Nah, the game is just a satire. Within the twisted game world, no group is really ethical (everyone being part of the hidden agenda of a player's power network), and all fanatics are totally so (despising every mildly differing splinter group). That's why I said it wasn't to be taken seriously.

But now that I think about it, the twisted game world seems a much better model for RWT or any public forum on the 'net than a world which does include "ethical" and "pragmatic". :-) Probably because pragmatic people have given up on public forums already, and ethics is lost in anonymity.

Still, Illuminati (or the card game variant) is a fun pastime. It does have a special quality which Monty Python shows had: if you watch a serious news show afterwards, the real world seems utterly ridiculous, too. (I mean, hey, the NFL pros controlling the Vatican does open up a few interesting possibilities, doesn't it? :-)
