But if the Illuminati are running everything behind the scenes, if they’re extremely influential, etc., then why in heaven’s name would they communicate with each other via funny hand gestures on TV? The most influential people in the world communicate via hand signals and handshakes? Is there a more primitive way to communicate in the age of the Internet? And what are the hand gestures supposed to be saying? “I’m one of the Illuminati, too”? Presumably people in the know would already have access to the membership list. It doesn’t add up for me.
