The Nazis were the first radical environmentalists who, with a bit of help from Wall Street, happened to land themselves control of the State. The British monarchy and its aristocratic web of relations has continued a distinctly feudalistic version of nature conservation, hunting and ecology which has continued to the present day. It is common knowledge that a Germanic background has laid at the foundation of English royalty which has had a peculiar link to the development of ecological consciousness and its present inversion.

Jonathon Petropoulos’ Royals and the Reich shows exactly why German aristocrats were the most fascistic of the time:

270 German princes and princesses were Nazi Party members. A sampling of 312 “old aristocratic” families found 3,592 Party members. Every noble family east of the Elbe River had at least one member in the Party. A third of Nazi-aristocrats joined the Party before Hitler became Chancellor; a majority supported the Nazis, or like groups, before this date …. Royal Hohenzollern princes were high-profile Nazi campaigners during the Nazis’ struggle for power. Aristocrats occupied thousands of top government posts during the Third Reich.

King Edward VIII was a Nazi. He was definitely guilty of treason and possibly guilty of attempted regicide. Edward did not abdicate in order to marry Wallis Simpson. He was forced from the throne by PM Baldwin because Edward was heading up a Nazi fifth column in the UK.

George V, George VI, the Duke of Kent and scores of British aristocrats promoted “appeasement.” This “peace movement” was an effort to steer Britain into the Axis.

Western Europe’s aristocracy, including most German princes, survived World War II. They retained, even supplemented, their land holdings. Over the past few decades they have engineered a remarkable renaissance. [1]

And that renaissance involved inherited land rights which underpinned the maintenance of an authoritarian class system, fed by a fear of civil unrest and anti-Bolshevism. The aristocracy wanted to play a part in leading the masses out of an old world in decline, a New Order that would be fiercely protected and re-packaged under National Socialism.  Futurism, synarchy and the eco-fascism that went with it, was dear to the hearts of much of the aristocracy and Establishment classes in the 1920s. By 1917, the aristocratic families of the Windsors, Romanovs, Habsburgs, Savoys and Hohenzollerns were “the original European Union,” all of whom: “… practised endogamy [marrying within one’s own social, ethic group] to such an extent that the entire Protestant caste could name Queen Victoria and/or Denmark’s Christian IX as an ancestor.” [2]

After the tyrannical Emperor Wilhelm was removed from power in 1918, the rural life continued to be worshipped by the Aristo-Elite in the Weimar Republic harking back to the good ole’ days which led to young aristocrats shunning the Republic and turning their attention to Nazi ideology and the rise of right-wing paramilitary groups. Despite considerable changes over the years the aristocracy and upper classes held onto their wealth and power. The revolution in the Weimar Republic was a political one and did nothing to change the Elite who were entrenched in the old economic order which obviously benefited their financial status and traditions. The aristocracy and the Nazis came to rely on each other as National Socialism gained support. Throughout the 1920s and 30s: a Nazi high society mingled with: “… Aristocrats, industrialists and movie stars [who] lounged in Goring’s and Goebbels’s parlours. Few from this scene bothered to read abstruse ideological screeds like Mein Kampf.” [3]

Though the party sold itself on grassroots support from the peasantry and a party for the workers and the disenfranchised in society, in reality they used the wealth of the German nobility and mixed freely with higher classes. Even though there was Brownshirt rhetoric against nobility and much distrust, this only boiled over when Hitler’s paranoia reached epic proportions and he began a rejection and imprisonment of many German princes in the latter years of the Second World War. Meantime, monarchists were courted and entertained. In return, Hitler made promises to restore monarchist families. [4] Even when there was resistance to Nazis and their pan-Germanism from families such as the Wittelsbachs and the Habsburgs, their fascism remained rock-solid.

The association of Nazism with nobility would only feed into the mythology of a New World Germanic Order that was somehow blessed by Royal Seal and noble blood, fitting for a Divinely ordained destiny. From this financial security the Nazis promised protection thus increasing the slow gravitation by the aristocracy toward Nazism.

Author William Walter Kay provides some interesting figures:

At least 270 members of princely families joined the Nazi Party. 50 percent of princes and princesses eligible to join the Party did so. Of the 270 card-carrying Nazi princes and princesses, 80 joined before January 30, 1933. One survey of 312 “old aristocratic” families found 3,592 Nazi Party members; 962 of whom joined the Party before 1933. This is hardly an exhaustive list of aristocratic Nazis.

No one has ventured a guess as to what percentage of Germany’s 70,000 nobles were Nazi Party members; but this percentage was far higher than that for the general public. The nobility were probably the most Nazi-friendly demographically identifiable cohort. Every noble family east of the Elbe River had at least one member in the Party. [5]

The family of Hessens or the House of Hesse had been an enthusiastic supporter of the Third Reich boasting 14 party members in its three family branches. Involved in selling mercenaries and land confiscation, owning shares in the notorious I.G. Farben and pursing investments in art, jewellery, furniture, porcelain and other durables, their influence was substantial. *

Princess Margaret’s mother was the eldest daughter of Queen Victoria and her father was Kaiser Friedrich III. She married Landgrave Friedrich Karl of the Hesse-Kassel branch where she had six sons. The surviving children Prince Christoph von Hessen and Prince Philipp von Hessen are of particular note in that they embraced and perpetuated Nazism though their actions and subsequent families. When Prince Christoph married Princess Sophia of Greece and Denmark in 1930, the ring bearer at the wedding was Sophia’s nine year old brother Philip – the future Duke of Edinburgh and according to Petropoulos: “Sophia’s mother was a Battenberg, a morganatic branch of the Hesse-Darmstadts. Sophia’s three sisters, Margarita, Theodora and Cecile, each married Nazi-aristocrats. Margarita married Prince Gottfried zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg – a great-grandson of Queen Victoria. He was a Nazi Party member in contact with Nazi leaders, and an Army commander during the 1938 occupation of Austria. Nazi Party Foreign Policy Office head, Alfred Rosenberg, turned to Gottfried to solicit British royals.” [6]

