With all of the election hoopla these last two weeks, I can’t help but list a book that I first read during Clinton’s run to office. It’s called the Illuminati and for the first time, my eyes were opened to the Iluminati conspiracy as well as the Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission and other governmental and non-governmental groups and agencies of which many are skeptical. Say what you will, but there are many people who believe that world events, politics and economics are controlled by a powerful group of the few and privileged. As for me, I find it pretty complicated and sometimes fanciful.
This was an entertaining novel for me but one that really made me more aware of something potentially more deeper and sinister than we ever see or appreciate. The Illuminati is a pretty well paced book set in the year 2015 and sees the ultrasecretive group managing to get one of its own into the White House. Weaving a new economic system into the mix, Burkett throws readers into what feels like a real-life, modern-day scenario. By the end, you’re convinced that something more than mere politics is at work in the society in which we live today.
When you’re done or even if you don’t read it, google some of those key words and groups above and you’ll find enough reading to keep you busy for the rest of your life.
