I came across this document from a trusted source, and thought I'd do a little digging. The content is certainly of interest these days with the country and world seemingly upside down.
Here is the text as I best see it:
PROOFS of the real existence and dangerous tendency of ILLUMINISM containing and abstract of the most interesting parts of what Dr. ROBISON and the ABBE BARRUEL have published on this subject; with collateral proofs and general observations, By SETH PAYSON, A. M."for they are the Spirits of devils" Rev. xvi. I4."Here nature breeds Perverse, all monstrous, all prodigious things Abominable, unutterable, and worse Than fables yet have seign'd, or fear conceiv'd" -MILTONPublished according to A8 of Congress.Charlestown:Printed by SAMUEL ETHERIDGE, for the AUTHOR. 1802
Let's start with the basics.
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines illuminism as a (1) belief in or claim to a personal enlightenment not accessible to humankind in general. and (2) capitalized: beliefs or claims viewed as forming doctrine or principles of illuminati. Also noted: the first known use of illuminism was in 1798, in the meaning of the first definition. [source]
Much to my surprise, I came across the "Official Website of the Illuminati" which seems very similar to a cult recruitment site, or similar to scientology. They even have a TV commercial which I found to be pretty creepy. I debated whether or ot to drop the video here in this post, but no. I don't want this connection, I'll let you search illuminati official dot org so they they don't get any backlinks from me.
But here's what they have in their "about us" section:
"The Illuminati is an elite organization of world leaders, business authorities, innovators, artists, and other influential members of this planet.Our coalition unites influencers of all political, religious, and geographical backgrounds to further the prosperity of the human species as a whole."
It sounds very similar to what we've thought all along, except the "prosperity of the human species as a whole" part, which, first, who talks like that? And second, they want you to believe that all the elite and powerful people want to help EVERYONE to succeed and prosper through life?! Um, no. Sounds more like a bait and switch to me.
I'm gonna get off that page. Please explore it on your own if you want. It's creeping me out. Let's move on, shall we.
When searching for the names Dr. ROBISON and the ABBE BARRUEL, I found the entire book on the subject, authored by Seth Payson. I have it in pdf format and will link to this article. (f = s many times in the book for some reason). It's interesting to note Library of Congress sticker on the back.
Page 27 states Abbe Barrel's plan:
- The Anti-Christian Conspiracy; in every form and every denomination.
- The Anti-Monarchical Conspiracy
- The Anti-Social Conspiracy; to eventually unite with the occult Lodges of Freemasons
And Chapter 4 goes into Occult Masonry. So many parallels in today's world. I highly recommend downloading this book and realizing the similarities, even if only just for entertainment. For me, it seems all too real to be entertaining, but you be the judge!
Knowledge is power!
