Like millions of others, my wife and I have been enjoying the PBS Masterpiece series, “Downton Abbey.”Set in an English Manor House during World War One, the costume drama depicts the prevalent attitude to the war: that a man’s virility and honor are measured by his willingness to sacrifice his life for his country.There is no questioning the necessity of this war, or any suspicion that it is a sinister ruse.In fact, the only character who is cynical about the war is the villain, Thomas, who engineers a minor injury to escape service.We see the young heir to the Estate, Matthew Crawley paralyzed from the waist down. This is what happens when you run into a hail of machine gun fire and mortar shells. He seems surprised by the consequences of his “heroism.” He will never be able to walk, or to procreate.
This is what the Illuminati (Masonic) bankers wanted, to destroy Europe’s best.
The Masonic bankers were only a few hundred, and many were getting old. They were better at making deals, having gay sex and performing child sacrifices. They were not capable, all by themselves, of slaughtering millions of strong, young men.
So they patiently concocted a world war. This had the advantage of being highly profitable. They owned the companies that made the machine guns and munitions that maimed and killed the young men.
Their overall goal was to bring down Christian civilization. The German, Austrian and Russian monarchies were all destroyed.
Illuminati Jews and Masons hate Christianity first and foremost. “Christianity is our only real enemy since all the political and economic phenomena of the bourgeois states are only its consequences,” Insider C. Rakovsky, tells his interrogator.
Out with the old Christian order would emerge the (satanic) New World Order! ( This is the real meaning of “revolution” and “progressive.”)
“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime,” said the British Foreign Secretary Edward Grey, a Freemason who played a major role in engineering this catastrophe.
He got the leaders of France and Russia to sign a secret treaty that stated that if Germany or Austria-Hungary attacked, they would join England to defeat them. Sir Edward concealed the existence of the treaty, and lied to Parliament when asked about it.
