4: The New World Order

"After all, it was you and me."

--The Rolling Stones, "Sympathy for the Devil"

Soon after the American Revolution, John Robinson, a professor of natural philosophy at Edinburgh University in Scotland and member of a Freemason lodge, said that he was asked to join the Illuminati. After studying the group, he concluded that the purposes of the Illuminati were not compatible with his beliefs.

In 1798, he published a book called "Proofs Of A Conspiracy," which states:

"An association has been formed for the express purpose of rooting out all the religious establishments and overturning all the existing governments.... The leaders would rule the World with uncontrollable power, while all the rest would be employed as tools of the ambition of their unknown superiors."

"Proofs of A Conspiracy" was sent to George Washington. Responding to the sender of the book with a letter, President Washington said he was well aware of the Illuminati presence in America. He wrote that the Illuminati had "diabolical tenets" and that their object was "a separation of the People from their government."

The decades following the JFK assassination have been marked by increasing cynicism and disillusionment among the American people towards a government which acts as an elite, aloof institution at the disposal of powerful forces both seen and unseen. Washington's prophecy of "a separation of the People from their government" has come to fulfillment. As the glaciers of a contrived Cold War melt down, our "government" is steadily militarizing and expanding its police powers, turning away from foreign targets of aggression to focus on domestic "insurrection." Although the foundation of this conspiracy has been under construction for centuries, the poisoned fruits of these labors burst into bloom on that dark day in Dealey Plaza 33 years ago.

So did Oz-wald do it all by himself? Or are we all patsies on the bloody path to the New World Order?
