Bizarre conspiracy theory claims The Beatles were created by the Illuminati to encourage US kids to take soft drugs
A BIZARRE conspiracy claims The Beatles were created by the Illuminati as part of a plot to introduce American youngsters to drugs.
The bonkers theory – known as the Aquarian Conspiracy – was started by former MI6 officer John Coleman in the 1990s, but it has been doing the rounds again in the run up to the 50th anniversary of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in June.
Coleman claimed the band’s success really took off with help from the Tavistock Institute For Human Relations – a British organisation which studies group behaviour, but which conspiracy theorists believe had a hidden agenda to engineer the world’s culture.
Theorists believe The Beatles cracking the US market was aided by the Illuminati with the intention of “’taking control of education in America with the intent and purpose of utterly and completely destroying it.”
Coleman claimed the masterminds of the plot planned to use “rock music and drugs to rebel against the status quo, thus undermining and eventually destroying the family unit.”
