    Default Synarchy

    Great word:

    Rule by a secret elite

    Some conspiracy theorists (especially in the French-speaking and Spanish-speaking world) use the word synarchy to describe a shadow government or deep state, a form of government where political power effectively rests with a secret elite, in contrast to an "oligarchy" where the elite is or could be known by the public.[5]

    I first though synarchy would have a meaning similar to communism, because it literally means "joint rule" or "common rule." This shows how arbitrary the interpretation of the literal meaning of all the -acies and -isms can be. Capitalism, for example, derives from the word "caput," meaning "head," "life," or "main thing." All good things in and of themselves. Today we often describe the current system as capitalism, when in a scientific sense capitalism is defined as a) private property and b) free market, two things that are actually heavily skewed to the benefit of a small ruling elite, so that term isn't very accurate for the current system.

    I can't remember if it was exactly St-Yves, but I'm pretty sure there was someone in 19th century France who either used the name Synarchy or just the idea, and made the first baby step towards what we would call One World Government. Like a precursor to the Fabians and League of Nations. I can't quite remember what I'm talking about, but it seems like there was something about Synarchy and some kind of structure began, which the rest of that stuff stood on top of. Maybe it was just the book, or maybe someone else can remember what happened.

    In looking at St. Yves's ideas, he is wrong in a certain way. Monarchy in the medieval east was in fact regulated by oracles and the like, but, there isn't anything secret about it. Many of them are still there doing it.

    I’d remembered something similar about Roger Bacon in the 1200’s, some kind of illuminist movement they were discussing, can’t remember the details. Typed in “Synarchy Roger Bacon” into google and found this little beauty...

    Synarchy - Movement of Empire PDF

    Quote This book is dedicated to the LaRouche Youth Movement (LYM) worldwide, and particularly to the French LYM, who deserve to know the truth about French history and world affairs. Previous generations of French citizens had settled their accounts with their immediate past history by either going to war, or by getting involved into absurd coups d'Etat, however, they never knew why they were doing so. My generation of Bohemian Bourgeois (BoBos) has not done that; it didn't care to do anything for history, nor for the future generations. It was only interested in lying and in taking care of "Me, Me, Me!" The problem that the youth of today are face with is that the truth about the French Revolution, about Napoleon Bonaparte, about the Synarchy, about the destruction of the Third Republic, or about Vichy fascism has never been told. So, either the truth comes out now, and finally exorcises the French population as a whole, once and forever, or else the French nation is doomed to repeat the same mistakes of the past, again and again.
    Nothing to do with Roger Bacon but it does draw a lot from French intelligentsia.

    According to LaRouche, they place most of the blame with the Venetians, and trace it forward through history.

    They are pretty factual but are a pro-Christian anti-Communist political party.

    One thing that appears to be true is that Venice always hated France from the beginning. France is too strongly Catholic, therefor Jesuit influenced. Venice parasitically migrated through Belgium and Netherlands into England, at which point the stuff in the red-marked text hit France.

    If it says anything much different from Vipers of Venice, it would be a bit surprising. It does make Synarchy sound about as big as any French state-ness. The important thing is how we are finding that influence has shifted from King's/Queen's/God's Empire to a private consortium that is not itself the state, yet becomes able to use the state like a dictator. On an international scale as an organized business. This is a new thing, right, since the Jesuit one is a church which ransacked everything a long time ago. I might not personally agree with everything LYM would perhaps say, but, something was achieved in the century or so leading up to Synarchy on a level that had never really been done and is fairly continuous through today, in terms particularly of governments kneeling to banks rather than nobility and popes. A quick related search says that Napoleon handed France to the bank, and that Synarchist was a term able to be used by an American in the 1920s to describe European Fascists and that the current E. U. stems from them. At the time, the pope was pretty keen on the Germans. And so for example, the Bank of England had the Czech gold, which they gave to the Nazis. So you can pretty much pinpoint a new kind of "international business" in power over governments, culminating in the Bank of International Settlements.

    Default Re: Synarchy

    Actually, just playing with the links starts to explain a lot.

