, elicit any such information, he feIt that there must have been, at some time; a definite idea upon which the symbolism was based. The various books on Masonic Symbolism confine their attention strictly. to a few of the more prominent symbols and do not take up the ritual itself nor explain why certain things are done and certain actions performed. ...

Like all great philosophers, bacon took long to mature his works. From his youth upwards he had been thinking about philosophy, knowledge, learning. When, at the age of 16, he was an undergraduate at Cambridge, he became dissatisfied with the philosophy of Aristotle, for the unfruitfulness of the way; and as a young man of 25 he had commenced a philosophy of his own, styled Temporis Partus Maximus. In 1592 (aet. 32) he wrote to Burghley, 'I have taken all knowledge to be my province,' and in that year the 'Praise of Knowledge' in a 'Triumph ' given by Essex before the Court bears the stamp of Bacons mind and style. ...

Truthbringers must come under what protection they can gain for selves and we owe immeasurable appreciation to those whose investigations lead them onward in spite of the risks that research brings. The document speaks for itself, please. I prefer to leave the information as written and without further comment on same as to personages except to say that the copy we have been provided is from Spain – having traveled through translators and researchers in Germany, Switzerland and even by way of Australia and those aforementioned UFO characters. See, there truly ARE others in the program without taking identifications which are false or remote in CLAIMS of holdings. I repeat the WE HAVE NEVER VARIED ONE IOTA from our assigned task (mission), no matter how many might deviate from their “claimed” direction of intent. As for this book in point, we would ask a couple of things, for this will be a “refresher” course in preparation for the next PHASE of the project under way. 1) The book is BANNED and we respect the danger to the author(s). Therefore, the cost for same off the shelves IS PRICELESS. It has been presented from the original presenters in request that it be allowed to work within our own projects and that source be so far remote in origin as to use devious means to get it to this keyboard operator we recognize as “dharma” and in which I, Hatonn, have request for comment as we go along word for word, and not run through “scanners”. AND 2) To insure a continuation of CONTACT, directly request to handle the material and documents: Please do not bypass the information by simply gathering clandestinely from our resources. The book itself, under the most inexpensive method of acquiring, is worth for more in “real” expenses than the cost of a subscription to CONTACT AS A SUBSCRIBER. No, Mr. “Bellringer”, you will not get by with describing “some of the staff of CONTACT AS BEING SOMEHOW SEPARATE AND APART FROM DISCREDITED HATONN, DORIS AND E.J. Sorry, after all this time of foolishness, you will find for self how incredibly stupid you present in your ongoing hogwash about the quality of SPECTRUM. Is it not time you got your heads on straight, readers? How, pray tell, could you judge the scribe a lie while the staff is no different from our own presentations? You CANNOT have one without the other. Do we want Spectrum’s Subscribers? No, but we are certainly weary of the theft of presentations and you had best think about that EVERY TIME YOU SEE A REFERENCE TO “OUR LONG-TIME READERS” BY ANY SUCH “OTHER” PRESENTER.

If there are “long-time readers”, YOU ARE CONTACT READERS – AND SHIFTY WORDS WILL CHANGE NOTHING AS “NOW” BEING TOLD YOU.

5 PURPOSES OF THE FIRST CRUSADE TROY SOUTHGATE Most people think the crusades were fought simply to free the Holy Land from the grip of the Muslims. However, there were other factors at work in launching the First Crusade. Byzantium, the Eastern Roman Empire, had contrary ideas of what the crusaders were supposed to accomplish. The pope also had certain goals in mind beyond liberating Palestine. The knights and noblemen who led the crusader armies also had agendas of their own. . . . 12 DARWINISM & CREATIONISM JAMES I. NIENHAUS A believer in creationism explains why many people take issue with the generally accepted theory of evolution. Did man really come from some sort of monkey? Did monkeys start out as fishes, hundreds of millions of years ago? What about the problem of the links that seem to be missing? And, most puzzling of all, how did the first living cell (an amazingly complex entity) spring into being? The author questions whether evolution could lead “from goo to you, by way of the zoo,” as some creationists phrase it. . . . 18 LOST RACE OF THE PACIFIC FRANK JOSEPH Were the Polynesians the first to colonize the vast Pacific Ocean, as most anthropologists would have you believe? Or were they following in the wake of others who had boldly gone where no man had ventured before? An expert on ancient civilizations assembles the evidence into one article that seems to prove that some branch of the Caucasoid family pioneered in such far-flung places as Easter Island (Rapanui), New Zealand, Alaska, Oregon, California, Japan and the Andes Mountains. . . . 24 AUSTRALIA’S BRIEF CIVIL WAR GEOFF MUIRDEN In the 1850s the Ballarat region was home to one of the world’s greatest quests for gold. But the quest was not without its difficulties, as the greed of the British empire spilled blood on the Southern Cross. Here is the story of the Eureka Rebellion, in which Ballarat’s miners took up arms against the Redcoats on the goldfields in 1854. . . . 30 MAN OF HISTORY . . . AND MYSTERY ROBERT LOGAN & JOHN TIFFANY His fascinating books did much to establish the field of prehistory. But who would have thought that this mildmannered professor, Dr. Ivar Arthur Nikolai Lissner, led a double life as a daring spy? . . . 36 WHAT REALLY SANK RUSSIAN SUB? JOHN NUGENT Many conflicting stories have been put forth about the strange fate of the doomed Russian submarine Kursk. But the truth seems to be leaking out at last. Did America sink the Russian sub, using an MK-48 torpedo? . . . 42 TYROL’S FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL VIVIAN BIRD The South Tyroleans have lived for centuries on land that is currently part of Italy, yet they have never been ethnic Italians. They would like to continue to retain their own unique ethnic and cultural identity. But will they? . . . 46 100 DAYS: NAPOLEON’S LAST GASP PHILIPP BOUHLER Napoleon’s second time in power, which was a short one, turned out to be exactly 100 days. But the great leader might have been better off remaining quietly on Elba. Although he once hobnobbed with kings, his second exile was much less comfortable than his first, and, according to some, he was poisoned in the end. . . . 50 JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY EXPOSED? MICHAEL COLLINS PIPER In this highly controversial article, the author tells of his “membership” in the John Birch Society, perhaps the shortest “membership” on record, since it only took him a matter of minutes to realize that something seemed to be seriously amiss with the patriotic group. . . . 54 EXPLORING THE PHILISTINE ENIGMA SUSAN TOMORY Were the Philistines Hungarians in disguise? The author, herself of Hungarian descent, is well qualified to consider the possible links between the ancient Philistines and the progenitors of the Hungarian people. . . . 65 REVOLUTIONARY RHODE ISLAND ABSTEMIOUS TROUT Rhode Islanders have a long history of contrarianism, even refusing to sign the Constitution.

Here is the story. . . . 69 MASONRY & THE SECRET EMPIRE CUSHMAN CUNNINGHAM In his latest book, a longtime patriot author continues his work exposing the machinations of what he calls “the Secret Empire,” which has had its hand in assassination, revolution and social discord since as far back as the Khazars. Here is one chapter from Cunningham’s new book, debuted here, clarifying the role some lodges of Freemasonry have played in “the Secret Empire.” . . . 72 BRITAIN’S WAR GUILT JOSEPH GOEBBELS Hitler’s propaganda minister was a master of words and imagery.

The Britons Publishing Company is to be congratulated on reprinting this lecture on Freemasonry by Right Rev. Mgr. George Dillon, D.D. The lecture was delivered at Edinburgh in October, 1884, that is, about six months after the appearance of Pope Leo XIII's famous Encyclical Letter, Humanum Genus, on Freemasonry. At the request of many who had heard the lecture and of others who had read the reports that appeared in the papers, Mgr. Dillon decided to publish it, along with another lecture delivered to the same audience on the Spoliation of the Congregation of Propaganda. The book was brought out by the excellent firm of M. H. Gill and Son, Ltd., O'Connell Street, Dublin, in 1885, but it has been long out of print. In the original preface, the author pointed out that the lecture had not been intended to be a formal and exhaustive treatment of the subject, and that he had embodied in the book several documents which were only briefly referred to or partially quoted in the lecture.1 His object was to give a clear outline of the "whole question of secret, atheistic organisation, its origin, its nature, its history in the last century and in this, and its unity of Satanic purpose in a wonderful diversity of forms." He found that it was necessary to do this because "very few, if any, attempts have been made in our language to treat the subject as a whole. Several writers appear to assume as known that which was really unknown to very many: and few touched at all upon the fact of the supreme direction given to the universality of secret societies from a guiding, governing and — even to the rank and file of the members of the secret societies themselves — unknown and invisible junta." Mgr. Dillon does not speak explicitly of the two currents of thought and action proceeding from the Masonic French Revolution, namely, the current of Rousseauist-Lockian- Masonic Liberalism and the current of Socialism and Communism. Implicitly, however, he does so when, on the one hand, he foreshadows the United States of Europe and World Federalism and, on the other, quotes the infamous Declaration of the International in 1868. This Declaration, formulated at the International Congress held at Geneva in 1868 and quoted by Mgr. Dillon in his preface, is well worth reproducing, at least in part. It runs as follows: "The object of the International Association of Workmen, as of every other Socialist Association, is to do away with the parasite and the pariah. Now what parasite can be compared to the priest . . . ? "God and Christ, these citizen-Providences, have been at all times the armour of Capital and the most sanguinary enemies of the working classes. It is owing to God and to Christ that we remain to this day in slavery. It is by deluding us with lying hopes that the priests have caused us to accept all the sufferings of this earth. It is only after sweeping away all religion, and after tearing up even to the last roots every religious idea that we can arrive at our political and social ideal . . . . "Down, then, with God and with Christ! Down with the despots of heaven and earth! Death to the priests! Such is the motto of our grand crusade." In a note on page 20 of the original edition1, Mgr. Dillon returned to the question of the direction of Freemasonry, which he had mentioned in his preface. He there says: "The Jewish connection with modern Freemasonry is an established fact everywhere manifested in its history. The Jewish formulas employed by Freemasonry, the Jewish traditions which run through its ceremonial, point to a Jewish origin, or to the work of Jewish contrivers . . . . Who knows but behind the Atheism and desire of gain which impels them to urge on Christians to persecute the Church and destroy it, there lies a hidden hope to reconstruct their Temple, and in the darkest depths of secret society plotting there lurks a deeper society still which looks to a return to the land of Judah and to the rebuilding of the Temple of Jerusalem?" These remarks can furnish the starting point for a deeper examination of the whole question of secret societies and their action, studied in the light of the Encyclicals of the Sovereign Pontiffs, and of history. The rejection of order by Satan and the other fallen angels was irrevocable. It was a declaration, by the whole body of them together, of perpetual war on and implacable hatred towards the Blessed Trinity and the Supernatural Life of Grace. The fall of the human race could be undone, because human beings can change their minds and the human race comes into existence successively by propagation from the first Adam. In the undoing of the Fall, however, God permitted a second rejection of order. In spite of the fact that they had been repeatedly warned, in types and figures, and orally by the prophets, about the way they would treat the true Messiah when He came, the Jews turned against Him and the whole Divine Plan He proposed. When they refused to enter into His designs, God permitted the crime of Deicide, and by the supreme act of humble submission on Calvary, the Supernatural Life of Grace was restored to the world. Fulfilling the prophecies to the letter, Our Lord allowed Himself to be put to death, but He died proclaiming the Divine Plan for order. God wished the Jews as a people to accept His Only- Begotten Son and to be the Heralds of the Supernatural, supernational Life of His Mystical Body. They were thus offered the glorious privilege of proclaiming and working for the only mode of realising the union and brotherhood of nations which is possible since the Fall. On account of their racial pride they refused to accept that there could be any higher life than their national life and they would not hear of the non-Jewish nations entering into the Kingdom of the Mystical Body on the same level as themselves. The Crucifixion of Our Lord on Calvary was, however, not only the public rejection by the Jewish nation of the Divine Programme for order in the world, but was at the same time the proclamation by that nation of its determination to work against God for the triumph of another Messias. Since Our Lord Jesus Christ, the True Messias, is the Source of the Supernatural Life through membership of His Mystical Body, the future Messias must be anti-supernatural or naturalistic, and membership of Christ will have to be eliminated in preparation for him. Since the True Supernatural Messias came to found the supranational kingdom of His Mystical Body into which he asked the Jewish nation to lead all nations the future Messias must be a purely Jewish National Messias and his mission can have no other object than to impose the rule of the Jewish nation on the other nations. The choice presented to the Jewish nation by the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ may be represented diagramatically as follows: Supernatural and supranational Kingdom of the Mystical Body of Christ. The Jewish nation instructed by the prophets. Naturalistic ambition to impose Rule of their nation. ...

