In the previous installment in this series, we established the centrality of war to the elite’s occult doctrine of transformism. This occult doctrine has presented itself under numerous appellations, but its core theme has remained the same: humanity is gradually evolving towards apotheosis. The most recent incarnation of this doctrine is Darwinism, which depicts life as an enormous struggle to survive. On the microcosmic level, this struggle is bodied forth by the competition between species. On a macrocosmic level, this struggle manifests itself as war between nations. In hopes of facilitating the purported evolutionary ascent of man, the power elite has instigated war after war. In this installment, we shall examine how the ruling class manufactured World War I.
Europe’s Descent into War
In a 1982 interview, Reece Committee staff director Norman Dodd discussed startling revelations made during the minutes of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace:
We are at the year 1908, which was the year that the Carnegie began operations, and in that year, the trustees meeting for the first time, raised a specific question, which they discussed throughout the balance of the year in a very learned fashion. And the question is, Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people? They conclude that no more effective means than war, to that end, is known to humanity.(Qutd. in Zahner 86)
The Carnegie Endowment’s conclusion reflected the alchemical presupposition of its elitist progenitors. Radical societal change stipulated warfare. In fact, factions of the elite had already created the political climate necessary for a conflict of frightening magnitude. During the late 18th century, the Rothschild dynasty had successfully promulgated rivalry between European nations (Griffin 235). Simultaneously, this banking family would finance both sides in their ongoing skirmishes (235). An arms race ensued, creating political tensions that would eventually crescendo with the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand (235).
One of the major conspirators in the assassination of Ferdinand was Colonel Dragutin Dimitrijevic, chief of Serbian military intelligence and member of a secret society called “The Black Hand” (Still 154). A 1952 Masonic publication claims that Ferdinand’s assassin, Gavrilo Princep, was a Freemason acting at the behest of Dimitrijevic. Ferdinand’s death plunged the Balkan states into war. Thanks to an entangling alliance system, Europe eventually plunged into war as well.
The Lusitania Conspiracy: Entangling America
Initially, the American people were staunchly opposed to entering the war. However, shadowy powers within the Wilson administration were already engineering America’s entanglement in the conflict. Colonel Edward Mandell House, the hidden power behind the Wilson presidency, even entertained potential scenarios for the nation’s entry into the global fray. This is evidenced by a discussion between House and Sir Edward Grey, the Foreign Secretary of England:
Grey: What will America do if the Germans sink an ocean liner with American passengers on board?
House: I believe that a flame of indignation would sweep the United States and that by itself would be sufficient to carry us into war. (Simpson 134)
The Lusitania provided the sacrificial lamb on the altar of perpetual war. On May 7, 1915, the ill-fated ocean liner disembarked. Six days later, it was torpedoed by a German U-boat. The ship had its escort removed and then was sent into waters that Winston Churchill, then the First Lord of the Admiralty, knew to be infested with German U-boats (59). The boat was loaded with six million rounds of ammunition, courtesy of J.P. Morgan and Company. This cargo made the Lusitania a prime target of U-boat attacks. Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan even urged the President to warn Americans not to board the Lusitania. Wilson ignored the warnings (89). To avoid incrimination, Wilson had the Lusitania’s original manifest concealed in the Treasury archives (264-65).
Planting the Seeds of WWII
The sinking of the Lusitania produced the desired effects. Indignation swept across America. A people who once shied away from foreign entanglements were now taking up the interventionist banner. This interventionist crusade was labeled “the war to end all wars”. However, the Treaty of Versailles proved this label to be very misleading. Built into the body of the treaty was the means by which yet another global conflict could be facilitated. Ralph Epperson elaborates:
One of the planks of the Treaty called for large amounts of war reparations to be paid to the victorious nations by the German government. This plank of the Treaty alone caused more grief in the German nation than any other and precipitated three events:
- The “hyperinflation” of the German mark between 1920 and 1923;
- The destruction of the middle class in Germany; and
- The bringing to power of someone who could end inflation; a dictator like Adolf Hitler. (261)
The fact that the seeds of future conflict had been planted was obvious to the more perceptive observers. One such individual was the British Foreign Secretary Lord Curzon, who stated: “This is no peace; this is only a truce for twenty years” (261). This prediction could almost be considered prophetic. World War Two began in 1939, twenty years after the 1918 Versailles Treaty.
How did World War I tangibly enact the power elites’ evolutionary script? As I stated in the first installment of this series, wars actually represent incremental phases in a process of coalitional integration. The end of that integration is to be a world government. World War I provided the catalyst for the formation of the League of Nations, which was intended to be the first fully functional world government. This international organization drew the support of many, including France’s Grand Orient Lodge of Freemasonry: “It is the duty of universal Freemasonry to give its full support to the League of Nations…” (Webster 59). Of course, the Masonic Lodge had played an integral role in the development and promulgation of Darwinism. During its popularization, evolutionary theory had been extended into the realm of political science. Evidently, the hidden alchemists of war believed the League to be the next step in humanity’s political evolution.
However, the alchemists were not to have their way with this attempt. The United States Senate was made up of more discerning individuals during that period of time. Wilson was unable to convince the Senate to ratify the League’s charter. Warren G. Harding voiced America’s sentiments: “It will avail nothing to discuss in detail the League covenant, which was conceived for world super-government. In the existing Leagues of Nations, world government with its super powers, this Republic will have no part” (Epperson 262). Without American participation, the League did not survive infancy.
In the next installment, I will examine the engineering of World War II and its role in the fulfillment of the evolutionary script.
