This is the great object held out by this association; and the means of attaining it is illumination, enlightening the understanding by the sun of reason which will dispell the clouds of superstition and of prejudice.
Let this circumstance of our constitution therefore be directed to this noble purpose, and then all the objections urged against it by jealous tyranny and affrighted superstition will vanish.
The human race will then become one family, and the world will be the dwelling of Rational Men.
And of all illumination which human reason can give, none is comparable to the discovery of what we are, our nature, our obligations, what happiness we are capable of, and what are the means of attaining it.
Morality will perform all this; and Morality is the fruit of Illumination.

I am proud to be known to the world as the founder of the Illuminati.
The hankering of the mind is irresistible.
My general plan is good, though in the detail there may be faults.
But alas, they are all sadly deficient, because they leave us under the domination of political and religious prejudices; and they are as inefficient as the sleepy dose of an ordinary sermon.
Nothing would be more profitable to us than a right history of mankind.
The first task of the association must therefore be to form the young members.
