I think people can make themselves believe whatever they want too. Keep your head to yourself, and if you don't believe in it, don't get sucked it!

If you want to believe in it, go ahead!

Yeah, because YouTube videos are valid and reliable sources...

I am not quite sure to be honest, I really haven't looked into that.

I think there is merit to some "groups" in history. Whether or not youtube has it right though is another story all together. Fact and Opinion are two very different things and to be honest most people don't know what they are talking about. Do I believe there are powerful and politically influential people behind the scenes that we never see, of course. Nobody smart ever shows all their cards, or players in this case. Do I believe these unseens are all part of an elitist group that is all powerful, hardly. Bavarian Illuminati in general is an interesting topic but so are the Mayans and aliens for that matter. Unfortunately most of these topics are mainly speculation until hard proof surfaces.

I'm not following--because I don't believe in the Illuminati and don't believe in circumstantial evidence and the hysteria that fuels most conspiracy theories, I shouldn't have clicked on a link titled "thoughts on the Illuminati." Why, exactly? Am I not allowed to participate in this conversation? My point was that anyone can upload a video onto YouTube. It is not a source of reliable information, and that kind of "we don't need reliable evidence to make claims about what happens in our world" is not only a foolish way to look at the world, but is actively harmful. People can waste their lives speculating about who is "pulling the strings" in the world based on fairy tales that they tell each other, or they can pay attention to the things happening in front of their face and concern themselves with real world problems. I think that more strongly than ever in the wake of all these mass shootings. There's something wrong with our world and our culture, and sitting around watching YouTube "documentaries&qu ot; on conspiracy theories only fuels more paranoia, distrust, misinformation, misunderstanding, and distracts from real world problems. I believe that conspiracy theorists live in a fantasy world where problems and solutions are elusive, because it's easier for them that way--when all the world's problems are happening behind closed doors, what can you do about it besides sit around and speculate on YouTube? It's ridiculous and quite frustrating.

I'm sure there are groups that influence things more than most will ever know, but not quite sold on the Illuminati thing.

There are no doubt influential groups - like the Masons - but the world is way too complex for any to have rule-the-world power. Most are European centric that pay scant attention to the far larger and more powerful Asian cultures and influences.

Look on the globe - Europe is not a true continent - it's just the far western portion of Asia - but the arrogant 'writers of history' needed to carve out a special place for themselves. It's the same arrogance that lead to hundreds of years of futile wars - it wasn't until the US enforced a peace on Europe that they could even remotely work together.

They often call us barbaric and unsophisticated - please - without the US you'd all be German slaves! But I digress.....

I think people just find the need to think there is a secret society like that out there. I don't think there is one, but there might be. Who knows.

I read a lot about this topic ten years ago and it really drove me paranoid. But the more I read the more obvious the antisemitic tendencies became. Illuminati stuff is very often linked with the protocols of the elders of zion which has prooven to be a fake in the 1930.
Rest is sad / horrible history.

Thank you--I was going to say also why I have a HUGE problem with Illuminati conspiracies, but I didn't know if I wanted to open that can of worms. As a Jew, I get more than a little offended that my people are often accused of being at the center of this kind of shit, and it's infuriating. Antisemitic sentiment is rampant in these kinds of conspiracy theories. It's more than a little unnerving for me to read about them and that people actually believe it.

I do not know what it is, but I have seen the word lately. Maybe I'll look it up, but for some reason it's sounding like it might scare me. LOL. Will it?

It's real, but nothing t get too damn excited over. It's more or less an extension of the Free Masons. If there was a hidden agenda, there sure are doing a shit job at making it happen.

There are all kinds of brotherhoods that exist today (Freemasons, Skull and Bones, bohemian grove and many more), so it is no stretch the illuminati might have existed in some form or another in the past, especially considering what the dark ages were like. If you think there are no secret societies with influence in the world, I think you are deluding yourself.

Paranoia will destroy ya. There are plenty of REAL reasons things are so f'ked up right now. Better to actually DO something about those than to buy into fake reasons.
