I read so many posts on here from people claiming these revolutions are staged, this is the work of backroom deals and organizations yet to show their
face to us, but do we know if this is true? Please remember history, this is not the first time a great awakening was linked to secret societies and
organizations. The Revolution in France of the 1790s was also tied to the works of secret societies which had manipulated the public into following
them blindly into the abyss.
In his "Preliminary Discourse", Barruel defines the three forms of conspiracy as the "conspiracy of impiety" against God and Christianity,
the "conspiracy of rebellion" against kings and monarchs, and "the conspiracy of anarchy" against society in general.
Augustin Barruel was a French writer who had made the shocking allegation that the entire French Revolution had been staged by the Freemasons to
overthrow what Europe had always known and trusted to bring about anarchy and chaos to usher in an era where their ideals and politics reign supreme.
This could be interpreted as changing out one set of ruling dictators for another. Which was what many traditionalists during the French Revolution
were saying, they claimed this would overthrow the natural aristocracy and replace it with money grubbing materialists run by the Freemasons and
Here he found that the philosophes had created an age of pretend philosophy which they used in their battle with Christianity. Their commitment
to liberty and equality were really commitments of "pride and revolt". Barruel claimed that the proponents of the Enlightenment led people into
illusion and error and refers to the philosophes as "Writers of this species, so far from enlightening the people, only contribute to lead them into
the path of error".
Was Barruel just a figurehead fighting to preserve the traditional order which had dominated not only France but almost all of Europe for centuries?
Were his attacks unjustified and ungrounded? Could he have simply been a counterrevolutionary which had one goal in mind, return the alter, the
throne, and the state? There are many whom argue this point, he was simply fighting back to preserve his invested interests or distorted reality to
bring down the entire Enlightenment movement.
The destruction of monarchies in Europe led to the triumph of the Jacobins as they trampled "underfoot the altars and the thrones in the name of
that equality and that liberty which summon the peoples to the disasters of revolution and the horrors of anarchy".
Maybe the fact was that Barruel put together all the pieces of the puzzle using Enlightenment principles of thought to tear down those who actually
sought to conspire against all of society. Could Barruel have been right in his criticism and his work shown the truth face of the revolution and
those who were behind the curtain, pulling the strings? With his consistent assault upon the philosophes and Enlightenment thinkers he was savagely
attacked by them which led to many thinking he might have been right.
He believed the Freemasons kept their words and aims secret for many years but on August 12, 1792, two days after the fall of the French
monarchy, they ran though the streets openly announcing their secrets. The secret words were "Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity" and the secret aim
was the overthrow of the French monarchy and the establishment of the republic.
Over 200 years later his trilogy has been virtually forgotten and/or ignored,
Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism
the serious questions he raised have never been fully answered to this day. I was reminded of this book and this author tonight while I was reading a
response to a thread in which the poster claimed this was all staged, the events in the Middle East, by some shadowy organization or government.
Could we just all be completely filled with conspiratorial thoughts it is driving us into a state of paranoia? Could these uprisings have been staged
or planned by a shadowy organization? Could the Enlightenment and the subsequent revolutions been directed by the Freemasons and Illuminati? So many
questions, so few answers.
