I am pleased & honored to present this book to those in the world who love the truth. not an original thought, but it certainly is a way of describing the Illuminati . These quirks have given rise to conspiracy theories that the airport is a center of illuminati activity had been stripped bare—and the account books were. Read official books from the Illuminati, including the Illuminatiam Testament and the Illuminations guide with wisdom from this planet's greatest minds.
Disappointed that his scheme found no support, Knigge was immediately intrigued when Costanzo informed him that the order that he sought to create already existed. Aside from strengthening relations between their three lodges, the Illuminati seem to have gained no advantage from this manoeuvre. Elizabeth A. The path is shown for the way to success- from conception of vision, writing it down to executing it out. Frankfurt and Leipzig.
We should all set out on this path. And this first step should be towards the schoolhouse" Illuminati, 45 So, with the controversial background of the Illuminati and what ideas are actually in their book we have to pose the question, "Are there certain truths that can be considered universal or absolute? A notable aspect about every single law of success is that it doesn't require you to take sides, except to only favor the good rather than the bad in life.
As humans, even though inherently selfish and somewhat negative, when are apart of a group naturally want to boost those whom are within that group, the group's identity, which is your identity. By boosting up the group, you boost up yourself. Everyone in this world is apart of some kind of group or of a larger identity. As we know 'boosting' is done to improve, help, and make positive influence, and every law in "The Sixty-Six Laws of the Illuminati" is nothing but improving yourself and others.
Since these laws easily apply to, for example, people in groups everyone is apart of one , the laws can help anyone. In short, Your dedication to The House of Illuminati has to be at least twice that of what you would do for a klondike bar.
But then again without patient determination, the long term outcome of success won't be as much because you get out of life what you put in, and never forget House is love, House is life, just as is Shrek. I recommend this book o those whom want to constantlt become a better version of themselves while also helping improve those you care about. View all 3 comments. Feb 09, Mark rated it really liked it. Decent book. It didn't take long to read. The info it gave was good but not really in depth.
I can't verify if the author s are actually part of the Illuminati so I read this with much skepticism. It is a fairly positive book so if you are looking for mind control techniques this isn't what you want. View 1 comment. Jan 16, Race Teo Shi Ming rated it it was amazing.
The path is shown for the way to success- from conception of vision, writing it down to executing it out. As detailed a plan as possible and don't leave anything to chance. Apr 13, Adam Robinson rated it liked it. Deep but I do not agree with some things I do not like how African Americans were made an example of as if all other races are perfect.
There are riffraffs and miscrients in every race and culture around the world. The author also mentioned that its obsured how whites are crucified for using the "N" word. Well shit It is also very insulting how much African Americans are mocked in the pages of this book. Al Deep but I do not agree with some things I do not like how African Americans were made an example of as if all other races are perfect.
Also how can you compare the North Atlantic slave trade to slavery that took place in South America. Did the Illumination or did they not have anything g to do with the Great American slave trade that is a 1 million dollar question. The author also mention that African Americans need to take care of their family better and raise their children better but lets not forget about all of the things that's been institutionalized especially during the late 70's against African Americans with the sole intention of destroying the black family structure.
The Author fails to mention how much white privileged society has always prevailed and also sugar sugar coats all the evil that whites have done and are still doing. The author mentions blacks and how they are portrayed through the media as if all they are is violent and ignorant but fails to mention how the media refuses to show all the thousands of young black men and women who receive college degrees every year and become professionals in careers other than sports and entertainment.
The media refuses to show how many blacks have established successful businesses. Since whites are so privileged and so perfect why is the world so fucked up.
Jan 21, E. Michael Smith rated it really liked it. Enlightening Read The book does a very good job of assisting one to focus on positive self developement. Also very interesting is the response to Jay Z's letter to the Illuminati, which led to commentary on the current the youth of today and world affairs. Appears to be a good introduction to the world of the Illuminati.
Apr 23, Stephen Hastie rated it it was amazing. Interesting book This book has laws for living and an insight into the ways and methods of the Illuminati society. It is the one book I have found that is at all convincing when it comes to the Illuminati.
The laws give wise guidance. I would recommend this book to anyone with a genuine interest in the Illuminati. Nov 05, Ajoya Martin added it Shelves: I want to gain knowledge.

This system would correct the current imbalance in German Freemasonry, where masonic ideals of equality were preserved only in the lower three "symbolic" degrees. The various systems of higher degrees were dominated by the elite who could afford researches in alchemy and mysticism. To Weishaupt and Knigge, the proposed federation was also a vehicle to propagate Illuminism throughout German Freemasonry.
Their intention was to use their new federation, with its emphasis on the fundamental degrees, to remove all allegiance to Strict Observance, allowing the "eclectic" system of the Illuminati to take its place. The circular announcing the new federation outlined the faults of German freemasonry, that unsuitable men with money were often admitted on the basis of their wealth, that the corruption of civil society had infected the lodges.
Having advocated the de-regulation of the higher grades of the German lodges, the Illuminati now announced their own, from their "unknown Superiors". Knigge, in a letter to all the Royal York lodges, now accused that Grand Lodge of decadence.