Prince Christoph began working for Herman Göering’s intelligence agency in 1933, the Reich Air Ministry Research Office (Forschungamt or “FA”) which was an extremely powerful Third Reich agency. He rose up the ranks of the SS to be inducted into Himmler’s personal staff in 1934 and by 1939 he had become an SS Oberfuhrer. Having joined the Luftwaffe in the same year: “The Luftwaffe awarded Christoph an Iron Cross for his assistance in planning the gratuitous bombing of Rotterdam in May 1940. 1,000 civilians were killed with 78,000 left homeless.” [7] Petropoulos’ evidence also points to Christoph’s involvement in planning attacks on Buckingham Palace. He died in a plane crash in 1943 flying from Rome to Germany.

His brother Prince Philipp von Hessen was quite a different character, being more of an arts-driven socialite. He joined the Hessian Dragoons just prior to World War I but never saw combat; studied art and architecture at Darmstadt University and became an interior designer in Rome, his family funding a flamboyant lifestyle. While there, he became attached to both Count Albrecht von Bismarck and his social circle which were part of the European intelligentsia. British writer Siegfried Sassoon was one of the lengthier homosexual relationships in Philipp’s life. [8]  However, true to tradition in September 1925, he married Princess Mafalda – daughter of Italian King Vittorio III. The marriage was well attended by Royalty and the Euro-Establishment. Living in Italy they were part of the fascist Italian royal inner circle and Phillip’s position allowed him to act as conduit for relations between Italian-German aristocrats. This is explains why Mussolini – a highly popular figure at the time – was seen posing in photos of the happy couple on their wedding day. It wasn’t long before they had four children with the youngest named “Adolph” as homage to his Godfather.

Philipp’s cousin Prince August Wilhelm, was the person who officially recruited him into the Nazis. He joined the Nazi Party in 1930, while Mafalda opted for the Nazi women’s auxiliary with their two eldest already in the Hitler Youth. After having joined the SA in 1931 Hitler personally promoted Philipp to General of the SA five years later with a seat at the Prussian Staatsrat and the Reichstag. As we know, the SA was a hot-bed of homosexual favouritism so it probably greased the wheels of the Prince’s success, eventually becoming one of Hitler’s closest confidents. Philipp himself is quoted as saying: “I always had access to Hitler if I wanted it.” [9]

To understand how this aristo-fascism manifested on the ground, the following passage illustrates the deep-rooted nature of Philipp’s Nazi beliefs which was no different at all to ordinary card-carrying Nazis:

Philipp supported the Third Reich’s forced sterilization of 300,000 people. In 1935 he ordered a stifling of local clerical criticism of this program. Hadamar was the site of numerous sterilizations including one of an epileptic member of Hesse family who died after the operation.

Hadamar was one of six killing centres in the T-4 program to exterminate disabled persons. This program, launched in 1939, was co-managed by the Interior Ministry and the Chancellery (located at Tiergartenstrasse 4 in Berlin, hence “T-4”). 70,000 people were killed. T-4 executioners later figured prominently in the Holocaust. T-4 was officially halted in 1941 in response to clerical denunciation, but the killing continued. 5,000 were killed at Hadamar after T-4 program officially ended. In total 10,000 were killed at Hadamar. Philipp ignored letters from distraught citizens with relatives caught up in T-4; including a letter from one of his civil servants whose son perished at Hadamar.[10]

From 1934-1939 the prince accompanied Hitler on various travels including the 1938 appeasement deal by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. He spent much of his time acting as liaison between Germany and Italy, procuring valuable pieces of looted art from wealthy citizens and Jews in Italy, Poland, Holland and France, a familiar practice among the aristocrats. By September 1943, Italy had fallen to the Allies and things were turning sour, which meant Philipp had to decide how he was going to save his skin. In order to make his options easier Hitler had him shipped off to Dachau concentration camp while his wife Mafalda was sent to Buchenwald camp where she eventually died. The Prince found himself in the Allies hands when camps were liberated by the US military.

Despite being the 53rd most wanted Nazi, Philipp was to survive and prosper as did so many other German royals who left their Nazi associations and crimes without even a prison sentence. [11]

At the Hadamar trial while Philip was declared to have “retained ultimate responsibility” for the sanatorium, and to have “played a decisive role in the killing,” he went unpunished. Three of his Hadamar co-defendants were sentenced to death.

For an attorney at his denazification trial Philipp hired Fabian von Schlabrendorff, a man with a sterling reputation as a member of the resistance who later assisted the prosecution at the Nuremberg trials.

Schlabrendorff recast Philipp as a victimized member of the resistance. Most of the 17 witnesses called were sympathetic to Philipp. The verdict, rendered December 1947, declared Philipp a Category II offender and sentenced him to two years forced labour and a 30 percent property forfeiture. As he had been incarcerated since 1945, he was released. [12] [Emphasis mine]

In 1968, Philipp succeeded as head of the entire House of Hesse, including grand ducal Hesse (Hesse and by Rhine/Hesse-Darmstadt) on account of the death of his relative Prince Louis of Hesse and by Rhine. He died in 1980 and remained friends with many fascists – including the Duke of Windsor.

While the House of Hessen was perhaps the most high profile aristo-fascists Walter William Kay highlights Jonathan Petropoulos’ research into the prevalence of other aristocrats involved with Nazism. It only represents a partial overview of members and their actions during the war, the whole picture of which may never be known.

He states:

The Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha family had 9 members in the Nazi Party; the Schaumburg-Lippes had 10; the Lippes had 18; and the Hohenlohes had 20.

