Mainstream media

Finally, the BBC acknowledges the influence of the two Bobs' Illuminatus! trilogy, as one source of the myth/legend conspiracy theory about a sinister "Illuminati" which appears so popular now, but without the balancing cheerfulness and cynicism of the Discordian resistance.

In essence, trying to appear 'knowing' it seem people have adopted the mysterious hand signals, the gossip, the paranoia (Eyes Wide Shut and the Monarch/Manchurian Candidate stuff) without balancing that with the optimistic aspect.

They worry that the music business has been taken over by a nasty corporate entity, but haven't actually read the books, and appear to know nothing of  Laughing Buddha Jesus Phallus Inc.

Hey ho.  If people prefer horror movies to life-enhancing input, who 'am' 'I' to disillusion them.