Freemasonry is often described as a "secret society," but Freemasons themselves believe it is more correct to say that it is an esoteric society, in that certain aspects are private. The most common phrasing being that Freemasonry has, in the 21st century, become less a secret society and more of a "society with secrets." The private aspects of modern Freemasonry are the modes of recognition amongst members and particular elements within the ritual. For instance Masons might ask newcomers they meet "are you on the square?" In an open society such as the United States, one is left to wonder why the need for secrecy? The task of describing Freemasonry is a daunting one. Saying that it is the largest fraternal organization in the world with over 3 million members in the United States and seven hundred thousand in Great Britain and a million more around the Farth, and that it has been the study of fifty thousand books and pamphlets is only the beginning. Since it was revealed in 1717, Freemasonry has engendered more hatred and enmity than any other secular organization in the world. It has been constantly subjected to unremitting attack by the Catholic Church, its membership forbidden to men of the Mormon Church, the Salvation Army and the Methodist Church. It is outlawed in a number of countries. Anti Masonic allegations always run into difficulties because Masonry refuses to respond to attacks. What is surprising is the very large number of world leaders, past and present who were and are members of Freemasonry: King George VI of England, Frederick the Great of Prussia and King Haakon VII of Norway. U.S. history is replete with leaders who were Masons such as George Washington, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. WWII was fought by British Masonic leaders such as Winston Churchill and the American President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and American army leaders like Generals Omar Bradley, Mark Clark and George Marshall. It is virtually impossible to know where to begin or to end in recounting Masonic influence on every aspect of life for the past 290 years. This work is an attempt to put together that which will make it relatively easy to explain "What is Masonry." ...

The Rhodes Scholarships, established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes's seventh will, are known to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous wills left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire. And what does not seem to be known to anyone is that this secret society was created by Rhodes and his principal trustee, Lord Milner, and continues to exist to this day. To be sure, this secret society is not a childish thing like the Ku Klux Klan, and it does not have any secret robes, secret handclasps, or secret passwords. It does not need any of these, since its members know each other intimately. It probably has no oaths of secrecy nor any formal procedure of initiation. It does, however, exist and holds secret meetings, over which the senior member present presides. At various times since 1891, these meetings have been presided over by Rhodes, Lord Milner, Lord Selborne, Sir Patrick Duncan, Field Marshal Jan Smuts, Lord Lothian, and Lord Brand. They have been held in all the British Dominions, starting in South Africa about 1903; in various places in London, chiefly 175 Piccadilly; at various colleges at Oxford, chiefly All Souls; and at many English country houses such as Tring Park, Blickling Hall, Cliveden, and others. This society has been known at various times as Milner's Kindergarten, as the Round Table Group, as the Rhodes crowd, as The Times crowd, as the All Souls group, and as the Cliveden set. All of these terms are unsatisfactory, for one reason or another, and I have chosen to call it the Milner Group. Those persons who have used the other terms, or heard them used, have not generally been aware that all these various terms referred to the same Group. It is not easy for an outsider to write the history of a secret group of this kind, but, since no insider is going to do it, an outsider must attempt it. It should be done, for this Group is, as I shall show, one of the most important historical facts of the twentieth century. Indeed, the Group is of such significance that evidence of its existence is not hard to find, if one knows where to look. This evidence I have sought to point out without overly burdening this volume with footnotes and bibliographical references. While such evidences of scholarship are kept at a minimum, I believe I have given the source of every fact which I mention. Some of these facts came to me from sources which I am not permitted to name, and I have mentioned them only where I can produce documentary evidence available to everyone. Nevertheless, it would have been very difficult to write this book if I had not received a certain amount of assistance of a personal nature from persons close to the Group. For obvious reasons, I cannot reveal the names of such persons, so I have not made reference to any information derived from them unless it was information readily available from other sources. Naturally, it is not possible for an outsider to write about a secret group without falling into errors. There are undoubtedly errors in what follows. I have tried to keep these at a minimum by keeping the interpretation at a minimum and allowing the facts to speak for themselves. This will serve as an excuse for the somewhat excessive use of quotations. I feel that there is no doubt at all about my general interpretation. I also feel that there are few misstatements of fact, except in one most difficult matter. This difficulty arises from the problem of knowing just who is and who is not a member of the Group. Since membership may not be a formal matter but based rather on frequent social association, and since the frequency of such association varies from time to time and from person to person, it is not always easy to say who is in the Group and who is not. I have tried to solve this difficulty by dividing the Group into two concentric circles: an inner core of intimate associates, who unquestionably knew that they were members of a group devoted to a common purpose; and an outer circle of a larger number, on whom the inner circle acted by personal persuasion, patronage distribution, and social pressure. It is probable that most members of the outer circle were not conscious that they were being used by a secret society. More likely they knew it, but, English fashion, felt it discreet to ask no questions. The ability of Englishmen of this class and background to leave the obvious unstated, except perhaps in obituaries, is puzzling and sometimes irritating to an outsider. In general, I have undoubtedly made mistakes in my lists of members, but the mistakes, such as they are, are to be found rather in my attribution of any particular person to the outer circle instead of the inner core, rather than in my connecting him to the Group at all. In general, I have attributed no one to the inner core for whom I do not have evidence, convincing to me, that he attended the secret meetings of the Group. As a result, several persons whom I place in the outer circle, such as Lord Halifax, should probably be placed in the inner core. I should say a few words about my general attitude toward this subject. I approached the subject as a historian. This attitude I have kept. I have tried to describe or to analyze, not to praise or to condemn. I hope that in the book itself this attitude is maintained. Of course I have an attitude, and it would be only fair to state it here. In general, I agree with the goals and aims of the Milner Group. I feel that the British way of life and the British Commonwealth of Nations are among the great achievements of all history. I feel that the destruction of either of them would be a terrible disaster to mankind. I feel that the withdrawal of Ireland, of Burma, of India, or of Palestine from the Commonwealth is regrettable and attributable to the fact that the persons in control of these areas failed to absorb the British way of life while they were parts of the Commonwealth. I suppose, in the long view, my attitude would not be far different from that of the members of the Milner Group. But, agreeing with the Group on goals, I cannot agree with them on methods. To be sure, I realize that some of their methods were based on nothing but good intentions and high ideals—higher ideals than mine, perhaps. But their lack of perspective in critical moments, their failure to use intelligence and common sense, their tendency to fall back on standardized social reactions and verbal cliches in a crisis, their tendency to place power and influence into hands chosen by friendship rather than merit, their oblivion to the consequences of their actions, their ignorance of the point of view of persons in other countries or of persons in other classes in their own country—these things, it seems to me, have brought many of the things which they and I hold dear close to disaster. In this Group were persons like Esher, Grey, Milner, Hankey, and Zimmern, who must command the admiration and affection of all who know of them. On the other hand, in this Group were persons whose lives have been a disaster to our way of life. Unfortunately, in the long run, both in the Group and in the world, the influence of the latter kind has been stronger than the influence of the former. This has been my personal attitude. Little of it, I hope, has penetrated to the pages which follow. I have been told that the story I relate here would be better left untold, since it would provide ammunition for the enemies of what I admire. I do not share this view. The last thing I should wish is that anything I write could be used by the Anglophobes and isolationists of the Chicago Tribune. But I feel that the truth has a right to be told, and, once told, can be an injury to no men of good will. Only by a knowledge of the errors of the past is it possible to correct the tactics of the future. Carroll Quigley 1949. ...

Prologue. . . . man is not Man as yet. Nor shall I deem his object served, his end Attained, his genuine strength put fairly forth, While only here and there a star dispels The darkness, here and there a towering mind O'erlooks its prostrate fellows . . . Such men are even now upon the earth, Serene amid the half-formed creatures round Who should be saved by them and joined with them. (Robert Browning, Paracelsus, from the 1867 ed. of The Poetical Works of Robert Browning, vol. I, pp. 190 and 192) I first saw Mark Hedsel in October 1955, at the Archer Gallery, in Westbourne Grove, London. He was talking to Dr Morris, the almostdestitute owner of the gallery, and to that most remarkable artist, Austin Osman Spare, who had a selection of paintings, pastels and drawings on exhibition at the gallery. Dr Morris had to some extent taken Spare under her wing, and had arranged this exhibition in order to help him earn enough money to keep body and soul together. I later discovered that Spare knew that this would be his last exhibition: he had said to a friend that he would be dead within the year. I recognized Spare from photographs I had seen. I had been impressed by his poetry, and by the stories I had heard about his strange abilities. It was an interest in this which had brought me to the gallery, and to the dawning realization that Spare was one of the unrecognized geniuses of our century. He was no longer as famous as he had been: part of this was due to the loss of his Studio and pictures in the early years of the Second World War, as a result of Nazi bombing. Some of those familiar with magical curse law had suggested that this loss was a direct result of Spare's own uncompromising attitude to Hitler. It seems that, in 1936, Spare had been asked to paint the dictator's portrait at Berchtesgaden, and had rejected the Fuhrer in no uncertain way. It was testament to the strength of the artist that he was prepared to stand alone in the face of almost universal appeasement. The minute I saw Spare's face, I realized just how appropriate was his name: he was indeed spare. Whether I sensed this wildness of spirit from his shock of greying hair, from the intensity of his eyes, or from the ragged appearance of his ill-fitting clothes is hard to say. From his poetry I had expected him to be intense, yet self-assured - serene in his spiritual insight; yet his face seemed to be restless, even tortured. Electric forces seemed to ray from the hair upon his face. His sparse moustache seemed to press down into his jaw, drawing his mouth into a thin and compact line, as though life-experiences had pushed him into a severity at variance with his spiritual knowledge. Even his intense intellectual quality, so clearly expressed in the high forehead, seemed to be pulling him asunder: his mind was lifted upwards by the shock of wild hair, yet drawn earthwards by the weight of his heavy dark eyebrows. Calm and intense, amidst this warfare of hair, were the most powerful eyes imaginable. I was pleased that he didn't glance towards me, for I imagined that the full stare of those eyes might well strip one soul-naked. It was no surprise for me to learn some years later that Spare had admitted during an interview on BBC radio that, were he so inclined, he could kill a man with a curse. Although my attention was taken at first by Spare, I could not help also looking at his companion. Even among that group of distinguished artists and poets who had come to pay Spare tribute this man stood out as someone of special calibre. I felt compelled to study him. I did not know who Mark Hedsel was, but I could see from his quiet, sophisticated posture and the assuredness of his gestures that he was a person of extraordinary being. At the same time, I had that uncanny yet undeniable feeling that I had met him before. Do we always have a momentary presentiment when we glimpse a fragment of our destiny, I wonder? It was difficult to determine his age, but I judged him to be in his late 20s. Although the weather was not particularly cold that October day, he had a dark blue scarf wrapped around his neck, and he wore a beret, in the French manner. Under his arm he carried a small leather satchel. The contrast with Spare was striking. The artist also had a scarf around his neck: it was a checked scurf, and, being lucked into his inner coat, suggested the dress of a rough Cockney. In contrast, Hedsel was a dandy - he wore his scarf flowing loosely around his neck, allowing it to fall elegantly over the top of his coat. It was, I imagined, such a touch of cultivated refinement that one would have experienced in the appearance of that urbane occultist, the mysterious Comte de Saint-Germain. Indeed, when I first looked at Mark Hedsel, quite unaware of how our lives would intertwine in later years, my mind called up an imagination of that fastidious and totally misunderstood initiate who wandered with such ease through the pre-Revolutionary courts of 18th-century France. In later years, I discovered that this final exhibition of Austin Spare's paintings had left its traces in the lives of several people. Two very remarkable women - each in their own different ways deeply interested in reincarnation - had been to the Archer Gallery, within a few days of my own visit. Both are still alive: one is in her 80s, and the other well into her 90s. Even so, I am pleased to report that they are still my friends, and that both recall this exhibition as significant for British art. Both were wise enough to purchase works from those on display. I was a poor student in 1955, and it never entered my mind that one day I would own the extraordinary pastel by Spare with which I fell in love at the exhibition (plate 1). Over 30 years later, one of these women - knowing of my interest in him - selected the picture from her own extensive collection of arcane art, and gave it to me. Austin Spare had been very poor, which may explain why the pastel was so cheaply framed. I was delighted to find, when I lifted the wooden panel from the inappropriate framing, that, in the corner, Spare had signed the picture with his characteristic AOS monogram. As I held the pastel up to the light to peer at the signature, I had no need to hunt out the old gallery catalogue in search of the title: it had remained engraved upon my soul for all those 30-odd years. Spare had called the pastel Blood on the Moon. Of course, when I first saw the picture at the Archer Gallery, I had wondered what the title meant. I was far too young to have the courage to approach Spare himself in search of an explanation. Later, when I talked to my friends, and even to the lady who bought it, I discovered that no one knew why Spare had given the picture that strange title. I had read enough of Spare's writings to know that there would be a deep meaning hidden away somewhere, for he had been immersed in the magic of hieroglyphic lore, but by the time I began to look attentively for it, Spare had passed away, taking with him, as I imagined, any possible answer to my question. ...

