2 – The spread of subversive ideas
It is primarily in the field of the perversion of theintellect and morals that the influence of theMasonic mother house has been felt and, by way of France, has radiated all over Europe. France playedan important part in the dissemination of the ideasfirst born in England. In its wake, during the 18
century, foreigners assembled in Paris, attendingtheir beloved ‘salons’ where they went to absorbFrench literature and the Arts. French-style palacesmultiplied in Germany and Russia and the Rococostyle reigned from Berlin to Rome. In the end, all those disastrous philosophical ideasinfiltrated everywhere. To give just a single example: the political and social theories of thedevoted Freemasons Montesquieu (1689-1755) and Voltaire (1694-1778) were stronglyinfluenced by their stay in England, and their theories greatly affected the later developmentsin the democratic world. We find the result of Montesquieu’s effort, first of all, in “The Spiritof Laws”, an extensive work of thirty-one chapters first published in 1748, which can be re-garded as an elaboration of the ideas of Locke.
3 – The ideal: the march towards a unified humanity
The cosmopolitan and Masonic idea can be summarised as follows: “The ideal of all the phi-losophers is no more the perfection of the inner man, but is the march towards a unified hu-manity: the golden age that the ancients have placed so far behind, is here in front of us.”Progress is accomplished by means of science, and in particular by the application of science.This explains why in the 18
century each philosopher is seconded by a scientist. What aboutthe Catholic religion in the midst of this positivist philosophical climate? The philosophers of the 18
century see in that faith only the expression of fanaticism. This faith is no longer re-garded as belonging to a State Institution to which it would be appropriate to submit oneself.The Masonic philosophy appears more reasonable - at any rate more agreeable to the spirit of this world. Yet, we have to admit that this philosophy is basically a faith, indeed of an anti-Christian nature, a faith in a World Government. In the final resort it is the aspiration for thekingdom of Lucifer on earth that is hidden behind the façade of the ideal of a New World Or-der (Novus Ordo Seclorum).
4 – To bring conformity out of conflict, alias the reign of Lucifer on earth
The Masonic order fashions synthetic truth and proceeds to pursue it in order to make itflourish. This is the way they attempt to make progress towards the attainment of the goldenage. This creational process of struggling myths and counter-myths has brought about a plan-ned state of confusion that has concealed the real issues. In the end, these artificial struggleswill amalgamate to form a synthesis, falsely called peace: so it will happen with the struggleof liberalism against socialism (or communism), workers’ parties against the representatives of capitalism, atheism against confessionalism, esoterism or New Age against materialism, managainst woman, parents against children. Since the 1990
we have also witnessed the violentclash between the radical Islamic movement and the Western way of life. There is nothingartificial about this struggle. It is the continuation of a secular and unrelenting conflict which,this time, was kindled by the unrestrained immigration into Europe of foreign workers whowere cultural strangers to the Judeo-Christian roots of Europe and have remained so ever