The royal Hohenzollerns maintained good relations with the Nazi elite from 1929 to 1943. Their support was highly visible. In the early 1930s, as the Nazis struggled, Hohenzollerns appeared in Nazi advertisements and were seated at Nazi rallies where they could be seen by all.

Prince Auwi, the Kaiser’s fourth son, joined the Party on 1 April 1930 but his involvement clearly pre-dates that. He held Nazi membership card number 24. […]

Crown Prince Wilhelm (“Wilhelm”), long an admirer of Italian Fascism, enjoyed a successful meeting with Mussolini in 1928.

Wilhelm campaigned for the Nazis, in SA uniform, in the watershed 1932 Hitler-versus-Hindenburg election. He used his influence in 1932 to help rescind the government ban on the SA and SS. […]

Kaiser Wilhelm regularly contacted Hitler and penned letters praising him. He shared Hitler’s vision of a remilitarized Germany and he espoused anti-Semitic views. […]

Prince Friedrich Christian zu Schaumburg-Lippe worked for the Nazis for a year before joining the Party and becoming a “national speaker” in 1929. […]

[Josias, Hereditary Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont] joined the Nazi Party in 1929 and the SS in early 1930. He was close to Himmler who appointed him SS Chief of Staff and chief aide to the head of Hitler’s personal security team. Waldeck ran the SS equestrian club. He was an SS-General and a Foreign Office Councillor. He held a Reichstag seat from 1933 to 1945. To promote SS settlements in Eastern Europe Waldeck created the Bureau for Germanification of Eastern Peoples. [13]

And of course, we remember Prince Bernhard zur Lippe-Biesterfeld who was a member of the SA, SS and Nazi League of Air Sports and went on to found the Bilderberg group in the 1950s. Fascist tendencies seldom disappear but incubate in the aftermath of the chaos they create, waiting for the next batch of authoritarian and social dominators to gain ascendance. Monarchies, like their freemasonic counterparts, provide yet another hierarchical breeding ground for their manifestation.

That is not to say that this brand of ponerogenic-fascism was exclusively sourced from Germany. The British Royal family have a genetic bloodline and beliefs which were decidedly Germanic. The long history of Royalty and the Establishment and its love-affair with all things Synarchist extended beyond national boundaries. If anything, German Romanticism and National Socialism only mimicked what was already taking place in both Britain and later America, quickening the pace of ponerogenesis.

Queen_Victoria_1887

Queen Victoria,1887

When Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840 it was the beginning of the House of Windsor. Albert was the son of Germany’s Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha though his real surname, Wettin had its roots in another one of the numerous dynastic German families which proliferated in the last few hundred years. By 1917, George the V had dumped Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Wettin for the thoroughly English-sounding “Windsor” so that their Royal German heritage wouldn’t get in the way of First World War propaganda. That was one irony which might just have caused problems for the perception managers of of the day, enough to threaten the needed fodder of the British Tommy whose death toll reached over 2 million and from which weapons manufacturers and international bankers divided the spoils. [14]

On the other side of the Royal coin the surname of the Queen and Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh is Mountbatten-Windsor the origins of which are drawn from the long-winded Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg. (Which leaves you appreciating the English simplicity of “smith” or “Brown”). The young Philip was schooled at Schloss Salem, run by German-Jewish educator and philosopher Kurt Hahn. Though Hahn did his best to resist the development of Hitler youth within the school, it nevertheless became a bastion of Nazi teaching with race science becoming part of the school’s curricula. [15] Hahn went on to found Gordonstoun School in Scotland which has played a major role in rearing all the male children of Queen Elizabeth II and Philip.

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh had four sisters all of whom were in Nazi Germany during WWII and were married either to SS-Obergruppenführers or Nazi Gauleiters. Margarita was married to the Czech-Austrian prince Gottfried von Hohenlohe-Langenburg whom we met previously, a great-grandson of England’s Queen Victoria; Theodora to Berthold, the margrave of Baden; Cecilia to Georg Donatus, grand duke of Hesse-by-Rhine, also a great-grandson of Queen Victoria; and, Sophie to Prince Christoph of Hesse. Prince Christoph, Hermann Göering’s Chief of Intelligence whom we looked at briefly, was his brother-in-law and just one of numerous relatives who fell over themselves to snatch a piece of the Nazi pie. So many in fact that Philip’s invitation list was paired down to a handful on account of the surfeit of Nazis that made up his best pals. [16] Prince Henry Duke of Brunswick, real name: Heinrich von Braunschweig for example, or the father of Princess Michael of Kent: Baron Gunther von Reibnitz, an Austrian SS Obergruppenführer. And the brother of Princess Alice, a great-aunt to the Queen, was a forthright Nazi who said that Hitler had done a “wonderful job.” [17]

In response to Jonathan Petropoulos’ The Royals and the Reich (2004) Philip had to indulge in some uncomfortable damage limitation by a televised airing of a much sanitized version of the Royals’ anti-Semitic views. He described the House of Windsor as having ‘inhibitions about the Jews’ and remarked on how there was ‘jealousy of their success.’ [18] Never before seen photographs from the book featured: “… Philip aged 16 at the 1937 funeral of his elder sister Cecile, flanked by relatives in SS and Brownshirt uniforms. One row back in the cortege in Darmstadt, Western Germany, was his uncle, Lord Mountbatten, wearing a Royal Navy Bicorn hat. Another picture shows his youngest sister, Sophia, sitting opposite Hitler at the wedding of Hermann and Emmy Göering.” In the interview, he said that the attraction of the Nazis was down to the “…great improvement in things like trains running on time and building. There was a sense of hope after the depressing chaos of the Weimar Republic.” [19]

Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh at the funeral of his elder sister Cecile in 1937. He is flanked by high ranking Nazis. The prince was a supporter of the new Nazi economics, but was his mind-set out of the same mold?