Papacy and Freemasonry, those are the two powers active throughout the world and each is seeking to dominate it. The solution of the struggle taking place between them is, at the present moment of the utmost importance; for we are face to face not only with the crossroads of history but also with a radical transformation of humanity itself. Either Romam Catholicism will lift us up again to the level of Christian civilization or else Judeo-Masonry will drag us down the path of barbarism and decadent paganism. The whole world oscillates between the two: Christianism and Paganism. On December 8th, 1892, Pope Leo XIII wrote to the Italian Episcopal Hierarchy: "It is necessary to fight Freemasonry with those weapons of divine faith which in past ages vanquished paganism." Moreover the Papacy and Judeo-Masonry are both so fully conscious of the diametrically opposed parts that they are playing that they assume that from it must issue the political, economic, intellectual and religious future of individuals as well as of nations. It is a fact and the better proof of it is their irreducible antagonism toward each other. What is, indeed, Judeo-Masonry today if not the concentration and mobilization of all evil forces? This Sect with its threefold claim of being Counter-Church (against the Church), Counter-State (against the State) and Counter-Morality (against traditional morality) takes pride in being above all and for all times the enemy of the Catholic Church; one of its rallying calls is that of Tigrotto, one of the Alta Vendita chiefs who, in 1822, proclaimed: "Catholicism must be destroyed throughout the whole world." With Tigrotto also the anti-Catholic plan is expressed thus: "Let us conspire only against Rome." Is this not expressed in an identical manner in the German "Los Von Rom" or in the English: "No Popery?" Monseigneur Gay, having been assigned by the Council of the Vatican the duty of writing "A Memorandum on Secret Societies," gave the following striking definition of Freemasonry: "It is evident that in a general way, this doctrine of Freemasonry is not only a heresy, nor even the totality of all heresies, which find in it a haven; it is a fact that Masonry goes beyond the limits of what constitutes what is generally ascribed to the word 'heresy,' for it allows full play to the commission of outrageous perversion. Freemasonry is indeed the abyss of all errors, the well of perdition." This abyss of all errors (Abyssus Errorum) is justly compared to the "abysmal well' mentioned in Revelation (abyssus putei, ix, 1-3 ), whose emanations darken the light of the sun and poison the air. It is this accursed Sect whose perversion was stigmatized by Pope Pius IX when he named it: "The Synagogue of Satan." Due to its enormous extension and its nowadays very visible collusion with International Jewish Finance, Freemasonry has indeed become the "Synagogue of Satan." As such it provided funds for the Russian revolution, installed in Moscow; it carried Communism from East to West, took up the leadership of States of their governments, their various administration departments or ministries, and of their parliaments and, in consequence, it is such a world power that for any discerning mind, it seems as though, today, there are on earth only two great powers, viz.: Judeo-Masonry in the service of World Jewry and the Church in the hands of Peter's successor. Those two powers are at war, face to face as though fighting an endless duel, as is clearly expressed in the stone inscription of the Masonic Grand Orient and Supreme Council of France: "The fight taking place between Catholicism and Freemasonry is a fight to the very death, ceaseless and merciless." (Bulletin of the Grand Orient of France P. 183. 1892 and in memorandum of the Supreme Council No. 85, page 48. ) With such a rallying definite line of action, one can positively affirm that Judeo-Masonry is the unique enemy of the Church. It can be detected in all anti-Catholic attacks against clergy or laity led either by Freemasons or by even Catholics whose faith has decreased due to either fear, passion or self-interest. In his encyclical "Humanum Genus" Pope Leo XIII wrote: "There exists in the world a certain number of sects which although seemingly different one from another as to name, ritual, form and origin are, however, similar due to the analogy of their aim and chief principles. Indeed, they are identical to Freemasonry which is, for them all, the central point from which they proceed and toward which they converge." Further, in his letter to the Italian people dated December 8, 1892, Pope Leo XIII writes: "Let us remember that Christianity and Freemasonry are essentially incompatible, to such an extent, that to become united with one means being divorced from the other. Let us, therefore, expose Freemasonry as the enemy of God, of the Church and of our Motherland " At the present moment (1930) it is a fact that St. Augustine's two cities, the City of Good and The City of Evil are separate, each seeking to rule in the world. The City of Evil ruled by Satan is named Judeo-Masonry; insistently it proclaims to all, Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, to Freethinkers, Communists and Pagans, in fact to the whole world that: "To fight against papacy is a social necessity and constitutes the constant duty of Freemasonry." (Masonic International Congress held in Brussels 1904, page 132 of the report. ) The City of Good and of Jesus Christ is the Catholic Church; for over 19 centuries, according to the teaching of the Roman Pontiff, She repeats to the world Her immutable creed: I believe in the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church Such is the subject of my conference. From an over-all viewpoint, there should issue a solid appreciation of the work of a number of Popes done on the subject of the Sect of Freemasonry from the time it made its appearance in the 18th century. It showed its anti-religious and anti-social activities as well as its licentiousness and its aims which, from the very beginning, were susceptible of excommunication. It showed also its prodigious development leading to the situation which I already sketched, namely, the duality of forces: one, the forces of evil concentrating in Judeo-Masonry and the other the forces of good, concentrated in one flock under the staff of the one shepherd; (representative of Jesus Christ) who, since 1738 has constantly renewed the appeal for the defense of the Church against Her mortal enemy - even though in many instances the appeal was useless. Surrounded by Ghettos and Masonic Lodges, in the course of a fight which has become universal, Popes have reiterated their appeal for defense and have clearly shown the place and the duty of Catholics - all too frequently the place has been left deserted and the duty has been betrayed in a shameful manner. However, even if in our day we are witnessing the terrific confirmation of these truths, it is necessary to remember that they were proclaimed by several Popes. Pope Clement XII 1730-1740 Founded in 1717, modern speculative Masonry took on its actual form following the publication by Anderson, a clergyman, of the "Constitutions" in 1723. Fifteen years later, on April 28, 1738, Pope Clement XII in his Pontifical Constitution "In Eminenti" condemned Freemasonry as being Counter-Church and Counter-State. It was the Pontifical reply. Failure to heed it, whether partial or general, by the Church and the State of those days, seems to us as the primordial cause of all our political and religious present day turmoil. Thus said Pope Clement XII: "Let us meditate upon the serious evils which are usually the result of those kinds of Societies or centers, not only concerning the peace of temporal States, but still more as regards the salvation of souls. Those Societies are not in agreement with the civil and economic laws of the States." "In order to close the widely open road to iniquities which might be committed with impunity and also for other reasons, just and reasonable, that have come to our knowledge . . . We have resolved and decreed to condemn and forbid such Societies, assemblies, reunions, conventions, aggregations or meetings called either Freemasonic or known under some other denomination. We condemn and forbid them by this, our present constitution, which is to be considered valid for ever." However, not only is the condemnation by Pope Clement XII extended to Masonic Sects, but it applies also to all the laymen who, although they are not members of Societies called Freemasonic, favor them, in any manner, thus: "We command to the faithful to abstain from intercourse with those societies . . . in order to avoid excommunication, which will be the penalty imposed upon all those contravening to this, our order. None, except at the point of death, could be absolved of this son except by us or the then existing Roman Pontiff." The Constitution "In Eminenti" was extended throughout all the Papal States by Cardinal Ferrao's Edict of January 14th, 1739. Pope Benedict XIV 1740-1758 Pope Benedict XIV, on March 16, 1751 published the Constitution "Providas" in which he inserted in full In Eminenti, the Bull which had been written by his predecessor, Clement XII, in order to make it very evident that the condemnation of Freemasonry was irrevocable and was to be applied to the future as well as to the present. As a matter of fact, Benedict XIV, had already denounced Masonry as being Counter-Morality in connection with the Order of Felicity of Avignon, a Secret Society of debauchers; among themselves the members of this Society spoke only in a kind of slangy language usually used by sailors. The Pope mentions it twice in his correspondence. I am here transcribing a few lines from his letter of March 25th, 1744, addressed to the Cardinal de Tencin, who was the Pontifical Ambassador at the Court of King Louis XV: "We have received from Avignon the news that in Nimes and also at Montpellier the Freemasons gave a great entertainment in order to gain proselytes. Women and men from the Avignon Society went to it, and, doubtless, upon their return they will organize a Freemasonic Lodge as they once had already attempted to do under the name of Society of Felicity; they might have succeeded had it not been for the zeal of the Archbishop. We wish you to protest, in Our name, to His most Christian Majesty. so that He Will not authorize in His States, the Sect of Freemasons which other Princes have extirpated from their own country." (From the correspondence of Pope Benedict XIV by Gmile de Heckeren. ) Furthermore, in his Constitution, "Providas," Benedict XIV enumerates six reasons which drove Pope Clement XII to strike Secret Societies; they are 1) the Interconfessonalism (or Interfaith) of Freemasons; 2) their secret; 3) their oath; 4) their opposition to Church and State; 5) the interdiction pronounced against them in several States by the Heads of such countries; and, 6) their immorality which the Pope characterizes thus: "Those Societies, according to men who are prudent and honest, are ill-famed, and to become a member thereof, would lead to evil and perversion." From the outset, before the 18th century, under the efforts of Masonry which sank us into the horrors of the French Revolution, the Sect had been unmasked by the Popes and exposed before the eyes of the Catholics with its odious triple shame of Counter-Morality, Counter-State, and above all, Counter-Church. Let a Freemason, F. Limousin, in his first number of the Masonic Review called "L'ACACIA," of October, 1902, using the pen-name of Hiram, gives the following characteristic definition: "Freemasonry is an association . . . an institution . . . so it is said . . . but it is not that at all. Let us lift up all the veils, risking even to evoke numberless protestations. Freemasonry is a church: It is the Counter-Church, Counter-Catholicism: It is the other church - the church of heresy, of Freethought; The Catholic Church is considered as the arch-type church, the first church, church of dogmatism and of orthodoxy." Pope Clement XIII 1758-1769 I wish to add that during the 18th century Pope Clement XIII condemned highly placed Masons in an ordinance of January, 1759, against the work of Helvetius and this Pope published on Sept. 3rd, 1759, his constitution "Ut Primum" directed against the "Encyclopedie" of Diderot and d'Alembert . Finally, in his Encyclical of November 25th, 1766, "Christianae Republicae Salus," Pope Clement XIII denounced the peril incurred by Church and State through the published works of so-called philosophers. It meant that all Voltairian and Masonic works were being anathemized in the following terms: "The enemy of all Good," said the Pope, "has sown the evil seed in the field of the Lord and the evil grain has grown rapidly, to such an extent, that it threatens to destroy the harvest. It is time to cut it down." "In our days nothing is free from the attacks of those who are impious. God Himself becomes the object of their insolent audacity, they represent Him as a being who is mute, inert, devoid of a sense of providence or justice; they lower Him down to the level of animals. As far as they are concerned, matter is all or at least dominates everything. Even those among them who are opposed to such gross errors, but too frequently in our days, are not afraid, in their pride, to scrutinize our mysteries and to submit everything to