You can't just join the Illuminati, they recruit you. You must show a willingness to help them move forth their agenda.
You also must be willing to be involved or go along with:
1. Child molestations or Pedophilia
2. Child/human sacrifice
3. Satan worship
4. Help enslave humanity
5. Your morals, ethics and principles have to be nonexistent
This what I could come up this right now, their are a lot more and they are not good for anything.
Once you out live your usefulness they will dispose of you, whether physically or otherwise. They also control the valve of money so one day your a millionaire the next day the money is worthless.
Beside people should only be famous because of their contribution to humanity not because they have talents.
