Get it straight from the horses....um, anatomy. Every quote here is a word for word copy, scanned from the writings of 33d degree Freemasons. Edited
to reduce polysyllabic pettifoggery, random ruminations, and mellifluos verbiage. You would swear these bonzos get paid by the word.
Point: Illuminati control Freemasonry:
J. D. Buck; The Genius of Freemasonry; Page 36:
If the sincere and thoughtful Mason would "take notice" of the symbolism and the use made everywhere in the Lodge of the word "Light", and
remember that the real Initiates are called also "the Illuminati", (Sons of Light), those who are illumined, and who in turn illuminate, ...
Manly P. Hall; Lectures On Ancient Philosophy; Page 409: Illuminati
...its purpose is to impress upon the reader's mind the philosophical and political situation in Europe at the time of the inception of the Masonic
order. A philosophic clan, as it were, which had moved across the face of Europe under such names as the "Illuminati" and the "Rosicrucians," had
undermined in a subtle manner the entire structure of regal and sacerdotal supremacy.
Foster Bailey; The Spirit of Masonry; Pages 20-21: Plan, Illuminati, Not all get it
Little as it may be realised by the unthinking Mason who is interested only in the outer aspects of the Craft work, the whole fabric of Masonry may
be regarded as an externalisation of that inner spiritual group whose members, down the ages, have been the Custodians of the Plan, and as Those to
Whom has been committed the working out of the will of God for the race of men. They can be known ... as the Masters of the Wisdom for They are
skilled in the divine ways and have mastered the arts and sciences which Their fellowmen have yet to master. They are the Dispensers of Light and to
Them has been given, by virtue of Their achievement, the privilege and the authority to pronounce the great Masonic formula: 'Let there be light'
and to evoke the response: 'And there was LIGHT'.
They are therefore sometimes known as the Illuminati and can direct the searchlight of truth wherever its beams are needed to guide the pilgrim on
Point: The Plan
Manly P. Hall; The Secret Destiny Of America; Pages 23-24:
Order of the Quest; Enlightened Humans
Years of research among the records of olden peoples available in libraries, museums, and shrines of ancient cultures, has convinced me that there
exists in the world today, and has existed for thousands of years, a body of enlightened humans united in what might be termed, an Order of the Quest.
It is composed of those whose intellectual and spiritual perceptions have revealed to them that civilization has a Secret Destiny-secret, I say,
because this high purpose is not realized by the many; the great masses of peoples still live along without any knowledge whatsoever that they are
part of a Universal Motion in time and space.
Manly P. Hall; Americas Assignment With Destiny; Page 112: Great Plan
Those sensitive to subtle values will find positive indications of fortuitous intervention if they care to seek for them. The landmarks are not
obvious to the profane, but years of familiarity with the proportions of the project enable the thoughtful to recognize the systematic unfoldment of
the Great Plan. The truth is more obvious among those peoples whose religions acknowledge the existence of an invisible government. This has always
been concealed in the descent of the Western Mystery religion.
Manly P. Hall; The Lost Keys of Freemasonry; Page 66: The Plan
The true Master Mason enters his lodge with one thought uppermost in his mind: "How can I, as an individual, be of greater use in the Universal
Manly P. Hall; The Lost Keys of Freemasonry; Page 67: Plan, Bounds Of Time & Space
The true brother of the Craft ... has a duty and that duty is to fit into the plans of another. He must be ready at any hour of the day or night to
drop his own ideals at the call of the Builder. The work must be done and he has dedicated his life to the service of those who know the bonds of
neither time nor space.
C.W. Leadbeater; Freemasonry: Its Ancient and Mystic Rites; Page 13: The Plan
The powers that stand behind Freemasonry are great and holy, and it is but right that they should be conferred in their fullness only upon those who
are likely to use them as they should be used and to treat them with the reverence they deserve. There is a great and glorious reality in the
background all the time, ever pressing towards realization, and employing whatever channels are available for its manifestation.
Foster Bailey; The Spirit of Masonry; Page 140:
Masonry is of divine origin, God's Plan for man
Masonry is of divine origin and was created for the purpose of training a group of members of the human family who would be capable of hastening the
triumph of "God's Plan for man". ....
Point: The plan is one world government
Manly P. Hall; The Secret Destiny Of America; Page 73:
Plan has been carried on for many hundreds of years by secret societies.
