“When the Mason learns that the Key to the warrior on the block is the proper allocation of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the Mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply (this) energy.” –Manly P. Hall, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry
David Spangler is a respected spiritualist who has been Director of Planetary Initiative at the United Nations. He wrote in his book Reflections on the Christ, “Lucifer, like Christ, stands at the door of man’s consciousness and knocks…He becomes the being who carriers that great treat, the ultimate treat, the light of wisdom.’ (p. 41)

Some organizations to consider are the Freemasons, Skull and Bones, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Club of Rome, and the Bilderbergs. Other associate organizations are (or were) the Grand Orient Lodges, P2, the Black Nobility, the Illuminati, the Rosicrucians, the Knights Templar, and the Priory of Sion. Conspiracists argue that the main agenda of these organizations is an eventual global consolidation of power. Many of these groups are also said to be heavily involved in the religious and spiritual implications of this goal as well.
Benito Mussolini said, “Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.” And from Woodrow Wilson, “We are controlled by a small group of dominant men. The worst ruled and most completely controlled government in the civilized world. Some of the biggest men in the United States are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” Arnsall Rothschild was famously quoted, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.”
Lao Tzu counters, “…The more rules and regulations, the more thieves and robbers…The world is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be ruled by interfering.”
