The Illuminati have no belief other than the sovereignty of the human species.
The Illuminati is not a church, religion, political group, or charity, but an elite collective of global influencers who work to advance the interests of the human species as a whole. Our decisions are independent of all human divisions, including religious and political differences. We operate solely for the benefit of the human species we have been charged to protect, and therefore we make no demands of our citizens regarding personal worship, morality, or belief.
Though it is not wrong to be poor, the celebration of poverty is rooted in selfishness. A person who is poor can save a life, but a person who is rich can build a hospital and save ten thousand. The poor can do little to help the poor, but the rich can help as many as they are able. If a person is rich, they have the opportunity to do good, but if they are poor they are unable to help anyone but themselves. The greater a person’s fortune, the greater their responsibility to their fellow humans. Like the Pyramid, those with the greatest power can do the greatest good for the largest number of those below them. Crowns have passed through thousands of kings and queens, each different from the previous. Like the pendulum of a clock, power swings from one side to the other in an endless passing of time. It creates a balance between two opposing forces – each side relying on the other to maintain order.
The preservation of the human species trumps everything.
Citizens who are true to the ideals of the Illuminati and who seek membership in our organization are often referred to as followers of Illuminatiam. They are free to choose the life path they wish and to follow the morals they wish, as long as their beliefs are always in the interest of the human species as a whole. Followers of Illuminatiam renounce religious, geographic, and generational differences to work as one unit with many separate parts, accepting that each part must be unique to function properly.