Prince Philip is representative of a belief that views humanity as a virus that must be wiped out in order that Nature can live in perfect equilibrium. Most of humanity that is, except the aristocracy and banking, corporate and occult Elite who consider themselves on level of racially and spiritual superiority far above ordinary folk. It seems that Prince Philip took his lead from Heinrich Himmler who described his victims in “language normally used for bacterial cultures. ” Nonetheless, Philip’s eco-fascist credentials were put to work for the World Wildlife Fund in 1961 holding hands with former Nazi SS Officer Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands.

In his 1986 book If I Were an Animal, Prince Philip wrote, “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.” Pruning back and uprooting the “weeds” in the population means that we are under heel of a group-mind that sees eugenics and animal husbandry of the Nazis as the best way to allow the spiritually ascended few to sit on the right hand of God. According to Philip while not claiming to have “… any special interest in natural history … as a boy I was made aware of the annual fluctuations in the number of game animals and the need to adjust the “cull” to the size of the surplus population.” [20]

We are in no doubt as to the imperative behind Philip’s final solution where he parrots the same script of the eugenicists explaining that the “conflict between instinct and reason has reached a critical stage in man’s affairs,” which the Duke believes is: “… largely because the explosion of facts has revealed the instincts for what they are and at the same time it has undermined traditional philosophies and ideologies. The explosion of facts has effectively altered mankind’s physical and intellectual environment and when any environment changes, the process of natural selection is brutal and merciless. ‘Adapt or die’ is as true today as it was in the beginning.” [21]
Now, consider whether the next passage From Prince Philip could have been written by Hitler, Himmler, or Darré:

What has been described as the “balance of nature” is simply nature’s system of self-limitation. Fertility and breeding success create the surpluses after allowing for the replacement of the losses. Predation, climatic variation, disease, starvation–and in the case of the inappropriately named Homo sapiens, wars and terrorism–are the principal means by which population numbers are kept under some sort of control.

Viewed dispassionately, it must be obvious that the world’s human population has grown to such a size that it is threatening its own habitat; and it has already succeeded in causing the extinction of large numbers of wild plant and animal species. Some have simply been killed off. Others have quietly disappeared, as their habitats have been taken over or disturbed by human activities. [22] [Emphasis mine]

Prince Philip cites: “wars and terrorism [as] the principal means by which population numbers are kept under some sort of control.” Now, given that we know that disease, general lack of public health, poverty and hunger cause the most deaths in the global population this is both factually wrong and oddly misleading. Why include terrorism as one of the principal means? Philip’s inference is that the culling of weaker and inferior element conforming to the natural homeostasis of Nature should be encouraged. False-flag terrorism and Kissinger’s Food as a Weapon comes back to haunt us in his words.

Consider too, the words of Hitler on the recognition that the “… Völkisch … separates mankind into races of superior and inferior quality” and in conforming to “… the eternal Will that dominates the universe … the victory of the better and stronger and the subordination of the inferior and weaker” is the inevitable outcome. And it is this “Will to Power” as drawn from the philosophy of Frederick Nietzsche and as a pillar of worship in Satanic lore that “…pays homage to the truth that the principle underlying all Nature’s operations is the aristocratic principle and it believes that this law holds good even down to the last individual organism.” [23]

Philip is not alone in his misanthropic sound-bites. The environmental movement is awash with the same anti-human sentiments drawn from a growing green fundamentalism. Journalist David M. Graber of the Los Angeles Times believes that: “We have become a plague upon [ourselves and upon] the Earth … Until such a time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.” [24]Or from academic Paul W. Taylor: “Given the total, absolute, and final disappearance of Homo sapiens, then, not only would the Earth’s Community of life continue to exist but in all probability its well-being would be enhanced. Our presence, in short, is not needed. And if we were to take the standpoint of that Life Community and give voice to its true interest, the ending of the human epoch on Earth would most likely be greeted with a hearty ‘Good riddance!’” [25]

King Edward VIII was touted as a hiccup in an otherwise flawless history of selfless Windsor rule. Contrary to popular belief, the Royal House of Windsor was fascist to the core, long before the Edward & Mrs Simpson pantomime. The Queen Mother and George VI’s birthday greetings to Hitler weeks before Germany invaded Poland was simply due to the uncomfortable fact for some in British intelligence that they were sympathisers to the Nazi cause and appeasement was a natural course.

Winston Churchill was the object of loathing for the Queen Mother which was why she was kept away from giving interviews due to her supremacist views. She was a PR nightmare, counter to the sweet little old granny image so (apparently) beloved of at least the older generations of the British public. [26] Britain’s “favourite granny” was actually described as extremely racist by former aides, an avid support of the South African Apartheid, anti-Semitic and opposed to all forms of immigration. In summary, as one British journalist and presenter of BBC’s Today programme once described her: “a ghastly old bigot”.

Rather than a personal aberration the Queen Mother’s attitudes and beliefs were a caricature of not only an obvious elitism – that is the nature of aristocracy after all – but a continuing brainwashing of an underlying fascist doctrine from which the younger members of the Royal family would no doubt recoil, despite the residual effects of its presence having inevitably become part of their worldview. Aristocracy, public school and British upper class system is replete with beliefs which blur the line between conservatism and fascism.

princeharry1The Duke of Edinburgh’s grandson, Prince Harry, provided a glimpse into Royal perceptions in a series of early gaffs which confirmed the results of brought up in an aristo-military milieu. In 2005, Prince Harry was forced to publicly apologise for his fancy dress attire which he donned for friend’s “colonial and native” party. His outfit comprised of full Nazi regalia including a badge of the German Wehrmacht and a swastika armband. A few years later he was forced to issue an apology for referring to an Asian army colleague as “our little Paki friend” and joking with another that he “looks like a rag-head”, an offensive term for an Arab. [27] These may appear to be trivial points, but they provide a mirror of the British class and public schooling system and the elitist beliefs and privileges which define their existence.