nothing but their own reasoning power." Clement XIII exposes all the sores of Masonry which at the time of the French Revolution had reached the state of gangrene, such as Materialism, Nationalism, Deism and even Atheism which is most imperfectly veiled by the "Grand Architect of the Universe," a notion which, after all, is only the spontaneous evolution of the universal religion promised in the "Constitutions" of Anderson. In a last but anxious appeal the Pope entreats all the Bishops in the Catholic world to link their efforts with his own and to beseech all Christian Princes to take in hand the defense of the Sorrowing Church, "Gementis Ecclesiae Causam Exposcite." Listen attentively, 23 years before 1789 (year of the French Revolution) the Church was in tears, due to the threats held out by Freemasonry; who can vouch for the assumption that 23 years remain to us before the Judeo-Masonry of the 20th century will add to the tears being shed by the Church - blood tears similar to those shed during 1793? But this time it will not be in France only, but throughout the whole world. Is this not the time to speak again of the Sorrowing Church? Pope Pius VI 1795-1799 During the last quarter of this 18th century during which Masonry had spent 72 years to prepare for 1789 and the bloodshed which was to last many years, Peter's Seat had been occupied by Pius VI, who was destined to die in exile. His first Encyclical of December 25, 1775, is the acknowledgment of the tears he has shed, "Nostrarum Vim Pacrymarum Exquirit," those tears caused by the so-called philosophers, fanatical enemies of the Church, professors of lies. "Magistros Mendacissimos," leaders of sects of perdition who, with their erroneous beliefs, penetrate into the seats of the Academies, in the houses of the notables, in the Courts of Kings, and what is still more horrible, even penetrate in the Lord's Sanctuary, "Etiam in sanctuarium insinuant." Alas! Those "Sects of Perdition" at the hour of the Revolution dragged along too many members of the regular and secular Clergy whose names appear on the lists of Masonic lodges: "Corruptio optimi pessima." What of the situation today? Pope Pius VII 1800-1823 Let us now enter into the 19th century. The wars of the French Revolution and of the Empire spread and favored the creation of Masonic lodges (mostly Military lodges ) and the rapid European expansion of Masonic subversive ideas. Pope Pius VII became one of its glorious victims. It was therefore, in full knowledge of the subject, that on September, 1821, in his Encyclical "Ecclesiam a Jesu-Cristo the Pope applied to the Carbonari the following text: "They come under the guise of sheep although they are, in truth, none but ravening wolves." Thus, the Pope reiterated against the Freemasons the condemnations pronounced by Clement XII and Benedict XIV because they propagandize "religious indifference which is, of all, the most pernicious"; They also grant to everyone full liberty to inaugurate for himself his own religion according to his ideas and inclinations; to also profane and sully Our Savior's Passion in some of their odious ceremonies; to hold in contempt the Sacraments of the Church to which in a horrible sacrilegious manner they substitute sacraments of their own invention and they treat with derision the Mysteries of the Catholic Religion. Lastly, urged by a particular hatred toward the Apostolic See, because of its supremacy, Freemasons form conspiracies of the darkest and most sinister kind, in order to overthrow it. To what does Pope Pius VII refer when he makes use of the words "they hold in contempt the Sacraments of the Church"; if not to the Masonic 180 degree of the Rose Croix, which is an odious parody of the Sacrament of the Eucharist? What is it that the Pontiff stigmatises when he alludes to the substitution of Masonic sacraments to those of the Church and its ensuing horrible sacrileges if not to the "black mass" and the theft of consecrated hosts which Masons of the highest grades carry on their person as "Sacred Deposit" during the ceremony which precedes the orgy in the course of which they will profane It in the lowest, voluptuous ignominy? Why should we thus administer such blows to this "Anti Papism"? It is because it is the unbroken chain of Freemasonry and because the Pope is, on earth, the representative of Jesus Christ whose Cross is trampled upon by Masons, and because in the course of their rites, at the 300 initiation grade, they throw upside down the Pope's tiara and figuratively pierce his heart. Such things occur at the initiation of the degree of Knight Kadosh. Pope Pius VII was well informed. Pope Leo XII 1823-1829 Soon after his election as Pope on March 13, 1825, Leo XII published his Encyclical "Quo Graviora" condemning the Society called Freemasonry, as well as all other Secret Societies. In this Encyclical he first of all, republished the Constitutions of Popes Clement XII, Benedict XIV and Pius VII. Their appeal had remained fruitless as far as the various governments were concerned and Pope Leo XII wrote: "We have endeavored to discover the state, number and influence of secret societies and We easily have been able to acknowledge that, if only due to the number of new sects which have joined them, their audacity has increased. The Sect known under the name of "L'universitaire" has especially drawn Our attention: It has established a center in several Universities where young men, instead of receiving the correct teaching are perverted by a few teachers who are initiates of certain Mysteries which might be called Mysteries of Iniquity and are trained to commit crimes." Let us note that Pope Leo XII was afraid of the masonic penetration in public school teaching and seemed to foresee the devastation that the "One School" would rapidly inflict upon both the Church and society at large. Leo XII, in summing up the harm caused by clandestine sects, so evident in works written by their members, wrote: "They have dared publish works on Religion and Affairs of State, they have exposed their contempt for authority, their hatred of Sovereignty, their attacks against the Divinity of Jesus Christ and the very existence of God: They openly vaunt their materialism as well as their codes and statutes which explain their plans and efforts in order to overthrow the legitimate Heads of State and completely destroy the Church. "What is definitely ascertained is that those different sects, despite the diversity of their names, are all united and linked by the similarity of their infamous plans." Thus speaking, Pope Leo XII, considered he was accomplishing his duty as Supreme Pontiff and he wrote further, this page, which thoroughly throws light on our actual situation: "Let us use the words of our predecessor, Pope Clement XIII, in his Encyclical Letter of September 14, 1758, addressed to all Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops and Bishops of the Catholic Church, in which he said: 'I entreat you to become penetrated of the Strength of the Spirit of God, His Intelligence and His Virtue, in order to escape being likened to the mute dogs who, unable to bark, leave Our flocks exposed to the voracity of beasts roaming the fields. Let nothing stop Us, in the fulfillment of Our duty which enjoins Us to suffer all kinds of combats for the Glory of God and the salvation of souls. Let Us constantly keep before Our eyes the picture of HIM who, during HIS lifetime, was also exposed to the opposition of sinners. If we allow ourselves to be shaken by the audacity of evildoers it will be the end of eposcopal strength, the end also of the sublime and divine authority of the Church: moreover, let us abandon even the thought of being Christians if we have reached the point of trembling before the threats or the traps laid for us by perverts'." Leo XII ends this magnificent Encyclical anathematizing Freemasons and writing: "Those men are like those to whom, according to Saint John, the Apostle, hospitality and greetings should be denied. (Second Epistle of St. John, V. 10). They are the same men whom our Fathers, without hesitation, termed the first-born of the devil." Pope Pius VIII 1829-1830 Successor of Leo XII, Pope Pius VIII, in his Encyclical "Traditi", published at the time of his advent on May 21, 1829 renewed all the condemnations of his predecessors, repeating as I showed above, that all Masonic Sects are issued from the "Well of Perdition." It was under his short reign as Pontiff that a new Lodge of "Alta Vendita" was discovered in Rome, having been formed in 1828 and headed by Joseph Picilli as Grand Master. Following Leo XII, Pius VIII most particularly mentions the Sect called "Unitsersitaire," saying: "Its aim is to corrupt youth in schools." and he applies to Masons those words of Saint Leo the Great: "Their law is untruth: their god is the devil and their cult is turpitude." Pope Gregory XVI 1831-1846 On August 15, 1832, Gregory XVI, addressing all the Episcopal Hierarchy of the Catholic world, in his Encyclical: "Mirari Vos" wrote: "Truly indeed we can say that this is the hour granted to the power of darkness to grind the elect as wheat." "Evil comes out of Secret Societies, bottomless abyss of misery, which those conspiring societies have dug and in which heresies and sects have, as may be said, vomited as in a privy all they hold of licentiousness, sacrilege and blasphemy. Just 18 days before his death, on may 13, 1846, Pope Gregory XVI put in the hands of Cretineau Joly, the documents of the Italian Alta Vendita which this author published in 1858 in his book: "L'Eglise Romaine en face de la Revolution" ( the Roman Church facing the Revolution). It would indeed be of the highest kind of interest to have a faithful and complete copy of those manuscripts which are, doubtless, in the Vatican. Pope Pius IX 1848-1878 Let us proceed further. The chief work of Judeo-Masonry planned by Cavour, Mazzini and Garibaldi was reaching its goal under the Pontificate of Pope Pius IX, with the downfall of Papal temporal power. According to the theories of those sectarians of Masonry, such a loss was sure to entail also that of spiritual power; accordingly the new Pope fixed the responsibility for the conspiracy upon the Secret Societies when, in the Encyclical following his advent, he wrote on November 9, 1846: "Venerable Brethren, you also are fully aware of the monstrous errors and devices employed by the children of this century to pursue a merciless war against the Catholic Religion, the Divine Authority of the Church and its laws in order to trample upon the rights of both the Ecclesiastical and Civil power: such is the aim of the guilty machinations against Saint Peter's Roman See, upon which Christ established the inexpugnable foundation of His Church. Such is the aim of those Secret Societies issuing from darkness for the eventual ruin of Religion and States, and which, on several occasions, have already been anathemized by preceding Roman Pontiffs in their Apostolical Letters. We confirm the importance of such Letters and wish them to be followed with great care." Moreover, from Gaete, the place of his exile, in his allocution: "Quibus Quantisque" addressed to the Consistory of April, 1849, Pope Pius IX renewed the identical condemnation in the following terms: "Those abominable sects of perdition which are as fatally destructive of the salvation of souls as of the welfare and peace of secular society have been condemned by Roman Pontiffs, Our predecessors; We have also personally condemned them Ourselves in Our Encyclical Letter of November 9, 1846, addressed to all the Bishops of the Catholic Church, yet today in virtue of Our Supreme Catholic Authority - We, once again, condemn, forbid and anathematize them." The Constitution against Freemasonry and the Secret Societies of which Pope Pius IX speaks are those of Popes Clement XII, Benedict XIV, Leo XII and Pius VIII; he adds his own of November 9, 1846 (Qui Pluribus) in his letter to Monseigneur Darboy, October 26, 1865, concerning the funeral service of Marshall Magnan, Supreme Master of the Order of Freemasons; he adds also, his communication to the Bishop of Olinda (Brazil) of May 29, 1873. The renewed sentences of anathema by Pope Pius IX strike most particularly the satanism of secret societies. In his Encyclical of November 2l, 1873, the Pope writes of them as the synagogue of satan, and addressing its members he had already castigated them (Consistory of December 9, 1854) using to this effect, the words of Christ: "You are of your father the devil and the works of your father you will do." What are those works? Satan is a liar and a murderer from the beginning of the world, Our Lord tells us. Pope Pius IX denounced the great lie of the so-called White Freemasonry, in his Allocution of September 15, 1865 "Multiplices inter" when he says: "And now, in order to satisfy the desire and solicitude of Our Fatherly Heart, there remains for US only to warn and exhort the Faithful who might have associated themselves to Sects of this kind to obey wiser inspirations and to leave those evil assemblies so as to avoid being dragged in the abyss of eternal ruin. "As to all the other faithful, being full of solicitude for their souls, WE strongly exhort them to beware of the perfidious discourses of sectarians who, under a disguise of honesty, are inflamed by an ardent hatred of the Religion of Christ and of all legitimate authority: they