  • (eerie piano music)

  • - [Narrator] Communism isn't what it seems on the surface.

  • (eerie piano music)

  • How do secret societies have anything

  • to do directly with communism?

  • We'll introduce the missing puzzle piece.

  • Is anything ever really that simple?

  • (eerie instrumental music)

  • Weishaupt's methods of secrecy and deception

  • were well beyond anything we've ever seen.

  • Where did communism first come from?

  • (upbeat techno music)

  • - [Female] Edge of Wonder .

  • - Hey everyone, welcome to Edge of Wonder,

  • this is part two of our communism series,

  • Communism and Illuminism.

  • Many of you have been asking us about Adam Weishaupt,

  • and how he relates to the IllumiDonkey.

  • Others have been asking us whether

  • the Freemasons are good or bad.

  • We've also gotten many questions about the Knights Templar

  • and how they fit into the entire equation.

  • - Well everyone, hold on to your hats,

  • because in this episode we're gonna show you

  • the hidden history of secret societies

  • and this new world order only told

  • through the formation of communism.

  • Man, who would have thought?

  • - Now often when people talk about communism,

  • they think it was just some Russian thing

  • that's no longer a threat.

  • For some people,

  • they might think it has to do with some kind of revolution,

  • or they might know that China is still a communist country

  • and that Mao Zedong starved a lot of people

  • and was a nut job.

  • - When they dig a little further,

  • they might start to learn about the French Revolution

  • and just think that communism came about

  • because of a bunch of surface philosophies and philosophers,

  • which, I mean, you can hardly call them that,

  • came about because France legitimately needed reform.

  • - Is anything ever really that simple?

  • Can you think of any huge change that wasn't impacted

  • or is not a result of many different factors

  • all intersecting at once?

  • Simply think about how complicated it is

  • when a war starts and all the events that lead up to it.

  • - While researching communism,

  • we found a very buried source.

  • An academic researcher and author named Nesta Webster,

  • who could really be considered the great grandmother

  • of all conspiracy theorists.

  • Or conspiracy realists, as I heard someone say.

  • - That's true. (chuckling)

  • - [Ben] The book is called World Revolution,

  • the Plot Against Civilization.

  • - Webster predates Fritz Springmeier by 80 years,

  • at a time when using the phrase conspiracy theorist

  • wasn't a trigger word to get you to

  • automatically reject anything someone says.

  • - This lady was exposing the IllumiDonkey

  • when Fritz Springmeier wasn't even

  • a twinkle in his grandmother's eyes.

  • And as we read, we were dumbfounded by her research.

  • - Her work is so sourced

  • that it's impossible to deny her findings.

  • She read the actual original documents and personal letters

  • of those behind these movements from both France and Germany

  • tracking back the genesis of every secret society

  • and everything that's changed our world,

  • and why today is how it is.

  • You guys excited?

  • So are we.

  • - We found it strange that this source

  • would be sitting there without any drama behind it,

  • so we decided to look into the person,

  • and lo and behold, there was drama.

  • We found out that she's currently known

  • in the academic circles as a Nazi sympathizer.

  • This claim on her reputation was so serious,

  • for the most part, all her works have been rejected

  • in current studies.

  • - But, as we stated in our last episode,

  • we found that Hitler may in fact

  • have been of the Rothschild bloodline,

  • making this situation much more involved than we thought.

  • And as we've seen with people like author Cotton Mather,

  • and many others, these things are complicated,

  • and should be looked at both historically

  • and from a third-party perspective,

  • taking emotion completely out of the equation.

  • - Why do we say that?

  • Her work largely took place before Hitler's genocide.

  • She was so good at researching that she was an informant

  • to both British and American intelligence agencies.

  • Several quotes from top officials

  • at the time can be found about her.

  • - So we decided to read on and see what Nesta found,

  • and try to figure out the situation for ourselves.

  • We've now read several works from Nesta Webster,

  • and we're baffled at finding that she was

  • very against entities undermining mankind,

  • particularly those of communism,

  • and there isn't even an inkling of hate

  • towards anything but those entities

  • that seem to be undermining humans.

  • - However, in her findings, Nesta made a grave oversight.

  • She found that people who called themselves Jews

  • were behind several subversive movements.

  • Because of that, she confused these people

  • who called themselves Jews as actual Jews.

  • - She ended up joining societies

  • that considered themselves fascist

  • before those fascist societies

  • are considered what they are today.

  • But it's also extremely doubtful

  • she would consider herself a fascist in today's day and age,

  • after seeing the way history played out.

  • - She was fooled by Hitler,

  • as were many other people of the time,

  • and thought he understood what she did.

  • So she even defended him at certain points.

  • And then when Hitler did what he did,

  • unfortunately, the damage was done.

  • - People now consider her a fascist, but what's strange,

  • as we stated in our last episode,

  • she was against what communism,

  • the most murderous specter on the planet, was doing.

  • - She was against these things and people being undermined,

  • so this was a very complicated situation.

