Good morning to everyone! My name is Clark. Not too long ago I promised, in a previous post, that I would soon write a piece on secret societies, so below I am going to take you briefly into the conspiracies of secret societies (if any).
What Are Secret Societies, Anyway?
Basically secret societies are organizations that keep their membership and/or activities secret from the general public. For some of them, the very existence of the society is kept a secret, whereas there are some we know to exist even if we don’t know much of anything else about them.
A very well-known secret society, which you may have heard of at some point or another, is Freemasonry. Being a secret society you wouldn’t expect to know much of who their members are or what they do, but still, in this time and age when (almost) everything can be found on Google, I have managed to garner some information.
Such as that Freemasons are encouraged to believe in a Supreme Being who is also called the “Grand Architect of the Universe”. And that their temples and rituals have put them in conflict with the Catholic Church. It is said that Freemasons shake hands by using secret handshakes. Masters and apprentices have different handshakes to tell them apart. It is also said that discussion of religion and politics are banned in Freemasonry.
There are also secret societies that don’t have a good agenda. For instance, The Ku Klux Klan in the United States promotes racist agendas.
The Illuminati is another secret society that I think many people have heard of before. It aims to replace organized religion with “illumination through reason”.
There are also less well-known, or more secretive, societies. Such as The Knights of Pythias, an organization that practiced “brotherly love”. Make what you will of that.
There is also The Ancient Order of the Foresters, which offered health benefits to its working class members because state health insurance has not begun in England at the time.
A society with a rather eye-catching name is The Independent Order of Odd Fellows. It is a group with ideals of truth, love and friendship.
Freemasonry has been claimed to be involved in many conspiracies through the ages. For instance, they are said to have infiltrated the British judiciary system, therefore giving Freemasons an advantage when they are in court.
Freemasonry is also said to overlap with The Illuminati, or is controlled by them, and it is claimed that Illuminati Freemasons secretly control many aspects of society (including government) while trying to establish a secret authoritarian world government called the New World Order.
There is even a rumor that The Ku Klux Klan is closely tied to Freemasonry.
Besides the one above, The Illuminati has been linked to other conspiracies – orchestrating the violent French Revolution which featured the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte, arranging the assassination of JFK, and creating the Beatles to control the minds of youths through the use of so-called “trigger words” in their lyrics.
That’s it for Now!
Other mysterious societies throughout history include the Knights Templar, Skull and Bones, Bilderberg, the Elders of Zion, and the Rosicrucians. I may write more regarding secret societies (maybe the New World Order?) in the future, but this is all for now. I hope you liked it.
