Illuminati? Are they a thing?

Illuminati? Are they a thing?

Audrey Whalen, Reporter

Many have  heard the conspiracy theory that Beyonce and Jay-Z are the leaders of the Illuminati and many other celebrities are apart of the group, some may not know who the Illuminati are.

The definition for Illuminati is a global elite society that is trying to take over the world. If one were to attempt to summarize the Illuminati conspiracy, it would go something like this: The Illuminati began as a secret society under the direction of Jesuit priests. Later, a council of five men, one for each of the points on the pentagram, formed what was called “The Ancient and Illuminated Seers of Bavaria.” They were high order Luciferian Freemasons, thoroughly immersed in mysticism and Eastern mental disciplines, seeking to develop the superpowers of the mind.

Their alleged plan and purpose is world domination for their lord (who precisely this lord is varies widely). The Illuminati are alleged to be the primary motivational forces encouraging global governance, a one-world religious ethic, and centralized control of the world’s economic systems. Organizations such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the International Criminal Court are seen as tentacles of the Illuminati.

According to the Illuminati conspiracy, the Illuminati are the driving force behind efforts to brainwash the gullible masses through thought control and manipulation of beliefs, through the press, the educational curriculum, and the political leadership of the nations.

The popular conspiracy behind the Illuminati is that all the Kardashians are involved in the society and Kim’s baby names, “Chicago, North and Saint”, are the location where they meet. Some believe that the names coexist within the society, which means that the group meets in Chicago, Northwest of the city in a church called Saint James Cathedral.

Others believe the Illuminati is incharge of all the United States disasters, control celebrities minds and  cloning people. For example Britney Spears went crazy in 2006 and shaved her head.
