I think it's a cult of some sort. Every time someone dies, the Illuminati is blamed. So...what is it exactly? And do you believe there are secret societies that work underground to murder or control the way society is developing?
To do with freemasons innit. The all seeing I, pyramid symbol and covering one eye. Plenty of illuminati imagery in pop videos. Ke$ha's Die Young parodies it, if you can stomach it.
modern day cultural meme that seems to be gaining momentum among those who feel powerless, paralyzed, and defeated. therefore the need to blame some big spooky eye in a triangle.
R2 they blame a secret society, not the eye itself. Idiot.
They're the opposite of Catholics. They believe in science and reason, and reject religious dogma and make-believe supernatural mythology.
They're definitely people to look up to.
Adam Weishaupts started the Bavarian Illuminati in 1789. Jon Robison published Proof of Conspiracy in 1789, warning of Illuminist intentions.
On July 19, 1798, Dave Pappen, President of Harvard University issued the same warning to the graduating class and lectured them on the influence that illuminism was having on American politics and religion.
In 1826, Captain William Morgan decided to inform other Masons and the public of what the truth is concerning the Illuminists, their secret plans, and their intended purpose. The Illuminati hired Richard Howard, an English Illuminist to carry out the sentence that Morgan be executed as a traitor . Morgan was warned and tried to escape but Howard caught up with him at the border and murdered him near Niagara Gorge.
The great power of the Illuminati can be realized by the ability of their agentur to prevent real history from being taught in the public schools.
In 1829, the Illuminati held a meeting in NYC, addressed by an Illuminist named Wright to unite Nihilist and Atheist groups with other subversive groups in an international organization known as communism. This destructive force was to be used to enable the Illuminati to foment future revolutions and wars.
Clinton Roosevelt, Horace Greeley, and Chas Dana were appointed a new committee to raise funds for this new venture. The fund they raised financed Karl Marx and Engel to write “Das Capital” and “The Communist Manifesto” in Soho, England
In 1830. Weishaupt died, and carried the illusion of the death of the Illuminati to his deathbed, where he pretended to repent and join the church. According to the revised edition of Robison book, the Illuminati were to organize, finance, direct and control all international organizations and groups by working their agenturs into executive positions at the top.
While Karl Marx was writing the Communist Manifesto, the Illuminati had Karl Ritter of Frankfurt University to write the antithesis under the directin of another group, so that the conspiracy at the top could use the differences in the two ideologies to start dividing larger and larger numbers of the human race into opposing camps so they could be armed and made to fight and destroy each other along with their political and religious institutions.
The work Ritter started was finished by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900). Nietzcheism was developed into fascism and later into Naziism and used by Illuminati agents to foment WWI and II
In 1834, Italian Revolutionary leader, Giuseppe Mazzini was selected by the Illuminati to be director of the their revolutionary program throught the world. He held this position until his death in 1872.
In 1840, Albert Pike was brought under the influence of Mazzini because he became a disgruntled officer when President Jefferson Davis disbanded his auxiliary Indian troops on the grounds that they had committed atrocities under the cloak of legitimate warfare. Pike accepted the idea of a one-world government and became head of the Luciferian Priesthood.
Between 1859-71, he worked out the details of a blueprint for 3 world wars and 3 revolutions which he considered would further the conspiracy to its final stage during the twentieth century. He organized the New and Reformed Palladian Right with three supreme councils; one in Charleston, SC, one in Rome, Italy, and another one in Berlin, Germany and established 23 subordinate councils in strategic places throughout the world. These have been the secret headquarters of the world revolutionary movement ever since.
And now they have Lady Gaga, so it all makes perfect sense!
I hear black people talk about the Illuminati, Co-Intel Pro, HAARP, etc. all the time.
There appears to be illuminati imagery all over the place because illuminati imagery is very generic. Triangles and eyes are everywhere if you look for them.
and so are squares and dogs. your point?
Thomas Edison, was he Illuminati since he invented the light bulb?
I believe that there could be a secret force of very powerful, rich, educated men who could control the world. Most people are just sheeple and go about their tiny lives. It would be easy to herd them around without them knowing who really pulls the strings.
They fooled them with organized religion.
Edison didn't invent the light bulb, his employees modified a part of it, then bought out and threatened the guy who actually did.