  • - So, by reading her books, are Ben and I fascist?

  • Hell no.

  • Every race and every person on the planet

  • was literally created by the divine,

  • we have nothing but love for everyone.

  • - However, what she found was so mind blowing

  • that as we as a people have to take a look at it

  • and consider it.

  • So let's once again put down what history has said

  • and take a look at this for ourselves,

  • and see if we can uncover the truth

  • behind the secret societies and communism.

  • - Yeah, let's think for ourselves

  • instead of listening to a talking head, what a concept.

  • - What is communism and where did it come from?

  • - In multiple sources that we've looked through,

  • including The Epoch Times' Specter of Communism,

  • it is said that the seeds of communism could be traced back

  • to ancient Greek philosophers of our civilization.

  • Not all of them, of course, but some of them.

  • - There was then a long time between that

  • and when things started to flare up in recent times.

  • To track all of this you have to look at

  • what happened in Europe, particularly in France,

  • leading up to the French Revolution.

  • - In 1185 there was a movement

  • called the Confrerie de la Paix,

  • which translates to the Fellowship of the Peace.

  • They attacked nobles and clergy

  • and focused on setting up a community of land.

  • Their belief system was called nationalization.

  • - This confrerie led to something called the albigeois,

  • who in 1250 used the same theory

  • to also attack nobles and priests.

  • Sounds like a common theme, right?

  • And keep in mind that these things happened in France,

  • where there was a clear distinction

  • between nobles and common folk.

  • - Coincidentally, and also in 1250,

  • an order of knights was founded in Jerusalem

  • called the Knights Templars.

  • After the crusades, when the Templars returned to France,

  • they positioned themselves as independent

  • to the French monarchy under the leader Jacques de Molay.

  • - This power was at odds with the king of the time,

  • King Philippe le Bel, and in October of 1307,

  • on Friday the 13th, several of these Templars were arrested

  • and accused of spitting on crucifixes,

  • denying Christ through various means,

  • and of course accused of worshiping Baphomet.

  • - Several of these Knights Templar were executed,

  • including the grand master of the Templars, Molay.

  • This might seem like a random thing to share here,

  • but according to this version of the story,

  • one that's been tracked back, we're looking at the genesis

  • of none other than the Freemasons.

  • - [Ben] Nesta says --

  • - [Narrator] "According to the Chevalier de Malet,"

  • "those Templars who had escaped the storm"

  • "afterwards met in obscurity"

  • "so as to reknit the ties that had united them."

  • "And in order to avoid fresh denunciations,"

  • "they made use of allegorical methods"

  • "which indicated the basis of their association"

  • "in a manner unintelligible to the eyes of the vulgar."

  • "That is the origin of the Freemasons."

  • - In our episode,

  • we're going to call these the French Freemasons,

  • because there was an apparent divide

  • between those French Freemasons in France

  • and those in Britain,

  • which had developed in a very different way.

  • - [Ben] The British Freemasons actually developed

  • from a real guild of masons,

  • and there was a spirit of brotherhood and benevolence

  • seen also in the early years of the Americas.

  • Freemasonry has many lodges, so it's easy to see how lodges,

  • especially lodges in different countries,

  • could develop in different ways.

  • - The British freemasonry had a stringent set of principles

  • that were always followed of, quote,

  • "nothing touching religion or government"

  • "shall ever be spoken of in the lodge", unquote.

  • - The details of freemasonry development

  • are a little outside the scope of this discussion,

  • but we're trying to give everyone what they need

  • in relation to this episode.

  • - French freemasonry really is one of the keys

  • in this whole dialogue.

  • There was a sect of the French Freemasons found in the 1700s

  • called the Grand Chapter.

  • - The Grand Chapter, all these years later,

  • were still fueled by the desire to avenge

  • their executed leader, Jacques de Molay,

  • targeting the two entities that caused these executions.

  • Royalty and the papacy.

  • - The Grand Chapter, which were also Freemasons,

  • created a pact with another secret society

  • at the time called the Grand Orient.

  • - Webster had this to say.

  • - [Narrator] "The grand orient began a coalition"

  • "with the Grand Chapter in 1786"

  • "which acquired a far more dangerous character".

  • "For whilst the spirit of the Grand Orient"

  • "was frankly democratic, though not demagogic,"

  • "the spirit of the Grand Chapter was revolutionary."

  • "But the revolution was to be accomplished"

  • "above all for the benefit of the upper class,"

  • "la haute bourgeoisie, with the people as its instrument".

  • - Now, there is one more peripheral

  • secret society of the time.

  • Before we get to the most important one

  • that's necessary to mention, and bear with us,

  • because all of this is going to start making sense

  • very soon.

  • - A group called the Martinistes, or Martinism,

  • also is founded in Portugal in 1754

  • by a man named Martinez Pasqually.

  • This group came about and combined gnosticism

  • and what's called Judaized Christianity.

  • How all of these existed together is beyond us.