Further embarrassment for the royal family in July 2015, came from a hitherto unknown film possibly from the Queen’s own archive which surfaced in tabloid Newspaper The Sun and its own youtube channel. Shot by the Queen’s father, George VI on the grounds of Balmoral, most likely between 1933 and 1934, after Hitler’s rise to power in Germany, the film depicts a veritable swarm of Nazi salutes featuring the young Princess Elizabeth with her arm raised, her mother and the Queen’s uncle Edward VIII all giving sieg heils to their hearts content. (Although nothing very shocking to most who know the roots of Royal fascism, it did serve as a nice distraction from the British government’s covert and illegal bombing of Syria as part of US-NATO alliance to oust Assad).

Royal documents which had been held in vaults at Windsor Castle were released in 2003. In the documents were details concerning Edward VIII’s relations with Hitler and the Nazis. Plans to restore Edward, the Duke of Windsor to the throne if the Nazis won the war were discussed. The documents also revealed that the Duke was: “no enemy to Germany,” and would be the: “logical director of England’s destiny after the war”. The 1936 abdication of former King Edward VIII, demoted to the Duke of Windsor had nothing to do with his relationship with Wallis Simpson but the fact they were both Hitler groupies.

By 1937 they were sharing cups of tea at his Obersalzberg retreat giving Edward a chance to practice his Nazi salute. [28]The cover-story was that British intelligence, worried at Edward’s propensity to cock up war propaganda, sent a British warship to hastily dispatched the Duke and Duchess as far away as possible, dumping them on the Bahamas, where, in Churchill’s view the least damage could be done to the war effort. By way of compensation the Duke donned the role of Governor of the Bahamas much to the bemusement of Bahamians whose country he referred to as “a third-class British colony”.

Even less likely to have endeared him to their hearts was the Duke’s authoritative statements on Étienne Dupuch, the editor of the Nassau Daily Tribune whom the duke urged us to remember was: “more than half Negro, and due to the peculiar mentality of this Race, they seem unable to rise to prominence without losing their equilibrium.” [29] Statements such as these were repeated by Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, down through the decades but Edward kept up the tradition even as late as 1970 in which he told one interviewer: “I never thought Hitler was such a bad chap.” [30]

Investigative journalist Martin Frost discovered that Prince Charles’ much loved uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten (originally Battenburg, a branch of the House of Hesse) may have played a key role as: “…one of the central figures in the 1930s Nazi-British back-channel …” In fact, until his abdication King Edward VIII had the full backing of ‘Dickie’ Mountbatten. Secret channels of communication were maintained as World War II progressed much of it between the British royal family and: “… their pro-Hitler cousins in Germany, by Lord Mountbatten, through his sister Louise, who was crown princess of pro-Nazi Sweden. Louise was Prince Philip’s aunt.” [31]

Martin Frost’s research peels back further layers of the story. Far from the Duke of Windsor cultivating chummy relations with Hitler for his desire for peace, Portuguese Secret Service files first published in the London Observer and reported in Washington Times Nov. 20, 1995, revealed that:>

… the Duke of Windsor had been in close collaboration with the Nazis in Spain and Portugal to foment a revolution in wartime Britain, that would topple the Churchill government, depose his brother King George VI, and allow him to regain the throne, with Queen Wallis [Simpson, the American divorcée, for whom he abdicated the throne] at his side. Portuguese surveillance revealed that Walter Schellenberg, head of Gestapo counterintelligence, was one point of contact in this plot. After Schellenberg met with the Spanish ambassador to Portugal, Nicolás Franco, brother of fascist Gen. Francisco Franco, Ambassador Franco told a Portuguese diplomat: “The Duke of Windsor, free from the responsibilities of the war, in disagreement with English politicians, could be the man to put at the head of the Empire. [32]

In essence, after this very brief snapshot of fascism in German and British Royal families perhaps the most important point to consider is that the British Royal family and elements of the British Empire acted as a two-way conduit for Nazi ideology and practice in Germany – not necessarily the other way around. This would lay the ground for the eco-fascism to come. Hitler’s National Socialism is a quintessentially British and aristocratic creation. As we have seen, once a Pathocracy had manifested in Germany its seeds were sown in post-war global structures and in the National Security State of the United States.

 


* The reader may also remember that House of Hesse had an illustrious history with the House of Rothschild and none other than the now iconic secret society of “Illuminati” via Illuminist Prince Karl of Hesse. Though Illuminism has since been all the rage in popular culture it was likely only a splinter group which served as a good cover for those to continue work undisturbed.

The Light Bringer I

By M.K. Styllinski

“Perhaps enlightenment, technology and secularism haven’t cleared Europe of the oldest science of all – the occult.”

― Adam Nevill, Banquet For the Damned


To dismiss the occult as merely the infantile, ceremonial parlour games of a minority of irrational persons would be to seriously underestimate its ubiquitous presence throughout history. Dressing up in cloaks, masks and dancing around sacred, geometric designs has a part to play whether we believe in it or not. The majority of modern-day occultists and practitioners of Satanic rituals are more likely to wear military uniforms and corporate cufflinks, and they are deadly serious in their beliefs. The ancient world was saturated in religious influences right up to the reformation and the ascent of the scientific method which saw the power of the Church steadily decline. The underlying history of secret societies and occult worship has filled that vacuum and possibly increased its appeal as the National Security State gained ascendance.

Its hierarchical structure lends itself to the same pathogenic infection that the Catholic Church has suffered; the only difference being it is more difficult to track since the nature of the occult, as its name implies, is to hide, existing in the sub-strata of societies. Which is also why military, government and financial power structures are closely associated or have their roots in occult fraternities such as freemasonry and Illuminist/Rosicrucian brotherhood.

