The Illuminati (which means [the] “enlightened ones”) is (or was) a secret society. Adam Weishaupt, a philosopher and lawyer, created it in 1776. In 1785., it was outlawed in Bavaria. Originally, they opposed superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power. They supported women’s education and gender equality. It's believed that the Illuminati has abandoned its old ways and is now more focused on world domination. Some people think that the Illuminati have infiltrated and secretly control all major banks, governments, music, and movie stars.
