As a 33rd degree Mason, Pike was a founding father and leader of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in the United States. From 1859 until his death, he was Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry.
Pike was also a Satanist. He wore a bracelet he utilized to summon Lucifer, with whom he claimed have constant communication. Pike was the Grand Master of a Luciferian group known as the Order of the Palladium (also called Sovereign Council of Wisdom), which had been founded in Paris in 1737. Palladism had been brought to Greece from Egypt by Pythagoras in the fifth century. This Secret Cult of Satan was introduced into the inner circle of the Masonic lodges.
On May 1, 1776 (the original May Day), a Bavarian anarchist named Adam Weishaupt formed a secret society known as the Illuminati (the "enlightened ones"). Its ultimate goal was the formation of a one-world government that would be covertly controlled by the secret society.
In 1834, Giusseppe Mazzini, an Italian who later founded the Mafia in 1860, was selected by the Illuminati to head worldwide operations. Mazzini was a 33rd degree Mason who believed in the unification of Europe, and ultimately in a unification of the entire planet under one ruling order.
Mazzini recruited Albert Pike into the Illuminati.
Pike liked the idea of a one-world government and wrote a ritual tome to guide like-minded Masons into the top rank (33rd degree), a secret Illuminati tier within the Freemason structure.
Of the tome, Mazzini wrote, "Through this supreme rite, we will govern all Freemasonry which will become one international center, the more powerful because its direction will be unknown."
Between 1859 and 1871, Pike created a military blueprint for three world wars and numerous global revolutions he considered to be favorable toward creating a one-world government in its final stage in the 20th Century
In 1871, as Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Albert Pike wrote a letter to Mazzini, outlining the three world wars that would lead to global domination of their Secret Cult. These wars were to be created by Illuminati operatives, as well as funded by Illuminati interests who would reap great rewards from the conflict.
The first world war was to be a conflict between the Germanic empires and the British Empire. The primary objective of this conflict was to overthrow the Czars of Russia.
The second world war was designed to lead to the creation of a sovereign state (Israel) in Palestine. The primary objective for creating a homeland for Zionists (Jewish migrants to the Promised Land) in the Middle East was to eventually trigger a global war within the Islamic world that would lead to the ultimate goal of control of the entire planet.
The first two world wars instigated by the Illuminati have been carried out as planned.
The following was written by Pike in the 1871 letter to Mazzini concerning plans for World War III.
"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the Illuminati between the political Zionists and the leaders of the Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (Moslem World) and Political Zionism (the state of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile, the other nations, once more divided on this issue, will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economic exhaustion."
