Proof That Thomas Jefferson was Illuminati?
"Whereas it appeareth that however certain forms of government are better calculated than others to protect individuals in the free exercise of their natural rights, and are at the same time themselves better guarded against degeneracy, yet experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of preventing this would be, to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts, which history exhibiteth, that, possessed thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be enabled to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes"

— Thomas Jefferson


When it is considered suspect, subversive or even illegal to quote one of the nation's founding fathers, that nation's foundations have already crumbled.

Re: Proof That Thomas Jefferson was Illuminati?
Ummm...use of the word 'illuminate' is not limited to the so-called illuminati. So no, it's neither proof nor evidence that Jefferson was somehow an illuminatus.

If you read enough of Jefferson's words and get an idea of what he truly believed in and stood for, you'll see that it's the polar opposite of what the 'illuminati' believe.

Oh, thank you. I must be fixating on imaginary bogeymen. Good quote though, eh?
