The truth at last
Toronto -- I was shocked to read William Christian's letter suggesting a link between Michael Ignatieff and the Illuminati (The Ignatieff Code -- May 10). A cursory reading of Canadian history will make clear that control of our nation has passed back and forth between two lesser-known Masonic groups, the Ignorati and the Obscuri. The Illuminati, alas, have shown no interest in taking over.
And even if they wanted to rule Canada, they wouldn't do so by a method so cumbersome as to require their man to win two elections -- first for the Liberal Party leadership, and then the general election -- to become prime minister. The Illuminati do not trust the fate of nations to the dubious wisdom of the general populace.
As a conspiracy-minded acquaintance once remarked shortly before he disappeared, "If voting made a difference, they wouldn't let you vote."
