Originally posted by Avatar777I thought that Bavarian Illuminati were fighting against tyranny such as religious domination and
monarchy. They were fighting for liberty and believed that humans mustn't let others to rule over them. It looks like they were anarchists rather
than communists. Even Thomas Jefferson in his letter approved Adam Weishaupt's ideology and actions.
No.... Weishaupt shared a disdain for the tyranny of the Catholic church in his day to be true. However where as Freemasons wanted to reform the
church, and or provide free republics, and religious freedom, it was Weishaupt's desire to replace it with a tyranny of his own. One in which there
was a communal state...(marxism didn't exist, marx didn't exit but it had that bent....) It would be led by an elite, of which he and his chosen
would lead all others. All religions would be destroyed, and no one would be able to choose to worship in their own way....
It was a time when the Catholic Church had really hit it's low point in moral corruption, and had beome a tyranant and materialistic institution
quite lost from it's spiritual role......many opposed it. However where as some wanted to free men from tyranny, others like Weishaupt merely wished
to replace it with one of his own making....he attempted to graft his organization to the masons but they failed....the Illuminati would disolve,
however his idea would not, and it has come back countless times under new names. The closest I have seen to his ideals were realized in the Soviet
Union, perhaps even more so would be the ideals of the Fabian Society.....I have neever seen any proof that those movements desended directly by
anyone involved or not. So I have no reason to think there is a real connection, I only would say they have the same utopia in mind. Where the
intellectual elite (aka those who agree with them) would lead everyone else would follow their leadership without question, and dissenters would be
Weishaupt was educated and trained among the Jesuits, nothing like the Jesuits of today.......some say he simply went to a Jesuit school, others have
stated he was in fact being trained to be a Jesuit...in that time they were basically like the black ops of the Catholic Church....very ruthless. The
waged diisinformation campaigns, political assasination, they even tried to blow up Parliment.... That he chose the model he did very much sounds like
a Jesuit ideal, or at least a Jesuit Ideal by a someone who has lost their faith and now blames the Church.....it's very contrary to Masonic thinking
though. Which supported freedom of religion, and reform of the church. Originally likely masons did seem to support the monarchy, provided it was a
monarch that supported the people, and was just. However over time this would change to a Democratic Republic as being it's model.
