Yale History & President Timothy Dwight on Voltaire's anti-Christian agenda in France - American Minute with Bill Federer
Machiavelli's concept that the end justify the means, allowed those who did not believe in God's definition of good and bad to replace it with their political agenda being good and those opposing them as bad.
Dwight explained Voltaire's tactics:
"In societies of Illuminati ... the being of God was denied and ridiculed ...
The possession of property was pronounced robbery.
Chastity and natural affection were declared to be nothing more than groundless prejudices.
Adultery, assassination, poisoning, and other crimes of the like infernal nature, were taught as lawful ... provided the end was good ...
The good ends proposed by the Illuminati ... are the overthrow of religion, government, and human society, civil and domestic.