have but one thought with the sole aim of exterminating, all Divine and human rights. Let them all be fully conscious of the fact that the affiliates of such sects are as the wolves who, as Our Lord predicted, come disguised with sheeps hide to devour the whole flock: Let the faithful know that such affiliates must be numbered among those with whom the Apostle forbade us to associate, telling us also to even avoid greeting them." Pope Pius IX equally denounced the satanic homicide of Red Masonry in a letter to the Bishop of Olinda (Brazil) in the following words: "The Satanic spirit of the Sect was particularly evidenced, in the past century, during the course of the Revolutions of France which shook the entire world. Such upheavals proved that the total dissolution of human society could be expected unless the forces of this ultra criminal Sect were crushed." That letter was dated May 29, 1873; the latest Masonic and Satanic Revolution at that time was that which in Italy had resulted in making Pope Pius IX "the prisoner of the Vatican." It seems as though the Holy Pontiff was foreseeing such an issue when he uttered his complaint concerning the dual failure of the previous Pontifical condemnations of Masonry. (September 15, 1865). First he referred to the failure of the anti-Masonic endeavor thus: "However, the Apostolic See's efforts have not been crowned with the success that might have been expected. The Masonic Sect of which we speak has been neither defeated nor overthrown: just the reverse, the Sect has developed to such an extent that, in these days of great difficulty, it shows itself everywhere and with impunity and raises a more audacious countenance." Secondly, the Pope outlined the failure of the Catholic side, thus: "Venerable Brethren, We feel deep sorrow and bitterness, when We see that when, according to the Constitutions of Our Predecessors, action is necessary to condemn this Masonic Sect, many of those whose functions and sacerdotal duty should make them ultra vigilant and ardent over such an important cause have, alas! shown themselves indifferent and as though asleep. If some among them believe that the Apsotolic Constitutions, published under sentence of anathema against the Occult Sects and their adepts and initiates carry no strength in those countries where civil authorities tolerate them, they are most assuredly laboring under a serious mistake." "As you well know, Venerable Brethren, We have prohibited and We again today prohibit and condemn this false evil doctrine. In fact let Us ask whether the Sovereign power 'To feed and lead the universal flock' which was vested in Saint Peter by Jesus and through which the Roman Pontiffs received the Supreme Authority that they must exercise in the Church depends from civil power - can such civil power constrain and restrain them in anything whatever? Due to those circumstances and fearing that injudicious people and above all, youth, might be led astray, and in order that silence on Our part might induce anyone to lend protection to error, We have resolved, Venerable Brethren, to raise Our Apostolic Voice - therefore, We hereby confirm before you the Constitutions of Our Predecessors and in virtue of Our Apostolic Authority We hold up to reprobation and We condemn this Masonic Society and all other societies of the same order which, although different in appearance, but pursuing the same aim against the Church or legitimate Civil Power are constantly being formed. It is Our order that all Christians of any standing whatsoever, of any rank or high appointment and over all the earth should be informed that the said Societies are forbidden and reproved by US, and incur the same sentences and condemnations as those that are specified in the former constitutions of our predecessors." Among the reproved societies must be included such Leagues as: the League of Human Rights (Ligue des Droits de L'homme) and the League for Education (Ligue de l'Enseistnement ) . Pope Leo XIII 1878-1903 Pope Leo XIII, successor of Pius IX, upon instructions from the Holy Office, dealt, first of all, with the Brazilian Masonic question on July 2nd, 1878. Then later, addressing the whole Church, on April 20, 1884, Pope Leo XIII published his magnificent Encyclical "Humanum Genus." Taking up once again Saint Augustine's pages concerning the two cities which, on earth, constitute the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Satan, the Pontiff reviews the considerable development which Freemasonry has taken and writes: "Today evil doers all seem allied in a tremendous effort inspired by and with the help of a society powerfully organized and widely spread over the world, it is the Society of Freemasons. In fact those people no longer even try to dissimulate their intentions, but they actually challenge each other's audacity in order to assail God's August Majesty. "It is now publicly and overtly that they undertake to ruin the Holy Church, so as to succeed, if it is possible, in the complete dispossession of Christian nations of all the gifts they owe to Our Savior Jesus Christ. "As a result, in the space of a century and a half, the sect of the Freemasons has made incredible progress. Making use at the same time of audacity and cunning, Masonry has invaded all the ranks of social hierarchy, and in the modern States it has begun to seize a power which is almost equivalent to Sovereignty. In order to strengthen those enlightened observations, Leo XIII refers to his predecessors and writes: "This peril was denounced for the first time by Pope Clement XII in 1738, and the Constitution promulgated by that Pope was renewed and confirmed by Benedict XIV; Pius VII followed in the footsteps of those Pontiffs, and Pope Leo XII including in his Apostolical Constitution 'Quo Graviora' all the deeds and decrees of the preceding Popes on that subject, ratified and confirmed them for ever. Popes Pius VIII, Gregory XVI and on several occasions Pope Pius IX spoke in the same manner." Whereas he approved and confirmed all the Pontifical condemnations issued against Freemasonry from those of Clement XII in 1738, Leo XIII moreover more amply exposed the reason for such actions and gives as his motive for acting thus: "It is because of the fundamental aim and spirit of the Masonic sect which has been exposed in full light through the evident manifestation of its deeds, the acquired knowledge of its principles, its rules, its rites and its commentaries to which have been added the testimonies of its own adepts . . . "It is exceedingly important to bring to the notice of all peoples to what extent events confirmed the wisdom of our predecessors. Their foresight and paternal soticitude did not always attain the desired success. This failure must be ascribed on the one hand either to the dissimulation and cunning of men members of this pernicious sect or, on the other hand, to the imprudent lightness of character of those who should, however, have been highly interested in watching it attentively" Leo XIII refers frequently to the hypocrisy which is the basis of "White Freemasonry" and mentions the fatal evolution of its revolutionary aims which turns it into "Red Masonry." Upon being attentively studied this Encyclical most strikingly reveals the triple Masonic character, namely that its aims are: 1. Counter-Morality 2. Counter-State 3. Counter-Church 1. Counter Morality The Pope defines the Masonic point of view on morality thus: "The only thing which has found grace before the members of the Masonic sect and in which they request that youth should receive the proper teaching is what they call 'Civic Morality', independent morality, free morality, in other words a morality in which religious beliefs find no room. This morality is insufficient and its effects are its own condemnation. "Furthermore there have been found in Freemasonry several sectarians who have maintained that all means are to be systematically used, in order, to saturate the multitudes with licentiousness and vices; because in their opinion peoples would naturally fall into their hands and become the instruments needed for the accomplishment of their most audacious evil projects. Such counter-morality is that of civil marriage, of divorce, of free love and of irreligious education for youth. "It aims at the complete destruction of the main foundations of justice and honesty. In this way Freemasons make themselves the auxiliaries of those who wish that, like an animal, man had no other rule of conduct than his own desires - Such a scheme can only dishonor human kind and ignominiously cast him into perdition." 2. Counter State On this subject Pope Leo XIII foresaw that Freemasonry, "the power which is almost equivalent to sovereignty," and which already occupied the place of "State within the State," would soon form the Super State. It is from such a situation that there was issued the Masonic dogma of separation of Church and State; thence, issued also the anti-religious laws which Brother Bethmont, member of Parliament of the department of Charente Inf'erieure and former President of the Cour Des Comptes, in 1878 was explaining to Monseigneur Pie, Bishop of Poitiers. The prelate then said to him: "Sir, I believe you want to inaugurate anew the fight against the Church; have you any hope of succeeding there, where Nero, Julian the Apostate and your great ancestors of the 1793 French Revolution failed? - He replied: "Your Eminence, at the risk of seeming too bold, I will say that those ,you have mentioned did not quite know how to act. We shall do much better. Violence against the Church leads nowhere, we shall use other means. We shall organize a persecution which shall be both clever and legal; we shall surround the Church with a network of laws, decrees and ordinances which will stifle it without shedding one drop of blood." Who, may I ask, is making those closely woven nets of laws, decrees and ordinances? The State, of course, but it is a Masonic State, an irreligious State under the power of a Super State which at the present moment is the Ruler of the World. When Leo XIII adjures his Venerable Brethren to unite their zeal to his own efforts in order, "to annihilate the impure contagion of the poison which flows in the veins of human society and causes a state of total infection," it is with a feeling of fear that one brings to mind the death sentence pronounced against humanity in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion." "When we introduced into the State organism the poison of Liberalism its whole political complexion underwent a change. States have been seized with a mortal illness - bloodpoisoning. All that remains is to await the end of their death agony." Thus, while States are gravitating toward a Universal Republic, the Super-State becomes an infrangible dictature, which according to its will grinds them down or else thoroughly infects them; that Super State is called Judeo-Masonry. 3. Counter Church Hence the supreme aim of the Sect, as it has been pointed out by the Popes, is none other than the complete destruction of the Church and the Papacy. Pope Leo XIII persistently underscores this rigorous consequence and says: "Since the proper and very special mission of the Catholic Church consists in the safeguarding of the incorruptible purity of the doctrines revealed by God, as well as that of established authority for their teaching and other God given help for the salvation of mankind; it is inevitable that the major antagonism and most violent attacks of the Sect should be directed against the Church . . . Therefore, even at the cost of a lengthy and opinionated labor the Sect's purpose is to reduce to naught the teaching, and authority of the Church among the civilian population. . . "The enmity of the sectarians against the Apostolic See of the Roman Pontiff has increased its intensity . . . until now the evil doers have reached the aim which had, for a long time that of their evil designs, namely, their proclamation that the moment has come to suppress the Roman Pontiff's sacred power and to completely destroy this Papacy which was divinely instituted." Lastly, Leo XIII concludes in unmasking the Satanism of Judeo-Masonry: "The facts which we have reviewed throw sufficient light upon inner constitution of Freemasons and show clearly the road they are following in order to reach their goal. Their chief dogmas are so completely and manifestly opposed to sane reason that it is difficult to imagine deeper perversion. In reality is it not the peak of madness and of the most audacious impiety to be so presumptuous as to want to destroy the religion and the Church created by God Himself: and assured of His perpetual protection; and after 18 centuries to want to replace it with the customs and institutions of pagans? "Still no less horrible nor easy to bear to witness the repudiation of those gifts which, in His mercy, Jesus Christ bestowed first on individuals, then to human beings grouped both in families and in nations. Even the enemies of Christianism acknowledge the supreme value of those gifts. "There is no denying that in this foolish and criminal plan it is easy to understand the implacable hatred and passion for revenge which animate Satan toward Jesus Christ. We refuse to follow the dictates of such iniquitous masters that bear the names of Satan and of all evil passions." Pope Pius X 1903-1914 Pope Pius X, successor of Pope Leo XIII, gave his