Their Freemasonry had allegedly been corrupted by the Jesuits. Strict Observance was now attacked as a creation of the Stuarts, devoid of all moral virtue. The Zinnendorf rite of the Grand Landlodge of the Freemasons of Germany was suspect because its author was in league with the Swedes. This direct attack had the opposite effect to that intended by Weishaupt, it offended many of its readers.
The Grand Lodge of the Grand Orient of Warsaw, which controlled Freemasonry in Poland and Lithuania, was happy to participate in the federation only as far as the first three degrees. Their insistence on independence had kept them from the Strict Observance, and would now keep them from the Illuminati, whose plan to annex Freemasonry rested on their own higher degrees. By the end of January the Illuminati's masonic contingent had seven lodges. It was not only the clumsy appeal of the Illuminati that left the federation short of members.
Lodge Theodore was recently formed and did not command respect like the older lodges. Most of all, the Freemasons most likely to be attracted to the federation saw the Illuminati as an ally against the mystics and Martinists, but valued their own freedom too highly to be caught in another restrictive organisation.
Even Ditfurth, the supposed representative of the Illuminati at Wilhelmsbad, had pursued his own agenda at the convent. The non-mystical Frankfurt lodges created an "Eclectic Alliance", which was almost indistinguishable in constitution and aims from the Illuminati's federation. Far from seeing this as a threat, after some discussion the Illuminati lodges joined the new alliance.
Three Illuminati now sat on the committee charged with writing the new masonic statutes. Aside from strengthening relations between their three lodges, the Illuminati seem to have gained no advantage from this manoeuvre. Ditfurth, having found a masonic organisation that worked towards his own ambitions for Freemasonry, took little interest in the Illuminati after his adherence to the Eclectic Alliance.
In reality, the creation of the Eclectic Alliance had undermined all of the subtle plans of the Illuminati to spread their own doctrine through Freemasonry. Although their hopes of mass recruitment through Freemasonry had been frustrated, the Illuminati continued to recruit well at an individual level. In Bavaria, the succession of Charles Theodore initially led to a liberalisation of attitudes and laws, but the clergy and courtiers, guarding their own power and privilege, persuaded the weak-willed monarch to reverse his reforms, and Bavaria's repression of liberal thought returned.
This reversal led to a general resentment of the monarch and the church among the educated classes, which provided a perfect recruiting ground for the Illuminati. A number of Freemasons from Prudence lodge, disaffected by the Martinist rites of the Chevaliers Bienfaisants , joined lodge Theodore, who set themselves up in a gardened mansion which contained their library of liberal literature.
Illuminati circles in the rest of Germany expanded. While some had only modest gains, the circle in Mainz almost doubled from 31 to 61 members. The total number of verifiable members at the end of is around Weishaupt and Hertel later claimed a figure of 2, The higher figure is largely explained by the inclusion of members of masonic lodges that the Illuminati claimed to control, but it is likely that the names of all the Illuminati are not known, and the true figure lies somewhere between and 2, The importance of the order lay in its successful recruitment of the professional classes, churchmen, academics, doctors and lawyers, and its more recent acquisition of powerful benefactors.
There were notable failures. Johann Kaspar Lavater , the Swiss poet and theologian, rebuffed Knigge. He did not believe the order's humanitarian and rationalist aims were achievable by secret means. He further believed that a society's drive for members would ultimately submerge its founding ideals.
Christoph Friedrich Nicolai , the Berlin writer and bookseller, became disillusioned after joining. He found its aims chimeric, and thought that the use of Jesuit methods to achieve their aims was dangerous. He remained in the order, but took no part in recruitment. At all costs, Weishaupt wished to keep the existence of the order secret from the Rosicrucians , who already had a considerable foothold in German Freemasonry.
While clearly Protestant, the Rosicrucians were anything but anticlerical, were pro-monarchic, and held views clearly conflicting with the Illuminati vision of a rationalist state run by philosophers and scientists.
The Rosicrucians were not above promoting their own brand of mysticism with fraudulent seances.
A conflict became inevitable as the existence of the Illuminati became more evident, and as prominent Rosicrucians, and mystics with Rosicrucian sympathies, were actively recruited by Knigge and other over-enthusiastic helpers. Kolowrat was already a high ranking Rosicrucian, and the mystic Prince Charles of Hesse-Kassel had a very low opinion of the rationalist higher grades of the Illuminati.
Through this mouthpiece, the Illuminati were accused of atheism and revolutionary tendencies. In April Frederick the Great informed Charles of Hesse that the Berlin lodges had documents belonging to the Minervals or Illuminati which contained appalling material, and asked if he had heard of them.
All Berlin masons were now warned against the order, which was now accused of Socinianism , and of using the liberal writings of Voltaire and others, alongside the tolerance of Freemasonry, to undermine all religion. In November the Three Globes described the Illuminati as a masonic sect which sought to undermine Christianity and turn Freemasonry into a political system.