    St-Yves wrote about Synarchy but, it is unclear what else he may have done in that direction. He was a prominent occultist. During these times, public entertainment had gone from palm reading and Tarot to attempts to contact the dead. More or less, by popular demand, mediumship was pretty common.

    One of St-Yves's main personal followers was Papus and if you look at him, you can see two things. Most of the various magical lodges that are appearing are some kind of "revival" or some kind of misleading claim like Templar Masonry. So at this point, at least to me, these have become strands of occultism that I find no use in. Papus, correspondingly, was repelled by Eastern occultism. So at least mentally, there's a complete split. Those are the branches that grew into the Thule Society, P2, and the like. Not ours.

    However the Russian problem is something like a standoff between Papus and Rasputin.

    Papus became a physician to the Tsar and "seems to have served the Tsar and Tsarina in what was essentially the capacity of a mediumistic spiritual advisor, he was later curiously concerned about their heavy reliance on occultism to assist them in deciding questions of government. During their later correspondence, he warned them a number of times against the influence of Rasputin."

    Later, "In October 1901 Encausse collaborated with Jean Carrère in producing a series of articles in the Echo de Paris under the pseudonym Niet ("no" in Russian). In the articles Sergei Witte and Pyotr Rachkovsky were attacked, and it was suggested that there was a sinister financial syndicate trying to disrupt the Franco-Russian alliance. Encausse and Carrère predicted that this syndicate was a Jewish conspiracy..."

    This was already true because they had already committed the world's first suicide bombing against the previous Tsar.

    However, Sergei Witte was HPB's cousin and perhaps the main hand in starting modern Russia. His policies seem generally reformist, moving towards popular votes and limiting the Tsar's power, state monopoly on the railroad, foreign competition driven away by tariffs, put the Ruble on the gold standard. When the gold standard was used, it led to foreign investment coming in. There was a dispute over land reform, and that led to him being accused of conspiracy. Nothing more ever came out of it.

    Mindless violence sprawled across Russia, eventually Witte tried to get money from the French Rothschild Bank. They told him he would have to secure the Jews. He did not, and so did not put the Russian state under a Rothschild bank at that time.

    He, perhaps, had friendlier relations with some other member of international Jewry, but can be shown to have failed with the "big one". He was accused of conspiracy by someone whose politics we don't exactly know, but whose Synarchist mentor inspired fascists all the way to Mexico. Papus was correct in some way that the tentacle was grabbing at Russia but it is hard to find Witte as the culprit.

    Coincidentally (or maybe not and it is floating about in the collective consciousness), Terry Boardman has an article discussing Brexit and the European Union, tracing the current situation back to its various proponents to their influences and influencers - including Synarchy.

    http://threeman.org/?p=2783

    This article is the second of a three part article. It is long and rather winding and views the world from an anthroposophical (Rudolf Steiner) perspective.

    Here are the relevant paragraphs:
    Quote ...
    Synarchy and Saint-Yves d’Alveydre

    Those seeking to win back their influence over European civilisation were, for example, aristocrats who had lost out when empires crashed at the end of the First World War, people who felt that after the catastrophe of the First World War Europe could only be saved by returning to the sources of European tradition and hierarchy, and those sources are very deep; they reach back to the medieval Papacy, to the Roman Empire and far beyond. Such authoritarian ideas inspired aristocratic and right-wing circles across the continent in the interwar period, appealing also to men in the clergy, the military and industry. These ‘new’ authoritarian, totalitarian ideas bonded modern technocratic and managerial systems-based thinking with concepts of authority, hierarchy and collective unity, often allied to, or collaborating with, the Roman Catholic Church (in Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Poland, France, Belgium and also Mexico). Those with such ideas regarded the bourgeois, middle-class individualism and parliamentarianism of the 19th century as decadent, divisive and destructive of social order and true culture. To what they held to be the anarchy of democracy that had been bred in Freemasonic England and unleashed by the French and Russian Revolutions, they counterposed a body of ideas that can be called ‘synarchy’.