America was literally founded, in part, by freemasons with an occult imperative behind many of the present day U.S. institutions. * The New Age or Human Potential Movement have been intimately connected to occult clubs and societies since the inception of the United Nations and many other influential bodies in our 21st world. Commentators routinely underestimate the influx of policy sourced from New Age beliefs both benign and malign but nevertheless mingle together in a very unhealthy mix at top levels of power and responsibility. In one very real sense, the designs of neo-liberal economics, collectivists and Marxist World State advocates are underpinned by a more powerful and ancient impetus.

Many of the global shakers of today are occultists who have been studying the ancient mystery texts, their rituals and traditions dating back several thousand years, each claiming to be the authentic lineage of a Plan for humanity. The Theosophical and freemasonic traditions teach that each nation has a spiritual destiny which is guided by a hierarchy of beings otherwise known as “The Great White Brotherhood” or “Ascended Masters” who “overshadow” world leaders in order to manifest a “divine plan” for the world. Four masters—Kuthumi, (Koot Humi) El Morya, Rogoczy and the Tibetan Djwhal Khul – literary tools or real persons – had enormous influence in the lives of the intelligentsia, the romantic writers and Elite of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, all of whom laid down the programming of a coming New Age.

Just as many of the globalist leaders have Gurus to which they receive guidance and directives, so too, the original founding fathers, the bankers and corporatists of the Anglo-American Establishment had their “Masters” from which they followed carefully prepared objectives in order to contribute to the overall Master Plan. (Insert diabolical laugh …)

Freemasonry is possibly the oldest secret society on the planet. Members are convinced that it draws its roots from the ancient mysteries of Egypt and a fusion of Hebrew and ancient Egyptian Royalty. As one past Senior Grand Deacon described it: “Masonry is regarded as the direct descendent, or as a survival of the mysteries … of Isis and Osiris in Egypt …” [2] Evidence of this is clear to see in the rituals of British monarchy; the law courts and the Scottish rites of freemasonry. The merging of ancient Saturn and Sun cults along with the corrupted influence of what is essentially an ancient Egyptian death cult and the conjoining of ancient Hebrew families, still holds sway in freemasonic tradition. Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and the Babylonian (Lurianic) Kabbalah feature heavily in freemasonry and most occult traditions.  Special attention needs to be made regarding the British Monarchy and its Empire, which has a particular tradition of freemasonic influence and by extension, the presence of offshoots such as theosophy and the Lucis Trust which we will look at presently.

The Egyptian memorabilia which adorned Queen Elizabeth II and her surroundings as well as other cultural iconography in British institutions is still very much on display. Historians and antiquities experts such as John P. Pratt offer a degree of evidence for the origins of our Royal traditions stretching back to ancient Egypt. In Pratt’s article entitled: ‘Geological Evidence for the British Throne of David?’ first published in Meridian Magazine, on June 2, 2003 contains some interesting references to Royal obsession with Egypt. Whether true or not, the monarchy obviously believes they hail from Royal Egyptian bloodlines since the Establishment in general is obsessed with bloodline purity.

225px-Pharaoh.svgReturning to the coronation regalia, the monarch’s crown has twelve stones which represent the twelve Hebrew tribes. The twelve stones of these tribes were also worn on the breastplate of Hebrew high priests in Canaan. The Union Jack flag of the United Kingdom is red, white and blue, the same colours of the three crowns of Egypt. Today, Great Britain is the only nation called “Great.” In Hebrew, the word “Britain” means “land of the covenant” and “British” means “man of the covenant.” (Does it mean that Britain is the first modern staging post in a Greater Israel?) And according to several researchers immersed in Anglo-Israeli philosophy the covenant that the Biblical God gave to Abraham was a promise to make his name great and to offer him a nation … The symbols on the British coat of arms also show Britain’s Hebrew origins. If the Bible is correct, the harp symbolises the Hebrew King David; the Biblical lion and unicorn holding up the shield, the nation of Israel. The motto: Dieu et mon dior means: “God and my Right” which symbolizes the Divine Right of the British monarch to an eternal throne.

“The Stone of Jacob”, “Stone of Destiny” or “Stone of Skone” resides under the Queen’s throne which prompts a reasonable question: Why? Jacob was the twin of Esau both of whom were sons of Isaac, who was the son of Grand Patriarch Abraham. Jacob had fled to a place known today as Bethal in Israel on account of a dangerous rivalry between the two brothers. As the story goes, he lay down to rest on a large, smooth stone and dreamt of a stairway leading to heaven. Very much like the step pyramids built by the Egyptian kings. Which is a coincidence, since the Queen was crowned at her coronation ceremony on top of a symbolic Egyptian pyramid. During the coronation ceremony the Queen turned to face the four corners of the globe as was represented by the small globe she carried symbolising a global rule. In the wider field of monarchist ritual, Royal Jubilees are said to have originated in ancient Egypt where Pharaohs would celebrate 30 years of rule. As with the tradition of the Pharaohs, Queen Elizabeth II has celebrated both silver and golden and diamond jubilees.

Though partially hidden by her arm, the punishing flail or whip which can be seen in the coronation paintings and photos of the period also originate in ancient Egypt, as does the royal sceptre now carried by descendent pharaoh of our age – Queen Elizabeth II and once held by the Egyptian pharaoh kings. Taken from the diamond mines in South Africa in 1905 (during the period of Cecil Rhode’s adventures in the Transvaal) the world’s second largest cut diamond or The Great Star of Africa” is set in the top of the sceptre. (The world’s largest diamond is the Golden Jubilee diamond which now lies in the Royal Thai Palace as part of the crown jewels). [3]

