When it comes to the world of conspiracy theories, this is the sort of tale which has everything.  Freemasons, tick.  Illuminati, tick.  Dark Satanic forces behind the scenes, tick.  Engineered perpetual war and false flag events, tick. Predictions of the end times, tick.

Born in 1819, Albert Pike was a Freemason, and during the American Civil War he had been a Brigadier General.  On 15 August 1871 he allegedly wrote a letter to an Italian revolutionary, Guiseppe Mazzini.  In it Pike laid out a series of uncanny predictions.

He begins by writing:   The First World War must be brought about to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and to make that country a fortress of atheistic Communism.  The divergences caused by the agentur [agents] of the Illuminati between the British and the Germanic empires will be used to foment this war.  At the end of this war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions. 

The disasters of World War 1 did indeed propel Russia towards a revolution, overthrowing and destroying the Czar and his family, and bringing on decades of Communist rule.  After the horrors of the war, religion did suffer a reversal of fortune (certainly here in Britain), as people became more disillusioned and questioning.

Pike then moves on to World War 2:  The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantages of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists.  This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to constitute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine.   During the Second World War, international communism become strong enough to balance Christendom, which would then be restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm. 

Well of course the Nazi’s were destroyed, and the state of Israel was created in 1948.

Understandably, skeptics have been quick to point out that the terminology and ideas Pike uses in his letter wasn’t around during his lifetime.  Pike died on 2 April 1890.  He may well have been familiar with the works of Karl Marx, but could he have predicted the Russian Revolution?  The jury seems to be out on that one.  Dostoyevsky’s novel Devils, about Russian revolutionaries, was published in 1869, and certainly such feelings were bubbling under the surface in Russia for many years before they finally exploded onto the surface at the beginning of the 20th century.

Nazism as a word certainly didn’t surface until many years after Pike’s death.  And, according to Wikipedia, Zionism didn’t emerge as a political movement until 1897 … seven years after Pike died.  I’d also like to add that, as Pike says, World War 2 was brought about to destroy Nazism … and yet one can argue that you wouldn’t have had the rise of Nazism without World War One!

Many argue – quite legitimately – that the letter is an outright hoax, and that it was invented in 1894 by a Leo Taxil, who wrote a controversial book called The Devil In The Nineteenth Century, which was an attack on Freemasonry, and it’s alleged links to world revolutions.   The book was so sensationalist that it fell into disrepute, and has largely been forgotten since.  The author claimed that Freemason Pike had his visions of the future after a demonic hallucination.

Others have pointed out that Pike’s blueprint for world chaos comes from a book by William Guy Carr called Pawns In The Game, which was published in the mid-1950s.  In 1959 Carr claimed that Pike’s letter had been catalogued by the Library of the British Museum, London … who have since denied all knowledge of it.

But what about the World War 3 part, you may well ask?   Well here it is: The Third World must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the agenturs [agents] of the Illuminati between the political Zionists and the leaders of the Islamic World.  The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and Zionism (the state of Israel) mutually destroy each other.  Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economic exhaustion …. He then goes on to talk about the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.

All this can sound very David Icke-ish, but the bit about “complete physical, moral, spiritual and economic exhaustion” struck a disturbing chord with me, as it feels all too familiar with what’s going on all around us now.   I’m not saying I believe the letter is genuine (I have no idea), just that it’s having enough of an impact with readers to still cause the level of argument I’ve seen Online about it.
