The illuminati are masters at rituals. They have learn it from the best. And always, always is it done out in plain sight. Because whatever happens must be done out of consent. As in, the "victims" must agree to what is being done. Silent consent will do. In their world, not in the real world, where the real power lies.
The illuminati must lie and cheat their way to success. But whatever they do can only be a shadow of the real power in the world. But it will do, if there is nothing that will challenge it.
If no one turns on the light. I doesn't matter how big the lie is, it will prevail because there is nothing else. But if you turn on the smallest of lights, no amount of darkness can prevail.