Bees symbolised royalty in ancient Egypt and have since been associated freemasonic symbolism, including the infamous Illuminati or “Order of Bees”. [4] In the Queen’s wardrobe we also happen to find the symbol of the bee. (The Hive Mind of “group consciousness”?) Just as in-breeding was standard practice in ancient Egyptian royalty to keep the power, wealth and blood in the family, the prevalence of incest in royalty has also been well-documented along with the congenital diseases that have been acquired through such practices. Eugenics didn’t work then either though this hasn’t diluted the beliefs it can. The new science of epigenetics (genetic mechanisms enabling the effects of parents’ experiences to be passed down to subsequent generations) goes a long way in playing a part in passing on faulty genes which extends to psychological anomalies so much a part of European monarchies.

order-bees>Once again we see the continuance of an ancient Egyptian tradition with the burial of over 20 deceased British monarchs preserved in marble tomb slabs in Westminster Abby just as the “Pharaoh” Kings were preserved and entombed in pyramid temples. And perhaps like the ancient Egyptian Kings, British monarchs wear cygnet rings passed down through the ages by ancient Hebrew ancestors. The ancient pharaohs liked to flaunt their power on stone monuments and coinage. Queen Elizabeth’s image has been printed on more coins and stamps than any other head of state in History.

At least, that’s the theory, even if historians dispute these allusions. Whether some of these details and rituals stem from the imagination of British romantics of over 200 years ago, there is certainly some mileage in these clusters of coincidences.

Moving further afield we can still see the immense influence of freemasonry-Egyptian ritual in dress and code. Judges and barristers wear the head-dress which originated in Egypt, while the kilts of the Scottish clans derive from pharaohs’ fashion. Even the Pope’s head-dress is spitting image for the God Amen and his bent sceptre that of the Sceptre of Amen. The structure of government in ancient Egypt was a step pyramid model with a hierarchy of priests and Viziers serving the pharaohs. The British monarchy rules in much the same way as does the Catholic Church and occult societies, all of which have their common heritage in the perceived Synarchy of certain dynasties in ancient Egypt.

From a complex mish-mash of copy and paste mythology, some of which we have looked at in Judeo-Christian propaganda, a common feature from alternative historians is that there seems to be a very grand cover-up by the Hebrew authors of the Bible to hide the fact that Hebrews and Egyptians shared the same royal feudalist bloodline. During the demise of their integrated reign and their banishment from Egypt, the only way they could hold onto power was by hiding their Hebrew identity and changing their names to Egyptian ones and intermarrying with Egyptian royalty. A particular tribe of Hebrews insinuated their way into Egyptian customs and law and not only did they hide from the Egyptians but also the Hebrew people. Their worship of Gods was hidden in Royal inner circles and secret societies just as it has continued to be today. The descendants of Hebrew pharaohs of Egypt have ruled with an iron fist down through history raising Empires and pulling down civilisations in their wake. But World Empire is and has always been their objective.

Although there is an abundance of circumstantial evidence the theory remains speculative. So much so that it might be one book red herring. In fact, Hebrew culture may have intentionally purloined Egyptian mythology in order to promote itself and usurp the throne of history (See The “Z” Factor: Masada and Other Myths).

Nonetheless, freemasonry and its Egyptian roots were used as inspiration for a great many esoteric writers which usually included updated versions of the totalitarian nature of the priesthood at the time. One of these was Alexandre Saint-Yves d’Alveydre (1842–1909) the first to use the term “Synarchy” in his book La France vraie in order to describe what he believed to be the ideal form of rule by Elite. It was said to be in response to the rise in anarchist thought and part of Saint-Yves’s political philosophy – Synarchy, as opposed to anarchy. He believed in distinct socio-economic class system that denoted a neo-feudalist order within a Federal Europe; a government composed of three councils, one for academia, one for the judiciary, and one for commerce. This is essentially the driving belief behind most leaders and their shadow governments in Europe and the United States.[5]

Alexandre Saint-Yves d’Alveydre

Synarchy might be called a form of occult theocracy (or rule by priesthood) modelled on a mix of enlightened monarchism, sitting atop a caste system and finished off with the icing of fascism. Saint-Yves was extremely excited about the very same things as Alice Bailey, namely the obsession with World Order channelled through the United Nations and creating states and Unity in the material world. The only problem with attempting to mirror the hypothesis of Oneness and Unity at this level and which may exist at a higher level of being is that you induce and increase materialism permitting the arrival of pathocratic rule by the back door. Authors and researchers Lynne Picknett and Clive Prince make the same point that: “Some of the greatest figures in subsequent occult history were devotees of Saint-Yves, which is not surprising because occultists, with their love of hierarchy, tend to be naturally totalitarian and unegalitarian.”.[6]

Esoteric writers such as Rene Guenon, Julius Evola, and crypto-Egyptologist R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz embraced Synarchy with great enthusiasm thereby disseminating the precepts of spiritual fascism far and wide. The latter author was particularly keen to paint ancient Egypt as the first culture of Synarchy which, although it eventually ended up imploding into its own entropic footprint and offering very little to the world at large he nonetheless preferred to believe the late dynastic Egyptian totalitarianism was something to emulate, like so many Egyptologists.

In Saint-Yves’ first book on Synarchy, Keys to the East (1877) there is a clarion call for a United Europe stemming from his beliefs in a cosmic order and a past Golden Age of enlightened rule. Governed by a spiritually advanced Elite, they periodically send a messenger into the human world to spread the gospel of their presence. The custodians of this Synarchist tradition were none other than an Ascended Brotherhood, preservers of the Synarchist revelation – with their headquarters in secret realm called Agartha, hidden deep in the Himalayas. To show that he was serious about his visions, 1886 was the year that Saint-Yves founded the Syndicate of the Professional and Economic Press which was designed to trumpet Synarchy to movers and shakers in industry and politics. Unsurprisingly, and given what we know about the wartime Vichy government it was very attractive to many French politicians. As a result Saint-Yves was no doubt tickled pink when he was made a Chévalier of the Légion d’honneur in 1893 – a perfect gesture for a Synarchist obsessed by status.

