Sometimes I think they believe it's their 'right' to do whatever they want to us because we (the general public) don't 'get it' like they do.

Notice the word RAND there?
A lot of movies do that.
Maybe I am a bit too paranoid but still??? Why show that?

Nnngh, really. If a global secret society consipiring to rule the world and exterminate us peasants, do you really think they'd be inserting their symbols into pop culture? That would sort of defeat the concept of a secret society, I think.

But there are a few references to the Illuminati in the movie....some subtle and some not.
The reference to Rand is in the plot. The old man that Chance befriends has the sirname Rand
and owns a huge corporation....could be a subtle reference to Rand Corp...?
Good movie though, definitely worth a watch...

It is not saying "we the people" are dumb. At least not in a way that any honestly self aware person would disagree with or find insulting.edit on 18-10-2012 by ErgoTheConclusion because: (no reason given)