greater attention to Sillonisme and to Modernism, but, nevertheless he did not forget the destructive work of Freemasonry. He requested the Polish people to abstain from joining any conspiracy schemed by the malevolent Sects. Later he extended words of consolation to the faithful of France in the following words: "And now it is to you, Catholics of France, that We speak; may Our words reach you as a testimony of the tender feeling of Our love for your country and as a consolation in the midst of the terrible calamities through which you must pass. You are well aware of the self-assigned aim of the impious sectarians who hare subjugated you under their yoke. With cynic audacity they themselves proclaimed their aim which was 'Uproot Catholicism in France.' They want to extirpate from your hearts, namely its last root, the Faith which covered your ancestors with glory; the Faith which brought prosperity and greatness to your Fatherland amidst all other nations; the Faith which will be your support in the hours of your tribulation, which maintains calm and peace in your homes and opens for you the way toward eternal happiness. It is this Faith which you yourselves feel has to be defended." Lastly, Pius X loudly affirms that as he has lifted his voice: "It is not the Church who first raised the standard, she did so only because war had been declared against her. "For the last 25 years she has only had to bear the struggle. Such is the Truth. Declarations, a thousand times published and republished in the Press, in congresses, in Masonic conventions, in the very halls of Parliament, are proof in themselves that attacks against the Church have been led progressively and systematically. Such facts cannot be denied and against them mere words cannot prevail . . ." (From letter of Pope Pius X to France, January 6, 1907.) Fundamentally just as did his predecessors, Pius X denounces the maneuvers of the Counter-Church, moreover in his Letter of condemnation of the SILLON, he deliberately designates the Masonic lodges in the following terms: "We all but too well know the dens of darkness wherein those pernicious doctrines are elaborated . . . Clear minds should not be seduced by them." (From letter of Pius X to the French Episcopate August 25, 1910.) Pope Benedict XV 1914-1922 War, Armistice, Peace, all took place under the Pontificate of Benedict XV. In connection with our own viewpoint on Judeo-Masonry, we must point out the Papal condemnation of Ludovic Keller's book: "Le Basi Spirituali Della Massone-Ria E La Vita Publica" (The spiritual foundations of Masonry and the life of the people) published in 1915. That book was condemned on June 15, 1916. Moreover, the letter from the Holy Office of the Vatican to the Ordinaries called upon their vigilant attention because of special new machinations being directed against the Faith by anti-Catholic associations. The association particularly indicated is the Y.M.C.A. (Young Men's Christian Association) which on many occasions has been singled out as being fundamentally Masonic in the "Revue Internationale Des Societes Secretes." The letter from the Holy Office of November 5, 1920 particularly mentions that according to its declaration of principles, the Y.M.C.A. "Intends to purify and spread a more perfect knowledge of real life placing itself above all churches and outside and religious jurisdiction." Such anticlerical transcendentalism is none other than the manifestation of Judeo-Masonry. Furthermore, on the inside cover of our Revue Internationale Des Societes Secretes are reproduced the two letters addressed to me by the Holy See, which are an affirmation of the viewpoint which Pope Benedict XV held on Masonry, the same viewpoint carrying the same condemnations already pronounced by his predecessors since Pope Clement XII. The two letters from the Vatican are herewith reproduced. 1. From Pope Benedict XV to Monseigneur Jouin: "Beloved Son-Greetings and Apostolic Blessing. The eminent virtues which, in the course of your long sacerdotal career, you have shown with such resplendent light added to the high consideration in which you are held by Our Venerable Brother, Jauvier Granito di Belmonte, Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church, Bishop of Albano, as also by the Cardinal Archbishop of Paris, have prompted Our decision to honor you with a great homage. "We do know that you fulfill the obligations of your sacred ministry in the most exemplary manner; that you have the most ardent solicitude for the eternal salvation of the faithful and that with constancy and courage you have upheld the rights of the Catholic Church - and have done so even at the peril of your own life. You have worked against the enemies of religion and We know that you spare neither work nor expenses to spread among the people your great works on those questions . . ." 2. From His Eminence Cardinal Gasparri (State Secretary of His Holiness) to Monseigneur Jouin on June 20, 1919. "The Sovereign Pontiff with his paternal benevolence has accepted the homage of your new study on 'La guerre Maconnique' (The Masonic War). "It is with unerring judgment that in the work which you have undertaken, you have endeavored to project light, by means of documentation and irrefutable proofs, upon the inept and essentially anti-Catholic doctrine of Freemasonry, a doctrine issued from deism born of the Reformation, a doctrine which, as it is today clearly evident, leads fatally to the very denial of God, to social atheism, to irreligious teaching and impiety and is greatly detrimental to nations; it aims at removing from every association every trace of religion and every church mediation. "Above all, in spite of all lies which oftentimes deceive the Catholics themselves, you have carefully and most particularly clearly shown the identity of Freemasonry evident everywhere and always, and the continuity of the plans set by the Sects and whose master design is the destruction of the Catholic Church. "His Holiness takes pleasure in congratulating you and encouraging your work whose influence can, indeed, be so fruitful. It can induce the faithful to be vigilant and help them to fight efficaciously against everything tending to the destruction of the social order as well as of religion. "As evidence of the celestial gifts bestowed upon you and as a testimony of his paternal benevolence, the Holy Father, from his heart bestows upon you the Apostolic Blessing. "Thanking, you also for the copy of your book which you graciously sent me, and with my personal congratulations, I pray you to believe, Monseigneur, in the assurance of my complete devotion. Pope Pius XI 1922 For the first time the word "Laicism" (which means irreligious teaching) is to be found in a Pontifical document; it is the fatal and sought for result of both the Masonic doctrine and its direct action. This fact allows me to add to the list of all the Sovereign Pontiffs who denounced and condemned Judeo-Masonry; the name of our present Pope, Pius XI, in his Encyclical "Maximam grasissimamque" of July 18, 1924, the Pope most clearly has lifted his voice against "Laicism" (irreligious teaching) in the following terms: "Whatetier Pius X did condemn, We likewise condemn it. Every time that the word 'Laicite' (irreligious teaching) is used to convey a feeling or an intention contrary or foreign to God or religion, We condemn it. We fully reprove this 'Laicism' and We openly declare that it must be reproved." In my own case, during the private audience which on November 16, 1923, he granted me, His Holiness, Pius XI, asked me to continue my fight against Freemasonry because, said he: "Masonry is our mortal enemy." Later, as I was recollecting the kind words addressed to me by Pope Benedict XV in the decree "Proestantes": "With constancy and courage you have upheld the rights of the Catholic Church and have done so even at the peril of your life." and adding that so far I had not yet become the victim of Freemasons, His Holiness replied in a paternal manner: "Did not Saint Augustine, who is the patron of your parish in Paris, speak of the martyrs of the pen? (The Parish of which Monseigneur Jouin was head for many years and until his death was called Saint Augustine.) Such a denunciation of "Laicism" as well as the encouragement given me to continue the fight against Masonry confirm the Pontifical condemnations pronounced since Pope Clement XII; it also follows the inspired words of Pope Leo XIII: "In the realm of spiritual salvation, there is no middle way: one either follows the road to perdition or else fights without limit to the very end." Therefore, our conclusion is contained in just two words: unity of purpose and viewpoint and unity of action shown by the Sovereign Pontiffs in regard to Freemasonry. Fifteen years after the publication of the Constitutions of Anderson in 1723, there appeared the constitution "In Eminenti" of Pope Clement XII April 28, 1738. Is there in the history of the Church a heresy which met with such a swift condemnation? Another fact equally remarkable is that all the Popes based their ulterior condemnations on this Pontifical act of Clement XII showing clearly that there was but one Voice, but one cry of disapproval when it came to pronounce the anathema against Secret Societies and striking their members with the most rigorous censure which the Church can apply. Even though incomplete, here follows a list of documents as proof of the above: Clement XII: In Eminenti - April 28, 1738 Benedict XIV: Providas - March 16, 1751 Clement XIII: A. Quodie - Sept. 14, 1758 Clement XIII: Ut Primum - Sept. 3, 1759 Clement XIII: Christianae Reipublicae Salus - Nov. 25, 1766 Pius VI: Inscrutabile - Dec. 25, 1775 Pius VII: Ecclesiam a Jesu Christo - Sept. 14, 1820 Leo XII: Quo Graviora - March 13, 1826 Pius VII: Traditi - May 21, 1829 Gregory XVI: Mirari Vos - Aug. 15, 1832 Pius IX: Qui Pluribus - Nov 9, 1846 Pius IX: Omnibus Quantisque - April 20, 1849 Pius IX: Multiplices Inter - Sept 25, 1865 Leo XIII: Humanum Genus - April 20, 1884 Leo XIII: Letter to Italian Episcopate - Dec. 8, 1892 Leo XIII: Letter to the Italian People - Dec. 8, 1892 Pius X: Vehementer - Feb 11, 1906 Pius X: Letter to France - Jan 6, 1907 Add to this the condemnation of the Y.M.C.A. by the Holy Office, Nov. 5, 1920 and also the decree through which I was made a Prelate, signed by Pope Benedict XV, followed by the Letter of Cardinal Gasparri, praising my book: Guerre Maconnique (Masonic War). Then again remember the Encyclical of His Holiness Pius XI against irreligious teaching in schools and his encouragement to me to continue my anti-Judeo-Masonic fight, and you will thus have before you a chain whose links are inseparably united. It is this unity of viewpoints which demonstrates that the Papacy has but one voice and is the judiciary power of those Societies which actually form the whole of Judeo-Masonry. As to the unity of action of the Popes, it is also worthy of attention. Ever since 1738 all the Sovereign Pontiffs have denounced, stigmatized and condemned the great harlot of the 20th century, that "Well of Perdition," "Bottomless Abyss of Misery which was dug by those conspiring Societies in which the Heresies and Sects have, it may be said, vomited as in a privy, everything they held in their insides of Sacrilige and Blasphemy." (Leo XIII.) Ever since 1738 all the Sovereign Pontiffs denounced, stigmatized and condemned the enemy of the State which, according to Pope Leo XIII, already during the past century, possessed a power almost equivalent to "Sovereignty" and which, toady, calls itself the Super-State. Ever since 1738 all the Sovereign Pontiffs denounced, stigmatized and condemned the enemy of the Church, the Counter-Church, whose proclaimed aim is to: "Decatholicize the world" It seeks to rebuild on the ashes of the Christian civilization the pagan barbarism, and to build on the ruins of the Papacy the world domination of Israel; furthermore, as a sign of its victory, it wants to erect over the overthrown throne of Jesus Christ the very throne of Satan. Ever since 1738 all the Sovereign Pontiffs denounced, stigmatized and condemned what has hitherto become the world evolution of Judeo-Masonry which, now, on earth, admits that it has but one adversary, namely, the Catholic Church, whose agony it is now witnessing. However, the Popes equally deplore the indifference of those Catholics who fail to see Their silent tears and fail to heed Their heart-rending appeals; they constitute a race of people indifferent and asleep, a string of Mute Hounds, afraid, of whom Pope Clement XIII, said: "If We allow ourselves to be shaken by the audacity of evil-doers, then the Episcopal strength is come to an end; the sublime and divine authority of the Church no longer exists; it is then useless to look upon ourselves as Christians if we have sunk so low as to tremble before the threats of the snares of the evil-doers." Being anxious to be neither indifferent nor asleep, nor again a Mute Hound in the Church Militant, but to be on the contrary, even though from afar, linked to the dogs of the Lord, the "Dominicani" of whom in the 13th century spoke Jeanne d'Aza, mother of Saint Dominique, at the time of the Church struggle against the Albigenses; in order also not to be counted among the cowards who flee from the battlefield and whom, when in 1870 the Germans invaded France Saint Bernadette said: "I fear only the bad Christians" for such reasons I founded the "Revue Internationale Des Societes Secretes." I, today also want to thank all the companions who in this struggle, both in work and in prayer have allied themselves with my humble but persevering efforts. Yes! let us of the league of St. Michael remain united in prayer for the conversion of Masons and Jews. Let us be united in our efforts to respond to the concordant voice of the Sovereign Pontiffs, in order to destroy, inasmuch as lies in our possibilities, the Judeo-Masonic Sect. When will this be? In God's own hour which seems to be very close. What can be done against this world power? Everything! In the strength of Him who bears on His shoulder the invincible sign of His power; we can accomplish everything in the power of Him who Christianized the world and which, in the end, Judeo-Masonry, can neither de-Christianize nor re-Paganize - Yes! we can accomplish everything in the strength of Him whose Holy Sepulchre or the dome of Saint Peter in Rome cannot be darkened by the shadows cast by the Masonic Lodges - the Kabbalistic mysteries of the Ghettos will not alter a single iota of the Gospel or of the Credo; the accumulation of gold in the hands of high finance will ever fail to buy the conscience of Christ's representative in the Vatican. Vade Satana! Get thee behind me Satan with thy legions of rebellious angels, with thy early workers of iniquity the Judeo-Masons! Christ is near! To-day He comes! Tomorrow He will be here! Let us therefore say, according to the words of Saint Augustine: Dicamus In Fide, let us say in the full energy of our faith; Dicamus In Spe: let us say in the strength of our hope; Dicamus Flagfantissima Caritate: Let us say in the burning fervor of our charity: If God is with us, who can prevail against us? (Si Deus Pro Nobis, Quis Contra Nos?) God is with us in this fight, which is our fight, the fight of the Papacy against Judeo-Masonry. ...