As with all power-crazed individuals looking for greater control Saint-Yves’ disciples “… decided on inveigling their members into key positions in political and economic institutions intending on creating, in the words of Richard F. Kuisel, a specialist in twentieth-century French political history, ‘a world government by an initiated elite.’ Synarchy came to stand for ‘rule by secret society’, which in practice makes it difficult to distinguish between card-carrying Synarchists and those merely under their influence.” [7]

As Synarchist ideas had already been incorporated into Theosophy they would in turn, be absorbed into the emerging tinder-box of Nazi ideology thereby representing a form of occult “blow-back” for Europe and America. The war-time fascist Vichy regime and Franco-German and Italian alliance continued the tradition as part of a fascist network dedicated to establishing a Pan European Union. An 18-page French military intelligence report on the French Synarchist groups, Found in wartime archives dated July 1941 provides some interesting details into the development of the fascist apparatus.

According to Executive Intelligence Review: “The report dealt with the Synarchist Movement of Empire (SME), the Synarchist Revolutionary Convention (SRC) and the Secret Committee of Revolutionary Action (SCRA), the military leadership arm of the SME, also known as the “Cagoulards” (the “hooded ones”).  These groups had organised in secret toward a common and unified objective:

A European takeover by stealth:

“The Synarchist movement is an international movement born after the Versailles Treaty, which was financed and directed by certain financial groups belonging to the top international banking community. Its aim is essentially to overthrow in every country, where they exist, the parliamentary regimes which are considered insufficiently devoted to the interests of these groups and therefore, too difficult to control because of the number of persons required to control them.

“SME proposes therefore to substitute them by authoritarian regimes more docile and more easily manueverable. Power would be concentrated in the hands of the CEOs of industry and in designated representatives of chosen banking groups for each country. In a word, the idea is to give to each country a political constitution and an appropriate national economic structure organized for the following purposes:

1. Place the political power directly into the hands of chosen people and eliminate all intermediaries.

2. Establish a maximum concentration of industries and suppress all unwarranted competition.

3. Establish an absolute control of prices of all goods (raw materials, semi-finished or finished goods).

4. Create judicial and social institutions that would prevent all extremes of action.”  [8]

These movements in turn all had there occult members whose metaphysical principles underpinned geopolitical objectives. Whether you talk of Anglo-American Establishment or the European Synarchists – they differ in details but follow the same New World Order-Mantra. And of course, Synarchy has a strong connection to the European elite and its dreams of a federalist European Union and eventual super-state. The fascist nexus of Pan-European and Catholic fascism is still alive and kicking although it has had to re-evaluate its grand plan of European integration after their economic cartelism and corruption came home to roost. (The current European nexus of synarchist beliefs which has traditionally been seeded in France presently resides in Le Cercle with a strong association with branches of European freemasonry).

There is no question that there are many freemasons dedicated to the good of humanity but the beliefs and Establishment ties, not least the historic lineage to ancient Egypt, suggest that such an occult fraternity at the higher degrees is characterized by a Satanic set of beliefs. After all, freemasonry’s primary goal is the re-instatement of this mystery religion for the coming World Order. What quality this order will take depends on who is in control at the top of their pyramid where more benevolent designs tend to hang around the bottom or mid-level tiers of knowledge. Despite freemasons silently carrying out great acts of noble-minded charity the real reason behind freemasonry is spiritual evolution and the perfection of their human nature so that it becomes more “god-like” whereby a veritable “superman” can manifest. It is these themes and objectives which are so easily distorted and co-opted into purely egoistic and material pursuits. Layers within layers afford secrecy and obtuse arcane knowledge to flow down from above.

The nature of this secrecy was described by another famous mason Manly P. Hall:

“Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity — an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect. Before it is possible to intelligently discuss the origin of the Craft, it is necessary, therefore, to establish the existence of these two separate yet interdependent orders, the one visible and the other invisible. The visible society is a splendid camaraderie of ‘free and accepted’ men enjoined to devote themselves to ethical, educational, fraternal, patriotic, and humanitarian concerns. The invisible society is a secret and most august fraternity whose members are dedicated to the service of a mysterious arcanum arcanorum. Those Brethren who have essayed to write the history of their Craft have not included in their disquisitions the story of that truly secret inner society which is to the body Freemasonic what the heart is to the body human.” [9]

That being so, the direction and interpretation of the “Arcanum arcanorum” and the responsibility of power that this entails must then be entrusted to whom? Is that we, the great unwashed must simply trust such people who seek to employ: “… the seething energies of Lucifer” and prove his ability to properly apply energy”? [9]

Two facts present themselves: 1) The very focus and rituals of freemasonry have been drawn from the fusion of ancient Egyptian Synarchism and Judeo-Christian beliefs 2) Freemasonic fraternities have so many cracks and holes which offer a comprehensive psychological degeneration (ponerogenesis) to occur over a long period of time that it is almost unthinkable that this hasn’t happened.

How would such a ponerisation be prevented when time and again we see the same patterns of pathogenic infection in relatively young social systems?

 


* An explanation of how New Age thought and New World Order and its collectivist themes are drawn from the same freemasonic philosophy of the original founding fathers. This is explored in Robert Hieronimus’ America’s Secret Destiny.

Thus in 1779, two years after his Masonic initiation, Weishaupt writes a letter to fellow illuminists “Marius” (Hertel, the Canon of Munich) [AB: 697] and “Cato” (Xavier Zwack) suggesting that the Illuminati be renamed “Order of the Bees,” and to change all statutes to reflect the allegory. [NW: 229] Nesta Webster also points to the fact that anarchist Proudhon would later adopt the Beehive motif for himself – either the Illuminati or Freemasonry could have supplied the influence. The revolutionary Circle of Philadelphians founded in 1784 by Moreau de Saint-Mery, a member of the famed Masonic Lodge of Nine Sisters in Paris, also used “a hive of swarming bees as a symbol.” [JB: 108, 545]
