The Illuminati in Hollywood: Celebrities, Conspiracies, and Secret Societies in Pop Culture and the Entertainment Industry
About this deal
Simpson, David (1993). Romanticism, Nationalism, and the Revolt Against Theory. University of Chicago Press. p.88. ISBN 978-0-226-75945-6. . Rap's Illuminati talk wasn't just a one-time fad, however. The fervor died down a bit, right up until 2008, when Prodigy published an open letter he’d written in jail to URB magazine, alleging that his old rival Jay Z “promotes the lifestyle of the beast.” Hip-hop culture—the innovator of so many popular fashions, styles, and sounds—rarely sees trends with such extended lifelines. And as usual, this trend among rappers has crossed over to pop culture in a big way. He has been featured on various television shows including the History Channel's Decoded, Ancient Aliens, and America's Book of Secrets; Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Secret Societies of Hollywood on E! Channel, America Declassified on the Travel Channel, and is a frequent guest on Coast to Coast AM, The Alex Jones Show, and more.
Referencing this peculiar moment, d’Arc elaborated on precisely whom he made this deal with. “Dylan said on 60 Minutes that he sold his soul to the Chief Commander on this Earth and the world we cannot see. He seemed to be in a moment of truth and didn’t appear to be waxing poetic.”Ever since her drastic change from Disney Queen to the free-spirited songstress, Miley Cyrus has been getting Illuminati claims. Some say her tattoos of the all-seeing eye and Leonardo da Vinci’s heart are signs of Illuminati symbolism. Others were freaking out because they claim they can see her eyes change like a lizard in a previous interview with Barbara Walters. So they think she’s a tattooed lizard person. If there are Illuminati, conspiracy theorists probably aren't going to be very happy when they see how much power the group doesn't have. And, if they do exist, they may be completely different than what the conspiracy theorists have cooked up. Secret societies have been around for ages, but for one with the power to influence world events and shape history to its will? That would be extraordinary. But, it's hard to definitively say that they don't exist. In fact, you probably can't. So the only "proof" you're going to get is the kind that debunks single theories (like Reptilians), and not the existence of the group as a whole. It's an unfalsifiable theory.
Robert Anton Wilson also published Cosmic Trigger I: The Final Secret of the Illuminati in 1977, The Illuminati Papers in 1980, Masks of the Illuminati in 1981, and The Historical Illuminatus Chronicles in the 1980s and 1991. Summing-up a culture that feeds off desperation, model-actress Melyssa Ford told reporters, “If your ultimate goal is to be famous, then you’re going to do a lot to get there, like sign your name in blood on a contract with the devil.”The works of Robison and Barruel made their way to the United States and across New England. The Rev. Jedidiah Morse, an orthodox Congregational minister and geographer, was among those who delivered sermons against the Illuminati. In fact, one of the first accounts of the Illuminati to be printed in the United States was Morse's Fast Day sermon of 9 May 1798. Morse had been alerted to the publication in Europe of Robison's Proofs of a Conspiracy by a letter from the Rev. John Erskine of Edinburgh, and he read Proofs shortly after copies published in Europe arrived by ship in March of that year. Other anti-Illuminati writers, such as Timothy Dwight, soon followed in their condemnation of the imagined group of conspirators.  Weishaupt, Adam (1790).