An Introduction to Bro. Albert Pike's Morals and Dogma. By Bro. Jay Halpern. My acquaintance with Pike's work, "Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry", was a matter of chance. I happened upon it in an antique center and was immediately drawn to its erudition, its scope and its willingness to portray the sort of symbolism and arcana that drew me to Freemasonry in the first place. I determined to let his words speak for themselves, and play upon my own knowledge of American and world history, philosophy and political theory to make their point. What I found, much to my delight, was how far Pike's work took me beyond the parameters of pure Masonic lore and into the realm of political and economic theory that had been trod by the greatest minds of the past, like Plato, Plutarch, and the philosophical synthesizers of all ages. It became clear to me, in this regard, that M&D was far more than a Masonic tract. Pike placed Freemasonry and its structure and symbols within two very broad contexts: the religious and spiritual history of the world, stretching far beyond even the building of Solomon's Temple; and the human drama of vanquished peoples coping with the oppressive moral and political climate of defeat in war. For I think it's impossible to understand the significance of M&D without perceiving Pike's spiritual and philosophical outcry against the predations made against the former Confederacy of the American South by the conquering armies and politicians of the United States federal government. Albert Pike was a Confederate general of high moral principles, as is evident throughout M&D. We in the North have been schooled in the history of the victor; the story of the origins of the conflict between the states would, of course, have been written very differently had the fortunes of war gone differently. Having been taught the principle of loyalty to one's national government from childhood, we in the north find it difficult, if not impossible, to conceive of the Confederate rebellion as anything other than an act of betrayal of national principles, a breaking of the most sacred trust that had been forged between states by blood spilled during our mutual revolution from England. Pike writes in the very beginning of M&D: "The nations are not bodiespolitic alone, but also soulspolitic; and woe to that people which, seeking the material only, forgets that it has a soul. A free people, forgetting that it has a soul to be cared for, devotes all its energies to its material advancement. If it make war, it is to subserve its commercial interests. The citizens copy after the State, and regard wealth, pomp, and luxury as the great goods of life. Such a nation creates wealth rapidly, and distributes it badly. Thence the two extremes, of monstrous opulence and monstrous misery; all the enjoyment to a few, all the privations to the rest, that is to say, to the people; Privilege, Exception, Monopoly, Feudality, springing up from Labor itself: a false and dangerous situation, which, making Labor a blinded and chained Cyclops, in the mine, at the forge, in the workshop, at the loom, in the field, over poisonous fumes, in miasmatic cells, in unventilated factories, founds public power upon private misery, and plants the greatness of the State in the suffering of the individual. It is a greatness ill constituted, in which all the material elements are combined, and into which no moral element enters. If a people, like a star, has the right of eclipse, the light ought to return. The eclipse should not degenerate into night." To Pike's way of thinking, the Southern agrarian economy had purposefully eschewed the ways of industrialization and the market forces that had been so warmly embraced by the North. What Albert Pike saw in his own time was the forced encrustation of an agrarian, democratic dream by an imposed industrial capitalism from the North, and he saw himself as spokesman for a free people, now under tyranny, clutching to save its soul. Pike regarded Masonry as a potential framework upon which to retain the noblest and highest ideals once held by the defeated South. Hear his words, then, written in occupation and defeat, regarding this Brotherhood: "And Masonry, like History and Philosophy, has eternal duties eternal, and, at the same time, simple. The people that would be Free and Independent, must possess Sagacity, Forethought, foresight, and careful Circumspection, all which are included in the meaning of the word Prudence. It must be temperate in asserting its rights, temperate in its councils, economical in its expenses; it must be bold, brave, courageous, patient under reverses, undismayed by disasters, hopeful amid calamities. She must, above all things, be just, not truckling to the strong and warring on or plundering the weak; she must act on the square with all nations, and the feeblest tribes; always keeping her faith, honest in her legislation, upright in all her dealings. Whenever such a Republic exists, it will be immortal: for rashness, injustice, intemperance and luxury in prosperity, and despair and disorder in adversity, are the causes of the decay and dilapidation of nations." Albert Pike was a man of broad scholarship, comfortably familiar with the great documents of history, and familiar with the reports of human anthropology and sociology written, with varying degrees of insight and accuracy, by scholars and historians from all times and places. There isn't an indigenous culture, whether primitive or advanced, that Pike doesn't applaud to the degree that its native peoples adhere to the tenets of yeoman culture, of honesty and brotherhood from soul to soul. Indeed, Pike quite clearly states that Masonic ideals transcend all eras and peoples. In his chapter on the Royal Arch of Solomon, he writes, "Even Blue Masonry cannot trace back its authentic history, with its present Degrees, further than the year 1700, if so far. But, by whatever name it was known in this or the other country, Masonry existed as it now exists, the same in spirit and at heart, not only when Solomon built the temple, but centuries before before even the first colonies emigrated into Southern India, Persia, and Egypt, from the cradle of the human race." (Italics the author) Principle Transcends Degree Work and Ritual Thus, to Pike, the principles he found in Freemasonry far transcended the petty formalism of degree work and ritual. He looked into the past for role models whose lives best represented what he considered Masonic ideals, and philosophies that represented what he felt were meaningful paradigms for living the good and virtuous life. His search was broad and unprejudiced and he remarked regarding the appropriateness of holy texts as one of the Great Lights of a Lodge: "The Hebrew Pentateuch in a Hebrew Lodge, and the Koran in a Mohammedan one, belong on the Altar; and one of these, and the Square and Compass, properly understood, are the Great Lights by which a Mason must walk and work." Pike saw in this Masonic ideal the restatement of the Eleusinian Mysteries, and Orphism, and ythagoreanism, and the noble, secret faiths of every ancient generation viewed in its best and most profound light. "We have no other concern with your religious creed," Pike states outright, but for swearing oaths on whatever document commands one's particular heartfelt honor. Pike is drawn to the symbols of Freemasonry, drawn as they are from the most ancient occult creeds, for two reasons. The first reason derives from his status as a defeated general, a man of honor residing under what he perceives as a tyranny of occupation. Pike writes, "Despots are an aid to thinkers. Speech enchained is speech terrible. The writer doubles and triples his style, when silence is imposed by a master upon the people. There springs from this silence a certain mysterious fullness, which filters and freezes into brass in his thoughts." Thus, living under the despotism of the federal U.S., Pike writes his tome compressed between blocks of symbols and arcana that disguise his ancillary intent, to write a missive that will keep the idealism of the South alive during occupation. Pike heralds a warning to his Southern brethren that there will be a price to pay if their path is lost. History demonstrates that nations in their hour of darkest need, turn to the worst rulers: "We should naturally suppose that a nation in distress would take counsel with the wisest of its sons. But, on the contrary, great men seem never so scarce as when they are most needed, and small men never so bold to insist on infesting place, as when mediocrity and incapable pretence and sophomoric greenness, and showy and sprightly incompetency are most dangerous." The result, of course, is that revolutions begun for the purpose of empowering the people, result in new tyrannies: the rule of Cromwell, of Napoleon, of Stalin. Pike adds rather boldly, "That is a sad and true allegory which represents the companions of Ulysses changed by the enchantments of Circe into swine," meaning by Ulysses, of course, Ulysses S. Grant, the new "tyrant" over the South. "The North Ruled With An Iron Fist.." The fact that the U.S. federal government is, itself, a republic, and not a tyranny, doesn't let if off the hook, in Pike's view; the economic system of the North rules with a tyrant's fist: When civil war tears the vitals of a Republic, let it look back and see if it has not been guilty of injustices; and if it has, let it humble itself in the dust!" From Pike's perspective, it is the mercantile system of industrial politics, in contradistinction to the agrarian idealism of the South, that caused the rupture between the states and propelled the nation into civil war. The restrictions established against the expansion of slavery into the new territories of the West, for example, appeared to Southern gentry like Pike to be a serious and unmitigated infringement upon what they took to be the backbone of the Constitutional compromise, the balance between states' rights and federal authority. And in back of that infringement lay industrial mercantilism, the rank capitalism that was to lead to the Gilded Age, the Age of Morgan and Astor and Gould and the rest of the Robber Barons. And, of course, we are not Masons living in the South during Reconstruction; we are not defeated warriors living under occupation. The past is still the past, and therein lies, in my opinion, a great deal of the intellectual fascination Pike's work holds for me, as a Mason. As I read his work, I try and extrapolate just how such a man of both word and deed could be expected to make his theories manifest themselves in the worldatlarge. He is charged by many with helping to found the Ku Klux Klan, an active resistance movement against the federal forces stationed throughout the South. I can well imagine Pike putting deeds to his words and, when faced with the apolitical stance of Masonry then and now, seeking to found a similar body, an offshoot with degrees and symbols and occult titles, that would more vigorously pursue a spiritual cum political transformation throughout the South. But I'd find it difficult to imagine the Klansman as we know him today, ignorant, selfimportant, anarchistic, hateful against all religions and races other than his own, to be the kind of soldier Pike would have called to his spiritual cause. Perhaps the KKK was an experiment that failed in its infancy and went off in the wrong direction, a subterranean cell of political and spiritual theorists turned redneck racists