[Note: Periodically it is good for the people to be reminded that the government purposefully misleads us. For example, the government reassures us that inflantion is about 2.5%, but in terms of what people commonly buy, prices rose over the last year far more than 2.5%. On average, wholesale prices of food basics (wheat, corn, oats, etc.) rose by 48%, energy costs (heating oil, gasoline, etc.) by 23%, meat products (beef, pork, etc.) by 39%, and coffee (with sugar) by 36%. Health insurance premiums are projected to rise this year, and family incomes are down. So when the government announces everything is all right because inflation is only 2.5%, remember the figures above and tell them your money isn’t going as far as it used to despite their cheerfulness and reassurances.]
At the end of Part 5, I referred to Illuminist Johann Pestalozzi’s educational influence in America and to Robert Owen’s use of Pestalozzianism in Britain and America. In Illuminati founder Adam Weishaupt’s instructions to those of the degree of Epopts, he says the illuminizing Legislator states: “You will incessantly form new plans, and try every means… to seize upon the public education, the ecclesiastical government, the chairs of literature, and the pulpit.” Specifically concerning public education, in the “Instructions on the Government of the Illuminees—Laws for the Local Superiors,” one finds the following: “Our strength chiefly consists in numbers; but much will also depend on the means employed to form the pupil—Young people are pliant and easily take the impression.—The Prefect will therefore spare no pains to gain possession of the Schools which lie within his district, and also of their teachers. He will find need of placing them under the tuition of members of our Order; for this is the true method of infusing our principles and of training our young men: it is thus that the most ingenious men are prepared to labor for us and are brought into discipline; and thus that the affection conceived by our young pupils for the Order will gain as deep root as to all other early impressions.”
Establishing the first commune in the U.S. in 1825 at New Harmony, Indiana, Robert Owen in his opening address claimed: “I am come to this country to introduce an entire new order of society; to change it from an ignorant selfish system, to an enlightened social system, which shall gradually unite all interests into one and remove all cause for contest between individuals.”
Joining Owen at New Harmony in 1828 was Frances Wright (formerly Madame Francoise d’ Arusmot, brought to the U.S. by the Marquis de Lafayette) who, with Owen’s son Robert Dale Owen and Orestes Brownson, formed The Working-Men’s Party in New York. After Brownson converted to Christianity, he later revealed in The Works of Orestes Brownson that their plan in establishing their political party was as follows: “The great object was to get rid of Christianity, and to convert our churches into halls of science. The plan was not to make open attacks on religion, although we might belabor the clergy and bring them into contempt where we could; but to establish a system of state—we said national—schools from which all religion was to be excluded, in which nothing was to be taught but such knowledge as is verifiable by the senses, and to which all parents were to be compelled by law to send their children. Our complete plan was to take the children from their parents at the age of 12 or 18 months, and to have them nursed, fed, clothed, and trained in these schools at the public expense; but at any rate, we were to have godless schools for all the children of the country…. The plan has been successfully pursued… and the whole action of the country on the subject has taken the direction we sought to give it…. One of the principal movers of the scheme had no mean share in organizing the Smithsonian Institute.” This fit well within Weishaupt’s educational plan.
Relevant to “schools from which all religion was to be excluded,” in the early 1960s Bible reading and school prayer was banned by the U.S. Supreme Court. Relevant to only “knowledge as is verifiable by the senses” being taught, this was promoted by teaching exclusively Darwinian evolution. Relevant to children “at the age of 12 or 18 months” being “nursed, fed, clothed and trained” in public schools, Lamar Alexander (who would become U.S. Secretary of Education) on November 1, 1989 referred to “schools [that] will serve children from age 3 month” to age 18. And relevant to “godless schools for all the children of the country,” William Z. Foster (head of the American Communist Party) in Toward Soviet America (1932) referred to “studies being cleansed of religious features” and said “God will be banished… from the schools.”
Another area in which one can see the lineage of Weishaupt’s “Due what thou wilt” philosophy can be seen in abortion. In Part 1 of this series, I mentioned Weishaupt and his sister-in-law “tried every method in our power to destroy the child” in her womb. Weishaupt believed that his Illuminati elite should rule over the people. The Order influenced the French Revolution, and one of the revolution’s elite “philosopher kings” was the Marquis de Sade (from whom the word “sadist” comes). In de Sade’s Philosophie dans le Boudoir (1795), he said it was necessary to utilize induced abortion for social reasons to control the population. This elitist view can be seen in the 20th Century in Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s view that abortion could be used to lessen the number of “dysgenic stock,” whom she believed included “Jews, Catholics, Negroes and Gypsies” among others.

More recently, the eugenic or population control aspect of abortion can be seen in a letter by James B. Hunt, Jr. when he was governor of North Carolina. He was asked why he supported tax funding of abortions, and he replied that it was because “we must concentrate on raising new generations of children who aren’t stunted or handicapped in some way.” Remember, he was not talking about contraception, but rather about paying women for their abortions (killings) after their children have been conceived.
