I was a bit curious about what The Illumanti really was, after having been told for all of my life that were the spawn of Satan, setting out with one goal: Making everyone worship the devil.
This is the actual definition.
The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”).The society’s goals were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life and abuses of state power. “The order of the day,” they wrote in their general statutes, “is to put an end to the machinations of the purveyors of injustice, to control them without dominating them.”
That sounds pretty great to me. In fact, it sounds a lot better than some of the governments we have in place now.
So why were they rejected by society? Because they fought for freedom?
Why were they cast in such an evil light? Because they didn’t think religion had a place in ruler ship? (Pretty sure we could avoided some major wars there)
So I am now a bit worried. Have I been part of the Illuminati all this time?
