The Illuminati was broken up by the Bavarian government over 200 years ago, but many believe that the organization survived and is even today operating behind the scenes everywhere from the conspiracy to establish a world government to planning the terrible events of ...more

There was some good information here. I mostly agree with a lot of what Robison says but don't like the way he says it. I have to admit that there is a huge cultural gap between his time and now.

This book is very very interesting reading..
Very interesting subject matter for the time in which it was written.
It shows how far back the intent to destroy Liberty in America began.
It wasn't 20 years after the constitution was ratified that the Progressives began conspiring to infiltrate U.S. Government and destroy out newly found liberty.

When people read this book, they learn about the concept of “sta bene”, become obsessed, and try to use it. They, inevitably, try to sta bene people they could impress others by having done so.
The sta bene was used by Freemasons to “dismiss” prospective ones who would no longer advance rank but would still be socially useful and recognized, while in secret, they wouldn’t advance anymore among the freemason rank. They wouldn’t become leaders of any lodge.
These days, hipsters and people who,

During the final year of the French Revolution, Scottish scholar John Robison published his research on the Illuminati secret society, and the role played by its member intellectuals, publishers, and idle nobles. Early chapters of the book trace the spread of the Illuminati via Masonic lodges throughout Germany and France from it's launch in Bavaria by University of Ingolstadt professor Adam Weishaupt. Robison is concerned that the corrupted European form of Masonry must not infect traditional ...more

“But all the evils of society do not spring from the discontents and the vices of the poor. The rich come in for a large and a conspicuous share. They frequently abuse their advantages. Pride and haughty behaviour on their part rankle in the breasts, and affect the tempers of their inferiors, already fretted by the hardships of their own condition. The rich also are luxurious; and are often needy. Grasping at every mean of gratification, they are inattentive to the rights of inferiors whom they despise, and, despising, oppress. Perhaps their own superiority has been acquired by injustice. Perhaps most sovereignties have been acquired by oppression. Princes and Rulers are but men; as such, they abuse many of their greatest blessings.” 0 likes
