Yeah, i agree


A lot of good information has been presented, with the help of boncho.

I like the sources you are referencing. As i stated, i could have done better in my thread, i just didn't have the time, but wanted to give run down on the "real" Illuminati. I read somewhere that the Illuminati had a hand in the French Revolution...i can't remember where though.

The real problem comes from our misuse of the word.

"Illuminati" when used as a proper noun in historical context, refers to a specific event/group from over 300 years ago.

However in colloquial usage, our modern terminology of "Illuminati" typically refers to anyone in a position of power with insider knowledge who uses it for their own advantage. It is also assumed they consort and plot with other like minded and well positioned individuals, etc etc.

I personally use the terminology "Illuminati" in a generalized sense, referring vaguely to anyone "in the know" that uses "their power to benefit themselves or their group".

Many people get frustrated and confused when they mistakenly assume "Illuminati" is an actual group, when that is not quite the case.

The reality is that the terminology can be applied in a general sense to anyone within entire hosts of groups as long as the basic criteria are met and fulfilled.

Regardless of if the intent is there or not, there are subliminal messages in all music videos and movies, just like there are in any commercial or ads. It's all Freudian, and it's meant to make you feel a certain way without realizing their intent. You can deny the source (Illuminati or whoever), but you can deny the effects. These movies and music shape our minds whether you realize it or not.

None of these people shoulder the responsibility of their own problems? Why not? Why isn't it their fault?

First thing you can do to stop being a "sheep" is stop thinking and acting like one. Why does some secret cabal have to have complete control over your life, why can't you just think for yourselves?


Okay, now I have a problem with your arrogance! I was in a forum earlier Above Top Secret this was about people who want to know what they are eating in reguards to GMO's being labeled. Why are you now on this topic, saying that people who are sick or dieing that they haven't taken responsiblity for their life, while on the above topic I linked, you were against people who wanted to know what they were buying to put into their body????

Isn't this site about denying ignorance??? This topic is about the Illuminati Delusion is it not? But yet by your own posts, you actually have proven to me that maybe there is one, by your conflicting arguements!

You say "Stop being a sheep!", "Think for yourself!" but yet you come down on those who do try to eat healthy and think for themselves, while sitting on your soapbox in this forum?

Sorry, your words are meaningless to me!

Well this seems a good place to link my post depicting Katy Perry's newest video.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Illuminati or not, there seems to be a general mass mind manipulation going on to dumb us down and takes us away our freedom of thinking.

Also, I do believe in satanist and that they love to "talk" about it, especially in pop music, without us even knowing and they get a kick from it.

As can be seen, they were much like the Freemasons. This being said though, the Freemasons, i believe, are in no way involved in a plot to take over the world or brainwash people.

Sure, i see MTV and think "What happened since the days of Guns N' Roses?" But i don't think one secret society in particular is controlling the population.



How you ever seen Canadian MTV? MTV Canada has rented their studio space from a Freemason Temple! Their symbol (compass and square) is hidden in plain sight right on the brick wall behind the hosts! Start connecting the dots, people.



Here's a clearer image



A Freemason owned organization (MTV/MTVC) recording its brainwashing-puke-dribbled scripts in their own Temple. Well that would sure save on some bottom-line costs.

additional note: I know your frustration and main point in the OP was about the overuse or the misuse of the term/word "illuminati". I cannot stress enough, however, that this group that you say disbanded centuries ago is probably on the winning side of whoever wrote history. It's quite obvious that they rewrote history, leaving them out, to best suit their goals of achieving global control.

No wonder I can't get a record contract while singing lyrics against the elites and corruption!


And people tell me I should send big record companies my demo, yeah right.
I don't want to be part of their little circus for sheeps.

I don't know why people enjoy posting inflammatory remarks about their not being an illuminati.

--Sigh--

Obviously, there is some reason people believe this is so.

And for those who have done the research (watch the new and free documentary THRIVE), for those who have followed the money--your trite little remark is frustrating.

Prove to me there isn't a cabal that hopes to create a one world government.

It's pretty much common knowledge these days. Heck, TPTB come right out and say the word on a daily basis. There is a Youtube video that has a montage about it.

I'm not going to post you the links. You haven't done the research before you posted this, and I'm not going to waste another moment on you.

Cheers.

My cousin, same age as me, is now suffering with multiple medical problems and has gone up to a size 12, 4 years ago she was fit and a size 6. What happened to her? COCA COLA and CRISPS.

My mom, 20 years ago was the *Belle od Belfast City*.. Now? She has medical problems and a bad addiction to prescription drugs.

EVERYWHERE WE LOOK the sheeple are RIDDLED with problems.

The question to ask, is, who is causing it??

The secret shadow elite, and the "illuminati" is just another name for them, there are endless amounts of secret societies, and bloodlines that create these problems.

First thing you can do to stop being a "sheep" is stop thinking and acting like one. Why does some secret cabal have to have complete control over your life, why can't you just think for yourselves?

Like everyone getting cancer, autoimmune disorders and so on?? I am sure they can just blame themselves eh?? Fact is that the human population is getting both sicker and dumber. You cant blame diet or increased lifespan when even kids today are getting cancer. More and more people are also getting lung cancer, skin cancer even though they do not smoke and now apply sun lotion and stay more out of the sun. Why does this happen?? Even here in Norway where UV never goes above 5 in summer we are for example on top when it comes to skin cancer. Why was this not the case decades ago? Lifestyle is only a small part of the reason.

