Ever heard of ‘The Illuminati’?
Well, either way, you’re in for one hell of an adventure because this article is, of not in honour, then, at least, in acknowledgement of the establishment and the major conspiracy theories surrounding this one of the most fascination and sinister organisations in the history of mankind.
The Bavarian Illuminati, established on May 1, 1776, was revolutionary in origin. It sought to overthrow the political and social power of the Roman Catholic Church, in favour of instituting Reason and Logic as principles to govern the world and educate humankind. The emphasis that the Illuminati placed on freedom of thought and expression was very appealing to a lot of people, even the aristocrats. However, when its aims became known to the governing authorities, surprise! surprise! It was crushed by the rulers of several countries. By 1788, through the use of aggressive legislation and criminal charges, the Bavarian Illuminati was apparently dissipated and destroyed by the government.
Since the tentacles of Illuminism had the time to spread way beyond the confines of Bavaria to the masses across Europe, it is widely believed that the Illuminati was never destroyed. It simply went underground.
A year after the supposed dissipation, an important event proved that Illuminism was alive and potent than ever – The French Revolution.
The Secret Society is often credited (or blamed) for influencing the French Revolution. The violent overthrow of the French Monarchy in 1789 symbolises to many the victory of Illuminism over the traditional institutions of the time. The adoption of The Declaration of Human Rights officially recorded Illuminist values into the core of the French government and it even contains several occult symbols referring to the Secret Society, one of them being The All Seeing Eye.
If you think this is enamouring, then keep reading because the Illuminati is basically an amalgamation of 241 years of such conspiracy theories. The Society is frequently blamed for major historical events, such as Napoleon’s Fall at Waterloo, a handful of American Revolutions, and even the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Well, the Secret Society has been incredibly busy.
The assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, has probably sparked more conspiracy theories than any other event in history. It is widely believed that he was previously working for the Illuminati but when he began to resist, the Society orchestrated his assassination as a lesson for future Presidents to not go against their will.
Speaking of assassinations, it may also interest you to know that many believe that the Illuminati was behind the assassinations of Indira Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi, and even, Lal Bahadur Shastri, the second Prime Minister of India.
Now, we all know about the 9/11 attack, don’t we? Nearly 3000 people were killed in what is certainly the worst terrorist attack on the American soil. As you’ve probably already guessed, not everyone around the world believes that it was Al Qaeda that carried out the attack. Conspiracy theorists claim that the Illuminati carried out the attack the planning of which was, apparently, in the making since 1953! Gosh, that’s a lot of planning, isn’t it?
The Illuminati and its members are believed to be especially influential in the entertainment industry and they supposedly hid the clues about the attack in movies and shows. Some of these clues are :-
So, all the clues were right there in front of our freaking faces all along, but we were just too blind to see them!
You’ll see that the story of the Illuminati has been repressed or revealed, debunked or exposed, ridiculed or exaggerated, countless of times over the centuries, if you’ll read more about it. It’s a very vast, layered and fascinating subject, but for now, this is all. Do you believe that there truly is a secret society that is controlling the world events? Let us know!
