The Illuminati! Controversial Conspiracy Facts vs Trivial Conspiracy Theories…

Please stop using the word ‘Illuminati’ to describe a bunch of people we know little or nothing about.
Yes, there are businessmen and politicians with their fingers in many pies with vested interests, for example both Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were giving orders to invade countries while they had vested interests in  a company called Halliburton which profits from rebuilding the countries they’ve bombed through construction contracts and oil contracts and the Rothschild family seems to establish a central bank in any country the USA invades. But we need a new term to define conspiracy facts that doesn’t make people turn off immediately, ‘illuminati’ and ‘shadow government’ make people turn their eyes up and poke fun at you.
Here is an example of some FACTS that can’t be denied by the skeptics. “Bunnatine Greenhouse, a civil servant with 20 years of contracting experience, had complained to Army officials on numerous occasions that Halliburton had been unlawfully receiving special treatment for work in Iraq, Kuwait and the Balkans. Criminal investigations were opened by the U.S. Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Pentagon’s inspector general.
In one of Greenhouse’s claims, she said that military auditors caught Halliburton overcharging the Pentagon for fuel deliveries into Iraq. She also complained that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s office took control of every aspect of Halliburton’s $7 billion Iraqi oil/infrastructure contract. After her testimony, Greenhouse was demoted for poor performance.[45] Greenhouse’s attorney, Michael Kohn, stated in The New York Times that “she is being demoted because of her strict adherence to procurement requirements and the Army’s preference to sidestep them when it suits their needs.”[46]” Just the tip of an iceberg on wikipedia (which is by no means infallible.)
It is not very hard to find out what the actual Illuminati were.
The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”) is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776 to oppose superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to support women’s education and gender equality. The Illuminati were outlawed along with other secret societies by the Bavarian government leadership with the encouragement of the Roman Catholic Church, and permanently disbanded in 1785.[1] In the several years following, the group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed they had regrouped and were responsible for the French Revolution.
In subsequent use, “Illuminati” refers to various organizations claiming or purported to have unsubstantiated links to the original Bavarian Illuminati or similar secret societies, and often alleged to conspire to control world affairs by masterminding events and planting agents in government and corporations to establish a New World Order and gain further political power and influence. – Wikipedia again. It’s really that easy.
Now the word ‘Illuminati’ is used to describe anyone who has unchecked power, usually with undertones of occult and/or esoteric knowledge or implying that they gained power through occult and esoteric means.
Which completely alienates anyone who doesn’t believe in the occult and esoteric (for the record, I do.) And also makes any argument abut the real shadow government, the British politicians that stand to make profits from privatising the NHS, Thatcher’s sons making arms deals, American politicians profiting from Halliburton, the Bush family oil deal ties, all the real conspiracy facts fade into the background behind the noise of conspiracy theories.
I don’t know if Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush, and Blair wear funny robes and do funny rituals. I know that Bush and Senator Kerry both refused to talk about their admitted affiliation with the Skull and Bones society when both were the only likely candidates for the Presidential election (see the news clips below cos the skeptics will think I’m just waffling.) But what I know for certain is that we have to identify the issues if we wish to solve them and one of the issues is misinformation and disinformation.
I am willing to accept if and when I am wrong. I am requesting corrections. Because the more we know and understand of what is happening now, and what has happened in the past the more likely we can and will fix the now so that our children can build a better world for our children’s children, wide awake individuals who can see the facade for what it is. I think that the war and pollution is literally the work of a stupid, selfish civilization and I expect our grandkids will look at the current political system of picking between a short list of war mongers with vested interests as backward as stupid as we see previous civilizations committing human sacrifice to Gods in the hope of better weather.

Solution? We could just use “the bastards” instead of the word Illuminati haha

Conclusion. (The real solution?)

I like the story-telling aspect. That’s what I did up there, told a new story (actually an old one and one tat resonates as ‘truth’.) Terence Mckenna said become the media. Robert Anton Wilson said something like “The illuminati is out to get me” is a losers story, a winners story is “I am the illuminati and no group out there is smarter than me and my friends.”

{Actually Robert Anton Wilson said exactly this – “paranoia is a Loser script; it defines somebody else as being in charge around here except me. I prefer to define myself and my friends as the architects of the future. If David Rockefeller has the same idea about himself and his friends, well, the future itself will decide which coalition was really on the Evolutionary Wave: the Money people or the Idea people” }

I like that. I may not have Halliburtons money or Rothschild’s political influence but I write stories and make music that changes peoples hearts and minds, opens peoples hearts and minds and it is the stories that stick that will co-create the world our childrens children will grow up in. Also I will be making more money, just not sacrificing soldiers and brown people or bankrupting nations in order to do it.

ps Yes, apparently there is really somebody called Bunnatine Greenhouse (should have been bun a ting or bun a tens. 420. It does really look like I might just quit blazing but I couldn’t let that go past, come on.)

Be love. I am sovereign. So are you. Don’t forget to love yourselves.

Everything is everything, act like ya know 😉

Senator Kerry and Ge0rge Bush as promised…

And finally a musical solution to all this confusion…

defending love with truth

  1. its all about the hard facts Kev! respect for making this page..

    An elite in political and sociological theory, is a small group of people who control a disproportionate amount of wealth or political power.

  2. It’s less about a secret conspiracy than it is just how Power operates, and has operated ever since it’s emergence… it’s both banal and horrific. If you are not part of a discussion about you by other people it can seem like a conspiracy, when in fact it’s merely gossip by people with their own agenda.

    The ‘conspiracy theorists’ tendency to inflame fear rather than rational discourse gains momentum because we are taught in school (and many believe it, of course – I did) that democratic governance is designed to work FOR the people, when in fact it never was and never has, and when that illusion is shattered it creates a fear all too easily manipulated and exploited.

    At the same time, the Power uses the same term ‘ conspiracy theorist’ as a means to undermine rational discourse on the subject of how Power operates, (by scaring off some of the people from the very subject itself, that of how Power is used) and to inflame those who subscribe to the fear based theory in ways that they defend their BELIEF reflexively, and avoid deeper rational exploration of what is happening, it’s roots etc…

    The clue to all this is the dehumanising language used both by Power and the theorists, and their believers – terms such as ‘sheeple’, or ‘humanity is a problem’ or ‘elite child eaters’ and the use of language to suggest that catasptrophe is just around the corner and if we don’t ACT NOW blah blah blah… etc etc etc

    I call them the Gloominati, who are engaging the Dorks of Farce-ness in their battle to hold onto Power.

    Unless one is willing to look at how we develop as children and attempt to understand how environment and experience alter our neurology, our thinking and our behaviour away from our natural mandate and integrate that into political studies, it’s impossible to generate alternatives that are both meaningful and effective.

    The matter must be subject to scientific rational exploration as well as a grounding in empathy.
