Are we living in a RAW world?

I sometimes get Tweets from people asking if he are living in the world that Robert Anton Wilson wrote about. Lately, I seem to see a lot of stories that sound like a scene in Illuminatus! or an extension of RAW's other writings:

The Vatican's bank is rocked by scandal again. (Hat tip, hagbard celine).

The Department of Homeland Security has warned its employees not to read a particular Washington Post article. Roman Tsivkin, my source, thought at first the article was satire.

Virginia's attorney general wants to ban oral sex. (To protect the children, of course. He's the GOP candidate for governor, naturally.)

Virginia's attorney general was,
in fact, characteristic of the best type of dominant male in the world at this time. He was fifty-five
years old, tough, shrewd, unburdened by the complicated ethical ambiguities which puzzle
intellectuals, and had long ago decided that the world was a mean son-of-a-bitch in which only the
most cunning and ruthless can survive. He was also as kind as was possible for one holding that
ultra-Darwinian philosophy; and he genuinely loved children and dogs, unless they were on the site
of something that had to be bombed in the National Interest. He still retained some sense of humor,
despite the burdens of his almost godly office, and, although he had been impotent with his wife for
nearly ten years now, he generally achieved orgasm in the mouth of a skilled prostitute within 1.5 minutes.
