If John Lennon wanted to get the message out that the world was being controlled by the Illuminati then surely he would just announce it instead of making ambiguous songs about them.

My belief is that Lennon was shot and killed by a crackpot. And same with Dimebag Darrell, whose killer also shot and killed 3 others. I don't see any nefarious conspiracy here. Just a couple of whack jobs who killed two talented musicians.

You've caught my eye with this one. John Lennon was beloved by millions of people, and was therefore quite influential, especially amongst youth (the most powerful demographic, IMO). I've always thought that his death, while appearing 'innocent' easily could have been something more, than just some 'deranged' fan.
I'm not however sold that this song was the so called "nail" in Lennon's coffin, as he was murdered in December of 1980, and the song was released in '73.
I decided to do a little digging, and found some interesting angles on the topic.
There is an alleged dossier on John Lennon, which was maintained by the FBI, concerning his political activism, "Protest Activities and Civil Disturbances." Lennon retired from his activism, for his family in 1975, and coincidentally (or not) this file was updated until 1976.
John returned to the scene however in October of 1980, and was gunned down, two months later, in December. (Just as the Regan regime was about to kick into gear??)
Some stuff to look at

Wow wow wow, thanks OP!!!
I feel like a song by John Lennon written specifically for my generation!
It is a very good theory OP, something you may be able to tie in with the Paul conspiracies.

It's hard to tell what John had been privy to while a Beatle, but his spiritual side and love for peace and humanity should be obvious from his music, his words, and his actions.
He was a political activist who wasn't political. He was the one man who had the potential to bring something positive out of the 1960s, and actually make it both meaningful and mainstream in a conservative country.
When Ronald Reagan was elected he came out of his famous period of inactivity to become politically and musically active again.
That's when he was killed.
He said himself if he were to ever die it would not be an accident, that he was sometimes followed by unknown individual, and was set up by the police for drug possession. This is coming from a man who openly admitted doing drugs all the time and didn't hide his feelings towards them. Why would he lie about police planting some on him, when it was barely a slap on the wrist anyway? And political and religious authorities from various countries and institutions slandered and moaned and whined about him all the time. It's obvious to me at least that TPTB had a big problem with him when he was active.
If anything though we should take his death as a solidification of everything he stood for, and a reminder of our true enemy in the state and all the phoney values and rules they impose to control the masses.
John was just one man. He couldn't do it all himself anyway. He tried to get us to rise to the challenge. And there is nothing stopping us even today, except ourselves. We should take John as the example, and act accordingly.
