That's the real trick, isn't it?...Proof.
If the Illuminati/NMO/whatever actually exist, it can only do so in secrecy. Why? Simply because they're few in number & if exposed to the world
population in general, would be quickly overwhelmed.
Thus, they must maintain extemely tight secrecy for their own security: Cover ups, distractions from the media/government/corporations/religions,
elimination of evidence or the siliencing of those few who learn the truth...All designed to maintain the safety of secrecy.
Whoever *has* the real truth is either one of *them*, dead, bought off for their silence, or even residing in insane asylums...
However, *they* aren't perfect...Some clues & evidence is still capable of being found, but it's most likely to be incomplete, fragmentary, at best.
All we can really do is find what evidence we can & rely on logical deduction & (perhaps unhealthy levels of) speculation to figure it out.
For all we know, some group of fiction-writers came up with a practical joke to spread rumors about *them*...And they have colaborated an elaborate
fiction designed to keep people nervous & out of control of themselves. They've planted "historical documentation", hire a few people to create
some unrest somewhere, publish articles under psuedonyms...
If anyone learns the real truth about the prank, they have to find some way to silence them & discredit their findings in order to keep their prank
...Hey, maybe there *is* a conspiracy after all...
