After playing the computer game "Deus Ex" and doing some research on my own, I've come to ask on some opinion....
My theory on the Illuminati is as follows: founded in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt and others, it was an organization founded to keep international powers
in check. After several centuries, the Illuminati has expanded, and now is comprised of mostly wealthy bankers, corporate businessmen, and policians
who utilize their powers to influence world government. Using economics and political fortitude, the Illuminati now work behind the scenes, in the
shadows of secrecy, and manipulate economies, events, and world progress.
whether or not what I said above is true or not, has anyone considered the possibility that the Illuminati is a necessary secrecy? A compassionate
conspiracy? A group of the wise, the "enlightened" who use banking and politics to keep world governments in check? I've always read the typical
"blah blah, the Illuminati were founded by Adam Weishaupt, collaberated with the Freemasons (who apparently now are a community service
organization?) worship satan, hate minorities, and want to take over the world."
That description is hard for me to believe. Why would a group of rich businessmen want to take over the world and worship Satan?
I believe the Illuminati aren't that- they're the "invisible hand" that guides the entire world from the shadows of secrecy slowly and
deliberately to promote peace, economic prosperity, and most of all, ORDER in the world. After all, why would a group of such "enlightened,"
obviously well-educated and successful businesspeople and politicians, want to devote much of their time (and funding) into an organization that just
wants to promote tyranny, hate, chaos, and corruption? There are better things to do with their time and money, I'm sure.....
Your thoughts? Has anyone actually considered that if the Illuminati actually existed or exists, what their TRUE intentions would be? I'm sure they
don't meet in secret to worship Satan and plan the overthrow of world governments....it doesn't sound like human nature to utilize resources and
manpower to take such a far-fetched (like taking over the world would occurr in their own lifetime, anyways) and ethically disruptive course of
