Mitch Horowitz on the Illuminati
The editor who announced the new biography of Robert Anton Wilson, Mitch Horowitz, has penned a new piece, "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Illuminati,"
In the piece, Mr. Horowitz explains who the Illuminati really were and why they were admirable. He discusses Adam Weishaupt and explains other details of Illuminati history that will be familiar to readers of Robert Anton Wilson.
Here is a bit of of the piece, written in question and answer form:
What evidence do we have that the Illuminati still exists today?
None – other than the assertions of irresponsible and, I think, cynical conspiracy theorists, such as radio host Alex Jones.
Of course, the Illuminati are still around — my friends and I are members. But although I follow Mitch Horowitz on Twitter and have written about him here, he doesn't know me, so we can forgive his mistake.