    Synarchy was a ‘philosophy’ first proclaimed by a man who looked back, even further than de Maistre, to a very ancient Asian theocracy – the French occultist Alexandre Saint-Yves d’Alveydre (1842-1909)(left) . He had studied the writings of [Joseph] de Maistre in his youth, as well as those of the Christian theosophist Fabre d’Olivet (1767-1825) and had received a kind of initiation from a Central Asian mystic, Haji Sharif, in 1885. Saint-Yves claimed that Synarchy, which he held to be the polar opposite of the anarchy of the French Revolution, had been the harmonious form of social order practised thousands of years ago in central Asia and which was needed to restore order to the chaotic modern age. It saw a ‘natural hierarchy’ in everything, and society was intended to be organised on this principle at all levels. Saint-Yves introduced the concept of synarchy in his very first book Keys to the East (Clefs de l’Orient) (1877), along with his advocacy of a politically united Europe. In the 1880s and 1890s St.Yves had some success in getting a hearing for his ideas in elite business and political circles in France, but with the new century his influence faded and he died in 1909. His ideas, however, were recognised by another French occultist, his friend Papus (real name Gérard Encausse, 1865-1916)(above right), as his ‘intellectual master’. A teacher of an irregular form of the occult-philosophical stream known as ‘Martinism’8, Papus was identified by Steiner as a dangerous and unethical occultist9, and he played a not insignificant role in the preparations for the First World War (through his involvement in helping to cement the Franco-Russian Alliance against Germany). After Papus’ death in 1916, his followers split into two groups, one of which (the Martinist and Synarchic Order) eventually developed an occult political movement based on the traditionalist, authoritarian and hierarchical concepts first elaborated by Saint-Yves d’Alveydre, including his advocacy of a United States of Europe. These people sought to infiltrate their ideas into the political elites of France and other European countries and take over the control of government with the idea of first France, then Europe, and then the world. Synarchist ideas permeated the francophone world in the 1930s and 40s. Many highly-placed industrialists, businessmen, intellectuals, military officers and civil servants, especially of the younger generation, inclined to Synarchy.

    Two of the most active Synarchists were the businessman Jean Coutrot and the esotericist Vivian Postel du Mas and his partner Jeanne Canudo, who was active in setting up youth groups to mobilise for a United States of Europe and who had her own wide network of contacts in the French elite. Coutrot wrote a manifesto called the Synarchist Pact, which had 13 points and 598 propositions and argued for “a revolution from above”. The goal was world Synarchy under an elite-ruled world government, the Major Society of Nations, and under this would be five continental or regional federations, one of which would be ‘Eurafrica’, beginning with a ‘Union Européenne’ (European Union). The Synarchists were no mere bunch of student radicals; they had connections, allies, and sympathisers throughout urban French society spanning both Left and Right, socialists, monarchists and fascists. Postel du Mas and Canudo had links to members of the elite such as Jean Monnet and Coudenhove-Kalergi (see below) who were deeply committed to a united European state. First-hand corroboration of their activities can be found in the autobiography of the publisher Maurice Girodias, who was a member of the Postel du Mas group in the 1930s.10

    While some Syncharchists were nationalistic esotericists, most were very Catholic, extremely anti-Communist and they were also modernist technocrats in industrial and business affairs, very much aware of the challenge of American scientific managerialism. As such modernists, conscious of the great industrial projects in the USA and USSR, they were drawn to grand economic plans (le ‘planisme’) and technocratic dirigisme of the kind that was generally fashionable in the period 1920-1970 and which would become so evident in France post-1945 and in the EU project in the second half of the 20th century. Jean Monnet was such a man. From these circles came at least three attempted coups in France between 1928 and 1937 and a number of vicious terrorist groups allied to the Synarchists, the most notorious of which was the monarchist and traditionalist Secret Committee of Revolutionary Action, known as La Cagoule (The Hood, 1935-41) with which the young François Mitterand was associated, though probably not an actual member, before his ‘conversion’ to socialism during the war. Elite Synarchist circles collaborated tightly with the Nazi collaborationist Vichy French regime during the Second World War. Indeed, the Vichy regime was suffused with Synarchists.
