Secret Societies - The Freemasons
The Freemasons are a very important secret society within the corrupt establishment power structure; members swear oaths to keep the secrets of Freemasonry or be killed. After William Morgan announced his intention to publish a book exposing Freemasonry's secrets in Batavia, New York in 1826, he was arrested, allegedly kidnapped by Masons, and believed murdered http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Morgan_%28anti-Mason%29. Fortunately for those interested in the truth Morgan’s book, Illustrations of Masonry, was published shortly after his disappearance (It was republished later under other titles, e.g.: Morgan’s Freemasonry Exposed and Explained, The Mysteries of Freemasonry). http://www.murderbygaslight.com/2009/12/william-morgan-revenge-of-freemasons.html and http://pictoumasons.org/library/Morgan,%20William%20~%20Illustrations%20of%20Masonry%20%5Bpdf%5D.pdf
Reviewing the references used for this article so far we can already see that the Wikipedia team is loyal to the Freemasons because there is no mention that William Morgan's book was ever published in the Wikipedia article about him http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Morgan_%28anti-Mason%29. Nearly 200 years later the Freemasons work to control the media in order to keep their secrets from becoming known.
History of the Freemasonry
Senior Freemasons don't enjoy people researching the true Knights Templar origins of their organisation. In 2007 John Hamill, communications director of the United Grand Lodge of England, said of Templar Degrees with Freemasonry "We don't claim any descent. They originated as a means of commemorating the original Templars and of exemplifying certain Masonic principles," http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/7050713.stm The BBC article goes on to say of the Knights Templar "But the conspiracy theorists will continue looking for those elusive secret descendants, and a smattering of ambiguity will always fuel them"
Maybe "conspiracy theorist" is secret BBC code for "people who can read books" because Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (Morals and Dogma), published by the Supreme Council, Thirty Third Degree, of the Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction of the United States in 1872, includes the following passage concerning the demise of the doomed Knights Templar Order :
"The end of the drama is well known, and how Jacques de Molai and his fellows perished in the flames. But before his execution, the Chief of the doomed Order organized and instituted what afterward came to be called the Occult, Hermetic, or Scottish Masonry. In the gloom of his prison, the Grand Master created four Metropolitan Lodges, at Naples for the East, at Edinburg for the West, at Stockholm for the North, and at Paris for the South." [The initials of his name, J B M found in the same order in the first three Degrees, are but one of the many internal and cogent proofs that such was the origin of modern FreeMasonry. The legend of Osiris was revived and adopted, to symbolize the destruction of the Order, and the resurrection of Khürüm, slain in the body of the Temple, of KHÜRÜM ABAI, the Master, as the martyr of fidelity to obligation, of Truth and Conscience, prophesied the restoration to life of the buried association.]" http://www.hermetics.org/pdf/masonry/Albert_Pike_-_Morals_and_Dogma.pdf
A copy of Albert Pike's Morals and Dogma was given to every new member of the Southern Jurisdiction from the early 1900s until 1969 (although some local Scottish Rite bodies offered copies through the mid 1970s), when it was deemed "too advanced to be helpful to the new Scottish Rite member."
According to Morals and Dogma "The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Masonry has now become, what Masonry at first was meant to be, a Teacher of Great Truths, inspired by an upright and enlightened reason, a firm and constant wisdom, and an affectionate and liberal philanthropy."
Such truths were originally known by the Masters of the Knights Templar who planned world domination for themselves by overthro. Here is more from Morals and Dogma about the Knights Templar's knowledge and ambitions:
"To acquire influence and wealth, then to intrigue, and at need to fight, to establish the Johannite or Gnostic and Kabalistic dogma, were the object and means proposed to the initiated Brethren. The Papacy and the rival monarchies, they said to them, are sold and bought in these days, become corrupt, and to-morrow, perhaps, will destroy each other. All that will become the heritage of the Temple: the World will soon come to us for its Sovereigns and Pontiffs. We shall constitute the equilibrium of the Universe, and be rulers over the Masters of the World."
"The Templars, like all other Secret Orders and Associations had two doctrines, one concealed and reserved for the Masters, which was Johannism; the other public, which was the Roman Catholic. Thus they deceived the adversaries whom they sought to supplant."
Johannism or Gnosticism is the understanding that a person can open up to and experience direct telepathic contact with the mind of God and receive Gnosis (spiritual knowledge). It was practiced by Shamanic Hunter Gather societies world-wide before mankind invented agriculture and developed organised religion. Prior to the advent of the church, people routinely used hallucinogenic drugs to achieve altered states of consciousness and received Gnosis. Beginning in Sumeria and Ancient Egypt, before developing a global power centre in Rome, organised religion claimed spiritual authority over the people and insisted that the only way to God was through its own priests and teachings; shamanic practices were gradually driven underground into mystery schools because the ruling aristocracy preferred obedient workers and soldiers over enlightened conscious members of society with their own moral compass. In western society today the ruling class are replacing organised religion with atheism and "expert" scientist authority figures such as Richard Dawkins tell the people that God does not exist and that creation of the universe is just a random accident. This is an excellent strategy for removing meaning from the life of the masses and making them slaves to consumer society.
Students of European mystery schools have been obliged to conduct spiritual practices in secret ever since the Roman Catholicism extinguished the Greek Elusinian Mystery School, which employed Ergot to generate altered states of consciousness http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleusinian_Mysteries
