Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled!
If we could remove the drag of the mediocre element in ancestry, were it only for a few generations, we should sensibly eliminate regression or create a stock of exceptional men. This is precisely what is done by the breeder in selecting and isolating a stock until it is established. - Carl Pearson

Duke Karl Theodor Of Bavaria Issues First Edict Banning Secret Societies.
Started 1784-06-22Ended 1784-06-22
Several ex and discontented members of the Bavarian Illuminati got word up to Duke Karl about plans the Illuminati had against seated royalty and the Catholic church - which the Duke was both. The Duke issued an edict which stated that all secret societies that were unauthorized by the government were illegal and to be disbanded. The edict did not specifically state that the Freemasons and the Illuminati were the targets, but the groups were not authorized and fell under the persecution of the government of Bavaria.
