Popular Music: A Key Illuminati Tool

Music is a powerful influence, both for good and evil. In The Republic, Plato recognized its potential as a disintegrating force and advocated its control.

In the modern era, Antonio Gramsci recognized that Communism (an Illuminati movement) could succeed only if the traditional culture, including music, was first subverted.

For the past two generations, popular music has become openly hostile to traditional values. While some forms, such as country, have resisted this trend, most popular music is a purveyor of drugs, rebellion, perverted sex, the primitive and the occult, and Satanism.

Traditional values always rest upon a religious foundation, so the most powerful attack in a culture war is an attack upon the underlying faith. Satanism, which inverts the Judeo-Christian tradition – calling evil good and good evil – is the sharpest possible attack.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Satanism in music first became visible when the face of Aleister Crowley appeared on the cover of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper album. Before long this was followed by the Rolling Stones’ song, Sympathy for the Devil. Throughout the 70s this trend gained traction.

It wasn’t until the 80s, though, that I was shocked to see blatant Satanism making its appearance in American living rooms. I turned on the TV one afternoon (about the time that Dick Clark used to host American Bandstand) and saw Joan Jett and the Blackhearts performing. They were jabbing their hands at the camera, giving the sign of the horns, while “singing” (in actuality, screaming) curses.

Since then, displays of Satanism – from Madonna to Eminem to Jay-Z –have proliferated. Are such displays for real? Are the performers really Satanists? Or is this just an act to titillate an audience and gain notoriety?

It doesn’t matter. Either way Satanic influence infects the culture. What better way to get most performers, and audiences, to adopt Satanism than to let them think it isn’t to be taken seriously, that it’s an act, that it’s cool.

No doubt some performers are Satanists. But more important, many of those who control the music industry snd determine which performers are promoted, are Satanists. Today, Satanism is deeply entrenched in the music industry.

A current example is Lil Wayne, a well-known performer of minimal gifts, who is featured on a music video called “On Fire.” In it, he is seduced by a woman who is “hot.” She is really (supposedly) a devil from hell.

One has only to compare this video to the movie “Body Heat” (1981), which has a similar theme, to see how crude and stupid the video is. But that seems to be part of the idea. It seems to be deliberately primitive and stupefying.

The song, indeed the whole production, is sub-literate. Its thousand jump cuts make you feel (as TV in general does) as if something significant is happening, or about to happen, but in the end it leaves you feeling empty and wasted. In the meantime, you have left your spirit open and unguarded, so that subliminal images and messages implant themselves in your soul.

Preparing the Way of Satan

How did all this come about? What enabled Gramsci’s cultural revolution (i.e., cultural destruction) to succeed? The answer is: the creation of a “youth culture.” Only when a generation gap had been created was there an opening to subvert that culture and to corrupt its members.

And that process – so far as my own experience is concerned – began long ago, with music that seemed not only innocuous but wholesome.

I was a small child when Rogers and Hammerstein’s musical “South Pacific” became fantastically popular. Romantic songs such as “Some Enchanted Evening” and comic songs such as “There Is Nothing Like a Dame” captivated the public. Two or three of the songs, including “Bali Ha’i,” were on the Top Ten.

But young as I was, one of the songs particularly stuck in my mind. It had a haunting, rather melancholy sound, and the words made a strong impression on me.

You’ve got to be taught, before it’s too late,
Before you are six, or seven, or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You’ve got to be carefully taught.

Isn’t this just a nice song decrying prejudice? Who could object? But beneath its surface, South Pacific suggests that war (and personal unhappiness) is somehow the result of racial hatred and also of sexual repression. (Bali Ha’i is a kind of fantasy paradise of sexual license.)

And the song “Carefully Taught” teaches that this social pathology, which leads to war and personal misery, is the product of… yes, the family. To break this cycle of “hate,” we need to separate the children (the younger the better) from their families, to break the bond that connects them.

Get mothers out of the home and into jobs. Get the children into kindergarten, into pre-school, into day care. And get the schools, rather than the family, to teach the children values.
Teach them that all cultures, however primitive, are equal. Teach them that all sexual “life styles,” including the perverted, are equal. Teach them that it’s wrong to hate anyone (except one’s own family). Then we can sing “Carefully Taught” the way Rogers and Hammerstein really meant it.

You’ve got to be taught, before it’s too late,
Before you are six, or seven, or eight,
To love all the people you’d naturally hate.
You’ve got to be carefully taught.


The Illuminati are Luciferians and Satanists. They seek to “ascend into heaven… above the stars of God,” to “be like the Most High.” They want to make man (i.e., themselves) God.

To accomplish this, they have to destroy the bedrock faith of our culture. And to do this, they need to fragment the family, so as to have a free hand with the nascent generation. Once the Illuminati succeed in severing the ties between the generations, their power becomes complete.

Once they destroy the past, they will control the future.

That’s their goal. They feel they are close now to final victory. But, thank God, they will not, cannot succeed.

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
And he will turn
The hearts of the fathers to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.
