The Lamp of Diogenes: A Worthy Goal for the Welfare of Mankind

“In this time, when the games and abuses of secret societies were without end,
I wanted to make use of this human weakness for a real and worthy goal, the welfare of mankind
(…) I wanted what the heads of the ecclesiastical and secular powers should
do and want by virtue of their offices.” (Johann Adam Weishaupt, The Lamp of Diogenes 1804, pg. 329.)