Todays thinking toward a democratic world state is neither a new trend nor an accidental circumstance; the work of setting up the background of
knowledge necessary to the establishing of enlightened democracy among all nations has been carried on for many hundreds of years by secret
Foster Bailey; Running Gods Plan; Pages 14-15: European Economic Community
Another approved hierarchical project is the uniting of the nations of Europe in one cooperating peaceful community. The plan is not for a new
all-Europe government nor for a common language, but for right national relations dedicated to the welfare of the people living in those countries
undistorted by national pride, ambitions and prejudices and not under the heel of leaders who crave power nor cursed by the folly of attempted safety
by means of military might.
Foster Bailey; Running Gods Plan; Page 15: Hitler, united Europe
This project ... was initiated some years ago and got under way as "Pan Europa"... Here we are dealing with a most intelligent people, highly
organised, well-educated, alert to world affairs, but proud of their differences and convinced of their rightness about all things. This was therefore
a much tougher problem but dear to the heart of the "European Master".
One attempt was to begin by uniting the peoples living in the Rhine river valley using that river as a binding factor. It was an attempt by a
disciple but did not work.
Now another attempt is in full swing, namely the six nation European Common Market. This is focused in trade and thus far has been successful.
Foster Bailey; Things To Come; Pages 18-19:
World unity a definite project of the spiritual Hierarchy
Just as the people of a small village have to cooperate for the good of the village or it explodes into fragments, so nations will, in the long
last, give up some of their sovereignty for world welfare for all mankind. .... World unity is a possibility and is a definite project of the
spiritual Hierarchy of the planet today.
Foster Bailey; Things To Come; Page 84: new world order
Intelligent men and women everywhere are sensing the urgency of a new world order based on the recognition that the unity of humanity is a fact.
Foster Bailey; Things To Come; Page 85: World unity, Nazis, world government
World unity is now a major objective in human evolution. The Nazi attempt to control the whole human family was an attempt at world unity without
spiritual vision, wrongly motivated, controlled by cruel force used for utterly wrong purposes.... Therefore, the spiritual Hierarchy took sides and
worked for the triumph of the forces of light, which was achieved.
Just as the thirteen original colonies of the United States, when they had won freedom, gave up some of their sovereignty for national good, so a
world government can emerge. If nations remain as now, controlled by wrong competing life values, we shall have to suffer through another abortive
attempt not much better than the first League of Nations. The United Nations is a second attempt to achieve world unity by national cooperation. It
involves much more than escaping world war.
Foster Bailey; Things To Come; Page 86: Law of the Sea Treaty
If the people of the world demand that the ocean beds be treated as the property of all humanity, it can be done. This can be by national treaties
setting up an organisation to control it by a formal world government. In either case there must be a strong public will with a vision of world unity
or it will be subverted and controlled by graft and corruption
Foster Bailey; Running Gods Plan; Page 141: World Government, Gods Plan
Of recent years the idea that we must ultimately have some sort of world government has been more and more expressed. The basic idea is pioneering
and sound but the means to that end may be arguable. An outer codified world charter should precipitate around an enlightened world opinion.....
action leading to world government has the attention and support of the Hierarchy. It is part of God's Plan.
Foster Bailey; Running Gods Plan; Page144: a new world government
The thirteen original colonies gave some of their hard won sovereignty for their common good and thus the United States of America was born. In like
manner and for the same reason the nations of the world will in time give up some of their sovereignties to a new world government which they will
Manly P. Hall; Lectures On Ancient Philosophy; Page 424: Rule by the wise
The time has not yet arrived when the average man is strong enough or wise enough to rule himself. Even when unfolding destiny greatly magnifies the
accomplishments of the many, there will not come a day when the wisdom of the mass will be equal to the wisdom of its wisest few. .... Never will
peace reign upon the earth until we are ruled by the fit, until he who possesses vision is permitted to see for him who is blind, until he who senses
greatness is permitted to interpret its issues for him who is unresponsive to magnitudes. Men are only truly free when, governed by the wise, they are
inclined gently towards the perfection of their own natures. Men are only truly great when, admitting the supremacy of the wise, they offer both life
and chattel to the service of integrity.
Manly P. Hall; Lectures On Ancient Philosophy; Page 430:
Rule by the wise, One government
Only when the world is ruled by its best balanced intellects can we expect it to be well ruled. Nor have we ever a sufficient number of illumined
men to permit several score of smaller nations to have proper and adequate forms of government. Only by combining into a single people, and choosing
the wisest of ... can we approach that philosophic empire which Bacon...advanced as the true solution of empire. When inferior intellects are chosen
to administer governmental destinies, dissension is inevitable in the state. The true philosopher is the born ruler of men.