at the starting gate. I can then imagine Pike even more disgruntled and perhaps misanthropic after his years of theorizing and propagating his philosophy. An Infinite Variety of Mankind... It is evident from the symbolic portions of M&D that Pike was too intrigued by the infinite variety of mankind, its religions, its cultures, its spiritual struggles against the forces of darkness, to be blithely classed with the racists we have come to expect from a racist culture. It is true that in some societies Pike allows for slavery; didn't, in fact, the whole Greek and Roman world, packed full of philosophers, depend upon it as an institution? Pike writes, "Influence of man over man is a law of nature, whether it be by a great estate in land or in intellect. It may mean slavery, a deference to the eminent human judgment (italics mine)." He writes elsewhere, "The wiser a man becomes, the less will he be inclined to submit tamely to the imposition of fetters or a yoke, on his conscience or his person. For, by increase of wisdom he not only better knows his rights, but the more highly values them, and is more conscious of his worth and dignity. His pride then urges him to assert his independence. He becomes better able to assert it also; and better able to assist others or his country, when they or she stake all, even existence, upon the same assertion. In Pike's day there was neither theory nor technology for social redemption. Certain forms of maladaptive behavior, certain affects of acculturation, were considered irredeemable and, at best, served as lessons to the rest of us who weren't so afflicted. In other words, slaves are both the victims of their masters, and by remaining enslaved, eventually deteriorate until they are worthy of their slavery. Don't mistake, however, my attempting to understand Pike's conception of slavery given his philosophy and spirituality with a justification. It is here that Pike and I part company, just as I part company with Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, whose philosophic leisure depended upon a slavebased culture. I merely wish to paint as broad a portrait of the man who wrote M&D as I can, given my studies so far. I can sympathize with Archie Stone's perplexity; here, in this remarkable book, sidebyside with drawings of occult symbols, Hebrew icons, Masonic forms, and all manner of diagrams and arcana, is embedded a political and social tract that is the proudly defiant outcry of one man against a nation that has overrun his own. It's easy for me to understand the veneration in which Pike's held by Masons in the Southern Jurisdiction; he represents, to them, the epitome of Southern aristocratic learning, philosophy and values. His words ring, and will always ring, alongside all other worldclass philosophers who saw their societies crumbling from greed and mercantilism. It will, I'm sure, surprise some that a Northern Masonic Jew, a man with ingrained Northern and urban sympathies for multiculturalism and the enlightened use of technology, could glean so much from a man like Albert Pike, a man so different. But I feel that, at bottom, the spiritual truths that have always brought true Masons together, whether in formal Lodge or by informal happenstance, with or without Masonic sanction, are truths that we both share and for whose fullness and radiance we continue to search. That part of contemporary Masonry which falls short of these truths, would, I feel, disturb Pike as much as they disturb me. I can only wish to meet and mingle with brothers who will pursue more light in Masonry with the passion, erudition and reverence that Albert Pike put into his impressive work.

ADVERTISEMENT. I need offer no apology for presenting to the public this volume of Gen. Albert Pike's Poems; the poems are too good to be lost, and I wonder that a collection of the author's writings has not been published for general circulation long since. Being a great admirer of those of the poems which I had read, I sought and obtained the sanction of the celebrated author's daughter, Miss Lilian Pike, since become Mrs. Roome, to publish same, and induced her to write the accompanying splendid biographical sketch of her honored father. I was encouraged to carry out a previous resolution to publish the book by reading the following tribute to the author, contributed to T/te Gazette iuMsLy, 1899, by Mrs. Eldridge Greening, of Camden, Ark., who regretted, "that with his unquestioned poetic genius, he did not give to the world a book of poems, such as he only could produce, and write his name on Fame's glorious temple, beside those of the greatest poets of the past and present age:— " "The fugitive verses of Albert Pike, going the rounds of the press, did more to arouse a literary feeling throughout the State and direct attention to the literary capabilities of the South than volumes of Tennj-son, in red and gold, could have done. His name must necessarily stand at the head of the list of Arkansas authors, for it was in this iState he composed nearly, if not all, of his famous poems, and it was of the State he loved so well he wrote and sang with exceeding sweetness. He gave us, more than any other writer, a distinct place in the literature of the country. His simple, melodious verses touched the hearts of thousands, and gave him and the State a worldwide fame. His record is made. With the fleeting years his name as a writer of standard, wholesome poetry will not vanish, but grow brighter and brighter. Arkansas will always honor the name of Albert Pike. 'Every Year,' with its simple pathos, will forever enshrine itself in every Southern heart." I trust that the volume may receive a welcome. Fred. W. Allsopp. ...

Introduction. Paul Foster Case (1884-1954), author of this treatise, is known to students of occultism as the outstanding authority of Tarot, Qabalah, Alchemy and related subjects of the Western Occult Tradition. His other publications, including The True and Invisible Rosicrucian Order; Tarot, Key to the Wisdom of the Age;. The Great Seal of the United States; The Magical Language; The Book of Tokens, bear witness to his deep insight and wonderfully readable approach to these subjects. The present work makes it clear that his knowledge included a thorough understanding of the Masonic tradition. In it he develops the unmistakable link that exists between the Masonic degrees and rituals and the Qabalistic tradition. He shows that Masonry cannot be fully appreciated or understood without knowledge of the Qabalistic Tree of Life and its insight into the true nature of man and of the Cosmos. One of the outstanding concepts he develops is the relationship between the geometry upon which the building and architectural symbolism of Masonry are based and the Gematria of the Qabalists, which is a system of number correspondences to words and phrases that reveals the inner meanings behind the numbers, measurements and geometrical proportions prominent in both the Old and New Testaments. The contributions of Paul Case to students of the spiritual goes beyond the works mentioned above. He founded BUILDERS OF THE ADYTUM, a non-profit religious organization which disseminates a spiritual training system based on his works in graded lesson form through the mail. It is a system that allows sincere aspirants of the present day to receive training that in past ages was available only to the few who could enter a Mystery school and completely withdraw, at least temporarily, from society and the concerns of the outer world. Paul Case was charged with the responsibility, by a Master of the Inner School, of preserving, extending and updating the Ancient Wisdom that has existed since the beginning of the World. His outstanding contribution is that he has left us a clear, graded system for spiritual development that enables us to fully retain our relationships and responsibilities in the modern world while gradually but surely unfolding insight into the higher ones. ...

AUTHOR'S NOTE. In reply to numerous enquiries as to whether the statements I made in The French Revolution have since been disproved, I take this opportunity to say that, as far as I am aware, no one has attempted to bring forward any contrary evidence. The Socialist press was completely silent, whilst hostile reviewers in the general press contented themselves with saying the work was " biassed," but without quoting chapter and verse in support of this assertion. My book was not intended to be the last word on the French Revolution, but the first attempt, in English, to tell the truth, and had my view on any essential point been shown to be erroneous, I should have been perfectly ready to readjust it in further editions. No such honest challenge was made, however; my opponents preferring the method of creating prejudice against my work by attributing to me views I never expressed. Thus, at the moment of this book going to press, it has been brought to my notice that I am represented as having attacked British Freemasonry. This can only have been said in malice, as I have always clearly differentiated between British and Continental masonry, showing the former to be an honourable association not only hostile to subversive doctrines but a strong supporter of law, order, and religion. (See The French Revolution, pp. 20 and 492.) I am in fact indebted to certain distinguished British masons for valuable help and advice in my work, which I here gratefully acknowledge. FOREWORD. Amongst all the books, pamphlets, and newspaper articles that are now devoted to the World Revolution through which we are passing, it is strange to notice how little scientific investigation is being brought to bear on the origins of the movement. A frequent explanation advanced, and, I believe, the most fallacious, is that the present unrest must be attributed to " war weariness." Human nature, we are told, exasperated by the protracted horror of the recent international conflict, has become the victim of a crise de nerfs which finds its expression in world-wide discontent. In support of this theory we are reminded that former wars have likewise been followed by periods of social disturbance, and that by a process of analogy the symptoms may be expected to subside as the strain of war is relieved, in the same manner as they have subsided hitherto. It is true that political conflicts between nations have frequently in the past been followed by social upheavals — the Napoleonic Wars by industrial troubles in England, the Franco- Prussian War by revolutionary agitation not only in the land of the conquered, but of the conquerors — but to regard these social manifestations as the direct outcome of the preceding international conflict is to mistake contributing for fundamental causes. Revolution is not the product of war, but a malady that a nation suffering from the after-effects of a war is most likely to develop, just as a man enfeebled by fatigue is more liable to contract disease than one who is in a state of perfect vigour. Yet this predisposing cause is by no means essential to the outbreak of revolutionary fever. The great French Revolution was not immediately preceded by a war of any magnitude, and to the observant mind England in 1914 was as near to revolution as in 1919. The intervening World War, far from producing the explosion in this country, merely retarded it by rallying citizens of all classes around the standard of national defence. The truth is that for the last one hundred and fortyfive years the fire of revolution has smouldered steadily beneath the ancient structure of civilization, and already at moments has burst out into flame threatening to destroy to its very foundations that social edifice which eighteen centuries have been spent in constructing. The crisis of today is then no development of modern times, but a mere continuation of the immense movement that began in the middle of the eighteenth century. In a word, it is all one and the same revolution — the revolution that found its first expression in France of 1789. Both in its nature and its aims it differs entirely from former revolutions which had for their origin some localized or temporary cause. The revolution through which we are now passing is not local but universal, it is not political but social, and its causes must be sought not in popular discontent, but in a deep-laid conspiracy that uses the people to their own undoing. In order to follow its course we must realize the dual nature of the movement by studying concurrently the outward revolutionary forces of Socialism, Anarchism, etc., and the hidden power behind them as indicated in the chart accompanying this work. The present writer believes that hitherto no book has been written on precisely these lines ; many valuable works have been devoted to secret societies, others to the surface history of revolution, but none so far has attempted to trace the connection between the two in the form of a continuous narrative. The object of this book is therefore to describe not only the evolution of Socialist and Anarchist ideas and their effects in succeeding revolutionary outbreaks, but at the same time to follow the workings of that occult force, terrible, unchanging, relentless, and wholly destructive, which constitutes the greatest menace that has ever confronted the human race. Parts of Chapters I and III appeared in The Nineteenth Century and After, and certain later passages in The Morning Post. ...