Their final anathema, in November , refused to recognise any Illuminati as Freemasons. In Austria, the Illuminati were blamed for anti-religious pamphlets that had recently appeared.
The Rosicrucians spied on Joseph von Sonnenfels and other suspected Illuminati, and their campaign of denunciation within Freemasonry completely shut down Illuminati recruitment in Tyrol. The Bavarian Illuminati, whose existence was already known to the Rosicrucians from an informant, were further betrayed by the reckless actions of Ferdinand Maria Baader, an Areopagite who now joined the Rosicrucians.
Shortly after his admission it was made known to his superiors that he was one of the Illuminati, and he was informed that he could not be a member of both organisations. His letter of resignation stated that the Rosicrucians did not possess secret knowledge, and ignored the truly Illuminated, specifically identifying Lodge Theodore as an Illuminati Lodge.
As the Illuminati embraced Freemasonry and expanded outside Bavaria, the council of the Areopagites was replaced by an ineffective "Council of Provincials". The Areopagites, however, remained as powerful voices within the Order, and began again to bicker with Weishaupt as soon as Knigge left Munich.
Weishaupt responded by privately slandering his perceived enemies in letters to his perceived friends. More seriously, Weishaupt succeeded in alienating Knigge. Weishaupt had ceded considerable power to Knigge in deputising him to write the ritual, power he now sought to regain. Knigge had elevated the Order from a tiny anti-clerical club to a large organisation, and felt that his work was under-acknowledged.
Weishaupt's continuing anti-clericalism clashed with Knigge's mysticism, and recruitment of mystically inclined Freemasons was a cause of friction with Weishaupt and other senior Illuminati, such as Ditfurth. Matters came to a head over the grade of Priest.
The consensus among many of the Illuminati was that the ritual was florid and ill-conceived, and the regalia puerile and expensive. Some refused to use it, others edited it.
Weishaupt demanded that Knigge rewrite the ritual. Knigge pointed out that it was already circulated, with Weishaupt's blessing, as ancient. This fell on deaf ears. Weishaupt now claimed to other Illuminati that the Priest ritual was flawed because Knigge had invented it. Offended, Knigge now threatened to tell the world how much of the Illuminati ritual he had made up. Knigge's attempt to create a convention of the Areopagites proved fruitless, as most of them trusted him even less than they trusted Weishaupt.
In July Knigge left the order by agreement, under which he returned all relevant papers, and Weishaupt published a retraction of all slanders against him. The final decline of the Illuminati was brought about by the indiscretions of their own Minervals in Bavaria, and especially in Munich.
In spite of efforts by their superiors to curb loose talk, politically dangerous boasts of power and criticism of monarchy caused the "secret" order's existence to become common knowledge, along with the names of many important members.
The presence of Illuminati in positions of power now led to some public disquiet. There were Illuminati in many civic and state governing bodies. In spite of their small number, there were claims that success in a legal dispute depended on the litigant's standing with the order. The Illuminati were blamed for several anti-religious publications then appearing in Bavaria.
Much of this criticism sprang from vindictiveness and jealousy, but it is clear that many Illuminati court officials gave preferential treatment to their brethren. In Bavaria, the energy of their two members of the Ecclesiastical Council had one of them elected treasurer. Their opposition to Jesuits resulted in the banned order losing key academic and church positions. In Ingolstadt, the Jesuit heads of department were replaced by Illuminati.
Alarmed, Charles Theodore and his government banned all secret societies including the Illuminati. Weishaupt had fled and documents and internal correspondence, seized in and , were subsequently published by the government in Between and , Augustin Barruel 's Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism and John Robison 's Proofs of a Conspiracy publicised the theory that the Illuminati had survived and represented an ongoing international conspiracy.
This included the claim that it was behind the French Revolution. Both books proved to be very popular, spurring reprints and paraphrases by others.
Their sermons were printed and the matter was followed in newspapers. Concern died down in the first decade of the s, although it revived from time to time in the Anti-Masonic movement of the s and 30s. Several recent and present-day fraternal organisations claim to be descended from the original Bavarian Illuminati and openly use the name "Illuminati". Some of these groups use a variation on the name "The Illuminati Order" in the name of their own organisations,  while others, such as the Ordo Templi Orientis , have "Illuminati" as a level within their organisation's hierarchy.
However, there is no evidence that these present-day groups have any real connection to the historic order. They have not amassed significant political power or influence, and most, rather than trying to remain secret, promote unsubstantiated links to the Bavarian Illuminati as a means of attracting membership.
The Illuminati did not survive their suppression in Bavaria; their further mischief and plottings in the work of Barruel and Robison must be thus considered as the invention of the writers. Many conspiracy theories propose that world events are being controlled and manipulated by a secret society calling itself the Illuminati. Presidents of the United States are a common target for such claims. Other theorists contend that a variety of historical events were orchestrated by the Illuminati, from the French Revolution , the Battle of Waterloo and the assassination of U.
President John F. Kennedy , to an alleged communist plot to hasten the " New World Order " by infiltrating the Hollywood film industry. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
