Back when we first began this enterprise – we started out calling it an online magazine. Except that it wasn’t (not really / not yet). It’s wasn’t an online newspaper either, but it is definitely more than a just blog or simple newsletter. For now we’ll stick to the term “online publication” while we continue to build things out and grow it.
We’ve chosen to set our little publication up as a social enterprise (in that we offer subscriptions, sell branded merchandise, and accept donations). A small portion of the proceeds will be utilized to continue building the publication – but the greater portion of income generated will go towards funding humanitarian endeavors and set aside to create a legacy fund that will help fellow Illuminatiam to build social enterprises of their own. In this way we hope to bootstrap or help leverage one another up to achieve things that none of us might be able to accomplish on our own.
It begins here… on a small scale
It’s taken us a long time (about 2 years) to get things to this stage. We’ve experienced a few hiccups along the way (2019 was a year of personal setbacks and major health issues). Then our web mistress accidently deleted the entire database, along with all of the articles and pages we had published previously. She decided to take advantage of it being down to redesign the entire concept and switch it over to the WordPress platform instead of the JOOMLA CMS it started out on.
We have also had to contend with some major undermining (by individuals we thought we could trust). Individuals who claim to be in favor of unifying Initiates & Members – but who clearly demonstrate that they are only interested in doing so if everyone falls into line under their leadership and control
We’ve continued to plug along (slowly but surely) toward our goal.
And that dear friends, constitutes committment & determination!
We have this great vision for what we’d like to accomplish with Project-Illuminati… and we’re not about to let life’s circumstances or a few destructive individuals hold us down or hold us back!
