Perfectibilists, The 18th Century Bavarian Order of the Illuminati
Terry Melanson is the owner and developer of the popular online Illuminati Conspiracy Archive and has been writing about the Illuminati since 2000. He lives in Moncton, New Brunswick. In this program, Terry talks about his book, "Perfectibilists: The 18th Century Bavarian Order of the Illuminati". We begin by talking about the origins, the ideology, the philosophy and purpose of the order. Terry begins at 1776 when the order was started. We also discuss the founder Adam Weishaput and the other important people in the order like Adolph Freiherr Knigge and Johann Adam von Ickstatt. Topics discussed: the enlightenment, anti-monarchy, nobility, the Hapsburgs, egalitarianism, The French Revolution, J. J. C. Bode, Jacobinism, three edicts, Duke of Brunswick and Hesse-Kassel. In part two, we talk about the Illuminati Order today. Has their ideology survived? If so, is it entangled with modern politics? We also discuss, in relation to the Illuminati Order, the new world order, CFR, Freemasonry, Agenda 21, The Earth Charter, royalty, the Bilderberg meetings and the World Wildlife Fund. Then, we talk about Desposyni, Richard N. Haass, Socialism, Anarchism, Communism, the Rothschild's banking dynasty and the birth of the "royal" post service. We end, by talking about Beethoven, Mozart and their possible involvement/connection to the Illuminati Order.
