I read a quote written by George Washington and the quote seems like the democratic society in United States is founded by illuminati.?

here is the quote:

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am.

The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a separation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.”

    The final sentence is terribly vague and I have a feeling he meant it to be. 'Instrument' is a vague noun in this context, and 'may have had these objects' means what? Principles can be objects of knowledge, if you really want to obfuscate things, but obviously he isn't mentioning individual people or even particular parties - only Democratic Societies, whatever he meant by that. Remember, the Democratic Party didn't exist yet. And the final clause is also mysterious. The only possible explanation I can come up with is he is saying that the Illuminati may have caused people to become alienated from their government. When did this happen? During the Revolutionary war?

    Many of the founders were members of the occult and secret society's......Benjamin Franklin among others attended secret orgies and secretive sexual sacrifices all the time.

    A Mason, Benjamin Franklin's links to occult secret societies have long been known. The Hellfire Club, a secret society that conducted black masses and orgies. The bizarre, occult practices are still going on today in secret societies like the Bohemian club. The Hellfire Club was no ordinary club. Located deep beneath the disguise of an innocent looking church in England, members of the Hellfire Club descended hundreds of feet deep into the earth; into a series of excavated tunnels, rooms and caverns; where members fornicated with prostitutes; and occult sacrifices were offered to Satan.

    There is a sculpture of George Washington in the exact same pose as Baphomet

      Just google George Washington and Baphomet to see the similarities of the sculptures for yourself

    George Washington, writing in 1798 was talking about the real Illuminati, the Bavarian not-particularly secret society founded in 1776 as a cut-price version of Free Masonry, not the non-existent Illuminati which too many people worry about today.

    What you have done is misunderstood what a Democratic Society (proper noun) is, and the difference between it and democratic society (adjective and noun).

    Now you may have made an honest mistake, but my intuition is that you have deliberately made that error.
