The Illuminoids: Secret Societies and Political Paranoia

Neal Wilgus

Incredibly dense condensation of the gamut of conspiracy theories circa 1978 (that means no UFO/Area 51/secret bases). Inspired by Robert Anton Wilson’s Illuminatus! trilogy, The Illuminoids takes the Illuminati out of the fictional context and back into the realm of speculative history, this time without the stridency of the “true believer.” Part One is an entertaining and fact-filled recounting of the origins of the Bavarian Illuminati covering Adam Weishaupt, the Freemasons, Cagliostro, the French Enlightenment, the Founding Fathers, and on up to those busy bankers the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and Warburgs. Part Two is an equally dense chronology which runs from the birth of Voltaire and the founding of the Bank of England all the way up to the Gemstone File, the Bilderberg Conference, the SLA, and the attempted assassination of Larry Flynt. Part Three covers source materials, many possibly out-of-date. SS