And who the heck cares if they go under the name illuminati, bilderberger, freemason and so on. These days when people say those words they usually mean the ELITE anyways, which consists of billionaires, financial elite, big banks and probably the political elite.

Haha, I love threads like this.

Aww, you're tired of hearing that the Illuminati control things? Tired of seeing them everywhere, and people saying there is something to that? Awww, sorry for the inconvenience, and TRUTH. Sorry you can't handle the truth, but that is what it is, deal with it, accept it. They are real, they control everything, (because they own everything, they are the elites) and yes of course they control the music industry, when one STUDIES the music industry and all of the symbolism, it is EASY to come to this conclusion. The ones who still deny after close study, are just in denial and not thinking logically. Cognitive dissonance.

This is equivalent to people saying, "there's no evidence for 9/11 being an inside job show me."

Dumb. Please, there are mountains of evidence, and you can utilize the search option here to find some threads on it, no one is going to waste their time on people like you who are going to just deny it anyway.

The beautiful thing is there is an awakening taking place, an awakening to these monsters who are plotting the new world order, and we see the darkness and evil that has overrun our system, it is them. Please join us, and stop being part of the problem.

Just a quick rant.

I get a little tired with all the talk of their being some illuminati that sends it's subliminal messages to us through music videos and holloywood movies, a faceless group controlling every entity of our lives.

To me it just seems like an easy bogey man to place all of the worlds problems onto. It's a cop out, because there is no real evidence for an illuminati. If you have some, please feel free to contribute.

I understand there was the bavarian illuminati, but I don't believe these are the Illuminati that people refer to today. I also understand therre are secret societies and clubs for rich and powerful people who do control a lot of wealth and power. My argument is that there is not one big conspiracy going on controlled by an all powerful illuminati.

The Illuminati has become part of pop culture with books like Dan Browns da vinci code, the rise in popularity of conspiracy theories, it all feeds itself into the mainstream and people start thinking it's illuminatti symbology rather than cultures adopting the Illuminati meme.

Sorry for that incoherent rant, just wanted to get it off my chest.
edit on 22-6-2012 by woodwardjnr because: (no reason given)



Why not go and rant this on your Facebook wall or something? Why would you come to a CONSPIRACY SITE and declare you are miffed by all the Illuminati chatter? Honestly? Not trying to be an ass. I am really curious.

Has ATS been advertising on CNN or something over the last year? This is getting ridiculous. Don't get me wrong i could care less about the "purity" of the site.. i just find it extremely bizarre.. the number of people here who seem to be here by accident and don't know they don't have to participate. Instead they attempt to eek out there own little conspiracy free zone hahah..

Mods, can we add a forum for these poor souls? Like a "Conspiracy theories are Fake Club" forum? And then we can move all these posts.. and there seems to be a ton of them.. into there own little spot? I'm thinking it would be extremely popular.

Because evil has traditionally been focused on helping people? Who is the nutter?

yes great evil exists in the world. Would you like some historical references? Really.. it's no trouble.

The very theories suggest that people are completely powerless in their own right. It shows an extremely limited understanding of the world and also a limited understanding of issues surrounding politics, business and the like. They want to believe there are groups of nefarious men sitting in a room somewhere plotting out the end of mankind.

For what purpose?

How?

Why?

Who?

Those things are never revealed. Simply an enemy character out of a cartoon show. A testament to how brainwashed some people can really be...



Do people conspire to become movie stars or is it all a conspiracy?

Do people conspire to become the best athletes in the world?

Do people conspire to win scientific accolades?

Do people conspire to cheat on their spouse? Business partners?

Do people conspire to become leaders in business? Politics?

Do people conspire to create child pornography rings? Sex slave rings? Fraud schemes?

Which of the things that are done, that require LOTS of planning, effort, discipline would you say are done in secret? Good things or bad things? Do professional sports teams share training plans and strategy with each other?

It's not even a conspiracy that people ARE plotting evil and terrible things that effect your daily life. Absolutely guaranteed. Attacking people that are interested in working against these things or even simply uncovering it for their own selfish needs reveals an aggressive resistance to a basic truth.

Do you seriously believe people become leaders in business, sports, politics by accident or is there some "plotting" involved? Do you honestly believe you are aware of everything and everyone involved at the top of their game? Do you know what your favorite scientist ate this morning? Who he spoke to? What book he just finished? Is it a conspiracy? It could end up being one if there is some negative effect for anyone somewhere down the line.

Yes evil people exist. Evil people in positions of power who's power/decisions effect your life do exist. They are only boogie men if you are too afraid or lazy to admit they exist. They exist. The one's out front are on your TV everyday.

You think you can walk up to the whitehouse and have a talk with Obama and tell him he should really take a look at his orders in Libya that caused the deaths of 100k ++? No? Why not? Conspiracy? You aren't allowed. You aren't supposed to be involved. You aren't intended to know things that could potentially disrupt the planning, scheming and conspiracy of people who are at the top of their game.

Illuminati is the name of those evil people who are doing exactly what you claim doesn't exist. Just because you personally have NO idea WHY they would be doing it doesn't mean they aren't.

Would you have guessed someone would plan and conspire to kill 100's of thousands of Jews in such a systematic way? Were the reasons WHY obvious from the start? I mean the reasons WHY the primary figures involved truly believed it necessary to put the work in that was required to be put in to pull it off?
